Help, Hints, Tips and Rules for posting

Posting your Miniature horse and Shetland pony sales on our boards. First Some QUICK TIPS...

PERSONAL ADS ONLY - Lil Beginnings Miniature Horses reserves the right to remove any ads that we feel are inappropriate and it is to be used for personal ads only. Only mini horses and Shetland ponies you own and/or are registered in YOUR NAME can be posted  by you. PLEASE DO NOT PLACE ADS FOR OTHER PEOPLE! All second-party ads , unless arrangements have been made with us - see "listing agents" below, will be removed. This is Strictly enforced. Also any free sale board ads or paid banner ads directing to auction listings (other than The Little Horse Barn Auction), special sales, other public message boards, multi-party sales lists, agent listings and "like" commercial web-site promotions or Websites are not permitted. Auction sales and announcements, see below, require a fee to post.

You may post 1 ONE free ad every 11 days (Ads are up 10 days) Combine your horses and/or mini horse/pony items for sale into one ad. 

Please do NOT put your EMAIL, PHONE, OR ANY WEB ADDRESS in the descriptive text of your advert. Please put it only where indicated. If added there it will be removed.
No personal contact information or links to any pages are to be put into the body of your advert. This information is to be added only where specified.

DURATION OF ADS - Ads are up for 10 days.. Do not post more than one personal ad within 11 days . Please post your next ad. on day 11 after NOON, I have noticed that sometimes the board does not purge the ads until noon. Paid Feature Ads run 30 days AND you may still run a free ad. every 11 days while it runs. note: Our Miniature Horse Farm Directory members enjoy FREE Feature ads.!

COMMERCIAL TACK & ? COMPANY ADS - Our Commercial Directory Members who sponsor this site are encouraged to post! Your first ad. will be Featured for 30 days (you may also post additional free ads while your featured ad is running) or purchase a Banner Ad to advertise more frequently and get more exposure.

*NOTE There is NO category to sell trailers on our boards. ALL trailer ads must be approved BEFORE posting and will require a fee to post -No exceptions.  If you personally own a Miniature Horse trailer and want to list it --- You must have a horse or tack for sale under the appropriate category then you may add a small mention of your trailer at the end of your ad, You cannot post it alone nor highlight it within the ad. The ad. must focus on being a for sale ad. for a appropriately categorized item.
Our Paid Farm Directory Members MAY post their personally owned miniature horse trailer alone.
Otherwise ALL trailer ads must be approved BEFORE posting and will require a fee to post -No exceptions.

No soliciting transport. All equine transport queries, requests for quotes, and/or solicitations to transport belong on our Transport board ONLY. UNLESS you provide Free delivery for horses in your name that you have for sale. If you charge a fee for any horse on the trailer use the transport board only.

A few quick tips about compiling and posting.

1. - MAKE COPY OF YOUR AD -  It's easiest and faster for you to Type out your ad first in MS Word, e-mail or some other text editor program or text file first - save it - then post your ad. (your password sign-in times out after so long) Have your urls ready to insert -The more photos the better! or have your 2 photos you are allowed to upload ready.

2.  *YOUR CONTACT / EMAIL ADDRESS - !! DO NOT PUT YOUR EMAIL, PHONE, OR WEB ADDRESS IN THE DESCRIPTIVE TEXT OF YOUR AD. PUT IT ONLY WHERE INDICATED. NOT putting  your email address in the body of your ad. (making it visible in your descriptive text on the main sale board page) makes it less likely that you will receive spam replies. The reason being; spam bots or other automated programs that harvest contact information including email addresses and phone numbers are very unlikely to click on the "click here for more details" link on the main page to get your email address and phone. This is a security measure.

3.  IMAGES   Images you add to the main body of your sale board ad will show up with the word "Picture" on the main page.. People who view our sales boards main page have to click on "CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS" to see your full ad with pictures and to get your contact information. These are the ads that get the most interest!! these ads generate a lot of click through to see your horses or items for sale as well as your contact information.
      - No remote linking of photos from ANY website that requires people to sign up to be able to see them, click here for more info. about this.

4. - IMAGE URL box - THIS IS OPTIONAL.  this image must be hosted elsewhere, like your personal Website or a photo storage site. You will add the url of your chosen image in this box.  If image is very large in bytes, the system will not accept it to post on main sale board page (top left below title). ALSO some sites do not allow remote linking of the image (it steals bandwidth). See info below on "How to find your Image URL" if you'd like to use this feature.

