Terms and conditions regarding covering of mare

OBS! “New breeders” must know that if the mare does not get pregnant during the first period of the insemination, the mare can be inseminated again without you having to pay the first instalment once again. (The first instalment is a one-off payment). This counts for this year’s covering season. The payment to Hesselhoej.dk ApS will be handled through invoice to bank account.

You must pay a part of the covering through the first instalment when the semen is being transported. If your mare does not get pregnant after being in oestrus, the insemination will be proceeded at the following oestrus free of charge when you have paid the first instalment.

70 days after the last insemination has been done you will receive an invoice with the final instalment of the covering. This happens unless you provide a certificate that proves your mare is not pregnant. It is your responsibility as the owner of the mare to provide a certificate with the proof of a negative test issued by a vet. This means that the burden of proof rests with the owner of the mare. Without the certificate with the negative test, the owner of the mare is held accountable for the expenses of the final instalment.

All prices must include the cost of covering certificate and VAT (value-added tax). The container where the semen was stored must be returned.

Pricelist of insemination

Pricelist of insemination:
For stabled and inseminated mares at Hesselhoej ApS in the season the cost is 1.600 DKK + VAT

The price covers scanning of ovaries, utensils, and equipment. The price is per mare and counts for the entire season in 2022.

THE FIRST INSTALMENT FALL DUE AT THE FIRST INSEMINATION. THERE WON’T BE A REFUND IF THE STALLION IS REMOVED FROM THE SEASON DUE TO INJURY, ILLNESS OR SALE. IF THAT HAPPENS YOU ARE MORE THAN WELCOME TO HAVE YOUR MARE COVERED BY ONE OF HESSELHOEJ.DK’S APS OWN STALLIONS WITHOUT ANY EXTRA COST.

In case of late payment, SEGES might block the report. In that case the foal won’t be registered before the late payment has gone through. In addition, the owner of the mare must pay the fee that follows due to the delayed report at SEGES.


Discounts and gift cards
Any discounts or gift cards agreement happens on the condition of timely payment. If the payment isn’t maintained, and Hesselhoej.dk ApS is compelled to send a reminder the discount agreement is null and void.


Transportation of semen

If you want your mare inseminated at home, refrigerated semen can be sent to you or picked up by further agreement.

Transported semen can be ordered on following days:
Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday between 7.30 – 8.30 am on telephone (+45) 20770708.

Terms and conditions for transportation of semen:
All expenses i.e., the expenses regarding the insemination and shipping are covered by the owner of the mare. In case of shipping of transported semen, the charge of the shipping may vary.

The buyer is responsible for the delivered semen to not be used for onward sale.

By any dispute it will be handled under Danish legislation in court

EMBRYO TRANSFER:
In case the owner of the mare wants to make use of embryo transfer, it must be notified at the same time as the semen is first being ordered.

If the rinsing is successful and several embryos can be used, another first instalment and following second instalment fall due when the surrogate mare is stated pregnant within 70 days. By freezing of embryos both first and second instalment fall due. The owner of the mare is obliged to document every single rinsing regardless of the result.

Stabling at Hesselhoej

If you decide to stable your mare at Hesselhoej during the period of insemination, you will be charged for the time the mare is stabled for. The mare is also not covered by Hesselhoejs insurance. This means that in case of any accidents, injuries, or the like, Hesselhoej cannot be hold responsible. The owner of the mare is fully aware of this and is the responsible part if accidents or injuries occur during the mare’s stay.

In case there is a need for treatment from a vet, Hesselhoej will do their absolute best to get the owners consent before calling the vet. If the mare shows signs of life-threatening illness or injury Hesselhoej is warranted to call a vet with an eye to treat the mare without the owner’s preceding consent. The owner will hereafter defray the expenses.

Missing pregnancy/flaws regarding the foal

If your mare doesn’t get pregnant using the semen from Hesselhoej, or the foal gets born with flaws, it is not caused by insufficient semen or due to the insemination being mishandled.

Hesselhoej cannot be hold responsible for any sustained injuries, impairments, or the like both during and after the stabling, insemination, and pregnancy.

Right of cancellation
In the case of a special order the 14 days right of cancellation do not apply
