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!

      Snort. With a few round pen type panels viewable. OP, there's some reason you can't build a chute ... why exactly?

      You're outed here. Your best bet would be to go away, deal with this problem however you are going to deal with it and really re-evaluate your breeding and management program. Seriously. Because it's dead obvious that there are some LARGE problems there.

          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.

          • STOP TALKING! I would be happy to forward the youtube to the mods to compare with your username information if you would like. Poor Izzy. The link to the still of her standing in manure is on your profile.

                I am so confused. If she can be safely vaccinated, why can't she be safely euthanized?

                • OP... I am so confused here with your "clarifying" which feels more like back peddling... I was trying to figure it out but you are making my brain hurt.

                  The fact that you and your vet thought it was ulcers in her eyes makes it no better, you will win no points with that. I knew someone who did a "wait and see" on an eye issue. He had scratched it, it ulcered, and in just a week or two after the initial onset they were not sure they could save his eye. Eye issues are an emergency, sedate her however much is needed kind of situation. Please do not make this mistake with any of your other horses, absolute emergency.

                  Your filly needs a fly mask on desperately. Do whatever you have to do, a shaded pasture is not enough. In my experience, I haven't heard of a horse losing sight with UV and then regaining it after although I am not a vet, I just have awful luck with eye issues. Most likely she is having very bad light sensitivity which is making her react like that if the vision seems to be coming or going.

                  If she can have shots I do not get the problem here? Have the vet inject her with a heavy sedative, THEN halter her, then euth. No need for a long term project here, and if you already cannot work with her and she IS blind good luck trying to gentle her enough to make her act like a lady about it now.

                  Could someone PM me who we think this is?

                      Absolutely incredible -

                      horse is not blind
                      horse is not feral
                      your vet refuses to euthanise

                      BUT let's just kill her because ....

                      • How is it you can have vet do annual shots yet can't euthanize?

                        Backing away now. Good luck to this filly..

                            Since you have decided to "give your filly a chance" while this bout of uveitis has subsided, I'd suggest that you have some work to do. If you don't get her more broke, you'll just repeat history the next time.

                            Can you put a cheap leather halter on her and leave it there?

                                    Dude, we know who you are.

                                    Bit by bit you are deleting sales ads, now you are marking sales videos to private. Are you going to take her off your web page, too? After all, you'd hate to miss a sale. I read somewhere something like she might make a nice small horse for the junior moving out of ponies or the small adult.

                                    Go ahead and delete it, I am likely not the only one to save off a copy of your webpage.

                                    Own it, you keep saying you'll take ownership. You HAVE to. You OWN that filly.

                                    Who else in your lot of miscellaneous bay horses needs immediate veterinary attention? Where there is smoke I am certain there is fire- with that many horses slogging around in straight manure, there will be.

                                    You can 'own it' all day long. But what is sad and troubling and I'm almost certain to be true- not a damn thing will be different in your head tomorrow than it was last week.

                                    • i just want to point out to obvious. the fact that the vid and the ad were taken down does not prove anything. the actual owner (who may or may not be the OP) would NOT want their ad or their vid linked to this thread.

                                      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 find it super interesting that, if that's the case, she hasn't stopped by this thread to say that herself. Since she logged in yesterday and all.
