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!

      Wow do you post on any TWH boards? Mallow ought to be easy to place. And the bay filly that is trotting is interesting....


      • Original Poster

        Isn't she a cutie? I don't post on any TWH boards, if anybody does please post these guys. I don't even know what TWH boards are out there now. I really like the Paint stallion and the App ex-stallion. Shame their owners did this to them.

          There are some LOVELY horses. There's a link to the site where you can see all their updates here;
          Basically if on their thread, it doesn't say they are safe, then they aren't. The Paint stallion is really gorgeous and his newly gelded companion, the appy, Sanders, just looks so low. He's got an injury that could use some attention.
          So sorry to hear that some of the horses have been given up by an elderly owner who has cancer, on the basis that the organisation should be able to house them. These are some sweet horses that have been well cared for and handled. They won't have major hang-ups, please consider one if you're in the market!

            Mimsie and Mumsie are so sweet looking. I hope someone can help them out.

              I LOVE Divot! What a cutie!


              • #8
                It was posted that Divot is 16 hands and he has that big trot as you can see. He needs an experienced person to bring him along - I see a lot of potential there.

                Sander, the Appaloosa, is my favorite...I really hope someone gets him. He is extremely sweet and mellow-acting...even if he's not broke I don't think he will be hard to break. He would be an adorable western pleasure horse.

                  Wonka is still at the lot!

                  I thought that Wonka had a potential adopter working on adopting her - I was told of that last week. Now, she is still at the lot. Why is she not adoptable? Drafties, please adopt her for me.........

                    Oh I love that Birdie - she's a fine looking mare. If I only had the room she'd be here.

                    I also like Sander - could be a nice husband horse in the making.

                    Mumsi and Mimsi are just too cute - looks like Mimsi may be a true black - couldn't detect any brown around her muzzle.

                    My guess is that Divot will really relax and calm down once in a 'home' environment - and oh my goodness he looks quite a bit like my mare!

                    What a cutie that Short Stop is - how sweet is that face?

                    Putter is the stuff that little girls dream of - a snowy white horse with big dark kind eyes.

                    I think Mallow lost her horn - she reminds me of a fairytale unicorn

                    Gleed looks like she'd be a great gymkhana or low level eventer

                    With a little care and love All-Star looks like he'll certainly live up to his name.

                      Please remember everyone, they lost 2 sound, shy 2 year old fillies to slaughter just a couple of weeks back. There's no guarantee they can save these horses. Please please please mention the horses to your friends, your associates, anybody. Spread the word if you can do nothing else. Consider pledging to group adoption threads. Anything.

                      Group adoptions that are ongoing can be found here. http://cberheadqrters.proboards103.c...x.cgi?board=ad
                      I see Sander has one!

                        I just emailed Heidi on the status of Wonka. I am even more confused than before. The second board that Declaring directed us to show that a group has enough money to bail her out but I do not see anything being done.

                          I'm confused too- maybe they have her bail money but no one to take her? If there was a serious adoption enquiry they have to give that priority..?

                            Group adoptions are never finalized until it is obvious that (a) the truck is coming (b) no one is going to adopt the horse outright.

                            So if a group adoption thread has (a) all the funds in place and (b) an approved adopter to physically take custody of the horse, then the horse should be safe. But outright adoption is always preferred and I can understand why. It is a bit of a legal and financial can of worms to have 20 people pitch in for a horse and then it goes to 1.

                            Right now, no word on when the truck is coming next. Usually we get 24-48 hours notice.

                              Ohhh I see. Thanks Catknsn.

                              As I am alone here at work and no one is likely to call in until 8am (it's 7:10 over here right now), I figured I'd bring over some updates for everyone, from the CBER site, linked above.

                              Poor Gleed. Friends were shipped away. She's sick. And still not found a home.

                              Ace the stallion is shortly to become a gelding! And his price won't be raised much for that- a sponsor has sorted this. He's a real stunner.

                              Mallow has had a lot of enquiries it seems. Not so much interest in Mimsie or Mumsie at present. Nor is there a report of interest on the lovely young horse Short stop. No updates (official) for Sander, Divot, Birdie, Putter or Wonka.

                              I'm sure options will be being discussed in the accompanying discussion board, but that's how things stand in the official section.

                                Gleed has been adopted. Sometimes it's not posted to every thread about the horse but she is safe.

                                I'd really like to see someone rescue Sander. We have about 1/2 the money raised if he must go with a group adoption, but I think he's well worth adopting outright...he is cheap and good looking and very sweet and people oriented from what the volunteers say. If someone wants a western/trail type prospect, I think he's quite a bargain. And he may even be broke...we don't know.

                                    Is there a PayPal address

                                    Can I paypal them a bit of cash? Do they have an account? I am in MD, and am so not ready to be a horse owner, but god knows everytime I look at the feedlot horses, it just kills me. So I divide up my impulse donations between them and various OTTB hardluck cases, and try to sleep at night....

                                      What do you know about All Star? What area did he come from? I'm convinced I know him. If it's the horse I'm thinking of, he had a kick indent on his neck (can't remember what side), comes to the name of Plattinum. He was bought in IL for a 12 yr. old girl in 98 and she did hunters and mini events with him. She then moved to FL and last I heard sold him because other sports and boys got in the way. Very nice jumper! He would be about 14-17 now. He sure looks like the same horse. I haven't seen him since 2000 though.

                                        Still, no new updates on Wonka.... I emailed Heidi and have not heard back from her regarding Wonka. Many COTHers love having such a horse like Wonka - I do not see anyone jumping up to bring Wonka home. I'll start a new thread regarding Wonka.
