your location in all ads.
- When you email me the
text for your ad, I can copy and paste it quickly and easily
for you, if you can send it ready to go; here are a few
pointers to help you do that:
- Use exclamation marks
and capitalization correctly and sparingly. Lots of excitement
and attention-grabbing can quickly appear as over-compensation.
For example, "Fancy BROKE True Blue Roan Gelding!!!"
- So, please do not capitalize
non-proper nouns like the horse's color - or gender, etc;
- Please don't use all
capital letters; (on the internet that is the equivalent
of yelling at the reader). Any of which then means I have
to re-type your ad to post it.
- Same thing goes with
your grammar, spelling, punctuation etc. If you will remit
the free text ad ready to copy and paste, it saves us both
time. Watch spelling and word usage... Conformation is how
a horse is built (not confirmation, which is what i do for
you when I receive payment and post your ad) and remember
that offspring are SIRED BY a stallion, and OUT OF a mare
- and the male foals are colts, and female foals are fillies
--- and every dun dilute horse has the lineback and primitive
zebra markings (that goes without saying) etc.,... :o) (in
other words, be accurate as possible, and professional,
which keeps it pleasant for all).
- OH--except, all old salty
ranchers who know way more than I do about Hancock Horses,
are totally exempt from the above policies--so they can
yell at me all they want, and if they want to call it a
buckskin filly colt with barring on legs, shoulder and a
stripe down its back, by all means, you have earned that
right, do carry on.
- Free text ads are for
mares, geldings or youngstock, announcements, sales or public
auctions, or other items of interest to Hancock Horse owners.
- Free text ads go on the
classified ad page down the left column, except...
- Free text ads for stallions
for sale go under the photo ads on stallion directory page.
- Free text ads for stallion
stud service are not offered, because that service is covered
by members' free Breeder Directory listings.
- Free text ads should
be brief: 3-4 sentences at most.
- Free text ads may contain
your email address and phone, but no photos or website urls.
Please don't include your website link, promises of photos,
etc... that is reserved for paying photo ads, which means
I have to edit that out... which means...
- If I am short on time
when I receive a free text ad, and if I have to edit the
free ad, it may have to wait until I have more time to edit
it before it gets posted.
- We offer simple photo
ads, fancier display ads, or banner ads.
- Let me know if you
need a paid invoice receipt for taxes.
- You may run a paid ad
for whatever you expect to sell on this website.
- Email me with any paid
ad order, or combination of ads.
- Email the text you want
in your paid ad, and include all photos and additional design
elements you want to appear in that ad, in that same email.
- When ordering more than
one kind of paid ad, I can usually give a discount or a
free bonus feature.
- When I receive an
order for a paying ad, if I have any questions, I will send
you order verification. When the ad is made, posted &
approved by you, I will send you payment information.
- For payment you may
mail a check or pay online at your convenience. (Online
payments will usually have added transaction fees if using
ads are simple paid ads that may include website links, and
are charged per photo. Photo ads for stallions go on the stallion
directory page, and all other photo ads go on the classified
ads may be larger designed ads with multiple photos, logos,
brands, pedigrees or other elements. You can remit ready-made
display ads or you can send me the elements you want in the
ad and have me design it for you according to your specifications.
Display ads fit best at 450 to 500 dpi wide.
All stallion ads (paid and free) go on the Stallion Directory
page. Colts not of breeding age (prospects & youngstock)
go on the classifieds page. Stallion service ads may include
pedigrees. Stallion service ads run all year. Late ads placed
after the breeding season (July 1st or later) roll over to
include the entire following year. Stallion-for-sale photo
ads are priced the same as other photo ads; and may include
pedigree if run for a year. Free text ads are not offered
for stallion services or breeding operations. A free listing
in the main member Hancock Horse Breeder Directory already
does that. Stallions for sale, for lease, want ads, stolen,
and special situations for stallions qualify for free text

website and the Hancock Horse Breeders Directory. Please email

Notes to stallion owners: Internet advertising levels
the playing field for all stallion owners: Here, your
horse is found by more people, and is judged on his
own merits, not your pocketbook. Instead of spending
thousands of dollars targeting limited audiences in
a printed magazine that has a 30 day shelf life - consider
online advertising. With the internet, mare owners are
no longer as likely to look through stacks of old magazines
or breed newspapers to find outdated ads. Mare owners
will not find your ad quickly if it is several days
since you posted him on Facebook pages with high traffic.
