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!

        Hay Delivery Service

        Hello all,
        I work for a boarding ranch in Orange County NY and run a hay delivery business. We have access to a variety of hay and alfalfa at all times and deliver in NY,NJ,CT,and PA. We deliver free to many areas and if there is a charge, it will be reasonable to say the least. Trailer loads of non local hay (ohio timothy) are also readily available. Feel free to contact me anytime with your questions/comments! You can email me directly to my cell phone since I only get on the computer once or twice a day if I'm lucky! eddiefalconridge@gmail.com

          We got hay in kingsbury,texas!!

          First, we will have 3’ x 3’ x 8’ bales of alfalfa. This is really nice alfalfa. The bales weight 900 lbs. from the shipping scales. Each bale will cost $150.00. This would be equal to $10.00 per bale for 60 lb. bales! This price is picking it up at the ranch. It is string-baled hay. Cash only!

          We have 5’ x 4’ round bales of blue stem. Again, this is very good hay. The weight is approximately 1,100 lbs. per bale. The price is $75.00 each, picking it up at the ranch. If you choose to buy five (5) bales or more, I will sell them for $70 per bale, picking it up at the ranch. I can get as many as you want in just a few days. It is string-baled. Cash only!

          We have a few large round bales of costal 5’ x 6’, around 15 bales. They are around 1,400 lbs. These will be $95.00 per bale. I cannot replace them at this point and there are just a few so first come first serve on these bales. Price is picking it up at the ranch. Cash only!

              Where is Kingsbury? I live in Burleson (not a native Texas, obviously, or I'd know where this is...sorry). I am shopping for hay now. I use around 200 bales per month of coastal and add alfalfa to it. I would really be interested in the blue stem and the alfalfa.

              My email is dray429@gmail.com or pm me on COTH with your number please. Thank you.

                Good, economy priced orchard grass in NoVA - you pick out of field

                I have a mostly orchard grass field that is going to be baled tomorrow or the next day (July 6-7). This is good quality hay (1st cutting orchard) - my neighbor who raises Hanoverians bought the perimeter cutting. I will sell it for $2/bale if you come pick it up out of the field once it is baled. Should yield about 250 bales. Call 703-505-7470 or e-mail secondfiddlefarm@gmail.com. Thanks!

                    Tifton Square bales near Brenham, TX

                    I have 40 (maybe 45) square bales of Tifton available for sale because my picky horses won't eat it. Cut and baled in August and currently in my barn. $5/bale (less than I paid for it) you pick it up from my barn.

                              Would love to find someone who sells an Orchard/Fescue or Timothy mix hay in North GA. Basically, I'm looking for something that ISN'T Bermuda. That's about all that I can find around here.
                              I'm out near Athens, but don't mind a bit of a drive for some good hay.
                              Anyone have any leads? PM me.

                                Didn't you used to sell teff? If so, may I ask why you stopped? I just picked some hay up locally (in Ocala) and noticed they were starting to sell teff. I've never used it and I'm curious about it.

                                If you get a load request of O/A or T/A together for Ocala and need another person to go in on it, then PM me, I'm usually needing hay.

                                  it is cost ineffective in an absurd way,as as we are not a charity we are not even going to try to supply it to anyone....

                                        Seeking 2nd or ideally 3rd cut hay in s. NY, CT or NJ area. Must be very soft. Some alfalfa content is ok. This is for one aged horse so we don't need huge amount all at once. Horse located in Westchester County, NY... if delivery not avail, can pick up if not too far away.

                                          First, a large thank you to COTH for putting up this Hay Thread!

                                          Here's a link to our website:

                                          Although we primarily transport our hay to Florida, we also have clients in Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina that we supply as well.

                                          Right now we have some very nice 1st. cutting straight orchard grass, as well as 1st. cutting Alfalfa / orchard grass mixed.

                                          Also, we have a few hundred, dairy quality, 4th. cutting Alfalfa / orchard grass mixed bales left that we refer to as, " rocket fuel".

                                          All of the above mentioned hay, is made with a John Deere 338 small square baler and are, 14"X18"X36" and weigh an average of 50lbs.

                                          In addition, we also have small , 4ft.X4ft. 2nd. cutting Alfalfa / orchard grass mixed round bales. This hay is nice and is what we feed to our own horses everyday.

                                          All of the hay mentioned above was made here in Maryland on our farm.

                                          We have been following Courtney King Dye's progress,while jingling with both hands.
                                          We will, from any hay sale that comes from this posting, donate 10% of the proceeds of those sales to help with her recovery.

                                          Again, thanks to The COTH folks for letting us post this and thanks to you members who took time to read it!!
