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!

    I asked as well on the FB page.... if it is just for the 2013 season... well,
    here we go again. Why not just say "we purchased them?"... According to Jos, they did... so WHY not say so?

      Glad you all find that funny, RS almost landed in a really nice home, like you all claimed that you wanted for these horses. You think the witch hunt on this thread had nothing to do with her backing out? doubtful. Was it the only thing, probably not. But the fact is you can not ever say your words were "useful"

        Please note, in the interests of accuracy - which is important and tends towards lacking in this overall scenario - that I did not say that Paul/Ashland had bought the horses. I have not seen a Bill of Sale, and have no way of verifying that. What I said was that I had telephoned Paul and spoken with him and that he had told me that he had bought them. I repeat my specific quote below.

        I would encourage anyone that has questions to call Ashland Farm directly and ask them, as I did, not to hypothesize and conjecture! There's too much of that going on already!!

          Well, I DO try to keep a note of humor in my posts, so glad you appreciate it.
          Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.

                He posted what he was told which makes his info correct. If the info he was told wasn't correct is another matter, but I don't see Paul lying to him.

                  You know, I am glad to hear these boys arrived in good condition regardless of the circumstances that landed them there but am sickened by the thought of some horses on her property being well fed while others were starved. Who the hell does that? How do you decide who is worthy of basic nourishment?

                    I've seen it locally with one of our WB breeders here. Helped rehome a TB mare from that farm, totally disgusting! And I don't understand it either.

                      I have seen it too, and would be willing to bet you would recognize the name if I told you. Got the person's trainer's license pulled for several years because of it. He was feeding the horses in the front field by the road where people could see as they drove by and starving the horse in the back. I still don't understand it.

                        fwiw, if you are shipping a horse cross country or from west coast to ontario - the horse will generally go to a lay over in KY. That is the hub and where they change from east/west travel to north travel.

                        so that layover probably has nothing to do with anything other than that is how the transport biz works.

                        my guess is that the stallions are at Rideauwood for quarantine ?

                            You really struggle with appropriate boundaries, don't you? Since when does it matter what you think in terms of a horse being sold and the deal falling apart? Unless you are directly involved, you really have nothing to say in the matter. The people that crucified RSF for choosing not to go through with the sale have some seriously unusual investments emotionally in the lives of others. For all we know, RSF decided she was sick of the drama and was choosing to no longer involve herself - a very wise woman, if you ask me! And if you think the drama is nonexistent, then you likely need forceps to pull your head out from your nether-regions!

                              Now this is entertainment, as I never crucified anyone. Just pointed out what happened to be the TRUTH. I've been around for awhile, been involved in all kinds of horse deals on every level. Just called it like I saw it, and I happened to have the right opinion. Wondering why that bothers some of you so much?

                              Sold is sold, not understanding the difficulty with that concept. As far as speculation...read your post, LOL.

                                And if Brookledge shipped them, they have a facility in Kentucky. Makes perfect sense.

                                    I don't have to speculate - your posts speak for themselves in regards to this matter. Why do you care what happens or doesn't happen, transaction-wise? The emotional investment in this situation by you and some others is just odd. Why does it matter whether RSF chose not to pursue the sale or not? How are you impacted?

                                      If I had to guess, RSF made a logical business decision. It was beginnimg to look as though it could be several months before she would get the stallion released to her, which means he would miss the breeding season. You can't take bookings until you know the stud is available to provide the service and mare owners are finalyzing selections now. You don't spemd that much money for a horse only to lose the initial season with no guarantees that nothing would go wromg before the NEXT season. I'd have cancelled the sale too. (unless it was a horse like Secretariat!)