Mare owners want to see current information on your
stallion now. They want to see breeding animals tastefully
presented with current photographs & detailed information.
Get the best advertising value: For the lowest price
possible, we will present your stallion to the widest
audience possible - an audience that is already looking
for your Hancock bloodline stallion.
Our ad placement policy: This is a
answer to several inquiries. Ads do come in randomly.
Expect them to post as received. Stallion Directory
ads may be listed alphabetically by state some years.
We don't play favorites. The only way to make sure you
are at the top would be to buy a banner for the top
of the page... Horse sale sites don't rotate ads...
the freshest ones are usually at the top of the page.
Feature ads that appear in special spots cost a lot
more. We don't consider our classifieds or stallion
directory page to be so large as to need special spots.
We think in this market... everyone is feeling the pinch...
if there are less breeding inquiries... We think it
is just a sign of the times, not where an ad is placed
on a webpage.
cute little ad was featured in the
Western Livestock Reporter years ago
your ad receipts are proof to the IRS
that you are running a business
FOR SALE: Blue Roan Stallion [SOLD]
AQHA Coal Smooth Cash
is a 14 year old blue roan stud. My boss bought this horse 5
years ago with the intention of breeding some mares. His business
picked up so the mares never got bought. He is tired of looking
at him as a pasture ornament, he would rather have black cows
(go figure). With Blue Valentine, Gooseberry, and Dash for Cash
on his papers, he could still provide someone with some beautiful
well bred babies. If you need any additional information please
call me at (903) 576-4498. Price reduced, boss wants him sold.
Every once in a while, I run
across an ad somewhere on Craigslist or Facebook, that I feel
belongs here. Just for the sake of networking. This older
ad above, was one of those times. Here's what happened next:
October 13, 2012 9:35 PM
"You have this Stallion listed for sale on your Stallion
page. I purchased him from the seller on September 10th of
this year and wanted to let you know you may remove him as
being for sale. I'm not sure how he ended up on your site
for sale as the seller did not list him here but I am glad
you did because that is how I found him. This stud is a special
case. He has been in my family since he was born. My cousin
bred and raised him from birth then sold him as a 9 year old
to our Vet for breeding. This was all before I actually met
my cousin. Our Vet in turn sold him to the man I purchased
him from and he owned him for 5 years but did not breed him.
I found him on your site and was so happy to be able to bring
him back into our family again. He will be a great asset to
our breeding program and will never leave the family again.
Thank you again for posting him on your site!! Best Regards,"
Michelle Yates, AM PM Ranch
Hats off to our readers: THANK YOU for your support !
guys! I've been meaning to tell you, we can pull the ad down
for Claytons Romeo Drift. We sold him thanks to your site,
we had LOTS of calls thanks to this ad. Thanks for providing
this service." Brett Spader DV Auction (Dec 2013)
"When I was deciding to change the bloodlines of my breeding
program, your website was invaluable and key to the switch."
Lisa, Breezy Hill Farm (Nov 2013)
"Rode a horse today that didn't have one ounce of Joe
Hancock blood in him. First one in years that I know of. Guess
we got the cows found and pairs sorted off and still got the
job done. Tomorrow I will take out my 4 year old that goes
back to Joe about 8 times and only has about 12 rides. Betting
I will get as much work done as I did today on this 11 year
old gelding." ~ Neil Whitmer (Oct 2013)
"I really like your website. It makes me not want any
other Quarter Horse out there!" ~ Melony Almind, CA (Jan
"Gotta tell you, still getting more hits from HH than
anywhere else. Keep up the good work, girls." Joel, Promised
Land Ranch (August 2011)
" Donna; My recent conversation with Randy Wright caused
me to think about you and Michelle the last couple of days.
Honest and sincere folks are getting harder to come by in
our sector of the horse world!" ~ John Gist, Wagon Wheel
Ranch, TX (June 2011)
"Holy cow, did I get a TON of response from the ad you
placed for me! I have sold all the mares, including their
fillies and two that were not even listed! I now only have
one mare from this group left... Thanks again! You guys rock!"
