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!

            Me too, on iPhone 5 with ios 6, my old iPad with antiquated system and on my desktop with IE10.

            But I got the paragraph and punctuation back...yippee. Had to click the little torn page logo for compatibility between older websites and newer browsers for that-but still have the stacked ads.

                • <nerd>Well, that's not necessarily the user's fault that the CSS for the BB doesn't display properly cross-browser. However, knowing how difficult it can be to code for multiple browsers, display resolutions etc....I do not envy the dev team here. Thank heavens they do as well as they do!</nerd>

                  Perhaps the poster could kindly edit the post to not include all the html pieces?

                  Has there been a response to the lawsuit yet? I'd be anxious to hear the counter-argument.

                  • If we keep posting about not being able to see the whole page and no one else quotes that part the next page should be readable.

                    • Don't know how she finds the time but kudos to Bonnie Navin for an excellent article. ( and sample contract) on the problems that may occur during an equine purchase and how to avoid them. Good job, and thanks to Ratemyhorsepro for the venue.

("If I am guilty of selling a foundered horse, it isn't really my fault. [Prior Owner] sold him to me that way, and I never knew he was foundered. So, [Prior Owner} should have to pay for whatever judgment is entered against me.")
                        I thought Interpleader was used not to bring another party into a lawsuit, but when, say, an insurance company owes somebody a payout, but two different people are suing and claiming they're each entitled to it. The insurance company can use Interpleader to pay the money into an escrow account, be dismissed from the lawsuit ("Look, we're not arguing that we owe someone the money, here it is, please may we be excused from the dinner table,") and then the lawsuit continues between the two claimants.

                          I think you're right, Martha - interpleader is where you're holding something that's the object of dispute and want to know who gets it; impleader is where you the defendant drag in another party who is (also) liable to the original plaintiff in the action.

                            Sigh. COTH isn't supposed to sound like school! As someone who has written a civil procedure final in all-too-recent history, paw's got it in one Impleader = defendant joins a third party who either shares or holds responsibility for defendant's liability to the plaintiff. Interpleader = defendant can bring in all parties with a claim to a certain stake so as to avoid multiple lawsuits.

                            • New documents added to ratemyhorsepro... very interesting and clarifies alot of what we were all pondering. She is alleging that the initial radiographs showed rotation and possibly a fracture, but she was given a report from the vet saying all clear on the radiographs. She left Heritage to go to a new trainer, who apparently noticed all was not well with pony and either redid rads or got access to the old ones (which is my assumption because she asserts that the initial rads did show rotation). I hope it's not true, but very scary if it is. Guess we will find out as it goes through the legal process.

                              • I just read through the new documents, too. They do answer much of what everyone has questioned here. If what the new documents state is proven as true, my heart bleeds for that pony. This could get ugly...

                                  Comment


                                  • Wow. It sounds like the new trainer got his/her hands on the ppe xrays. A couple things I wonder, that aren't explained. It is also mentioned that they learned the pony had been blocked at Pony Finals - how did this become known? Interesting to me that the drug screen showed robaxin.

                                      Second, help me understand why a vet would lie. I'm not saying this one did or didn't, but why do something that would shoot you in the foot and kill your career if it ever came to light?

                                        That is what confuses me too.

                                          There is NO reason for the vet to lie.

                                          I have no inside knowledge about this specific case, but there is NO incentive for the vet to fudge anything. This vet in particular probably does hundreds if not thousands of pre-purchase exams every year. It makes no difference to him if someone buys this pony, or the next one. Or the next one. Or the next one.
