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!

  • H/J Trainer's Corgi Is LOST in Fairfield County, CT - *UPDATE 12/19/12*

    Well known (and loved!) Massachusetts Hunter/Jumper trainer Jordina Ghiggeri (who works for River Wind Farm) is desperately trying to find her LOST CORGI. There is a SUBSTANTIAL REWARD available for his return.

    Andrew (aka "Andy") was with Jordina visiting in Westport, CT when he got spooked by fireworks on New Years and ran. He has not been found.

    He ran from the top of Guard Hill Rd (near Clinton Ave/Ford Rd) at around 9:30pm. He was reportedly seen on Tuesday in the Wolfpit Road area of Norwalk, CT (about 4 miles away from where he started)o

    The area he ran from is NOT familiar to him. The area is not "home". He was on vacation there and normally resides in another state. Thanks to the generosity of River Wind Farm, Jordina has been able to remain in Westport to find him. But she needs help!!! Anyone with any possible sighting or information should call her cell phone at i81-264-5243.

    Andy is 11yrs old, loves people (especially kids) and dogs, and is very friendly. He no longer has a collar on. His is microchipped and a quick scan will identify him as well as provide contact information for Jordina.

    i people have been kind enough to post his status and photo(s) on their facebook page. However, I know that many of you read this forum while at work and your work has blocked Facebook. Please know that you can find him and his information through other avenues. A quick Google search for "Andy Lost Dog Westport" will find you several options.

    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


    Andy now has his own Facebook page, "Bring Andy Home". It includes several photos to help someone recognize him (and get an idea of what a wonderful guy he is).

    http://m.facebook.com/home.php?__use...user=743913610


    *Please know that you don't have to remember the contact phone number of 781-264-5243. Just remember to go to www.PetAmberAlert.com and you can find the number there on his flyer.*

    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!

    I would suggest editing the thread title to include a location. People from that area are more likely to notice the thread that way.

      Perhaps you could combine your efforts?

        That was the "original" post. However many of the few responses received indicated that they felt that the title wasn't helpful in indicating what the thread was about. As I was not the OP I could not change the title. The OP seemed to feel it was appropriate and did not want to change it. Therefore, in the best interest of Andy, I created a new post (as I indicated in the other thread).

        The other thread is right below this one because I recently posted information there that I thought might be helpful to anyone who read it. If the mods want to combine them I don't have a problem with it . . . I just want to reunite Andy and Jordina.

          Thank you for your suggestion. I have added the Westport/Norwalk area to the title.

          I just hope that people outside that area will read it as well and pass the information along. You never know when a friend, or a friend of a friend, might know someone in that area. Every person we can make aware that he is LOST and not a stray or the dog next door is one more that may potentially spot him and help get him reunited with his family.

          You don't have to know them to understand that the family is devastated by this and fears greatly for his well-being. Even to those who don't know Jordina and her husband, the tv news report done by Channel 12 on Tuesday illustrates just how evident that is.

                  Thank you! The more people who are aware, the better chance he has of being reunited with his family.

                    Yes, I believe they were faxed his PetAmberAlert poster.

                    Other stables that were listed in the area were emailed his photo and information. I am sure there are some that were missed, but we did what we could from a Google search.

                        Maybe send a flier to Beval's in New Canaan, too, and ask them to post it by the front door.

                          Thank you!!! Unfortunately he is still missing so we still need many eyes on the lookout for him.

                            I emailed the info and photos to them a few days ago. Not sure if they put it up or not. Maybe someone here has been to the store and knows? I am hours away and doing what I can from here.

                              Just a bump for this thread. It is too important (and near and dear to my heart) to not stay near the top in hopes that more people will be aware and share.

                                Bump and passed the flyer along to my brother-not far over the state line in NY and has coworkers who live in CT and might be in and around the area.

                                  My husband travels between Westport and Norwalk fairly frequently so he'll be looking too.

                                  I was at Beval today but I don't remember if I saw the flyer

                                    Another tip I've heard is to talk to the mailmen in the area about keeping an eye out. They're walking or driving around the neighborhood all day, and going to every house.

                                      Im sure this has been covered, but have you called the pounds in the area? And search petfinder, a pound may post there to place a dog? Just a thought.
