Masterson Farms, LLC., Announces Plan for RL Best of Sudden 2016 Breeding Season
Masterson Farms, LLC, the home of RL Best Of Sudden, today announced that it will limit the number of outside mares bred during the 2016 season to 40. The breeding fee will be $5,000.
Ken Masterson discussed the reasons for limiting the book and noted “RL Best Of Sudden will be 14 years of age this next season. Thanks to the customers who have believed so strongly in his offspring, he has had remarkable success as a sire of not only western pleasure horses, but as well World Champions in everything from western riding to trail and performance halter”.
“Early in his career, RL Best Of Sudden sustained an injury to his stifle which does not currently limit his ability as a sire. However, if we continue to breed him to the current high number of mares, that injury will worsen and could eventually affect him as a sire. We want to do everything we can to protect him and his breeding career, and think substantially reducing his book of mares at this point is an important step in that direction.”
