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!

      Ummm, why would they? Both seem to agree that filly should be euthed (alto directly, crockpot saying more that the filly might've been salvageable had OP put in the effort when she was a yearling); I saw neither jumping up and down wanting this thing.

      OP seems to want to euth, most posters here including the 2 you mentioned seem to be on board with the idea of euthing (if not supportive of OP's handling of the entire situation - and now if the sales ads are indeed about the filly under discussion, I don't see how anyone could support the OP) - why would anyone else need to bother about the damned filly? OP will kill it, even if she receives a roasting on here instead of supportive buttpatts.

        COTH usually has some very good sleuths, but I'd like to believe that the horse that the OP is offering for sale is a different horse, and that her ads fairly represent the horse she has for sale. There's just too much not to like about the whole situation if the filly being discussed in this thread is the same one she's advertising for sale as sound. I hope the filly has a peaceful passing as soon as possible.
        It's 2017. Do you know where your old horse is?

          I have gotten bored with these threads. Euthanise, likely the best solution or at least the most humane. Stop agonizing and just move on

              Sorry Mistyblu, you don't have the correct horse. This horse is not and has not been on the market due to her issues. I would not sell a filly with uveitis or with any other chronic or hidden issue. I am an honest breeder.

              Working with the vet right now on the kindest way to let her go. It's too bad that everyone that jumped on me hasn't seen this filly. Other then the current uvietis bout she's had a good life. She is a happy, healthy filly. I can't change your minds because she is not your horse, you don't know her history and haven't walked in my shoes. I do care about this filly though, I've admitted I screwed up, and I'm trying to do what is BEST FOR HER. Not what is the easiest for me at this point. Thank you to everyone that has PMed me notes of support. You don't realize how much they all mean to me.

                  ??? Not sure what you are talking about. This filly is the only filly we've ever had that has been difficult. All others we've been able to handle, have gone to new homes, trained by their owners. Owners rave about them, have repeat buyers. Unfortunately Mistyblu is incorrect. Imagine that!

                      Is this not your recent ad on Dreamhorse for your "other" filly?
                      She is sound with no vices. Strong filly with correct conformation and lovely mover. She was sold as a filly and purchased back. She unfortunately has had minimal handling and is not halter broke yet. Price will increase with more training.

                        Great. We are meanies who point this out. I don't believe the OP has raised 50 foals. Sorry, I don't believe it.

                        Good sleuthwork, Misty Blue. Reading through the OP's first post, I was just horrified that anyone would knowingly let a bout of Uveitis go untreated in a horse. I've had Uveitis and it is excruciating. Maybe if you'd experienced something like that personally, OP, you would have worked a little harder to gain that filly's trust, treat her eyes and thus, change the course of her life. This is one of the saddest posts I've read in a long time. Poor filly.
                        I have to say this thread has taken an interesting turn. After all of this information, all I can say is the OP has no business breeding horses. Period.

                        There is no excuse for the poor treatment this filly has endured. This horse is here because YOU chose to create it, and you have done one of the worst things a human can do in this situation which is let her down.

                        Please do all horses a favor and don't breed anymore. Please do this filly a favor and either put the time money and effort into making her comfortable, or spoil her rotten to the best of your ability and then kindly let her go.

                          Oh give me a break. OP is a BREEDER, not a first-time clueless owner. I expect any BREEDER worth that title to either ensure their youngstock is able to be handled, or to do the right thing and be ready to dispatch it.
                          And I'm totally behind making a BREEDER feel bad is they admit they can't handle their stock, don't have the facilities such as chutes to get it vet care if it can't be handled normally, and don't even have the balls to dispatch it without whining all over a forum about their ~feeeelings~.

                          No concern for the filly's future is needed from forum members, OP will clearly kill the unfortunate critter. As she should've done a while ago.

                            I think we all agree this filly should be euthanised asap.

                            We have actually been more concerned for the well being of this filly than the OP have for the past 3 yrs.

                            Sadly, what is typical are neglectful owners...

                              Well said, JenM, from start to finish.

                              This thread was sad two days ago, and has gotten more disappointing today.

                              OP, I'm unclear why you wish folks could see her as though that would change their opinion. She's not halter broke, I'm assuming her feet have not been done, vaccines not done etc etc etc. I'm not sure how seeing her would change the deck you've stacked against her.

                                Born the same month of the same year, not halter broke.

                                4 foals that year, only one was born in November.

                                Not to mention you've said all other horses/young stock are halter broke, handled, etc and you state in multiple ads that this one isn't halter broke and hasn't been handled much.

                                Equinehits:
                                a Nov 09 filly. She is the victim of a winter baby and a busy summer. She is coming around but is not halter broke yet
                                She is a pretty mover with a typey face and short back. No vices, no conformational faults or health issues.
                                Equine.com
                                coming three in November she is a ________ that will mature around 15.0 hands. Lovely mover with good conformation. She has not been worked with a lot. Price negotiable to a great home

                                Unless you've just never mentioned on your own website of another birth tht month in that year that you've also not handled at all or halter trained.
                                You jump in the saddle,
                                Hold onto the bridle!

                                  Thanks MBM, I think I'm going to step away from this thread since I'm working with my vet on a solution for the kindest euthanasia for this filly. Unfortunately I am now being pegged as someone else. We made some more headway today with the situation and are going to work more tomorrow. Everyone here seems to know all the answers. I didn't come expecting anyone to hold my hand and knew that there would be backlash. But until I was on COTH I didn't realize people donated horses to cat sanctuaries for meat. That was the first I had heard of euthanasia by gun as a valid option. After talking with some breeders I realized it was more humane in many ways. Just thought it may be an option that would be easier for her. Vet is still formulating a plan.

                                  Keep sleuthing Mistyblu, you may figure me out yet! Unfortunately for you, my secrets are still safe. I'm going to do my best for this filly. I know I've failed her with her handling but I'm trying to make it up to her from here on out.

                                          Working with the vet right now on the kindest way to let her go. It's too bad that everyone that jumped on me hasn't seen this filly. Other then the current uvietis bout she's had a good life. She is a happy, healthy filly. I can't change your minds because she is not your horse, you don't know her history and haven't walked in my shoes. I do care about this filly though, I've admitted I screwed up, and I'm trying to do what is BEST FOR HER. Not what is the easiest for me at this point. Thank you to everyone that has PMed me notes of support. You don't realize how much they all mean to me.
                                          So you have ANOTHER filly that isn't halter broke either??? Please, just stop breeding. Just STOP. You are doing a disservice to these horses.
