After making a good show of his soccer career with numerous laurels to show for his efforts, German international Thomas Muller and his wife Lisa have ventured into horse sperm business.
In fact they are tipped to soon become ‘horse sperm millionaires’, according to German newspaper Bild. The Mullers are selling horse sperm online and are reportedly progressing in that regard.
The World Cup and Champions League winner Muller is the self-titled ‘director of carrots’ at his wife Lisa’s stables. She is a champion dressage rider so knows a thing or two about all things equine.
Now their breeding farm has been named ‘EU Insemination Station’ for 2021.
This means breeders can order semen from their stallions, including Muller’s favourite D’Avie (or Dave as it’s also known as).
Two ‘installments’ that include insemination and pregnancy, and a processing fee will cost in excess of £1,700.
On the couple’s official website, they write: “Up until now, the training of competition horses and the breeding of first-class dressage horses have dominated daily events at our stud.
“Now a new and very exciting chapter begins for us as the new “EU insemination station” in the 2021 breeding season.
“Together with you and our stallions, we would like to contribute to a positive influence on dressage breeding in the future.”We are looking forward to it!”
Bayern Munich midfielder Muller, 31, also shared the good news on his Instagram account.
He wrote: “Lisa and I have taken the next step in our ‘horse life’.
“Gut Wettlkam is looking forward to the 2021 breeding season with our stallions.”
Speaking about D’Avie, Muller said: “Discovered as a future hope for top dressage sport, since his arrival at our farm D’avie has not only put a smile on my wife Lisa every day.
“As a dressage enthusiast, horse lover and long-time breeder, you usually still find a fly in the ointment even with a double world champion.
There are millions to be made from stud breeding – Irish racehorse Galileo reportedly earns £515,000 per breeding according to Thoroughbredracing.com.And the legendary Frankel rakes in £165,000 when mating.
