Book review

Breeding a stallion is not as simple as we might think. So much must be taken into account to conduct a successful breeding operation. That is why Dr. Jim McCall decided to share his 30 years of education and experience of managing over 400 stallions in this outstanding book designed to both educate and entertain.

Dr. McCall uses humorous anecdotes to highlight information that will be of interest not only to stallion owners but also to breeding shed personnel, trainers, farm managers and students of the horse. Broodmare owners as well will gain an understanding of what should occur at the farm to which they send their mares.

The Stallion is truly an exceptional reference because Dr. McCall addresses topics that are often overlooked in books on breeding, including:

collecting, handling and storing semen

disciplining and handling the stallion

dealing with unusual and unacceptable behavior >

  • pasture breeding

    the reproductive system of the stallion, including anatomy, physiology, fertility, and semen output

    nutrition

    off-season management

    how to market the Thoroughbred or racing-type stallion and how to market the stock horse or show horse-type stallion

    Dr. McCall also takes into account the economics and legalities involved in the breeding shed in his discussion of evaluation, appraisal and pricing of stallions. An appendix provides sample contracts commonly associated with stallions such as stallion lease agreements, stallion service contracts and stallion syndication agreements. A must read for everyone interested in horses!
