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!

  • Oh where, oh where has the antihist gone!?

    I have been using antihist for my pony great success and just noticed that I cannot find it anywhere...

    I'm guessing it is off the market for some reason, but does anyone know why?

    Try searching for "Anihist."

      haha well I spelled it wrong on here, but still the same problem; the anihist is gone

        You are right--appears to be discontinued by the manufacturer. Bummer.


        • #5
          Some websites say it is on backorder, on others it just shows as unavailable. Have you tried contacting the company? It's still listed on their website. Here's their email: animed@ahcpinc.com.

            I haven't been able to find it either and I'm starting to get a bit concerned for my older guy. Spring will be here before you know it and he can't do Trihist. I'm wondering if this has anything to do with the crack down on OTC human cold/allergy meds due to the meth labs

            If anyone hears anything, please post. I may contact the company myself too.

              I've used it for years on my horse with RAO, and also can't find any. I hope they bring it back, there are a lot of people who use it. My horse also can't do Trihist, I think it's the pseudophedrine.

                Quick reply from Animed

                Here's the response I got when I inquired:

                Good Afternoon SkipHiLad4me,

                Thank you for being a valued AHC/AniMed product consumer. We are extremely proud of our product line and back it 100%. We have voluntarily suspended production on ALL of our Antihistamine products due to an Administrative issue that arose following an FDA Audit. We have taken measures to resolve this "paperwork" issue and are very optimistic that production will resume shortly after the first of the year. We are currently compiling a list of all of our consumers interested in these products so we may alert them once production status has changed. We have already placed your name on that list.

                The only place that we have heard of that might have any of our antihistamine products in stock is Tractor Supply. You might want to contact your local store for possible availability.

                Again, thank you for being such a valuable customer and for your product endorsement.

                My guy has mild RAO also and it tends to flare in the spring/summer when the allergens kick in. When we've been late in starting him on his Anihist before in the spring, he spent all summer coughing and wheezing and we had to go for a couple of rounds of dex just to keep things manageable. Very upsetting - I don't wanna go back there I hope it's back on the market soon. I haven't seen it at my local TSC but maybe some others out there have it.

                  Have you tried 20,000mg/day of MSM as an alternative until you can get the Anihist back? Supposedly it can help with allergies in that dosage. I had a horse on Anihist 3-4 years ago (sensitive skin/bad allergies w/ sneezing and coughing/head shaker), and when I couldn't do the Anihist during show season I did the 20,000mg of MSM instead. It didn't work as well as the Anihist, but was MUCH MUCH better than how he was on nothing at all! Cheap and worth a shot?

                    I thought I just saw some at my local co-op...I will be going there tomorrow and will check, I'd be more than happy to ship it to anyone who needs some.

                      Goforagallop can be our new anihist dealer
                      Hopefully it will be back soon! I already give mine msm so maybe ill try giving the pony the higher dose of that and see how he does..


                      • #12
                        Yes we double dose his MSM in the spring/summer months also. It definitely does seem to help him but using that in combo with the Anihist seems to be the ticket for him.

                          Any word on the AniHist? I know that previously that there was some information that the company would be starting production again in January.
                          I am down to my last little bit and I haven't found a satisfactory replacement. I have tried Cough Free in the past and my horse will not eat it.

                          Should I just try a high dose of MSM and see if that works?
                          I am going to put in a call to my vet to see what he thinks would be a good replacement. I'll let you know if I get any good information.
