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!

    I dig on the old, well-built farm house. But that sucker had better have insulation. Is that too much to ask? After all, you want genuine heat after coming in cold from working on your farm.

      You'd think horse properties would be cheap in Iowa, right? Here are two within 10 miles from me priced at >$1mil. Neither one blows me away, either. (but hey, the more they sell for, the better my home value looks, right? )
      This first one has pretty white PVC fencing throughout, but the barn is teeny-tiny. I think it's more of an equipment shed if anything.

      You can, of course get fixerupper places like what we got in 2001. And outside of the populated areas, you can get an acreage pretty cheap. (But going up every year-- with crop prices the way they have been, land values here have climbed 35% over the last 5 years.)

          Our current house has no insulation. Nada. Empty gaps in between the studs, built in 1910 in NW Montana. There was some theory floating around back then that empty air could be insulation! LOL seriously. So it's cold in here a lot but we have two wood stoves and it's small and when we come in from outside the fires are going and nothing heats you up faster than a red hot wood stove.

          We have no other source of heat-just the wood stove. If we're cold, we keep the fire going. I also only cook on a wood cook stove in the winter... it's already hot, might as well use it...

          Not saying it's always a good time but I still lean toward land and water more than creature comforts. Like insulation.

              (In an uninsulated house in Montana!). It turns out that I am a cold sissy. I can do heat and even (some) heat+humidity. I can do cold while moving outside.

              But I can't do cold in my house. I grew up that way and now it's a deal-breaker.

                    I think I have driven by that place. $1.6M, people. Lots of horse action nearby and perhaps 45 minutes to Portland, OR, maybe a tad more to downtown Portland.

                      I love this thread! We are hoping to start the buying process in the next year, and I've been looking at places where we hope to be moving. Mine aren't as extragrant as others.

                      This first one has lots of potential, and plenty of space to build a new barn and covered arena.

                        LB-never assume a property will sell, even if it says Pending or Under Contract. Not all sales happen, and you never give up until it closes. And lately we've had houses around here sell, and a few months later the new owner is trying to get rid of them.

                          I would stay exactly where I am, just buy more land around me. Maybe asphalt the main driveway. Build a better barn LOL, and clear more pasture. I'm pretty happy with my open floorplan, concrete counters, and stainless appliances. No one else has to like it- so long as I'm paying for it, only my (and DH) opinion really matters

                            If I ever give up on freezing to death half the year I'm moving next door to katarine and dragging down her property values.

                            That's a distinction too-if the place is designed from the heart that's one thing but the whole granite/stainless was such a trend it morphed into something to attract sellers instead, IMO.

                              If people ever look for something not too fancy, I have seen farms for sale in Wisconsin with indoors for under 300k. A foreclosure sold one near me for ~220k or so and it had an indoor and a heated attached barn with 9 stalls. Wrong time for me.

                              But here's another one with 37 acres, indoor, outdoor arenas and a nice enough home for $265k. More than functional for a lot of horse people I think.

                                  This is the place I am boarding at now... The pictures don't really show enough of it. Unfortunately there is no residence, and it is by no means worth that price in this market. But you can't beat the location.

                                      I'm looking right now in PA. We need an awesome school district (www.greatschools.com rated 8 or better), reasonable proximity to Bethlehem PA (for semi-weekly commute, so it doesn't have to be an hour, but not more than two), 100 acres+, totally private drive to either house or building lot and great views - with no neighbors in them.

                                          Do you have indoor plumbing? Does it freeze? We have a house of about the same age, same issue with lack of insulation, and we just finally got all the pipes thawed this week from when they froze up just after MLK day.
