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!

    Rugby Creek,
    My friend says that she's been talking to you about Kool-i. I really hope she can get him. I first saw him online and sent his link to her, but she had already beaten me!

    I don't breed, but I have my 100% FPD gelding, IO Ima Braveheart by Oaks Lyon Heart. I haven't been able to keep up on his training with my class load, but last year we got to compete at USPC nationals. I'm really hoping to have more time to ride soon.

        I have one! I love him. He's a 15.2 gelding by Dreamfeature who is by Dreamfinder.
        I've trained him in Huntseat and he's jumping and trail riding and doing a bit of showing.

        He's really smart and moves really well. I bought him a year ago as an unbroke 4 year old. I broke him myself and have done all the work on him.

                Holly,

                You should definitly bring Kool-I down. If anything it would ease my guilt at being "blinded by spots" and buying a foal when I have the exact same breed cross due next spring! Head Slap

                    I don't breed but I have an app that I absolutely adore. I trained him at the riding school I used to work at, and when they closed I had to have him for myself! He hasn't gone hugely far in his training due to being so safe for beginners, but he's done a bit of hunter/jumper and dressage. When I have more time and money I'd love to try eventing with him. He's brave and honest and has pretty nice form o/f and under saddle.

                              I actually have recently been doing research on breeding sporthorse appy's. I was talking to Virginia at JG Appaloosa's and she told me that you can only cross Appy's with QH's, Arabs, or TB's (or Appendix QH) and still have a registerable Appy.

                              So I'm a bit confused by the people on the thread who say they are breeding Appy sport horses but are crossing Appy's with warmbloods... and actually trying to breed the Appy out of the line and just keep the color.

                              Have the rules changes? Or are you just breeding warmbloods with spots and calling them Appy's when they aren't?

                                In Australia warmblood is an accepted outcross. There are many of us who feel the quarterhorse has been the downfall of the modern appaloosa and are breeding them back to the original riding type that they were. Many people realise that historically appaloosas go back to warmbloods!

                                The colour increases with sensible outcrossing by the way.

                                The halter concept has been one of the most damaging things to happen to any breed..but in particular the appaloosa. We are lucky enough to export many of our appaloosas to USA, so I guess there must be americans who arent all that happy with how things are run there.

                                    Would you mind explaining this statement please? I do not understnad how outcrossing with any breed that does not have "app" coloring, i.e. the lp gene, can "increase" the app color. The only way an app horse can pass on it;s color is thru the lp gene which allows the expression of app characteristics and color. This can be enhanced by the PATN gene, but without the lp gene no color can be expressed at all. An individual can ONLY carry the lp gene if they themselves show app color anr/or characteristics. And only three coat patterns, the snowcap, the fewspot and the rather rare solid with charcateristics and "pink" hoofs can be homozygous for lp, and therefor be 100% color producers (like my app sporthorse type, but ApHC registered stallion)

                                      No an appendix QH is a registered cross between a TB and a QH. Any other cross that is not registered cannot be called "appendix" as appendix is the name of the studbook with AQHA. AQHA onlys allows outcrossing to TB's and you cannot cross an appendix registered horse with anything but a full numbered QH (cannot cross to a TB or another appendix). However, appendix horses can be "upgraded" to regular registry, receiving a full number, upon certain race/show requirements (i.e. ROM)

                                        The rules haven't changed although there is some lobbying for them to be changed. I find no redeeming value in a "WB with spots" than I do a "QH with spots"! Neither is a true app in my book. However, the ApSHA (I guess that still exists) will basically registere anything with spots.

                                          It should have read the visual colouring. Sorry.

                                          Fewspot is homozygous...

                                          many many of what people are passing off as snowcaps thesedays are in fact false snowcaps.Quite a few only have one app parent to start with! The colour increases phenotypically (not genetically ) with outcrossing, and gives us a chance to remodel our 'goal' with a fresher genepool. I think a few generations down the track will be interesting!
