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!

  • More horses sold and more pics and videos up. But I'm not telling who, you'll have to go to the site for that. I'm a meanie

    Comment


    • We beat the Frankenstorm to Finger Lakes Race Track yesterday morning and managed to photograph four more very nice horses for the fingerlakesfinesttbs.com website and the Finger Lakes Finest Thoroughbreds, Inc. facebook page.

      It was a challenging day to take photos, what with the overcast skies, the wind and the drizzle, but these horses are such high quality that they still look great. If you are into black bays, we listed two, a very handsome gelding and a 3 year old filly that is already way over 17 hands (for those who like their horses tall and dark). The filly just came back to her trainer from a less than ideal situation and needs to gain about 200 pounds, but when she does she will be stunning. Two pretty bay mares round out yesterdays group.

      People must be staying home in front of this approaching storm and just cruising the web, as our facebook page is blowing up with all the views, likes and comments. If you have a free minute, or ten, would you head on over to our facebook page and take a look. While you are there, would you be kind enough to "like" our page! We are over 300 likes now and would love to make it to 400.

      Happy window shopping and remember that the closer it gets to winter, typically the more negotiable the prices get on these great horses!

        Truffula!

        Remember the beautiful mare Truffula, she of the beautiful conformation and amazing floating gaits? She was the hot horse from last summer's listings but was then withdrawn by her owner/trainer because she started winning races -- and she kept on running well all through last fall and then won several more races this summer and fall.
        Well, the two people that own her finally decided it was time to retire her while she was still completely sound, and even though several breeders were calling and begging them to sell the mare to them, they wanted her to go to someone who they knew, and who loved the horse as much as they did and would keep in touch with them about her progress and always look out for her. And they called last week and offered her to ME!!!! I have loved this mare ever since I first laid eyes on her while taking her photographs for her listing early last summer, and I visited with her almost every time I went to the track, so how could I possibly have turned them down! My wonderful BO cleaned out a junk stall to make room for yet one more Finest.
        Today, she arrived safely at her new home, and settled in well. When I went to pick her up at the track, her trainer was crying, we hugged, and he gave her a farewell peppermint and then pushed a fistful of peppermints into my pocket -- which I doled out to Truffula throughout the afternoon to welcome her into my life and bond with her. Her other owner kept saying that she couldn't wait to see the mare under a dressage saddle, and I promised pictures of that very thing.
        I still can't quite believe the horse of my dreams is really now standing in my barn, but she indeed is.

              I remember her video very well, with Tito explaining (complete with an imitation of a beautiful bascule done with his arm), how she would also be "good for jumping" because she had jumped some sort of fence

              Congrats! We will be wanting LOTS of pictures!

                  • Broodmare prospect

                    Who would be your top broodmare pick to breed to this stallion http://www.blazingcoloursfarm.com/goldentime.html for a dressage prospect? I like City Mint as she is a solid bay, but I am also starting to grow partial to Valuable Friend the more I look at her. Cathy All The Way is nice, too, I love the neck...

                      Valuable Friend has really nice hunter type movement, and would certainly throw some flashy golden horses with that mating. She won a race earlier this week, so not sure if her current trainer will still want to part with her -- but with winter settling in and the stable area closing offers are always entertained!
                      Cathy ALl the Way has great sport horse breeding -- Artax/Marquetry line has thrown some really nice jumpers and movers withe good brains. She has the sort of compact solid and balanced build that says hunter-type.

                      • There are sooooo many nice horses I'm having such a hard time deciding! Originally, I wanted to go for a smaller size and was looking at Our Helen Wheels, Seattle Embers and Short Term Vision. STV's trainer isn't sure he wants to sell since she won. I'm thinking type is more important than size if I am going for a dressage prospect in a breed that isn't typical of dressage. I think I will call on Valuable Friend and Cathy All The Way tomorrow morning.

                            More active shoppers and more Finests finding homes: Time to Go Girl was snapped up right away, leaving a couple of disappointed callers. The adorable Ziggy found his person and shipped to his new home today. And Isamu, a pretty filly we have been trying to list for two weeks but her trainer was busy and kept saying to come back, was finally seen while shoppers were present, and she was whisked off to a great new home without ever going up on the listings!
                            Time to Go Girl's trainer was so appreciative and called us to thank us-- she was amazed at how quickly she started getting calls after we put this lovely mare on our website and Facebook page. And she also started getting lots of calls on her other mare we just listed -- Helyna's Dreaming, and we are hoping to confirm a new home for her any day now.
                            I am personally so happy that some people have stepped up for some mares!
                            It is indeed now crunch time for the horses at Finger Lakes, so if you have been thinking about calling or going to look, now is the time! No more procrastinating.

                            • Just back from the track

                              Lucky13 and I had a blast this morning, catching up on all things horse related and other, talking to a bunch of trainers, getting updates and taking pictures. We've got 5 new Finests to showcase and one of them is so special I'm still grinning. I won't spoil the fun surprise because a picture is worth a thousand words, you know, but I am issuing a Cuteness Alert!

                              • Five new listings with photos up. A few nice examples of tall, dark, and elegant (since some are ladies), a chestnut horse, and a filly with a whole lot of white.

                                Videos will be added as soon as they are uploaded.

                                • Offshore Score update

                                  Just wanted to put an update on Dylan (Offshore Score) since he was so popular and still is. Weve gotten many messages asking if he was for sale .
                                  He has settled in quite nicely and seems to enjoy all the other finest he gets to hang out with. In his video you could see his beautiful movement and he is as comfortable as he looks. He has a very nice canter and is good with his leads! Hes already trotting poles like a pro! Hes awesome to work with and lucky to have him He has a good noggin and cant wait tl see all his progression <3
                                  I think my other Finest, Penny may be a bit jealous but she gets skme breaks. She will always be my number one <3
                                  Nothing better than an OTTB.... Just Plan Partners,Penny, you have stolen my heart<3

                                    • I need to stop looking at these things. We've got a potential free lease horse coming in (our farrier's retired Arab broodmare who needs a non-breeding home-she's offered to board her with us in exchange for farrier work if the horses get along) but now I love Song for Pupcake. Though the pasterns make me a tad leery with Unbridled's Song breeding.

                                      • Another FLF gets a home

                                        This one is confirmed by his new owner, who is a long time friend of mine... Secrets Only has landed in a super spot with friends of mine in West Monroe, NY (N of Syracure). Wooo-Hoooo!!!! We met while in college and evented, hunter paced and tail gated together. He joins another FLF, and a bunch of Connemaras (one is 25 years young and foxhunting with the Lime Creek Hunt!).

                                        She wrote (on FB): "His first introduction to walking around the indoor on a shank, no chain, went very well. Even with hawk working around him. Eating well, ears up, no offers to kick, fingers crossed! He seems very sweet, Keith led him over a ground rail, little jump from him like WTF? But did repeat it several times. Seems to be a thinker, but comes over to socialize"

                                        SQUEEEEE!!!!!!!
