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!

    I'm way behind here but had lost the link to this site. I've been looking through the posts and photos of all the lovely foals. I'm planning to keep this filly and when she's older, I plan to breed her to an approved sport pony stallion. Her name is Layla Sparkles, she is registered HAHR and ICHR. Her color is Sable Champagne. Her dam is my SE AK Arabian mare, HF Macarena.

    Layla is expected to mature about 13 hands. Is there anyone else in the group with Arab blooded sport type ponies?

    Here are some photos of her from her foal pics to late summer. She's in winter fuzzy coat now.

    Neat color-- whose the sire?

    • Wehrlegirl,
      Thank you, we have a couple of Champagne Pony foals every year. They are stunning to look at aside from the wonderful temperaments and trainability of the foals by our stallion. He goes by Studley here at home but his ICHR reg name is Lil Champagne Tease. His color is Sable Champagne Appaloosa and he is 10.2 hands. We breed him to mares up to 15 hands. I used to have a wonderful Percheron mare from Jaegers Percherons in Iowa and my husband wanted me to try a breeding to her....never happened, lol, but I think we could have. I have a breeding chute with a raised platform in the back for him to mount the mares with ease and safety. I love that we can use him to taller mares but the really nice thing is that he is non-prepotent so he produces pony foals that are like the mare they are out of. We have produced a reg MFT Pony that is a replica of the foxtrotter breed and is very gaited. I'm starting her driving in the spring. I have a lovely, stock type appaloosa pony mare (11.2 hands) and she never fails to give us colorful ponies that are born ready to train. I wanted a "special" Arabian Pony so I found a mare that fit my requirements for type and I was not disappointed. Layla is a real jewel.

      Here is "Studley" (aka Lil Champagne Tease). His DNA was part of the study at the University of Kentucky where they discovered the location of the gene for Champagne and developed the first test for it. He is also part of the Appaloosa Project, another study being done. They have just had a breakthrough that may revolutionize the way Appaloosa breeders breed for color.


      • Here is another foal by Studley, out of one of my MFT mares. This mare is solid black, not a white hair on her and Studley is heterozygous for appaloosa so imagine my surprise when she foaled this colorful colt. His name is Dusty, he will mature 13.2 to 14 hands. His color is Classic Champagne Appaloosa.

                    With her "sisters". The one on the right is also by Bliss MF. And amusingly, Grace is a month younger than the other two... I think she might be a monster - she's only 5 months!

                                • Grayfox, it sure shows that it pays off to 1) have quality broodmares and 2) to know how to pick the right stallion for them. Congrats on producing some very lovely kids, and by stallions OTHER than Redwine as well!


                                  • GrayFox - Another lovely youngster. How old is this one in this photo?
