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!

    My "full bred American Mutt" is wonderful! She goes with me everywhere and stays at the tack room while I'm at the ring. Never have quite figured out what she is - but I don't care! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img]

      You think people recognising your dog and not you is bad, all the grooms at my old barn called me Ishi because I was always yelling, "Ishi, come here, please!" So 1 started and then they all did it. Even the ones who didn't speak english well, just spoke to me in spanish calling me Ishi, and then my trainers, fellow barn members...
      But it's OK Ishi is a cool dog after all [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

        When my dog gets around horsey poop (or something else that smells yummy - usually dead [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]) she likes to roll around near and usually on it!

        Actually, believe it or not, I haven't bathed her in about 3 months! Eskies have weird dirt-repellent fur. If they get muddy, the mud crusts up on their fur, and falls right off. Good for keeping the dog clean - bad for keeping the carpet clean!! I'm amazed at how white she keeps herself. Best part is - no dog smell! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

            I will have to say my Bernese Mountain Dog "Big Boy" gets a lot of attention when he goes to the shoes. He is 110 lbs of lap dog and loves everyone and everything. As for being the best behaved show dog ... I doubt it but surely the most friendly and gorgeous!

              Okay well I have two - Cleo is a 5yr old lab/shepherd/corgi/pitbull/boxer/bloodhound/ wellokaywedon'tknow cross....
              and Isis [pronounced eye - sis] is a four yr old supposed-to-be-pitbull-but-we-think-she's-a-cross,
              and they love to go to shows but Cleo pulls on the leash the whole time, and people are scared of Isis so they often stay home.

                  They are wonderful doggy ambassadors. In the photo below the larger male is Angus and smaller female is Sydney (both altered). I look like Julius Cesaer walking around with one on either side. And they just turn into wiggling bundles of energy when people come over to say hello. Boxers really love people.

                  Another great horse show dog is the Boston terrier. They are boxer personalities in tiny little bodys. At our shows here in San Diego, Otis is the official start box dog mascot. (sorry no photos of Otis)

                        That's cute, I have an Angus and Shyloh, which is similar!

                        They used to go to shows with me, until I stopped showing. They also would go to the barn with me, but Angus loved to jump in the irrigation ditch. He then (coincidentally) came up with Autoimmune Thrombocytopenia. Ack, long story. I'll shut up now.

                        He is better though!

                          He can also wag his tail and growl on command...at the same time!!

                          He of course is a Golden Retriever!

                            I LOFF LOFF LOFF Bernese Mountain Dogs. They're absolutely BEAUTIFUL. I've always wanted one!! One day, when I move out of my little apartment with a little yard and into a place where a dog can run around, I'll get one of those big boys. I can see it now - huge black (and tan and white) hairy beast with little white fuzzball running around the yard. Do you have any pics of your boy? I'd love to see 'em [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                            p.s. Eskies were circus dogs at one point (no real useful purpose like hounds or hunting dogs!), and my eskie has excellent balance on 2 legs. She stands up on her hind legs to see what's on tables and counters (but doesn't put her paws on the table!) and walks around or does little bunny hops on 2 legs. That's her coolest trick [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                              My Janky dog! She's 100% Greyhound...straight off the racetrack, and the uber-show dog! My horse just adores her. He sees her coming and his ears prick up and he drags me over to her. It's too cute. She'll just stand there while he sniffs her and nuzzles her.

                                Years ago we had a Newfoundland who loved going to a horse show. All you had to do was hook up the trailer and he got excited. The great part was that all the kids loved him. He was like a big teddy bear. More often than not, little kids would run up to him and give him a hug and he would give them a lick on the face.

                                We now have an English Setter that loves going anywhere except to the Vet. She is more like a Springer Spaniel at shows. She spends more time in the air than on the ground.

                                  Hoodoo, Devo is simply the cutest dog I have ever seen! I love him. There is something about him that reminds me of my dog...only mine has fur!

                                  That BIG snout of his (very generous nose he's got there!) I so want to kiss it!

                                  Anyways, my dog would pee his pants in excitement if I took him to a horse show. Munsterlander Ludger is a farm dog.

                                    I had an English bulldog named Archie, who, while he was not a horse show dog (I had him before I started riding English, believe it or not), was the coolest dog of all time. I'll attach a shot of his sexy self.

                                        I think I have mis-spelled "Catahoula" but many moons ago I knew a fantastic LCBTH owned by a trainer who was really the uber-horse show dog. Respectful of horses, never underfoot, and those lovely blue eyes.

                                        My beloved Super Max Dog, who passed away last January, was a great horse show dog, a Dobie Rott cross. Except for the time I had to shell out $50 to get him out of the WEF slammer for getting caught in the "food court" area. Hey, what's the big deal, he was eating out of the dumpster, it's not like any people were doing that .... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                                        Big Jake the Dobe is much too full of himself as an energetic 3 year old to be a very good barn dog, so he stays home.
