Breeding Information and Contract
All stallion service fees include a booking fee of $150 for that year’s service, regardless of breeding fee. Live foal guaranteed; however, a new booking fee must be paid before the next year’s breeding is performed. This nominal fee is required to reimburse cost of supplies, handling, and paper work.
Shipped semen requires a fee of $125 per shipment due to costs of handling, extra facility, materials and paper work. A disposable shipping container is used for overnight shipping at a container cost of $35. If the Hamilton 48-hour container is needed, a deposit of $250 is required. Upon receipt of the undamaged container within 72 hours, a refund will be issued, minus a $35 rental fee and any other outstanding charges. A $10 per day rental is charged after 72 hours. There will be a $10 delivery fee to the airport or to Fedex. We make every effort to ship Monday through Saturday.
We are very lenient on a live foal guarantee. If your foal dies, call us and we’ll discuss what options you have for a gratis breedback. Our goal is to produce babies and we want happy repeat customers.
