The undersigned, hereinafter known as mare owner, does hereby agree to breed:
Name of mare: ___________________________________, Breed Registry_______________ Registration # _______________, Date of birth: ________________
Name of Owner as recorded with Breed Registry ____________________________________
Resulting Foals of Registered or Grade Mares of any Breed, can be Registered with Friesian Heritage Horse and Sporthorse International
Breeding Fee options: Please put an X next to your chosen option
________ Option 1- Mare Owner agrees to pay a Stud Fee of $800.00, to breed with a live foal guarantee. The live foal guarantee would be fulfilled if the foal has stood and nursed successfully after the birth. In the event the mare aborts prior to birth, the mare owner can bring the mare back on her next heat cycle until she is checked in foal. The Mare owner must agree to take all the precautions needed to prevent birthing problems due to Fescue. If the foal dies due to problems related to fescue, the contract will be considered void and there will be no refund of any part of the Stud Fee. In the case of still born or birthing problems, the Mare owner must have a Vet exam and signed Vet explanation of cause of death.
________ Option 2- Mare Owner agrees to pay a Stud Fee of $400.00 with a 30 day pregnancy guarantee. The Mare owner should have a pregnancy check done to confirm pregnancy at or before 30 days. Failure to have a Vet check done at this time to confirm pregnancy will be assumed that the Mare is pregnant and the contract is fulfilled and so ends the obligation of the sire’s owner. You can choose to breed back again under a new contract using either of the above options and Stud Fees.
Stud Fee is due when the Mare arrives on the farm for breeding, or prior to shipping semen, or upon pick up of semen.
AI at our Farm– Mare owner will give notice at least 24 hours prior to first breeding. Mare care while Mare is on our farm for breeding is $10.00/day which is payable on departure. Any mare brought to the premises must have proof of negative Coggins, and must be healthy and up to date on vaccinations. Mare must be halter broke and safe for handling and breeding. Rear shoes must be removed prior to arrival at farm. Any mare deemed unsafe for personnel or stallion will be rejected from live cover or AI. We charge a $75.00 Chute Fee to cover the insemination. This charge will be repeated on rebreeds as well, so please have your mare checked for infection and breeding soundness prior to bringing her in. Chute Fee and Mare care will be payable when you pick your Mare up.
Shipped Cooled Semen– Contract and Stud Fee should be paid in advance. Mail to: Karen Weaver, 889 Bennett Rd, Buffalo, KY 42716 (Money Order or Bank Check) Semen is shipped by Fedex overnight. Shipping and collection fees to a USA address is $250.00.with an additional $25.00 charge for Saturday delivery. You can include this with your mailed payment, or pay the Shipping and collection fees by Paypal when the semen is ordered. Keep in touch with us when you are preparing your Mare for breeding with a rough estimate of possible breeding date then call us when you have a definite breeding date. We need to be called at least the day before the ship date. For example…Your Mare will be ready to AI on Friday, so we will need to collect and ship on Thursday morning, so you need to order your semen by Wednesday. We will need a ship to address and phone number when ordering semen.
Pick up of Cooled Semen– This may be a good option for you if you are within a 3 or 4 hour drive of our Stallion Station. This is also an ideal option if you are breeding on foal heat! This will allow you to use your own Vet to AI from home, without having to transport your mare and foal or pay Mare care or chute fees. There are no collection or additional fees on your first Pick up if you bring a cooler with ice (or we can supply a cooled shipping box for $20.00. We recommend this option as the ship boxes are set up to keep the semen at the proper temperature) For Re-breed pick ups, there will be a $75.00 collection fee. You will need to order your Semen as above in the shipped semen paragraph. Semen can be picked up after noon on the day before or the day of Breeding.
We reserve the right to restrain mare humanely as necessary for the safety of mare,
Stallion, and handlers. Karen Weaver will not be liable for any disease, accident, or injury to mare;
and Mare owner will not be liable for any disease, accident, or injury to stallion or
Personnel at farm.
If the above named stallion dies or becomes unfit for service, this contract is null and
Void, and you may have the option to breed to another available Stallion .
This contract is not transferable in the event of sale or death of the mare.
I have read, understand, and agree to all the terms of this contract as outlined above.
