BREEDING GUIDELINES
SO YOU WANT TO BREED TO ONE OF OUR STALLIONS
Here are some basic guidelines to help you through our breeding process:

STEP 1: Have your mare checked for breeding suitability. Mares arriving for live cover should have a current reproductive exam, testing negative to breeding transmitted diseases and infection. It is a good idea to know before the breeding season begins that the mare you plan to breed is a suitable prospect.

STEP 2: Read our Breeding Contract thoroughly. Once you have read through our contract and find the terms satisfactory, download our Booking Form and return with the booking fee. We require the completed Breeding Contract with the remaining portion of the service fee before the mare is bred.

STEP 3: Breed your mare.

LIVE COVER: We recommend that mares arriving for live cover be scanned prior to arrival for ovulation and cycle information. Most vets will be able to give you an idea about where your mare is at in her cycle which is helpful for us to know. Once the mare cycles and has been covered by the stallion, she can be taken home for pregnancy testing at 14-16 days from last date of service. Alternatively, we can keep the mare for the following 14-16 days to watch for her second cycle, and have her pregnancy tested for you. Please note that agistment and vet fees will apply.

ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION: You will obviously have enlisted the services of a vet well versed in equine artificial breeding to inseminate your mare, so have your vet contact our vet! Please note that semen collection and shipping costs will apply to the mare owner. We use Carmyle Veterinary Services and we recommend that you contact them for further advice and pricing. When semen has been ordered, they will contact us and we will endeavour to have the stallion collected and semen shipped when required.

STEP 4: Congratulations! Your mare should be safely in foal. At this point, we will provide you with registry information for your pending foal. Alernatively, you can decide to wait until the foal is born to save the risk of losing your paperwork in the coming year. Let us know what you prefer and we will be happy to assist in any way we can.
