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!

        I am completely excited to try this! I have a 4 yo stallion with ridiculous hair. I was going to let it just grow out, because he will not tolerate pulling - but I HATE long manes....

        He may be the ultimate experiment - even if it just improves I'll be happy.

          I just laughed out loud Sabovee--what a DARLING animal and that hair is precious. Gorgeous color too. He looks like a (handsome and talented) muppet in that hair. Please let us know how it turns out....he is just cute as pie.

              Dude, take a chill pill. I'm betting that everyone will spot test their horse to check for a reaction. And there must be people out there who don't react to Nair, or the company would've gone bust a long time ago.

                LOL, I was just thinking the same thing about sabovee's horse! What a mane! That's a lotta hair...but he looks cute as heck with it.
                I know, probably drives you bonkers though.
                Love his liver coloring too.

                ETA, just went to your site. Didn't realize he was a Cheval Canadian. So nice to see a liver colored one, he's very handsome.

                    It drives me craaazy - it's like three full manes on EACH side of his neck. You look down when you're riding and it's just HAIR! I've tried to pull it a bit at a time, it's akin to climbing everest with a group of 3 year olds...

                      Okay, I am going to try this on my bratty pony's mane as soon as the weather clears up a bit that I wont feel so bad washing it out.

                      I think there needs to be some kind of award for COTH's Best Horsekeeping Tip of the Year.

                      And I'll be sure to take pics.

                        I would be nervous about reaction too because my skin isn't a huge fan of nair and my horse has sensitive skin and gets hives easily, but then again he has a pretty easy mane to pull and keep tidy so I guess I don't have a problem! Now there are a few manes I can think of trying this out on because of thickness and hatred of mane pulling!

                          well i did it! i only used a little bit of it and got some hair out, but it did thin it and i think one more time and it will be perfect!

                          now his mane sticks straight up, but at least it will be braidable!

                          he didn't seem to mind it at all. his mane was pretty dirty, so that could have cause a little problem too. i will make sure it is cleaner next time.

                          i am thinking about braiding it so it will lay flat tomorrow. he looks like he has a mohawk! it is the same length for braiding, it just won't lie flat. His mothers is the same way. I just let hers grow out since she is just a pasture ornament for the moment!

                          thanks for the tips!

                            Another conversion to Nair achieved!!!

                            How easy! How effective!! Given that my new boy just got off the boat so to speak and that we've just conquered the fly spray demons I was really dreading trying to pull his monster mane. I left the Nair ("leg and body formula" I couldn't find bikini line) on for 10 minutes, then washed his mane.

                            Like Samotis, I'll probably do another pass with the Nair, but what a difference just this one time made!

                            Thanks again for the great tip.

                              Tried this to DISASTERIOUS RESULTS on Monday.

                              Applied Hair as directed... horse then shook his head. Nair EVERYWHERE. I immediately scrubbed with shampoo but hair was falling out in clumps. Horse is a DISASTER. He's BALD in many areas. Even if I roach it, he's going to look like he has some sort of illness.

                              I am sick to my stomach about what I did.

                              So, lesson learned. No Nair technique unless your horse will stand stock still for the entire time you're applying and waiting for it to work.

                                      I didn't see this thread the first time around, but as I was reading the first page, I sort of suspected as much as what happened to you. Especially the part about using it where the hair already parts. Smelled like disaster to me.

                                      So sorry, hope it grows back QUICKLY for you.

                                          So when I first saw this thread I was thinking "I really wish I would have seen it Saturday before I roached the top half of my DD ponies mane so I could tame the beast enough to braid it". Then I read vxf111's post and now I'm thankful I didn't. I could just imagine what the 11 6 year olds at my house on Sunday would have thought about a pony with patchy bald spots rather than a precious pony with braids done in hot pink yarn
