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!

  • Migrating Moon xx (TB stallion) - info?

    I stumbled upon this stallion and I like him. Anyone have a horse with him as a sire/dam-sire? I see many similarities with my TB gelding that has Buckpasser twice & Spy Song in the 4th via Crimson Satan, which is interesting to see (they do also share some other lines, like Turn To). I wish he was a bit younger...

    I like him too

    I think he is very nice...conformation is great too. A little weak on the dam line perhaps.

    I was looking for more on him and found this guy where Migrating Moon used to stand. http://www.upsanddownsfarm.com/Indian%20Express.htm
    he has a great dam line too. PatO

      I'd be scared to use Indian express, just because of the Indian Charlie. Not promising for long term soundness.

        Viney, any insight on his pedigree minue the obvious Buckpasser & Spy Song ?


        • #5
          It's sterling top to bottom. Chance Shot is in AFR and Kluwall. Noholme is a great line from the wonderful Australian sire, Star Kingdom. Silver Buck has someone here who loves him dearly, but I can't quite remember who. Maxxtrot maybe. Miss Brief has serious international level show jumping descendants in the brothers Easy Doc (member of the Canadian Equestrian Team), his full brother Turn on The Sun (Member of the British Equestrian Team) and their brother Sundancer, who won the American Invitational twice and was second once, as well as winning Upperville and the GP of New York. she is dam of their damsire. She has another jumper, Make Me Smile, but I haven't researched him yet.

          Of course Hail To Reason is a given. When the weakest line is a Tim Tam get, I'd say he'd definitely be worth looking into.

          He's also got as much Hastings in the back as any horse I've seen lately.

            topside:love Silver Buck!
            bottom:like Noholme, don't see Crimson Satan (good source of soundness) up that close anymore.
            Overall...have not seen a pedigree that nice in a long time.
            this was our TB stallion who had Silver Buck...though not as close up front.
            So where is this paragon of pedigree-ness that you found since he is not listed any more on the website PQ lists as his home?

              Love him!!!

              One of my favorite, easiest to train horses ever was Gemini Moon by Migrating Moon. She had Buckpasser on her dam's side, too. "Louise" was a gift to me from a dear friend who was dying of cancer. He got her, but she never even galloped, as my friend became ill so soon after getting her. Louise was super willing and gorgeous. She was slightly uphill, had a big ole butt, great hock angle, and good bone. She had a great mind, too. People always thought she was a warmblood.

              Sadly, Louise was injured in a pasture accident. We had surgery on her leg, but ultimately, I had to have her euthanized. My poor girl was in too much pain to be a pature pet.

              If I had the chance to get another Migrating Moon, I'd jump at it!

                They may not be many stallions and their offspring that I adore more than Medieval Man. Loved him, loved his look, loved every offspring that ever crossed my path (back in the 80's). Honestly, if I remember a not-so-famous stallion from that far back, chances are he sired stuff that was really not nice or really nice.

                And Silver Buck was and always is a nice horse...
                Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.
