Don't Forget: Stallion Registrations are Annual

Indiana Stallions must be registered annually to be a registered Indiana Sire. This must be done by October 1 annually, and is $150 per stallion. 

After October 1, but before any mares are bred, the fee increases to $400 (new stallions never standing in Indiana are still $150).
