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!

Emaciated CL Horse (Tennessee), UPDATE: Rescued!! (pg. 8)

  • I'm wondering why you want to confine him to a stall? Because he is so thin, I can't imagine he has the energy to be galloping around and losing more weight. It just seems like it would be better to follow the feeding protocol for starved horses and let him have a little space to walk around, with the idea that a little movement helps with digestion, maintains hoof health, and minimizes stress. Of course, this is assuming you have a small bare paddock, round pen, or arena.

    I can see one advantage to a stall: it can be heavily bedded to encourage him to rest and to support those bony prominences and prevent bedsores when he is lying down. So it would seem to me the best of both worlds would be a heavily-bedded stall with access to a grass-free paddock.

    What do you think?

          Thanks Mod 1, so sorry, it's been so long since I did one of these that I forgot!!

          I'm updating the spreadsheet now and we'll let Google Docs host that, I do believe. They're rich.

          Horsey is supposedly on his way now & en route to Pony4Me! Yay!! Thanks y'all!!!

          I really liked some of the names for the poor boy that were being submitted on the TWH Abuse thread. If someone would like to help in some way but has no $, maybe one of you could compile them all into a poll here on COTH so everyone can vote on what his name should be?

As "using" horses they can't be beat; and I was a QH person for the first 40 years!
            Just a sentimental kind of day I suppose, but this really choked me up Yes, they are "try-ers" and so darn good at forgetting and forgiving.

            • I think the stall confinement might be due to limited housing availability given the short notice of TWH's arrival (today!). My understanding is the question was a "is this going to be okay for now?"

              Hey - what's the new boy's name? Oops - just read WA post. A naming poll is excellent idea!

              Comment


              • Update for all concerned. He's here, and he's very thin. He's in a stall for a couple of days for safekeeping, but we will hand graze him once he's settled down. He has a lot of energy, and is only about five years old.

                I will post pictures later, and we'll take this all off-line so we can comply with the COTH fundraising rules. I will have to clean my PM box out so give me a day or two to get all of this digested and under control.

                Thanks very much to all who helped. I got to meet St. Germain and rmh_rider. I already knew Noctis and War Admiral. Great folks, and I look forward to meeting many more of you.
                It's 2017. Do you know where your old horse is?

                • Quick naming update - Noctis' 5 y/o daughter "LittleMissNoctis" wanted to know if he could have "Sir" for a barn name "because he looked so sad but still dignified". I asked LMN if we could consider "Sir Roy" and she liked that so let's add that one to the poll if you please!

                  Thanks so much all y'all, we'll be in touch w/ the link to the Google Doc once I get it finished & posted! (It'll be tonight for sure.)

                                Let us not forget proper quarantine and sanitary measures. One starved horse is not a reason to endanger others on the premise.

                                      • Whew. I am home. About an hour ago.

                                        The guy who was selling the horse was very nice. Very. He had the most lovely light green shade of eyes. He is a younger guy. His girlfriend was there and she was very nice too.

                                        All went well. The seller also has a cremello TWH gelding also to sell, and a white "saddle mule" which means he is gaited. I saw him move and he is gaited, so is the cremello. He did put the cremello on CL a few hours ago. The TWH cremello has a BS of 3. The red one was 2. He has a small black TWH mare also. Oh and a goat with some horns. Not sure if the black mare, or goat is for sale. I think the cremello is young also. Probably under 5.

                                        St Germain, and Pony4me (and Pony's husband) were SO nice. Their barn is perfect. Very sturdy, clean, quiet. Just perfect.

                                        There may be papers available. I got St Germain to ask about them. Maybe he will send them.

                                        Except for me loosing my cell phone in the house before I left (dratted all, but found it in the kitchen), there was free XM in the truck (must be for the memorial weekend - thanks XM), and the weather was 15 degrees cooler there, than it was an hour south, the drive was smooth, getting the horse easy also. He loaded, unloaded, Pony4Me's husband took the mail box out, I got out on the road just fine and didn't get in the ditch, and I got home just fine! Thanks of course to my GPS.

                                        Whew. No lama drama. Ya!

                                        Anytime you go up to TN it is always SO lovely. Rolling hills of vivid green, beautiful landscapes, homes and property which makes you gasp at their beauty, weather was nice, people are always nice. All's well, ends well for my part that is. The work is still to happen with him with his health.

                                        I do not think this horse could have handled too long of a drive. Today's haul was just enough for him. Local. Once he was loaded, an hour at the most drive. I was very careful with him hauling. I always am though with all horses, always.

                                        Good night!
