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!

  • Schipperke/Terrier mix sadly needs a new home

    Tito is a bit more than one year old, app.25- 30 lbs. He is completely up to date on his shots, microchipped and on a flea and heartworm prevention. He is neutered.

    And best of all, he is a perfect farm dog. He does not chase horses although he has more than enough energy to spare. He likes cats who like him and they all get used to him. He never wanders, always right at hand.

    He sleeps indoors at night but is out all day long. He is not an excessive barker, only when people come or something is amiss. He gets along with all other dogs but is no woosie.

    While I had intended to keep Tito, Chocomare has his sister, finances just dont allow for me to keep all these dogs in the manner they should be.

    So, if you are looking for a GREAT dog, please consider this boy. He is in no danger for sure but.......................he really does need a people and the farm life is the only life for him.

        wow a one person thread. You guys, this little guy is a great great dog. A perfect farm dog, and he kills mice and rats real well. Not very big, an easy keeper and he is all fixed and up to date. How cheap can it get.

                  I just lost my shepherd mix. We had to put him down. He was 13 and in liver failure. I put in an adoption application at the local humane shelter last Friday. They will determine if I get the dog I applied for this week. If I do not, I would LOVE this guy. (Can't take two, however much I might want them) Can I let you know once I know when I get the word from the shelter? It will be before the end of the week. I miss Remmy (my late boy) and need another dog. I'm in MD. Ill have to have him shipped up.

                    While I dont know about shipping him to WA. I can try. But I absolutely can get him to Maryland as we have the dog train going there every couple of weeks. Well it goes all the way to NE.

                    We do have pilots who fly dogs all over the US and just sent a Greyhound to Wy. so lets not rule out WA either ok.

                    Let me see what I can do. Either of you wont be sorry for Tito thats for sure. Farm dog extrodianaire.

                          Bump.

                          Has Tito ever spent time around children or chickens?

                          A picture would be great!

                          Charlieo, did you get approval to get your pup?? Sorry to hear about the loss of your old friend.

                            Didgery, no, haven't heard yet, but I'm going to call tomorrow, as they promised a week. I miss my Remmy (short for Remington) and I'll be glad to have a new best friend. If they haven't made up their (collective) mind, I may just politely tell them I found another dog, and let Lori know. I am not at all sure the dog I applied for would like the barn cats, but I did file the application and I feel obligated to see it through as long as they (humane society) honor their promise to let me know this week.

                              While I dont have chikens, my neighbor does and apparently, Tito has never bothered them. I have never ever seen him chase them or even bother with them. The neighbor has guinea hens and chikens all over but..........................I will tell you that I know my own two dogs dont bother my neighbors chikens but if they came on our property, they would be run off. As much as I want chikens, after reading about them causing death in bully dogs, and knowing my bordercollie X and the bassetthound, no chikens on this farm. They can live on the neighbors farm.

                                I have a relative flying from Boston to Seattle on Friday. Not sure if that helps! She just bought her tickets (last minute) and I don't know if she's on an airline that carries dogs . . . .

                                  well, despite 2 calls, the local shelter has no information for me on my application for the dog I chose. They did promise a 1 week turnaround. If Tito isn't going to Didgery, I would love him. Let me know. If he is headed to Washington, I know Didgery will give him a great home. Thanks.

                                    If you can give him a great home, please do, C! That's exciting. It would be difficult to arrange transport for Tito to WA and it would be better to spare him the hardships of traffic if possible - there are so many shelter dogs here in my area that I'm sure I can find a match.

                                    If something doesn't work out, let me know and we can rethink things.

                                    Thanks!
