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!

  • Breeder Ignores Emails Asking For Registration Papers

    So how can this backyard breeder be pursuaded to either register the young horse purchased or send breeding certificate? Yes, registration was promised. But breeder in question has proved to be a lot of talk and not much action. Many people have had problems with this person who is a real twit

    Thanks for any suggestions

    Some of the registries take a long time to process papers. For example, Danish Warmbloods have to be presented at an inspection to get papers. As such, depending on where you are, you can have a horse turn four and just get its papers. Inspections are every two years with that registry. RWA also takes time. DNA and paperwork is presented in Septmeber, another meeting in January, etc...that Registry is run by the Ministry of Agriculture.

    Just examples...not trying to make excuses for the particular breeder. It seems that the more off hte beaten path the registry, the longer it takes. I'm waiting on papers back from Russia, so I feel your pain.

      Hmmmm...

      That's interesting to know. Thanks for the info. Didn't know it could take years in some cases.

      But, no: This breeder does. not. answer. emails.

      Has had a website up for a long time expounding the virtues of the stock & 'breeding program', and doesn't even answer emails from people asking about any horses for sale!

      It would seem that the breeder's website is only a fancy "photo album" of horses that may or may not still exist.

      <sigh>

      So many posers & pretenders out there.

      Beware of the nicest appearing websites.

        What registry? RPSI takes FOREVER -- like 7 months or more. If you have a bill of sale you might be able to circumvent the breeder....

          Also, depending on what registry you are talking to, you may be able to get a hardship registration based on DNA. Kinda depends on whether the parents are on file, and what registry it is. Have you called the registry and explained the situation? They might be able to help...

            I'm confused - did you purchase a foal/yearling?? what?? And the breeder who sold you this youngster didn't provide you with a copy of the papers when you purchased the animal? What does your sale contract state regarding the transfer of the registration papers?

              I have a 9 month weanling colt that I bred. I have sent NUMEROUS emails(I've been asking for at least 6 months ) to the current and past owner of the stallion and I still cannot get a breeding certificate from them.They will not return my emails either...Anyone have any suggestions? I'm thinking of having my attorney send them a friendly correspondence!

                  Indeed!! Doesn't anybody know how to dial a phone or send a registered letter any more?

                  Email is certainly NOT 100% -- in fact, I would rate it the lowest on the reliability factor -- slighter higher than carrier pigeon, perhaps.

                    It can take up to a year or more to get papers/passports, depending on registry.
                    Maybe try CALLING this person and asking them instead.

                        Actually, I think Carrier Pigeons are pretty reliable. Email, ranks right up their with paying your little brother a quarter to deliver a note to your crush.. most likely ends up wadded up in the (virtual in this case) trash can.

                          I would call and send a registered letter and I would copy the letter to the Registry that the Stallion is licensed with. Stallion owners are required to send breeding certificates to mare owners - so keep the registry in the loop.

                                That is a bummer. I hope you get it soon.

                                For the OP, I am also curious as to what your situation is. How old is the horse that you bought? What registry is it? I sold a 3 year old as registered, who had just been inspected as a 2 year old. I needed to send in DNA and it took a good year to get the papers. I kept telling the buyer that I was still waiting on the papers, but it did sound a little fishy! But I've also seen ads for horses, some 4, 5 even 6 years old saying "eligible" for this registration or that. But I seriously have my doubts about that. If you ever buy a horse and the owner/breeder says it is "eligible" for registration, check it out with the registry first! And ask why they didn't register it themselves. I was just thinking about this because I have another foal who is "eligible" for registration. I just didn't get a chance to take her to her foal inspection. I will next year if I haven't sold her yet. But if I do sell her before, the breeding certificate goes with her in place of papers! Good luck.

                                  I agree with Ilona (ISE). Send them a registered letter, with cc to the registry and the owner of the sire. Tell them you will turn the matter over to your attorney if you have not received the papers within 15 days. And follow through on it. Yes, it will cost you money to get your attorney to write them a letter, but the seller needs to learn that they have to do business in a professional manner.

                                  FWIW, I would never buy a registered horse without withholding a certain amount until the original papers are received (not photocopies) Have this stipulation written into the sales contract, and make sure the seller signs it. This system has worked well for my friends and various clients through the years.

                                    Phone idea won't work - breeder won't return phone calls, either.
                                    But sending a letter might.

                                    If all else fails, I guess I could provide full details and 'out' the breeder on here...

                                    I'd rather not do that as yet.

                                    Thanks for all of the ideas

                                        As noted earlier: how old is the horse and what breed is it registered as? If it is RPSI on a horse that was presented this past fall then they probably won't get the papers until April or May of 09. However, they should still have a copy of the inspection sheet to give you if it is a WB youngster. Ditto for other registries that require an inspection......they should have a score sheet to give you.
