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!

    • Laurierace, you are not looking at this filly. This filly has never had a video taken, much less a sales picture. She has not been on the market. I'm not sure who's video or sales ads you are talking about, but it's not this filly nor are they mine. Continue on. I am going to deal with this problem. I do feel awful that you are all dragging someone else down with me. You are not evaluating my breeding program as you do not know who I am, and as I said, one foal of all I've bred I can't get through to is not bad. My plan is not to rehabilitate her, but to bring her in, get her handled enough that she can safely for everyone and herself be put to sleep. That may take a day, a week or two weeks, but that is my plan.
      The coincidences are amazing then.

      This alter and another Cother both often mention having bred/raised 50 foals.

      Both have an 09 filly born in November.

      Both have same aged filly unhandled and not halter broke.

      Both are breeders that have moved farms in the last year, from renting to owning.

      Alter said:
      She's been in a barnyard (Large enclosed stall with baby friends). We no longer are renting that barn.
      Video from other Cother shows filly in exact same unusual setup.

      Both charge $200 for board.

      Both have asked the same tax questions.

      Both say they vaccinate their young stock without haltering out in turnout.

      Both of their November 09 fillies were fine and able to be handled and haltered before weaning, both were weaned late and both became feral after weaning.

      Both state serious health issues, lack of vet care for silly reasons, become surprised when others find their lack of vet care for serious issues shocking, regroup and magically missing vets are showing up or chatted with on phones, serious issues become a lot less serious and both alter and Cother are now doing everything they said they wouldn't/couldn't do with vets that wouldn't/couldn't show up.

      The odds of all that being coincidental are kind of astronomical.

      • 8 videos were removed.

        Alter logged in earlier, alter logged out, regular name logged in, logged back out and then alter logged back in.

        Just do what's right by all of your horses, please. This one is suffering, UV is very very painful and nobody is believing the banamine on the food story change or the vet working with you now.

        Seriously work on your plan from late last year and thin the herd as much as possible even if you give some away. Or free lease out some. Pare down to the bare basics and those who are being boarded/you're not financially responsible for. Not using the vet so often on multiple horses has not benefitted the animals at all. We all understand how astronimically expensive even basic vet care is for a couple/few horses. It adds up fast to enormous debt. Having so many that you cannot afford is never a good idea. Also please stop taking in "rescues" and freebies. You know by now: there's no such thing as a free horse. And if you can rehome rescues so fast, you can do the same for your own. Before someone else has to rescue them from there.

        • [QUOTE=halteralter98;6699178]Here feet are fine. She has great feet, small, perfect feet. She's not locked in a stall, they were fine. We have great soil and most of the horses the farrier just rasps off. So don't worry, no elf shoes on her.
          QUOTE]

          I'm calling b#llsh%t on this response! No way will her feet be fine! If the others got rasped then she'd need some rasping done too (you do realize they grow right? and can get long even on "dirt"!!

          My 3 yr old was in a field until we got him a month ago.....and guess what.....he stands nicely for the farrier because he GOT farrier work (same as you say just some rasping) but he also stands for the vet because guess what..........he had his shots AND teeth checked AND health check up AND gelded! He also liked and knows people and even though had not many manners he knew how to lead and be caught (and let me tell you he's learned manners FAST! There's no excuse........NONE AT ALL for how you've let this filly go!

            Dang. that's some serious sleuthing. My curiosity is killing me on who this person is......

            • Agreed. A PM please?

              Comment


              • I've been sleuthing all morning, and I'm not half the CSI that MistyBlue is. I have turned up almost nothing.... of course whose to say that the OP isn't going back and deleting 'incriminating' posts on here. I have a hunch... but it's probably wrong.

                I usually try to stay out of these types of things, because COTH can be a rough place, but this situation is shocking to me. If the OP is a regular poster, he/she HAD to have known that this was going to turn into a trainwreck. There is no way that, with the facts that were given, it would have been lots of 'jingles' and the whatnot that I think the OP was looking for.

                  • Because I am trying so hard NOT to write the meeting summary out of the notes sitting on my desk, I'm 99% sure I know who MB is claiming the OP really is.

                    And now I'm embarrassed for even admitting that I took the 10 mins out of my day to figure it out. But also slightly pleased with myself lol

                            If that sales horse is not this horse - how do you think the owner is feeling having their horse now thought to have eye problems?

                            i really do not get why folks here behave like pack animals. who cares who the OP is? why do y'all feel the need to act like a bunch of starving vultures? who are you helping?

                            it is disgusting and a sad reflection on human nature and completley and utterly predictable.

                            unfortunately the OP didn't stop posting so this entire thread was written before the 2nd page.

                            i think everyone here should step back from their keyboards and look deep into their hearts and ask if what they are doing is positive and helpful.

                            to the OP: good luck with your filly. I don't know why you continue to post?
                            I don't buy that since there haven't been any actual links to videos or ads, and most of us have no idea who the alter is alleged to be.

                            • 15k for the very healthy and hardy filly? Has that alway been the price?

                              Answering my question, No.

                              • Aspenlucas is the name that came up when I looked for breeders who'd produced around 50 foals. On her website http://frostyoaks.blogspot.com/2012/...ales-list.html she has a November '09 mare listed for $15k.

                                If another name came up for someone else then I am sure they will correct me.

                                ETA: http://www.equinenow.com/horse-ad-385000 is her ad at $950 which mentions she is "working on being halter broke" which is in keeping with the OPs posts.

                                • For those of you who are wondering:

                                  Doing a google search of this site for the term "50 foals" will give you a good idea.
