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!

  • JRT fans...need help re-homing "Elliot"

    A gal who works and lives here needs to re-home her "broken-coated" JRT asap. She has had Eliott since he was a puppy (he's almost 4 now) and had a new baby last year. No real problems until recently since the baby is crawling/standing and requires more time from Mom. His separation anxiety has escalated, etc. Last week, he nipped the baby when she crawled up near his food.

    He's so used to being the center of the owner's attention, she's concerned his jealously may increase...and of course wants to take no chances.

    Has been raised on a farm, great with the horses, cats, other dogs, geese, cars, machinery...etc. Current on all shots, etc.

    He's a realy cute, funny little guy. Not super-hyper, either. If you or you know anyone interested in Eliott, please PM me or email the owner. luckieshell@aol.com

    Thanks.

      Yes, she's checking on that. It would be so nice to re-home him here in the Va/Md/WVa with a fellow horseperson though. That's why I said I'd post here. He's a nice little dog who's already "farm trained" and there seem to be so many good dog owners here..

        I'm going to go to lunch and pray that when I come back this little guy has already got a new home. Please. Because I'm tempted. But I do not need another dog.

          I do NOT need another terrier.

          Hubby will kill me if I get another dog.

          If it gets desperate, and you think he can get along with the 5 JRTs I already have bouncing around here, (and the 2 Catahoulas, 3 Beagles and 2 Mongrels), I'll sneak him in somehow.

          See my profile pic for 3 of my little terrors. 30 acres here to roam on, plenty of lap time.
          Everyone has their very own sleeping crate, because trust me, no one sleeps at night if there are 5 terriers loose in the house.

            Has she considered consulting with a behaviorist/trainer for tips/strategies that might help her keep her JRT (and her child)?

              I know this little dog pretty well. I'm a pretty good trainer myself. IMO, the owner will not be able to devote the tremendous amount of time with consistency needed to change the behavior reliably. Managing the dog around the baby, while working around the farm, takes a lot of time.

              Ask me how I know...I'm the one who adopted a Terv pup (not knowing the breed) not long ago. Teaching her to not herd the horses was a full time endeavor, but well worth the effort. She's great now. She ADORES kids, to boot. I digress...

              Dawglover he'd probably have a ball with a pack of Jacks. It would probably help with his "single-attachment" issues and give him a job.
              Jazzrider...there's always room for one more, right? Especially since he's very tiny

                Personally, I'd get rid of the kid, but hey, that's just a childless-and-happy-Jack-Russell-lover-and-owner.

                Thank God Elliot is A) a male and B) clear across the country, because the spousal unit is making odd noises about adding another JRT but he wants a female since another male would likely upset the current two-male terrier (one full JRT, one semi) pack. And no one, but no one wants an unhappy Jack around the house.

                Darling dogs, btw, Dawglover!

                  Dogs and horses are SO much easier to train than kids... (though I have no experience with the latter)

                    dawglover, with all the bouncing and playing Jacks do they might not slow down enough for your hubby to count them. Hard to be annoyed about something you don't notice - until it's curled up in your lap and you're giving it kisses. Then, if he's like my DH, he'll be toast and the Elliot will be homefree!

                      Jazzrider.. of course, after your post, you know we will hunt you down to take teeny weeny "Elliot"...cute little bugger, he is.

                      He just seems to be annoyed by an 11th month old taking his "Mom" away from him and crawling into his food. He's great with non-toddlers and all other people in the world, btw.

                      I think his owner is being very responsible on this front. She adores him, but has to make a choice. If he was to snap and get an eye on this child while she's in this crawling and grabbing phase, while accidental, it would be dreadful.

                      I support her decision but she doesn't just want to drop him off as a "rescue". He's a good little dude.

                        I'm not in the immediate area, but I do have a vacancy in my pack. Tho if separation anxiety is an issue, I am at work all day, which is why I have more than one dog (two, at the moment; lost my beloved Corgi in May). Have a large, fenced yard, dog door to a space under my house, dogs sleep in the house with me at night. It's just me and the critters, I do have horses but dogs don't go to the barn with me, it's too close to the road. Love to have a dog in the car with me when I run errands, though!

                          Hubby's on to my tricks...he does a daily head count He loves them all, just not as much as I do.

                          The last ''free" dog cost him ~$4000.

                          He's the sweetest little soul, adores "his" people and at the end of the day is a lap potato.
                          He spent the first 9 months of his life confined to a crate 23 hours a day. He wasn't "show quality", so got very little interaction/socialization.

                          I was sure the farm life would be perfect for him. He got along right away with the other terrors, but the very minute he's off leash, he's GONE! He is so jazzed by all the sights/smells/wide open spaces that he just *can't* stop. He will run for MILES. And refuses to be caught.

                          So, we now have the "Wookie fence" 5 feet tall chain link, to keep him from leaping over, with electric wire running along the bottom to keep him from tunneling under, and 2 years later, he's still neurotic and is not allowed off leash unless he's in the fence. And since I didn't want him to feel too confined, it's a 120 x 70 fenced area.

                          Someone out there needs and wants Elliot. But, if it comes down to the wire, and no one else can take him, well, he can come here.

                            I think our husbands would be good friends, Dawglover! They would have a lot to commiserate over.

                              Ugh, don't tempt me. I've got family in town and then we leave for vacation on the 29th until 9/7. I've chatted with hubby. He's also tempted. We're both just worried about upsetting the peace we have right now with the two dogs we have. But we're close enough to give it a trial run if we give into the temptation when we get back in town. But I'm still crossing my fingers for someone to snap him up to a great horse home. Come on folks.

                                I've passed on Jazzrider and Dawglover's interest to the owner (who is also out of town celebrating her baby's 1st b-day with family).

                                Thanks everyone. I know the most important thing for the owner is to find the right situation for Elliot and whoever adopts him...
