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!

  • Sunkissed Acres adoptables please.

    Besides our usual nonrideables we have a lot of horses looking for good homes. Rideable, useable horses. Some requiring more experienced riders and some good for beginners or husbands.

    9 yr old Black Arab Gelding
    9 yr old Walker mare
    2 Draft crosses
    1 horse used for driving (unknown breed)
    Older bomb proof mare
    13 yr. old TB H/J (home pending)
    8 yr old AppxQH mare, (experienced rider)

    Please consider homing the homeless if you are looking. All our horses come with a guarantee. We guarantee that if you dont like the horse, it can come back. We cant possibly know everything about these horses and they change according to the situations they are put in, we rely upon there owners to tell us the truth...............but certainly everyone of these guys is nice to deal with, has no major issues and has probably only touched upon its potential. In the right homes, these guys bloom.
    Our horses are not seen as the old and disabled they may have become, but rather as the mighty steeds they once believed themselves to be.

        horses

        Are they free to good home?
        To ride a horse is to borrow freedom.

            The first five horses listed on here are all or were residents of a kids church camp. There is no interest in operating it any longer and so the horses were given up. All are apparently well broke, they are all kind. I met the horses, just have not found a way to move all five at one time. The drafts are app. 16.1 16.2 although they are heavy so look larger.

            I need to move them quickly so will post pics the second I have a way to move them. Fernie, the horses are in Griffin so not far from you now I dont think.

            The horses are available for the usual tax deductible donation. We will get them farriered, coggins and shots up to date. We cant do that for free either so, your donation covers only that expense. So yes, I guess they are free.

              Oh to add, the AppxQH is very very good looking for those interested. Experienced rider because she is only 8 and sort of green to some things. Nice horse.

                      My BO is interested in the 9 year old walker. She was going to try to google your site to contact you, but could you PM me with your email address in case she doesn't find it?

                      Nevermind, she emailed to say she talked to you earlier today.

                          Hey there, my email is sunkissedacres@charter.net. Not sure why the web wont change that thingy on the front page. New website is done and almost running.

                          Sidepasser is delivering all the horses on Saturday. They will be available immediately after that so keep in touch.

                          I hope I have responded to all that enquired but please, because I get many many phone calls and emails, you must call or write me back so I remember who you are. Coth names and real names dont add up on the phone.

                          Thanks so much for the interest. These guys deserve a chance and I absolutely cant afford another horse.

                            The trailer leaves the farm at 8:00 am and arrives at 9:30 am on Saturday at the horse's barn near Griffin.

                            I will be meeting with the person who has the horses to load and go to Sunkissed Acres. I am willing to stop enroute with Lori's approval, if someone has qualified to adopt to save someone a trip and gas.

                            Adoptors would have to work with Lori; I cannot speak for her. I would need an address for delivery no LATER than Friday at 6:00 pm, confirmed by Lori, so I can plan my trip in the most economical manner possible.

                            I am willing to work with whomever lives between Griffin and Summerville or Summerville and LaGrange/or even over into Alabama 50 miles if that assures these horses can be rehomed, for no fee. Sorry I can't haul to Nebraska or Wyoming..lol..but am willing to be the drop off service for anyone who wants to adopt along the route. I will be coming up 75 North, and will return home via Highway 27 South. So anywhere reasonable along the way is acceptable.

                            You can't beat free transport these days..so anyone looking, this is likely to be about the best deal ever. Sorry I don't have pics, I'm taking my guy sight unseen - what I gets is what I gots..lol. I'm sure he will work out just fine.

                            Anyway hook up with Lori, make arrangements and then Lori can pm me the address for dropoff.

                            Thanks all,
                            Sidepasser - horse transporter extraordinaire.

                                      Ok folks - I'm going to be leaving out at around 8 this morning with the trailer..I did not hear from anyone who wanted to adopt one of these horses, but if you think you would like one and are having a hard time deciding..

                                      Get in touch with Lori asap!! and she has my cell phone number and can call and give me the information.

                                      Lori is OVERRUN with non adoptables at Sunkissed Acres and these horses are rideable, which is what everyone wants these days..no known health issues, I do believe they are due for a trim, but that's just a drop in the gas tank if you had to haul one. The owner stated that all were in good health..so you won't be getting a lame, broke down horse.

                                      I have no way to post once I leave the house here, so all contact will need to go through Lori..I will call her once I have them loaded (all load well I was told), and tell her the situation with the horses (height, health, general attitude)..but today is the load and go day so if you are on the fence teetering, a little information might be enough to tip you towards adopting.

                                      Best I can do short of riding them, and I won't have time to do that since it is a long ways to Lori's from where they are located and I have to pick up one when I get there and make the trip back. All told about 8.5 hours of driving.

                                      Anyway off to load the trailer and hit the road!

                                        1 horse used for driving (unknown breed)
                                        Older bomb proof mare
                                        13 yr. old TB H/J (home pending)
                                        8 yr old AppxQH mare, (experienced rider)

                                        Any pics of the draft crosses? Are they mares or geldings, ages? GA is kinda far for me but it might be doable - I'm sure they will find homes quick all of them. I used to live in Columbus, GA and would go back in a heartbeat.
