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!

      If you're looking for Thoroughbreds, it will depend a lot on where you are located and/or how far you are willing to ship your mare to be bred.

        here is the page on a sister to her dam--

        Does "Street Cry" have any handsome sons at stud? Street cry on that mare line made Street sense.

          Desert Party stands in New York at Sequel Stallions. He's got an interesting pedigree for both racing and sport, especially for this mare. Not a bad looking horse either, but his stud fee is $7,500.

                On the TBs...stay in PA or travel out of state? Studfee range? If you are looking for a race TB with a sporthorse studfee it will shorten the list by a LOT! A first choice off the top of my head for the whole package TB is Sir Juli Go in Carlisle. He won 100K at the track, retired sound and has a lovely jump form on him as well.If you want a big time racehorse at a reasonable fee in KY look at Eddington. I saw him last year at Claiborne where his fee had been dropped to 5K...upper end of sporthorsedom but cheap by race standards. He had a lovely temperment, nice build and I have seen a few local Eddingtons that were OTTBs that went on to be nice hunters.

                  FYI - Alot of those published stud fees for racing stallions can be had for much cheaper through the many agents (they advertise in The Blood Horse magazine, etc.). If the books aren't filling (and you can check how many foals they are producing in the stallion registers) -- you can make an offer or check on a better deal with the farm or the syndicate. But going through an agent that has seasons/shares for sale from the share owners who aren't using the season is the best route to take.

                    Ideally I'd like to stay in Pa or close to it-unless the absolute best stallion/price were elsewhere than I'd consider sending her out-although I'd rather not....stud fee price range-ideally under 5k ...again ...unless the hands down best choice were a little more than I'd consider it...,I've heard off the top of my head in the past people mention that Partners Hero, Harry The Hat, Castle Cove, Lido Palace, Two Punch, Pleasant Colony, Seattle Slews,Alphabet Soups -and I'm sure I'm forgetting some are also known to be good Sporthorses?! Anybody care to weigh in...and would any of those be decent crosses with my gal?!?

                      I am certainly not an expert, but Alphabet Soup would hands-down be my number one pick. Caro and Cozzene are very nice to see in sport bloodlines. But A.S. is getting up there in years, so fertility might be an issue. Several of the stallions you mentioned are long passed, so you'd have to check into any sons by them. Stallions by Pleasant colony tend to be looked upon favorably (but take into account their dam lines as well), but most Seattle Slew lines tend to be passed over in the sport world. I do not like the pedigrees of Lido Palace and Two Punch for sport at all. Mr. Prospector can be iffy for sport; he is notorious for passing on crooked legs. Again, I am by no means an expert, but this is my 2 cents' worth. Hopefully someone else will chime in with some better insights. Good luck!
