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!

          That's what I was thinking. We discussed the months ago. Did they just release an ad or something?

                He still looks like a quarter horse. Blech.

                  I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I think he's long backed, downhill, and even though his neck is a nice width and is set high out of his shoulder (which I like) it's too short.

                  Ok, I'm bored and Romo just threw an interception so let me go see what else I can criticize.

                      I was reading in the news section of their website that they are building a barn just for him because they think lots of people will want to come and see him. Give me a break. I also saw they kept talking about all his injuries, who would want to bred to something that was always hurt and in pain.

                      His conformation is terrible. I bet the Sheik is glad he didn't spend his money on him after all.

                        Compare his conformation photos with that of Full Mandate or Omega Code on the same website. He looks pretty awful. Those other two look lovely. Really a nice topline and balanced looking.

                          Well breeding season is rapidly upon us so they are publishing the ad everywhere. The horse never went lame either he was a terrible sulker. Maybe not the horses fault who knows the start he got but still not good. I can't believe they didn't GELD him.


                          • #14
                            I saw him at H/D last week. I was not impressed. He wasn't bad looking, but he wasn't $16M stellar either. If I had to choose a horse to breed to at that farm, it'd be City Place. I thought he was their nicest stallion overall. Belgravia did not impress either (for those who might be curious).


                            • #15
                              Perhaps he should be the teaser.

                                yes, I too beg to differ on the conformation. At least based on that picture, he's have to be one hell of a runner in both winnings and starts to give that look a try.

                                Maybe the picture lies, but if it does, it lies in a lot of ways. And I'm thinking HDR knows a thing or two about setting up a stallion prospect for a photo shoot. Woof, woof! Who let the dogs out? ;D

                                Las Olas - and City Place's dam and grand dam were not known for their stellar conformation, just their gritty determination to win and no small talent in producing winners with that instinct. I like City Place, he's not perfect, but he sure looks like a much better value for $5000!
                                Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.

                                    He looks like a typical Storm Cat. They all look like quarterhorses because they are all sprint bred.

                                    If you don't like his looks, then you probably don't like the looks of Storm Cats in general.

                                    Pity the poor sucker who paid 16 million for him in 06 though

                                    Yes, $500. sounds about right.

                                      I differ with Blue Domino. Not sure if you've seen The Green Monkey, but I sold plenty of Storm Cat offspring and I don't think he's that ypical. That's the problem. If he were more typical, I would probably find him more appealing. IMO he has more that the standard allotment of Storm Cat conformational faults. He has some of Storm Cat's, Unbridled's and Valid Appeal's faults.

                                      Having said that, I don't think he's a horrible individual, and he has the pedigree for a potential sire. I am just having a hard time seeing a $16M price tag (or a $5k stud fee). I think they had to stand for $5k because that is the 'taboo' level for Florida. They will ceratinly be dealing on that fee.

                                        Anyone else really like Full Mandate? I actually think he's the nicest stallion of the group.
