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!

  • Blue Eyed TB Filly/ Color Experts Please

    So the Friday evening my husband was watching racing and I was doing paperwork. He says quick look, there's those weird eyes your always on about. I'm like what. Sure enough as the filly is going into the gate I see she has a blue eye. No white or grey tail and very few markings on her legs but she did have a normal width blaze with the white extending over both eyes. Now I'm not sure if she has 2 blue eyes as I only saw her near side.

    She is by Pulpit out of Turn And Sparkle by Danzatore. She's trained by Michael Jarvis and owned by Hamdan Al Maktoum.

    Her name is Makaaseb.

    Just thought it quite a rarity. I could possibly email the trainer and see if they could get me a picture. The worst he could do is say no. But I just thought it odd to see the blue eyes and very few other markings. Oh yeah she is bay by the way.

    Is this the splash gene?

        There is also a stallion/gelding with stockings and a blaze that has 1 blue eye and 1 brown. His name is Phantom Blues. Also Bold Phantom Go is a black tb with stockings and a blaze with blue eyes.

          I don't see a pic of Phantom Blues on pedigreequery, but Bold Phantom Go is DEFINITELY Splash, wow, look at that face!

          His face screams Splash, and his leg white is also very Splash

            Thread hijack here: My (unknown pedigree built like a bulldog foundation QH) gelding has one blue eye, big blaze and a few socks. Is that splash?

              Most likely, yes. If the socks have a horizontal look to them, or if the blaze looks "bottom heavy", or he has white coming up the underside of his jaw, those are likely indicating Splash.

                Blue eyes and splash...

                OK, someone explain this mare's blue eye.... She has as much white on the rest of her as on her face.

                ...she is a registered TB.

                  I have no idea about the blue eye, but she is stunning. I don't usually like blue eyes, but the blue and brown look lovely together.

                          Splashed whites have "round" markings not "jagged" markings and are "usually" deaf. Splashed whites "USUALLY" have white on the "Bottom" of their tails and they look like solid colored horses that walked through a big ditch of white paint

                          Bold Phantom looks not at all Splash, he is a Sabino.

                          The confusion comes from people looking at patterns and guessing--- You can not tell what a horse is by just looking and guessing - They MUST be tested. Horses can have mixed patterns as well. Not everything we read is true. Splashed whites are deaf as a rule and I know of only those two from new Zealand in T.B.s that are POSSIBLY splashed whites-- they are both deaf as well.

                            After looking over those refrences, I see lots of them that are stated as being "Splash" that dont' have white tails, and the last one had lots that had minimal white.

                            Is it possible that the defness is similar to the way dalmations are def, the more white they have, the better the chance is? As in maybe only homozygous splash are def, or it has to do with the amount of splash in them? (I don't know, I'm only a hypothesis)

                            To me, if I'd just read the refrences, and looked at the Bold Phantom horse, I'd say he looks splash or sabino, but wouldn't be able to definativly rule one out.

                              Most pintos have sabino as well (try finding tobianos without face white). There aren't a whole lot of horses that display only one pattern. Especially since there are so many ways for KIT to mutate and produce sabino style markings. I assume that blue eyes indicate a strong chance that splash is present.

                                BULL again.

                                http://www.luckylranch.com/DSC05706_Jackpot_WOWZA.jpg So you think that horse needs to be tested before we call him a tobiano?
                                Horses can have mixed patterns as well. Not everything we read is true.
                                Yes and APHA on color is DEFINITELY one that isnt true.

                                LMAO Splashed whites are NOT deaf as rule.

                                Wow the misinformation in this post is ASTOUNDING. Give me a few minutes to stop laughing and then I will reply

                                  This is what is believed to cause the deafness.

                                  To me, if I'd just read the refrences, and looked at the Bold Phantom horse, I'd say he looks splash or sabino, but wouldn't be able to definativly rule one out.
                                  He is most likely both.

                                    Sorry for stepping on toes.

                                    I was asking a simple question as I don't know. I don't own the filly, I'm not ever going to own the filly and if I was to own her she wouldn't be in a colored breeding program anyway as she is very well bred.

                                    I just thought if very interesting as she hasn't the usual traits that come with blue eyes.

                                    Thanks Riddle Me This for explaining things.

                                      I would have plenty of splash whites in my barn even in Warmbloods and they are all Sabinos!

                                        I would be very interested in which researcher you are talking to. The one I am talking to would never use APHA has a reference point for anything. And I am curious, which researcher has time to send you emails on here to post, but would not register to post themselves?

                                        They are wrong on so many things its laughable.

                                        Now the morgan site is one I have been referenced to by many people, and one of the best I have found, in addition to equine color.

                                        And here is a very cool examples of minimal splash (neither as deaf)
