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'm officially crazy.... Update - We Rode!!!

    This guy is coming home from the kill pen with me tomorrow or Wednesday... A good friend will be teaming up with me on him. I don't know if we'll end up keeping him or putting training on and rehoming... There was just something about him that told me I need to pull him - had to go with my gut!

    So what do we think? Any guesses on breed? I see TB but not sold that he's 100% TB. He's not big, about 15hh. Gorgeous mover from what I'm told but not sure what their reference point for that is

    I don't know what he is, maybe Appendix QH? But I think he is quite lovely. And a lucky boy. I'd be really curious to see him under saddle. I really like the looks of him...but I'm nobody, lol. Good luck with him. I hope he surpasses all expectations!

      Cute guy! I'd say not TB, looks classic QH to me. I like his shoulder, so "nice movement" sure seems within reach.

          His smaller hip and larger front end make me think there's some Morgan in him along with QH. Built a lot like my mare who is Morgan/Arab X QH. Who knows though. When you mix enough stuff in, it's hard to say. He's a horse. We can be certain of that!

          His mane isn't long and ratty so methinks he's been with "people" at some point along the way.

          Good luck OP!
          A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

          Might be a reason, never an excuse...

                I don't see arabian or quarter horse, more like TB and if something mixed in there, well, don't know.

                I will second that, if someone had a horse looking like that and knows the breeding, as BR has and does, then that is as good a guess as any.

                How old did the Coggins say he is?
                If he is still maturing, he may change yet, but he looks to be older.

                OP will know more after she works with him and shows what traits he brings to his handling and training.

                Sometimes it helps to put a horse on FB or even Craiglist and someone, somewhere may know who he is and where he came from.

                  Good looking horse! Looks strong and smart.

                  I dunno..the feathering around fetlocks and a bit thick in throatlatch and head shape, could be mustang or part mustang . I have a part mustang part arab with some of same characteristics.

                  Whatever breed or cross he is, enjoy 1 Handsome guy.

                    We thought perhaps appendix. He looks quite a bit like my 31 y.o. appendix gelding, but more uphill. I'm a dressage rider now but a former eventer. He says eventer to me, maybe because my appendix was also a cross country machine. Whatever he is we are excited to find him a job and give him a more positive fate!

                      The feathering made me think older, since he doesn't seem to have draft in him.
                      Didn't think some feral horses do have feathering still from long ago draft crosses, as our own feral horse did.
                      He also was leggy, but he was more heavier set, showing more heavy breed characteristics than this one seems to.
                      Ours was a wonderful ranch and cow horse, way above average in talent, a solid 15 hands, must have had some real good breeding behind him at some time.

                      Interesting what he may work for, once tried and trained.

                      Did anyone happen to look for a tattoo?
                      Does he has a name yet?

                        I'm going with TB and something. TB x Morgan maybe? Or appendix. I definitely see TB in there, crossed with something a little heavier. I don't see Arab at all.

                        ETA: I didn't realize you don't know if he has a tattoo or not! In that case I'm going with full TB. I have a TB gelding that looks a whole lot like him confo wise. There are quite a few heavier boned TBs out there.

                          Haven't seen him in person yet but I'll look for a tattoo when I do, it'll be either tomorrow or Wednesday. His name from the people who list the feedlot horses is Jango but once we get to know him we'll probably give him something that fits. I have heard that he is sweet and loves scritches!

                              A pleasant disposition is a wonderful asset in any horse.
                              That alone will make you smile every time you think about him.

                                  He looks a lot like my Danzig bred TB mare. She was 15'1hh and wore a size 80 blanket and a 52" girth! If I didn't have her papers, I would have never guessed she was a TB. She was unraced so no tattoo. She was uphill like this guy, and had a similar head. I wonder if he has Danzig in his line, as she looked a lot like him.

                                    He looks possibly all TB to me too, hard to see other in there, but for those feathers.
                                    I have not seen those on a pure TB before, unless an older one.

                                      Looks nice. I agree he looks like he has been with people recently- mane and a decent (if a bit skinny) weight. I like his expression- seems pretty calm, but interested in something in front of him.

                                        I see QH. That neck comes from there. But then I've seen TB that are built the same. So, you have a horse to work with. That's what it all boils down to, so good luck with your horse.

                                        Wish we could all be equally as a crazy. But those days that we thought would never end, have ended.
                                        Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

                                        Remember the horse does all the work, we just sit there and look pretty.
