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!

  • Green Monkey fans, here's your chance!

      Has he had any foals race yet? Is he still standing stud?

      I was wondering about that because my belief is no matter the breeding, if the horse is that big of a dud, then he will not produce anything of substance so I was wondering if there is any evidence to prove or disprove my theory.

        Yes he is still standing at stud and no he hasn't had any race as he hasn't had any born yet. These things take time.

          .....I'll have to think on this a bit -- but there are mares that had unsuccessful careers on the track (or never made it to a race) but produced decent runners.

            Am I the only one who thinks he wasn't *THAT* big of a dud? Yeesh, he raced three times (in three consecutive months), had two 4th place finishes and a 3rd. Then they retired him.

            If they had given him some time, who knows, he may have improved.

            His foals haven't even hit the ground yet. Maybe they will all be super duds, but maybe not. Let's wait and see, shall we?

              Alibhai comes to mind. He was unraced.

                HA! I was thinking it was in 07 or 06 that he was retired...it was late in 2008...probably should have looked that up first.

                  I'm curious why you don't do your own research before coming up with your theory.

                    If you follow the scientific method, you come up with a theory or hypothesis, then prove or disprove it.....

                      As much as we all may laugh at the circumstances for which a group overpaid for the horse he isn't exactly chop liver as the would say. His race career was fully compromised by an injury with a pulled hind muscle which never went away. Also he didn't ask to be at the center of a bidding war.

                      Accordingly its not like he was a dud on the track without any excuses and further while his fee is perhaps too high (many other solid $10k choices abound) there are certainly far worse stud fees to pay for.

                        You mean 5k right Glimmer? And that is probably highly negotiable.

                            Note: I cited $10k above and yes his fee published is $5k

                            TB Times Jan 15, 2010 - "First reported foal for The Green Monkey"

                            The first reported foal by world-record priced juvenile The Green Monkey was born on Wednesday [Jan 13, 2010] in Ocala.

                            The foal, a bay filly out of I’m Angela, by Kayrawan, was described by owner-breeder Jacqueline Fleck as “big, beautiful, and very correct.” The filly is the third foal out of I’m Angela, a six-time winner and earner of $112,816.

                              Digging up another thread from the grave as a daughter of The Green Monkey was in the winner's circle today at Gulfstream Park

                              Your Lovely (FL) broke her maiden with her 3-yr old debut - Race 10. She was wheeled back in 10-days from her last effort (8th place). Her record is now 4 starts 1-1-1

                              She was in for a $12.5k tag

                              Is she the first winner by The Green Monkey? Nope. His first crop reached the track this past summer and at DelMar his daughter - Kinz Funky Monkey took victory on Sep 2, 2012.

                              She is now 3 lifetime starts 1-1-1 with $64,400 in the bank.

                              Per the BloodHorse in September they indicated that has 24 registered [at the time 2-year-olds] in his initial crop. He's standing for $5k in Florida.

                                  I just read on bloodhorse.com (Maiden Watch column) that half of The Green Monkey's runners have won.

                                  I don't know what the average is or how many runners he has had, but that sounds pretty good. Especially since the mares that were bred to him probably weren't great.

                                    According to the stats compiled by the Blood Horse, The Green Monkey currently has 5 winners from 14 runners. His crop's earnings of $208,256, while not particularly noteworthy, place him on the First Crop Sire List above such horses as Brother Derek, Notional, and Red Giant.

                                      The Green Monkey fee: $5k
                                      Brother Derek: $7,500
                                      Notional: $7,500

                                      (Today Red Giant garners $3k for live/standing foal)

                                      While the purchase of TGM was obscene he was unfortunately maligned for it and at $5k he is more of a value proposition then a lot of others. Smarty Jones at a fiscal cliff fall of just $7,500 today still makes little sense IMHO.

                                        He is absolutely no value at $5,000. Take a zero off, maybe for sport horses.

                                        He's so highly thought of that he bred 8 mares this year.
