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!

  • New Prospects for Critique!

    So I've got two rising 3 yo's coming down from Penn National this week (just a few more days!) and I thought I'd post their pedigrees and pix on here and see what everyone thought!

    Here is the colt who is approx 16h now:
    http://www.pedigreequery.com/seattle+jones2\
    http://www.facebook.com//profile.php...&id=1493197238

    And the filly who is approx 15.2h (not a problem if she doesn't grow as my current UL prospect is 15.2h):
    http://www.pedigreequery.com/pickels+pub

    Thoughts?

    I love the colt! He is lovely. It is hard to tell from the filly's picture how she is put together. She looks a little funny to me behind, but it may be the picture. She is a fashy girl!

      Yeah, unfortunately that was the best pic they had of the filly, but something about her appealed to me.... I am not usually interested in colts but I really liked the way that boy was put together!

        I really like them both! Can't wait till they get here, I bet they're gonna be fun! And I like the colt better, but I typically don't like mares.

        Course it does give me an excuse to hang out at the barn all day without Aaron freaking that I'm riding still.

          Filly is better than the colt IMO - both look like fun. Good luck with them!

              I couldn't see a picture of the filly, but I wasn't a big fan of the picture of the colt. I thought he was quite thick through his neck and shoulder (is he intact?) and looked weak behind. Maybe that will improve over time.

              Did you buy them through Shelly? I bought Rhodey from Penn National.

              Best. Decision. Ever.

                  The colt is a bit heavy in the neck (yes, he is intact) but is very nicely put together and extremely sensible, smart, nice mover. He's fairly uphill and light on his feet. He's a real pussycat, after a week and a half in a stall with no turnout (he got kicked and was sore right after he got here) he came out for his first longe work and just trotted around no big deal.

                  The filly is a bit more unevenly built but has a HUGE butt and hey, is only three (not even) so will hopefully get a bit higher in front. She has a really fabulous attitude and is a barn favorite. She's already longeing in side reins and learning to reach down onto the bit!

                  Will post pix asap.

                  I didn't buy through Shelley (though I have before), they come from Stephanie Beattie's racing stables.

                              Jennifer,
                              Just curious due to another thread. Did you vet and do rads or just flexions?


                              They are both really nice looking horses. Love the gelding, but I prefer a plain bay. I am sure you will have no trouble getting interest in the mare. She is flashy. Enjoy your projects.

                                Yep, they were the giveaways. Love it!

                                I did not vet them, no.

                                    I retrained a lot of TBs so I sort of know something about lines as I am sure you do too - the colt is from a great line - any horse closely related to Slew was so great - nice moving - sensible - good health.... he looks classy to me. I really like him. I would never buy off pedigree but whenever I see a Slew prod I am expecting a nice, classy Thoroughbred. Classy mentally as well as physically.

                                    A lot of the Storm Cat line are a bit hot from my experience but a horse is an individual and sometimes hot is not bad if its the right hot. I like that she looks loose - like her shoulders and hips will be athletic. Not sure if that makes SENSE but that is what I get from looking at her.

                                    They both look like fun projects and have good willing looks in their eyes which is so much of the issue eventing.

                                    GOOD LUCK!

                                      I've only known a few Storm Cat babies but they were terrible

                                      However the ones I knew were all BIG, tall, lanky and unbalanced and she doesn't look anything like that.

                                      I give you props for taking on horses that need good homes. My 2 Penn OTTBs were my favorite horses of all time.

                                      Good luck!

                                        I love them both!

                                        FWIW I recently got one with Storm Cat in the same place in the pedigree:
                                        http://www.pedigreequery.com/oakridge+star

                                        So far (still getting to know him), my sense is that he is going to be pretty hot, but not unbalanced (he is tall though). I picked him mostly for his balance and gallop.
