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!

    Oooh boy! I'd certainly love to see Jethro in my barn!

    I am so antsy to be back in the market for another OTTB. Now is not the time but Jethro sure is a pretty boy!

      I love Sandy Castle! It says she is not for sale though? But if she is someone should buy her.

        Hope it works out for both of you! I am not a mare person but she caught my eye right away b/c she exudes so much power... and the wise eye she has! I joked that if I were to get her (via a winning lottery ticket) I would hand her over to someone else... like my friend/coach who taught me how to ride!

          Trip to the Races

          So last Thursday we made a trip to the track to watch the races. I brought along my camera and tried to get some neat photos from the stands. Among the FLF racing were Senegal, Six Roses Gone, Dazzling Derek, Regal Encounter, and YNV Me so I thought I'd post some racing pics of them that I took

                    Shannon, thanks for the great pictures!
                    Wow, look at that trot on YNVMe! I saw her move on a lunge line at a farm last summer, and I thought she was a lovely mover -- this picture really shows that. With that reach and flat knees she should light up the hunter ring! The poor girl had two years off taking it easy, but since no one stepped up to give her a good forever home her last year, her owner/trainer felt she had to put her back to racing work. Surely there must be someone out there who loves flashy red mares as much as I do (but who doesn't already have her stalls and hands full with 3 Finests).

                      New horses have been posted and no ones talking about them!!! This thread shouldn't be at the bottom of page 4. *This is my attempt at a bump.*

                      Anyway, everyone at the farm are doing well. And there may be a new addition named Deckster...I'll let you guess who that might be

                          Magic Cocktail is only three, so he will grow. Yes, he is indeed a well balanced cutie!
                          Thanks for the bumps, Shannon and J! There will soon be yet three more horses posted from our Monday trip, plus videos for several of them.
                          I didn't get to see them all, but one that I did see, Madeline's Melody, is just lovely, and so quiet and sweet. I see major show hunter potential here, with her quality looks. And the other team was raving about Celebrating Sarah, who is by Aptitude out of an Awesome Again mare, and is a half sister to a stakes winner.
                          Another one to be posted soon is a very sweet and pretty and completely sound 3 yo filly with only one race -- Unhook My Sarong. Watch out for her (although we need to go back to get full conformation photos).
                          With two already placed, and new listings starting to come, Finger Lakes Finest Thoroughbreds is indeed fully back in the saddle for 2012!

                            for those of us who like to be closer to the ground than the clouds... he is perfect. Looks a lot like Cuervo, though this guy has better looking bone than my boy. Plus, he'll grow as he is only 3y. I saw his name and thought, if that lottery ticket I bought to day pays off... first the farm, then the second FLF... Magic Cocktail just has to come home (Magic Cocktail, Take Me Flying... I sense a psychodelic theme here...) LSD Farms???? (*just kidding*)... more like, Tiki Bar Ranch... hahahahahaha...

                              I thought I would testify for Unhook My Sarong... her half brother (by Hook and Ladder) is at my stable, and last summer in a 4-show series got either champion or reserve in the baby greens at every show! I've also seen him do the 3' jumpers and he got either reserve or champion.

                                I like Run Mickey Run. I love older horses, he does look calm and sweet. I assume if they stayed sound that long they will be good under saddle for me.

                                  I love her....and I rarely even look at mares. There is something special about that one.

                                  Some very nice horses available right now.....
                                  "look deep into his pedigree. Look for the name of a one-of-a-kind horse who lends to his kin a fierce tenacity, a will of iron, a look of eagles. Look & know that Slew is still very much with us."

                                    SO many lovely horses! Someone take a look at Jethro and take that lovely boy home!! He looks like he could be a nice husband horse with his big size or maybe a lovely hunter type with his beautiful face and topline <3 <3

                                      Someone should get Futile Attempt. 5, 16.1, not raced, quiet and clean legged, only $500?
                                      She'll fill out and be nice. So what if she has a gelding head

                                        I love the look of Jethro! But $3000?! You've got to be kidding right?! I often wonder when looking at organizations like this one and CANTER how the trainers think their prices are valid? Everyone's talking about how bad this economy is, horses are being abandoned and starved, and they want that price tag for a track trained tb that may have issues or soundness probs?! Look at all the classified sites, there are retrained tbs with show miles going for less. It's funny too how the price goes higher if the horse is tall or nicely colored/marked. If they really want to find them homes, price them realistically.
