Doctor Wendell – Rotspon – Ramiro’s Son II

 

Introducing an exciting young stallion for North American breeders.  Debonair MF is from the first foal crop of the FEI stallion Doctor Wendell MF.  Doctor Wendell earned strong finishes at the US Young Horse, Developing PSG, and Developing Grand Prix Championships.  He won the US Dressage Finals and many USDF/All-Breeds awards before being exported to Europe.  Grandsire Don Principe has been competing at the Grand Prix level for 10 years and was the 2017 US U-25 Grand Prix Champion.  The talent for the FEI runs deep in this family.

A successful in-hand youngster, Debonair’s early wins included the Two-Year Old Colts/Geldings and the Colts/Geldings Championship of Dressage at Devon and he earned scores as high as 83%.  His full-siblings have also done very well out showing, including Danae MF who was the USDF Champion for Weanling Fillies in 2014 and won the USDF Traveling Trot Trophy with a median score of 84.9%.  In 2017, Debonair debuted in the USEF Four-Year Old division.  He easily qualified for the US Young Horse Championships and finished in 5th place overall.  He is bright, quick to learn, very confident, and shows all the composure and confidence needed for a good show horse.

Debonair was licensed by the AHS and ISR/Oldenburg in the summer of 2017.  He will be available for breeding for the first time in 2018 and we’re looking forward to seeing the continued influence of this family through this next generation.

Cooled semen stallions may be collected any day except Saturday and can be shipped either via FedEx overnight or same-day Airline. Frozen semen is able to be shipped Monday thru Friday via FedEx overnight. Pick-up of both cooled and frozen semen is also available at Hilltop Farm or Select Breeders Services in Maryland.

Canadian Breeders Shipping from Moore Equine

To help our Canadian breeders save on shipping expenses and the hassle of getting an import permit, Hilltop Farm ships a limited amount of frozen semen to Moore Equine in Calgary, Alberta at the start of each breeding season for distribution within Canada. We will ship four doses of frozen semen to Moore Equine for each contract booked prior to this group shipment. Doses will be distributed at a max of two doses per cycle. If a mare is not confirmed in foal after utilizing those doses, it would be necessary for the mare owner to follow our typical import procedure to obtain semen for any additional breeding cycles. All shipment requests for semen in Canada will still be sent to Hilltop Farm and follow Hilltop’s standard notification schedule. For more information on deadlines to be included in the group shipment to Canada or to inquire about frozen semen already located in Canada contact Brittany.

Mare Management Reminders

At Hilltop Farm we want to work closely with you and your veterinarian to ensure a successful breeding season and are available for questions at any time. The following information includes some basic suggestions as well as reminders on a few requirements for your breeding contract.

Submit Foal Announcement

A Breeding Soundness Exam including a uterine culture is recommended, but not required, for all mares prior to breeding. If a mare fails to settle after two breeding cycles, Hilltop Farm will require a culture and cytology to be done at that time prior to any additional shipments of semen. We always recommend your vet checking your mare post-breeding to confirm ovulation. If a mare hangs on to a follicle longer than expected, it can be less expensive to ship additional semen than it would be to breed a second complete cycle. Getting your mare settled in foal is just the beginning. We recommend multiple pregnancy checks to help prevent cases of twins, misdiagnosed pregnancies, or lost time in the breeding season. The following schedule is what we recommend; only the first and fourth checks however are required by your breeding contract.
  • 1st check (Required): 14-16 days post ovulation - optimum time for vet to pinch off a twin if more than a single ovulation is noted.
  • 2nd check (Recommended): 28 days post ovulation – to confirm a viable pregnancy as the heartbeat normally appears by day 25.
  • 3rd check (Recommended): 35-40 days post ovulation – to confirm maintained pregnancy prior to endometrial cup formation. Mares that slip foals early may not come back into heat.
  • 4th check (Required): 55-60 days post ovulation – final confirmation of pregnancy in its critical first trimester.
Following your mare’s 55-60 day pregnancy check, please have your vet finish completing the Mare Breeding Passport and return it to Hilltop Farm by September 15th. This Passport is used in all stallion reports to various breed registries and is used to generate a Breeding Certificate so that you can register your foal.

Registration Information

Your mare’s registration and approval play just as important of a role as the stallion’s approvals when determining registration options for your foal. Please keep in mind that in order to register your foal with a specific association, your mare may first need to be presented to that registry for approval. In addition to the registries a stallion is approved with, there may be additional registration options based on your mare’s eligibility and the stallion’s credentials. If you are confused at all on registration options for a potential foal, please speak with Hilltop Farm and your breed registry PRIOR to booking your breeding.
