    Ok, I never win anything, no scratch off tickets, no lotteries, no raffles, no auctions, nothing... browsing Facebook today and come across the Trey Hunt auction, I don't know him, but people have donated some really nice breeding and other items for bid to benefit him.

    I come across a High Brow Cat breeding auction, bid is 14,000, pass.... Come across his clone, Copy Cat, who I had a thread on earlier, also a breeding for auction. Highest bid so far is 1500, I thought there's no way it'll go that low, so I bid 1600....AND WIN IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now I gotta figure out what the heck I'm going to do!! Of course it'll be Chloe I'll breed to him, but I don't know if I can do embryo transfer again, lol, that was rather expensive and I don't have that set aside exclusively for breeding like I did last time. I guess I better save up!!

    Also, I kinda gotta tell my husband....:oops::willynilly::whistle::whistle::whistle:

    And this is why I avoid auctions! I'm terrible - give me a number and the next thing you know, I'm waving it. I've ended up with so many weird things because I got caught up in the whole auction thing and next thing I know, I have a 16-piece set of glassware that I have no idea what to do with. :rofl:

    Congrats! We'll all be waiting for pics of the outcome.

    It might be a lot more digestible to the significant other if you don't do embryo transfer. Spending 7 or 8 grand to save 2 grand , which nets spending 5 grand, usually doesn't sound good to significant others.

    Of course, the pregnancy and foaling involves spending money too. As does an additional horse. I'd probably sell the breeding for market price minus a little.

    Why the heck would she sell this breeding when she ABSOLUTELY has a proven mare to breed, has breeding experience, and has the means financially to see this breeding through from beginning to end?

    Don't sell this breeding, which I know you won't. The foal from this match up is going to be NICE!

    Re-read what I wrote. I said that I would sell it, not that she should.
