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!

  • What does Jimmy Wofford like to eat?

    I know, strange topic. However, I am catering a 2-day clinic being taught by Jimmy Wofford on November 1 & 2. I will be serving breakfast (beverage/muffin/coffeecake/similar); lunch (sandwich, cup of soup, salad, chips & beverage); and afternoon snack (cookie & beverage) both days.

    Does anyone here know what Jimmy Wofford likes to eat? Any allergies? Any real dislikes?

    I am thinking a vegetable soup, turkey, swiss & apple sandwich, and some sort of fall type of green salad for Saturday. Then maybe a cream soup (potato/tomato/butternut squash or pumpkin or lentil), cranberry rosemary chicken salad sandwich, another fall type of green salad for Sunday.

    This is just a tentative menu ... subject to change of course. Might go Mexican/Hispanic on Saturday and do some sort of tortilla wrap instead of turkey. And maybe chili instead of vegetable soup.

    Before I go too far with my menu planning, I was hoping someone on this Board knew Jimmy Wofford and might be able to give me some guidance.

    While the food will be for everyone, I certainly don't want to prepare anything that the clinician cannot eat!

    Thanks in advance.

    How about calling his farm and asking him? I'd certainly trust that information more than what I might get on here (not that what you get here is bad, just that from the farm... yeah... more reliable)

        Why don't you call him and ask him? His number is listed on his website. he is a very nice man,and I am sure he would appreciate your asking his preferences.He is a real gentleman ,so don't be afraid to ask him yourself.


        • #5
          I would guess that he is not a picky man. Guys that are as adventurous as he is tend to have great appetites and have a love of all things edible.

          However, I'm sure you could call and/or email him and ask. He'd probably appreciate it, and he IS a hoot to chat with.

            Oh please don't change the menu you posted!! I am going to that clinic and it all sounds soooo delicious!!

            And I ditto calling him directly. He is very approachable.


            • Original Poster

              Thanks, everyone. It did not even occur to me to just ask him. I don't know him at all and felt like maybe it would be a bit bold to bother him. Also some people don't want to seem picky and won't give real answers when asked directly. They say, "oh, well, whatever you make is fine" ... and then it turns out that they did not tell you that they are allergic to strawberries or they are vegetarian, and there you are stuck.

              To GiGi, hope you got the e-mail from the Organizer and also from me regarding the food and the opportunity to sign up ahead of time to save $$. If you didn't, you could PM me your e-mail address and I'll send you the e-mail. The menu will be pretty much what I posted, maybe a tad different depending on recipes/local produce, etc. Looking forward to meeting you!

                DON`T SPOIL HIM!!! Just give him leftovers.
                If you are too nice, and feed him treats, he`ll just start to nip, and you`ll have to smack him.

                  Last time I was at one of his clinics, he brought his lunch...packed by his wife. I think he likes the time to himself. I'm sure Nacho would like a treat, though.

                        These are both great! And one of them is true.

                            Yes, for sure, just ask him and he will tell you. But don't be dissapointed when he doesn't hang around and visit. He usually just grabs a snack and heads off to his rental car for a quick nap and some time to himself. If it rains, make sure you have LOTS of extra rain gear.
                            And don't forget to come armed with some good questions for the Q & A session the first morning. You can pretty much ask him anything. Enjoy!

                                        I remember him liking a newspaper too, though can't think of one in upstate SC that I would ever read!!!

                                        I don't go bothering Jim on his break with silly questions about my horse or logistical questions about the clinic that can wait. He gets plenty of that stuff day in and day out and actually does have an active life outside the sport!
