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!

  • Don't you know Odie is telling Rory all about how goofy humans are, putting that cast on a foot, then splint, shaving and washing it and just all such absurd stuff only humans could possibly make sense of.

          OK, DH trimmed Odie's feet (under light sedation) and he did great. OK, so he sat on DH a couple times, but whatever, he did great! And his leg looks great!

          Also, after he wandered the barn, got into trouble, and woke up enough, he got to wander out and walk out for some grass.

          Here's the walking! Don't mind the "sound of freedom" in the first part of the video, not sure what happened to the last half.

          • On Morning Joe (MSNBC on Jan 14) they have an alpaca and a donkey (I'm assuming a Mini), and it's hysterical watching Mika Brzenski try and convince the little guys to come on stage. The Alpaca seems OK with it, but she's having to try to convince the donkey to come on stage. I have no clue yet about why they have either live animal on stage.

              • I am so glad Odie is doing better.

                I am looking for a new license plate for my truck and immediately thought of Odie when I saw this one on ebay.

                  Hahaha cute.

                  Yeah, Odie is doing well. I'll try to upload some pics, he is NOT fan of his splint getting back on and having his leg handled, but once it's on, he is on fire . And he does put weight on it without the splint now.

                    OK, not really an update, but it is a funny little video clip from today. We let Odie be loose in the paddock with Rory for a sorta supervised "conjugal" visit ( ) today... I had to yell at Rory a couple times for being a little too happy and being a little crowdy, but Odie held his own, tried to bite him a couple times. Once Rory calmed down, he went into happy la-la land...this went on for a while before I stopped trying to get pictures that did not catch him with his tongue out, and went to video mode instead.

                    As for updates, Odie is walking on it in the stall . And objecting to the splint, of course.

                            Vet approved no splint anymore, at all whatsoever!

                            He's a happy burrito! After this tame little hand walk, while he was loose grazing, he decided to go running and bucking down half the length of the arena and back. And today's hand walk included hills, in the paddock, and I had my hands full with his jumping/bucking, piaffing, and trying to drag me around. Needless to say, he is feeling AWESOME!

                            And boy am I glad he's a mini!

                            • We have a mini donk too-Izzie. They are the absolute BEST. I love the little Odie updates on FB too. Makes our day.


                              Oh, and Izzie thinks he's cute.

                                    • So glad that Odie is back to normal. I think you need to keep the Tent de Burro, however. Just because.
                                      The truth is always in the middle.

                                        Well, he is staying IN tent de burro for a while longer, per vet. Plus, I don't want to reinjure anything, though I suppose turning him loose to graze without having a hand on him makes me sound tres hypocritical...

                                        But he's so much happier, and starting to be so much more evil again . He's started digging in the tent, which is shredding one of the tarps we had pulled into the stall and under the mats to keep the wind out. And when I had him tied in the arena while I worked Rory yesterday (because Rory wigged out last week...you don't like it, you get more of it until it's a non-issue), he dug a nice little hole there too. And he is braying as soon as my truck pulls in, to be let out. I don't think I'm special, I'm sure he brays for anyone pulling in .

                                        Vet said Monday that he didn't even want Odie's stall to be extended yet for another couple weeks, to be 12x24, but he's ultra conservative and I'm more about quality of life . So the tent stays a bit longer for sure.

                                          not really; it's a far cry from letting him out to roughhouse with rory.
