Please note that the shipping expense is a recurring expense.  If more than one shipment is required, the veterinary collection charge of $170 and the Fed Ex, Airline and mileage must be paid again before the next shipment is made.  Mares that are brought to the property for live cover may have to be artificially inseminated if we have to ship semen on that stallion on the day the mare is scheduled to be bred naturally.  In that case, mare owner may be charged for veterinary fees for insemination of the mare.

This Breeding Agreement is subject to the following conditions:

Payment of Fees: Stud Fee, mare care and any other expenses (shoeing, vet, etc.) to be paid in full when mare is picked up from Walkers West.  (Make check payable to Mary Ellen Areaux.)  Stud fees paid and not used are not refundable and may not be applied to other expenses.  (Foal registration papers and breeding certificates will not be furnished until the mare owner’s account is in good standing.)
Shipping: It is the mare owner’s responsibility to call in advance of the planned breeding date to check the collection and shipping schedule at Walkers West.  Normal collection days are every other day, Monday through Friday.  Your request for semen needs to be telephoned the day before to assure next day shipment.

The Shipping container (Equitainer) will be furnished by Walkers West.  All shipping charges, veterinary charges and stud fee will be paid by the mare owner and must be paid prior to the shipment of semen.  The mare owner agrees to return the Equitainer to Walkers West no later than two days after receipt of semen by Next Day Delivery. If the Equitainer is not returned promptly, there will be no further shipment of semen to that mare owner.  Failure to return the Equitainer within 10 days will result in a $100 penalty plus the cost of replacing the container (approximately $400.)

Each shipment will contain ONE or TWO insemination doses at the discretion of the stallion manager. 

Walkers West only assumes responsibility to ship semen in a viable condition at the time of delivery to the mare owner’s farm or other designated location.  Walkers West assumes no responsibility for the loss of semen viability or associated expenses due to any delay in shipment, delay in airline schedules, or delay in courier services beyond our control.  The semen must be administered by a licensed veterinarian or an authorized technician on the day of delivery or all live foal guarantees and return privileges shall be null and void.

Live Foal Guarantee:  Should the mare fail to produce a foal which stands and nurses, the mare owner shall be entitled to rebreed the mare or a substitute mare for a period of one year from the date of this agreement or the date of the loss of the foal.  There will be no additional breeding fee for a rebreed, but all other veterinary fees, board fees and transported semen fees shall apply.  Failure to notify Walkers West in a timely manner shall result in the loss of the live foal guarantee and return privileges.  This clause is also binding in the case of an abortion.  The mare owner fully understands, authorizes, and assumes the special risk inherent in breeding with the use of transported semen or live cover of the mare.  Mare Owner also understands the risk of failure due to many variables and shall hold Walkers West and the stallion owner harmless for any losses suffered due to an unsuccessful attempt at conception. Mary Ellen Areaux or any other person associated with Walkers West shall not be liable for the death, sickness and/or accident, including consequential damages caused to the mare and/or foal, and mare owner agrees to hold Mary Ellen Areaux or any other person associated with Walkers West, harmless for any and all damages associated herewith. Should the stallion to which you are breeding become unfit for service or be sold prior to your mare’s conception, but after payment of the breeding fee, the breeding fee may be applied to another Walkers West stallion.  Mare owner, stallion owner, Walkers West and all associates therewith shall  be released from this agreement, thereby making it null and void.  Stud fees are not refundable. 
This agreement constitutes and represents the entire agreement between the parties.  Mare Owner acknowledges and agrees that no warranties or guarantees of any kind or character, expressed or implied, (other than the Live Foal Guarantee policy as set forth above), have been made or extended by Walkers West, Mary Ellen Areaux or anyone associated with them, including stallion owners, regarding either the services rendered or to be rendered or the breeding of the mare or this breeding agreement.
