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.

          Jingles for you guys!!!!

          There were three mini donks at the last barn I was at. TOUGH little critters!


          • #45
            They are tough little critters. Don't underestimate them. Jingling for the evil burrito.

            Long story, but my mini donk got hit by a car, tossed through the air, and came out unfazed, mostly. I wasn't living in the area at the time, but the bystander accounts were pretty incredible.

              Well crap, Jenners. Not what I expected to read on this update. Mad jingles for all of the critters and TheJenners too!

                As for feeding him, Mo is a bit bigger than he is and she gets 4-5# total of Timothy or other stem my grass hay a day. No alfalfa as she's fat enough.

                  I must have made the worst facial expression when I read the updated title because my coworkers thought someone in my family had died

                  We should design an Evil Burrito t-shirt and wear them for good vibes. If everyone thinks it's a good idea, I can try putting someting together.

                    Jingling madly from Kentucky!

                    I knew a therapy horse who had a similar injury and after a few months of stall rest and casts, she was completely fine. She continued to work for another decade and only retired when she started to get sour and needed a change of scenery.


                    • #50
                      Jingles! It sounds positive, but I know it doesn't exactly feel that way right now. Hang in there!

                        Adding more KY jingles to the pile!

                        Odie is tough though and he has the best parents, so I'm sure he'll be just fine!

                          I'm so sorry! Sending healing vibes and jingles for Odie and his family. Donkey's are tough critters. I have to keep Hank confined for most of every day because if I don't he has laminitis flare ups. (Donkeys aren't made for the lush grass we've been getting in the South East) I give him one flake of hay in the morning and a handful of what ever the other horses are eating....currently TC senior. The hay lasts him all day. He gets another handful of feed PM and a little bit of hay to last him til morning....he stays fat.

                            I'm so sorry. You never think anything like that could happen to those tough little donkeys. I always tell everyone that Vinny is my only maintenance-free pet. Vinny says, "hang in there, Odie!"

                              Buy some soft ride boots!

                              As long as it is not a compound fracture, and "just" a crack in the bone, prognosis is good. Casts are great. As long as they don't rub! (My mare just had a cast on her hoof and ankle for 3 weeks, due to snake bite and cellulitis, and she didn't get a rub until day # 21 when vet cane out hours later to remove the cast. so she was sound on her cast for 20 days straight.)

                              You should buy the soft ride boots for your donkey. They help keep the weight change to the other hoof from causing laminitis in the other hoof.
                              Call the people at soft-ride.com and ask for advice. They are great!

                              Hope all goes well and that the only thing you have to worry about is arthritis when the donkey gets older.

                                Poor Odie! I hope his recovery goes well. Definitely try not to over feed as it can be easy with the little ones. Could his pellets go in a toy of some sort to keep him busy? Unless it makes him move around too much? You could just use a plastic jug with pellets in it to nose around or there are all types of stall toys. Long as the vet thinks it is okay, and not too much moving around.

                                Get well, Odie!

                                  Jingle jingle jingle for Odie. Thinking good thoughts for his naughty self.

                                    Thanks everyone!! My poor Odie.

                                    He's only getting a double handful, I doubt it's 100 pellets total. And really it's just because I worry about ulcers and colic and everything else. And he wasn't eating their hay very much, just sorta dragging it around. Didn't help that he pulled it over to where he wanted to stand, then peed and the pee ran under the hay. DH's BO doesn't like bedding, so there wasn't any, but he's bedded in pelleted bedding now which will be easier to clean. And we got a tub for his hay to go in.

                                    I going to run to my barn today and get his ball, I don't think he's up for running around with it but it might give him something to chew on.

                                      Also, I present to you all the most pitiful Evil Burrito picture ever.

                                      He was waking up from getting his cast put on, and had the saddest little Eeyore face ever.

                                          oh the poor little guy (and you too - it must be so stressful)! I hope he gets better quick.
