Live Foal Guarantee

This contract contains a “live foal” guarantee: defined as a newborn foal that stands and suckles without assistance. If the mare does not produce a live foal, the mare owner will receive a return breeding privilege for the following season provided the mare owner notifies the breeder within 15 days of loss and sends confirmation of death signed by a licensed veterinarian. Collection and shipping fees will apply.

Mare Owner

The mare should be healthy and in sound breeding condition. A veterinarian health certificate and uterine culture are highly recommended prior to the shipping of semen. If the mare fails to settle in foal after two cycles, the farm may require the mare owner to obtain a current reproductive exam/uterine culture prior to further shipments.

The mare owner is responsible for obtaining a pregnancy confirmation exam at 30-45 days and forwarding the results to the farm.

The mare owner shall assume all responsibilities for the condition of the mare and shall bear risk of loss or damage to the mare, including but not limited to death, injury, and infection or by any cause whatsoever, including inappropriate or negligent insemination or failure of insemination. The mare owner holds harmless the farm, its owners, employees and agents from any liability for any and all damages.
