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!

    Bonnie has a date (later this spring, maybe even early summer) with the very handsome and accomplished Sea Accounts!

    After 13 years I'm ready to bring another horse baby into my family for keeps (I foal out mares for other people semi-regularly) and I feel like Bonnie has finally earned her spot in the gene pool by having an outstanding show season last year and by proving herself to be an extremely sound, durable, and just plain easy and fun horse to own and enjoy, year in and year out.

    I bred her mama with the mantra of "yes, I'd take another one like her" and the same holds true for this time around. Naturally she's not perfect and one always wishes for this or that feature to be "improved upon", but this baby is for me and I am very excited! Now to actually make it happen!

    Wish us luck!

      I'm very excited for you - what a nice sounding reson to breed her, and what a lovely choice. I don't breed, but have been admiring Sea Accounts myself, and I am particularly excited to hear about someone breeding to him who I can hear about 'first hand' on this board! Ready to view pics when you have them - ready to see that little dickens come into your family! I'd like to hear a bit more about Bonnie and what she's done, if you care to brag. Nice going.

              Yippee!!!

              You should totally install a nanny cam to catch the momentous occasion (delivery, not conception). What a great reason to have a baby and what a great compliment to Bonnie

                      YAY!!! Another hopeful dreamer taking a leap of faith (again!) and jumping into the deep end by breeding a beloved mare; there is nothing more exhilarating SO excited for you, please keep us updated on everything, and the very BEST of luck--both personally, and from the collective COTH--for a successful outcome!

                      May the wonderful Bonnie and the lovely Cyriz combine their genes in the best possible way. We can't wait to see the result

                          This is going to be a great baby! I don't know if you know this, but one of my Holy Trinity mares (the three mares that I stack all other mares against) is a Mountain Pearl baby. I love her to bits and pieces. She could have been anything, but she has settled very well into her life as beloved pet and perfect ammy horse. I have said for years and years that she would be worth breeding. That will probably never happen, but at least Bonnie gets to pass on those great MP genes, and with a fabulous baby daddy. Good choice! Good luck! I can't wait to live through the process vicariously through you!

                              Yay!!! Congrats. I've been eyeing him as well though I have nothing to breed at the moment but he's a gorgeous hunk of pony for sure. Best of luck to you and to Bonnie.

                                  What excitement for years to come! There was a thread on breeding asking why we do this .... duh.... it's for the love, the dream; the whole satisfaction of the decisions, the plan, the waiting, the cuteness , the waiting, seeing them grow up and evolve, learning who they are, starting them right in life, the bonding, the whole darn adventure. Pretty much the real ultimate in horsemanship.

                                  Hope all your dreams come true! Mine did I now have my 'two' homebreds (my young horse and my youngest daughter) to watch them together and enjoy their partnership to the nth degree! At my age now it's probably my last big hurrah. I can't thank my family enough for being so supportive to let us dream like this. To be so fortunate to be living your dreams in your life, that's fulfillment. But it takes courage and bravery to make the choices to do what makes you so happy in life.

                                  Enjoy each step of the way, you've been there before so you will appreciate it all the more now.
