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!

  • Trying to locate horse

    Since I'm about to graduate college (as in Friday), I'm interested in trying to relocate my old TB I had a few years ago.

    I bought him from a local vet who raced horses on the side back in 2002. Since then, I gave him to an old cowboy who was interested in him. I didn't have the time for him since I was about to go off to college. After that, I know that the cowboy gave him to someone else, and a few years later the cowboy died -- so I'm not exactly sure how to find out who has him currently.

    I don't remember his registered jockey club name, but I know if I saw it, I would recognize it. I, obviously, have his previous owner's name.

    My question is, is there anyway for me to find out previous horses that belonged to a specific race barn/person, so that I can find the horse's registered name? I know it's not essential to have to find him, but I'm just really interested in having it.

    Sorry this is so off-topic.

    Just an idea, but if you bought the horse from a vet, the vet probably has the horse's registered name in the horse's old medical records. That would help.

      Are you asking if there is a way to find out his JC name by his last know race trainer's name? Do you know the last year he raced and where? I'm not sure, but you can call the Jockey Club and ask, or post this on the racing forum and see if anyone there might have a quick answer for you. I hope you find him again.

        You can get all of the horses that raced for a particular trainer in whatever time frame you need it. I had several pulled at our local HBPA (Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association), it cost $8 but you can do it yourself from Equibase reports.

          Sorry, after reading my OP I know that seemed like an obvious answer to my question. I should've included the fact that I no longer know how to get in contact with the vet. He's out of practice and has since moved on.


          And, thank you everyone for your suggestions. I'm going to try equibase again and see if I can find anything.

            #1 if you know the name and previous practice area of the vet someone on COTH will know. Make a post that says, "Looking to find horse that belonged to x vet in Houston area" in the subject line and somebody will help you.

            #2. Post this in the racing forum. The racing folks helped me out a lot and all I had to give them was an old coggins with the horse's JC name on it (no tattoo) and the old track where he was. Somebody will know who the vet who had racehorses was.

              Ok Ali, you know I have an insane memory. Elvis' name was, I think, Granville's Winner or something quite similar to that. I think all of Dr K's horses were Granville or Grandville something due to his stallion.
              I just replied to you on FB about this. Anyway, I think one of the tech's at Fain and Smather's had him at one time. Penny or something, so might try researching that. I believe she lived across the street from the cowboy guy and he gave Elvis to her when he became sick.

                Granville's Winner is a TX bred who raced 4 times in TX. Under owner John Kahla (and trainer J Pennington) the last time out.

                      I have to agree, that was fast and an amazing memory RacetrackReject! OP, you may want to change the title to "trying to locate", as it sounds now it looks like you are trying to move a horse somewhere.

                        You know, I thought that. Thanks for confirming it! I'll change the title asap.

                              I should probably add that Alisonandshiloh and I lived in the same town and rode at the same barn for quite a while, like since she was 12..lol. I also used to care for her animals (horses, dogs, and cat) when they were out of town. We've been friends for years. I'm not some crazy stalker, I promise.

                              Ishi, you met A at Rolex way back when =D.

                              I had asked the Penny girl about Elvis one time as she works at the vet office I use for my dogs and horses, but I don't remember what she said except that she did not own him anymore.
