Peeper Ranch Expands Its Breeding Services

Kenda Benn, breeding manager for Peeper Ranch since the 2005 foaling season, has expanded the services offered. Kenda joined the Peeper team following an illustrious career with Callaway Hills Stable in Jefferson City, Missouri. She was with Callaway Hills for 17 years and handled countless mares, as well as maintained a large number of notable stallions. Among them are Callaway's Blue Norther, CH Caramac, Callaway's Gold Rush, CH Callaway's Born To Win, Callaway's Ghost Writer, Show Me Too and Callaway's The Gipper. Before Kenda went to Callaway Hills, she worked with Charlie Judd, who stood CH Courageous Admiral and CH Fleet Admiral's Commodore.

Peeper Ranch will stand stallions and collect and ship fresh cooled semen. Fresh cooled and frozen semen may be shipped to mares at Peeper Ranch. All aspects of the breeding process are available, from breeding, mare maintenance, foaling and foal care through weaning. Kenda works closely with Dr. Christopher Wilhite and Dr. Karl Frees, noted local equine veterinarians. When mare owners have elected to do embryo transfer, Peeper Ranch works with Dr. Robert Foss of Equine Medical Services in Columbia, Missouri, who is a specialist in equine reproduction.

Proper mare care is very important during the gestation period and post foaling, and Kenda is well trained and experienced in this area. Assistance with registration and DNA requirements is available to foal and mare owners when requested.
Peeper Ranch is owned and operated by Dawn and Brad Fire. Phil Fountain and Sandy Sessink are the trainers at Peeper Ranch.
Contact Kenda Benn for information about standing your stallion at Peeper Ranch by calling (913) 422-0550 ext. 229 or (816) 806-1400 (cell).
