1.  Bar-On Ranch agrees to provide Buyer with one dose of frozen semen from the stallion Skippoleon AQHA #4606741 for the 2023 breeding fee of  $800. which shall be payable upon execution of this contract.  If a two dose insemination method is requested an additional breeding dose may be purchased for a fee of  $300.  Multiple mare contract breeding fees are available at 3-4 -  $750., 5+ $700.  The frozen semen will be stored at Intermountain Stallion Services (ISS) A division of Hoffman A I Breeders, 1950 South US HWY. 89-91 Logan, Utah 84321. Phone 435-753-7883. For further shipping information please contact ISS directly, please note that semen will be shipped only from ISS directly to the veterinarian, or a qualified storage facility. Mare owner agrees to handle all related shipping and container fees directly with ISS.

2.  Buyer specifically agrees and understands that no semen will be shipped until all fees and necessary paperwork have been received by Bar-On Ranch.  Make checks payable to:  Gene Baron.  

3.  Bar-On Ranch assumes responsibility only to deliver semen in viable condition at the time of delivery, the semen must be administered by a licensed veterinarian familiar with the concept and practical use of frozen equine semen with access to an ultra sound machine. Your mare must be present at your veterinarian's facility or a qualified insemination station during her cycle and she must be bred there. Attempts to use frozen semen outside the controlled environment of a qualified facility can greatly reduce or even prevent chances of conception.

4.  ISS will provide detailed thawing and usage instructions for the veterinarian.  A single insemination dose consisting of 4 x 0.5ml straws containing a minimum of 200 million for a total minimum sperm of 800 million.   The mare owner hereby agrees to inseminate the full dose or doses, all straws that are delivered. All veterinarian charges in connection with the mare are to be paid by the mare owner. All efforts will be made to achieve conception, however it is highly recommended  that only mares who are reproductively normal be used for breeding with frozen semen. We recommend a recent cervical culture and uterine biopsy (suggested for barren mares or maiden mares over the age of three years, or any mare that has a history of breeding problems or was unable to conceive the previous breeding season.) 

5.  The mare owner agrees to perform a pregnancy ultrasound on the 16th day after the insemination. A second ultrasound 30 days after insemination is recommended as well due to the risk of twins. The results of the ultrasound shall be sent to the stallion's owner.  Should the mare be barren after first cycle.  Additional  doses may be sent at no cost, shipping and container fees will apply.

6.  Live Foal Guarantee:   Should the mare not settle this breeding season, abort or not have a live (standing or nursing) foal,  the mare owner will be entitled to a renewal of this contract during the following year only for the same mare. The following conditions apply for a re-breeding guarantee: Bar~On Ranch shall be notified of the abortion or death of the foal within two (2) days by phone or within one (1) week in writing,  This notice shall be accompanied by a signed statement from a licensed veterinarian stating the loss of pregnancy or death of the foal and the foal did not stand and nursing prior to death. The mare shall be checked in foal by a licensed veterinarian between 45 and 60 days after the last breeding date.  Bar~ On Ranch shall be notified in writing of the mare's pregnancy condition. The mare shall receive Rhino vaccinations at 5, 7 and 9 months of pregnancy.

7.  In case of a return breeding the second season, there will be no charge for one breeding dose of semen, shipping and container fees will apply. If the same mare is examined by a licensed equine Veterinarian and tests not to be breeding sound the owner must submit a request to substitute an alternate mare to breed along with a written statement from the Veterinarian, attesting to the breeding state of the alternate mare. The guarantee is complete with the mare being checked in foal after re-breeding.

8.  A Transported Semen Breeders Certificate will be issued after all expenses have been paid in full and upon notification of the birth of foal and details to include (date of birth, sex and color) within 30 days after birth.                                                                                                       .  

9.  The parties agree the Mare Owner shall assume all responsibility for the condition of the mare and shall bear all risk of loss or damage to the mare, weather by death, disease, injury, infection or otherwise, and by any cause whatsoever, and therefore agrees to hold Bar~On Ranch or persons employed by or associated with Bar~On Ranch harmless for any and all damages associated therewith.
