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!

    If I remember right... the roads out to kamloops have the deicers under the roadway. So once they have a chance to get everything cleared they may reopen the roads. I hope that everything works out soon, and here are jingles from Texas!

    If wishes were horses... I would be sooooooo happy!!

      I'm on pins and needles waiting for this horse to get home! I've been following the saga from the start, and just want to say that everyone involved (except the thief, of course) is going to heaven.

                Google "bc highway conditions" There are several sites. One has a webcam of Hwy 5&gt;Nice view of trucks stuck. Clearwarer is Hwy 5 (aka Yellowhead Hwy) north of Kamloops.

                    Hey knike! I am so glad you found the BB, you'll soon be addicted like the rest of us! Just a quick update for all the followers:

                    Calvin has a ride down to Dinah-do's this week with a commercial hauler (brave fellah-weather may be better, may not, but they feel very confident). I will get the paper work and hustle up I-5 and pick him up. I have stalls on order for my new place, the fencing is going in as we can find time (I am so tired of pounding posts), and the digital camera is ready to go.

                    I have contacted the publisher of Flying Changes and we are working on an article for a future issue about this great adventure. ( I always wanted to be an author, hee hee). She has an on-line version, too, so I let everyone know when it is published. I will get photos of my little buddy-bean when I get to BC. Thanks so much for all the good wishes, they've certainly made the journey easier.

                    Learn from my mistake. Get a brand inspection card and photos of your horse--just in case you lose your friend!

                                I've missed the origina thread of this story...Is it still up? How to find it?
                                From what I';ve read though it seems a miracle happened if you found your horse that might have been stolen. Good Luck on the final leg of his journey and will be looking for the ending of the story.

                                  Birdsong, the original post started somewhere around the beginning of October. Make yourself a cup of tea and read it thru. It is incredible. Now the poor guy is in a snowstorm! Talk about testing the mettle of Calvincrowe!

                                        I've been lurking through all CC's troubles. I always wished there was something I could do to help (like all of us!). What an inspiring story. I can't wait to get to the "They lived happily ever after." part

                                        I'll be away from the BB till Sunday, and just wanted to send all my best wishes to CC as she travels to get her boy! I hope everything goes well for ya'll. Please tell everyone who's helped how much we think of them - heroes all!

                                          Well Dinah-do just emailed me and Calvin arrived in Aldergrove (right across the border from WA) after an all night drive from Clearwater. He is eating well and seems fine. I am now trying to find out what box was checked on the health certificate, so I know if I have to have the vet see him (permanent export) or no (temporary visit). Since he is mine, I am hoping they (the good folks who were there for his vet appointment) made sure it was a travel permit type. If I have to see the vet, then I won't be able to get him before TG, because the vet is only available business hours. Hopefully, it will be simple and I can get him this weekend! My barn is not ready, but my sister-in-law will welcome him back. I have his beet pulp bucket ready, his Rambo out of storage, and the welcoming party in place. Keep up the karmic flow!
