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!

  • KY canter cutie

    Why am I not in Kentucky (and not in need of a second horse)...

    http://www.canterusa.org/index.php?o...ainer-listings

    She is so cute! I like her build and her presence! Someone in KY snatch her up, she wants to event!

  • #2
    She's lovely! I really like her!

    ... but is it just me, or is there something going on with that front right ankle? Eeek. D:

      What a pretty face. I like her nice feminine waist and big girth, lots of lung room!

      I'm no conformation expert, but her cannons look really long for eventing and I'm wondering where the rest of her butt is.

          Lost shoe or not, check out the differences in her two front feet. Yikes.

          I would pass or if she was a world beater in disguise I'd spend more than her purchase price to vet the beejezus out of her at Rood & Riddle. Even then
          I'd be worried about that ankle.

            I -think- the big ankle is a combination of mud + poofy hair. I bet she'd clean up nice.

              That RF looks a mess. The tendons look thickened both above and below the fetlock, she is otherwise lovely. Hope she finds a good home.

                          I took the listing on this mare. She was lovely. Very sweet and quiet, with a true presence. She walked out sound, and in person she did not have huge ankles. She had NOT had farrier work recently and was sound on very uneven hooves that had not been trimmed and was missing a shoe. I would agree that it is always a good idea to get a prepurchase exam on any prospective horse, but please don't jump to conclusions from a set of photos that were taken of a horse on a very windy day on a horse that had not been cleaned up prior, and very likely had some mud on her. If anyone has any questions about her, please feel free to contact me. She was a lovely animal and I would have taken her if I had the room.

                            Did you let the OP know? I would hate for all of us to be wrong and her to missed an opportunity to have a lovely horse and the horse a new life.

                                I think she's a nice filly and she's by Not for Love http://www.pedigreequery.com/wheres+the+love (really nice sire)

                                She looks well balanced and athletic to me, nice feet and nice expression on her face. I can see why you like her. I think you should go check her out.

                                  All you confirmation gurus are making me take a closer look, I definitely didn't look that closely at her legs since I am in no way looking seriously, however I have seen plenty of horses without absolutely ideal confirmation be more sound than those with 'perfect' confirmation-so if I were actually going to do something I'd say PPE would be the deciding factor

                                  These conversations are cool to see what everyone pays attention to!

                                    I also took the listing on this mare. She was very cute and looked very catty and athletic. She was a much slighter build than the other mare, but sticked taller than she looked. I think in the right hands she could be a lot of fun!

                                      I saw this lovely horse, Sunshine Murray, this past summer at Finger Lakes. He is gorgeous in person, looked very athletic, was friendly, and was with a trainer who takes great care of her horses. I bought a horse from her last year, and she is totally straightforward about their soundness, personality, needs, etc. If any of you are seriously interested in Sunshine Murray, PM me, and I can tell you how to contact his former FL trainer so you can get her insights o nhim, up to the day he left her care and went on to Suffolk and then Penn National.
