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!

    This is my yearling filly, Section B Welsh, by *Wedderlie Mardi Gras LOM/AOE and out of *Waxwing Curtain Call. Pictured at 11 months.

    I hope to show her this year, though we missed the first show for various reasons, and it looks like our second show is going to fall during haying. Groan....

    These are admittedly NOT great pictures of her, but you can get the idea anyway.

        Wendolyn WF (aka Lynnie) will be in for a trim in about 2 weeks, so I'll get more formal shots and a definite measure on concrete then. These are from a very informal stroll through the mare pasture last night...

        The black mare in the photo on the left is 15.3 on her tippy toes. The chestnut is 16.3 and solidly built. Lynnie was 12 months on April 24th.

          Absolutely fab! I took our yearling filly out for her first show a couple of weeks ago - FIRST show, FIRST trailer ride, she was an absolute gem and we even came home with a Supreme and a few champion and reserve ribbons


          She's definitely off the boil now though, but the next show isn't for a couple of months so I am sure she'll be back in shape for that one.

          She is pure Saddlebred, mature around 16.2hh.

            Since I saw this thread, it reminded me that I still needed to get shots of "our" girl before it got too far away from April (when she actually turned 1 y/o). So this evening we got these shots of her. She's a purebred Arabian and I expect her to mature around 14.2 hands or so, hoping for taller, but hey, we'll see!


            She's not owned by me, but I care for her and work with her so she's "mine" so to speak, just not on paper. =) 2 years from now I hope to be able to put up pictures of a foal that's actually mine!

              This is what my yearling seems to spend most of her time doing...

              Or this...she took offense to my backpack

              Purebred Arabian. She left on the day of these photos to go for some sporthorse in hand showing. She is a joy to be around. 13.2hh the last I measured her, so we'll see what we get.

                Here is Don't Wait Up NHF (Don Alfredo X Legacy) - born 5/21/11.
                I have not sticked him but he's probably 14-14.2H. This was taken last week at his first show.

                Here is DeLyra NHF (DeLaurentis X SPS Wega) - born 6/24/11.
                I've not sticked her either but she's tall...probably 14.3-15.1. This was also taken last week at her first show.

                    Not sure if this will work. Here is my yearling thoroughbred filly by Rock Hard Ten, out of a Grand Slam mare. She is 14 months in the pic and currently measures about 15.1. She is my first homebred and I love her so much.

                      After a good grooming and mane cleanup today I got a couple more pictures of Gizmo - he's just a few days shy of 14 months

                      Sucking on some water

                      I think he's patented this look LOL Because he did the same thing last year

                        JB - love, love your boy.
                        Have a Gatsby filly out of a Tb mare (very well bred for sport horse) - 11 1/2 mos: c. 15h in front, about 2" higher behind - so no photos right now, plus am not near her. Gatsby did a great job of adding height, bone and length of neck to my mare; also suspension. (Her previous foals finished 16h; this one will finish taller.) Very, very smart. Plus very athletic. She has very good, balanced, big gaits. At about 2 1/2-3 mos., she was found, very calm, on the other side of a 4' fence from her dam - no scrapes, scratches, nor hairs left on the fence -so she had to clear it cleanly).
                        Good luck with your boy!!! Are planning on keeping him and showing yourself?


                        • #32
                          Thanks cmssera! He's a keeper, always was planned that way Hunters I hope

                          Gatsby is VERY good at adding bone in all the right places for the lighter mares Gizmo is just a bit behind growth of your filly it sounds like - at 12 months he was 14.3 1/4 in front and 15 3/4 behind. he's only marginally taller each end now. All height tests, from birth height to cannon length put him finishing around 16.3 or so, which is great. I'd love to see your filly

                            When she was a suckling, her photo is on Gatsby's website as unnamed (name became Gaea - they have not updated the website). Hoping to get to see her in the next few weeks, but right now, tied down at work.

                              A friend of mine just came out and took pictures of my colt today. He was such a good boy. He let me clip his legs, bridle path, and whiskers without flinching. I couldn't be more proud of my little boy.

                              He is not going to be very big, maybe 16 or 16.1, but is built like a tank and has loads of power.

                              Anyway, here he is:
                              He is by Lingh out of on Idocus x Riverman (Redfort) mare.

                                Mine isn't so bad balance wise, she's just thin. Ugh. But when she gets moving... She reminds me that she's just at an ugly stage.

                                I should take pictures and vids of her... I should. Maybe. One day. When she fully sheds out.

                                    Alright... Danny isn't quite a year yet.... Friday though

                                    He's a doll!!! Such a sweet kid and funny! I love him!

                                    He's hopefully going to be my next eventer and so far.. he likes to jump We'll do the FEH stuff in August, so... yay!


                                    Here's the link.. it starts at one day old and finishes a few days ago.. not quite a year old. Last time I sticked him he was 14.2 at the wither and 15.1 at the butt! I think he's shot up again, but I'm waiting til Friday to check him again. I'm hoping (and expecting) he'll finish up between 16.2 and 17.

                                      Danny is beautiful! At 14.2 at a year or so, you shouldn't have any trouble meeting 16.2 or so
