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!

    Fessy's Mom, just wanted to say, like many others here I know what you're going through and it can be very stressful! I second LH's recommendation (and to answer your question, reserpine is a different drug). From my experience, if he's dozing in the sun after just a day in his new place, he's not going to turn out like your mare that never settled. I know you have the added factor of injury to take into account, which makes it tougher, but I have had a number of OTTBs that didn't settle for at least a few days and then went on to be happy, easygoing horses as soon as they got used to their new surroundings. Best wishes for the two of you, you're doing a great thing!

      Hi, I'm new to this forum but have been volunteering for CANTER for a while (in western Mass. mostly). Anyway, yesterday we took on two CANTER horses for foster care, the stallion No Time Soon and a chestnut gelding Leader's Choice (don't know if this is spelled right because it doesn't come up on DelMar pedigree query). I had called a barn not too far from the track and they said they had room for two. It's a place I boarded at quite a few years ago but now it's self-care board only. "Soony" settled in fine but Choice did not look right. He was all tucked up and making some colicky gestures and there were almost no gut sounds. A woman was there who rents most of the stalls and at first she wasn't too happy to learn we were there because the owners never told her. But you know what! She stayed there with me til after 9:00PM making sure he was going to be okay. I live 45 minutes away (but my work is only 10 minutes away, so I can get there easily during the day)so I hadn't eaten much because of being at the track all day. This lady who didn't know me from a hole in the wall (or whatever) went home to her place and brought back a picnic with hot homemade soup and coffee and tea and cookies. She helped me give Choice some Mylanta and also had some Banamine. Instead of a rain dance we did the please poop dance. I know this is long winded but it's just an example of how these horses bring out the best in people. She did what she did because of the horses and the fact that they only have us to see to their health and welfare. Choice was much better today and he is a total sweetheart and very handsome. Pics will be done soon and he's available for adoption thru CANTER. Soony is also very nice but my friend is his buddy and I'm Choice's buddy. It was really nice to see everyone at the track and to read about all the others who are supporting CANTER.

        Thank you to Tuckaway for the update and I must say - Tuckaway is one of the folks who deserves a big round of applause. She, much like the nice lady who helped her last night, brought desperately needed goodies like sandwiches, water, and coffee to the other CANTER NE volunteers yesterday. She also made all of the arrangements (on very short notice and in a real pinch) to get No Time Soon and Leader's Choice to a foster home - we have some wonderful foster caregivers available, but none who could take a stallion, which NTS will be for at least a few more days.

        So Tuckaway, please take a bow because you do deserve it. And if you can send/post pics of the two foster boys, everyone would love to see them!

                  I just heard from the lady who is housing Eloquent until his transportation gets there. (Thank you, maxxtrot, for all of these arrangements!)

                  Anyway, he LOVES the 14x14 stall he has, rolled right away - is very content. The lady said he's an absolute sweetheart and a beauty. She's going to treat the injured leg for me while he's there. She did jog him and he wasn't head-bobbing lame, which is a good sign.

                  I can't wait to meet him in person!!!

                        Evidently, the leg is NOT pretty. But, the vet flexed the knee and that seemed fine. She thinks, worst case, that it's a pretty severe bone bruise to his cannon bone, right below the knee. Plus, he's scraped up pretty badly, but that's just superficial. I wasn't counting on a strip/conformation horse.

                        I haven't admitted this purchase to many people. Even my daughter thinks I'm crazy. Just wait though. She'll be begging for Eloquent to be her future junior hunter soon.

                          Well, pretty is as pretty does, right? Sounds like things will shape up well, and I guarantee the first time your daughter sees him she'll want him for her own! Congrats again!

                            Fessy's mom, Hang in there. You did a good thing for Abe and he will be fine and repay you with love and a heart of gold. I promise. Sometimes, when you are close to a situation, it is difficult to keep your head about you. I know *I* fall apart when it is my horses. When Frodo got into his first "fender bender", I was mortified. You know what you are doing, so relax and trust yourself. (Please say this to me at a later date when I am panicing about one of my two wonderful horses ) Abe will be fine, his world has been spun on it's side and besides, it sounds like he is settling down already. Please keep us posted.

                            Duffy VE was one of the boy horses that I liked from the beginning. Good luck with him and let us know how he is doing once you get him home.

                            I don't know why, but I am soooooo very interested in how all of these horses are doing. I want to know that they are all safe and sound. I know they will be taken care of and happy now. I get so emotional about these kinds of things. I really do. I am so glad all of you could give these lovely horses homes. I wish I could have as well. I tell ya, I think it is because of my own mare off of the track, but I swear they honestly appreciate this new lease on life and the love and one on one care that they get from us. Bugs has taken UNBELIEVABLEY AWSOME care of me throughout the years, I trust her COMPLETELY with my life. She has earned that trust. These horses are extremely honest and full of heart. It brings tears to my eyes, good tears, that all of you have put forth this effort for them. I can't wait to get to a point in my life where I can help as much as you guys have. You guys ROCK! All of you!!!!

                              Bugs, you're the sweetest. It's very cool how much you care.

                              I don't know where you live, but any time you are in Massachusetts, start a thread to let us know and I'm sure the rest of us in the area who bought a Noho horse would be glad to have you come for a visit!
                              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.

                                    I'll have pics of Deemed Worthy soon. He's so cute, I think he thinks he's come across the most awesome thing ever. I turn him out in a small paddock right now and he walks around there with a purpose just checking things out, occassionally trotting. He's so funny and so cute.

                                      I have lots of updates....11 to be exact!

                                      I'm housing the horses waiting for their ride to Flordia....here goes!

                                      1) Smokey Way- definately my favorite, I was trying to buy him all weekend (though he was sold!) and I was delighted to find that he was coming home with me. He's a gorgeous guy.

                                      2) Smokin Devil- Gorgeous gelding, very friendly as well. All of them have been so quiet and content.

                                      3) Adventurous- This big guy was the first one home...he's a sweetie as well, and loooves to eat!

                                      4) Town Meeting- Definately my other favorite. Super gorgeous and friendly.

                                      5) Very Eloquent- This guy is such a doll. He's going to be quite the horse when he's all patched up! He has a lot of presence. Luckily I don't think his leg is scraped up as much as it sounds like...definately all superficial.

                                      6) Karakorm Tsuamni- She's a really sweet girl. I couldn't believe how well all these horses loaded!

                                      7) Burn's Future- He's a great guy as well. I'm impressed with his manners for just being gelded 2 weeks ago!

                                      8) Proud Suave- This guy is a gem as well, will look great once he fills out!

                                      9) Miss Mattie Mu Mu- This girl is cute, someone butchered her forelock and gave her the dutch boy look, but has a very pretty head underneath. She's a bit grumpy.

                                      10) Fourty Licks- another very sweet girl...loves attention!

                                      11) Canna Bella- She is stunning...great color and very friendly. She is extremely dainty.

                                      All the horses have settled in so well, the first thing when they walked into their stalls was drop down and roll. I'm sure the new fluffy bedding was inviting, but those stalls at the fairs are TINY! All the horses are content, and waiting for the next trailer ride, soon to come!

                                          hunterjumper19.....good to hear that Forty Licks is with you and happy to be on her way to her new home. She and Shego were the ones who caught my eye and heart. Does anyone know if Shego found a home? My hats off to all the buyers, volunteers and people making things happen for these great horses. You guys are awesome.
