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!

              OK, you guys from Idaho - chose those windows and shut those doors...keep YOUR snow and rain and howling winds on YOUR side of the border. South east Saskatchewan is now under winter storm AND heavy snowfall warnings. As I look out the south window, there are some REALLY fugly clouds building up, and I can feel thie humidity rising. So please, please shut those doors and keep the whitecrap on your side of the border

                I am actually jealous. I live in Georgia. I am so tired of dealing with the hot, sweaty weather. Not too bad today only 74. I have begged my husband for us to relocate. I have always felt like I was born in the wrong place. When we do get cold weather here, you can always find me out piddling in our barn. I want to hibernate during to summer. I'm sure it is different really living in the kind of cold you guys get, than just dreaming about it. But I'd sure love the chance to find out.

                    I felt the same as you did, so I went to college in CO. Well after living in CO for 5 years, I was sick of the cold, snow, and ice, so I moved to FL. Its still in the 80s here right now. I miss fall for sure, but knowing that its 34 in Fort Collins, CO right now makes me happy that I am in Fl. I miss GA. There are 4 seasons there. Maybe I will end up there in a few years when the SO graduates from school.
                    I love cats, I love every single cat....
                    So anyway I am a cat lover
                    And I love to run.

                        snowing here!

                        Hmm, 27 degrees here, weatherchannel says it feels like 16 degrees. We had snow Thursday night, all day Friday, snow last night, snow all day today. Its pretty white out there! Already slipped and fell scraping ice off my truck windshield.

                        Really love the fact that we're having record winter snow in the rockies for my first winter here. lol Just figures.

                        The cat is lying in front of the heater, the dog is curled up under blankets on the couch, and my truck is covered...again. Its getting hard to talk myself into doing errands. I really hate putting on the down vest, the jacket, the gloves, the hat...getting groceries....putting back on the down vest, the jacket, the hat, the gloves...

                        Actually, this is really cool. I loff it. Except for that falling on my ass this morning. I've never been so close to the Canadian border either-going to give Canadian Invasion Day a whole new significance this Thanksgiving!

                        Guess I should put up some pics of the winter wonderland out there. Very pretty w/ the white draped over the fir trees. Gorgeous.

                            Good grief! Snow? It's been in the 70s in New Jersey - I think it was 80 on Thursday. I gave my horse a bath!

                              you are one sick puppy!!!ROFLMAO Come here and spend 20+ hours a week moving that crap around so you can get out of your yard. I must add that said moving is done in sub-zero temps, and mostly at night when the wind aint howling so much. Said moving goes on for roughly 5 months of the year, sometimes more. This is what i build up ever winter:

                              the block of snow was about all the poor tractor could lift - block was 6' wide, same as the bucket, and pretty thick and deep.

                                It was a beautiful day here in the desert at about 79 degrees. REALLY windy at the barn, but at my house, PERRRFECT. This desert is a huge wind tunnel and when it gets windy, it is WAY windy, but always windier at the barn acrosss the valley than at home where I am protected by a mountain.

                                I miss snow, but only the fresh snow, digging myself was not fun and I hated going out in it. I loved to watcha heavy snow storm though, so quiet and peaceful and beautiful.

                                    I love to ski but not enough to move to a snowy area again. My dog loves the snow. He will play in it, and roll in it.
