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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

  • *Update* Long Shot - Blue Eyed Paint Mare, Ontario Canada?

    This is a total long shot but something told me to put it out there... does anyone know this paint mare?

    Two blue eyes, roughly 14.3- 15 hands.


    Supposedly from Ottawa Area. Purchased by a family looking for something for their disabled daughter last month and horse is too much for them. Apparenly paid $2500 for her...


    My sister picked her up for a song with plans to mke her a kids horse and just looking for some history.

    Is she a Paint or a pinto? If she's a Paint, how do you know? I ask because you can trace her breeding if she's a Paint and work from there, maybe starting with the breeder.

      Paint as per the current seller though they did not get any papers. So really we don't know :S

      Tried google searching the photo, apparently they are from when previous owner sold her, nothing yet

        If you have any additional information, I could try to help - but there are a ton of paint horses like this out there.

        How old is she? Do you know any breeding at all? Any knowledge of who the previous family purchased her from?
        Veni vidi vici. With a paint pony, nonetheless.

          About how old and is there any inclination to gait? Meaning not trot for the intermediate gait.

            We have next to nothing, terrible I know... the people who bought her and who my sister purchased her from were the least horse-y people I know. It was a strange situation, oh which I wont comment.

            From what they seller's (that we got her from), were told, was that she was used as a trail horse but was too small.
            These people were selling her as a 13hand pony when in fact she is 15.1/2, they say she is six years old.

            Mare is pretty bum high, breeding maybe? Though, has a massive reaching stride in the trot and canter. Definetly offers the trot initially.

            Naughty habit of flipping tongue over the bit.


            Mare is crazy sweet, walked onto the trailer like an old pro. My sister just couldn't leave her.

              Well, your description fits, except the age -- The mare I have in mind should be closer to 10-12, maybe even 14, and she is a gaited mare. Was registered TWH and was sold from somewhere in Eastern U.S. to a lady in Canada because the Seller said she could not have babies.

              Guess what, the mare foaled in early spring after the lady bought her.--- for a trail horse. It turned out the lady was not as much of a courageous rider as she let on, because she ultimately sold the mare (after some "formal" trail training by someone). The mare was big motored, plain and simple --- not a mean bone in her, just a lot of go.

              From what I remember that lady sold the mare to a dealer who had a buyer in mind and that's all I know.

              IF this is the same mare, I am ecstatic she has hopefully found a life long home because she is a great horse with excellent Walking Horse breeding. I was REALLY P.O.'d the lady paid to have her shipped to Canada, then ended up selling the mare because she was too much horse --- the lady was a great caregiver but I could see the horse was getting ruined because people were trying to "fit a square peg into a round hole".

              That lady had told me who was on the mare's papers and it turned out, the stallion was a drop-dead gorgeous TWH from a town 20 minutes from me. I cannot remember the stallions name, nor the owners. They were ethical breeders and have both since passed away. I remember seeing a picture of the TWH stallion at a horse show with a girl about age eight showing him -- alone

              IMHO, IF this is that mare from a gentle standpoint, she should be good with older children with riding experience but too much horse for little ones unless she is ponied by a good rider on the other horse

              Also, if you see the mare possibly has an intermediate extra gear in there, I can find out who the stallion's breeder was. At that time, I worked part time for the insurance company who had their farm and autos insured. She will remember their name and I can go from there to try and find the stallion's picture on the Net. They were a lovely and well liked couple in my county, especially in the old timey Walking Horse world -- back when there was still ethics

                    No way! This is super interesting! She is an especially large mover. I would not have expected it based on conformation. I will have to get my sister to see what she offers.

                    She is very sweet. Has a bit of a habit of putting her tongue over the bit which we will have to solve.

                    It is ironic that you mention this age, as we had someone look at her teeth for age and they mentioned 10-13.


                    She is in a good home now, the people couldn't get rid of her fast enough so my sister just took her. She has a bit of abscess in her foot that came out this past week but as soon as that is healed up we will get some footage of her moving

                      I have a Paint mare (different pattern and color), but my first thought would be, spectacular trot = not a Paint!

                      If she is doing sliding stops and rollbacks in turnout and her eyes light up when she sees her first cow, that's more stock horse behavior.

                      Some good conformation shots might help us guess Paint vs TNW.

                        I also got thinking, this mare might possibly be the filly that was born to the mare I am referencing, as I know the lady also sold her, after a period of time

                        I am going to text my insurance agent tonight, lollol. Mostly because I am annoyed with myself for not remembering the breeders name or the stallion's name.

                        i can see him in the show ring picture. I can see the lady's face, and her sister's face when they came in to pay their car insurances, but the names are not coming forth, lol. This getting old business is for the birds, loll

                        FWIW, my first thought when I looked at her head was "that's a Spotted Walker". It could be the angle of the picture but that looks like the long nose and big head that gis typical of a huggable big ole Walking Horse head, lollol

                        Hopefully the abscess will heal soon, so you can video her

                            Haha that is so sweet of you thank you so much! She is a love bug. I got a photo of her standing three legged (as all ascessed horses tend to), with her head in my sisters arms. Oddly sweet for a mare.

                            She is likely happy to finally have a forever home!

                              I have the couple's name but I am striking out; however, I'm not done yet

                              I did find out one very crucial thing -- your mare is NOT the mare I was thinking about. I found a pic of the mare on a defunct forum. The mare had more black on her, including her head.

                              iI tried to find a pic of her foal, to see if you sister's mare might be that foal, but I haven't found it yet.

                              I still think your sister's horse might have the ability to gait. I'll be anxious to see videos and I'm still hunting for that white stallion, on principle, lollol

                                  Heyo! The current sellers were so strange, like Seriously unusual people and wouldnt get us information when we asked but it sounds like some sort of trail riding facility. These peope said that the mare was too small for the current owner who had already bought another trail horse.

                                  They did also mention original owners wanted to buy her back after they found out she had been sold but again... would not provide the original owners info.

                                  Mare is on the mend, I am interested to see if my sister can get a gait out of her. Hopefully get some new pics when shes fattened up a bit

                                    Apologies for my lack of updates...

                                    My sister has been dealing with this mystery lameness for the last couple weeks, we believe we have the abscess on the mend, though my sister had the vet out for a third time to make sure because she still looks a bit funny and vet is wondering if the poor mare might have a dislocated hip...

                                    We noticed her hip was dropped on the trailer the day of pick up which was not there before but figure since it was the same leg as the foot soreness, it was her resting. The mare walks, trots and canters around, mind you with a small hitch in the hip area but not what I would think would be something as severe as dislocation and not other trauma anywhere on her to indicate a fall.


                                    Ultrasound Friday to see if this is indeed the issue but if it is only suggestion from vet is to put her to rest. So sad for such a sweet sweet girl. She really would have been a perfect kids horse one day.

                                    We were referred to a lady who knows Bowen and other equine therapies since I refuse to think it is a death sentence. Jingles it goes well!

                                        Agreed. I hope so too.

                                        Though, atleast she got to be in a place where she was being loved up by all the kiddo's and had lots of food.
