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!

New York Horse Rescue needs help

  • New York Horse Rescue needs help

    ***UPDATE*** Mona has 3 very nice geldings that are ready for homes but haven't found them yet. Happy Tooter, Say Handsome, and Law N Dora are all "ready to go" according to Mona. Go look at their pics and read about them. Can you help out this wonderful lady who's done so much over the years to rehome horses? You *know* you want to...... www.nyhr.org



    I got an email yesterday that NYHR needs to place as many horses as they can in a very short period of time. The head of the group is having a family emergency (PM for details) and it sounds like they need to get their numbers down asap. If there's anyone out there that's been looking for an OTTB or a OTTSTB, please go take a look. www.nyhr.org

    There is at least one trip planned to bring horse(s) down from NY to Virginia Beach early next week, so this might be a great opportunity to share transportation costs.

    Mods--I think this is ok as there are always CANTER, etc threads, but if I'm mistaken I apologize. My first concern was helping out Mona and getting these horses placed.

    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    You call it boxed wine. I call it carboardeaux.

    This is a shameless bump. Here's a recent article about NYHR: http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?p...d=aLiTSIkDAt34

    I know there has to be a COTHer who needs a new partner-in-crime... You guys are the best enablers ever, so please let me know if you just need a little push in the right direction. Mona has done a lot of good over the years and now needs some extra help. Could you be that person? Or do you know someone who could? Please pass this along and let's find some homes for these horses.

      Although I can't help with placement, I'm happy to offer some trailering help if needed. I live in CT and would be willing to trailer within a few hours of the rescue (I have a big two-horse trailer).

            Bumping. I sent you a PM. I hope everything is okay with Mona and everyone else at NYHR.

            Are they also in need of donations? (Silly question, I guess - aren't all rescues?)

              Bump and half seat--I have replied to your PM.

              I'm sure they wouldn't turn down donations. While finding homes seems to be the top priority, it's been a sad year for donations, so every bit can help. I can't take a horse, but I'm sending some $$.

                  Bump for NYHR

                  I adopted a 4 year old tb from them eight years ago. They've been wonderful for ottbs! Rapid Reality and I send our very best wishes to Mona and her family, and I send many thanks for my wonderful mare.

                      Happy Tooter, Law N Dora, and Say Handsome still need homes. Mona's really trying to get her numbers down right now and these are 3 very nice horses that are ready to go! Pics are at www.nyhr.org. Who needs a new partner??

                      If you don't see what you are looking for, call or email and ask. My BO has a history of snapping up Mona's ponies and sure enough, history has repeated itself. Classy, a large pony who was NOT LISTED ON THE WEBSITE arrived llaaatttteee last night. She's 4yo, ~14h, fairly delicately built, black and white paint, and solid w/t/c. I'll be out tonight to meet her and take pics. I can't post them here, but will email them if anyone wants a peak.

                            Oh wow, she has some lovely horses on there.

                            Someone has to want at least one! If anyone isn't looking because they think a rescue can't possibly have an AWESOME horse... click the link and take a look!

                              I'll admit to having a bit of Happy-Tooter-lust! If nothing else, what a FABULOUS name! But isn't he adorable??!!

                                My horse was boarded at the layup barn where Law N Dora was last year. He was a colt then....very sweet, gave the workers no problems when handwalking even though he was on extended stall rest.

                                Guys....this horse has a great attitude! As a 3 yr old colt he was a real sweetie. Take another look!

                                  Bumping for the holiday morning crowd. Anyone not cooking out there who needs a new horse???

                                  FWIW, I was farmsitting last night and got to meet Classy, the pony that my BO adopted from Mona. Well, she's a sweet, snuggly little thing but she's a tad on the homely side. I think/hope she's got a bit more growing in her as her body's a bit small for her head, but she is the quietest, kindest 4yo that I've ever met. As far as her markings, well she's a very unusual black and white paint. Have you seen cartoon dogs who are spotted (think Blue's Clues) and always have at least one perfect dark circle around an eye? Well, she has lovely dark ovals around both of her eyes with a wide white blaze. Very unique. Not what you'd call beautiful, but she looks like she'll make some little kid a perfect little partner.
