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!

  • SHIPPING WOES

    I'm trying to ship a horse from west of Atlanta to northern Virginia. And am discovering that many of the larger shippers don't venture that far west off 95. Can anyone suggest a smaller firm that might take on that route?

  • #2
    Brookledge?
    They are my favorite long distance shipper.
    Northern Va. is not that far off the beaten path for commercial shippers in this area.
    Nate Chambers also ships - privately. Hope that helps!

      Thanks!

      Brookledge can't do, but thanks for the additional name. I've been calling around, and may have to ship this little horse via Fed Ex!

        A few years ago I used Jimmy Parlier in Denver, NC to ship my horse from Midland, NC to northern PA. Not sure if he'd go down to Georgia, but would be worth a shot. I didn't have any problems with them.

          Equine Express out of Dallas, Tx. makes many trips each month west to east and back. They might have something going through Atlanta then north. They brought our stallion from Pa. to Ok. Good service. If you would deal with a commercial "slant" hauler, I have another name for you out of Ok who makes weekly trips that way.

                Try using www.travelinghorse.com

                I've used them for years to find shippers for horses in various places. You put in where your horse is and when you want to move it and shippers contact you with quotes. I just moved a horse from MI to PA using the site.

                        We have used Horse Carriage Transport twice now and have been very pleased with them. They are great with the horses and very reasonably priced.

                          I've used Equine Express, since they are coming from the west.

                                Problem solved

                                Thanks to everyone who offered suggestions! I made contact with Horse Jitney (based in Maryland) and, luckily, they had a trip planned this week to Atlanta. They sound very professional and horse-savvy, so I am happy that I don't have to find a very big carton for UPS.

                                  Jimmy Parlier transported my horse from Raleigh to Los Angeles. He promised me he stopped and took the horses off the trailer each evening. My horse became impacted along the way and thus had colic. I lost him after spending thousands of dollars in Phoenix. I want Jimmy Parlier to prove to me that he properly cared for my horse and took him off the trailer to rest and move around each evening. He refuses to tell me where and when he was taken off the trailer. He said he "doesn't remember where and when he stopped".

                                    I will NEVER use him again. He had injured my horse and at least 2 others I am aware of. PLUS " James Lee Parlier Jr, DBA: Parlier Trucking Co 5668 King Wilkinson Rd Denver, NC 28037 Ph # 704-477-6061 MC# 316590 US-DOT # 613581 According to FMCSA he does not have any insurance on file so his authority has been revoked and he should not be hauling for hire. And his US-DOT number is showing NOT AUTHORIZED So he is running illegally while hauling horses for payment." He became "authorized" AFTER DOT investigation Feb 26th 2014 and citations should be posted soon on their website"

                                      Off topic, but... do you really want your email address to be your username? I'd see whether this can be modified, else, it seems an invitation for SPAM.

                                      Back on topic -- there's another thread about shipping with further comments about this shipper.

                                        Glad OP got a shipper. I too was going to suggest Bob Hubbarb. I have used them many times to go to/from rather remote places.
