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!

    And from what I can see these guys look nice! I do not know the owner other than the brief conversation I just had, and there is an email going around Maryland that may or may not go viral here soon, but figured I'd post here for more exposure for her, as she's not really tech savvie.

    Flashing Fox: (Majestic Linda x Dawn Quixote) Reg. but unbroken...Bright red chestnut with lots of chrome... 8 yrs. old 15.2 h TB gelding.... EZ keeper....Very QH-like.... Broken to tack....Last summer he learned Monty Roberts' principles of 'Join-Up', but he did not get 'backed' (due to no help).... Foxy would make great show hunter, event, trail or endurance, field hunter or even play polo!

    Big Brown Storm (Garnet Mine x Parker's Storm Cat) Not registered & unbroken....3 yrs. old 15.3 h TB colt....Striking dappled black bay with blaze face & sox.... Floaty mover....Brownie can learn any discipline....Still time to get to the races, but $1500 stud fee must be paid to Country Life Farm to register him....(All due to lack of funds)....Bred to run.... His dam produces winners!

    Warriorinthestorm (Sophisticatedstorm x No Armistice) Reg., but Fasig-Tipton holds his papers & can be redeemed for prox. $1078....Unbroken....4 yrs. old 15.2h. TB colt....Cute dk. dappled bay.... Very floaty mover with speed.... Still time to get to the races, but Warrior can learn any discipline.... Ideal size to be a super endurance horse....If left a stud, would be a great large hunter pony cross sire or even a polo pony sire.... Speed & stamina & smarts!

    Johnny My Angel (Sophisticatedstorm x Unbridled Jet) 5 yrs. old 16.1 h. unbroken ridgeling.... (One testicle is down...Possibility of putting him on ground tranqued for vet to pull other one down to geld him.) Reg....Johnny has the most gleaming dappled mahogany bay coat you will ever see! Floaty mover....Would make a pet hack & be your best buddy!

    Moonie (Sophisticatedstorm x No Armistice) 3 yrs. old 15 h. copper chestnut filly with a moon on her face....Verrry cute & a floaty mover....Unbroken & not reg....Moonie would make a pretty small hunter or small dressage or event horse, or even trail & endurance....Moonie's sweet!

    Secret Moon (Reg. name: Risky's Reflection) 7 yrs. old 15.2 h. rose gray mare.... Very pretty, kind & sane....EZ keeper QH type....Broken by A-level event rider....Ran one time at Laurel.... Has hacked at home in paddock.... Secret can do anything!

    Queen in the Moon (Garnet Mine x Commitisize) 8 yrs. old 16.1 h. black bay mare with blaze face & sox....Good looking, floaty mover & very athletic....Broken by same A-level eventer as Secret....Won two races at Laurel & some checks, but we ran out of money.... Queenie has many races left in her & was a happy racehorse, but is a 'quick study' & will be a STAR doing anything....Jumping, eventing, dressage, fox chase, steeplechase, you name it!

    Cloudy Moon (Reg. name: Cloudy Afternoon) Early teens 16.3 h. freckled gray mare....Won 1 race at Colonial Downs & some checks.... Very kind, sane & steady....A few years ago hacked her all over our neighborhood with company....Teach Cloudy to jump & she'll make a super fox chaser or eventer!

    Photos are available on facebook but I can't get ONTO facebook from here to link them. Search FB for "Mary Gale" - the one with the two horse's faces as profile picture. There is an album on there with pics of the horses (but can't really tell who is who yet)

    The horses look nice and in good shape, the owner is just desperate to find them homes due to hitting some rough times. This is a very sweet lady who needs a helping hand and if you're at all interested, please call. I know that someone is probably going to be picking up 2-3 horses on Sunday, but that still leaves a bunch more. If you are in the area and have some time to help and a little room, these guys certainly need the help.

    Owner is Mary Gale, her cell phone # is 410-808-3230

    This is very time sensitive, so anyone who can help, please consider it!

    I've seen these horses in person and they are all very sweet and friendly. If you are looking for a project - they are worth a look.

      I just read about this today and found a Facebook link to their pics:
      Equus Keepus Brokus


      • Original Poster

        Looks like two of these (at least) have found homes, not 100% but I believe it's the first two on the list, Flashing Fox and Big Brown Storm.

          Interesting update on the ABR forum thread:
          Equus Keepus Brokus


          • Original Poster

            Tentative homes lined up for two more (one of the bay boys, and the younger of the two grey mares).

            I'll be calling the owner a bit later, or tomorrow, to see how she's doing and to verify all that, as I'm getting info a bit secondhand.
