Forum Rules

  1. Mind your manners! You don't have to be perfect, but you do have to be polite. If you can't help in a scenario then just scroll on bye.

  2. Keep it PG. We have farmers as young as 10 on this page and we ask that you please keep your posts to a PG rating. That means no swearing and no graphic sex. We know all animals are already nude.

  3. Selling of animals that are of an agriculture nature is perfectly ok on here. Fiber animals, meat animals, egg laying animals, working breeds, etc. Lineage is appriciated and disclosure of line breeding is also appriciated. Basically, be as detailed about what you are selling as possible.

  4. Photoshopping photos is allowed, but highly discouraged. If you are here to sell a product or an animal, please do your best to keep the photo original and have a great description. We don't want someone photoshopping a horn on their horse and trying to claim they have the one and only unicorn for sale.

  5. If you don't know what gender an animal you have for sale is, then please let folks know that the animals are straight run or you do not know the gender. We TOTALLY understand how hard it can be to tell with some creatures and we will always be as up front as possible and we would like you to do the same.

  6. Your stuff is your stuff and other peoples stuff is their stuff. We ask that you remember that photos belong to the Orignal Poster (OP) of those photos and you are not permitted to share them or meme them without asking the owner of that photo.

  7. NO SPAM!!! All automated messages, advertisements, and links to competitor websites will be deleted.

  8. Keep it relevant. We have done the work of creating sub categories so that you can get the best answers and sales possible. So remember to look for the title closest to what you are trying to do.

  9. No Illegal Stuff. Don't sell things that don't belong to you. If what you are trying to sell is not legal federally, don't post it. All in all, just try to be a good human.

  10. If you want to make your personal information available in a post so that people can contact you, you take full responsibility for that information being public. We can not control what the world does.

  11. If you have a problem with another poster, please shoot us an email at I can not promise that we will make the problem go away, but I can promise that we will look into it as soon as possible. If your problem involves theft, plese contact your local athorities. If you or your immediate family are the problem, we highly recommend therapy or a local moderator.
