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!

  • NEED HUGE, HUGE jingles for badly injured horse-VERY sad update

    Hey all I need a mountain of jingles for a morab we have here-Eddie. Eddie has always been a screwball and accident prone but this time it's realy serious. In the past he's nearly put an eye out, fractured his skull-just messing around. His owner lives out of state.

    He has damaged his neck and is exhibiting terrible ataxia and can't coordinate this body. Vet has been out, he's had IV DMSO, Banamine, Dex.

    We noticed it this AM and I managed to get him out of the pasture and when he went down, and me on top of him, I kept him down, administered Banamine and lightly sedated him until the vet arrived. When he was able to stay down for about 45 minutes-1 hour-that's how long it took for the vet to get here, he was able to stand up, walk himself into a stall, stood for the vet to do her thing. His back was not roached up, no ataxia really, almost like his old self.

    Now he's back to being very ataxic. I called the vet again and we are back to lightly sedating him to keep him down and quiet. We are tiptoeing in the barn so not to disturb him-he's a action kind of guy.

    I am worried sick as I love this little ADD horse.

    So I need all the jingles you can spare. The next 24-48 hours are really critical.

    He's a wonderful boy. He's only 6.

    **it's 10:00 PM and we just got back from delivering Eddie's body to Cornell Necropsy. His condition was deteriorating depite the efforts and it was decided the best thing was to euthanize him. This happened about 6:30 PM. Our local fire department came with a winch and helped us get him into our trailer.

    You try to disassociate yourself to these surreal events in your life. 24 hours ago he was a happy ADD horse. Oh, the stories about him from us would make you probably bust a gut from laughing. He as such a character. Tonight we only told good Eddie stories.

    My 15 year old daugther handled it SO well. She hopes to be a large animal vet someday and despite being able to witness some amazing things, I alway shield her from things such as this. She's still my baby afterall.

    Eddie is now up in heaven with are other beloved animals and my dad. Eddie loved being here and we so enjoyed having this funny, screwball of a young horse. We had the honor of having Eddie twice in for training-for extended periods of time too. He spent much of his young life here with us. I cannot even express just how much he will be missed.

    In honor of him for his owner, when our mare's foal, who is about to foal at any time, will be named Eskimo Dreams. See Eddie's name was Dreams in Eskimo.

    Thank you everyone who jingled so much. It has poured rain here since his death and my daughter said tonight, "It's raining so hard mom b/c God is crying for Eddie". I know I am crying loads of tears too.

    God Bless you Eddie. Thank you for being such a part of our lives. You will never be forgotten.

        Jean, I know you love and care for all the horses in your charge as if they are your own, so I know you're just worried sick. C'mon Eddie, stay down and be a good patient.

                  I'm so sorry. Are you sure it's an injury and not some kind of migrating parasite?

                  I only ask because one of my goats once picked up a protozoa and had symptoms of ataxia.

                  Good luck.

                      I don't normally post my jingle-thoughts, but I'll make an exception for a fellow Morab. Hang in there, Eddie!

                        A friend had a weanling injured that displayed those symptoms.
                        X rays showed a broken neck, the first vertebra.
                        They kept him very confined, eventually he could go out and this year they are riding him lightly without trouble, so there is hope your horse will come thru.

                        Those things just take good supportive care and your horse is getting that and oodles of time.

                        Best wishes for an uneventfull recovery.

                                    Jingles from Arkansas! Hope he turns the corner and heals quickly.

                                      Keep them coming.

                                      Thanks everyone! You all are going to make me cry. I just administered more light sedation. When he heard me enter the stall, he was down dozing, he stood up and was much more steady on his feet.

                                      I will be doing this round the clock to him so we work on keeping him quiet and hopefully he will mend.

                                      THANK YOU for the jingles. Keep them coming!! He still needs them.
                                      If he needs 6 months stall rest we are up to meet that challenge. I've done it before and I am committed to doing it again.

                                      SEPowell, they did take blood but given the nomanclature I think it's an unfortunate fooling around accident.

                                        Come on Eddie, you can do it. Keep up the good work caring for him....Keep us updated!
                                        Life is too short to argue with a mare! Just don't engage! It is much easier that way!

                                        Have fun, be safe, and let the mare think it is her idea!
