                                                                 (name of mare owner)
 
Owner, has engaged one service to the stallion ___________________________________  for the
                                                                                                                  (name of stallion semen is to be collected from)

mare _____________________________________________, Reg. No. ____________________ 
                                (name of mare to be receiving semen)

for the 2017 breeding season at $____________ live foal / live, colored foal / Triple foal guarantee.  
                                                                                                                         (circle one for the appropriate stallion)

Odyssey Ranch, owner/agent for the above named stallion, will herein be referred to as Breeder.

This service is subject to the following:
  1.  This contract is good for one foal.  Multiple foals from the same mare in the same breeding season
       (embryo transfer) will require a separate contract and breeding fee for each resulting foal.  The only
       exception to this would be twins that are carried throughout term and foaled by one mare.
  2.   A non-refundable booking fee of $150 of the above breeding fee is payable with this contract.  The
        balance plus all unpaid expenses, fees and costs must be paid before any semen will be shipped,
        unless other arrangements have been made and agreed upon between Mare Owner and Breeder.
        Payment of shipping and courier fees may be subject to change without notice.
    The current shipping fee of $260.00 includes the following services:
     If the mare does not conceive with the first shipment of semen, no additional breeding fee is      
     required, however, Mare Owner is required to pay the shipping/collection fee for each 
     semen collection that is shipped.
        A photocopy of registration papers (both sides) shall be sent to the Breeder with this contract, unless
          other arrangement have been discussed with Breeder.
       Typical collection days will be Monday through Thursday, but other arrangements may possibly be made
         on special request. Friday collection for Saturday delivery will require additional fee as per Federal
         Express.
  3.  All semen orders must be received by 3:00 p.m. PST the day before the requested collection date.  Late
        orders are not guaranteed.
  4.  Semen shall be provided only to healthy mares in sound breeding condition as determined by  a
        veterinarian.
  5.  The purchaser is entitled to 2 semen shipments per estrus cycle, for no more than 3 cycles per breeding
       season unless agreed to by Breeder.
  6.  Purchaser agrees to have mare examined for pregnancy by veterinarian at 28 days post ovulation and
       again at 60 days.
  7. Purchaser agrees that chilled semen requires special handling and that attempts to breed any mare
      outside controlled conditions and by inexperienced personnel/handlers can greatly reduce, and in some
      cases prevent, chances of conception.
  8. Mare Owner Responsibility
- The responsibility for conception is on the Mare Owner. A qualified,
      experienced licensed veterinarian competent in the use and handling of cooled semen should perform the
      insemination. If Mare fails to conceive from first shipment, Mare Owner is required to have Mare cultured by
      veterinarian and infused, if necessary. Results from  Culture and Sensitivity test results should be faxed to
      ODYSSEY RANCH when requesting next shipment. The Breeder, in its sole discretion, may refuse to ship
      semen beyond three shipments if the Breeder believes the insemination is not proper or the Mare is not
      healthy.
  9. Purchaser agrees to return all insemination certificates to the Breeder/Odyssey Ranch within 30 days of
       insemination.  Failure to comply could inhibit registration of resulting foal.
  10a
. Live Foal Guarantee.  Live foal means the foal shall stand and nurse.  It is understood that if the mare
       proves barren, aborts her foal, or if the foal is stillborn, A RETURN SEASON WILL BE GUARANTEED
      THE FOLLOWING YEAR ONLY, providing proper notification is given. Proper notification shall be defined
      as follows:  Written certification by a licensed veterinarian within seven days that the mare has slipped or
      produced a non-viable foal.  Mare Owner certifies that such abortion or death did not result from any act or
      omission of the Mare Owner during the mare's pregnancy and that the mare's immunizations for equine
      rhinopneumonitis (Equine Herpes Type 1) have been kept current.
  10b. Colored Foal Guarantee.  "Colored" foal is defined as a foal that is at least a single dilute
       (palomino, buckskin, dunskin or dunalino), unless bred to a gray, which might produce the above
       described colors including gray. Should the foal not be of the colors previously described (including gray),
       Mare Owner will be entitled to a return breeding privilege for the same mare the following season.
  10c. Triple Foal Guarantee.  Includes a live, colored (as described in sections 10a & 10b) and patterned
       foal.  "Patterned" foal is defined as color broken with white. Should the foal not have         sufficient color to
       be registered as a Regular Paint under the guidelines of the American Paint Horse Association OR not be
       of a single dilute color as described above OR not stand and nurse, Mare Owner will be entitled to a return
       breeding for the same mare the following season.   
      "LIVE FOAL", "COLORED FOAL" or "TRIPLE FOAL" GUARANTEE WILL BECOME VOID IF THIS          MARE IS SOLD OR TRANSFERS OWNERSHIP.
  11. The breeding season in force for this contract shall begin February 1st and close October 1st of the year
        covered by this contract.
  12. It is further agreed that should the above named stallion die, or become unfit for service, or, if the above
       named mare dies during the breeding season, then the Mare Owner may substitute another mare or breed
       the above named mare to another stallion on the farm that is agreed to by both the Mare Owner and
       Breeder.
  13. A breeder's certificate will be issued to Mare Owner after all expenses have been paid in full and upon
        notification of the birth of the foal.
  14. The booking fee is not refundable.
  15. Liability:  Odyssey Ranch is not responsible for lost, delayed, or damaged semen and makes no
         representatives or warranties of any kind with respect to semen except that it is the stallion's and is viable
         semen at time of shipment.
  16. This contract cannot be reassigned or transferred by purchaser/Mare Owner.
  17. Payment methods:  Cash, cashiers check, money order, Visa, or MasterCard (there will be an
        additional credit card processing fee).
  18.
This contract, when signed by the Mare Owner and the Breeder and accompanied by payment of the
         breeding/booking fee, shall be a binding contract on both parties on the above terms and conditions.
         This contract constitutes the entire agreement between parties concerning breeding of Mare and
