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!

  • Request for help & jingles ..... Pottsville, PA area

    A friend of mine mare foaled Sunday AM. The foal is a bit of a dummy foal and is needing help getting up and being fed around the clock. The vet has been out and he is being taken care in that way.

    My friend is exhausted dealing with the foal, her young kids and some other issues. Her parents are doing all they can to help as well, but she could still use some help.

    I live in Oregon and unfortunately unable to help. I know in the past COTH members have helped other breeders out. I was hoping that possibly someone lives in the Pottsville, PA area and would be willing to help my friend with the foal so she could clean up and get some rest.

    If anyone is willing please PM me for her name and information.

    Thanks so much!
    Monique

    UPDATE:
    Foal's IgG was around 450. He received a bag of plasma this morning as well as a couple antibiotics. Still having trouble getting up and needs help. He is interested in nursing and does latch on.

    This afternoon his blood work came back with elevated white bloods cells. His Temp was 102. I was told that he got up a bit easier this afternoon.

    Any help is greatly appreciated! My friend really has her hands full with a 10 month and a 24 month old kids.

    Thank you!!

    Too far away to help in person, but am sending jinglessssssss for your friend and her foal. Hopefully she will be able to get some help caring for the foal soon. Has anyone in the area contacted a local pony club, or riding stable that might have some teenage girls who can help?

        Oh, I wish I was closer but I am west of Pittsburgh - wrong side of the state. As a Mom of 4 I know how hard it can be to juggle kids and horses, and a sick one (child or equine) can really throw a monkey wrench into the works. All the best, and mega mega JINGLES for that foal and your friend. Thank you so much, Tattered Daydreamer, for stepping up to help. Paying it forward and all that, karma will repay you.

          Update

          Good News!

          I just talked with my friend and she said the colt is starting to get up on his own. He needs help most of the time but he has gotten up on his own. Temp was 101.6 last night. Did talk to the vet and they did give him a another antibiotic to be on the safe side.

          Keep the jingles coming

          Thanks in adavance!

                    Thank you for all your support and jingles! They are greatly appreciated!!!

                    Just received an update this morning. The foal has gotten up a couple more times on his own and immediately goes to nursing. Heather, my friend, had to go into work so her Mom is trying to watch over things but won't be able to get him up if he needs help so let's hope he keeps getting up on his own. Her Dad is going to try to make it the barn at lunch to help get him up if he needs to.

                    I am jingling like crazy so he keep on this good path.

                    Thank you so much to appdream & Tattered Daydreamer for being willing to help!

                          Hi Silver Sport Horses,

                          It's been so sweet of you to coordinate all the helping efforts for Jump Start! Do you have the knowledge of how to get a pic posted of his cute face on this thread?

                              Excellent news

                              Excellent news that he is getting up on his own now. Whew!! We were really keeping our fingers crossed AND PRAYING that he wouldn't end up like our sweet little guy last year.

                              Thanks for the pics. What an adorable face he has and really cool markings!

                                      I'm so pleased to hear the latest report. I'll still send jingles and positive thoughts for continued improvement. We had a "dummy" born in 1999 who failed to stand and nurse for the first 3 days. We bottle fed every 2 hours for 3 days. On the 3rd day, he got up and looked around, shook himself and walked over and latched on. That was the greatest sucking sound ever in my memory!
