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.

      My Arabian Willie rotated 10-12 degrees in both front feet with side sinking after foundering from the stress of two surgeries for penile cancer (three before it was all over), steroids, and complications from previously undiagnosed Cushings. (see Willie-partial penile amputation)Today he is back to being barefoot and sound to ride and take dressage lessons. We had excellent vets who worked closely with our equally excellent farrier to produce these wonderful results. While at the vet clinic, he was in ice boots, then soft-ride boots were used until we could get shoes on him, then we went through a series of wedge pads with wide shoes to support the side sinking and the shoot-in quick setting gel to support the frog and sole. We took radiographs every four weeks to see the progress, and changed the angles/shoes/pads/wedges according to what was seen on the radiographs. We kept regular shoes on him until 12 weeks ago and since his feet looked so good, decided to let him go back to barefoot like he was before his saga began. So far, so good. Hope you have equally good results.
      Massive jingles from Willie and me.

          We also had a mare with a 10 degree rotation. Do you know the cause? When did this begin? What is your vet advising? What have you done so far?

          Different things work for different horses. We have a great vet and farrier working with the mare the entire time. A little more information would be helpful.

          Best of luck.

            A lot of "rotation" is not bone rotation at all but rather just hoof capsule distortion, in other words the the laminitis causing swelling between the hoof wall and bone rotating the WALL forward away from the bone.
            Other times I have seen perfectly sound but club footed horses "diagnosed" as foundered because a club foot is technically 'rotated'.
            So there is a lot more information needed here. Is the BONE actually rotated down from the angle of the other bones? Is there bone sinking as well?
            Is the horse lame?
            How long has it been going on?
            What caused it?

            I have known many horses fully recover from laminitis and the resulting founder founder who initially had severe "rotation" between the hoof wall and the bone. And known plenty of others others that did not look rotated but had sunk badly and never recovered.
            Also, fully identifying and correcting the underlying CAUSE is one of the most important things to address. Without that, no full recovery of laminitis is possible.

                  Me unfortunately. Callie got dex shot, not IR. Laminitis and 3 to 4 degree rotation. Then later up to 15 degrees on both fores. My great farrier resectioned, and she lived. One year of roller coaster ride.

                  Get the soft-rides. I did not know about them back then or she'd have had them. Instead my farrier reversed her shoes and used pour in pads for months and months. I learned about soft-rides form eventgroupie2 and they are not like any other hoof boots. You can get them fedex overnight from Debbie and she is wonderful.

                  Get the isoxsuprine and the bute or banamine and naproxen and DAC yucca and a hoof supplement and settle in for the long haul.

                  My mare was NOT IR so I defer to others about that. But she did go on a diet, since she was an easy keeper TB mare, and switched from grain to seminole equi-safe and lost hundreds of pounds to get weight off of her hooves.

                  Then I went on line and read up on fructans and sugars and time of day for less of them in grasses. Callie stayed off of grasses for almost a year just in case. And she had to give up carrots, the only treat she liked.

                  And you'll get tons of conflicting info, shoes on, shoes off, feeds, etc. Get a vet and a farrier who have experience in SUCCESSFULLY treating founder.

                  Good luck. Be patient.

                    I agree with the soft ride boots. Shoes have their place and our mare was in them for a while, but she is now at a point where she is more comfortable in her boots. They are worth the investment.

                    We have used bute and naproxin, both helped. And, I have no connection with this vet, he is not even in the same state as I am, but his product has proved useful to our mare and his website has lots of good information. www.equinemedsurg.com.

                    Also, it's true, no carrots, apples, etc. Our mare gets Enrich 32 and beet pulp. She was not overweight, but it also did help her drop some pounds which did not hurt.

                    I second the fact that you will need a really good farrier and vet. Make sure they are willing to work together, cause they have to.

                    Good luck.

                      No known cause, horse began acting up under saddle. Was brought to large vet hospital for diagnosis.
                      did the actually diagnose LAMINITIS? (which is a CAUSE of founder but not founder itself)
                      They did body scans etc.
                      Well what diagnostic tests did they do on the FEET besides just Xrays? Hoof testers? Temporary nerve blocks? 'leverage' testing? did they find ANYTHING?
                      Vet recommended nerving, but I am not ready yet.
                      RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN TO A DIFFERENT VET. I can not believe ANY vet in their Right mind would recommend nerving for suspected founder(or for anything else except a last ditch retirement salvage for severe navicular disease) . That is about the most illogical thing I have ever heard.
                      We did corrective shoeing and will follow up with vet hospital tomorrow.
                      what exact kind if "corrective "shoeing?
                      Horse is coming home on Tuesday.
                      Please please can you post the X-Rays and the pictures of the feet?

                        This is kind of what I asked earlier, what does "acting up under saddle" mean? What tests were done and the whole nerve block thing?! Our mare had severe rotation, etc. It was a process with a wonderful vet and farrier. There is no quick fix. I think many of us could offer some helpful suggestions, but more information would be very helpful.
