Stud Regulations 2017

I) GENERAL

By placing your semen order, you accept the stud regulations and the insemination contract; if you stable your mare with us, you also accept our terms and conditions with regard to liability and stabling. Details of these are displayed in the mares’ stable. When covering your mare for the first time, you must provide a copy of the pedigree certificate and/or breeding permit form of your association at the time of breeding: the breeding season starts on 15 February and ends on 31 August.
•    We are happy to present studs to interested breeders. Please phone in advance to make an appointment.
•    Stalls with regular paddock access are provided for our visiting mares booked for insemination. Daily livery rate for mares w/o foal: € 15.00, with foal: € 20.00.
•    If you are not using one of our own studs we charge the following processing fee per heat:
€ 100.00 for fresh semen
€ 125.00 for frozen semen

II) SEMEN SHIPMENTS

In order to ensure optimal deliveries, please note the following:
1)    Semen orders for the following day can be placed from Monday to Friday until 10.30 am, on Saturday until 9 am. Please order by phone only. Our number: +49 (0) 8561/1400.
Please note: No shipping on Sundays and public holidays. Nevertheless, collection in person is possible on these days. Your delivery will be ready for you from 1 pm.

2)    We usually ship a maximum of 3 portions of fresh semen per heat and provide you with semen for 3 heat cycles. This excludes frozen semen.

3)    The stud fee is due at the time of your initial order/gestation unless the conditions state that the stallion of your choice requires advance payment. Additional shipments are only made once the due fees have been received. If we have not received gestation/non-gestation confirmation 8 weeks after the semen shipment, the additional gestation fee becomes due automatically and will be invoiced.
For Perpignan Noir and Lebenstraum: in case of non-gestation, a 50% credit applies the following year. A certificate of non-gestation from a veterinarian must be provided by 15 September.

4)    Shipping costs vary according to destination and are charged to the person placing the order. Please call our office for more detailed information. For deliveries of frozen semen using one of our freezer boxes we charge a € 80 rental fee.

5)    Please return the transport and freezer containers by mail within 5 days (postage paid by you). In case of freezer boxes, we reserve the right to organise their return at the expense of the mare holder after these 5 days have passed.

6)    We are using an external freight company for the delivery of your order. Hengststation Bachl cannot be held liable for the timely delivery of your order.

7)    With every delivery you receive two copies of the semen documentation form for each portion. This should be checked by you, filled out and signed by your vet and one copy per semen portion returned to us within one week (email or fax is fine).

8)    The broodmare holder / breeder must return the last semen documentation form to us before 15 September. Non-gestation also has to be confirmed by a veterinarian and reported to us no later than 15 September. If the breeder fails to provide the required notification, the additional gestation fee becomes due and will be invoiced.

9)    To change an invoice or the breeding permit to a new breeder we require a written declaration by both the old and the new breeder and charge € 10.00 for the amendment. The stud fee remains the obligation of the broodmare holder/breeder placing the order.

10)    f you are inseminating your mare with semen from your own horses we require the insemination certificate no later than 7 days after the first insemination.

III. Stud fee and further regulations

1)    The stud fees are inclusive of VAT and are due no later than 10 days after the invoice date. Late payments incur a reminder fee and any collection charges that may occur in and out of court.
This does not apply to stud fees for Chanoc, Perpignan Noir, Lebenstraum and Vingino as their fees need to be paid in advance.

If the domicile of the breeder is in a foreign country the insemination fee as well as the in-foal fee and also perhaps incurrent shipping costs are immediately due after conclusion of a contract. If the breeder sends the stallion owner an Attestation of No Foal by October 15th of the year at the latest, the stallion owner will refund the in-foal fee to the breeder – or, if the breeder desires – credit the amount towards receivables due to the stallion owner by the breeder resulting from future contracts. If the stallion owner does not receive an Attestation of No Foal by October 15th of the year the contract was concluded, the in-foal fee will not be refunded even if the mare did not come in foal.

2)    You may only produce one foal per stud fee. You therefore expressly agree not to conduct any further insemination attempts if insemination was successful with the first individual portion. Where frozen semen is used, the mare owner agrees to return to the keeper of the stallion any unused portions of frozen semen within 14 days after successful fertilisation has been confirmed, with any costs or risks remaining with the mare owner.

3)    If a stallion is unavailable for certain reasons (e.g. competition, illness), frozen sperm can be used or an alternative stallion can be offered.

4)    At the end of the breeding season and once all required documentation has been received and all costs have been settled, we provide you with a breeding certificate for the insemination. This will automatically be sent to the breeder and the relevant breeding association after the stud fees have been settled in full. This certificate is required for birth notification and registration of the foal at your regional association.

5)    The following bank account should be used for all payments:
