§ 2074. Penalty for fraudulent sale of mare
When the owner or manager of a stallion has complied with the requirements of section 2072 of this title, if the owner or person, in whose name a mare has been mated with such stallion for breeding purposes, disposes of such mare by sale or otherwise before foaling time without first settling with the owner or manager for the service of the stallion, or within 10 days after the disposal of the mare, he or she shall be subject to the same penalties that he or she would be for disposing of a colt encumbered by a lien. If such mare is returned for trial to the stallion after three weeks from the date of the last service and found not to have become pregnant and is not again served during that breeding season, the provisions of this section shall not apply to the disposal of such mare.
