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!

All proceeds go to providing Vetrinary services, feed and hay, proper routine foot and mouth care and ALOT of gentle and loving handeling.We accept all horses from foals to gereatric horses."

                well, my horses get HOOF care, done by a farrier, and see a veterinarian. SMH, didn't realize I've been doing it wrong all along!

                • It also seems that they are still not responding to requests for that elusive 501c number that possible donors have been asking for since Sept 27th.

                  • Also, from doing a bit of digging (don't ask how, not telling), their adoption fees seems to have been in the $700-ish range in the past. Well, above what CCH quoted me quite a long time ago that what she would sell some of the colts for. That may change now, due to the economy, IDK.

                    I'm still wondering where all the adopters were when CCH wanted to sell, but, are now lining up to adopt at a possible higher price. ???

                    Yeah, I'd like to know the 501c thingy, too.

                      As others have noted, there is something about the notoriety of a seizure that attracts potential adopters when those same people would never have even considered purchasing from the owner prior to the seizure.

                      It happens all the time and is par for the course with these situations. Unfortunately.

                        • Someone on another forum quoted the trailer post:

                          "Call me please contract says I must give the trailer back at ANY time if asked. U have had the trailer over 2 months for the sole purpose of selling it to no avail .... please bring it back"

                          I'll bet there is a good story behind that.

                                Yeah, why DOES your crazy brother have a say in all this?? Don't get in the car with him again. Take your own transportation from now on. Seriously.
                                Yes, that's the one. I have taken pictures. There on my Facebook page. I don't know how to post the link.

                                Batshit crazy brother lives with my dad who live 3/4 miles from me. Brother is currently in the manic mode in his bi-polar cycle so has all sorts of grandiose ideas about running some calves on the place, etc. He is now my dad's new best friend, takes him off on the weekends to watch football at his son's house or go fishing with his daughter and her husband (in the boat they got my dad to buy) etc. I'm hoping that he'll get back in the depressive mode soon so all he'll do is come home from work, go to his room and not talk to anyone. Like I said, there's a lot of family drama. I wish I was in a position to just leave and let them have it.

                                    Adding to that, (for an example) when I go to sell the pony, the idea in everybody's head is that I am in control of him, he's mine, I'm feeding him, caring for him - he has a home.
                                    Even if I'm trying to fire sale him for a dollar.

                                    But once the authorities get involved everything changes - he needs to be rescued, he has no home, he's on the freakin' 10 o'clock news looking pathetic.

                                    Seems to be a human trait that we don't act until we react, cause it's a heck of a waste of AC time and money to have to deal with these animals after the fact. I sort of wish that AC had a fund to help owners pull themselves up by the bootstraps - but I understand that some owners are in denial and the best course of action is to cut them out of the picture ASAP.

                                      A 990 is a nonprofits financial statement to the IRS - showing what came in and from where (in general terms, it doesn't list all donors) and where money went.

                                      They're posted to Guidestar normally when filed. However if she only filed for her 501c3 this year, she wouldn't have filed a 990. (I don't know when she's claiming to have filed for the 501c3).

                                      A lot of organizations, ours includes, posts the 990s to their websites. It allows donors to have some idea where money comes from and goes to - and gives them a little more confidence in supporting a nonprofit.

                                      On a side note - if anyone ever considers giving a significant donation to a nonprofit, you can also ask for a profit & loss statement or more in-depth financial statement since the 990 is somewhat general. We post our P&Ls on our website, too. It is just good practice.

                                        On the 80 tons of hay deal, help me here, please. That is 160,000 pounds of hay. There are 34 horses. Some large, some small, lets assume average weight of 900 # each. That is 30600 pounds of horses x2% of bodyweight per day per horse of forage= 612 pounds of hay daily required. That means that assuming my figures are right, that 80 tons of hay will last 261 days. That is a little over 8 months. Surely that is enought to get thru the winter. Even if you feed 2x that, it is still 4 months feed.

                                        Where are they getting that it is not enough to get thru? Apparently I missed something somewhere.
