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!

    If it's a dislocated or fractured hip or sacrum, there is hope but, it will likely take a lot of time on your sister's part and money.

    one of my TWH's fractured his sacrum in 2007. He re-fractured it and also dislocated a vertebra this past spring during a storm with hail the size of walnuts. My other horse would not stop running/spinning,mwhich got this horse doing the same. Had they stopped for five minutes I could have collared them and got,them in the barn.

    At any rate, if your sis feels the mare would be a good "lesson" horse and give happy horse memories to children 100# or less and for short rides in the round pen, there's a lot she can do to help the mare. Believe me, I've got an arsenal.

    After the X-Rays, for starters, do you have an expert equine body worker/chiropractor and hopefully acupuncturist in your area? Mine is a traditional vet who took the hollistic route.

    The other is a THERAPEUTIC farrier, not some person that is self-taught and only thinks they know everything. I can almost guarantee her hooves are not wearing in a normal manner because she can't walk normally due to that hip.

    My horse "rolls" onto the outsides of his hooves, much like a child that walks on the sides of its shoes. My horse has been in front shoes for awhile due to founder, thanks to IR (he's a train wreck. My therapeutic farrier recently customized a pair of Natural Balance Avanti steel shoes for his back hooves to stop him from rolling his hooves and hopefully to relieve some pressure off his hips/sacrum. So far the custom shaped shoes have been a magic bullet to help ease his discomfort. He immediately walked off in a lot more comfort..

    The chiro sees him every 2-4 weeks, depending how fast he puts himself out of place (since the episode in the spring, his sacrum can't stay put, so that's a bug worry). He is 24 and every day I see him with ears forward in the AM is a miracle.

    The frequent visits of the hollistic vet and a few visits thru the year by the traditional vet, help me to know if my horse is still enjoying life ---- or not ---. Horses are very stoic because they are a prey animal, so their DNA tells them to hide pain. The vets tell me if my horse is lying to me about how good he feels

    There are other things you sis can do, plus some oral meds that will help, depending what the X-rays or MRI's show. Here's hoping for the best possible outcome, just know that, to help the mare will involve a lot of labor, and some expense that will last for as long as the mare is alive -- someone has already tried to just turn her out to pasture and forget about her --- all'y'all see how that went --- that's why you rescued her

      This is Fantastic and heartening advice thank you! I will be copying and pasting this to her in an email in a few short minutes.

      I am really hoping there is light, she has a bit of a distaste for people but coming around now and so gentle. Seems a shame to end a life with so much vigor in there even with a hip issue.


      So odd though, when I test rode her for my sister, she didnt have any hip issues or lameness. Though, I wonder if it could have been an old injury and just playing around in the paddock has angered it... Not sure but here is hoping!


      again thank you for taking the time to type all that out, very encouraging! All good wishes for your babies as well!! Horses really DO take us for a journey dont they...

          Apologies for the long time to respond. I had a notice the coth site was hacked and stopped coming for a time .. made my work days very long!

          Just an update!
          Mare is still with my sister, yahoo! Vet could not quite tell if it was a break or a fracture from the ultrasound. So they gave 6-8 weeks rest and then try to get her mobile again and moving around atleast.

          SO FAR.... the hip which was very slanted to one side has begun to come back up. Mare still has a hitch in the walk but better. I have had my fingers crossed before this girl has the BEST brain and could be a good kid sitter in future.


          Ill keep updating as time goes on in case someone else has this issue. I have learned from many people, thank you to all who have messaged me, that this isnt a death sentence all the time. It is a process but the best ones are worth it...

              Thanks for the update

              As the owner if a horse with a fractured sacrum, that he re-injured, plus dislocated a vertebra this past spring, I can't say enough about the importance of a Ten-star chiropractor. I doubt my horse would be above ground were it not for my equine vet/chiro who is also a certified acupuncturist.

              He can't be ridden but he is enjoying quality of life

              If your sis can swing it, I highly recommend a red light therapy pad. Mine is from "According to Gospel" and is ~12 years old. I've got my money's worth using it on a couple of horses, dogs with hip issues, and myself when I had cellulitis in my leg

              A sidebar is to also be mindful of ulcers from long term stress, dealing with all that hip discomfort.
