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!

      All i can say is he responded to an ad for my horse as a pasture pet. Didnt want to come see him, just wanted him dropped off to live in a field with an older percheron. Thats all i know.

      I did not send him there, as he would not provide farrier or veterinary references.

        Try contacting Colleen Cheehalk at http://www.borrowedfreedom.org/ - She's in that neighborhood & may know of the farm.

                      This guy is BAD NEWS!

                      Hi All,

                      I am new to these forums, but upon researching this man in reference to the sale of my horse, I came across this particular thread. I realize this is an old thread, but I feel it is only right to notify other horse owners that this man who goes by "Rob Allen" (which is not even his real name; his real name is Rob Finch. Allen is his business partners last name) tried to scam me into selling him my mare for breeding purposes. Rob apparently thought he could get away with giving me a fake name in an effort to stunt my reference checking. He sent me WORD FOR WORD the email that was sent to the other user who posted above. DO NOT GET INVOLVED WITH HIM AT ANY COST, and PLEASE do not allow him to buy or take any of your horses. As soon as I requested references, he was gone. Rob is still actively trying to scam people into letting him take their horses under false pretenses, and thankfully because of this thread I DID NOT allow him to come anywhere NEAR my mare! She now has an excellent home. Just trying to warn other horse owners, and hopefully protect some of the horses out there for sale. Thanks for letting me share.

                          Karen C. what horse are you looking for info on? i did have dealings with this guy. a girl had a 12 yr old arab that wasn't broke and a add was placed for her for sale or trade for a good trail horse. this rob responded to the add with a horse for trade for the mare. that he wanted to use her as a brood mare. said her issues weren't a problem that she'd only be standing out in the pasture being a mom. he had a QH gelding he wanted to trade for her. we decided it sounded like a decent trade. he told us that the qh had slight arthritis but walked out of it with in a few feet. we took the mare up and seen a horse tied to a wall in a indoor. there was said to be about 32 horses there and some did have foals. I can say that the horses there all looked good. but the one he wanted to trade us had a cloudy eye. he said it was scratch and they've been treating it. the horse was very good natured and we left the mare there and took the QH home. He wanted me to bring him back aafter i told him what the vet said about the eye. we refused and told him he can live his days out with us. but i did find out that in less then a week of him having the mare he sent her to the sales. i was ticked when i found that out. but in no way will he ever get the qh back cause he'd prolly only take him to the sale to

                              Wish I found out sooner!!!

                              I unfortunately was scammed by this man as he too, the first time he contacted me, played the exact same story word for word as he wanted a pasture mate for his horse. I would not come down on my price. Then I lowered my price and he contacted me again as wanting a horse for his dad. Never wanted to come see him. His references checked, However we made arrangements to have him picK Cole up on Sunday and he called Saturday and said he would like to come this day and I said call me with a time as I was busy, He never called and just showed up.I was not home and my husband was caught off guard by him arriving.He did not get his contract signed and worse yet accepted a check. I made a photo copy of the check (thankfully) and unfortunately my pup ate the check.I called and left messages several times to get a replacement check and to check on Cole.Finally 3 weeks later I called the police. I did not want the $$ I wanted the horse. I spoke with the judge and I had to follow proper proceedings to repossess the horse.Meanwhile the Police contacted him and told him he had a week to send a certified check and low and behold it was a bad check.The bank confirmed that the previous photocopied one had insufficient funds as well. I was going to repossess the horse and he sold the horse to someone else and I could not take the horse as she sold him to another person.(All within a month's time)I then received a money order for the horse as I
                              threatened with criminal proceedings.The woman was very mean to me and asked why I was making a big stink over a backyard horse. I wish I had known about this website sooner.In Susquehanna County Transcript he was charged with writing bad checks to a man named Mark Lockhart for a horse.He would like to press slander charges against me and has threatened me with such,however the Judge,DA, and State police are my witness that these events occurred.I contacted all the local auctions to keep their eyes out for Cole and when I contacted New Holland I was informed that Rob Finch was not allowed at New Holland for writing bad checks.

                                Yes, this &quot;dealer / scammer&quot; IS BAD NEWS

                                Rob Finch sold a local stable a mismatched driving pair of Belgians. He promised through texts that there was nothing wrong with them and that they have been driven in the past two months, together. However, upon pickup the operators noticed that one of the horses had a watery/tearing, cloudy eye. The vet saw the horse a day or two after the two were settled in and immediately began treating it.

                                When asked, Rob Finch never replied to email, texts or facebook messages.

                                The stable also believes that they are mismatched.

                                The horses' eye will not be savable as it has gone too long without treatment.

                                Rob may not seriously think that his outdated, scamming biz tricks will work in the modern world. This is not year 1930.

                                There are serious consequences for scamming the public this severely and yes, they are going to do something about it to set an example for anyone who even thinks about selling injured horses to other parties.

                                Dates horses were picked up (texts to prove it): December 29th, 2015
                                Dates Finch was informed of the injured eye (texts to prove it): January 3rd, 2015

                                And no, horse was not injured on the trailer. That injury was treated at the farm for over a month, with vets suggesting scraping of the eye's surface for over $2,000. The photos Finch provided were from a distance, and never up close.
                                The team also never driven together.

                                  I went there once. It just didn't seem quite right. They seem to roll through enough money, but there's a revolving door for horses. You never seem the same ones in the pasture when you drive by a few times. I never went back or had anything to do with the place.
