Some seniors are easier keepers than other, I wouldnt hold it against someone if their 28 year old horse had some ribs showing. AP Indy’s coat is also an inch long, which is going to make any horse look more filled out.

Indy looks so fuzzy and huggable (not sure if he is)

Speaking of Indy, his son, Friesan Fire, is the 2017 Leading Sire in Maryland. For 2017 he was:
#1 Maryland sire
#2 MidAtlantic sire
#15 North America Third-Crop sire

I'm so happy for Country Life that Fire is proving to be at least a leading regional sire, and happy for Indy that his line continues through several sons and grandsons.

Friesan Fire covered 14 mares in 2017. I hope he gets more for 2018.

#15 North American Third-Crop sire might help attract some mares. Fire has actually done really good considering his limited opportunities.

Does no one chart data on return on investment by sire?

A lot harder to do that since you'd have to exclude homebreds and mare owners who got a discount (which can be quite a significant number).

I think that would be one of the lesser difficulties -- the announced stud fee could still be assigned to each foal as though it had been paid.

The data wouldn't tell you much about young sires, but for established stallions it should be fairly straightforward -- what are the average lifetime earnings of a Tapit vs an Afleet Alex on the track, (not the sales shed) in relation to their fee -- as in which is really the better value? Kind of surprised that some version of data of this type hasn't been considered in an industry that throws significant money at auction buys and stud services.

I’m happy Arrogate is adjusting well and I’m also glad to read the bit about Paulassilverlining and must admit I’m curious as to who her pasture mates are

Florida sire High Cotton pensioned
High Cotton, a prominent sire in Florida, has been pensioned from stallion duty due to declining fertility.

The 15-year-old son of Dixie Union spent his entire career at Ocala Stud in Ocala, Fla., and he will continue to reside there as a pensioner. He stood the 2017 breeding season for a fee of $4,000.

“We really saw a decline in his fertility, and the partnership just made the decision that it would be in his best interest to just look after him and not market him as a commercial stallion,” said David O’Farrell of Ocala Stud. “He’s been good to us and he’s a neat horse. He’ll have the remainder of his life here.”

It's winter in Japan, so I doubt the trees have leaves or that it is very green there at the moment. That photo was taken when it was warmer and the trees were fully leafed out. People are dressed for warm weather, not wintertime. So this is not a new photo.

Well 'nabecci' is one of the most reliable accounts one could find on the internet. ;)
I suspect that he just forgot to mention that the photo had been taken last summer.

Go nabecci go!!! :D :D

Anyway....

here are the most recent picks of Maurice(JPN) who returned to Japan from Australia on Jan 21st 2018.

-- from uma-furusato.com news (Jan 25th 2018).

The photo could have been taken while the stallion was still in the southern hemisphere where it is now summer.
