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!

    Everyone's yearlings look wonderful! My guy is just a year now (was a Friday the 13th baby last May), and still looks very immature. He was so fancy as a foal and still has a real presence to him, but is smallish and going through an awkward stage. Hoping I can get some good pictures of him soon - looks like he is starting to blossom again. My 2 year old on the other hand looks great!

      The colt we bred Ed Venture by Escapade is doing very well his first year showing in hand. He just won his HB yearling class at The Blue Rock horse show/Swan Lake. His new owner and trainer are doing a great job with him. Waiting for the pictures from his last show. Here are some from a couple months ago. I am such a proud mommy

        My yearling is rather Yakling-ish so is hiding out behind the barn. She officially turned one this past Saturday. She measures just a hair under 15 hh.

            My yearling (3/4 Connemara x 1/4 TB) is 13.3 at the wither, and 14 hd behind; expecting her to mature 15.2-15.3ish.

            Here is her page: http://www.fadetogreyfarm.com/mares/...celtic_sparrow

            The first two pics were taken on her first birthday (03/28). Be sure to check out her yearling video She shows off her mad skills at being ponied out on the trail!

              This is my 2011 baby, Oliver. He turned 1 on Sunday.
              He is out of my TB mare and by Catherston Dazzler (British sport horse)
              I have yet to stick him, but Im guessing he is right around 14hh (which I think is small!! but mom and dad are both 16.1+)

              Here he is the day before his 1st Bday:http://s1169.photobucket.com/albums/...nt=oliver2.jpg

              This is with his awkward winter coat ~9 months:

              And finally, when he was just shy of 6 months, and looking drool-worthy!

              I am enjoying his baby days, but I cannot WAIT to ride him!

                Unlike most of the country, we had a COLD and rather wet winter- so mine are still shedding the last bits of winter woolly-ness!

                I had 2 fillies born last year on the same day, just 25 minutes apart! I can't believe how tall they are- "Deci" by Ideal is already over 15h and Blessing by Bugatti is 14.3, both are out of 16.1 h mares. Since I am only 5'4" I happen to like 16.1 hands just fine, thank you ;-) Oh well, I will have to get used to starting tall babies next year, since my 2 year old is going to be 16.3+

                Photos as soon as we are silky and shiny =)

                  This is our Galan-Falkland colt from last year. The vid was done end of April before he was taken to his summer field.


                  And here are some more: The first two popping up are Romanov-Sandro Hit and Romanov-Hohenstein (both darkbay). The pony yearling (small chocolate dun) is Talponciau Cartier
                  Then the two chestnuts are Fürst Piccolo-Belissimo M (stripe and 4 whites) and Gribaldi - Brentano (the Trakehner one, not the Hanoverian Bolero one). The others are 2yo's by Sir Gregory-Rubinstein (blackbay w/ star and snip) Florencio (bay) and Wallstreet (bay w/socks). And the Welshies are Skellorn Blanc de Blancs (3yo Palo gelding o/o Skellorn Barbie Doll) and Laithehill Quince 3yo grey gelding by Laithehill Oberon.

                    I'll play too!

                    Here is my 2011 Ironman filly: IronRose (her barn name is Clue as her mom is Mystery)

                    Butt high! She is 15.1 at 14 months

                              Is there a website that list the show entries? The colt we bred Ed Venture will be there in the yearling colts class.

                                Yearling filly "Takenoko" by Bonaparte AA (international show jumper), out of Top Ten by El Greco TSF (international eventer) - pure TB dam line is doing very well, moves very well, still, despite butt-high"ness" and all associated yearling features. We put a tiny little pole in front of her the other day, and this is how she reacted:

                                    My yealing Llama x goat is doing ok...she went through an absolute HIDEOUS stage where I wasn't even looking at her...just toss grain at her and run grab the eye bleach. Went through a huge growth spurt too and started looking like a rescue case.
                                    She's looking marginally better now at 13 months.

                                    In other news...ever since she was tiny she's enjoyed popping over jumps for fun...gave us all (including the farrier) a heart attack when she popped over the 3'6" ramped oxer...backwards. She actually had pretty decent form...knees up and tight, if a bit flat due to the full out gallop headed in.

                                    Of course...the best thing is she's an absolute love bug, complete snuggler which did not come from her dam. Although that affection does not extend to chickens

                                    She's by Banderas o/o a TB mare. Last weekend she was 14.2 1/2"....thinking something in the 16.1 range (which I was hoping for), dam is only 16.0, sire is 16.2.

                                    I was hoping to get her to some small in hand classes this year...but she needs to be not quite so fugly.

                                        Thank you! Yes I picked him up there. He came with Moelview Charm, Talponciau Cartier and Fidra Goldfinger.
                                        Quince will need another year before he can come under saddle so he's hanging out with his buddies only. He knows how to lunge and he has been girthed a few times, that'll be it for this year.
                                        Will you go to F.O. this year too? We're over for the RW but I don't think they hold a sale for it anymore do they?

                                          One of our yearlings, Grenache S by Chello III VDL out of our -niki linebred mare, Ultra-niki, is still tied for first place in the Nation in the Young Horse Series and has joined his owner in CA. No Finals for him!

                                          A second yearling is now owned by our trainer. That is Kallanica S out of Kaiserin by the GP Holsteiner stallion Callaway that Augustin Walsh has purchased. We hear that she is pushy at feeding time so her life with an accomplished trainer and in a mixed herd may be just the thing! She waxes between chunky and elegant with the seasons.

                                          The filly that we have retained, Cantanita S by Canturo out of our own Ahsianita m2s ( out of the same dam as Wang Chung m2s now with Eric Lamaze) also qualified for the Finals of the Young Horse Show, but will be sitting it out this year as we prepare her Auntie, Ultra-niki who also qualified for the Finals, to make the trek to Wellington. Cantanita has consistently been tall and very harmonious in her conformation, but with the typical Canturo head that prompted the judge to say," Could have a more feminine expression!" We will look forward to taking her to the YHS Qualifier in Ocala in March when we can put her through the jump chute. She has the makings of a real competition mount in the right hands- assertive, curious,brave and unbelievable naughty like her dam! Our plan is to develop her and try to place her in a competitive setting where she can fulfill the potential of her pedigree. Or keep her for our broodmare band- she brings the added power of Canturo to the natural athleticism of her dam and should transmit said qualities to her offspring.

                                          The fourth filly, Gaijin S by Olympic Quintus out of the Ekstein x Cruising mare Bijin m2s, will be growing up in Europe and attending the keuring there as a three yr. old. Plans are in the process of being finalized. There are pros and cons to having horses in Europe, not the least of the cons being the paucity of photos! A trip across the pond is a definite "must" in the near future.

                                          The Crown Affair filly, Sakura Hill La Czaritza out of Sakura Hill Czola, is tall and elegant as always and is maturing in the hands of her owner.
