A Stud Master is an individual responsible for an employer's
breeding stock, the term is usually used of
horses. It is usually
applied regardless of gender; the term 'Stud Mistress' is rarely seen.
The Stud Master typically suggests desired matings to the owner, and arranges
for the same, whether in-house or by contract with animals standing at stud,
approves and arranges matings to the owner's animals at stud requested by
outsiders, and keeps all records, including notifying the appropriate animal
In a large or
formal household the Stud Master may be a permanent position; in this case
the Stud Master is often responsible for the maintenance of the
kennels as well, but
usually it is a part time or contractual arrangement.
