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!

  • Check this CANTER Cutie

    So, I was (once again) surfing through the CANTER website and went back to check if this beautiful girl has been sold.

    Apparently she hasn't and they added many more pictures of her.

    I know there's been a thread about her already but could not find it.

    The link is
    http://www.canterusa.org/index.php?o...&directory=283

    and in that page you can find the link to the full set of pics.

    seems like she's been listed for a while and hasn't been sold, and in the process she seems like she's lost some weight.

    What do you all think about her??? her conformation?? any flaws that you can see???

    What would you consider her potential to be in the jumper ring?

    thanks for your help.

    I was just updating her pics a few minutes ago. I wouldn't say she is thin for a racehorse just fit as she has been running a bit more frequently now that she was in the winter so it is expected. She is a lovely horse and one of our volunteers is absolutely in love with her. She is a big snuggler and just loves to be spoiled. She has no soundness issues that have been reported. Her trainer just lowered the price a bit but he didn't want to budge much more than that.

      She's beautiful, and she looks to be in good flesh for a horse in work.

        One thing I would be concerned about is the length of her cannon bones in proportion to the front legs as a whole. They should be longer than the forearm and they are pretty short.

            I thought it was supposed to be the other way around, shorter cannons = better?

              You got that backwards. You WANT short cannons.

                The mare is gorgeous. Look at her shoulder angles.

                I never owned a bleeder. Can a bleeder take the pace of fox hunting in the first field?

                  cssutton - will you educate me, please? (Truly - no sarcasm or snark intended) What makes her shoulder angle so desirable? I understand that it is nice and long - but my immediate thought is that it is also upright. Will you please explain and reform my eye?

                    If you look at the second, third and fourth photo you can see her shoulder has a good slope.

                    Also, the angle from point of chest to the elbow is good. It also has good slope; not flat or nearly so.

                    There are a lot of good things in her confirmation. Nice neck, proper length for her body.

                    Smallish for me or I would try her.

                      FWIW, My dad's new(ish) foxhunter was a bleeder in his early racing days. He finished his first season (as the field master's horse leading the first field) without any problems at all. We do a lot of hill work to prep our hunt horses before the season, which I'm sure helped, but he never showed any sign of bleeding or lack of stamina all year!

                        Anyone know her breeding? Where she raced?

                        Thanks.

                          There is a theory that bleeding is related to less-than-ideal conditioning as a racehorse, for what ever reason - the follow-up theory is that a horse that bleeds on the track may never have a similar issue elsewhere.

                          I'm mentioning what I've heard (not what I know for fact),
                          Hidden Echo Farm, Carlisle, PA -- home of JC palomino sire Canadian Kid (1990 - 2013) & AQHA sire Lark's Favorite, son of Rugged Lark.

                            My mare is from the Shenanigans dam line and looking at the full set of pictures of this mare reminds of her. She has the same kind eye and my mare is always sensible, brave, and gives her all no matter what I ask of her.

                                Nice looking! And is the woman holding him exceptionally short, or is he really tall? (Anyone wondering, he's Call Webb. C-town horses names are in the photo extension name.)

                                    I like the lady better. Nevertheless, I really need for you to stop posting CANTER pics! I have reached my maximum number of horses.
