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!

    • The information and pictures for Street Cruise don't come up for me. Is this on my end?? And does anyone know anything about Late and Great?

      • Late and Great's owner has decided to keep him! She just cannot part with him.

        Unfortunately, City Look coliced badly and had to be put down. Her owner/trainer worked very hard to save her and was devastated when she lost her.

            • Sorry for the error message. They should all have photo's listed now. Its a long numerical code and evidently its a strong dyslexia day. I double checked and could see everyone's. If it isn't working, let me know so I can figure it out (or find someone who can).

                  I love Who's Livin Bettor, he's very classy. When I took his pics for the trainers' list Ed crawled under him.

                  Speaking of longivity, have you seen this guy? He has 89 starts and tight ankles and knees. He's only 7, but has the starts of an 11 year old.

                      As of last weekend Wayside Park was still available. We can try to check again this weekend. I took his listing, and I really like him. Very classy horse, high quality. Nice mover, athletic, quiet and sensible. I can't imagine why he hasn't found a home yet. But perhaps that will be Quillcote Farm's good luck!

                        Thanksgiving Indeed!

                        So many people have stepped up recetly to bring a Finger Lakes Finest into their lives. I am astounded and so grateful that so many horses have been finding new homes. I have personally been involved in either showing around the people who have found the "one," or in communicating with them about their track visit and horses to look at, so I am particularly thankful. So many people have truly made this a time for Thanks Giving for Finger Lakes Finests.
                        Too Tough Jake, who we just listed, found a home today. And just in the past 10 days the roster of placed horses includes: Runnin Bayou, Pretty Victory, Lovely Promise, Neverabettercity, RunforMikey, Capridge, Missed the Notes. Plus three lucky horses who did not even get up on the listings because shoppers saw them first: Isamu, Navedano, and Social Club. And the shopper we showed around last weekend is honing in on her "one," and we are escorting more shoppers this weekend.
                        But there are only three more weeks until the stable area closes, so even if we keep up this astounding pace of a horse a day finding a new home, there will be many more wonderful horses still in need.
                        So while giving thanks for your family, health, and good happenings in your life on this holiday of reflecting on things to be thankful for, keep the FL Finests in mind.

                          • I've had my eye on one of these flf but haven't found the time to make the trek up there yet and if I have the horse vetted, that's two treks. How many people go up with their trailers and not get their new horses vetted?

                            That said, I am determined to find my next Ottb soon )

                              Well something about him speaks to me, Iam in Ma. So it would be a long ride which is why I was asking if there was any inside scoop on him,wonder if they would let him go for next to nothing, that would make the drive out a little less painful, I think Iam about 6ish hrs from there? Sigh what to do!?

                              If anyone goes to look at another maybe you could peek at him and give me a heads up??? Thanks and......

                              Happy Thanksgiving

                              • A possibility for you, Amerlyn3, might be to call on the horses you're interested in, make sure they are available, plan on a travel date and see if one of the track vets is available that day, drive out with trailer in tow, find "the one" (or ones ) and see about setting up a PPE.

                                Or show up sans trailer, find horse, schedule PPE (I wasn't there for the vetting on Brolio) and find a trailer heading your way? Or possibly find a place close by to FL that could board your FLF a few days/week until you could make another trek out.

                                I really would hesitate buying without even a basic flexion test done. Both sets of volunteers are great at disclosing what they can descern by their eyes, but are not vets.

                                  Eh, just have the volunteers toss one on the trailer for you.

                                  That's literally what I almost did, but ended up having a non-FLF person toss one on a trailer instead.

                                  Couldn't be happier with my lovely mare.

                                  For what it's worth, it was cheaper for me to pay someone to ship my mare to me from Fingerlakes (I'm near Amherst) than drive out and get her myself. I paid under $300, for a professional, insured shipper who got her to me a week from placing the call.

                                  'Course, I didn't get to see her in person, first, but I saw her pictures and was comfortable buying off those alone.

                                    Just do it!!!!!!! I haven't bought many from FLF, but there are enough reviews on this thread and the 'roll call' thread to determine what the trainers are like and by how many on CoTH have bought and they are just as how the 'trainer or ad said'.

                                    I'm comfortable just buying off a picture and talking with the trainer. SEPowell and BC answered a few questions and were very willing to help find a shipper to SD -- it all came down to my gut after speaking with the trainer. When I first saw Itch's picture... I wanted him and he turned out to be just as the trainer stated.... he is now with his new person and I couldn't be happier.

                                    There are lots of nice horses listed that aren't specifically spoken too in the various oooooooooooh and ahhhhhhhhhhh threads - don't let that deter you. Wayside is a cutie and looks to have run consistently, pedigree isn't all that shabby either

                                    I can't say 'don't get a ppe', but his consistency on the track would lead my gut to think he'd hold up well in a second career.

                                    soooooooooooooooo.... when are yous going to add a finest to your barn?????

                                      Anryln, Heliodoro gave really good advice. Contact me and I can talk you through it. Also, there are many trailers going south at the moment and you may be able to ship your horse more inexpensively than if you shipped him yourself. Then if you have a car that's good on gas maybe you can make the trip up to see before you buy.

                                        I asked for vet recommendations, called one, had him jog the horse, and call me back. And picked which by calling the trainer and talking to him on the phone. First time I saw Lucky in person was when he got off the shipper's trailer. (And I don't have a trainer so that's not a factor, and wouldn't be anyway--I get more opinions from other people on dresses than horses. The one time we let a trainer have a vote it wasn't a good fit for anything but her wallet.)
