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!

  • Need filly "D" names. Desperately!!

    I hate to admit this, but I have a filly from last year that I can't seem to name! She is bay with 3 whites and a star and snip. All the other babies have great names, and I just call this girl "Salva Filly". She really must have a D name.

    The other babies have the following names:


    She is Dutch and her father is Tango, and mother is Salva. The dutch often name fillies similar to their dam, but starting with the letter of the year. "Dalva" just doesn't sound too exciting to me!

    She looked alot like a kangroo when she was born. Very upright in the neck and had big doe eyes and floppy ears when she was born. Looked alot like this:

    Here are some ideas:
    Dalvada (dal-vaeda)
    Dalvadra (dal-vaedra)


  • #2
    Cloverfox Stables


    • #3
      Dulche (or Dulce)


      • #4
        Dutch Bunny

        But that is not really dignified, is it?




        Donna (add something to it)




        • #5

          And don't feel bad. My 2005 "D" filly didn't have a name until she was 6 months old. It finally came time to go to the inspection and I HAD to pick one. I had been calling her "baby" for 6 months so it took a while for her name to stick. My husband wanted me to name her "Da Baby." He is *so* funny (or thinks he is!)


          • #6
            I've got:

            Delight & Della. Also got a Dante and a Duncan but they're boys names


            • #7
              how about something australian like dingo or didgeridoo?


              • #8
                Dorotea (town in Sweden)

                Dellen (another Swedish place)

                Delsbo (ditto)

                Dalalven (River in Sweden)

                Dahlia (kind of flower)

                  I'm not much good at names but how about Dawnfire? Kind of sounds a bit Native but I liked it!

                  Alagirl...you realize Datura is a poisonous/hallucinogenic plant? ;-)


                  • Original Poster

                    Good names, guys! Very, very creative!

                    Inca, she's over a year old already! She was my first born last year - Feb 16! Ha, ha! Poor little (big) Salva Filly! What name did you choose, Inca?

                    I also thought of the Digeridoo name! I really thought she looked like a Kangaroo at birth! Darlington looked like a baby Caribou. She was seriously so vertical (like a Kangaroo) in the neck at birth that attempting to halter break her was dangerous! With her neck being so upright, she'd come back against the contact and almost fling herself over backwards. I instantly gave up halter breaking her until her neck relaxed.

                    Does anyone else make a list of baby names and goes out to the foal and says, "Are you So-and-So?", just so I can say the name, see the foal, and see if the name fits?


                    • #11
                      How about

                      Divinity (as in the candy)
                      Dansa (sort of a combination of the sire/dam's names)
                      Dame ____________?

                      Good luck!


                      • #12
                        I keep a list of names when I get inspired so I don't forget them. It's easier for my breed as I have no naming conventions that they impose on me. I do have certain conventions of my own I follow like using "gold" in the names of foals that are cream dilutes and offspring of my Cayuse "Gold" stallion.


                        • #13
                          I finally settled on Dyani for my long-unnamed filly. So far, I have not been able to find any other horse with that name so am glad she has something unique. People have trouble spelling it if they hear it and pronouncing it if they see it, though!

                            Ah, yes, Angel's Trumpet is quiet poisonous, but very pretty!

                            Dawnfire is cool, but then I am a nerd

                              If you want to stick with KWPN naming traditions, the above are along those lines.

                              However, I've had a filly name picked and won't get the chance to use it now: Dior

                                  Well the species name for a wallaby (like a small kangaroo) is Parma. Add a "d" and you get Dharma.

                                    I like the name Dahlia. She was a really great race mare of a few years back.

                                    I am superstitious about naming an unborn foal, but I do make a list of 'hypothetical' foal names.
                                    I do just wait for the name to come to me, that fits the baby.
                                    I have a filly in the barn right now, also a rising yearling, with no registered name.
                                    Nothing has come to me yet .......
                                    I might have to ask for help next!

                                        I have four "D" babies....

                                        Dolce Vita
                                        Dateline (her daddy is Hotline)
                                        Divo Ricco (his mom is Rica)
                                        Daimler (as in Mercedes Benz)

                                        I try to make lists of names before the babies arrive but seem to get worse and worse about it the longer I breed. My first two are due the third week of April and I haven't even started a name list yet! So maybe I need to start a separate thread asking for "E" names - you guys come up with good stuff!
