Whether it is used for assisting with mating plans, sales research or keeping up-to-date with the industry, this is the Book you need.

Return of Mares

You should not confirm any mating plans or sales research without reading the Return Of Mares. Hence why, each year, it is a necessity for breeders & bloodstock enthusiasts.

Published in October, the Return Of Mares is an in-depth analysis of the returns and current season coverings for each mare registered in the UK & Ireland that year. It also holds vital statistics on the breakdown of foal and broodmare numbers.

The publication comes into it’s own when providing the ability to gauge the quality and quantity of each book of mares a stallion has covered. Therefore, giving you the best opportunity to choose a sire to breed to or buy their stock with the best chance of success.
When purchasing a Return Of Mares you will also receive a smaller supplement to the publication with any later registrations, free of charge. This ensures you have all the information needed when making those important decisions.
The Return Of Mares publications are available on the Weatherbys Shop for £69 -
