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 e-mailed and left a message this afternoon. Haven't heard back from anyone yet. The ad is still up, but that doesn't always mean anything.

                I had promised my SO when I quit my job to do the farm full time that the "free" horses wouldn't out number the paying boarders - good thing he's near sighted! If they all just keep moving around...

                        I met this woman and the horses - legit

                        After six years of lurkdom on this forum, I'm finally coming out of my "lurky-lu" closet to post on this thread. These horses are within 20 miles of me and I felt "called" to respond to her need.

                        I feel that I know most of you already - and I realize that none of you have ANY idea who I am. I am always most impressed at the generosity and genuine empathy expressed by the posters on these threads regarding needy horses (usually the same folks). So, here is my report for what it's worth:

                        I called, left polite message offering assistance and support, she called me back. I drove over there at her request. She's legit, very nice woman. She has several VERY NICE horses in LOVELY shape.

                        She actually took these horses as a favor to someone some time ago. Got them in good shape - someone here locally offered to give them a good home, she let them go. Everything was good for awhile, then he developed "other interests" and according to her, she noticed they were being "starved down". She actually WALKED these horses several miles back to her place as no trailer was available. She has had them now just over a week. Her place is clean and well-kept, hayracks are full and the horses were content.

                        Pooh is "loffly" ole man, was definitely a nice well-trained mount in the past. Even several hundred pounds down and very tired, he has that "tb carriage".
                        Eye is clean, but he's definitely blind on left, has some rainrot. Otherwise seems in decent shape. I took MoCaraid's new plaid Landa (Christmas gift from my kids) with me just in case the situation was dire, and ended up loaning it to Pooh. He stood like a stone, even when the leg straps had to be altered to fit. Honest to Heaven, he must have worn something like it
                        in the past because he took on the "well it's about time someone gave me some respect" stance and raised that aristocratic head - and I wept. He needs a blanky.

                        Guss was born blind - she said "pig-eye"? Had been trained for trail work. He can see shadows, has lovely temperament, wants lovin', needs groceries. Followed us like a puppy but very respectfully. Would appreciate a blanket.
                        They both need farrier and dentistry.

                        She works hard to keep her own horses well cared for (and they are!). She cannot keep these two - wants to find safe, loving forever home for them where she can keep in touch and feel that they are well cared for.
                        A place where they could be loved on by children is her dream for them.

                        SunkissedAcres, Beastie Slave - ya'll would love these guys! They've been together for years and depend on each other for support. VERY kind horses.

                        I have offered to pay for coggins & health certificates. Meeting her this afternoon when vet comes. I am willing to haul them a reasonable distance
                        when the paperwork is in order, will take approximately two weeks.
                        I did explain to her that a rescue umbrella would give her an added layer of security for their future.

                        All in all, I feel they are in good hands and will be in much better shape by the time an appropriate new home is lined up and paperwork is ready.

                        I'm not a recognized rescue, just a horseowner who supports rescue efforts. This is a personal effort on my part to assist another horseperson who did the right thing for the horses.

                        I did a quick profile if ya'll want to check me out

                            I'll be in & out this weekend, but I'm in for trying to get these guys to a permanent home where they can live happily together. Lots of ideas kicking around....

                                  I know Mocariad I can vouch for her.

                                  We desperately need a place to take these horses to,I will definately add $$ to where ever they go.

                                  We do not have a hay shortage here,If anyone is traveling to the area they end up in,we can send hay.

                                  Any other ideas

                                    Thank You All - Hay Liz

                                    Oh my goodness! I'm surprised and gratified, and I really don't know WHAT else to say - but I'll try
                                    Thank you Liz ((HUGS))

                                    I called everywhere within a 5 county area and the ONLY blanket in any store was the Weaver for Pooh - one prayer answered

                                    We now have a blanket for Pooh, a very nice Weaver (78) navy/green trim job that he likes very much

                                    Guss NEEDS a tan/burgundy (72) and is a little put out, because he can smell that Pooh has something nice even if he can't see it.

                                    Cold drizzly rainy and their hips are sticking out catching the breezes
                                    The vet was called to an emergency so vetting was rescheduled for Tuesday/Wednesday.

                                    They both are in dire need of farriering (ahem, attn youknowwho) and dentistry. They are being well cared for and she will keep them until a good home is assured.

                                    Now, as to your very generous offers that have me in grateful tears. My understanding on this forum is that folks soliciting funds must be 501c3. That's not me. So I'm confloozled and I do NOT want to fall afoul of any rules. Specially on my very first thread PM me please, if that's allowed?

                                      Mich,,,"Our" farrier is in the Kingsland area on the 7th.

                                      Although I would rather see them on their on their way somewhere before then.

                                      On another note ,,I have an excellent source for tift 85 if anyone is coming up I 75 we can send the odd bale[round bale full size = $50.00 ,on up to where-ever these kids might end up.

                                        Kingsland - Feb 7

                                        Liz, could "our" farrier ink them in please? It will take at least that long to get the paperwork together.

                                        And we're lookin' for that dentist too, so they'll look all spiffy when they get to their new digs ya know

                                        As to the hay, I could probly find room for at least one round and a few squares in my "limousine" if we're going I75. Heck, if I tack the rear tack out we could get two rounds plus the horses - at least we could try - if that would sweeten the deal

                                          We have to find someone to take them first.

                                          After that we will work on sending hay + $$ to help support them.

                                          I know we have folks on here willing to help

                                          But first we have to find a safe haven for them.

                                          At the moment ,nobody is stepping up for them
