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!

            Nena is getting her Christmas massage and chiropractic on Mon. Glad to know it is a wanted gift! I will certainly take all your other suggestions under advisement, you see I am a very bad mommy and spoiled her with sooooooo many treats that she has an attitude problem now and her other mommy (my daughter) is mad at me! We hope to resume treats soon, when she realizes everytime someone looks at her does not mean its treat time. She will be getting some lovely clothes for the holidays (despite getting a complete wardrobe when she came to live with us in Sept.) Any suggestions on what color saddlepad will look good on a redhead? The ones from our black TB look awful on her so its time to take away the hand me downs and get her some of her own.She is dutch but sounds a lot like you .Though she is still only a baby (5) maybe you would like her phone number. She is quite smashing and if you like athletic girls she's for you! Well, thanks for the help and have a wonderful holiday.

              Dear, dear, Willem;

              Why you know how much I adore men with accents! Especially older men as handsome as you! I bet you would make quite the stud!

              I promise to pay you a special Christmas visit if you hang some misteltoe from your stall door. How I would just LOVE to steal a kiss from you!

              Plus, I want you to promise to share all of your Christmas goodies with me. My mom, she hardly feeds me enough. I don't know why she insists on cursing when trying to get the girth on - I mean I am a svelt 52" on a 15.3 hand frame - I think those are the same measurements as Barbie's horse! Sheesh! I have never been into the supermodel TB waif look anyway.

              And now that you know my size, feel free to lavish me with gifts. I have been eyeing a particular burgandy dress sheet that would go wonderful with my firey red hair and fair complextion. My mom is too cheap to buy it for me. Instead she insisted on buying me a little brother - and I didn't even ask for one!

              I told my mom of my plans to come visit you. She called you my sugar daddy. But I told her that was the whole reason I was going to visit you - for your sugar cubes your mom promised you.

              Until later my dear Willem.

              Carrots and Apples,

              Jade

                      Willem,

                      Quite the gentleman, you've just sent mares into a frenzy, coast to coast. Does Jade have your heart? Or are you a free agent? The mares are champing at their bits to know! I will print out your answer, and show it to the bachelorettes in Philadelphia. There's some nice Main Line blueblood around here. Please include your best head shot if you are, indeed, available so they can put a face to that very appealing accent.

                      * * *

                      Quad A, every day.

                        If you haff been a verrie verrie good boy this year, you might even get a visit from us and your doggie pal Lucy in a week or so!

                        I think your holiday gift suggestions were wonderful. I'm sure all the other COTH bb horses will be most appreciative of your efforts and will pass your list on to the appropriate people so that they get lots of great gifts as well!!

                                        Willem am posting this for Chuck......

                                        Yo Will, cool accent. Bet the chicks dig it! My person is posting this, well she's rewritten it a bit too. Hey, got lots and lots of ponies in my barn. Cool ones too, plus this snooty tooty WB. Big gurl, think she may have an accent if she ever stops telling me not to do this, or not to do that. She kinda hisses it, under her breath. UGH bossy one. Kept telling me how I needed to grow up. Yeah, like she's had my life. Finally have a home, where I can just be me. Been such a good boy it hurts. Need to play with my pony pals. They know how to have fun. And ya know, people don't tell them to grow up! Any way, think I'm getting a big hot bran mash with molasses, carrots & apples. Boy, my lips are just smacking thinking of it.
