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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

      For the record it wasn't me.

      BUT, you are on the radar now. Cool and congrats to whoever did. When the mare goes down hill, THEN they will either take her away OR you will get a citation!

        Yeah, I don't think it was actionable by AC yet, but she is on the radar.

        Same thing happened to a neighbor. They didn't write a citation (although they really should have), but he feeds them now.

            Unless the people that HAD her have other animals that are suffering, the blame still falls upon you, Tina, as you are the care giver (or not) at this time.

              I think you lose the right to toss veiled insults at whoever called animal control on you when you turn around and send animal control after the previous caretakers.

              Presumably, whoever called AC on you felt as justified in that decision as you do in yours.

                  The previous people were starving her...a flake of hay is nowhere near what she needed.

                    No they won't. As long as there is feed on the property and water, AC isn't going to seize anything.

                    I'm assuming the OP has food and water on site.

                      Maybe for the feed and water. Really depends on the AC jurisdiction. Some are more strict than others.

                      In Kentucky, at least in my county...maybe, if you "know" someone you're likely to get a verbal warning.

                        Obviously you didn't do your homework to begin with by giving them this horse Calling AC on them is just ignorant.

                          I don't know in the Melborne area but in our area once AC is called out, the usually expect to see an improvement in the animal. Should said animal continue to go downhill, food or water be damned, they do go back in and seize the animal.

                              I checked them out just fine. No prior convictions of any kind and the husband made good money at a marina. Believe me...I do my research and I have lots of resources.

                              Unfortunately you just never know with people.
                              Really????????

                              I know plenty of people who don't have any convictions, make shit pots of money that I would not give a GOLDFISH to. You think that makes for a good reference?

                              How about hmmm, farrier references, vet references?? You ever think of looking into those?

                              Money doesn't make you a good candidate for horse ownership without knowledge.

                                BlondyB, I haven't chimed in on your other posts.

                                But you do realize that EPM is a TIME sensitive disease? Do you know this? Can you say you know this?

                                Dragging around, talking to communicators, chiros, people on chat boards are using up valuable time that could have been used to treat her for EPM.

                                Precious days that can mean the life or death of that sweet mare.

                                You can't get this time back, please, start treatment NOW, if you find out later she doesn't have EPM you can stop treatment-- no harm done. But plenty of harm done if you don't start it and keep dragging this out.

                                To be honest, if she does have EPM, you are probably a month behind in getting her cured. That is so sad. So much energy wasted, when you could have taken some of the advise COTHers have already given you and started treatment anyway.

                                I had a horse here that was having rear end "issues" the vet IMMEDIATELY started the horse on Marquis, even before getting results back, even though he knew it would only take three days for the results to come back, IT WAS IMPORTANT TO BEGIN THE TREATMENT ASAP, the three day wait time was TOO LONG!

                                Please reply whether or not you understand that EPM must be treated immediately, that way maybe everyone will know you really don't want to bother with it, and we can go on and help someone who really wants help and will listen to advise.

                                Good luck with your mare.

                                  Yes I just got back from barn and it was not me, no credit here, as if I knew where the mare was I'd have sent a vet. As NJR says, if there is hay and water, doesn't matter about the condition of the horse, AC will let it go.
                                  I presume someone who knows where BB and the mare are did it. However, now there is a record of animal control being out there, and easy to trace now for vet call.

                                        Kirsten did not do it as she did not know the address. I wanted address to send vet out on my credit card and she did not know address.

                                        And did lauraky get the address to which she should send the $$$ from the pool? I don't want it, give it all to care of the horse.
