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.

  • Future Racehorses, my expectant mothers

    As I am starting foal watch very soon I just thought I'd let everyone know who my mares are in foal to. For some of the pedigree experts it might be fun. I am also very excited because 2 of my mares have their first progeny in training this year.

    Annia Faustina is expecting to Statue Of Liberty. She is a maiden

    Stonor Lady is expecting to Antonius Pius abd has and 07 AP colt

    Fraamtastic was not covered last year due to lateness in foaling. Her 07 foal killed herself by running into a gate which was a bummer.

    Stonor Lady has a 2yo by Catcher In The Rye currently in training.

    Fraamtastic has a 2yo by City On A Hill currently in training.

    Mares are going back to the following:

    Annia Faustina to Ad Valorem

    Stonor Lady to One Cool Cat

    Fraamtastic to Kheleyf

    I haven't been able to log into this thread due to database errors. I didn't want you to think no one cared about your upcoming foals so I switched browsers. I haven't heard of most of those names, but I wish you well nonetheless. Hopefully my foal watch is close to an end for the year.

      Your too kind. I just put these kind of things up in case people want to explore the pedigrees. It's not racing so I don't expect too much in the way of a response.
      I started out as a hotwalker, worked my way up to groom, and spent 3 years riding and breaking babies before learning to gallop. Rode a few races, but was crap, went back to galloping where I was fortunate to get on some amazing horses. Now, I'm a breeder however small, but I am most proud of breeding and raising future racehorses. I will do the best by them especially after racing. Mares have a chance to prove themselves and if not will be retired to live with us.
      As far as the stallions, well they raced over here primarily. Most are American bred though and I tend to use Coolmore and Darley for stallions. Annia is a granddaughter of Lady Wimborne and a 3/4 sister to Catumbella who is the dam of Honor In War. Stonor Lady is by French Deputy. SL's mom died afte having only 4 foals, 3 are winners and one is supposed to step up to listed company this year. And Fraamtastic is English bred by Fraam and she is a full sister to a graded stakes horse in Dayglow Dancer. Other than Fraamtastic I tend to go for American pedigrees as per my American self!
      Make sure you post pictures of your new addition when he/she arrives!

        Best of luck to both of you with your opcoming foals! We're breeding racehorses here, too. At least we'd like to think so.

        We have a Broken Vow filly so far, and unfortunately our second mare that was due lost her foal. We're expecting three more: a Lemon Drop Kid, a Grand Slam, and another Broken Vow.

            Hey Laurie, I've been following your saga on the Sport Horse Breeding Forum. I understand things are close. Now when is that foal of yours going to appear?

            And I hope there will be pictures when he/she does.

              Lord only knows! I am starting to think maybe I have just really overfed her!

                Hey everybody, I am a racing fan, but mostly an H/J person. My hubby's broodmare Katie's Girl (Sire: Distinctive Pro, Dam: Mile High Glory), and she is breed to Flame Thrower. Well, we will see what we get.

                  On foal watch here for an Ide mare in foal to Freefourinternet - this will be her second foal. She was due on teh 7th and is bagged up, but not waxed. Should be another day or two, but am watching her this evening.

                  Also expecting a Sarava foal out of our Flying Continental mare. Her granddam is the dam of Lost Code, so we are excited about the cross to Sarava. Sarava means "luck", so maybe we'll have a "Lucky Code". Dam's name is "Not A Nice Girl", so we're hoping she doesn't live up to the name when her first foal drops - she can be a tough mare to get along with lol! Should be a lovely black foal (both parents are black).

                  Best wishes to all expectant owners!

                    We've got two mares due - both bred to one of the farm stallions (Bar V Cu Chulainn).
                    Supposed to be due mid-March according to the records I inherited on them....

                    One older mare (Miss Stride)- twins in her past (not this year), also has had stillborn twice. She's bagged already and is starting to get loose in the hips/tail, foal looks like it's been dropping lower the past week.

                    The other is a madien mare (SA Girl)- foal very noticable drop this week, tail head is soft she's been soft and loose behind for a couple of weeks. But NO BAG - grrrr - nice Milk Vein is there according to the vet. Hoping she's going to bag right before she foals - her mother did that her first foal.

                    [The madien mare's dam was just put down this past week... she managed to break a leg in turnout (and no we have NO clue how she managed that unless she took a kick from the yearlings she was turned out with)]

                    Stalls are ready...mares are still on turn-out for another few weeks... just keeping close eyes on them both.

                      We have two due in April..

                      Gallapiatsprincess is in foal to Dayjur.. we plan to stay close to Shadwell's custom of Arabic names for their horses and the top choice for a filly is of course "Emira," (Princess!) She is a fat mare and you can only just discern that she's pregnant if you look at the filling behind her ribcage!

                      Mercedes Power is in foal to Sugar's Saint, possibly the least advertised stallion in the world. I'm not even sure what he looks like. I'm not even sure he exists. We'll see. The mare is GIGANTIC in her belly.. my husband worries that she will have twins.. I worry that she will have it TOMORROW. I seriously question the breeding date. No bag to speak of and no real loss of musculature but still...

                      For next year, Gallapiatsprincess is going to Bachelor Blues and Mercedes is going to Western Pride.

                        Can I Play?

                        I guess with the infinitesimal STB following on this board, no one will care but we're expecting an SJ's Caviar (PA) out of our mare this year, and she will be bred back to Conway Hall (NY). We are breeding our two maiden mares to Like A Prayer (KY) and Broadway Hall (PA).

                        This is the mare going to Like A Prayer. Isn't she just the cutest STB you've ever seen?:

                          Good luck everyone!

                          We have a mare due on the 9th of March... so the watch begins... she is in foal to Lionhearted...(second foal by this stallion) and we LOVE her yearing filly! Hope we get another just as nice!

                            Big_Tag, I LOVE Standardbreds.. I am a Keller after all, you know, so it is in the blood I used to have a lovely one named Cinderella. Such amazing shoulders on those horses. Yours is lovely!

                                    Thanks Laurierace - not as correct or big as your baby, but she should straighten up and her mom throws peanuts (with speed). Either way, she's precious with that little off-center chili pepper on her forehead - she's a firecracker!

                                        Be careful what you wish for! Allie is getting a little too big for her britches. She doesn't seem to think that there are any rules and that she can do as she pleases. Including knocking the farm owner over when he tried to hold her so we could put the halter on. Including kicking at you with both feet if she felt like it. She kicked at Olivia so I went out of the stall to get a whip with a popper on the end to make a loud sound. I came in the stall and she fired at me and came extremely close to kicking me in the chest, she actually hit my coat. So we got an education in not kicking. I took the whip and rubbed her gently on her legs and hindquarters, when she accepted it, she got an nice pat, when she kicked, she got a sharp swat. The nice thing is I was far enough away that she wasn't completely sure where it was coming from, all she knew is when she kicked her legs out, she got swatted. Jess is coming to the end of her patience as well, she has started biting her when she kicks at her while nursing. What a little hellion!
