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!

    oh i could afford this one!
    and if ic an't find something in my county (chittenden in vermomt)i'll be looking in this area, thanks!

      If I could ever manage to win this damn mega-millions you will find me living here: http://sea.themlsonline.com/details,...ts,316664.html

      The house looks fine (like most horse people I gloss over the house pics ) but I want that gorgeous arena and lovely pastures SO BAD! And I figure the 3-car garage with RV bay that would fit a lift will keep the SO occupied with his projects so I can ride all of those lovely horses I'm going to buy at the European auctions LOL

        For those with racing aspirations ... still on the market almost five years later (and without a change in the $10M price) Tepta Farm ("Chantilly of the Chesapeake") in Maryland.

        And the largest farm that I'm aware of on the market in Virginia at 2,426 acres: the late Ned Evan's Spring Hill Farm, Casanova, VA for $25 million.

        Also on the market (for a looong time) is the famed estate of Peggy Augustus' also in Virginia - Old Keswick on 550-acres for $13.5 million.

        And for some multi-media video you can see Ashleigh Farm in Delaplane, VA largely restored by art patron and thoroughbred owner Sandra Payson who passed away about a decade ago. It is back on the market for $3,495,000 which is almost the same price the current owners paid.

          A few examples in Canada (while watching HH in the background, same requirements.. open plan, SS, granite... for a first house! I don't have all that but I would really like a new kitchen...)

          http://www.horseclicks.com/stunning_...perties/329781 Lindsay is kind of out of the way though.

So right now I'm really looking more at rentals; DH wants to rent horse property and I don't, but even then we need rentals that accept two dogs, and possible has "RV parking" for the horse trailers!

              I found one place that was on four acres, cross fenced for cows or horses..but says no pets! Uh?
              I understand the no pets deal, I am sure if people are even hazarding a thought about selling they absolutely do not want pets in or on the property. It is why I am thinking about not putting in a pasture on our scant 2 acres because of the damage that horses can do on grass/don't want a sacrifice area because we are really not in a "horse" property area, and it will probably not sell that way. It is very cute and rural as it is but on hardpan.

                Hey Glimmer that would be "Tapeta Farm", although I think it is not selling because you might have to dress like that woman with the "hat"? Guess not too many American Oligarchs out there with the cash. wow

                  [QUOTE=alabama;6805047]When I was house shopping, an appraiser told me that things like fencing and barns did nothing for an appraisal. I was surprised by that.

                  QUOTE]

                  I had one realtor tell me the same thing-that my barn, indoor, and all the post and rail fenced pastures weren't worth anything. And, to top it off, she had horses herself! I admit I had heard that in relation to a swimming pool.

                  Now, on the plus side, when I built the barn and indoor and fenced and cross fenced, my assessment only went up $30K. Believe me, I spent a WHOLE LOT MORE than $30K, well over 130K to be exact!

                  I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people...I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

                    I would love to see a thread from all of the regions in the US with these kinds of properties or up to $400,000 simply because I am dying to get out of here! I want sun! And of course would never even consider anything more than that price wise.

                      Ok, is this just me or does this purchase price seem too low for that area? That is a lovely property, I may have to think about moving to Jersey!

                        You have to look at the job availability to see if the purchase price is "low" for that area. I am sure they are pricing it for the market unless they need to cut and run quick.

                            Indeed my latin is a bit rusty hence the misspelling (tapeta means carpet) on Micheal's farm. It's a lovely place but priced exceeding out of whack for the region. 200 acres is nice but you can get more for less and the house isn't a Revolutionary War era pile like the traditional Eastern Shore old money farms.

                              Nothing with horses is ever easy or cheap. And if it is, you're doing it wrong. They always rip out part of your soul when they leave. I guess that's how they find us later.

                                  When we were looking for our first home a few years ago I was DESPERATE to buy someplace I could have horses. Even potentially have horses. This was in Western Mass in 2007 (yeah, not a good time... dumb). You would not believe the $#!% hole houses we looked at in an effort to find a property suitable for equines.

                                  If I had a few extra bucks I would snap this place up. $625k, indoor, FORTY stalls, picturesque New England farm with a pond. (Squee! Ducks!)

                                    And the ones with the sprawling lawns? Make sure it comes with a riding mower and that you have someone to cook dinner for you, because you will be mowing every day after work during some parts of the year.

                                      The flip side complaint I have is when a house is said to be "perfect for the equestrian" in the description and all it has is a 2-acre lot and a small, dingy barn. Seriously? That's a "horse farm" in some real estate circles?

                                      Honestly just because there is a "barn" doesn't make a property suitable for horses. Claiming such just illustrates how little an agent knows about riding.

                                      Level ground, good fencing, proper water, a stable with box stalls, the opportunity for trails (and I don't mean goat paths with a 30-degree pitch) .. we get the picture.

                                        I can't get over how much you can get for the money in some areas. Acreage, indoor arenas, etc.

                                        I think I'm depressed.

                                          i often window shop online for fun and my one main grievance is that unless you're looking to spend upwards of $2 million (at least in the area i live in), you'll get a small acreage with either a decent house and a terrifying barn with shoddy paddocks, or a nice barn, paddocks and alright arena with a total plow-down for a house. it seems insane, haha!

                                          but if i was ms. money bags, i'd set up shop here and never leave.
