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!

    Today, Roanne TWF, my 3 year old Rosenthal/Stedinger filly checked in foal to Elite Danish stallion Solos Landtinus. I'm really excited about this cross.

      mine aren't really sporthorses per say, but I have a preg check in the morning for two of my mares....crossing fingers!!! One is a maiden and one isn't, they are both bred to my stallion and we did live cover....whew, when they get here I'll have assisted in everything!! LOL

      I was amazed that they went into heat at the same time, what luck!

        We are pleased to announce that Zarena has given us a very nice black dot on a 17 day check! Zarena is by Le Champion and is a "PSG with an amateur" herself.She was bred to Amaretto d'Arco. Special thanks to Dr. Oakley of Deland FL who micromanaged this 17 yr. old maiden mare to a "tee" under Monica's monitoring and also to Lisa Lourie for going the extra mile to make "D'Arco" available in the midst of his competitive schedule in Wellington and before he left for Europe.

        Stamroos W (Heartbreaker x Ramiro) to be checked next week for her pregnancy with a Vegas (Voltaire x Joost) foal. Then on to the next tranche of breeding - Julia du Brio, Mandalika and, possibly Ana Bella.

              One more.

              My fingers, toes and eyeballs are crossed that the recipient hangs onto the For Compliment embryo that we just got from Wolkenstanza. It was a little small, but hopefully small won't matter. I so want to see this cross!!!!!!

                  WOOT!!! My scheme has, so far worked!!! I planned on breeding our open mares early this year and just confirmed two more in foal ! Pilar (Pointmaker x Winter Eclipse/Wallenstein) - bred by our own Rebecca Pennington of Sonesta Farm - just confirmed in foal to Edward Scissorhands d'Avalon. Pilar is STUNNING, if I do say so myself. Black with four high stockings and a blaze, this foal will be guaranteed black!

                  The second mare confirmed in foal is the Oldenburg mare, Piping Hot (Pablito x Jadzia Dax/Golf Shop Denny xx) a cute little smaller package standing 15:3 hands. She also is bred to Edward Scissorhands for a black 2013 foal. I LIKE knowing I won't get a red head next year !!!

                  4 down, two more to check in a week! Fingers crossed that my plan continues to work...well...that and NOT getting on ANY horses this year until breeding season is over and NOT breaking anything! So far, so good!

                                Black dot today for Bijou (Bruderherz/ Akzent II/ Polacca) x Tantris. Don't try this at home, but I bred her after seeing her in very strong heat, checking her cervix, calling the stallion owner to have a chat (including the fact that my vet was out of the country), driving to pick up the swim team, and then inseminating the mare myself. ZERO ultrasounds until the preg check. A bit risky, but nice when it works out!

                                  Did that at least twice But the mares were on a hormones protocol (the one on Kathy's website to delay foal heat...) Worked both time and gained almost 2 weeks! Indeed risky, and indeed lucky, but we need those lucky shots once in a while

                                          Another black dot to report!!! Lyrical (Letkiss) is in foal to Furst Fugger! One dose too! Our other mare L. Titty who was bred to Veron, she has some cysts that made it hard for the vet to see if there was a dot or not so she will be rechecked on Friday. Fingers crossed there's something there. Our mare Diorella is still in foal to Royal Prince (YIPPEE!!!), so the year is going pretty well so far. Our vet has been awesome, getting to the farm on time and doing the inseminations. I loff her!!!

                                          Haniska, that's awesome about Bijou! Gotta love it when a plan comes together so perfectly.
