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!

      I went up and looked at some Finests today for upper level eventing prospects. I LOVED, and I do mean LOVED, Magic Cocktail. I thought he'd be too small for what I want but he is probably 15.2 hands, bigger than I expected. We were 99.9% sure we would be bringing him home today but we unexpectedly found a different horse who is not an OTTB who we will be getting. I am still wondering if we should bring Magic Cocktail, aka Tank (YES! That is his nickname! He was fat when they first got him last year!) home ... My husband says no to that but I really, really liked him. He just turned three at the end of April so he is the perfect age. He was so sweet and had a lot of personality, along with being super athletic and they described him as having a lot of heart. Whoever ends up with him will be VERY VERY lucky ... Please someone buy him to save me from sneaking up there and bringing him home ... That horse just spoke to me!

      Florida Quaker wasn't my type of horse but she is a very smart mare and is a gorgeous color. Carol said she plans on running her on Thursday.

      Majestic One is on the farm and has had about 10 rides since coming off the track. He has lovely conformation, is very uphill, and has an impecable pedigree for eventing. I saw him go under saddle and he is QUIET and willing.

      Run Mikey Run is a complete gentleman and it's incredible how much money he has won and how well he has held up. He is one nice horse. Plus - his owner is PHENOMENAL and takes the absolute best care of his horses. He is honest and really cares about where his horses are going.

          Ugh, I keep pestering my husband about Magic Cocktail ... I have made no progress. We have 4 warmblood mares (one in foal, another to be bred soon ...), tomorrow we will bring home a new horse, and he says we can't have Magic since that would be 6. Boy did I love that horse and he is a steal at $500.

          Now he is saying it is my "only child-ness" kicking in. Poo!

          Here are some head shots my husband got of the handsome man.

            On facebook this morning an exercise rider posted an great up date on Madeline's Melody: " I have ridden this mare a dozen times and she is a really nice, easy horse to ride. She is sound and was always relaxed and never nervous. She would make a great 4h or pony club horse for a beginner novice rider. Would love to hear that she got a home!"

            If I were a parent this is a horse I'd feel very good about letting my teen ride. I came very close to buying her as a retraining project and still may.

              I can't wait until I am back in the market for an OTTB. Hopefully within the next year or two


              I was originally lusting over Jethro but I took a closer look at the posting for Madeline's Melody. She's a nice big girl and looks very calm and generally relaxed in her video. That's great to know that she has a quieter demeanor. She is definitely one I would consider looking at in person. If you do get her SEPowell, keep us updated on her. Looks like she'll be a great horse for someone.

                I try to drag my feet on these guys because my first choice if for one of you to benefit from the trainer's offerings. But if it looks like one of my faves needs a home I'll step up. I can't imagine Madeline's Melody won't find her person soon

                    I'm intrigued! Basically, looking for a turnout buddy--rideable is good but it doesn't need to be tall, strikingly marked, sound for jumping or intense athletics (thought preferably not in need of high maintenance, either) and TRACTABLE. Easily handled. #1 priority. As such, "old" is also not a bad thing. Cheap is also up there, especially if shipping is involved. (I mean, if I wanted to be SUPER cheap we could got to Shipsie and pull something out of the last-chance lot that even the KBs don't want, but no quarantine means that's out.)

                      I know who the freebies are and when the perfect one comes up I'll contact you. I thought one may be up this week but it looks like the owner has other plans for him. We shall see.

                                I know someone who will buy Magic Coctail when she has a chance to get back to the area with a trailer. Hope he's still there for her because she'll provide an excellent home.

                                And I'm very excited for Madeline's Melody. She's such a nice filly and it sounds like she went to an equally nice home.

                                And for the first time Finger Lakes Finest Thoroughbreds, INC brought home a horse. She needed a home immediately and so our board discussed it over the weekend and decided this was something we could do. Almost immediately a very kind person offered to contribute to her care. We picked her up on Monday and she has settled into my farm well.

                                You can follow her progress on our facebook page so look for her there if you'd like to know more about her.

                                    Updated listings

                                    There are several new horses on the listings and the pictures are now up as well. No greys, but several nice bits of eye candy in bay and chestnut. Several are young and unraced or lightly raced.

                                    BC - trying to talk my husband into one more. When I do get to come up, I need to go see Florida Quaker in person. I have been drooling over her pictures since they went up last year and her video made by heart go ba-bump. Need to get some things squared away here and then go into some more focused whining. Actually, I need to drag him along with me and see if he likes her as much as I do. Can't let you have all the fun.
