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!

          Good for you! Love the mare and it sounds like the gelding may have some promise. And it's a good time of year to introduce them to grass. Can't wait to see pics of them as they fill out. That mare is quite a find!

            Thanks guys. These two could use some COTH jingles. They are in really really poor shape. My vet will be out tomorrow to help with the game plan. It is going to be a bit touch and go for a few days. They are in such poor condition that I do not want to even do a panacur power pack on them without a vet's ok. How people can let horses get into this condition is just upsetting.

            So please give them both some jingles to pull through get healthy.....

            ETA: I'd say they are a body score of 2 (going close to 1) to give you all an idea.

              so sad! How did the trainer expect them to do their job in awful shape!? sending Jingles your way! And how could the trainer say he'd take the one back?! Let you get him healthy again so he can ruin him in the spring again? Situations like this are what give racing a bad name. Glad you gave them a soft place to land. Really hope the 1st mare found a safe place too.

                It looks like you got them from Juan Sepulveda. Not hard for them to get that skinny in his program, unfortunately. I got a horse from him going on 2 years ago, right off the track. He was a 2 (also very close to a possible 1) on the weight scale, and all four of his frogs peeled off when I picked his feet the first time he had thrush so bad. I gave him a shot of bananmine when I wormed him with a half dose, just to be ready for the colic! Fast forward, and Pickles is jet black, shiny, one of the easiest keepers I have and anyone (and I mean anyone!) can ride him. And did I mention flashy?

                I'm sure they'll come around quickly with care. And you'll have a good Christmas with them. But best of all, they are going to be so happy they won't know how to act. Good on you.

                  Yeah...I'll not let him go back and think I can work it out with the trainer. Even if I have to pay a bit for him.

                  I just checked on them before it got too dark, they are in their nice new shed with a big bale of grass hay. As I was leaving, I watched them both go up for a drink of water. They seem ok for now. It's snowing now so I was glad they seem happy in the shed with hay....and are eating the hay. And yup...very worried about colic when I worm them. So glad my vet was happy to swing by tomorrow....I have a great vet

                    I wish that I could get all the horses in his care rehomed. He has a bunch on the CANTER Delaware Park trainer listings if anybody wants to try to help out.

                      me too. I'm also afraid he is going to offer me the one you like....I think that is what he was telling me. He is running him one more time. I can see my self talking him into letting me keep Richie...and taking that one as well. I now see the downside of having your own farm......

                            BFNE - that's completely awesome that you took those horses - really, a completely generous move.

                            I find it really aggravating when people post stuff like, "My horse had bad hocks so EVERY horse vaguely related to my horse will have bad hocks." What does that even mean? Yours had arthritis? Arthritis isn't generally heritable, even juvenile arthritis. Bad hocks aren't heritable. Conformation flaws are but 'bad joints' are not and the two are generally not related, even though people tend to think they always are.

                              A LOT has happened since the beginning of this thread. You are wonderful to take these two guys. They are low though : ( Alfalfa seems to really help when they get this low. I think there's even a protocol to follow using it to bring starving horses back to health. Maybe I read it on Cornell's site??? At the moment I can't remember where I read it. Anyway what a great thing to read today!

                                Small amounts of alfalfa, increasing over 2 weeks . Glad you took them Melissa-I'd say they look like BCS score of 1 /2. They certainly got their Christmas miracle....

                                    Bumping for Christmas - these Canter Cuties need their own BFNE-angel for a new home/career. Fingers crossed BFNE's new charges have a speedy return to good weight. Merry Christmas.

                                      That's sad to hear. I browse CANTER all the time and always thought Hammering Buckeye was cute. I, of course, could probably get hubby to purchase but I can't afford to keep unless I want to eat crackers or Ramen every meal. Although I assume he'd go real cheap if they look that bad....

                                          Thanks...they looked good this morning. I found normal poops in the shed (only horse people get happy seeing poop ) They are out in a field with 30 sheep that has a mix of alfalfa and grass with a big grass round bale. I know it isn't the ideal protocol but it is what I have. They were out grazing when I came out--but come when I call. They seemed bright eyed and looking better today. I think they were also dehydrated when I got them and that seems to have improved.

                                          Meeting my vet in a few hours but I'm feeling more positive for them now. Keep up the COTH jingles....and hoping a few more of these guys find some homes.
