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!

    I think we are all trying to help this mare as she's got a history here that we've been following since viney's original posts from her track days, then she went through the Finger Lakes listings and popped up again. Someone correct me if any of this is inaccurate-I'm going by memory. With all the negative, sad stories out there, I for one am hoping for a happy ending for this mare, COTH style.

      Has anyone seen her recently?
      If not, I may be headed up to Canton or Syracuse again in a couple of weeks, and could drop by, and could at least get a couple of pictures if ok with the owner.

      My friend has e-mailed me about a couple of other issues, but hasn't mentioned her, so am guessing she probably has no interest, or room. Sorry.

        I e-mailed the owners from the ad, waiting to see if they get back to me...if we could GET her here and she is as nice as she sounds temper-wise, it could work, it's just no way would Dad drive to NY to pick up a horse. (I'm not on the insurance for the rig.) Hay is not a problem around here, the policy with Lucky is he's skinny so he gets it in front of him pretty much whenever he's not turned out.

          Danceronice, I'll chip in to help with the shipping to your place. Maybe some of the other folks who offered to help me will transfer their help to you.

            I'll keep everyone posted once they reply or we try the phone. We didn't want to call today with the holiday. Thanks, though, viney. She seems like a sweet mare and Lucky really wants some company.

              Wow! I haven't checked in to COTH in a couple days and this is taking a whole new turn. I would be delighted to see this mare in Dancer's barn and my offer to help with shipping still stands. All fingers crossed until she gets home safely.

                Well--good news for Broadway'sstardust, at least--I had an e-mail back from the owners, who said they've decided to keep her.

                  Would you mind offering yourself as an option if they change their minds?

                      After reading through all the posts/comments her I see that y'all seemed very concerned about the future of this little mare. I just wanted to let y'all know that the owners did ultimately decide to get rid of her. They were going to give her to a rescue but I stepped in just in time to purchase her about a week ago. I hope to turn her into an Eventer and a lesson horse.

                        Thank you, thank you, thank you! She's certainly got the breeding to be an eventer.

                          Kris the "rescue" that was going to take Broadway is the one who first identified her on CL, and after a few months went by and she had no takers, the caring and kind owner of Pearl (who was Pearl's one and only owner since the track) - asked us to network her, which we did. I had several lovely conversations with the owner and we were arranging to have her picked up and sent to Itaska Show Stable for training as a hunter and/or eventer and then she would have been up for adoption through Second Chance Thoroughbreds Inc. In no way was the owner ever getting "rid" of Pearl, in fact she was in tears when we spoke. I welcome anybody to come to our "rescue" and check us out. Pearl would have found her forever person through us and would have been loved, loved, loved. I take great offense to your post Kris.

                            oh geez.... keep egos at the door and just be happy the filly has a home. Do you know how much info Kris did have about the 'rescue'? maybe she was just told it was a 'rescue' and given some 'rescues', she could have indeed 'rescued' her.. Isn't it better she got a home right away though rather than go through rescue, training, etc.?

                              Well that gives the rescue room to rescue one more horse to retrain and rehome. Sounds win-win to me.

                                From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for being willing to take Pearl on, even if it didn't happen. You'd have done wonderfully for her, as Kris will.

                                  Thank you Viney. The point of my post is not all rescues are bad. We are very happy for Pearl. There is no ego here FI, just clearing things up.

                                    Well, it did not come through that you were happy for her. I am glad this mare already has a home and as Betonbill said, that leaves one open spot for another horse.
                                    Win/win.

                                      Glad she found a home that will work for her! The owner e-mailed me after she decided to sell again since I'd expressed interest, but from her description she needs a job, not light work and pasture puffery.

                                        I didn't mean any offense by my comment. The only information I had was that Pearls owner was considering sending her to a rescue. I never said the rescue was bad, just that I had the opportunity to purchase her befor she left. I am glad there were so many people interested in her and I have every confidence she would have found a family soon after retraining. I was simply letting everyone know where she ultimately ended up, and where she will hopefully be staying until her final days. I am well aware of the struggle Pearls owners went through in deciding to find her a new home (I hope that is a more acceptable phrase) and how hard it was for them to let her go. In the month that we have been together, Pearl has made great strides. She has already started gaining weight, building muscle, and refocusing on her new career. She is happy and healthy and that is what is important, not what barn she is living at.
