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!

  • CoTH Enables Needed: Shelter Dog Coming Home?- Sad Update Pg. 2

    This poor girl has been in one of the community shelters out here for EIGHT MONTHS! I sent in an application that was accepted and went in today and met her. She is such a sweetie and she needs a new name. In the shelter she goes by Chaze (pronounced Chazz.....not my thing). Any ideas?

            She's so pretty! I'd probably call her Bella. That's exactly why I don't visit the shelters- if I saw a dog like that there's no way I could come home without her, especially if she were an older dog. Are those gray hairs on her muzzle or just her coloring?

                        Awww....she's beautiful! She reminds me of a dog I loved when I when I was little, she wasn't ours but we boarded her for a lady who had health problems and was in and out of the hospital a lot. Her name was Queenie.

                          I am sure once you get to know her a name will fit. Being older she may know her name so try something that sounds similar or close to the first part of her name phonetically. So she will still respond.
                          It is a lovely dog and I can't imagine waiting 8 month to get a home. Kudos to you.

                                  LOL what's wrong with Lucky?
                                  I've got one named Lucky and he came from the shelter fifteen years ago. He was a year old and is with us still.
                                  I had gone to pick up another dog for my daughter when I saw this guy and fell in love. When I asked about him they said he wasn't adoptable and was going to be put down the next day. Seems he had bitten someone. I argued but couldn't budge them. He was going to be gassed the next day and that was that. My heart was broken but I had to leave without him.

                                  Next morning I got a call and it seems they had him confused with the dog he was in with so if I wanted him....I got there within the hour!

                                  Two days later as I was doing barn chores he came running up to me bringing an empty bag that had contained rat poison! It had been a new bag high on a shelf in the tack room and now it was torn and EMPTY. He was very pleased with himself. I haven't a clue how it had come off the shelf but it evidently had.
                                  I poured peroxcide down him and oh my....at the green and white gunk. Ran him to the vet for a vitamin k shot and he never missed a beat.

                                  We decided that since he had escaped death twice in two days he just HAD to be named Lucky. During this last fifteen years Lucky has been the most healthy and loyal and loving dog you can imagine. He's still spry and healthy and I hope he will be with us another fifteen years!

                                      She is only about 3. If you noticed, her paws also have slightly white coloring, just like her nose. The white paws/nose/chest is a give-away for Australian Shepards. So while it LOOKS like she is ancient (the ridiculously poofy coat doesn't help either), she is only about 3.
                                      She has had 4 homes in those 3 years though, and she is ready to come home finally!
                                      I think we have decided on Addison, or Addy for short!

                                        I have a veterinarian friend who says this -- if you name the dog Lucky, odds are he won't be. She's given me (sad) examples of this too!
