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!

  • Jingles needed for my mare

    My mares due date (for a lack of better words) has come n gone. She is a maiden and I feel like I have been run thru the gambet. She has all along not looked overly pregnant the hole time. Well she got something in her "good" eye that required having the vet out. After he treated her I had him run blood on her so I could know for sure. I must admit I will be heart broken if she isn't as I have waite two years now for this foal. She was bred two years ago to the same stallion but aborted after a career ending eye injury. I will find out first thing in the Am once my Vet has the lab results. I am so nervous.
    I brought my mare in today to give her a bath and to take some pictures.
    We sure could use some jingles to help us through this.

    Here she is today.

    and my personal favorite...

            Thank you so much. It sure is nice to have support.
            Cottage Farm, I am sorry to hear of your loss. Did you notice anything different in your mare when she aborted? My mare lives out 24/7 but I spend most of my day hanging out with her. I think I know every single inch of her. Would I have seen anything? wet on the back of her legs any thing with her vulva?
            Do mares abort at that stage with no signs of a abortion afterwards?

              Has she had a major change in attitude?

              My mare is a maiden and is due in June, and does not look one bit pregnant but she is. Sometimes they hide them really well. Best of luck! let us know how it turns out.

                She has always been super sweet almost obnoxious. She is still sweet but any time I touch her belly near her flank she turns to nip.This is new. She will let me mess with her udder and still doesn't mind that at all, but she does not have any developement there. She has a good size barrel and has stayed pretty fit thru her pregnancy. I thought that maybe the foal is high .

                        Good thoughts coming your way!

                        I've been doing foal watch at a friends place and a few of the mares have been over 2 weeks overdue and not forming bags at all until the day before they delivered. These weren't maiden mares either! Each one is just so different. Most of the horses have been overdue, but I think a lot of that has been due to the unsettled weather. They have all delivered big healthy foals, including the maiden that didn't show very much.

                        Please keep us posted.

                          What an absolutely gorgeous mare!! Though I have to be honest and say she does not look pregnant to me but those maidens can sometimes be sneaky! I had one that did not look pregnant or develop an udder until day 350something and then developed and udder and foaled within a few hours. Keeping my fingers crossed for you!!
                          Is she developing an udder at all?

                                    But I just have to ask.................why would your vet draw blood instead of just sticking his hand up there and giving you an answer?

                                        Well I got some not so good news today. Her Estrone Sulfate(sp) levels came back a 17. Vet said that more than likely she aborted recently. He said a non pregnant mare would be a zero and a pregnant mare with a viable foal would be 25- 35.
                                        I looked all over the internet to find out more information but I am having a hard time finding anything. I was way to upset to talk to him at that point. I have a call into him to see if he can explain it in more detail now that I have given it time to "sink in".
                                        I didn't have him palpate her because she hates it so much. And I mean HATES it. If any one can give me some clarity to what these numbers mean I would greatly appreciate it.
                                        Any advice would be welcomed too.
                                        Thanks to all.
