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!

  • Wow--Canter BEAUTY! Delaware Park

    This mare will knock you socks off. She is big and gorgeous and by Our Emblem. She does have a pulled suspensory, but just needs some time off.

    Yes, she is gorgeous. What would be involved in the treatment of the suspensory injury? Whats the chances of her being 100% sound for riding? jumping?

      She's lovely. Any idea what her temperament is like? How does she move?Being on stall rest you may not know, but what does her trainer say?

          Is she still available? What a beauty and she has good bloodlines too.

              Yes, she was just posted this week and needs a home ASAP! Give the trainer a call if you have more questions but our volunteer said she was simply gorgeous and the trainer said she was a really nice mare one of the special ones.

                Any idea what shipping would be to eastern MA?

                This is so bad...I really do not need another horse! But I am partial to TB mares, and my own mare raced at Delaware Park. She also had a suspensory injury, so I am well versed in the care and layup...

                I am hoping one of my friends will take her so that I don't have the temptation!!

                  Not exactly...

                  Would she need 30 days stall rest, or just 30 days no work? Will she need to be sweated and wrapped? How long will it take for her to be completely sound. I've seen other horses never right after a suspensory injury. I'm asking a question looking for a real answer.


                  • #10
                    Only a vet would be able to give you that answer. I suggest you call the trainer and ask for the vet's contact info who evaluated her or if you like her have a vet take a look. We have no way of knowing but I would suspect there would be wrapping and stall rest involved before she would be turned out.


                    • #11
                      Suspensories require stall rest....I am sure the 30 days is no turnout rest. The good news is...it's a front suspensory and not a rear...front suspensories have a much better chance of completely healing than a hind one.

                      She is absolutely stunning.

                        Anyone have any idea what shipping would be from DE Park to MA? Also, any reputable shipper recommendations?

                          Word To the Wise

                          Get it Ultra Sounded FIRST before you leap.
                          And I just sold a lovely "our Emblem" he was the best minded horse and a drop dead gorgeous mover. If she has 1/2 of his attitude and movement she will be a winer.
                          BUT first get the suspensory Ulra Sounded. If its torn @ the branch it will need longer and even a bad one will fill in but can become chronic nagging issues.

                              For shipping quotes, you can try

                              Both will give you quotes. I have never used uship but I use travelinghorse all the time.

                              I have used Mike from A & J horse transport out of PA in that area with great prices, if you google the name you will find his site.

                              Additionally, if you talk to the trainer they may know someone from the track who makes regular runs to other tracks that may be closer to you. This is usually the most economical way to ship in my experience.

                              Good Luck and do be careful and with the suspensory, especially with jumping.

                                Thanks. I am trying to convince my farrier/friend to take her. She is a lifelong horsewoman who has her own small barn, and was just saying that she'd like to rescue another OTTB, as she has the room. The mare would have the best of care and would not be used for jumping - just light trail riding and some very light ring work.

                                I'd take her myself in a heartbeat but cannot justify paying board for 2 horses right now.

                                  Kim- If you're still looking for a shipper recommendation/estimate, I'm a big fan of Potomac (www.potomachorsecarriers.com)- despite the name, they're based out of northern MA (or maybe southern NH? don't remember off-hand). They shipped one of ours down to Aiken last year for $800-ish and recently brought my new guy up from southern MD for $500-ish on short notice (we're at the CT/RI line). I think their prices are fair for the quality of service and peace of mind; TJ is a true horseman, their communication is excellent, and the rigs are really well maintained.

                                    Has anyone been able to reach the owner/trainer at the number listed? I have tried but no luck. If I can confirm a few important details (good temperament, no crib, JC papers) I am all prepared to take her. Fortunately, I am married to a vet, so we are well prepared to rehab her. Even if she never recovers full soundness, she will have a home with us.

                                      there are a number of modalities to help heal soft tissue injuries. She is lovely and worth the effort!

                                      I just did some shockwave for a hind suspensory with very good results.

                                      Good luck

                                        Lucky person who gets her, I've been drooling over her for a couple of days, what a desperately pretty mare. Please post a followup if you take her home!