5. NO SYMBOLS - Ad will not post if you use symbols in title and body of ad - @#%^&*[>} <<< This causes security issues.

IMPORTANT - Please Note

I know this looks like a lot of information & rules, but the Sale Board is very popular and not very fun to host if people abuse it.  To keep this board running smoothly and to be considerate to others that are placing/reading ads, please read this. 

DURATION OF ADS - Ads are up for 10 days.. Do not post more than one personal ad within 11 days. Try to post your next ad. on day 11 after NOON, I have noticed that sometimes the board does not purge the ads until noon. Also Just because you ask to DELETE your old ad does not allow you to post the same ad again 2 to 3 days later!

COMBINE AD ITEMS - Combine all your horse/item ads into ONE single ad. You may post 1 ONE ad. per every 11 days. It is not fair to bump ads to the next page because of multiple listings from one farm. Please be considerate to others that use this site. If we see people hogging the sale board with multi ads, we will delete them, do it again and you may be banned.

PERSONAL ADS ONLY - Lil Beginnings Miniature Horses reserves the right to remove any ads that we feel are inappropriate and it is to be used for personal ads only. Only horses you own and/or are registered in YOUR NAME can be posted. PLEASE DO NOT PLACE ADS FOR OTHER PEOPLE! All second-party ads , unless arrangements have been made with us - see "listing agents" below, will be removed. This is Strictly enforced. Also any free sale board ads or paid banner ads directing to auction listings (other than The Little Horse Barn Auction),  other public message boards, multi-party sales lists, agent listings and "like" commercial web-site promotions or Websites are not permitted.

Our Paid Directory Members may post their personally owned miniature horse trailer alone.
Otherwise ALL trailer ads must be approved BEFORE posting and will require a fee to post -No exceptions.

*No remote linking of photos from ANY website that requires people to sign up to be able to see them...such as galleries and accounts that are not set to "public" on Facebook.  IF your photo gallery on your Facebook Page or personal account is completely set to PUBLIC, you MAY remote link your photos.
If the photos cannot be seen unless logged in, you cannot post them on this board and your entire post will be deleted. There are people who do not have, nor who want to have, a presence there and won't open an account or login specifically to see your horses or tack for sale. If you are using only that venue to promote your horses you are limiting your audience. Please post your photos to public accessible galleries, your own Website, or a photo storage site so you can show them on the sales board. We want people to see your photos!!  you can directly upload 2 photos here if you cannot remote link.

Do you transport horses? Do you need a Mini Horse Transported? Click here to post on our Transport board. No soliciting transport on our personal sale boards.. All equine transport queries, requests for quotes, and/or solicitations to transport belong on our Transport board ONLY. UNLESS you provide Free delivery for horses in your name that you have for sale. If you charge a fee for any horse on the trailer use the transport board only.

If you wish assistance in commercial promotions, please e-mail us. Please see Agent Listings & Auction/Sales Announcements exception below.

AUCTIONS & SALES ANNOUNCEMENTS - LB Miniature Horse Sale Boards are designed for personal sales only. See these options to advertise public Sales, multi party sales, & Auctions ON THIS PAGE.

SIZE OF PHOTOS - Ads that cause problems because pictures are too wide, will be removed.

BAD SCRIPTSSometimes bad script codes (by trying to post pictures and links) cause total shutdown of people's web-browsers. Should I be aware of a bad script causing a problem, I will remove the message from the sale board.  We will NOT notify the owner of the bad script post, so if you notice you have a message missing, it is because of web-browser conflicts (or possibly not following our sale board rules). Please post your message again with the proper script. 

DISCLAIMER - Lil Beginnings Miniature Horses is not responsible for any sales, losses or misrepresented ads made through our Sale Board (also see Lil Beginnings web-site policy below **).

OTHER PROBLEMS??? - The sale board is monitored on a daily basis and we most likely know when it goes down or has problems. If you have problems with understanding the photo instructions on this page, then perhaps it is to far advanced for you at this time. It is suggest that you have a knowledgeable friend show you personally how to do it or you may want to consider taking a basic computer coarse. Don't let all the instructions intimidate you it is really easy! you can do it! Please do not e-mail me asking for assistance in posting pictures on the sale board.
