Our eventing stallion Avebury WF has been doing quite well in his second year of competition undersaddle with Ryan Wood! He is competing regularly at Preliminary and continues to show much promise for the upper levels.
So as the daily schedule at Phillip Dutton's barn is fairly tight and we can not steal him for breeding duties several times each week - we are offering Avebury for breeding in 2011 by Frozen Semen ONLY. The semen was frozen at SBS and of good quality. There are 2 options for mare owners:
1) buy frozen by the dose
2) buy a LFG contract and receive up to 6 doses in 2011
We are receiving positive feedback about Avebury moving up to Intermediate in the not so distant future, so while this slight change could be viewed as an inconvenience - it is really for the big fella's benefit to stay at True Prospect Farm to focus on his career as a competition horse.
But in case anyone is concerned that he is becoming too fit or has had a personality shift...here is a snapshot from Ellie's phone at Paradise Farm Horse Trials -
He is as wild as always! :)
Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to the entire staff at Red Oak Farm and True Prospect Farm for doing such a wonderful job caring for our stallion! You guys are the best! And Ryan Wood gets loads of credit for presenting his hard work so beautifully week in and week out - you guys are a great team!
GO TEAM AVEBURY!!!!!!!
