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!

        I like Lipco Video but it's a shame there are no conformation shots. I like that he has Fappiano in his pedigree. I would like to see some pictures where you could really assess his conformation.

        Hammering Buckeye is a very good looking horse but the fact that he has Storm Cat in his pedigree and there are shots of him looking a bit naughty would worry me because I'm an adult ammie who doesn't like hot horses. I know lots of people like Storm Cats so this is just one person's opinion. The ones I've met haven't been my type of ride so that's why I tend to stay away from them. If it was a horse who was already "let down" from the track and you could tell his temperment then I wouldn't be as worried.

        Lovetofinishfirst is also very good looking. My only concerns would be that his neck looks a tad short and the underside a bit muscled. I also can't tell if his pasterns are a bit long. Sometimes they look longer than they are depending on how they are shod.
        His pedigree is also good-What a Pleasure, Sir Ivor, Fappiano although they are farther back in the pedigree. He is a smaller horse so for resale that may be a consideration.

        Just my .02.

          I like the second one including his pedigree. Can't tell much about the first one...would like to know his name etc.

          Third horse is cute...just like the second one better.

              yeah....working with lack of sleep here! (work is crazy). Sorry I missed it. They are all nice....pros and cons. None are making me want to grab my check book though if I was looking for re-sale. Now if you are looking for yourself...I'd want to go their in person and see how you click....

                I'd love to see confo pics on Lipco Video...he looks very interesting.
                Don't like Lovetofinishfirst. The extra pics posted definitely confirmed what I was leaning towards in his ad...funky front legs set too far under his body and a bit downhill, also a tad short in the neck and long in the pastern. He has a nice haunch on him, though!
                I'd go see Hammering Buckeye in person to get a feel for his temperament...his pictures don't scream major conformation issues, so I'd go see how he is in person.

                    I like Lipco Video the most out of the three, but it's just so tough to say without a conformation shot.

                    I wonder if Hammering Buckeye is being retired because he's a bad actor in the paddock? That doesn't always come with the horse once they're let down and retrained, but I would ask a lot of questions, as the start box might set off the same sort of behavior.

                    I also like this guy: http://www.canterusa.org/index.php?o...ngs&Itemid=283

                    And I love this mare. Oooh. http://www.canterusa.org/index.php?o...ngs&Itemid=283

                        Actually there were a few at that track that would make me take a drive

                        But it depends on what you are looking for...I don't study the pictures too closely. Just what catches my eye. Take a closer look at their conformation and how they move when you see them in person.

                        ETA: I used to own a Forty Niner grandson who is running Intermediate now with an ammy. Very good jumper--decent mover too. So I found it funny that my quick pick...picked out a Forty Niner granddaughter and he is also in the pedigree of the first horse. As a sire he got sent off to Japan fairly earlier...so it isn't like he is all that common around here!

                                  I bought a couple of horses from Juan, so I wouldn't worry too much about the horse's temperament. He can make a saint nuts. He's a VERY nice guy, seems to love his horses, but is not really a horseperson, if you know what I mean. If you aren't 100% sure of checking soundness yourself, get a PPE. I still have one of the horses that I bought from him. He was supposed to be a resale horse--very fancy mover--but ended up being so safe and completely unflappable that I'm keeping him for my husband to ride and to be company for our young horses to ride out with. When I went to see him, Juan put a lip chain on him just to go in the stall with him, then would only jog him in the shed row for me to look at. Said he was too crazy to take outside. The others I got from him, were very similar, just not to the extreme that Pickles was. So don't forget the PPE, but don't worry too much about the temperament, IMO.

                                  And I agree with JBRP about Cynthia. If it's Cynthia Rickman, she will NOT sell you the horse if you want it for a resale project. I stopped calling on any of her horses once I figured that out, since most of mine are purchased for resale eventually.

                                      regarding Number 2; are you planning on running XC in a shank chain bit ? :wink grin:
                                      No in all seriousness, I think his hind leg looks really week, not the butt, that's good, the hock, pasterns, and feet. Plus he's downhill. Number one has a nice eye in the pic.
