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!

    ha! a fun thing for a bored night.

    1.What time is it? 11:22pm What are you doing? Waiting for some muscle relaxants to kick in so I can hit the sack!

    2. Nickname(s): No real nicknames! Occasionally get called by my last name-- by those who've managed to learn it!

    3. Number of candles that appeared on your last
    birthday cake: A mere 20.

    4. Pets? Is there life without pets?!! With me in my away-from-horses-university-apartment: two cats-- Stanley (the love of my life) and the lovely Henry Kittenger, who belongs to a former roommate currently travelling around Europe. At home, add five more cats split up between family members, four dogs, and two absolutely lovely horses.

    5. How much do you love your job (scale 1-10)? An average day probably gets about an 8 rating-- I'm lucky to do something I love.

    6. Swedish oxer or Swedish meatball? Oxer for sure! Though after another two years of horseless university, lord knows if I'll ever be able to jump one again.

    7. Favorite color: Green.

    8. Favorite food: Impossible question! I love food! Since it's winter I'm on a chili-and-biscuit making kick... but then there's asparagus... and smelly quebecois cheese...and..!

    9. Been to Africa? Haven't had the opportunity.

    10. Ever run out of toilet paper at a horse show? Not at a horse show...

    11. Loved somebody so much it made you cry? Yikes. I sure have; tough times!

    12. Croutons or bacon bits? I love bacon bits-- because they're vegetarian! They don't taste that great, but the silliness is enough to make me like them on a caesar salad.

    13. George Morris or George Clooney? Morris, please. While I can appreciate the magnetism of Clooney, his vintage strikes me as a little inappropriate for me.

    14. What internal organ would you sacrifice for the horse of your dreams? You can function with something like 1/4 of a kidney, right? And who needs a spleen!?

    15. Favorite Movie(s): The top spot is split between Jacob's Ladder and Stand By Me.

    16. Favorite day of the week: Saturday for sure! My only day off from both school and work, and it generally involves lazing around watching silly documentaries with my lovely boyfriend.

    17. Favorite drink: Non-drinker here. Can't say no to homemade lemonade though.

    18. Favorite Restaurant: Oooh! This sushi place in my hometown, Minato, it's incredible. As for my current city-- a vegan restaurant called ChuChai.

    19. What is under your bed? I've only got a mattress on the ground-- so not very much!

    20. How many times did you fail your driver's test? Still haven't taken it; this city would be absolutely insane to drive in.

    21. Which single store would you choose to max out your credit card? As a starving college student, right now I'd have to choose the local bulk food store! I'd love to stock up!

    22. What do you do most often when you are bored? Lurk around on COTH of course; window [internet] shop for TBs; re watch favourite movies.

    23. Most annoying thing people ask you? "Did that [piercing] hurt?" It's innocent enough, but come on folks! Use some common sense! A piece of metal going through one's face doesn't go without some protest.

    24. What is your favorite fragrance? I think that question's above my pay grade... I like the smell of my dryer sheets, though.

    25. What's currently in your CD player? Mix CD from my best friend.

                                      11. Loved somebody so much it made you cry? For sure.

                                      13. George Morris or George Clooney? Neither one is completely my style, but I've met both and thought they were both nicer in person than expected. For dinner I'd pick Clooney, for a lesson, Morris. I'd prefer to have liposuction before doing either.

                                      14. What internal organ would you sacrifice for the horse of your dreams? I second the Appendix. My horse Sam, 10 years younger, and uninjured.

                                      16. Favorite day of the week: Don't have one. In my line of work, they all run together.

                                      19. What is under your bed? Dust bunnies, and sometimes my ancient, senile, deaf Beagle/JRT mix wanders under there and forgets where he is and I have to go haul him out.

                                      20. How many times did you fail your driver's test? None, but I passed both the written and the driving with the bare minimum score, LOL.

                                      21. Which single store would you choose to max out your credit card? The Mac Store, Amazon, or a tack store. For clothes, White House Black Market.

I have a world's lifetime supply of Safari, thanks to a zealous grandma excited to have something girly to buy, but I must admit 6 bottle in and 6 to go it's starting to wane.

                                      25. What's currently in your CD player? The itunes just shuffled Pink Floyd, Lady Gaga, Duran Duran, and The Phantom of the Opera while I was typing this, does that count?
