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!

  • One Tuff Oop

    I am not sure if this should go under this forum or another but I currently own one of his 7 offsprings that he has had and I am in love with her temperament and I am wanting to get another one of his foals or at least meet them. In particular I am looking for Watch My Legs who is a full sister to my mare. His other foals are I Ama Oop, If Its Meant To Be, Jeffersontonbabe, Klink and Oop Oopy Do. If anyone has information about any of these horses I would love to know. Thanks!

    Jeffersonton Babe was sold off the track to a lady in Connecticut. Random, but I happened to recognize the name, we listed her on CANTER last fall.

    The other ones I don't recognize. I would expect there would be more offspring than that, though, or are those just the ones in the area?

    eta: here's an old thread here about him, and also looks like Klink was sold through CANTER PA:

    "smile a lot can let us ride happy,it is good thing"

      I galloped One Tuff Oop for quite a few yrs, and also one of his babies. Oop was not a very nice horse temperment wise, but his son was much better!

      Cant help you with any of his offspring though, maybe the farm where he stood can?


      • #4
        I can get you contact info for the last person that owned him. He had to be euthanized a few years ago. He had a tumor in his nasal passage that kept growing. FWIW he DID turn out to be a super nice, super quiet guy once he reached his final home in VA. They ADORED him, rode him around the farm and their son used to feed him peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
        I remember cooling him out at the track and having him bite, bite,bite non stop. He was pretty bad back then. Sounds like he really mellowed out with age.

        Found it....

        Her name is Beth Worton.

            Thanks! I know I emailed Beth Worton when I first got Karmega and she owned one of them but not sure which one and said they were going to do dressage!

              I am currently leasing Klink, one his babies. He is fabulous, and doing 3ft hunters in Quebec. Love him! Such a nice temperament

                OMG, I think your mare was a weaning buddy with my 2005 colt! She lived at my farm until it was time to go for training back at Horseshoe Hill. I'm wracking my brain on what she was called at the time. My husband Mike did some of their breeding work.

                I am SOO glad she is in a good home, I had told Stephanie that she could have a home with me after racing because I loved the filly, but that was about the time they quit breeding so we lost touch. Mike says he is a FB friend with her still so we could see if she knows about the whereabouts of the full sister.

                Do you have any pics?

                  Here's Klink's CANTER PA Success Stories listing


                  • Original Poster

                    Klink is gorgeous!! How tall is he? My girl is around 17.2 hands. When I first got her in 2009 she was 17 and after a couple months she went from a horse halter to a small draft halter! She is super quiet except during the winter she hates the cold and is crazy but every TB I have owned was like that in the winter and she was down in GA when I brought her too! Spring, summer and fall she is dead quiet packs my little sister who rides walk/trot around the ring hunt seat and western! She doesn't enjoy western but tolerates it. Last year I did the 3' adult hunters equitation and medals with her and this year I moved her up to the 3'3 A/O hunters and 3' medals. We only showed twice in the A/O hunters because we were tight on money but we are top 5 in year end for our local associations and 11th in USEF zones!

                    I cant get links for pictures and such since I'm on my phone but if you go to YouTube and search d2dfarm1 there are videos of her

                    I would love to find out where her sister is!

                      Ran across another well buried pic of Oop and I, just thought I'd share! Glad to hear that is babies are doing so well!

                        Klink is a hair shy of 16.3! He is a dream to ride, beyond quiet, well mannered and loves his job.
                        She is gorgeous and really athletic, must run in the family
