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!

  • Another TB on a broker lot- anyone recognize him?

    Saw this giy on the AC4H broker listings. 4th page, last horse on the bottom. Bay with white markings. very cute. looks very much racing fit in the photo without tack on. They want $650 for him. Im guessing he will ship to slaughter this comming monday if no one can take him. His tattoo starts with an F and hes around 16hh. Pass this along if you know of anyone looking. im out to help save another this week!

    ran a quick search and the closest I could find, from a partial and the white markings, is a horse named Little Big Moon.

    *if* that's the right horse, he raced at Suffolk in 2006, and Penn National until August.

    And, interestingly, the horse is listed as Sold on the CANTER PA site.

    Looks very much like the same animal. Can't see his head, but the leg markings look identical to me.

    From the description it sounds like he's a nice horse to ride, too, hopefully someone picks him up through ac4h.

      I can't open the link provided but I tried that horse, not too long ago, promoted as a jumper prospect.

      http://www.dreamhorse.com/show_horse...1&share_this=Y
      Seller had a few, gets them from a friend/neighbor/trainer.

      Was maybe 3 wks ago, was his first ride off the track.
      Despite a very long back he had a really nice, balanced way of going and was a nice ride, but had run thru a fence a few days prior and was not 100% sound, so I didn't seriously consider, then a fellow COTHER tipped me off to the CANTER ad and the screws in the leg. I informed the seller and she said she didn't know, placed "dressage" ad which was almost immediately sold.

      Anyway, I have no idea what the screws mean for the future but he was a super sweet guy and a comfy ride. I hope someone can pick him up and give him a good home.

        I know a horse with ankle screws who was sound and strong enough for jumping. He had no problems whatsoever (though he did have a very substantial amount of time off after he stopped racing - like years).

          screws in an ankle are usually to fix a fracture (like a condylar or sesamoid) but if they come back, they usually come back just fine.

            People have to remember, that virtually no surgeon would recommend a surgery that requires screws is the horse wasn't going to make a 100% recovery. There are hundreds of horses still racing with screws somewhere in their limbs. On a side note, I have a mare with 3 screws, but they are loose in her head somewhere.

              I have a ton of screws above my ankle, and I'm 100% sound

              Seriously, in humans, they say screws/plates make the bones/area stronger. Wonder if it's true for horses?

                They say the same for horses.

                  Not trying to hijack (so PM me if really interested) but what about a horse w/ a screw in his knee? In training for a lower level eventer.

                  Details: slab fracture, raced after, CANTER didn't know, last track trainer didn't know (horse was claimed).

                  The only reason I found out is b/c he came in from the field w/ a bump, gave it time, vet looked at him & pronounced him sound but offered x-rays "just in case". Everyone had a moment (including the vet) when we saw the screw!

                    The conventional wisdom with a slab fracture in the knee is that the horse may go sound again, but you'll still have a ticking bomb. If you are seeing a bump after turnout, it would really concern me about his ability to hold up to eventing. The screw itself wouldn't bother me, but the nature of the injury would.

                        Passed on one last year with screws in the knee as I knew I would never be able to sell him if he did not work for me, but my A/O horse was purchased after a successful race career on screws in a hind pasterns and they never caused any trouble. He raced on them for a year or so and jumped on them for 10+ after that.

                          Thanks for the info all. The swelling has almost disappeared but it seems to reappear if he happens to get less turnout than usual. (He's normally out at least 8 hours, approx. 22 in the summer.) The day before he (re)injured it a new horse had been introduced to the heard & they were all acting like idiots.

                          The vet suggested I take things slowly, make sure he's fit, and let him tell me if he doesn't want to do it. Quite frankly I've never jumped him over 2'6", rarely jump more than once a week, & he's a fab trail horse so I'm fine with that plan. But he is the typical over achiever eager TB & he loves to jump so I am concerned that he'll be willing to overdo it.

                              I posted the notice about this TB on the Alex Brown website, after seeing it on COTH, so hopefully this guy can find a home. I would hate to think of him shipping to slaughter and the more people that see his ad, the better chance he has of finding a home.

                                  I'd heard rumor that that was in the works, so pleased that it ended well.
