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!

  • Dispersal sale of TBs in SoCal

    Subject: November 13th Dispersal of 60 TBs in Banning - New Information


    Dear friends,


    as I wrote to some of you earlier, there is a dispersal planned for 60+ thoroughbreds on the morning of Saturday November 13th at 10am.
    The horses will be auctioned off the farm directly. If you or someone you know can attend and buy some of these extremely high risk horses,
    please do. You will need to go to the farm on that morning, between 8.30am and before 10am (when tack starts to sell), to look at the horses.
    Also, per the auctioneer, they will open one of the pastures for parking (5 acres). Here are the details.


    1. The farm dispersing is Green Acres Farm in Banning. The address and directions are:


    43601 Longhorn Road, Banning, Ca. 92220
    Take I-10 to Banning and exit onto Highland Springs Ave. going South to Sun Lakes Blvd. Then go LEFT onto Sun Lakes Blvd and follow
    ( past Country Clubs Homes) till road turns right continue to Longhorn Road ( Small Sign Post on Right) and Turn Left onto Longhorn
    Road and go 1 Mile on the right.


    2. The deceased owners (murder-suicide of December 2007) were Ramon and Martha Otero. The estate has been in a complicated probate ever
    since. The auctioneer is Mike Murphy, of Mikes Horse and Tack Sale in Mira Loma (which is an auction that SCTR attends monthly). The horses
    will NOT be sold in Mira Loma, but at the address in Banning above.


    3. The thoroughbreds are broodmares, former racehorses (most already catalogued, link below), and young likely un-broke horses from 2010
    weanlings through three year olds. The babies are out in pastures across the 47 acre farm, and there will be wranglers there on Nov 13 to round
    them up and into the auction pens per the second auctioneer whom I spoke to this morning. In other words, they will likely not be included in
    this catalogue, which should be updated tomorrow.


    Link to catalogue so far: http://www.bigdealauction.com/Papers-11-13.htm


    Link to photos so far: http://www.bigdealauction.com/11-13Pictures.htm


    Link to main auction page: http://www.bigdealauction.com/11-13Estate.html


    4. The surviving family is still deciding whether to sell privately or through the auction the stallions that stood at stud there:


    Half Term (1990)
    Epic Honor (1995)


    and we may not know until the day of the sale whether that will happen.


    Please help if you can. It would be very useful if you could let me know whether you will be able to attend, or contribute in any way to local
    organizations that may be able to attend. SCTR has zero space currently, and no funds, for additional horses. Pending adoptions may help us,
    but obviously the sheer numbers are beyond the scope of our ability to help in any significant way.


    Thanks!

    Oakstable, maybe you should post on the eventing forum as well, if you haven't done that. So many eventers (especially in Temecula area) who take TB's into eventing might be very interested in the auction.

      Why do the papers for "Half Term" describe him as bay when the horse in the picture is clearly chestnut? Is this a foal coat color mixup or what?

        There's some older gals on that listing - those would be the ones most likely to be passed over, is my guess.

        I especially worry for this girl:

        Chestnut Mare foaled April 29, 1985 by FULL POCKET
        Out of Syrian Circle by Damascus


        She's closing in on age 26. I hope she lands softly.

          The TB rescue folks in SoCal are very worried about the older mares being trucked off to Mexico.

            Nice pedigree. Also, she won $187K on the track.

            She deserves a nice retirement. Perhaps she's one for TIER or that other rescue up north?

              I try and help the local rescues whenever I can but I don't know any available to take in another horse. There are just too many cases out there- every instance is a huge scramble to pool resources.

              I'm ticked off that they are doing a herd disperal- NOW- when it's the worst time of the year to disperse a herd.

              I'm equally ticked off that I can't take anymore in!!! Darn it!!!

              Then again- as I told Whoanellie yesterday- I'd be in big trouble if I had a big farm- LOL.

              Now is the time for people who have been considering another horse- to take one on. Whether it be auction, adoption through a rescue, or a craigslist ad, etc... Good homes are desperatly needed!

                Probate courts are notorious for not working to race horse auction schedules. Sorry, when the probate courts resolve the outstanding issues, then things have to move into action, and this one sounds like it might have been fairly painful for any remaining family members...
                Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.

                  From what I heard though- it's been going on for 2 years. Other horses had been sold during this time. Also during this time they were still breeding. I'm not sure why the heck they would be allowed still do this if it was completely tied up in probate.

                          Trying to convince my trainer that he could possibly do well picking up a youngster and putting a couple months on it. Without seeing him, this boy could be interesting.

                            Just recieved this from a friend/donor of the rescue organization Neigh Savers.

                            Dear Friends and Supporters of the Banning Dispersal,

                            We have received 32 contributions and pledges ranging from $20 to $1000 for this rescue effort. Thank you and bless all of you that have contributed. Between several people who have indicated an interest to adopt and/or sponsor and Kim of Kimberlee Farms stepping up to possibly sponsor a horse on her own as well as discounting our stall rate to a bare minimum for these horses, it looks like we may be able to rescue as many as 10 horses and place them in our southern and northern facilities as well as perhaps one or two fosters and one in a partner rescue. We are also working with partner rescues in order to combine our efforts and stand as a united force against these killer buyers.

                            Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions and please continue to pass this information around to your friends and colleagues. We rarely get any new donors at Neigh Savers... This particular effort has resulted in 12 new friends and donors thus far. I would like to take the opportunity to welcome you to our Neigh Savers fold. You have made a difference through your caring and compassion for these defenseless creatures that cannot speak for themselves.

                            Words cannot express my gratitude..........

                              More likely a picture mixup, since the other stallion (Epic Honor) is a chestnut.

                              The horses look like they've been taken care of well.

                                I'm going to drive out there today to see how easy this is to find.

                                That exit has a lot of commercial development on the corners so there are plenty of choices to stop and get something to eat and drink.

                                  It should be easy to find. I'm actually going to exit at Sunset- it should be a straight shot from there. Hopefully every horse will find a forever home this side of Mexico. I'm hoping one or two are in my price range. Some of the mature mares are lovely.

                                      A bump for this. Please, anyone in attendance, post a recap. Let us know if the stallions are offered, and what happens with the old girls.
