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!

  • Looking for Party Thyme, "Neiko"

    Neiko is a Chestnut Thb. 16.2, white strip on nose and one white sock (if I recall correctly). He would be approx. 22 years old. His papers would show that he was by The Party's Over, out of Spice Tree. I bred this horse (as farm manager) but never owned him. His owner sold him 9 or 10 years ago. He was originally sold to PA as an adult amateur hunter and was resold (I believe to the mid-west) when his owner developed more showing ambitions. He is a packer and a very safe horse, probably the nicest individual in terms of temperament that we ever bred. He is a very pretty horse with a long neck and lovely face and eye.

    When we bought property and built a barn here I started thinking about him and worrying about him. It would have been nice to bring him here with our other two retired show horses. I would appreciate any information about him and would be willing to give him a retirement home for life if he is in need. If he has passed I would like to know that as well, at least I could stop worrying about him.

    Thanks in advance.

    I was at the barn in central PA where he was being boarded when he was sold by his adult rider (won the locals at Harrisburg). I was under the impression he was sold to a woman in Canada to be used primarily as a pleasure horse. I think he was sold closer to 12- 13 years ago.

      Thanks for your reply

      WOW! That was pretty fast. The time frame fits with when he was originally sold and then resold. The dates are a bit hazy in my brain, it was a long time ago. I heard mid-west but that was third hand. You might know better than me. I didn't know that he won the locals at Harrisburgh, that's nice to hear. I not only bred him but also did most of his training and early showing. Do you have any info. on his owner or the BO/trainer?

      Let's hope for some more info. Fingers crossed.

        wow would you believe my best broodmare is by the Party' Over. She produced my best foals. One was the USEF HOTY as a yearling and 3 year old. Another was reserve in the zone and 3rd in the nation. I still have her here retired because I owe her a lot.

          More details?

          Can you tell me about the rest of the pedigree? Maybe there are more connections? Photos of the babies? The mare? We bred numerous mares to "Lennie." He was a very nice horse.


          • #6
            She was one of the Rockerfellers Mares. I will look up the rest of the pedigree

              Ok her dam was More Than Memories


              • Original Poster

                Memories won the broodmare class at Devon

                I saw her there and bought her for Fieldwood Farm. Her history was with Martha Sifton and Charlie Weaver. She had been pre green champion in West Palm and then foundered. She was beautiful and had a fabulous character and work ethic. She was sound to ride but would not stand the pounding of the first year division to qualify. After I got her, before she was bred I rode her at local shows and she was a big winner. She had a great jump and was totally uncomplicated. Your mare would be a full sister to The Party's Over who was 2 yr. old Horse Of The Year in 1990.

                  More than Memories is the dam of my mare and The Party's Over is her sire.

                    Sorry! I confused my "party's"

                    That would be Private Party, AHSA 2 yr. Old HOTY. By The Party's Over, out of More Than Memories. He was sold to Elizabeth Burke and shown by Olin Armstrong.


                    • #11
                      I think we are not on the same page. The Party's Over (Amacook Reg. name) is her sire and my mare was born in 1988. So the 2 yr. old in 1990 is a differant horse.

                        OMG please tell me more about him I have lost track since i sold him to betsee Parker

                              Tooo many Partys It has been a long day so I am finally get my head together


                              • Original Poster

                                Let's start again

                                The sire, The Party's Over was shown as a Working Hunter and an Amateur Owner Hunter to year end awards by Debbie Muhlig. His show name was as stated before. The mare, More Than Memories went to Debbie when Fieldwood was disbursed. I don't see how the sire of your broodmare could be other than The Party's Over, unless Debbie sold her to someone in between. That could have happened but I don't know how. "Lennie", The Party's Over was by Fabled Monarch.

                                  We need to get together some time and compare notes. Maybe we even know each other.


                                  • #18
                                    when things got disbursed that is how my mare fell out of the loop. I pulled her papers out just now and all is correct. So she is a full sister.

                                      Amacook, This has jogged my memory

                                      This might have been the Jockey Club name for the horse that was then registered with the AHSA as The Party's Over. It's familiar but I would only remember it from JC paperwork. You might be right about that.

                                        I will try to get in touch with the woman who owned him in the Harrisburg area to confirm where he wound up. I'm not sure if she rides at this time but I live a couple of miles from her family's business so I will ask there.
