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!

  • They're also in Canada which means they'd be recorded with Equine Canada. And there may be no plans to show them so why bother recording them anyway?? Silly, if not totally irrelevant, thing to hope for...

    • Original Poster

      Owner will likely show up on the CLRC database here in Canada when Aloha is added to the CSHA stallion roster. Redwine is still listed as being Jill's on there but I suspect that just hasn't been updated yet.

        I have met Sarah Wilson in person a few times, but wouldn't say I "know" her. She was re-introduced to me earlier in the week as "the new owner of Aloha."

        As for the Redwine details... that's for the Ashland team to reveal.

          USEF is not an ownership database.

          Unless the new owner is interested in USEF Leading Sire, Owner or Breeder lists it makes no difference.
          ok yea I suppose someone who owns Redwine or Aloha isn't interested in that stuff (insert head scratching icon)

            Maybe you can ask Sara to post Remember the woman who bought all the mares and foals from Jill who came on to introduce herself (Rising Phoenix Warmbloods),,,I thought that was a smart business move on her part.

            • Yes, I am quite sure these people feel it is their DUTY to come on here and satisfy a bunch of strangers with too much time on their hands and no concept of boundaries. Good luck with that.

                They are standing a stallion.One who's "prior" owner has an egregious reputation in the breeding world. It would not be a horrible business decision to do a little meet and greet if you will. Standing as stallion is as much about business as it is genetics. Besides a little good publicity never hurt right ??

                  sorry Laurie, I usually agree with what you post, but I like many others will not breed to either stallion if they are still owned by JB so yes I would think it would be in their best interests to answer a very simple question.

                  most people I know have written off these stallions already, so maybe the new place has enough business to not care.

                  i did note the people that reportedley own Aloha have taken out the IHF nominated from his page. Would you suggest that we shouldn't have mentioned that on here either?

                  I guess having too much time on my hands means that I like the truth? Should have left the new owner alone because it doesn't matter that the advertising was wrong? As for satisfying a bunch of strangers, am I to assume that stallion owners only sell semen to people they know?

                  ooops sorry too much time on my hands again.

                    If either breeding farm had any interest in USEF lists then they would be USEF members.
                    They are not.

                    Still scratching head why who owns the horse on USEF's records has any relevance. If you care then wait and see who is listed on the Canadian database.

                    • It's also possible (but pure speculation) that there is some sort of syndication. There may be shares sold, and a change in management but $ still going back to JB. Who's to say that the Canadian database will reflect anything accurately anyhow?

                      I believe transparency will be in short supply in this case, and it's true, they don't really "owe it" to anyone. Of course no one owes them business anyhow. If you're uncomfortable with the possibility of $ going back to JB, don't use them.

                      I wish they would just make an honest statement. Their lack of one has led to far more speculation than the situation really warrants. That said, no one is owed anything.

                        Whatever, in my world USEF is relevant. Now I am aware in some people's world it is not. Nuff said.

                        Does not change the fact that I would like to know where my money would go if purchasing a breeding.

                        So point taken by a previous poster. I will simply not do that unless the situation is made clear.

                          USEF is relevant to what? You do understand they aren't an ownership registry?

                                  Yeah, I made that point wayyyyyyy back on one of the original threads, but yeah, well, hopefully everyone reading all this can figure out I'm not remotely related to anything about this situation

                                  • I don't understand the whole fuzziness around this situation.

                                    It *IS* a legitimate question to ask WHO is getting your hard-earned dollars in the end.

                                    I want to know WHAT I am buying and from WHOM.

                                    That being said, I wouldn't personnally use neither stallion, regardless of their ownership, for other reasons. I've got nothing to gain or loose in this.

                                    • Best wishes to the stallions and their new digs. May a few odd COTHers not hound the new business that is involved. May this debacle be quickly relegated to the past.

                                      If you are interested in a business transaction with any of these parties, contact them privately and have your concerns addressed in that business interaction. If you are a lookie-loo, please keep your keyboard tapping to yourself and do not hound the business. Get a grip.

                                      COTH is the LAST place anyone with actual connection wants to have an "interaction."

                                      There is too much drama, nastiness, and nosy busybodies for most of regular COTHers, much less business owners. The only thing to come from a person who has direct connection who posts on these threads is grief. And regret. Is it some weird JB curse that all these threads devolve into the twilight zone?

                                      The real story will be told elsewhere. The COTH bbs is not the place.

                                      Push the keyboards away and go ride.

                                        Justa Bob, Yes, this.

                                        I recall seeing you say this at the end of another one of your posts. You should make this your COTH "tagline".

                                          COTH is the LAST place anyone with actual connection wants to have an "interaction."

                                          There is too much drama, nastiness, and nosy busybodies for most of regular COTHers, much less business owners. The only thing to come from a person who has direct connection who posts on these threads is grief. And regret. Is it some weird JB curse that all these threads devolve into the twilight zone?

                                          The real story will be told elsewhere. The COTH bbs is not the place.

                                          Push the keyboards away and go ride.
                                          Disagree, but that said I have a friend who directed a "legitimate" question to the standing barn and received no answer.
