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!

  • good places to sell a breeding?

    I won a breeding to Tantris... Im in Canada and after a few weeks of trying to look into importing the semen... im finding Canada has made it very hard and just not worth it. He is lovely, but by the time I pay for it all, I may as well have just paid for a local stallion without the headach of the shipping and stuff.

    I want to know if there are any good places online where I could advertise it for sale on the states?

    Have you tried asking for frozen semen? That saves a lot of headaches.

      Yes, and my vet didn't seem very interested in using frozen. She suggested I ship my horse to an AI facility.

      I am just an independant individual and I am doing this for my personal use. Mayeb someone who operates a facility would find it easier and more cost effective.

      Just getting frozen semen into Canada is going to end up being almost $1000K for me and that isnt even the cost of sending her to a facility to be bred.

          I agree. I was going to PM you on that. The most I have seen as extra fees for CEM stuff was $250 on top of the regular charges (collection + shipping, which do not change).

          In my case, it meant each collection was adding up to $400. Luckily, the stallion has good frozen semen in Canada already and my mare took on first try. I love frozen.

            Can you find a new vet to go to your farm? My mare never left her stall when inseminated.

            Tantris is a nice stallion and if you like him and think it would be a good match it would be ashame not to use it.

            Can you sell a breeding you won? What does the contract say?

              Well I paid for it, and I don't want to ask the OBHA for the money back...

              EM- I am talking about it being around $1000 for the shipping plus all the paperwork costs.... I have to buy a permit, and then I have to pay the agency who stores the stallions semen to do paperwork, plus I was told I still had to pay a collection fee for frozen which is $250 itself. And she offered to sell me another straw for $75 just in case... so it all ads up pretty quickly....

              On top of that I was told the brokerage fees will be at least $75 and that isn't even with the shipping added and the taxes i'd have to pay to bring it to canada.

              All of what I've listed comes to around $800+ without the actual shipping cost... im not sure why it is ending up costing me so much after reading you bring it in for around 400?

                And no, we don't have alot of vets around here... she said she would come and do it, but she was strongly suggesting looking into whatever the AI facility was because she said that you have to be ultrasounding them every 4 hours or something when your using frozen? But the facility is like 2 hours away.

                  And btw, in regards to AI, I have no idea what im doing... Ive only ever bred through live cover. So having a bunch of different opinions on it doesn't help.

                    Where are you located out of curiosity? That might help with some suggestions as well ...

                    The e-warmbloods forum has a section for selling semen on there - that might be a good place to start

                        Oh. you won it at an auction. Different situation.

                        If your vet isn't enthused,,, I'd pass on her. It is a 'simple' procedure but the vet should want to do it IMO. I wouldn't ask someone to do it who didn't want to. Simple procedure but requires attention to detail, timing, and vet commitment.

                        2 hours.... that isn't 'that' far is it?

                          If you are using fresh semen then you won't have to pay storage charges to the facility that is storing the semen because it will be the stallion who is storing the semen The import permits are not expensive; $35 for single entry or $60 for multiple entry. The broker fees shouldn't be more than $40-$50. The shipping (Fedex) should be under $200. Usually the first collection is included in the stud fee, so if I were you I'd check on that. So a rough tally of the costs above are only around $310 worst case.

                            No, I was told by the owner that I was to send her the $250 collectiong fee... not sure if it is because I wont it at the auction rather then purchasing a breeding from her?

                            And i've had a couple people tell me not to go the fresh route because it could get held up at customs?

                            I wish it were only going to be around $300 because then I wouldn't be as concerned about it.

                            With frozen I was told that I had to pay the company/vet who stores the semen that I had to pay for paperwork to be done on her side, I cant remember the exact cost, but it was around $140.

                            I feel like there has been so much added on top of everything?

                              I'm wondering if McKee-Pownall Vet Service in Millbrook would be a lot closer for you. They do repro work there.

                                It is just odd. Where are you in Eastern Ontario? You can PM me, perhaps I can suggest a few places to call/ask.

                                  Or - contact Tara Hills in Port Perry area if they are close to you. They are a very large, well respected SB facility and their repro vets are tops and so is their facility

                                  The semen should NOT get held at customs if all of your ducks are in a row, and the SO has completed all of the necessary steps at their end. If the paperwork is incomplete or missing - yes - the shipment will get held

                                    I'm a little unclear about the $250 collection fee due the owner on a shipment of frozen. Though the offer of a second breeding dose for $75 was a nice thing. THat's pretty much her cost.

                                      I paid right at $800 to get fresh from California to BC. I would never do it again.
