News of Lacrosse’s last foal has been largely exaggerated. In truth he was meant to be her last foal and, until very recently he was going to be. The ball started rolling again when my vet came out for some routine work and asked why I wasn’t breeding her again. My response sounded pretty lame as a few management changes had resolved the issues I had been seeing in her.
Fast forward to the GOV inspection earlier this month… Unfortunately Ollivander didn’t strut his stuff, but the inspectors thought Lacrosse was up for round 5 and encouraged me to give it another try. Needless to say, I didn’t need much in the way of encouragement. 😉
I’ve decided to try something new this time and have settled on a stallion newly approved by the GOV, Sir Sinclair. He was collected today and I am bringing Lacrosse up to the clinic tomorrow to be inseminated. Needless to say, I am a nervous wreck and I am already dreaming about seeing a filly by her side this time next year.
