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 know this isn't horse related - but wanted to tell people that if you lose your dog - check the local shelters daily (morning and night).

      My Pyr as a young puppy, followed a dog off my property and got himself lost. Actually a lady found him and rather than advertise him, she called the sheriff's dept. and had them call the pound who picked up this huge 6 month old puppy (solid white, about 85 lbs and very tall). I hunted for Amos for days, calling the pound and describing the dog every day - always told "we don't have no dog like that here". I got a feeling and drove to the pound, and walked through and called him by name and he began barking..I was lucky I found him after being told there was no such dog at the shelter. That has been my only experience in "losing" a dog..I promptly fenced the front of the property and taught Amos the boundaries and he's never left the property since. I think it scared him so badly he decided wandering wasn't what it was cracked up to be.

      But please check daily - twice a day if you can - as no one could mistake a nearly grown pyr (even a muddy one) and I almost lost him. The pounds cannot keep dogs very long as there are so many of them..and even though they do try through petfinder - many dogs are put to sleep before their owners can get them back.

      I am glad the little corgi got placed/adopted.

        Excellent advice, sidepasser. There ARE shelter dogs everywhere and they need the help of good owners (and horse owners TEND to be GREAT owners). Every day, I get email alerts out of GA about dogs in need -- the problem there is HUGE!

        For example, there are 37 PUPPIES in danger of being euthanized on Friday (the rest next Wednesday) in Chatooga County Shelter (on the other side of GA close to the TN border). See link below. The dog you are looking for is out there! Check Petfinder and I guarantee you will find what you want with a little patience

        The Catoosa County, GA Animal Shelter is located on 101 Almond Trail in Ringgold, GA (30736). Shelter hours are 8-4:45 M-F, closed for lunch from 12-1. Phone: 706-935-2454.

        Adoption fee for a furry friend is $60, which includes a certificate for the pet's spay/neuter surgery and office wellness check at a participating vet. Already altered pets are also $60.00.
        When life gives you lemons. . .say &%^# you lemons! And throw those lemons back in life's face so that it will be afraid of you and won't try that crap again!

          Where do I find the Corgi shelters?

          My dear friend just lost his 1 year old beloved Corgi to kidney disease and he is thinking it is now time to recuse another and fill the hole left in his life. He is looking a Corgi that will welcome the chance to have two playmates and a Cat friend. My friend loves his animals and take exceptional care of them. His Vet has probably built a house thanks to him. If anyone can guide me to sites in NC that an adult Corgi needs rescuing, I would appreciate the information. Thank you.

            Your best bet is just to keep an eagle eye on Petfinder.com and search in your area. The other option is to contact any corgi rescues near you and let them know you are interested in providing a home. The Corgi-L board also seems to keep an eagle eye on corgi's in shelters too and you could try joining that group and posting your location and interest in providing a home to a wayward corgi.

              I think Patsy was saved by a sheltie rescue in Columbia SC. The picture looks like the same dog. Go to Petfinder. On the left side of the page toward the bottom, there is a place to look up shelters and rescues state by state. Put in Columbia SC and see if you can find the sheltie rescue's web site. If this isn't the same "Patsy" that's OK. This is a lovely pem girl that needs a home. There is a video that shows how cute and sweet she is. Also, you can contact Palmetto Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club. They have a rescue page on their web site. The page hasn't been updated since mid-Nov., but the info is there. The lady in charge of their rescue lives in NC. Good luck! Give a deserving corgi (or other homeless dog) the best gift there is-----a loving home!!!!!!!!
