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!

  • Didn't the rescue pick the horses up??

    Sorry, my ADHD kicked in and all the posts are a little of info-overload.

    Something I did see while trying to skim and understand, if the rescues are full, where did THIS rescue come from they could take 30+ horses??

She admitted that she had one old horse that needed to be put down, a couple that were thin due to illness and one yearling whose feet were bad. The rest of the horses in the video looked fine. Not roly poly fat maybe but in decent weight with shiny coats.

          Through no fault of my own, I am responsible for about 22 horses. It's a long story but I finally managed to get all the colts gelded except 2 and they will be done next spring. I am working on getting everything halter broke, handled and starting those old enough under saddle. I could just load the whole bunch up and haul them to the kill sale but that's a last resort. I have finally got the facilities where I will be able to work with these horses, but that's another story. I have little help and support but I'm doing the best I can with what I've got.

          Now, all of them are in decent weight, most are fat to obese on grass alone. But, one, my old guy, pushing 30, looks rough, really rough. His teeth aren't good and he doesn't do well once the grass gets dry and tough. I haven't been able this summer to keep him separate from the others and feed him. I also haven't been able to check him every day. So I have to say that I'm rather embarrassed at the way he is looking. Things have changed so now he is getting his senior feed, beet pulp and alfalfa 2x per day. My point is should law enforcement be able to come out and take ALL my horses because one looks bad?

          Also, all you folks that say you want to help someone before the situation gets dire, I have some nice, young haflinger x quarter horse ponies that I'd love to find a nice home for. PM me. I have 3 donkeys too.
          Wirewieners, have you tried the giveaway board? I don't think ponies or donks are hard to re-home if they're sound.

          And one old, thin horse is understandable. Old horse that is suffering + elf feet + an unreasonably skinny horse + admission that there isn't enough money to euth the one that needs it + and only 2 days supply of hay......not understandable at all.

I said no, not what I'm looking. Then the old ladies showed up on CL for a few days or a week, then, poof...gone. They weren't at the livestock sale. The KB said he wouldn't take them when I mentioned the old ones to him. They aren't out in the pastures either. I don't think the geezerettes are up in the fancy barn either, that's for the show horses.

              So....when no one is looking...possibly 'Blam'. I'm not going to ask. A better end than turning them loose like my Sam to fend for themselves and possibly turn into coyote or cougar bait.

              I was perhaps too brief,good farmers who care about their
              mares have cared for them for years and continue at their times' end to care for them.

              They DO NOT dump them on some starry eyed dillweed dreamer for $10 on CL or anywhere else.They keep their dignity and die on their homes unafraid and in most cases not even worried.

              It is far harder on the farmers than the animals.But they know that this mare who has three or four generations of offspring even on that same farm deserved the same end as she had life given to her.

                  When there were horses in need in California et al, someone from New Jersey would make the same "distance" claim

                  So I would contact them about horses in their area..WOW...what an eye opener..I was told to back off..how dare I...not THEIR problem as they didn't breed, hoard or any other excuse...however many still post and gosh are they judgemental and critical

                  I expect some of those individuals will immediate start to circle the wagons and attack me again...that should be fun as they will out themselves.

                  Maybe the forum members weren't actually insincere, maybe its you and your personality and they just didn't want anything to do with you. I'd probably get a restraining order on you if you ever tried to contact me.

                      The rescue is in Wells, NV, about 5 hours and 300 miles away. In Nevada, that is local. The brand inspector made the determination, apparently, that the confiscation was appropriate, and the animals are at the local auction yard in Fallon.

                            No. It's funny because in PA traveling an hour to get anywhere is par for the course. I don't even think about it until I get some non PA person in my car and that person is appalled Same thing here I guess, but I'm the guest.

                                So how long does it take for a young horse's feet to get THAT long? I've seen adult horses that don't get that bad after 6-8 months; do the younger horses grow out much faster (less body weight, etc?)?

                                  1) We need a national registry of horses, so we know who's got what, where, and how many.

                                  2) COTH could possibly be a better place if people posted under their real names. There is both a lot of abusive behavior and a lot of wasted energy that is encouraged because people participate with absolutely no risk to themselves, whilst they harm others...

                                  We could do more to help each other, and the horses, if people would own their opinions and behavior.

                                    Not withstanding the whole of this posting, that's pretty funny. "Over there" from where I live in southern OR is Salt Lake City or Portland or Sacramento. A Sunday drive is Bend or Eugene and probably back. It's about 45 minutes for me to get to the nearest big city, piece of cake.

Also, it's been a bit since I watched the video of the lady, but there are THREE farriers in Wells?? Three?? Wells isn't that big a 'town'. They must be part-time then, however, with this herd coming in, they will get to be busy at least for a while.

                                        I don't think we have "the rest of the story" yet, so can't do any other than guess and, well, we know what that is worth.

                                        It is bad if neglect really was happening.
                                        It is bad if animal control/the sheriff were not acting honestly, if there was other going on or they didn't go by the book, or even may be breaking laws if they happen not to really have a case.

                                        Will have to wait to hear more to know more.

                                          Wells itself isn't very big, but the surrounding ranches probably have a lot of horses, and these individuals may drive a long way in the course of their work. They may indeed be part-timers as well, as mining is doing pretty well at the moment, and may pay better, with less wear and tear on the body.

                                          It's got to be tough for the rescue there to rehome horses, with a relatively small population.
