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!

  • She's Here, she's here!!!! (Update on 2 y.o. Buckskin Appy) *PICS added*

    And I am in LOOOVE!! I just got back from getting her settled, and I think she is AWESOME!! She stepped off the trailer, and my 9 year old and I led her to her new pasture, and showed her her water. She never ran, never snorted....heck, she never even let out so much as a whinny!! She just started grazing like she's lived here all her life - what a mellow girl! She even dropped her head down for my son to pet on her. She didn't even care that she was by herself! (Simba comes on Monday) I can't wait to see her in the light - I am just smitten with her already!!!

    I am such a lucky girl!! Not only am I blessed with a super cool little filly, but in the process I have gotten to know three amazing COTHers!!!

    I took my camera, but it was dark, so pictures will have to come tomorrow - besides, Miss Thang needs a bath, lol. (And no, I still haven't decided on a name, so for now it's still Kimber.)

                        I was kinda thinking on having her show name being "My Sweet One" - it's a Phish song, but that still leaves her barn name undecided. At some point I would like to try and get her registered somewhere, but not sure where?

                              What a happy story! I like Kimber and Starbuck. Would love to see a picture.

                                Chocomare is coming this afternoon to trim her feet, and I am hoping to give her a bath. Hopefully I will have plenty of good pictures to post tonight. I still haven't seen her in the daylight yet! I am hoping that when I do, a name will come to me then. I kind of like the name "Jolie" (French for pretty) but I think that's a pretty common name now?

                                As a side note, her owner named her dam "Champagne Supernova. She rescued her from a pretty bad situation, and came to find out that not only was she pregnant, but that she was a gem of a pony. She ended up dying when Kimber was just 7 months old. When you look up the word Supernova, it says " A rare celestial phenomenon involving the explosion of most of the material in a star, resulting in an extremely bright, short-lived object that emits vast amounts of energy" Pretty good name, huh?

                                  Congrats!! It's great to hear how everything came together for you. And personally, I kinda like the name of Miss Thang!!!

                                    So, I am pretty much blown away at the wonderful little POA Buckskin I now own. You kmow, when I started to "sort of" look around for a buddy for my Mini, I would have taken anything - mule, mini, goat...whatever. While I found a few others that were needing homes, none really felt right. In the back of my mind, I had this perfect horse standard that I compared everything to. Know what that was?.....

                                    My favorite color - Chestnut with blond mane, or...yup, a Buckskin..

                                    Favorite breed - Appaloosas and TB's

                                    Gender - I love mares

                                    Temperament - a love bug

                                    Upkeep - I really needed something low maintenance with good feet

                                    age - I wanted a youngster that I could break myself

                                    Height - large pony/small horse that I could ride, as well as my kids, one day.

                                    SO, you can imagine how freaked out I was when I just happened to get on COTH, and just happened to glance at the Giveaway Forum and saw an ad for ALL of the above, and IN MY OWN STATE. Yeah, kinda freaky. So, while I had told my husband that I could always get an investment horse to resell one day, guess what?.....this filly isn't for sale. Ever.

                                    Today, she got her feet trimmed by Chocomare - who did a great job! - and then got a good bath and fly sprayed. She was SO good, and really acts liek she's 10, instead of only 2. Her owner has done a GREAT job with her!

                                    Getting her feet done by Chocomare:

                                    She is SOOO sweet!

                                    time for the backfeet:

                                    Now it's Bath time:

                                    Getting rinsed off:

                                    Pretty feet!!!

                                    See ya tomorrow:
