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!

    They are my ultimate barn dogs. I have 3 (and my female just whelped a litter yesterday, so 3 more for added for the time being.). They really are the perfect breed of dog for my lifestyle here on the farm.

    Oh I loff Barley!

    While not a pure JRT, I adopted a JRT/Schipperke Mix from Lori at Sunkissed Acres: Missy! http://pets.webshots.com/photo/27162...15305252gdeQGX

    She has the JRT ears and body, but the Schipperke temperment. She is very good at the barn. Loves to runnnnnnn along the fenceline when the geldings are going crazy and happily sniffs her way over the pastures, yet stays close by. She knows to stay away from the horses big feetsies! Alas, she will inhale a poop ball every now and then. ICK

      I always wanted a JRT but ended up giving a home to a Rat Terrier and I absolutely adore him. They are such smart dogs and he just loves to hang out in the barn with us.

        In 1977 we imported a JRT from the Portman Hunt in Dorset. She had several sets of puppies and to this day I can see JR's that have a certain look and colouring and often we can track them back to the original Trump we imported. Now there are lots more than there used to be. All of these dogs had wonderful temperaments, alert and steady dogs, and it offends me when people judge all JR's by the ones that are too hyper-acative, yappy or ill bred. There seems to be a stereotype out there that is quite wrong.

          I had a JRT who WAS hyperactive the first 16 years of her life! It made her both very rewarding and very frustrating. She always had to be protected from her own eminent self-destruction. When she was 16 she had to have back surgery and could never walk very well again, but she lived another 4 years and still enjoyed life.

          However, I don't know if I'd want another Jack Russell. A quieter one might seem dull, and I do believe Molly may have taken years from my life, not added. Still, everybody loved that dog. A giant personality in a tiny body. Very athletic and physically tough too.

            I actually have to disagree here Foxtrot!!! My trainer has an 8 year old JRT female and he asked me to barn/house sit for him. By day three I could have strangled that JRT (I am the biggest animal lover you will meet and I would never think of hurting an animal, normally) .......she barked non-stop at everything. After the first morning she realized that my alarm goes off at 4:30 am and she would jump on me at 4:29 am .......then each day it got earlier and earlier...........then everytime I would roll over in bed she would jump off the bed and look at me like it was time to get up no matter what time it was. Way too much energy for me and the barking just about sent me over the edge!!!

            It really takes someone with alot of patience to have a JRT

              We have three JRT's...all males and all neutered now. One is our almost 16 JRTCA reg. former stud dog. We neutered him last winter due to prostrate problems. He's hunted below ground and had his trial certificate also. At one time, I was really into showing and trials.

              They are great farm dogs. Mine are always on the hunt for rats and varmits and they are good protectors also. Mine do fine with cats also...no aggression issues.

                    My friend and horse partner breeds short-leg Jack Russells and Euro Russells. Euro Russells used to be called Hunt Terriers and are (I think) the original predecessor of the modern JRTs. They are JRTs without the white base coat (can have white markings) and come in red, black and tan, brindle and even merle.

                          they are more like short haired fox terriers as they are a lot bigger than a jrt are lot shorter than yours
                          can be slightly long legs but about 1/2 the size of yours but even so yours are still big in comparison
                          i have a rather large one on shorter legs,

                            I can, in fact, be unhappy around my next door neighbor's "Jack Russell." It's one of those that give JRTs a bad name- barks incessantly whether indoors or out, hates strangers, and looks rather like a daschund with JRT coloring.

                            But then I love my own Jack Russell, and I loved my old Jack Russell who I lost several years ago. But then either of mine are so NOT the hyper/barky/nippy type.

                              Jack Russell's are supposed to be square. The OPs JRTs are cute, although they do not look like show quality, but they certainly meet the JRT standard.

                              The short, stubby dogs are not "correct" in the UK or the US or anywhere for that matter.

                              Here is a website that shows some gorgeous Jack Russell's. One of my bitch's grandfather (Garon's Sailor) is on the page, he was a Champion in both the UK, then the US

                                This my my JRT, Clyde. He's a 2 year old shortie, and I love him dearly. He loves to play (and dig, and swim, and chase...), but is really quite the couch potato.

                                  That said, I don't know that I will ever own more than 1 JRT at a time again, 2 together are just too much for me. I only have about 10 years to go with these 2

                                    It's been over 2 years and I still miss our darling Milhouse more than I can say.

                                    He was accidentally run over in our shared driveway at the old house by our neighbor.

                                    I would do most anything to have him back, he was 7 months old and I adored him.

                                    I recognized with despair that I was about to be compelled to buy a horse ~

                                        I think it's so cute though how my JR can be such a bullet when you take him outside to play...he tears around at 50mph terrorizing my big dog...but after, say, 9pm, he is just a cuddlebug that doesn't want to be moved from the couch
