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!

                          5) What color are you?
                          I'm a handsome handsome bay (at least, that's what the mirror in the indoor tells me)
                          6) How old are you?
                          Thirteen
                          7) Who is your rider/owner?
                          The lady who makes funny noises when she gets on.
                          8) In what discipline do you participate?

                          My HUGE stride. She comments about it ALL the time. I get sick of hearing about it. And I'm finicky. She comments about that a lot too so it must mean she likes it.

                          I tend to think that new things are scary. Like flowerboxes. The green boxes in the arena. Chairs are going to eat me. I have a bit of a complex about such things.

                          Carrots. I don't like peppermints *yeuch*

                          I'm very very particular. I can afford to be because I'm so handsome.
                          15) What makes you happy?

                          Baths and spray bottles. Or having my left ear touched. Or flowers. Or dogs. Or chairs. Or funny green boxes. Or farm implements.

                          5) What color are you?
                          Bay.

                          7) Who is your rider/owner?
                          I'm owned by the one who calls me Stinky, but I have two kids leasing me right now. They are very nice (and easy to take advantage of)
                          8) In what discipline do you participate?
                          Hunters, sometimes jumpers, a little bit of grass eating

                          I think it's the fact that I'm so silly. She laughs a lot.
                          11) What is your greatest strength?
                          Making my owner laugh.
                          12) What areas do you need to work on?
                          Remembering that if I *just* do what she says, it will be much easier for me in the long run.
                          13) What is your favorite treat?
                          Red licorice.
                          14) Do you have any cute eccentricities or quirks? What are they?
                          Of course! I'm just cute! I give kisses. I want to come sit on my owner's couch but she won't let me.
                          15) What makes you happy?
                          Getting scratchies on the poll when I'm napping in my stall.

                          Dressage. Phooey. Flatwork is BOOOOORRRRRRRIIIIIINNNNNNNNG.

                            <span class="ev_code_BLUE">I like to go out in the pasture with my girlfriends.

                              Ride'Em: Penny does this too! She is the slowest eater in the world. She takes a small mouthful of pellett/flax, then as she slowly chews it, she nibbles/licks the edge of her bucket. Also does it when I put a ground-feed pan inside a tire (licks the rubber), or if the bucket is on a metal gte (licks the metal). Weird. She doesn't crib, ever. Just licks/nibbles as she chews. What a riot! I thought she was the only one with this weird habit.

                                1) What is your show name?

                                Bird on Ice. I was named that because my daddy is Watch the Bird and my mommy is Icey Review. But one of the people who works hard to feed me (I don't see him much, although my human mommy calls him her "DH") likes to drink a scotch called Famous Grouse. I guess people who really like it call it "The Bird," and DH likes it on the rocks, so that's the other meaning of Bird on Ice.

                                2) What is your barn name?
                                Little Bird Horse. Or Birdy. Or just Baby.

                                3) What is your sex?
                                I think I'm a boy horse, although my previous owner did something with my parts to make them lighter. But I look the same as all the other boy horses around her. I guess boy horses are called geldings?

                                4) What is your breed?
                                I am a Mighty Thoroughbred Hony. My mommies say that if I wind up being 14.3 forever, they're going to teach me to crouch.

                                5) What color are you?
                                I am almost black, except for some roaning on my flanks.

                                6) How old are you?
                                I just turned two.

                                7) Who is your rider/owner?
                                I have two mommies and a daddy. DH, as mentioned above, then Mommy Siobhan and Mommy Christina. They bought me out of an auction when no one else wanted me. I was really scared that day.

                                8) In what discipline do you participate?
                                Round-bale rolling, blanket mastication and peppermint eating. I also like standing up on my hind legs and playing Wild Stud Horse with Toad and Stanley. Puzzle doesn't like to play that game. He only likes to eat. I chew on his grazing muzzle when he lets me. Oh, and I like tail-eating, too.

                                9) Have you tried any other disciplines?
                                I've tried bucking, but it's not as much fun. I do like to nap in the chafe from the round bale. Mommy Siobhan calls this my "Nativity Scene Impersonation."

                                10) What does your rider/owner like best about you?
                                I am very sweet and quiet, and I love to nuzzle pockets for treats. I also stop and come to the gate or the stall door when I hear my name.

                                11) What is your greatest strength?
                                I look very cute, and I can squeeze into very small spaces. My mommies also say I have a lovely trot.

                                12) What areas do you need to work on?
                                Mommy Siobhan says I'm getting "nippy" about my treats. But they are so good!

                                13) What is your favorite treat?
                                Ooh, yummy peppermints! I loff them!

                                14) Do you have any cute eccentricities or quirks? What are they?
                                I like to watch my mommies work around the barn, and I follow them around. I usually find that they will stop what they are doing and scritch my neck or give me peppermints. I also like to put my nose right up to my human's mouth to smell her breath. You can see me doing that with Mommy Christina in my picture.

                                15) What makes you happy?
                                Peppermints! And seeing my mommies come out to feed. Mommies mean treats.

                                16) What do you not like?
                                Men. They usually have sharp things they want to stick in my neck. I HATE the sharp things. They scare me so much! And having my ears touched. My mommies say someone must have "eared" me. But I'm working on it. My mommies make me let them touch my poll and my ears before I get my meal. I let them because I know I can eat afterward.

                                Here's my picture!
                                Life would be infinitely better if pinatas suddenly appeared throughout the day.

                                    That's so cute! Reese isn't a terribly slow eater, he's just...really involved with his food, LOL! You absolutely cannot get his attention while he's eating, ever.
