I posted this under stallion handling but feel it is better to post it here.I have a 4 year old stallion who I have raised and raced. I will be promoting him for the first time. I had an ad made out, but I am unsure the best way to promote him, any stallion owners out there care to share their expertise?

Moderator Message:

The best way to promote him is unfortunately, not here! Our front page of the board specifically states: "Please note that it is not for commercial advertising (including but not limited to stallion advertising)". Consequently, all links to the stallion have been removed from this post and the other post on the subject, deleted.

Please, everyone feel free to discuss advertising stallions, but don't advertise them here!!

Thank you.

Hey Jan,
It all depends on your budget, if you are promoting him as a race horse sire, TB or QH... Or sport horse, barrel racing or hunter jumper sire? Are you planning on shipping semen or live cover? If you have limited funds like me, I used DreamHorse.com and Equine.com to advertise my pony stallions since I can ship semen and it is a cheap way to advertise nationally. I also advertise within my state in magazines and websites and locally at feed stores, tack store, horse show and equine events.
Really good comformation and action photographs and videos are a must.
Good luck.

I am sorry I was not advertising, just seeking a critique on his conformation. I also wanted to show what the ad looked like to see if I should change something....at the same time not thinking about the rules I did read a long time ago about not advertising....not smart of me, it will not happen again. can I post a couple conformation pictures?...no ad on them I promise. Sorry Jos. : (

Anything that draws attention to a specific stallion has to be considered advertising - and that includes posting links to photos, so I'm afraid the answer is "no".

This site is strictly dedicated to the actual reproductive process, so even allowing discussion of advertising techniques is right at the edge of the subject matter. The trouble is that once one introduces links to a stallion for whatever reason, then one has to allow it for everyone - and (a) we're not aiming to do that as it's not what we're here for; and (b) one of the free benefits that people that have supported the business by having us freeze semen or stand their stallions with us (and have therefore paid us to perform those services) suddenly becomes a free-for-all, which isn't really fair to our paying clients...

I hope you understand our reasoning (and if you want to have us freeze semen or stand your stallion for you, we'll be happy to have photos of your horse on the website!! :-)).

I totally understand thank you so much for explaining it to me. I will not tread on this subject again. I appreciate your understanding and tack.
