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!

    Need? Need a horse? What an interesting concept.

    I was at the auction horror at New Holland...there was a 12.2 hand sweet donkey molly..just turned 2 1/2, and she'd already had a baby...I so wanted to take her home...the barn owner wouldn't give a break on her board, so there she stayed...I so wish I was able to get the little girl. I would have paid $100/month to keep her, $250 a month for field board was just too dear.

      I've posted his pedigree on allbreed


      I'm going to call my husband and tell him I'm going to bid on him. I've got an 18 year old arabian mare who I plan to rein again this year. 18 is not old, especially for an arabian with his pedigree. Love Abu Farwa. Tons of good horses in his pedigree.

      I registered, now waiting for a password?

      I'm not going to bid high, would just like him to be out of kill buyer range. I hope someone who has a clue about horses buys him.


      • #23
        Argh. I notice he's on fugly today - or I guess it was yesterday? If somebody winds up with him, please let the rest of us know. I bet that fellow's got a lot of miles left in him.

          Thank you guys for buying him. My bid never went through. (I'm sure Charlotte is glad ). I knew this guy in his prime and would love for him to find a home. Am trying to contact the previous owners, as I knew them years ago, too.

          Will chip in for shipping.

            "Sure wish they listed how tall he was."

            Trak, there is an info number--maybe someone there can tell you? <wink wink>

            What a lovely boy. Here is hoping someone gets him.

              I have someone in VA who very much wants a horse just like this and has been looking. She is trying to call the contact number now to get more info. While blindingly brilliant, with only 6 hours to go we may need some help to make sure we get signed up and can bid and hopefully get info from his past owner.

              Its an excellent home and she is not far and can just go and get him herself. We just need all available info on the horse ASAP so when she bids and buys him she does not find out tomorrow he was retired for unsoundness or rearing or something.


              • #27
                I called to find out his height...no response yet.

                I think he's cute...course', I think they're all cute.

                  I was just alerted to this horse by a friend, I believe she has posted something about me ( Equinelaw) ..he is exactly what I am looking for: I have a youngster coming along but he's only 3 and I need a horse to tide me over ( in endurance) until he is ready. Is anyone on this thread seriously bidding? Does anyone have any more information about him??


                  • #29
                    We found the person who donated him. It was not his former owner. Waiting on why he was donated and for the Vet listed on the auction site to call back.


                    • #30
                      I bid on him, but only because I know him and want him to find a good home. I have a retired IR pony, a cushings horse, and a nutty gelding I ride, like Chardave said I don't need another mouth to feed. Just wanted him above kill buyer price.

                      http://www.doublejoy.com/erol/Indivi...rseHistory.asp here's a link to his history; I saw him at the Carolina 100 years ago. Looks like he had a respectable ride record, nothing really fast. I don't recall him having issues, but his rides are more NE than SE (where I am). I saw him a few times, and rode him around camp, I believe, but it's been years ago.

                      I hope you get him and am happy with him.

                        He is probably looking for a pasture puff companion type home. He was not 100% sound when donated. I am not sure if we will bid because we are looking for a riding horse. If someone else gets him and he turns out to be sound, then he has a home, but the pastures are full of puffs and not a riding horse in sight.

                          What was wrong with him when he was donated?


                          • #33
                            He's 15.2 - 16 hands

                            Just got a call from them...he's 15.2 - 16 hands.

                            He's healthy and there's nothing wrong with him.

                            They've also had a tough weekend with idiots whining and calling to bitch he's not being sold at an auction.

                            So, this is a big guy...c'mon guys...he needs a good home.

                              Ticket is awesome. He has wonderful manners. He is very personable.

                                I know what I was told, but who knows if its true? Or if he got better? Talking to the Vet now with the info given.

                                Fingers crossed. Although its an excellent home and he would never be dumped were he to go lame later, I do not want to be the one that sends my friend out to buy a lame horse to add to her collection of puffy pastures.

                                She would certainly likely buy him and go get him if he could be re-homed at a later date if he is not sound now.

                                  I worked with Ticket on the study that ended last month and trailered him back to Middleburg. He loads easily. Has great feet. No vices.
                                  He was an IR arab but if kept at the appropriate weight he is no longer IR.

                                    You know him?? Is he safe to ride? No spook no buck no rear no trying to kill you for fun? Not beginner safe,but at least not Krazy?

                                      Ahhhhhhhh. Does he need to be kept off grass? He can eat grass hay and is sound unless not managed properly?

                                        We never rode him in the study but I know he was ridden in other studies. He has been on a treadmill as well. I know there is a minimum bid to keep him from going to kill buyers. They have tried for 2 years to locate his former owner with no luck. There are a few other of the arabs that are up for adoption as their former owners did wave rights.

                                          He has been on pasture with out issue. They do have another up for adoption that must be dry lotted but as far as I know Ticket has no history of founder as that was important for the last study.
