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!

  • Registering Appy?

    Hey guys,

    Not sure which forum would be best, but figured most Appy people would be on the western forum.

    I have been talking to someone who used to show Appaloosas quite a few years ago in breed shows. She had asked if I showed mine currently - and I had to explain that he's just an overgrown POA.

    I've always wondered if it was possible to have him registered as an Appaloosa if he is too tall to be a registered POA? I looked on their site and his parents are both registered POAs, but it's not one of the accepted breeds for either parents.

    Do you think there'd be any exception since he isn't a registered POA? He does have ApHC in his lineage (obviously), just not his dam or sire. Or does that automatically count him out?

    For reference - he's most definitely got the Appy look - http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphoto...94891421_n.jpg

    Spayed mares and geldings with recognizable color can be "hardship" registered. Parentage does not have to be known. Last year the fee was $100 for members, $165 for non-members. Paint markings aren't permitted and the gelding has to be over 14 hands at five years of age.

    The ApHC website, www.appaloosa.com has decent info. The hardship option is a bit hidden though. Quite a few of the top gelding show horses have pedigrees of unknown x unknown.

      The form for hardship registrations with ApHC is here: http://www.appaloosa.com/pdfs/hrdshpreg.pdf In the spaces for sire and dam, fill in "Unknown."

        Do any of you have a membership to be able to look up info on a Appy for me?

        His registered name was "Bodaciously Choo" and I think he would be about...hmmm...9 now maybe?

          I looked it up and will PM you. No show record/points for ApHC shows. Only 1 owner.

            I am pretty sure the hardship states no pony. I don't know if they consider the POA a pony no matter the actual height though

              That's why you list "unknown" on the parentage. We had a 15.3h gelding when I was a kid that was hardship registered and his papers stated "Unknown." He was out of a little POA mare. I don't recall what the sire was. For geldings, it really doesn't matter, as there is no chance of them passing on any latent pony genes.

                When I looked into it all you needed to get the hardship registration was the fee and 3 out of four appaloosa traits - coat markings, mottled skin, white sclera, striped hooves.
                I could have hardship registered my Appy but I didn't bother as I have no serious interest in the breed shows and there aren't any close by. I mainly do eventing/ combined training.

                  Latent Pony genes.... is that like "the bad seed"?

                        I usually heard "Out of Nevada, by trailer." :-D

                        And yes, I'm quite sure latent pony genes could be equivalent to a bad seed. ;-)

                            I'd call the Appaloosa Horse Club and ask them - they should know.

                              Sorry, late to the party.

                              If you register him under the hardship clause, you can compete him for ACAAP points. Gives him a verifiable show record with the ApHC. As mentioned above list his sire and dam as unkown.

                              But, as a stallion owner, I would like to know what my horse's get are doing. I would register him with POA, so there is a owner on file for him. Since he is gelded, his size does not matter. His genes are not going to be put into the breeding pool. If they ask for a size, just list it as 14.3 hands.

                              No latent pony genes is because they want to make sure that the registered horses are horse size. Even though you can find many pony sized Appaloosas with registration paper.

                                If he's over-sized, I'm pretty sure he can't get his POA papers. They do require he be measured by an inspector (easily done at most POA shows) to show that he's under 56". We've been through it before with a couple of POA fillies and most recently a POA gelding. They are pretty strict on height. That's why the poster was asking about appy registration.

                                  Sorry, I have no knowledge of the POA organization. More of the registries should be so strict.
