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!

    I wish I could share Heart with you guys in person. To touch her soft hair, to hear her soft little nicker. To feel her warm breath upon my face as I tell her how strong she is. This is a little trooper.

    The vet was up again this morning. I think we need to medicate the vet, she is in shock. Our little ladies heart murmur has gone done to a grade 4 now that so much stress has been removed. She is not only resting comfortably, she is getting around well and tried to sneak out on me.

    A volunteer spent about half and hour grooming the little darling. She is sexy now. A real looker. She has on a little fly mask and honestly looks loved once more. We are on heavy doses of antibiotics and pain meds but thank heaven, the weather is turning cooler. The fly stuff from the vet is working a miracle and I dont think we could find another live maggot. I know they are good in an infection but these guys were in mass balls everywhere. Injuries or not, they had taken over. It was possibly the grosest thing I have ever done. Bird and I finally decided to just go for it and get our hands in there. OH YUK YUK YUK. We were so itchy. So was Heart.

    This little trooper is going to live to see a brighter day. God sent her here for a reason, she is not finished yet. Often, they come simply to teach me a lesson.

    You guys keep jingling for this little lady. Its working well.
    Our horses are not seen as the old and disabled they may have become, but rather as the mighty steeds they once believed themselves to be.

      Many, many more jingles for little Heart.

      And since we don't have any pics of her yet, we'll let Donkey from Shrek stand in for her right now.

            Saying prayers for the little donk! Thank goodness you found her! I am very certain you know...but go easy on that grain...as in almost none! What a wonderful person you are for helping her.

              I'm sure with her giant donkey ears, Heart can hear all the jingles and prayers coming her way.
              Go, little she-donk, go!!!

              Lori, I'm going to wait another week so that I have a whole mess of Legends/TC POPs to send at once. I'm up to 30 already, all neatly clipped and sitting in a pile waiting to do some good.

                  There's a special place in Heaven for folks like you! Heart was very fortunate to have found you. Or was she specifically sent your way for a reason?

                  Either way, our prayers go out for her and you.

                      The depths of depravity of people..I do not know what to say..I only hope those that left her will be found, charged and PUNISHED for this act of torture..for surely it was torture for the little donk to be abandoned on bad hooves, with a maggot infested leg in unfamiliar surroundings harrassed by dogs.

                      I am truly sorry for this little don-keh who had to suffer so before being found by you. I know Heart will be ok now that she has found you.

                      You are truly one of a kind, Lori and I swear I don't know how you do it day in and day out..your dedication and resolve to help are admirable.

                      Aloha sends Heart her love...say's soaked alfalfa cubes are some more good stuff! Give little donk a hug and I'll drop you a dribble by paypal for the donk.

                      It all comes back to you in the end, every little thing..don't you forget it!

                        Tommy and Blue are sending jingles from MI to little donk....and Tommy and Blue's momma is shedding tears and smiling through them as she thinks about little donk then and now...

                        You are an angel here on earth! Thank you.

                          Lori, I'm so glad to hear she is doing better.

                          Darn that I'm so far away, but if she pulls through and we can set up an 'underground railroad' for her I'd be thrilled to have the opportunity to give her a comfortable home for life here in Michigan.

                          I've become quite the donkey girl over the past couple of years ..very proud (and humble) to have been able to get many very lame, negelected donks back to soundness.

                          For some reason the local farriers don't seem to want anything to do with them, so I get a LOT of calls to see them, and I'm only too happy to do so.

                          They are so tough, but so loving given half a chance in life.

                          My darling husband can't work full time due to severe combat related PTSD, but he is able to ride to work with me a lot and as gained such a reputation for his kind, gentle manner and influence with all equids, but for some reason, especially donkeys, that he is now known around these parts as the 'donkey whisperer'

                                  Everyones little Heart is well tonight. She really belongs to you all cause I can feel your kindness and caring. Tears streaming down my face, I know I am not the only one who cares.

                                  She is talking to the little foundered pony outside her stall, she checked out the kitty and she politely told me to get her more hay mommy.

                                  She is far from out of the dark yet but we inch closer and closer to the light. This being only the second day of treatment, her improvement has been magnificent. If the cool weather holds out long enough for us to get some drying on that leg, we might be able to say, we made it.

                                  And Tiempo, I would be honored to have you adopt this little darling. The cooler season is so good for there foundered feeties. We can have coth stops along the way and all share in this little honey. She can stop for lunch all along the way.
