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!

  • Recue mares need homes right away!

    I recently went to a horse rescue and found myself with two 4 1/2 month old foals. Bonnie and Clyde.

    Their mothers are in horrible condition and in dire need of a home. Please let me know if you can help. Both are JC registered TB mares but I doubt will be sound broodmares for at least 2 years, if ever!

    I have adopted Bonnie and Clyde. They will stay with me until I find a good home for them. I do not do rescue but could not turn my back on these two babies.

    Please meet Bonnie and Clyde. Clyde, the colt is the darker of the two and also the sicker.

    I'm looking for pictures of their mothers as we speak. I know someone out there will be able to offer these mares a home...

    Here's the mares. I don't know which foal goes with which mare. I do know that both mares are about 7-8 years old, approx. 16h, JC registered TB mares. Please let me know if you can offer any help with these girls. Both are located in Northern Ca. TIA

      I have adopted both of these mares babies but am unable to adopt them too. Here is a letter from Betsy Bueno who rescued them. Thank you Betsy!

      Here are the TWO Mares. Both are around 7-8 years old. Bay Mare off the track a few years ago and broodmare for the last 3 years. Black Mare was suppose to be a prior rescue, also being used as broodmare for last 3 years. Both are suppose to be broke to ride. Both are extremely depressed.

      Please contact me if you have a home for them. Both are located in Petaluma, Northern, Ca.

      This yearling is also available.

        Misita -- So these mares are at a rescue now and are safe, is that correct? Could you post the name and contact info for the rescue in Northern CA that has these mares, in case someone's interested in the mares?

        Thanks for taking in the foals!

          Do you mean they need to be rescued from the rescue?

            Please contact Betsy Bueno for more information.

            No, they do not need to be rescued from the rescue. I do not have all the details. They are currently safe at a boarding farm, not a rescue center. They do need to go to homes where they'll get a lot of personal attention that they aren't getting from the boarding situation that has taken custody of them.

            They do need to go to homes where they'll receive special care right away.

              Update on the mares

              I just got this e-mail from Betsy Bueno who is trying to find homes for these two mares.

              Chris,
              I'm starting to get worried. She is talking Auction Yard now with these TWO broodmares. In their shape, they will go to meat. The two babies 1 and 1 1/2 yr olds, I don't know. She didn't mention these two. I'm going to pick up the Percheron and Belgium today or tomarrow and get them out of there for now so they don't go to auction next Monday. The rain is coming and I'm worried about those mares not having shelter or fat to keep warm.

              Betsy

                The mares are safe!

                Genevieve picked them up and they are at her nice barn. They are COVERED in ticks and a mess. Vet is on his way out to look them over.

                Can you give me any more info on the Clydesdale yearling? Who is Lucy?

                  So are these two safe for sure now? I responded to an email from Chris about them yesterday and was about to start shooting out mails on them.

                  ETA: okay just saw the last post now. Thanks!

                    The mares are still available. I am just fostering them, getting them the care they need until permanent homes can be found.
                    Both mares are pleasant to work around. They will get their feet done tomorrow. I have been working on getting rid of the ticks.
                    If you are interseted in either mare you can contact me, Chris or Betsy.
                    I will take some nice conformation shots of them tomorrow.
