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 had a Connemara x TB as a teen - her ability was waaaay out of my league. I jumped her regularly over 4'6. Her only fault was a visceral hatred of jumping water. I bet you'll get the horse of your dreams!

      out of curiosity - where are you getting Silver Shadow semen?

      and just to play along: my Wolkentanz I mare is in foal to Weser Ems Manchester City for a 2013 foal, - I have not yet decided what i will do with her for 2013 - a lot depends on the foal to come....

      but my dream breeding is to put her to the super Connemara Rory O'Sullivan.... I am madly in love with him and dream of getting a baby from him and my mare.... so we will see....

        Molly Malone - I adored my first Connie/TB and can't wait to see what this one brings, if all works out!

        mbm - A good friend in Ireland is in turn good friends with the gentleman that owned Silver Shadow before he went to Italy, and is working very hard to find out whether the semen that is still in Ireland can come over here. My fingers, toes and eyes are all crossed that it might work out! He also thought he might have had a line on some from Westside Mirah, but said that semen is unfortunately no good anymore, as it's quite old and had maybe been though some storage troubles. I think you and I exchanged a few PM's when I was first dithering over whether or not to try breeding my mare to a Connie - thank you for all your advice at that time!

              Silver Creek- Have you had any luck before with the Cornet Obolensky semen? I have been told it's really terrible and no pregnancies from the frozen? I looked into his son Cristallo I and was told the same thing I would love to use either of these boys if frozen improves.

                  Yep, that is my reason for the question marks. Need to do some research before it is set in stone, especially for almost $2000 a dose. If not, its back to the drawing board.

                    Let me know if his semen has drastically improved now that he is retired- love him, but heard 0 frozen pregnancies here and my euro peeps say fresh only (or I can buy one of their mares all ready pregnant - hahaha).

                        I just noticed that Silvermoon is now stationed in Germany. I will have to look at him for my mare over there.

                          You and I have similar tastes! I'm expecting a baloubet du rouet (himself!!) out of my darco/voltaire mare for 2013 and am considering Quidam du Revel for her next year . so I figure you'd have an opinion on Cruising for a Heraldik xx/Ferro mare (she's dead quiet and rideable). I could also do Hickstead for her, like Tom Reed's ekstein x herka (sister of heraldik) successes. I'd really like a cruising, however, but don't wanna breed a monster.

                            Lucky you having a Heraldik mare - I am sure there will be many perfect prospective husbands for her.

                              cruising is desparately hard to find as is a heraldik mare. slim chance at both for 2014. the other studs will have to wait for a chance at heraldik dtr.

                              I fugured you were a fan of the proposed cross as you thought of MM for your cruising dtr...

                                Far from set in stone and it looks like all my mares need fresh this year. However, so far, the plans are:

                                Erotika (Cor de la Bryere/Rigoletto) to Cancara (Cassini/Corofino)

                                Caritas N (Calido/Alcatraz) to Dakota VDL (Casall/Contender)

                                Larosa Z (Louis/Lavado) to Quinar (Quidam de Revel/Aloube). I like Carracci (Caretino/Grundyman) for her too.

                                I'd also like to use Capone (Contender/Ladalco)!

                                  I'm awaiting 2 Capone 1's this spring. Did you see that he's in the BWP-NA stallion service auction? I got service in 2009 from that auction, worth bidding...

                                    What mares did you breed to him, mareslave? I've seen him numerous times in the flesh and really respect his character, ability, and super motherline. Corrine seems great to deal with as well.

                                        I have a Capone I due this spring too! I have already done this cross before and have an amazing 4 year old filly by him. She is outstanding, and supposedly I am getting a colt version of her if everything goes well. Mama is by Idocus out of a Riverman (Redfort) mare.

                                        I am hopefully going to be breeding my mare to Zirocco Blue in the spring.
