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.

  • Quarter Horse Names

    Any ideas for a registered name for a fictional Quarter Horse? He's a buckskin. I already have a show name and a barn name, but I know nothing about registered names, unless it's something like Heza Ropin Pony or Ima Gonna Buck or Skippa Nippa Gold. Poco D'Oro? I love QH names, I just can't seem to make them up!

    I once named a fictititious TWH Pride's Pushover, so I'm open to almost any suggestions, but at least PG-rated ones, please!

    No inspiration at present. But since this is fiction I trust you'll be able to make it better than the average quarter horse registered name. Mine have included Fuerte Nick, Buck Bar Man, Poco Luke Bailey, Skippa Sugar Bo- nothing to write home about there.

    Oh, wait. Male. Buckskin. How about He's Dun Enough? Or to make it more along what some do with the spelling, Hez Dun Enuff. Or maybe Dun Buckin'...no, I should quit now.

          If you can browse through the American Quarter Horse Journal you will be amazed at all of the names. Around here Smart Lil Lena, Peptoboonsmal, High Brow Cat and Peppy Sanbadger are some big names in cow ponies bloodlines. (Disclaimer: I could have screwed any one of those up spelling and otherwise)

          My gelding has a horrible registered name it is Sir Quincy's Iceman. I just hate the Iceman part. One of our mares has a great name it is Juana Be a Hottie ----- we call her Hottie.

            QH names are almost always a combination of names from the top and bottom side of the pedigree that instantly let people know how the horse is bred. To get a good name, you have to have an idea what your fictional horse's sire and dam's names are, so really, you need three names

              I thought of combining Poco Bueno something with something O'Lena or Lena. Then I thought of just making all the names up, going back to Three Bars or thereabouts and just inventing a whole pedigree. But knowing me, I would get so interestedin the name game that I would forget about the story. And this is just one horsey character!

              I think I will check out some buckskin QH pedigrees online and hope to get some ideas.

              Thanks for the suggestion!

                Gotta love the Juan names, you can really have fun with those. My mare is by Terrific Juan, I didn't breed her so didn't get to name her and the breeders named her BDB Fashion Design....a little fancy for me, and what a waste of the Juana . Some of her siblings names I really enjoy are...

                        Crap, I didn't read your whole post and just assumed those were suggestions... Oh well, it would have kinda sucked since they aren't related to Juan Bad Cat or whatever his name is

                              At breed shows the show name must be the registered name.

                                Yes, I was thinking I had read that somewhere. Thanks.

                                Apparently at our local schooling shows you can use another name for the show name. I know one QH who does combined training here and has a really QH-sounding registered name, but his young owner and her mom gave him a show name based on the barn name he came with and it has no dignity, unlike his registered name.

                                As a QH convert I just think it is cool to go to a dressage or combined training show and see on the program a name like Doc's Bar None. (Of course I would probably give him a show name more like Doc's In Sox or something ... )

                                Hmmm ... mavbe I've just found my buckskin's registered name ... !

                                  I do like his registered name though "I CD SPOT". He tested positive for Tobiano twice, once by animal genetics and once in a study done by Stevenson University...but all the body white he has is that tiny spot on his neck & 4 high whites...of course his call name is Doc, with that much Doc Bar....he's a Doc .....

                                    It's good to know that you can change a quarter horse's registered name if he hasn't earned any points. I have a friend who just bought one named Hullabalulu. She changed it to Nip Tuck because she used the money she had set aside for cosmetic surgery to buy it

                                      I love it! The QH I used to ride had been owned by a plastic surgeon at one time so I really like "Nip Tuck"!

                                      Thanks for the pedigree! I like I CD SPOT. Good name.

                                      He's got everybody in there! Doc Bar, Three Bars, Poco Bueno, King, Little Joe ... I don't know QH names like I do TB ones, but I certainly recognize those 5. And Traveler ... and I assume Doc Olena was the one who started all the "Lena" names? Good to know how they got started; I had wondered. It's a name I see a lot.

                                      So, technically, Lightning Bar was what would now be called an Appendix?

                                      How about Janus? Little Janus? Does he fit somewhere in QH bloodlines?
