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!

    But nothing verified or official.
    And so we wait...

    I know many horses in that area
    Do you know the dates of those clinics? I'm in WI and now feel like I'm going to vomit. Any chance anyone can confirm that none of the horses from the affected barn attended the Kim Severson clinic in Madison, WI March 1-3?

    • Does anybody know if it is worth giving the vaccine for the EHV-1? I know it protects against the non-neurological effects. Has anybody given it? What are the side effects?

        I assume you meant to type does NOT protect against the neurological effects because it doesn't. I am of the opinion that if your horse is due for it you should give it as usual provided there is no chance they have been exposed recently.

          • I give my guys the vaccine. I've never had a problem. They get everything at once and never any side effects but all horses are different. I will say we will be staying put, not even trailering to parks for rides much less the shows for at least the next month or so.

              • The UC Davis White Paper, which seems to have much better info than just what's on their website and can be found here http://www.vetmed.ucdavis.edu/ceh/do...WhitePaper.pdf has this to say about vaccination:

                "On premises with confirmed clinical EHV-1 infection (any form), booster vaccination of horses that are likely to have been exposed already is not recommended. However, it seems rational to booster vaccinate nonexposed horses as well as horses that must enter the premises with one
                of the four vaccines listed above if they have not been vaccinated against EHV-1 within the past 60 days. This ap- proach relies on the assumption that the immune system of most mature horses has already been “primed” by prior exposure to EHV-1 antigens through field infection or vaccination and can therefore be “boosted” within 7 to 10 days of administration of a single dose of vaccine.

                While this approach does not guarantee protection of individual horses against the potentially fatal neurological form of EHV-1, the hope is that reduced nasal shedding of infectious EHV-1 by recently vaccinated horses will indirectly help protect other horses by reducing the dose of virus to which they are exposed."

                      ETA: I'm seriously questioning the Shelby Co. report until it is confirmed. There was an EHV-1 outbreak in Shelby Co. LAST year, and we all know how FB timeline likes to bump posts up.

                      • TN

                        From TN Department of Agriculture:

                        Single EHV1 Case Reported in Tennessee - 3/6/2013 - The State Veterinarian for Tennessee has reported a single case of the neurological form of Equine Herpes Virus Type 1 (EHV1) in Shelby County, Tennessee. The case involves one premises which has been quarantined. The affected horse has been isolated and is under the care and observation of a veterinarian. Strict bio-security measures have been implemented to prevent any further exposure. An investigation into possible sources of the disease is ongoing. However, there appears to be no known connection to the current EHV1 outbreak in Florida, and state animal health officials have no reason to believe that other horses have been exposed at this time.

                                There is a group of dressage riders that board there who do travel locally. Everyone agrees it's probably not related to Florida's cases, however, the barn is not quite as isolated a community as the impression is coming across on the internet.

                                  • This whole thing scares the crap out of me. The "A" team of our barn is at our Florida barn for the winter and they are in the quarantine zone around the HITS grounds. Apparently they are still planning on being home March 20th. I talked to our vet today and they have to be cultured to be let out of the quarantine but she still thinks they should spend another 2 weeks in a separate barn back in wisconsin. I am pretty sure the BO won't do that though. The vet is bumping up the spring vaccine dates to have them done before they get back, but I'm just sick thinking about them returning. Probably overreacting, right?

                                      If your trainer is not willing to isolate the horses returning from Florida, could you possibly move your horse to another location for a couple of weeks?

                                        Move your horse for a couple of weeks? I would be giving my notice right there to leave. She obviously isn't concerned for the safety of all the horses.

                                          Wow, that's a big conclusion you've drawn. The horses in Florida will have cleared quarantine, had a negative result from a culture, and you say the trainer 'obviously isn't concerned for the safety of all horses'?
