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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

  • What color should the people door be???

    Barn is done(ish)! Want to paint the door, as it is now stained with clay, and regardless, would not stay white for long.

    Suggestions?
    I'm a traditionalist, I like earthy tones - greens, blues. Not very adventurous.

    Firstly:
    Lovely barn!
    You have both the paired sliders with lights & overhang I foolishly went without & now covet

    My service door is white.
    Barn is light tan - no wainscotting - w/burgundy metal roof.
    If I had chosen, I may have gone burgundy for the door.
    As it is, the white doesn't bother me.

    For you, why not the green you already have?

      Thank you, I'm thrilled so far. I can't wait for it to be DONE.


      So I was thinking burgundy, as well

      By green, do you mean the wainscotting? If so, its a charcoal color. It looks weird in the photo because it was overcast.

      Our house has green trim, which I don't LOVE, even though greens my favorite color

        What color is the roof? That same charcoal color? If not, I might match the door to the roof, depending on the color. I think burgundy would look good, or a shade midway between the two colors on the barn.

          Roof is.....lemme look outside.....gray as well. Should darken/dull to a dark charcoal like the wainscotting.

          I actually like a matte black, but I've had negative feedback on that, because they don't like it, and if it sucks itll be a pain to change.

            I'd go with the tan on the top part of the barn.

              Very pretty barn!

              I too would go with the wainscoting color, but if not that, the tan of the upper part?
              Each would help the door blend better than the mere white.
              Steel people doors are hard to keep any paint on, need to be repainted more often, why it may not matter if you don't like your first color try, just repaint it.

                I would choose going with color of wainscoting, but if not that, I would go with black for crispness. But, with such a nice barn, you could paint the door flamingo pink with orange and neon blue polka dots, and it would still be a lovely barn.

                  Lovely barn ~ Congratulations !!!

                  While I am a ‘matching type’ - after years of barns, mine and others

                  I vote to leave it White for safety / visibility •

                  Again ... really nice ~ ENJOY !

                    I think you can add color without being too adventurous. A deep blue would compliment both the tan and charcoal, while adding dimension. Something from this palette, perhaps? https://colorideas.net/shuttle-gray-...color-palette/

                    I also think that you can't go wrong with a black door. Classic, timeless look.

                          If yours doors are open during daylight I’d say match the wainscoting. If closed stay white. Lovely barn.

                            IME, 16yrs in, the white steel door has zero need of repainting or retouching.
                            My horses actually have access to it as the barn is surrounded all along the front & sides by my sacrifice paddock. That opens to pastures either side & they are turned out 24/7/365.
                            Aside from wiping off the occasional bird mess, the door remains like new.

                            spacytracy Oops, charcoal not green, got it

                            Upon further thought, I might agree with "leave it white". Or go with the lighter color of the siding above the wainscotting.
                            Especially if, as I can, you see the door from your house.

                            I can see my service door from my bedroom, some 300' from the barn.
                            I can thus (groggily) assure myself it is shut when I look out at it from BR window.
                            If it was dark colored I would probably give myself apoplexy thinking it had somehow been left or blown open
                            Which, on one memorable occasion, it was.

                              Now that is an interesting thought, make the door a color you can see it is close from far away, for peace of mind.

                              Ours is white and starting to need repainting, after 16 years.
                              Now, the white framing metal is still looking like new.
                              The quonset barn used to be silver, is now light tan, white doors easy to see against that.

                                  Burgundy or dark hunter green, My third thought is a dusty blue, like a blue heron blue

                                    I like the idea of a totally different, but complimentary to the other colours . Also not a dark color. The front door/people door needs to be warm and inviting even if it is on a barn! I like the blue/gray idea also a really nice soft yellow or soft olive green color would look nice I think.
