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!

    She's listed at $6500 in the YT video, but the CL ad says she's free due to an unsoundness issue

    Tale male to Balladier sure is interesting and rarely seen anymore.

    Also interesting to see My Charmer without Seattle Slew.

    Curious what the issue is with her.

      Wow

      Her pedigree is very good. Better on top than the bottom but the bottom isn't terrible just common culprits Norther Dancer and Mr Prospector. The excellent stuff is Whitesburg, Traffic Judge, Olden Times, Our Michael, Princequillo, Beau Pere, Private Account, Double Jay, Round Table and Royal Charger.
      Then she looks marvelous flashy pretty, with charisma, and beautiful movement. I would take her in a heart beat as a brood mare. Good Luck. PatO

            Not still active, unfortunately. Last report of mares bred submitted in 2009.

              Bump for the morning crowd - I really want someone with a good program to get her! She's flashy enough, and on CL, I really would hate for someone who's going to ignore whatever soundness issue she has and do her harm

                I'm sorely tempted but with the "other" new mare coming in 2 weeks and still getting client mares in and out for breeding, I dont want to run short on space

                I like her a lot as well and have always been a Whitesburg fan too ...

                  She is lovely -- I have a gorgeous mare by Da White Judge also, with an excellent pedigree for sport. She won 4 races (allowance) retired sound, showed and won, produced 2 babies I bred who are very successful -- beautiful, super athletes, one doing dressage, qualified for regional championships this year and one in eventing. I have a daughter that is a keeper. She scored a 52 at her ATA inspection. Someone should go get her -- super nice mare! I can't say enough good things about Pure Preppy -- although she is a diva, lol!

                      But why would you want to breed from her? She's got such a significant and obscure lameness problem that shes being given away. I genuinely don't understand why this mare would be considered breeding material?

                      I hope she does find a nice home but as a riding horse, not a broodmare.

                        Stolen Silver, watching the video, she really is a nice mare and mover. Not knowing these owner's experience w/lameness issues, her level of care/management/history or if a competent vet has seen her, I don't think I'd write her off yet as a broodie. I think she deserves a closer look into what is going on, what her history is and her treatment for it, if any.

                          to me a whole lot would depend on WHY she was unsound.

                                Oh boy... Unsound AND a cribber?

                                Not my definition of "must breed"...

                                She is very nice, I'll give you that. But... sheesh, there are tons of good mares looking for homes that are as nice or nicer and without the potential issues...

                                  It would depend on why she's unsound. I have two unsound for riding broodmares. I know what the injury is for each...one was damage done from an infection and the other was from a collision accident. Neither are from genetic issues or conformation ones.

                                  Can't see the video so can't judge the mare but it is an interesting pedigree...up top is full of good moving horses with substance. So I would expect her to have more bone and good movement.

                                    Simply reading "she cribs" doesn't mean a lot. There are sooooo many horses who are unhappy in their environment they crib, but when put into a situation they love, it disappears. Or they only crib when in a stall, but are completely happy and crib-free when living out.

                                    I do realize that "unsound" and "cribs" are huge turnoffs for some folks, even those only looking at broodmares.

                                    But those 2 words are ALL that anyone has to go by in this ad. If I were in the market for a horse like this - FREE mare who is flashy, moves pretty darn nicely, and apparently comes from some pretty nice sporthorse lines, I sure as heck would be investigating her more, including vet reports, how she's current living, etc.

                                    I just think it's a bit short-sighted to dismiss a seemingly very nice mare for something you only have 2 words to go by So many people are bemoaning how we're letting good TB sporthorse lines go by the wayside, how we need more of them, and sometimes you have to work a little hard to get some of that back

                                        Nice mare

                                        She moves very nice for a purebred TB and has a very interesting pedigree. She looks to be a pretty substantial mare as well. I think she is worth at least looking into a bit further. If I didn't already have five mares, I'd be interested. She's one of the nicer TB mares I've seen.
