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!

Regumate in my shoe..

  • Regumate in my shoe..

    Okay.. I dumped a bottle of regumate into a barn boot by accident and thought I caught it before any came out. Sadly, my sock is leaving greasy prints in the house now.

    How long will I be off my cycle? Any other side effects?
    I'm 48. so how do I know it's the regumate or the menopause?

    You just can't make this shit up. And yes, I'd be laughing too if this happened to you.

    Sorry, but I am laughing Honestly, you may want to find a number on the container and call the manufacturer. Otherwise I am no help.

    Look on the bright side....at least you are past child bearing age. If it helps with menopause please let us know; I could use some help.


    • #3
      I'd be checking with the manufacturer and a health care professional ASAP...that is potent stuff and a lot of vets recommend that women not handle it at all. There are also threads on here that are pretty informative. Be safe!

        How much would you say got into the boot or what's the amount you most likely absorbed through your foot?

        Calling the manufacturer would be a good idea. For reference, I handled it in my younger days on a breeding farm (many, many bad stories!) and would usually end up getting a small amount(<1ml) on my hand. That stuff soaks up quick! I didn't notice any changes to my cycle, I was 17/18 at the time and pretty regular. I finally made the boys who I worked with administer it after a while!


        • #5
          Sansena, having done similar things, my only advice is to call the manufacturer. That may be before, or after, the glass of wine and the laughter ;-)


          • #6
            I spilled it on my hand one time years ago and was 4 days late; impressive, since I was NEVER late!

            Just scrub it off everything, wash your socks in dish soap which cuts oils, and as the Zen master said, "Don't think about a monkey!"


            • #7
              I spilled some on my hands years ago and it stopped EVERYTHING immediately, I think for 5-7 days. Can't remember now, but it was not a lot and I washed it off pretty quickly. You may have more problems due to the length of time exposed.


              • #8
                I used to handle it all the time... Never affected my cycle, but gave me wicked headaches! I also recommend calling either the manufacturer or poison control if you are worried about it. On the positive side, I swallowed my sip of tea before opening this thread - my ipad is thankful!

                  I was giving it to a mare for weeks (we must have started her right after my cycle) I was really, really good about wearing gloves, being clean about the whole process, not get any on me. Well I must have been getting it some how on me, because 4 weeks or so later my period never came. Well, I was dating a boy at the time and while I was on BC things happen. So about 2 weeks goes by and still no period. Now I am flipping out. I took 3 pregnant tests and they all came up negative (of course they would)

                  BTW, all the while I am still dosing the mare.

                  I could not figure out what was going on until I noticed that I was getting a little bit of drool ....DROOL!! on my forearm each time I dosed the mare. I stopped dosing the mare (had my stall guy do it for me) and I started right up again.

                  So I am sorry OP that you are going though this.....but deep down, I am laughing at the situation. At least you Know you did it.

                    I think regumate got me pregnant. Not kidding.


                    • #11
                      Lol, that much?! I'd call my doctor. I handled a bucket that had been used to dose a mare with Regumate at a horse show two days in a row and it messed with my cycle, also might have been the reason why I was a crying mess the day after (Not a normal thing for me). I stopped doing anything with that particular bucket or the Regumate, and everything, including my emotions, went back to normal. And that was just from residue left on a bucket. It's potent stuff!


                      • #12
                        I know a woman who ended up in the hospital for a week after having a mishap with the stuff. Please call a doctor. When DD was about 3, she thought that a 1,000ml bottle would make great mudpies in the shedrow. I freaked out and called the vet. He said since she wasn't old enough to cycle she was fine.

                          I gave one dose to a friends mare. Wore gloves and didn't think I got it on myself. About five days later I started the period from Hell... seriously, I was awful... about 3 times heavier than normal.


                          • #14
                            It'll probably mess with you for quite a while.

                            When I was a teen, I helped cover barn chores while my trainer was on vacation. The always had a guy handle giving mares regumate to prevent issues. But he had to be out sick one day, the other two guys who worked at the barn just were stall help, not horsey... and so I had no choice. This mare spit the whole lot right back out on me, soaked into my shirt. So... seeing as there were guys about, I was not about to do the "right" thing (medically) and lose the shirt. Finished chores, drove the half an hour home
                            My cycle was screwed up for the best part of 6 months.

                              Well, if that's not a ringing product endorsement, I don't know what is!

                                  Hoping you threw out the boots and socks

                                  It is not worth farking around with the possible chronic contact with hormones. Barn boots are inexpensive compared to problematic periods and the adverse effects of imbalanced hormones.

                                  It is challenging enough to deal with the naturally occurring stuff

                                  the barn I was at it took me a while to figure out I was being exposed. Foreman was rinsing the syringes in the same sink we used in the tack room for tack cleaning.
