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!

            Here's another stunner. I don't know what's in the water up in Finger Lakes, but they have some good looking horses!

            SEPowell took the listing for Big Fearless and says he needs a home ASAP. Consider yourselves enabled! He seems to be SO worth the brain surgery!

            I'd be happy to send my address to anyone who wants to ship him to me

                Very mildly--and it may not be real. Not enough that would bother me. I'd look at him closer but he moved well in the video. I've had more than one VERY good jumper with a mild roach in their back like his.

                Nice horse....someone should really go for him!!!

                  Not roached-backed. What you are seeing is just the tops of the dorsal spinal processes on the lumbar vertebrae. When he's muscled up over the loin, you shouldn't see them, and even if you did, it's cosmetic.

                    That's what I would expect as well.

                                Uh oh-just saw this on the FLF thread on Off Course. Hope he lands in a soft spot and gets whatever help he needs.

                                There is a major back story on Big Fearless, and lots of issues. The volunteers of Finger Lakes Finest Thoroughbreds Trainer Listings know the whole story and have been in touch with his breeder, his former trainers, his former exercise rider, and the vet who did a PPE on him last week (did not pass). Due to the issues, and the loveliness of this horse despite the issues, we at Finger Lakes Finest Thoroughbreds have been working feverishly on an adoption/retirement facility and his breeders are working with us on it -- but first we have to wrest the horse away from the people who have him before they whisk him off to the netherworld, and then we have to get him gelded, which we already have a donor for. Saving this horse's life has become a big mission for us and we have four people working very hard at it.
                                If someone is seriously interested in him and would like to know more about this issues, please PM me. But there is almost no time for this horse. We have someone going to the track tonight to see if he is even still there after he trailed the field in a race today.
                                If someone is in a position to get to the track at the crack of dawn tomorrow and get the horse and shelter him while we work out the other arrangements, then bless you and let me know right away!

                                  My horse had a year and half off for a suspensory, still ran til 9 and is perfectly capable of doing lower level eventing. If a person is intersted in a lower level partner, why not vet the horse and see whats what..Not everyone needs or wants to go recognized. If he he is capable of doing the job you want him for he will be very handsome doing it. For alot of these horses time is simply running out...also as an aside, my newest horse ran every two weeks for years except in winter..his ankles are the size of pineapples, he would have been served better with more time off or less frequent starts, so the theory of consistent running is not always perfect either. Despite the fact that he failed the vet in three out of four legs I took him anyway because I need a companion horse here that can occasionally tote my hubby around or take me for a mosey along trail ride. He has the temperment for that and is good looking to boot.

                                    ARGH!!! I wish I had more money!!!!! I would take him, you wouldn't even have to geld him...

                                    He is so lovely, and I love his breeding. My horse by Mr. Greeley (this horse's grandsire) is just super, super.
