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!

          Well, I guess that means you could collect him or maybe wash him for breeding or clean his sheath....better than those that try to take your head off I guess.

              This thread has me just cracking up over here. I am on craigslist often and while I started out laughing my fool head off at some of the ads, now I find that I am starting to wonder just what the hell. I mean, do people really talk like that or is it only the written word that confuses them. I just don't get it.

              However, very funny.

                  The "trailer" - holy crap I didn't even know what to think when I saw the picture. I seriously hope it has never actually been used as a horse trailer. The other ads are just WOW as well.

                      Re the trailer in Wenatchee - for those of you that have been around the track a few times, trailers like these were the only way to haul your horse for years. I've always thought it would be super cool to have a vintage truck with vintage trailer, something like the "Cowpokes" trailer, to take to car shows. I could put a stuffed horse in the trailer. When I have these thoughts, I eat chocolate until they go away.

                      This trailer probably needs a floor, wiring, paint, and tires, and it could be made serviceable. Only a small horse could be accommodated, and if you were going to actually use it, adding a little more height to the front half would be good. I think I'd use a different approach than the canopy. The price is ridiculous, though - I'm sure you could buy something similar for $200 or less, and much of the time, you could probably even get it free, just for getting it off the property!

                      Open trailers like these have advantages - you can winch in bad loaders with a tractor really easy. Not to say that's the best solution, but it was a common one in past years. They also haul livestock well, so long as said livestock doesn't leap out. It's likely destined to become a garbage hauler, and it will be ideal for that as well.

                      As for schoolbus jack, if you look carefully, Jack is getting ready to perform for an audience. There are several people standing inside waiting for the triple X action.

                      And his sire being 17 hands? That's probably measured with the special measuring device in which every animal for sale (at least in Craigslist) is 16 hands or above, yet stands a princely 14.1 when met in person.

                      Mini stud who is oh-so-touchable is wearing a sale sticker on his touchable bod. Guess he isn't going to stay in his new home long enough to have it taken off. Or this guy puts stickers on all of his horses (Creampuff! Low Mileage! Whitewall hooves!).

                            That's hysterical. I sent the link to DH and told him I found a horse trailer that has plenty of head room for Tommy...since they're keeping the truck cap! ha ha ha

                              Yep, trailers like that were common in the 50's and 60's. I think I have a picture of one in the background of a show picture taken of my mother in the late 50's.

                                Shoot...back in the old days my dad used to load ranch horses in the back of the pick up. Seriously. He had gates on the sides of the truck so they wouldn't fall off.

                                He never hauled them down the road that way, but to get them from place to place on the ranch, yes. One gelding didn't even need a ramp. He'd just jump in the back of the truck.

                                  I saw a trailer quite similar to that one, in Waikiki. The horses had fly masks on, and looked quite debonair in their convertible. No, it wasn't 1955, LOL, it was 2002
