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!

    Good Deal NB. It's a great thing.. I used to have a friend whose dog name was Fire. I live in the SW in an area prone to fire season instead of summer. So yelling FIRE into the woods was NOT a good idea. I made her go door to door and introduce her dog to the neighbors so they knew she was calling for her dog.

      That's what I thought too! Or at least some kind of draft breed.

      He looks like a Fife to me. It's musical, to fit with the theme

        I agree with the posters who say standardbred. We have two trotters that have that shape of neck and head! And the tail flagging and head tossing, both down to an artform! Not to mention the feathering, both of them have it, especially the two year old. He's blessed with the hair gene, has a double mane that splits down the middle.

            Well Mystery Boy was nutty this morning - I thought I'd put him down in the arena while I got ready for work so he can start easing on to the grass. He ran himself inso a lather and screamed the whole time. I brought him back up after 20 minutes and attempted to rinse him off - he was too worked up. I can't wait to get through this anxiety but we need to do it quickly because I'm leaving for a couple of weeks to the middle east soon, leaving him with my husband.

            We've decided we want a music themed name. Here are some of the names on the list (thanks for the suggestions!)

            Reed (!)
            Solo (positive thinking!)

            I think once he settles we can name him. This morning I wanted to name him dumb@$$ for getting so worked up when he could have been eating grass. *sigh*

              I forgot - ultimately I think he's STB, with some QH, ARAB and possibly some TB. Maybe the STB was crossed with an ArabxAppendix . What do we call mutt horses besides "grade"? He's my first cross bred mogrel!


              • #47
                I think qh/stb is very credible. It explains a lot esp the active hind leg in the trot.

                I actually thought stb but it's not a common choice so went with other guesses.

                But yes- stb/qh makes sense.

                Just to challenge a myth about stbs- The stbs (trotters) I have known have perfectly good canters if they have not been trained not to canter.


                • Original Poster

                  My STB trotter canters, but it's not pretty. She'd rather go from trot to gallop.

                    I think Willow is too girly for a gelding. That was my horse's name when I got him, and I shortened it to Will. I figured he was emasculated enough already .

                    I like Reed. And he's really cute--good luck with him!


                    • #50
                      Another vote for Reed, for obvious reasons! He's really cute!
                      What's wrong with you?? Your cheese done slid off its cracker?!?!


                      • #51
                        I think he's from a Cleveland BayXWelsh Cob sire and Morgan/Standardbred dam.

                        My TBs and QHs all toss their heads around like that if they're feeling sassy.


                        • Original Poster

                          Now that's a nice mix Fillabeana! My TB, Qh and Arab all toss their heads like that too - I don't think that's a breed trait. Probably just a individual thing.

                          Funny, this is my current herd:

                          and this guy who could be a mix of all of them (I've always said, I wish I could have the best traits of them all, in one horse).......


                          • #53
                            Throwing my guess in the mix: Morgan/ Standardbred. Are you near a lot of Amish per chance? No matter what he is, he looks like a really nice horse. Have fun with him

                              Yes, lots of Amish around here! That would be a good cross for endurance too, wouldn't it?

                                Yep I think that would be an awesome endurance cross!

                                  It's also hard to tell because the horse is wound up. But my guess is something with Standardbred in it based on his head.

                                    He looks like an Arab/QH to me....

                                      My STB pacer that I lost this spring had the best W-T-C that I have ever had. He never paced and I remember that when he was racing he never paced unless you put the hopples on him. From the time he stepped off the trailer at my house I never saw him pace a step. People often mistook him for a Morgan/Arab cross or if they say the top of his freezebrand thought he was a mustang. They are great endurance horses and I have friends that competed endurance that I trail rode with that made numerous offers on him. I sure miss him and am not sure if I will ever be able to replace him.

                                      Enjoy your new boy

                                        Some new pictures:
                                        Best I could get as a confo shot by myself:
                                        His giant feet that I can't wait to see trimmed:

                                        He learned how to get a bath today. Twice. I don't tolerate horses that don't do baths so if that's all he learns this week, I will be satisfied.

                                        And my daughter named him, Radio . Which suits him perfectly.

                                          Reed means weedy I think and he sure is not that.

                                          How about Presto, he sure moves it.

                                          Just saw the pictures, he doesn't has the typical morgan hooves, but that doesn't mean he doesn't has some in there.

                                          Radio is a very imaginative name and if it fits, good for your daughter.
