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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums’ policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

  • Please call Chewy.com and ask them to carry Triple Crown Senior

    I'm starting an online campaign (unofficial) to ask Chewy.com to carry Triple Crown Senior. Since it is kind of a Purina product (let's not debate this on this thread please) they should be able to get it in providing TC allows them to sell it (they are very picky about their dealers.).
    So if a lot of people call Chewy.com to show that they want them to carry TCS and TCC, it might just persuade TC to allow them to.
    Here's the number: 18006724399

      Right?! But you gotta admit, it's pretty awesome that they carry horse stuff And they are an awesome company to deal with as a consumer.
      when I lost 2 of my horses last year to bad feed, they refunded all of my orders of the feed since I bought it from them. And sent me a card too.The feed companies didn't do anything.

        Oh, wow... I had no idea you could get those compressed bales delivered!
        (I used to buy them at Tractor Supply to feed to the rabbits... the price is about the same.)

          Purina has nothing to do with where Triple Crown is distributed. Triple Crown decides where their product goes. You would be better to call Triple Crown and ask them to seek distribution through Chewy.

          My bet would be it will not happen due to the fact the feed is textured. Chewy currently only carries pelleted feed products, and that is probably because they have a longer shelf life that textured feed.

          You would have much more luck finding a dealer in your area that either already carries Triple Crown or find one willing to do it, which is not easy. The closest reputable and reliable Triple Crown dealer to me is 65 miles away. I planned accordingly and pick up feed every three months.

            I thankfully don't have to go that far for it, but I admit that when they stopped carrying it locally, I checked Amazon

              I wouldn’t buy TC through Chewy so I’m not sure it’s fair for me to ask them to carry it. I suspect carrying it would be a loss for them.

              Why not call TC and see if they can suggest a local option that would work for you?

                Even if they were willing, Purina is only milling TC for part of the country--not the whole US. So even if Purina is distributing where they're milling (are they??) it would make it a regional product for Chewy. Do they have any other products that are limited by region? I don't think they do...

                  I wish they would carry Ultium
                  Ultium. I've requested it, and they added it to some list. Everything else I can order from.them - Beet Pulp, Alfalfa Hay and Cubes, Tribute Kalm N EZ, buckeye Grow N Win - but two of mine are on Ultium, and I really hate switching them. I'm sure my delivery guy does hate me, but it's so convenient.

                      Except for oats, it is pelleted. And as a consumer, who also worked in the feed industry for 15 years, it is not something I would buy and have shipped, especially if I could not see a manufacturing date on it.

                        I prefer Seminole because the feed is milled weekly and the truck runs weekly and no cattle feed is run down in Ocala
                        oh yeah for years I've cross examined the drivers who deliver Seminole here

                            I suspect Chewy offering horse feed/hay has something to do with Stateline acquiring the company and utilizing some of the same warehouses/resources for their equine sites and for Chewy. If I'm right about that, I don't think it's likely that Chewy will start adding horse feeds that SLT doesn't offer. And SLT has never offered a lot other than Standlee.

                              Petsmart owns Chewy. TabCom owns Stateline. Petsmart is privately owned. There's no relationship between Stateline and Chewy.

                                  Actually it has peas and a few other things that aren't pelleted.
                                  But! I learned the hardest way ever about buying feed in paper bags with no manufacturing dates on it...last year I lost 2 horses within 2 weeks of each other. I posted about this last year. I'd rather not discuss it any longer but search my posts about March/April last year. I posted the entire situation with full disclosure. Just please don't resurrect the thread if you can help it. I don't like reliving that nightmare.

                                    If anyone north of Virginia would start carrying Seminole that would be really A+.

                                    we can’t get anything good here in the northeast, it’s triple crown, poulin, blue seal, or purina. Bring on the good stuff!

                                      You did not post the entire situation with full disclosure. What were the results of the feed being tested? It would be highly unusual and unlikely for two horses to die from feed contamination of two different feeds by two different companies unless they are contaminated on the farm. Especially since one of the feeds you named is milled at a drug free mill. So what were the results?

                                        Sigh...I really don't want to go through this again. And inevitably take this discussion off topic. So if you want to discuss this, please PM me.
                                        In the end, after speaking to UC Davis (IIRC I spoke to several labs back then) testing the feed without tissue samples wouldn't have told us much since monensin was unlikely. And costly, which I couldn't do at the time. The testing could have gone into the thousands without tissue samples. I was told that feed could have hotspots, where a seemingly good bag of feed has a spot or several of a contaminate. The doctor I spoke with (I have his name written down in their files, but having just moved, they are still packed.) also said that without tissue samples it would be hard to prove to the feed companies lawyers that it was indeed one of the feeds. And the reason we didn't get tissue samples is that my vet wasn't prepared to do a necropsy and advised me to take the 2nd horse to OSU, who were closed since it was a Sunday and by the time they returned my call Monday morning, the window to do a necropsy to harvest her organ tissue was closed.
                                        So while it was said that it was most likely due to feed contamination, time and money prevented me from proving it to the extent that the feed companies would take responsibility for their deaths. I was told to keep the remainder of the feeds in case other cases similar began popping up, which I did.
                                        So I am not on a campaign to ruin either feed company as some might do even without any testing, I choose not to feed either. Or any feed that comes in a paper bag with no manufacturing data on it.
                                        So please cutter99, if you want to discuss this further or if anyone else does, I would really appreciate it if you would just let my horses rest in peace. But if you absolutely must talk about this and not calling Chewy to carry more horse feed, especially TCS for those of us who can't get it easily, then please pm me.
