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!

  • Looking for gelding Piety

    Looking for a gelding named Piety. Last I could find he was for sale in PA but all leads have come to dead end. Chesnut with lots of chrome, would be about six or seven. Need to know his location, will help if he's in trouble. Has retired from racing but can't locate him. Please help PA peeps!

    It always helps in these situations to list who the last trainer was. Trainers, most of them anyway, often know where the horse went after it left their care.

      Last race I can find is at Penn National, $4k claimers, June 4/09, trainer was H. Thompson, Jr.

        interestingly enough... this last could of weeks has been chaotic with the TB's Lisa and I have been super busy. This thread was brought to my attention because of this horse. Short version... 3 TB's wind up in need purchased for slaughter story was they were given away 4th one Chestnut was reported to be with them not ID'd by us because he broke his leg in kill pen and was put down immediately. When we did our research a lady named Christine had them and I did contact her she claims she has Piety and that he wasn't the one who broke his leg - can't verify but she claims she has this horse after she claimed that he was traded and I do have all the correspondence stating such... so you may want to contact her http://www.equinepost.com/freeclassi...=7121&CatID=16

          OH NO

          I am a little confused by your post AC4H and the link did not work for me when I clicked on it! I hope I am not too late to help this wonderful horse. If you(or anybody) could get me a contact number or email I will arrange to ship the horse to my farm where he can live out his life if possible. My husband fell in love with him when he trained him as an assistant for Frankel and I would love to bring him back home! He deserves that!

              Sorry - didn't mean to confuse you. Her name is Christine. I spoke with her in conjunction with the others who were reportedly given to her then wound up being sold through auction and purchased for slaughter. They were all saved. Her email to me stated she has this horse. Her email addy is clarkssummitink@yahoo.com please let me know how you make out and if he is indeed there.

              edited to add if you want to contact me privately info@ac4h.com will be happy to share more if this is still confusing.

                  waiting waiting waiting

                  The waiting is killing me. My husband is very anxious to make sure at the least the horse is safe from a uncertain future. Ahhhhh, poor Piety....We are attending Frankel's service today(RIP Bobby) I would love to tell the Juddmonte boys( the breeder's and friends of ours) that he is safe and hopefully on his way to us here! Fingers crossed!!!

                    Not to sound like a hardass because your love for the horse is apparent...but when I read "Updated to Urgent", that implies that you talked to the person who had him and they said they sold him to a feedlot in New Jersey or something.

                      confusion

                      I was under the impression that the horse was in a feedlot somewhere. The one response was confusing to me, but has since been striaghtened out. Still actually waiting for some contact to see if he is with the aforementioned person or not.

                        Summerly....did you ever hear back from her? Surprising she didn't call you back right away if she had the horse & you were offering a good home...

                          no response

                          I haven't heard anything and both my husband and I are quite disappointed at this point but maybe he will turn up or some kind of news will come forth. It is quite frustrating though. Still hoping...

                            Does not sound good. I would contact the auction barn and see if they id'd the horse they put down. Sorry, but sounds like this person does not want to contact you.

                              final effort

                              I have made one final effort to contact the person thought to be in possesion of him. I suppose I will look into contacting the auction house like you said tomorrow if I get no response. Not something I look forward to doing in fear of bad news....

                                Keep trying. Don't give up until you can at least find out what the hell is going on.

                                  Can you find a phone number?? I would try that. Sometimes email addresses change and you won't neccessarily get a bounce back message...

                                    Florida?

                                    Well since I still had no contact from the person who was thought to be in possesion of Piety I called the former trainer in regards to any info he might be able to give me. He said to me he was contacted that the horse was indeed in a kill pen after his owner had thought he had given him to a reputible home. But his owner did put up the money to get him out and now thought he was given to somebody in Florida. Although he could not be one hundred percent sure that he actually went there.
                                    So that's what I know to this point. Still no other contacts or info. So I guess I will keep looking and broaden my search to FLorida.....

                                        Christine's daughter Adele also has a Piety (different spelling) listed for sale, same location but it sounds like a different horse.
