imperative that you have confidence, after experiences or research, in your

face of Berry Sweet Whizard's top teeth are about 1/8th of an inch in front
of the bottom teeth's front face. We have heard this is something that
occurs from time to time with horses having one of his bloodlines. Because
that bloodline excels in reining, this minor defect does not concern many
breeders, but it does concern others.
feel uncomfortable with decisions made by the inseminating vet, we will
communicate those with you. If after three shipments you mare is not
pregnant, we may require that you move your mare to a more experienced
veterinarian or reproductive center before shipping additional semen.
mind that there is no magic "percentage of motility." A stallion with 10%
motility might settle more mares than a stallion with 80% motility. The total NUMBER of progressively motile sperm matters
more, not the
percentage. This is why we send the maximum amount of extended semen that
the shipping container will hold, unless we had to keep semen for use on the
farm. We will give you as much as we can!
Ridge Quarter Horses/Toni Perdew will not be responsible for any vet or
other bills incurred by the mare owner/agent as a result of or preparation
for breeding or due to this agreement in any way.
