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!

    She's adorable. What's on her shoulder? Is it wet or is it a marking? (Doesn't matter, I'm just curious...)

      The only thing that makes me go "ehhh...." is those pasterns, just a little fine, slightly long and upright for my taste. But they might look different when the feet get shaped up, and I'm sure they look different in person, she'd definitely be worth a trip to look.

        Looks like a Bend Or spot on her shoulder.

            That's a beautiful filly. Her pedigree is filled with horses who have produced for sport. Might not be fast, but shows where she got her athleticism.

                I really REALLY liked her but she is WAYYYYY above my price range for something right off the track

                  Interesting, she and my guy share a couple of the lines on her dam side... I never see them. Pretty, fancy girl...

                    Unfortunately, you cannot change the angles of her hind limbs.

                      Agree. Too much $ is why she has not been "snatched up."

                        Well....relatively speaking....this mare is not really priced too high, in my estimation. Of course one would want a vetting to insure soundness, but with her age, size, conformation, given the stable she is coming from, and taking a quick look at the "event prospect" market, she's well priced. Dollar for dollar, the Thoroughbred is the best bargain going if you are looking for young event prospects...

                        Honestly ... I have had a lot of different horses in my barn just in my own little lifetime and have learned there is no hard and fast rule to conformation, certainly nothing to rule out, until you WATCH THEM MOVE.

                        Watching horses like these move....school....train on.....compete....and eventually BEAT you as they go up the ladder....makes you wonder where people learn what WORKS and does not work as required conformation for an event horse. I hope no one who worries about this beautiful mares' conformation (which is exemplary) goes to the jog at Rolex without smelling salts, oxygen tank, and a friend to catch them, because they would simply faint straight away at what is jumping around a four-star.

                          I guess I disagree. 2500 for a good sized, good moving horse without too many starts...is not too much.

                          Yes...you can get cheap ones off the track but in my experience, many race people know a good horse and do not mark them down to bottom barrel prices. If this mare was a gelding...I have very little doubt she would have been snatched up by now...probably for a slightly higher price.

                            Man, oh man. If I had not just purchased a different chestnut with chrome I would already be setting up a vetting (and I don't even like mares). She is absolute eye candy.

                            I think her pasterns look long enough to be a comfy ride but not upright enough to be problematic, the angles are sweet.

                              Considering the similar although bigger mare from Mtneer went for 4995..and having stood next to this mare and actually watched her I wouldnt say she is priced to high....And the way to put her price into perspective I dropped ..$5k on 2 horses from same track one from same trainer. .you often get what you pay for. I prefer to spend less but then I am a reseller...both of those fancy brown geldings I sold in less than 24 hours a lot of people drooled over I paid more for and sold for even more...but until we go see the horse and watch how all the parts fall together and work we just don t know. Why horses and life is a learning curve everyday...

                                Did the Mellow Tone mare sell??(of course she did!) Full asking price? I am green w/envy!! She certainly didn't look like a hot redhead, she had the wise mare eye, very noble and classic. We were swooning.

                                    A good video will make all the difference.

                                    I am 9 hours away and would want to see her do more than stand and look pretty before hitching up my trailer and jumping in my car.

                                    The "chestnut mare" thing also makes me think twice about her. But I could be swayed if she looked like a real athlete.

                                      Of course, Lord Helpus. I would like a video and am 4 hours away! But either that or get someone you trust to go take a look for you. I've done that. I think COTH must have an event board regular "pod" at every race track!
