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!

    Prices?

    Do you have contact information?

    Will pm you also but it may be helpful to add all that stuff here too.

            I'm also interested to hear where you are located and if your hay has been tested. Have a recently foundered horse that I'm looking for low NSC hay - I'm in Eastern Va.

                I'm pretty sure this is Sean McCashin's hay, I buy it and it's excellent hay. The alflafa/orchard is so gorgeous my horses eat it like it's ice cream. Sean is a very nice guy, he's wonderful to deal with and he's located in Mocksville, NC @ TTC - if you google TTC, Mocksville it will come right up. I do know he'll deliver though.

                          Just thought I would relay my experience today with this hay dealer.

                          The hay looks nice according to photos. The folks were nice.

                          However , he wanted $ 600.00 to deliver 250 bales 2.5 hours from his farm !

                          I was appalled. I have been in the hay buisness most of my adult life and I have never heard such an outlandish quote for delivery for such a short distance.

                            OMG, was that the delivery fee only? As in $600 plus the cost of the hay?

                              Yes. He reduced it to $ 400 if it was only him coming. I am only 2.5 hours from his farm ! I can't imagine what it would be for you all the way to Fayetteville.

                              I have never heard of such. I always get hay quotes with delivery included. $ 600.00 to deliver a pawltry 250 bales 2.5 hours.........? Like I said , I was appalled.

                              Folks can charge what they want......folks also don't have to pay it !

                                Wow, that's unreal! At those prices, it'd be cheaper for me to buy the chopped hay from Triple Crown!

                                I can't imagine paying that much...guess I can cross that one off my list

                                  well the standard rate right now is $4 a loaded mile...that is for a pickup truck or a full semi truck...with us it includes tarping,a mechanical unload and a stacked to the ground with a professional CDL insured driver...

                                  loft or hand work is of course more

                                    Wow Tamara. $4 a mile ? I haven't heard anyone charging this either. That is a huge expense.

                                    The dealers I deal with just incorporate their fuel into the hay price and say ok .......$ 8.35 a bale or whatever.

                                    I would never pay $ 4 a mile and neither would anyone I know around here.

                                    I buy from growers in MD and VA and they always deliver and help me stack in the loft with my elevator.

                                    I just bought a premium 2nd cut orchard/alfalfa mix from MD. 302 bales delivered to me for right at $ 8 a bale. It's candy.

                                      well we always separate the hay from the fuel on the customer invoices...as one is "cost of goods sold" and the other is well...fuel

                                      $4 a mile is the standard rate for any delivery these days that is dedicated and one way...fuel is $3.85 gal and the big trucks burn a gal every 4-6 miles loaded or empty...so a truck coming back 200 miles w/o a load has just burnt $154 just trying to come back home...and $154 to get to you...

                                      the typical way to bill a road truck is 1/3 fuel,1/3 driver 1/3 truck upkeep
                                      at .77 mile that is 2.31 one way...times two as you gotta get home and that is 4.60/mile....anything less than that is a deal under a 500 mile run...over 500 ile runs and you can get in the $2.80's

                                      most people are already paying that they just (as you say) have it "built in" to the price...if your hay was 50 lb bales you just paid $400 a ton delivered to you...

                                      there is very little hay grown in Md that can command that wholesale price w/o the delivery fee being built into it...

                                      so you may have paid $5 for the bale and $3 for the delivery...which brings the haul bill back on 302 bales to $906 delivery fee

                                      or $6 for the hay and $2 for the delivery which is $604 delivery fee

                                      but as your grower/seller did not split the bill on paper, you don't know for sure how much was hay and how much was time and fuel...

                                        thanks Tamara for the calculations but my deal is normal for us here in Va. $ 8 a bale delivered and helped put in the loft. Not $ 8 a bale PLUS $600 delivery fee or $4 a mile delivery fee. Whew ! I couldn't or wouldn't pay that.
