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!

  • Event Pedigree "Wow"

    I'm not one to usually post about pedigrees, but I just looked up this mare's, and I'd love to have input from the pedigree experts. Nothing exceptionally rare, just nice all around, I think. This is a mare who may join our training/breeding program-- 5yo dainty, lovely, level-headed beauty. Will try to get pictures today.

    Lady's pedigree

    (They had been calling her "Tee Pee" or "TP" as a barn name. Lady, as unoriginal as it is, fits much better.)

    Highlight of the morning: I just realized that she is related to JER's beautiful, gentle Kissy Kiss, who is due to foal in a couple weeks. Through Le Fabuleaux, we have a "family" program! Lady is dark bay ("dark chocolate" bay, like a Dove ice cream bar), not black-with-chrome like Kiss, but she has the same gorgeous conformation, huge doe eyes, and gentle demeanor.

    Thoughts? Input? Please?

    Thanks for the memories, Glenbaer! I had a wonderful mare bred,oh so much like this one back in the 90s. She was slight, very feminine, 16 hds. and tore up x-c all over the region through Interm. She was so made for the long formats and did quite well. Kind of a hand full in Dressage but many were back then. And her granddam was Icecapade!
    Have fun!

      I started a Chief Seattle colt for a friend last year. Great sense of self preservation, even if he did have a bit of a 'no' in him sometimes. He's one that I'll get on anytime!

        One of the reasons Le Fabuleux is a line to look for in sport horses is because his sire was Wild Risk, one of the truly great sport horse lines. Cahill Road is a full brother of Unbridled.

        One small problem with Le Fabuleux is that the Gana Facil line has been known to pass on the Wild Risk pasterns--rather short and upright--which are believed to have come from John O'Gaunt through Blandford.

          Do you mind me asking where she is now?

          I'm doing my level best to keep up with trainer/track listings and I remember this one because of her name. If she does join your program, would you mind if I popped her onto the blog?

          (and since she's a pretty one.... hard to imagine calling her "TP!")

            I actually don't like it very much.
            I'm not a fan of the Slews or Northern Dancers.

            I've not known any Slews that I like. They just aren't my kind of horse.
            Might be a bit of that "no" that Timex speaks of. I've not known them to be smart either. But everyone else seems to have a different experience and I mostly hear good things about them.

            I ended up with 2 horses with the Norther Dancer lines (thankfully only once) by way of Nijinski.
            I think Vineyridge did say that if you must have a ND line--Nijinski is the one who is somewhat acceptable. lol. I don't remember why though...

            every horse is an individual though so it's hard to make gross blanket statements!
            Hopefully she will put my stereotypes to shame!
            Horses are amazing athletes and make no mistake -- they are the stars of the show!

              My guy has Cahill Road as a grandsire but on the top side. I love him!

              He also has a little bit of "no" to him at times (mostly trailer loading because I have to do it solo) but he also is very generous about jumping-still going over the fences even when he could have easily ducked out if he wanted to. He is also a good mover.

              Both my websites have pictures of Indie-bay with big blaze and four whites.

              Here is his pedigree


              I wish I knew more about the French and British bloodlines, though!

                My stallion has Seattle Slew, Fappiano (and another MP son, Gone West) and ND (but further back) and is very smart, great jumper, lovely movement, extremely rideable and genuine. I had one SS who was claustrophobic due to a start gate accident, every other one I've ridden has been great.

                  Very nice old line breeding of from both sides. My age 34 TB mare also has Bull Dog , who goes back to Teddy one of the stallions noted in Eventing mag several years ago. They are opinionated, but will give you their best when asked. Also they never get tired.

                      Thank you so much! See, now I can blame this all on you guys-- "But they said she was nice!"

                      caffeinated-- Sure! Please do! As I understand, she was acquired off the track by a rider local to S.Pines. She has done a few nearby activities, although I believe it was a touch premature in development/training. Through the grapevine connection, I found that she was looking for a home. Being a lover of sensitive mares, and a firm believer in things happening for a reason, I sat on her on Easter-- instant connection.

                      Lady came on Monday for a month's trial. Two rides on her now at JMP, and so far, she hasn't set a hoof wrong. I've tried testing things, pushing buttons, but she happily goes about her job. She just needs some muscling and flatwork, and we'll see what unfolds.

                      This may sound corny, but I am nearly floored every time I see her face and eyes. She is perhaps one of the most beautiful mares I've seen, almost as lovely as Miss Zizi. (Even JMP, when he first saw Lady, instantly uttered, "Wow... I like the looks of her a LOT.")

                      The other interesting element is the rapport and connection she has with the other horses, particularly Zizi. Z is immensely picky about who she allows into her circle of acceptance, and appears to have no need for other four-footers (esp. mares). In other words, Z accepting someone/something has as much meaning to me as my "guard dogs" accepting a new person. Z and Lady bonded after only a few minutes stalled beside each other, and are actually nickering to each other now. Hmm.

                      One other thing-- and please do not judge me here. For anyone who believes in energy reading/aura/what have you... Lady has light/medium pink and pale yellow. Just saying.

                        Yay! Nice to hear she is so good! I will be sure to let her track trainer know when I am next there (he is a really good guy and has been repeatedly amazed and tickled by some of the people who have bought his horses and where they end up).

                        So people can see THE EYES, here is one of her track pictures:

                        OMG THE FACE!

                        Really excited to see how this mare does because she is really, really nice quality (admittedly, I know nothing, but IMO she oozes it!)
