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!

  • How to remove SKUNK smell???!!!

    Help!!! My dog got up close and personal with a skunk tonight and now everything (including me) smells skunk! I rubbed him all over with tomato juice, then gave him a bath, but he still smells. Any favorite products or home remedies for getting rid of the skunk smell would be greatly appreciated!
    Thank you!

    This will work...ask me how I know...

    1 Qt. (the big bottle) hydrogen peroxide
    1/4 cup baking soda
    2 T Dawn dish soap

    Mix in bucket, sponge on dog, rinse well! Viola!!

    Tip - do not store any leftover mix and never cover with a lid...could explode. Yikes.

        I can vouch for CrookedHorse's concoction from personal experience!!! It really works! Rub it in to the coat well and let it sit for a bit and then rinse out.

        We used that on our dogs when they got sprayed and we had them back inside the house sleeping with us that night.

          I can also confirm the effectiveness of said recipe! Shadow seems to forget the black and white Kitties wear perfume.

            O Good! Now he can do it again.

              If you don't want to do the mixture you can also use the iodine premade douche from the drug store, or baking soda based toothpaste-one large tube will make a lab minty fresh.

                Yup, that's the formula the DEM guys in RI use. My son's dog's groomer also adds a bit of minty toothpaste to the blend. You actually leave the concoction on for 10 minutes, then rinse and dry. You can also re-apply as needed.

                  I ALWAYS HAVE Hydrogen Peroxide, Baking Soda and Dawn dish detergent on hand once I start seeing the smooched ones in the road...cause I know my dog is going to "happen" upon one shortly.
                  THE ONLY THING THAT works! After bathing them you can actually bring the dog in the house! It works that well.

                    Another vote for Dawn, H2O2 and soda

                    If you wash your dog in tomato juice, it will just end up smelling like a very rank Bloody Mary!!

                    I've found that you may have to do more than one application on the area that received the direct hit. Unfortunately, that's often the face.

                      My dog got nailed 4 times in 10 days.

                      I didn't have the special concoction on hand. So I used johnson and johnson baby shampoo because the majority of the stink was on his face.

                      I had to go to the vet the next day for bloodwork and they said they couldn't smell it unless they put their nose right up close.

                      'Course, I couldn't smell a bloody thing because when he initially got skunked, I stuck my nose right up to him and took a whiff. That stuff is like nose napalm! Singed the hairs and burned up the sensors. LOL It smells NOTHING like skunk when it's in that concentrated form. SUffice it to say I "smelled" skunk for the better part of a week..though all assured me that my dog nor I still stunk.
                      A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

                      Might be a reason, never an excuse...

                        Microbe Clean is the most amazing stuff EVER!!! I can't stress enough how effective and safe this stuff is; MUCH better than Nature's Miracle or anything else I've tried. I use it for spots on my carpet - doggie or otherwise - as well as laundry stains. I've yet to see it fail! The label says it works on skunk spray, but I've never had to test that.
                        If you must choose between two evils, choose the one that you've never tried before.

                              I can guarantee that he will not have learned a lesson!! He will go right back and play with that black and white kitty again.

                                Massengill Douche. Mix it up double strength what is recommended on the package. Will not hurt eyes, removes all stink. This stuff REALLY works. You might feel funny buying a few boxes but you may as well get your Preparation-H and K-Y Jelly at the same time and really freak out the poor cashier
