Ad Submission Instructions

  • When ordering an ad, email it to me at donna@hancockhorses.com.
  • Include 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:

  • 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.

 

Paid Ads

  • 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 Paypal, etc.)

 

Photo Ads. Photo 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 ad page.

Display Ads. Display 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.

Stallion Directory Ads. 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 ads.

Sponsorship Banner Ads. Revolving banners go at the top of the main homepage HancockHorses.com, and at the top of the classified ad page. Banner ads can be purchased for any ranch, stallion, product or service. Banner size must be H:100 pixels x W:750 pixels.

Payment: Mail check or MO made to Donna G Vickery, email me for my mailing address. Or you can pay it online at Paypal.com to donna@hancockhorses.com (it will walk you through the process). Please include and add the transaction fee when ordering online.

To submit an ad: you can snail mail it, or email it to me. When you email photo ads, the picture should be attached as a .jpg to your email that has the text of the ad in the body. Please read all instructions on this page before submitting; it will save us both time.

THANK YOU for your interest and support in our services. Ads allow us to maintain this website and the Hancock Horse Breeders Directory. Please email with any questions, comments, suggestions or concerns at any time. Your satisfaction is our most important goal.

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
general 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.

Coal Smooth Cash
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. Longview TX

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:

Saturday, 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 !

"Hello 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 2012)

"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 (Dec 2010)

"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 2010)

"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

actually 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… a person just doesn’t know what’s 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." Jim Willingham

"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!" ~ Baru

"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!!"

"Thanks for all you have done with the Hancock Pages. We have gotten a lot of inquiries from there."

Want to innoculate your teenager against lunacy? There’s a myth in America that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and all opinions carry equal weight. But that’s not true.

Liberty Classroom ensures your mastery of the unvarnished truth so you can defend your ideas with clarity, accuracy, and rock-solid logic. The distortions and omissions of the political, media, and academic establishments have gone on for a very long time. Liberty Classroom offers a unique opportunity to learn the finer points of non-partisan knowledge and thought from scholars, teachers, writers, and thinkers committed to the truth.

We answer to no one other than you, our members, when it comes to our policies and how we administer them.

In certain situations, I may handle one case differently from another case.

So. Michelle and I will continue to administer our policies as we see fit, and to accept, edit, and/or refuse any ads or submissions.
