Working With the Stallion Manager - Helpful Hints for Success
First, establish a dialog with the stallion owner or manager before you return the breeding contract. You need to be certain you are aware of, and understand exactly the terms of the breeding. Below are some of the stallion season terms that vary from stallion to stallion - so go thru this check list! One Golden Rule that never changes (and perhaps the single most important factor to getting your mare in foal) is to plan ahead!
Terms that vary in every stallion season purchase
- Is the stallion available via cooled or frozen semen?
- What are the opening and closing dates of the stallion’s breeding season?
- Are there any dates during the breeding season that the stallion will be unavailable – shows, clinics, etc?
- Live Foal Guarantee
- How does the contract define a Live Foal?
- Is there a guarantee or not?
- If so, how long is the guarantee good for and what are the terms?
- Collection Fees
- Shipping Fee
- Shipping Container Fee/Shipping container deposit
- Collection days-What days of the week is the stallion collected on, and what type of advance notice do you need to give before the stallion is collected?
**Please take note here of time zones and how this may affect communication
- What is the preferred method of communication with the stallion owner, and for you as the mare owner?
- Will the breeding manager ship again if the mare does not get in foal? Is there a limit to the number of collections/shipments (or doses in the case of frozen semen) per season or in total for the contract?
- Must the breeding be used in the current breeding season?
Please do not take any of these terms for granted, check on all of them so you are clear.
The owners of these stallions have generously donated breedings to support the American Hanoverian Society. Their support, year after year, helps to fund AHS operations and to promote Hanoverians in the USA.
