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!

  • WARNING: Be careful who you lease to....unbelievable! Pics pg. 1. THEY'RE HOME!!!

    This mare and 2 mo. old foal were confiscated from a BNT who had her on a free lease. The mare left my farm 7 months before these pics were taken -- big, robust (and just weaned from a 7 month old).

    The BNT's name shall remain nameless for the moment, until the mare/foal are out of rehab and are able to travel back here to Virginia.

    This mare was put in the MMB last year for both the GOV and RPSI and was a HB champion.

    She was found as "bones", severely dehydrated. Clearly starved -- she gave her body away to keep her 2 mo. old going. It makes me sick and so angry...

    Thank God a caring person, stuck there neck out and called my farm and alerted us.

      The link doesn't work.

      I'm really sorry about your mare. I'd love to know who the trainer is though.

              Yeah I am going to be snarky here but this has seemed to be a trend when people lease out their horses they end up getting starved. Do you not check up on your horses when they are leased out? You still own them so why would you not? I would be checking up on my horses if they were leased out.

                This mare was out of state with one of "the best" -- who kept in constant touch about how well the mare was doing.

                This person is very well known, with a stellar reputation (or so it seemed), that has many of us absolutely stunned.

                This mare does not belong to me, but I have her 1st two foals (by my stallions). She just had her third with the new lessor.

                This mare wasn't just turned over to anybody -- but it goes to show even BNT's can have a dark side that is kept quiet.

                I don't know why I can't get the pics up, but I'll try again.

                  sid - You have an email.

                  While I agree that I would check up on my horses as well, I know for myself personally it's hard to see my broodmare who's in another state also. ESPECIALLY with these gas prices! And one would think a BNT would be trustworthy enough. I know it costs me $300 to see my mare once every 2-3 months, but I also LOVE the woman she is with (another COTH'r) and enjoy just visiting in general. Plus we show hop together when I'm down, so it makes it like a mini vacation. --- Unfortunately, when your hundreds of miles away and have lots of obligations otherwise it may be hard in some cases to be able to do that.

                        I'm VERY sorry.

                        Since you are a premium member, you can post a pic by saving the picture on your hard drive and just browse arter you click on "Add Attachment." Click on that file then just type in a file description.

                        My guess is right now you are trying to link to a web page when using the "Add Attachment" feature and that is why it is not working. If you want to link to a web page that has the pic, you need to use the "URL" button above your post.

                            A friend who also has copies said she'd do it, thanks so much for offering.

                            I'll send "before" pics later.

                              Unfortunately you just can't fo on trust when your horses are involved.

                              A good number of years ago we sent two of our mares to a very well-known breeder who always gets accolades on this list. I was told the farrier would be their barn the next day and I left instructions to have shoes pulled and both mares trimmed. It never happened. The owner had an emergency in another state and our mares were thrown out in a rocky paddock. When we picked them up a few weeks later they had both lost weight, had thrown most of their shoes and had torn up feet, and they were both infected (we had pulled clean cultures right before sending them off).

                              Another time we sent our mares off to be bred (with foals at their side) one of the foals suffered a broken shoulder and eventually had to be put down. Again, a farm with a supposedly stellar reputation in PA. We were told that they found the foal like that when they went in to feed but given the fact that the mare was in such poor shape that I didn't even recognize her I've often wondered....

                              So now we have our own stallion and keep our mares at home.

                              Thank goodness for the friend who called you. Hope your mare and foal are OK.

                                I am posting these for a friend on an alter (obviously).

                                Link to picture before removal (she was taken off property next day).

                                  sid -- yes, we do seem to have a recurring problem when people try to post pictures with Kodak EasyShare ... as someone else said, if you save them to your drive in a different place (on the desktop, in 'my pictures', anyplace but that Kodak folder) and then use the 'add attachment' button, they should post correctly.

                                      That is absolutely disgusting!!! The BNT needs to be exposed!!! or shot!!! There is no reason in the world why any mare should ever be in that terrible condition!! I hope you can bring her back slowly and with a vets care. She looks like she was such beautiful mare!

                                        OMG, those pictures bring tears to my eyes!

                                        How could someone do this to a horse, especially a mom and baby?

                                        We lease my dtr's equitation horse out, and luckiy he lives only 15 minutes from my dtr's college. For 2006, I will be sure to place him where we can still keep an eye on him.

                                        Wow. unbelieveable......
