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!

  • Aerial View of Farm!

    FInally got my CD back with the aerial photo of the farm layout! In the lower left corner is just a tiny slice of our big front pasture which is about 4 acres or so, but otherwise can see nearly all of the farm, i think its so cool you can see someone working a horse in the roundpen!

    Edited to add: I have added this to the main page of our website, you can see it better there:

      I love aerial photos! And your place looks really nice, too.

      If you have any interest, there is a website Vintage Aerial Photography, they wil go through their collection of old farm photos (60's -90's)with you online and if you can find yours, for a fee you can have a copy printed. We are in the process right now although I'm afraid we may have no luck because we don't have any good photos of the old house. We're having to guess by debris fields, the power lines and heritage trees - trees grow up and fall down so . . .

      We have recent aerial photos of this place, because of the power lines it is available on Terraserver oblique images (there's a company that does nothing but fly over and photograph infrastructure for municipalities, and sells their images to Terraserver as well).

      Terraserver is a bit spendy though, they watermark their viewer and to see the photos well means a subscription, then downloading is $40 to $100. You can print off the viewer, the photos are good enough, but not as nice as what you've got. And by the time I scan them back in to share, well they get
      pretty fuzzy, so the download might be worth it. We're trying to decide.

      ETA That's downloading per image -
      may I ask how
      much did your pics run and how did you find a company to do it?

        Thanks but there was nothing here 4 years ago but fields and two old tobacco barns!

        The company apparently flew around here in September and they came to us to show us what they had taken. A large framed photo was $350 the CD disk was $50

          The aerial views I have seen of our place show the giant Figure 8 in the arena! I wonder if people flying over realize how much WORK went into having such a nice round 8 out there?

          We always have the horses inside on summer days, so there is nothing equine in any of the views. They do seem to take the pictures in late summer, so any dry spot or worn place horses roll, really shows up.

            Shawnee: your barn pix have always impressed me (and inspired me!) in learning and planning....
            But this shot really shows how beautiful and functional your barn/land is. Wow.

              It looks like we got lucky and they did the shot right after I had drug the ring!! Also the footing had JUST been upgraded a few weeks before this shot with lots of new sand as the original sand was not enough and we had some low spots that we redid with a base layer of screenings with sand on top. Still not perfect but better than it was! Thanks Ayrabz for the compliments! When I laid this out it was for maximum efficiency. And I didn't even have to think about it! I walked on this land and knew EXACTLY how i was going to lay it out.

                That is very, very nice to have.

                Our aerial pictures are from the Farm Service Agency/Conservation Agency and are three years old.
                They tell us they are getting new ones any day now, can't hardly wait.

                For those that can't find any commercial ones, you ought to try your local USDA office.

                  I figure is worth having to show people how the place looks and is laid out, I know that many times someone tries to describe a place and what you imagine vs. what it really is can be very different! Also, one day we will sell the place I am sure, as I am not getting any younger and the aerial shot will help then too! But not in the near future!

                    I just bought a framed aerial photo of our farm. Ironically the horses must have all been in the barn eating because there are no horses to be seen What are the chances?!

                    The guy wanted $250 for it but I talked him down to $100. Well worth it

                      A reminder to FINALLY call the guy who does these--he left a little proof on our porch last year with his number, and I've been meaning to order a print.

                          If we can afford to do the indoor, I plan to put it where the paddock in the far let lower corner is, you can see a horse there!
