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!

      Amryln,

      I bought my horse sight-unseen... all the way from FL (the state, not the Finger Lakes area ). Not saying that you should do this, but you may be able to consolidate the trips into one with the help of some of the volunteers - maybe coordinate on a day a vet is already at the track for another PPE and wouldn't mind doing a second one. I had neither - I watched all his race replays (he ran every 7-14 days) and talked with the trainer/owner (very forthcoming and truthful), especially about the 2 times my FLF was scratched. I have been around the block though, so I know what to ask and can read between the lines.

      It will all depend on what your goals are for you and your OTTB - if you are looking to compete at the upper levels of your chosen discipline then I wouldn't skip a visit and PPE, but if you are looking at something for the lower/mid-levels, you may be able to condense the process.

      FF

              • Wayside Park was in his stall yesterday....maybe he left this morning.

                Heads up to everyone that we have another bunch of beauties for you to feast your eyes on. It was a very successful and productive day on the backside. We were able to meet horses that are new to us and visit some that have been part of the Finest family for quite a while.

                The volunteers who make this website happen have an emotional attachment to the horses they interview and photograph and, as the year winds down, we become more anxious that all of the wonderful horses we have met will be going home with you sooner rather than later. To that end, the volunteers are poised to help you visit the track, arrange shipping and generally do whatever it takes to put a Finest in your barn.

                We have one horse who is looking for a ride to the Charlestown Racetrack area. Anybody coming up to the track from that area with a rig in tow?

                This latest crop of horses doesn't have a stinker in the bunch! If you're not an eventer but looking for a quiet, loveable trail horse to pamper, we've got several of those too. Feast your eyes and then pick up the phone!

                This latest crop or horses hasn't a stinker in the bunch. Some of them might be

                  I think you should look at Tindaro's Prospect. First,, because I think my computer is going to be permanently stuck on his page if I pull it up one more time, but mostly because he's looks like an athletic guy who is an attractive mover. I watched all his races to see how he jogged and cantered out. . .lovely!

                        He's a handsome boy! I believe his price was set as his purse size because he was winning...never hurts to make an offer if he's not running as well anymore

                        • Whew - a marathon uploading session. I can't complain because my hours with OTTB's were spent indoors in my sweatpants. I am pretty sure one of our volunteers is a storm magnet.

                          There are twelve new horses to look at in a variety of price ranges. Some of the names are fantastic. Its a varied group, but again, so nice. The hardest part would be narrowing the list down. I remember printing my "top ten" horses' listings off two years ago and sitting with them in a circle around me trying to decide. Of course, Ries wasn't even on my final list because I thought he was back at the home farm. Oh well, the window shopping was fun.

                          Videos are up as well from some of last week's listings.

                          In all seriousness, there are three weeks until the stable area closes and many of the horses need to find homes before that. So if you have been hemming and hawing, its time to get moving. I was a late November shopper myself and it made for a very nice winter to have a project.

                            Storm magnet here! It certainly does seem like every time I have gone to the track this fall, it gets rainy and windy! Yesterday, it got so dark that my flash was going off for some of the photograph sessions, giving the horses a wild eyed look that is not their true nature-- but at least it wasn't snowing yet. A couple of weeks ago when I got to photograph horses in the sun, I was besides myself.
                            I agree with foundationmare -- we saw a really fine group of horses yesterday, on top of another fine group last weekend, and the one before that. At our rate of listing at least a dozen a week it is getting exhausting, and I don't want any of the horses to get lost in the herd. So please go through all the available horses listings -- there are many gems waiting for homes.
                            Of yesterday's group, there are some stunning show hunter or dressage or eventing prospects that are seriously nice horses but are really, really negotiable because they simply have to move within three weeks. They will be the bargains of season, if not many seasons. Jabez and her stablemate My Milenium Breeze really caught my fancy.
                            And then there are two adorable, very sweet and quiet and cute and nice moving stallions -- who just need someone to take them and remove their jewelry and they will be terrific horses. I would hate to think their entact status may doom them, so please step up: Mr. Magenta and Maggie's Prince.
                            And a gorgeous very fancy gray mare: Letthestoriesbtold; a stunning big chestnut gelding, with chrome, a great personality, and lovely movement: Love and Havoc.
                            And the most handsome, classy full brothers: New York Style and Empire Express, much loved homebreds. NYS is looking for a light riding home, and EE is looking for a top level eventer or serious H/J rider to bring out his potential.
                            And then the stunning almost black horse with breathtaking movement to make all of you who lost out on Runnin Bayou forget about him: You Jump I Jump -- has already learned to jump!
                            It was our own version of "Black Friday" -- great gifts, bargains, luxury goods -- a shoppers paradise! Come to the horse mall with us!

                                      Never mind that I'm on the west coast, and I don't need another horse.
                                      He has a face and a build like my (seal brown) OTTB gelding, I looked at his pedigree and the Storm cat and Fappiano are there also in my horse's pedigree.
                                      If they matched personality wise, I'd be in heaven.

                                        Her name is Barbarules. As soon as we get your photographs we will get her up on the website and on the Finger Lakes Finest FB page. Very nice mare, needs to find a home by the end of the meet. Jamie Boldt is the contact person -- her number is listed under the entries for Jabez, My Milenium Breeze, and Mr. Magenta. All of Jamie's listed horses are very nice quality horses available for unbelievable bargain prices just because they cannot overwinter them. This will be some lucky peoples' great bargain opportunity!

                                          He is one of he most spectacular horses we have listed, hands down! His personality is big pet, but very willing to try whatever you want. He has ponied racehorses, gone on western trail rides, and started over cross-rails in an english jumping saddle. Because the trainers' daughter loves him so much and has made him her special pet, the price is pretty firm.
                                          It was funny -- when taking his listing, I asked the price and she said "Five." I said, with an incredulous tone, "Do you mean five hundred?" (Remember, we had been hearing 500 all morning!) If she had said yes, I was going to run to the nearest ATM! When she said "No, five thousand," I thought that's more like it for a horse of this quality, looks, and movement. For someone looking for a forever superstar and not a resale project, that is truly a fair price for this horse in my opinion.
