good to hear-- I am sure they could use some time off- I dont like

stallions shuttling anyway!

Shuttling always reminds me of Scat Daddy who died far too soon.  What a fine sire he was.

I too think of Scat Daddy when I think of Sbuttling-- I think he was 11 years 

old when he died- he was a fine sire and had so much more to give---I worry

about American Pharoah-- Both his daddy and  grand daddy died much too 

young.

I worry about American Pharoah too.  So help me, if something happens to him I will raise cain everywhere I participate online.  Shuttling shortens the lives of lots of stallions in my opinion.  There are certainly some horses who do just fine, but they are all so precious to some of us!

I love to watch these magnificent horses race, but hate how the industry

squeezes the lemon dry with over breeding--- Claiborne does  not shuttle

their stallions, and I commend them for it.

I just got around to reading the Bloodhorse article on inbreeding, genetics, soundness, bone development, etc.  This shuttling is depleting diversity worldwide.

Taylor Made is allowing clients to use cryptocurrency to pay for breeding. I don’t get the whole crypto thing, but wasn’t there just a problem with crypto devaluing?
