BR I AM is happy to announce a breeding special from March 1st until the end of April of $750. This will include the stud fee and first collection (shipping fees apply).
"I am really trying to get some western mares for 2013, so I am offering a $500 dollar breeding to western bred mares (includes stud fee and first collection, shipping applies)," says, Julie Majernik, owner of BR I AM. "World and Congress placers can breed for collection and shipping fees. I am passionate about BR as an individual and as a sire. He has so much to offer and my main goal is to get more babies on the ground."
Majernik adds, "As BR's show career was cut short due to his injury, I think he missed a lot of opportunites in the western arena. He has such a great jog and slow legged natural lope, it upsets me that he didn't get to show off his talents in the western events. To date, BR hasn't bred any western mares, but I feel you never know until you try, so I'm really hoping some mare owners will give the cross a try."
Majernik bought the nine year-old stallion from Shane and Chad Christensen. BR has had other huge supporters such as Nancy Sue Ryan and former owner, Kevin McGrath and trainer Rick Skelly who broke him out for breeder Bill Rosenfeldt. Paige Quarterman showed him at the Congress to a Top Five place finish in the Limited Hunter Under Futurity and Top Ten in the Open. Julie says that every rider that has shown him remarked on how easy and fun he was to show.
"He acts like a 20 year old gelding; you would never have any idea he is a stud. He is kind, quiet, sweet and very smart. He has this humble yet confident personality," Julie remarks. "I love his legs--he moves big and flat and is just so pretty to watch. I think he needs some western girlfriends," Julie says and laughs.
"BR only has a handful of foals on the ground," Julie says. "The two and three years-olds I have seen, I'm thrilled with. He has some hitting the ground in 2013 as well."
Majernik's plans are to continue breeding and stand him. "He has not been advertised much in the past, and I am working on changing that," Julie states. "He is such an amazing horse, and I want him to be given the chance he deserves. He has so much to offer, and, so far, I am more than pleased as to what I am seeing and hearing about his babies. I think BR is going to make a huge impact in the industry over the next few years, and, hopefully many more to come."
BR I AM will be at Meander Creek Farms in North Jackson, Ohio during the breeding season and Julie's farm, Southern Creek Farms in Canfield, Ohio on the off season. For the rest of the year, BR's stud fee will be $1000.00 and will include the first collection and shipment. As well as offering a breeding discount to owners of western mares and also multiple mares booked by the same owner.
"I am really looking forward to speaking to mare owners to help them decide if BR is a good fit," Julie says. "I also welcome anyone to come see him in person."
Majernik is also excited about BR's upcoming offspring that will be showing in 2013! Here are just a few offspring that will be showing this year.
