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!

  • What if anything can you do with leftover/unused scripts (Legend/Adequan)...

    I have numerous unopened bottles and no horse to use them on. Called my vet, was told that they can't buy it back and that I should watch selling it, but that they'd give me a note stating I bought it from them, if needed to help sell it. I'd donate some of it, but I have numerous bottles, well over 1K in meds. I'd happily sell it at a discount and break it up, but I also acknowledge that isn't exactly proper. However, tossing 1K worth of unopened, unexpired meds seems so wasteful. I called 2 local rescues, neither had any use for it. Any ideas. I've seen some CL ads for stuff like this, but that seems risky too. I realize what I am asking is a bit odd, but there must be some horse person that's ended up with perfectly good leftover meds, what in the world do you do with them, besides toss them and call it a complete loss?

    They "can't" buy it back, or won't? Mine bought back my unused Equidone.

    I don't know that it's legal for you to sell it though, even with your vet's note - they are prescriptions and you're not a vet But who's to know if you do?

      In my state, it would be illegal for you to sell it AND illegal for me to take it back and dispense again. It would be up to our practice as to weather we gave you a refund for it but if we took it back we would have to destroy it or return it to the MFG as adulterated. I would keep it for further use on another horse or take it to your local pharmacy and put it in one of their unused medication disposal boxes.
      Michael: Seems the people who burned me want me for a job.
      Sam: A job? Does it pay?
      Michael: Nah, it's more of a "we'll kill you if you don't do it" type of thing.
      Sam: Oh. I've never liked those.

        Grataan, what constitutes "adulterated"? If a box/bottle is still sealed, is the issue the unknown temperature of the storage?

              When my gelding passed I had lots of left over medication. I asked my vet if he knew of any horses in the area that could benefit from them> He said that he did and I brought them to the clinic and he took them to the client that needed them. Basically I donated them

                  They said can't, that once it's left their hands, they can't legally buy it back or even take it for free and re-sell it, they'd have to destroy it.

                    That is exactly what they told me. Thanks for your input.

                      I called 2 of them, one said they would not have a use for it, the other said the same thing and that if they did, they'd have to have a vet administer it, for their tracking/records. Thanks for the idea though.

                        Thanks for all the ideas and suggestions, I really had never thought about getting rid of meds to be an issue, I was wrong, lol. I am going to call a few of the small animal vets, thanks for the PM about that, for some reason I had never thought of them, just large animal vets. I called several more local rescues and none were interested, basically they told me they don't have the funds to get a horse started on meds like this, even if initially the cost is free, because they can't do the maintanence. Again, thanks again for the feedback and ideas.

                            I have a 2yr old filly that has an eye ulcer & needs meds 4x a day - I'm considering trading her in right about now

                              ROFL, uh, no, but want another one, lol. There is one at my barn, she's nasty, mean and smelly, her name is Queenie, but to the dismay of the barn owners, I call her Fajita. Because in my mind, the only place she should be is in a fajita burrito

                                Even though it is sealed, it is still considered potentially adulterated. Remember the tylenol poisoning way back when? The bottles looked normal but had obviously been tampered with.
                                I have heard of addicts taking the tops off of morphine, etc bottles, taking drug out, then carefully gluing the tops back on so it was virtually impossible to tell the bottles had been opened. Due to liability issues, it is just a chance not worth taking.

                                So LEGALLY, you are stuck. But you may have friends that could help you out, under table.

                                        I'm in the same boat. I bought enough Doxy to treat my horse for lyme before I got the test result back. Both my vet and I were POSITIVE he had lyme again...turned out he had ulcers. I have 6 bottles of Doxy that expires in May, can't sell it, can't return it and out the $$$ in addition to having to treat for ulcers!!!
