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!

                    My first dog ever was a golden/lab cross. My mom keeps talking about getting another "jessica." Let me know how I can contact you, and I will see what I can do. Charlie the Foxhound needs a friend. I am also in Virginia.


                    Edited because I saw your email addy in your profile and sent you a message.

                    Everyone, keep your fingers crossed that I can swing this! I we were just adopted by a (3rd)kitty so the house is getting a little full.

                      Hunter_Rider, I am in Canada and would happily take this little girl but it looks like she may have already found a loving home with Foxhound. I really wanted to say you have renewed my faith in humanity with your actions.

                        I still have to convince the Allmighty Mom, so if there is anyone else out there who can guarantee a home, go for it! I do hope I can convince her, though.

                          Good Luck Foxhound!! I hope your mom will let you get this pup!! It is so sad that some animals ever have to live their lives like this!

                          I hope she finds a good home!! I would love her, but I live in a dorm, so that would be a big no no!!

                            Hunter_Rider I have a house full right now (2 dogs, 2 rats, cat, ball python, 12 year old kid, hubby and 2 horses!) but I could take her for a few weeks while a home is arranged if it would help out. I just cannot offer her a permanent home although I wish I could! I will put the word out for you too!

                            I want to say GOD BLESS YOU for watching out for and taking care of this dog. She is truly lucky to have been found by you.

                              What a lucky doggie that you came along!!

                              We are currently mom & dad to a 7 yr. old husky mix resuce and a 6mon. old black lab mix who was being fostered by a friend (went all the way to Ohio to pick him up).

                              If you don't find anyone else who can definitely take her and she'll get along with the other 2 and our indoor/outdoor cat, I'll be in VA the middle of next month and will take her home with me.

                              We weren't planning on anymore doggies, but I won't (and I know mr. SBH won't) let this little girl go homeless.

                              Let me know if she's moving to LI!!

                                  Well I went to see the vet today they are doing surgery tomorrow at a whopping $572!!! Because she needs to have a heartworm test, ALL her shots and rabies etc etc etc.... OH and has to be spayed!!It was either pay for the surgery or Animal Control was going to euthanize her. So I have put some horsie items on ebay to raise funds!!! If anyone needs a Pair of 8 1/2 Arait Crowne black field boots, in a regular calf 18 1/2 inches in height- worn 5 times, please email me. I paid over $500 new 5 months ago, but can use my other pair of boots. Was not expecting this bill!! I have had people email me about her from this site , I need to email them back and figure out what home will be best for her. They basically are going to close her chest up - the knife tore 3/4 through her muscle and about 4 inches long. She was lucky it did not go in deeper. Thanks for all your help

                                      OMG that is so generous!! I am going through my tack room of new items I have not used and trying to sell them to raise the money!! I have saddle pads, Ariat field boots, New Arait Hexcel Pro boots still in the box. I just listed on ebay. That would be awesome, I just don't know how we would set it up. I nicknamed her "Kirby: because she was sitting on "Kirby Street" when I found her. Animal control came at 8 am and we tried to catch her and could not-they put a trap out and 4 hours later she was not in the trap, so they came and found her walking down the street and sat there for an hour, and she creeped up to them, after eating 8 hot dogs!She felt like they were good people. Well she let them rub her, but when they tried to put a leash on her she ran, so they got back into there truck and drove off, the puppy ran for 4 blocks behind the truck. So they stopped and lured her into a vacant housing project development that had a fenced yard, she ran in there and they shut the gate. Then they were able to catch her!! She is just as sweet as can be, but soooo scared she is going to be hurt again. I have 2 dogs, and I will bring her home Thursday, I am not sure how one of mune will react to a new addition- he may be too aggressive towards her. I have 2 Belgian Malinois, that are bred for police work, and they grew up together- I just do not know how he will be towards her and dont need another vet bill!! She needs to be kept on a leash for a while, I am afraid if she gets scared she may take off again, so for a farm setting it may not be a great idea untill she can trust people. I dont know, maybe we can set up a fund for "Kirby", let me know some suggestions. She is having surgery at Brentwood Veterinary Clinic in Chesapeake, VA. I had to prepay 1/2, but they let me post date a check for Sept. 13 for the other 1/2!! Thanks again for all the help!!

                                        Pretty simple ... did you set up a paypal account for your ebay transactions? If so, just post the account and people can send contributions naming Kirby in the "remarks" section.

                                        I just suggest paypal because a $5 contribution is so quick and easy ... by the time someone finds a check, envelope, and stamp, they'll have forgotten your address, you know?

                                        And shoot ... $5 is less than the price of lunch most places. I couldn't afford to take on a dog, but I can afford to eat oatmeal for lunch one day to help out yours.
