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!

    Willem, I have a very, very special curb chain that I got just special for little Aiden. I like to think its jingles sent special prayers his way, and I hope it works for you too!

    Please get better!

      Poor Willem. Footsie problems suck. I wish you a quick and uncomplicated recovery.

      And hang in there, Coreene. You're earning yourself some good-karma credits as we speak. It's got to be that way - otherwise the lack of balance in the world would be too much to deal with.

          Dear Willem:

          I hope you are better soon and that the worse case scenario will be that you are soon wearing more expensive shoes than your mother.

                Thank you, you guys rock. If I could give you a big group hug I would, so stand right close to the computer screen and know my arms are OPEN THIS WIDE and that I am hugging you all.

                  Hang in there Willem. My boy Elliot has had a bad bout of sore tootsies over the past month... Last week he could barely walk his feet hurt so much... but he's feeling much better now, so hang in there. Tell you mother to hang on too... It can be really tough on mothers watching their boys have such a rough go... but it will get better, so just hang on.

                      This is another one of those reminders that stress falls into two categories:

                      1. Stress that helps you lose weight
                      2. Stress that grows your butt size

                      All I can say is that I left Mr. Atkins in the dust, but that the nachos from Carl's Jr are REALLY yummy.

                        I think the hardest part is when you have a spell where it gets a bit better every day and then you have a day where it is not. We dropped the Pentoxifylline down on Wednesday, but put it back up on Friday because it seemed like it was too soon. Then he seemed a bit better, but then last night and today it seemed a bit worse. I know that not every day will be stellar, but since I have never had a horse with this before, I have no idea what to expect.

                        Some of my fellow BBers have known about this since the beginning, and I am just SO blessed for all the encouragement and strength and support and advice that I have drawn from them.

                          We are all ******Jingle-Jangle-Jingle***** here for you! Can you hear all the curb chains ringing for you. The sound should be DEAFENING...

                          Manymany kusjes, hugs, loffs are being sent your way. Can you feel them yet? They are like big smooches for your tootsies!

                          Get better soon, lambchop.

                                You know, my very dear Willem, that there are many many jingles coming to you from up Rochester way. And many many


                                to your Mother (you loff her) too.

                                Stormy and Promise both say that you need to take your medicines like the good gentleman that you are, so that you can get better, and get that ice cream machine that you have wanted for so long.

                                      Herr Papa Willem Daddy,

                                      Are you sick? <Duc's lip is seen shaking and big tears are seen shining in his eyes>

                                      Are your hoofes hurtie? Do you want me to ask Dr. Tim if he can help you? I will ask my Dr. Timwiththekindhandsandsoftvoice if he will help you. He makes everything better for me when my dummy Mom does things wrong, which is ALLTHETIME.

                                      I am waving my special stick for you ... can you see it? That's because I am a yearling and don't have a curb chain yet.

                                      I am going to a horse convention this weekend andandandand if I get a butterfly I will send it STRAIGHT TO YOU AND YOUR FEETZ.

                                      I loff you, Herr Papa Willem Daddy. Please don't be sick ANYMORE.
