Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services – Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products – While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

  • Which stallion owners are willing to ship LATE in the season?

    Out of curiosity, and inspection and registration issues aside, which stallion owners ship fresh semen really late in the year (think September/October/maybe even November!)?

    I know Kathy is awesome--she humored me last year when I ended up with a new mare late in the year that I thought would cross particularly well with Mannhattan, and that I didn't want to leave open. Mannhattan seemed happy to help out, too.

    Who else is willing to ship when a breeder ends up in a pickle that late in the year?

    Escapade's owner Alicia at BarringtonHillFarm.com is always more than happy to ship late. I am still trying with a pony mare this year. She is great to work with and Escapade has super swimmers. I am thrilled with my 2 Escapade fillies and look forward to 2 hopefully 3 next year.

      Edgar at Rainbow Equus. He has a fabulous stable of boys and is a joy to work with. I just had a good friend breed her mare a few days ago and Edgar was more than happy to accomodate.

                            HilCat Farm with does with Willemoes...he has a few more collections scheduled tentatively for late foaling mares within the next month at least...

                            Hilda Lanaux is also doing early bird breeding specials starting Sept 1st through February. Breedings booked/ paid for by Oct 31st receive a 40% discount. Also a discount for those MO's agreeing to nominate their foals to the IHF or IJF.
                            Always special considerations to Proven Show and Broodmares as well as Multiple mare discounts.
                            Willemoes at HilCat Farm is available for a "by the dose" option with fresh cooled semen at a reduced fee if you want to go that route.

                            He is a 16.3hd Elite Danish stallion and also approved GOV, Oldenburg , Holsteiner and BWP. He is nominated for the IHF & IJF for 2010 and will also be for 2011.
                            Here are some photos and more info on him:

                            Hilda Lanaux at HilCat is great and very accommodating to work with.....her number is 985 630 5552.

                              While I do think Willemoes is a very nice stallion, I did not find the incentives enough for me to breed to him. I had inquired about breeding my Elite mare to him as a one time breeding, which was offered at $1000 for one shipment, no LFG. His regular LFG fee is $2400. For me, in this economy, those are too steep with all the lovely stallions around, both fresh and frozen. I am happy for them with his success and wish them all the best with such a nice stallion, but the cost was not competitive, to me. JMHO.

                                Thanks so much for posting such nice words about Willemoes....just to clarify a few things:

                                The $2400 was Willemoes' regular fee, which included the first collection and shipment to the MO.

                                Hilda decided to simplify things this year and price his fee at $2000 with LFG with the MO to pay the vet clinic for collection/shipping separately.

                                From Sept 1st thru Oct 31st- 40% discount = $1200

                                From Nov 1st thru Dec 31st- 30% discount= $1400

                                From Jan 1st to Jan 31st- 20% discount= $1600

                                From Feb 1st to Feb 28th- 10% discount= $1800

                                * Additional discounts for MOs who agree to nominate their foals to the IHF & IJF

                                * His is a 2 year breeding contract

                                Hope this helps

                                    We just got a collection of Spy Coast Farm's SCF Renaissance for ponygirl's mare. Semen was rocking good and SCF was extremely accommodating with the scheduling.

                                    Will also be using Fidelio and possibly a JSF stallion for a late season breeding.

                                        Willimoes is NOT listed as approved for breeding with Oldenburg NA on either the farm's website or OLNA's website. Are you sure? Was he just recently approved and not listed yet?
