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.

  • Oldenburg Mare Missing Papers


    I am the new proud owner of a delightful Oldenburg Mare. I have tried googling her brand with numbers, and have yet to come up with anything. So I was hoping COTH could come to my rescue!

    Where would I be able to find out more about her? She has the oldenburg brand with the number 49 underneath. I also have the name of her sire and dam.

    My vet also said that she most likely had a baby before she was imported, and I would love to try to find her!

    Any help would be so much appreciated!

    Contact the Oldenburg Verband in Germany.

      Sunnydays, Thanks so much for the suggestion. I sent them an inquiry. Do you have any experience with them? Any idea of how quickly they might respond?

      Thanks again!

        I have emailed the Verband in Germany a few years ago regarding my one mare's registration papers and received a response (from Heike maybe?) pretty promptly.

          Callaway, that is great to hear! Thanks... How much info did you have about your mare?

          Even though I have limited information about her, I am hoping we might be able to figure out exactly who she is/where she came from, and info about her foal.

            I knew my mare's breeder and her pedigree and her complete history, just didn't have her papers. She was born in the USA and is registered GOV.

            I bought her from an amateur who bought her as a foal. She lost her registration papers and her microchip (never had it implanted). As a part of our sales agreement, I required that she get a duplicate copy of her passport and certificate of ownership since I bought her with intentions to breed her. It took a REALLY long time, like almost a year, for me to receive her papers. I'm not sure whose fault it was, but I suspect it was her previous owner taking her time with sending the necessary paperwork in, and not the registry. I kept calling to find out what the status was, and both Holly in the US and the Verband in Germany were extremely helpful in answering my questions.

              So does the previous owner always have to assist in these types of situations? I never had contact with them and doubt they have her papers either.

                I'm just curious that you've purchased what is obviously a registered mare given the brand on her and NO PAPERS. How do you know that you legally own the mare? By that I mean - did the person selling the horse to you have clear title? There could be liens on her or worse she could have been stolen at some point

                Even if you do find out the registration on the mare - to get duplicate papers you will have to provide an affidavit from the last owner on record.

                  Yes, we had to submit a transfer of ownership document and our bill of sale in order for them to issue a duplicate copy of her passport and certificate of ownership in my name. Even if you don't have contact with your mare's previous owner, you can still call the Verband to see what information they will give you.

                    CC, PM me with everything you know about the mare. Her name, her age, her color and rough description of her markings.

                    The 94 under her brand will be the 3rd and 4th numbers from the end of her life number (registration number). If you know her year of birth, I can get my contacts at the Verband to look for her in the database. You may not be able to get duplicate papers unless you can get a signed bill of sale and affidavit from the last owner of record, but we should at least be able to find out her lineage.

                      I have a bill of sale and transfer of ownership, so I believe we should be all good.

                      DownYonder, PM sent. Thanks for your offer to help!!!

                        CountrCanter, you need something from the last owner that the Verband has in their papers as owners. If you are lucky that is the one you bought her from, if you are not lucky, you have not even heard from the people the verband has in their papers. I the latter case you need to go back through all the owners and get an affadavit from each that the mare was legally sold on to the next person. Than you can optain a duplicate, which you would need if you would want to breed her or sell her as a "useful" broodmare.
                        Good luck and please let us curious people know what you have and secondly: if you know what you have, send a good old snail mail to the people that bred her in Germany. We all love to hear where "our" horses are and what they do and a snail mail wil get there and can easily be translated if the do not understand english.
