Stallion Service Auction Regulations

“Stallion Owner’s Obligation”

  • The sale of a service fee entitles the mare owner to a service fee for the season of 2018, 2019, or choice of season, depending on what individual stallion owner has noted in Stallion Book and announced.
  • If the stallion owner sells the stallion before fulfilling the obligations to the mare owner, the stallion owner is responsible for paying the mare owner back the service fee, with the exception if the obligation transfers to the stallion’s new owner with the mare owner’s agreement. This should be taken into consideration before selling the service and before selling the stallion.
  • Stallion owner’s obligation is fulfilled when the mare is checked “in foal” by veterinarian.
  • Stallion owner is not responsible in case of stallion’s death or infertility to fulfill the obligation.
  • The stallion does not have to be present when selling the service, but it is highly recommended.
  • $150.00 of the $200.00 entry fee is refunded IF the stallion’s service is sold. NEW: Stallion owners wishing to bring more than one stallion to offer “choice” (one breeding) pay $200 for the first stallion and $50 for each additional stallion.
  • NEW: Stallion owners living too great a distance to bring stallions or with schedule conflicts may participate in the online stallion service auction/silent bidding the day of the auction for $50 per stallion. The $50 will be refunded IF stallion service is sold.
  • Stallion owner may bid on his stallion’s service. If he buys the service, he is responsible for signing the buyer’s slip and paying the full bid price to the American Haflinger Registry.
  • If selling a service, 2018/2019 mare care rates and current stud fee must be stated.
  • Stallion owners must indicate if collection and shipping charges are waived, or if only the stallion service fee is waived.
  • Stallion owners should decorate their stall area, provide literature on their stallion, and include a write-up and music if participating in the Showcase. If write-ups are too long, they will be edited for content, so please keep them a reasonable length.

“Mare Owners Obligation”

  • On purchase of a service fee, the mare owner is responsible for signing the buyer’s slip and paying the full bid price to the American Haflinger Registry.
  • The mare owner is required to pay the mare care rates, collection fees, and/or semen shipping fees as stated by the stallion owner at the auction.
