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!

    Madamlb - Nice to see some hairy ones! Mine are too hideous to show here. Your Don Frederico looks like he has a mane from hell - good luck getting that into some decnt plaits for the show season !! He also looks a lot taller than 15.2 - or are you a midget?


    • #82
      I'm 5'3'' so I am pretty little but he is bloody huge. I got a bit of a shock because he was a tiny, tiny foal and his mother is only 16hhl! And yep, mane from hell, I've tried somewhat to tame it but not having much luck. The babies are very fluffy but at the moment they need it. Hairy ones aren't too hideous to show, you can just pretend they are crossed with yak

        madamlb, I think your wee one will be taller than 15.2 - much taller.

          She's lovely. What a floaty trot she had as a foal!

            What a brave thread! Letting the yearlings have their own thread so that they can share in their disfunctional stage is awesome! There are some gorgeous babies and some enormous ones - Oh My!

            Here's my yearling - his first b'day is tomorrow 6/5. We just measured him at 13.3 - I know kinda on the short side of many of these youngsters, but Austin is an Arabian so he's on the big side of his breed.

                ha ... mine look like fugly little beasties next to all these gorgeous, refined, sleek young ones in their summer coats.

                I don't think the Don Fred would be over 15.2hh right now, but I'm pretty sure he's going to make 17hh. I don't want to sell him as he has a fantastic temperament and is just getting nicer and nicer as he gets older, but 17hh is way too big for me. His mum- 16hh- is my dressage horse. So we'll see. Anyone want to swap one of their gorgeous sleek angels for my fat, hairy lump?

                  I know this is an older(ish) thread but I finally got some good pics of my girls!!

                  The first is my filly that I bred last year, Johzzalyn (Jazz - Rohdiamant). Thankfully, my girl has her dam's temperament and not her sires (so far). She's 14 months here, just had her mane pulled for the first time and was such a good girl for that. And man is she getting big!

                  The second is a pony filly I bought in-utero from Daventry Farms and I couldn't be happier with her, her name is Daventry's Cover Girl aka Peaches. She's by Penrhyn Sporting Chance out of a Belshazzar mare.

                    Lovely yearlings everyone!!

                    I don't have a decent confo shot to show, but I do have a trot video of my 2011 filly. She didn't grow hardly at all over the winter so she's still quite small for her age, but she's sprouted up a couple of inches in the past couple of months and will hopefully continue to grow steadily the rest of the summer and in the fall. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcHLPIi9Z2k

                                Thank you again. He is actually Saddlebred (Spot of Gold) x Percheron (AK Schuberts Moon) a granddaughter of Blackhome Grandeur Lyn. The cross produces a happy medium of big lovely Baroque looking horses.

                                Here is a shot of the full brother from last year as a 3yr old. Sorry for the head down but I don't have a shot of him not standing funny with his head up and everyone is so hypercritical on here. http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e1...b/c0805830.jpg

                                And here is Mom who is 17.1 http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e1...b/7dc5096a.jpg

                                  Well, I'd say that particular cross is working very well! I've seen some ASB/Perch crosses before and while some have been "eh", many have been quite nice actually The full brother is quite nice, and more than just in color!

                                    Aerosmith d'Avalon (Argosy x Macy's Rainbow/Mannhattan)

                                    Since I wasn't "mobile" last year, we still have a few of our babies. We've been working on getting some updated photos and videos of the kids and Aerosmith was the first on the list. He is by Argosy and out of Macy's Rainbow/Mannhattan. Macy's full sister, Maude RF (bred by Rainbow Farm/Barb Young) was FEI Champion for her very first I-1 at Dressage in the Rockies I ridden by Grant Schneidman, owned by Julie Hess! Aerosmith is registered GOV and was a foal of distinction at his inspection.

                                    Please pardon the dings and scuffs. Our babies get to live out together and consequently, show the wear and tear of living amongst their peers <lol>. These pics were taken on Monday, August 6th. I don't think he looks too bad for literally being drug in from the pasture for a photo shoot ! Now I just have to update his web page :P. No rest for the wicked!

                                      Yes, thank you, it does seem to be a good nick and the horses are definitely more than just a neat color. I can't say enough about their sweet, uncomplicated dispositions either. The mare is really exceptional for crossbreeding which makes a huge difference.

                                        Our 2011 filly was purchased last year, and is doing very well in hand for her new owners.

                                        She's by UB40 and out of Amulet ISF, and has been champion at breed shows twice this year, with excellent comments from the judges. She's going to compete at the Rocky Mountain Series Sport Horse Breeding Championships and the Great American/ USDFBC Rocky Mountain Series Finals and RMDS Finals.

                                        I'm really proud of all of them

                                          Yes, I also meant to add that the Perch mare looks like just the right type to be crossing with a light stallion. That's the biggest key, IMHO.

                                          Great job!!!
