DEAR MARE OWNERS, Rancho del Lago is happy to announce a new program for those breeding to our stallions. If you go with Rancho del Lago for your stud service, you'll pay a stud fee only after your mare is confirmed in foal. It's not too late to breed your mare. Our 3 National Champion stallions with nearly 200 show titles have produced over 160 foals, including many National Champions. There's no need to worry about owing a stud fee if your mare doesn't take. You'll pay only the breeding cost up front (for the disposable equipment involved). We ship anywhere or can do everything on site at the ranch.

Surveys show that the characteristic most valued in a breeding stallion by mare owners is good temperament. Well, take a look at about 2 dozen offspring of our guys.
