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!

      The star of March is Sunny, a BLM Mustang mare from the Twin Peaks herd. Here's her story, and how she got from CA to a rescue in NJ and then to her perfect home with a good friend of mine. She's now enjoying life as a dressage/trail horse: http://thetdnblog.blogspot.com/2012/...nys-story.html

              I'm thrilled to share a calendar review from legendary photographer Barbara Livingston:

              "Sarah K. Andrew is an unbelievably talented photographer, world-class - and she treats each horse in this calendar with beautiful reverence. The profits from the calendars all help an important cause - helping equines in need - and the images, and the accompanying stories, will stir your heart...win-win!"

                  From celebrity mule Rosebud, on her recent stardom in the calendar feature in the Horse and Man Blog...

                  "Thank you for posting my beautiful pictures. I love it when Ms. Sarah comes to take my pictures because I get to wear my favorite hats and because Ms. Sarah has a laugh that just makes you want to whinny along with her. I hope that you will buy the calendars and see all the other beautiful horses and pesky ponies. I must say that I am just grateful that they are on the calendar and not taking up space in my paddock.

                  Whoops, Mom says I have to be nice and remind everyone that the funds from the calendar go to a really really good cause and that One Horse At A Time, Inc. is responsible for gelding several of those really pesky ponies here at the rescue. So please buy one so that the rest of them can be gelded and go away."

                    "In a season filled with commercialism and cynicism, it's nothing short of a Christmas miracle to discover Sarah Andrew's Horses and Hope calendar. Filled with true tales of inspiration, Horses and Hope is a reminder of what can be achieved if we don't give up or give in, but dedicate our collective will to achieving that which needs to be achieved. Sarah's photography is beautiful, the illustration magnificent, and the overall result a masterpiece you'll be proud to share with your loved ones at Christmastime, all while receiving that special satisfaction you get from knowing that doing so means you're not part of the problem, but part of the solution." -Sue Finley, Vice President/Co-Publisher, Thoroughbred Daily News

                      "They look like normal enough horses on the cover... but when you open this special calendar and read these horses' stories, you'll never take a horse's handsome head shot for granted again. Are you looking for a feel-good holiday gift that your friends will love? I think I've found it. I can say that with confidence, because the 2012 edition of this calendar is hanging over my desk...and I'm saving that spot of honor for the 2013 edition... Saving horses is, like any great mission, a thing that is worked on one day at a time. But at the end of the year, you can look back and see your accomplishments. By ordering this calendar, and giving it as a gift to your friends or business associates, you help assure that at the end of 2013, there will be many horses whose welfare needs were met, as a guarantee of the year's--and the calendar's--success." -Fran Jurga, publisher/editor, Hoofcare and Lameness and The Jurga Report

                        “The journey of feedlot horses from forgotten to beloved is documented in this incredible calendar, a gift of love from top equine photographer Sarah Andrew. She sees hope in their guarded expressions, bloom in their lackluster coats, and shows that these animals have so much yet to offer. Every page and every story warms the heart and steels the nerves for the continuing fight for the lives of these horses. No true horse-lover should be without this calendar, with its proceeds making a difference for these horses." -Gina Spadafori, author, The Ultimate Horse-Lover

                            "I just got my copies of the 2013 HORSES AND HOPE calendar, with the amazing photography of Sarah K. Andrew...and I'm just drying my eyes now....in a great way. The stories are so inspirational, the photos like paintings, the sayings great
                            (including one by Ansel Adams that I'd never heard that relates to photographers)..... Unusual important dates are listed, the printing is excellent, the typeface and colors wonderful.... AND the calendar helps feed countless horses in need.

                            It's a very (!!!!!!) beautiful calendar - photographed and written by and for the heart... Hope many others will buy it! Kudos to you, Sarah, for working your magic again..."

                                  I received this wonderful story today about the calendar...

                                  Sarah, the 2012 calendar hangs in my classroom. My students are the ones who make sure the right month shows. I have 60+ autistic, behavioral kids who rotate thru my pre-vocational program (assembly, packaging, sewing and woodworking). One young man who doesn't speak very much stood up unexpectedly yesterday, walked to the back of my classroom and touched the calendar. " Donkey" he said. "J, how do you know that is a donkey?" I asked. He touched the picture again, pointing to the ears. "Ears" I said, "His name is Jefferson and I am going to visit the farm where he lives tomorrow. Would you like me to take a picture of him for you?" J smiled and sat back down. His teacher came down to pick him up at the end of his session and I told her I wanted to show her something. "Hey, J, can you do something for me? Can you find me Jefferson's picture?" He looked at me, stood up and walked over to the calendar. "Jefferson" he said as he pointed to the picture. his teacher said "wow, you found the horse!" "Donkey," J told his teacher. His teacher looked confused and turned to me with the question I was expecting... "How did he know it wasn't a horse?" J touched the picture and said, "ears!" His teacher didn't know the difference, but J knew. He has never looked at the calendar before, but I pulled out the 2013 calendar and he smiled. Those calendars, your pictures, are a new addition to my little toolbox of reinforcers I use to get my kids to do their work. The kids know I have an arsenal of fun, interesting and yummy goodies to pick from for "helping" me. Thank you for not one but now 2 calendars my kids love to look at.

                                      HRTV's Peter Lurie and Zoe Cadman were kind enough to interview me on Friday about the calendar- you can see it here:

                                        Another lovely testimonial about the calendar:

                                        "It felt like I got my calendar two days after I ordered it. Way to go! I was sitting on the couch reading it from cover to cover as the awful news was coming in from Connecticut, and it worked as an antidote of hope. Thank you Sarah and Gina, and Fran for sharing their important work and a great work of art. Hope comes in all shapes and sizes."

                                          Another great comment about the calendar from Eclipse Award-winning photographer Barbara Livingston:

                                          "Still time to order this beautiful, timeless, wonderfully photographed/written, important calendar, with the stunning photography of Sarah K. Andrew.... (no, I don't get a cut, ha ha ha). Helps horses, and your friends will remember your good taste, and generosity of spirit, all year long!"
