A Booking fee of $350.00 is payable when this contract is
signed and returned. This fee is applied to the total breeding fee but
is not refundable except under Condition No. 8. The balance of the fee
plus all other charges will be due and payable when your mare is picked
The mare shall be in a healthy and sound breeding condition and
a veterinarian certificate shall accompany all dry mares. Failure to
furnish this certificate will be authorization to have the mare
examined by a veterinarian at the mare owner’s expense. The mare
owner hereby gives permission to have the mare treated by a licensed
veterinarian and have normal veterinarian services performed for
anything which might insure the mare’s well being, including as many
pregnancy examinations as deemed necessary by the veterinarian.
The veterinarian agrees to diligently try to settle the mare.
If, however, she does not settle, the stallion owner nor the attending
veterinarian will be held responsible.
If for any reason the mare is unable to be settled in a
reasonable period of time another mare may be substituted.
I understand that no one associated with Percott Company or the
attending veterinarian will be held responsible for accident,
sickness, or death to mare and/or foal. I agree to accept full
responsibility for any veterinary expense incurred by my mare and
foal. I also understand that my mare will be bred by any method which
is believed best by the attending veterinarian. A foaling fee of
$300.00 will be charged for foaling out mares. Expenses will be billed
at the end of the month and are due upon receipt of statement. Such
charges shall be paid whether or not the mare is settled. Veterinarian
charges will be billed directly to mare owner.
It is agreed that a live foal is guaranteed from this mating.
Should the foal not stand and nurse, I shall be entitled to return
privileges. This will apply only if the stallion owner is notified
within one week from the foaling date. This notice must be accompanied
by a veterinarian’s statement. Under the foregoing circumstances and
upon receipt of the specified notice and the original stallion service
certificate, it is agreed:
Stallion owner shall give to mare owner a free season to the
stallion the following year only and to the same mare originally
booked (unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing between mare owner
and stallion owner).
If mare owner fails to deliver the mare (or a substitute mare
if mutually agreed as stated above) for rebreeding the following year,
then any and all fees paid shall not be refundable; the right to
rebreed is thereby canceled and stallion owner is released from any
further obligation whatsoever.
The Stallion Service Certificate will be issued only if the
foal stands and nurses and same is reported to the stallion owner.
It is further agreed that should the above names stallion die
or become unfit for service the fee will be returned if requested by
mare owner. If the mare dies or becomes unfit to breed then another
mare may be substituted if approved by the stallion owner.
All mares must have a negative coggins test within the last six
months and must be vaccinated against Equine Viral Abortion (Rhinopneumonitis).
Mare care is: wet $15.00 per day; dry $14.00; and outside lot
is $12.50 per day.
A vet package is available at $250.00. It must be paid at time
of booking by separate check to Strathman Veterinary Service.
All breeding and board fees must be paid when mare departs; 24
hours notice prior to pickup of mare is requested.
