    Default Thinking of leasing a mare for Flexible

    How do you find a mare to lease? Proven eventing mare or jumper mare. If you are a farm who does this let me know. This is a very well bred stallion though the known pedigree doesn't go back very far, what is there is very well proven. I can't use my purebred IDs for this...or wouldn't rather. Not necessarily looking for Irish Sport Horse mares either. Thanks PatO

    Check out the sticky at the top of the breeding forum for mare sharing/leasing.

    The ignore list is my friend. It takes 2 to argue.

    Default $2500

    I think that is/was his fee, until now anyway, and it is frozen only at this point. So I really want a proven athlete, a proven broodmare mare with a good repro history and good repro vets nearby. PatO

    Flexible's 2011 contract on the website lists a fee of $2,500 as including:

    A $500 nonrefundable Booking Fee that is due at the time of the signing of the contract.

    A $2,000 Breeding Fee that includes 4 doses of frozen semen for covering 2 cycles. Each straw is 0.5 ml and 4 straws are considered a breeding dose. Each straw contains 175 million sperm which are least 50% motile.

    I could be wrong about this, but IIRC, this represents a reduction in his fee from $5,000 previously, so if I am correct he's a far better value now.
