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!

    Non-purebred Arabian mares: $500.00 (with $250.00 booking fee)...plus they are paying 1/2 of the foals Sweepstakes Nomination.

    This is a 2007 offer only. His fee is going up for 2008 because he is kicking butt at all his shows and on his Dressage tests.

      I will say that I was breeding 25 years ago and paying higher studfees than are being charged today, and those stallions I paid for back then were lesser stallions than some mentioned here. The Verband approved stallions, such as Showjumper66, Dreamscape Farms and ShowjumpersUSA stand are a fabulous value for the breeders money (even over $900 !). These stallions are not only comparable to the best of Europe, but are further proven with premium foals, competition careers and marketability, being promoted well here in North America. I am well versed in this end of the business and such stallions have been selected, imported, competed and managed at far greater expense than you can imagine, by discerning owners who are not only offering superb stallions, but highly professional service that is worth every penny over the lifetime of the horse you are seeking to produce.

        Aren't you guys forgetting that the majority of foreign stallions can be had for less than $900.00 a breeding dose? And the only additional charge is shipping of the tank....

          yes that is true. But foreign stallions are frozen with no LFG.

            Our stallion no longer fits in the under $900 category, unless you apply for discounts. However, be sure to check costs of collections etc. In our case we split collections at actual cost , so the collection fee can be as small as $45, when split four ways which is the max we will do. Some farms charge a flat collection fee of up to $250 for each MO, even when they are splitting the semen 6 ways. This can result in less than stellar semen, and shipment of a single dose, possibly increasing your final costs immensely. Some also have very constrictive contracts, and limited LFG. Others are designed to make you a happy MO...

            It is imperative to do all the homework before booking.

              Our stallions fee is $850, that includes the booking fee and the first collection. We are offering significant discounts to proven mares.

                I have one stallion (TB) that is starting his breeding career this year and we are offering a special price of $250 stud fee (he has no babies on the ground as of yet) that does NOT include collection costs or mare care for live cover (only on TB mares to stay sound with Jockey Club). We have offered the first 10 mare owners this price and there are still 4 slots left so if you are interested (or anyone else for that matter) contact us at upnoversc@pbtcomm.net or go to the website www.upandoverfarm.com to see TANZER. Photos there do not do him justice but we needed to get something up when we started the site. I'll be uploading more photos of him soon. Thanks.

                      I have a very nice TB stallion and his stud fee is $600, including booking fee. He has two babies on the ground so far.

                        Alacazam up in West Virginia is $500. His babies are just now old enough to step into the hunter rings and are showing some very nice jump.

                          I think the stallion market is reflective of the housing market. When housing is going up, MO are optimistic and breeding. When the market goes south, MO get worried and cut back, or get out.

                          Publicly stated stallion fees remain the same, unlike most commodities.

                          Using "private treaty" would make sense in such a market, but some MO gasp and assume the stallion (or the sales horse) is beyond their reach.

                              Foxwind SL (Palmenwind x Fogara Jana - Adrian) is another under $900. For a fee of $850 you get your booking fee, stud fee, first collection and LFG covered. On top of that we offer discounts for exceptional mares. He is a young Trakehner just beginning to make a reputation (good or bad ) for himself. His first two limited foal crops show quite a bit of promise, but only time will tell for certain.

                                Campesino is NOT $900. His website has him listed at $1800.

                                  I think his owner maybe offering a late season discount (?)

                                      Hi there,
                                      We currently stand three stallions - Half Moon Romance (TB -approved CSH), Double Deposit (TB - AQHA approved) and Briarwyn Perri (Welsh, Section A). While Half Moon Romance is usually $1000.00 Cdn (AI or LC), for a limited time (and you can visit our website for more info if you'd like) his fee has been reduced to HALF ($500)! This applies to all mares, any breed registry - they dont have to qualify.
                                      Double Deposit is offered by Private Treaty, and while that seems to put people off, his fee really isn't much. The only reason we advertise by Private Treaty, is his fee varies, depending on the type of mare bred (ie. TB (race mares), AQHA, grade etc), but he is actually quite low in comparison to other stallions of his caliber.
                                      Briarwyn Perri is standing all of 2007 at a reduced fee - $300 Cdn.

                                        I believe Castle Cove's stud fee is 750 the last time I looked. Great bloodlines and He's proven himself as a performance horse and with his foal crops.

                                          I just have to add, I met Red Wine yesterday. Wow! What a lovely, lovely boy! He's very correct, a good mover & has a great temperament. He's a dark, blue-black with chrome that goes on forever & lots of roaning on one side of his neck (rabicano - he's also sabino). I bet his babies are going to have serious bling! I can not wait to see how he produces.
