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!

  • Horse products used by people?

    In my newspaper this morning there was a feature about beauty products for hair that included 'Mane n'Tail' as a product that has made the cross-over from horse to human use.

    What other horse products do you use?

      Oh I thought you meant products made from horses that people use.

      Where's the fruitbat.....

          I use Eqyys Megatek as a conditioner for my hair.

          I've been known to use Blu-Kote on more than one occasion.....

          Does it count that I used to like to eat the horse treats when I was a kid? Lol

            I just recommended that to a former (non-horse) coworker who is having serious back pain...the look he gave me was priceless. I had to reassure him that he would smell like root beer, and not a horse
            Absorbine liniment for aches and pains at our house as well...great stuff

              I may or may not have used Quic Silver on occasion when my hair was really blonde and I'd run out of purple human shampoo.

                I am a big fan of Sore No More- I probably use more in the house than in the barn. Vetericyn is also pretty fantastic- heals stuff way better than triple antibiotic oint!

                  I use Corona ointment for severely chapped lips and skin, I always use Butler Bova cream for dry skin in the winter and I will use any of the antibiotic ointments (except furazone) on myself if I have an injury at the barn.

                    cowboy magic for my hair, and I do admit to taking Zev when I have a bad cough, it is suspiciously similar to buckleys and it does taste awful but it sure does work. I have also used animalintex on small cuts that are infected, works quite well if you can get it to stay put.
                    for the other way around I bought the two pack of Voltaren from costco, one for me one for the horses.


                    • #11
                      How did the Cowboy Magic work for your hair? Been wanting to try it.

                      I've used Mane & Tail but it makes my hair too frizzy. I keep Tri Care around-I think it works better than neosporine. Had a friend who swore by Hoof Maker, and a vet who used DMSO.

                      And of course vet wraps.


                      • #12
                        It works very well, you don't need alot either so the tube will actually last a long time. My hair tangles into horrendus mats at any opportunity normally, stays knot free with it.


                        • #13
                          They used regular vetrap on my cast when they operated on my arm.
                          Even gave me a choice of colors.


                          • #14
                            Used to use Mane 'n Tail on my hair. It used to get huge knots when wet and that was one of the few things that kept my hair brushable.

                            I have Hoofmaker in my cabinet right now. I actually need to use that on my feet again (really really dry). I also have vet wrap in my home first aid kit. You never know when you'll have to use it.

                            ETA: Oh I also have icy blue liniment gel. Came in handy when I fell off my horse.

                              Arrow hoof stuff is fantastic for nails/hands.

                                Vet wrap... and surpass. The surpass is probably not healthy, but boy does it work! I know there is a human version... haven't gone to the trouble of finding it though...

                                  Absorbine gel liniment...even though it makes my skin lighter where it's applied, it definitely makes your muscles numb!

                                  Eqyss marigold spray! I absolutely love the smell and may or may not have sprayed myself for that alone

                                  Horse treats, salt blocks (I love salt, what can I say), and a small handful of sweet feed here and there. Horses eat it, why can't I?

                                    I've used Mane 'n Tail shampoo and conditioner, Absorbine Liniment, SMZ's, fly spray around my pants legs to keep the ticks away, I've tasted all kinds of feed and treats, took a little bit of ivermectin when I thought I might be plagued by a parasite , vet wraps, and Corona ointment on my thin crappy fingernails to strengthen them up

                                      An old groom at a barn I was at before used powdered bute for himself.

                                        So many of Hilton Herbs products cross over, I don't know where to begin! Also, my husband loves some of the Epona grooming products for massaging his back!
