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!

        What are the ingredients?
        Important for picking the solvent

          WD-40. We used it at a show once to get caramel from a caramel apple out of someone's hair. Also try peanut butter --- I know it gets bubble gum out of hair. Also try alcohol. Just have to find the right solvent, like 5 said.

            Once you find out what works, you gotta tell us how it happened. I know it won't beat whatsherface who went wine shopping with a clay mask stuck on her face, but I'm still hopeful for a good story.

                When a friend mentioned, as she walked by the wash stall, 'I like the purple streak in your hair', I ignored her thinking she was being funny, so the Thrush Buster sat on my hair for hours before being discovered [by me that is].
                In my then blonde hair.
                The week before I started in-house training with uber conservative company.

                  I assumed it was like Saddl Tite, so went and looked it up and had to share the irony of the description:

                  Instant grip. Easy to clean off. 5 oz.

                      Definitely the WD-40. It is what everybody uses to get the gunk out of show cows after they compete. It also takes off the grease paint like paint sticks we use for checking heats. And tree sap.

                      You might try skin so soft by Avon. That is pretty good at stripping hair color off of skin and other sticky stuff. Which is why I won't use it as a moisturizer, only mosquito repellant!

                          I've used olive oil to get pine sap off my hands and out of dog hair. it works pretty well and is non-toxic and won't damage your hair. might be bit greasy for a few washes unless you have very dry hair.

                            Olive Oil, then Baby Oil, then WD-40, but Goo Gone or similar harsh items as a last resort only. Then use a good amount of liquid dish detergent and wash it off your hair and skin thoroughly. If you hair is altered by perms, or color in any way it might do some interesting things to the color, or curl also.

                                  I know when a bottle of thrush buster 'exploded' in my back seat I tried everything to get it out along with the smell. Left the windows down and the neighbor's cat decided to add to the smell with his urine. After speaking to an old friend of my dad's he said to try gasoline, and it worked. Stain and both smells gone.

                                    I second WD-40. It gets everything out of hair, without ruining human hair or horse hair.

                                    And yes, I too want to know how it got in human hair!

                                    As for those with the urine issues and issues with smell in vehicles, use the same old trick that Atlanta police have always used to get urine and vomit and all those fun things that defendants leave in the back of squad cars: put lots of newspaper on it when the urine/vomit/etc is wet, and the chemicals in newsprint will get rid of the smell. Put something heavy on top of the newspaper to press it into seats/carpeting/etc.

                                      Avon Skin So Soft. It removes just about anything.....I found out about it when the fence painting crew was using it to wipe the asphalt fence paint from their hands and arms. It is a bit disturbing to imagine what happens if you add it to the bath as directed.
                                      Good Luck.
