I am curious how some determine a breeding fee for their Jr stallions? I am putting together a contract and fee structure for next year and am wanting to get it ironed out in the next couple months. 

Also to those that are breeding mares, what catches your attention first? Bloodlines, incentives, fee, conformation....?

It seems that the stallion's performance should come into play, however there are a lot of stallions that have no performance history that have produced awesome get. 

Looking for some imput :)

Thank you!

Years ago I was in your shoes, what I learned is that you about have to have some of your own mares to put under your boy at first. It is a pretty rough road till you get some of his Get out and performing. People will tell you how much they love your boy and then generally go with something proven. With that being said---stud fee is really based on the market, you can set it wherever you want and still make deals to people. Remember though, stud fee somewhat dictates what the resulting foals are worth--so if you advertise a $500 stud fee--it makes the foals worth less.

Also with a JR stud, if you arent getting $1000+ you are losing money.

You know I love me a pedigree first. That's what will catch my attention,  then I look. It's not the pedigree in the end that will get me, I want it all conformation, temperament, produce, accomplishments,  but the first thing that makes me look twice is the pedigree.

As far as the fee, I think for the first 3 years at stud, you should make really really good deals for proven mares and state that in your advertising. The mares can make or break you. Get the best you can.

It's not easy proving a stud and it sure isn't cheap. I think to prove one, it takes financial sacrifice for a few years, unless he's a world champion, bad to the bone, etc. ..

Working on a group of nice mares for next year :) and the contract. His bloodlines fit the current market and he's handsome with a great mind. His sire has produced some nice winners and his dam is bred right. I figure if nothing else, he'll be a great gelding lol!

He sounds nice, would love to see a picture of him. I'm not into breeding so not looking to breed just like to see the horse

He's beautiful. He has an old-style QH head, which I happen to like.

theres are a lot of good studs out there for a cheap fee. 

Things that add value to your fee:

Incentives - just about a must

being a money earner himself 

pedigree - outcross might help

Dam is a producer along with sire success

not being palomino - something to consider

conformation
