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!

    I do have a feeling that if you put him in a sling for trimming, you may need to muzzle him as well during the trim. You'll likely have one really mad burrito when it's all over.
    No, no, I hope not so.

    Any critter we had to hoist, they were non-plussed and kind of wondering.
    Didn't seem to mind, if not enjoyed the experience.
    I tell you, cows can get mad and you know it, as I expect Odie could do.

      Hmmm, nah, he's more of a sulky type, very cat like. Like when I initially got him the Uncle Jimmy ball, he refused to look at it and tried to pretend it didn't exist, but kept an ear pointed at it.

      Actually, doing the calendar math, looks like he gets his new cast next week (or gets this taken off, or something), so I might try to schedule both the vet and the farrier and be able to bypass the sling.

      • I guess that would be better for Odie, but depriving all of us of a burrito in a sling? Ok, if it's what's best for Odie, but we're going to need more videos to make up for it!!!

          Well, and there really is NO guarantee that he'll get a new cast. Vet's thoughts were this cast for "at least" four weeks (assuming no complications from cast requiring an earlier change), then re-xray, and possibly another cast for another two weeks. And we hate to take off a cast that is working, because the next one might not. So far I've been rolling in good-cast-Karma.

          I think we're going to get a stall guard and rope just in case he doesn't get knocked down all the way. I've texted my farrier to see if he's available at all next week and called the clinic to see what days the vet is available. Push comes to shove DH can call his farrier try to squeeze us in if he's available, he lives right down the road. Or DH can always do it, but I want that other hind foot done professionally because the WL is pretty pronounced (wet noodle, bad mommy, etc).

          DH did say that we can haul him up ourselves...but I think he forgot that he is having wrist surgery this week .

            Well, I had hoped to have a good update following today's appointment, but the appointment was canceled. My vet, who rocks BTW, saw us on his schedule and they called to reschedule. He doesn't want to change anything, new cast or no cast, because he's going out of town and wants to be here in case anything happens.

            What a great vet

            So the appointment is next week. I'm still not sure how it's going to go, Odie still doesn't "walk" on it, but uses it at cough higher speeds cough little brat. Vet was very adamant that I keep the bottom wrapped in duct tape, etc etc, make sure I checked the bottom and reapply, etc etc...and it's still as nice as the day he applied it. Four weeks ago. I'm super tired and just going to run out to both barns and stroke noses, but I'll make sure to give Odie extra snuggles in thanks-giving. He's so wonderful *dreamy sigh*.

            Some pictures for those dying to see and not on my FB. He followed me into the tack room and had a very superior, site manager checking the progress sort of look on his face .

            So, this is the tack room?

            Hmm. Looks nice.

            He did a good job...

                I think you should post a warning when you put those pictures up.

                I know I can't have one more animal that will outlive me.

                  Yeah. DH's face was when I said I fully expected the Odes to live into his 30s or even 40s (pre-fracture). And of course the world's oldest horse just died this year at the age of 55, and was the same breed Rory is. I'm going to have two geriatric equines wrestling into their golden years...

                  • So cute. And yep Mike hates to reminded that Mini Mo could easily live another 20 years (she's ~12 now). But he was thrilled that she *almost* took a treat from him the other day.

                    • Too cute. We traded our seriously ill Expedition today for Chrysler minivan. We've already flattened the third row and half the second row for the pups,but
                      an evil burrito would fit back there easily. Hey, honey, look what I found on the
                      side of the road??????

                              • As much as I love my horses, once I got my mini donkey (Jeffrey) he completely stole my heart. He is always cheerful and fun, and has appointed himself "President of Entertainment Department." I think everyone should have one! When I am too old and/or crippled to ride, I shall have a whole herd of Evil Burritos!

                                  Aren't they the best?? Odie is such a show stealer. I tried once to get a "selfie" pic of both boys and myself...this is how it turned out.
