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!

  • so happy. Keep the good news coming!! Getting 3 FLF... wow... how generous!

    Comment


    • Thanks Sparky! I think you're absolutely right that Peaches (Pride of Paris) could tear up a cross-country course. She is very athletic and springy!

      Round Not Sleek is kind of a sad girl and I think would blossom with some TLC. Dade City was just adorable and I think his trainer would be delighted if he went home with someone who would appreciate him and give him the loving and care he gets with her.

      Hope the updates keep rolling in. Many thanks to everyone who has gone the extra mile for the Finests!

      • Thank you all for the support! The drive seemed so long because of all the nasty rain and traffic but it was worth it as Catillac Cutie is in my barn!
        Wahoo!
        I think her name is hilarious and she is indeed a cutie. I told my husband that she is not staying forever but we will see! So far she is a little "up" but tomorrow and in the coming days we will have a better feeling for who she really is.

        • oh the little lies we have to tell our husbands!! ie the horse my daughter got yesterday (on trial) belongs to her trainer... ok! Actually she has him on trial for as long as it takes for her to figure out if he is what she wants. Imagine ... owners more interested that horse and rider fit rather than getting paid up front!!!
          I am still rooting for many FLF...

          • Oh my Cornerstone, you and your husband are fabulous. Cutie will reward you and bless you for years to come, I'm sure of it. Please e-mail me so I know where I can send a donation towards her shipping.

            I'm putting another urgent plea out there for another race mare, Dance Cocoa Dance, who is in dire straits. Her placement fell through and now she is facing the clock. She won 3 races this year and we know little else about her other than she is a 4 y.o. dark bay filly who someone else has described as "a fabulous horse". She is still on the track in Barn 17. If anyone wants to see her, please just go to the track and take a peek. She is in stall 2 and that's as much as I can post at this point.

            Charing Hounds, if you're still in the office do you think you could go there and take pics and post them on our Facebook page? Anyone with questions please e-mail me at Marjorie.Linn@flhealth.org.

            You've all been so generous and giving. Maybe we can pull off one more miracle.

              She actually raced really well, too, so if you go to Equibase, look up her races, and then go to the Fingerlakes site, you can watch replays of her races where they follow her after the end of the races, for some trot and canter shots.

              She looks big and well-built, while still retaining that lovely, delicate TB mare look.

              • Here are a couple of pics of her off Facebook. Not shot at the best angle, but she looks like a nice girl! Who wants to bring her home?

                Jingling and Enabling like crazy! I'm an expert at justification so if anyone needs a little push, just say the word and I'll come up with masterful reasons you need her

                • Still enabling for Desert Doctor, she needs a new home! She raced 24x in 2 years, she obviously is not a racehorse and needs vacation from the track. Really wish I could afford another right now as she's such a sweetie! Just think, she could be that nice quiet hunter for a kid or AA...

                  • Sew Your Notes is home and literally tearing up her stall. She walked on the trailer like a champ and was very anxious to get out of it when we got home. She is currently in a 12x24 stall that she is trying to redecorate into a 36x12 by kicking down a wall . If the weather holds, tomorrow she will go out into the round pen. I don't want to risk her slipping if its rainy/snowy out. She is definitely feeling good since she last ran about a week ago and is probably confused why she is not galloping in the mornings.
                    Other than the wall (which has been repaired) she is a good girl and seems larger than 16h but it maybe her shoes which come off on Friday. She has a gorgeous head and I am in love....cannot wait to see her when she fills out and matures a bit more.

                    Honestly I had no intention of getting another horse into the barn yet but this board and family members and Suzanne helping with some confusion helped enable me :-)

                      • I'm buying New York New York! He must leave the track by Thursday and I'm having trouble finding shippers headed South that aren't already full. He needs to be shipped to Conyers, GA which is abt 30 min from Atlanta. I've already tried Cobblestone and Tap. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance!

                                      foundationmare, my last day was Friday. Wish I'd checked in earlier. I can drive out tomorrow & get some shots if you think it might help. The two pics of her don't look like they were taken at the track. Are you sure that's where she is now?

                                      • I'd like to add that I'm looking for a home for Five Aces.
                                        I took him home to get him off the track where he did NOT need to be anymore. I have a little farm and sometimes (when possible), my place is like a halfway-house for a racehorse that needs a place to go. He's a 5 year old dark bay gelding with a unique blaze and 3 socks. One might consider him a double unicorn, because he has 2 little "horns" on his forehead - I kid you not! Surely that makes him "magical" (lol).
                                        He does have a knee and will probably require more time off. I haven't had recent x-rays done but he has improved with the time off that he's had so far. He is pasture sound and turned out with others. Low to middle-man in pecking order.
                                        About 8 weeks after he arrived, I tacked him up, walked him about on a lunge line & got on him just to get a gauge on him. He walked along peaceably on the lunge line, but was more interested in the grass. He stood nicely while I mounted from the block with no assistance (I'm alone, so I have to be careful). While I sat on him, I noticed that he had a very balanced, "everything fits" kind of feel. I walked him around the round pen and he was very agreeable, bending and doing fig 8's, halting, and backing nicely. I trotted him about 1/2 to 1 turn of the round pen in each direction, and though he didn't nod, he was definitely uneven at the trot (left front knee). I haven't done anything else with him since and he seems to be sounder now (several months later). If someone is seriously interested I will pay to have some rads done of his knee but I think he will be suitable for light riding. He's a good boy and I'd like to see him be someone's "special" horse.
                                        Here's a link to his facebook album:

                                        • Jingling for Dance Cocoa... I am very worried when you say she has to go by Friday... does not sound like she would go to a good place. Jingling.
