Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services – Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products – While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

          LOL I know exactly what you mean! He should mature to 17H or so. He's quite tall already.... 16.1 and only 2 and a half. If you mare has just one copy of the gray gene, you could get black, bay, or chestnut and a 50% chance that any of those colors will go gray. If she has two copies of the black gene then you can get black or bay with a 50% chance of gray. If she has two copies of the gray gene then you'll get gray... no matter what color the foal starts out as. What color were the mares parents? That will help.

          Also...............

          I just got news that mare number two has been checked and is also in foal! Three more mares are left to be checked.... and a few owners are still waiting for their mares to cycle.
          There is quite a bit of collecting going on right now, so last minute shipping is no big deal. If you notice your mare in and would like to give it a try, feel free to contact us! There are only a couple weeks left.......

              I think if he reaches 17, that will be perfect. Enough size for the 16H mare, and not to much for the 17+H mares. We will see though. His sire is 16.2.... and has a fantastic temperament that he consistently reproduces. His owner has been running some really good specials now and then, you should take a look at him!

                Embrace approved for breeding by Oldenburg NA

                Hello everyone! Remember this crazy thread? Well, I have an exciting up-date!!

                I am VERY proud to announce that Embrace was presented to the Oldenburg NA for his initial stallion inspection on Friday, and was AMAZING! Embrace scored a total of 225 points, which qualified him for his first *STAR*!!!! He was the second highest scoring stallion (by 2 points) and earned a 92.5 total jumping index (WOW!!) He even received a 9.5 for capability! In their opening statements, the inspectors referred to him as the "Zeus clone"... which is a _fantastic_ compliment.
                He is just a three year old this year, so he will be going to his stallion test to (hopefully) earn his lifetime license when he is a four year old, however... the foals that were conceived last year are eligible to be inspected and registered this year.

                  Congratulations!

                  I absolutely DO remember this thread the bit of drama that attached itself to it.
                  What a wonderful way to exhibit "putting your money where your mouth is"(I'll bet the critic is nowhere to be found). Big Congratulations and best of luck! Hope to see some baby pictures!

                    I LOVE foals.... I only have one coming by Embrace though. One of his "free breedings" has already produced a beautiful filly (out of a Consul mare) The owner is very excited to take her filly to the inspection, and I'm sure she'll share pictures. I'm looking forward to seeing how that foal moves when she's a bit older... but what I can see already is a mostly solid chestnut mare with a filly beside her that looks dipped to her knees in chrome! Unfortunately, one stocking doesn't make it all the way up, but all-in-all, she's a very fancy filly!
                    Its hard to get late foals to the inspections, so we'll see how many make it this year. I'm just happy that Embrace was presented before to many foals hit the ground... he had several mares this spring, so there will be a good crop next year!
                    We took some video at the stallion inspection, and I'm sure the pro photographer will have pic.s up soon... but in the mean time... here is my home-made video, if you would like to see him now!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VsR9VQeJQ8Q !

                      Wow, totally wish I had my mare this time last year. I'm not actually planning to breed anything anytime soon, but what a nice looking stallion (and the inspectors obviously thought so too ).

                      Good luck with the babies and the stallion testing.

                          ***Update*** Embrace has completed the 70day test and now lifetime licensed with the Oldenburg Na, and impressed a few other registries (TBA) as well. You'll be able to see pictures and video soon on HuntersCourt.com if you are curious!
