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!

  • Visiting from H/J land - Advertising a TB mare as a Broodmare to Racehorse Owners?

    Okay. I have one contact in Kentucky that I might be able to help me (he was Cigar's vet and is a longtime family friend). But other than that, how and where would you advertise a TB mare with wonderful bloodlines to Racehorse breeders?

    I got her as an OTTB to be my jumper, which she has told me in no uncertain terms, she does not want to be.

    She has awesome bloodlines (Secretariat is her great great grandfather among Nashrulla, Bold Ruler, Native Dancer, etc).

    She herself was a bleeder so did not make it on the track (don't know if that's hereditary), but she has awesome conformation and so would make a lovely broodmare.

    You can look up her bloodlines under Best May West - 2002 Bay Mare

    Any help would be HUGELY appreciated

    Gone West is nice. Secretariat, Nashua, Bold Ruler and Native Dancer aren't bad to have but they're a dime a dozen unless they're through a good RECENT horse. Even then I still wouldn't but one with too much Native Dancer myself.

    Honestly, there's nothing about her unless she's a STUNNER physically to make her especially desirable in this market. She bombed on the track (and unless we're talking buckets of blood even with Salix, practically everyone is a 'bleeder' these days so that's not likely it) and wasn't even competitive at Finger Lakes--and her charts just say 'outrun.' If she really is SUCH a bad bleeder Lasix/Salix doesn't help, she shouldn't be bred. The charts just suggest she's not a good racehorse. Her sire has some good offspring, despite not having been a spectacular perfomer, but her dam doesn't have much that I can find--I did find one reference to a yearling of hers selling for $9000 at F-T in 1998.

    There's a glut of mediocre horses on the market. Her pedigree's not awful but it's not rare or especially great, either. She wasn't a good racehorse and her dam doesn't seem to have produced much of note, either. I don't think she has much value.

      If she just doesn't want to be a jumper why not try her in another discipline?

        We are, she loves to foxhunt which is what I do mostly anymore anyway. But I think she would florish with an eventer rider which I don't have the guts for

        Thanks for the insight on her bloodlines. All I know is that Secretariat was awesome and I always hear about the others so I thought that made her "good."

        She is built wonderfully except for a weak hind end which we are working on building back up.

        I am her 3rd owner so I have no idea about the bleeding issue as far as how bad it was. I've not had any issues with her since I got her other than her being ring sour hence the not wanting to be a jumper.

          Yep, nothing that will be attractive (meaning bloodlines) to breeders, especially in this market.

            Hmm, sad to hear but good to know

            Guess I'll keep her over in the sporthorse market then. I think she would cross nicely w/ QH's which are what I'm used to anyway.

              I am really impressed with the assessment you made of this mare.. although the info is out there, how you put it together is excellent information.
              I just acquired a mare, thinking much the same as the OP..
              would you mind looking at Five Star Era?

              Like the OP's horse, she flunked racing, but has stunning conformation and temperment. No (known) bleeding issue.

              Thanks

                I've contacted the stallion's owner's via email and though I doubt I'll get a response, it'd be nice if I can at least get some more insight to my mare's past. I've had no luck with contacting her first owner who started her under saddle and jumping and can't find any pictures of her dam.

                Even if I never sell her, she's a sweetheart of a mare and will do anything for a starlight mint

                I'd love to get some foal pictures of her... but I think that's wishful thinking.

                      Rock N Frankie couldnt win in 17 starts, her dam hasnt produced any black type. No value to race breeders. A general rule of thumb is if the mare herself wasnt a quality runner, and if her dam didnt produce black type, or any other daughters that produced serious black type, she won't have any value to TB breeders. This mare would produce a foal that won't have any black type for 2 generations.

                          Good luck with her Bright Sky. Hope she tears up the H/J ring for you! Every horse has value, it just needs to be tapped into by its human.
