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!

      My little man Trafeer

      I will make a request but I would like to see what she does with it, how it will look because I have limited hair from his tail. I lost my little white 20 year old Arab gelding to a sudden and violent colic, speculation that it could have been a thrombosis colic from encysted damage. I am not much able to talk about it more, I only had him for 6 months and he had been starved and neglected/newby horse owners/poor care for 3 years.

      He was very special to me, I am in recovery from mold poisoning and I may have to be treated for Lyme also thus am more than a little overemotional these days.

      Thank you and your sweet daughter for the offer of this.

      Oh, sorry just saw the pm request.

        Hi!

        I tried to send you a PM but your box is full


        I would love to give one to my 10 yr old daughter. Almost 2 years ago, the day after my daughters 9th birthday, we lost a beloved family member. I owned this mare since she was born in 1985- she was definitely my beloved forever horse. We had many, many wonderful experiences together. When the time came for my daughter to start riding, Mare (yep, her barn name was Mare) happily accepted the job. She gave my daughter the opportunity to make mistakes and really learn how not only to ride, but how to care for horses. Mare was the first horse Lola ever showed. When my daughter was 7, Mare developed a heart murmur that was thought to be from her mitral valve. We retired her from riding but she was still the first one Lola went to visit, groom and love on. We had some school friends come to the barn for Lola's birthday party and Lola proudly introduced "first show horse". Mare had just turned 25 the week before. The day after Lola's birthday, the barn manager called me to tell me Mare had had a stroke. Upon arriving to the barn, I realized that it was time To say goodbye

        A couple of weeks after, Lola pulled out some pictures, Mare's JC papers and some scrapbook embellishments and made a beautiful poster size scrapbook page. It still hangs over her bed today.

        I know she would just love a bracelet to help her remember our beloved Mare. We did save some of her tail with the intention of having something made but to date have not been able to even open the envelope.

        Thank you so much for the opportunity to share our story with you

                Brock you are using this for advertising purposes for your bracelets and necklaces. Not good. I received a pm from you pricing your wares. This is a giveaway section. Pay COTH for advertising if this is what it is for.

                  I do indeed sell my bracelets and necklaces to support my private equine rescue. HOWEVER, I do not sell the bracelets and necklaces on this forum.
                  Several times I have offered bracelets that were overstock to COTH members FREELY on this forum. These bracelets are made from horsehair of our rescues.
                  When someone inquires about having a bracelet made FROM THEIR OWN HORSE"S HAIR, I respond to their inquiry. That is the case with you. You asked about having it done with your own horse's hair, and I responded to you.

                  Quote from your post: "I will make a request but I would like to see what she does with it, how it will look because I have limited hair from his tail. I lost my little white 20 year old Arab gelding to a sudden and violent colic, speculation that it could have been a thrombosis colic from encysted damage.

                  Oh, sorry just saw the pm request."

                  My response to you, sent so that I could send PICS so you could "see what she does with it, how it will look..." via email:
                  I am attaching pics of bracelets and necklaces we have done. I can also send you a sample if you wish. We do a rope braid, with silverplate findings and lobster clasp (magnetic available), colored glass bead and heart charm. I can work with any amount of hair, as long as it is long enough to do the entire bracelet length. Otherwise I need to do the bracelet in two pieces (nice, but different style than usual). Our prices are $20/bracelet, $40/necklace including unique stone pendant. If you would like a sample, please email me at this address so I don't miss it.
                  The giveaway bracelet has found a home, and we were moved to send out a second one to a wonderful woman battling cancer.
                  We also accept trades of usable tack for our rescues in trade for jewelry..."

                  I do not understand your personal attack on me, as I do not feel that I have disobeyed the rules here. At no point did I post prices on this thread, until just now while defending myself. I do not wish to do the jewelry for you in light of this.

                  (Moderator, please close this thread. The FREE bracelet has been rehomed. Thank you).
