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!

  • Not that there is anything wrong with that...

    Sorry. I never much "got" Seinfeld, but I will admit to completely loving that phrase when it comes to... um... non-traditional relationships.

    So, on the farm, things are never really boring. Can get quite 'farmy' at times, as we all know. Circle of life and all. You know how it is, School Bus full of kindergarteners stops across the street just as the 11 month pregnant mare decides she needs to mount her daughter... Girl Scout Badge Day and the 2yo colt decides today is the day to be an exhibitionist... Elbow deep in sheath cleaning when the parents show up... That kind of thing.

    I'm going to blame Earl for now for the odd occurance this afternoon.

    My dog Eamon has been adjusting to life as a solo dog. He's been coming along on errands when I can (he is fine except when left in the vehicle alone--then he yelps like he's being skinned alive. Anyway.

    He's adjusting. Sort of. I thought.

    So I slept a little today, and then got up for a while. Eamon was being kind of mellow. I had the back door open to try to get some breeze. I was at the computer.

    I heard Eamon bumping around like he was doing something he probably shouldn't be. I got up to investigate, and found him looking innocent (which means he wasn't) and Domhnaigh hanging with him. I had NOT heard any kitty protests (and Domhnaigh is quite vocal...) so just kind of chalked it up.

    Until a about an hour later. I hear Eamon bumping around behind the computer chair. I turn around...

    And he is 'holding' Domh between his front paws, and, erm... well... acting VERY inappropriately for a long-neutered male dog. MOST ESPECIALLY with a male CAT. No matter HOW Floofy that cat happens to be.



    I mean, Not that there's anything wrong with that, right?

    Right?

    Domh, for his part, seems to be enjoying the attention. He had every opportunity to get away, or bite, or claw, or... whatever. But no, Mr. Floof didn't seem to mind one bit.





    Now, at this point I should remind everyone that Domhnaigh was considered to be a "she" for approximately the first six months of her(his) life. It was quite the paradigm shift when I discovered the cat who answered to "Prissy," "Missy," and "Princess" had... bumps.

    But, which of the pair needs help here?

    Later, when I woke up for my work shift, they were contentedly sleeping, erm... together. Domhnaigh was curled up right alongside Eamon.

    I'm all for the companionship, especially since Eamon's been lonely.

    But this is just a little... weird.

    Isn't it?

    Well, so long as they both were having fun......



    They do appear to fulfill criteria for "strange bedfellows"


    Is it a case of "If you can't be with the one you love, then love the one you're with" or.... true love? or simply lusty opportunists? or just doing it to see how you'll react?

            THIS was my first reaction. It's one of my all time favorite movie lines.

            No funny business today. Of course, because I had the camera ready.

              That was the final straw for my intact male Bernese Mountain Dog. After witnessing several incidents of the same scenario with one of my cats off to the vet he went!

              Okay, that's not totally true. The final straw was really the day he trotted inside and lifted his leg on my ottoman right in front of me. That was the day that I realized his nuts had. to. go.

              The breeder wasn't thrilled that we neutered him, but I figured we were better off doing it at 2 1/2 than waiting until one of my male cats gave birth to pittens (or would that be kuppies???) Obviously kidding, but I'm happy to say that post-neutering we've had no leg lifting or kitty humping incidents that I'm aware of!

              At least your boy has companionship of some sort, right? And maybe it's even LOVE...there is that old saying....opposites attract!

                My old (alpha) Bulldog and (omega) German Shepherd males would go outside and the Bulldog (he was kind of like Torchwood's Captain Jack - sexually omnivorous) would let the GSD hump him. I liked to yell, "NO HUMPING!" out the window at them just because they always would look guiltily towards the window while they did it.

                  Well, I hate to admit it, but Eamon and Domhnaigh would fit in quite well amongst our animals.

                  Teddy, our Yorkie, was given up by his former owner because of kitty rape. He continued his evil ways with one of our cats, but the other one refused his "affections." Until arthritis slowed him down, he basically humped everything in sight.

                  He loved our old tiny white Poodle/Maltese so much, he sucked her hair out (while humping her...).

                  Our new female Maltese loves everything male. Dog or cat -- doesn't matter. I'm just glad our miniature stallion is a bit too tall for her.

                  Our neutered poodle (neudle?) has always been quite the stud, and he and our female terrier mix were famous for going at it on the front porch when we lived in town. Hi neighbor! I didn't know neutered males could do what he does...

                  Then there are the horses. For awhile our corral looked like a conga line, with a 3-way moving hump and bump, 2 geldings and a stallion.

                  Compared to our pets, the humans around here are downright dull!

                        Thank you all for a good laugh today. I'm still trying to get a mental image of the dog "doing it" with a cat, and coming up short.

                        My neice has a yorkie-poo that is madly in love with our elderly saintly brittany female dog, and he goes after her incessantly when they come to visit. The poor brittany sits there with a long-suffering look on her face, as if to say "will someone please do something about him already?" And yes, he is neutered. Sometimes I laugh because the brittany was known to take a liking to some of my nieces and my daughters friends in that way, so there is a tiny bit of karmic justice going on.

                          I think I just peed a little

                          That is hillarious!

                          I thought it was funny that my neutered cat has a stuffed cat that he drags around by the throat from room to room until he finds the right spot to start humping away. It's a little uncomfortable when I'm watching tv and he's on the floor doing the nasty with a stuffed animal

                              My mother's daschund always molests the cats when he is at my house. My Jack Russell loves the kitties, but he doesnt' LOVE the kitties, thankfully. What he does LOVE is the giant stuffed goat that I picked up on the cheap at TSC. We call it crusty and it mostly lives stuffed in a bag in a closet until Tanner (JRT) finds it and drags it out again.

                                  My friend had a female dog (retriever/setter cross, so not small!) that routinely would do the same to her male cat.... We thought everyone was mixed up...

                                  My dog (neutered male) does not try this with anything except his stuffed elephant. And then, only after an exceptionally good meal. When we see him doing it, we know the meal was "humpalicious"

                                      Less disturbing than the cat humping the dog, I'm thinking.

                                      Does that reveal my speciesist tendencies?
