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!

      Boy... that's a horse I would snatch if I could and I'm not even a mare person, though I have a feeling she would take no time to convert me

        Happy New Year -- and Thank You for a very successful 2012!

        2012 has been an amazing year for Finger Lakes Finest Thoroughbreds. Our listings helped place 143 horses into new homes -- and our volunteers and affiliated groups were personally involved in linking a majority of these lucky horses with their equally lucky new people.

        This is a record number of horses placed for the trainer listings! Other milestones for 2012 include the launch of our new website, which has drawn many rave reviews-- and helped place over 90 horses just since it launched in mid-August; the launch of our Facebook page which has been very successful in drawing buyers to the horses and was getting over 5000 hits in many weeks; the return to active service of some previous volunteers and the addition of several new volunteers; the establishment of our complete not-for profit status.

        But certainly the best milestones of all have been the heartfelt thanks we have received from the trainers at Finger Lakes and the many happy updates from people who have brought a FL Finest into their lives! So keep those happy updates coming.

        Thank you to everyone who stepped up to provide a good new home to a FL Finest, and our best wishes for many successes in the New Year, and many more.

              Terrific news about OHW! I loved her movement when I took her listing in the early summer -- a fancy hunter or sport horse in the making. Looks like SFI is the home to quite the great string of FL Finests -- Bro and lots of girls!

                    Great news -- Genuine Offer, aka Bella, has found her person, and is staying at the lovely Stampede Farm near Geneseo NY to be retrained as an event horse. Last weekend I was talking to the farm's owner and trainer about the mare, and she was raving about how athletic, scopey, and brave she is. I just know Bella is going to make a spectacular eventer! We look forward to what are sure to be great updates.

                    • Trying to get in touch with the trainer, John Ross, about the mare Next Top Model. Haven't had any luck :/ Anyone know if she is still available? Or how I can reach him beyond the phone number listed. Email maybe?

                        Somewhere I have the phone number for Steve Murtough, who is the actual owner of this lovely mare. I will dig it out from my piles of FLF notes, and send it to you. I last spoke with Steve in late Nov/early Dec., and at that time he was firm on his price and said he would find a place to keep her over the winter. When I spoke with John at FL near the end of the meet, he said he did not yet know where Steve was planning to take the mare for the winter.

                        And what a gerat report form Horsecents on Tanner! The Lucinda's do have an eye for a horse, don't they? We all look forward to many more great posts about his progress -- see the thread Finger Lakes Finest Roll Call, for you and anyone else to post your updates!

                        • I had Tanner at my farm for the winter of his 2/3 yr old year. I thought a lot of him and really tried to promote him on the horse listings. I'm enjoying the updates immensely!

                                • That's too bad. ^^ Wish I could grab her and give her another chance. If only I could sell my place and get the new farm we have an offer in on, I'd have a ton of pasture and space to take on another.

                                    Yes, poor Broadway's Stardust indeed. At the end of the racing season in 2011 she went to a young teen near Watertown NY, to what we were assured would be a forever home. Then we got reports that while the girl loved the mare, her "trainers" were not into OTTBs or the mare, and were urging her to get a quiet shuffling old quarter horse instead. So the sweet little mare wound up in the place near Binghamton, where she is now once again for sale through Craig's List.
                                    I sure do hope someone steps up to give her a truly great home where she will be for along time. As I recall, she is very sweet, quiet and sensible, but has a slight parrot mouth.
                                    Here's hoping the COTH network helps keep this one from the fate of too many listed through Craig's list.

                                    • News on another FLF Alumnus... GOOD news

                                      It's funny how memory works... I bumped into a friend of mine while doing laser tx on a horse. She shows me her new "project" horse, a leggy OTTB she just got while her other one takes a year off with a mysterious foot problem. I ask the name and she says "Justin [her husband] named him Finnley." To which I say "I meant, what's his Jockey Club name?" to which she says "Repetal"... Ah-hah! I tell her I think he was off the FLF listing and tap away on my smartphone. Sure enough:

                                      Repetal

                                      So he has a good home for now. This friend is a small animal vet and, even if he were to not work out for her, the only time I have seen her place horses she is particular about it. I have an internal (and totally spontaneous) feeling that even if he doesn't work for her, he might for her husband (why else would you give your BH naming rights? hehehe...).

                                        Great news, FF! I remember Repetal -- a big leggy bay of Christine Attwood's that we listed early last season. A COTHer in Florida who retrains OTTBs for sport careers took him from the track --and now it looks like he flourished in her training program and has found a good new home, and with a Finest fan as his vet. hooray!
