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!

  • Analysis of a Pedigree Please

    I just got a new baby, and I am very excited I have searched his tatoo number and have gotten his registered name and pedigree. Wondered if anyone would care to give an opinion on his bloodlines? I plan to do the H/J stuff with him eventually......right now we are just learning how to trot properly

    I also wanted to try and contact his former owner/breeder to let them know where he is, and how he is doing. I found his breeder (in Charlestown, WV) and sent them an email, but got no response. He never raced, so I can't get any info that way. I would love to see some pictures of him, maybe his registration photo, but not sure how to go about that either. He came without papers, and no info at all except the name of his sire. Any help or suggestions would be great! I know you guys are always full of helpful suggestions

    Anyway....here is the link to his pedigree. No, he is not a grey, and yes I will be giving him a new show name! Suggestions welcome for that as well


    and some pics.....




    Where am I, and what am I doing in this handbasket???

    i'd call up the JC about past info, as well as try to get the papers from his previous owner so you can get a JC transfer of ownership.

    pedigree-wise, neither his sire or his dam were super classy. small track horses, really. further back there are some gems, including War Admiral in the 5th, and we all know he was nothing to laugh at.

      Well, I've been running my keyboard saying "the horse in front of you is more important than the names on any paper ", but as a rabid fan of A Fine Romance, Gay Missle jumps right out for me. The dam's sire is brother to Lassie Dear.

      Pange, in the dam's bottom line, is the granddam of Landaluce.

      So, you can brag about you guy's relations while you are standing at the ingate.

      I think I'm right about all this? I get this stuff mixed up if I can't lay it out in front of me at the same time.

        If you WANT to, you can transfer ownership on the JC webpage for free. (They don't really care who owns the horse if he can't be bred and won't be raced, but you can.)

        I've never heard of them giving out registration photos. I suppose you could always ask.

        Since he didn't race and presumably has never been bred, there really isn't much anyone can tell you, probably, unless you can find out who had him tattooed and why they decided not to start him.

        In addition to names mentioned, Ribot appears. Good sport-horse bloodline.

        For WV peeps on the forum, the breeder listed on equineline is Mrs. Calvin E. Rofe, if anyone knows who that is and could help the OP.

            Is that the good "unique" or the bad "unique"?

              My BO has a mare by Meford who she loves and is doing quite well with in eventing. She is very similar in build to your guy. She herself quite looks like Medford. Have fun with your new horse!

                Yes, Pange is a classic female, and for your boy, it is the tail female line, so very important.


                And his dam also has Sir Gaylord - a classic jumper sire. Some people also like Buckpasser.
