Sell mare, get a custom foal, possible contracts????
Basic scenario - I wish to sell a mare, but get a custom foal out of her.
She would most likely be sold confirmed in foal ( I pay stud fees, veterinary costs, etc.) She would spend her pregnancy and foal out at the buyer's place.
Anyone can help me with a sample contract?
I did something like this..."Sold" mare to a stallion owner and payment to me was the first foal out of this cross. New owner/stallion owner was in charge of all fees surrounding the breeding/foaling/etc; I wouldn't pay anything until I picked up the weanling. It was technically a lease and I still owned the mare until completion of the contract.
To put it lightly the whole deal was a nightmare. An ironclad contract is incredibly necessary; I might honestly involve a lawyer in this one to draw up a custom contract because there are *so* many bases that need to be covered, and a conniving lessee/buyer can do so much "damage" if they can find loopholes (or think they find loopholes). You just can't trust people these days.
For the sake of your mare and future foal if you do not involve a lawyer, it truly might be a good idea to do like it was suggested above and foal out the mare yourself. This would simplify the contract quite a bit as you don't have to stipulate everything down to a T of what the mare is to receive/how the mare is to be treated/etc etc etc. I could never do it again.
FWIW, my mare never ended up conceiving let alone producing a foal, and had to be rescued from the lessee and given away as a permanently lame, likely sterile pasture puff.
