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!

    She is big all right.

    I'm afraid my mare will be just as big. She's huge now and still has 2 months left.

              What are the chances that two foals could come on the same night/same time? Busy place!

                  Are you getting a freeze on the video? It freezes on me for about 5 seconds or so, then she moves, then it freezes for about 5 seconds.....

                    Probably better than the 5 that came at my place one night years ago....half of the entire foal crop in one night between 1a.m. and about 6a.m.

                      That happened to Blazing Colours (FaithCremello here) last year. They were all busy helping a foal get up (he ended up at the horsepital) and people were phoning her saying "the mare is foaling" and she was saying "yes, we know, we are there helping!". "NO, the WHITE mare is foaling..." It was funny to see some of them rush to the other barn, dump the straw and here was the foal!!

                      I am watching the Glenhill cams mostly, but my barn alarm is on. I just avoid the minis!

                          Just checked.................the giant mare hasn't foaled. Hope that they have plasma or colostrum on hand if she's been dripping milk this whole time!

                            Just me and my two kids.
                            I checked mares in the middle of the afternoon and brought two in from the fields as they were really soft and beginning to wax. Two others were just kind of hanging out but not waxed and not really soft so left them. 5th one was willing to run off (165 acres) and not be checked so I figured she wasn't all that ready. Put two into stalls and set everyone's alarm clocks (kids and I did every two hour checks but only one of us got up at any one time so the other two could sleep a bit...back before foal cams....and both kids....age 19 and 12......had been around foal deliveries for about 5-6 years at that point)....thinking, as I went to bed, "two foals...can do that".

                            Midnight check, one in stall beginning to drip, second in stall waxed heavy. Three in field kind of hanging near the gate to the big corral but nothing going on.

                            1a..I wake up hearing brand new baby whickers and mare baby talk...under my bedroom window which looked out on the field. Jumped up, bathrobe, boots and flashlight. Got out there and first sight is palomino foal laying all nice and chestnut mare (one of the ones hanging around the gate earlier) is standing over it and baby talking. OK!! Climbed through the fence and went to check on things and put my hand on mares belly to lean over/under and check for milk production and my hand feels a baby kick..WTF? Looking around with flashlight and see liver chestnut maiden (the one that was happy to run off during the afternoon check) standing over near a tree with membranes hanging from her and a puzzled look on her face. Seems the lighter chestnut mare (#2 in the herd) had decided this was HER foal and she (liver ch) was fairly low in the herd structure and said "uh, OK". Called for the older kid and he got two halters/leads, got the lighter chestnut mare haltered and tied and halter on the mom, picked up her foal and headed to the barn with mare following on a lead. Got them settled (she turned into an awesome mom, willing to nurse anything). While in the barn checked on the two in there and big red mare was down and pushing...YIKES. Got her delivered and sent kid out to untie the one we'd left out side (almost forgot about he!) and into a pen. Turned around to find #3 (in a stall) going down and about that time other kid had gotten up with his alarm clock and seeing barn lights on and the two of us out there he came out...and walked into the barn to tell me that #4 (still in the field) had laid down by the gate and water broke....dash out there and she's too far to get up and bring in....waited for that one to arrive and moved that mom and baby into pen. #5 (the one who tried to steal the first one's foal) waited until almost 6 to drop hers. All did well, younger son got to school, I got to work on time (not that I was worth much) and older son had the day to play with babies...had all haltered and leading sort of by the time I got home.

                                  The birth happened about 10 minutes after I posted. It's a colt. I don't know this farm. Seems his very beautiful daddy passed away last year.

                                    Please jingle for the Tintagel mare, Taxes, who foaled three nights ago. She delivered a beautiful filly, but is now at Tufts due to an infection, probably caused by bits of retained placenta. She is an amazing palomino clydesdale!! Same barn had another filly last night, from a light coloured shire mare. Amazing horses!!
