LOL I'm mostly just trying to recoup my losses after entering everyone in feds! lol I haven't totaled the costs up since I cut my herd in half but i was pushin over a mill every rollover just on entering feds. It's still a huge chunk and if i breed to one nice stud then i'm toast.
Same here w/the mares Glory. My yearlings go roughly at week 4 unless I bred them at the start of the month and then I just let them go till 2 year olds. I don't do a rush breeding at the beginning at the month so really by week 4 for most everyone they are actually 2 year olds already.
Today we purchased an Impresario colt off craigslist. We will be picking him up on Thursday or Friday to start the long journey home to Florida where he will grow and hopefully make his sire proud. Only reason he is a part of our lives is they're moving and they say he doesn't have a pretty enough head for halter but more a performance head.

Was asking because I read his sire showed in Scottsdale AZ. I'm in AZ lol. You have one long journey ahead to get your new pride home. But a trip very well worth for such a wonderful gift. You are quite lucky :)
Yes. He did show there and I'm hoping to show my colts there someday. His dad is now in South Africa so I do hope this colt proves to be a truly great horse.
