Calido I – Acord II – Contender

An impressive sport record, excellent character, and impeccable pedigree make Calucci an exciting option for sport horse breeders. Calucci competed in Germany through S-level and in the U.S. he competed in Grand Prix’s with both professional and amateur riders. He has proven his reliability in the show ring time and again, earning top ribbons at shows such as HITS, Manchester, Devon, and WEF.

Calucci is sired by Calido I, who was ranked 1st in jumping at his Stallion Performance Test. Calido’s offspring have earned over 2.78 million Euros in sport and there are over 225 Calido offspring successful at S Level (advanced). Calucci’s grandsire, Acord II, was the winner of his Stallion Test with 146 points overall, including scores of 9 or higher for jumping ability and rideability. Acord II has sired S-level showjumpers and dressage horses. Calucci’s granddam had a strong competition career herself and her offspring have competed up to 1.6 meters. Great-grandsire Contender is legendary and his influence has been felt across all the major registries and with showjumping, eventing, and dressage breeders.

Calucci retired from sport in 2014 and began his breeding career in 2015. From Calucci’s first foal crops, we’re consistently seeing his sensible attitude, athletic type and movement, strong topline, and good bone. He should add some size and does very well with mares with some blood or refinement in their pedigree. Calucci’s early foals have shown natural talent free jumping and we look forward to his first foal crop starting undersaddle in 2019.

MARE INFORMATION
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.

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.
