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!

    I won a 50% off breeding to any stallion at Dreamscape Farm, so I am breeding my EE Don Frederico/Warkant mare to Rubinus. I'm really excited about this cross.

      I'm breeding my loan mare (De Niro x full sister to Piccolino, WEG gold medallist) to Silvermoon. I'm very excited about that. She's just been PGed and should be AIed next week.

      My other mare (ID x TB) is expecting her current foal any minute. She's the size of a small bungalow and dripping milk. Once I've seen what she has to a different stallion to her previous two by Silvermoon I'll make a final choice between Cendy (Consul (Danish Warmblood by Churchill) x Come Back II x Mago) or De Niro or Caretino Glory (Cheenook x Glorieux) or possibly possibly risk frozen semen on an older mare and try one last time with Silvermoon.

        Always fun to see what we plan for the mares and where they lead us by the end of breeding season.

        Papillon (Ariadus-Cheenook) confirmed in foal to Amaretto D'Arco with a heartbeat.

        Melody Van Sint Maarten (Elton-Nimmerdor-Ladalco) bred to Amaretto D'Arco. Counting days.

        Neah Bay (Final Pool xx-And Behold xx) to Classe.

        Bold Starlet (Bold Executive xx-Akureyri xx) to Far West early next week. We bought this mare with Far West in mind so I'm excited to see the result.

        Select Dancer (Well Selected xx-Fire Dancer xx). Still up in the air since she doesn't foal until June but considering Alligator Fontaine (double up on mare Spotted Beauty), Balou du Rouet or Crespo.

        Pik's Pandora and Cayah Bay get the year off after they foal.

          S Lesarra My beloved 3yo. By Bur-Dal Lord Solomon, out of my Arabian mare, will go to Clanfair Signature, as soon as she will cooperate and come into heat!

          And I will probably rebreed the dam of the above filly for another full sibling, the mare had a STUNNING filly a couple weeks ago, and I just must have another

          Can't wait to see all these crosses!

              Well, with the caveat that my plans usually change /solidify at the 11th hour, the stallions I am using this year include (most likely):
              Sir Gregory
              Romanov or Sir Donnerhall
              Benetton Dream
              Diamond Hit

                  I have made a decision to breed one mare to Freestyle. She had a lovely colt by him who is now showing a lot of talent as a five y.o. in dressage. For my other mare I'm using either Comic Hilltop or Denario; I'm still not sure about that one.

                      I really love this colt. I know we are taking a chance before he is approved but he is one of my favorites.

                        I thought Caritas was coming to live with me??? But, I can take CaChing in her place too. <VEG>

                        I think you are a good judge of whats a good risk Barbara.

                        I am jealous so many know what they are doing. I wish I did!!

                        However, I am strongly considering going back to Parco with my Goodtimes mare. If I have to wait 5 more years for another filly like her, its worth the wait.

                        I am also quite pleased with my Farscape/Rohdiamant baby, that could be a do over too.

                              Barnhartvale Belle (Alybro xx x feu d'enfer xx) is due in a few weeks with a Balta'Czar foal and will be bred to Livello

                              New girl Zinzi (Clinton x Nimmerdor) will stay open this year... her Nabab de Reve foal is due in July so I'd like to move her up next year.
                              (I'm not sad about this.. I'm pretty excited to ride and show her a little bit!)

                              .. but I'm looking at doing an ET with her next year as well and looking at Numero Uno and ???

                                Successfully flushed an embryo last week from my first breeding to Concerto Grosso. Keeping fingers crossed that it implants successfully and we are breeding back to him again next week.

                                  Devon to Furst Nymphenburg (Florencio/Ne Niro)

                                    Erotika (Cor de la Bryere/Rigoletto), stamm 2004:

                                    1st ET to Casiro (Cassini/Landgraf)
                                    2nd ET not yet decided but have narrowed it down to Numero Uno, Cornet Obolensky, Diamant de Semilly, or Berlin

                                    She had 3 follicles last cycle, 2 of which matured, so am hoping for a couple of embryos from at least one of the breedings. Have the option of freezing if there are not enough recips.

                                    Larosa Z (Louis/Lavado/Silvester), stamm 8769, likely to Quinar although I haven't done much research yet as she is on the back burner until the ET's are done.

                                      I wasn't talking about you taking a chance......I was saying you were too smart for putting the two together. LOL

                                      I've seen Appeal come up thru a long stamm of horses and I know Caritas pretty good as well.....could be a match made in heaven !

                                          I'm jealous of everyone that is breeding already! Things always seem to change, but tentative plans are:

                                          Nikki (Voltaire/Quidam/Galoubet) - probably one cycle with Diamant de Semilly, if that doesn't work, I'll think about a frozen Capitol son or a fresh semen backup

                                          June (Calato/Lacapo/Carneval) - back to Quinar, but she isn't due for another 4 or 5 weeks

                                          Pauletta (Calido/Corrado/Moltke) - Contefino, but she also has a few weeks before she foals.

                                          Good luck to everyone!
