Lord Leatherdale – Negro – El Corona
The Lord Leatherdale-Negro combination that we see in Everdale has proven to be an excellent combination. Lord Leatherdale is a winning FEI stallion whose offspring have competed at the PAVO Cup Finals and World Championships for Young Horses. Everdale’s damline is particularly strong and the mares have been highly decorated, including his great-granddam who is a full sister to the approved stallion Havidoff. Grandsire Negro had a very successful FEI career and has numerous offspring competing at Grand Prix, including of course the Olympic & World Champion Valegro.
Everdale is a well-developed stallion with gaits that are scopey and powerful with abundant elasticity. He is honest and diligent in his work and gives his rider a very positive feeling. These traits contributed to Everdale being named Champion of his Stallion Performance Test in 2012 with a total of 87 points. All his scores were 8 or higher, and he received scores of 9 for the walk, canter, rideability, and attitude. In 2013 Everdale won the PAVO Cup Finals for 4-Year Olds and earned a perfect 10 from the Guest Rider. In 2017, Everdale debuted at FEI Prix St. George with great success, earning scores as high as 72%.
Everdale has proven very popular with European and US breeders. He stamps his neck, uphill balance, powerful gaits, and an excellent canter on his offspring. The oldest Everdale offspring turned 3 years old in 2016 and he already has several approved sons to his record. His early US foal crops have also been well received at inspections with numerous foals earning First Premium status with the KWPN-NA and Elsa (ds. Bugatti) named Top Filly of her ISR/Oldenburg inspection with an overall score of 8.3.

Canadian Breeders Shipping from Moore EquineTo 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 RemindersAt 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.

- 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.
Registration InformationYour 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.
