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!

      Agree 100%. Maybe when the FLF is ready they can post some kind of announcement. I think peeps were just confused/surprised/unsure about what was transpiring.

        • I really like Proud Wildcat- looks like he is tight up high through his back and hind end like so many of them but that is easily fixed. Love his balanced overall appearance- as SEPowell said, he looks older than 3

          • Something about Proud Wildcat's neck just doesn't look right to me. It could be the angle the pictures were taken, looks short and wide. I keep wanting to like him, but the neck just sticks out to me...

            Now Desert Doctor and King's Fez... it's a good thing I'm poor and the boarding barn is full right now!

              I think the head shot I put up creates that impression. I didn't crop it correctly. But his whole picture shows a pretty good neckset.

              He looks like he'll be able to easily get his front end up for jumping and that hind end is going to power him anyplace he wants to go. And he's only three... He may be our current diamond in the rough.

              Watch his video, he's light on his feet!

              • Looking at Wildcat, it looks more like some solid muscling on his under neck more than a structural issue. He does look pretty nice, especially for a youngster.

                Gotta say, though, after watching Valentine's Day video, I really like her. No real hurry to trot and then gets going and shoes off a bit. She seems to be a bit of a Labrador type.

                Right now, there are a number of youngsters that are really appealing.

                • Valentine's Day

                  I have to weigh in on this lovely girl!

                  I have an Orville baby, my 4 y.o. filly, Flight. To say that she is just about perfect is an understatement. She is smart, kind and athletic and beautiful! Of course her damn is Eventing J's Finest, The Jolly, who was one of the classiest racehorses I ever worked with.

                  Her damn, Forever Flawless, is a horse that I spent a LOT of time with on the track. Flawless was a beautiful gray mare who endeared herself to a lot of people on the track. She was one of my daughter's favorite horses to gallop, and that's saying a lot because she's galloped many, many horses!

                  Please give this gal a look.

                  • Lauren Gabriella

                    Oops...didn't see her before I last posted.

                    Lauren is by Don Corleone who was a homebred boy who wowed the hometown crowd when he won the 2004 New York Derby with all local connections.

                    Don's dam, Twice Forbidden, was New York Broodmare of the year in 2010 (don't quote me on that year, but around then) for the many foals who went on to be phenoms on the track, including the Big Apple Triple winner Tin Cup Chalice. Anyone considering eventual breeding may salivate at the presence of Twice Forbidden so close up. My understanding is that Twice is considered a "transparent" mare, one who carries the best of the stallion. Breeding isn't my strong suit so others may want to offer some more information.

                      I agree! If you look at his photos on our new official website for the Finger Lakes Finest Throughbreds Trainer Listings, which were taken by a different photographer than the ones on the old pro boards forum, you will see that his neck is fine and he is well built indeed. The video on our new webiste also shows lovely movement.

                      I also want to plug another gorgeous big youngster on our website: Dispute Demusic. http://fingerlakesfinesttbs.com/dispute-demusic/
                      I can't believe he hasn't generated comment yet. This guy blew me away in person -- with his build and lofty movement he just shouts out sport horse prospect. And he is very quiet and sensible and friendly. For those who missed out on Adirondack Dew, here is his equivalent in golden good looks and potential -- but with no racing wear and tear on him at all.

                        • JumpingAddict93 - Wolfgang was scratched because I purchased him that day and did not want him racing. He has settled in perfectly and loves turnout! I am so happy with this thus far. I haven't gotten on him yet, just giving him some down time to adjust to his new home. He is very mellow and sweet, I don't foresee any issues riding him. Will provide updates when I start riding him.

                            Hey! That's very cool. Thank you for sharing your news.

                            Very soon after I returned to the track this summer one of the state vets literally dragged me down the shedrow to introduce me to Wolfgang. She had fallen in love with him and was telling me what a good guy he was, what a cute personality he had and how perfect he'd be for someone after he finished racing.

                            So I suspect all of your news will be pretty good. Have fun!

                              "Nifty" news indeed about Wolfgang! I took his listing and did the write up for him, and I was certainly in love, as the gushing write up made clear. I am so glad to know he is in the hands of a COTHer who can keep us updated about his progress. I know when I went to see his trainer to follow up on why he had been scratched, and she happily told me it was because he had been sold, she was beaing and said he went to a great home.

                                Yes, they are- I get the sense that things are competitive between the two groups when they should be cooperative? Not sure why, I don't believe any money is at stake, everyone is volunteering, and there are lots of nice horses that need to be listed- the more exposure for these horses the better. Maybe different philosophies but the same goal- helping the horses. It is important to remember that for any one group to succeed does not mean that another must fail......

                                • And I have to say I HATE that script-based pop-up photo thing on the "new" site. It's sit there hoping it opens or squint at tiny thumbnails. And not a big fan of fewer listings per page.

                                    Thank you Bev for your wise words. My offer for collaboration stands with everyone who lists at Finger Lakes.

                                    You and I have collaborated for many years and it has made my life richer, and not a penny was involved. You know the ropes better than anyone and knew that together we could get a few more horses to a few more good homes.

                                    And that brings up something I was discussing with a trainer today. She had a few horses to list but had different goals for them in their new careers. Some she wants to see go to people who aspire to take them to big places because they're exceptionally talented horses, but for one in particular she wants a very quiet loving forever home and if the horse becomes competitive, good, but if not that's just as good, as long as the horse is loved and happy. This trainer wants to collaborate with us to find the best homes for her horses. She knows it's all about collaboration.

                                    The "job" I have on the backside involves collaboration trainers and often with potential buyers. This is what it takes to get these horses to the best places for them. Collaboration is the magic word, it keeps things going in a positive direction, it's dynamic, it generates creative solutions when you're trying to fit in one more horse or somehow manage poor timing for a trainer's or buyer's needs. It makes things fall in place for the horses.

                                    If we don't keep it positive, collaborative, and polite the horses and trainers will suffer. It's about them so let's do it right for them.

                                    OK, end of soliloquy.
