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!

  • Mrs. Francis G. Rust

    My mare, Here's Suds (1963) was bred by Mrs. Francis G. Rust. Does anyone here know the name and know anything about the farm and their breeding endeavors? Very curious about Suds' history. She was by Inyureye out of Ambitious Kate.
    Airborne? Oh. Yes, he can take a joke. Once. After that, the joke's on you.

    A little creative googling turned up the following:

    Honolulu Star obits, April 11, 2001

    Sylvia Rae Rust, 64, of Huelo, Maui, a self-employed rancher, died Thursday at home under hospice care. She was born in Virginia. She is survived by husband Francis G., stepdaughters Jennifer Carothers and Cynthia Westberg, and four grandchildren. No services. Memorial donations suggested to Hospice of Maui or the American Cancer Society.
    and also that prior to Here's Suds, the Rusts bred at least one Arabian as well.

    But perhaps you already knew that.

    Google is stalker good.

      I wouldn't know Mr or the late Mrs. from adam, but as Barnfairy did as well even the most simple google search turns up stuff

      Mr. Rust's farm is listed as Halali Arabians. He is, for filed political contributions, listed as being in Feather Falls, CA 95940. Although a 2009 nomination of their sire "Moscato (AHR)" lists a Walnut Creek, CA locale.

      Looks like the farm was cited in the book "If Only They Could Talk: The Miracles of Spring Farm"

          What is more spooky is the Google van roaming America and snapping street views - when I plugged in my address in via their mapping application I could see my car parked in front of my residence!

            Glimmerglass- I have to agree with you about the creepy google earth street views! I'm sorry, but the whole wide world doesn't need to know my house, my cars (license plates and all!), any of my animals, etc. Heck, haven't some people even been contacting google about photos of themselves on there? I wouldn't want that either. Creepy. I don't want stalkers knowing where I live, what my house looks like, what my car looks like, etc...

            Then again, our SSN's are supposed to be "kept safe", yet you need to enter it for pretty much EVERYTHING. How is that safe?!

            LOL Anyway back to the original post...

              Just for grins and giggles I am going to PM you all of the foals out of your mare's dam. One was a La. bred stakes winner.

                That Rust family is likely the one that was very prominent in early Loudoun County history as the library in Leesburg is the Rust Library, that entire large tract of land that also includes the very nice community/gym center was their farm. Probably could find a bit about them in a non-spooky way in the history of the county.

                  Google blurs faces and license plates now in the street view images. However, there are so many things that are public record and now available online. Many counties have their tax assessment and GIS data online. It is very easy to find out where someone lives, what other property they own, how much they paid for it, and in some cases even see photos and a floor plan of their house.

                    The floor plans and photos are too much. However you are correct that real estate ownership, assessment, and tax records have always been a matter of public record so its hard to complain about it getting more accessible. It was only a matter of time that the pain of going down to the tax offices would be eased by on-line searches.

                    That said it is still was irksome when I read a small article citing my wife and I buying our place for x, only because the former owner is a partner in such and such law firm.

                    Anyhow back to the OP and hopefully the Rust information was of use.

                      I never thanked you folks for the kind efforts of finding out a bit about Mrs. Rust - the information is very dear to me. I was lucky to find the girl I sold Suds to, while I was waiting in line for the bathroom at a horse show. Babbled to her about my old mare I had as a teen, and she said "Suds was my horse" and I said "Suds was my horse!" and turned out Suds had taken her to the Medal Maclays. Made me feel so great to know she had such a good life after I sold her, and I was also told that after Donna had her, she was bought by and older woman who showed her AO hunter and retired her to her Fairfield CT farm, where she dined on lush grass in white fenced rolling fields to the end of her days. Just a few days ago, I spoke with Jane Dow at Westbrook Hunt Club who had Suds there when she was sold to Donna, the girl who had her after me, (I sold her when the horse was 11, I was 15, Donna bought her as an 11 yo girl) and also had some fondn memories of a great jumper, 17h liver chestnut mare. Donna's dad loved Suds and her breeding so much, (Suds could not have any more babies because of a bad birth at age 7) he found a half sister of her dam's and bought and bred her).

                      Jessi P, I don't think I ever got the PM about the other horses Ambitious Kate threw, altough I did know she had some very nice babies.

                      What a relief to know the good history of my first horse! But this info can now go into my files with a bit of history of what was a dear dear horse to me. Thanks again!

                          AmbitiousKate - I actually still had that sent PM in my folder 3 years later lol! What are the odds? I sent it to AnotherRound the first time - sorry - just resent it to Ambitious Kate.

                          Happy New Year!
