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!

    • I've burned up about 4 gallons of gas with the generator today so am getting off and going to bed.....sunset to sunrise is sleep time around here. Got my woodstove today so have to get it set up tomorrow and then have a bunch of phone calls to make so need to charge up the phone in the truck. So much to do, so little time. Rehabbing a place that has been vacant and vandalized is a challenge!! But loving the geese/ducks on the pond and the coyotes...only 2 miles to town so lots of "town" regs (like not shooting and burying animals) but kind of wild at the same time.

      • CCH, I'm glad you posted all this, maybe more than you wanted but some people are not going to ever be satisfied no matter how you much you explain. Like the one lady who just would not quit slamming you, even though you responded with an answer. I had the impression that had she been in front of you, she would have taken a swing at you!! Since I'm pretty well country, like you, I know how things work out in the remote parts. Sometimes after you post as much as you can, you just have to let people assume this or that. After all, some people will always have their act together, all the time and never anything will befall them. Good luck to them.

        It's probably a good thing you got this all out in the open. Sunshine cleans all. For one, I still have my suspicions about this *ahem* rescue, especially now that you've posted the last part of the your posts.

        But, I posted a while back about the blood of your horses. I couldn't remember all you had told me but I got the basics out there anyway.

        ....and, I am wondering about the horse's redemption in a year's time. Keep all pertinent info close at hand, hide it if you have to, some place safe. Make copies and hide those.

        Wow, just wow.

          • However, CCH, it sounds to me from the tone of your notes (which are basically repeating what you've already written), that you are not really that upset about losing the horses. Are you trying to get some of them back?

            Maybe this is a good time to just do without horses for a while and try to get back on your feet, and then start again on a small scale once you have some money saved up.

            If you are under 66, you aren't getting any more than $2000 a month in Social Security (and probably less). That's not much to live on. A job would help, but, again, if you are under 66, you can only earn $14K a year before they start reducing your SS.

            My 92 year old mother lives on it, but pays less than $400 a month for senior subsidized housing in a small apartment, has no animals, and has children who are there to help her financially if she needs anything.

            Have you thought about some professional counseling?

                Okay, I'm not sticking up for CCH here, she's able to do that for herself, but, that said, my first thought when reading your post (it could have been about anyone on this site), what business it is of yours what she has coming in and what she does with it?? Whether she wants her horses back or not?? If you truly wanted to know, why didn't you ask in a pm?

                Unless, you have an ulterior motive for doing so, to try to embarrass her, which I don't think you can do, she seemed a pretty tough woman when I met her. But still, whatever she has coming in, seems like she'd know the rules about what she can do or not.

                She put everything out there (way more than I thought was reasonable) and answered some of your questions beforehand, but, looks like you didn't read her posts, just started typing.

                • 26 pages and it's my comment that embarrasses her? I still don't know what she wants out of all this fuss. If nothing, maybe the thread ought to close. Personally, I think she's a brick shy.

                  Comment


                  • Whether she's a brick shy or not, I've not a clue, but if you HAD read her posts, you'd find your answers pretty much. That's why I wrote maybe you were trying to embarrass her more by bringing all of it up again in such a brash way.

                    The only reason I'm interested in seeing this thread go on is my interest in the *ahem* rescue, of which I have many doubts after reading about them, especially now that they've closed the group once some sticky questions started showing up.

                    • Some one was asking about the paint horses and it was stated they did not have any from this seizure but had one already.
                      It sounded like CCH's horses were not gelded as the vet was already scheduled.
                      Is this not different from what they said before?? I thought it was stated the horses were already gelded and awarded by the court.
                      I guess I'm still in - I'm just reading things - not posting on that wall. I guess that makes me a spy.

                        CCH's horses have NOT been gelded.

                        I might also mention that it took 4 weeks for the rescue to trim hooves on the horses. As evidenced by their "gelding/hoof trimming" bbq here recently.

                        There was proof posted that the rescue has 80+ horses by a screenshot of the rescue explaining how many horses they took in, but I would have to go find it again.

                        • The rescue in Northern Nevada has posted on facebook that they are using the non-profit status of another rescue in Las Vegas (Adopt a Rescue Pet) and claims that allows them to be tax deductible. That rescue, by the way, is for dogs.

                          They can't do that, can they?

                            I don't have a clue, but, as we all know, horses are livestock and not pets under the law, unless THAT has changed and I'm not aware of it. However, it doesn't seem much holds them back anyway.

                            Sitting back and watching this unfold, a fly on the wall.

                              • I would surely feel better about this if the horses were at least being kept at a legitimate rescue as this unfolds.

                                It seems like these horses are having major phosensitivity issues, and I know alfalfa can cause photosensitivity - as can other things.
                                http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/ar.../t-223415.html

                                In looking at the pictures of the rescue, it did not seem like they had a lot of "shelter" given the number of horses? Am I wrong on that? If the horses are having issues w/ photosensitivity and sand colic; then, it seems like they need some labor intensive care and management -- probably more than CCH could handle given the circumstances, but I am not at all convinced that this rescue is equipped w/ the right staff and facilities either.

                                This is just unfortunate all the way around. CCH had a string of unfortunate -- well awful -- things happen one after the other; and I hope none of the rest of us ever have to prove that we'd deal with a string of similar events in a superior way. I surely hope that CCH can enjoy her new job, take a deep breath, and figure out the best thing to do for her and for the horses.

                                I hope the people that were so concerned about the horses will keep an eye on that rescue and the horses in their care. As somebody pointed out, horses are legally considered livestock in most - if not all states; and the handling of this definitely leaves me w/ a bad feeling. And, I say that as a person who thinks there are way too many horses and that very few people have any business breeding horses (or dogs or cats); and I have zero tolerance for elf hooves or suffering animals -- and even less tolerance for vets who won't end an animals suffering w/o advance payment.

                                I just would feel a lot better if there had been an effort by the concerned authorities to assess and help initially, or if CCH had voluntarily relinquished the horses, and the horses were sent to a legitimate rescue w/ verified resources / facilities to care for the horses. In my very limited experience, the best rescues do everything possible to educate and assist people to prevent animal suffering; and the righteous condemnation is reserved FOR the evil people who are very deliberately abusing horses and those who refuse to take action / accept help in neglect situations. As has been made clear here by people w/ rescue experience; rescues have limited resources and the good rescues manage them very carefully. They do not go out looking for seizures -- much less buy seized horses in bulk from the local authorities. Very, very weird this is.

                                    Perhaps you missed the part where I mentioned an oil company royalty check every month as well? And I have several other sources of income that I'm not at all sure I have to divulge to you or to anyone. And a job. There was plenty of money for hay/grain/meds for the older horse but the reserves had been taken up with moving, with getting the well on the property operating, with visits to my dying sister to say goodbye, to her funeral and to help clean up/clear her home afterwards. There was in fact, a check coming only 6 days after the horses were seized that would have paid for the old horse to be put down. Instead he was held for 5 days after being taken by the sheriffs dept so he could be put down on the one day of the week the sales yard is open to the public and could get the most publicity out of it.

                                    There are a great many things going on behind the scenes regarding this situation and yes, they do include some steps toward recovering the horses.

                                    I'm not at all certain why you think that professional counselling is in order. Would this perhaps be some failure on my part to do what you consider to be appropriate wailing and gnashing of teeth? Perhaps you would care to elucidate?

                                        PS None of your posts expressed any affection or concern for the animals, which leads me to believe you weren't really that attached to them, other than as potential income.
