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!

  • So I told Glimmer what was going on with Willem yesterday, and his german side came out (he is half Hanno, half TB you know).

    I tried to write it down, I think he said: "erhalten Sie die hohen Oberseiten der convers, sie sind am bequemsten!" Which I think has something to do with Willem's choice of conver's shoes...

    and then he said something like: saugt Füße Schmerz. Wann Sie, die Füße besser, ich glauben nimmt Sie tanzend mit meinen Damefreunden, O.K.? Which I think is something about feet and dancing later when they are better... I am not sure, because I tried to repeat it to my mother in law who is fluent but she just looked at me oddly and started laughing. So who knows how badly I butchered the language...

    Then his TB side came out, and he is jingling for Willem like he is coming down the homestretch at the Kentucky Derby. It caught on, and now all 10 horses around him are jingling and its' spreading fast...

    Take care of yourself Coreene, so you can take care of Willem. That is muy importanto!


    • Coreene & Willem~

      Vegas (who also is a big chestnut horse dealing with sore front feet) and I are keeping you both in our thoughts! We sure understand what it's like to wait on pins and needles to learn our fate.

      Sending the warmest, strongest wishes that Willem will be feeling much better soon and comfort and strength to see you both through!


      • Lots of jingles from the East Coast Willem. We could hear them last night as we sat out on the porch for a few moments. They're coming from everywhere, even from places that haven't posted yet. We're with you every minute, Coreene, and hope that brings you some comfort.
        They don't call me frugal for nothing.

        • Willem - you MUST try LaminaSaver!!!! I know your mother, Coreene, is doing everything humanly possible for you, but please ask her about the LaminaSaver! My good friend has a 5 year old filly who had EVERYTHING wrong with her - BAD puncture wound, foundered BACK foot, contracted tendon surgery on both front legs....her latest Xrays showed that she was actually rotating back upward, and she is totally sound, and being ridden on the flat. Anyway, as everyone else has said - we are Jingling for ya!!

          • My heart is in my throat, I am deeply humbled by all your kind words, wishes, love and jingles.

            We are all doing our very best, and it ain't over 'til the fat lady sings. And I ain't planning no singing yet!



            • How's he feeling today?

              (((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))) and love to you both. Hang in there, and if there is anything you need, please let me know, okay?

              love ya

              You can't have everything. Where would you put it all?


              • I mostly lurk here, but I loff you, Willem!

                Jingles from central NY!!

                (And Booger vibes, of course!!)


                • Dear Coreene and Willem,

                  I am hoping & praying for you both..
                  Hope and positive thoughts are being sent your way..

                  Hope, hope, hope for Willem!!...


                  • Sending more prayers and jingles to Willem!


                    • Best wishes from VA - we're jingling - actually, I was jingling until Carson took the curb chain and took off with it - but that probably still counts, as it jingles over the dog's head, down the stairs, and into the kiddie pool.... And my mother wants ANOTHER grandchild???????


                      • Jingles from GA - hope things take a turn for the better.


                        • Big Jingles for our friend Willem! And, of course, for you Colleene!

                              • Jingles and best wishes from over the water. Don't know what to say really but I'm really hoping for the very best here.

                                    • Jingles and hugs to both of you. I would say that as long as he's bright eyed and begging, you can count yourself among the top 50%. My 30 year old QH with navicular is dealing with the abscess from hell right now. 3 weeks and counting.
                                      You're both in my thoughts.

                                      • Willem: I am jingling as hard as I can and now that my two girls are with me, they are jingling too. Marple is injured and will never be sound again - she says that the lots of loving Coreene gives you will get you through!

                                        • Sure hope Willem is feeling better. I cared for a pony with Cushings and he foundered very easily. Sadly, his owner would insist on feeding him terribly bad things (the mashed up apples from making cider, fresh cut lawn grass, corn husks, etc, in large amounts).

                                          Our own dear Galley had Cushings as well, but never foundered so we were spared that agony.

                                          Hang in there, Coreene.
