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!

    Thank goodness for a happy ending for this pretty guy! It would seem he is a horse who can "read" people pretty well and treats them like they treat him! Kudos on him~!

    In the future if someone is around this horse whom he doesn't like, I would watch them! And they better watch their backs!

      Unfortunetly not uncommon to see this type of crap at the low-end or even middle type auctions- coast to coast.

      Glad to hear that there might be a good outcome to the story though!

        Hey, just curious if you two ladies called Tim Nolan Sales yet to verify the rearing palomino I saw on Saturday. What did they tell you? And did you call Erin, who now owns the horse? The guy who tried running him through the auction ended up dumping the horse back on her after he declared him "dangerous." In case you missed it - I provided a link that contains her phone number.

        It's not very nice to publically call someone a liar unless you've first checked your resources.

        If you're too embarassed to apologize, I can understand, however I think one is owed.

        I figure I'd post this right out here since I really hate snippy nasty behind the scenes private messages. No I did not call. I have no intent of calling. I have never seen an auction of the sort you are talking about where horses sell for that much money and people haul from that far away. I checked the website and it does seem to be true in your part of the country and I figured the website would stand on its own.

            I got one too. My reply was that I didn't call her a liar, I said it sounded fishy. I really didn't completely explain fishy...could have been a stolen horse. Auctions in this part of the woods are either low end or high end; the two don't mix.

            Also, sounded like a long way to go to sell a horse for only $3000.

                Hey - here's the deal - you want to call me a liar without doing your homework first - then you're probably going to get a PM on it, which I thought was far more mature than posting trash on the public forum.

                No, I don't want a cookie. I just don't want to be a called a liar.

                Update - I will not be getting him because the price she's asking is outside of my range. She said she has a couple of interested parties, so I hope that he can get into a good home. At least the idiot cowboy wannabe doesn't have him anymore!

                  A2 - thank you for following this horse through back to where he belongs!!

                  Stuff like this happens all the time. Low price horses, high priced horses, bad looking to beautiful looking horses... People travel the country side to auction off a horse.

                  I will never forget "John Allen" big, beautiful bay gelding awaiting his run through. He worked out back sound. He should not have been there. He looked like the palamino's condition. He came from a few states away. Wrong hands!

                  I was 15 and not allowed to buy auction horses otherwise, I would have scooped him up.

                    Lets just say you gotta be careful buying from Dean Nolan. Of all the horses I've known to come from Dean, they have all had issues. Some have been extremely headshy and skittish. Others have been aggressive and dangerous. Some were just plain crazy... A few of them were nearly impossible to bridle. They didn't want their mouth or head touched so they would fly backwards in the stall. Others have had issues with heaves, back problems, etc. In one case, someone I know bought a horse from him and it started colicing nearly everyday. The vet had to come out all the time, and Dean swears he didn't know the horse had problems, but I don't believe that. Anyway, at 7 years old this horse ended up dying after being in his new home for just a few months. When selling a horse, he'll always tell you that they ride or drive the very best, but I have yet to see a good sound horse come from him. A few people have taken horses back to him and demanded their money back. From what I understand, these returned horses were sent to slaughter.
                    Why are you bringing up an almost three year old post to slam someone with your first post?

                      Might not be a troll. She might have googled Nolan Sales and found this thread. They just had their final sale for the year last weekend. I didn't go, had to teach, but I won't say there isn't any truth in the posters statement.

                      I heard from some people that most of the horses and ponies went for $75 Glad I didn't go. With hay the way it is I can't take a chance on buying anymore horses until the couple sales ponies I have sell.

                      And the sent to slaughter part is also beliveable. His brother, or cousin, can't remember which is one of the kill buyers.

                          So I have to ask. What is an Acey ducey? Guess I missed that one!

                            The OP of this Zombie thread had a neck for telling wild-donkey-butt stories, then recounting and changing (I seem to recall), disappearing and then re-emerging with a new identity...
                            I think some house guests, drunk and otherwise were also involved at one point or another.
                            But in essence a lot of her stories had the aroma of week old fish.
                            (oh, and a lot of 'look at the great horse woman I am' when the pictures told a different story - or the followup story that supposedly was not the same horse. Fun times!)

                              Be careful, y'all. Remember, 'speak of the devil and (s)he shall appear'!
                              Homeopathy claims water can cure you since it once held medicine. That's like saying you can get sustenance from an empty plate because it once held food.

                                          Couture, it's not one thread. Feel free to peruse the OP's many names:

                                          ....who else was she? She would royally screw up (She quit being A2 when a horse she was boarding colicked. She was gobsmacked that it happened,because she believed ALL colic was ALWAYS related to NEGLECT). Emphasis MINE.

                                          She then fell all over herself backpedaling and simultaneously raging at 'us' and when that happens, one usually ends up covered in manure and looking foolish.

                                          She hasn't come back.
