Breeding Your Mare at Brazeau Thoroughbred Farms

pauls son nurseryBrazeau Thoroughbred Farms breeds Thoroughbred racehorses in a professional and safe environment. Our farm provides quality care and offers a unique home to our broodmares, foals, and yearlings, with a dedicated manager and staff living at the Ranch.

Brazeau Thoroughbred Farms is dedicated to the physical, social and mental development of young horses, through a safe and healthy foaling process. This begins with the prenatal care of the mare, plenty of sunshine and exercise and an extensive nutritional program that is regularly adjusted according to the individual needs.

Brazeau Thoroughbred Farms takes pride in sending horses to trainers ready to go. They are delivered looking fantastic with excellent foot condition.  They’re physically fit and never fat; Their coats are good and their teeth are always in good condition.

Looking forward to the next few years we anticipate the first starts on the new recruits hitting the track this fall and in 2016, one of those will be First Stone, a son of Unusual Heat and a half brother to Bob Black Jack.

Another horse that looks very promising is the half to Wild In The Saddle, a colt named Luke Thirteen who has posted some good works and has always been a farm favorite. A full sister to CHAULK O LATTEY is training at the farm and will make her debut in 2016. We all look forward to training the very fancy SHACKLEFORD colt, affectionately known as “Shaq” who will be going to Richard Mandella for owner Peter Johnson in 2016.

We will also be represented at the sales with some very high caliber yearlings by STORMY JACK in 2015, and possibly the first offerings by MAKE MUSIC FOR ME and WORLD RENOWNED in January 2016.too.

The Brazeau’s and Ranch Manager Anderson are getting their first homebreds ready for the races.  In the breeding shed the new stallions at Brazeau have really shown their class and the ability to sire high quality foals, the first crop from both MAKE MUSIC FOR ME and WORLD RENOWNED have exceeded all expectations. 

In 2015, Anderson bred a filly by Silic named CHAULK O LATTEY who is ready to start for trainer Richard Baltas. The 2015 yearling crop includes First Stone, a colt by Unusual Heat out of Molly’s Prospector, making him a half brother to Bob Black Jack; and Lucky Patrick, a son of Lucky Pulpit—Brandi Freeze, by Hennessy.

We don’t breed a horse for a fad. Brazeau Thoroughbred Farms really looks at them structurally. We’ve tried to get the most-correct stallions because we want the horses to be appealing to the eye, as well as sound, correct, and fast.

Typical equine breeding season begins in the spring and continues through fall. As daylight hours increase with springtime, particular brain receptors in the mare are triggered, which cause her to go into heat. Once her reproductive cycle begins, the mare is ready for breeding. Given that a foal’s gestation period lasts 11 months, Thoroughbred breeding usually begins during the winter months.

Breeding and genetics play a role in any horse’s temperament. Make an informed breeding decision by contacting Brazeau Thoroughbred Farms. Once the mare is in heat, we introduce a stallion to her. Should she become pregnant from their meeting, special care must be taken for the duration of the gestation period.

Mares require specific vaccinations to protect the foal from transmissible diseases. Also, nutritional requirements significantly increase during the mare’s final months of pregnancy. To ensure a healthy foal, Brazeau Thoroughbred Farms carefully monitors the mare and regularly exercises her for at least the first six months of her pregnancy.

In Thoroughbred horses, the right lineage is crucial. Mares are often given a breeding soundness exam (BSE) in order to ensure the safety and success of the horse breeding. A BSE can include a visual and manual exam, blood work, ultrasound, tissue cultures, biopsy, and hormonal checks. The blood work and biopsies check for infection, parasites, metabolic and hormonal imbalances, and other conditions or issues that may affect the mare's ability to give birth to a healthy foal after breeding. The Brazeau Thoroughbred Farm’s veterinarian is trained in managing BSE examinations as required.

While having a healthy mare is crucial for breeding, you won't get a good foal without a sound stallion. Brazeau Thoroughbred Farm's Standing at Stud Stallions offer proven bloodlines and reliable lineage for breeding.
