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!

          I don't know... that grey Ms Cornerstone is *QUITE* a lovely type!!! I'd be interested to hear about her pedigree from the tb experts. I'm going to have to call the dealer and find out how much longer until my trailer is ready!!!!! I'm *really* sorry I couldn't go see Joe for Gin.

            I was at Penn today buying. As of Sunday morning Joe For Gin was sold, his trainer told me. I was a little bummed he was #1 on my list. I meant to ask here this weekend if any lucky COTHer got him.

            I am THRILLED with the horse we bought today, holy moly is he nice, his trot totally blew me away. It took me all of 2 minutes to think on it. This was a horse who was #10 on my original list, based only on CANTER pictures, which is why I always tell people to go look at one they think they might like.

            We saw a lot horses today, some very nice ones. It was really hard to pick one, until I saw the one we bought, he was the very last one we were to see too. Funny thing, last trip to CT, I bough the first one I saw

            If anyone is looking, I took a ton of pictures. I feel head over heels in love with one gelding, who is completely missing his tail (as in almost all of it, most of the bone, looks like a draft tail that was cut, but I was told it got caught in the gate he did have tail hair), good mover, clean legs, phenomenal brain, HUGE ears, he's a total pet, can't say enough about his temperment and him over all.

            Saw a lot that weren't listed, a lot of really nice event prospects. I had a blast, met another COTHer, AND, go to see a horse I used to gallop while we were walking back to the trailer. He looked amazing, it made me really happy, and he won his last start.

            I have to go back through all my notes, I think out of the CANTER horses listed this is who I saw:
            Secretfairways
            Barracuda Hayleigh
            Asturias
            Harley J
            I missed one whole barn, we were there at 9 and were there until 2 and still missed a lot I wanted to see.

            Ones already sold were (and had been before Sunday but not yet marked as sold), off the top of my head:
            Final Knockout
            Joe For Gin
            Sinatra
            Mont Juleps (same sire as my retired Prelim horse I really wanted to see him)
            Mister Millu

            There were more already sold, can't remember them though.
            WestWind Farms
            Love means attention, which means looking after the things we love. We call this stable management.

                    What about this guy. New as of today or so...
                    http://www.canterusa.org/index.php?o...&directory=302

                    I've owned 3 gray horses. I vowed NEVER again they're just too hard to keep clean. But then I see a guy like this and I get all woozy.

                        Ooh what did you think of Barracuda Haleigh?? She has the same sire as my 6yr old guy. She was one I was definitely considering going to see when I was still looking.

                          Yes, this is the grey I was referring to! She was my second pic after Joe for Gin, she's super nice! The only thing I didn't completely like was that her neck seemed a little on the short side to me. And the fact that she's grey... not a color thing, more because of the melanomas they get. But she IS niiice! I wish I could go out and look at her.

                            He is SO SO SO sweet, too Very cuddly and I think will make a great kids horse when he's educated His trainer loves him, says he tries his little heart out but just "can't catch up" He's another one that makes me wish I was better with money, heh.

                              I have a Joe For Gin sibling. A 2002 model by Go For Gin out of Mollie's Creek, a Vandlandingham mare. He is fantastic mover, great jump, big uphill build. Raced till 5 (49 starts) had year turnout, year hacking and just started "school" late last summer. Sweet, sweet horse - big guy ~17HH.

                              Starting year with couple schooling shows, then probably Chatt Hills in April. JC name is Don Soloman, new show name is "Gin Creek".

                              If Joe For Gin has same brain as my guy, to go with that nice picture, whoever got him, got a good one.

                                    I have a picture of him right after he finished racing. Was making plans to go take a look at him and they kept racing him one more time. Was told that a trainer in IA bought him. Thought it was an event rider. Ended up buying a little mare instead. That was January 2008.

                                      Yep, that trainer was my sister. He's been with us ever since. She just brought him down to Atlanta last week. He is now my project for a while... if we click, I'll keep him.
