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.

  • FREE - Thoroughbred Filly - FL Race Track, New York

    I just received a call from the owner/trainer of this 4 or 5 year old bay filly. The trainer states that she is about 15.1 hands and sound on old osselets. He states that she isn't cut out for the fast race work but should do fine soundness-wise for general riding. According to the trainer this filly is super friendly and a pet. He indicated that he grooms her in her stall without restraint. She is FREE and needs to find a good home ASAP. She is located at the Finger Lakes Race Track in Farmington, NY. Trainer is Neville and his phone number is (585) 905-4214.

    If you can offer this filly a home please call soon. Time is always of an essence. Thanks!

    Her name is Pegasus Sun. Here is a link to her pedigree: http://www.pedigreequery.com/pegasus+sun

    She has a very interesting pedigree for sport. Having Cozzene so close is a tremendously positive thing, and there are several of us who have Deputy Minister grandget who think very highly of them. I have two, and they are wonderful. Peggy, on the H/J board, also has known several and is high on Deputy Minister.

    Deputy Cat's damline has some sterling horses also. There is a line to Luthier, a Klarion/Ksar line, and that line almost always produces very athletic horses. There are also two lines to Grey Sovereign (one through Guinea Sparrow), and most sport horse people agree that he is one of the top TB lines out there. The number of his descendants who have excelled in sport horse disciplines all over the world are almost uncountable.

    Storm Cat seems to be loved by some and dislikely heartily by others. Temperament is part of it, and this mare obviously hasn't inherited that from him. His dam, Terlingua, is one of those TBs whose pedigree is as good for sport as for racing, but since she was such a blue hen racing broodmare, it's only through descendants that sport horse people are able to tap into her quality.

    On the bottom side, besides Cozzene--he's so special that one doesn't have to go behind him, but all his lines are fabulous--, you have Ambiopoise, which gives you linebreeding to the same great French jumping lines as Luthier. Twice Worthy's dam Commemoration is equally good. She is in the lines of some horses who have made names for themselves in H/J.

    Carry Back and Needles are both Hall of Fame race horses, and Carry Back comes from the very superior jumping line of Pennant/Peter Pan. Countess Tecla is from the superior jumping line of Count Fleet and was out of a War Admiral mare.

    I guess I'd say her bottom side is far more proved to produce sport horses, but the top is where modern TB sport horses seem to be trending.

    Overall for FREE, either as a riding horse or a broodmare, Pegasus Sun (who has had more than twenty starts) would be a tremendous find if her conformation (front legs (Storm Cat) and body to leg proportions (Northern Dancer)) are functional.

    Edited to add that the linebreeding to Grey Sovereign is in a place in the pedigree that would more strongly influence the resulting foal. He is tail female sireline on top, and tail male sireline on the bottom. That's probably the single strongest place that linebreeding is effective.

    She also has a factor which I consider very important for superior TB breeders and performers. She has all three of the breed foundation sirelines on her first page and first page + 1 for the mares. Both Ambiopoise and Luthier are Herod line; Flame Enchantee is from the Hurry On branch of the Matchem line, as is Chamossaire, who is by Precipitation, sire of many jumping progenitors, including the great WB sire Furioso. Ranavalo is also Matchem line through the American branch. His sire was Relic, grandson of Man O'War and GGson of Fair Play. The mare up top, Victoriana, is also the American Matchem line from Fair Play through Ladder/Ladkin.

    I have to say that Pegasus Sun has one of the most balanced pedigrees among the three foundation sires that has come to my attention. Herod lines are rare and getting rarer, as are Matchem lines. To my thinking there is something about reinforcing all three close up that is very positive.

      Bumping for Pegasus Sun.

      Vineyridge that was an awesome breakdown of her bloodlines. I hope it inspires someone to snatch her up!

        THANKS Vineyridge! You have incredible knowledge of pedigrees.

          More about Grey Sovereign.

          At least two of his daughters have produced licensed WB breeding stallions. One was Sinful, who was the dam of Sir Shostakovich, licensed by Holstein, Hannover, and Trakehner; the other was Supreme Lady, dam of M-Lolshan, licensed by Zweibrucken.

          Of his sons, almost all have produced licensed WB breeding daughters and sons and grandsons. I have found SF, Holsteiner, Hannoverian, Zweibrucken, Trakehner, Selle Italiano, Swedish Warmblood, KWPN, Westfalen, and Hungarian WBs.

          Cozzene himself is listed as producing licensed Westfalen and SF sons. This however, may be due to some "undue" influence. Nevertheless, to track down all the WB breeding descendants of Grey Sovereign would take weeks.

          Luthier is also strong in WB breeding with licensed descendants in several of the European studbooks. Commemoration is also found in WB pedigrees today, mostly through her French stallion descendant Pharly.

            Her being a Finger Lakes horse, isn't there something special about that as well? Everytime I've inquired on a TB mare, if they were Finger Lakes mares, the owner/trainer always made a big deal about that for some reason...

            Wish I were looking for a mare! She seems lovely and I'm going to pass this along to a breeder friend of mine who has a Western Cat filly and just LOVES her for riding/breeding.

              Well, I, of course, think that Finger Lakes horses, in general, are special. What I have noticed, however, is that, because Finger Lakes is a small track, there are a lot of small owner/breeder/trainers. The breeding can be slightly old fashioned because their mares aren't always put to the most fashionable stallions. That's generally good for the sport horse people, though it may not be so good for those who want a quick sprinter.
