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.

  • Looking for more info on this TB at Suffolk

    I am looking into bringing this guy home from Suffolk this weekend. I was try to look up his pedigree and race record but am having no luck. I am not a member to any of those sites. Can someone help me out?

    Dark Bay, 16 hands, 3 years old

    "I'm a Buckaroo" very sweet guy who is lightly raced. Just not fast enough so his owner would like him to move onto a new career. Very nice to ride to the track - no problems. John Smith 856.882.6790 (he still has his NH # too). John said people can call 352.361.6007 and ask for Charlie as he will be at the track for another week.

    Here is a bad pic of him:

    I can't tell if he is over at the knee or if the pic just caught him before he was about to step forward.

    Any insight on his bloodlines would also be appreciated. I am looking for a hunter/jumper prospect for an ammy adult.

    Drop the drama and ride!

    You'll have to contact CANTER and get them to recheck the name. There are no matches for "I'm a Buckaroo" or any close variations listed with The Jockey Club.......

      Thanks Cammie!! I'll put in a call now.

        Well, I can tell you his name is actually I'm Your Buckaroo.

        I don't know him or his trainer but here's his pedigree/tabulated race record: I'm Your Buckaroo

        and the charts from his short career:

        I'm Your Buckaroo

          Aha, mystery solved. Got to admit, I'm laughing over the fact that he's by Tree, who is out of Trunk.

            Thanks guys! I just got off the phone with the trainer and I'm Your Buckaroo is correct. Someone is looking at him tomrrow at 10 I really wanted to go pick him up in the morning.

              Change of plans. The trainer called and that girl is not coming in now. So I am off tomorrow.

              Anyone have any insite on his breeding?

                *shrug* I like seeing Admiral's Voyage and Count Fleet. Not hot on Raise a Native and Native Dancer, especially RAN's bad ankles. But it depends on what you want to do with him. I'm not seeing any of the BIG sport-horse names, but nothing really bad, either.

                  Did you get him?

                  I don't mind seeing RAN once. It's when he's there two, three times that gives me pause.

                  They're far back but I really like Bold Ruler and Sir Gaylord/Turn-To for sport.

                  Say...are you the same person who had Idol Gina?

                    Did you go see him??


                    • Original Poster

                      I did. He came home with me today. Wicked nice boy. He is a little upright in the front but I hate how his feet were just done, even for racing feet. So my farrier is going to come out and get his racing plates off him and I'll see what he thinks. He won't be 4 until May 6th and he is going through a growth spirt right now. His butt is at least 2 inches above his wither. His knees and ankles looked great. He is a super sweet boy. Walked right on the trailer without a care in the world and started eating hay. When we got home he walked right off like an old pro. He had no idea what to think of the small older pony that he saw, but other than that he took everything in stride. I just got back from riding my other charges tonight. I hand walked him in our indoor and he didn't bat an eye lash. I was very impressed.

                      I am hoping he will be my hunter, or maybe my daugther's hunter.

                      I did have Idol Gina. He made it very clear he didn't want to be a show horse. I sold him to a great girl in CT who was having a blast with him last I heard from her.

                        Oh I know, I've seen some real beauts for shoeing jobs come off the track. Don't worry, he's young and his feet will definitely improve with correct trims.

                        Good luck with him!

                        Sorry to hear Idol Gina didn't work out for you, but I'm glad he's found a good situation!

                          Thanks! His feet are actually great if you ignore the fact they actually took all his toe off!!! Very healthy hoof walls. I am used to them coming off with long toes and no heals. I think once he grows some toe back his pasterns won't be so upright. He is sound, I just think they have his angles all screwed up. I would really like to take his shoes off and just let his feet be for the winter, but I don't want to make him foot sore. He isn't going to be doing much besides some light hacking this winter. I want to give his body a chance to grow up.
