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!

  • Art Self Portrait (May Be Purchasing A Daughter Of His)

    Like the title says, I'm looking into purchasing a daughter of his. However, I can't find any info on him and I don't feel like pulling a sire report from AQHA ( haven't renewed my membership yet this year. Oops ) She is Appendix, 16.1 and 3 years old. She is very well broke, but still needs some training. Is very sound and very healthy. And the price I will pay for her is unheard of. But given the economy, I guess it should be expected. Anyway, can anyone out there please give me info and hopefully some pics of Art Self Portrait.
    THANK YOU!

    Contact Taylor Hanes (HanesPerformancehorses.com) he used to own Stretch. I have worked with several Stretch babies, they are all sweet and nice movers. Taylor can tell you more. He is also on Facebook all the time. Hope this helps.

        If you need the filly looked up PM me her name and I will look her up for you.
        Not sure why the filly is a fantastic price? Usually QH people price them for their market and if she is not for the AQHA that might be reflected in her price. Glad to chat with you about it as all I have ever owned are appendix QH's
        Love them!

          Just curious as to what you would be usuing her for - to show the AQHA circuit or the hunter circuit?

          The whole Art line are really well tempered horses which for me is a huge plus (although there are always exceptions.) A fun fact is that the Art lines usually have really big ears (i.e. look at Indian Artifacts). Arts Self Portrait is a really well known hunter under saddle horse, he is also really big so I would expect this girl to grow some more. I don't know if this would be a problem for you if you were looking to start something over fences right away. I would be really leary of the unheard of price. Although the market is down, QH people really don't play by the same rules when pricing their horses. I would pull a good vet check on her to rule out any joint issues. If she does turn out to be fully vet checked fine, then I say go for it. If something should ever happen to her, she will have good bloodlines to market her as a broodmare for the QH market.

          Really good advice to send an email to Taylor Hanes. I would be interested to know why he sold ASP in the first place (just a note Taylor Hanes sort of has a reputation for owning big HUS stallions who end up getting hurt. But this shouldn't reflect in the mare you are looking for since I don't think any of these injuries are genetic)
          I hope everything works out!

            So True....I have never gotten an appendix horse for an unbelieveable price and I like to buy them as 3 yr olds.....
            No presently looking OP so u r safe if you want me to look her up for you
            As the above states....QH people will pay 60K for an Undersaddle horse that has been successful so gotta check out a bargain bigtime, please.
            I only show USEF so I look for the ones with a really big step

              Taylor stood ASP at a farm down the road from me, here in Colorado a few years ago. I liked his balanced conformation and he seemed to have a great temperment - good swirl. Taylor bought him cheap as an injured yearling and I can say that the fact that this horse showed sound US with that scarred front leg is amazing. Found the video; he did show at the height of the peanut roller era so you cannot really see his movement.

              http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZNFQYg2X18

              Taylor stood him for free that first year to well bred mares as a way to promote an unknown stallion, so I would not be concerned with the low price of that filly, her owner may not have paid a stud fee, and there are a lot of those free breeding ones out there. I personally would buy a filly by him, if I liked her.

              They do not get hurt on his watch - he buys the ones hurt or NQR some way as colts because they are low priced, then he seems to reserect them as show horses or studs, gets a stud record established for them and sells them. Seems to be his business niche.

                  Well, she is being sold because they have no more money to invest in her. It's sad, because she can move. When I put the deposit down on her tomorrow, I'll send you all the You tube link of her being ridden. I'd love to have some feedback. I know the line pretty well, and I actually fell in love with anything out of Artful Move primarily through Indian Artifact lines. And I wouldn't mind breeding her to Skys Blue Boy or Luke At Me when that time comes. But I come from the world of saddleseat, and reining, and cutting. SOOOO weird. But all I do is study bloodlines and ride. And work, too. Bah. Anyway, I'm only paying $800.00 for her. She's already been x-rayed, checked by 2 vets (1 was mine and the other was hers) and the only thing she needs is a coggins. She's been started slow, but she walks, trots, lopes, is nice and collected. They trail ride her occasionally and she's never bucked or reared or bolted etc. (so they say). She's been started over jumps. She's everything I'm looking for.However, I would definately love anyone's opinion of her when I post the link because the deal isn't final until I go to pick her up. And I want to show HUS, but I really want to use her to jump. I'm new to the sport, but I have been jumping for years. I've just primarily been riding saddlebreds and I'm ready for a new challenge.

                    No wonder I couldn't find anything. I was tryping in Art Self Portrait. On that note, I'm leaving the office for the night.

                      Well, I have an Artful Move baby and I love him to pieces. Great mind. He was doing the AQHA circuit but that's not my interest. I do Hunters and Eventing w/ him.

                      Can't wait to see pics and video!

                        LOVE his movement and the movement of the relatively few babies I've seen. If you don't buy her...send her info to me!

                          plumcreek - sorry I wasn't aware that Taylor bought the horse already injured, I just know that almost all of his studs have had injuries.

                          Back to this mare. I think she sounds really nice and congrats on fidning a wonderful horse. My only concern is that if you plan to show her AQHA HUS she won't be tall enough. Now I know that 16.1 for a 3 year old is tall in most breeds, but AQHA she would be considered short. an HUS horse is more16.3 and up for AQHA. I know that it should be based on movement but QH goes more on "pretty and what's in" (that's just my opinion). I've seen numerous people who have 16 hand horses that move really really well, but they don't eve nget looked at due to the size in the HUS ring.

                          For jumping I think she will be a knockout. I am looking forward to seeing her video. She sound superb and for 800 bucks you've found yourself quite the catch! I hope you have a lot of fun with her and much success!

                                No, I'm not. I found something else with a little more training. She hasn't been ridden since this summer and the PM I received from Parrot helped me realize how much work she may need. But then again, for $750.00, it;s a good deal. But I could spend more on something that would need less time with my trainer. And every time I watch her video, I see more of a pleasure prospect even though she moves out quickly. I think it;s her conformation. But to make a long story short, I'm going to look at a couple of saddlebreds (My Niche). There's a really nice looking colt out of Its Hammer Time here in KC that they have for sale for $1500 obo. He;s been for sale for a while. Helooks like he would make an excellent jumper. He's built for it. Plus, he's super necky, so I'd love to see him turned out as a western horse. IDK .. I'm going to go check him out and see if he'd be worth it.
