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!

            I went and saw this with my husband last night. Only a few problems, one being the length of the flick. Having an 8 and 3 week old fetus lying on my bladder made it necessary to leave a few times, which was frustrating.
            Also, hubby and I both thought the ending was a little weak.
            I did notice the neck rope on Shadowfax, and yes, I cried when he first appeared. Such a stunning boy! I also noticed Gandalf gripping a pommel hidden under his robes a couple of times.
            I loved the full out gallops, though. And the Riders of Rohan were just plain COOL! Anyone else notice that Eomer's helmet's nose brace was a horse's head? I loved the banners, too - I want one! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
            I will definitely buy it on DVD when it comes out. And how cool is it that Viggo bought Brego? That's so great! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                    Easily 9 times in its entirety, as well as 75% of it (counting in my head now) 15 or 20 times, I STILL get all stupid when Shadowfax comes galloping up the hill. I'm a fool, but dang it that horse looks and moves like my SuperToga. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] I've seen it so many times now I'm to the point of finding all of the problems in it, and the more I see them, the more they irk me. Granted, I'm no huge LOTR fan (though I do love me some Legolas - have the poster of him on my wall and everything) so excuse the butchering of names, but if you go see it again, look for:

                    When Aragorn is recounting the night's events at the Burning Pile of Dead Things, it flashes back to Merry (Pippin?) screaming as he's about to be squished - his hands are untied, then bound in the next scene. Also, throughout this whole part - who else gets a Princess Bride flashback? (I am SUCH a loser.)

                    The horse who makes out with Aragorn on the beach has two black front feet, then, once he sees the approaching army on the hill, the horse magically gains a front sock. And, his halter goes from having a lead, to a lead tied on the front rings, to some weird bit tied onto the halter itself. Even so, I love the part on the beach - I like to pretend that SuperToga would come save me like that (which he wouldn't, but a girl can dream.. speaking of dreaming.. mmm.. elves...).

                    When the three are surrounded by the banished riders, and the blond man is telling them about the Orc-B-Que, I love that one horse makes a nasty shark face to the horse next to him. Later, when Aragorn is kneeling down in front of the Steaming Pile of Orc, look at Legolas in the background. It's a lot funnier if you imagine the on set directions - "Look sad.. " then, he looks up and around like he's seeing if he's done yet, and goes right back to "Keep looking sad."

                    I've already seen this movie way to many times, but it keeps entertaining me, so hey, what's another dozen or so viewings? I always have to stop and watch the horse parts, esp. when they come galloping down the hill with Shadowfax in front, and jump into the light. Ah.. good movie.. My Tolkien loving brother hated it, but I thought it was nice. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                    (and now, before the die-hard LOTR fans beat down my door to punish me for my wrongs, I will stop butchering both the names and the storylines and return to my normally vapid existance [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] )

                          LOL!! I went to see it once, of my own free will, on the Tuesday before it came out (an employee sneak preview). Then, I went into the next showing and saw the last hour or two again. I run the projectors at a movie theater, and we have an 11pm showing of it, so there's nothing left to do but sit upstairs and watch LOTR over.. and over.. and over.. I've seen that and Two Weeks Notice more than any sane person should, now.. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                          But, sadly enough, a friend and I are going to go see it again next weekend.. We're totally insane [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                              And am officially smitten with all things Middle Earth. I read the books so long ago that I've forgotten nearly everything - the movies have rekindled my desire to go read them again. I'm going to agree with those who've mentioned that the horse scenes are visually stunning - Shadowfax cantering up the hill made me sob like an infant, and the cavalry, led by Gandalf and Shadowfax, charging into the orc melee nearly made me wet myself. I've never seen a movie that made every hair on my body stand up so darned often.

                              I think that Gimli is hilarious, and I just wanted to squeeze the adorable Merry and Pippin to my bosom. I didn't pick up on much sexiness between Frodo and Sam (who is the sweetest, truest man-servant ever), but I did see a few lingering gazes and almost-spooning action that hinted in that direction [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]. Aragorn just smolders, but I must say I am among the hordes desperately lusting after Legolas. This is interesting, because while I think that Orlando Bloom is cute enough, it's his elf self I find absolutely delicious - what is it about that quiet, enigmatic, graceful, slender, arrow-shooting blondness that is so darned HOT?

                              I'm rooting for a Men of Middle Earth Calendar or something. With a limit, that is - I have no desire to see Gimli or Gandalf in mesh briefs [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img].

                              But for now, I'm off to sleep.

                              Cheers,

                                I second that... mmm..... Aragorn and Boromir and Legolas in skivvies or on nice horses...

                                It was kind of funny, I was thinking of picking up a movie poster yesterday while I was shopping, and so I looked in the bins. All the poster bins were CHOCK full EXCEPT for the one of Legolas, which was totally sold out. LOL.

                                  Ive got 2 (possibly 3) more dates set up to see the movie. Im obsessed. Which is kind of strange because I never saw the first one in theatre (BAD ME!) My friend had to sit me down, bind my hands and legs together and stuff my face with pizza to get me to watch the first one. However, it didnt take long (oh...5, maybe 6 minutes) before I demanded she untie me and let me glue myself to her TV screen.

                                  And thanks to SupaGoo, my 3 year old baby green hunter now has a show name!!! "HASUFEL" (He's the gorgeous chestnut Aragorn rode, who just happens to look identical to my boy). My best friends horse is "Rivendell" (named before the movie came out) Are we not the worlds biggest geeks?

                                    Just because as we were coming home yesterday from our 3rd viewing, I said I wanted to be an elf - so I could do that cool vault onto the horse.

                                    And, I'm already planning on having my next sword (we are stage fighters in a theatre combat troupe) based on Theoden's sword - with the horse heads on the hilt. How cool is that?

                                    We've already got a "date" for the next viewing. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                                    Oh - Delighted, Pippin's hands are still tied when he's screaming, look at the way he's holding them. I thought the same thing you did, but finally saw the rope on this, our THIRD viewing.

                                    No trees were killed in the sending of this message. However, a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

                                      They probably made them by hand. In the FOTR DVD the director said that he wanted ALL the "things" in the movie to be made by hand for the movie. That includes, for example, every cup and plate at Bilbo's birthday, every sword and piece of armor, etc. He didn't want anyone to ever look at a prop and think "hey I can get that at Target!"

                                      So, the bridles were probably designed and made by a crack team of leather workers at WETA Workshop, Wellington, NZ.

                                        The other day, Mr. Cloud accused me of wanting to "do" the whole Fellowship. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] I admit that I think most of them are hot and the ones that aren't hot in the conventional sense are pretty darn cute.

                                        Add me to the hordes who love Viggo and Orlando. I am also especially fond of Elijah Wood, Dominic Monaghan (Merry) and Billy Boyd (Pippin...his accent makes me melt!!). Even though Ian McKellen is probably old enough to be my grandfather, I think he's really sexy. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] The actor who plays Gimli is actually a large man. I think he's somewhere around 5'10" and he's very thick-framed and solid. You'd never know it by watching Gimli in the movies!

                                          In my last minute christmas shopping yesterday I almost bought a replica of Aragorn's sword at the Chesapeake Knife Company. It was really cool. LOL
