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!

  • Milk is white, mare in labor... He's HERE - PICS!

    I'm watching my maiden Hano who I kept inside today so I can watch her on the camera... She's definately in pre labor and looks to be about 7 min apart, down from 12 when I started documenting... Boy is she getting fiesty in there!

    Wish I had her on mare stare for you all to see!

    I suspect her water's going to break anytime now and I have my bucket of stuff ready to go, keys in the truck (just in case) and all of my friends on stand by as I'm all alone with my 4 year old daughter today... Ugh.

    She's excited too and ready when Mommy's ready (we even had a couple of drills this morning.

    Let's hope it's a success!!!

      Lucky, lucky you .... hope all goes well! How awesome for your daughter. We had to wake ours up ( a little older tho) and get them out there at 3 a.m. in their pajamas. Wonderful family memories.

      Get those little girl meets newborn photos and share.

        I hope she waits until the other two get home from school!!! Not likely by the looks of it though, my eyes are glued to my TV!

        Yeah, I FINALLY get to catch one! My other mare was terribly ellusive and always went while I dozed (or hubby on his watch).

        Looks like she's 5 minutes now...

            OK... back to 7 min, false alarm, lol. Maybe she WILL hold off until the other two are home... That would be wonderful!

            I just wish she'd stop violently rubbing (almost slamming) her booty! Heaven help us if she does it once the feet are out! Then again, as soon as I see the water break I'm running out there!

            Here's a picture of my mare taken a month and a half ago... Yes, she hid the foal well. She tripled in size during the last 3 weeks!

                We were watching my friend's mare all night last year and she keeping rubbing/slamming her tail... rearing up and stomping down... it was so weird. We kept telling her she couldn't just shake out the baby, lol. She settled down that morning thankfully. I'll be curious to see if she acts similarly this year!

                  Ugh... Thunderstorm stopped her around 4:00 PM. She's still in labor just not going to go as quickly as I hoped...

                  So, I took advantage of the time (after the storm passed) and turned her out for a little while, watched her stretch her legs and really tell me what she thinks about all of this, lol... And of course we had some lovey-dovey time... So, it looks like I'm up tonight.

                  And yes, my mare was rearing a little as well! Silly girls aren't they?

                  Mine has been acting silly all week so it'll be nice to finally get this show on the road!

                  NOOOO Don't go talking about the red bag - Eek! I went a clinic last year about problem foalings, I just watched the DVD last night...

                  A friend of mine had one a few years back and thankfully the two survived, though she's been breeding for 20+ years 5-6 mares a year, where as this is only my 5th foal.

                  Thanks all! I'll let you know... Just wish Hubby were here (nice time for a business trip eh?)

                      She may wait until he gets back. Mare IS a 4-letter word.

                        Ain't it the truth!

                        He'll be back LATE Friday night... I don't think she'll wait, lol.

                        Though ya just never know w/ those fair Maidens!

                        Boy, I don't think I was ever so sure of a foaling in my life. How long can she have white milk before foaling (and I mean the final looking stuff)?

                        This just goes to show that maidens have their own set of rules I suppose... I am certainly going to buy a kit in the future.

                          Took a nap, having coffee, lol... She's starting again, we'll see!

                          She actually crouched down, lifted one rear leg and sat on her water bucket. Glad I use heavy duty snaps as I assume she has the wrong idea of what that "water" bucket is used for!

                          Here are a couple of pics I took at feeding time. Please excuse the tail wrap - I have since changed it but it's essentially the same...

                            Ah, finally... Some action again! She's a HOOT right now, you guys would enjoy watching (if anyone was up at this hour)...

                            She's a Hunter bred mare but she's performing some really neat Dressage right now!

                            Ah, sitting on her water bucket again...

                                    We have a Colt!

                                    At 5 AM (on the dot) Gott's Geschenke had a Chestnut colt w/ a blaze and 3 white socks, by Graf Top II!

                                    Shoulder got a little hung up, repositioned the mare and he came right out!

                                    Mare and foal are doing great!

                                    Here are some pictures, I am taking a much needed NAP as he passed his poo-poo!

                                    Wishing everyone a happy and healthy foaling season this year!
