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!

  • 11/20 Camelot Rescue Horse -- pics, pedigree, and soap opera history!

    Here are a few pictures of the grey mare, #937, that I was able to bail out from Camelot on Friday....hours before she was to ship to slaughter.

    She is now living safely with a lovely woman named Tammy in PA. Hopefully Tammy will check in here and give us some updates!

    Thanks to Tammy, who can care for her and give her a home, and Michelle, who volunteered to trailer her, now she can have a second chance at life!














    You can also see to her left in the trailer the standardbred that was taken in by the standardbred rescue in Northern NJ. To the right is the leopard appy who was starting his journey up to safety at his new home in MA.

      Due to some detective work by some of the ladies involved in the rescue, we were able to find out that 937's name is "Beautiful Bride"! She was born Feb. 20, 1995 in NJ.

      Click here for her 5-generation pedigree:

      It's also been discovered that she was bred by the same breeder who bred Smarty Jones! Tragically, the breeder and his wife were then murdered by the wife's son! How horrible! The horses were all sold off, except for Smarty Jones!

        What a horrible story for her breeders.

        With some good food and a nice, long bath, she is going to be a really good looking girl. I am a sucker for grays, and she has such a pretty, feminine head.

          Well, iloverocky, she is currently in quarantine, just being fostered and is available for adoption if you really like her!

            Wow- what an interesting background! Her pedigree shows she won at least one race- if you get a listing of her starts/wins you can call that track and see if the photographer has the win shot. Great thing to add to her "life book"! Can't wait to see her trimmed up and with some elbow grease! She has a beautiful look to her- very dignified. I can see why she caught your eye and couldn't be left to such a sad fate. Many thanks for working so hard for all those horses.

              Ha, I wish I needed another horse, but I am already supporting a gray thoroughbred (albeit an aged, retired one), two fat middle aged ladies, and the pudgy little paint gelding who has to "work" to support the lot of them.

              I do hope this girl finds a cushy 'forever' home soon. Thank you for saving her from a very bad fate, and thanks to her foster mom for giving her a temporary place to land.

                I had been trying to narrow down the search for the original Someday Farm which is just a couple miles from my farm. Does anyone know the name of it now? I think I do, I was told by someone in the racinig industry who lives near where it was.

                  I think you meant Saddlebred? ('You can also see to her left in the trailer the standardbred that was taken in by the standardbred rescue in Northern NJ. To the right is the leopard appy who was starting his journey up to safety at his new home in MA.'). He and all of us Saddlebred fans are so glad he got a new lease on life!

                    Oh wow I never knew that. This is the old TB mare I was worried about. The old TB mares are the smartest and best horses ever! Of course she's not as old as I thought she was, so if she is sound, she should be a good horse to hack around on.

                      Her eyes look so soulful.... I just bet she is going to have some serious "WOW" power in a couple months.

                        I am so glad I found this! I adopted this horse in March of 2010. I call her Sadie. She's such a sweetheart and I couldn't be more happy to have her as my first horse. She truly does everything you could ever ask a horse to do. I never had real riding experience before I got Sadie, and by the summer of 2010 we were in our 4-H Drillteam riding western pleasure! What a challenge it was to slow her down! But anyways, I as well as everyone else who knows Sadie is so happy she's with us. Talk about a girl's best friend. That's my Sadiebug. I have plenty of pictures of her too, both of when I first got her and ever since then. I'll try my best to figure out how to post pictures here so you all can see how wonderful she is now! Thank you so much for rescuing my girl. I'm so blessed to have her.

                              This is so awesome!!! What great news!! I am so thrilled to hear that she found such a great home!

                              I actually had one of her track racing pictures dug up, reprinted, and sent to me. I have to see if I can find it and send you a copy!!

                              Please tell me more about her. I bought her knowing nothing about her. That was 4 months before my wedding, and then I found out her name was "Beautiful Bride"! What a coincidence!

                                    I am so sorry this took me so long to get pictures of Sadie together!! Finally, here are some of the pictures I have of her from the time I rescued her in March of 2010 until now.

                                    I am sorry they are a little unorganized and not in chronological order. I hope you all enjoy them as much as I do!!

                                    Sadie is such a wonderful girl! I just want to thank you again for rescuing her. Without your efforts, I would never have such a wonderful girl as I do now!

                                    @Kelly in NJ-- Were you able to find the racing photo of "Beautiful Bride"? I would absolutely love to have a copy of it!!
