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!

  • Anyone know this horse?

    I figured this might be the best thread to put this in. I bought my mare when she was 4 years old and she is now 12. She has no tattoo and no papers. I understand I probably will not find out much about her but I am going to try! I rescued her from a lady who had racehorses. It was suggested she might be a rare twin and is the smaller one (15.2) so she was not tattooed or papered. Any information is helpful. Her right eye is blue and her left is brown. Anyone know a stallion that is known to throw this? Blaze/white face and two hind socks as well as a front left sock. Bay TB mare. I will include a video that shows her markings as best I can. Again any info is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    I'm confused. Why don't you ask the person you got her from about her background, or did they rescue her and then you got her? Also, it might be helpful to say where you got her. Narrow down this large country

      Because the person I got her from was abusive and neglectful and all she said was she had no papers. Sorry, that would be helpful information! I bought her in Maryland if that helps!

        To attract more people who may know something, give as much as you can about where you found her, city, county, township or whatever. A picture might help but describe her markings exactly although the two colored eyes will help enormously. Put that you are looking for background on this mare, with the state in the title.

            Definitely no way to figure it out from there. By the way, stallions have no control over twins, the mare has to double ovulate. Some stallions do seem to have their swimmers hang in there a bit longer than others but still not enough to help identify your mare. I know how you feel, I would give anything to know who my guy really was but in the end it doesn't really matter.

              I was recently contacted by a person that owns a full brother to one of my mares. She discovered his identity via a DNA test through UC Davis. I have no idea on the cost, but if you really want to know you might check it out

                Thanks! I will check it out!

                Also Laurierace as for asking for a stallion who throws "this" I meant the blue eye but thank you I learned something haha!

                  Well, with the blue eye, I think she's got to be splash or frame, yes? There are not a TON of sires known for throwing splash or frame (although the blue eye could have come from the dam, too.)

                  It's probably fairly likely that the sire is local to you, so where you are will make a difference.

                    Not sure if my privacy setting will allow but these are pictures of her:

                      Can't help with the horse id, just wanted to comment on the video. Holy cow! That was a nice ride to the jump. Brings back memories of my sister and I riding our horses bareback anywhere and everywhere.

                                  I'd bet my left elbow that she has some Carnivalay in her. I also bet she's not a twin; the Carnivalays are really little horses. Maybe by Ameri Valay.

                                    Just looked them both up and she looks very similar to them!

                                      Anyone know if there is a list somewhere that lists all of a stallions progeny for the year? I figure since my mare has no tattoo and a blue eye I should easily be able to find her out of hundreds of progeny especially since she was born 1999 or 2000 most likely 2000. Pretty sure she is by Carnivalay but I am having her DNA tested to make sure.

                                        You have to tinker a bit with it...and pedigree query is not 100% accurate - but it does give progeny of sires and dams.

                                        Here is Carnivalay:

                                        http://www.pedigreequery.com/progeny/carnivalay

                                        Put the sire name in, click Reports to select what you want and then enter.

                                        You can sort of the columns, so if Year is best, click that. THe default to come up is Alpha by horse name.

                                        If she is Carnivalay or other MD bred - you gotta check out Josh Pons - his family stood many nice MD sires, he wrote some fun books on TBs and now has a great FB page about the current sires. Country Life Farm and Merryland. Nice outfit. There is a chance they can help ID - the mare is very distinctive, so one that is easy to remember if Carnivalay is the sire.

                                        Good luck. Fun horse and fun journey!
