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!

          Roll on down to PaulaM post and take a look at the ones there. There are many posts in archives, you might search "treat" and "Cookies"

          I made a batch yesterday after reading PaulaM post. I forgot my party gift for our hostess today. Bottle of wine ( it is a wine tasting) for her and cookies for the horses.

          I didn't have molasses so used Cane Syrup ( golden syrup) that I had left over from a cake recipie. I didnt have enough dry stuff so ran to the store for oatmeal and corn meal.
          Got home and discovered a bag of corn meal on back of shelf. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]
          Let the dough sit overnight and baked this AM.

          Easy as can be.

          There are now two bags of cookies, one for Susan's horses and Hummm, whom should I give the other bag to? Hummmm [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

            I have a whole book full of horse treats from soups to desserts [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] One recipe that I still want to make but haven't yet is called beer bran mash. Here's the recipe if anyone out there wants to make it:

            8 cups of bran
            8 cups of oats
            Pinch of salt
            Hot water
            1 can of beer

            add enough hot water to moisten ingredients, add a pinch of sailt, mix and let steep for 30 minutes or until cool enough to eat. Before feeding, pour a can of fresh beer over the bran mash and feed.

            If anyone decides to try this, let me know it turns out!

              maybe Mr Elliot???? haha

              Poor Elliot had to endure my attempt last night.

              I loved the rolling them out in Kosher Salt, easy to make.
              I left in oven too long, and they are crunchy!!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

              Elliot sounded like he was crunching a big carrot eating them.

              I tried them on a few other horses and they liked them also.
              So I am going to repeat but not leave in oven too long this time [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                  I have now perfected my personal recipe THANK YOU to the Bumpkinette and Hoopoe.....

                  I bake for "Awesome Elliot" once a week now.

                  This is the recipe I use, very simple, so don't laugh.

                  4 to 5 Cups of Quaker Oatmeal

                  1 to 2 Cups of Molasses

                  2 to 3 Cups of Wheat Flour

                  Water, Beer or Apple Juice for moisture.
                  Corn Oil, a splash or two.

                  Sometimes I add some brown sugar.

                  Mix and add flour or moisture until you can roll into balls.
                  Then I roll the balls in a plate of Kosher Salt
                  Place on cookie sheet and smush into a 25 cent size flat cookie.

                  Bake at 350 degrees for 15 min.

                    Omalley Cat - I haven't tried beer bran mash, but in the summer I occasionally pour a beer over my horse's regular feed. She loves it. Everyone at the barn teases me about the brands of beer I give her. I don't like beer, so I have no clue what any of them taste like. I usually try to buy something in the middle price range or what's on sale.

                    Here's a cookie recipe
                    1 cup uncooked oatmeal
                    1 cup flour
                    1 cup shredded carrots (or applesauce)
                    1 tsp salt
                    1 tbls sugar
                    2 tbls vegetable oil
                    1/4 cup water
                    1/4 cup molassses

                    Mix ingredients in bowl with wooden spoon. Drop by teaspoonsful onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown in color. (They will be darker if you use dark molasses.) Store in the freezer as they will be fairly soft and mold if left too long. My dog friends like them as well.

                    I have a similar recipe for a larger quantity-
                    12 oz molasses
                    3 cups Quaker oats
                    3 cups whole wheat flour
                    1 cup corn oil
                    2 cups fruit or vergetables shredded fine

                        okay, here's mine:

                        Get in your car with at least one other person, who has a good sense of humor.

                        Drive to Denny's.

                        Order pancakes and a milkshake.

                        While the waitress isn't looking, steal all the sugar packets.

                        Pour liberally into your hand whenever you want to treat your horse.

                        *Note - works best if it is at least 11:30 pm.

                          when my sister and i were little we would make "salads" for our pony. we would just put a bunch of things in a bowl, like apples, cheerios, carrots, cereal, popcorn, crackers, etc, mix it all up, and add juice like apple juice and fruit punch. he really liked it!

                              Kosher salt is used in Koshering meat and chicken ( salt rub on meat and set for 1 hour then rinsed. I assume to pull out blood residues)

                              It has a larger grain than regular salt and smaller grain than rock salt. can make a crunchy salty crust on my cookies. You can also use coarse sugar if your pony has a sweet tooth.

                                  At Christmas I made both, and find the Kosher Salt much more appealing than the Sugar.
                                  The Sugar tended to get dark brown almost burnt looking, not that the horses minded.

                                  I also found them to be a wee bit stickier, and therefore less likely to fare well in one's pocket for an after lesson quick treat [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                                  The horses absolutely love the Kosher Salt on these cookies. They lick and lick after eating them. Quite cute [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

                                  Thank you Hoopoe for the Kosher Salt idea.
                                  May I add that Hoopoe is a Salt Connoisseur.

                                      They invariably get eaten by animals other than the horses.

                                        2 cups oatmeal (dry, Quaker type)
                                        1/3 cup honey* (Since I just bought molasses, I'm going to use that instead of honey tomorroe)
                                        1/2 cup molasses
                                        1 or more cups grated apples
                                        1 cup flour
                                        2 tbsp. vegetable oil
                                        2 cups water* (I'm probably going to use either apple juice, or I may try beer, we'll see)

                                        Preheat oven to 350� F. Mix all the ingredients, make into small (1") shapes and bake on cookie sheet for ~1hr.

                                        The reason I like it is because I have all the ingredients, and it looks good.
