                    If there is sufficient semen to fill all orders of a given day, the farm veterinarian will determine which orders
                     will be honored. This decision will be based on the information provided by the purchaser’s veterinarian.
                    Rosewood Ranch requires that you notify the breeding manager when the mare first shows signs of heat.
