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!

  • Jingles for a barn horse

    It's not my horse, but the BO's mare that is in trouble. She was extremely sore and stiff yesterday, we all hoped it was a foot thing but couldn't find any swelling (she's a wall kicker). I went over tonight and found out that they think she may have ripped an internal stomach muscle.
    She nibbles food, but you can tell she feels like crap. She's had perfectly normal stool, so everything is still functioning.

    So please keep Lady in your prayers tonight and jingle for her! She's only 8, but there just isn't any way they can afford surgery nor do they think it is viable option as a habitual kicker who would likely just re-injure her self.

    Thanks!
    RIP Traveler & Tesla <3

        I have never heard of that either. But I can see how it could occur with a habitual kicker. Jingles for Lady and her owners and friends!!!

              Thanks for the jingles! as far as I know, Lady is doing better. I stopped in Friday before heading back home to say hi to my guy and check to see if Lady was still there. She was out in the round pen with her buddy...Moving slow still, and uncomfortable standing any other way then her right rear leg stretched behind her. I'll see her again Monday, and I hope she is still on the mend!

                Just a thought - I had a mare who kicked her stall at feeding time (she was a school horse when I bought her). She ended up injuring her stifle pretty badly and my vet was adamant that somehow the kicking be stopped - the problem was fixed (thankfully) when he asked the BO to make sure she got fed her grain first. Did the vet check Lady's stifle area by any chance? Anyway, glad to hear she's feeling a little better and still jingling for a complete recovery!

                  The feeding first makes so much sense yet, many people do not do that until something bad happens. My horse lives on an end stall in a barn that has one inside row and an outside row, they always go up the inside row first (and they use to not even feed the inside row first, they went all the way to the front of the barn to get the beet pulp then start at the front of the outside. Well my horse is on the outside row in the last stall (and the feed room is right behind the barn). He kicks really bad at feed time, and all they would do is yell at him, I asked one day "well why don't you just feed him first, since its not really out of the way" answer "but then he wouldn't get any beet pulp!" umm you still have to go past his stall with the beet pulp, and you can give it to him then. So it was a real fight, but luckily the lady who feeds in the morning usually was smart enough to just give him some of his food first and this works because hes usually out when they feed in the afternoon and comes in after there is food in his dish. But geez I didn't think it would be that complicated to give him a little food first!

                    Oh believe me, it would have been a major issue if my vet hadn't spoken to the BO himself. The witch that did the feeding would never have done it had I suggested it, but since he told the owner and her both to do it, it got done. I have no idea WHY it would be an issue - I guess any break in their routine is a problem for them - regardless of the welfare of a horse or two!

                        Actually, she kicks at any time...They are stalled everynight and while I am in grooming my guy, she'll just kick the wall randomly throughout the evening (she's on a row behind us, so she can't see me at all). She happened to have done her self in being impatient about going out that morning with her buddy. The BO has a routine, so she knew she was next...apparently just too anxious regardless.
