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!

    Who needs enabling? He seems like a sweet guy.
    COTH is so dangerous. "While you're there, pick up another!"

    Someone get him because he is quite cute and I would end up being one of those "what the heck were they thinking?!?!" horror stories if I got an OTTB right off the track. Save me from temptation!

    Perhaps a bit more information if there is any? If being an upper level eventer is out, does that mean no jumping at all ever, or just not the stress of being really competitive?

      If you are indeed seriously interested, PM me and I will give you the contact information for the vet who examined him so you can get her opinion directly, and ask any questions you would like. She told me she thought pleasure and trail riding would be best because she did not want to risk the knees becoming completely shot from jumping. She -- and I -- prefer to see Liberty go to a new life where he can be comfortable and useful for a long time. Now, does that mean you should never jump him over logs and other things one finds on trails? I doubt it.

        I would like to be more serious than I feel like I responsibly can be - I don't have finances quite in order yet, particularly for an OTTB right off the track who is likely to need a bunch of pro training quite soon to get restarted. (I know enough to know that I absolutely have no business trying to do that kind of thing myself.)

        So no one feel like you're stepping on my toes or anything if you are interested in him, as seems to sometimes happen.

        • Knee chips and jumping are usually not a good combination, more so if there are multiple chips. That does not mean though that the occasional log on a trail etc is not possible, or this horse could do really well as a pleasure, low level dressage horse etc..Not everyone wants to jump. Since a PPE is already done, give the vet a call and she will give you the details. If the horse has a good disposition etc, someone should give him a chance. When I worked for a large non profit we had many horses successfully adopted out to pleasure homes with knee chips...

          • Any updates on this guy? Has anyone been to look or scoop him up yet? Wish he was closer I could probably give him a soft place to land but am in PA. I wonder if he is a surgical candidate for his chips?

            • Old Photos...possible enabling?

              So I figured I'd look through old photos I've taken and match up dates/times with race records to see if I inadvertently took pics of any of the newly listed horses. The only one I managed to get was Bwana Be Bad from May 17, 2012. Enjoy

                • Relatively Ready is listed again. Literally the horse of my dreams and all I can do is drool from afar

                  Ok sorry. Mini pity party over-someone go scoop him up because he is one good looking guy! Or I'd be happy to give someone my address if they'd like to have him delivered here

                  And there are some other serious hunks listed with both organizations. I'm not sure what it is about that track, but there seems to be a concentration of high quality horses every. single. week.

                    Relatively Ready

                    He is indeed listed again! And he is as elegant, kind and classy as ever. And his wonderfully caring owner/trainer is very anxious to find him a good home; this horse is telling her he is just done with racing.
                    I love this horse and have visited with him often this summer. He really deserves a great home! Come on Sparky -- we have to make your dream come true!

                      Yeah, any takers? he's just a young one too, poor fella. I have my hobby farm for sale, with an offer in on another farm with more pasture.....if that would all go through I could offer a soft landing, but not by the deadline.

                      • Pennyannie Cowgirl listed on the Fingerlakes Trainers Lising is a beautiful mare. Worth checking out I think.

                        • Hi All Just checking in during a busy time.

                          The person who bought T G Hero is the first person who asked me about him so if you see a horse you like, please don't wait, just go for it. I think I posted Hero on Mon night or Tues am and his new owner was at the track by that Thursday! The deal was not sealed until after Hero's trainer checked her out, but he did go to the first person who showed up.

                          If you're a mare person this is your moment to buy. And if you're a gelding person, your moment has been extended... there are some incredibly athletic looking mares and geldings waiting to learn to play new games.

                          Must go call the hay man, out to the barn, to the garden (only four plants, that's an easy one) etc. etc. and then back to Finger Lakes!

                          • I wonder what Baracuda's real name and breeding are? Equineline doesn't have a Baracuda younger than a 12 year old mare or a matching Barracuda, either. But he is lovely!

                            • Bump up for Liberty. Here's hoping he gets a soft landing!

                              As far as Relatively Ready is concerned, I'll see what I can do. I can think of several reasons that we should not add a horse to our family right now, but I can always think of several reasons. I think at some point I'm going to have to be willing to take the leap and just make it work. The trick is getting DH to buy into that philosophy. While he is very supportive of my love of horses, he's not too keen on the financial commitment. I'm betting explaining shipping and that he lives in NY will be large hurdles, but it's certainly worth a shot. Won't know if I don't ask!

                              Until that miracle occurs, anyone else is certainly encouraged to go scoop him up and post updates so I can live vicariously. He just oozes class to me! I bet he'll be lots of fun in his next career.

                                He's a Behrens son, so it's Behracuda.

                                    Thank you. And just to add to that, Behrens is by Pleasant Colony who is always nice to have this close. What a nice horse.

                                      I was wondering if anyone has come across a mare named Little Lily Tee? I hope she is ok. . . I own her sister, she was sold off the track in Texas and was supposed to go to Ohio.

                                          According to equibase, she hasn't raced since early April, with no recent workouts -- which probably means she isn't on the track anymore. You should try contacting the last listed trainer. It might also be worth it to check with CANTER for the Ohio tracks, to find out if the mare was listed with them earlier this year.
