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!

  • Thoroughbred broodmare on craigslist - Caro descendant

    I stumbled across this, I think the mare is in KY? But a pretty cheap daughter of Cozzene who was by Caro.

    Caro needs no introduction in the sport horse world, bu this is probably one of the few mares with Caro that close up.


    She looks a lot like my Caro granddaughter.

    She's gorgeous. And Danzig has turned into one of the top lines for event horses.

    If I didn't already have too many horses that I don't ride, I'd jump on her like a duck on a Junebug.

        I saw this mare a while back. In fact, I liked her on paper so much I decided to look her up online. There was a blog started about her at some point in time. I do wonder why she has made the decision to sell her (because she sounded excited have her).


        If only $$ was never an issue...

        Oh, and more pictures here.

          Maybe she just isn't fertile.

            The ad says she had a foal this year and it sounded like she'd had others previously... Unless she wouldn't catch this year? She's super cute though, and I love her pedigree.

              Oh – though Straight Deal no less – my mare shares the same lines!

              Straight Deal also has Turn To through Hail to Reason.

              These posts are from another thread I started quite some time ago asking about my mare’s linage:

              Originally posted by pony grandma View Post

She was a Stakes Winner and raced with 99 starts back in the 60's, won $733,000 (add inflation to make mega $$ now), retired and had 10 foals!! You are NOT going to find 99 starts with 21 wins on any horses! She had to stay sound to do that.

That means the tail female line of Straight Deal is one of the most royal you can find in TB land, and Teddy is one of the best sires of the Twentieth Century. Since you've got the cross of the La Troienne line to the Hail To Reason line, it's no wonder that Straight Deal was the real deal.

                She's got a 2012, then a 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006 and 2005.

                Possible that they had troubles getting her to catch in 2009/2010, sold her on and the 2012 was just lucky, I suppose...

                  I agree she is a very nice mare both in pedigree and conformation...old type conformation...short shins, substance, balance...really like her.

                      She IS nice. I think they'll be really lucky to get what they're asking for her though in this economy unfortunately.

                        I read the blog. The blogger seems to have gotten this mare, maybe for free, in October of this year. She doesn't seem to have had much recent horse experience and the mare essentially knew nothing about being a riding horse. Perhaps the blogger was just overfaced with the mare. But if she got her for free in October and can flip her for 2,500, the blogger will be making a very good profit in only three months.

                        Still can't figure out from the blog if the writer was in KY when she got the mare, but the Craigslist ad is in Ocala. If the blogger moved to Florida, that might explain the quick flip attempt also. The blogger may have also never owned the horse and was working with her on the owner's farm in KY. And it's the original owner who is still trying to sell her from the Florida Craigslist.

                        At any rate, there is a story here.

                        Whatever it is, I LOVE this mare.

                                The mare is in Lexington. The woman is experienced but got busy with November sales as she's a bloodstock agent. She also admitted to being a weather wuss, so the mare is sitting. She thought of breeding her in 2013 but her job situation has changed, hence the sale of her.

                                    If only! I love this old-style conformation that you don't seem to see much anymore. She is beautiful!

                                    I hope she finds a good, forever home very soon!

                                        I spent all last week so anxious about a mare at FL, and then was very happy to find out that one of our own coth members has bought her.
                                        I love the looks of this mare, and her pedigree, and think it would be a terrific match.
