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!

  • Anybody familiar with Broken Heart Animal Rescue/CJ Rawls in Austin Tx.???

    Is there anyone on here that has any knowledge of this rescue or the woman, CJ Rawls around Austin, Tx. She is interested in two of my broodmares and a Google search didn't turn up anything. I know COTHers "know" everything and everybody!! PM me if you'd rather. Thanks a bunch.

    Why would a rescue want broodmares?????
    That would be my first question.

    Secondly, rescues aren't "interested" in horses, they have enough coming in without looking for any.

        That was my first thought too. I have never heard of a rescue looking for horses. Ever.

          Until proven otherwise, I'm guessing it's a breeder/broker masquerading as a rescue.

                Exactly! Why don't you PM cowgirljenn. She's not real close, but close enough that I'd think she'd know about them (if they're legit).

                  No no no no no no. Just run away now. When a rescue "looks" for horses, especially broodmares I am ALWAYS skeptical. It's possible she might want your mare for her personal use and is using the rescue's name to get it free. The website LauraKY found has only 3 dogs available for adoption. I don't know ANY LEGIT rescue that has only 3 dogs. 13 MAYBE, but not 3.

                    The info I pulled up seems to show her daughter as being in charge of the "rescue". This woman apparently wants my big TB mare and a big homozygous APHA mare to breed western show/performance horses. She "supposedly" is getting away from the rescue due to the stress of idiots neglecting their animals and expecting some else to step in and save them. Lot of that in Texas from what I see!! We've talked several times and she seems nice enough...I just don't need to get rid of my beloved mares badly enough to send them to a bad place!!!
                    I DID think of asking Jenn. She may know something that is not public knowledge. Thanks guys.

                      I haven't heard of her, and Austin isn't that far. We have a lot of members and volunteers around Austin and no one has mentioned them to me either.

                          I don't think it is great news. I normally hear of the rescues around - sometimes because they want our help, sometimes because someone I run into has volunteered for or adopted from them before. I guess the good thing is that I haven't heard anything bad.

                          I'm going to send you a few ideas tomorrow to check her out. (Saw you sent a message but can't answer it easily from my phone).

                            Thanks Jenn. You can PM me here if it is easier. I'm not rushing into any situation I'm not sure of. Too many horror stories about bad mistakes people have made. JB

                              Reply to people who do not even know me

                              My name is Julie Rawls but no one uses or knows me by my legal name Julie, I go by CJ and I am the founder and president of Broken Heart Animal Rescue. I started ths rescue after I got back from Katrina. I only did Rottweilers for a few years and then started rescueing horses and ferrets. I broke my neck for the second time in August of 2009. A I live alone in Dime Box and not Austin and I have very little help with the care of the animals I do it most all by myself. With the shortage of help in this area and the law enforcement that does not seem to give a damn about the animals I decided to close the rescue. I have started competeing in Extreme Cowboy Racing and barrel racing again. I am doing some selective breeding with my horses. I have kept my horses even when the rescue was up and running full time. I have shut down the rescue website to save money even tho I still have a few dogs and ferrets to adopt out.All the horses hae been adopted out My vice president is listing them on her website. I can give anyone vet references and my 501 3C IRS number altho I have cenceled it. Any other ref. can also be given. I am legit and the rescue is not looking for horses. I am personally. They are two separate things. My email is still BHanimalrescue@verizon.net if anyone has anymore questions I will be glad to answer them.

                                There are a few people that know me at bluebonnet equine. Melanie at True Blue Animal Rescue in Brenham knows me very well as I am a lifetime member. I started helping them with the horses before I started doing it here at my rescue.

                                    You are so right rescues do NOT have to look for horses they are having to turn them away since the no slaughter bill passed and the economy went downhill.

                                        Well Rodeocrazy1, you can't post rescue information here if you don't have a 501(c)3. Why would you cancel your 501(c)3 if you still had animals that needed to be rehomed? Reported.
