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!

  • Can I have some jingles?

    Last night my <3 kitty went on a walkabout, didn't think anything of it until this morning when he wasn't waiting at the door for breakfast and he's still not home tonight. He was my everything buddy- dog walking, gardening, mucking, swing sitting, you name it it hung out with me while I did it. So can I please have some jingles that he comes home no worse for wear. He's been my best buddy since I first got Mir, and I'm really not thrilled with spending another night with him Not on my pillow.

    Here is a pic of him reading Coth with me.
    If i'm posting on Coth, it's either raining so I can't ride or it's night time and I can't sleep.

    I hope he comes in, and curtails his walkabouts.
    My cats do that sometimes and it makes for a very sleepless night.

              He's Found!

              The little snot was hiding in the hall closet (which was checked twice yesterday).... and his normally noisey self was silent. *sigh* He seems no worse for wear other than some extended crossing of the legs.

              Thanks for the jingles

                I had a dog gone for 24 hours. I looked all over for her and obsessivly stood on the front porch and called her. After a full day and night, I went and half heartedly called her... and heard a small woof. From under my feet. She was wedged under the porch and never said a word! Silly, fat butt. I had to partially dig her out.
                Glad your boy is safe.

                  whew! glad he turned up. Our cats no longer go outside. The coyotes and fisher cats in our neighborhood decided that domestic cat was a tasty treat.

                  After losing two, the one cat we had who liked to wander became a couch potato. The two ragdolls were never let outside because they have NO street smarts and are sweet but not athletic.

                    Rotten kitty! Catersun, so glad this tale has a happy ending. I have one that likes to do that to me now and again. Guess I don't have enough gray hairs to suit her.

                                I once lost Meg for three days. I looked, I called, I asked neighbors. No sign of Nutmeg. The second night I was sure I saw her cross the street. I stopped the car in the middle of the road and chased the kitty down. It wasn't Meg. Poor kitty couldn't figure out why I was chasing her. I got back to the car and my dogs had hit the electric locks. So here I am, trying to steal someone else's cat, my tiny Geo Metro filled with two dobermans and a german shepherd, locked and the engine running. I called the count sheriff to come and pop the lock on the car.

                                It turns out that Meg had gotten herself shut up in the guestroom. She never made a sound. I can only guess that when I went in there to get some books down from th eattic, she crept in after me. Silly old cat.

                                      Toughest Part is an appropriate REUNION ~ which I have not mastered

                                      So tough when a "c-a-t" is missing BUT usually the toughest part is when one finds the "c-a-t" or he/she wanders home ~ or comes out from the hiding place - that toughest part = not hugging and kissing and offering tuna and or some salmon..... thus re-enforcing this "missing" behavior -- ask me how I know or ask two of my cats in particular ~ one of my barn cats = "Cowboy" or one of my house cats = my hiding/ running expert cat = "Smarty Jones"
                                      Enjoy ! glad he is hogging the pillow again ~ maybe he would like some tuna for the Fourth of July ~

                                        Hooray for a happy ending. My wanderer likes to go walkabout too. Usually for a night or two. The last time she was gone for two weeks. We had given up, just hoping that she jumped into someone's truck and was happy in a new home, when she showed up. She was very thin, so we think she must have been shut in someplace. She has "friends" in all the barns around here and likes to visit. After the last episode, though, she's been sticking fairly close to home. She now visits our back porch every night to try to convince the dogs to come out and play.
