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!

Need help in PA...sick rescue horse needs a place to go!

  • Need help in PA...sick rescue horse needs a place to go!

    An old friend of mine in PA recently rescued a sick horse. She did everything remotely and on short notice...He's coughing so was sent to a "quarantine" barn sight unseen...upon seeing facility my friend is very concerned about his safety and care. Does anyone on here know of a quarantine type place that she could board him. Would love to find a place where someone temporarily has no horses so cough wouldn't be a concern..or somewhere that has a separate stall/barn/paddock etc where he could be on his own.
    Please let me know any ideas! THANK YOU!!

    Where in PA is he at (not the facility but what area is the horse in) and has he been seen by a vet yet?

      I don't want to give out the name of the city as it's not my place to out the barn....my friend has trailer and can move horse. I believe he was seen by a vet as he's supposed to be on antibiotics...hopefully getting them but barn owner has tucked away. It sounds like a mess so I'm trying to get her some options. She will provide more details to anyone that thinks they might have a place. I know he had neg coggins but barn owner also will not produce that for her so she's having redone.

      THANKS!

        Can you give a general geographic location, I am in south central so giving her a place in my area may not be of any benefit if she is in northwest, PA is a big state.

          I'm asking because I have a place, not to out the barn. We have quarantine facilities available- central PA. I don't think we'd take on a horse that has a cough already and hasn't been seen, but if he's on antibiotics it might be ok. You can go to the website to see the farm (http://skystables.weebly.com/index.html) I was managing it but I'm not doing that any longer, it's still family owned though. Horse would be more than perfectly safe and cared for there.

              That's about an hour and ten minutes from this barn. If she's interested, let me know - I don't really have any suggestions for out that way though. Good luck to her, hope she finds something.

                    Rescue horse's owner

                    Andrea's friend here... (Thank you Andrea!) we are near Kimberton, PA (think Chester County, Delaware Valley environs) and the horse is near Lititz (vicinity of New Holland, naturally). I want very much to get him within range of a veterinarian and farrier I trust, but my number one concern is getting him somewhere that does not have metal protrusions at leg level, hanging wires from low ceiling, debris with nails on floor, exposure to unknown horses, etc.

                      I know of a place in eastern NJ just over the Delaware that would do if that is not to far to transport the horse. It is run by two Qualified Vet Techs and they also have boarders that are vet techs. PM me if this is of interest to you.

                        Call new Bolton and ask them for a recommendation for a rehab quarantine barn.
                        When I pulled my horses from their boarding site (years ago, in NY) for mismanagement I called my vet who had three recommendations and the one I picked was really really good.

                              I can personally vouch for Maui Meadow Farm. My best friend is one of the managers and my family has known the owner for years and previously had racehorses there. Maui is an excellent facility with excellent care and I highly recommend them for rehabilitation. Please Please Please do yourself a favor and contact them as soon as possible. Visit their website at www.mauimeadowfarm.com - tell them T. Berardi sent you - she will know who it is.
