Licensed Appraiser

I am a member of the American Society of Equine Appraisers and as such am a licensed appraiser.  I take into consideration, the end use of the thoroughbred whether to be used for breeding purposes with a commercial emphasis or racing purposes.

I also consider syndication value for group ownership andrace record and resources of the owner.  In short I provide a unique approach to accurate value utilizing aspects beyond simple the conjecture of what a horse would bring in the sale.

Since I have been attending public auction thoroughbred sales for well over 30 years, and I have seen an enormous number of horses sold.  My expertise on public auction value is based on this large body of experience.

I have provided many written appraisals and employed a variety of methodologies. 

Call me if you need an appraisal done.  I know that you will appreciate my work.

Client Holdings

I am often asked for professional assistance in evaluating the holding of a client and making suggestions as to what to cull and what to hold.  Additionally, appraising the herd from year to year or at shorter intervals is required for various reasons.  It is for that reason that at times I place client bloodstock under this category.

STALLION SELECTION AND MARE MATING   

I wish to thank the stallion owners who are offering foal shares, up to first money deals and the farms standing these sires, combination purchase deals and the season owners who own the shares, and the lifetime breeding rights holders in these stud horses. Cooperation between mare owners and the owners of seasons is more essential than ever. 

I recommend that you simply click on the Shogun Ad so that you can better appreciate my concept, "that it is better to do business that works for both parties, then to do no business at all."  If you in fact share this point of view, then you will certainly enjoy dealing with me in your thoroughbred breeding endeavors.

Additionally, I have supplied information on these stallions that I feel will assist breeders with their selection process.  This information is of value to the stallion season owner as well as the mare owner.

Variable Stud Fee Payment Opportunities

Stallions are owned in a variety of ways from sole ownership, to a group of people owning a percentage of a horse at stud, to stallions that are syndicated.  There are many people that simply cannot provide foal sharing arrangements for anything other then mares that they feel will provide the opportunity of extremely high sales results.  This arrangement is advantageous to stallion season owners.

However, the opportunity to provide flexible terms with buyout opportunities at with a variety of incentives  at different times during the pregnancy, weanling cycle ranging from when the mare is pronounced in foal for 60 days, to when a mare is sold at public auctions, to a payment program which allows for payment from sales proceeds is alternatively attractive to stallion season owners who desire to get a predetermined yield on their season. 

Many farms today have high costs of standing stallions that are passed on to the stallion owners.  However, many farms and season owners are willing to make attractive offers to accommodate the needs of breeders.  There maybe opportunities for discounts based on multiple matings that can further reduce stud fee expenses.
