Mount St John has taken out life insurance for all horses offered at the online auction. The respective contract passes on to the buyer as legal successor with the acceptance of the final bid. 

The insurance premium will be settled with the final auction settlement.  

The insurance cover ends 60 days after acceptance of the bid, however, the buyer shall be entitled to extend the contract at his own expense.  This covers the insurance of the mares, not the unborn embryos but cover is to the value of the knock down price.
