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!

  • 24yo Stage Door Johnny stallion on Giveaways

    His damsire is Tom Fool.

    He's in Massachusetts and needs a home ASAP, as he and a companion will be sent to Crowley's auction on Tuesday (?)


    He's also out of one of my favorite mares/marelines--Bebopper/Bebop.

    That's so sad. I see so many threads like this where animals are being sent to auction if they don't get re-homed asap. It just breaks my heart but I can't take any more animals. I took 2 rescues last year and have never done that before. I just couldn't turn my back on two weanlings.

    Jingles and prayers for the horses involved.

      I'm too far away to take him, but if anyone here can take him, I'll help with the finances.

      This breaks my heart.

        Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Old stallions and old broodmares thrown away after their breeding days are over. We are a disposable country. And Tom Fool on his dam's side?
        Well fugly had the late geldings on her post the other day and 24 yoa is not too old to geld.
        Someone take him. I'll donate towards the transport or gelding.


        • #5
          I can help a little too with transport/gelding.

            Ya gotta love the SDJ's! He was such a grand stallion! I'm in too. Wish I could take him. What is the companion? There was a SDJ that stood in South Alabama years ago, many of his babies raced in Birmingham -- very kind, big boned, tall sporthorse type. Is this stallion still breedable?


            • #7
              There's another thread with this stud and another old stud. Both in Mass. Barn closing, and they are off to auction if not given a home.


              • #8
                I'd be happy to chip in a little also to help these poor guys.


                • #9
                  This is the other thread:

                  I've been informed that they will be free to anyone willing to take them.

                  Thank you all for your concern.


                  • #10
                    I have a possible line on a home for either one or both of them... we may need assistance with shipping costs if it works out. I'll keep you posted!
                    Thanks again!


                    • Original Poster

                      He's actually got Nimbus by Elf--a truly great sport horse line--on the first page through Bebop. What a GRAND pedigree! And he was bred by Jock Whitney's wife, per the JC.

                      This is Broadway Jester I'm talking about. A genuine dinosaur. His sire was 20 when he was born, and his dam was 23!

                        Any pictures? He sounds like a grand ole sole. I would be happy to donate if someone tells me how and where and when.

                          I'll chip in for shipping etc.! Hope he finds a great home/field/friend

                            I think I may know these guys. Count me in for a donation for shipping and care if someone can step up.

                              I might have some photos of these guys as I used to board my mare and foal there. I will look around later when I return home. They were not in the best condition when I left a few months ago but I know they were UTD on vaccinations, deworming, and trimmings.

                                My father said he would be happy to take in the older stallion! The catch is finding a way to get him here. He is located in NC. If your friend is still needing to find a home for him, I think between my father and the cothers we could find him some rides out this way.
                                I would be willing also possibly be willing to take one. There are a couple of variables working against the boys, though, so let me elaborate.

                                I just spoke with the barn manager, and the she said the owner is willing to give these guys away with papers, and they are current on all vaccinations, farrier, deworming, etc. Broadway Jester is on all day turnout in a private paddock, and apparently still quite spunky! Both are sound, healthy and "have never even had a snotty nose". The current owner has owned Boradway Jester since he was a yearling. The farm is closing it's doors, and all horses need to be moved before the 15th. From what I gather, Broadway Jester is in all day turnout, and is respectful of fencing, etc. though he still KNOWS he is a stallion and will act like one. Concorde's Future is a bit more mild mannered, even though he is "younger". Whatever the case, they have both been in a boarding situation for years, so we know they are easy to handle, as long as someone remembers they are stallions.

                                HOWEVER, neither horse has a current coggins, and they apparently there is someone scheduled to pick them up for the sale on Tuesday. I could also possibly offer a home for one of them, but I am not aware of any hauler who will haul without a current coggins in hand, unless the horse is going directly to a sale.

                                Whatever the situation, and whereever the horses end up permanantly, I am thinking the horses *may* need somewhere to stay for a day or two until the coggins is back, and final transport arrangements can be made. Even if I cannot take one, I would be willing to pitch in, as well, for hauling. I cannot afford to haul one home presently, as I just purchased an older stallion and all of my resources are going into him right now, and he needs to come first.

                                  Thanks, Joie!! I'm glad to hear she got back to you, and thank you for providing all the details. My friend and I are working on finding temporary housing for them around here until we can get everything in order - I should know about that in a few hours. Greenerpastures on the other thread said her father has agreed to take one of them. I'm willing to get the coggins done and I can arrange that no problem. Anyone have any ideas on shipping companies, quotes, how to get this all done??
                                  Thanks so much!!
