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!

          How do you know what they will go for and how would I get one (or two) home to Ontario?

            Well, they went for about that at last year's sale. If you find the exracers forum you can see that the lowest price you'll get for them will be by the pound, and you can figure from there.

            Plus, several of these horses were on the CANTER illinois website for $700 before heading to this auction.

            I'm guessing the nicer "hunter style" horses that everyone likes here will go for higher, maybe 6-800 but definetly under $1,000.

                Good lord - the WITHERS! I forgot that TBs have such, hmm, prominent doesn't even begin to describe the withers on some of these horses.

                That said, some of them just look like the need a good meal and a nice home...
                If only I could...
                I hope they ALL go on to brilliant second lives as pets.

                  They are all absolutely lovely--and several really stick out as nice prospects!!

                  OK folks--Who have YOU told about this sale? Have you posted it somewhere? Where?

                    They won't all go for $400. I've gone to the sale and they go from no-sale to roughly $2000. We bought two, a perfectly sound but small, well bred guy for $500 (who went on to win at BN the following summer) and one for $400 (who turns out is clean legged but has cloudy eyes--doesn't appear to have any trouble seeing, but looks a bit odd). Both were good horses at a dirt-cheap price! I bid on 3 others, two got over the price I wanted to pay and one no-saled.

                    You can get a nice horse for not much $$ at this sale, but I would very strongly encourage going the day before (or at the very least be at the barns at 5 AM Saturday) to go through the barn and look at what's available. We saw one big guy we would have bid on in a heartbeat if we hadn't talked to his groom before hand and found out he needed knee and ankle injections to be running sound.

                    I have also directly donated money to purchase some older, less than sound horses so they can be retired rather than sold off for other purposes. One of them is now at the TRF--one of these days I'm going to go meet him in person! If you want to donate I suggest contacting Keely at CANTER IL (she's exceptionally busy doing all the auction photographs on her own time, bless her heart), Nancy Scott at CANTER OH, Joanne at CANTER MI--I'm not sure if the other CANTER branches have the ability to have CANTER owned horses (Fairweather? What's the scoop?)

                    If you can't keep another horse, you can contribute the the wellfare of "less than useful" horses by donating money to the TRF, and other worthy organizations if you'd like to give something back to the wonderful animals that give us all so much joy.

                      FW - Do you want us to send donations to Keely??

                        I would take home Sky's the Top and Sly's Aggravation, myself.

                          Sky's the top is my first pick. I like picture book and electic salt too. Just looking to improve my conformation eye... trying to pick the uphill build.

                          Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina!

                              to tell you the truth, I've never seen uglier horses than that, look at them they all have 45 degrees back going down, those are not racers, never been, bred with pieces I call that, that's def. the end the way I described it, well done.

                              Never take the advice of a horseman personal.

                                Just curious on my part.... one horse that caught my eye on CanterIllinois and again going to this auction is "Josh Daniel". Is there any reason that people don't seem to "like" him? I am just curious because he really catches my eye (not quite sure why!!! just love his look), and yet he doesn't seem to be getting that much "attention". What is it about him that doesn't appeal to people??

                                And also a bump for the sale! I wish I could go but it is quite a distance away, and I don't think I could quite have another horse right now (although I would probably take that colt in an instant).

                                  I wish never to see such machine in real life, their back way too short; if that runs it breaks the forelegs with the hindlegs, a picture is at least fake.

                                    I kinda like Bell Buzzer, since I think my next one will be a husband horse. An older horse, trail ridden, with a soft and kind look. Bad angle on the pic, and I can't tell what he's built like, but I like his eye. *shrug*

                                    For me, I like Tiger Hawk.

                                      I make the assumption that if they've raced, they must have at least passable conformation. I think all the horses on the site are lovely. I hope they are picked up by the majority of wonderful BB'ers on this board!

                                      Off to get some assignments done, which in turn will lead to a good job, which then will lead to a generous income = eventually buying some of these horses in the future

                                        Enjoytheride - Cat Girl's Love is my top pick as well. She looks very elegant even in her present condition. With some groceries, I think she'd be stunning, & if she has a nice personality, I can see her as a terrific sporthorse mom.
