Stud fee Question
Just curious what you all think or would expect in this situation...
You have bred your female to a male and paid the full stud fee. Female turns up not pregnant. Repeat breeding is offered, but due to female coming in season earlier than normal, stud owner is unable to accommodate, so breeding is planned for her next season. Before this could happen, the female passes away (not due to any genetic issues or fault of the owner). Would the stud owner just keep the stud fee? Would they offer him to another female if/when the bitch owner has another suitable female? Maybe offer that the stud fee go toward a puppy? Just looking for opinions and thoughts. Thanks!
