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!

    And keep Rory from seeing his little man?? I couldn't possibly. Trust me, he NEEDS his donkey donk. He is turning into more of a retard than he already was.

    We do, there are half of a 60' round pen. including the panel with the gate, still at the barn where Rory and Nika live. I meant to go look and see how many, but instead I groomed, banged Rory's tail too short, and got my horse trailer sold (woot!). But we should have enough for the stall plus some, I think. But thanks for the offer!

    • Have you heard of the herd of mini donks in Sequim that need new homes? They are free. 13 of them and they can go in pairs, groups and a few singles...

      • OK, I found myself giggling before even opening each picture. Odie should be marketed as an anti-depressant.

          Really? Is there an ad? I wouldn't mind a jenny to keep Mini Mo company when I take JD away to ride and show.

          • Woot on selling the trailer! And I am glad you have panels. Yukon does have two mini donks at Kim's house, and a pig, and a goat, and a cat, some dogs, and chickens, so I SUPPOSE he is being kept occupied

              That goat is the fattest goat ever !!

              I'd like to see the ad. Not that, um, I'm going to do anything about it.

              Ahem.

              • Peaceful valley donkey rescue out of OR is facilitating the placement. They are free with a home check. Ages from5-21. Jacks, geldings and jennys. There is info on their FB page but I can't figure out how to link it here on my ipad. Info states they are gentle and you can trim feet without haltering them. They are Jerusalem donks. They are located in Sequim wa.
                Aha! Think I figured it out https://www.facebook.com/permalink.p...81778971865997

                • Good thing they're as far from me as possible or I'd be having to explain to my husband where the extra donkey came from.

                            He is! I'll post pics in a bit, because right now I can't get off the couch. We got his stall built today and got him moved, and ran errands, we left at 9am and didn't get back til 530pm...oy.

                            • Need my Odie fix - finally put in my friend request, hope Odie accepts.
                              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.

                                I'm sure he will, he was pretty bushed after the move. Big trailer ride, then Nika being all weird and actually happy to see him and Rory of course was overjoyed.

                                It was actually the sweetest/saddest thing EVER . Rory didn't see him hop out of the trailer but Nika did, and it wasn't until Odie was in the paddock with DH leading him to the temp stall that he did. Rory did a little dance not sure which way to go, then went barreling out of the run as fast as his non-graceful self could go. Of course, then Nika got all mareish and possessive for whatever reason, but Rory was so happy. He wouldn't leave the temp stall until I went out in the dark and put him away.

                                DH said Rory had probably forgotten about Odie because it had been three months, and let's face it, Rory is NOT the sharpest crayon in the ole 64 pack. But if he forgot, he remembered immediately.

                                So here's the first video, not a lot of Odie, which the thread is about, but if you watch, about 40 seconds in Rory realizes who just showed up and does a happy Irish jig for a split second before running out. Of course it's right when I get all crappy with the video because I'm dealing with the gate, buuuuut... And you see my mare being her normal hateful self towards Rory.

                                And here's Rory snuffling on his Odie and you can see that he is so happy to have his bestie back.

                                http://youtu.be/6yOVGtMvn_k

                                And some pictures

                                Yep, this rig for the 31'' wonder.
                                Rory loving his buddy
                                And Odie saying, "who couldn't love this face??"

                                So his stall is bedded and he has water and hay and dinner, and he's home. I'm going to go out tomorrow and sneak him out of the paddock (or try to) and let him wander around the farm a little tomorrow and eat lots of treats. He was a little stressed about the trailer ride, which he doesn't like when he's 100 percent, so grass and movement are all excellent ideas .

                                  Well, depression has officially been lifted, and we have a happy Evil Burrito once again. He perhaps moved around too much today, I did not expect him to chase Rory and I to the arena. And he hung out there until we went back and followed us back to the barn.

                                          My truck has a canopy and spray in liner, and I keep saying we should build a ramp and let Odie ride up there .

                                          I know you're all surprised to read that this is where I found Rory when I showed up, and right back where he went after he was turned back out. Those two...my goodness. DH worked on what I've dubbed the Tent de Burro yesterday, adding a center pole to keep water from pooling.

                                          And while I had been concerned that Odie would be stressed out by tarp noises, this is obviously not the case . So DH had to work on that as well.

                                          I turned him loose to wander and graze, and then caught Rory to brush him, and lo and behold, apparently Odie wanted to come in with us and chill. He was happier out of the barn at the other facility if horses were in the crossties, so I guess he missed his buddy too.

                                          And he did NOT want to get put away when I was on my way back from the arena to the barn. DH is such a party pooper . DH had to drag him all the way in, and then drag him into the Tent de Burro. Poor Burrito.
