Fair enough increase imo, although he might be nudging a price that would require the offspring to be sold on the mainland - almost certainly through Inglis... not sure the Tassie bench can support a $35-40k median to make a modest profit & Qld is an awfully long way to travel.

If there’s only 50 odd locals, could they transport him to somewhere in Vic mid season?

That, or subsidise the travel for Tas breeders? What’s the difference between 8% of the fee (or thereabouts) being a travel subsidy, rather than a discount?

mid season is thereabouts when most of our mares start to breed Red cos of our weather conditions. from what I am hearing the mainland mares are booking in to come here and why wouldn't you. agistment is so much cheaper , vet fees cheaper etc . it soon covers the trip over and back.

I can only hope that many jump on the bandwagon as there will be some here who find the price more than they can cover at this point. as Petite says - itll take a while for the bonus system to filter through....

I would think that if Armidale have any say in things, they would surely look after their loyal customers and try and do them the best deal they are able ?

You would expect that from any stud, being loyal. We have always been looked after with them but wondering now his fee has risen significantly if there is room to move for them. If I was to send my most commercial girl, it means only one goes to him this time, the others I'll have to look elsewhere or to Alpine Eagle and in saying that have absolutely 2 cracking fillies from him, yet the standout is the Needs Further filly, she's a beast.

Reckon the arrival of Alpine Eagle would of diluted his numbers SC. That and the continuing decline in the island’s active broodmare numbers.
It's only called gambling when you lose
