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!

  • Raised by a Jack Russell

    When I was a kid, my mother, who is Romanian, would ask when we were misbehaving, if we were raised by gypsies. Now I have the corollary question in the dog world, were you raised by Jack Russells?

    What were we thinking? We got this really nice well-bred German Shepherd puppy. She is beautiful black and tan but mostly black and we named her Halle Beary. We aren't around much so our Jack Russell and Toy Fox Terrier have been in charge of her upbringing. They have done a really good job housebreaking her. She literally was housebroken within two weeks of being home without a crate. Unfortunately after 3-1/2 months I am starting to realize that she thinks she is a Jack Russell. Don't get me wrong, I love my Jack Russell but he weighs no more than 15 pounds give or take. Halle weighed 50 pounds three weeks ago when she was 4 months old. Am I on the road to owning a 100 pound Jack Russell? Can you imagine?

    well, i have raised some JRT's and i would not want a Huge one. But not sure what you can do about it.

      You might NEED to send HER to the gypsies for a while... you're screwed if you end up with a 100# JRTerrorist...

        My JRT was raised by my Rottie, so he thinks that he is 100lbs+ of pure Rottie w/ the JRT bounce thrown in for good measure. He then raised my chihuahua, so now we have a 5 lb, 8" tall monster who thinks she is a JRT who thinks he is a Rottie! It is quite funny to watch her "protect" what she thinks is hers. We just have to be careful when she is around other dogs because she really does think that she can whip anybody's butt. Not a good thing!

          Yikes! A 15 lb. Jack Russell is as much trouble as any other 100 lb. dog, so if he thinks he is a Jack Russell AND he ends up being 100 lbs, then that is like having a 200 lb. dog!

            imissvixen, I have a young Doberman being raised by JRT's too! It's not too bad-lots of digging, tug of war and rat hunting-the Dobe doesn't have the JRT's selective hearing problem, thank goodness!

              my chocolate lab is named Halle Berry, just thought I'd add that in there.

                LOL, heaven help you if that happens.

                When our now 13 year old Jack was a youngin he created a task of charging the vacumn and barking at it when ever I used it. It was funny as all heck. I'd hate to see that happen with a mega big shepard.

                  LOL! Try 5 of them... Oh yeah, that's a whole another story... Throw in a 6 week old baby boy.... NEVER a dull moment here! LOL! Our one female is such a princess, it's so funny! She gives all the others the most dirty of looks when they want lap time and she is in your lap.
                  They all act like children, fight each other at certain times, act like snobs when people go to touch them, and so much more... I shake my head... LOL!!

                    Been there - three Jacks and a GSD. GSD only pretends to be a Jack when he thinks he can get away with it. Like draping himself over a friend of mine on the sofa. (He is not allowed on the sofa, the Jacks are). He is Teutonic enough to distinguish between his set of rules and those for the Jacks. Actually, the GSD and the more obedient Jack have one set of more restrictive rules. The ancient deaf blind Jack has no rules - just right - she bosses everyone around, yelling at the top of her lungs whether she is facing them or not. The younger female Jack is too stupid, opportunistic and self-centered to have any rules except that behavior which can be influenced by cookies. Good thing she is really cute. Glad someone else shares a love of this crazy mixed up combination!

                      OH gosh, this thread is SO funny!! I have a 18lb JR terror and a 92lb Flat Coat Retriever mix and I always say that I'm so very glad the big one doesn't act like the little one or I'd be in BIG trouble.

                        We just visit homes with Jacks and Chihuahuas, but I thought they ALL know for sure they are 3 feet tall and able to whip anybody's butt. Aren't they?
