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!

        Fingers crossed she did as well. Trainer has offered me another mare. So I will go look at her this weekend (with trailer in tow).

                Just doing some quick research...she has some good jumping lines that I know. And I like Secretariate for sport. But had not heard of Seclusive. Looks like he was sent to stand in Holland for WB jumpers....Zangersheide. Interesting. Found one racing photo online....and she looks like she may have a hell of an engine on her.

                Here were the pictures I found with google...If I get her, I will have to buy them.

                Great web site to search for your horses if you have any OTTBs. I keep checking to see if they have any of mine and this is the firt time I've found some of a horse I know....but they are great shots.

                      I was thinking we may have the wrong mares...this one is grey and yours is red....

                      I'll know this weekend when I see her in person. But she deserves a safe place even if I do not end up using her as a broodmare. Just have to work out where I will put her for a few weeks while my barn is finished.

                        You will find this interesting, I think. Seclusive was the sire of Falco, an event horse who went to the WEGs in 1998 and the European Championships in 2001 for Belgium. Didn't finish well at either competition, but he finished both. His last FEI competition seems to have been in 2008, which means that he evented at FEI competitions for AT LEAST 10 years and probably at least three or four more since the record that I've seen STARTS with his WEG appearance.

                        Couple of other European event horses are Seclusive's grandkids through stallion sons. One is Holsteiner and the other one is sBs. Then he is second damsire of a Zangersheide jumper through a Hanoverian daughter.

                        His dam was a full sister of Exclusive Native.

                        He stood in Belgium.

                              OMG I love the grey mare! 105 starts is amazing. Sorry about the other one; but this one is certainly worth looking at. Post lots of pics and an update!

                              Just want to add, I've had several with Deputy Minister in the pedigree; all were very athletic, great jumpers, and perfectly trainable.

                                Just 1 data point, but my horse when I was in HS was by Seclusive.
                                http://www.equineline.com/Free-5X-Pe..._number=857107

                                Best athlete I have ever owned--tall and rangy, great galloper and jumper. Tough as nails, too. Raced 5 yrs on the flat, then a couple more over fences. When I sold him, the PPE vet said he had the best lungs/wind he'd seen on a horse.

                                He was not an easy ride--strong to the point of reckless. Several good pros moved him on pretty quickly. I was just too young/ignorant to care. I doubt that was genetic though--more likely the steeplechase background then rushed into eventing.

                                I must have a pic somewhere.

                                  Beam--He was lovely! Not sure what this girl will look like when I see her...been in a field a few months but I'm pretty good at looking past skinny and rough to see what is under. My biggest fear is that she will be out with another horse that I will not be able to leave behind.....yes, I'm a sucker and I know it.

                                      So the gray mare (Kourages Kelly) was delivered to my farm today...with her pasture mate Richie the Thief. I took them both. Trainer said he would take Richie back to race some more but I think I will try and keep him if possible. He's quite cute and seems like he wants a different job than racing.

                                      Both horses are very very skinny but both quite nice movers. Look sound too. Can't believe how clean looking the gray mare's legs are given 105 starts! Some TLC and food and both should look nice soon enough.

                                          Thanks Meadow...nice Christmas gift to myself. I hope they will not get sick on me going on the grass but I think they will be ok...will be watching them closely. I will slowing start feeding them some grain and do a power pack of panacur in a little while (after I get my vet out to look at them etc.).
