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!

  • New to COTH :D Connemara breeder here :)

    Good day!

    Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself to fellow breeders! I am new to the COTH board (lurked for a little bit) and finally decided to join!

    I live in Muskoka, Ontario and am a small breeder of Connemara ponies (as well as an off farm job that pays for all that!). I stand my Sr stallion Tintagels Tibyl (by Hohnhorst Brannigan out of Tintagels Scoth) and have a Jr stallion I recently imorted, Blue Ridge Patrick Henry by Moxley Duncan out of Hayselden Persephone.

    Looking forward to learning more and reading about other folks breeding programs etc.

    Cheers!

    Hi Janet and welcome! We have a great group of Connemara breeders and fans here on the SHB forum.

    I am an ID breeder but have in the past owned some Connemara crosses and an adorable purebred gelding by Moxley Duncan (love him!). Nature willing I will be welcoming a Connemara x ID foal next year.

    Best wishes,

          Waterwitch - I love the IDs too I have an ID mare at the moment Harkaway Bunny Herself as well as an ID/ConnieX yearling who is an utter dote! Also have a 17.3hh ID gelding leased out (permanently I think) to a wonderful lady who adored him - and is fine with his size!.

          Pics (if you would like to peek) are on my website

          I would post some here, but am at work and this computer is about as useful as a paperweight.

          Thanks all!

            Welcome! I love Muskoka AND Connemaras!

            We had a cottage in Muskoka when I was growing up, and it was a wonderfully happy time!
            I don't have a Connemara (yet), although I did ship semen to one last week! - does that count at all?

              Small world! I used to own her half brother Harkaway Lionhawk. I am expecting a purebred foal by him any day now. I was wondering what happened to Bunny. Glad she has found a permanent home. Are you breeding her?

                Fred - thanks for the welcome... I think you know me on other boards as "Aricia" though. One day you will get a Connemara if I have to GIVE one to you. EVERYONE needs a Connie in their life

                I am currently leasing her on a breeding lease, but as of yet, my stallion is not overly interested in her. :S She is 16.2-3, he is a bit over 14hh, so not sure if that has anything to do with it (my teaser mini is aflame with lust, but he doesn't even readh her hocks ) SO, if he takes an interest in her eventually I would like to see what she would throw. That front left foot of hers makes me want to not take a chance on an outside stallion though in case she passes it along.
                At least with my own lad it would just be vet costs and live cover. Less risk financially should the baby have a slightly crooked foot too. Shame really, but we shall see what happens. She is certainly a sweetie pie and I am going to clamber up on her at some point as I was told she has been schooled to about 2nd level at any rate

                        Thank You (grin)
                        There are quite a few Connemara Breeders and Enthusiasts as well as LOTS of pony breeders of all sorts here. Hopefully some more will check in here. Some are focusing more on the purebreds others partbreds and some a bit of both.


                        This year we are doing a couple of partbreds out of related TBs (one by Pleasant Tap the other by Cherokee Colony--they are sister out of the same mare). The are different types--one very leggy and tall (17.2) and the other more moderate (16.2) and of slightly heavier body type. It will be interesting to see what we get. The last is a purebred from our Premium Mare Glenormiston Amelia---this will be a full sibling to my R. Celtic Tiger who is now out in Montana living the good life (hopefully going eventing).

                            Welcome. There are not just breeders here but fans as well. I just sold my purebred since she decided that she wanted to be a hunter pony and have a kid of her own, but she was definitely one of the most amazing equines I have ever owned or ridden. I thought I was going to go back to horses, but really think I just need to find a bigger purebred or partbred. I actually thought I didn't like them until I owned one, now I am their biggest fan.

                              I just started riding a half-bred that I bred (she is 3) and I am SO in love. She has the movement of the trakehner and the brain of the connemara.....and she is 15.2. Perfection for me!

                                I board where your Duncan Baby was born and he has a wonderful personality. He would leave Persephone and come to the fence for attention. Beautiful boy.
                                We have a 6 yo Connemara/Hanoverian mare (unrelated to your guys) and she is loyal, intelligent and a great partner for my husband. I think she would die for him. And always knows where her feet are. She can walk across a creek on the stepping stones put there for people. It's uncanny.

                                  Stacie thats really neat---My husband also rides a homebred Connemara x Hanoverian who is wonderfully kind and intelligent. My husband adores his 'big' pony and they have enjoyed much success together. Would love to see the stepping stone trick---that sounds really neat, what a cool horse!

                                    Nice to "meet" you all!

                                    Pcwertb- our farm here has the same name as yours! Black Dog Farm! When I was debating names for the Connemara part, I kind of assumed I would just call it Black Dog Farm connemaras... Then I googled it

                                    Funny you guys have Hanoverian/Connie crosses! I am likely breeding my oversize mare to White Star this year He is my friends horse and he looks like he would compliment her well.

                                    Looking forward to getting onto this board more

                                        Hey FI! Nice to see you too Yes, still doing rescue work. Picked up a mate yesterday actually whose owner had passed away and willed the mare to the rescue to find a new home. Lovely mare, but has never been off her property in the 10 years of her life. To say she is stressed would be a massive understatement.
