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!

  • Duffy - just curious if your vet mentioned healing time if it's a deep bone bruise. I'm curious because I am dealing iwth a suspected deep bone bruise right now and it doesn't seem to be getting any better. Will probably go in for a bone scan soon. They told me if she wasn't better in 4-6 weeks to come back for more x-rays and a bone scan.

    I feel for you! Hope Eloquent gets better soon!

    So, jingles for Wonser (any update?) and Eloquent! And Fancy Flair!


    • If it's a bone contusion/bruise, we're talking 8-12 weeks.

      The positive side is that I was planning on giving him at least a couple of months of "down time" anyway before getting him into "hunter" training. I just hate that he's hurting and have to admit that the extra care complicates my life these days.

      • Thanks - that was kind of what I was thinking - almost 3 months. *sigh*

        I do know about the extra care and its complications. At least my mare is in my backyard.

        Good luck and we will hope it's NOT a bone bruise and that he is sound again soon!


        • Duffy, I'm so sorry to hear about Eloquent. I suppose we can commiserate on our poor pony's knees.

          I haven't been wrapping Abe's knee. I wonder if I should have been. I will definitely ask my vet when she comes out today.

          Best of luck for a speedy recovery.
          I would like to think I will die an heroic death...

          But it's more likely I'll trip over my dog and choke on a spoonful of frosting.


          • everybody wonser went to surgery this morning. they found a very large piece of leadrope and bailing twine lodged in his small colon. it looks to have been there a least a year maybe more. this would have happened to him where ever he would have gone.the mass was a big as both of my hands together, and it was calicfied(sp?). thanks you all for your prayers and jingles. i have no idea hoew to pay for this,but i guess i need to go and look for another job. i was not going to let him die, he is such a cool horse and has been so wonderful about this whole ordeal. never got mean or nasty the whole time he was in so much pain. please keep him in your prayers that he comes out of this ok.he is in the recovery stall now. thanks again

            ride it like you stole it! "ralph hill"


            • jingling frantically for wonser. To think he ran with this!
              "Sometimes you just have to shut up and color."


              • My thoughts exactly, ponygirl! I am so glad he is not going to be suffereing from that anymore. WOW!!!! Jingles for a speedy recovery!


                • maxx- Hoping he feels better..

                  Sophab- I know the trainer and horse very well, the trainer's groom is currently taking care of my horses. We've been in teh same shedrow all year. I was on the phone with the trainer all day Monday pushing him to get it taken care of for your friend.

                  Duffy- Is there anything you need me to do?

                  • Jingling for Wonser! I've followed these exracers sagas from the beginning and now want one of my own. I'll have to settle for caring for Horseless in Georgia's for a couple of days till she gets her barn finished. They should be here this afternoon!


                    • Maxx something good will come of this....
                      Thank Goodness he is ok..poor guy!


                      • Oooh. Poor Maxx and Poor Wonser. I'm so sad to hear about the injuries/surgeries on these babies and so happy to hear they are so loved by their new owners.

                        To echo another thread...I really wish we had a CANTER affiliate in CA!

                          • OMG is right! Poor thing!!!

                            Doublete, thanks for your call last evening. I got in too late to return it and hadn't heard from the vet at that point anyway. No, you don't need to do anything as yet. If he's not a LOT better in the very near future, we'll know that it wasn't just superficial.

                            And, as I said in my previous post, I was planning on giving him some R&R/re-group time anyway. If he takes a turn for the worse, I'll let you know and maybe it will call for a powwow of sorts. I love him! It may just be that he'll end up more of a rescue.

                            • Poor Wonser!! I'm jingling for both of you!!!

                              DreamInColor - Hey there!! Glad ya'll will be taking care of my canter cuties for while we finish getting our place ready!!! You have a PM!


                              • Duffy- Ok, just checking. Glad to hear he's nudged his way into your heart anyways. *If* that happens we'll figure something out, but here's hoping all is well.

                                Max- Poor guy.. It's amazing what these horses do for people (him running with that in his poor tummy).

                                • Well, Quentin's leg may still be sore, buy BOY is he feeling better! I brought him out for some grass and he was quite the bright-eyed and bushy-tailed fella when walking out of the barn. But, as soon as we hit the grass, he was all business - eating like there was no tomorrow, other than shaking his head every now and then from a fly. He didn't mind Pepper romping around close by either.

                                  I swear he even is starting to get a little bloom to his coat.

                                    • I am so sorry to hear of the troubles that have befallen several of these beauties. My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved. It is heartwarming to know that these horses have gone to such wonderful homes where they are getting the best love and care they can get.
                                      DKL could you email me. I had a problem with my email and lost all my contacts.

                                      • Doublete, thank you.
                                        Jill is home and happy. You know she shares a common grandsire with Snickers and it is almost uncanny how alike they look. We'll definitely keep everyone updated over the winter and whip out the "aren't they fat shiny and gorgeous" pictures in the spring.
                                        Still jingling for everyone with troubles.
                                        You know, I have a ton of extra stuff laying around. Maybe we could all do a little fall tack room cleaning and set up an "auction" to help these wonderful people and their new babies out?


                                        • Welll.....Finally my Canter Cuties Penalty Declined and Count Quillo are here!!! They had quite a long ride to Georgia as the drivers truck was having major mechanical problems. But they are saft and sound in their stalls muching hay when I left to come to work. First thing both of them did was roll in the nice big stalls full of shavings!!

                                          I tried to take some pics - but it really does help to have the card in the digital camera! I will take some pictures tomorrow and get them posted.

                                          Now I get to change my COTH name and come up with some new names for my guys!!!
