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!

            I will always remember a horse that used to run at...what was it, River Downs? Some small track in Ohio, about 10 years ago.

            His name?

            This Dud's For You

            There was also a horse with the unfortunate name Ch*ngoso, which is Spanish for "f**ker." [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

            When the Jockey Club figured that out, they were forced to change his name.

            I used to think the world was against me. Now I know better...some of the smaller countries are neutral.

              I agree that Ivanavinalot is pretty bad.

              "Judge Smells" and "Smelly" always come to mind when I am thinking about bad names. And I saw another bad name recently when checking results on Equibase. There was a horse named "But." [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

                What about:

                Isitingood (get it?)

                Bodacious Tatas

                Spinelessjellyfish

                Icecoldbeeratreds

                I agree about Ivanavinalot, it just isn't right. I don't mind names with words smushed (Songandaprayer I like a lot, I liked She'sastonecoldfox too) but that one is icky.

                  I was just looking at some of Judge Smells's offspring to see what names they got stuck with and I found possibly the worst ever:

                        A German Stallion is named *Irish Stew* - I pitied the horse when I first saw his name in the yearling catalog.

                        You only have to look up the CANTER sites [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] I think on New England: *Stinko Miss* yuck!

                        Some of the bad names come from the nomenclature, in Germany the foals are named starting with the letter of the Dam: A colt out of an *N* mare by Nebos was first named *Little Nebos* [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img], then later changed to Lebos, quiet a racehorse.

                        Another one was *Karin I love you*, cantering around Southwest German track, named after the owners wife. The filly was sold, I don't know however if it coincided with the divorce.

                          How about Hoovergetthekeys?

                            JER: I didn't like Hoovergethekeys until I heard the story behind the name. The owner had trained his dog Hoover to retrieve his car keys for him and so he would say "Hoover, get the keys." I don't necessarily like the name, but all together it's kind of cute.

                            Another one is Tali'sluckybusride, which sounds awful at first, but she was named after the owner's dog Tali. They were either waiting for a bus or walking by when one was stopped and Tali was on the bus and got off and they adopted her. It's a cute story.

                                  Here are a few that are interesting but maybe not well known:

                                  A mare named: One Good Wack......barn name Wacker.

                                  I owned: I Am Rampage....he was. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

                                  How about the horse named Somfas....remember what that stands for???? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

                                  I always like the name Judge Smells....I've seen some of his offspring at breed shows and thought it was kinda funny. My mare was bred to him before I bought her and has a son by the lame name of Go Bear [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

                                    Another vote for Buffythecenterfold. Did they really need to show PICTURES on the Breeder's Cup coverage? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

                                      What is "Ivanavinalot" supposed to mean, anyway??

                                      Buffythecenterfold is probably the worst. Other than names like that Spanish name Lauruffian mentioned, it has to be the worst. How can you name a horse after a naked tramp in a magazine??

                                      As for some examples of my own, I can't stand names that are just one word repeated three times; i.e., Whywhywhy, Bella Bella Bella, and Roses Roses Roses. They just sound very annoying to me.

                                        There was a horse racing today in one of the Breeder's Cup races named WhyWhyWhy. I thought that was pretty stupid.
