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!

  • Interesting Thoroughbred Pedigree

    For all of you who like to study TB pedigrees, I have one you should check out. I found it years ago in a sales catalog from Tattersalls. The mares name is Winloc's Millie. I can't wait to read the responses.

        So, curiously, what do YOU find interesting about the pedigree?

          I find it interesting that someone would breed a TB mare to her own sire. Around here people don't do that and since Mr Prospector isn't a herd stallion, it was a planned breeding. I don't know, it's interesting to me.

            The inbreeding isn't limited to Mr. P. Northern Dancer is by a Native Dancer daughter, and Native Dancer's grandsire is Unbreakable. So the only true stallion line that doesn't go back to Unbreakable in the whole pedigree is My Babu.

            I wonder if any of her produce bred on and who they used. If I wonder hard enough, I might just look it up

                8 winners from that mare. I think 100 percent winners. Unbelievable. It makes one wonder if there other consolidated Mr. P. bloodlines out there and if they did as well.

                  It does make for an interesting pedigree page. This is a link to a 2010 pedigree of one her daughters. The subject horse is the second dam. It is kind of strange to see the same sire for the 2nd and 3rd dams. It would make me do a double take if I was reading a catalogue page and would have to check further to see if it was a misprint. There have been a few very good stakes winners on a very similar cross. Contrary to popular belief close inbreeding does not result in a mutant. Humans or animals. Though you stand just as good a chance to double up on the “negative” genes as you do on the “good” ones. And Mr. P had soundness issues and tended to pass on his knees.

                    Very interesting. Seth Hancock always was very protective of not over using Mr. P. in pedigrees. We got turned down twice. Once for a foal that would have resulted in a 2 x 4 to Mr. P, and another time for a 3 x 3 to him. [Later, he did allow such close inbreeding, but Winloc's Millie was a 1993 foal, so she was born during Mr. P's primo years.]

                    Especially considering that Our Millie was a failure on the racetrack (2 starts, 1 3rd, $2700). Weird that Seth would allow that mare to be bred to her own daddy.

                    ETA: I had forgotten that we were trying to get a farm season which Seth had control over. WM's breeder very probably had a shareholder season.

                      The breeder was going for a specific cross, I think, although Mr. Prospector isn't exactly the focus of the theory.

                      You'll notice in the 4th position in the pedigree, on the bottom line is Pandora by Unbreakable and on the top side is Polynesian by Unbreakable [Polynesian being best known as the sire of Native Dancer.] He also gets to Native Dancer himself via a good daughter on the bottom (Natalma, dam of Northern Dancer) & via a good son (Raise A Native, Mr. Prospector's sire) on the top [and coincidentally, on the bottom].

                      If you look at the pedigree of this mare's daughter, Winloc's Glory Days ($155,260 earnings, 19 starts, 3-4-4 record), you will see on the top side Northern Dancer through a son & on the bottom, Northern Dancer through a daughter. Winloc's Glory Days was bred by the same person who bred her dam, so it looks like he has a specific theory about getting to superior runners via sex-balanced breeding stock on opposite sides of the pedigree & within the 1st five generations (it is one of many TB breeding theories out there.)

                      That he needed to breed that closely to Mr. Prospector in the 1st mare's case might actually be beside the point, in his mind - just a way to get to the daughters of Unbreakable, Native Dancer & Northern Dancer to complement those sire's sons on the other side of the pedigree.

                        They may have been winners but they didn't win much.

                        I can't help but wonder if someone took a wrong turn with that mare out of the barn.
