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!

  • Feb 20th - R.I.P. poor Foxy ...

    ... and just when I said I wouldnt go and do that again ...

    I LOVE this mare!

    She has the stockings in behind that go up the face of her gaskin, the white leg in front, a totally bald face with an ice blue eye on her right side and a brown one on her left side.
    She is by a very well known sabino TB stallion named Blueyemoment that had two ice blue eyes, and to add to that - her grandsire is Indian Hemp - the same sabino lines that you find in See Me Come En's pedigree - another lovely sabino TB stallion!

    She will be getting on the trailer in ... oh ... about 30 minutes now and should be here by Tuesday or Wednesday.

    Here is the link to her on line videos - there are 2 of her - the ones that say "Mattie"

    I just LOVE the way this mare moves and jumps - she is so neat and makes it looks so easy as well!

      and her other side (the less colorful one)

      Nikita has a picture of this lovely palomino & white sabino Welsh pony (it honestly looks like Sato in mini version! ) and he has the ice blue eyes as well. I hope that she sees this and posts the picture of him.

      I am ***hoping*** that this cross with Sato will produce the coolest looking palomino & white foal with ice blue eyes. Now THAT would be SO neat!

          Wow Spot, you have a way of finding them, don't you?

          She doesn't have the hunter type movement that I like, but she sure is an eye catcher. What are your plans for her?

          Oh, BTW, I never heard anything for the individual that had the paint mare for sale. Not sure if she had already sold her. But, after two emails and no response, I'm going to pass on her.

                    Ah Jasper. I missed buying him by about 1/2 an hour. I'm still beyond ticked at myself for even hesitating one minute. Hopefully he has a nice home.

                    That would be so neat if you got a blue eyed blond kid with some nice white splotches here and there!

                      Very nice! What makes eyes blue v. brown? Is it unusual to have one blue and one brown eye?

                      I am learning about all this colored horse stuff.

                        hunt jump - I LOVE the movement on that filly! How awesome ... and me too - I LOVE the blue eyes. They are just so neat and so different.

                        I remember when GGold brought her Blue Eyed Angel mare to us to breed to Spot Pocket many years ago. She had the big apron face (more white than a bald face!) and 2 ice blue eyes.
                        My mares all took one look at her and ran away snorting, and then all stood in a row - on guard - snorting and watching her. She was here for long enough for breeding that we integrated her into the herd, but I had to keep a fly mask on her because of the sun (otherwise she'd burn and peel horribly) but also because it was the only way the others would allow her near the hay or the water. With a fly mask on, she looked just like one of them ...

                        You wonder what they think or see when they look at them.

                          <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

                          Its a sabino trait, LH, and is an indicator of color production abilities.

                          GGold has a lovely chestnut TB stallion named Albadou, and he has one navy blue eye and one ice blue eye (picture enclosed).
                          He's unusual in that his ice blue eye is on a chestnut background. Usually these blue eyes occur as part of a bald face - thats where you see them most often.

                          Yes - it is unusual to have one brown and one blue eye. Not so much in Paints or Clyde's, but VERY unusual in TB's since they dont traditionally have that sabino gene pool to pull from over the years.

                              and a picture of Blue Eyed Angel, the lovely TB mare that GGold owned that died as a result of foaling complications when delivering a gorgeous Spot Pocket filly (with 2 blue eyes and an apron face as well)

                              This mare was SO unusual in the TB breed, with her apron face and 2 blue eyes. You simply do not see anything like her in a TB. She looked like she had black eyeliner around her eyes - she was the neatest looking mare in the whole wide world!

                              I think she was the most gorgeous mare I had seen in a long long time and what a horrible shame to have lost her.

                                      Maybe some of you color breeders out there could help me figure out where to market this colt.

                                        He's cute, Hidden Hill! I love his black rimmed blue eyes. Is he by Kodachrome? I think the color trend may be dying down a bit and that there is not as much interest as there was. I have not had much interest in my pinto colt, but he is very unusual looking.
                                        Some people do not like his blue/brown marbled eyes. Underneath the color he is very nice.
