Sonesta Farms to host Sixth Annual Equine Reproductive Seminar
February 23-24, 2008

For the sixth time, Sonesta Farms will host an Equine Reproduction Seminar at which mare and stallion owners will receive in depth education and training in the area of equine reproduction. This seminar will be conducted by the esteemed equine reproduction specialist Jos Mottershead, who is very well known for his wonderful web site at http://www.Equine-Reproduction.com 

An Overview of the Seminar:

 

Although the course is easily understandable, it is intensive and covers all aspects of equine reproduction and breeding. It includes study of the anatomy and physiology of both the mare and the stallion reproductive systems; management of mare and stallion for optimal breeding; the mare's reproductive cycle and hormonal relationships; fertility evaluation; manipulation of the estrous cycle in the mare; techniques for live cover and artificial insemination of the mare; and the use of fresh, cooled, or frozen semen.

We will discuss collection of semen from the stallion and the various methods, techniques, and products available for collection, evaluation and various aspects of semen analysis; preparation of semen for freezing, transport or on-farm use; identifying stallion or semen handling problems and trouble shooting them; and sexual behavior of the stallion and how it can be modified.

The pregnant mare will be discussed including the hormonal activity present during pregnancy; care of the pregnant mare, and identifying and dealing with common pregnancy problems. Needs of the foaling mare and her resulting foal are addressed. Determining IgG levels in neonates is discussed as well as proper supplementation. We will present an overview of common neonatal problems as well as a brief overview of the more advanced equine reproduction technologies such as embryo transfer, sperm sexing, and current research taking place in the equine reproduction field.

Cost for the seminar is $250. Please contact us for more information. You may register online from Equine Reproduction.com’s seminar page.

Feiner Fantasy is Champion at her Hanoverian Mare Inspection

Our homebred mare, Feiner Fantasy (known as "Fancy") was inspected for breeding approval by the American Hanoverian Society on August 27, 2007.  She presented herself very well and was champion (high scoring) mare at the inspection and also received her title of "Elite Mare Candidate." To complete her requirements to become an Elite Mare, she will do a performance test next year at the Hanoverian inspection and then, if she passes, she will receive the title of Elite Mare when she gives birth to her first Hanoverian foal.  We are proud of her.

 

 

Saddle Up for S.I.R.E Ride was Lots of Fun

Sonesta Farms saddled up for the annual fundraising trail ride benefiting S.I.R.E. (Houston's therapeutic equestrian center) held on October 14, 2006.  The ride was held at 7IL Ranch in Cat Springs.  Hundreds of horses and riders, some in buggies and carriages and even some in costume, showed up to help raise money for the program by riding the 12 mile course and gorging on a barbeque buffet afterwards.  I fun time was held by all, but.... next time you see them, ask Jennifer and the two Dianes what it means to be "on the orange trail."  You'll enjoy the answer!

Proud Meadows Sport Horse Breed Shows Went Well

   

This was a first time USDF breed show for three of Sonesta Farms' clients' horses and they all did very well.  Shelli's pinto Oldenburg, Spectaculare, took a first place in the three year old fillies class.  Jennifer's Friesian/Arabian cross mare, Midnight's Magic Genie, was second in the 4 year old and over class and was champion of the Materiale class!  And Ellen's Knabstrupper colt, Macarns Axxion, was third in the large 2 year old colt class.  Most importantly, a fun time was had by all.

The Irish Dancer Invited to Exhibit his Jumping Talent Before the Irish Horse Board!

We cannot tell you how exciting it was to be invited to bring Whiskey, our homebred Irish Sport Horse, to Prescott Farms on September 18, 2004 to show off his jumping abilities in front of the Irish Horse Board representatives.  The Board members where at Prescott Farms to inspect mares, foals and stallions for registration and breeding approval.  The hosts took it a step further and invited us to show the Board what the American born Irish horses are doing in the show ring.  Whiskey was up to the challenge, jumping a 5 foot course of jumps and getting huge grins of approval from the Board members.  We were so proud!  Whiskey will enter the Grand Prix show jumping ring this year.  I forgot my camera, so unless someone else who was there took pics, I am out of luck.

Homebred, BF Moon Fyre, Approved by Rheinland-Pfalz-Saar for Breeding Warmbloods

Our four year old Fyre One daughter, BF Moon Fyre, was presented to the RPSI for mare approval inspection on August 17, 2004.  She looked lovely and got high marks for her conformation. She was placed into the RPSI's Main Mare Book which means that, when bred to an RPSI approved warmblood stallion, the resulting foal will be registered warmblood with RPSI!  Inspector Otto Shalter commented that the warmbloods need more good Arabian blood in them from time to time to help refine them and keep them from getting too heavy.  We are now dreaming about which stallion to use on her someday.

First, she was Reserve Champion at the 2001 Pinto Horse World Show (see previous article below).

Equine Reproduction Seminar a Huge Hit October 27-28, 2001!

 

We can’t begin to tell you what a wonderful seminar was presented here by Joss Mottershead of Equine Reproduction .Com last weekend. It was absolutely amazing all that we learned. We had a full house, with 25 participants listening intently as Joss spoon fed us the most incredible information. Then each one of us got to have a hands-on experience as we carefully reached into one of Sonesta Farms’ kindly broodmares to find the cervix. Most wonderful of all was watching not one, but TWO stallions being taught to collect from the ground without a phantom mare. Both were quite enthusiastic and learned quickly. We highly recommend this seminar to all of you. The handout material alone was worth the registration fee. Visit Equine Reproduction.Com’s web site for dates and locations of the seminar elsewhere in the country. 

BF Saffyre takes Reserve Champion in Pinto Horse World Show in the Futurity Class for 2 Year Olds in August, 2001!

They debuted at training level dressage in April, taking 3rd place with a 57% score and will begin jumping together next year. Glitter won his open training level 1 and 4 classes with trainer Mickee Shaw with scores up to 67.60%. This guy is a doll!
