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!

    I also read people who have contracts for breedings to this stallion wondering why they were not informed about the new location/sale.
    yes I'm sorry I am having a tantrum. I feel like I have been very good a quoting the original posters so not sure why there is a question of what I take issue with.

    Between isse and true colors they inferred that Rising Star might not be capable of handling the stallion and that it might hurt her reputation. I do not believe these things are helpful in getting the stallion to a good place. Tantrum ended

        • As for the weather, it's common to have winds at 20 to 30 mph, and up, so it's not always temperate, as implied, it can get down right nasty, during a storm. Shelters with wind protection are a must, during the winter.

          • I have stayed off this thread, but will say that I contacted Ronda yesterday to make sure she was aware that she had been mentioned on this thread. So, yes, she is aware (and already was). I do not know any details nor do I know if she has purchased RS or not.

            What I do know is that Ronda is in FL with her young stallions to show and that she is a very smart lady (she has a Ph.D. in a science field..don't recall what right now). I am sure that there is much going on behind the scenes and that she is smart enough to stay silent on the internet regarding this situation.

            I have known her, both from COTH and IRL, for a number of years and have found her to be ethical, intelligent, and loves her horses and takes very good care of them.

            I am glad that the court has sided with MHS. Unbelievable how bad the "new" property looks in just a couple of months. I hope that there is some resolution before the mares start foaling.

              • Ronda updated her FB page within the last few minutes, too.

                Happy for the answer, and happy he'll be in a place that cares for him (and ALL of their horses)!

                  I read nothing bashing at all about her explanations.
                  I never said LaurieP ever criticized Rising Star. The posts I quoted were from isse and true colours.

                  • Yes, Ronda just updated her FB page and here is her official statement:

                    The big news that I referred to on December 18th was the purchase of Romantic Star. On December 19th the vet came out to pull blood for coggins, do paperwork for the transport health certificate and administer a rabies shot. Shipping through Brook Ledge Transportation was arranged with pick-up scheduled for December 28. On December 26th, Romantic Star was injured in a fight with another stallion. Marin County Humane Society seized the stallion. Since that date, I have not had any information from Animal Control regarding his condition. I have been unable to make any updates because I do not have information. Once I have more information, I will be making updates to my Facebook page. Barring any medical complications, I intend to honor all outstanding breeding contracts to Romantic Star. Mare owners are free to contact me either by phone or email. ronda@risingstarfarm.net or 512-751-2390.

                      • Glad to know he will have landed well when this is all done. I feel for her that she might have a huge vet bill to show for it.

                        Comment


                        • Glad to know there are better days ahead for RS... hopefully there will be for ALL the other horses too.

                            Okay, I'll throw you a bone! I hate to throw isse under the bus as I find her posts intelligent and thoughtful. But I'm not sure where her comment about quarantine prior to shipping came from. All we know regarding Romantic Star is that he was sold to Rising Star prior to his seizure on the 27th. And, from Rising Star's Facebook page in mid December they were anticipating a new stallion, but still had details to work out before it was final. We don't know if the Facebook page was referencing Romantic Star or a someone else (and it's none of our business). So it is unfair for anyone to assume that they already had shipping plans for him that did or did not include safety precautions and quarantines... Or did I miss some posts and we have more info? (ETA, okay, now we know more)

                            true colors and anyone else speculating and considering implications of a sale do not imply anything about a farm's ability to care for a horse. Speculating and considering possibilities is the backbone of these threads. And for what it's worth, all the publicity surrounding this, along with the excellent farm that Rising Star seems to be (I don't personally know them), I think it will likely be good for business. You know the old saying, "there's no such thing as bad publicity."

                              Hmm, I wonder where they will foal....I didn't see a barn or foaling stalls. It appears the first foal is due 3/2/13. I also only saw 4 bales of hay in the photos for that many horses.

                              I looked at Rising Stars website...nice place! Romantic Star will finally be back in the kind of facility he should be in. I hope he gets through this ok, as well as all the other horses.

                              • I love how the tried and true crazies have jumped on Ronda at the mere hint that she might have purchased a stallion in trouble. A stallion that all of the hand wringers have said needs to be protected, a new home and a better life... If Ronda has stepped up and done that then GOOD FOR HER!!!

                                Also good for her in not getting involved in muck flinging that has happened here. SHE IS NOT a bad stallion owner or horder --just look at the beautiful condition her horses and farm are in, her wonderful reputation as a stallion owner/businesswoman and the care she takes in selecting horses for her program.

                                Laurie--I could not agree with your statement more.

She has been a well respected breeder and stallion owner for a number of years. If RS is truly going to end up with her, it is a good thing. None of us know why she is doing what she is doing. Let it play out. There may be a reason.

                                And as DMK pointed out to the super sleuths of CoTH--you should really learn the difference between Rising Phoenix and Rising Star Farm. So much crazy on one thread.

                                  thanks for the bone I will never believe that a SO speculating on another farm who is trying to get a stallion out of a bad situation is productive or reflects well on that SO. But, I have had enough people PM me to know that others feel that way so I won't mention that again.

                                  sorry but I do think the "there's no such thing as bad publicity" does not always apply in the horse world as I don't think JB's business is growing from this?

                                  but again, appreciate the bone

                                  • Well I for one am very pleased that Romantic Star will be heading off to Ronda's farm in Georgia once he's recovered. There he will have the proper care and attention he has been lacking in recent years. He's a beautiful stallion and I've only ever heard good reports of him which is why I bred him to two of my mares a couple of years ago. I have never regretted for a moment breeding to Romantic Star as both youngsters are truly lovely and have the most delightful temperaments. Romantic Star will make his come-back at Ronda's, of that I'm sure

                                      Agreed! I've actually never met Rhonda, even though she is my Great Aunt by marriage. I do know that her horses all get the best of care. and she truly loves each and every one of them.

                                        Okay: "no such thing as bad publicity" if you have the quality and product that you claim to have.

                                        All this publicity is sending people to GFF's website, articles, and facebook. If she had the beautiful facility and high standards of care that Rising Star appears to have (again, I don't personally know the farm, going off other people's testimony) then this would be good publicity. But of course, if that was the case, then none of these articles, etc. would be out there in the first place.

                                        It will be good for Rising Star Farm. Her website and facebook are going to be flooded with thousands of hits. If she runs the operation people say she does, then she will gain clientele.
