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!

    If this were here, I'd FIND financing. I'd sell body parts. Wow...
    TJ, if that one were here especially it would be at least $1.5, not what it is, I am about to give up on owning horses in the Kitsap Peninsula, at least you have more sun on half of your daggone island. So sad what people put horses on in in my area. I met a vet here who said just to make a mud free area for her horses she had to spend $100,000! laying down a stone foundation.

    • Well, we're selling my house (our, our house, but I bought it pre-DH) to rent for a year or two and save up...and then moving off the island towards Sno County. Can't buy more than about five or ten acres on the stupid island, there was 26 acres with a tiny little old house (oh but fresh paint and new laminate they hyped) and a shed (10'x20'?) and they wanted $650k. Sigh.

      I see all these properties that are unattainable around here, and it almost makes me want to move. Only I know I won't make as much there as I do here.

      • I think farm shopping is an addiction. We just moved into our new farm and I have spent two hours looking at all your links <s> I should be unpacking. It took us years to find the right place with enough land, a barn and house we don't have to rebuild and a price that works for us.It was worth the wait. There are lots of farms for sale in our area as the horse world slowly morphs from thoroughbred farms to show horse farms. Justice Real estate has a dedicated section just of horse farms with great pictures...

It feels like the market is really picking up steam here on the West Coast. We have a horse property we've been hanging on to and renting out on the East Coast (kind of got trapped into holding on to it by the plunging market), but it's starting to feel like we wouldn't take a bath on it any more, so we are exploring all options.

              Yup, you can not build a house on the property. Hence why that price is so outrageous.

                      Yes -- I'm interested as well. Please destroy my dream. Unless, of course, you are indicating its even nicer.
                      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.

                        I did not see the inside of the house, all I have to say is that the photographer is a genius of disguise with the outside. I saw this barn in the fall, and the fields were bare dirt, it must be that these pictures were taken when the barn and arena were first built. And, for the life of me, cannot see how or where the photographer took those long range shots of the house, unless this is a different farm entirely and I am way off (I am not), they must have used a wide angle lens. What tips me off that I am not wrong is that arena and the aisle leading from the stable to the indoor. This is not unusual if you know how these glitzy pictures work with the wide angle lens. I cannot tell you how many places I saw (other than the one we actually bought) that looked nothing like the photos which many times were taken years earlier.

                          • Need to move to the middle of nowhere, and save some money? This is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath manufactured home on 5 acres. $29,900. Vacant and bank-owned. I actually went to look at it as an investment, but it's too far away. Not near jobs; not near good highways to places with jobs. Ideal for someone who can sell where they are now, and use the equity to move to this place. It needs a lot of work, but is habitable as is, or at least I didn't see any showstoppers. The 5 acres is not clear and level, so not a good place for horses. Would be great for a retired couple to live off Social Security, and have a big garden and some chickens, etc.

                              Now you will have to find something else to fantasize about which should not be too much of a problem with all of those over built places on the market in a seemingly endless supply. Gig Harbor is a beautiful area though. Sorry about popping that bubble!

                              • At nearly $15 Million this Millbrook, NY (the land of "Horses and Porsches") based farm "Grace Hill" is interesting. The video for the property is here with plenty of equine focus.

                                An interesting bit of history: the farm was previously owned by actress Mary Tyler Moore.

                                    • The little place I linked to in post #134 has had a further price reduction. Down to $19,900 for the double wide mobile home and five acres. Very rural Georgia setting. Pretty, but not near jobs or transportation. Not near a university, so neighbors will be very rural country folk. Perfect for a retired couple who need to live off their Social Security, and wants a garden and some chickens. Needs work, but would be perfect for someone with lots of free time. I love a bargain and love a rehab project, but this is not near where I live at all. Sigh.

                                          Just stumbled back upon this thread...This particular farm ain't that far away from us. It wasn't in great shape when it was last sold and the blacksmith tells me it's even worse now...is in need of a gazillion dollar overhaul...the Internet makes it all look pretty darn good, though, huh?

                                          mvp - as for SP...my experience having lived there ages ago...snowbirds & other money. I am trying to think of "regular" folk I know there that have farms...coming up blank. And by regular, I mean to say that SP is a really small, quaint place w/o the job market of an urban area. For example, if DH & I were to move there...he'd have one heck-uva commute and I guess I could go back to teaching school. For what those places are, they are a good deal compared to the same stuff in other markets. I'd move there in a heartbeat if I could.
