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!

  • Brands/Help- Anyone Recognize?

    Horse is a HUGE grey (well over 17hds.)

    Appears to be some kind of warmblood cross? He's absolutely stunning in real life. Super calm and quiet. I'm not familiar with drafts/draft crosses and he has a brand on his left hind quarter. It a circle, maybe 3-4 inches in diameter with what looks like a solid triangle inside the circle. Anyone familiar- or recognize this brand? Any help greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Sorry, no help with the brand. But I was wondering who the woman in the burka was (and where that horse originated) until I reread your post.

    Okay I googled, look at http://www.dressageamerica.com/brands_new.htm
    Maybe a Hessen ?

        unusual brand.

        I would consider maybe a NZ or Aus TB?
        Could be from a PMU ranch?

        Shaved and then a zoomed pic might help.

          Don't recognize the brand either...but sure looks like a warmblood - certainly not like any draftX I've seen

            Do you know where he comes from? It could be a private ranch brand, although it is an unusual one and he's an unusual horse to be wearing it. It's hard to make out details though. If you do know what state he's from you could see if it's a registered brand.

            Otherwise, I don't know. I haven't seen anything like it.

              I have no idea about the brand, but he looks EXACTLY like the big ISH/TB that I ride. They could be twins with the exception of the markings under the grey.

                Hahaa... Kinda reminded me of that Darth Vader (sp?) character after it was done. Actually got a call to see if we could find this horse a home as he didn't want to send to kill- said he was a super nice horse (and he is). He's already been run down to Pa. Hopefully- a home will be in his near future, after quarantine.

                  No tattoos on this horse anywhere, just the brand on his left rump. I've been able to search some of the Canadian brands but haven't turned up a match.

                    it somewhat looks familiar, but then again not at all. Def. not one of the major WB brands. I have not seen too many round brands, Wagon wheel and Edelweiss excluded, but nothing like that.

                    I think in the Breed forum you can find a thread on brands with a link to pictures.

                    Not knowing the scale (I am bad at not reading the whole thing) his butt looked Araby to me.

                      Have no idea on the origination. He was sold through a sale somewhere (possibly in NY). Was told he belonged to some girl that took really good care of him (and it shows/when I touched his coat it was silky soft), but that she lost her job and couldn't afford to feed/keep him. He's got aluminum shoes up front. Barefoot behind. Nothing wrong with the horse. Super good set of feet all around. Did some surfin' on the net and he resembles some Belgian WB's and ISH/TB crosses in comparison to some of pictures. Remarkably, he's not 'drafty' like a workhorse (for me, when I think of draft I envision 'workhorse') He's HUGE in stature and very impressive.

                        Yes, based on some pictures I've seen he does resemble ISH/TB's.

                          TBs here usually get their tat when they get cleared through the gate, could this be a TB from NZ, Aus, or other that is not tattoo'd because of a technicality like that?

                            I was poking around the web and found this link. While I know he looks WB-y or TB-esque, he could be an Appendix and possibly ranch bred, maybe even racing QH. I would look to horse brands out west and you might find it.

                            Please let us know, I'm curious.

                              Also Western Horseman Magazine might be able to help. I would send them a pict of the brand and see if their editorial staff might have info on it.

                              Again, good luck and let us know.

                                my thought too, many of those QHs have a lot of TB blood.
                                It's also what made me think potentially 'PMU'.

                                      I have a Hessen. Can you post a wet pic of the brand?
                                      If the horse was branded Hessen in Germany, unless they have changed recently, he won't have an H, he'll have a chevron-like brand, not really a chevron, but an enclosed brand but not a circle, and inside with a P, if he was branded Premium, and 2 digits of his life # underneath the P.
                                      And I have a grey Hessen, so the brand has to be wet to see it. Wet it down please. And they are big and funny looking guys.
