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!

    Thank you both. I was able to find out her age is unknown but not aged, sweet and gentle, no known health problems. She will be darling when she gets to a good healthy weight. Hoping we can make this happen!

          Have only spoke on the phone. Hoping to find transport (none yet) and just meet driver somewhere for the swap. If a driver can be found they could have the Paypal account to get the funds for her purchase and fuel. I think that would be the best way??? I wish I could make the drive but its just too far for me and my schedule. If it doesn't work out I just hope someone gives this girl a serious upgrade!

The lady that's usually willing to take me on jaunts is on vacation Friend.... uhhh C? I've called a few, said she'd let me know in the morning and may be free if she doesn't rider, or if she rides early. Are you free tomorrow?

              Thank you Stushica. I would say that unfortunately I work and won't be home till five though these days I am very thankful to be employed. So it would have to be after that. Otherwise I am afraid I can only get away for a bit on the weekend. I do appreciate your trying.

                    Not from me I miss my days of accessible trailers... nether here nor there. I will be seeing a horsey friend in the morning and have plans of hopefully guilting them into at least getting it to Cleveland where I can hold onto her until equislover or someone else can transport her. :/ Anyone with a rig I can borrow

                        Where exactly is she?


                        • #52
                          I am 3 hours away from Knoxville. If no one any closer than I am turns up to help with transport, I'd be willing, although I can't do anything until after July 28.

                          I'd rather not make such a long trip through the mountains, but if there is absolutely no one than can provide transport other than me, then I'll do it. Then where do I go?


                          • #53
                            Carolina, thanks for offering. I wish I were closer so I could grab her and get her to a safe home. Anyone else able to help out? I can send my usual dribbles for gas, whatever.

                                Sorry to be slow on this, for some reason playing on the internet is frowned upon while working or driving . I have not been able to come up with any transport options. Like I said, I am more than happy (would be thrilled actually) to take in the little girl but she is three hours away so would be six hours round trip and with my job, long commute to and from work, and toddler/family commitments, making the drive just isn't possible. I so love how the COTH community comes together for causes like this. Warms my heart! I'll try to check at lunch to see if she has found a home yet and update all then. I have one last resource to try for transport, hoping to hear back soon. Fingers crossed!

                                  Equislover or anyone in that neck of the woods, check w/ any boarding barns
                                  or even show type barns. Around here many BO also do transport to earn extra money

                                  I checked the mileage from Lake City to Cookeville and it's 104 miles, if EL could pickup in Cookeville.

                                  anyone else have any ideas????

                                    I am SHOCKED--it's been about 40 hours since this was posted, and the pony has not been rescued! Hoping for good news soon. Poor pony..

                                      Update- pony IS still there. Also, I may have a good lead on transport. Hoping and praying! Anyway, once/if I confirm transport, what should I do to start raising the funds? I do have a paypal account, would I just provide my paypal account name? Sorry this is new to me, unsure of how best to proceed? But again I don't want to start in case it falls through but do hope to find out in the next hour.

                                        equislover, if you can arrange transport, we can pm you for your email address, which I believe is all we will need to send assistance to your paypal account.
