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!

  • Any Caro lovers out there???

    There's a gray stallion coming up for sale in Illinois with good sport horse lines, his name is Company Approval: http://www.pedigreequery.com/company+approval .

    The thread is on Off Course--links to pics there: http://chronicleforums.com/Forum/sho...d.php?t=178956 .

    There are many With Approval horses showing on the A circuit here in Ontario that are really successful.

      He's a nice looking horse too. A saw a lovely With Approval mare go through the auction here in NY last month. I'd have loved to get her. She brought $6k. She was in foal to a good NY stallion, but what a sport mare she'd have made.

        There is a broodmare for sale named Carrot by Western Playboy. http://www.pedigreequery.com/carrot+top3 She's interesting because she is doubled on Sicambre--Tail Male, and the second dam's sire is Little Current who was by Sea-Bird, who is also descended from Sicambre. Exceptionally fine sport horse lines, and all the Little Currents that I've seen have been lovely. She has many other good sporthorse lines, too, like Thatch and Le Haar and My Babu and Turn-To. And there are several of her foals in the sale as well, and they look very nice to me. All are by Company Approval, I think.

        Sicambre was the sire of Sacramento Song, a TB sire in Hannoverian and other WB stud books. Thatch was the sire of Prince Thatch, also WB approved in Germany.

        The people in Illinois are trying to set up a rescue operation for these horses. Information is in the Off Course thread. And in the Illinois Dispersal thread here.

            I have a Caro grandson. He has a great attitude, and jumps like a bird!


            • #7
              Ok, someone needs to pick up Radiant Angel. She's in foal to Company Approval, and this is the foal she will have in the spring.

              My powerball ticket hasn't come through yet, and I need to live through someone else as I really CAN'T take even one of these horses.

                I have a Caro tbred mare. LOVE her. Ive had her for 15yrs now. She is very athletic, loves to jump, has attitude(in a good way)

                  Does anyone know -- did the stallion sell? He is gorgeous.


                  • Original Poster

                    I read on that thread on the other COTH forum that he is going to a breeder in Canada and will be siring more offspring!

                    What a lovely guy he is....

                      On another Caro note--
                      The stallion Running Stag whom I have been following for years has just been sold to Korea. This is a great loss because he had the potential to be a wonderful sport horse stallion.

                      If anyone runs into any of his get as racetrack leftovers, they would be well worth a shot for sport.

                        Cozzene, who recently passed away, has the same sire (Caro) as Company Approval. My mare's is grandsire is Cozzene. If I'm not mistaken, Cozzene stood at Gainesway Farm.

                          My friend stands a Caro greatgrandson, and he's just phenomenal... http://www.pedigreequery.com/alexcar

                          I know Foolish Pleasure is a great sire of H/Js, I don't know much about his other bloodlines... we were just talking about them the other day, and whether they have value in the sport horse world, as she is considering gelding him in a few years and selling him as a riding horse. He has a bit of a stifle problem, so he's not 100% sound enough for higher level competition, which we both feel is important for a stallion to complete... but he has fabulous gaits all around and is reportedly very brave and loves to jump!

                          He's put 3 *really* nice foals on the ground for her, two (oldest is rising 2) out of a Ben Faerie G'daughter, and one out of her daughter by Catherston Dazzler. Boy, oh boy can they move!!

                          I would appreciate any information on his bloodlines. Maybe if she does geld him I'll be in a place where I can take him. He's a great big teddy bear to top it all off.

                            just realised the 'other' thread is the link at the top of this page, lol. I feel a bit sheepish ~BAA-aa

                              Cozzene is/was a Nasrullah line stallion through a stallion called Grey Sovereign, whose line includes Caro & In Excess, in this country - Grey Sovereign's offspring are more plentiful in Europe.

                              I mention because I think Grey Sovereign is possibly the root of the sporthorse connection - our stallion Sir Juli Go [he was on the thread about iron horse stallions because he had 135 starts & came off the track sound enough to learn to jump, too] also goes back to Grey Sovereign, but not through Caro.

                              So if you look through pedigrees as you look at sporthorse prospects, watch a few generations back for Grey Sovereign.

                                :: bump :: I'd be very interested in any thoughts about this stallion's pedigree... she's now considering leasing him out now, and we're both very curious: http://www.pedigreequery.com/alexcar

                                  I have a Mecke mare, and she's lovely. Unfortunately she suffered a fractured sesamoid at the track and won't be a saddle horse, but she's nicely put together, and a pretty mover (the ankle hasn't fused quite yet)...

                                  That coupled with Caro would have me excited for sure!

                                  If he's producing nice babies, I would seriously consider him.
