First, The Rescue Program offers two alternatives for any breeder that has a Badlands Hanover sired 2012 weanling on the ground, that was the result of a Badlands Hanover Syndicate Breeding, that has not yet paid the stud fee and is considering euthanizing the weanling:
1) If the breeder pays the stud fee, The Program will list and try to sell the weanling on On-Gait. We will make this sale free of any sale charges or sale commissions.
2) In the event the owner is not willing to pay the stud fee, the Rescue Program will waive the stud fee and will assume the ownership of the weanling. Certain conditions and restrictions apply.
Second, the Rescue Program also offers two alternatives for any breeder that; has a mare in foal to Badlands Hanover as a result of a 2012 Badlands Hanover Syndicate breeding, the breeder would prefer not paying the stud fee and is considering euthanizing the mare:
1)The Program will list the brood mare at auction on On-Gait (stud fee not paid) with a minimum bid of $600.00. Any bid higher than $600.00 will consummate a sale. We will make this sale free of any sale charges or sale commissions.
2) In the event, the brood mare does not sell, the breeder would prefer not paying the stud fee, the Rescue Program will assume the ownership of the mare. The breeder will be free from any 2012 stud fee obligations and any future liability for the mare. Certain conditions and restrictions apply.
"We are offering this program for three primary reasons. First, we are animal lovers, who do not want to see horses destroyed. Second, we believe in our stallion and the potential success of his progeny. Third, we remain optimistic that the Standardbred Industry in Ontario will survive the recent and future decisions and we plan to allow Badlands Hanover to remain there. We are willing to stand by our convictions", stated John Celii, The Badlands Hanover Syndicate Manager.
In the near future, the Rescue Program will contact breeder's with 2012 weanlings on the ground(stud fee not paid), to advise them of their options.
