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!

He's a fair trek north for me, actually (about 5 hours), but it might be worth road tripping for an Odie Fest with all his fans! Ooh..Jenners needs to host an OdieCon! Party!!

            Odie was doing well today. Seemed a little sore, maybe the cold? But he was still walking and chasing me.

              That's his bestie, Rory, my ISH. They have a "special" relationship. Abusive but then they obviously love each other very jealously.

                    • Oh, Oh! - I asked too! Waiting with bated breath to hear if we've been accepted (hope Odie knows I have a herd of donks who have all been jingling for his recovery!)

                        You have a HERD?? In WA? Nearby, can I come see? I showed DH Odie's breeder's site, where the wee donkettes are sold for thousands, and tried to convince him that I needed some jennys (no jack, Odie shall be the john of my heart forever and I don't want nothin disrupting that!).

                        DH said no. He knows me so well. He said that I wouldn't let the donkettes go. I said I would, no problem, because I would have other burritos .

                        Basically I was picturing Rory in a field surrounded by tiny herd of mini donkeys. He would be SO HAPPY!

                          • Love Odie! Been lurking here following him, and would love if he accepted my friend request as well . Makes me think I need my BO's mini and mini mule baby to have their own page too .

                            • Jenners could you please keep posting some updates here and some pictures and videos? I cant see anything on his facebook page and I need an Odie fix!! Thankyou for humoring the technology-challenged!

                                Absolutely!

                                Odie is still doing well. I'm going to call tomorrow to schedule his appointment, hopefully everything will go quickly once his cast is removed and splint applied. I hope once he is doing ok on "paddock rest" to move him home. My thought at the moment is to put him in Nika's paddock during the day, which has the longest shared fenceline with the pasture for him to interact with Rory, and at night either stay in with Nika, or put him out in the pasture while Rory and Nika are locked in their individual paddocks. That way I can prevent rough housing while Odie's tendons/ligaments strengthen and he gets some bone mass back.

                                Recent pictures and video:

                                After I moved him into Twitch's stall, I left the top half of the dutch doors open and Odie kept playing like he hated Twitch and would go no where near her. I loaded stuff into the truck and came back to find this .

                                http://youtu.be/8LczhlQ9qrs

                                We stopped to bring him hay Saturday on the way (actually not on the way at all ) to a birthday party, so I got to love on him a little. We got one good shot and then he turned all grumpy. I think because DH shut the top of the door after someone (cough Twitch dough) pulled off a chunk of wood.

                                    No update today. I didn't go to the barn :-(. More BO drama, even though Odie is in a stall that is normally occupied by one of DH's horses, they won't reduce what I'm paying. Also, starting Jan 1, they are going to charge more for Odie alone than what we pay for each of DH's horses...while occupying a spot we're already paying for.

                                    So anyways, pretty uncomfortable. I've managed to find a place for Odie, now we're going through our limited options to move DH.

                                    • Really??? For crying out loud.... seems like there is something else going on here. Maybe it's a good time to get Odie and DH's horses out of there.
                                      At its finest, rider and horse are joined not by tack, but by trust. Each is totally reliant upon the other. Each is the selfless guardian of the other's very well-being.

                                        Yeah. My guesses are, BO is still mad I moved my horse in Feb to be with my trainer, they are tired of mucking Odie's stall because it has bedding and are charging more to make me leave (tactic suggested here on COTH, sure sucks when it might be you), or think we have no other options and are milking it for all it's worth.

                                          I was willing to give BO the benefit of some doubt previously (rather a struggle) but this indicates some derangement
                                          Exactly how much stall carnage can one tiny donk manage
