  9. It is further agreed that should the stallion die, be sold by the owner, or become unfit for service prior to settling the mare, that the service fee will be refunded less the booking fee, thereby canceling this entire contract; or, if mare dies or becomes unfit to breed before being pronounced safe in foal, the Breeder has the option to either (a) accept another mare as replacement or (b) refund whatever fee has been paid, less booking fee and all other expenses; thereby canceling this contract.

Live Foal Guarantee Checklist

In order for the Live Foal Guarantee to be valid, the following checklist is provided as a guide

  1. Mare must be checked by a licensed veterinarian (ultrasound, palpation) and pronounced "safe in foal" within 45 days.
  2. A copy of the veterinarian's report must be supplied to the breeder, which states that the mare is "safe in foal". Failure to provide a copy of this report to the Breeder voids your Live Foal Guarantee.
  3. Mare Owner is required to provide booster rhinopneumonitis vaccinations throughout the course of the pregnancy as the drug manufacturer indicates. Failure to provide such vaccinations voids your live foal guarantee.
  4. Mare Owner is required to provide sufficient nutritious and wholesome feed as the mare needs to maintain good physical health. This should include a supplemental product during the last trimester designed to meet your mare's increasing nutritional demands.
  5. It is strongly suggested that the Mare Owner provide adequate and safe foaling accommodations. Failure to provide safe and sanitary conditions for foaling will void your live foal guarantee (i.e., mare foals on snow, mud, etc.)
  6. Mare Owner is required to have a licensed veterinarian examine the foal within 24 hours of birth.
