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!

    Give the short legged pooches a Capstar after their frapping at the barn.
    Capstar kills all fleas on a dog within 30 minutes. Have used it for years on show dogs after having lodged in questionable areas. Can use daily if needed but that will get expensive.

    also try this cedarcide.com I have not tried it yet, but am looking into it for both my Corgi - who also loves going to see the ponies - and the cats, who get the gift of fleas from the dog going to the barn.

          Frontline and Advantage quit working for us, frontline years ago which our vet said was becoming more common. We stick with Advantix, we have to reapply more often then once a month and in the worst times are applying every 2 weeks, you think horse supplements are expensive, think advantix 2x week for four dogs . This year was a bad year for us, I still don't think I've gotten every single flea, we have even bombed the house as a precaution (which I hate to do since I hate the chemicals but I have little ones who play on the floor etc.) Good luck!!! I hate fleas!!!

            Capstar...never heard of it...learn something new everyday. Just to be clear, I read that one dose only lasts 24 hours. It is not long-acting.

            Getting pills down the cats is not fun. The dogs are easily tricked.

            My vet had me try something that worked fairly well.

            Get some lemon dish washing liquid. Fill up a tub with water. Soak the neck area with the dish liquid. Drop the dog in the water. Give the dog a good bath with dish soap. Be sure and apply the lemon soap to the pads of the feet and around the butt.

            I was surprised that a few fleas did show up dead. The dogs needed a bath anyway. It's not soap that I'd use constantly, but one or twice during a bad flea season probably won't hurt them.

            If you don't want to go the Capstar route, just try bathing them. I guess you can drown fleas and they don't like lemon.

            My vet also said that keeping a cup of rubbing alcohol and a Q-tip around works. If you see a flea on your pet, dab it with alcohol and it dies instantly.
            Surgeon General warns: "drinking every time Trump lies during the debate could result in acute alcohol poisoning."

                            Beautiful doggies!

                            We've just gotten turned onto Capstar - love it! Frontline and Advantage do nothing for mine. Mostly, I am looking forward to the weather turning cold and getting rid of all those nasty fleas - they've been especially bad this year!

                              @ what temp do they die off?

                              Just wondering what temperature is required for the fleas to die off?

                              Is it like crickets that require a hard freeze?

                              We are going to have some overnight temps this week that will be in the 40's (before climbing back up to the 90's by the end of the week! ). Do you think that will kill them off?

                                Back to your original question. I tried the Shoo tags for horses because I have "sucker" branded across my forehead. I didn't notice any improvement at all and they were hard to braid into my horse's mane and did not stay with the magnetic strip facing the right way. Now I don't know how they fit corgis.

                                A poster here asked me if I would give my opinion of the Shoo tag for an article she was writing. Don't know what her research unearthed, either.
