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 about a month and a half til my Mighty Magic baby is (supposed to get) here!!!

    The random jumping up and down and squeeling in public places is starting to show up now and then. My fingernails have already been bitten down to nothing. Foal halters and creep feeders have been purchased. The insurance policy is all paid up and in gear (so I am at least getting some sleep at night). Can you tell this is the first foal I've bred myself????

    Anyone else have a Mighty baby on the way or one the ground?

    Anyone else have any baby almost here and getting excited?

    My daughter is in Germany and rides Mighty Magic. She is enjoying getting to know him as we are breeding a mare to him this season.

                    Mine is overdue now, so will be glad to see it. Extra special as out of a homebred mare who was the only filly we had out of a homebred mare we had to have put down last year.

                      ive got my maiden (and love of my life)in foal to Apiro at 334 days today. she doesnt look like shes having it any time soon either :/ (hoping for a COLT!) this will be my first foal experience as well-my nails a bitten to nubs, im losing sleep, bought entirely too much stuff that im sure i will find useless... spent the last month cleaning the mommy field-trimming branches, picking up rocks,baby proofing fences and gates re-seeding, etc. I built them what we affectionately call the 'Taj MaStall'- a palatial 14x28 with 2 automatic waterers. and now i just wait, with no sleep...

                            I didn't breed to this stallion, but I love this quote! Whenever I've had preggos in the barn we call it the "Princess Palace" as the mares are royally spoiled.

                                I am interested in Mighty Magic for my Holsteiner mare because of his high percentage of TB blood, but I'm reluctant to breed to him because of reports that he throws heavier than his TB-infused pedigree would suggest. Elizabeth, I seem to remember this being a comment you made about your MM baby, but you were obviously sufficiently impressed with the foal to breed back to him. Are you breeding this time to a mare with more TB blood, or are you hoping for a similar result to your previous MM foal even if it MM didn't refine as much as you had expected?

                                  I've found that with my foal, and with other MM foals that I've known, that he actually refines mares. I bred to a heavier, thicker mare and I got a leggy, much more refined colt. All the MM I've seen have been more refined.

                                  I'm trilled with my guy - so much so that I'm thinking of breeding another mare to him next year.

                                  This is my guy at about five month old. I made the album public so you should be able to see it.

                                    Tradewind,
                                    The filly I had this year is out of a 1/2 TB mare by Riverman. She is finer than my colt, but hard to say if it is due to being a filly or because the mare is taller and more refined than my other mare. Her neck could have a higher neckset and unfortunately, she has 1 very offset knee, which neither the mare's other foals nor my other MM has. Both of the mares I bred are 1/2 TB
                                    My 2 yr old MM gelding has been started and the trainer reports he has one hell of a jump and has been really easy to deal with. Told me he should be an event horse ( yay!). I am picking him up next week and can show you pics if you are interested, as well as the filly. Just send me your email
                                    I did not expect a lot of refinement in any case, due to what the breeders in Germany have said., but my first MM is going to be a substantial horse. You'll hear me coming xc!
