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!

  • Mare that gave birth at Louisiana Downs in 2008 retired from racing

    From the Paulick Report:


    Tiger Eyed, a Louisiana bred mare by Ide out of Loveswept Cat by Tactical Cat first made news back in August 2008 when it was discovered that she at only two years old, had delivered a filly foal in her stall at Louisiana Downs. The story got national attention.

    “We have been following this mare since the story about her having a foal at 2 years old came to light, “ said Marlene Murray, president of the R.A.C.E. Fund, a 501 C 3 non profit organization that helps retire and rescue thoroughbreds horses. “Tiger Eyed was a steady check getter when she was racing but when she stopped hitting the board last year, we contacted her trainer, Shane Wilson and asked him if he would notify us when they were ready to retire her,” Murray said. “Mr. Wilson said he would speak to the owner about it and gave me his email address to send our contact information. I would contact Shane periodically and he said he would let us know when they were done racing her.”

    “Months before we had contacted Donna Keen at Remember Me Rescue in Texas and asked her if she could take Tiger Eyed once she was retired so we knew had a good reputable place to send her and it was within close proximity of the Louisiana tracks,” Murray stated. Donna responded right away and said: “I would be honored to have Tiger Eyed here at Remember Me Rescue and I was at Louisiana Downs the day she had the foal and remember her well.”

    “On January 21st, 2013 Shane Wilson called me and said the owner was ready to retire Tiger Eyed,” Murray stated. “I contacted her owner, Mr. Cunningham to complete the necessary paperwork and to let Donna Keen know that Tiger Eyed was finally coming to her rescue.” With the help of Desiree at Richard Goetz Horse Transportation and Joe Offolter, Tiger Eyed was on her way within a few days to Remember Me Rescue in Texas.” Donna says “Tiger Eyed is a sweetheart, very smart and everyone loves her.”

    A collaborative effort between the R.A.C.E. Fund and Remember Me Rescue and her trainer making that call when Tiger Eyed’s racing career ended she now will have another life after racing. One thing for sure said Murray, “she will not be a broodmare. “We were able to find out that the foal Tiger Eyed had in 2008 was sold for a polo horse but unfortunately do not know where she is currently located.” “We are hopeful she will have a long safe journey. Who knows, maybe Tiger Eyed and her daughter will be reunited someday”

    She's really lovely, here's a link with photos and updates on her current training: http://www.teamkeen.com/horsesavaila...tigereyed.html

        She is lovely!
        Any idea what happened to the baby?

          I've had her in my virtual stable ever since someone posted on here in 2008 that she'd foaled at the track as a 2 yr old. She has been running ever since. She was in some claiming races for a year or so, finally for 5,000, but no takers. Then she was finishing way up the track at the end of last year and early this year. I was afraid she would end up in a very bad situation. Or break down on the track down there.

          I am so happy she will be adopted out, and hopefully end up with a good home. I board my horse and my horse's horse, so i could not take her on. But she has got to have good legs to have stayed in racing since she had the foal.

          I wonder what happened to her foal? Anyone know? Apparently she'd been out with other 2 yr olds, including colts, so if I remember the thread correctly, the sire was unknown at the time of foaling. And if the foal played polo, hopefully she got a good home somewhere. And I thought she had a colt.

            Very beautiful mare! So glad to hear she has landed in a safe spot.

              I'm pretty sure there was another filly who foaled at the track and she had a colt. They were able to get permission to race the colt, but had to be gelded simce they didn't know the sire. It was quite a few years ago. I remember I was amazed the trainer couldn't notice some sign of pregnancy. The only thing he noticed was she wasn't "tucked up" and fit looking after all the months of traing. I think the colt's name was Who's My Daddy. I think it was in Pa. But then, my memory banks are pretty shot full of holes these days, so I could be wrong about all of this.

                http://articles.philly.com/2001-04-1...aghers-filly/2 The mare was Compelling Sound and she had a filly who was named Amazing Philly.

                  Ok, I was two thirds right...there was an unexpected foal, but a filly not a colt she was able to race, bit no papers for breeding. There WAS a mare named Whos My Daddy, but she evidemtly knew who her daddy was! *sheepish grin*

                    Whos My Daddy was a KY bred if I remember right from the late 90's or early 2000's I can't remember exactly but I was racing in KY when it happened and everybody ragged on the trainer for not noticing a pregnant mare.

                    They had to geld him and he only had racing papers and not a full JC registration, wonder where he ended up?
