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!

  • TBs (and more) - WV (near charles town)

    Hello all! I am working on getting more information but wanted to get this posted ASAP. We have a trainer who needs some serious help finding homes for her horses - this is one of those "life throwing major curveballs" situations, and she's doing the best she can but we need to get some of these horses moved as soon as possible.

    Right now, this is the information I have:
    • Ten Broodmares, aged 7 - 17.
    • Three 2 yr old colts (just turned 2 by JC rules)
    • One 2 yr old filly.
    (The two year olds are all by "Dance Dude" )
    • 1 gelding of racing age who is not sound - no details at the moment
    • Small Arabian pony (13 hands?) who requires an advanced rider
    • 2 grade horses/not broke
    If you are at all interested in a horse, or even in helping out (we are trying to help her with hay, etc, in the meantime) please email me at kelly.utter@gmail.com

    The only photo at the moment is of the colts

      Ages or pics of the broodmares? And can they be ridden or young enough to start a new riding career? I am in the market for a mare.

        Like I said, this is *all* the information I have right now I will post more as I learn more. From what I know some of the mares are young enough for riding careers (7-10 yrs old) but may not have had any retraining since retiring from racing. I don't know anything about if they're sound or any other issues they might have.

        I will PM you some contact information if you'd like, I'm still waiting for more information from her

            Do you know when you will be able to get more? It would help to know if the colts are registered and what mares they are out of.
            Thanks for doing this and helping out.
            I will try and remember to check back on this thread. If not somebody PM me if more info is posted. I may be able to help with the colts.

                Do you happen to know the names of the dams?

                Even if the young ones aren't registered, Dance Dude has Damascus for his damsire, and that is extremely positive for sport. Rest of his damline is exquisite for eventing. Round Table is a very strong influence for soundness, and he was the best son of Princequillo. Juliet's Nurse was close to a blue hen mare, and she is in the tail female line of the very fine eventing stallion in Ireland, Cult Hero. Bolero was in the lines of show jumpers and hunters whose pedigrees are found in my Dr. Birdsall, and he's comparatively close. Shy Bim was a daughter of Bimelech (Black Toney x La Troienne), and she has been a nice line. Her other daughter besides Shy Dancer who shows up a lot in my pedigree research is Lady Dulcinea The root of the tail female line in America is Cinderella, who was the dam of Plaudit and of Hastings, sire of Fair Play. There has been some speculation that the Hastings temperament came from her, and it was most visible in males. Cinderella was born in 1885, so there has been plenty of time for the temperament to have been well diluted through generations of daughters.

                    Names of the mare and their pedigree will help us get them homes. If they are valuable bloodlines they may find a spot in the sport lines or back on another TB farm. We'll also be able to see if the mares have had any other foals and proper ages.

                      For those asking her to post all the details...in one of her posts above she requests a PM and then she will send it to the requester. If you are really interested you should do that.

                      She also does not look to be much of a typer so it may be a chore for her to do a long post with all the info everyone always wants to have. Her life curveball may also make this difficult. Might not have a lot of time to be on a computer.

                      Caffeinated, can you post the info for her? Minimum the Dam and Sire names of each horse

What do people expect? They are mares and x race horses and have been out for few years.I am just really overwhelmed with them.
                            I can tell you I DID get a PM (in response to my own) & there are a couple very interesting mares, if you re breeding for the track. (And some might be nice as sporthorses - I've heard other COTHERs who were looking for these exact bloodlines.)

                            Slamming the poster for what you perceive as slow responses doesn't help - I can tell you from experience, if you have ever suddenly had more horses than you'd planned to feed . . . you're dancin' as fast as you can to just keep up, much less respond to PMs - and public criticism.

                              I agree with the previous poster, but...instead of answering to many PM or email inquires...

                              wouldn't it be easier to post a full list of each horse with needed stats (age, breeding, height, ect) to save sometime. type it once instead of multiple times.

                              I feel for the person in this situation and feel very sorry for her. With the tough economy it makes our love for our horses even more difficult.

                                  To those that asked about pedigrees... I added the following horses for Coco to Allbreedpedigree.com. Cause I WILL provide a home for some of these girls, but it would be a only a breeding home offer with me. Sounds like these horses have more promise then just being mommies.

                                      Is it possible to get ages listed with each mare?

                                        I thought I would help Coco out some:

                                        Ages:

                                        Lady win win is 10
                                        Prized memories is 7
                                        Mount Ararat is also 7
                                        Lady's basket is 14
