Introduction to the Search Tool (Under Construction by Follies)

Scope: first-week tutorial on how to use basic search functions

The default sorting order for search results is by ID number.

1. Key Filters tab

  • Name: search by the horse's name. Example: "Spot"
    • Like: Returns all horses with names that include the letters S-P-O-T in consecutive order; in addition to Spot, you will get results such as Spotted, Spots, Spotless, Fusspot, Sunspot, etc. (There are 37 pages of them at the time of this writing.)
    • Not Like: Returns all horses with names that do NOT include the letters S-P-O-T in consecutive order. Without additional search parameters, finding what you want is impossible. (There are 33,197 pages of them at the time of this writing.)
  • Status: search horses by their status.
    • For Sale: If this is the only box checked, search returns all horses currently listed for public sale.
    • For Auction: If this is the only box checked, search returns all horses currently listed in the auction.
    • For Breeding: If this is the only box checked, search returns all horses currently listed for public breeding.
    • HAJ Ambassador: If this is the only box checked, search returns all horses which have been selected as HAJ Ambassadors. (What is an ambassador?)
    • And: Can be used with any combination of boxes checked above. Checking the box For Breeding AND HAJ Ambassador will return any horses who are currently listed for public breeding, and which have been selected as HAJ Ambassadors.
    • Or: Can be used with any combination of boxes checked above. Checking the box For Breeding OR HAJ Ambassador will return all horses who are currently listed for public breeding and all horses which have been selected as HAJ Ambassadors.
  • Age: search by horse's age. 
    • Older than: If this is the only field filled in, returns all horses older than entered value. (i.e. all horses older than 6 years)
    • Younger than: If this is the only field filled in, returns all horses younger than entered value. (i.e. all horses younger than 6 years)
    • Equal to: If this is the only field filled in, returns all horses equal to entered value. (i.e. all horses exactly 6 years old)
    • Age range: To return a search of mares of breedable age (4-19 years), you would search for horses older than three and yournger than 20. (Enter "3" in the "Older Than" field and enter "20" in the "Younger Than" field. Don't forget to filter for gender.)
