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!

        Oh my god. It's like I died and went to TB heaven. I LOVE Company Approval. I wish I could have him for my very own to make loffly babies. Except that I don't know anything about breeding. Or owning a stallion. Oh and I can't afford ANY horse right now. Details, details.

        omgih LOFF. Why don't I have teh monies??

          Hey, it looks like Company Approval used to stand at Xanthus Farm in Pennsylvania. Do you think they might be interested in him or his babies? I wish I could do something, I just don't have any funds for any horse. I hate to feel so helpless.

          Could $25 help anything?

              but 5 hours is probably too long for me to keep going "just a little further Dad" as he's driving the trailer unknowingly unaware that we are going to an auction.

                  Ivy Miss is very, very good looking for an 18-year-old broodmare. Selling open...she is in nice condition!

                    There are some very nice horses on that list - the With Approval babies are VERY Nice and well bred..

                    Also the Chesnut colt at the very end by Hot Shot Valor is well bred too..

                    Wish I were closer...

                    Has anyone called to see what they want for these babies?

                          bumpity bumpity boo!

                          Is anyone from COTH going?

                          Even if you can't take a horse, if everyone on here tells two or three people who can either contribute to the rescue fund, or who might know someone in the area, that would be awesome.

                          Again, folks from outside the area, ILEHC is willing to work with you to bid for you, if you're interested in any

                            You so can never meet my mother!!!

                            Her conversations include a "just do it" followed by "why not" & "oh just go ahead" with a "you only live once" sometimes thrown in. And the final one is "well we just won't tell your father".

                            My all time favorite was "I'll just turn him out & see how long until he notices". This is when I was 11 & we bought a pony while dear dad was at work. She then rationalized it to me (she was teaching me young) with "he's small, he poops small & he only eats a handful of grain". I love my mom.

                            Good luck shopping to anybody that goes. There are some good looking horses.

                              I really like Carrot Top (Western Playboy) pedigree -the sire line is the same as the famous xx sporthorse sire sacramento song?). And she also comes from the mare family of Palace music --the sire of Cigar (take a look at Come hither look) with the grand little current thrown in there.
                              (and she has Pretense who has the same mare line as Touch of class)

                                Has a donation fund been created that could be applied towards the most "at risk"? I can't take a horse, but can contribute an amount- would others also be willing to contribute a donation- perhaps the ILEHC is accepting donations? Anyone know?

                                  ILEHC is accepting donations and I believe will be applying them to the at risk types. Their contact info is on the first page.

                                    Thanks, I sent an email to them and will be donating. Hope others do to and that it will help! FYI, I've included a post on my blog, and in my facebook account and will update it with this donation contact information. I bet others have done so too, but just an idea for those who haven't! Spreading the word and including the donation contact information to all of your contacts may help- I sure hope so!

                                    There are probably many who would be willing like me to contribute an amount to go towards this, even if they can't buy or foster a horse. I hope that I hear back from ILEHC about my donation.

                                      Another shameless bump

                                      This place is just up the road a ways from me, but alas, I cannot take on another horse (was lucky enough to be able to sell one to a great home). I have, however, posted this all over my facebook and myspace pages, hoping that some of my horsey friends will take a look. He's to hoping they all get a 2nd chance!!!

                                        Love those 2006 Company Approval horses, particularly Company One. I so wish I had the money for another horse.

                                          Looks like a racing business which is closing shop. Wish I was nearby...

                                          This Saturday - HUGE dispersal 65 TBs,some mares in foal -WI/IL



                                          I was just forwarded this by a friend. Apparently there are many mares in foal. The link will take you to all of the information. It is this Saturday, December 6th in MT. Vernon WI. This is close to Madison WI.

                                          I don't know anything more than what I have read, sorry.
