  1. An excellent podcast with Duane Miller. A must listen for mare owners looking to breed their horses. While pedigree is important, Duane notes the desired conformation and movement from a judges point of view, that may be important to consider when choosing the right stallion for your mare. At the 2014 WPC I happened to sit down behind a woman whom stated she had 5 mares she was going to breed…she was there to see who the winning stallion would be “because she was going to breed all 5 of her mares to *that* stud”. I was speechless (a phenomenon in itself) thinking to myself….”I wonder if her mares are all cookie cutter perfect in conformation and movement?” “This woman doesn’t have a clue to what she is doing”. Enjoyed this podcast. Thank you Mr Miller.

    1. Thanks for listening Anita, I am glad you found Duane’s insights to be beneficial!
