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!

  • Help picking out a name?

    I just bought a new little Welsh pony and am getting the papers finished to be sent in. The owner didn't finish them and told me I was free to put whatever I wanted for the name (assuming that since the papers aren't sent in yet that that's not a big deal). Her name is "In the Buff" and I just... really don't like it. I guess I'm just so anti-funny names when you say them i.e. over the loud speaker- "Danielle, riding in the buff" So since I CAN change it I want to. I wouldn't go to the hassle if she were already registered, but I figured what the heck. She's SUCH a feminine acting little filly, definitely a little sweetheart. She stood out in the field for an hour not flinching a muscle (well, except for to pick my grooming tote up and dump it upside down spilling everything out) while I was brushing her so she just loves to be fussed with. Any takers? Pics and pedigree below

    Calling her In the Buff is like calling a black cat Midnight. It lacks imagination, plus, as you said, there are other implications.

    Unfortunately, it's the Friday before spring break and my brain is fried.

    She is ADORABLE. "Bombshell" maybe?

      Lol, yes, it is almost spring break. I'm sorry to hurt your brain. My husband's convinced that an announcer will subconsciously say "butt" instead of "buff". Yes... I married him.

          Hey, you calling my pony a bimbo? She can be dignified even if she has blonde hair and blue eyes!

              Errrr.. no.. not exactly that...

              You could just hang around her for a few days and see what comes to mind and then what sticks.. then again I now have a four year old 16.1 h horse named DINKY because I did that...

              I hate naming horses.

                Lol at Dinky. Her "nickname" is Buffy and I despise it (sorry if you're reading previous owner! ) I actually had a sweet little dog named Lily a long time ago and she really reminded me of her for some reason so I started calling her Lily today. It fit. Not that her barn name has to do with her registered name that is... I'm awful about naming all of my animals people names though.

                  Well, if her nickname is "Buffy," then go whole hog - how about "Vampire Slayer"? LOL Sorry - being silly, but it would turn heads...

                          OK, first, what a cool pedigree! I've only really looked at quarterhorse, arab, and TB names but I'm LOVING all the names on this one!

                          Second, what a BEAUTIFUL little girl!!

                          I'm in the naming process too, going to post a thread next. So I'll take a stab!

                          Brainstorming process:
                          Sire has "Promise" in his name - promise means potential, hope also an oath, pledge

                          Dam's line has a history of female names with an adjective in front of them
                          Lily = Lillian OR the flower - with many lily names, such as glory, butterfly, mariposa...

                          Glory leads to majestic, splendor, nobility (ties in with Princess) ...

                          Historical "Princess Isabella"s include one in France, who had a daughter Eleanor (which could tie in the Lily) ... on in Parma who had two daughters Maria Christine and Maria Theresa ...

                          That leads me to searching Eleanor Roosevelt quotes LOL ...

                          Then there's Huelegan which sounds like Hooligan which leads me to "troublemaker" and "ruffian" ... or the opposite, which is sophisticate or leads to thinks like justice, good ...

                          But looking at her, she's so sweet and feminine, I lean towards keeping the "Princess" thing only something like "Principessa" ... but that's ITALIAN lol, not Welsh ...

                          Which leads me to Welsh names, like "Essylt" which means "that is fair" or "Gwenllian" which means "white flaxen" or "Gwyneth" which means "white, fair" or "Lilwen" which is "white Lily" or "Lilybet" which is "God's Promise"

                          I really like "Gwenllian" (Gwen -Hlee- An) ... and "Gwenllian Princess of Wales" is teh daughter of Eleanor LOL ... also are symbols of independence and patriotism...

                          See why I have trouble coming up with names? Anyone scared of how I think yet?


                          I don't know enough about Welsh Cob naming customs, what names in her pedigree are good, etc., but this is how I get started!
                          If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.

                            LOL..

                            I was looking at some welsh stuff on wiki (loff the 'country')

                            came up with Gwynedd (a county over yonder, ddis pronounced as th, the y can be said several ways as I recall).

                            Princess Eilonwy, a character out of Lloyd Alexander's The Chronicles of Prydain


                            then I thought of Amaterasu, japanese, easier to pronounce than Welsh
                            Goddess of the sun.

                                  No good at name suggestions, but congrats! She's adorable!

                                  I have a welsh mare who shares some of her pedigree (her sire is a Farnley Kernel/Dandardel Rachel offspring) and I *loff* her.

                                      AHHHH. No way. Most of the reason I hate "Buffy" is because my little sister was OBSESSED with it and all I heard was "buffy this, buffy that, willow and xander, blah blah blah" lol

                                        Thanks so much everyone for all the wonderful suggestions!! MUCH more creative that I. I love a lot of the Welsh words especially Gwenllian. I should not be allowed to own a Welsh pony because it never crossed my mind to look up Welsh words. Bad mom. I had also thought of Mariposa as well- subtle play on barn name vs. reg. name. Great ideas, I'll look more tonight.
