Creating options for minority breeds

Welcome to SPUNK! Pony Semen Imports Ltd. Spunk was formed by a group New Zealand Connemara Pony breeders in an attempt to extend the number of breeding options for Connemara mare owners. In the process of forming the company, we became aware of the fact that there are a number of other minority breeds in New Zealand who are also severely limited in their breeding choices.

It is our intention to, over time, import limited amounts of semen from a variety of Connemara stallions. Though this is a more expensive approach than importing larger amounts of semen from a single stallion, we hope that it will broaden the choices available to all breeders, both now and into the future. It also means that there will be a number of imports from various places, hopefully allowing others to 'piggyback' on shipments.

The Connemara pony stallions which Spunk has chosen to import semen from have been selected for the genetic diversity which they will introduce to the New Zealand Connemara pony population as a whole. We hope that in offering differing bloodlines and a choice of ponies we will provide a little 'something for everyone'.

Different terms and conditions are negotiated with the owners of each stallion - there is no 'one size fits all' agreement. Usually, any semen available will be being held with Spunk acting as an agent for the stallion owner. Occasionally, we may take pre-orders for semen we are expecting.
