Should mare fail to settle within two cycles, mare owner should provide evidence of a clean culture, at mare owner’s expense, by a certified veterinarian before Stallion Owner attempts to breed the mare again.

Mare Owner hereby agrees that Stallion Owner reserves the right to refuse service to any mare which appears to be diseased, unruly, dangerous, or which is unfit for breeding in the opinion of the Stallion Owner (example: overbite, poor conformation, venereal disease, aggressive toward handler or stallion, etc.). Stallion owner does require a current negative Coggins test, as well as a clean culture on all mares except those with foals under 30 days of age.
It is agreed by the parties hereto that if the aforestated stallion should die, be sold or become unfit for breeding before serving aforestated mare, or if aforestated mare should die, be sold or become unfit for breeding before served, this agreement is and shall be null and void with the exception of boarding fees, which still apply. A new agreement for a different stallion is an option, as is refund of the stud fee.
