Please continue reading for further information and contact us directly if you need additional information. A non-refundable $350 booking fee is due upon signing of the Stallion Contract which will be applied to the final fee. A 10% discount to the total fee will be applied if booked before December 31 of the year preceding the breeding season (Dec. 31, 2017 for 2018 breeding season). No semen will be shipped until the entire fee is paid in full.
Booking and Collection Fees
A Collection and Shipping Fee is required and is not included in the stud fee. Veterinary collection fees, shipping fees, and container deposits will be billed by and paid directly to the collecting veterinarian. Please contact him to make arrangements.
Contact Us For Collection Schedules
Stallions are collected Monday through Friday. Emergency or weekend collections can be arranged but FedEx shipping fees will be dramatically higher.
Ordering Fresh Cooled or Frozen Semen
CLINTORD I is an actively competing stallion and therefore only available on a limited basis for collection during gaps in his competition schedule. Please contact us as early as possible in order to attempt to match your mare’s heat cycle with the stallion’s competition schedule. Frozen semen is also available for Clintord I. Only frozen semen is available from DURANGO LA SILLA. Please contact us regarding semen from SOLOMON’S PRIDE.
A completed, signed contract along with all monies due must be received by Cross Creek Farms prior to shipping of semen. Please make checks payable to Cross Creek Farms, Inc. and mail to the Postal Service address which can be found in the Information & Fees Schedule.

Preparation of Frozen Semen
Our reproductive veterinarian is Dr. Matt Matthews of Valley Center, CA. His preparation of frozen semen follows this protocol. An insemination dose is one macro tube containing 5 cc’s of fluid. The minimum motility is around 45% with a total live sperm count of at least eight hundred million. One macro tube is the equivalent to 10 half cc straws.
