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!

    cloudyandcallie, it seems Cheryl hasn't been on Coth in quite sometime. I am composing and e-mail right now to send to College.

      It is my understanding that so called breeds like Hanoverian, Holsteiner, and Oldenburg were not breeds a long time ago. They called the horses this to identify what part of germany they came from. It was how they kept track of horses and breeding. As years went by people started referring to them as breeds because each registry had their own goals. Just like most dutch and danish horses can be traced back to german horses. That is why you can see horses of different breeds in their pedigree. At least that is what I've been told. Most warmbloods can be traced back to a lot of the same horses.

        He is a cute horse

        There is not really anything about him that screams warmblood.

        I would probably have your vet, or some other qualified person tell you about how old they think he is, ride him and enjoy him.

        Seldom are "free" horses everything they are represented to be, but it's easier to give away a former Hanoverian event horse that was "somebody" whose papers were lost, destroyed, whatever than it is to give away a grade horse out of non-winner of a ham sandwich by who's your daddy.

        He looks cute and sweet, hopefully , he'll stay sound and you'll have many years of enjoyment with him.

        You are "brave" for taking on the unknown, good for you.

          Cheryl is very nice. If the horse came through her place in Forsyth County, she can maybe help you find previous owner or barn where he was stabled. Apparently she has another branch of her rescue, so check there also.

          Cheryl also has a number of people who are local to her and help her out. Perhaps one of them knows the horse.

          Also try GERL, Georgia Equine Rescue League, which I think has changed its name. Hedqtrs is somewhere up near you, I think.

            Thank you all for your help. I appreciate it.

              I feel much more educated about Warmbloods now. All I have ever dealt with are thoroughbreds and tb crosses. I really thought that each warmblood breed was a specific breed like Appaloosa, thoroughbreds, quarter horses, etc. I will definitely do more research on the subject an educate myself more. Thanks for all of the kind words about him, he has good days and bad. But he loves my attention so I'm totally cool with that.

                Don't worry, OP, there are people on this board who still don't know what a warmblood is, because they don't read the european books. Which btw, are available in english translations.

                I told you how great Cheryl is. Horseinc is really a nice person who helps rescue and rehab and rehome horses in north GA, in Forsyth County above Atlanta. She is truly a nice person, so contact her for help.

                As others have said, he's cute, and I hope you have years of enjoyment with him. The trouble with not getting a tattooed TB is that you always have difficulty in finding out just who your horse was before you got him. Heck, when you buy a tattooed tb, it still takes a while to decipher the tattoo and find out from the Jockey Club just who the horse is.

                I hope that you can successfully rehab Be Brave and that he will give you years of enjoyment. And don't worry about what others say. My first BO said Cloudy was probably not what his papers and brand said he was. I laughed and said I was happy if he was Cloudy Cowpony with a Texas brand, as he was the horse I tried out and fell in love with and bought. (He doesn't even have a Texas accent, altho now he has a Geechee one.))

                  He is very cute and I hope you can find out more about his past. C&C is right even with tatto'd TB the paper trial can be murky. It took me almost 20 years to find out definitively who my TB jumper was according to the Jockey Club. A few name changes and a not legible tattoo and it was all cat and mouse to find out his past.

                  He does not scream WB to me almost looks like perhaps there is a bit of QH in there.

                  Regardless he is cute boy and I wish you both the best.
