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.

  • Danzig question

    I was googling a mare I knew, (Buy The Firm) and an offspring of her's by Danzig came up. Next to Danzig's name was APHA. How is that possible? And yes, it was THE Danzig.
    you look vaguely familiar.

    Is Buy The Firm a registered Paint?

      Without having seen the page to which you refer, my guess is that the designation is in reference to the offspring.

      Jockey Club registered thoroughbreds used to be eligible for registration with the APHA. (I think a horse must have at least one Paint parent to qualify for regular registration with the APHA now.)

        If you mean this:
        Before The Bell (TB) (APHA):; (Stallion); P00835253; (Danzig (APHA) x Buy The Firm (TB)); Location: Oasis Ranch Inc.;

        I think it means Before The Bell was listed with the AQHA as an approved (or whatever they call it) TB to breed QH mares to. The APHA after Danzig is probably just a mistake as I do not think any paints could have afforded him!

          Before the Bell is listed in the APHA (American Paint Horse Association) as a 1998 Bay Overo Stallion by Danzig (TB) out of Buy the Firm (Tb). Yes it is THE Danzig by Northern Dancer.

          Must have been a cropout that they took the trouble of registering as a paint as well as a Thoroughbred. Now days the Paint horse registry requires one paint parent so unless one of the Tb parents is already double registered as a paint there is no way to register future pure Tb crop outs in the Paint Horse registry.

          Interestingly enough Before the Bell has no paint registered offspring to date.

          I found his website with a photo

            Alot of the ND's were flashy in markings and coud be considered sabino.
            The paint registry is more closed now that it was when that horse was registered.

              He's awesome. Unusual for a horse with his pedigree to be reg. with APHA. (not bad, just unusual!) I wonder if he has belly spots? Since foals of 2005 one parent must be reg. paint but you can still have double registered TBs as long as you have one parent be one that was registered prior to 2005.

                He's got to have a belly spot

                Or he wouldn't be in the regular registry as he does not have enough white on his face or legs. I thought I saw one in the photos up near his front legs. Hard to tell. He almost looks more like a QH than a Tb. I have a half Tb Paint that traces back to Northern Dancer though The Minstrel. She's a pistol but is brave and talented and a blast to ride.

                  The white could also come from Exclusive Native, sire of Buy The Firm's sire Affirmed. I remember seeing a couple of wildly-marked Exclusive Native offspring at the sales years ago. One, a SW named My Darling One, was chestnut with very high white on her legs and a huge white spot on her belly; she sold to a Japanese buyer for 7 figures as a broodmare in the late 80's if I remember correctly.

                    Cherry-no,Buy The Firm is not a paint.

                    Thanks everyone-that is the horse I was talking about. It must have been a typo next to Danzig's name.
                    you look vaguely familiar.

                      It's my understanding that you can register a stallion with the APHA if he has produced cropouts (he doesn't need to be one himself). I think he had to have produced 6 foals with markings to be eligible, but I can't remember (it's been a long time). He could be a crop out himself, but I didn't see enough white on him. I believe he needs to have a white patch with at least 2"x2" of pink skin underneath above his knees and behind his eyes to be considered a paint himself. I couldn't tell from his photos. It's called a breeding stock paint. This can also refer to a horse by two paint parents that ends up solid. Before The Bell probably produces paints when bred to paint mares, so they got him an APHA breeding number. I had a solid registered paint once that I rescued from a local auction as a foal. Interestingly, he is now a teaser at Claiborne, and teased mares for Danzig.

                        We had a Danzig son and we've gotten a few babies from him with white hairs (rabicano?) all over them! We've got one who'll be 2 in '09 and his front half is dark bay, with a funny blaze, and his hind end is gray starting at the barrel!
