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!

    lmao.. that is hilarious! Winston was having a great game of tug of war. Tails wagging the whole time. Wonder what started off grabbing the car bumper.
    If i'm posting on Coth, it's either raining so I can't ride or it's night time and I can't sleep.

      Creepy story - a dog that wants to and can eat a car bumper? Not cute. Also, kinda off-topic.

        Don't really see what is cute about a pittie ripping off a car bumper.

          Not the slightest bit funny in my opinion. Seriously freaking disturbing, yes.

            Not amusing.
            This weekend my 12 year old pyr suffered an unprovoked attack by a pit* three houses away from her own. My dog was on a leash walking the same route we have for the past 10 years this was not a new thing.
            Of course I got the "My dog has 'never' done that before." BS! This dog was too practiced for this to have been the first fight. By the grace of her thick fur and greater weight plus the fact that I put myself between the pit and my dog like a cutting horse** my pyr got off with just a couple of scrapes. If they have any sense at all they will have it put down before it has a chance to take down one of the neighbor kids.

            I think the pit type dogs should be at 'least' as regulated as firearms if not more so. Just why would any honest person want or need a dog with the bite strength of a hyenea

            *Neighbors have an out of control chicahuahua and an out of control pit- maybe the owners are the problem you think.
            **It wasn't after me and I don't think as of yet had learned to pit people- give it time it will get there I am sure.

            Don't tell me 'It can't be done.'

              That is scary. That dog was loose in the streets with a pack. What if it was a kid riding a bicycle?

                I was more pi$$ed than scared. My old girl was so shocked that she sat back and it's hard for her to get up again when that happens so it was a team effort. I didn't even consider that I might get bitten.
                FWIW I haven't seen the mutt since but I haven't actually been looking either. I just hope that they saw the light and had both of the beasts taken somewhere else. My old champion has such a fan club they wouldn't stand a chance in court even if they got Johnnie Chocheran to defend their mutts. I could get 50 kids and at least 8 AKC judges to vouch fo my dogs temperment and good character.

                  That was disturbing.
                  "look deep into his pedigree. Look for the name of a one-of-a-kind horse who lends to his kin a fierce tenacity, a will of iron, a look of eagles. Look & know that Slew is still very much with us."

                    Good god. That's really not funny. If they can do that to a car, I shudder to think what they could do to a human or animal.

                      There's no need to go overboard. Pitties, like most dogs, have some prey drive and there are LOTS of these dogs (usually herding dogs) who chase cars. Most don't know what to do with the car once they catch it, but some, like this dog, grabbed onto it and pulled. He wasn't being aggressive (except in play), he was just playing and being a dog. It's only because he's a strong dog that he was finally able to get that bumper off. Notice that he lost interest in the car after that, until the car started to move away again. It's the prey instinct. Just because he chased down a car doesn't mean he's a danger to humans or other animals.
                      Some people are like slinkies...not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.

                        Ok... apparently no one around here has anything near a sense of humor.
                        A) I hate pits I think their the worst kind of dog out there.
                        B) I think its funny cause the dog actually chewed the bumper off a car. Not that he is attaching something living or not.
                        C) I am glade it wasn't put down. He looks like a good dog and the judge put him in an obedience class. The owner didn't mean for him to get out. He was locked in the yard but got out and the owner was willing to up the security on the yard.
                        Why do people always look on the bad side of things and never try to see even the little bit of funny in things.
