That's fantastic news—he's such a lovely stallion. I hope to come down in September, but it's going to be close as I leave for Sport Horse Nationals on the 13th. Liz

Robert,

One more thing - I can't believe that I am so fortunate to be only an hour and a half away from my dream stallion. It is shocking to me!!!! Please tell his owners how thankful we are to him for sending this great horse over here. It is a dream come true for us in America!!! I was so impressed after watching him win in Paris - I never imagined he would be close enough to actually touch. Its like getting to meet Elvis or something!

I am sure he is not cheap. But look what he has sired so far................
He's worth every dime.

Although I'm still a bit grumpy about Al Adeed beating Kubinec at the All Nations Cup 2 years ago, I must say I do like his offspring, especially Hathfa Al Shaqab - she looks like being a good riding horse, too rolleyes.gif

Any new pictures of Naifa around? I like her as well...

HI Eva and all

First of all congrats to the new lessees And good luck.

Secondly this stud fee, which would be equal to about US $ 10,000
should warrant to ONLY get super mares. Now I am looking forward to
$ 20,000 foals, and by what I am seeing in the photos, it can be done.

I am so sorry to hear that this beautiful stallion is not happy,and I think I know why. So may be he can be ridden and enjoy the life any horse would. Believe it or not,that will also increase the potency of a stallion.

Have a great day

I have just spoken to Robert Cass. His stud fee has not yet been set in this country. If his semen was as weak as Eva says, he would not have got all those mares in foal in Qatar. It is sad that people have to post negative comments so soon. Liz Salmon

Liz, I'm sure he was happy at his home in Qatar but he hasn't been there for a very, very long time

The successrate of getting mares pregnant from his semen in Belgium was very high, I've heard. As far as I know most of the mares was in foal in the first heat.
