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!

      Wait a minute! He has a female identity as well? Houseguests and all?
      I've got news for him. If he sues anyone over in SC, he's very likely to get one or more of my extensive family on the jury. He wouldn't want that!

      Oh wait! He's suing people for "liable" not libel, so he will have his suits dismissed. he's liable to lose in court.

        According to my intel he's moved to cows. I can ask my friends in the Clemson area but I doubt it considering its a very much lady's only sport. I suspect based on his MO that he is fishing for dirt on the poster on this thread who brought up barrel horses.

I HAVE NOT SOLD A HORSE IN OVER 18 MONTHS, AND I AM CONTINUALLY HARRASSED BY THE MEMBERS OF THIS WEBSITE VIA PHONE, EMAIL, AND POSTS HERE. This post will serve as PROOF in a court of law, that I requested these actions cease. Any additional harrassment or liable posts, will give cause to issue further legal action. I know the moderator will delete this post, and leave all the liable statements intact, but this will serve as proof of the corruption of the moderator, as well as the members of this group. ONCE AGAIN THIS IS A FORMAL REQUEST THAT ALL HARRASSMENT AND LIABLE AGAINST ME CEASE AT ONCE, OR RISK FURTHER LEGAL ACTION. THIS HAS GONE ON FOR 4 YEARS, BUT IT IS GOING TO END NOW. PLEASE STOP HARRASSING AND SLANDERING ME.

            Ya know I was gunna let this thread die a slow painful death.

            But Mr. Moore has decided to take his arguement to Facebook with multiple messages privately towards me. I will say, for the most part, its been a very grown up, sane, rational conversation. And in the world of multimedia I understood his worries about being able to get any kind of meaningful job the way employers can do a google search on anyone. 4 COTH posts are what come up first. He insisted that I delete this thread. I have tried several times to explain to him that once a thread is commented on it can NOT be deleted. He begs to differ. It is black and white on the FAQ page (sorry Mods for the unneccessary PM) and can be found using Google.

            I made him a deal, to delete everything I've said. Which is all I have the capacity to do. If he deletes every ROR he wrote about me. I got no response.

            So this is my public statement that I have attempted to make a fair and agreeable deal with Mr. Moore. I can NOT delte this thread. It does however serve as proof of libel against him towards me.. thanks to pinkpony who screen saved the CL ad earlier. And while I've said several times the OP was not written mailiciously, and I have proof, everything he's publically said about me was done for mean-spirited reasons. If Mr. Moore would let this all die out and stop with alias, both on Facebook and COTH, his name would not be spoken anymore.

            Good job Mr. Moore. You bumped your own thread 4 times in 2 weeks. And you want to be done with it?

            • Tatabra Lulu

              I saw this post on FB of Tatabra Lulu today and thought I'd do some research on this mare and luckily I found this post. Anyone knows this seller at all?



              • Tatabra Lulu

                Hey all, after googling my horse's registered name, I found this lovely thread about this rather shady dude and Tatabra Lulu being in a questionable situation. I'm glad to say that I am her owner and that she will be with me for the rest of her days! I bought her from KMK Equine who the last person linked to, she's currently in Colorado with me at the Air Force Academy. I can guarantee that she is well loved and fat and happy

                If anyone could provide a history on her, that would be great. I know she was imported as a 3yo, but there's a big black hole in her past up until I found her ad on a group on FB and bought her. Reading through this thread really hasn't shed any light on her past hahaha, although it seems tangled and would explain why she came to me with so many trust issues!

                Thanks in advance everyone




                Pictures always help!


                • Zombie thread!! LOL SO glad to hear she is safe and happy!!
