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!

    New to the forum but as the owner of 2 dogs I cannot imagine what I'd do if either of them were lost. Hope this helps!
    I think the stripe between the eyes is too wide to be Andy. And it looks like in the comments on the pic that the dog has already been identified.

    Jingling for Andy's return! I really hope they find the little guy safe and sound.

      No, this is not Andy.

      This little guy's (about one year old) name is George. Unfortunately, George did not have the best owner. He is up for adoption now. His adoption info and story can be found on Petfinder.com

      I hope he finds the loving owner he deserves.

        "Semi Good News Update":

        Andy was spotted last night (Tuesday 1/10 at about 10:00pm) behind Pet Supplies Plus on Post Rd on the Westport/Southport line!

        PLEASE continue to share so that people are aware and stay on the lookout for him. Bad weather is coming (as if the below freezing temps weren't enough) and we want to have him reunited soon!

        Might also be worth mentioning in case someone finds him and tries to catch him ... he knows the word "cookie" for a treat/bribe! Pet recovery experts recommend "smelly" foods to help catch him - in particular, hot dogs - (since they are very aromatic and can be broken into several pieces easily).

        There is a substantial reward for his safe return.

        His info, photos and updates can be found on the Facebook page "Bring Andy Home":

                I'm surprised he hasn't been caught yet if he's friendly and people keep spotting him. Especially behind a pet store- there should be no shortage of concerned people (or dog treats) there.

                  No, not found yet. But we are encouraged to have another sighting last night. (The last sighting before that was an entire week ago on Wolfpit Rd in Norwalk). Andy's owner spoke with the man who saw him and showed him several photos of Andy. The man is CERTAIN that it was Andy.

                  Glad to have a direction and area in which to concentrate search efforts and continue to spread the word with loads of flyers.

                    Not sure that the guy who saw him last night tried to catch him? I think he just reported the sighting. He is normally very friendly. However, not sure how scared and timid he might be after a week in the wild on his own in a strange town.

                    And sadly, this is only the second sighting we have had of him. The first one was a whole week ago yesterday in the Wolfpit Rd area of Norwalk. So having someone spot him again yesterday is renewing our hope that he will be found and reunited with his family.

                    At midnight, his owner left her scented clothing and dog treats in the location he was spotted. Word is there is a bagel shop right there too so hopefully he has found a food source and will return . . .

                    PLEASE continue to share so that people are aware and stay on the lookout for him. Bad weather is coming (as if the below freezing temps weren't enough) and we want to have him reunited soon!

                      This is killing me and he isn't even mine. I am in PA so I can't come help look for him but I really want to.

                      Someone needs to stick with him when spotted and call his owner. How hard can it be to follow a corgi with 3 inch legs?

                        I will be down that way on Saturday (unfortunately locked in my office until then) and can take a spin around if he is not found before then

                          That would be best!

                          However, not sure that someone would have the owner's contact info on them - especially someone out tending to their business rather than someone who was out purposely searching for Andy. But, people could keep an eye on him and CALL THE POLICE! I suspect everyone knows how to dial 911, they just don't think of it. Police, animal control and shelters ARE aware and could contact the owner.

                            The owner's contact information is not going to magically appear hovering above the dog as it trots around in the bushes behind the petstore. Unless the spotter is aware of this coth thread or the fb feed, he would have to do some research to even find out that there ARE search efforts in place for this dog. Even if the spotter is aware, he would still have to have a smartphone handy or to have kindly added a strangers number into his phone when the notice went out on the off chance he might see the dog a week later.

                            Of course I am sympathetic to the dog and owner, but when people start posting "how hard is it to follow a corgi" when somebody DID spot the dog and DID take the time and effort to research and report it, it gets a little silly. Nobody OWES it to anyone or "NEEDS" to stop drop everything and follow this dog around the neighborhood. The spotter performed a KINDNESS, not an OBLIGATION.

                            eta I think the dog's personal connections are doing a great job of asking for help in a non-alienating manner.

                                Good to know it is right around the corner. I faxed them his PetAmberAlert poster last week. I am not sure if they have been contacted again today. I will fax them the poster again - I wasn't able to find an email for them.

                                  If someone finds a stray animal without a collar or tags, it's not that hard to just call the police, and wait with the animal until the police or animal control shows up. I've done that more than once.

                                  I wonder if there's a local Pony Club or Girl Scout troop you could appeal to for help. Maybe they could help with a search on Saturday, or hand out/post fliers at all the shops in the area.

                                      If he was seen near a PetsMart, maybe someone there has seen him and has slipped him treats or nibbles. It's the kind a place where food would be available. Has anyone called the store and informed them about him and left a contact #? Since it is a pet supply store, it's customers are inclined to be sympathetic to the plight of both Andy and his owner.

                                      I'm going to update the info I posted on my FB page with a mention of his most recent location.

                                        Yes, I do believe that the store where he was spotted is aware of the situation.
