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!

  • CANTER Mountaineer *swoon*

    CANTER Mountaineer put up some new horses and some are truly swoon-worthy. I can't pick out which one I like more of these 2 (maybe the brown guy).

    Rhode Islands are red;
    North Hollands are blue.

    Urgh. Why do I look at these again?

    FWIW, I've just fallen hard for Advice and Consent; and no, there is no way I can justify getting him. I barely have time to work with my 2 current horses.

    Anyway, just based on pics, description, and pedigree, A&C all the way. If I had to fault something, he looks a tad light through the hind end/hocks and maaayyybee a tiiiiiny bit behind at the knee? (Note: I am trying to find faults to make myself feel better, I think.)

    If I hadn't gotten a 2-yo (now 3-yo) last year, I would totally be looking into A&C further.

    His temperament sounds perfect, his face and ears are off the cuteness charts (hey, never hurts, right?!), and he looks to be pretty well conformed with clean legs.

    (This is my cue to go look at lotto tickets, I suppose....)

            yeah, I clicked the link, thought "cute horse", looked down and thought "uggggg why did they do that to his feet!!!" I can’t even picture how the coffin bone is sitting in those hind feet, wacky angles, long long toes, no heel. I mean look at the pastern vs. hoof angle?!?! How can a farrier walk away from that thinking that it looks good? The brown by comparison has HEELS and low and behold, his pastern angles match his hooves.

            So what is the consensus? I have heard some track farriers like LONG toes because it gives them "more grab".

            Is there anything to this, or it is just some wives tale that has resulted in some F'ed up TB feet?

              I loooove Advise and Consent. I predict he'll be gone by next week now that his ad has been pointed out!

              If someone on this board gets him, please tell us!

                I think Advise and Consent is by far the best one I've seen in a while.

                I don't care for the shoulder on the gray.

                  I love Advise and Consent. He has a great face, too!


                  • #10
                    Of those two, I prefer the brown one. But of the lot of new ones, I want Bolten N Streakin. He looks really nicely put together and he has the cutest face. Perhaps his temperament doesn't reflect his name?

                    Fortunately for someone else, I'm broke.

                      Just an FYI on R Holy Won....
                      Trainer said he was having trouble reaching his farrier so he just pulled the shoes off. He was a bit embarrassed about the horse's feet but wanted ot get him online anyway. FWIW, this trainer's horses are taken care of better than most you see. He is an excellent hand. Notice that neither of his horses (Advise and Consent) have a chain on while handling them.

                      Bolten N Steakin is extremely quiet, as is Oughtlands.

                      Video links....just finished them...

                      ETA: Just realized the grey did have a chain on....but the bay did not.

                              Ooh, someone stick Advice & Consent and Keen Runaway on a trailer to Georgia, pretty please. I had a Blushing Groom granddaughter that was awesome and I'd love to have another with him up close.

                              Also agree that Al is drool worthy. Look forward to hearing how he does in his new career.

                                  I really loved Advise and Consent until i saw the jog video he is sound but that one foot looks really clubby in the video way more so than in the photo when you take a hard look and just isolate the feet.

                                  The gray actualy for all the toe behind was very sound and even.....

                                    If Bishful Thinking gets sound he will be super elegant. Big risk though. He's very good looking if you don't mind 'em lanky and long, which I don't. I hope he has a soft landing.

                                      Just bumping this up to let you all know that R Holy Won is sold and will be heading to Colorado. I believe there is a sale pending on Advise and Consent. UL eventer from MI contacted me about finding a vet for a PPE. It was very last minute so I'm not sure yet if they were able to fit that into the schedule or not.

                                        If possible, could you please put me in contact with whoever is seriously interested in Advise and Consent. I have known him for the last year or so (until he shipped to MNT from KY) and feel that there are several important aspects of his personality that a potential buyer would find helpful.
