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!

            Your barn is absolutely gorgeous! Seriously, it looks like my dream barn. Is that cement in the aisleways? Do you mind me asking what the price range was to build it?

              Thanks! I love it so much!!!

              Yes, the aisles are brushed cement, so they aren't slippery. After boarding at two barns with dirt floors - ugh - cement was a MUST! We have rubber mats in the stalls though and eventually I may get them for the wash stall as well.

              The thing I love about my wash stall is that it drains to the back. None of my horses have ever liked standing over top of the drain holes in the center of wash stalls, so having it drain to the back is AMAZING!!

              Price range to build was about $50,000; the concrete pad alone was about $10,000, but worth every penny! We did save quite a bit of money because my Dad built the stalls and finished off most of the interior walls himself, instead of having the builders do it (gotta love Super Dads!).
              The more you stir the $hit, the more it stinks.

                Everyones' barns are so nice! Congrats to you all!!!

                We had a new one put up this summer too.

                http://pets.webshots.com/album/574206788AFAXdc

                We are a long ways from being done but it's up and there are two stalls in now. When it's done, it will have 4 12x20 stalls, a 10x12 wash stall, a 10x12 feed room, a big tack room, bathroom, garage for my husband and an apartment in the 16x80 loft.

                I can only assume it will take at least 4 or 5 years to get it to the point we want it.

                        This is our 4-stall barn - 36 x 48 w/two 12 x 48 lean-tos. The link has pictures from the time materials were delivered and on - looking at them I realize we don't have any "final" pictures: http://gregh.smugmug.com/Animals/the...30349140_EMwZZ

                        We built ours last year and it is so nice to have. It is something I had been dreaming of for years.

                          Lovely barns, everyone!

                          My smaller barn is 60'x30'and currently has only 3 stalls. Hope to add at least one more stall and a wash bay (haven't located inside pics...yet). The indoor is 138'x60'. When we first looked at the place, I went directly to check out the barns...heck with the house.

                                  I have a 3-stall barn - it was here when we bought the property. I don't like this barn and have big dreams for my next place when I'll design what I really want. My tack room and crossties are separate from the barn area, although I do have crossties in the barn aise for grooming if I want to.

                                  http://good-times.webshots.com/photo...ost=good-times

                                  Here's a view of the barn from the house. On the right are two stalls, and on the left is the feed room and the third stall:

                                  http://good-times.webshots.com/photo...ost=good-times

                                  Here's looking at the barn from the beginning of our driveway. This looks to "the suite" which is the side of the barn with the single stall. The area on the left is the additional hay storage room we built:

                                  http://good-times.webshots.com/photo...ost=good-times

                                  We ended up with four horses...funny how that works...and since we only have 3 stalls, we (meaning my husband and neighbor) built a run-in shed across the driveway. Of course it is haunted or something, so no one actually wants to go in there:

                                  http://good-times.webshots.com/photo...ost=good-times

                                  We've made the most of this barn set-up, but it isn't ideal for me.

                                      Awwwww, thanks! That's Skipper, aka Pippa, who is an old, partially blind, lame appy who is missing some teeth. I got him almost three years ago to be a companion horse b/c at the time my old companion had passed away and so I only had two. And everyone knows you must have three horses, and four is even better!

                                      He was found roaming around a neighborhood up here so someone called animal control. They picked him up but at the time did not have horse facilities so they left him on the trailer. In August. For a weekend. One of the volunteers at the animal shelter, where I also volunteer, said, This is BS - he's coming to my house (she has 80 acres and a gorgeous horse facility) and if anyone wants him back they can come get him. No one ever did. When I sent a note to all the volunteers saying I was looking for a companion, she wrote me about him and I went and picked him up! He is so cute - he calls to me everytime I open the front door and he talks to me whenever I'm around him. It is just a little huhuhuh, huhuhuh, but it is so cute!
