Does anyone know where I could find a sample contract for this type of business? My vet has asked if I would be willing to use my facility and knowledge to foal out someone else's mare. I am wondering what kind of contract, with liability wording I can find. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you - Sandy

I have foaled out mares for over 20 years and never used a contract. Just the fact they entrust their mare to you to bring her to your place is enough of a contract for me.

Cathy - I feel that way too, but in this day and age, what would you do if something happened to the mare or foal? What if the person thought they should sue you? How would you protect yourself? I guess I'm just trying to cover all bases. I have only foaled out my own mares.

I have no experience of foaling out other peoples mares because i wouldnt do it...its bad enough doing my own ha ha!!!

But my idea would be that the mare must be insured and that the contract covers all things like if the foal dies or the mare or both etc because i think you are right in this day and age people sue for much less! If the worst happens make sure you are not liable...there are no guarantees with any foaling but if someone elses foal dies they will look for someone to blame and question what you did or didnt do....i would just be careful, someone with more experience in contracts can do this for you i am sure!!! Good luck!

No matter what you have on paper they can still sue you, but the facts are they knew the mare was going to foal, they sent her to you and intrusted her in your care. So thye gave her to you the foal died, they obviously by the act of sending her to you thought you were the best place for her to be when she in fact foaled. Also if anything were to happen you would have your vet to back up your story.

Sandy get a notorized contract!!!!!!!! A contract can stop them from winning their case. State word for word all your credentials and their exspectations. This way if something goes wrong you have proof that they were aware of what you could and could not do. What you are willing and not willing to do. Contractas werent made up just for the sake of writing they arent fool proof but they do help. having their mare insured is always good too but not nessasary as the only thing it would do is maybe is help ease their financial worries of replacing her. It doesnt protect you at all!!! Most of all get it notorized if its not notorized its worthless

Thanks, Jenni - now if I could just find a model contract that I could write one from.
