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!

  • TB Pedigree Analysis?

    Hi guys,

    Just got a new project pony today, he's in rough shape and will definitely need several months of TLC to get back in a good groove, but there's a lot I like about him. Hoping some of our smart pedigree peeps can tell me about his family-given potential...?


    His name is Notadream, but I'm calling him Ryan...hoping to inspire him to his full handsomeness...a la Ryan Gosling and Reynolds.

    Thanks so much!

    Since nobody has answered you, I will try.

    On top, your horse has Runaway Groom and Relaunch.
    On the bottom, there is Sadlers Wells, Roberto and Princequillo.
    All of these horses seem to produce good sport horses.

    I know that Vineyridge and Judybigredpony can chime in with their take on your horse.

    Do you have an photos that you can share?
    When in Doubt, let your horse do the Thinking!

        I see a lot of names that I like (and he should jump).....and love how he is put together in his photos. Some TLC and grass and he will be super nice. Just give it some time. He has a great shoulder and nice hind end. His neck will look good once you get his weight up. I got two that looked a lot worse in December and both look like show hunters now.

          Yay! That's my hope! Groceries, grass and time... I keep telling him he will be a different horse in 6 months. Hope he jumps! His legs looks good, clean under the rain rot and he moves out sound...

            I have had experience with both a Roberto son & a Relaunch son. Both scopey, effortless jumpers. The Relaunch gelding had 82 starts, retired sound. Super sturdy, huge hocks, strong willed. (I attribute his will with allowing him to survive at the track all those seasons). I would def have another 1 in my barn, & just hope he would be as athletic (& amusing). Good luck with your boy!!

              Cool, thank you! I am getting more excited every time someone posts

                He'll fill out nice...and lose the toes with a competent farrier. Please post more every 30 days or so, love to watch these.

                On the side of trivia, his paternal grandpa, Cherokee Run? Didn't he win the Belmont with Julie Krone up for the first female Classic win circa 91 or 92? Or am I having a senior moment?
                When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.

                  So glad a COTHer got this guy! I saw him on the OTTB Connect facebook page and thought he had potential. Have fun and keep us updated with his progress


                  • #10
                    Like the Roberto! In a couple of months you'll both be ready !

                      I really like his build as well, especially behind. And nice bone (I hate deer legs, LOL) and nice expression. I'm with Roma, I like big, beefy joints too! Plenty of good names on paper already mentioned. Roberto definitely seems to be one of the ones I have observed, along with Danzig and a couple others, to rather disproportionately reliably pass on great movement and sport ability, like a magic little jumping sperm, ha.
                      Life doesn't have perfect footing.

                        Thanks Didi! I figured the timing was good for both of us...

                        I gave him a long bath today, fungus shampoo and shortened his mane, he seemed very happy with the grooming and bathing as long as I used the softest brushes. Not so happy with the mane work...I cheated and used thinning shears, he seemed to think they were instruments of torture! Poor guy.

                        He's brave though, was worried about my dark cross ties, but just put one foot in front of the other and sniffed it out...eventer brain I think

                        Thanks for all the inputs everyone, I will definitely update with pics as we go!
