Breeding Contract 2011 - Scolinda Macka Dreams
Please attach a copy of the mare’s registration papers with this contract. Do not forward originals.
Please note that all mares must be halter broken, good to handle, up to date with tetanus and strangles vaccinations, been wormed within
6 weeks of arrival at Oakwood Park, and must have all shoes removed and hooves trimmed neatly.
Worming and vaccination will occur at owner’s/lessee’s cost if status is not current or is unknown. Farriery fees will be charged to the
owner/lessee if shoes are not removed and/or hooves are not trimmed appropriately.
Please note that mares that are hard to manage, are dangerous or are deemed unfit for breeding purposes may be rejected by the stallion
owners at any time without veterinary advice.
The stud fee agreed is $850, with a deductable and non-refundable booking and handling fee of $250. The Booking and Handling fee of
$250 is required at the signing and dating of this contract. The overall fee of $850 does not include agistment, feeding, farriery or
Booking and Handling fee received ___ / ___ /______
The remaining stud fee of $600, plus any additional charges (such as farriery, worming, vet etc.), is due to be paid in full when the mare
leaves Oakwood Park.
In addition to the $600 and other charges, the mare owner/lessee agrees to pay the following:
☐ $60pw for dry mares, paddocked alone
☐ $70pw for mares with foal at foot, paddocked alone
☐ $50pw for dry mares in a shared paddock
☐ $55pw for mares with a foal at foot in a shared paddock
Please note agistment fees are for the horse being kept at Oakwood Park only, and do not include any feeding other than pasture.
2. Feeding and rugging
If hay and/or hard feeds are to be fed to the mare, hay and/or hard feeds must be supplied by the owner/lessee of the mare.
For every occasion the mare is to be fed, the owner/lessee will be charged $3.50 if given more then 24 hours notice or $5 without 24
The same charges apply for rugging, should it be required. In most instances, to facilitate easy breeding, it is expected the mare will
be unrugged. If required, rugs are to be supplied by the owner/lessee and must be easily accessible.
Please note that feeding/rugging in the morning, and again at night will be charged as two (2) occasions.
3. Vet fees and charges
The stallion’s owners agree to use due care and caution with the mare/and foal while she/they are at Oakwood Park.
However, if needed a qualified veterinarian will be called to look after the mare and/or foal at the mare owner/lessee’s cost. If this
situation arises, the mare owner/lessee will be notified via phone ASAP.
The mare owner/lessee also gives the stallion owner/s authority to administer drugs under veterinary directions while the mare/and
foal are at the stud.
The fees for the LFG return remain the same, but exclude the $600 stud fee. Booking and handling, agistment, feeding and veterinary
charges will be charged again.

up to date, or are unknown, or are still shod then they will be vaccinated/have the shoes removed at the mare owner/lessee’s cost.
7. A copy of the mare’s registration papers, where applicable, is to be provided with this contract. I will not hand over the original papers.

birth, or is humanely destroyed after assessment by a qualified vet for reasons of illness, birth defects or disorders within 5 days of birth.
*Free return meaning the $600 stud fee does not need to be paid for the return. Booking and agistment fees will still be charged on the

The mare owner/lessee must contact the stallion owner about the current situation within 48 hours of birth and provide veterinary
report/statement, even if the foal’s life has not yet been terminated.

If the mare is deemed unfit to breed or infertile, then a substitute mare may come in her place.

injury, which may result in death.
