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!

    Any chance Leg Up can post a tally of funds raised as the auction progresses? From a quick check - the end date will be about Jan 26.

      I believe it will be continuous beyond what is currently up. I helped donate two items that will be posted only one at a time; only one item is currently posted.

          PP, my understanding is that if you are a successful bidder for frozen semen, then you are responsible for the costs related to transporting it to wherever you plan to store it. Those costs might include locating and securing the use of a dry shipper, as well as the cost of shipping via a carrier, but you should check with whoever is donating to clarify on that. After you receive the dry shipper with the frozen semen in it, you should already have a situation arranged for the proper long term storage, i.e. a frozen semen tank that is regularly serviced. Some DVM practices will do this for you, but you have to have all that arranged in advance. You will also have to return the dry shipper to where you borrowed it from. A lot of us own and maintain our own frozen semen tanks, but like myself, do not own any dry shippers; we rely on the stud farms who regularly ship to supply those and we return them after we transfer the semen to our own long term storage tanks. Hope that helps.

            It depends. Some of the frozen semen will be held by individuals, some will be stored at clinics. So, you usually have the option of having it shipped to your vet or yourself, or check with the location that is storing it and see if they will continue storing it for you. Best thing to do is contact the party that has donated it and find out what the options are!

              I have no issue with doing that but as it sits, I won't know for sure until people pay for the items they have won the bid on and what percentage has been taken out by Google Checkout. As it stands right now, if everyone pays for what they won, we will have raised close to $4,000. I am hoping to post a "ticker" at some place on the page to show the funds that we have received.

              If anyone has an item they wish to donate, you can do that, as well by going here: http://www.legup-auction.org/donations We've gotten some fun and interesting items over the last several days!

                I have donated six doses of frozen semen - two doses from each of three Celle Hanoverian stallions - Grand Cru, Wolkenstein II and Wolkentanz I. It is all semen that is known to freeze very well.

                It is stored at Equine Medical Center of Ocala. They charge a fee for transfer of and tank recharge of $75. If a buyer buys all 6 doses, there is still just one fee of $75. Alternatively, if someone buys just one dose, the transfer fee is $75, so it pays to buy more. In addition, they will rent their shipper if a buyer does not have access to a tank. Shipping charges are extra.

                They charge $1/dose per month storage, so the semen could remain with them until needed.

                This is such a great cause. Get bidding, folks!

                                No. Virginia folks...the weather sucks, dark early, footing freezes and the riding can be limited. Take heart!

                                Just donated 8 uses of my indoor to get you through the winter (up to 3 horses per use). Private farm, well-lit indoor -- and easy to get to if you need it after work.

                                If you don't need that much time or have that many horses, surely your friends could go in with you on the bid so they could join you --- and you'd have a great time.

                                Aldie, Centerville, Manassas, Haymarket area and very easy to access.

                                Lots of winter yet to come. No excuses that you can't ride...lol!

                                  Whoever wins the bid on Boleem's frozen semen will be allowed to keep it at Select Breeders' Service, at no charge, until they are ready to breed. Why ship it until the winner is ready to use it? It doesn't cost very much for me to store 2 donated straws.

                                  The less frozen semen, no matter how good, is moved to unknown territority is better for the little swimmers and ultimately a quick pregnancy.

                                          The pony's are killer! You want to collect one of each - how can anyone choose just one? (In our dreams of course). And I can't get over Checkmate's knees. So many lovely stallions to drool over.
