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!

    Dreamscape farm is offering a reduced stud fee on their stallion Novalis by Jus de Pomme. He is $800 until the end of May.

      You aren't specifying what kind of stallion you are looking for but my stallion is well under $900. Details on my website. He is a Colonial Spanish horse.

        Reputed Testamony (Full TB who belongs to Denny Emerson) is $850. I have a 4 yo Rep filly out of my Buckpasser mare, you can see her in my profile pic.

          You can buy breedings at reduced prices from MO who bought contracts in auctions but are unable to use them because of losing a mare, etc.


          • Original Poster

            No specific needs... I asked as I have been looking at some young,unproven, or rarely used stallions and noticed that the prices are all around 1200-1600. It seems that SOs would have a smaller stud fee for stallions that have not proven themselves in the breeding shed or production shed... I am sure they are out there but I can't find them.To me it seems like for your stallions first year or until he has proven himself that it would make sense to have a stud fee that would attract enough people to get some nice mares/foals.

              Depending on the mare and future plans for the foal, Campesino's stud fee has been reduced to half price for those qualified mares. That would not be under, but right at $900.

                    from nw sporthorse breeders website:

                    Landsong - 2000 Oldenburg NA stallion - Regular stud fee $600

                    Armed Escort - Jockey Club - Regular stud fee $750

                    Walkabout - American Warmblood - Regular stud fee $700

                    of course, these don't include the booking or collection fees...


                    • Original Poster

                      Class- What would the cost be with booking and collection? Its great is some are $700 but if the booking is $300-500 and the collection $100-200.. we are now around $1100 -1400..


                      • #12
                        well, i guess you should be more specific then.. are you looking for stallions with stud fees under $900 or are you looking for stallions whose grand total including shipping, collection and booking are under $900? if you are looking for the grand total under $900, you will probably have to remove novalis, reputed testamony, and campesino from your list as well!


                        • #13
                          I will be offering free breedings to quality mares this year (MO's to pay actual cost of collection, shipping, minimal "booking fee" and a container deposit). It's his first year, we are a little late starting (he'll be in my barn by early June) and I want as many quality offspring on the ground next year. He has older Holsteiner "foundation" bloodlines; paternal grandsire Corporal (same grandsire as Capital I), maternal grandsire Fleming, great grand sires Farnese, Marlon, and Ladykiller. If you're interested feel free to e-mail me for more information...sunkissed81081@yahoo.com


                          • #14
                            I believe young stallions should earn their mark, so I price mine, until they have proven themselves, under your limit of $900 or close to that. Plus I do offer discounts to 'special' mares (all creatures are special of course ). As a result, my boys do get lots of traffic. I see that as future advertisement (the foals are better advertisement then anything).

                            Plus I generally do not ask for the stud fee until the mare is confirmed pregnant. People have advised me against that, but so far ALL mare owners have been good about that, so I'm not too concerned.

                            So Versace B and VanGogh B are available for your price range!



                            • Original Poster

                              Class.. agreed... I was asking if you by chance know more.. what are the booking and collection fees? The stud fee meets the $900 and that is what I am asking with this thread ... but I was also asking if you knew the other fees for those boys, sorry it came off as them not meeting the $900 fee. Do you have a website for them? I have actually dealt with a few SO that are including the first shipment, waiving booking, etc. which makes it very nice!

                                oh sorry, i was getting the info from here:


                                their starting bids start out much lower than their regular stud fees, so maybe an auction would be a good way for you to go!

                                armed escort says $0 booking fee, landsong booking fee - $350, walkabout booking fee - $200, collection fee - $275.00

                                  It's well into the season and SO pretty much know how many mares they are getting this year. Contact the owners of some stallions you like who may not get much traffic and see if they are willing to work with your budget.

                                  Some will not but you won't know if you don't ask.

                                    Edison (Escudo I -Wolkenstein II - Lauries Crusader) is standing for the first year to outside mares under $900. http://www.woodsendfarm.com/Edison.html

                                      I saw on another forum that the young stallion Acclaim has a reduced stud fee of 900.00. He's standing at Three Winds Farm.
