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 saw on the FLF facebook page that she is being taken in by FLTAP. So she's got a little reprieve, hopefully she can find someone just perfect.

    But another sweet mare who needs to be gone is my girl, Desert Doctor, doesn't anyone like her but me?

      "Horns" is a real thing horses can get. There is some fancy name for it but it's not coming to me at the moment. I knew of a thoroughbred mare who had them, mind you she was a terrible weaver, and the vets always said that the bony protuberances can be caused when the skull is forming or by the horse repeatedly wacking its head in the same place, eventually resulting in calcification of the repeatedly injured tissue. I'm sure yours is just how the skull formed though

        I wonder - how/why he has them. They are small but obvious enough to see if you're looking for them and definitely easy to feel. But they're very evenly situated, one on either side of his forehead, a bit closer to the ears than the eyes - as if he began to form horns at birth then realized "wait a minute - I'm a horse!?!"...

          Lexie,
          Congratulations on your new stunning handsome hunk of horse! When you finally get to see New York New York in person you are going to be soooo impressed! Best wishes for safe travels, and we hope he turns out to be everything you have been dreaming of.

          And count me with Heliodoro in the Desert Doctor fan club --she is a very nice looking mare, and is going to make a much better sport horse than racehorse. Jingling for someone to step up for her!

          • ok, my jingles now go to Desert Doctor. It seems to work...

            Comment


            • I LOVE Desert Doctor. She and AP Light, who I bought back in July, would make a lovely pair of dark bay beauties. Alas, I can't afford to buy and ship her. If anyone needs enabling, AP Light has turned into a total puppy dog who lives to be loved on and worked with. She's fast becoming one of my all time favorites.

              • Aww shucks

                Thanks Lexie and Maunder! It is entirely my pleasure to help where and when I can. I give full credit to my fellow volunteers who have been amazingly productive this year, taking the website to a new level of awesome!

                Yes, Dance Cocoa Dance is in a safe place. Phew.

                I'm closing in on geezerhood and not much of a social networker, but I have to admit that Facebook and such has made a HUGE difference in our visibility.

                Jingling now for Desert Doctor and Round Not Sleek!

We just heard about one more: thanks to our frantic networking and the huge FB network of one of our new volunteers, Led Advantage found a home this afternoon! This mare has been one of my personal faves ever since I first listed her last summer and the pleas from the assistant trainer that she was running out of time were tearing my heart out.
                  Thanks, great COTH networkers and enablers!
                  I went to check out the website this morning, and Led Advantage is still listed. If her connection fell through, I am EXTREMELY interested in her. I love,love,love the Copelan bloodline. If something falls through and she needs a home, I'll take her on the first van south I can find. Thanks!

                  Comment


                  • Realrush - We received confirmation that Led Advantage did find a home and has settled in. I have moved her over to placed and hope you find someone else to put on a van heading south. Thanks so much!

                      • I just wanted to update everyone on Bella or Genuine Offer. She is now being boarded at my trainer's farm in Linwood, NY (south of Rochester), she is still for sale!

                        I saw her under saddle yesterday and she's a pretty fancy little mare, a little up since she raced last week and hasn't done much in the interim. She popped over a few small fences very nicely. After the ride, we let her loose without tack in the indoor and she just cantered round and round! Bella even decided to jump by herself twice showing lovely form and a nice balanced canter. She's got a nice stall and some turnout to relax in for now.

                        Still jingling for little Desert Doctor! 6 months from now I might be able to take her in at our new place, a little incentive to get that fencing up ASAP...

                        • First Crack arrived home her in MD today . The shipper said she was perfect and she unloaded and went into the barn and started searching for some grain.... She has n't had turnout for over 18 months , so she'll get to go in the round pen tomorrow!

                              Congratulations Elizabeth. Her owner, Nancy, loved your mare and wants nothing more than a wonderful new home for her. Please do keep us updated on her progress on the other FLF thread.

                                  Two items of new home good news today! Great Privilege has found a nice home, where he has a lovely family to dote on him and he gets to hang out with their two paint horses.
                                  And Cool Mountain shipped today to Akindale TB Rescue, where his breeder, Pin Oak Stud, has agreed to sponsor him in their retraining and adoption program. The loyalty and caring for the horses they breed is wonderful and heartwarming-- we wish all TB breeders were this conscientious.

                                      • Although the track is closed horses are still available. Ostin's Miracle is now on a farm just a few minutes from the track and his price has been reduced to $2000. His owners are motivated to sell him so give Dorothy a call if he interests you. At this farm you may hop on him and take a little ride!
