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 am so sorry for your loss. From what I saw, Seger was a beautiful boy. I know paying for all costs must have been tough on you and you are a good kid to have taken so much on.

        I am very sorry that at such a young age you had to go through something as sad as this. But I know my little mare Suzy who we had to put down a few weeks ago was waiting up on the Rainbow Bridge for a tall handsome horse to escort her across. I am sure she will love your handsome seger.

                well, for my 700th post i will let y'all in about some info you may not know about Seger....

                He was sired by Supron wh i have heard was great but never got to see, out of a beauty of a bay mare named Cherry Wouldn't.

                His registerd name was Cherry Uppers, and while he did race he never won.

                just some tidbits of info.....

                            M-J,
                            Times like this are so very hard and I suck at knowing what to say in these moments. Somehow "Sorry" doesn't seem to be enough.

                            So, I have this poem that I got from a friend a long time ago during similar circumstances. It made me feel better and I every once and a while I find the need to share it with those who could use a little perspective...

                            I hope it will make you feel better too.


                            For A Little While

                            I'll lend you for a little while
                            my grandest foal, he said.
                            For you to love while she's alive,
                            and morn for when she's dead.

                            It may be one or twenty years,
                            or days or months, you see.
                            But, will you, till I take her back
                            take care of her for me?

                            She'll bring her charms to gladden you,
                            and should her stay be brief
                            you'll have treasured memories
                            as solace for your grief.

                            I cannot promise she will stay,
                            since all from earth return.
                            But, there are lessons taught on earth
                            I want this foal to learn.

                            I've looked the wide world over
                            in my search for teachers true.
                            And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes
                            with trust I have selected you.

                            Now will you give her your total love?
                            Nor think the labor vain,
                            nor hate me when I come
                            to take her back again?

                            I know you'll give her tenderness
                            and love will bloom each day.
                            And for the happiness you've known
                            forever-grateful stay.

                            But should I come and call for her
                            much sooner than you'd planned
                            you'll brave the bitter grief that comes
                            and someday you'll understand.

                              I'm so sorry MJ. Hang in there. It will hurt for a while. But it will get better. And I'll bet you have lots of happy Seger memories.

                                Hard to find the words to express my concern for you. Just know that we all care about you, and that, if you need to talk, I, and I am sure many others, will be willing to listen. My email is listed.

                                      I can say that I can relate very well, having had to lost three of my own in just two years, at least you know that Seger was loved until he had to leave you ... and you were there for him until the last and now he is playing and grazing in the fields among the stars with my Lacy, Addy and Cece. I will give all my horses a big hug for Seger tonight... don't think that tears will show weakness, have a good cry and give Thunder a big hug, Thunder will understand I find they always do! Take care M_J

                                        to hear about your loss.
                                        It's always devastating to lose a companion.
                                        At least you know thatyou did the right thing by your horse at the end
