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!

  • So tired of watching *Fat Mare TV*

    and she's not even technically overdue yet. But the on again off again waxing and dripping milk is just to drive me insane isn't it?

    I'm DEFINITELY going to get whatever I need next year to have online foaling cams so you guys can sit up all night and watch and just phone me when you see a foot.

    This will be me next year =>

      Nikita, have you tested her milk? That was really helpful for us. We were up only 2 nights. We missed it anyway. We both dozed off around 5 am and woke up at 6:40 and she had just been born. I swear Raissa knew we were watching her and she was waiting until we weren't looking. Sneaky mare!

          oh dear ...

          Here I thought that I would wake up, after a very restful night of sleep, to pictures of the 2nd palomino & white sabino TB foal and news of the little darling!
          Guess not, huh?!

          Oh well ... I had one born on Easter day (Johnny Onna Spot) - maybe that's what she is waiting for???

            i am in the same boat with my mare who generally foals at 324, 326 , 328 days . she is now 332 days and had wax for 5 days and so huge and sunken, i keep saying oh its tonite. i am starting to worry because my friends think she is overly huge and she was ultrasounded 3 x and only one was found, , but i have a friend who did the same and her mare just foaled twins, and they died. i am so nervous.

                338 1/2 days and counting..... This is the longest I have had one bake in 7 years. And the longest I've watched one. I've been spoiled. I can't even begin to imagine when people post that their horses are at 360+ days. I'd be looking for a gun to shoot myself.

                And Spot, I'm thinking Sunday night or Monday. After calling Alicia on Tuesday night and telling her this is going to be IT.... and it wasn't she told Liz to wait until she got back from Vegas on Sunday. Liz is probably listening. They're all trying to get me back.

                Who took the remote?? I want to change the channel. I want to watch *YOUNG STUD TV* instead!

                Good luck to everyone who is also watching and waiting.

                graystone - no I haven't, I've never done that and have been very lucky with just being able to tell without much watching. I guess I'm due to not have it easy.

                Bugs - next year you get your group together and I'll send you my phone number. Cheating is GOOD!

                stonefieldfarm - believe me those thoughts have gone through my head at times too! This started off as a twin pregnancy and the mare is HUGE! Ask Spot, she saw her last week and couldn't believe how massive she is. All of it just adds to the gut wrenching. I want it over!

                HFSH - 4?? Ouch! Two is enough thanks. Best wishes!!

                  Were on day 353 and mine is in NO hurry to drop this baby. I'm watching the big four-legged potato on webcam right now. I think I'm going to go nuts if she doesn't have it soon!

                  I finally set up a photo album...take a look!

                    I have one at 349 today. She has just started to build some bag and I can barely express a few drops of clear liquid. I would be going crazy if I didn't know that she carried her first two for over 355 days.

                    When I have enough to do a milk test I should have a better idea of how much longer she plans to hang onto her munchkin. I am impatient for this one though as it is my first foal from her. She's a states premium Hanoverian mare in foal to Regazzoni.

                        I know I've mentioned this before, but some lady in WI years ago had a mare go 401 days.

                        She named him 401(k).

                          Only 62 1/2 more days to go to TIE that record! You'd be more of a babbling idiot if you were on foal watch another 2+ months with her

                              Nikita must be propped up in a corner sleeping somewhere ...

                              It is the Elizabeth Victoria mare - Vegas' dam. In foal to Sato. The next mare - Special Lady is next to go. While they were originally about 4 weeks apart, now if Lizzie is 2 weeks late and Carly is 2 weeks early, Carly may well beat her to it, or Nikita will have the 2 foals back to back!

                              What fun!

                              I think Nikita is going to look into a foal cam for next year so she can sleep, and the nice COTH'ers from around the world can watch the monitor for her and call her once the water has broken, and she can get some nice sleep and let others stay up instead!

                              Good plan if it works ...

                                Nikita is at the store buying a baby monitor -- and her mare is probably having the baby while she is gone.

                                Whoops -- I am wrong. Barn Brat is buying the monitor. Where IS Nikita??!!

                                  She's playing on Off Course - on the Canadian Invasion from EMG thread.

                                  Plus - waiting for "2" new arrivals today. I definate, 1 still obviously up in the air!

                                    Perhaps I am a light sleeper, or just lucky. The last foal that I had, I had a baby monitor. I slept through all of the normal horse noises, but when her water broke, it was like an alarm went off.

                                    Now I have a camera. I just sleep in front of the TV with the sound up high, and I am hoping that I will hear her when she becomes restless. I wake up several tmes a night anyways, and just look up at the TV. Sure beats running out to the barn to check everytime!

                                      Nikita wont be back for awhile. Said that mare is VERY uncomfortable and streaming milk right now.
                                      So - one would assume that she will go tonight.

                                      Palomino & white sabino ... palomino and white sabino ... and of course healthy and happy - both the mare AND the foal!

                                      Hopefully the next update will be one with pictures of the new arrival!
