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 am once again tempted. The 3 that I have here from the last several years are relaxing in a large pasture and told me that there maybe room for one more. I like the girls with injuries, given enough time they become absolute angels. I like Quatorzes Girl as well..I have an older mare by the same sire and she can be a handful but not mean. But Hallistic is pulling at me. Are there any headshots of her?

      It has taken me awhile to get used to the new listing format as well..it has nothing to do with knowledge but rather the use (and the "I'm used to doing it this way" ) factor.

      I keep telling myself its too early in the season to find another filly/mare but of course my stallion thinks its the perfect time LOL

        Anon, There is a nice head shot of Hallistic that I just posted on our Facebook page. The link is below. If you step up for her that would be SOOOO wonderful. She seemed to be saying to us "please get me off the track and give me a chance!" She was very sweet.
        Her trainer's son -- who speaks good English unlike the trainer -- just got in touch with us saying she needs to move ASAP. They have another horse coming in that needsher stall. This really is an urgent situation -- tugs at our heartstrings too. Call the number listed for Angel, the son.

          Thanks Buffalo Colleen, I just read where she has been removed from the track and is now safe. I was laid up with a bad cold for 2 days but am glad that she landed safely.

            Just wanted to let everyone know that True Prospect and Wild for Summer both have new homes at the stable I board at. True P was bought by my trainer and is such a nice mare! WFS is the new buddy of a young boarder who tragically lost her first OTTB in Feb to a twisted gut.

                I saw Wild for Summer's (former) owner/trainer at the track yesterday, and they were thrilled that he went to such a great home. Summer was much loved by them, and will surely be much loved by the lucky young woman who now has him. This horse is such a sweetheart, and he deserves a doting person! I know they looked at many very nice horses, and I'm so happy that Summer was the chosen one.
                Heliodoro, I'm trying to find info on True Prospect. No hits on that name on the jockey club names registry; only hit on equibase is a Fla bred colt born 25 years ago. Who was the trainer of your trainer's new mare? Was she registered/papered yet? Even when we haven't yet listed a horse we love to keep track of all the FL Finests who find great new homes, and we are interested in their breeding so our knowledge base of lines that turn out well for sport keeps growing.
                I think your trainers' farm now has many more Finests than several of the trainers at the track! I am overdue for a visit to see them all.

                  I believe it's spelled Tru, not True. She's a big bodied chestnut mare who is just happy to do whatever you want! I don't believe she broke her maiden, just raced once or twice and then turned back out on pasture. I don't recall the trainer's name.

                  Brolio is doing very well. He's starting to figure out that while jumping is fun, he should probably listen to his rider more often than not! He went to his first xc school a few weeks ago and had no problems with the jumps (big watery ditch he needed a lead over, understandably!), but more with the jump-stop-jump some more. He is figuring out that standing after a small course of jumps is a nice break and not something to get worked up over!!

                    Thanks, Helio... still no hits on jockey club or equibase on tru paired with anything close to prospect.. I will try to find out her real ID from your trainer. Love it when people step up for chestnut mares!
                    Glad to hear Bro is learning to be patient! The amazing jumping talent is certainly there. I still would love to see him in the hunter ring.

                          Another group with a wide range is now posted. Bays, a gray, and a chestnut. Geldings and a mare, all good looking.

                          Some of the horses aren't even staying on the listings for the week before they are gone. If you like a horse, get a move on.

                          If you want the particulars on anyone, BC can probably weigh in on the ones that she has listed.

                            The FL Finests are flying off the listings!

                            R/w/O sure is right: so far this season, many of the beautiful TBs at Finger Lakes that we have listed have sold to great new homes in less than a week after we got their photos and write-ups posted on our website and FB. Some have even sold before we even got them posted, since shoppers came around to look and got a sneak preview. Four of the six horses I photographed last weekend have already sold, including two of the nicest ones I have seen in a while: Rutherford B and Metaxie.

                            And then just yesterday, we saw 5 more beauties -- I am just blown away by the quality of the horses we have been asked to list this season so far. FL Finests indeed!
                            For those who missed out on the stunning Rutherford B, we have just posted a young sound bay gelding named Andromeda's Destiny who is just as high quality a prospect -- and 1/3 the prce. We thought this horse was so impressive that we tried to talk the trainer into putting a higher price on him, but she said she is overwhelmed at the moment and really needs to downsize, so he is priced as an exceptional bargain. This one could go in any direction: show hunter, eventing, dressage. Hurry!
                            And then as we were wiping the drool off our faces over AD, the drool came right back when the stunning Ming's Revenge was pulled out for his photo session. What a handsome hunk of golden glory! And he is unraced, and his legs are as clean as the proverbial whistle. He has just been put into race training at the mature age of 6, because his breeders had too many to deal with. But they would also like to sell him before running him... but will try racing him if he doesn't sell fast. So please, someone who wants a gorgeous horse who is mature, kind, sensible, and a lovely mover, please spare him from ever having to race!
                            Oh, and then the very athletic lovely moving filly Winna Winna, and then Dade City, who just shouts great event prospect, and the puppy dog sweet gorgeous gray Lateef. A terrific group of new horses for your viewing pleasure!

                                  Anyone who still thinks TBs are wild, crazy, fire breathing dragons needs to go watch Dade City's video. He looks like he is a good soul. Just adorable!

                                    I agree Sparky! What a lovely gelding he is. His owner/trainer, shown in the video, loves her horses and it shows. If he doesn't get snapped up quickly I will be surprised.

                                      This was the weekend for unusual markings. There is a bay with flashy white markings with black spots and a warhorse ($500,000 in winnings!) who has the coolest white spot on his hip/thigh. There is a gray as well. Photos and video are up for those we have video of. Our volunteers braved the muggy weather so you can window shop from the comfort of your own home. Don't drag your feet if there is someone you really like.

                                        Also, there have been price drops on Tree Topper Chuck and Andromeda's Destiny if anyone was considering one of those two.

                                          I met Quad Aces last fall, turned out at the farm, and really LOVED him. Super cute, friendly, light on his feet. I wish I had room.
