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!

  • SILVERWOOD FARM SEVERELY HIT BY TORNADO! UPDATES ON PAGE 8!

    This is the short version, as I just wrote this long post about what I know and somehow hit the wrong key and it wiped it out! This report is from a 9 year old friend of Tori's that was there when it hit. From her grandmother to a neighbor friend of mine! So, here goes again. Her Indoor was completely wiped out!! GONE! The stallion are in the barn connected directly to the indoor, but I'm told the stallions are OK! Liz's mother inlaw Rosie was in a camper she lives in next to the indoor and it was picked up and dumped completely upside down, I'm again told she is OK! Her 4 horse trailer was picked up and dropped in the creek or the field by the creek..not clear on this one yet! I did not hear anything about the bank barn or the house, so assuming they were not involved. I have been unable to reach Liz by phone and called a friend to go check on her..he could not get through due to trees down!!! I'm told the little girl was walked home by her parents, so there is a way to walk in...I am leaving now to go check on her...I will report back ASAP once I know what really happened there. So, Liz will not be online for a while. She really needs jingles now!!!!!!!!!!!

            OMG! That is horrible. I knew there were lots of tornados in her area and I was worried about her and the many many other folks who live there. I hope she and her family and horses are ok. Thanks for posting this and we are looking forward to your update.

                Jingles from FL. This has been a hideously freaky weather year for so many -- from hurricane ravaged FL to tornadoes, floods and the like further north.

                            I hope that at least part of what you've heard -- that people and horses are ok, is true. Add my prayers and jingles for everyone at Silverwood and everyone else in the path of this storm.

                            I've read a couple of times now that there is a large weather pattern (decades) that may be on the upswing. So hurricanes for some years may be more like in the 40s and 50s (bigger and more frequent) than in recent decades...

                              Very quick update, we are back to get chain saws, water, tractor and ect to go back and help. We did have to walk in!! All the stallion, horses and humans are just fine, physically anyway!!! Not one scratch on a horse or human, dog or cat!!!, but the damage is worst in some ways and better in some ways. Will post more detail later tonight!!! I will let her know everyone is jingling for her!!! I have only seen Liz cry in the 19 years I've know three times, and all three were today in about a span of 10 minutes, so she is pretty devesated. There are several friends there to help out, so she is very happy and grateful for that right now. We plan to get her drunk tonight at her favorite mexican resturant...I told her I was taking her there and she did smile about that!

                                Jingles that all of the people and horses are OK.

                                Edited to add that I just saw Norsire's post. Good news that all are OK. Wishes that I could be there to help.

                                    Norsire, thanks for the update. You are a good friend and I am glad you are there to help her. Sounds like she needs a Margarita or 10.

                                      Reading about her crying is bringing tears to my eyes.
                                      I am so sorry to hear about that. I lived through a tornado when I was little and I can tell you when it storms hard I am scared to death like a little bird at a rock concert.

                                      That fear will never go away but it makes you more knowledgable as to what storms can bring and the damage it does. Glad everyone is ok.

                                      If there is anything anyone can do please let us know.

                                        I will be there tonight to help Liz drown her frustrations in a Margarita. Norsire, I got a phone call from a friend calling from a cell phone at the Liz's property asking me to try to reach Liz's insurance agent as we both use the same company and Liz could not find the number in her policy.

                                        Here is the emergency number for Ace Insurance: 1-800-585-9624 press 9 to get to the weekend operators or try: 1-800-352-4462.

                                        Can you please get these numbers to her. I have been trying to call but all phone service is down for your area.

                                        I also called her and my agent from AH&T. Tara will be coming to Liz's farm tomorrow morning.

                                        I can pass this to Liz at the restaurant tonight but thought you might be able to tell her today so she knows that people are trying to help her but cannot reach her.
