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!

    Too bad, not the same horse. I looked the one you named up on pedigree query, sadly, the obgyn I knew was at least 17 years old before she passed in a tragic pasture accident. She too, though, was a bag of bones before my friend got her and gave her a great life.

      I stand by the CANTER PA listing from years ago...The poor horses name was "Our Roach".

        Amateurs, all of you. My first horse had the worst name----ever. Bimbo's Crazy King. Just stupid.

        Stunning Appy, my upper level dressage horse. STUPID name. His dam was Crazy Excuse and his sire was Prince's Bimbo (by Prince Plaudit.) I always wondered why they didn't call him Bimbo's Crazy Kid, until I miraculously ran into his older brother at a show with that name.

        When I started showing dressage I was in my defiant, annoyed by all of the stupid German horse names phase, so I registered and showed him under Bymbeaux. It was funny as hell listening to announcers trying to say his name in a cool way, and I could see judge's pronouncing it as I'd rider down the centerline and figure out how to say it and start laughing.

          I remember a TB named Turkeyfoot Road. I owned a TB mare named Woody's Amni. Hubby shod a mare named Hellb*tch. And another named Barmaid. Found a pony for a kid who named him Prince Donut....

                Oh I love pony names, favorite by far... Turtle. Or Gimli (he is not a happy pony, mean kicker to boot!).

                  I knew a cremello named Midnight. Also a dipstick Paint that bashed his head up in the trailer on the way over and was named Staples from that adventure (ie was stapled back together).

                  I think some of the current QH names can be goofy when you end up with Skippo Bar Leo King Zip or whatever. How many ancestors can you fit into one name?

                  I am fond of my baby's name though. I am sure people think it is goofy until they think about it.

                  My husband is a Marine Corps veteran and he has always lived by the saying/belief that there is no greater honor than to lay your life down for your country.

                  So, he named our first foal "No Greater Honor".

                  He said he wants to name the next one Pursuit of Glory

                          Standardbreds currently racing a the local track include Dimebag, Off The Menu and I have to question just why would you name a trotter I Gotta Run?

                          One race that made me laugh to listen too was when Retail was in the same race with Don't Drag Me Shopping.

                          One of my favorites both in name and horses is Golden Trip. But he's my baby, so maybe I'm a we bit biased. Would make a great name for a show horse!

                            I made the acquaintance of a man on a trail ride once riding a gorgeous little gaited palomino named Little Gay Pony. When I asked why the name, he said he called him that because he was so dainty (said he was part Arabian and certainly looked it) and had a high-pitched whinny that made him sound "gay".

                            Turned out he was riding the pony up there that weekend to sell him. Nice little horse too, sleek and shiny, smooth and silk under saddle, easy on the eyes, impeccable manners and the perfect size for a small adult/large child. Once word got out there was a steady line of people stopping by the guy's campsite after the first day to look at him and he was snapped up by a family in no time at all. I imagine the first thing they did was change his name.

                                My horse's JC name is Isleshowthedevil.

                                I also knew a jumper once that was named Harvey Wallbanger.

                                    My off the track appendix is named "Strollin Spirit." I hate it.

                                    I think it sounds as if a horse crazy young girl named him. Though, I suppose it kind of made sense with his sire (Coup de Kas) and dam (Strollin Roon).

                                    I have been sorely tempted to change it but I think it would cost a fortune with at least three organizations I would have to pay to update everything.

                                      TB's seem to get the worst, in the naming dept.

                                      I once looked at a 4 yr. old TB mare off the track as a potential broodmare. Lovely, feminine rose-grey mare....still very racing fit when I saw her.

                                      Her name was "Aunt Blabby". Egad!

                                      Of course the name is not why I didn't buy her...too light-boned in the leg for my breeding program.

                                      Who the heck would name a little filly FOAL Aunt Blabby?.

                                        There was a horse at a show once- I think an app- named Butt Neigh Kid. You can imagine how that came acrossed when it was announced that the next competitor was so and so riding Butt Neigh Kid...

                                        My TB's registered name is BB Bullett. Including the double T. Really.
