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!

        Someone posted his name is Denali. Or was. Can someone look that up?

          Yes!! need an update!!

            It's just after 5 p.m., so pour yourself a cocktail and raise your glass to Charlie. He is safely home in Northern Michigan with a sweet new owner who thinks he walks on water. He hasn't been under saddle yet due to all the rain, but he is a gentle giant.

            A name came up on the Coggins and I was able to verify that Charlie was in fact a jumper, although this person thought he was older. We still have no idea how old he is or where he came from prior to three years ago. If anyone knows this horse, please let me know. He is so big, how can someone not know him?

            I haven't heard the name Denali.

            I will not be clicking through to anymore Camelot listings. That's right, DCM, don't even think about it. My silly filly just whispered in my ear that she does want to go to a winter circuit after all. Doesn't she know that horse social work does not pay well at all?

              Yay! Glad to hear the big guy is 'home'. Tell his owner about his fan club here on COTH, please!

              And no, I won't promise to refrain from posting Camelot listings when the 'urge' hits me. Look how this one turned out. Justice, you are an angel and my hero. Thank you thank you thank you!

              PS - have fun with your silly filly this winter. Is PP going to ride her again? His home barn is a short hop from where I live these days.

                could his be Charlebois? Buddy Brown showed him in Florida during WEF in the 1980ies

                  I remember Charlebois in the mid 80s- so he'd be 32ish. I wouldn't think that this would be right..

                  It's 2016. Do you know where your old horse is?


                  • #69
                    Definitely not Charlebois, but appreciate the brainstorming. DCM, I don't think the requisite 12 weeks of WEF is happening for me, although it is a nice dream. That is a long time for me to be horseless since I'll be staying home to take care of my human children. I am trainerless here in the Midwest, and and a little too chicken to try out a new venue with someone I don't know. I do need to find someone to horse show with here but have not done anything about it yet and heading into the holidays with small children is not a great time to start shipping three hours for lessons.

                    It seems crazy, but I'm thinking of going old school. Since I'd only be able to go for a week at best anyway, I am hoping to send her to Mark in California. She's short, she's a chestnut, she's a baby, it will be like I never left the barn. It's a long way, but once she's there, I won't have a worry in the world. And, it will give me a great chance to reconnect with my California clique!

                      I really enjoy Charlie's updates. And if his new mommy would like to keep us updated, we would love to see them [hint hint]

                        Did I miss something or did you not share the name you found on the Coggins? Also, was there no age listed on the Coggins?


                        • #72
                          is there a picture posted somewhere of Charlie ? I am glad he has someone to love him and to love I am tearing up

                            I asked the new owner for permission to post a couple of her pictures... they are so stinkin' cute together.

                              You said that a COTHer gave the horse to a "forever" home recently - and they took him to Camelot. Can you (or her) please "out" this person so that no one else gets tricked into placing a horse with them?


                              • #75
                                You know, the whole thing is kind of weird. According to the name that turned up on the coggins, the horse was sold, and turned up at Camelot (again) a week later because he was so big. What the person whose name was on the Coggins told me did not gel at all with what the previous owner told me, but both were kind and helpful. You have to understand, this horse is in fact, huge. Finding a bridle, halter or bit that fits him is a task unto itself. There seems to be a lot of mystery surrounding the horse, but everyone who knows him has made an effort to contact me to tell me what a very nice and safe horse he is. The person on the coggins actually laughed when I said I had heard that he could be spooky.

                                For his new owner, it doesn't matter where he came from or who he was in his former life, it just matters where he is and who he is now. And for Charlie, I think that will make all the difference.

                                With his new owner's permission... picture time!

                                  I really shouldn't read these at work--now sniffling at the front desk--not very professional

                                  This certainly made my whole day!

                                    AWESOME. SO SO SO Glad that he has a great home! I bought my guy from Camelot a year ago, so there are soft spots in my heart for people who give these guys a forever home!!

                                      Short girl. TALLLLLL horsie. She looks happy and he looks like such a nice old gent--thank you for facilitating such a happy pairing, Justice! (And when you say 'north' in Michigan, what general vicinity are you talking? When we lived downriver, Mt Pleasant was 'up north' and is for me down near South Bend now, when we moved to central 'up north' meant more like Traverse City. He might want a blankie or three if that's the 'north' in question...he must be a HUGE size...)

                                        The girl is 5'9"! He wears a 90 blanket, and the oversize bridle I bought for him fits on the last hole. At least, they think it will fit, because they can't find a bit that will fit him! Poor girl may end up riding on the Foxfield Drill team out in California with a wire around his neck. This is the first time I've ever bought a horse and had it be bigger than advertised. By a full hand!

                                        What a doll though, and he's found the perfect person. Don't you just love it when everything works out? He's in Sutton's Bay, near Traverse City.
