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!

    Hi everyone!! I just wanted to let you know that James arrived safe and sound in Versailles KY yesterday. He is very nice youngster in person. His pics don't do him justice. He has such a kind expression. He is very trusting towards people. He has big expressive eyes and when his surgery is completed he should (hopefully) be able to see well again. He has a huge extension in his gaits. He is a truly beautiful mover and has nice conformation. He is very babish looking still and I know Swedish warmbloods tend to mature later than most. He settled in well like he has lived with me forever. I put him in the front paddock with my 30 inch mini "Freddie" who immediately took care of him and stays with him.

    I will hopefully have pics of him this weekend for you all to see.

    I will be speaking with the Optamalogist from R & R this week about him. I will keep you posted!!

              Update on James Dean

              James Dean is doing well!! He has adjusted to life here in KY and has a new buddy, Freddie the mini. I will get some pics and post in my webshots tonight. I will send another update!

              I have been working with the Optomologist, Dr. Latimer who works with Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital. We are trying somethings first before going for the surgery. The cataract surgery is new and there are some positives and minuese with the surgery. Right now he is on Atropine ointment and antibotic which is administered to his eyes everyday. I keep a journal on what he does and how he reacts. We have found out yesterday for his checkup that he can see out of his right eye (clearly and correctly) about 1/2 moon size of his eye. He can see in front and side and back out of that eye. He will tilt his head to see more sometimes. You can take a pen light and see a greenish tint which is light reflecting off the lense. This is a really good sign. This is the same with the left eye but we are working on getting his pupil more dialated so he can see. There is so much I am learning for the Dr. about the equine eyes and James might improve enough to where he may not need the surgery to be a performance horse. She is finding out the costs of the surgery if in a few months we decide to do it. Right now he is showing some positive results with his limited vision.

              Thanks everyone for caring. He is truly a special horse and I feel blessed that Nicole let him come home with me and my horses. When I see him he makes me smile. He has that ora about him. Just a happy horse.

                  Hi Everybody!! James is doing well!! We are trying some other therapies before going for surgery. Cataract Surgery is still new and no one knows what happens to these horses after 2 years. I want James to have limited sight than no sight at all. His eyes are actually pushing on the cataracts and they started to leak which is a good thing. But he is getting his eye meds and stands perfectly still. He is turned out with a weanling, a mini and my mother in laws retired 17.3 dutch gelding and he acts like a normal horse. He will be getting a check up at the end of the month. He has to get gelded too!

                  But he is such a good boy that he just makes you feel so good when you see him.

                  I promise to take pics of him in his new blanket. The weather has not exactly been cooperating!!!

                        I own the horse. The surgery about $3500.00 to $4000.00 but there are not long term results with horses that had the surgery so we are just kind of hanging in there.

                            James is Seeking A New Home

                            I wanted to update everyone that James is doing great. However he is not a gelding as he had a late surprise drop. He is exceptionally sweet. Due to no fault of his own, I must find James a new home. This has to be an excellent home who will take care of him and give him his eye medication. I have put a lot of time and effort working with an eye specialist at Rood & Riddle. I have all his vet records. I have the medication which is a small amount of diclofanac in each eye every other day. His eyes are doing well, no tearing and he gets a long fantastic with others. He does best in turnout as much as possible and not in a stall for long periods of time. He will get really anxious and walk in circles continously.

                            He can be a great dressage prospect. He will have to be gelded. Please pm for more information on him or email me at futurewinenterprises@hotmail.com

                            This truly breaks my heart but I have to have the best for him.

                                  I posted this over on e-warmbloods, too, but you are going to have an easier time placing this guy if you have him gelded first. It looks like you've known since at least February that he needed to be gelded? Anyway, it is a lot to ask of someone to take a horse that needs daily eye care who is also still intact; I'm guessing that many people who would be willing to deal with the eyes aren't set up to care for a stallion.

                                    I am shocked about him not being gelded....I still have the paperwork from his "bill"...I watched the vet geld him...I watched two testicles be "snipped"......I remember the vet was worried he would wake up bad from the meds because of his sight inpairment....he woke up beautifully and waited like a pro for the meds to get out of his system.....

                                    Anyway...I didn't know you needed a home for him...he can just come back to my farm to live....call me or e-mail me.
