"Marketing is Enthusiasm Transferred ..."

I LOVE this! "Marketing is enthusiasm transferred to the customer." -Gregory Ciotti. Because in my world, it's true. Marketing within the sport horse breeding community is most of what I do. I help stallion owners market their stallions; I design websites, ads, and other marketing pieces; and of course I market my own services. And this is a really great definition of what I do, what stallion owners do, and why we do it. ...read more

Old Data and New Research On Gestation Length

A recent article in the Kentucky Equine Research Equinews library of articles points out new research on what the "normal" length of gestation is for mares - but mares are not known for reading the same book you did. The point of the article is that our expectation of normal - 340 days - was determined over 50 years ago - and only with Thoroughbreds in northern European countries. But pregnancy lengths are different all the time, even for the same mare bred to the same stallion with other obvious factors the same. ...read more

Contifax

Grand Prix and Hunter Derby Champion!
Contifax is a Contender son from the Ramiro line, combining two outstanding performance lines. Contifax demonstrated his value early in his career, with several first places in tests for young jumpers and continued to the World Cup level. This highly talented Holsteiner Contender son was called the best jumper stallion of his year after his approval.

The son of Calypso II, Contender was one of the most frequented studs of the Holsteiner Association. He completed his achievement test in Adelheidsdorf as the best of his age-group. At the 2006 Holsteiner approvals, Contender had five approved sons, confirming his exceptional position within the Holsteiner breeding program.

Ritual comes from the famous 776 mare line, to which Ramiro, a sire of the century, belongs. Ritual is one of the very few Hanoverian stallions ever licensed for breeding by the Holsteiner Verband. The worldwide dominance of this unique performance line 776 is further documented by numerous sires such as Acorado (State Stud Celle), Calvados I and II, Cortino I and II, Landos, Ramirado (Holsteiner), Captain Incipit, Lord Incipit (Bavaria), Highvalley, Larenco (NL), Lordanos, Rouletto (Oldenburg) and many others.

Since coming to Canada he has continued his winning ways in both the jumper and hunter rings. Contifax earned good ribbons in 6 of 6 Open Jumper classes at the 2014 Royal Manitoba Winter Fair. Contifax went on to win a Canadian Classic Hunter Derby with a score of 110 in 2014.

In 2015 Contifax has won multiple Derbies in the Canadian Hunter Derby Series, including the $15,000 RMSJ Hunter Derby. Contifax finished the 2015 Derby Season as both the Western and Canadian Hunter Derby Series regular season points Champion.
