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!

          Considering that I've visited that registry's site about 5 times in the past year, and have seen 5 different breeding 'goals' and 'standards', not to mention 5 different sets of 'approved' stallions, I'm not surprised CG is a bit confused when it comes to your registry. Frankly, so am I :P

            Seraph, obviously not "everyone" thinks I am nasty.

            Delyth and Hitch, thank you for seeing the situation clearly. Some people will always have delusions of grandeur.

            I do kind of like zebras. I wonder what happened to that one Judy Richter had a few years ago....

              Kerby !

              You are TOO TOO TOO funny ! &lt;giggle&gt;

              I'll bet you have as much snow as we do too - I am going for a tromp in the powdery fields this afternoon if it gets near -10C !

              I always find it interesting (read - humorous!) that these experts in "European Warmblood Breeding" write a lot but never seem to say much ... even if you ONLY consider the overwhelming success (backed up by show records over more than a few generations now) of these (originally) European-bred beasties that can speak for themselves !

                  No, the zebra was only my example.

                  Seraph thinks that no matter what the breed is, as long as there is some European WB or TB in it, if you claim you are breeding for the Olympic disciplines, you can call your offspring warmbloods.

                  So I assumed according to her argument that if I established a breeding program of zebras, infused with TB, I could call the foals warmbloods, so long as I assure my customers that I am breeding with the Olympics as an eventual goal.

                          Yup, my new goal is to breed zorses for the highest levels of dressage, combined training, and jumpers and to be in the Olympics.

                          All zorses will be left au naturel, not even halter broken, until they are at least 4 years old, because they are of such incredible old bloodlines that they need to be preserved.

                          Hitch, I will of course call my zorses warmbloods. Do you think, with the stripes, that I could register them with the color breed people, too? Like SHOC and IROC?

                              I didn't, but I share what I know

                              Among our rescues are zebra hybrids. These are a cross between a male zebra and a female horse, pony or donkey. This is the usual way to breed these hybrids, though occassionally a female zebra can be used. These striped animals are difficult to handle and are not just a horse with a striped coat. They are extremely athletic and can turn out from under a rider like no horse ever could. They are even more opinionated than a mule, and, add that to the athleticism of a wild zebra, you have an animal that is not for any but the most experienced rider or handler. Though they are outstanding in appearance, we do not recommend them as pets or as riding animals. Our zorses are rarely available for adoption.

                                CG,

                                I would encourage you to form your own registry; including studbook, mare book, and performance book (as I think the KWPN does this well just copy theirs).

                                Now what can you call this registry ?

                                ZORSE does sound forceful, powerful and able to leap tall buildings whilst piaffing in a single - albeit well-basculed - bound!

                                    There is a Australian guy in France who has a zorse (Stormy the Zorse!) that does reining. I saw her ridden at the Salon du Cheval at Paris in 01 I guess? He even rode her bridleless. She does all the basic dressage movements too-shoulder in, half passes, leg yields. And she jumps little cavaletti and plays football Stormy does really well...but I think she is the exception to the rule when it comes to the zorse.

                                    BUT, I think she could definitely work in CG's olympic warmblood breeding program. You should look into that CG! Could be your next fancy european warmblood import!

                                    I *think* I am actually getting somewhere on these applications...but then again I may be lying to myself.

                                          "My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world." ~ Jack Layton
