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!

  • Chloe FILLY 4/10 - on CAM 1 tonight, Dove Filly! 4/5 - Dove/Ruby CAM 2 tonight (4/11

    Dove's Cam: http://www.marestare.com/emeraldtwo.php

    For those that are interested, my mare, Chloe (by Carino o/o a t'bred mare) is getting close to foaling...

    I'm pretty frustrated with her since I can't tell what her deal is. She is not a maiden, this is her second foal. I have talked briefly with her previous owner that had her when she foaled out before, but they neglected to tell me if she waxes, if she drips milk, how quickly she "gets down to business" etc. They did tell me that she foaled ON her due date and it was a filly.

    Up until this am, her "milk" has been yellowish and sticky (very sticky) - this am it is opaque, tinged white, and still sticky. Not really milk though.

    Other "symptoms": vulva loose/relaxed, tail is floopy, belly has shifted, butt has sunk in, she is GRUMPY, poop (as of tonight) is ploppy, she did NOT want to be out today - she was all about being in her stall. Last night and today she has paced circles and while she is never the neatest mare in the world, she DESTROYED her stall last night with the pacing, poop and pee.

    She is in foal to the deceased TK stallion, Veneziano (does not help that I am VERY excited to see this foal!!!). She is one of the main reasons that I put the barn on marestare as she has several people wanting to watch. http://www.marestare.com/emerald.php

    Photo of her from tonight: http://i203.photobucket.com/albums/a...m/P3230002.jpg

    It is so frustrating, it is like having a maiden mare without having a maiden.. .and wouldn't you know it, the next mare that I have due IS a maiden! I just don't know if I should plan on staying up, get some sleep, wrap her tail... whatever I do, Murphy's Law dictates that it will be the wrong thing!

    Of course, Val's baby was playing when I was graining tonight and accidently got me in my knees (double barreled - she was running and bucking and got too close to me, she didn't mean to do it I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time and didn't react fast enough)... so by that logic Chloe will go tonight since me crawling around on the floor will be so much fun NOT.

        hehehe.. a 3rd to watch...

        Anyone else having trouble seeing the cam? It clears for a second or two and goes like totally fuzzy for me?


        • Original Poster

          No, I had to adjust the stinking thing... that is what happens with a wireless cam (grrrrrrrrrrr..... ) I think I have it adjusted now.

          I can get it to be crystal clear (you do have to adjust the brightness though - right click on the screen) then later on will have to readjust the reciever to get a clear photo again...

                Suzette - you know I just like to torture you! LOL

                I am not promising tonight to anyone... I am clueless what she will do. (and my "connection" is going to drive me totally batty tonight apparently!).

                  Annissa she's down looks like something is happening, you better go check her

                  ok she's been up and down and I'm seeing lots of tail raising and lowering, she might be getting close
                  right now she's up
                  ooo how exciting, I kind of played a part in this in the early stages

                    you saw her go down??? I missed that - but she might have done it when I was on my way to the barn or on the way back. She is very antsy, and she had more ploppy poop that was more ploppy than before. Her vulva is starting to swell a little too... I am starting to be guardly more optimistic for tonight.. but I'm still not getting the "def tonight vibe" that I normally get LOL.

                    And you played a HUGE part by bringing her down from VA and keeping her a couple of nights at your place!!!!! I still can't thank you enough!!!!

                    Oh, and I figured out why the picture was rolling earlier.. I was trying to charge the portable phone that will actually work in the barn, apparently it interferes with the signal??? Who knew??? I unplugged it and the picture is crystal clear again.. .technology <rolls eyes>

                      She's pretty good at swishing that tail around. She's driving me crazy, I can only imagine what it's doing to you!!

                        YUP! Mare 'STARE' - they got that right! 5 minutes of watching her shift her weight and raise her tail.

                        Oh.. big bellied girl. She probably wishes it was ready right now too.

                          Y'all have no idea how much she is driving me crazy!!! I'll go out and get a visual again for the night to see what she looks like up close.

                            You have an update for us?? I know for sure that if I head off to bed now, she'll foal


                            • Original Poster

                              LOL.. I don't know what to tell you. More cow patties in the stall and she is mighty uncomfortable. But for that I don't think tonight. She did yawn once while I was out there, but she only did it once... her belly is also gurgeling up a storm (not that it has anything to do with the price of ttea in china lol).

                                  I can't wait for this baby. I had the biggest crush on Veneziano and wanted to breed to him so badly, the timing was just not right at the time. I am DYING to see this bebe!

                                      After I went out the last time last night I came back into the house and went to bed.... then woke up every 30 mins or so to look at the monitor.

                                      Kind of glad I did that instead of attempting to stay up all night LOL!

                                      I'll let y'all know what she looks like after I go out and feed/turn out this am. I need coffee before I do anything though! OF COURSE she will foal tonight since the temp is supposed to be 30 degrees tonight!!!! Plus a windchill!

                                        Well that was a first... just as I was getting up to go out and feed/turn out she lays down. She hasn't gone down this early in the am before.... but she looks like she is resting. I guess I will let her rest a little before I go outside.
