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!

  • face super dry help

    All this cold and wind is so dry. The face creams I have been using isn't strong enough. Seem to need something for really dry skin.

    How about Weleda EVERON® Face Balm?

      I don't have any recommendations for specific face products, but I always wear a ski mask when I have to be outside in the cold or wind and that has helped tremendously.

        I use Johnsons Baby CREAM (not lotion) on my face after I shower or wash my face. I tend towards dry skin anyways and this is the only stuff that works on my face to keep it from being flaky-dry.
        A few things hydrate better...but I wouldn't want them on my face. Like Aquafor...it's deep hydrating vaseline like goo...works fabulous for cracked skin but I wouldn't want a greasy face.

          Wash with a good moisturizing cleanser (I use one by neutrogena that calms redness and irritation). Moisturize by night with a good night cream. In the morning wash with the cleanser, then moisturize by day with a good SPF moisturizer. Don't break the cycle. When riding in the cold wind or working on the farm on cold windy days, add a thin top layer of vaseline to prevent dryness and chapping.

            I cheat and use vasaline. It feels absolutely disgusting until it soaks in, but it works great.

                I posted Intensive Hydrating Masque on another thread today.

                Helps me save face.

                  Your face doesn't HAVE to be exposed. Wear clothes on it. Several options besides traditional (and scary!!!) ski mask.

                    Go to an Avene counter and ask for the moisturizing BALM. Get a couple of samples to be sure it's what you want and then buy the big one. Works fantastic, but is super moisturizing, so be sure it's what you need first. Great for heels, etc too.

                        I purchased a roll-on vitamin E stick from GNC and use on the dry areas of my face, then apply a layer of my daily moisturizer. It keeps my face from being dry all day. I have also mixed a small amount of Aquafor with my regular moisturizer and it works well.

                          kind of on the same vein...if your cleaner for your skin leaves it feeling tight....it's too strong...this stripping of the skin leaves it vulnerable to over drying in the winter...I use Vaseline around my eyes and lips at night...am suffering right now from an impressive wind burn on my forehead from THREE days of carrying buckets of hot water to frozen solid Auto Waterers...

                          it's a warm soft washcloth and Vaseline for me tonight

                            I slather Aquaphor on at night after my shower, while my face is damp. It pretty much disappears by bedtime and isn't that gooey. In fact, I use it "all over" after my shower in winter. I have really dry skin and that is pretty much the only thing that works well for me. Aveeno is pretty good for daily use, too.

                              Whatever product you use, make sure to put on moisturizer, preferably with sunscreen, BEFORE you go outside, not just at night after or just after you shower. That alone can make a huge difference.

                                Ditto the GOld Bond! And their SPF 15 lotion is great for daytime use.

                                Question about the vaseline- doesn't it cause breakouts?

                                  Aquanil is a great cleanser for dry skin. You don't have to actually rinse it off with water, you can just wipe it off with a tissue or cloth.

                                    Same here. When it is super cold and windy, I wear Vaseline to the barn. I also do regular moisturizer in the am and before bed. My body also gets very dry...it is not exposed, esp. in the winter :LOL: ...so I put on baby oil when I'm in the shower. It seems to help.

                                      So glad to get ideas. Wish I could use vaseline but never been able to.

                                        Calendula Cream, I use Jurlique, it is a miracle!
                                        My son who has extremely dry skin and excema uses it and it makes the dry redness go away completely and heals it.
                                        It's expensive, but I will not hesitate to buy him more when he runs out.