Carrie, C Lazy T Performance Horses (Jan 2011)
"Michelle and Donna Grace are both great ladies and have
done more to help preserve and promote the Hancock genetics
than anyone, other than Fred Gist when he was alive. If they
can help, they will go out of their way to assist you; you
have no idea how much they have done for many, many people
and love being able to." Randy, Wright Cattle Co., TX
"Just a couple of things. First of all, the Hancock Horse
website works. Your classified ads work. The horse market
is absolutely dead here in our area. Advertising in our area
(even in the best advertising venues in the whole state),
I wouldn't have hardly been able to give my horses away. But
in response to my ad on Hancock Horses, I got a number of
good solid calls and inquiries from around the country. And
yesterday, I had a guy come pick up a load of horses and pay
me a fair (in light of market conditions) price for them.
All thanks to the ad and your website. Thanks for doing it
and making it available." ~ Todd Macfarlane, UT (Autumn
"Thanks for the contact and WOW has the site grown. I
have to tell you what a good job you guys do and that I get
calls from the site off and on all year long." ~ Leslie,
Merrill Ranch, SD
"I love your Hancocks breeders page, it is a brilliant idea."
~ Rodolfo Valenzuela
"I just wanted to say I really enjoy your website and
all the hard work and info you've put into it. I look at it
daily and have found a couple REALLY good horses because of
it over the past 3 years since i'v found it. Thanks!"
~ Travis Starr, Stillwell, OK
"I want to tell you how much I enjoy this website - I get
on sometimes and spend hours reading! We frequently refer
people to this site to learn about Hancocks. We are the only
folks in our area who own these awesome horses so people always
have a lot of questions about them." ~ Tammy, TN
"Here is the ad I would like to have placed on your website.
I found the site because of the article in America's Horse
magazine and was excited to do so. It is a great resource
for Hancock breeders." ~ Kate
"Thanks for all you and your partner do in making and keeping
this website going. I use it almost everyday and would be
lost without it. Thanks again,"
~ Andy Reed, Coburn Creek Quarter Horses
"...the only place I go to look for Hancocks... no need to
waste time anywhere else."
"HancockHorses.com generates more hits to our site than any
$1200 full page magazine ad." Jennifer, Coyote Ridge Roans
"Thank You !!!!!!!!!!!! ~ Hi Gals, I just wanted to send you
a special THANK YOU for all the work you have done on the
Hancock site. It is a privilege as a breeder to be on such
a wonderful site. Just a thought, have you gals ever thought
of putting all this info into a book? If you ever do, we want
first in line for it! Thank you both sooooo much," Bill &
Cindy Smith L & S Q.H's
that idea has been brought up before, and after much discussion,
we feel that due to the nature & cost of printed material,
a book would be outdated too quickly to make it worth publishing.
"Oh just FYI
I sold a nice high dollar stud colt to
a super fella in Oregon who stumbled upon us through your
site thus the push to advertise with you more
just doesnt know whats working until it comes
to their attention so THANK you for your site!" LM
"Donna, I just purchased a 3 year old, Blue Valentine, Happy
Hancock, Doc Bar gelding, and then I read your story in the
America's Horse Magazine... I just want to thank you and Michelle
for your hard work and dedication to the Hancock bloodline,
and to let you know, your work is appreciated... God Bless
you Both" ~ Sincerely, Brad, Idaho
"Now, here's the good news. I don't know when you put this
[ad] up and modified it, etc. But I had three emails already.
Can you believe it?"
"Thanks for maintaining such a great website. I check it regularly
and am excited to see all of the new people listed every month."
"I'd like to compliment you on your work on the Hancock Horses
website. It is absoulutely great, I have learned a great deal
and really enjoyed the pictures of old horses and the historical
articles." WA State Rep. Joel Kretz, R-Wauconda
"Keep up the good work, people like you are really helping
the Hancock breeding programs."
"I would like to thank you for your website and the hits I
am receiving because of it, and the info it provides."
"I get more (website traffic) coming from hancockhorses.com
than any other"
"I am just enthralled with the site -- it is an all-encompassing
site for Hancocks and SO WELL DONE! Hancock and Blue Valentine
breeders everywhere owe you a lot for your hard work and dedication
on their behalf. The newsletter and site is SO CLASSY!" ~
"The hancockhorses.com site has been good for a lot of people."
"WOW! What great information you have on there. This is become
THE Hancock website -- choc full of information; I love all
the stories about different get of JH (Joe Hancock)."
"You two are doing a superb job!!"
