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!

Jingles and prayers for Tamara in TN--3 yrs & happy update post 1103 pg 56

  • Tamara,

    I am so glad that your sister is moving in. Having her support when life goes on for everyone else, will help you so much, I am sure. I live in a house on my parents property, and times like today - sick with a stomach bug - make me wonder what on earth I would do without them.

    How old are your kids? Having them close to you helps, I know, but also don't forget to make sure that you have some YOU time as well. At first being alone with my thoughts was too painful, but now I relish it. It's still hard for me to sleep. I have an iPod touch, and I'm on it at some pretty odd hours of the night, reading or posting here.

    I love FB, but sometimes reading about peoples happy lives, is just too hard. There is a FB group that another COTHer told me about for young widows. I don't post often, but it helps interacting with people who really get it.

    Glad you got the casket shopping out of the way. We did that the day after my DH died, and I remember feeling so numb, and wondering how things that were going to be buried could be so expensive.

    Anyway, I don't mean to talk about myself - just wanted to tell you from someone who gets it, that I'm praying for you. Sadly, we are not the only young widows here on COTH.

    • Tamara,

      I am so deeply sorry. I read about this for the first time, tonight and with my heart in my throat, hurting, I can't begin to imagine your grief. Though, even in the midst of this senseless, tragic loss, your gifts are apparent: strength, wisdom, kindness and love. No wonder you have so much love around you now. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

        Tamara you and Calvin bring and brought forth the best in people.

        I am glad you are so enveloped by people who care deeply for you.

          • Deepest condolences to you and yours Tamara. This is so hard to digest but you seem to have a wonderful and strong family to help you through this rough time. Blessings to Calvin, a wonderful, wonderful family man.

            • My condolences to you and your family, Tamara. I am so sorry. You and the family will be in my prayers for some time to come.

              I was camping for a week, and just logged back on today. I was so saddened to read about this tragedy.

              • Tamara, you continue to be an inspiration to all of us with your strong sense of faith and love. You are in my thoughts often and I hope you know that you have many people, who have never met either you or Calvin, keeping you in their prayers daily. May you get through the coming days with help from the good Lord above.

                • Tamara,

                  I have never met you but I think of you every day and my heart breaks for you. I am amazed at the grace and courage you display through this tragedy. If everyone on this earth was like you, it would be a wonderful place. So glad your sister is moving in with you.

                  • Tamara,

                    Continued prayers going up for you for the peace that passes all understanding. You are an inspiration.

                        Shakespeare's Richard III? Tamara, you (and your family) are indeed a wonder and inspiration at this time. So much grief, and so much eloquence brought to and from it. We come here to send you condolences, but I, for one, feel I receive more from you than the other way around. Yes, celebrate Calvin's life, and the way it clearly and so honorably carries on through you, your daughters, your farm.... What blessings you bring to our so much disturbed and corrupted world!

                          He'd snigger and say "it's good for you"....

                          Of course, he fell asleep many nights right smack in the middle of me reading something to him...Hard on your pride to hear someone start snoring in the middle of a sonnet.

                                    • I came across this thread late last night and was just so shocked by this news. What a tragedy.

                                      I too have never met Tamara but always enjoyed her posts AND learned from them.

                                      My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family.
