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!

    Aww jingles for your poor boy who, btw is seriously the cutest mini donk ever. I now want one.

      Aww! Odie! He looks to be in need of a good snuggle...

        OP, did your vet put the hardening vettec putty on the sole and about an inch up each side of the cast? That will keep it from cracking.

        And deep bed his stall with lots of shavings.


        ETA: My vet said any cracks and we'd have to do it all over, so he put the vettec hardening putty "stuff" on the sole and about an inch up each side of the cast. Then he said if any shavings got into the cast, we were going to have to start over also. So I kept the elastikon tape on at the top of the cast, and I kept Hattie in about a foot of shavings for 3 weeks. It took our vet about 10 minutes to get that sucker off with his electric power cast cutter, LOL. And the cast was clean and still white. I guess your vet used the Delta Lite casting tape? It's really good. ( Now the cast is being autographed by vets and staff at hospital, then later I'll have it bronzed. )


        • Original Poster

          C&C, he put it around the sole and up the sides, and around the leg to about, hmmm, an inch or so below where the elastikon (sp) ends, and padded underneath it as well. He gave me a lot of advice on protecting the cast, said I could get bicycle inner tube and cut little squares, wrap around the toe and tape on.

          As an aside, I have made him a Gorilla Tape convert. When we initially treated for abscess, he needed duct tape and I said "here, use my Gorilla Tape." And when he removed it two days later, he couldn't cut through it and was having to saw away with bandage scissors.

          I can't bed with shavings because the BO doesn't like shavings (fairly common up here). So I got pellets and am bedding with that, already soaked and broken down.

              What a sad picture! Hoping for a quick and full recovery.

                I'm so sorry to hear this! Jingling for a speedy recovery for the evil burrito!

                  Oh wait, I think it was equilox that the vet put on the outside of the cast on sole and on sides to keep it from cracking. Instead of vettec. I was just the assistant, so I need to look at my notes.

                  Anyhow, I hope he does well as a patient. Keeping them happy when on stall rest, and keeping the cast from getting cracked or from getting anything in it to irritate the skin are both difficult. Stump socks that are used for humans are good to use on dogs and horses under a cast.

                  it's equilox, not equinox! D*** auto correct!

                    Ran out today before work to give him his Equioxx, which I can tell you must be some seriously nasty tasting stuff. Odie objected mightily and then made funny faces and rubbed his lips and mouth on the ground.

                    But good news, everything looks the same and he had sawdust all over one side, so he's laying down. Still not walking on the cast, but he's resting it on the ground when he stands still.

                    He also came out and sampled the buffet .

                        He slays me! Sooo adorable. A mini donk is on my bucket list.

                          Oh my goodness that is the saddest and sweetest poor little Burrito I ever saw. Little Eyore- just tie a pink bow on his tail. I will be praying for him to be a good patient and deal with being laid up and heal well and fast. I'm so sorry.


                          • #73
                            Cutie!!! We have a mini donk at the barn with the same markings. Odie was clipped? I think that might make our guy look almost as cute!! (If I don't steal him first and sneak him home!!).

                              Oh my. He is so squishable! And that photo on the ground... Ack.

                              Good vibes for a quick recovery and no-issues cast! He looks like he's very well taken care of, and I just want to hug him.

                                Oh, good lord! You need to put a warning on that photo of Odie on the ground--I wanted to laugh and sniffle at the same time. Poor sweet baby. Jingles from my herd! Get well Odie, and keep us updated with more of those awesome photos, please.

                                  The picture of Odie on the ground is very sad indeed! I was glad to see the one of him back on his feet, trying out "the buffet". Jingles for all of you continue.

                                    Oh yes, Odie gets clipped regularly, otherwise he turns into a giant, fluffy Odie, which is cute but a management nightmare. So he gets clipped in the spring and again in late summer. Actually, this year he got clipped three times: body in the spring, then with medicinal assistance body and legs in the summer, and then I just clipped his body again not that long ago. Hence the clipper lines.... I wasn't aiming for looks, just aiming for comfy donkey in 75* heat.

                                          He is beyond cute. Holy mini donk! best wishes. I sense there is a children's book in this... Silly, playful, naughty donk gets hurt, wears a dumb, embarassing cast, tries to stay out of trouble and then heals to go play with his bestest friend, Rory again. His pics are priceless.
