Curious about this....

>>You run a high risk of losing your male at that age in my opinion.

Just curious as to what would cause them to die? I would think they just wouldn't show any interest. Is it because they try to breed and basically breed themselves to death (using lots of energy and not eatting)?

I also like to let mine mature a bit before breeding, the youngest male I've bred so far was 3 years and I usually wait for my females to be at least 5-6 yrs old. However, I do have a young male that I'd like to try for this next season but don't want to risk it if there's a chance he may pass away due to the breeding.
Thanks!
