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!

    Tonight I am going to measure my TB Mare, Sarah Lynn who has lymphangitis and pick up a pair of the sleeves from Schneiders. I am hoping that they fill the void in between the hoof to hock wraps that she needs when she has a full blown flare-up. The other option is a custom made Juzo Equicrown full leg compression sleeve, so wish me luck and I'll post the success or not in the next few weeks.

      SAAcres and Mozart: When I still had my guy (seems we could form a club here!) I had wanted something like this. However, I noticed with him that sometimes he would fill up a lot above his wraps. Like his cannon area would improve but all the fluid would just get pushed higher up the leg and restrict the movement in his hock.

      I would have tried this, but I feel like this isn't something that would work all the time, every time. Turnout, exercise, and acupuncture got the swelling down in the entire leg every time.

        Might one of these be useful to you?


        I found them when my colt injured his hock. After it was nearly healed and I no longer needed it, naturally

          I saw a similar product at Aachen. It had a zipper, and they made one for hocks, too. It was, however, stupid expensive. I did think it was a good idea.
          I think this is it: http://www.equicrown.com/equicrownr.html

            from the sound of it, sounds like they might be more trouble than they're worth. I'd be interested hearing from people that have used them a significant amount to see if they're worth the cost and replacement of standing wraps.

              So did anyone end up buying and trying these? I'm curious because they would be great for a horse I'm riding now who stocks up a lot in the front legs when stalled.

                My friend bought them, used them twice and never again. They were a serious pain to get on her gelding.

                  I wish you could tag someone on here. I think AngFreda is using them on her old guy

                    I know the flexsleeve very well as it was developed where I used to live. They are very well engineered to what pressures belong where. They plastic wrap is merely a bag. No biggie. They can be a pain with large hoof, refined bone horses but, they truly are a more refined approach to wrapping. The key being consistency.

                      Silver dressing - that is what is used for burns on humans - works amazing...really great stuff.


                      • #31
                        I saw the flexsleeve at AETA last year but thought they were similar to the tendon grips that I use to protect my horse's habronema. They are a pain to get on and off, especially over a big hoof. I figure the flexsleeve would be a PITA also.
                        I am tempted to try the silver dressing. I am at a loss for trying to close up this damn habronema. Nothing works anymore, have even tried a different vet with a new medicine that he said would close it up. It hasn't. It cost a pretty penny too. The silver dressing is less expensive.

                          Hmmm...think she would be interested in selling hers?

                            Just used these. Thought they were great in the right circumstances, but probably not going to work for this current one.

                            Horse I tried them on would ideally be in hind standing wraps for the next two weeks as part of rehab plan. Horse HATES hind standing wraps and just kicks all the live long day and night with a standing wrap on. Or will eat it off. Lovely creature

                            Anyways, horse is fine with polos and work boots, just not a bulky wrap. I thought this would be the solution.

                            Pros were - she didn't mind them and didn't kick. Although they were not super easy to get on, they were quicker than wraps.

                            The first night they shifted down about two inches. This was okay because the cannon area does not have as much compression as in the fetlock area. Didn't create any issues or "bandage bow" type problems.

                            They were not that hard to get off once I figured out the best way to do that. Reapplied after hand walking. Next morning they were anklets! They entire wrap bundled up and in the pastern. This may have been because she is quite active in her stall/paddock combo or she may have messed with them. But, since I can't check on her wraps every few hours, I think it's safer to not use them anymore. I do think they'd work great at shows for putting on late at night just for the over night portion.
