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!

        Now, let me type "Kevin" into this and try googling it and seeing if we get the six degrees of separation. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

        • RHF - I vote for Dixies in Washington STate. It is proper BBQ because the guy who runs it is from Louisiana. It used to be a garage, but the restaurant part got too popular (how redneck is that?).

          When you going to come visit - I have some prospects for you to view.

                  • Original Poster

                    Sorry I've been gone for a while. I made the mistake of reading the "Not for the weak stomach-WTF" thread and decided to experiment to add some excitement for Mr Jetsmom and me..
                    So First I bought a duck. Not just ANY duck. This was the Marilyn Monroe of ducks. I took it to an expensive bird vet for a check up, but I think the vet was a Quack. Then I stopped by Walgreens and Picked up the "Warming KY jelly". Well, that was a mistake. There we were...Me in my Dairy Milk maid outfit and Mr Jetsmom in his farmer overalls with one pissed off duck, and gooey feathers stuck everywhere! THen the "Warming" part kicked in and the ducks A$$ started to get the same smell,( minus the A la 'Orange sauce) as the duck dinner in the French restaurant we like to visit. We now had 1 bare a$$ed, irate duck in a feather-strewn house. The duck got loose, so we just opened the doors figuring he'd leave. Unfortunately, at about the same time a flock of migrating ducks was flying by and heard the comotion and started coming into the house. Then the local PETA rep was driving by and saw the duck-catastrophe. He quickly organized a sit-in protest with 18 other PETA supporters. The neighbors saw all of the people and smelled burning duck and thought we were throwing a party, and didn't invite them so they called the police. The police showed up and took one look at my milking maid outfit and MR Jetsmom's overalls, the 18 people sitting out front and all the ducks and they thought we were running a farm without a proper business license so they fined us 1500.00.
                    It took me 3 days to remove all of the ducks and feathers, and I hadn't had a chance to ride, so when I finally did, I got bucked off. My Dr recommended water therapy, so we flew to the Bahamas and went snorkling. That's where I saw the Bottle Nosed Dolphin....
                    I remembered that Dolphins are supposed to be fun...
                    So I quickly pointed him out to Mr Jetsmom. We got the brilliant idea of rubbing tuna all over Mr Jetsmom's body to attract the Dolphin. Once properly scented, Mr Jetsmom dove into the sea seeking aquatic bliss. Well, you know what else likes Tuna????? Manatees. You know those 800 lb slow moving mammals that look like a cross between a walrus and a brick wall...Yeah, them. Well, that 'ol Manatee sure took a liking to Mr Jetsmom. Last I saw, they were heading out somewhere into the Gulf Stream with Mr Jetsmom screaming... Me? I'm back home with a really nice tan, waiting for the life insurance to pay up, so I can purchase some more Gypsy Vanners.

                    PS- the duck says Quack!

                    • I've decided to come out of the bathroom...(actually, I was at the movies with a friend but the bathroom sounds much better!)

                      cSi -- But everyone else knows about Rambo so why don't other people have websites dedicated to him? Damn Norwegians!

                      jetsmom -- What is the duck's name?! Is he cute? Can we breed it to Snappy Pants horse, Snap? Sorry to hear about Mr. Jetsmom...but I hear manatees throw good parties!

                      • Wow, I am so impressed with myself. I just sneezed while I had my mouth crammed full of rice cracker, and everything stayed inside my mouth. It took some effort, and I think one of my eyeballs popped out instead, but I'm so proud!

                        Should I call a vet?

                            • And with that.....work begins. I wonder if I bribe my boss with flax seed cookies he will let me leave early. Or maybe he will turn into a horse and then....oh never mind, I know where you guys will take that statement.

                              So the truck full of Mexicans and myself have set up shop in NJ (why am I back here again??). They are very savy business men and they play our clients very well while they kill me on the profits. So now I'm riding 15 horses a day and teaching 20 lessons to kids who can't ride at all. Oh well, I just have to build up my business again. My old boyfriend the BNT came by to check up on me and his baby and found her riding the horses for me. He freaked out and said I was exploiting her talents at such a young age and he should be in charge of her training. I considered the black mail card and though better of telling him the truth that a tripod is the father.

                              The foalt is getting amazing! I've got to bring him to a show soon. We have really figured the leaping thing out and now he can extend and collect. It is a little bouncy but he can jump the barn!

                              I need some advice.....all of my horse's hooves seem to be falling off. I have had them in stacked shoes from day one and I never pick their feet out and they just swam for like a week straight and then were turned out on mud. That's OK right? How should I fix this?

                                  Snap - get a chiro out IMMEDIATELY and give them BOSS (duh) and garlic. Then since you are so poor, take the feet that have already fallen off and give the glue factory a call. Don't worry, you didn't do anything wrong, it's that damn sand in the ring in NZ. My barrel racing fillygelding's entire leg fell off, consider yourself lucky

                                    What is our venue this weekend? How about a circus since all of these horses are ready for the freak show?

                                      So it is like 130 degrees here not counting the humidity. How hot is too hot to ride? And conversly, how cold is too cold to ride, especially if you don't have an indoor?

                                        • Oh, Snap, thats easy.

                                          he is sweating because you are letting him drink too much water.

                                          Dump out all of his water buckets, and empty the water trough.

                                          If you don't let him drink then he won't sweat, and THEN you can ride.

                                          That way you don't get your TS breeches sweaty/dirty.

                                          I mean, really, don't you have a BNT to tell you all of this when they get out of bed with the judges????
