The coronavirus is flourishing and is holding the whole world in its grip. Many activities and events have been stopped, but fortunately the breeders can continue to do their thing for the time being. The breeding season at Stal de Muze can therefore equally kick off. Of course we take the prevailing pandemic seriously and so we do everything we can to protect our own health and that of others.
On the other hand we find it very important to stay at the service of our breeders. Both KI and embryo transfer can hence occur without any problems. All our stallions are in principle available with fresh semen, in line with what is indicated in our breeding conditions, with the exception of the stallions stationed in France. So if you want to use Malito de Rêve, Satisfaction, Querlybet Hero, By Cera d'Ick and/or Old Chap Tame, you can always contact us and we will see what is possible to obtain fresh semen in time.
Also the breeders who like to visit Stal de Muze remain welcome. Please take a few practical things into account when visiting us:
- We only accept one customer at a time in our examination room. We ask the other breeders to quietly wait outside and of course to observe the guidelines regarding social distancing;
- We hope that our breeders follow the general guidelines of the government, i.e. regularly wash their hands, use paper handkerchiefs and throw them away immediately after use in a lockable garbage bag, sneeze or cough in the inside of the elbow and of course we also ask you to stay at home if you are sick;
- We also rely on the common sense of our breeders to keep the spread of the virus to a minimum.
That being said, we will of course take care of the required documentation regarding the necessity of the movement, when you go on the road to visit us with your mare and/or collect sperm.
In order to reduce the risk as much as possible, you can of course also opt the fresh sperm to be sent to you. The courier service HippoXpress remains available, so sending sperm can be a recommended alternative to avoid long journeys and extra contacts.
Despite the exceptional circumstances we hope for a successful breeding season!
Always at your service,
Family De Brabander - Team Stal de Muze
