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!

  • Mid-Atlantic Horse Rescue: TB mares need homes by 1/31 or will be euth'd - MD

    Mid-Atlantic Horse Rescue is assisting in the urgent placement of several TB broodmares in Westminster, MD.

    Please do NOT contact me, I'm not involved in any way, just crossposting. Contact info is at the link.

    You TB pedigree geeks *really* might want to investigate Go Rose. That's a sport horse pedigree we will NOT be seeing again in our lifetime!

    UPDATE: Bev from Mid-Atlantic was kind enough to update me. The listing on the page at the link is current in terms of placements. These lovely mares will be euthanized on 1/31 if homes are not found.

    I asked specifically about Go Rose, the mare w/ the phenomenal pedigree. She is sound, still available, and has never been bred. I'm not a breeder so I did not inquire whether they are placing breeding restrictions on her. I'd give anything to take her but I'm on a strictly one-horse budget!

        Bump - and if anybody can help w/ transport, I think I've found a none-better home for Go Rose with a COTHer in Nashville. She's e-mailing Bev now but knows her truck won't make it to MD - so if you happen to be coming south any time soon, please holla back!!

          What is phenomenal about her pedigree? I got my horse from the same farm and they share the same sire. His registered name is Yoh Zachary.

          Go Rose looks/is built allmost exactly like him except he has a blaze. Anyone can see the pics I posted of his before and after photos to see what she could turn into. He is even in better shape now.

          I really wish I could take Sweet Lil Lolly!

            Sweet Lil Lolly has the second best sport pedigree of the lot IMO.

            Shrpshooter I assume you've now seen Vineyridge's excellent redux of Go Rose's pedigree on SHB. They DO. NOT. MAKE. horses like that any more. EVERY major sport horse line is in that mare, and old blood close up too! Granted, you don't put a saddle on a pedigree, but this mare is WAY too nice to be euth'd. I loff your horse BTW. I'm always fascinated how those Ribot line horses are so similar. Once you've owned one, you can spot 'em in a crowd for the rest of your life.

              I like Sweet Lil Lolly also! If she's sound she looks like a good riding prospect. I also like Starduster. A couple of these mares have decent race records (above the national average).

              I cross posted on pedigree query.

                Shrpshooter - WOW, just took a look at your boy's pedigree, and he's got a whole lotta special too!! In fact - as a matter of personal preference ONLY, I kinda prefer yours b/c you have several crosses there to Ribot, Turn-To and Tom Rolfe. Pretty similar to the late HRH Avery (best. TB. ever. ). You're a lucky young lady!!!

                  I am eyeballing Sweet Lil Lolly and Way Easy...someone save me from myself (especially as I am NOT interesting in sport breeding, only potential for racing babies, and both would cross pretty darn well on my favorite daydreaming stallion, Fort Prado. [insert gripe about flash-in-the-pan colts getting huge stud fees in primo states while an iron horse stakes winner who raced and won until eight is standing for pennies in Illinois because he's mostly a grass horse from state-stakes company...] At very least I'd probably get a decent fox-hunter out of either of those crosses...)

                  However if there's anyone seriously considering getting one of the last mares and would be shipping them to/through the upper midwest...PM me?

                    C'mon do it! I like Fort Prado too! My race mare was an El Prado granddaughter.

                      I like Way Easy too. And then I looked at her pedigree and there it was, the same pedigree I always choose, Alydar and Storm Cat and this time in one horse (just like the last horse I bought!). Do you think my barn would implode if I had three horses with Alydar breeding pretty close and two of those had Storm Cat close?

                        Just a bump and heads up that we moved this thread to Giveaways where it's a better fit.

                        Thanks!

                          No, I think you'd have a matched set!

                            War Admiral you have been misinformed. Go Rose has a 2010 filly named My Mentor Ann by Lion Hearted. Sweet Lil Lolly has 2 foals. She had a filly in 2010 named Charlotte's Girl by Westwon. Way Easy has never had a foal. Starduster had 1 foal in 2007. Smooth Slew has had 3 foals.

                                Thanks to all for spreading the word. Bradleys Prospect, the colt, and Go Rose have all found great homes. That leaves Sweet Lil Lolly, Starduster, Smooth Slew, and Way Easy. Lots of calls and some possible good homes but nothing set.....

                                      I gather these mares have not been ridden since their racing days, but are they sound for retraining as riding horses?

                                        I know that Starduster has a lot of Raise a Native which people don't like for soundness, but I really like her conformation for eventing, and I do like Alydar. We just are full, but I hope someone takes a chance on her.
