2014 breeding season on it's way!
We have re-located our breeding services to Millwood Farm, Millwood, VA. It is expected to be a busy season. Call or email for directions.
ET flushes can start as early as the mares start cycling. Feel free to phone if you have questions about your mare’s season ahead.
Stallions may come and stay with us as the need arises. The stalls are large and there is light turn out available, depending upon your stallion's temperament. A jumping chute is planned for summer 2014.
Foaling services are by special arrangement in 2014, so contact us early to discuss your mare and reserve a stall!
Dr. Ley's commitment to you and the environment!
We have all had to adjust to the changing times. Dr. Ley more than ever is dedicated to you, the client. He understands your need for an efficient and practical approach. He understands dedication to 24/7 availability when you are breeding horses. Mares are on their own schedule and he adjusts to their needs. Semen collections are always checked for quality that best represents the individual stallion. Vaccination and wellness programs are customized to a farm's activities. These may be hard times, but these are times to strive towards a prosperous future.
Please contact Dr. Ley with your e-mail address. Paper invoices are a waste of our resources! Invoices are sent electronically upon conclusion of your appointment and paid by cash, check or credit card. Credit is not available.
