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!

    • Alejandro by Albarez (Alcatraz/Loutano) out of Cuba (Continue/Weinberg/Pilot) - updated pictures at one month old. These were taken right after I body clipped him, so don't look too closely at his coat!

      • We had a filly born on 5/28. Very easy delivery! She is by Riverman (HOL) out of Romanesque (Laurinn - Carolus I). I am assuming she will grey. Pictured at 10 days old.






        • Introducing the KWPN-Na colt Ivy League by Paganini Crown (xHavidoff) out of Adessa Keur (xKoss), born May 13, 2013. I think that this spectacular bay colt is the best foal that I have produced. At 3 weeks of age he showed that he has springs in his feet and should be an outstanding dressage prospect! Adessa is out of Odessa (xAhoy) who was named Gelders Horse of the Year in 2012, in the Netherlands. Adessa tied for the highest score in the North American keurings in 2008. Ivy League's full sister Hanna-Dessa was awarded Premium at the Keurings last year and named North American Champion Foals/Weanlings - Gelders. I am eager to hear what the KWPN jury thinks of this colt. Please visit my farm Facebook page to see more photos and video of this lovely baby!




          • Our last mare of the season foaled last night at 11:45 a very large chestnut filly (Amazing/Minardi/Gold Legend) with 4 perfectly matched stockings and a blaze. I am thrilled with her, so correct, well marked, and sweet to boot!

              I have made the albums public...beyond that I'm not sure why you wouldn't be able to see them. Perhaps someone tech saavy can enlighten me.

              • Nani, wow oh wow!! She's got serious bone and looks huge! Her markings are absolutely perfect Really nice filly

                • Oh Nani that's a lovely foal. And such a gorgeous mare too! Ditto JB, her markings are perfect, even down to the not-too-fat blaze.


                  • Thank you so much JB and Kerole! I am so pleased with her and will repeat the cross. She is HUGE! Her dam is my smallest mare at 15.2 but the filly is several inches taller than the two that are a week old. Her foals tend to be large but this filly has taken the cake. The mare needs to write the book on how textbook foalings are done. A nice foaling to follow the red bag from the mare before!

                    • That's great to hear this filly didn't cause the mare any trouble foaling. It's so scary to see a foal come out looking several weeks old already! LOL

                      • Rubignon x Liberty Gold/Donnerschall

                        Three weeks old...Roustabout ESE, by Rubignon x EM Lucia ESE (Liberty Gold x Donnerschall/Wilhelm Tell II) He is a total peach!!

                        Here he is hanging out with my 2 month old Wolkentanz II x Rouletto filly:




                        • Oh Lord those ears are just too cute!


                          • On June 13 we welcomed a chestnut filly Tia by World Cup winner Tinka's Boy out of Heidewolke (Hildebrand). https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater


                            • These were TOO cute not to share. Mine's the one with the star.

                              • ok, i *finally* get to announce - after 367 days - that on June 14th we had a filly!

                                From my Wolkentanz I mare Wolkendame, by GRP Manchester City. She is everything i dreamed of and more!

                                Not sure what color she will be: maybe dark brown or sooty buckskin - she has looong legs, a lovely pony head, loads of mane and tail, a lovely coat and just a few hours old already had many of the same mannerisms as my mare.

                                Did i mention i am in love?

                                Thanks to Nancy @ Crosiadore Farm for bringing Manchester City to the US and for being great to work with!

                                I think both Chester & Sophie should be very proud!


                                ps - i am on the hunt for names!


                                • The little man arrived!

                                  Breeding season has been busy so we're a little late posting this guy born April 27th, 2013.

                                  We are thrilled with this gentleman who we have named Imari S "Ari" by Catoki out of Julia du Brio (Diamant Rouge II x Kapoc). The only thing we wish is that he was a She!

                                  The photos were taken at 5 weeks of age.
