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!

    What does "IR" stand for?
    I don't know either (what "IR" stands for) but having seen Redwine at Thermal - he was stout then - to me - a type of Rotspon - heavy on top, short legs - big bodied. Not saying not a great cross for a particular mare -just reporting in

    • IR = Insulin Resistant.

      Yes, stallions have big necks/crests...I know, I have stallions.

      But his crest is fatty, looks hard and he has the telltale muffin butt.

      My stallion, Boleem developed IR when he was about 24 yrs. old. Dreadful. RW's neck looks much worse than his did. And Bo didn't get much of the fat pads elsewhere.

      Kinda good he has no access to grass. She's got a lot of hoof on him as well. Not sure that's related or paying for a farrier.

      BTW, I think the other stallion looks a little "light". Typically they are heavily muscled and I can see his hip angle a bit too easily. Too dark to see if there are ribs. He's not bad though, but he should have a nice full rump.

      • Dianehalpin...I didn't really study his feet, just that he was long.

        Rings+IR almost always equal laminitis.

        • 3Dogs...Boleem was also "stout", but not a real heavy type.

          Often it is the stout, easy keepers that develop this later in life.

          Google his earlier photos and compare the crest. His is now a massive chunk of grotesque fat where he did not have it before -- which is a big, big sign of IR. If he is not foundering, yet it's only a matter of time before he does unless she is managing it. I did. The rings may have been mild cases gone unnoticed. Who knows?

          Years ago Edgar, who posts here, I discussed the issue of IR and stallions when I was so distraught about Bo. Pilot, Secretariat and other notables he mentioned were afflicted later in life...and cost them their lives. No proof, but Edgar seemed to think they are more prone.

          • They do not look nearly as good as they did when I visited last spring. I agree that Redwine is IR looking. Very sad.

            • EEK, and from the other photos posted earlier , it looks like they are fed sweetfeed. sigh.

                as a MD I interpret this to mean they have become Type 2 diabetics. WOW - that is a sorry state of affairs

                  Yes, and where do most diabetics first begin to have problems? With circulation in the feet, horses are no different.

                    • Redwine IS too fat and it appears a lot like founder in his feet. What is interesting to me is that my Redwine filly looks to be trying to head in a similar direction. She's only getting a handful of grain now with supplements but is prettily round. I can really see some similarities, though, especially in the tiny throatlatch, in spite of the weight problem.

                          Laurie...People have talked about the MARES that apparently hoarded and foals in poor shape...but the stallions and their shape not really a topic till now!

                          • The key word here is mismanagement.

                            Regardless if they are too skinny or IR. The horses are not being taken care of properly.

                            Are they starving? No. But, being under nourished can cause growth and soundness issues in the young ones she is selling, and being overweight can also cause lameness. So this does effect future owners of these horses.

                            Bottom line is she needs to take care of all her outstanding bills, and sell the horses then get some help.

                            It is too bad all this has happened but regardless is it is a mental problem or not she needs to be responsible for her actions.

                            • I think Romantic Star looks underweight and with not conditioning.

                              Redwine looks seriously fat. There is a big difference between the look of a stallion that is "fit" from being in work and competing. I would be concerned about how much fat he has and the neck situation does give me concern about IR.

                              • Wowza! RW looks way too big! He has never looked like that, and I have seen him plenty in person. His back even looks dippy maybe because of his huge a$$ and neck. I had heard that all horses except 2 stallions had been moved, this was a few weeks ago. Funny about what Diane and Laurie say about thier fillies, because mine has a big neck too, and could easily head that direction if not managed.

                                • 3dogs...yes. Pretty much the equivalent to Type II diabetes.

                                  I've had several horses with this affliction over the years. There is no "fault" here -- it is not "caused" by the level of care. It is metabolic condition. But once they show the signs management of them is key. Tons of threads on the Horse Care forum. I've seen enough IR horses (and managed them as well) to see the more than obvious signs in RW.

                                  Illona...thanks for the good eye one other one that looks underweight, though not badly so.

                                  Looks like these guys need more astute management, for sure.

                                  Neither stallion has a sparkle in their eye. They look "removed" from feeling vibrant.

                                  • i take it Jill doesn't work her horses? It is shame that Redwine's weight isn't being managed and he isn't being exercised.

                                    • Oh, and wow... a Jill spotting in that album. IMG 1202, that's her standing next to Redwine. Redwine looks a lot worse than when I saw him a few years ago.

                                      • Interesting. I wasnt quite "getting" what you were referring to until I looked at Image 1205. Its not the fact that RW is a stallion with a typically cresty neck - but its that hard ridge of "something" that runs right up his neck that looks like a huge deposit that doesnt belong there

                                        • Those photos make me sad. Agree that neither stallion has a sparkle in his eye. Neither do they appear to be getting much exercise. And Redwine definitely looks like an IR horse - fat, cresty, and he is getting a sagging topline. He sort of reminds me of a fat pony. And the rings on his hooves would indeed make me suspect a laminitic condition.
