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!

  • Jingles needed for newborn and thanks to a wonderful vet staff at UGA

    Breeding is a tough career choice-no doubt. Last week I had to put to sleep an 11 yr old broodmare that was due in 6 weeks due to cancer.

    Tuesday night at 11:20, we had a very large-150lb- colt, born to our senior 17 yr old broodmare. At first, everything appeared normal. I attended the birth, 25 minutes total with no dystocia obvious. The mare rested for about 15 minutes before standing and breaking the umbilical cord. The colt remained recumbant, but bright and sucking my fingers and everything he could get his mouth on.
    After an hour I milked the mare and bottle fed the colt then left the stall to attend a second foaling down the aisle. ( HEALTHY FILLY)The colt still had not stood at 2 hours old. Both my husband and I tried for over an hour to assit this colt in standing to no avail. Having experienced this before, I started to milk the mare and bottle feed 4 to 8 oz every hour. At 9 hours old, the colt stood with alot of assitance and stumbled around the stall. At this point, I called the local vet out,recognising a "dummy foal syndrome" and requested a referal to UGA. I called my farrier and handyman at home to help carry this colt onto the trailer. My husband rode in the back with mom and son all the way to GA.

    We arrived at UGA at 6 PM(It is a 3+ hour drive from our farm in NC) to be met by a team of Resident, ER Intern and several students with a gurney. Even before the colt was put on the gurney, the mare was given a mild tranq so that she could handle the situation. Events moved at a blinding pace, rolled into the ICU, with IV started, Igg run ( greater than 800 on the snap test)arterial blood pulled, Oxygen started and a complete physical done by two vets and a student all within less than an hour. A course of action was outlined, attending vet contacted, and everything explained to me as it was done. An NG- feeding- tube took some time as the colt, who still had a very good suck reflex, refused to swallow.
    After recieving the bloodwork back with a low Oxygen level and low protien, a bag of plasma was given, antibiotics started and another Blood gas run showing a response to treatment.

    I have recieved at least a twice daily update from the attending and the student assigned to his case, until yesterday when he was moved from ICU to the main hospital. Now, the attending calls once a day. He has been rolled and placed sternal every hour as well as assisted with standing. Yesterday managed to stand a few times on his own. He is still not nursing from his dam as he sticks his tounge out to the side, not centered. His mother is a saint, allows a chair to be placed under her and is milked hourly. His prognosis is good, but today bloodwork showed some luekopenia and there is some concern about septicemia. So far no joint involvement. They will ultrasound the umblicus this afternoon to see if there is an abscess there from laying recombent the first three days. The attending is looking forward to watching this guy walk to the scales on his own tomorrow as his balance is much improved. Enough to run around his dam in the stall.

    Please send your jingles to this guy. We are still trying out names for him. Need a "D"
    Currently liver chestnut with a blaze and three stockings but will grey. By Don Principe out of Windsong. Need something with a music connection as all her foals have composer names or the word "song" in them. Playing with "Dylan" as in Bob or "Daltry" as in Roger. But I usually like something classical but am open to suggestions.

    Forgive the spelling as I am watching two more as I write this and am a bit sleep deprived.

                              I vote for "Death Defying" =]

                              UGA took great care of the OTTB I purchased sight unseen, had shipped to GA, [while I was in school in NJ], and who 3 days later was deathly ill with a colitis infection. They treated him for 10 days, phoning me regularly and informing me that he was flipping his feed bucket over whenever he was hungry -- when it was touch and go decisions as to putting him to sleep.

                              He had an appointment for euth when I was informed about the feed bin flipping, and I begged my mom to go see if he had a spark in his eye still. She wanted to know how she would know, I had no clue having never met him. She called back 3 hours later and said he threw his feed bin at her. With my bank account running out of $$ quickly, they kept him overnight and saw him improve greatly. He's alive now, 2 years later, all because of a hunch.

                              His name is Always the Optimist =]

                                  Hoping he's doing well now. We spoke the morning after his birth. I knew at that time you were optimistic that he was going to stand up by himself later that day. So sorry you had to take him to UGA.
                                  You mentioned the 3 hr trailer ride. I love where I live & never plan to move but if I did it would be to either the Ocala or Kentucky area next door to a great equine clinic!

                                      I'm confident that your colt will be fine.... Jingles nevertheless, but know that he will be ok.
