Hofbesamung is possible. Coverings are made only after follicle control. Ultrasound, pregnancy and follicular checks are calculated separately by the veterinarian. The health service is provided by the station vet Dr. med. Lagershausen performed. Swab specimens from guste mares (except maiden mares) are required.

For the accommodation of the mares are boxes and good pastures available. The daily rate for mares (also with foals) is 10,00 Euro. The subordination is at the risk of the owner of the mare.

If a stallion is not available in the course of the breeding season for special reasons (tournament participation, illness, etc.), if possible, TG sperm can be used or another stallion of the station can be used after consultation.
There is no right to repayment of the cover money.

About the insemination will be issued at the end of the season, a cover slip, which will be forwarded to the breeder and the relevant association after full payment of the cover money.

Frozen semen

TG semen is billed per mare and includes up to max. three semen doses. Thereafter, a new stud fee is due, without credit or entitlement to a credit due to non-performance. The purchase of single doses is not possible. One insemination dose is delivered per horse. Before the semen semen is sent, a usage agreement for the semen must be returned to us by fax or e-mail, otherwise the shipment can not be made.

The TG sperm remains the property of the Stallion Gerd Sosath. In case of non-use, the seed must be returned. The sperm must not be passed on to third parties or used to unidentified mares.

The delivered containers owned by the Gerd Sosath decking station must be returned to the station within seven calendar days. Otherwise, from the eighth day of the calendar, a fee of 25.00 Euros per day will be charged.
In case of non-return or loss of the container, this will be charged in full.

If own containers of the breeders are used, the station Gerd Sosath assumes no liability.
