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!

  • Moneighs on eBay, including one by Animal Kingdom

    ReRun has 40 Moneighs®, on eBay for their annual holiday auction, including ones by Rags to Riches, Cigar, Medaglia d'Oro, Empire Maker, Lawyer Ron, Kona Gold, and The Green Monkey.

    Moneighs® are original, abstract paintings created by horses, using their muzzles, whiskers, hooves, and tails. A brass plate with the artist's name is attached to the mat, and a lock of mane or tail is attached to the painting as a souvenir. Proceeds from the auction benefit former racehorses in the ReRun program. For more information on ReRun and Moneighs®, visit www.rerun.org.

    Check out the paintings. The money goes to a good cause, and the art is fun to critique. (The influence of French Impressionism is apparent in a couple of the paintings, and I even noted an aspiring Gustav Klimt.)

    Cigar has a Cy Twombly thing going. But then he always knew where the money was.

    And I see that The Green Monkey's signature color is green.

      Looks like Rags to Riches has the beginnings of a western saddle on the upper right.
      They are sorta like ink blot tests. I think I can see some carousel horses in Funny Cide's picture

        Considering Lawyer Ron, rest his soul, died July 10, 2009 I wonder when he painted this work?

        Moneigh® Painting by Lawyer Ron

        I must say that this speedy work is what I expected of Presious Passion

        ETA: LR did works before in 2008 so this was possibly an "early" work

                I see a certain influence of Chinese brush paintint in Cowtown Cat's art...

                ETA--as a regular ebay user, I confess...I'm VERY annoyed by sellers who set opening bids substantially (ie more than $20) below the reserve price. Especially when I'm seeing bids of $300+, on auctions with opening bids of $100, that still haven't met their reserve. It's for charity, sure, but if the minium is $400, for example, it's really not helpful to set the opening bid so low.

                  I cannot stop admiring the shape of Presious Passion's foot!

                  If anybody has ever wanted to own a Moneigh, it looks like these might go as big bargains, compared to past prices. I'm not sure what ReRun will do about the reserves, but they have horses to feed and might be flexible. It's also possible that prices will shoot up at the last minute. For their sake, I hope so.

                  Jade Hunter (Azeri's dam), Distorted Humor, Zensational, and Leroidesanimaux have very low bids at the moment, considering the artists.

                    If you look at the bottom of each item's page, there are pics of the horses creating them...looks like Lawyer Ron to me.

                    I agree that the prices are low...what do they usually go for? I like the Rags to Riches and MDO ones.

                        I know y'all are just horsing around ( ), but rest assured that LR made the painting before his very untimely death.

                        The bids on paintings by star horses (especially posthumous work by John Henry, for example) have approached and maybe even exceeded $5K in the past. Cigar's paintings have also brought big bids (over $1,000) in the past, and the current example of his work is the nicest I've ever seen.

                        And the R2R and MDO paintings are currently bargains!

                          We are indeed as I was big fan of LR.

                          I believe the Smarty Jones works, and those of Funny Cide too, fetched lofty prices as well. No word if Zenyatta or Rachel Alexandra have been ask as well. I could easily see the Mosses agreeing to this charity effort with Z.

                            It's worth noting that the paintings by Ruhlmann (not offered by ReRun) and Kona Gold are also posthumous works.

                            Also, Zenyatta had a painting in the previous ReRun eBay auction, last spring. My advice at the time was that she shouldn't quit her day job. I don't recall the winning bid, but I bet they wish they had another they could put in the current auction. Or maybe they do have another and they are saving it for better times? (Hard to imagine what time could be better than this - at least in terms of fame, if not economy.)

                              The paintings sell today, starting at 4:00 pm (EDT). There are still some surprising bargains and also some surprising bigtime bids. It's fun to see which horses have enduring fan bases.

                                I won the Cowtown Cat!! It isn't the prettiest, but I love that boy! Did anyone see what the Presious Passion went for- I didn't realize these auctions were ending today and really wanted the PP painting, but by the time I got to ebay it was already ended.

                                  Congrats! PP went for $480.00. Highest bid was for the Midnight Lute - $960.00.

                                  And I had the winning bid on the Funny Cide!

                                    Grits, congrats to you on the Funny Cide. Thanks for the info on the Presious Passion.

                                    I am happy that the prices went up some late, but it seems it was a year for relative bargains.

                                        Oh, you got that mindboggling hoofprint, then! Nifty.

                                        Okay, everybody partner up with a banker. ReRun does have another Zenyatta Moneigh, and they will be auctioning it just before the Eclipse Awards in January.
