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!

  • ASAP Storm Berry, daughter of Storm Bird needs home ASAP

    ....... U R G E N T .....12/21/08.........

    Storm Berry needs a home asap.

    Her owner downsized/culled/whatever you choose to call it. She was due to ship to new Holland around the end of October. AC4H took her and was going to euthanize her if they couldn't find her a home...a far more dignified death than she'd have received at a slaughterhouse. And, that is where she'd have gone if they hadn't taken her.

    She's 20 years young and in good health.

    A woman in MD generously agreed to keep her until we found her a home or until Mid January. She had a home, then that home fell through.

    We are T H R E E W E E K S from Mid January.

    ... PLEASE...

    Keep this girl safe.

    Foster home, permanent home....she needs A HOME.

    Storm Berry is not available through our rescue, Bright Futures Farm. I just have a soft spot for elders, and I'm a huge fan of Storm Bird. I am not the one who has made the decision to euthanize her if she doesn't find a home.

    Please everyone...if she doesn't find a home, she will be euthanized.

    She is available as a FREE adoption through AC4H.

    If you want to foster her as a tax-deduction until a home can be found, contact AC4H

    Adoption inquiries to: christy@ac4h.com

      Hi Tricky,

      They don't have to be close. We can raise part of her transport.

      There is a photo or two on our web site, www.brightfuturesfarm.org Go to the home page, then choose the button on the left "Other horses available". I can't seem to post a pic on this thread. Are we able to post pics?


      • #4
        Yes, you can post a photo. You will have to upload the photo to something like photobucket. Then, when you're posting, the photo icon (to paste the photo link) is the little square with the "mountain" and the "sun" in it.

          Have you contacted Our Mims Retirement Haven? They do exist to retire the lovely old TB mares who are no longer of any use to the industry.

          Can't hurt to ask Jeanine!

            Dear HydroPHYLE.....Thank you. I will attempt to do the photo bucket tomorrow. Photos are on our site as well, see third post, I believe.

            Dear Spookhorse Jeanne was one of the first people I contacted. We are on the waiting list. Unfortunately, we are #21 on that list. Doesn't look promising :-(


            • #7
              Post this on liequine.com's msg board. Also, did you try contacting NY Horse Rescue and Project Sage Rescue?


              • #8
                You might want to contact Old Friends in Kentucky as well...502-863-1775.

                  That is too bad I know Jeanne usually has a waiting list, but I didn't know how long!

                  I wish more farms would (properly) pension their old mares rather than throw them to the wolves when they're breeding days are done. Or at least give them the dignity of humane euthanasia.

                    Bailarina...We are a rescue too. She was rescued by a different rescue. Both are full.

                    Carledee...Old Friends is full...

                    Spookhorse...I agree...unfortunately if we don't find her a home asap.....that will be her fate also.

                    Got a home, anyone, for a retired broodmare who had earned her right to retirement?????

                          I am told this mare appears sound, so she should be rideable. She's only coming 21...possible school horse for someone?

                            God if I could afford one more... Come on, someone give her a christmas miracle, what a good girl!

                              hope these can help

                              here's 2 web sites you can try, they both take in retired horses. one is catskill animal sanctuary www.casanctuary.org/ -12k the other is pets alive www.petsalive.com/ - 20k - they are both located in New york. I wish I had the room for her, I would take her. I really hope she gets a home.

                                    Where in MD?

                                    If you are close to me, I can provide a foster home until a permanent home is found. I would need to figure out a way to get a friend for her as all my horses are boarded, and I can't do it forever, but I do have 4 empty stalls in my back yard. I am in Anne Arundel county near Baltimore.

                                      I could possibly give her a lifetime home in MO. I will have to check on shipping though. I have a 45 acre place with runins and stalls.
