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!

  • Southern California Timothy or Timothy/Orchard Mix Hay

    Does anybody know of a good dealer who will ship in somewhat smaller quantities (think 20 bales max) for preferably a lot under $21.00 a bale??
    21 is the lowest I have found from feed stores in the area and the hay needs to be delivered to zip 91307.

    Is there anybody in Calabasas/Topanga/West Hills/Chatsworth wanting to split timothy hay costs? I found one different people that have to deliver a minimun of 3 tons and I can possibly only store 1. From what I understand, if we are able to get 3 tons of Timothy, the end cost would only be $6.50 a bale and they are willing to work on delivery costs depending on whichever is cheapest (either per bale/per ton/etc).
    I found another person who is $115 a ton and needs a minimum of 3 tons to be delivered. I have not sent them an email yet because I think they are looking for year long contracts, but if anything is at all interested, I could see if they can do it as needed. I tried to get hay yesterday and almost hay to pay 22 bucks for one bale!

      If I were closer I would be interested... but I live too far away from you! I have a local feedstore that is selling timothy for $28.00 a bale!!!! I actually travel about 45 minutes away and buy 10 bales (that is all that will fit in my truck) at $22.00 a bale - so I save 60 bucks. Unfortunately, I can only store about 12 bales (16 if I stuff it in) so I have to buy in smaller quantities. Sometimes if the timing is right I can go in on an order with my neighbors, but they have more horses than me and less storage - so they are constantly ordering hay from the expensive nearby place. And I was told by my hay guy that it is only going to get worse - and may not get any better pricewise!

      good luck!

          Hi, we're about 2.5 hours north of Burbank and can get (they say) a truck load of mixed grass, including timothy, to us (between Bakersfield and Fresno, 15 miles east of I-5) for $6.10 a bale, plus shipping, starting deliveries in July.

          Is that too far for you guys to drive? If it is, and you all can split a truck/trailer load, from a more central location, they're Montana Hay Company. I expect that even with shipping, it would be cheaper than what you're paying. Let me look up the addy for you.

          We're hoping to get some in so that we can make it available to people who really can't afford to feed their horses. That's probably going to be most people, the way things are going.

          Just btw, locally grown alfalfa is selling here for $15 for a heavy (over 125#) bale, or $240 for a nominal ton. I bought one of the tons, and it is, probably, about 1 ton plus about 60#.

          Here's the address: http://wyominghay.com/share.html When you get there, back into the site, and go to "Hay for Sale" to see what they're offering at what prices. They're already closed for the day. I'll call tomorrow and try to get some idea of what the charges would be from there to here.

            I'm in Redlands, 92373, if that's any help.

            I could buy a ton if someone wants to go in on a group order, but I ONLY have someone to unload hay on Fridays.

I wish I could get this beautiful stuff to you some how! I guess I am about as far from you as I could be and still be in te continental USA.......

                Timothy isn't grown here, as far as I know, so it has to be trucked in. With diesel at $5/gallon it's not surprising it's so expensive

                Wish I could get some of that grass mix, but I have no storage.

                    Typical bale size is 100-150lbs.

                    Little different than in the Northeast where it's about half the weight if not less.

                    I get about 22 bales per 1 ton here in SoCal.
                    In the Northeast it was about 45 bales per ton.

                      I would be interested in sharing a load of Timothy. I'm in Southern Nevada but go to Southern California frequently.

                          I'm just on the other side of the riverbed

                          The best price on Timothy I found was $25 a bale last month but he was raising prices before the next shipment. $32 isn't so bad anymore actually. As much as I love Timothy- I don't feed it anymore. I get Orchard and Bermuda for half the price.

                            I'm paying $25/bale for orchard (big bales though).
