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!

  • Where to buy Centaur wool sheets?

    Based on my budget and COTH reviews, I think I need to go ahead and order the Centaur wool sheet. I'm tired of shocking the poor boy with the fleece! So someone tell me where I can order the sheet and how true the sizing is? I have one that wears an 82 and one that wears a 84 in their blankets

      That's the least expensive I've found. Sizing runs in ranges (horse/pony, etc.) so if your horse is borderline, probably safer to go bigger

      ETA...Not sure what size your horse is, maybe this would work? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Centaur-fanc...item2326d720b1

        Looks like a number of places have it - google "Centaur wool cooler". Not sure which place is best. My tack store ran out, but I used to have a nice plaid one. I can't remember the sizing, which tells me it doesn't stand out as being oddly short or long for the size on the label.

          They don't advertise it as such, but this wool sheet from Smartpak is a Centaur: http://www.smartpakequine.com/wool-d...x?cm_vc=Search

          And on sale for $70 to boot, although limited colors.

          I have two of them, in gorgeous plaids, and have been quite happy with them. (Although I don't use them regularly.) Worth the full price tag, certainly worth it if you find them on sale.

          Like the other user, nothing sticks out in my mind about their sizing, which means they're pretty normal.

            ahhh.....would love to have a plaid one! My boys are 82 and 84 - the sizing has 78-82 and 84-88. That 88 worries me a little. It sounds HUGE!

            any advice on sizing?

              I ordered the large for my guy who is a 78" and I was worried it would be enormous. I even called and asked the rep. He said to go with the size chart so I did and I'm glad. There's definitely room for a larger horse (he is quite narrow), but I think a size down would have been too small. I would go with a large and an extra large- the nice thing is that they have a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so they'll exchange it for you (I think for free) if the sizes are wrong.

                Faybe- I'm thinking of sharing this cooler between the two horses. Do you think the L would be too small for my size 84? The XL going up to an 88 worries me

                  If you are near Middleburg, VA, you should check the used tack shop - www.middleburgtack.com. I bought a "used" Centaur wool sheet that still had the tags on it for $40. It was the black cooler with the lavender and silver trim on it.

                    Dover has their wool dress sheets currently on sale for $70.

                    Link

                    They look nice, have sizes up to 84.

                    Actually I'm seriously considering getting one.

                    I do not need another blanket. I do not need another blanket. I do not need another blanket......

                    Even with their crazy shipping, it would probably be less expensive than a centaur one? Maybe?
                    come what may

                        I think it could work- it might be a little short in the rump, depending on how filled out the 84 is. Here's a picture of our guy in his, he's a 78 and quite slab sided: https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphot...86802911_n.jpg

                        Like I said, Smartpak is awesome about returns/exchanges. I ordered one monogrammed and they said if it didn't fit, just call, they would make it right (because I was worried about the sizing as well and expressed that to the customer service rep). If you ordered one and it didn't fit both, they would take it back or exchange it easily, I'm sure.

                          Thanks for the great picture. I found the navy plaid at Adams Horse Supplies. Crossing fingers it fits. I know my guys will appreciate not being shocked anymore!

                            So, it appears that the navy plaid is sold out at Adam's too. Darn! I really don't want the standard colors with standard trim. Maybe I could buy the solid and redo the binding.....
