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.

  • 3 horses picked up by county animal control - need help identifying by tattoo #

    My friend emailed me today, and these three horses were picked up by the Marion County Animal Control today and are tattoed with the numbers below. Can anyone help research these? The Jockey Club route is too expensive for her to pay. Just want to find out who they belong to so they can go home!!

      The "T" horse is a 1990 model.
      The "Z" horses are 1996 models.

      Registration numbers for these horse would be as follows:
      9022940
      9632017
      9628640

      You won't get current owner info this way, though, so it's not of much help. You will only get name, breeder info, pedigree, race history. It costs $35 per horse to have the tattoo numbers researched. I have an Equineline account and can look up horse info, but need a name in order to do it. Try calling the JC and see if someone will look the other way and look up the names for you --- they did it once for me with an AC seizure horse.

      Hope that helps. Are the horses in good shape? Hopefully someone has just left a gate open and will be looking for them soon.

        The Jockey Club is NOT an ownership registry. They do not keep track of that information so they will NOT be able to tell who owns the horse based on its registered name.

          Why is that and who does keep track of TB ownership?

            They do not keep track of that information...
            Evalee, although I'm sure they don't want to be an "ownership" registry, the first thing I did when I bought my TB mare was to file a "change of ownership" paper with them. I called the JC, they sent me the paper--I filled it out and returned it to them. I would hope if someone called enquiring about my mare they would be able to tell them that I was the last recorded owner.... So, if they don't keep track of that information why would they provide such a form for people to use and why did they send it to me????

              They will keep track of ownership if the owner so desires. They do not require owners to report changes in ownership so therefore the data bank of owners is hit or miss. Sort of like pedigree query's database, the info is only as good as the person who supplied it.

                Evalee is correct. The Jockey Club is a Stud Book for the purpose of tracking thoroughbreds for racing only. That is how the organization is chartered and they do not like to expand outside of the charter. They sent you a change of ownership because you asked for one and there was no reason to deny it. You also requested it for a mare, and mares can be placed back in service. It's not that The Jockey Club doesn't want to be helpful (I used to work there), it's just that they were developed and chartered for the purpose of pedigreeing thoroughbreds to race, not as a breed registry in the contemporary sense. It's been a long time since someone explained it to me, but if I remember correctly, at one time there were issues that if TJC were a breed registry, then they couldn't have a monopoly on the registration of horses for racing purposes. But, chartering themselves as a stud book only concerned with pedigrees (specifically for racing), they were able to circumvent that. The 'registration fee' you pay is considered an administrative cost. That was one reason why they tried to start the PHR as a seperate entity.

                  This seems to be pertinent info:

                  http://www.jockeyclub.com/registry.asp?section=3#seven

                  D. The Jockey Club will not respond to inquiries, other than pursuant to legal process, Court Order, approved Foreign Stud Book Authorities, recognized State Racing Commissions, Racetrack Authorities or law enforcement agencies with respect to ownership information as to a specific horse, except upon written request, from a person whose name appears in The Jockey Club records as having an ownership interest in that horse.

                    naters - Did you ever find out who these horses belonged to? I'm curious, as I live about ten minutes from the Marion County line. I don't know of anyone who might have lost them, though.

                    Horses are having a bad year in Marion County, where the unemployment rate is now about 20%.

                      Question as to Marion County in what state? On the other thread, I just assumed that Marion County, Florida was meant, which is the Ocala area.

                      Someone else assumed Marion County, SC.

                      We even have a Marion County, MS.

                      All are named after Francis Marion, the Revolutionary War Swamp Fox.

                            Even though the JC is not an owner registry, just having the last recorded owner could be of help.

                            Could that owner not potentially tell the County who he/she sold the horse to?

                            It would just be a starting point.

                            Marion County - FL. I wasn't more specific because I don't really think it mattered too much, all we have are their tattoo numbers.

                              These don't look like horses that were just turned loose due to the economy....

                              A lot of farms here have a LOT of horses, and may not notice two or three missing from the broodmare pasture immediately

                                Jockey Club problem

                                Two things --
                                One is what someone else mentioned. The economy. They might be lost on purpose. The second is that since many racehorses are claimed on the track, most papers are merely signed off. They never get registered per se. Been away from it for a bit, but believe that to be current policy. Tatoo # is relatively useless unless the original owner (not breeder -- but owner at the time of the tatoo) has information. Makes for a long paper trail.
                                Given the state of racing at the moment, this could become common.

                                  I started this thread to try to help get these gals home.....

                                  If anyone can look up tattoo numbers, that would be great, and would at least give my friend a starting point.

                                  Thanks.

                                    Since it's Marion County, FL, and there are tracks running in Florida now, Marion County AC could contact the tracks for identification. The tracks do have access to Tattoo numbers through their TPRB representatives and their officials and might be open to helping the government find out who these horses are.

                                      Thanks VR, great idea!! If they all have tattoos, does that mean they have been raced?

                                      Or possibly do they just have the tattoos?

                                        Hi Naters,

                                        Sorry to say, only the TRPB and TJC have access to those numbers. TJCIS will not do the tattoo research for free. My only suggestion is to have MC Animal Control call TJC's Registry Department and see if they will help. When they call, don't ask for tattoo research or they will send you to TJCIS/Equineline. They need to ask for the registry and explain to the rep the situation.

                                        Also, I PM'd you. Did your horse arrive safely?
