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!

  • Interesting Craigslist Horse with sire Hawaii in pedigree

    NOT my horse nor do I have any connections.
    Saw this ad on the Lexington, KY Craigslist


    Isn't Dorothy Crowell's Molokai by Hawaii?
    Things happen for a reason...so when I reach over and smack you upside the head, just remember...you gave me a reason!

    I think he'd make a cute gelding.

        Well of course, because you know, it is so hard to find a stallion with Mr. Prospector and Native Dancer in his pedigree.

        On the positive side, at least the seller is unloading before the horse gets any thinner. If he is as well behaved, pleasant to ride, and sound as advertised he could be a good deal for someone. He is a very nice looking horse, I think.

        Craigslist ad says:
        6 yr old TB,...need to sell - $800 (nky)

        got this guy with intentions of breeding him, i have another stallion too and it just isnt working out having 2. he is broke to ride, handles well, loads, ties, good with feet, stands for mounting. He is sound. He has really nice movement. Possible polo prospect, eventing. good confirmation, stands between 15.1 & 15.3 hh. son of Northern fleet, has Mr. Prospector and Native Dancer! EXCELLENT BLOODLINE....This guy got overlooked. Papers in hand. MUST SELL!!! NEED HAY!! if interested call or text 606_748_9486

            Poor guy, looks so sad.

            Great tearjerker photo.

            Makes me glad I live faaar away.
            Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

            Remember the horse does all the work, we just sit there and look pretty.


            • #7
              It's hard to find stallions in the 15.1-2 hand range, too. Can't imagine why.... I think there was something I heard about once called Supply and Demand....?

              • #8
                I saw him too while browsing CL and the Hawaii bloodline caught my eye. I was debating posting him here since he has his jewels and I figured the ad would get some negative commentary .

                Anyway, I think he's got a great engine to get him around a cross country course. He'd also look better with work/correct muscling, and he'd make a great gelding.

                I'd take a chance if I were in the market. Bet they'd let him go pretty cheap.

                  My daughter says she is sick of hearing me say this, but if you are going to go to the trouble of taking a picture, why not at least try to put the horse in a position that might flatter him?


                  • #10
                    And only been 4 years since he did anything.......

                    Oh yes let's run and snap up the half starved guy and pay you for starving what was surely once a freebie. Nice.

                    • #11
                      I didn't think he looked starved at all. I think he looks like a young stallion coming into spring with mares nearby. Yes, he needs weight but he isn't starving at this point.


                      • #12
                        I think he is really cute. If I weren't on a no.more.horses moratorium, I'd definitely take a look (and geld him immediately).

                          And at least the owner made an ATTEMPT to take good pictures. C'mon guys, good intentions, blah blah blah, but aside from one crappy pic, you can tell the owner is trying to show different angles.

                            Oh boy. Dibs? Yeah, dibs. Gah. Very impressed with his dam's line. Vice Regent and Hawaii in there... cross-country machine.

                            If someone can find a stallion or mare for me with Ward Eight in the pedigree, I'll uncall dibs.

                                Very cute with an ass that doesn't quit. Someone needs to get him! He just needs a little brain surgery and he'll be good to go!

                                Here's his pedigree.

                                  Although in the Hawaii world, this guy would probably be next on my list http://www.dreamhorse.com/show_horse...rse_id=1861217

                                    I look at this guy and I don't see anything not to like. Some of the comments on this thread don't make sense to me but maybe I just don't know very much or have a good eye for a horse.

                                    Of course he doesn't need to be a stallion, and I'm not a fan of those bloodlines for breeding (although Silver Deputy was a very attractive ND type), but this horse looks like a decent type to me. If he's 15.2hh, that's perfectly fine for most women and for most riders of reasonable balance and skill.

                                    His weight/condition is also fine for a horse that's not in work. His coat has some shine to it and his mane and tail are thriving.

                                    The fact that he's still intact and can stand tied like that around all that junk and other horses speaks to him having a good brain.

                                    I think he's a nice one. I hope he finds a good home.

                                    But again, maybe I have no eye for a horse.
