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!

  • Also need some jingles for Tiger Bay

    He sustained a small cut last Thurs at his LF fetlock region. This AM there was some swelling, no heat though and no temp. Due to the swelling, I called the vet. He ultrasounded it, and was very concerned that the cut might have compromised the flexor tendon sheath. Ultrasound showed a scant amount of fluid within the tendon shealth as compared to the RF. Right now he is treated it conservatively with SMZ's because it is very mild but there may be an infection of the tendon sheath which is not good to say the least.

    If Tiger gets worse he needs to go the clinic where they will tap the tendon sheath, lavage it and treat with antibiotics. Vet did say if they couldn't get it under control he would have to go to Cornell for further treatment which would include going under general anesthesia which I immediately said NO.

    Much as I love this horse, he's going to be 22 yrs old in another couple days and has been retired for several yrs. I've had him since he was 7 so he's more than family but I can't rationalize further treatment at Cornell. If he were a younger horse in work, it would another story so PLEASE, send jingles for him. He's a good guy and deserves all those curb chains shaking for him.

    Thanks in advance.

            What about limb perfusion? I would look into it now, probably at Cornell. They did it to my horse after surgery, but they could just do it. Maybe worth looking into? Its sounds worse than it is, but they put on a tourniquet for about 30 min and inject antibiotics. They do this a few days In a row but its not as expensive or invasive as surgery.
            Good luck Tiger!!!

              Thanks for the suggestion. The vets have already suggested that. I think they can do this at GVEC and he doesn't have to go to Cornell.

              As of this morning, the swelling is down virtually 100%. The standing bandages sure helped. He's being very good about getting the SMZ's orally and not spitting too much on me! Still no increased temperature.

              I'm crossing my fingers he doesn't have to go the clinic. If he does, Black Points is loaning me another horse to keep Tiger's buddy, Kiwi Puzzle, company. Puzzle is already a loan from Black Points. Thanks Mary.

                    Thanks again all. Happy New Year to everyone.

                    So far Tiger is looking good. His temperature is normal and there isn't any swelling from over night (standing wraps on as he's shut in due to single digit temps). Still a bit off but it doesn't seem to stop him from doing a terrific gallop around the indoor.

                    Your jingles are working. Vet due back out Friday AM and hopefully, if he does another ultrasound, he won't see fluid.

                    Thanks again for the jingles.

                      The vet was out today and was glad to see Tiger trotting soundly and the swelling and tenderness gone. He wants him to stay on the course of the SMZ's (Monday morning last dose) and to keep the stable wraps on for a few more days, but feels he looks really good. Both he, the horse and I are VERY happy.

                      So COTHer's. thank you for your jingles. They worked!

                              Great that he's gaining ground so fast! I think it takes SMZ's forever to kick in, but they are far better than stabbing these poor beasts with Penicillin.

                              Absolutely keep up the course. I'd be willing to go extra days, but that's just me.

                                Ditto vicarious! He goes till Monday on SMZ's and is doing just peachy! So glad the Vet's decided to try the conservative approach AND that I couldn't get him to the clinic immediately for them to try to tap the little bit of fluid that they saw on the ultrasound.
