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!

  • Finger Lakes Finest June 6th - new lovelies!

    A bright and sunny day today at Finger Lakes Race Track. Not good for my cheapish camera that did NOT like the bright sun, even though we tried to position the horses so that there wouldn't be shadows.

    Take a peek at the mascots page and see little Arthur who has come home to heal the hearts of his people who are mourning the loss of their Oscar Meyer piggie.

    We need a photo for this mare but she is off the farm and has been listed for about a month. Her trainer really needs a new home for her...

    "removed link because mare is gone".

    This filly is URGENT and needs a new home now. She has a fresh knee injury/soreness and needs rest.

    "removed link because trainer states the filly has been placed".

    This chestnut gelding was an absolute darling! A real character.

    Check out the breeding on Dawn Charger!! Some stuff up closer then what you normally see - and she had 98 starts. Good thing she's in NY and not right around the corner from me!!

    That dark bay filly looks like a lovely girl also. Once filled out she's going to be a knockout!

    The gelding looks lovely - beautifully cared for.

    Ok, so who's stepping up to give these Lovelies a new home?!

      That dark bay filly who needs a home ASAP looks a lot like my FL boy. If she's anything like him, someone needs to snap her up fast!! Hopefully she just needs a bit of tincture of time.
      Y'all ain't right!

        You know one really can't have a horse alone and have it be happy. I think I really need to find a place to put Big Chief Avie and Chief Dancer. (I obviously have a thing for Chief Seattle sons!)

        I need a bigger backyard.

          The gelding has such a kind face, his eye looked so soft. You can tell he is well loved!

          Hope they all find nice homes....

            The filly with the knee is gorgeous. I hope someone grabs her. Look at that cat-like body, and a beautiful neck. All the right pieces.

              I had a dream last night about OTTB mares..... think it's a sign? Too bad I'm so far away, that bay filly would be in my back pasture right now! Hope someone grabs her up!


              • #8
                It's a sign, and I'm sure there is someone around COTH with a rig headed your general direction....

                (I am an enabler. It's my role in life. No place to put one myself, so I will enable others...)

                  Hahahaha, well in that case- anyone have an empty spot in a trailer heading towards Western MA? (Sad thing? I'm actually not kidding)

                    Ok! Whos stepping up?! (If I wasn't moving my herd to Maine in 2 weeks, I'd offer, but I'm simply not headed that way anytime soon... )


                    • #11
                      If someone's got a place to put a guy or two in need of time off and a trailer headed Eventaholic's way I'll help with the gas if you'll pick one up for me! I just need somewhere to stash them. My landlord will not go for it in the backyard. (Dammit.)

                        Outskip is gorgeous. I'd take her in a heartbeat if I could, and I don't even like mares.

                        Do not buy a Volkswagen. I did and I regret it.
                        VW sucks.

                          Outskip seemed like a really "centered" mare. She was entered to race yesterday but wasn't wasting her energy being goofy for our "interview". She stood calmly and serenely absorbing our admiration!

                          Eventaholic, lots of times there have been massive trailer linkages for people taking on Finger Lakes horses. Western MA isn't very far from us - only about six hours?


                          • #14
                            A nice group of horses this week. I like Outskip, she looks like my Promise Mare. If her temperment is like Promise's also, she could be your horse of a lifetime.

                              I'll say (type) this again: If you really think you'd like one of these horses but are worried about the shipping costs - make some calls!!
                              The FL gals are great to work with and they have plenty of shipping contacts. Some great ones are listed on the site. The shippers are very reasonable and want to help I can honestly say this because I had two shipped to GA for ridiculously small amounts of $. You'll never know unless you call....
                              Y'all ain't right!

                                Can the two girls live outdoors in my front pasture with just a shed? It is NC and it's hot and buggy in the summer.

                                  I meant the two urgent ones. Volcanic Action and the older girl -- Dawn Charger -- for whom there are no photos.

                                    My two are living in hot as he!! south GA. They're out 24/7. Reggie has a run in and Eddie comes into a stall to eat - that's it. Mine made the switch to outdoor life in the winter, but I'd imagine the two girls would be perfectly fine.

                                      I also think the girls would be fine with shelter and some nice fly spray! Wouldn't it be lovely to have both girls?
