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!

  • Great pictures! Thank you. There is another terribly emaciated TB that Mid-Atlantic Horse Rescue has taken in and slowly rehabbed - Rubber Duckie. He is now starting some gentle rides. Looking forward to Bingo having a similar journey over the coming months.

    • Great pictures, Justabob. I've seen several horses go from those horrible pix to beautiful horses. I hope that Bingo makes it through his rehab and turns out as well as the horse whose pix you posted.

      • A small update.

        The Jockey Club couldn't find anything matching him and his tattoo, so we're stumped. That's ok, though, as we love him ... (it IS nice to know who they are).

        His foster "mom" is smitten with him. She says he's doing well, eating well, and getting turned out on grass a little each day (she started him off with limited grass since we don't know when he was last on grass and didn't want to overwhelm his system).

        • So glad to hear Bingo is making good progress, I'm sure he thinks he hit the jackpot with you and his foster mama!!!! Thank you again for everything you do, Jenn, and thanks to all of you that contributed to giving this boy another chance.

            That is so great. I will try to send a little more this month -- got hit with $1400 worth in vet bills last month. BTW, Jenn, does anyone with Bluebonnet need the Platinum Performance BioSponge? I bought a whole jar of it two weeks ago and ended up losing the horse before we used very much of it. You are welcome to it if you need it -- I can ship it to you. Just let me know. I'm sure Bingo doesn't need it, but maybe another horse does, or will.

              I haven't used it before, but let me look up what it does/is in a bit. I've got a really sad case here right now - found estray, beat up, badly lame on a front leg. Vet did x-rays and I'm waiting to hear the verdict. If we can save him, it'll be a long recovery...

              • Updated photo - it isn't a great one (the foster home isn't great at getting photos), BUT you can clearly see he's gotten rid of that nasty old hair. His foster mom says he has a great appetite and is doing well.

                • Holy cow! What a difference! Did you ever find out his JC registry? Is it possible he's from Mexico? I know they have TB racing there, but I don't know anything about how they register their horses. Just thought I'd throw that out there as a possibility.

                  Comment


                  • Great looking horse! A Cother needs to adopt Bingo! A few week or months of feed and hay, dental care, and a pwerpac make all the difference in a horse.

                    Thank you dogontired for doing all the work for Cothers to save this horse. And thank you OP for posting the horse on this thread and allowing us to save him.

                    Now someone adopt him and give him a good life. Please.

                        Never figured out who he is. The Jockey Club gave up on figuring it out, too.

                        I wondered about horse racing in Mexico and hadn't had time to go figure it out yet - it is on my to do list. (I have a very needy rescue horse here right now who is sucking down my time! Between him and two upcoming fundraisers I am stretched too thin... but I will find time soon and see what I can figure out).

                        He may always be our mystery man.

                        By the way, if anyone on this thread is in Texas, Bingo ought to be at our Bluebonnet Horse Expo on Oct. 19th in Austin. He won't go up for adoption for a while yet (as he still needs to gain weight and we need to see what he knows), but I'm hoping he'll come show off at the Expo.

                          Hey Ruth! You and dogontired saved Bingo's life.
                          it is difficult to read some of the tattoos. The jockey club woman was so great when years ago I bought Callie and the BO's husband and I tried every combination of tattoo #s till we got hers right. So the foster should keep trying. The jockey club woman was incredibly patient with me.

                          some Cother needs to adopt Bingo and show him. He's looking great.

                            His tattoo is incredibly clear. There's no mistaking the # or letters (the Jockey Club agrees with that, they've seen the photo of his tattoo). It just does not match anything.

                                we tried that one as well, but not much luck. Jenn, does the foster mom say if how he moves around? Any pacing (same side) or big knee trot with tail hiked up in the air?

                                • Mexican drug cartels have illicit tracks in Texas and New Mexico. They use real race horses.

                                    I'll ask her - when he was here, he didn't move much - he was too busy eating.
