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 think it is a pony called Lucky For Me. She'd be like 18 or 19 now. She won the model at pony finals. She was from TX.

      The pony Lucky for Me has this info listed with USEF:

      95135 LUCKY FOR ME Foal Date: 1/1/1989
      Color: Brown Sex: M
      Sire: UNKNOWN
      Dam: UNKNOWN
      Membership Type: Life

        Wow! Spent a day reclaiming my tack room and came back to so many posts!

        I'd love more information on Lucky For Me. What else can you tell me?

        This I did not do an U/S or radiograph. It was pretty clear from a clinical diagnosis what I am dealing with. Before I agreed to take the pony, I already had a perfect retirement home for her. She will live with two other retired horses at a magnificient horse facility at a local school for kids that have a hard time in public school. My dear friend runs it and also lives there. They are very excited to add her to their small group. Her only requirement will be to stand and be brushed on the crossties with the kids.

        She is probably sound enough to do light walking/ trotting with a light child, but vet said we'd be headed for heartbreak if we really tried to put her in work. Her hoof wall is so soft, I bet you could put your finger through it, forget about a rock or jump rail or anthing else.

        The school is near by and I will see her often. She is finally starting to settle in here, so I think the sadness you see is just such uncertainty. I think she's been jostled around a lot.

          The USEF states that Lucky For Me is brown and your pony is a bay. I wonder if it is the same pony.


          • Original Poster

            Oh my gosh! This really sounds like her!!! I'm going to work on this!


            • #26

                            Ok, I posted two pictures, the picture of Lucky For Me and a front shot of my pony.. It's the first two in the album. Sure looks like an identical blaze to me... http://www.flickr.com/photos/24683318@N02/

                            Alright... You guys have done GREAT so far!!! Any one known anything else about Lucky For Me???? From Rumson, NJ?

                            THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                              If that's the same pony as is listed on USEF, she was showing not ALL that long ago (May 2007). Which means she likely had the injury/surgery in the not-too-distant past. If the leads you've gotten already don't go anywhere-- you might call some H/J vets in the area. Who knows, if her injury/surgery is unusual enough... they might remember her?!

                              Looks like a video of "Lucky for Me" with 2 owners ago can be purchased here...

                                That blaze is a dead on match. That's GOT to be the same pony.

                                  I think that is definitely her! That blaze along with the left front sock..... I mean there is no question....

                                  Wow what a cool thread this has been!

                                  And her name is rather appropriate, as seems she's landed with you after a brush with a potentially not-so-great fate!

                                    That is the same pony. Her blaze is an identical match, and she has a small left white ankle and a speck of white on her right front by her coronary band and if you look at the picture of her jumping, you can faintly see a hint of white on the front of her right front. It's very faint in the fence picture because it is a little blurry, but it is the same pony.

                                        I am so excited that we are getting so far with this mystery! Hopefully the past trainer can give us some more information.
