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!

      • hello all

        well I wanted to first thank you all for the love and kindness you have sent to me,I do not think I deserved it, but you gave none the less in excess.

        thank you to those whose names appear on the donor lists that the foundation sends to me each month

        we continue to farm " to every thing there is a season"
        right now it's the keep the stock fat and prep machinery for it's winter sleep and soil test and order seed and fertilizer

        the ewe herd increased by 27 new lambs in about 10 days time and they are a joy to us....the horses just wait for spring like the rest of us

        the holidays were sad in streaks but overall not bad,the children came and all were gathered...I went to no ones house or cooked a grand meal as the effort would have been too much...it remains my favorite holiday so I thank god that man did not ruin that for me as well

        and on the subject of him,he was arraigned in mid nov....which for non legal types means that he had to convince Hiz Honor he should NOT go the the grand jury on the third monday in Jan....

        He failed.

        I went to the DR today for the regular old boring checkup and most of the weight I had lost in those first awful two weeks has returned...

        two songs caused me to burst into tears driving on the way home and then it passed,like dark clouds

        so I hope you all have a good new year upcoming....

            I just felt a weight lift a bit, reading your message. I promise my name will make it onto one of those lists, as soon as I have a month where I'm not buying a load of hay; I should have my stock for the rest of the winter now. Hoping for some good snow soon ...

            • Good to hear things are going ok-ish; we got some wonky hay at the barn last week and I found myself tsk-ing and wondering, "what would Tamara say to this?"

                  • Tamara, I'm looking at the East Tennessee Foundation where I thought the Calvin Howard Agricultural Scholarship Fund was being managed, but am not following how to donate. Can you provide the link and/or directions? I would really appreciate that.

                    • Figured I'd share publicly because I'm feeling ornery (don't ask). So,, wanted to say T keep the snow. I selfishly want the warm-up (weather). The red head will be showing first level this weekend. Have someone coming from NC to look at her the end of the month. They're visiting family and thought they'd take a gander. Lauren is back home and riding the red head. The two look great together. Will send pics if I can get them from the show. Will be having daughter dearest ride in the upcoming recognized show given my current state of affairs. Just wanted to let you know (and Himself) that The Dude really wowed our clinician today. She said and was actually gasping for breath that he's going to have "Awesome Half Passes". Menai Dambuster is the most under rated stud there is. You deserve several pats on the back (as does Himself for driving there and back) for picking him out to take the place of the one before who was so dear. Hell I'm truly an amateur who works 50 hours a week and comes home sometimes too tired to ride; but what riding I can do is capable only because of the wonderful pairing you've made (and perhaps another like breeder or two). Himself may have made "a comment or two" about the whole welsh cob ordeal but, he knew his stock and so did you.......the evidence is so damn hard to miss that's it's drawn so much attention, hee, hee, hee, hee, hee, hee......... I'm so damn lucky and I know it, Thank YOU, Thank YOU, Thank YOU.

                      Just spent 6 hours on the highyway behind a traffic accident and the most awesome son of the most awesome stallion and his barn mate were golden.............(yes I'm tailgate drinkin', wish you were here, well maybe not but you know what I mean)

                          I wish I was there as well.... when it snows hard...then I get to have dinner in NC with monstrpony while/after the children are on the slopes....it's a tradition that goes back years...so should have said "snow HERE"

                          yours is a grand boy and he made us both very proud with every photo and vid you sent....I remember He said once "well he (Rez) turned into something didn't he?" I'm going out to see Dambuster right now to graze him awhile in some of the last remaining dark green grass....I'll pat him and giselle for you while I'm down there. love you.

                            hello...he will have his own hotlink "sometime after the new year" is what they have told me....since this will be a decades long thing,I guess they were not in a hurry about it. MP has provided the way for now,hopefully soon it will be much easier for those looking.

                                • I wasn't sure whether to make it as a tribute, but I did type in the scholarship name for Calvin.

                                  Tamara, I think this is such a special thing that you've chosen to set up.
