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!

  • 2 Horses Left for Dead - Posting for a Friend

    I am posting this at the request of Cheryl,, who runs Horse Rescue Relief & Retirement Fund, Inc. The horses in question did not come from her farm. She's asking if anyone here in GA recognizes these horses - trying to find out where the Heydon's got them.

    http://horseleftfordead.blogspot.com/

    (Thanks Choco for finding the prior thread):

    “I have a horse rescue organization in Cumming, GA. These two men came to my farm wanting to adopt 4 horses for the summer then bring them back. They said they were going on a trip of a lifetime together, father and son. Admirable? I thought it sounded like a nice experience. After speaking to them a while, they had no horse knowledge, no trailer experience and didn't have any use for the horses after their trip. I had a gut feeling NOT to let them have any horse now or later. I am glad my gut speaks to me. I would have been devistated if it was any horse in my care that this happened to. I am sick to my stomach seeing any horse treated like this. It is absolute cruelty.
    When they left here, they were heading to the local horse auction facility to see what they had cheap. These horses once belongs to someone who cared and loved them. I hope the owners never find out so they can be spared the heartache of this suffering.

      Isn't it possible to recreate the route they took from Georgia to Montana? I would think there has to be some trail of purchases along the way.....I would think they would be under investigation by the arresting office and that office could have access to their financial records and try to determine where they bought the trailer, the horses, etc. buy looking at their recent credit card and bank records...

          jeta: I think that is what Cheryl is trying to do - find out if these horses came from GA (or wherever). Apparently these two "people" had come to her rescue wanting to adopt from her for their "big adventure", but she turned them down.
          Oh, and sorry - I didn't realize this had been posted before.

              The Heydons make me sick. No words to describe. NO ONE is that ignorant, they just didn't care. Can't think of a punishment just yet for them, but I will.

                Just read on TheHorse.com that these 2 creatures face [B]1 YEAR IN JAIL[B] . That sucks - I hate lack animal abuse laws. Maybe other inmates will make them feel, ummm "welcome", if ya know what I mean.
                Just googled addresses for them - this is sick, too - one lives on a street named Saddle Horn - wonder if that's where they got the idea? Too bad he didn't live on Desolate Island Road in the middle of the ocean.

                  I hope Bubba likes them. And all Bubba's friends.

                  But I also hope any financial assets from these two are frozen and turned over to those caring fir the horses before they get to jail.

                    This was all over Fugly.
                    The Rocky Mtn rider publication has an article on it.
                    The reporter is Dorinda and she is great!
                    I think the website is www.rockymountainrider.com but that may be wrong.
                    Go to fugly and check it out.
                    Everyone should contact wsbtv and all. Even though the big murder trial is going on, maybe a reporter will go interview them. The Atlanta TV stations are great for helping with aninal rescue and abuse cases.
                    The bitterroot humane society has these horses and some others and needs help. The horses have corneal ulcers that were infected for weeks before the 2 women rescued the horses. So the eye doctor was to come look at them this week.
                    The Heydons are just north of Atlanta. Anyone know them?

                        This story shows up in some small papers but not in the larger circulations such as the Atlanta Constitution.
                        I did a search on these guys, but couldn't find anything - I was curious as to who these vile, useless individual scum-bags were since I'm near Woodstock.

                        Would it be an idea to forward this story on to someone with mass media power? Neal Boortz? He's an avid animal lover.

                        I can't think straight I'm so angry right now.

                          What about alerting Ellen about the case? She seems like someone who may be interested. Just a thought!

                            I think that's a great idea!! I just got an email from the Humane Society of the US about a segment that is going to be on Ellen in the near future about Proposition 2 - keeping livestock in small cages for their entire lives.

                            Here is the email address: humanesociety@hsus.org

                            Can't figure out how to get in contact with the Ellen show but I'm working on it.

                                What can be done here locally in Georgia? Has the press been notified by anyone on this forum? If not, I'm willing to make the lives of these two bastards a living hell.

                                    LKF: I'm with you - let me see how to link this to Boortz. Too bad Wes Sarginson retired -he was a huge horse-supporter. Be right back ....EM sent to Boortz. We'll see

                                    Oh, and would y'all like to picket their homes with me? Nah....too much wasted time...even 'tho they're near...can't believe they live near us - yet no - one knows them from the HR community...not a shock.

                                      JAD - you will have to let us know if you hear anything back! I was at work when I posted the idea of contacting Ellen. Thank you for following through with that.

                                        I email Boortz last night along with 2 links of the story and the graphic photos. I really hope he mentions it on his show today (AM 750 8:30 to 1:00).
                                        The reason why I think he would say something is that he hates stupidity and would love to humiliate a couple local asshats.

                                        I pulled up an address for one of the men and I am familiar with the subdivision (white collar $$).

                                        Anyone know any Western/cowboy folks here in Georgia to inquire about the brand in question?
