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!

        All of these are at stud. Tiago is at Adena Springs (New York division). Ten Most Wanted is in California. Essence is Dubai is/was somewhere in South America (I think Venezuela?). War Emblem is in Japan. Ever since he entered stud, he has had a problem with not wanting to breed very many mares. I found an article from this past summer that said he only covered 5 of about 300 mares that were presented to him in the 2010 breeding season.

                Sarava is standing stud in FL. I had a beautiful geld by him that is starting his second career as a foxhunter.

                  Essence of Dubai is no longer in FL - he was standing at Hartley & Derenzo until 2009 - now I cannot find him in the TB Times or The Stallion Register, so maybe he was sold overseas.

                  I use the links below to check on them

                  http://www.thoroughbredtimes.com/sta...ce-search.aspx
                  http://www.bloodhorse.com/stallion-register/index.asp

                  We had a Sarava filly, but lost her as a 2 year old - very sad.

                  Another blast from Belmont's past is Jazil - my SIL wants to breed to him, but after the Sarava experience I am leery. People do not seem to respect Blemont winners as much.... Of course the 2 horses are night and day.

                    Witherbee, I LOVE Jazil! Went to see him at Shadwell and he's so good tempered. Here's a picture from his last race at Keeneland. I think I've posted this b4, but oh welllllllll.

                    http://s267.photobucket.com/albums/i...=JazilFans.jpg

                    Yeah, that's me with the beer (and my SO next to me). I wasn't as drunk as I look

                    I have some pictures of him we took at Shadwell, but don't know what I've done with them.

                      Like A Hero: 2002 Belmont

                      ...is now giving lessons and trail rides at a stable in Jupiter, FL. And I do mean "giving." New Vocations in Ohio re-trained him from the track and did a superb job. I took my first lesson in decades on him, three years ago. At 17 hands and ridden by a rusty novice, he was as smooth a mover and responder as could be imagined.

                        Finally a Belmont winner who has return with a victory:

                        May 15, 2011 "Drosselmeyer outbattles stablemate to earn first win since 2010 Belmont Stakes"

                        Drosselmeyer became the first Belmont Stakes winner in more than a decade to win a race in his 4-year-old season, gutting out a neck victory over stablemate Birdrun in Sunday’s $60,000 One Count Stakes at Belmont Park.
                        In case the news flash has been missed - winning the Belmont Stakes has seemingly been a career kiss of death. The last Belmont Stakes winner to win a race in his 4-year-old season was Lemon Drop Kid, who won the 1999 Belmont and came back to win four graded stakes as a 4-year-old in 2000.

                            He was retired after his 3yo season, but Summer Bird went on to win the '09 Travers (like papa Birdstone did in '04) and the JCGC.

                              I visited Shadwell a couple of years ago and saw Jazil, Invasor, and Dayjur. All of them seemed to have nice dispositions. Dayjur was completely gorgeous and didn't look his age at all. Shadwell obviously takes great care of their horses.
