Agrees not to unduly disrupt the agistor’s herd maintenance program and follow ranch rules including visiting requirements and pasture rules.

Shall not be liable for any sickness, disease, estray, theft, death or other injury which may be suffered by the alpacas, or for any other cause of action arising out of the boarding contract.

Agistor

Will not carry insurance for boarder’s alpacas and other than due diligence for the care of the boarder’s alpacas will not be held responsible for claims.

Boarder

Agrees that their sole remedy, in the event of damage, loss or any event causing loss of value to an alpaca, adult or cria, shall be to make claim against the insurance policy they have acquired, and no claim will be made against the agistor.  Eden’s Ranch Alpaca strongly recommends that Boarders insure their alpacas with “Full Mortality” insurance.
