Hi, i aquired a mare in foal. There is a lfsn from the stud. Since i didnt breed her, does the lfsn tranfer with the ownership of the mare? Or does that vary with each stud? I am still waiting on her paperwork. So i cant read anything on it. So i thought maybe someone could help me. Thanks

Do you mean the pricing? Then yes.

Mylute's stud fee is $2,500 (last I checked). If you were to purchase a mare in-foal to him, then the fee of $2,500 applies to you if you still own the mare (and foal) when it is born and stands and nurses (LFSN). If the mare slips the foal or it is stillborn, you don't have to pay (you should notify the JC and stud farm of course).

Only thing you don't pay is the booking fee the original owner (breeder) probably had to pay.

Depending on the stud farm you might get a discount on the fee if the foal dies within a day and you have proof of it, but otherwise you have to pay.

Did you acquire the mare through a sale or did you buy her from someone? If she came from a sale, usually the seller has to pay the Stud fee, not sure if it’s still the same rule if you privately bought her.

I heard the opposite (whoever buys the i/f mare has to pay the fee).

The question cannot be answered without more information. If you acquired the mare privately, then it depends on what your contract or bill of sale says.

If you bought her through an auction house like Keeneland or Fasig Tipton, the stud fee will have been paid prior to sale and you should have been given the stallion certificate. In most cases, though the "stands and nurses" guarantee does not transfer to the new owner.
