If you do not breed in 2010, you must believe this market is going to be just as bad in 2012 - think about, a foal conceived in 2010 will be a yearling of 2012...I think the market will be much better then and those yearlings will have been conceived on rock bottom stud fees.

IMO it seems like a better opportunity than breeding in 2009 was.

The commercial real estate mortage default debacle has not yet hit the fan but is coming and soon.

Yes, I do believe the 2012 economy is going to be as bad or worse than it is now..

Thus far there hasn't been any rock bottom adjustments to the Kentucky stallion fees. I suspect the farms don't plan on taking too much of a hit. More likely they will minimally reduce their fees and just breeder fewer mares, hoping things will balance out.

It's sort of a catch 22 because if you drop it too much then you might piss off the people who paid considerably more...

Maybe it's a good time to negotiate?

Honestly I think the economy has affected many areas of the country, but the Midwest seems pretty strong with less unemployment numbers than elsewhere. I think now is probably going to be one of the best years for deals on stud fees than we might ever see again

I think the guys that can pick up cheap, well bred yearlings and get them to the races can make a bucket of $ next year. The commercial breeders and even the breed to race folks have too much up front cost, including stud fees, and I can't see how they could consistently beat the odds at this point of the game.

We will be breeding at least four of our mares- especially looking forward to those Adena Springs stallions that will be gracing Ontario very soon!

We are in a better spot than some breeders though, as we both own our own farms, so don't have to board out. Certainly keeps the costs down!

I am down to 4 mares and you can guess who I am going to be breeding to. :D :D
Having your own facility and standing a millionaire does have its advantages that is for sure.

I am even considering breeding my lightening fast Valid Expectations mare to a QH and running QH in the next few years. Hialeah is having a 40 day meet this year for good purse money! and I love Florida in the winter! :D

I have 4 mares, I'm selling 3 of them, and will breed the 1 I keep for next year.

I don't know for sure exactly where I'll breed, or who I'll breed her to, but I do plan on breeding for 2010.

I'm also selling most of the horses I have remaining. 3 of the weanlings for this year, plus all of my yearlings.

I wasn't going to at first, but changed my mind and am sending my mare to Sir Shackleton for 2010.

I have been thinking about breeding my fillies. One is a catagory five (storm cat) and the other is a Server the flag (deputy minister). I am looking for someone who wants to bread to them this season and send them back to me next season in foal to the same stallions. Is that reasonable?
