The stallion does one thing, ejaculates sperm and really... That's free. Other then that he and his owner have no commit to carrying, birthing and raising a foal.

May be where you are that may be the case however in my neck of the woods and your mare got onto my property and used my Stallion You would be paying. I am a responsible horse owner and make sure my horses stay home.
It is your responsibility to keep your inseason mare form escaping her enclosure. It is your responsibility to make sure she can not escape and wreck havoc. It is your responsibility as a horse owner to be aware of the consequences of the antics of an in season mare. Slidestop are you one of the many women owners I have seen on treks that have brought along their in season mare regardless of the impact they have on other horses and the danger to the riders that causes.
One of our mares was so bad she would back up to any thing. Now can you really blame the owner of the Stallion.
Now as for the mare would need a lot of special vet care so on and so forth. If you cannot control your in season mare do you really expect the owner of a stallion who had no input into your mare getting in foal because your mare jumped the fence to pay. As I said before. In my neck of the woods given the circumstances out lined. You would be paying for the unautherised use of my Stallion any dammage to him if he gets kicked, and the stud fee would be considerable. Not to mention the legal bill if you decided to contest it.
Just a passing question after reading some of the comments have any of you ever been on a trail ride, having to riding single file over a high pass with the mare infront of you winking and squirting. Its **** dangerous for the horse behind, not to mention the rider. And very inconsiderate of the owner bring a horse in that condition on a trail ride. I know myself and male friends will not take their mares out when in season.
Cheers all and safe riding
