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!

        I guess Bob & Zayat aren't tweeting any asinine coy responses to Payner this time, as they did before. Flashback to stupidity, pre Haskell:

        The current condition of Paynter, and his whereabouts, have been difficult to ascertain in recent days, because his connections have refused to disclose detailed information.

        On Tuesday, in response to inquiries regarding Paynter to both Justin Zayat and owner Ahmed Zayat, Justin Zayat, who works closely with his father, Ahmed, said on Twitter that Paynter “is not dying or retiring.” Justin Zayat also said Paynter “is healthy and sound” and added that the colt would be “training at Belmont this weekend,” but would not divulge his current whereabouts.

        Bob Baffert, who trains Paynter, on Tuesday referred all inquiries to the Zayats, but joked that Paynter was “at a spa in New Jersey, getting his nails done.”

        Tuesday evening, Justin Zayat posted a picture of his father riding a horse on a merry-go-round at Disneyland with the caption, “I found paynter!!!!!!!”
        Bodemeister, Pioneer of the Nile, Paynter, Eskendereya, Zensational, Maimonides .... eh did any of them finish their 3-yr old season healthy and capable of having a 4-yr old career? Nada.

        One should loudly ask why the aforementioned horses get retired to stud ... with the expectation they will what, produce more solid runners? Please.

          update on Blood Horse says he's improved some. Am I off base thinking this incident is more worrisome given that it happened not too long ago?

          Edited to add: In addition to the list above, I'll Have Another, Union Rags, Hansen.......

            Agreed.

            Look at how much each one of these horses traveled and shipped so close to races and take a glance at their work patterns... And wonder why they had the problems they did...

              I read somewhere (may have been DRF) that the vets are saying it's a good thing they didn't wait to bring him to the clinic, that he was pretty seriously sick.

              I'm thinking that maybe he wasn't over it the first time, or maybe his immune system was compromised because he was ill last month.

              Anyway, I'm glad he's feeling better, he is a gutsy race horse.

                To clarify Roly,

                They were happy he got sick when he did because the next day he was scheduled to be on a plane from NY to LA. Not a short trip for a very sick horse.

                If he hadn't gotten worse the trip may have sapped his strength to a very bad level.

                  Although he improved over the weekend, he has not done as well this evening.

                  Quotes from Zayat's Twitter account, per The Paulick Report...
                  http://www.paulickreport.com/news/bl...zayat-stables/

                  "Zayat Stables' grade 1-winner Paynter, who has been battling colitis, suffered another setback on Monday.

                  Ahmed Zayat wrote in a series of detailed Twitter comments on Monday evening, that the talented colt had again taken a bit of a turn for the worse, after having shown improvement over the weekend. Zayat wrote:

                  "Paynter update: Paynter continues to fight bravely his colitis. Today has been a tough day he is giving us mixed signals while his appetite has improved and his temperature is normal. His blood work has been good.

                  Today we had to deal with new issues that arised at the first time. He has developed an infection where the catheter is placed and his angel Laura was having a hard time finding an unswollen vein to insert it. It is important because this is where he gets his nutrients medications.

                  Other problem for the first time. He has developed some clotting in his blood veins as a result of low protein. We have been treating him with plasma. It has been an emotional tough day for Laura and myself as we are not dealing with issues that apply to comfort and pain. We need to be very careful of how to deal with those serious issues. I personally have ZERO tolerance for the word suffering. It is important that we give our warrior a chance to fight and battle his illness but also keeping our eye on our goal which is to get him healthy and happy but not at any cost.

                  Paynter has been good to all of us and we need to treat him with the love and dignity that he deserves. Laura and I and all his vets and @Midnightlute (trainer Bob Baffert) are particularly conscious of that. We once again ask for your prayers as the next 24 hours will tell the tale. Please God give me the strength and the grace to do what's right with my horse and to give my vets the wisdom to make the right calls. And to bless Paynter with the courage to fight this very tough battle.""
                  But he thought, "This procession has got to go on." So he walked more proudly than ever, as his noblemen held high the train that wasn't there at all. H.C.Anderson

                      Sounds like he's developed laminitis in 3 of 4 legs. Not a good development.

                        From Thoroughbred Times's Facebook:

                        Owner Ahmed Zayat: "Paynter situation continues to get worse. He had a bad night and not such a good morning. ... Today he has been diagnosed with our nightmare scenario of laminitis. ... He has developed it in 3 of his 4 legs, which is heartbreaking. ... We need to be compassionate and merciful and treat our star with the respect and love that he deserves while giving him the best chance in fighting for his life."

                                  Ditto this. Sadly it seems like Paynter's issues are somewhat widespread even prior to the laminitis onset, particularly the circulatory problem. Just a darn lousy end to a rough road for this year's 3 -yr olds. I feel for the owners.

                                      Oh, just read about his laminitis elsewhere. How sad. And Baffert's father just passed away. Not a good time for that barn.

                                        Twitter update an hour ago: Specialty vet brought in, Paynter has mild changes, and mild pain. Special casts put on to support feet. His appetite is good and the "big D" has shown improvement. They will hellp him fight as long as he shows he wants it.
