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!

  • Name That Pony!

    My daughter's new pony is a really cute, sweet and spiffy little Welsh type guy, 12.3hds tall, bright bay with four white socks. His barn name is Cody but we're trying to come up with something cute, clever, or catchy for him to show under.


    So far we've considered (with help from another thread on this forum)/come up with:

    Cody The Wonder Pony
    I've Got Sox Appeal
    The Artful Dodger
    Oliver Twist
    Scooby Doo
    Mr. Incredible
    Under The Influence
    Batteries Not Included
    Mr. Snazzy Pants
    Christopher Robin
    And Tigger Too
    Kahn (Would be too cute as my daughter is Chinese adopted but I'm not sure it suits him at all. Kahn was the name of Mulan's horse in the Disney Movie)
    Moonbeams and Fairy Tales (from Jimi Hendrix's Little Wing)
    Chicks Dig Me
    Sweet As Pie

    Having just spent days (years...) compiling points for our local event organization, I seriously suggest NOT using any name with "Mr." or other punctuation in it -- I had to correct so. many. results. for those kinds of names. Also anything spelled weird is gonna get spelled weird. But not the right weird.

    "Batteries Not Included" is super cute but I think it's used a lot.

    My picks would be
    Chicks Dig Me
    or Sox Appeal (without the "I've got")

        Ooh, "Code Name" is cute.
        Or something like "Code Name _____" <insert something...

          Thanks for the insight baxtersmom. Does "Mister" solve that problem? Goponies: Code Name is good!

          JBCool in the other thread posted "Damn Right" which I like together with "Damn Straight"

              OH MY! Everyone is smiling in this picture, even the dog! SO CUTE!!

              I like
              Christopher Robin
              Scooby Doo

              Khan is an Asian (mostly Mongolian?) ruler right?

              But I keep coming back to Christopher Robin, such a sweet reference. But it would also be cute to hear "so and so riding Tigger Too' over the PA system.

                Thanks! I like Christopher Robin, a lot.

                From the Wiki entry: Christopher Robin is cheerful, compassionate, adventurous, fun-loving, imaginative and helpful. Despite being a child, he is much wiser and more mature than many of the other characters, and is someone that Pooh and the others look up to.

                Scooby Doo is my husband's favorite and I *think* my daugther's but she vacillates endlessly and said, "You pick mama."

                  The best Christopher Robin Poem. Ever.

                  Now We Are Six. (1927) by A.A. Milne

                  When I was One,
                  I had just begun.
                  When I was Two,
                  I was nearly new.
                  When I was Three
                  I was hardly me.
                  When I was Four,
                  I was not much more.
                  When I was Five,
                  I was just alive.
                  But now I am Six,
                  I'm as clever as clever,
                  So I think I'll be six now for ever and ever.

                  When my mom and I had our pony ride business way back in the '90's we used to recite this poem for just turning 6 yr olds.

                    I make handmade soaps and one of the fragrances I use is called "Jamaica Me Crazy". That name fits my daughters horse to a T, but she already has a show name.

                      I love batteries not included. It's one of my favorite pony names!

                      Tigger too always makes me think of the old event horse of I believe Karens if i remember correctly

                            What an adorable pony! There are so many cute names - I think you should avoid ones that are inappropriate for a child, e.g. Sox Appeal and Under the Influence.

                              You know, I've gotta agree with this. Adults love the double entendre but its not groovy for the kids. Love the Code Names. Great ideas. I want to keep it something fun for my kiddo that she can identify with.

                                        Kodachrome is fantastic! +1 for that one.

                                        We have a Cody/Code Name in our barn, a young Holsteiner (I think), black with a little bit of chrome, light as a feather on his feet, and with a great jump.
