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!

            Jenners is a very good friend of mine. She has quite a menagerie. Give her a hug from me. I haven't seen her IRL in almost a year. I miss her.

              Ha, she definitely got to meet the craycray BC.

              It was good to meet you! Odie loved all the attentions and scritchins! And you got to see how spoiled he is .

                  It was great to meet you too! I got to meet the dogs and the horses. And for those of you following the barn dog thread? The Jenners dogs are the nice kind of barn dogs - very well behaved! It was a lot of fun.

                  Odie is absolutely adorable. And opionated! LOL! Watching him try to buck up the barn aisle on three legs was totally adorable. And my, does he ever have strong feelings on things. You know the saying 'dogs have owners, cats have staff'? Odie has staff.

                  I had a wonderful day - I visited our retired mare, then rode, then grabbed a ferry over to the island, and drove the length of it to get to a really beautiful area and met The Jenners and Odie, (and the man who coined the 'evil burrito' phrase), then drove home via Deception Pass. It was a great Saturday. And really fun to meet another Cother in person. I highly recommend it.

                      He seems to be fine :-). He is trashing his stall DAILY, all his tubs are pulled out and upside down, and his ball is outside the stall all the time. So I think his banishment to stall living is starting to get to him, even though size-wise I suspect the stall is like 30'x30' to an average horse .

                      I did get him a Jimmy's Hanging Ball Saturday, DH said it didn't look touched yet by yesterday, and I haven't gone out yet today.

                        OK, he has DEFINITELY discovered the joys of a Jimmy's Hanging Ball... This is how I found it tonight. And no, I didn't leave it flipped around the panel like that .

                        Cast is still doing fine as far as I can tell. He is not walking on it, but he is putting some weight on it when he stands and puts it down when he decides to move faster than a walk. I should probably call the vet this week and see if that's ok. From his speech on keeping the bottom of the cast wrapped in duct tape, etc etc, I think he was expecting him to be, yanno, walking on it.

                        Also, he got to go nekkid tonight. He's is really starting to get some serious fur.

                          Odie is pretty much the most adorable thing that I've seen in a long time.

                            Update, he's FINALLY using the leg. I tried and tried to get decent video, but every time I stopped what I was doing to catch him, he'd stop and stare at me. Turkey. So I got him harassing me while I was trying to put the wheel barrow away.

                            Also, some very cute itching at about 1:30.

                            I'm starting to be concerned about getting his feet trimmed... He was due when this happened. Yanno, back at the beginning of Oct . But I still can't get him to trust his balance enough to even be able to pick a front foot, much less get it trimmed. My best thought is to see if I can get my farrier to come out when Odie is knocked out for the hopefully last cast, and get the three support feet done. I'd be fine with letting DH trim him, except I was battling some WL on the good hind foot (of COURSE!) and now there's some funky missing spots/growth there that I'm worried about having trimmed properly. But that's still three and a half weeks away.

                            I wonder how much Odie would object to an improvised sling?? With some dorm on board?

                            ETA: you can tell he's obviously terrified of the wheel barrow and I beat him regularly...

                            • If he can get up and down easily, how about teaching him to lay down and let you handle his feet while he is down?

                              That is what we did with this mare, that was too lame to hold a foot up any time and very heavy pregnant, so we taught he to lay down and stay there for trimming:

                                • Oh---the cuteness just won't stop! I am out of adjectives to describe him. He looks just like the donkey stuffed animal my dad got me when I was a little girl! So squeezable! Get well, you little stinker!

                                    Bluey, I think that would work except we've tried laying him down before. He objected, quite vigorously, and was sedated at the time.
