(Breeding Fee) (Mare Care) (Any Additional Fees) (Grand Total)
There must be down payment of at least half of the asking price before we will mark the foal/horse “sold”. All payments must be made in US currency and paid by a Bank Certified Check or through Walmart Money Transfer. NO OTHER WAYS. The foal/horse must be paid in FULL before it leaves our property. There will be no refund of any money if you, the buyer, decides they no longer want the foal/horse and/or can’t afford to buy the foal/horse anymore. The only way there will be any refund of the money is if the foal/horse gets seriously injured, ill or dies within our care on our property. Any kind of harm that happens while being in the care of the horse hauler/shipper is not our responsibility. If you, the buyer, wants any kind of testing done then it’s your responsibility to do so. Otherwise, the foal/horse are sold as is.
Any kind of fee there might be with a horse hauler/shipper, is the buyers responsibility to pay for. We will NOT pay for any kind of charges. Also, if it’s going to be a long haul for the foal/horse and the hauler requires a bale of hay for the foal/horse, we can send one square bale along, but the buyer needs to let us know ahead of time and the price of the hay will be added onto the total amount due for the foal/horse before it leaves our premises. Same goes with a halter and lead rope. We always send a halter with/on the foal/horse when it leaves our property, but if the hauler calls for a specific halter and lead rope, this price will also be added onto the total amount due for the foal/horse before it leaves our premises.
If you, the buyer, pays the full asking price of the foal/horse (what we are initially asking), then we will pay for the halter, lead rope (if required by hauler), and for the vet to come out to do the coggins and health papers. But if we give you a discount on the foal/horse, then you are responsible for these charges.
Any kind of certain shipping papers needed for foals/horses to be shipped in the US and/or over seas needs to be clarified with us right away so that we can have everything in order and ready for when the time comes. As mentioned above, all foals/horses must have half down to mark them “sold”. We will do payments (biweekly or monthly) until foals are weaned, by then they must be paid in full (otherwise boarding fees will be charged and no free board will be given). Same with horses (already weaned and ready to go), we will do payments but must be made in reasonable time frame (biweekly) until paid in full (horses will receive the 2 weeks free board but no more). Any kind of boarding fees with us will be added to the total amount due for the foal/horse before it leaves our premises. We will board a foal/horse with us for 2 weeks free of charge (unless noted otherwise above), but anything more than that you, the buyer, is responsible for paying before the foal/horse leaves our property (however, if you get a discount on the foal/horse, then you will not receive free boarding). Boarding costs need to be paid biweekly and are priced according to the cost to feed/take care of that foal/horse (feed, dewormer, shots, vet costs, ect).
This agreement is subject to change to whatever we see fit and is fair for us and the buyer. Thank you for looking at our breeding program here at Leyh Quarters, and we hope you enjoy your foal/horse you purchased from us as much as we enjoyed them while they were with us.
Peggy Leyh and Kayla Hoffner
