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 think that even though WOnka may have the funds pledged to her she has not been adopted yet so she is still listed as available. It is always better if they have a full adopter rather than going to foster care. Or using up money that might go towards another horse.

    The address for paypal is on the main page. hmmmm http://www.columbiabasinequinerescue.org
    I think it is CBERpaypal at uh, something! To earmark it as a donation for a certain horse to lower the price put the horses name in the subject. You can say whether to return it or move to the general fund or another horse if that horse has been outright adopted. Since the general pull/medical fund is always stressed donations are always welcome there.

    To chip in for a group adoption post on the group adoption thread, if no adopter shows up before the truck there will be a call to send in pledges (which means you will have to watch the threads). But they wait until there is no other option before resorting to group adoption.

    I would love to have either Ace or Sander. They certainly were mellow stallions, they should be super geldings! And so pretty too!

        We need help with this group BIG TIME! There are just so many on the feedlot now. And there are some very nice prospects! And Babies! Please, please take a look! I hate to beg - but we need to move a mountain here! And to those on the E-Coast, there is already one in quarantine who will be coming over in the near future. Please, don't let that stop you from adopting! The horse of your dreams could be hitching a ride with Matisse! For the adoption fee and cost of transportation - you could have a wonderful horse - without stressing out the pocket book.

          It's frightening to see so many nice horses at such risk. I am hoping and praying that the miracle workers supporting CBER can do their stuff again, but I'm so afraid we could lose a few of these...

            Matisse will be coming home with in the next few months...she is at a super farm in Washington right now, in quarantine for the next 3 weeks or so, then will be boarded at the same farm until I secure her ride. I can tell you that the more horses that come east, the cheaper the shipping.

            Interim board is very reasonable !!

            Don't be afraid to look !!!

              We do need that "Huff Puff" Train going to the East from the West! Then, I'd take Wonka!

              Where do those horses come from??? I'm sure that there are alot of horses in feed lots where you live.
              Will get a dream horse!

                Wow, I like Dynasty and Shadow a lot. Arnie looks absolutely wonderful, too. Just bumping up.

                  Yes, I am only paying $35 a week for quarantine pasture board up there, and that's WITH grain and extra vitamins! It is very cheap to have a horse sit up there and veg until you can arrange transport.

                    Take a look at a couple of those draft cross mares--the blue roan mare is

                      Dynasty is lovely:

                      Shadow is too:

                      And good news-there will be a volunteer at the feedlot tomorrow riding and assessing as many as possible U/S! Pictures will be taken so please check for the updates.

                        I think I saw the FLO is trying to organise a shipment of horses SOON? Time running out for these horses...

                          Pity bump. Time is running out, the lot is full and the truck is coming. There just aren't enough people in CBER with enough money and space to save them all. There are MANY lovely prospects on there for all types of disciplines or just as pets. http://www.columbiabasinequinerescue...lothorses.html

                            Time for a bump for these horses who need homes!!!! There are a couple of Morgan geldings out there for someone who loves Morgans! And a grey Warmblood type with some type of a brand on his left shoulder( looks like a pine tree? the pic wasn't clear to me...) Hey if you have any cash and would like to help these horses, step up!!! Homes too!! These truly look like some worthwhile creatures not deserving of becoming someone's dinner!!!

                              Another small donation

                              Sent a small donation, hope it will help one more horse off the lot. My heart just breaks to see all these horses.

                                BUMP BUMP BUMP! Oh, if only we had the room. All of these beautiful sweethearts!!

                                  ACK! There are MORE!

                                  I think Wonka finally is pending. But she does have a group adoption if that falls through but would still need a home.

                                      I see Dynasty has a forever home!!! Yay!!!! Now, just for the rest of them, hoping someone out there has a spare bit of cash they would be willing to contribute to saving these poor horse from a fate they don't deserve. Shameless bump!!!

                                          Julia is no longer available for adoption. Per her owner's request, she will be sent to slaughter.
                                          This nearly broke my heart when I saw it, she looks like such a sweet mare. Anyone know why the owners requested to have her sent to slaughter?
