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!

  • Update: New Photos 12/12 - 3 Connemara weanlings coming from Ireland!

    Very happy to announce that we have purchased three Connemara weanlings from Ireland, they will be here in September!

    All three have top jumping and performance lines.

    TBS Declan Pondi (Dexter Leam Pondi x Dandy Sparrow x Ashfield Bobby Sparrow). Dun (buckskin) to go grey colt. Declan's sire, Dexter Leam Pondi is a top Grade A show jumping pony. He has gone to numerous championships, and has many offspring that are Grade A as well.

    Maudlin's Miss America (Cheeky Bobby Sparrow x Moytura Blaithin x Ashfield Festy). Grey filly. This filly's pedigree is full of Grade A show jumping ponies.

    Ruby King Sparrow (Glencarrig Knight (Janus x Coosheen Breeze) x Sienna Dusky Sparrow). Grey from bay colt. His sire, grandsire, and granddam have all won on the line. His paternal granddam has produced numerous Class 1 stallions. His maternal side is full of performance ponies.

    We are very excited about these three foals, we will keep you posted when they arrive!

                Yes, very! I'm thrilled that she's learning how to freeze, and hope that she'll start getting some of the Irish to freeze their stallions. I really want to have her send some frozen over on her stallion, Killaloe Buachaill Mor, he's something special!

                    I'm sure you'll find one when you go next year...and maybe I can stick another in a box and send it over with yours! Start contacting folks that stand nice dun stallions that you like, have them keep tabs on any cremello or perlino foals. Hopefully you can nab a nice colt before he's gelded!

                      Speaking of Dun's, the guy that owns Gwenic de Goariva is really nice to talk to and love his stallion. I do know of a dun out of a Westside Mirah mare. Only 2 now. The mare also had a bay filly foal this year by the same stallion. I do not own any of these. I break most of the ponies for the guy that owns them.

                            <smile>..Yup...that's part of the plan when we go over in September. We'll be working with her on several things, freezing being one of them. Her boy is definitely one worth watching!

                              fwiw I looked for 6 months straight for a larger bodied Connemara here in the US that was 3+ and ready to go, couldn't even find one. The couple I did find were very expensive, and no one out of state would/could provide me with video.

                              It's a weird market for sure.

                                  I feel like two of the first things we lose in the breed is big body/chest/depth and bone. We have a lot of ponies here with a lot of the TB behind them (Little Heaven and Winte), and I think that often comes out. I saw a lot of BIG ponies, that were still pony height, in Ireland. I hope all three that we bring over will be great contributors of proper Connemara characteristics, as well as great performers!

                                      I have 14.2HH ponies that look like mac trucks standing next to other US bred Connemaras--and all are well within the International Breed Standard for height (148cms). What this country truly lacks is a quality mare base (which places like Denmark/Sweden/Ireland and the UK have in Spades)--we have an over abundance of under qualified colt/stallion prospects (nearly every breeder has one or more standing in the back yard) and not enough high quality broodmares. That being said I have not found that the foundation (limb quality of most imported ponies) to be outstanding--many I have seen in person are not as good as some of the TB US bred lines--what were your thoughts on this while looking?

                                        I am happy you found your lovely girl, but I know of several really nice, larger bodied ponies that are mostly of imported blood....

                                        So they are out there....

                                        now videos? lol!

                                        congrats to the OP on the ponies!
