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!

  • Our rescue greyhound would start screaming in pain sometimes, usually when he got up from his doggy bed but could be random. Heart-breaking -- he'd be looking at us and screaming but we couldn't touch him w/o making it worse.

    He had a pinched nerve in the neck. Chiro helped, cortisone shot + chiro and he's been fine for 2+ years.

    Libby Engel did his chiro, I think she's out your way.

    Good luck!

    • Four big Doberman hugs headed your way from Iowa, EqT. I hope things continue to improve.


      • ((Hugs)) and jingles - I can only imagine how frustrating it must be to not know what's wrong with your pets!!!
        Hope all is soon revealed.

        • Still jingling for all 3 of you, EqT....


          • Everyone is resting quietly

            Started puppy on metro. Dosed up the big dog. I think the pain is under control now that the dose is high enough and has been consistent. Added sucralfate.

            Am going to catch some sleep before the next round. Thanks everyone!

            • Good so far .


              • My big girl sends best wishes to your big guy. (and the pup as well.)

                Take care of yourself & your back. I finally got over all my hurts from being bucked off in Feb - and then my microwave died over a week ago. Bought one yesterday but it's still sitting in the car while I wrestle with dragging it into the house - and the kitchen is upstairs...

                Taking it easy was what helped me get better (except I could still ride!)

                Hope this is all over with quickly!

                • Lots of jingles from me and all my dogs. I have had dealt with similar (only there was no blockage to explain it) Scandal, the pup, said it sucks greatly.


                  • More jingles!! Hope things continue to resolve for all of you.

                    • I think we are all feeling better

                      Will be posting on the menagerie board tho to figure out what to feed this puppy. Sigh.

                      • I'm also wishing all a full recovery.
                        Years ago, I noticed one of the dogs had a huge swelling in his neck and was drooling, I thought tooth but took him to the emergency vet in the middle of the night and he had a fork stuck in his throat, he must have swallowed it like a sword swallower but it took a few days off my life getting him taken care of.

                              • Still jingling for your pups. you have been on my mind since this thread started. I too, believe in the power of collective thought.


                                • More jingles your way!

                                  Your big dog sounds like my parents' dog (a boxer/dalmatian mix): she typically moves well but at times will do something, an extra exuberant leap, jumping down from a couch/bed, a bad step, SOMETHING, and cry out in pain. It's usually centered around her hip/lower back. Of course, her last episode was on Christmas Eve and by the time we could get the vet to see her, it had resolved with just a treatment of painkillers my mother had on hand. My parents and the vet have never gone into any in-depth diagnostics, but the thought is something like a pinched nerve that occasionally causes episodes of pain.

                                  Hoping you get some answers and relief soon!


                                  • Sending BIG Jingles and Positive Thoughts! I hope all situations are resolved in a short time.

                                    • It turns out the food my dogs eat (ate!) was recalled

                                      Tonight I made homemade dog food. Until I can meet with the vet, that is what they will be eating.

                                      Now... I know that Baxter ate the mouse toy on his own, but he is still not 100%. Neither is Noggin. But they are better

                                      So perhaps this will be an answer.

                                      • I heard about some bad dog food from/made in China (all regular American name brand stuff) several weeks or a month or so ago.

                                        I did note that what I feed wasn't on the list.

                                        Could well be that. I can't remember which ones or the dates they said to look for.


                                        • Bump--

                                          How are you and your dogs doing, EqT? Any good diagnosis on the big guy yet?

                                          Also would love to know which dogfood/s you're talking about (PM me if you prefer?). I'm feeding mine Orijens + homecooking now. Was sadly surprised to discover as a result of this thread that a supposedly high quality food I used a couple years ago (Natural Balance) was on the long list of foods contaminated in the melamine disaster of 2007-- and now on the samonella list, too. Clearly, selecting posh feeds from pet boutiques is not the answer
