STUD REPORTS
Sample Stud Report

What is a Stud Report?
A stud report is a record of all of the breedings a jack or stallion performs during the year.  Not only are in-hand breedings recorded, but the exact dates of introduction and removal or mares or jennets is recorded if the jack or stallion is pastured with the mares.  Most registries will require that if a stallion is run with mares (or jennets) that only one male is allowed in group, with the females segregated so that no other stallion or jack can get in.  Some breed associations even require a 30-day wait before a female can be re-bred to a different stud.  All of this would have to be noted in the stud report.

Do I need to file a Stud Report for my Jack?
Yes, the ADMS is now requesting full stud reports – which back up the Breeding Certificate built in the Registration Applications.  In the majority of horse registries, the owner of the DAM at the TIME OF SERVICE (breeder) is responsible for making sure all breeding documentation is correct.  If the breeder does not also own the stallion, both sets of records (the breeder’s mare records and the stallion’s stud reports) should have identical information.  The owner of the DAM at the TIME OF FOALING is the person in charge of foal registration with most horse registration.  ADMS requires that the BREEDER be listed on papers where known.  In addition, if the foal is sired by a registered jack, the jack owner must provide a breeding certificate.  A copy of the breeding certificate should always be kept by the jack owner.  This is a kind of short-form stud report.   If for some reason the breeding certificates are lost, the owner can go back to the stud report to check information.

How do I keep a Stud Report?
You can keep a simple paper log, or one on computer.  If you have more than one jack or stallion, each will need his own record.  The information that should be kept in each log should look something like this:
**********************************************************************************
Jack Name ___________________________________________  Registration Number _______

Color ______________ Ht __________ Microchip # _____________  DNA on File  Y  N

Owner name and address __________________________________________________________

**********************************************************************************

Jennet name _______________________________________________________ Registration Number ______________

Owner name ____________________________________________________ Phone _____________________________

Owner name ____________________________________________ Phone ____________________

Date of first breeding (or intro to pasture ________________________Notes ____________________________________

Date__________________________________ Notes _________________________________________________

You would then fill in dates for the breedings, (or introduction and removal dates of each jennet) and also notes about her foaling status – confirmed, aborted, foaling date, etc.  These are important if the jennets are bred to a different jack later in the season, or if a jennet doesn’t become pregnant.
