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!

    Hoochie Bucket, Spankmonkey, Virginia (courtesy of Willem):

    Mein little Ducster, now you be fourteen months old! Und becose your life wot it be being ein daddy horsje, here be der instructiones.

    Mein selve I haff all ways finded mares wot they be ein different species. Kind off like Arabians. Mannie time they don't nott to know iffen they be coming or going. There be this man called Reggie Mate wot he come and talk to them some times und tell them to get mit der program aber usually this it usually don't nott to work.

    Mares wot they haff baby horse eggs in their virginia. The virginia it haff opening under der tail in der middleburg between butt cheeks. Wenn you be going to make baby horse wot it be like this. You look at mare und say "Hallo mein schatzi, do you want ein poke?" Mares wot they loff to haff ein poke.

    You should be doing this mit der bodyguard wot also be called handler. Becose other wise mares they come after you und they want to haff relationship und they want to marry you und they want you to buy them mannie things und share your karroten mit you. Und this it be wrong.

    Any ways, wenn you ask her if she want ein poke, die mare she right a-way will sticken her tail up und say "JA, JA, JA, JA, JA!!!" Just like wenn Meg Ryan haff beed in der delicatessen on Wenn Harry Meeted Sally. Then it be time to giff her ein poke. You get behind her und jump on her sitzen und putt der spankmonkey in der virgina. Der spankmonkey it all ready know that you be doing this und it be stiffy. Die mare she haff dreams then von shopping und credit cards wot you pay der bill for.

    Der spankmoney for like some time in between ten seconds und ein hour (mein wot it be ein hour), it work und then it start to tickle. It feel like toe part von your hoofes they curl und you scream "AY CARAMBA!!!" Your tail it whip up und down.

    Then you haff organism, get off die mare, go home und go to sleep. Some times they want to haff cigarette aber der best thing to do is loff them und leave them.

    Und then wenn you haff doed this, baby dust it haff comed out off your spankmonkey und it go to der baby horse eggs, und then ein few weeks later die mare she get verrie fat und then one morning she wake up und there be ein baby horse in her howse. This it means she haff folded.

    Iffen you don't want to haff no baby, you haff poke in ein condominium. Und some times der chaperone they let you practice mounting wenn you use AI machine, wot it also be called Hoochie Bucket. Then they sell baby dust for mannie dollares und put der money in die karroten fund.

    You all ways haff to say "please" und "danke schon." Becose it be verrie muy importante to be ein gentleman.

    Loff Willem.

          Thanks to Willem, every now and then I get tickled over the fact that I now live in Virginia (the state of Virginia...not in A virgina!).

            I think that Coreene's concise dictionary of COTH euphymisms should go into the favorites forum!
            Maybe with links to the threads they started in. or would the be too comlicated? (they would be for me, but I'm working midnight shifts, so I have an excuse -finally- to be a bit brain-dead!!!)

                Ahhh ... those were the days, of innocence and play, good and happy times. How I miss them, and dear Herr Papa Willem.

                I am learning many new things now, ... Dr. Tim is teaching me to go into circles and he makes me wear a very special THINGIE on my back. I think it's to hold my insides up because it is a LOT of work.

                I miss my foalhood and all my BB friends--and I remember my my birthday will be soon and I will be a young Stallion ... and one day I will go for HOOCHIEBUCKETTRAINING! Whatever that is...but my Mom keeps threatening to 'cutthemoff' Mama Coreenie ... what does that mean? Will you ask Herr Papa Daddy the next time you have a vision?

                I loff you Mama Coreenie, and Oncle Woody and Aunti Portia. I miss you lots.

                :-( <----that is me making a sad face because I miss you.

                    The fruitbat thing actually came up when someone said "WTF?" - and (I think) someone else didn't know what it meant. Or somehow alternative meaning for it were solicited.

                    To which I randomly responded - WTF?="Where's the fruitbat?"

                    Apparently, it was popular. Hehehehe. I looked for the original topic, but gave up. The fruitbats have shown up many times since then, and even have names now.

                          How many of us, when we get very excited about something, have said "AY CARAMBA"!

                          I have found myself saying it on occasion and then looking around furtively, hoping that no one from COTH might be near enough to hear me and know why I am saying it.

                            The Porch was orginally invented on the old Equisearch bb, as were the pink pills, the rocking chair, and the wonders of baleing (baling?) twine and duct tape. They moved over here with the exodus when the old E-search boards exploded after a software/format change. They occasionally reemerge when old-E-searchers get together (such as the many-named one whose current incarnation is Onyx the Pony and me.)

                                What the Fruitbat came along when one lady was going on and on and on... ETC about how rude someone had been ot her, and though she repeatedly used WTF in her rant, she spent much of the rant complaining that this woman kept swearing at her, and she would NEVER swear because she doesn't use that kind of language.

                                To which, inevitably, someone asked 'Well what do YOU think 'WTF' means then?'

                                    Hootinannies can be anything from a stallion's nuts to extra brushes laying around to stupid people. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

                                    So hootinannies is a noun, whereas Shoosh (my favourite word) is the everything verb! I get it now, you've made my life so much easier.

                                    "Excuse me, could you shoosh these hootinannies for me?"

                                    And Coreene, Willem's post to Le Duc about the birds and the bees is my all time favourite post. It had me laughing for days afterwards, and it still makes me giggle whenever it's brought back up.

                                          I was sitting on The Porch (1) with George Morris discussing whether it was worse to chip and peck or nump (2) and toled (3) to the stinking flounder (4) jump at Spruce Meadows. Suddenly, George started to swipe at his head in an aghasted (5) and attackative (6) way, shrieking in that revoled (7) way of his, "get Aunt Esther's purse (8), the fruitbats (9) have escaped from their hoochie bucket (10)!" I grabbed the nearest hoo hoo (11), thinking, 'le tit be (12)' a false alarm because George was quite allergic to fruitbats and left untreated often escalated into a full blown Inverness Problem (14), a potentially fatal gnome which was harder to cure than a beaver drilling (15) through peeps (15). I said a little pray, 'dear oh mein gott in himmel (16), I know they spank monkeys (17) in Virginia (18) with wedding tackles (19), but please, if you take the fruitbats away, I promise to never, ever, eat another baby (20).
