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!

        Not that I would do it.... ....but that looks like the perfect invitation to buff your 'creative writing' skills!

        'My horse talks to me telepathically all the time, he has a real potty mouth too. He doesn't like me very much except when I feed him carrots. It's heart-breaking for me really, but I've learned to accept him for what he is. It would be wonderful if I won and the psychic could tell me how to get him to like me."

              Well, my horses talk to me all the time also and I don't care if I get in trouble for saying that.

              Of course our animals talk to us all the time, they just don't do it with spoken language and words as symbols, but a flick of a tail, a turn of an ear, the way they stand and the way I respond to let them know my answer is all it takes to communicate.

              All of us that take care of our animals, including horses, do talk to them.
              Grandma told me once that I was not just 1/2, but 99% horse.
              Maybe that is why I think it is normal to talk with them?

                  I am very surprized that an animal comunicator hasn't waltzed off with the prize by now. Maybe they just haven't heard of it yet - I know I'll keep an eye on that, it's bound to happen soon, now that the info is available!

                    I was going to post that link, but most people here who are into woo-woo like animal communicators always have "reasons" why those claiming such powers "don't need" to prove themselves..... so I didn't bother. LOL

                      Ted does talk to me all the time. Body language. Usually our conversations run like this:

                      "You can groom me there, but not there. I said THERE! NOT THERE!! Jeez. And don't step on my hay in the process. And get out of my way, I want some water. Okay, you can brush my tail. Don't stop. Keep going, I said don't stop!!! And don't mess with the face, I'm busy eating hay. Are we going out to graze now? What? What's with the saddle? WHAT???"

                      I can also read YOUR horse's conversations for a small fee. I am a 501(c)3 animal communicator, and all profits are invested back into the Treats for Ted Foundation.

                        Last night one of my horses was really communicating to me!

                        I was standing in the pasture and their food was on the other side of the fence waiting, soaking, lots of beet pulp and hay cubes. My neighbor came over to talk to me and they all stood behind me, like brave horses. After a minute of talking my pony said, "hey, feed me." Then he bit my jacket just a pinch, and I said stop it, this is my jacket. He did it again, and again, and again and I gave him a dirty look, tried to scare him but that didn't work. As long as I was talking to my neighbor he would nibble my jacket and I was afraid he'd put a hole in it. It's a tough Carhart but I don't want holes. So he stopped biting my jacket when the neighbor went away. Just like a kid. All 3 horses stood there looking at my neighbor and he just laughed at them and went back to his racehorses.

                        Now what do you think my horse was trying to tell me?

                          I meant that what she has to say would be questionable. I think after three months of me scrubbing her leg, she'd have rude things to say!

                              I don't have a phone in the barn, so they won't get ideas.

                                My sister is a would be animal communicator. She's quite good with animals, all sorts, they love her. And I do believe that they do communicate, but as others have said, with their body language. Anyone who is around an animal, dog, cat, horse, or whatever, would know. That being said, my sister once told someone who'd called her with a problem horse, to visual what they wanted the horse to do. She claims it works with her animals. I had an issue with that.

                                A woman at my barn told me she'd had an animal communicator, "who was used at all the BNT's in Wellington", read her horse. He's an OTTB who was used as a hunter bf she got him. So what did she learn? That he was content and remembered racing.

                                All of that being said, I do have one thing to report. I was "given" an errant school horse to straighten out. Now this horse had been an A circuit hunter and quite a horse in his day. But he'd gotten into the habit of dumping the students in a rather nasty way. He'd always been known for shying and bucking. Now, I can't say it wasn't a thought that occurred to me bc I already knew his background, but it just popped into my head one day that he had been really depressed by being abandoned by his former owner, and he needed to bond with someone. Of course, I also found he had a sore back, but I did take him under my wing, clipped him and groomed him and gave him vitamins and basic care and he loved it. He did come back to being a useful horse, and only dumps people once and a while now.

                                  One barn I was at had an intercom, the BO called to my wing asking for the groom "Lauriieee".
                                  My horse responded with a long neigh. He was clearly responding to the call.
                                  I was standing next to him, then went to the main office, and they were cracking up.
