This breeding fee includes a live foal guarantee.  A live foal is defined as a foal that stands and nurses. Should the mare prove not to be in foal in the year bred or looses her foal, or should the foal not be able to stand and nurse, even after appropriate Veterinary care has been sought and provided, Mare Owner should notify the Stallion Owner within seventy-two (72) hours and provide a veterinarian’s statement confirming loss / death of foal within ten days.  If any of these situations named above happens, the Stallion Owner will give to the Mare Owner, a season to the stallion the following year to the same mare or a mare mutually agreed upon, at no service fee (mare care still extra).  If Mare Owner fails to provide the mare for rebreeding, then any and all fees paid shall be non-refundable, the right to rebreed is canceled, and the Stallion Owner is released from any further obligation whatsoever.
