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!

  • Moneighs on eBay!

    Copypasting from ReRun's press release:

    Rerun, Inc. announces the dates for the annual holiday auction of Moneighs® (original, abstract, paintings created by some of North America’s best Thoroughbreds) will be held on ebay® from Nov. 27 to Dec. 4, 2011.

    This auction features “Competition at its best,” and “patterns the game of six degrees of separation.” “All the artists are intertwined, or have raced against each other.” said Moneigh® project director, Mary Simons. One example of competition is between four artists who ran against each other in the 2007 Triple Crown races.
    In the 2007 KY Derby, Street Sense finished first, Hard Spun, 2nd, Curlin 3rd, and Cowtown Cat finished last. However, is Cowtown Cat the most talented artist of that group?
    Other featured artists who are connected to each other through Graded stakes races or pedigree are:
    Albert The Great, Lido Palace, Artie Schiller, Kitten’s Joy, Bernardini, Greeley’s Legacy, Sun King, Colonel John, Einstein, Magna Graduate, Tale Of Ekati, Big Brown, Evening Attire, Medaglia D’Oro, Repent, Monarchos, Congaree, and Western Pride.

    Once again, the auction will be held on ebay® Nov. 27 – Dec. 4, however, paintings are available year round on the www.rerun.org website. Anyone can view the paintings and decide who is the best artist, competing off the race track.

    To view Moneigh® paintings, go to www.ebay.com and type the search word “moneigh”; go to www.rerun.org and click on the ebay® icon on the left side of the website; or click on the word Moneighs on the bottom of the Rerun website..

    I am the proud owner of an earlier Cowtown Cat Moneigh, and I love it. He's a real 'artiste'

      I think Congaree did a nice job utilizing textures and layering, while there is a certain Chinese brush-painting/koi pond effect with Albert the Great.

      (However I refuse to believe Sun King didn't have a LOT of help with that one....)

          Time for the annual spring auction!

          First time I've seen a painting by Storm Cat! There are also paintings by In Lingerie, Go for Gin, Smarty Jones (his painting looks like the equine version of Guernica), Funny Cide, Colonel John, Monarchos, Shackleford, Lemon Drop Kid, and a host of others!

              Auction ends today, 6pm EDT. Shackleford's painting is now over $1,000, and Storm Cat's will get there, too. The bidding is instructive and entertaining, in its own right.

                I knew I should have bid on the one by Madcap Escapade! It was the only one I really wanted and whomever got it has no idea of just how lucky they are...

                  It was a bargain ($385), considering some of the other winning bids - like Smarty Jones, Shackleford, and Storm Cat, all of whose paintings surpassed $1,000. Cigar's painting got close.

                    Moneigh by Animal Kingdom, ends tonight!

                    ReRun is again auctioning Moneighs on eBay, featuring paintings by past and hopeful Breeders Cup winners and including one by the mighty Animal Kingdom. Bids look very low by usual standards, and money goes to a good cause.

                    Auction ends tonight. Search "moneigh" in eBay.

                          ReRun just listed another batch of Moneighs on eBay for their big holiday sale. Storm Cat's second painting and his halter are among the items listed . . . but it looks like Mandy Pope might be bidding. LOL! Here's the link.

                            What is up with Zippy Chippy? I admit I haven't seen Moneigh's before this batch, but his is SO different!

                              According to the description:
                              "His personality carried over to his art but the artist’s assistants got several muzzle strokes from him before going to the tail stroke-thus the “Z”. "

                                Bids are unusually low (except for Storm Cat's painting). Impressive art work by impressive horses - and some important halters, too! You can get a unique gift and help ReRun help OTTBs.

                                (I'm just an enthusiast and have no connection with ReRun, otherwise.)

                                  Paintings and halters sell within the hour. Last chance to ogle and/or bid.

                                    WAIT!!! I wanted to bid, but the sale must have closed already?

                                    Who closes a sale in the middle of the day?

                                    Sunday sales always close at midnight ET and 9pm pacific time.

                                    Damn! "Moneigh" shows 0 items and the Re-Run site has nothing liusted. So I guess everything sold all at once?
