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!

      I don't know that she'll be able to post on CoTH: she and her hubby are a pretty busy couple (and I do mean BUSY: they run their own business, have 2 kids in college, have all the ponies to tend to, she does agility with her corgis, he just picked up triathlon competition, they both also do falconry... gods, I know I am missing something), but I will be happy to post updates as I get them

      • More good homes to announce! Traz went all the way to GA. Thank you to her new owner for dropping what she was doing to make a very long trip to meet the van and pick up Traz for the rest of her trip home. Beach Assault, Peaked Performance and Kingston Five are in their new homes too.

        There are some very nice new horses on the Trainers' list and on Monday I'll be back at the track to finish what I didn't finish today.

        If you're ready for a new horse there are many sizes and dispositions available from the various organizations working out of Finger Lakes. Check all of them carefully to find your perfect match.

            So funny! Well, I didn't look between "his" legs so maybe he's a she! I'll check on Monday. I either be changing the name or the gender because the trainer just gave the groom a stall number and someone else piped up with a name.

                Should you need further photos, there are thirteen new horses from this weekend and if you have been holding out for black, then you are in luck.

                There is a video for Lovely Promise and some new photos and video for Genuine Offer.

                There is not a whole lot of time left, so get your winter projects lined up!

                  • Ok, I look at all the wonderful horses at Finger Lakes multiple times a day and I just wanted to give this guy a little extra exposure, http://fingerlakesfinesttbs.com/neverbeencity/.

                    This guy has raced 87 times and still looks to be a sound, attractive mover! These experienced veterans have always been the easiest ones to transition to a new job, in my experience. Would just love to see this sweetheart get a chance at a second career. Come on, look at that head shot, sweet or what?!

                      Neverabettercity

                      Tux, your good wishes vibes have worked! We were just contacted today by someone who is picking up Neverabettercity tomorrow to take him to a new home. And she is bringing a two horse trailer and perhaps might put another Finest on it! Will update if that second one works out.

                      Lots of buyer activity lately -- I escorted another group around on Saturday, and I know which beautiful one they have chosen but will wait until the PPE is done to post -- don't want to jinx anything. And others are planning to come look next week, so fingers tightly corssed that several more Finests will be getting new homes soon.

                      And a steady buyer of Finests is coming with trailer on Friday, hoping to put two more on it.....

                      The extensive placements lately have been so gratifying. And through our e-mail and FB we are getting great happy updates from the ecstatic new owners. Just heard that Tanzillion (Tanner) started jumping! And Walkin Boss's new person is over the moon happy with him and already plotting next year's show schedule he is progressing so well.

                        Yup, this one is indeed a major Wow!!! One of the nicest I have ever seen while taking listing photos and info. We have already been contacted by seriously interested people, so don't wait on this one. It is taking major personal willpower on my part, constant mantra that I just cannot take on another horse right now, for me to resist him.

                        • I have made it this long without looking, but I just had to.....


                          As always, FLF has some beautiful beasties! Pupcake would be coming home with me if I was looking.
                          For those who might be considering one of the horses by Regal Classic, the FLF mare I had by him is the kindest, sweetest, prettiest mover who will do anything to please. I've heard similar about others by that stallion.

                                  The Runnin Bayou Contest Has Now Concluded!

                                  OK folks, time to wipe the drool off your faces. We have just confirmed that Runnin Bayou left on a trailer this morning to go to his new home to be retrained as a show hunter (and we are all hoping we don't have to compete against him in the show ring)!

                                  Several interested people went to watch his winning race on Wednesday, and a bidding war erupted as he was being led from the winner's circle back to the barn. Here's hoping he wins even more in his show career.

                                  So the lesson of this lightning quick placement is: if you are thinking about one of the listed horses, do not hesitate. Pick up the phone. Go to the track. Bring a Finest into your life! There are many lovely horses with great potential in new careers still awaiting their new people. Even some very pretty almost black ones with white, just like RB.

                                    Another plug for Pupcake. I've been eyeing that mare up all week. If I had somewhere to put her, I'd be bringing her home.

                                    And, she is with the same great trainer my mare came from in 2010. My girl had great care at the track and was clearly well loved, as she is the type that thinks all people are friends. She trusts anyone and everyone and was obviously never given a reason to do otherwise.

                                    So yeah someone take Pupcake home.... she is lovely, and has a super name, and is coming from good connections at FL.
                                    We couldn't all be cowboys, so some of us are clowns.

                                    • Flash is right!

                                      Pupcake is a lovely, lovely mare!

                                      Lucky13 and I just got back from the track and saw many really nice horses. We also got a chance to visit some who have been on the website for a while. Florida Quaker is a quality mare and I cannot believe she hasn't been snapped up yet. Her stablemate was one we photographed this morning and she simply spoke to me! Another truly lovely mare.

                                      I went back to see Merlin Circle who is a people-oriented sweetheart. I think he could be loved on 24/7!

                                      Gottagetthegreen and Illmakeitup, stablemates, are beefy horses that are very impressive in person.

                                      We travelled all around the track and to a couple farms and saw one pretty horse after another. As Buffalo Colleen suggested, if you have your heart set on a horse, you had better get moving. The OTTB cache is gaining momentum and we have the mother lode!

                                        Pretty Victory Has a Great New Home!

                                        I have been sitting on this good news all week, waiting for the PPE. Last weekend I took a group around the track, and they were looking for show hunter prospects. I could see one of those wonderful love stories unfolding as we showed them Pretty Victory -- one of the nicest horses listed this year, IMHO! The person who fell in love called me last Tuesday to confirm that Pretty Victory was the one, pending PPE, which was scheduled for Friday. Well, the good news came to me earlier today: the beautiful mare passed the PPE, shipped right away to her new home, settled right in to turnout, and her new owner reports she has already lunged her and she is a doll and a joy to work with.

                                        We hope to have more good news soon. Our volunteers showed lots of really nice horses to a serious shopper this past Saturday, and she is mulling over her decision. But, as she has told us, there were so many amazingly nice, quality horses that she saw, she feels she can hardly go wrong with whichever one she chooses. And that means she will leave some true Finests still available for others!
