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!

  • AQHA people, care to critique this pedigree?

    My little rescue filly:

    http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/seberts+smokin+barbie

    I'm also trying to figure out how tall her dam was. Anyone know where I can find out that info?

    My girl is a little palomino, she may end up being a roan. We'll see when she sheds out. Any input as to what you'd guess her personality to be, what she would excel at, etc, would be great!

    She looks like she's got some good ranch breeding.

      What bloodlines do you see that indicate that? I know halter lines, and some racing lines, but am completely uneducated on ranch QHs.

        All that good old QH foundation: Poco Bueno, Dry Doc, Leo, Vandy, Skip, Hancock... don't see anything that I recognize as popular today (but I am NOT a QH person or all that into current trends). And I'd guess (PURELY guess) that the dam's in that 15.h range.

        Have fun with her!

          Boy, that's a blast from past and a pretty traditional cow horse pedigree from waaay back. Not familiar with any of the closer up relatives but I'd guess you got a very sensible little gal there that will be eager to please.

          Also guess 15 handish and staying a palomino.

          If she does stay palomino they do have at least one registry so, if you have the QH papers, you could look into double registry to enhance future resale efforts.

          Do you call her Barbie? How cute for a little palomino. Perfect match for the right young lady wanting a good all around type.

              Thanks for the input everyone! I actually call her "Fame". She definitely seems to be a pretty level-headed little horse. She's pretty badly stunted from being malnourished and starved, but hoping she'll start growing again here soon and get up to her full potential!

                  cutting bloodlines are not noted for being tall. My daughter has a cutting bred gelding that is about 14.2. However, he's built like a tank and can sit right down in the dirt when he wants. Very, very powerful and athletic.

                    I'm hoping my little girl will fill out like that! My other QH has a decent amount of halter bloodlines, so she's a very big girl. It would be nice if they could share some tack!

                      With palominos (and some other colors) the color of the horse's eyelashes will be the body color. You should be able to see if she will be a light or more golden palomino color.

                        Interesting, I never knew that! Her eyelashes are white, or maybe VERY light cream.

                        Here's a picture of her cute little face:

                            Awww, youngin's are so fun to look at! Those eyelashes look a little darker than her winter coat but that should be your body color when she sheds out this spring.

                              Judging by her head profile in that second pic? She favors the foundation lineage-check the shallow mouth, short nose with smallish nostril compared to some breeds (oldtimers say it keeps the dust out when trailing cattle), big cheek/jowl and small ear. Looks very much like the King breds and she has a bunch of that on top. Google a horse called Poco Bueno, she has that same head. PB was an own son of King (one of the first to be accepted into the AQHA registry) and a very prolific and popular sire back in the 50s and early 60s.

                              If the rest follows that, she will be a stout little thing and pretty agile/catty quick but sensible. Also hard to fit for bits.

                              We want a picture in about 90 days when she has shed out, beefed up and can loose the blanket.
                              When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.

                                Good to know! Her sire is advertised as "98% foundation"... I don't know a whole lot about foundation QHs (except that I like them!).

                                Any suggestions on a bit when the time comes? She has a lot of catching up to do growth-wise, so it probably won't be until she's coming 4 at the earliest that we'd start thinking of saddle breaking.

                                    Looking at that pedigree again, she has a ton of color on there...lots of palomino, buckskin, dun, grulla and a few greys. Our genetically expert color breed fans should be able to tell you more.

                                    Bits...well the Western catalogues and shops will have the widths you need...something like 4 3/4". Usually you will need to set a jointed snaffle high or it looks like they about spit it out, it can hit the teeth. And thick mouthpieces are out. Because it is so shallow, you will probably find a ported style is going to sit better-thats one reason why so many of the Western bits are ported.

                                    With English tack, you may have to go Pony or Ayrab but the small nose and big jowls mean the browband won't be long enough...ahhhh memories. But she looks like a fun project.

                                      Hm, I've actually never used anything ported, so that might be a new adventure for me!

                                      Yeah she does have a little bitty head, but the QH jowls are definitely there. Her ears are the size of a mini's, they're so cute!

                                      She's definitely a fun little girl, and I can't wait to see her continue to gain weight, grow, and bloom!
