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!

  • Video of Totilas at Schockemohle's Stallion Show

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5ltb...layer_embedded

    Just found this link on Facebook. Unbelievable stallion. Those that do not care for extravagant knee action, should refrain from watching (:

    The ability of this stallion to go from maximum exertion to total relaxation is incredible.

    Your timing for posting this video could not be better, we are breeding to him, screw all his critics. IF his foals are even half as good as he is, they'll still be twice as good as most others. He is thrilling, makes your heart skip a beat...

      Good for you Cartier! I thought the same thing when I just watched this video. Also felt stupid for not having placed an order yet for his frozen (:

        We’re working on finding a good repro vet. We absolutely loved Dr. Hurtgen… and always had great success with him, always got in foal on the first cycle, with one dose (both with the two breedings to Lord Sinclair and the breedings to Sandro Hit). When we used other vets (for Contango and Feinbrand breedings) it took numerous cycles and as a result it cost a fortune. Clearly, given the price of a dose of Totilas, finding the right vet is more critical now than ever. I wonder if people are still having good succes with Nandi Vet Assoc now that John has passed on. Given that he set such a high standard, I would expect that those who worked for him (whom he trained) are pretty good too. Arthur will have to check it out. Being an OBGYN, he's as close as we get to having a repro expert in the family.

          My only critique of the video is the curb seems to be almost parallel to the ground most of the time Maybe they are still getting acquainted?

            I do think he's beautiful and cool, but you guys are right he's definitely a specific type, reminds me of a park horse, but actually doing it right in true collection.

              I just love how the suggestions on the right are a mixture of videos of Totials doing dressage and "how to make tortillas" videos.

                Gives me goosebumps. What a horse! (though can't help but wishing it were still Edward on him).

                  I think there are probably a few more criticisms of the ride… We looked past them. We are thinking in terms of the stallion as a breeding animal, and he suits us to a T.

                  Years ago we were drawn to breeding to Gribaldi, and got talked out of it by supposedly knowledgeable breeders. When we now look back at what they produced (and what their foals/ breeding choices are doing now in sport), we are more strongly connected to this truth, “Do your research, then do what you think is best; you are the one who has to live with the consequences.”

                    I think I am going to start saving up, though I am truthfully unsure as to wether the mare I have in mind would suit him well enough?

                    Cartier, be thankful you were talked out of Gribaldi. The frozen was useless (we also really wanted to use him and even ordered semen to find out it was not good). He was a great sire though, such a shame.

                        Cartier; Nandi has a new repro specialist running the show now...Dr Sheerin... he was with doc Hurtgen way back in the day and recently been at Rood and Riddle. I have been asking about him, supposedly he is top notch.. I think today may be his first day...

                          Just thinking how much more he could show if he wasn't so tight in the curb. The other criticisms probably wouldn't make a difference to the overall impression I'm not a big "knee" fan, but still, WOW!

                              Agreed. I adore the horse. The ride doesn't look as effortless, that's for sure. He and Edward were so suited. Oh well. Doesn't change the fact that Totilas is one in a million

                              I'm thinking of him next year. It's hard to say what type he works best with yet I think, so I'm kind of waiting for a few more foals to get a better idea of a good mare for him.

                                  OK -- I'm going to show my ignorance here, but what gait is T. suppose to be doing when he first enters the arena?

                                  Is it a working trot? Extended trot? Passage? Collected trot?

                                      Dr. Peter Sheerin is the new vet at Nandi. Dr. Sheerin is excellent and an extremely nice man to boot. The practice is in great hands and although it is hard to replace Dr. Hurtgen, you couldn't ask for a better choice.
