• If you are using email or text to place an order, we must have all account information (shipping address,
FedEx/UPS account number, credit card, etc.) on file. We do not allow the use of our Fed Ex account, so it is up to the breeder to set up their own account.
• In your email/text, please include the Mare/Stallion and how you plan to obtain semen.
Example: Much Madness/Sweet Lou. Pick-up. If you do not receive a confirmation by 7 am the day you are ordering, please call to ensure that your message was received. We cannot be responsible for technology
failures.
