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!

  • Favorite cheap leave in products for mane/tail from hair care aisle?

    I know this has been discussed here before, but I am looking for something that I can spray in as a detangler that would also be moisturizing for tail, mane & skin under each.

    I looked at some today, but the selection in the store I was in was def. limited & most of the sprays had as much silicone as Show Sheen & the like.

          Pink may work well in the tail but I would not put it anywhere that it will come in contact with their skin. I tried it on my gelding because he has really dry skin in the winter time. The next day I was horrified when I took his blanket off and everywhere I had sprayed it on his body with was swollen like a welt (you could even see the wave motion I used to spray it on). My gelding isn't generally sensitive when it comes to his skin either. Never had him get hives from anything or even react to laundry detergent changes but pink did NOT work well for him.

                Fructis Sleek and Shine is a decent heavy duty leave in conditioner.

                Fructis Triple Nutrition Nutrient spray is a very light detangler that leaves a hint of shine and conditioning. Definitely no greasy feel. Smells really good,too!

                  I'm sorry, i'm not aware that pink had a spray?! Is it aerosol or a pump? The "PINK" i use is in a pink bottle, and is a LOTION...Literally...for hair

                    I've used the Pink lotion and the generic version from Walmart with great success as well.

                      It's an aerosol. Here it is.

                        Add 1/2 cup -1 cup a day of flax to the diet - much more effective for skin than any leave in product (especially ones that are pH etc balanced for human vs equine): note that mineral oil (which appears under various names & is widely used on the industry) is also drying.

                            I started using flax last spring, and although it was too soon to notice a change in summer coat, when their winter coats came in, my normally wire-haired-terrier resembling mare has a dense, soft, fluffy coat which she has never had in all my years of owning her.

                                I have picked up Biosilk at Costco, it's wonderful but needs to go into clean hair and not too much as it could be greasy.

                                  Thx everyone for your answers.

                                  I am looking for something to act as a detangler b/f brushing. I know that true quality of the hair isn't changed by anything you put on it. i just want something that isn't going to dry it out & make it prone to more breakage. I have been using show sheen & cowboy magic, both silicone products. I would prefer something that was more of a moisturizer.

                                  I have used argon oil in my own hair & most of the stuff for sale is mostly silicone, not much oil. (see ingredients list, pretty much any 'cone' is silicone'. I do like some of the styling products, though

                                  The lanolin product sounds tempting. I will try some of your suggestions & report back.

                                    Out of curiousity, I had my stylist (new term for "hairdresser") look at a few tail hairs. His opinion was that using conditioner on a horse's tail or mane hair was a waste of money. The hair is not porous and will not absorb anything. Conditioner won't coat tail hair the same way it does human hair.

                                    My horses have absolutely amazing tails. I use cheap shampoo, usually Orvus or whatever's on sale at Costco, the right type tail brush and Showsheen once a week. That's it.

                                      I tried the Pink aerosol on my horse a few years ago, and did not have great results from it. It left a greasy finish.

                                        Diluted mineral oil. Although now that I looked at the "PINK" aerosol--that appears to be mineral oil in a spray form...AWESOME!

                                        I've also used the "Olive oil sheen" spray that can be found at Target and most grocery stores. Works great too. http://www.sleekhair.com/ors03-15-9-..._d_15_d_9_d_oz
