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!

    LOL...okay, who's the wise-arse alter having fun?
    Seriously...it's gotta be an alter having fun. Or a troll. Nobody over the age of 13 should be shocked that animals have sex. By that age they have to realize if it's not extinct, it's having sex. Frankly I'm surprised there were actual serious replies about the subject...it's not really a breeding issue thread but a "Wowee...horsies do the dirty deed" thread.

    If you want to be shocked by two animals having sex...watch a nature show of tasmanian devils doing the bing-bing...now that's pretty shocking! Or open your windows in spring and listen to foxes when they're feeling randy...sounds like hell.

        I've seen everything from natural pasture breeding where the stallion is turned out with the mares all summer and he does it when he decides the time is right to much more "formal" live cover at some of the major TB breeding farms in Lexington, KY, what's the big deal?

            when he decides the time is right
            Welll...usually it's SHE who decides when the right time is. If she's got a "headache" Mr Studly can get a double barrel set of hooves in his face.
            Which is why the mare in hand breeding is practically hog-tied.

            Speaking of Hand Breeding...is that what you meant about Hairy Palms, J Swan?

              Sadly, I don'y even think the OP is a boy. I think SHE is one of our regular posters having fun poking at everyone with sticks. SHE might consider getting a hobby. Or a life?

                Well I was only a child at the time and not interested in breeding of any kind but we were told that the stallion instinctively would know the best time to get romantic. They also said he would breed each mare three times during the season. This was a Shetland pony breeding farm, two stallions, each one was turned out with his band of "ladies" in a 50 acre pasture for the entire summer. Just about everyone seemed to get pregnant with no help from the humans.

                The lesson ring was next to one of the breeding fields though and the owners occasionally had to explain to some of the kiddies that the ponies were giving piggy back rides in answer to their curious questions.

I sure did respect her after that though!!
                    seriously? wow. if that bothered you then you certainly don't want to be anywhere around when they are catching sperm and using an actual mare as a teaser.

                      Perhaps the OP just likes to see how quickly us COThers can get in an uproar. In all reality, the thread itself is not bad and it certainly got alot of views.

                      I laugh when I think about how many guys read the panty thread and what reading that did to them.

                        On a funny note, in the pasture that was in my old yard, the owners leased it to some nitwits who turned out a stallion with 3 mares. Needless to say, my 4 year old twins got quite the education on horse reproduction that summer!

                          Methinks someone is anthropomorphizing just a wee bit......

                          I've seen plenty of breedings and have never seen "kisses and cuddles". "Powerful" is the word that comes to my mind, and not in a breathless, "ooh you're so strong" meaning.

                          I also didn't think it was "beautiful" or "romantic" either, but maybe I'm just not sensitive enough.

                          Homeopathy claims water can cure you since it once held medicine. That's like saying you can get sustenance from an empty plate because it once held food.

                            The few breedings I have watched - well - just gave me pause. As well my first time seeing a foal born.

                              arabhorse2, I really see a lot of love, care and these small nice things when two horses are romancing. Not in a human way, of course... But again, who I'm to say so, as probably I had seen more romancing animals than humans

                              The biggest laugh in my life (on that sort of thing) I had when my 9 mo old foster shimpanzee spotted the equipment of my St.Bernard. I wish I had camera at hand. The expression in her face was like a teen girl would see her idol walking in her room out of the blue. Sooo adoringly, with such a respect...

                                  Ehh...it's nature. Though I must admit to a moment of shock when I offered to assist with a collection one year, and was told "here, hold this in case we need it." "It" was a stallion condom.

                                  Nothing else breeding-related has ever really shocked me, but I do tend to feel bad for the mares...they sometimes take quite a pounding on both ends, first from the stallion, and then from giving birth. All I can think is, OUCH.

                                  And the closest thing to "romance" I've seen was when a stud practically passed out on top of the mare.

                                      Typical indeed! He did the deed, then hung on the mare like a ragdoll until the handler dragged him off. Luckily the mare was a stout QH, or he might have squashed her.

                                      Stallions that fart during the act are quite charming too...

                                        OMG you guys are too much!

                                        At one barn I was at they decided to turn the mare and stud out together and 'let nature take it's course'. Well it was summer camp week and all the little campers were within earshot of the proceedings, so they all rushed out to see-they were very concerned as to why the horsies were 'stuck together'. We had to carry a lot off little kids to the tack room with our hands over their ears and eyes attempting to calm them with tales of horsey leapfrog and horsey tag. Some of the parents were less than impressed.

                                          OK, as soon as I saw the OP said the stallion was hauled in for live covers....

                                          Uh, yeah, let's get the guy thinking that he hops in the trailer, goes down the road and gets some. NOT.
