Breeding Certificates - when do you receive yours?
So I am breeding for myself for the first time and have a mare 54 days in foal. When do I receive the breeding certificates from the stallion owner?

According to APHA:

Breeder's certificates, which are available from the APHA, are issued solely at the stallion owner's discretion. Terms for when the breeder's certificate will be submitted to the APHA vary among stallion owners. Typically, a stallion owner will submit the certificate when:
1. The stud fee has been paid;
2. The mare is pronounced in foal;
3. The mare is picked up by the mare owner;or
4. A live foal is produced.

Essentially, breeder's certificates are the stallion owner's protection against default on the part of the mare owner. For instance, if the mare owner fails to pay all necessary fees, the stallion owner can withhold the breeder's certificate so the mare owner cannot register his or her foal until all fees are paid in full.
Likewise, the mare owner should have a signed stallion contract to ensure that the stallion owner fulfills his or her end of the agreement.

Not sure about other clubs or countries rules and regs though.

Thank you, Im in the UK so all apart from number 4 (production of a live foal) are done :). I actually paid my stud fee in February just to stop me changing my mind at the last minute :)

The stallion owner has until Nov to submit the breeding report I think. I always file early so depending on what the PP has written as well as when the report is filed can play into when.

CAHR requires DNA with the registration application so that effectively wiped out stallion/breeding reports. Very handy. LOL

We have to have DNA taken at the grading shows but not at registration i dont think? I will have to look it up. Still early days yet and the LFG states she needs a scan before 20 days, at 30 days and 60 days. Dee's 60 day scan is on Monday. :)

I would have to go back to read the rules but we had to file DNA also. Still had to do breeding reports as well as send in DNA on the mares to register foals if they didn't have DNA on file. Certain tests are being required depending on who's who in the pedigree. They're going to a panel test for everything. I wouldn't mind seeing the Paint people do the same. Sad to breed out HYPP and the rest but still have them in the Paint horses from irresponsible or unaware breeding. ETA I read AQHA for the first response but have filed both APHA and AQHA. Rules are similar except for DNA requirements for AQHA. My paints I have done in case there is ever any question.

HYPP is a horrid disease but unless every breeder is responsible and tests, it will never go :(.

The mare is graded with the British Hanovarian Horse Society (BHHS) - the Stallion is a KWPN multi-graded but the foal will be registered with WBS (British Warmblood Breeders Studbook)
