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!

  • If one wants to handle the starved horse differently, one should go rescue their own starved horse and do it their own way.

    One could go to Their Town's Craigslist and Make it Happen. Certainly more useful than criticizing those who already took on their own sack of bones.

    • Great job people.........PM me the Paypal address to send my small dribble....until I have a farm/truck/trailer that's about all I'm good for-but I guess every little bit helps right?

        I hope this is not directed to me.

        I have taken no money, and *do not expect any $* for me hauling this horse. I made that crystal clear from the get go. I have no pay pal, and I have said I do not expect any money at all from it. I was simply trying to help out since I was so close to where the seller was located, (about 1.5 hours away) and I also had the time, the equipment, and lots of hauling experience to do so.

        Th horse has the body score as he does in the photo. The seller was very nice, VERY.

                It'll be good to have the eyes of experienced Walker people on him. One thing to know is that in GOOD condition, hard using condition that is, they tend to run a lot leaner than WB's or QH's. Being young, you can actually expect him to pop back from this PDQ. Hopefully, he's already broke, at least the ad said so. Get yourself a big, built-up Western pad and after a week or so (and only with vet's approval), start hopping on him. It'll be good for muscling him up, and also to get him accepting, respecting and listening to you before he feels so good he's full of major beans! We've rehabilitated 2 who were this bad or worse, and getting them u/s as soon as they are able really helps them pick up fast!

                Honest truth, some days lately logging on COTH has felt like a spiritual beating--so many horrid, greedy unfeeling creeps doing so many horrible or stupid things to horses. You guys have totally, massively, fantastically restored my faith that for every A-hole and jackwagon out there, there are 50 people who'll step up to the plate and put their time, love, barn, and money on the line for a horse in trouble. I'm proud and humbled to be a member of the COTH tribe tonight!

                God bless and keep us posted on how he comes along . . . way to go!

                • Thank you all for the details! It is a very good end to the purchase. Now on to the hard stuff, right? He looks like he will make it - pretty bright eyed for the shape he is in.

                  RMH it was fantastic for you to drive so far to do this - time is not cheap and neither is gas.

                  You all were fantastic to sweep in like you did. Gonna be a lot of work ahead for pony4 and the Red Guy.

                  But don't take his story off COTH - gotta follow along with him. It would be a good opportunity to see what it takes to move him up the Henneke scale. And then to make him a useful partner for an owner one day.

                  As we all know - the purchase is the least expense.

                  But the paybacks are incredible!

                  • His name should be Fahrenheit.

                    I do not think he will be rideable for a long many many months. Oh I forgot, I saw the bit he was using and it is a plain snaffle with an 8" shank. It was one of those interchangeable bit/shanks. So no heavy big bit, doubt you would need a long shank like that. On my gaited horse I do not use a shank that long. Much shorter.

                    • This thread made me tear up a little bit! Such a wonderful effort by everyone to rescue to boy so happy he's in a new home and getting the love he deserves!

                      • Considering the former owner has a bunch of other horses, and you say both he and his girlfriend seemed nice, what was your take on why they're so thin? Was he unaware that this IS too thin? Did he offer any explanation? PM me if you want to keep it private for their sake; this guy is a quality horse who is a dead ringer for several bred by a close friend of mine who also has a cremello stud, so I'm kind of wondering if he bought some of her babies. If it's a cluster-f. and he's out of money, she might help out as well, especially if they were hers. Her old stud threw a lot of red 'uns with that white nose which made me wonder.

                        I'm assuming we're not calling in the air-strike from Animal Control?

                        • What a great happy ending story to read!!! He looks like he is going to be absolutely gorgeous when he fills out. Great work everybody!!

                            Also wondering the same thing regarding the owner's explanation for his horse's condition. Really was hoping to hear that he had no other horses, but at least it sounds like we got the one who was the worst off. Browsed through CL to see what the cremello looks like but couldn't find the ad... Really hoping that horse has also found a knowledgeable, loving home. I'm also guessing/hoping that the mule and black mare were at a relatively healthy weight since rmh_rider didn't mention their condition.

                            • Is the link to the Google Doc on here somewhere or does someone need to send it to me?

                              Love hearing every single snippet of this story and so glad he's in a nice safe warm barn tonight with all the storms passing through TN. Please keep updating about this feller......I feel like he's a part of each of us.

                              • So many good things about this thread... COTHers teaming together for good, volunteering their funds, offering a place to stay, going out of their way to haul on short notice, coordinating the response to the ad, fronting the money for this sweet looking horse, and so on. And I swear Sir (seems to fit, at least for now) seems quite happy in his new stall.

                                It's been a pleasure to read this thread and live a bit vicariously.

                                  Oh for heaven's sake, I just asked a question! Lighten up. If I don't ask, I don't learn, and there may well have been a reason, other than expediency, for keeping a starving horse in a stall rather than a paddock. And for what it's worth, I have rescued several starving horses and fattened them up nicely; but if there is a reason to do things differently than what I have been doing, well, I'd like to know.

                                  As for my question being useful, perhaps the answers (or the question) could be useful for another reader.

                                  And I certainly could not be criticizing this wonderful good deed, the time expended to make it happen, the incredible generosity of so many, or the beautiful, sturdy, clean stall that Sir is enjoying!

Pony4Me says his personality is very fizzy! As to tack... well... I knew I kept all that saddle seat stuff for a reason... When it does come time to put stuff on him we have everything we need! I even have a TWH *show bridle* that I bought for *one* photo session w/ my ASB just b/c I thought the colors on the browband and cavesson were pretty! I'll dig it out and once he has weight on him I'll pick up a show girth at World Champion on my way to Pony4Me's some weekend, and then we can say he ships with tack! I have a pretty leather halter for him too. He'll be stylin' within weeks!

                                        • Don't forget to select "gift" when you paypal, so no fee will be deducted. The horse is obviously "family or friend" so make sure he gets all the money to go with him for wormer and vet and all.

                                          And just double checking, is the paypal address with a _ before and after the @? Nope, it's not. Got to recheck before paypal sent. I once sent some $ to another Cother to buy a CL horse and added or subtracted an "L" from her name. Finally got that right!

                                          Thanks to all who organized and did all the hard work and physical labor. Make sure you get gas money out of Sir's stash.
