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!

    Why would you want to waste your money?

    I know the fee isn't much but really, what's the point?

      Because if they are to be shown ... It's $35. Better than $200 when they are two! And $35.. That's two feed bags (maybe) worth paying if you think you MIGHT vet show the foal.

          Oh !!
          So your young horses don't sell and you'll be showing them yourself.
          Then that makes sense.

          And VA bred why is it the way to go?
          Anyone who buys your stock can rename it whatever they want and there is no requirement that they list the breeder or even the pedigree.
          If the name it came with sucks then for sure it's getting renamed.
          Cheaper to record as a new recording than to do the transfer and less paperwork.

            Why on earth would you be paying $200 to record a 2 yr old.
            That doesn't kick in till they are three.
            Confused much ??

              My mistake, I meant to type 3. Still, the price increases as they get older.

                AHS automatically takes care of the USEF recording for me.

                Now, I apologize in advance for highjacking this thread briefly, but I can't help myself.

                S A McKee (is that your real name?), I don't think I can recall a single post that you have ever made on this board that was not rude, confrontational or condescending. I wonder what makes you that way? It must not be very pleasant to go through life just waiting to pounce on others in order to belittle them. So are you Sam or Samatha or ??? McKee, and what do you do in the horse world, other than be irritating?

                I find it somewhat hilarious that your favorite pastime (next to being rude to breeders on this board) seems to be checking USEF stats on horses, breeders, etc on USEF, yet you are on this thread advocating against breeders getting their foals USEF recorded when the cost is still quite reasonable. Why is that? I am genuinely curious.

                I also wonder why "S A McKee" comes up nowhere in any google search that also mentions horses. That tells me that you don't show or own horses or that you are hiding behind a screen name and not brave enough to be the real you. Fess up.

                  There are plenty of folks who firmly believe that dear S A is Jill Burnell of Gray Fox Farms. Apparently the attitude, opinions and language are similar.

                    Oh my. Really? Why wouldn't the mods have picked that up by now?

                    And remember it is "Gray Fox" not "Grey Fox", which is legit.

                      I believe the mods looked into it but couldn't verify.There was a post about it on the Jill Burnell thread awhile ago.

                      And thanks for the reminder about GFF ! I fixed it.

                          I will speak for myself and my program. I include the life time registration in the purchase price of my foals. I put together all the paper work for the owners so that I can make sure that I am listed as breeder and that the sire and dam are listed as well. Not all buyers will take the time to include it and it is important to me to have it done. So for 35 dollars it just makes sense for me to do it. Most of ours will show on the line with their new owners so in the long rin it saes them money as well.
                          To each their own though. If you don't see the value, by all means do do it.

                            True, but I was genuinely curious to see if old Sammy would have the guts to answer my questions. I also realize that life IS too short. Just wanted to see if Sammy wanted to establish some credibility. Not happening, I guess. Question answered. Sigh...

                                    We are sending in our 5 babies tomorrow. Every youngster sold off this place has a lifetime USEF #. $35.00 is pretty darn cheap.

                                      S A McKee never posts anything useful and may be the most unpleasant person on the board that has not been banned. I hope that she gets something out of this--perhaps being nasty here makes her real life relationships run more smoothly--because the rest of us sure as hell don't get anything out of her posts.

                                      FWIW, I wish someone had registered my two year old with the USEF when she was a baby. She's three in the spring and MAN is it expensive at this point.

                                        lol I have to agree. I've been on the COTH for a very long time and S A McKee has always been a wet blanket. Some people are just happy being miserable...or happy when they can make everyone else around them miserable too I just choose to ignore it. Although, I do feel very sad for her/him. I just cannot imagine being that unhappy or miserable. Life is too short!

                                        We register our foals with USEF. As everyone else said, much cheaper to do it when it's $35. Hopefully, the new owners are happy with the names we choose, and then they don't have to spend a dime later to register with USEF. We register our Pony Hunter foals with USEF, and we're finding more and more buyers are interested in keeping the original names, along with the breeders prefix.

                                        Over the years, we have decided to keep two of our foals that we hadn't originally planned to keep. I'm glad I spent the $35 when I did and didn't have to worry about $200 for registration a few years later.

                                        At the end of the day, I guess it's my decision whether I decide to waste $35 or not! Apparently I have too much time and money on my hands.
