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!

  • Abandoned Arabian Stallions. Update post 77; Stallion 1 has lifetime home!

    Hi COTH folks. **Please cross post this info.** If anyone could suggest Arabian forums for me to post this info, that would be helpful.

    I would greatly appreciate your help in spreading the word on these Arabian stallions. They were abandoned at a foreclosed property near Santa Rosa, California --- about 1.5 hours north of San Francisco.

    Facebook photo album: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...3&l=dbfd9d20ac

    All four horses have lived the past 10 years in 24x24 pens without shelter or exercise, dental, hoof care, or worming. They need TLC. They are all halterbroke and friendly. We are told they are former show/breeding stallions from a large breeder. Registered names may be: Muscatin (1984), My Hi Stakes (1988 and son of Muscatin), My SX Superior (1984) and the last is unknown.

    These stallions will be humanely euthanized by the lienholder if no homes can be found. I'm giving it a try, I know its a long shot. I can be reached at watermarkfarm1@yahoo.com or 707-544-7584 for more info. Thank you, Katie Moore

    Sickening. Thanks for trying to help them. Here is a link to some Bay Area Arabian links, and part way down are some online forums.

      The 1984 stallion rings a bell. He may be a *Muscat son.

        Oh my, they all have such wonderful faces. Jingles they find a soft place to land and a pasture to run in, even if for a short while.

          Thank you for the links!
          Yes, Muscatin is a Muscat son.

          I would greatly appreciate it if any of you who have memberships to Arab forums would post this info. Thank you.

            There are also a lot of arabian peeps on the bayequest boards...I dont know how to cross post a link or I would put it on there.


            • #7
              Done...I posted it on the chat board as well as the rescue/rehome board on bayequest.

                  Who is feeding them? What a sad state of affairs.


                  • Original Poster

                    They are being fed daily by volunteers.

                    I should add that there are no papers, and we are going on what we were told are their names. It's very possible the names are incorrect. Their original breeder/owner was supposedly a James Paetz (deceased).

                    It would be wonderful to find them a soft place to land, even if it's just a few weeks of TLC, then put down...they have suffered a great deal.

                      I can't help, but for ID you might try looking for freezemarks, usually on the right side of the crest. I know it used to be relativly common to freezebrand arabs and I have seen several with the marks.

                      Good Luck

                        If you need hay/feed for them while waiting for them to get placed, I can drop some off. Let me know what you need.

                            Wish I had more space to give one of these old guys a good home for the rest of their lives. Another stallion would just be too much. So sad

                                Oh how sad. Stallion #4 is lovely and looks like he could make someone a nice riding horse if his temperament allows. Those poor old guys, I sure hope they get some love before they are euthanized. Unfortunately my house and yard are about the same size as their pens so I am no help.

                                    Aww poor guys. I have a soft spot for arabians. I would take one or 2 if I weren't on the other side of the country.

                                      Oh, that breaks my heart. They are really beautiful. Good thing I am not closer! I hope they find homes. Number four also caught my eye. Actually number one must have been stunning when he was younger.

                                      Fingers crossed for these guys!!

                                        Arabian Horse Breeder's Network has the info. They are really good at getting on top of these things.


                                        I see that is posted above...sorry for the repeat...
