  • For a mare not in foal the breeding fees are € 300.- (excl.

Schockemöhle stallions will receive a 50% reduction in 2025. At Blue Hors, fixed costs differ per stallion.
  • Invoices for foreign billing addresses (with the exception of invoices for ICSI and frozen semen) will be sent no later than 14 days after the first order (with exceptions). This will then amount to the full stud fee of the selected stallion at that time. If the mare is not pregnant at the end of the season or has been switched to a cheaper stallion, the overpaid amount will first be settled with the outstanding items (such as administration, shipping and NVWA export costs). The costs that have not been settled, as well as the difference in stud fees if the stallion has been switched to a more expensive stallion, will be invoiced afterwards. If the mare stays at our station, the invoice must be paid before the collection of the mare (unless otherwise agreed).

ICSI Regulations at van Uytert Stallion Station 

If a breeder uses the innovative ICSI method, we initially calculate the stud fee for the stallion once. If several foals are born, we calculate the breeding fee per live born foal (2nd and next). Therefore, no cost per washed embryo is calculated, because this method already involves a lot of costs for the breeder. 

Stabling costs

  • Mare without foal € 13.50 per day excl. Vat.

  • Mare with foal € 15.00 per day excl. Vat.

Grazing costs

  • Mare without foal € 10.00 per day excl. Vat

  • No mares with foals in our field. The risk is to high for us with mares and foals together.

Mares will be stabled in Heerewaarden at the risk and expense of the owner.

When delivering your mare, please bring the mare’s passport to our administration office. Mares staying at the station must be vaccinated against influenza and rhino.
