HeZa' Bad Cat
Black Standardbred Stallion!
Produces 14.2-15.2 hand, amazingly smooth, fast gaited Single-Footing foals out of any breed of gaited mare!
Single-Footing Horses, like Bad Cat produces, can do comfortable gaits ranging from a slow non-gaited walk up to the speed of a running horse, and every speed in between, and through all kinds of terrain, and for extended periods of time, covering extreme distances. They are NOT just flat land, racing road horses, but in addition to being extremely smooth to ride, are some of the most agile, sure-footed, amazing athletes in the world, that make the greatest trail and mountain horses! Having trained hundreds of horses of numerous breeds over the last 35 years, I know of NO better blend of genetics than breeding Cat to any nice gaited mare! He will produce the most beautiful, smoothly gaited, well mannered, sweet natured, athletic & sure footed, trail, endurance, hunting, ranching horse you ever dreamed of riding!
We don't race our horses a lot, but they have great capacity for "Speed when you have a Need"...or just want to have fun! We have clocked Bad Cat numerous times (with 3 different gps units and 3 different automobile speedometers) going 30mph & have twice clocked him at 33 and 35mph! In most situations we ride at more relaxed speeds like 6-20mph, as riding them faster is the same as running a QH or TB horse full speed in a race. Doing that too much can be hard on their body and also wears them out fast, as well as causing them to be high minded, always wanting to go full speed. We love riding at a variety of speeds all over the deserts and mountains; it is so fun & addictive! Cat gaits smoothly at every speed from a 2mph slow walk to a 30+ mph single-foot, and any speed in between you tell him to! He has a great slow walk, flat foot walk, glass smooth foxtrot, comfy rack and his "To Die For" single-foot that can be done around 12-15mph for long distances or twice that fast for fun bursts of speed! He's like a sports car deluxe! Cat stands 14.2 hands & weighs 900lbs and is solid, like a tank, yet limber and flexible to really stretch out and move very nicely, with great endurance. Although small in size, he carries a 250 lb rider better than most 15.2 hand/1,200 lb horses can, and he sure doesn't feel small when you're in the saddle. My wife is much smaller than that, and is his primary rider but he sure is fun for me too! He is just plain awesome to ride! He's not been color tested, so we're not sure what colors he can produce. He can be crossed on any gaited or non-gaited mare to produce smooth, fast, fun gaited offspring. (When breeding to non-gaited mares it is always a gamble whether you'll get a good gait or not, but we've had many that are. Cat is a stunning animal to watch and a truly exhilarating and amazing horse to ride! He will produce foals that are very special, with great speed ability and range, super smoothness to their gaits and amazing endurance...as well as being very gentle natured. Cat is an amazing stallion who can be ridden by kids or adults and is just a joy to be around! Also, for those of you interested in bloodlines, his sire is by Tel-Star out of a Hanover mare and the dam is an Albatross X Virginia Undertaker mare... To see an example of what a great Standardbred Single-Footing cross on a Saddle Horse type mare, like a MFT, TWH, SSH, etc. can produce, see our Geldings page and watch the video of Comet, or on our Mares page watch videos of Lightning, Dreamin' and others.

You can purchase own your own supply of Cat's frozen semen, which can be stored for years and used whenever you are ready to breed your mare in the future! He will never produce more, as he was gelded in 2015, as he is my wife's favorite riding horse and even though he was gentle under saddle he was rough on trailers with other horses inside traveling to go on a ride. Right or wrong, we may have been to geld this super-human horse, he now has a limited supply of semen and no more opportunity to have his foals will be available when it is used up! We've saved what we plan to use in our breeding program and have a small supply to sell, to give others, like you, the chance to breed your mares to He'Za Bad Cat!

Breeding your mares to Bad Cat is only available with FROZEN SEMEN, by one of two methods:
1) You can purchase One Breeding Dose for $500. You can use the semen you've purchased to inseminate one or more mares. Each "Dose" contains 4 straws, each of which contain around 2 Billion Live Motile Sperm, so you could potentially get up to 4 mares pregnant with the one dose, although recommended AI Procedure is to use all four straws, which make "one dose". No matter if you use it all on one mare or split it for multiple mares, you could end up with all pregnant mares or one or all open mares. Then, if you want more doses, to re-breed you'd have to re-order and pay the full price for each additional dose you order. You need to understand that you are not paying a "Stud Fee" which generally come with guarantees, but rather are buying Frozen Semen to do with as you please, at your risk, with no guarantees. The responsibility falls solely upon you and your vet to produce live foals, and no conception, live foal, or other guarantees are given or implied with the purchase of semen at this price.
2) You can buy his Stud Fee with a live foal guarantee for $1,000. You pay $1,000 up front and we will ship your vet one dose of semen. This semen can be used ONLY on ONE mare per dose ordered. If she does not get pregnant, then you can re-order more semen, free of charge from us, up to 3 additional times, until you get that one mare (or a substitute mare) in foal.
Bad Cat's Frozen Semen Statistics from every breeding resulting in pregnancy currently stands at 62%. It is updated following EVERY mare bred EACH TIME, then having an ultrasound... If your mare has a healthy reproductive system you will have better odds than this percentage because it includes problem mares that have been bred several times in a row without success, and each time the overall % goes down. Clear as mud? Feel free to call and discuss these odds with me or with any other questions. Bad Cat's frozen semen has performed better than many stallions with live cover! In 2022 we had 72% of mares conceive on 1st insemination & so far in 2023 we've had 50% conception, with two trouble mares bringing the average down from over 90%.
