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!

    Def get him back (for sure)- you've wondered where he was all these years and now you know where he is.

    If you let him go- you'll always wonder again.

    However, don't put yourself in HUGE debt to save him. See if they would consider a payment plan, a trade (if you have a horse you're trying to sell/place)....

    Cheap is probably really cheap- the economy is hard right now and they probably just want him to go to a good home.... They probably figure he will never pass a Prepurchase exam anyways.

    Good luck and keep us posted!

          Yes you will get him.

          And I am willing to give a dribble for you to get him home- I don't have much to give, but I have a sneaking suspicion that may others will also give some $ to bring him home to you--no need for a loan- he can be our miracle pony for 2008...!

            Well, I hope you realize the "voice of reason" thing was merely a disclaimer of sorts as I am well known to go way beyond where I reasonably should for my own critters. I'd be finding a way as well. Best wishes. Have you mentioned this to your daughter yet?
            A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

              hehe you guys are all so wonderful. I thought maybe everyone would think I was a brick short a load here. I am sure he is in the Atlanta area. He was with Imtiaz Annees for a time and I think he might be at Inyazura now. These were the last places I knew him to be standing for sale.

              I will not go deeply into debt I promise. After all, I can go to the same auction cant I. I know they will work with me, after all, they are paying big bucks monthly to keep him with a trainer and sadly, he doesnt pass Vet. So, his value is nothing, really. I am sure it costs 800 or so a month to keep him for sale, think how much I will save them. These are good people, I have worked with them before and I am sure they will do what is right for Press and myself. I had an opportunity once before to purchase him but way out of my league and didnt. this time, he will be in my range or they would not have contacted me.

              I will post everything I knwo the minute I hear back. I told them yes, he is sold, Sold to me. I will take him home and work this out. So, when I can tell you guys where he is, we can all put our heads together. I need to bring him home and he needs to come home. The road has ended. I can hardly wait now.

              Now remember, Nov 8th is volunteer appreciation day here at the farm. An even better excuse to come now, you can meet the redhead of which I speak LOL. And visit your own special friends.

              This was the RIGHT decision cause it feels so good.

                  You will never regret bringing him home to where he belongs. Once he is home you can give him the forever home he deserves. Finances always has a way of working out.
                  I would get him home in a heartbeat.
                  I am sure that with the current horse market situation that you are actually doing these people a favor.

                      Let us know when he's home!! I let go of a very very special one years ago (had to) and still think of him all the time, even dream about him. He's gone now (or the oldest horse in the world). I still miss him. I'm so happy for you!!

                        Oh great he is over near Athens? He is at least at a good barn there, my friend used to board her old eventer there when she was in pharmacy school at UGA.

                        Glad he is in GA and you won't have far to go to pick him up.

                          Yay for Press and Yay for the owners who did the right thing.

                            Ok Imtiaz Anees does have him. He is in Newnan GA. He is owned by both the lady that contacted me and by Imtiaz. The lady will give me her half but Imtiaz wants his $1000. There is a hunter barn prepared to pay $2000 for him on Friday. I wrote Imtiaz as well did Karen (his other owner) and begged him to give me till Monday to come up with the money. I can do it. So, all I need is the $1000 and that wont be that hard. Karen will eat her $1000 to see him come home.

                            I told Imtiaz what he already knows. The hunter barn wont keep him. He WILL throw someone once too often and he is going to go to auction. There is no doubt. So, with his one half owner on my side, I know he is coming home. I have my horse show on Saturday and we will be close to Newnan and Sidepasser also will headed this way with a trailer and so, we will get him back here.

                            I just hope Imtiaz has a heart. That he realizes since he knows first hand how I followed Press. I met Imtiaz in Kentucky 4 years ago when I saw Press was entered there. hahahah I know he thought that blubbering woman was insane but I begged him then to let me know if ever he was for sale. He was only the trainer at that time. Not his choice but he will remember. I stopped him in the warm up arena LOL.

                            I cant wait to post pics. I still have all his photos from his growing up years. Pressy will be so happy. hahahha of course, its a new barn but his old friends are still here. Same pasture, same friends.

                              Good luck with getting Press home. How lucky that you've been able to keep track of him. Press doesn't know how good he has it!

                                  Best wishes for Press! I know he will be happy to be home with you and your daughter! There is no doubt I would have done the same thing...well, actually, I did! I tracked my old first pony down years ago, and after several years of keeping tabs on her, was finally able to bring her home to my farm. She retired here and I had almost 10 more wonderful years with her, before she passed last year at age 44. You're doing the right thing!

                                        I moved in 2000 and had to leave my horses. It about destroyed me, even though I got them settled in good places.

                                        Well, fast forward about five years, and I had the chance to get one back because she was too old (27) to be a lesson horse any more. All I had to do was pay her shipping. I did it gladly and she's 31 and still fat and healthy.

                                        Then, lo and behold, I got the chance to get her son, a gelding, back. He was the one I lost track of and, like you, had some sleepless moments over. I had to pay $1,000 and his shipping.

                                        Those were two of the happiest moments of my life! Seeing the shipping trailers pull up and drop the ramp and those beloved faces peer out.

                                        I'd be glad to chip in the cost of a Starbucks or two for you, if needed.

                                          Take the loan and get him back. Seeing him in your own pasture and knowing he is taken care of the way he took care of your daughter will be well worth the $$ + interest.
