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!

  • The jelly scrubber...love it...but....

    I can't keep it on my hand! What am I doing wrong? Its the greatest invention and I love it - so great for legs, and the softer side is awesome for faces! But it annoys the crap out of me because it keeps slipping off my hand unless I hook a finger through one of the little holes.

    Is there a brand out there thats good for smaller hands? I wear a 6 in gloves. Or smalls.

    They make it in a mini size that might work for you. I use the regular size (size 8 gloves) and it stays put pretty well.

      I wear a glove when I use it. That's what has helped me keep it on my hand.

        I do, too, come to think of it, since I wear gloves all the time at the barn. I've got small hands, too, so this is probably why I don't lose it too much.

          I sort of curl my fingers a bit so that it can't slide straight off, and that usually keeps it in place.


          • #6
            I also wish they'd re-engineer these just a tad; my horses adore them, but they are a bit awkward to use.


            • #7
              I've used two brands--and one is about 1/2" wider than the other. I can't use the wider one to save my life, but the other is no problem.


              • #8
                I got so frustrated trying to keep those things in my hand that I switched to just using the human exfoliating bath gloves.

                Trying to keep the other things in my hand aggravated my arthritis in my hands. With the bath gloves, I'm no longer stressing my joints to try and hold on to something.

                  Ok first, THANK YOU. I thought it would be a ridiculous thing to post; I thought - its me. But I'm so glad there are others out there who are affected by jelly-scrubber-slippy-itis.

                  Will try all the suggestions. And if it doesn't work I'll buy the little guy. I LOVE how well it works!

                    Did you guys see the new Jelly Scrubber that's shaped like a glove?! I don't remember where I saw it, but I'm pretty sure someone showed it to me a week or so ago. Then again, I've had a terrible migraine all weekend so it's perfectly possible that I just hallucinated it.

                      What's a jelly scrubber?

                        This is what I do, or I hold it curled in my hand.

                        https://www.smartpakequine.com/mobile/product/607 This is what I have. My horses love them.

                          This is my new favorite jelly scrubber. I also have tiny hands and I haven't dropped it at all!
                          Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

                          You call it boxed wine. I call it carboardeaux.

                            I was using mine this weekend and thought of this thread. I don't have small hands, so that's a start. But, I put it on my hand, and put my fingers all the way through the holes at the top. So, the "meat" of the scrubber is in the palm of my hand. It seems to stay on quite nicely that way.

                              So glad you posted this question OP - I just discovered these things at my temporary boarding barn, and love it! I want to buy one to have when I bring my girls home next week - but I have tiny hands so I'd like to find a mini version -

                              I did a search for mini jelly scrubbers but only came up with regular sized ones - have to get back to work now - if anyone can find & post a link where I can buy a mini one, I'll be very happy when I have time to check back on COTH!

                                Oh, well, clearly you're not thoroughly indoctrinated to COTH yet, because finger pointing and drawing conclusions are the cornerstones of this great online community. (Tidy Rabbit)

                                  Too bad it's only kids sized (although I could probably make it work because I have midget hands).
