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!

    Ooops, just saw this thread, TheJenners!

    Mountain Vet Suply is in Fort Collins, CO. They carry the Gateway products, Vita-Flex products and Corta-Flx products. I think they also have Cosequin and a few others. No catalogue--this is a small, local company--but they're very nice to deal with, and will ship to you. I don't think they'll ship to Canada, after having some trouble getting Gastrogard across the border. Could be wrong on that, though.

    Their phone number is 970.484.2200.

      PP -- you know, I think that's where I bought mine rambo wug last year! Sorry OM!

        What size wug do you need? Do you care if it is the new version or the old one. Equine collections is currently having a sale. Equiteric bought a whole bunch of the last model and they are selling them 20% bellow retail but they only have certain size, I think I saw lots of 81" and 84" no 78" and some other sizes as well.

        Do you care for a rhino wug? I just bought a heavy weight one with full neck for $149 from Dover.

        Hope this helps!

          YAY!! Now I have their number again! That stuff you recommended is working great! She tried to kill me on not one, but two trail rides!

            Rambo Wug Lites for $190 from the www.tackroominc.com

            They are the new ones with the reflective tabs and boy do they fit nicely.

            Note: This was not a replacement Rambo. The other ones I've had for five years and they still do their jobs nicely!

              Well thanks everyone.

              Panic over.

              I paid the recommended price for a new RHINO heavyweight. But I earned LOTS of points from my tack store lady, who is pretty neat nonetheless! Good to give her the business.

              Anyway... back to our regularly scheduled program.

                I found a place on here that sells Conquer the large sized syringe for about 15$ per syringe.
                But I cannot find the website.
                Anyone care to post it?

                  Aw, god, Bumpkin. I remember that price. But I don't remember the site, either.

                  MV has it for about that, I think.


                  • #29
                    Okay--Jeffers has the large (60-mL) tubes for 15.95.

                    Farmvet has them for $14 and change, but you have to buy 10 at a time.

                      I'm going to try and do a list for everyone.

                      See if this works:

                      I'll move this to the first post if everyone thinks it's a good idea.

                      BTW, Country Supply, (http://www.countrysupply.com/) has GREAT GREAT supplement prices!!! I just checked them out. Great MSM prices!

                        Oldenburg Mom I have been eyeing the Country Supply site for some time now but never heard anyone talk about it until now. I was wondering if you have heard good things about Four Flex offered on their site? Thank you!

                          Nope. But it looks good! Their prices are great and I phoned them this morning to see if they had any HylaMotion (no) and they were very polite—even suggested I speak with a supervisor!

                          Anyone else out there????

                            Thank you as I am torn between this product and Hylaron OTC; but it comes down to cost now and I think the second best product for me is the Four Flex. I plan to add Hyaluronic Acid to it as it has none, but does anyone know how much Vitamin C is recommended for best results, is 1,000 mg sufficient?

                            I have a tack link link that I have bought several close out sweat sheets and chaps. Very quick delivery as well. Tack Wholesale

                              Yeah, I just checked out Hylaron OTC. WOW! What a price tag!

                              ANYONE out there got a good price for GLC 5500? The best I came up with was $114.

                              Can anyone do better?

                                I just got my Four Flex (gonna give it to the dog too I asked and they gave me an amout to feed him. I found the Four Flex seemed to have everything I wanted in an acceptable dosage. I can't remember where I ordered it from but I paid $114 for 2 tubs that last 2 months.

                                I had also gotten Hylamotion at the tack store 1lb for $44 . I'm almost out of the MSM and Corta Flex HA I was giving my horse and when it's done I'm switching. I'll let you know how the combo works out.

                                  buff4948 I would love to know how your combo works as I have about 20 days left of my current supplement and really want to start on the Four Flex with Hylamotion after....thanks so much.

                                    Hey--somebody call Mountain Vet and see what their price is on HylaMotion. I'd do it, but I need to go collapse, as I've been awake for 48 hours. Damn teachers and their exams all on the same day. &lt;grumble&gt; &lt;yawn&gt;

                                    And remember, they have Corta-RX with HA and Collagen for like $70 something. Works out to be under $20 a month.

                                      My understanding is the highest quality Hyluronic is approx $1000.00 a pound.

                                        I used four flex before switching over to Reitsport w/HA.

                                        Four flex is a great product. It worked well for a TB that had bone chips and arthritis in his fetlocks.

                                        I think the price has gone up for it since I have used it.

                                        Country supply is the best. I constantly order from them, and from American Livestock supply. Customer service is great at both places - Country supply has a better shipping offer. They also do a price match guarantee, which I have used successfully twice. They don't have a huge selection, but they do have great prices!

                                          Has anyone tried the this pure HA liquid?


                                          I was curious to see if this would really work - seems like a dropper full is not very much.
