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!

    Just a bit of info I got from some one "in the know"...human tattoo artists use a higher quality ink that it pretty permanent. Vets tend to use ink like race horse tattoos, dog ID, etc. That ink breaks down and disappears over a much shorter period of time.

      Does anyone mention what dye they use? I'd imagine some would be better than others. I know some humans who have tattoos that only show up under black lights. That leads me to think there would be some dyes that would be more helpful. For example uv resistant dye ( if it exists). Of course you'd have to research it to make sure the dye itself doesn't cause problems ( ie cancer causing).
      Do football players use reflective "makeup" or do they use absorbing "makeup".

      Interesting aside, they are experimenting with a tattoo that changes color according to your sugar or insulin levels for diabetics. I think it also works under black lights.

        Horse eyeliner practitioner

        Hello!
        I just saw your post about horse eyeliner. I am a new practitioner in the field of equine micro-pigmentation. I have been in the tattoo field for 12 years as a teacher/owner of my tattoo schools, The Tattoo Learning Center. (www.tattoolearningcenter.com) I even had my own TV show on TLC ("Tattoo School") in 2011.
        I have thirty years experience as a horse owner.
        I will fly/travel across the USA to your farm for this procedure and will try to keep rates affordable.
        Visit my new page: www.horseeyeliner.com
        I am excited to blend my two passions: tattooing and horses!

          Better yet, do not breed or buy bald-faced horses. (Who wants a horse that looks like a holstein cow!?) Does a fly mask not offer enough protection? That would seem a better solution than an expensive procedure in a delicate area.
          Edited to correct cattle breed. I was thinking of Hereford, and mis-typed Holstein, sorry. Yes I know some people like the bald-faced look, but in selecting it those people should think long-term of how that may affect the breed over time, as the traits selectively bred for are not always in the best interests of the animal or breed.

            What a rude post.
            Some people actually like the bald faced look and don't think their horse looks like a Holstein cow.
            I would think that if you breed for paints/pintos you always have a chance to get a bald faced horse even if neither parent is bald faced. So should people just not breed paints or pintos? How about sabinos?
            Oh, well, clearly you're not thoroughly indoctrinated to COTH yet, because finger pointing and drawing conclusions are the cornerstones of this great online community. (Tidy Rabbit)

              Hereford cattle breeding has placed an emphasis on pigmented faces/udders for the last 20 or more years.
              That pink skin around the eye makes Hereford cattle much more susceptible to what is commonly known as 'cancer eye'. Pink skin on an udder, especially in geographical areas where snow is common at calving time, can result in a cow with a sunburned udder that is so painful she will not allow her calf to nurse.

              I think it is completely appropriate to select against white skin on the face of horses.
              I have a small herd of ranch horses, they live outside 24-7, and even with the opportunity to shade up, they will be outside in the sun. Fly masks and sunscreen are not something I am willing to 'manage', to have a horse with sun-sensitive pink skin on its face.

              Obviously, some people think it's attractive to have a bald-faced horse. And there are many horses living 'inside' full time, and owners fully willing to put the time and effort into keeping their pink skin out of the sun.

              I may be in the minority, but I do believe pink skin around a horse's eyes should be considered an undesirable characteristic in horse breeding.

                And, to add a thought to the bald-face horse potential problems...
                They are often deaf.

                Not all blue-eyed, white faced horses will be deaf, but is another trait that should be considered a genetic fault.
                Doesn't mean you never breed a deaf horse, but there should be selection pressure against the genes that cause deafness in horses.

                  The equine hospital here will bring in a human tattoo artist to work on the horses. The veterinarians handle the sedation while the tatto is applied.

                    On the off chance your horse will need an MRI, "Tattoos can hinder an MRI scan depending on the ingredients used in the tattoo ink and the size of the tattoo"

                    Worth discussing with the vets too.

                      Then should we stop the breeding of Appy's also?

                        I discussed the topic of eye Tattooing with my Vet, regarding my POA who lost one eye to Uveitis and has a chance of developing it in the other eye.

                        She recommended against the eye tattoo and suggested keeping the "Horseyshade" mask I currently use. Essentially saying they do the same thing to keep the UV Rays at a minimum.
