Please note, These are rough guide,

:bulletpurple:Please comment on the journal to the right (or note us/rhinebeck with any/all suggestions

:bulletred: ONLY horse related artwork

:bulletgreen:Photomanips: we welcome all levels, though it is expected that there is editing done to the image to actually manipulate it - not just cutting a horse and placing it on a background.

:bulletgreen:Credits: should be in the description, if a photomanip the background/horse and other elements should all be listed with where they came from, preferably with links to the original image, although not required. The stockholder alone will be enough.

:bulletpurple:PLEASE any suggestions post them or note us/rhinebeck with them or post them on the journal to the right!

We will be checking for Credits to stock holders and stock holder rules.

This means if you do not have credits in the description (which is already a group rule -points to the left-) it will be declined for that reason.

IF YOU already have credits, we will check the stock holders rule - you are making monetary gain off of these auctions! If it appears you are breaking a rule by a stock holder, your image will be held PENDING hearing from that stock holder.  This means that yes, we will be notifying stock holders of your image with how their stock is being used.  If we get the "Oh they have permission" or the "I don't mind my stock used that way" from ALL the stock holders that you have used.  Then we will accept your image, if not then it will be declined.

This goes for Photomanipulations, Linearts, Characters, anything that is a "YHH" auction or "YCH" auction, or any auction involving stock images.

If you have purchased the stock for use we will note you requesting proof only because we respect stock holders; you however do not need to provide us with the amount you paid, just proof that it was paid for and from where.

Being founded by one we want to keep the integrity of all stock holders rules, we want to keep stock holders out there for all of us to use.  Many have stopped providing stock in recent years or locked up their accounts to pay only due to people breaking their rules.  Please keep this in mind.

If you like the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic style this artist does an absolutely beautiful job. I believe she does original characters as well. c:WhiteDove-Creations

And then this artist does more beanie baby type MLP style plushies. Again I believe she does original characters but I'm not positive! c: ButtercupBabyPPG
