A. It is recommended that the breeding be done at a Qualified Breeding Facility or under strict supervision of a Veterinarian familiar with equine reproduction and shipped semen:

    1. GLF must be notified the day the mare comes into heat. Some mares take longer than others to reach ovulation – please keep GLF informed of her progress - DAILY.
    2. GLF must receive request for semen by 8 a.m. Pacific Standard Time the day of shipment.
    3. GLF agrees to ship 2 doses of semen.  The sperm count, motility, collection, and packaging process meets or exceeds the industry standards.

4. COUNTER-TO-COUNTER:  Semen may possibly be shipped to your nearest major airport. Please call ahead for pricing.

5. PREGNANCY CHECK:  MARE OWNER agrees to have the MARE examined by an early ultrasound scan between 14 and 18 days from the last day inseminated and notify GLF of her pregnancy status. It is suggested that MARE be pregnancy checked again at 45 days.

6. LIVE FOAL GUARANTEE: If the MARE does not settle or produce a "live foal" (one that stands and nurses or is hand fed for a period of 72 hours), GLF agrees to rebreed the same MARE or an approved substitute the following year on the terms and conditions provided in this contract without payment of any further breeding fee (collection and shipping fees must be paid by mare owner). Mare must be vaccinated for Rhinopneumonitis at 5th, 7th, and 9th month of gestation. Failure to do so may result in the loss of said pregnancy and voids all live foal guarantees. It is agreed that this provision will be of no further effect if the MARE is taken to any other stallion before returning to the above-named STALLION. The live-foal guarantee is valid, ONLY IF MARE OWNER has properly maintained the health of the MARE, and verifies the MARE’S pregnancy loss, stillbirth, or newborn foal’s death by providing GLF with an original, signed and dated veterinary certificate, on the veterinarian’s own practice stationary.

7. REGISTRATION OF FOAL: GLF agrees to execute all necessary documents for the registration of the foal resulting from the breeding. GLF will not be responsible for registration or DNA testing fees for the foal.

8. TERMINATION: Either party may terminate this Contract for failure of other party to meet any terms of this contract. In the case of any default by one party, the wronged party shall have the right to recover reasonable attorney’s fees and court costs as a result of said default. If the STALLION should die, become unfit for service, be sold, or leased, MARE OWNER will be able to select another STALLION currently standing and owned/leased/managed by GLF.  If MARE dies or becomes unfit to breed before producing a live foal, then MARE OWNER may substitute another MARE approved by GLF.

9. CONTRACT IN FORCE: A photo copy of MARE’S registration papers (both sides), must be returned with this contract. When Connie Noble signs, dates, and returns a copy of this contract to MARE OWNER, it will become the binding contract of both parties. This contract is not transferable or assignable by either party hereto without the expressed written consent of the other. In the event the MARE is sold or otherwise disposed of prior to the birth of the foal, the "Live Foal Guarantee" will no longer be valid unless specific written consent or assignment is given to MARE OWNER prior to transfer of ownership.

I certify that I am sole owner of the MARE and/or have authority to enter into this contract on behalf of the owner(s).
