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 also have one of those chicken chokers. TB gelding who folks swear "has a testicle up there somewhere." He is so stallion-like that he literally killed a life sized horse statue 2 nights ago.

            I watched the breeding boss at Claiborne throw a MAJOR fit about a young stallion (actually only 3 , so a colt!) who kept having WAY too much fun.. The guy laughed, but he said "do you know how much MONEY is drooling down that leg?!"

                I worked at the Breed's Barn at the KHP one summer. Between showings, we would often take a few horses down to the main gate so the incoming visitors could interact with them. One fine summer day, I took Tre Awain Ginger Blue, a Connemara stallion, to do the nicey with the park guests. I was standing there chatting and answering questions when I heard a little girl ask her mom very loudly what Ginger was doing as she pointed under his belly. The horrified mother gasped and yanked her kid away.

                Half the tourisits were staring at Ginger's belly by this point. I decided to see what was going on and glanced down under to see him going to town. I quickly started him walking in circles as I hissed at him to put that thing away. This only made matters worse, as it was now swinging from side to side as well as up and down . Did I mention that he was, ahem, rather well endowed for a pony?

                Suddenly, the other girls that had brought geldings down realized that their horeses had decided to join in on the fun. So here we have a pack of horses having a grand old time in front of dozens of families. We quickly quit the scene, but I saw lots of cameras in use. Those should be some interesting pictures.

                    I own an stallion ( 4 yrs. old) and a gelding(9yrs. old) and get this the gelding does it more than the stallion. Go figure. Only think I can think of why the gelding does it is he was gelded late (at 3) and is older.

                        alot of that is involuntary movements and there's some sort of formal name for it. it's normal for all male horses to move it around quite often during the day.

                        my horse was so studdy when i got him that even the sight of a tack trunk would set him off. ''no boy, no, not an inanimate object...''

                        ''the boys at the barn'' were in a gelding turnout group. it would all start by rubbing their heads on the rump of a new horse, and then it would all start to look like a....i can't even say it here.

                        my barn manager seemed to think it was a marvelous idea to cut down the number of turnouts by putting my guy out with a mare. so i got to see the ''full range of natural behaviors'', and was always having to try and keep him from getting up on her when i was bringing them both in.

                        carol grant i think it was said, ''oh go on! it's good for his piaffe muscles! let him!''

                        so i turned a blind eye to it for some time.

                        sparky did seem to have some pretty good stomach muscles, but he'd be so tired when i went to ride him that i'd practically get a heart attack trying to make him go.

                        i thought it would be odd to tell the EMT's that i got a heart attack because my horse was out in a field having se* all day.

                        would they understand?

                        not only that, but the mare owner actually TOOK THE HORSE OUT OF THE BARN, because ''i just can't UNDERSTAND why she's so in season all the time!''

                          I must be the only one in the world whose gelding does not do this. But I can't say I'm sorry!

                          We've got a group of about 8 geldings and mares who go out together. The barefoot group. Other than the occasional scrape on a gelding from having fought over one of the girls, there's no hanky-panky or mischief. Certainly no strangled chickens!

                            Nah, he's just too polite to do it around you! LOL

                            My yearling was starting to get into it before I got him gelded. It's really hard to have a straight faced conversation with someone when you hear that "thump, thump" from under your horse's belly... the funniest thing though is the look they have on their faces... When Yoda "discovered" "it" he looked like he'd just won the triple crown. He was SO proud of himself!

                              My gelding does the stomach-thumping thing fairly often, but I have never seen it spout off.

                                  Yep, my recently departed stallion used to spank his monkey several times a day if he was bored. I was washing the offending member one day (he was SO dirty it was just disgusting) and he thought it was spank-me time and he sort of got involved in the washing thing, so I had to quit. The barn help was majorly amused by that.

                                    Haha....my geldings do the stomach thumping thing all the time...especially while flirting with the mares in season.
                                    Oh, and how about this for a mare...I actually saw her in the act one day...my friend owned a little pony mare, and when the mare felt frisky while she was tied up she would back up the the water spigot and umm, pleasure herself. If she was in her little run outside her stall she would find a piece of wood or something along the fence to do it on...ughh!

                                      My lod Hanoverian used to LOVE weenie washing time, needless to say I hated it! I would turn him out in the arena to do it, never had to tie him up as he looked forward to it! And I had to clean it once a month because it would get SO gross... I think he got it that dirty on purpose!

                                        You know, I am really relieved to know that I am not the only one who has a gelding that ejaculates. I have been worried about this for a while thinking it was completely abnormal so I feel much better now.

                                        The one thing that gets my boy excited every time is being touched on his chest or between his front legs. I always thought it might be because that is where the mare would be during a breeding.
