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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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 TBs Need Homes in Ohio

    This was forwarded along to me from a dog rescue contact. I'm in FL and frankly, there are plenty of rescue TBs in this neck of the woods needing homes but wanted to put this out there for those of you in that area.

    Wish I had more info to pass on but what is below is exactly what I got.

    A barn full of 52 horses will go to Sugarcreek on Saturday if they are left.
    Gentleman died and his son wants nothing to with them

    Most broodmares are broke and some are in foal.
    weanling, yearlings,two yrs, and 3 yr old most are gelded - he was a vet -- NONE broke and very lightly handled

    Free and papered if they can find them you can have them.
    Friend of the deceased gentleman is trying to find them all homes 440-463-4288

    I'm bringing home 2

    Doc was my vet more than 30 years ago and I had bought two horses from him almost as long ago and also bred a mare to one of his stallions. All 3 of them were quality animals with great dispositions. So Kyle & I made the 2 hour road trip to check them out. It was like going into a puppy pen & trying to pick one out. They were all over us checking us out.

    They are all in good condition an nicely put together with good bone but you have to look past the FUR and dreadlocks! We finally made our choices by looking at their feet because we have had our share of problems with TB feet and thought that was the best place to start. It appeared that they haven't seen a farrier in quite some time. Kyle picked out a filly that had well balanced, evenly worn feet with HEEL!! He also observed her in the herd and liked her attitude. She also turned out the be out of the mare that the gal I spoke with and found out that the mare had won 12 races out of 74 starts so we figured that she had to be an athlete with heart and had to be pretty sound!

    I found a colt that had pretty good feet as well. He is out of a French Legionnaire mare and I know that there are some upper level event horses with that breeding. But it seemed that every time I turned around I would see that face with the very distinct whorl right between his eyes

    The only problem is I have to pick them up before Sat and we currently are having an ice storm. Keep your fingers crossed that it is an uneventful trip. I'm not looking forward to shipping two unbroke 3 year olds who have never been off the farm before!

    BTW, they were down to 25 horses needing homes and numerous people were schedule to come yesterday & they have been getting countless phone calls. The poor barn manager who had been there for more than 30 years is a bit overwhelmed.

    I feel so badly that Doc's son chose to disperse his father's life's work in such a way and I'm happy I was able to give two of these horses a home.

    There is a lesson here for all of us to make provisions for all of our animals in our wills!

      Funny that you should say that Jackie - - I was planning to "alot" a sum of money out of my "life insurance" to go towards the upkeep of my OTTB gelding in the event that something ever happens to me!

      My hubby is not a "horse person" - - but I know he would do the right thing - - cause he knows I would haunt him all the way to hell and back if he didn't lol!

      But -- it's always nice to have it in writing - - not only that my horses should go to "so and so" - - but that there are also funds somewhere to help make sure they are taken care of.

            Thanks for the update Nancy I thought they were going to be able to get it done. That keeps me from bring an extra one home Dave has already given them barn names: Jack & Jill

            I of course have Jack. But I don't mind, the last Jack that I had was Vijack who took me around Rolex when they still ran a **

            Kyle's filly is going to need a new show name, her's is Ohio Rocket. I just don't want he living up to her name. She's by Colony Key out of Ask for the Stars, we're thinking Key to the Stars or Reach for the Stars. We'll see. I can't locate a name for my guy on pedigree query. Maybe I can ask Bob after things settle down. He's also by Colony Key out of Super Legionnaire. Any suggestions?



            • #7
              No thanks go to CANTER, there were plenty of OTTB people like JFS stepping in to help. I was going to go today with some other OTTB lovers, but were told they were all adopted. I hope they all got good homes like Jack and Jill.

                JFS--The mare Super Legionaire (one n) is on Pedigree Query but there is no record of her offspring nor is there any record on there for offspring by Colony Key out of that mare. How old is the colt? Maybe Doc did not get around to sending in JC Papers. Maybe give them a call. I found them helpful over the phone.


                • #9
                  He's a three year old so I also wondered if they didn't register him or if it's because his dam never raced? Doesn't really matter, we never registered Gus and at least we know his pedigree. Now the filly, that's a different story in case she ends up being bred some day.



                  • #10
                    I never actually asked Dave (husband) if he cared if I brought one home because he's been bugging me a little about selling the ones I have for sale. He called while we were just about to come home to see how they were and I told him that we had the pick of the bunch he said 'aren't you glad you went down early?" Never made a comment about me picking two! Sometimes he surprises me

                      2008 colt?

                        Just for future reference, has free pedigrees that are much more accurate since their info comes from JC and not from anyone who wants to log in and change it. You cannot search for all offspring of a mare or sire (for free - but you can pay for a report), but you can search by dam and year foaled for free.

                        I found this guy's name by searching for YOB 2008 and Dam Super Legionaire.

                          JFS, I listed a French Legionaire Mare for a lady many moons ago. She was one heck of a nice mover. At that point she was second level and it was soooo easy for her. I can't remember her name but she did come from Dr. Stearn's farm. Good luck with the new babies!

                            Thanks JWB. It's nice to know his name, although my husband still thinks we should call the pair Jack & Jill

                            Jenarby. That's good to hear. Keeping our fingers crossed. Never did see either of them move.

                                    Thx JWB I keep forgetting those are free. I have a brisnet account but race records are still not free there. There have been a lot of phone calls and my e-mail is overflowing about these horses so if any of you hear/get the same, please let them know they have all been adopted. Personally, I am very happy he is getting all these phone calls about Doc's horses.

                                      I have two youngsters (coming 5 and 4) from that mare, Chocolate Patti. I will PM you and send pics -- they are LOVELY. I leased her to give my teenage daughter a dressage education, she ran and tore her back fetlock out in the field, the owner let me keep her to breed - which was MY FIRST thought when I first laid eyes on her!!

                                      The 5 yr old gelding will now be my DD's event horse - she's waited 7 long years without complaining - and wowsa is he worth the wait! The 4 yr old filly from her is drop dead gorgeous, exactly what I wanted from her when I kept her to breed. Had to try twice to get it, but no regrets having two foals from this mare. I did not have the resources to continue breeding her (inventory tends to buildup ).

                                      Someone should contact me -- this mare is a giveaway right now and she is a first time pop easy, very fertile breeder - text book deliveries. Would be a good candidate with frozen.

                                      I posted on another thread about the bloodlines on this farm. Lucky people who got there in this weather and what a crapping shame that they ended up this way. Dr Stearn had nice horses.

                                      I put that photo of her up on pedigreequery. Another picture of mare here
