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!

  • Donate to Leg-Up Equestrian Assistance- help Marin Humane Society

    I am starting a separate thread so that this does not get lost in the original Jill Burnell/Gray Fox Farm thread. I have to say that I have been blown away with how our breeding community has come together to not only help fellow breeders who were wronged, but to help make sure there is funding for Marin County Humane Society, who in less than a couple of months time, got the ball rolling to help these horses. Something that the previous county wouldn't or couldn't do. Right now we are compiling a list of breedings, items and services that can be donated and auctioned off.

    Jos is in the process of setting up an auction page so that others can donate whatever they have available or wish to donate. We have structured the page to say that the funds will be used for care, seizure, legal fees, etc. I know that it can sometimes be difficult to earmark funds specifically for some organizations. If it can go to legal, all the better. But if not, just being able to help out the horses and get things moving in the right direction, it's all good. And besides...if it all falls to pieces, there are certainly other causes that can be supported through Leg-Up, yes? . There's always a place or a person who will need help...wish it weren't the case, but unfortunately, life isn't always easy.

    If you are a stallion owner who is interested in donating a breeding to your stallion to the Leg-Up Equestrian Assistance to be auction off, those funds will then be earmarked for Marin County and the horses of Gray Fox Farm.
    We welcome donations from all breeds too

    The auction won't be limited to just stallion services. Someone have a dose or two of frozen semen they want to donate? They can do that too. Just make sure you make it clear who is responsible for the shipping etc.

    Do you have an item or services you are willing to donate. We would be happy to include that as well.

    We have donated our services to build a website for the auction and other items and services are quickly coming in.
    Get creative and email us with your suggestion.

      Bump - please donate - cash and/or auction items (some of the Stallion Services auctions closing soon, others over the next few days).

      Marin Humane Society has gone to bat for these horses - and won a first step in court this week (it is expected to be a long road). A small army of SOs and volunteers have put together this amazing fund raising effort. Please support the legal and care costs needed to protect these horses. Many are mares in foal.

      If you want to make a cash donation, I found the process super easy.

        As I have noted in other threads, we deliberately staggered the auctions so that no two items closed at the exact same time. And, so that no one has to be up in the middle of the night, the last item each day will close BEFORE midnight EST !

        So, here is a list of items that are closing this evening! Let's see if we can make this happen in a BIG way! With 3 of the 4 horses seized at UC Davis, you KNOW that bill is NOT going to be cheap. Let's make sure that there is sufficient funds to make sure they don't suffer for the stupidity of anyone involved.


        Leg-Up Auction to Benefit the Marin Humane Society - items closing Thursday Jan 10 2013

        Please note that although the closing times are indicate below, an item receiving a bid remains open for an additional 5 minutes to allow further bids. The bidding will actually close 5 minutes after the last bid is made.

                    Not to be an enabler or anything ...but these are foals by our pony stallions and out of Warmblood & Thoroughbred mares!

                    The first bay is out of a TB dam. The grey is out of a Hanoverian dam. The second bay is out of a Hungarian WB dam. The chestnut is out of a TB mare amd the last bay is also out of a TB mare.

                        Such amazing stallions. And I agree, the pony stallions are adorable.

                        It is a good thing I do not have a broodmare or I would be in lots of trouble.

                        What an amazing opportunity for those who do breed though. Great stallions and helping a good cause.

                          Seriously - if I still had one of my pony mares I bred, or if little old Angel wasn't in her 40's at this point I'd be bidding on one of them!

                            Let me enable you

                            I have a welsh pony by him who also was used for a stud for several years -- my pony is now gelded but I have a welsh mare and partbred welsh gelding by my guy which would make them the grandkids of Telynau Bronze Statue.

                            This is the FB link to my gelding by Telynau Bronze Statue: http://www.facebook.com/Nefeda#!/med...7545710&type=3 He is 13 hh

                            This is the FB link to my welsh mare by my guy which would make her Telynau Bronze Statue's granddaughter http://www.facebook.com/Nefeda#!/med...7545710&type=3 She is 12.1 hh

                            My coming 3 year old partbred (again Telynau Bronze Statue grandkid) is going to stay a large. Dam was a quarter horse.

                            All move extremely well, have great temperaments. Great kids ponies. In fact if I had a pony mare to breed other than his granddaughter I would be bidding against you.

                            He should keep the size down on non-pony mares

                                  Can I ask a question to all the SO's donating - is it ok for a mare owner to place a bid if they're only looking to breed in 2014 and not in 2013? Is there an "expiry" on these auction-won breedings?

                                  Thanks!

                                    Before you bid, you should contact the Stallion Owner directly. For our own stallion, I stipulated that the contract is good for 2 years. I saw some stallions on there that had contracts good for 3 years, etc. But it's probably best to contact them and ask, to make sure!

                                      The contracts on our stallions (Avalon Equine) are for three years. So, you have a few years to use them. But as Daventry said - contact the stallion owner to be sure.

                                      Okay, here's the link to the "items" that are ending tonight! BID BID BID !

                                      Good luck everyone!

                                        The contract for my stallion is good for 2 years and I'm very easy going I've always honored contracts and as long as the mare owner keeps me in the loop I'm easy to work with.
