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!

      Before our eyes we are seeing GOD's grace at work. That is empowering.

        Stand firm upon The Rock, dear Tamara,
        I have only just logged onto COTH to find this after a few days' absence, but I will third this.

        Tamara, count me in as one of the COTHers that is truly inspired by you and your relationship with Calvin. I am so glad to hear you have such support around you. You have no idea how many people you and Calvin have touched. My thoughts and prayers are with you.


        • I am deeply grieved to learn of your tragic loss. I am so very sorry. I am at an utter loss for words.
          Don't tell me about what you can't do. That's boring. Show me what you can do. - Mom


          • I wanted to add my condolences, Tamara you're such a wonderful & giving woman, I am so sorry this happened to your family.

            • My deepest sympathies on your tragic loss, Tamara. You are in the thoughts and prayers of many COTHers.

                May your memories give you comfort for the rest of your days.

                • Tamara, I have always read your posts with interest...sensing that you were a special sort...Now I know it to be true.

                  You have recolored my world when it was most needed.
                  God is with you my earthly companion...thank you.

                  Your posts have been nothing more than amazing to all of us....

                  My Love to you, and your children.

                  • I heard this poem as a memorial. My niece had recently lost her husband and this poem truly touched me. I hope it is appropriate:

                    Tis a Fearful Thing

                    It is a fearful thing
                    to love what death can touch.

                    A fearful thing
                    to love, hope, dream:

                    to be--

                    to be,
                    And! to lose.

                    A thing for fools, this,

                    a holy thing,

                    a holy thing
                    to love.

                    For your life has lived in me,
                    your laugh once lifted me,
                    your word was gift to me.

                    To remember this brings painful joy.

                    'Tis a human thing, love,
                    a holy thing,
                    to love
                    what death has touched.

                      this is an amazing and touching post. tamara recolored your world, there is no greater gift than the ability to help when in need. tamara and her family have lost and gained in a way we cannot completely grasp, what we do know is she has exemplified what lies in all of us and should come forth more often and be seen. there is an angel in our midst God saw fit to show us...may we all demonstrate her courage and strength in the days ahead when she will need us more than now.

                        hello all


                        it appears these memorial fund/scholarships are fiddly things and must be done a certain specific way.Of course, as if it were easy, my lawyers would starve to death ;>

                        in any event please watch for the news in the future of it. People have asked if it is for my children in specific,that answer is no.

                        My hope is that childen who want to farm the way he did, can learn how the proper way the first time around and shed the "Daddy done it that'a way" nonsense that has killed so many aspirations of so many kids.

                        I read this every morning and then I go about my day.
                        Thank you all

                        • tamara

                          you know my feelings already, just like to add
                          inspiration comes from those that are strongest in mind and body

                          and little things seem so trival how life can change in an instance

                          and how we all percieve it as such when it does, we and i know this as fact now looking at what we have already and more in depth becuase of whats happened to yourself

                          life has a funny way of egaging the most from it, and encouraging those left to learn by what it has to offer

                          funny how i have looked at myself more so than i ever did before

                          inspiration is strenght that one posescess and is given to another

                          I thank calvin and yourself for that extra gift



                          • Tamara - Been away for awhile. So sorry to read of your loss.

                            Just returned to riding/owning this past year. And in April moved my horse to a new barn, a little bit farther away. Although I live in the country, and own a bit of acreage, the drive every day to the barn fills me with joy, as I've found a new part of our area full of beautifully tended hay and corn. And greatly appreciate every day what it takes to create it, and what it means to others.

                            Will be keeping you and your family in my thoughts this week, and for some time to come, as I drive by, and ride through the hay fields near home.

                              • Tamara;

                                This is MrOnthebit. Please know that Onthebit and I are thinking and praying for all of you each night and each day of this nightmare. I am deeply, profoundly sorry that an event like this had to happen at all, and I am even sorrier that it had to happen to you.




                                • God bless you and keep you and your children.

                                  I will be holding you all up in prayer tomorrow throughout Calvin's service, continually. And as often as God brings you to mind in the days to come.

                                  I am so very sorry.
