Exclamation Leasing a mare for breeding purposes

I was looking into leasing a mare for breeding purposes, I havent looked into mares yet or costs etc. But I want to have some opinions if its more profitable just to buy a mare and to resell after the weanling or to lease..
I currently own a Qh stallion and would lease a mare to ather stay at my place and do the breeding there or stay at the owners.
My stallion has great conformation and has a very good attitude, very calm patient etc. but hasnt competed yet or anything but is broke and is a all arounder afraid of nothing.. he has 2 offsprings and are beautiful so I am very eager to breed a mare for my self !
I also wanted to have more info of some of the contracts for the costs of the mare in case of complications or death.
If you guys have any personnal experiences with leasing mares for breeding purposes that would be great to hear the stories!

Cost is going to vary depending on the mare. If you want a good mare then it will be less expensive then buying one of the same quality. If you are just looking for any old mare then it could be less expensive to buy one but you may not be able to sell the mare down the road.

I look at it this way. If you are going to get a mare to breed to your stallion get the best mare you can find. The mare is much much more important then the stallion. A great mare will make a good stallion better. I have found very very few stallions who can make a ok mare a great one when it comes to producing.

I leased my mare to my trainer so she could breed to her and required that she paid the board and all medical expenses that went along with the pregnancy. She also paid for and fed the Pre-natal supplements. I don't remember what clause we had about about death (it was years ago and my mom decided that portion) but we did have her insured for the price we paid for her originally which may be something you look into.
