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!

      Well I wasn't gonna post unless someone else started it but let me first say that James Dean (Waps Rolls Royce baby) WON the non-tb yearling cots and geldings. Impressive class to say the least and man can that little boy move.
      My blanket app - Waps Ya Doin (Wap Spot) was 6th in that class and was 2nd in the earlier PA bred class. By the way, it was mine AND my horses FIRST EVER breeding horse show. Good first show to pick, right - I was definitely THRILLED with my results. My other horse, Waps Special Dark (Waps Millenium) was 5th in the PA and 9th in the non-tb 2 yr old which was a huge class with some really really FANCY babies (looked more like seasoned show horses than babies).
      Ginny was there and got to see her babies shine. I am so pleased with these babies I can't even express it. I would have never found them if not for this BB and I owe it all to you folks out there who raved about them. My yrlg was so good, acted like he had been doing this forever and again it was his FIRST time out probably 3rd or 4th time ever even on a trailer. GO WAPS!!!!!!!!!

                Yeah!!! Congratulations to all the Wap babies and owners!! I can't wait to see some photos of these beautiful youngsters.

                We are expecting a Wap baby any day now. The mare is due June 16th but I've suspected she will go earlier. The sire is JG Appaloosa's Wap Spot (not Wap Spotted). And the dam has Chocklate Confetti bloodlines. Should be a beauty.

                We have a Wap line mare that had a wonderful half Trakehner baby by Tanzeln last year. The filly is incredibly athletic and sweet. I couldn't keep my non-horsey brother away from her if I wanted. When I can't find him I just go looking for the filly and there they are together. It's kinda cute. She's been like a little ambassador to draw him into the horse world. Last week he helped me deliver my IDSH colt out of a Chocklate Confetti daughter and I never would have expected him to OFFER to get dirty in that fashion and allow himself to be closed up in a stall with a horse. Yes, he is that non-horsey but he really likes appaloosa personalities.

                  I too noticed all the 'Wap' babies when I was looking at the results!

                    I can't WAIT for the pictures - I just asked someone who was there if these babies have blankets?? Mr. Jig - congratulations - your results are fantastic first time out!!!!!

                      I dream of breeding some of my mares to the WAP line at some point... such lovely horses!


                      • #12
                        Photos are coming. I have not had a chance to upload mine yet. Virginia has photos and video, but she has been busy with mares to breed and a new colt this morning.

                        Mr. Jig your boys looked fabulous and were so well behaved. I'll be seeing you at PA Breeder's in the fall. I'm planning on bring this years filly by Waps Millenium out ot a daughter of Wap Spot 2.

                          Kathryn Southard told me that one of hers that won at Devon on Thursday is a WAPs baby. She had two winners--I think one in the yearlings and one in the 3 year olds so not sure which it was since they were both very very dark and solid colored.

                            Kathryn's yearling colt won his class (James Dean) and he is the WAP and the 2 y.o. TB filly winner was Armsglen, owned by a client of Kathryn's. This filly won the yearling filly class last year. JD is black, or very dark brown, and Armsglen is bay.

                                  I bred a few Waps years ago that were nice horses, and used to do some breaking for the Hoods. I have a 5 year old now for a client to be sold that is also a real doll. We nick named him Johnny Depp because he is soo "hot" ...but mellow and cool!!! He is dark bay with salt and pepper spots in the summer, very subtle , but fun!!

                                    I believe that Kathryn's name was also listed on Armsglen up on the board when she won.

                                    Hey Laurie--I tried to meet you. I walked into your stable area on Wed evening and looked around for you. Wanted to say hi! Saw no one at the time. The stalls there looked nice. Wish there was more time for meeting and greeting but was helping a friend whose filly showed in the yearlings.

                                        You did a wonderful job preparing the two boys. Their very first horse show, your first breeding show... What a way to start out.
                                        It was great to see my 'grandchildren' do so well. Waps Ya Doing and Waps Special Dark were both very well behaved.
