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!

Lame filly...

  • Lame filly...

    So I posted a bit ago about my filly being lame and suspecting stone bruise. Well her foot looks good now. And I understand maybe it is just still bruise and sore, but I took a video of her walking and trotting today. I just thought I'd throw it out there and see if you guys see it at the walk at all and watch how she places her foot down and tell me if you think it's in the foot or elsewhere? There's no heat anywhere, even up the shoulder, I picked up her other front and she had no problem weight bearing on it (and it didnt seem to bother her even slightly) and I made Her stand there for quite a while. Then i fed her some bute in a handful of grain and she ate it and proceeded to paw with the hurt leg as usual... Arg!

    Here's the video:

    My only advice is for you to call the vet out.

    It could still be from the stone bruise, or it could be an abscess, or it could be something else...

      Rosebud, it is not that uncommon for foals in your area to fracture coffin bones when the ground is hard in the winter. If handled correctly it will heal, but it sounds like it may be time to get the vet out for hoof testers and perhaps xrays. Jingling that it is minor.

        Oh yeah, it's noticeable, even at the walk. Add another vote to calling the vet.

          I am not sure why one would not call a vet in this case...

            Filly is definitely lame and I agree with those who said to have the vet x-ray ASAP.

              Thanks guys, message into the vet .... Hopefully this guy is good, it's who my BO uses but as I've been here three months I haven't had time to research yet. His website seems promising compared to others I hVe seen, and he's close. I guess this forces me to make a relationship since I need to do so anyway to get my mares Caslicks removed next month... An have someone I trust for foaling if something were I happen.

              I was thinking the fractures cannon bone thing myself but I tend to Jump to worst case scenario hence my asking you guys. The ground had t been that hard, more a mud out then anything but I'm not gonna rule it out. Hopefully it's nothing. This filly is trouble! She got a kick on this same lame when she was 5 months old a week before inspection and had a hematoma.. Wasn't lame an it went away, we tried drainin it but nothing to drain, then a few weeks ago her right hind puffed up. Dear lord. She's too young for this already!!!

                Ouch Poor baby. Best of luck with this, and jingles for the filly (and for you.) Please keep us posted on the outcome, fingers crossed that it's something minor.

                    Someone suggested something hurt in the shoulder (muscle, tendon ligament etc) and said her filly did the same thing and barely could pivot on it, tried the test (as I usually pivot her around me - to the left - not to the right... And that was hard for her...

                      Why not just call the vet and have the vet run all the tests and they can actually figure out the issue instead of guessing?

                        I think rosebud said he/she(?) has a call into the vet and is waiting for a return call?

                            Best of luck, Rosebud. It'll be interesting to hear what the vet says.

                              If it's been muddy, could be a strain somewhere but the vet should be able to pinpoint something for you...

                                I'd definitely have some base line X-rays done to rule out certain injuries to the bones. Could just be a deep bruise which takes a while to go away. Not uncommon for horses of any age to get this this time of year when the ground conditions are changing with the weather. This is not uncommon in young horses.

                                  If I were you, I wouldn't mess around it too much until the vet had a chance to come over. You can do more harm than good.

                                      There is a significant difference in prognosis for a coffin bone fracture, versus a cannon bone fracture!!! The other posters are talking about the coffin joint.
