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!

        HA! I was thinking this very same thing This is *excellent* news, you must be so excited by the progress.

        Continued jingles, but it sounds like things have "turned a corner", and maybe we can collectively take a bit of an exhale. With cautious optimism

        Get some rest, and please keep us posted! Surely someone on this thread has some technological expertise (and is a premium member), and can post the pics??

                  • I have nothing but good vibes for D-day and oopsie, but (and I ask this in a whisper) what are jingles? I'm assuming they are vibes, but from where do "jungles" come?

                            • OK - just found this thread and read through it - good for the little fella - glad he's doing so well. Now.

                              I think STRONGLY that he should be named Normandy. Its very elegant for showing. Then, his barn name can be Norman. It just makes me laugh and laugh to think about calling him Norman. Hope it fits him well!

                                Saturday update - 9 days old.

                                Little bugger gets stronger daily, bloodwork continues to look good. Almost there getting up on his own, still needs to get his back legs under him the right way and PUSH off.

                                Unfortunately we are now dealing with several pressure sores. One of which looks horrible. It is at his hip, so incredibly difficult to bandage. We do try to keep him on his other side and will work on more standing during the day. Now that I am home I can do better with that.

                                He did get to go outside today for the first time! Ava rolled and rolled. D-Day got his hiney washed, his boo boos cleaned and creamed, so outside wasn't as much fun for him ;-)

                                Got o figure a way to cover his poor sores.

                                Got to run. Actually have farm sitter who will be doing 3 feedings for me today so I can attend a high school graduation AND a wedding. My mom will be here watching my sons so there are plenty of folks capable.

                                Thanks for all the good wishes - now we need STANDING and Healing vibes!

                                  You have a lot going on today, luckily you also have some backup

                                  Great that he got a chance to go out on this beautiful day--even though he didn't "technically" get to enjoy it, poor boy.

                                  Good to hear that he continues to make progress, perhaps some of the COTHers on this thread have some suggestions as to how best to treat the pressure sores? It sounds like you are (as you have been) doing everything you can, and all the right things.

                                  Fight on and continue to rally, little D-Day! Between your uber conscientious "mom" and the Power of COTH, you will pull through this...

                                    • Regarding the pressure sores..would it help to put a foal quilted blanket on to protect the hips? Just trying to think how you can pad up that area. I've even see foals in human sweatshirts arranged to protect wounds.

                                      • I think Elastikon is worth a shot to cover his sores. Just make sure the surrounding hair is totally clean and dry. You can stick a patch of gauze over the sore to prevent the tape from sticking. Perhaps they make gel bandages for human pressure sores that would be big enough?
                                        A gel mat that you can stick under him may help some, too. Good luck!
                                        As Peter, Paul, and Mary say, a dragon lives forever.

                                        • Really happy to hear he is doing better!

                                          I have had success on a BIG gelding with a hip sore with using a lot of neosporin on big gauze pad with several more added for padding...and then using duct tape to hold it in place. The duct tape had the added benefit of providing some waterproofing....or should I say..poop and pee proofing.

                                          Edited to add...I used the duct tape out of desperation...I couldn't get anything else to stay in place. He did heal up quickly after that.
