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!

    If anyone out there has small feet, here's a great buy on brown Dehner field boots:

      Corky, did you ever have any luck selling your boots?

        PSA: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Beautiful-Br...ht_3274wt_1270

        I'd buy them but my tree trunk legs prohibit it.

          Should brown field boots for fox hunting have toe caps,punched or not?

            Back on the Hunt!

            Has anyone had any dealings with Stoob International? I was just about ready to place an order, then I noticed that they actually cribbed parts of their website directly from Dehner! Talk about a red flag. That really sucks because they appear to have my combo of big foot, large calf, tall leg, low price.

            Sadly, I'm going to have to sell the pair of lovely brown Dehners I just bought from a fellow COTHer. That makes two pair I have taunting me from the closet. The sound of brown field boots going "neener, neener, neener" is unbearable.


            • #86
              I posted a thread about these in Off Course a few months back and got zero responses, but has anyone tried these:


              They just came out a few months ago, but I think that brown color has the chance of being quite lovely. I'm sure they're not gorgeous quality for the price, but the price is part of the appeal.

              So is the fact that they'd geared towards shorties, like me!

                  Here is a nice pair of brown Dehners with no reserve. Someone could end up with a nice deal. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dehner-brown...#ht_500wt_1413


                  • #89
                    Darn you, SLW! I was watching those and now I have competition!

                    Actually, I have Brown Dehners that I snagged on eBay, but they're really a bit tall on me, so I'm watching these for something a little shorter.

                      Oops, sorry!!


                      • #91
                        I've been eyeing those too. other than I REALLY REALLY do not need another pair of riding boots, they are too beautiful. And my size if I measure my own dehners...

                        But I'm feeling poor so will likely get outbid.


                        • #92
                          It's OK, SLW. The pair I have are very nice. The cuff lining needs repair, and I've written to Dehner, so I can always have them cut down a bit when they do the repair. But I don't think I'll have time to complete the repairs before cub hunting, so I'll just have to bear the discomfort of too tall boots a little longer.

                              Dehner brown field boots in good condition. Ladies size 8. Give me a call for measurements and photos. These are nice boots just in time for cubbing season! $200.00 717-765-4114

                                OK, I might be back on the hunt for brown boots. I've been corresponding with Dehner about the pair I bought on eBay. Besides being too tall, the leather of the cuff lining is dry and crumbling away. So I wrote to Dehner to see if they might be able to repair the boots. Unfortunately, they can't because my boots were made in......December, 1968!!
                                So I am older thatn the boots, but not by a lot
                                Dehner suggested I just keep wearing them until they go. But when I'm in VA in the fall, I might have Journeyman's leather take a look at them. The outside leather is in pristine condition, so I hate to give up.


                                • #96
                                  I nearly posted about some boots I saw on eBay a couple of days ago, and then I thought "hmmmm.... what if one of our rank is watching them, waiting to pounce...and them somebody has to go and blab..." So I didn't mention it. Tough call here--do we tell all and hope a COTHer scores the deal, or do we keep mum, so we don't wreck a find for someone?

                                  My search has at least a temporary hiatus. I found an interesting pair of Ariat Rydal boots, bought them from eBay and they FIT! Kinda cute--not at all correct for hunting, but good for hacking, hound exercise, perhaps toodling around Spain and Ireland in the rain. Kinda cute because if you wear a size 11/12 shoe, it's never really cute.

                                    An ex-Master of my acquaintance is now 93. His Dehner boots were 50 years old when we were still hunting together in the mid-to-late '80s. As far as I know, they're still in good shape. I guess the quality had slipped between the 1930s and the 1960s if yours are failing after only 44 years!

                                      I believe that if mine had been used regularly for all of those 44 years, they would have been just fine. I had a saddle that was 60 years old and in wonderful condition. Sadly, it seems that my boots were not used at all, and the lining just dried out. I'll keep oiling them as well as I can and see how long I can keep them going.
                                      Perhaps I should ask your ex-master the secret of his boots' longevity.
