STALLION SERVICE CONTRACT
I, hereby confirm my reservation to the stallion Apache*Pb*
for the 2011 season to breed the mare named . Stud fee for
breeding above named mare to this stallion is $ n/a ATA Stallion Service Auction .
The stud fee for breeding must be paid to the American Trakehner Association, Inc. in full for the mare
being bred via Transported Semen or Live Cover before first shipment or cover is made. Fees for
collection, shipping, and the container deposit are payable to Joint Venture Farm (see below). In the
event of the inability to produce viable fresh semen from the stallion contracted for this service, Joint
Venture Farm will substitute frozen semen.
A uterine culture is required if you have: A maiden mare, an older mare that was bred before, a mare
that had a difficult birth/retained placenta, aborted last pregnancy or if you have any other reasons to be
suspicious of her uterine health. I expect you to follow your veterinarian’s recommendation. This
current negative tract culture must be provided to Joint Venture Farm before any shipment of semen.
The mare owner agrees that a licensed veterinarian shall inseminate the mare with the semen, no more
than 12 hours after its arrival at the destination, and in the event this is not done, Joint Venture Farm
shall deem to have fulfilled their contract obligations under this contract and all guarantees shall be null
I understand that my mare must be examined by a licensed veterinarian between 40 and 50 days after
the last day bred and Joint Venture Farm notified of her pregnancy status at the time or all live foal
guarantees are null and void. The mare must be vaccinated at 5, 7, and 9 months with an anti-abortion
rhino vaccine, or all guarantees are null and void. Joint Venture Farm has the right to require that a
licensed veterinarian attests in writing to the times and circumstances of insemination and /or to the
lack of viability of the foal as a condition to honoring the return breeding privileges. A breeding
certificate will be issued after the conclusion of this breeding season.
This contract only guarantees return privileges, if necessary, for the same mare during the
course of Joint Venture breeding season in 2011(and 2012, if necessary). A second mare may
be substituted with permission of stallion owner. This contract is not transferable without
written permission of stallion owner. Should the mare not produce a live foal that stands and
sucks in 2011, the mare owner shall be entitled to above mentioned return privileges. This
guarantee shall only apply if the stallion owner is notified within one week of the foal’s death.
A statement of details by a licensed veterinarian must follow within 10 days or the guarantee
becomes null and void. This clause is also binding in case of abortion. If a mare reabsorbs
her pregnancy, Joint Venture needs written verification of this fact from a veterinarian.
I understand that the mare owner shall assume all responsibility for the condition of the mare
and bear all risk of loss or damage to the mare whether by death, disease, injury, infection or
otherwise, and by any cause whatsoever, and therefore agrees to hold the stallion owner,
keeper or agent harmless for any and all damages associated therewith. Any disputes of a
legal matter must be settled in Madison, Madison County, Florida.
