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!

    Just to let you all know Weatherby's (GB's TB stud book) put forward both of my buckskin filly foals case to the International Stud Book Committee meeting last week....AND THEY APPROVED IT!!!


    I'll post the official document when it is available online.

    So Electrum was the first correctly registered as Cremello in the World and now his daughters are the first to be correctly registered as Buckskin in the World

    Hope it helps those wanting to register their buckskin TB's over your side of the pond now

      Well - isnt THAT great news!!! I'll give the JC over here a call this week and see if they are aware of this, but having said that, they still wont recognize cremello over here - we have to be happy with palomino and my Pearlescent mare (perlino) has a choice of white or palomino - they wont even allow bay for her ...

      I DID get "black" for my smoky black mare so THAT was a step in the right direction with her!

        You need to contact your USJC and tell them you know the ISBC have approved and can they correct your horses colour.

          There is a buckskin TB mare at my friend's farm and on the breeder's website it said she was the first offical TB registered as a buckskin.

          She is gorgeous by the way.
          The rider casts his heart over the fence,
          the horse jumps in pursuit of it.

              Here in German we get all the colors that are right too. It is very easy here, with each horse or foal I am getting the paperwork, I get a DNA test paper for the DNA sire and dam and a separate one for the color test, once this is back at the German JC, the right color or pattern is put into the papers. So we now have Palomino, Cremello, Buckskin (here its called Falbe which is not really correct as it is the DUN but we have only one word for both), then we have Overo and white too. Even Padrama with her roan/grey has got correct WHITE (weiss) in her papers instantly by the German JC. As Leigh says it is a decision of the Internation Convention, all JCs under that umbrella musts follow the same rules.

                The US JC is something rather "special" when it comes to correctly identifying a horse's color.
                Horse sense is the thing a horse has which keeps it from betting on people.

                  That's not quite correct about Germany..up until now they were only permitted Palomino, Cremello and Painted (Overo) as they were the only colours added to the list of colours allowed by the International Stud Book Committee.

                  No one individual country can decide to add colours to the list...it has to be authorised by the ISBC.
                  An individual country has to put forward the request to adda colour.

                  In the case of Palomino, Germany put forward the request when Glitter of Gold was exported from the US to Germany (he was registered as Chesnut)

                  I believe 'I was Framed' was the case put forward for 'Painted' by England but am not certain?

                  In the case of Cremello, England put forward the request when Electrum was exported from the US to England (he was registered as Palomino and his passort is now overstamped with Cremello)

                  And now in the case of Buckskin, England put forward the case of my filly foals..Auriane and Xenaura (by Electrum) because they were born in England and I requested their correct colour was listed on their foal registration/passport.
                  They have to take DNA colour test as evidence (hairs pulled by a vet and sent to Weatherbys lab in Ireland) and photo's to the meeting.

                  http://www.weatherbys.net/isbc/ This link shows you the regions that the ISBC covers. Each region is made up of individual countries that have their own Jockey Club/Studbook.
                  England and Germany are part of the European and Mediterranean Stud Book Liason Comittee.
                  The US and Canada are part of North, Central America and Caribbean Comittee.

                  Each region can not change or make a new rule without the consent of the ISBC. If the ISBC makes a new rule or change, each region can make the decision whether they include it or not.
                  Because England asked to add cremello and buckskin and the ISBC granted them added to the list of colors it meant all the countries in EMSBLC would allow them.
                  NCACC can decide whether they want to allow them in their region even though the ISBC has said 'Yes, you can'.

                  Hope that makes it clearer

                    The Germans will not use the english words unfortunately, so my passport for the white ones has WEISS in it instead of White. The US JC papers had grey/roan in them. In case of Buckskin it will be FALBE, not Buckskin, although Falbe is in fact the DUN which does not exist in the TB.
