What is the most reliable way to know if an aged stallion is fertile?

Tom Asks:

What is the best way to tell if a Stallion is still fertile? I have a 27 1/2 year old Stallion. Or, can you point me to someone that can tell me thank you....Tom


Our Trainer Answers:

The most reliable way to know if any stallion is fertile is to have him checked by a vet. They will collect semen from the horse and do a sperm count. With age a stallions count will decrease and possibly make it more difficult for him to breed, even if he is not sterile.

Thank You and Happy Trails!
