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!

  • Jingles Dog Drank Antifreeze - He is Home!

    My stock dog drank antifreeze this morning. Prayers & jingles please!

    We had just fed the riding stock. Continued our normal routine & went on to the shop. He did his normal running around looking for mice. And for some reason he decided to drink antifreeze from the recycle barrel.

    Thank God I saw him, & rushed immediately to the cow vet. By the grace of God I drove up literally as the vet was pulling out. Another literal few seconds & I would have missed him-both seeing the dog drink & getting there before the vet had pulled out.

    Vet would not let me stay. He was inducing vomiting, & the rest will go from how much it appeared the dog injested.

    So now it is a horrible waiting period for me.

    In all my years I have never had anything like this happen. And as I am aging I am depending more & more upon the dog to make sure life in pastures goes safely.

    Jingles needed.

      Oh no, hope your dog didnt drink too much! Does your vet have 4MP? If not, diluted vodka CTI IV works well too.

      I really hope your vet gets working on yur dog ASAP. We have seen 5 cases this month and ,all of them survived. They get gastric lavages, diuresis, 4MP and are hospitalized for at least 2 days.

      Good thing you saw it happen though, hopefully the emesis will get rid of all the antifreeze and there will be little absorption!!! How much did he drink? I had a little pomeranian that took a lick of antifreeze tat was dropped in the snow. He was not treated (unfortunatley had stage 4 lymphoma as well), and believe it or not, had absoltuley no damage to his kidneys. However...it was just a very very small amount. He died 2 weeks later due to the lymphoma, not the antifreeze.

        Oh I hope you got there fast enough.
        My aunt/uncle/cousins' little dauschund drnk antifreeze years ago and survived as they got her to the vet in time.

        I've never had a dog or cat drink it. It is supposed to taste "sweet" and so if I spill any, I immediately put cat litter on it in in the garage as i don't want the squirrels and birds getting into it.
        It must taste Ok as the former secretary at the DA's office in north Georgia killed 2 men with it before one victim's family got suspicious.

        I hope your dog is OK.

            I am so sorry, I hope your dog makes it through, I hope he didn't drink too much.

            Antifreeze cases are NOT fun, we had some spill and our dog, both cats, and out skunk all got it! The vet could not treat the skunk(or even test him to see if he got it), so my mom and I (10 at the time) went to a store (after midnight) to get some alcohol so we could do what we can for our skunk. They would not sell it to us because it was after 12am. I started crying saying that stinky was going to die, and we couldn't save him, then the clerk changed the date on the computer and sold the alcohol! HA HA. All critters survived.

            I am sure your dog can pull through, you caught him early! I think that is where most people end up losing pets because they don't know until they see symptoms, then it's too late.

            My prayers are with you!

                      Jingling for your dog. My dog ingested DeCon rat poisoning last week and I caught her in the act, thus she only ate a small portion. She was a good 45 lbs and we induced vomiting with her. She is doing quite well and I am hoping your dog comes out as well as mine did.

                            Keep a bottle of Vitamin K on hand, per my vet when my father's bird dog ate a poisoned rat at a hunt.

                                  I still cannot get an answer out of the vet staff about how my dog is & their office closes in another 20 minutes.

                                  The rest of the day has gone nearly as wrong. When it comes time for, "This Is Your Life," I hope they flat out omit this day.

                                  And thank you everyone for all the prayers for the dog.
