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!

  • Bogs boots

    Do they fit like Muddruckers?

    I am looking for a little different fit and have never tried Bogs.

    Muddruckers 9 is a bit small and 10 is a bit big.

    How would Bogs compare?

    I love my Bogs and they tend to run a little small.

      I can't compare to Muddruckers. I usually wear 7.5 or 8 shoes and usually buy size 8 boots. I bought size 8 Bogs and they are TIGHT. They are starting to loosen up and break in - after a year - but I can only wear them with super thin socks which is not what a size 8 boot to me usually means.

        I actually found that mine have run a little big. But I have some reason to believe that they might have been mislabeled, so my input might not be of much help. If it makes any difference, when I called customer service about the sizing, I was informed that most people feel that they run true to size.

        I adore my bogs (even though they are a little big). They just as durable as other muck boots out there, but they are so much more comfortable.

          I bought the tall orginal bog boots in the fall. I LOVE them. They keep my legs so warm. When the rest of me is freezing my legs are still nice and toasty. Very comfy.


          I usually wear a 7.5 in shoes and first bought a size 7 and then sent those back and got a 8. The 7 fit but were just a bit too snug and the 8's are perfect. So they probably run just a tad small.

            I have some bogs and while they are comfy on my feet they rub the front on my shins right at the top of the boot. They can rub me raw. Does anyone else have that problem?

            BTW, I do wear high socks and stuff my pants down inside also.

              The taller bogs fit narrower than the ankle length ones, so you might find you need a larger size in the taller for the width. I like the bogs because they are on the narrower size vs other makes of similar boots, but if you don't have narrow feet it is something to consider.

                Mine are a 9 and I wear 8.5 to 9's. They fit perfectly with a Smartwool sock. I think they are narrow in the heel, but I need that. I can't compare them to other brands, sorry.

                  I like them because they are snug at the feet instead of wide and have some arch support but i can see if you have a wide foot it might not work. The only problem I had with rubs was if I wore ill fitting socks (lol I sneak dh's away from him sometimes) it will rub my heel. I have a very prominent heel bone (rubs out most of the padding out of most of my shoes at the heel) though. It doesn't bother me though if I wear thin fitting socks, smartwool or barefoot.

                  I only tuck my pants in half of the time..if it's really muddy or if I'm doing stalls. Tucking jeans in looks bulky.

                    I've found that the fit varies between models. Can't compare Bogs to Mudruckers as I've not tried the latter, but I do have Muck Boots and found the Bogs Rider and my Muck Tack boots are similar in foot size. The Muck might run just slightly larger. I have the Bogs Rider and Bogs Taylor in my normal size 7 and they fit great. Don't find the foot narrow at all. But I tried a pair of Bogs Mattie (low boot/shoe) in a 7 and those were super tight in length and width.

                    I love the Bogs Rider boots and wear them constantly around here. I don't ride in them, but do use them for all my barn work and like the less slippery sole on them compared to the Taylor boots. Helps that I got them for a killer deal too!

                      Love. They rubbed my heel maybe the first two times, then broke in and now are perfect. I got them on mad sale (tall version). I'm a half size (9.5) and I think I got the 9 and it fits well.

                        I was wondering about Bogs too. I am looking for a tall version of some comfy muck boots suitable for working in winter in Canada. The problem is that I have tiny ankles and very thin calves...like 12". Bogs are 15" in the calf. Anything run smaller than that?

                          If you wear tall thick socks and tuck in your jeans (which are bulkier than breeches in tall boots) you should be fine.

                            I had the same experience. I usually wear an 8.5 but an 8 in bogs (tall ones) is perfect for me. The length is generous but the width is snug - I have narrow feet so it works perfectly for me.

                              Just wanted to bump this back up with a report on my recent (good!) experience with Bogs. My Rider boots had cracked at the instep after less than a year of service and I was really bummed as I wear those boots EVERY DAY here in the wet NW. So I contacted Bogs via the website and found out they are covered under the warranty. I just had to send them pictures and information and they are now shipping me a brand new pair of boots. I first contacted them last Thursday and got the message about new boots shipping today, so they were very responsive. So, while i was really disappointed in the longevity of the boots, I'm hoping I just got a bum pair, and I'm thrilled with the company's customer service.

                                Good to know about the warranty!

                                I have an update too. I just bought the Bogs tall plimsoll boots and I love them even though the calf is very wide for me. I usually wear an 8.5 but bought a 9 and they are perfect. I would say they run a bit on the narrow side. I have moderately narrow feet and they fit me well in the foot bed, which is unusual. So if you have wide feet I don't think they would fit great.

                                  Ugh! I wish I knew about the warranty. I had a pair of Bogs that cracked within a year of use. I was super disappointed as they boots were so cute, I don't wear them everyday and they are kept indoors in my mudroom. This happened two years ago....but I still have the boots in my closet (I was going to try caulking them as they were so cute!). Wonder if I could still get them replaced? I'll contact them.
