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!

Bought horse with fraudulent coggins!

    Personally, I would say to myself, Well, that stinks. Then I would figure out what the horse needed to make a good, safe sale home and put a season into the horse with that in mind so he could get to a good home and learn my lesson about not PPEing a horse, if its going to mean that much to me to know the age. Personally, I would have thought you would have found out on your own when you got his teeth done. Oy vell. That's horses.
    Airborne? Oh. Yes, he can take a joke. Once. After that, the joke's on you.

      They didn't ignore my concerns. When I called the office they didn't charge me for those Coggins, and also removed the farm call, even though I had yearly shots done at the same time. They also offered to come out and re-pull blood for new tests, but as these are retirees that would only be leaving the boarding farm in an emergency, I made the decision to let it go. They have provided me with excellent service over the years, and I certainly wouldn't drop them because someone was having a blonde moment over a long-time client's horse paperwork.

      My point was only that Coggins paperwork relies mostly on what the vet is being told at a given moment, and it's absolutely subject to GIGO (garbage in, garbage out). I would never take the age, especially, from a Coggins, as gospel.
      This fills in some blanks but I'd still wonder about "gender changes" in Coggins papers. You don't have to see "DVM" after a person's name to assume they can tell the difference!

      I get that people can have "Monday's", too. But in the vet. profession, as in human medicine, they ought to be few, far between, and not accepted as an ordinary or routine event. It's also well to remember that the Coggins paper is a legal document and in some states (like TN) it's actually unlawful to take a horse without a Coggins on a public roadway. If it doesn't match the physical description of the horse then an ACO can seize the horse and quarantine same and owner can find themselves with some impressive court costs, fees, and stabling bills.

      That they made the corrections you note is a sign of reasonableness.

        My old guy's registration papers missed all the markings on one leg, and when I got my DD's birth certificate the time was wrong. You don't even want to know the sorts of things found in archived records on Ancestry.

        It's a shame but not worth fighting over, as the seller probably didn't know the age either.

          Please explain what you mean when someone has a "blonde moment"?

            I wouldn't necessarily put 100% stock in a Coggins except it being negative -meaning I wouldn't totally rely on it for proof of ownership, age, breed, height, and in some cases color. As others have mentioned some of the information is as good as what they pass along to future owners, vets, etc. Then you also have barn managers and grooms who hold for the vets who may not be that familiar with the horse either - so information give to vet may not always be accurate. While 7 - 15 is bit of an age difference, I don't think you can really hold the seller accountable unless you can proof they intended to defraud you.

              I have not seen (sorry if I missed it) that you have independently verified that the horse is in fact 13. I would do that first. As someone mentioned above, you can’t run a microchip number through Equibase. So if the buyer told you she did that, she was confused or mistaken.

                  Natural blonde here also and I use the blonde moment expression also when I refer to a brain fart.

                    Are you genuinely asking or genuinely insinuating that blondes are a marginalized group?

                      Apparently they don't understand the amount of money some people will pay to look like natural blondes. Or even unnatural blondes.

                        Around here, it seems most if not all vets use Coggins with pictures now. A lot easier than attempting to catalog all of a horse's markings and easier to match to the horse.

                              Mine does. I don't even get a paper copy. I get a .pdf and print them myself.

                                  Apparently the horse was microchipped outside of the Jockey Club's new (2017, iirc) requirement that foals be chipped. Chips have been available from the JC for several years, or you can get them from other agencies.

                                  Yeah, not real common to find a chip in a 13 yo (or 7 yo, for that matter) Thoroughbred. Particularly one that isn't tattooed and has little training.

                                  I'm curious if the OP verified the info the potential buyer found 🤷

                                    It makes life a lot simpler at shows, vet. check stations, etc. If you forget a copy, or forget to put new copies in your truck at re-do time, all you need is your phone (or other e-mail capable mobile device).

                                      For god’s sake. It’s been around since the beginning of time. I know plenty of natural blondes who will say it when they have a brain fart. I paid a shit ton of money to become a blonde so I can say it too. Relax.
