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.

  • Tiznow (TB) babies--bragging thread

    Well, I was busy and away from the computer for a few days, and came back to see that more people had posted on the Equibone thread about how awesome their Tiznow babies are. So rather than hijacking the Equibone thread any longer, I'd make a new one for just the Tiz-zys.

    This might go better in a different forum, but I thought since it started here in Horse Care under Equibone, it would get the attention of the people who were posting there.

    So for anyone who has a horse by the great Tiznow, post away. And links to pictures are a requirement. Just kidding, but, seriously, pictures are really, really strongly requested.

    We have a stallion by Tiznow. I've posted about him anytime anyone has asked, but I never get bored talking about him. I just adore him. His name is Tiz Brian, but his barn name is Sparky. We actually bought him for breeding race babies (my husband's passion is specifically racing), but once we got him home and fixed him up a bit, he had been in pretty bad condition, he turned out to really have dressage quality movement (which is more my passion). He has the BEST disposition and is super athletic. We bred him to 4 mares last year, so have 4 babies by him due this year. The first two are due the second and third weeks of February (SOON!) and the last two are both due the 3 third week of May. I'm so excited. The one due the thrid week of Feb. is out of my favorite (heart horse) mare. My husband keeps threatening to get my doctor to prescribe me Xanax for that one. LOL

    I ride him sporadically, since we don't have anywhere with really decent footing, and he is always awesome, even if I haven't ridden him in 3 or 4 weeks. I can't wait to actually have him in regular dressage training one day soon! In the meantime, we do a little ground work, hack around the farm on the days that the weather and time gods coordinate, groom, and hand graze.

    Here's links to his pictures on my Facebook page.

    So who else has Tiznow babies? What's their dispostion like? What do you do with them? Pictures?

    I love love love Tiznow babies. I work the sales in KY on the track and I have absolutely LOVED everything Tiznow. They typically have good brains, like 'their job', and are usually sweet natured. Last November we had at least 2 Tiznows that we showed to potential buyers as if he had done it his whole life. And every day at 2pm one colt would nicker and go down for a nap and you could go curl up with him for his nap time.

      I have a Tiznow mare, now coming 5yo. I bought her as an eventing prospect. She's got a fabulous brain- very smart and figures things out and extremely sweet! I think she'd like to curl up in my lap sometimes! She's quite athletic, too. I was out hand walking her about a year ago and walked her up to bank jump so I could check the footing. I completely didn't expect her to jump up the bank, but before I knew it, she sat down and sprung up the bank all on her own!! This past summer I started jumping her a bit under saddle and she was so quick to figure things out and was absolutely foot perfect! I'm taking her training very slow, and fixing her feet, so we haven't done much, but I think she's got great potential! I'll have to post some pictures of her.

        Everyone I've talked to about Tiznow and his babies, the first comment is without fail about how incredibly kind AND smart they are. All of the ones I've personally met were really athletic too.

          Ahh I'm glad to find this thread because the one tiznow I raised was a mental basket case. I'm glad to hear he wasn't the norm. The interesting thing is that we ended up keeping him up until kee apr and once he got into a training regimen he buckled down and we started getting good comments from the conditioner. He was a big beautiful ATHLETIC individual. He's made one start so far, showed some potential.

            Shelia, I met your guy before he left the track & absolutely adored him! Can't wait to see his babies in the spring.

              Hi Mia! Did you look at buying him or were you involved in the racetrack world? Just curious.

              His first two babies are due Feb 16 and Feb 23, so could arrive as early as Feb 2 and Feb 9. I'm so excited I just can't see straight! The foal due on the 23 is out of my heart horse mare, so doubly excited on that one.

                  We just had our first foal by our Tiznow stallion, Tiz Brian. It's our mare, Polly's, 3rd foal. Here's pics of the filly, barn name Sophie.

                      Thank you, Mia. We are pretty excited. Hoping his next two are just as nice.

                      Just as an aside, since you knew Tiz Brian before, I just measured him the other day, and he's now 16.1 hands. He was just a shade under 16 when we bought him.

                        It's funny how some of them grow. Mine was just under 15.2 when I brought him home, that summer he grew 2 inches.

                        Can't wait to see the photos of the next two! If you don't mind, I'd like to share the baby pics with a friend who also met your guy at the track & liked him as much as I did.

                          Sheila and Mia- How old is Tiz Brian and Mia- your guy? My girl is coming 5 and I think 16.1. I'm hoping she tops out at 16.2 before all is said and done. (I'm tall)

                            Well, Tiz Brian's second foal was born Friday am! Out of my favorite mare. I'm so excited. I just really love this horse. So far his babies are getting his "Tiznow disposition". Here's pictures!

                            VTShale, I didn't see your question before. We bought Tiz Brian as a late 4 year old (December). He was just a hair under 16 hands. I remeasured him just a couple months ago, as a late 5 year old, and he was a hair over 16.1. I just remeasured him again a few weeks ago, as early 6 year old, and he's close to 16.1 1/2. I really don't expect him to grow anymore than that.
