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!

  • yearling WB filly stocking up behind

    Causes? I have a call in to my vet, but just wondering why - no real heat in joints, not sensitive or lame- She gets 2- 1/2 # of TC growth per day so I know I can't be overfeeding- she gets free choice minerals and free choice hay as well.

    My first question would be are you sure it is stocking up? Where is the "swelling" exactly? If it is mostly in the fetlock area I would worry about OCD. That is the perfect age, and bilateral joint effusion w/out lameness is a hallmark of OCD. Not trying to scare you, but I would want to make sure it is simply stocking up. Generally true stocking up will resolve with turn-out.

      What's your weather been like? Conducive to standing around eating hay instead of moving? Suddenly wet/rainy/muddy?

        Take away the minerals and force feed in her food exactly how much she is supposed to get.

          Could she be chapped under the fetlocks from wetness...e.g., snow or wet grass?

            It's a muck pit out there. They are basically standing in it eating hay. She is out with 2 older geldings who move around very little. They have a big paddock but they seem to prefer just hanging by the gate.

              I would check the skin on her hind legs for fungus. Also, if she only needs a little bit of Growth to maintain her condition, you should consider feeding her the 30% Supplement.

                Is there any truth to spring grass (or new grass all of a suddden) can be a cause for swelling? I had heard something to that effect before. Just a thought as we have an abundance of new grass right now. Hope it is nothing serious.

                  Being a yearling, could also be physitis, and balanced mineral will help that. Might also try MSM.

                    Last year we had two of our yearling fillies hind legs filled, they were also a little down in the dumps generally lethargic and off their food.. we blood tested and the results came back as viral. They remained outdoors with access to a big bedded barn and over the course of two weeks the limbs returned to normal and they went back to being their normal happy selves. Interstingly it always seems to happen at this time of year as our groom has a number of horses that have shown the same symptoms at her own yard the last few weeks, passing from one horse to the other but not all...

                      Two of mine were hit with something viral this winter that caused both hinds to stock up. They were slightly lethargic, but did not go off feed, run temps. They cleared up over a week's time and are fine now.

                        Thanks ML. Was hoping you would chime in. Talked to vet and she is not terribly concerned. Temp 100.6 and she is not lame. Gave her 3/4 g of bute. Hope it will just go away but I'm all anxious about the possibility of physitis (sp?)

                          Springer you should be able to differentiate between stocking up which will cause a soft edematous filling and may extend up the leg a bit and physitis which tends to make the joint itself look somewhat hourglass shaped and has less of a "soft" feel to the swelling. If at all in doubt I would have the vet out to be certain what you are dealing with.
