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!

  • Must Find Andrew

    Andrew, known to all his friends as Andy, is an 11 yr old Corgi, best friend and loyal companion. While visiting friends on New Years Eve, Andy took fright and ran to escape the noise, lights and heavy blasting, lighting up the night around 11 pm. Last seen on Guard Hill Road, top of Clinton Ave/Ford Road, Westport, CT.
    PLEASE, please help us find Andrew, he is an important family member! Contact Jordina Ghiggeri's cell phone 781 264 5243.

    Please PM for photos

    Posting this on my FB. Also repost on the Menagerie board, which is more dog-related.

    Also emailed to my sister in law who lives in Greenwich.

          Hi Guys
          I did post in Menagerie column - also went in to edit title as suggested but how is the question ? I can edit body but didn't see how to edit Title. Did it this way I wanted it to catch the reader's eye .
          He was seen last night on Wolf Pit Ave Norwalk, CT - about 5 miles in a straight line from where he ran from fireworks. Andy is 11 yrs old, well traveled, never had issues like this before. He is super friendly, loves children, dogs and I am sure will head for any stable looking for his family.

              Click on edit, then click on advanced, and you can edit the title.

              You might also want to post a link to his picture.

                That is a long way for those short little Corgi legs to travel. Have you called the barns in the area as well? Maybe someone in one of them took him in.

                  Here is link to his photos and owners facebook page

                  https://www.facebook.com/4furrykids?...rykids?sk=wall

                  I am going to leave the title - it says it all 'Please Find Andrew'.

                  Come on guys - you have found so many that have been lost, now we need to find Andy. He lives in Plymouth Mass and was visiting extended family in Westport CT when he panicked. Someone recognized him on Wolf Pit road in Norwalk, 5 miles away. He has to be somewhere. He loves, loves, loves kids & dogs and he knows Mom will be somewhere around horses, so he will be looking for her for sure.

                    Most people on this forum will think it refers to a sold horse, not a lost dog.

                    Why wouldn't you make it as clear as possible, and especially include the location, to improve the chance of success?

                      I clicked on the thread thinking it was a cool show name for a horse. Almost didn't read the first post entirely until I realized it was about a lost dog.

                      Is he microchipped? If he's chipped with a HomeAgain chip, they will fax and email every member, shelter, and clinic a flyer with his picture and info within a 15 or so mile radius of the location he went missing from.

                      Sam: A job? Does it pay?
                      Michael: Nah, it's more of a "we'll kill you if you don't do it" type of thing.
                      Sam: Oh. I've never liked those.

                        I assume you have contacted the police departments, pounds, local newspapers, Craigslist and vets in the area?

                        They are the people most likely to be involved with a lost dog.

                        Is Andy microchipped? ANY more information will help find him.

                        Today a lost German Shepherd was wandering around my farm. He had a collar with a rabies tag from Canada. He has been returned to his vacationing owners because of the tag.

                        Hopefully concerned people (like we all are) will find him and recognize that he is a lost, but much loved pet.

                          According to an account I read somewhere, he is microchipped but without a collar. It may have said he slipped the collar when he got scared.

                            Has anyone checked to see if he is on his way home? I was just watching the Today Show, where Ollie the corgi was presumed lost with his young owner, who was killed in an avalanche. Four days later Ollie was sitting outside the door of the hotel where his owners had been vacationing when the young man was lost. Andy may be on his way home to Mass.

                              As one who has been active in trying to spread the word and help find Andy, I must agree with above posters regarding the title of the thread. As someone familiar with the story, the title intrigued me enough to click on it - if I was not familiar with Andrew's plight, I probably would not have. That said, I will start a new thread with, hopefully, a title that may encourage more people to check it out. The more people we can make aware of the situation the better.

                              For those following this thread that may not be able to view the Facebook link (as I know some of you are at work and the site is blocked ),

                              Please visit www.PetAmberAlert.com where you can find a flyer with his picture and contact information. If I post a link, it doesn't seem to work properly as the site has each animal's flyer done as a pdf file. However, to make your search for him on there SUPER EASY you should know the following: Name - Andy State - CT Zip Code - 06851

                              There is a SUBSTANTIAL REWARD available for his return.

                              Additional info: Collar is no longer on him. He DOES have a microchip so a quick scan can identify him and provide contact information. The area he ran from is NOT familiar to him. He was on vacation there and normally resides in another state.

                              He is dearly loved and greatly missed. Please forward this information to everyone you know - you never know who may know someone in the Westport/Norwalk, CT area. Every pair of eyes helps!

                                Oh Lord I hope not . . . true home (in Massachusetts) is approximately 200 miles away - and that's via Interstate 95.

                                However, his owner has been able to remain in the "home" in Westport from which he ran while she tries to find him. She has put clothing items with her scent on them out in the yard and such (along with food and water) in hopes that he will find his way there.

                                  Yes, I know he lives in Mass., but its not unusual for a dog to make his way home, despite long distances.

                                    I shared the FB page on mine. I have lots of friends and family in NE (Plymouth in fact for many) so maybe someone will see the little guy.
