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!

                No. Festrausch and Parabol are per dose only. Most of the others can be purchased by the dose or LFG. A couple are only fresh cooled, too.

                            Finally got their 2012 contracts uploaded but here is our list -

                            Adamant, Again and Again, Avebury WF, Dressage Royal, Showtime WF, Wizard WF and Waldaire all have a LFG with their frozen. As it stands now, none of them are available here in NA with fresh for 2012.

                            The per dose contract will go up later today (provided I get the editing finished).

                                  The big question is stallions who are overseas that are available only via frozen semen, who did not have their semen frozen in the United States. As Equine Stallion Services (formerly EMCO Stallion Services), I used to offer all of the stallions with a live foal guarantee, as I wouldn't import semen that didn't have good fertility rates and felt that it was reasonable to offer a live foal guarantee to compete with US-based stallions. Per the recommendations of several board-certificed theriogenologists, the purchaser had up to three doses provided for the stud fee (one dose per cycle), and additional doses (up to four more) for $250 per additional dose (a mare without fertility issues, bred to a stallion with good fertility by a good vet should conceive within three cycles -- if they don't you need to change one part of the equation - the mare, stallion, or vet!).

                                  The biggest problem came with people who either did not have access to a repro specialist or who did not want to use a repro specialist. Many people wanted two doses per cycle instead of one dose per cycle (only possible if you charge a lot more for imported frozen semen), and then there was the people who would use their regular farm vet for the first one or two breedings, then complain that the stallion wasn't any good, finally use a repro vet, then get the mare in foal. It became a nightmare to manage, especially after one very well known board-certified reproduction specialist in Kentucky told me that it "wasn't worth her time" to check a mare every 6 hours to breed with one dose of semen, and that it would reflect in the cost she would pass on to the mare owner. I'm now hearing of vets charging an insane amount of money to breed a mare with frozen semen (up to $3000 for one cycle - when I told my husband this [a board-certified theriogenologist], he asked where they lived, as he'd like to know where he could make this kind of money for one cycle, as it's usually around $500-$600 here in Ocala!].

                                  If you could guarantee that people would use good vets (as is the policy for many stallion owners in France, one of whom would not allow me to import semen to the US because I couldn't guarantee that a specialist would do all of the breedings), I would be happy to offer a LFG for my stallions. It's sad that there are so many vets who will do the work without wanting to do it right.

                                        frozen LFG

                                        ditto what Oakmont said. I do have a limited LFG on Neapolitano XXIX-18, a rare black Lipizzaner in Europe. His post thaw is 67%. Two took first try with 1 dose yet one mare isn't in foal after 4 doses/2 cycles. I'd say it's the mare or vet or both. It seems they don't observe the 6 hour window and want to bracket it with 2 doses, costing the MO $ and using up limited supply. Very frustrating.
