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!

        Jingling for you. Who is your filly by?

          Blueskidoo are you in my neck of the woods? and did Lauren help you today? If so the vets called me first today by mistake (my number and Laurens are very similar) they didn't say what it was concerning, but then I got a few calls from friends wondering if one of my mares where in trouble.

          I hope both your mare and foal make a 100% recovery good luck and keep us updated.

          Seems there has been one too many C sections this year-very scary

                    Jingles for your mare and filly.

                    It's so good that you were able to get the mare to the hospital in time. When you noticed the filly was presented wrong, what did you do to help stop labor? Get the mare up and walking till you could load her? Also, how long was the trip ?

                            big old TEXAS *JINGLES* for your mare and filly. That sounds VERY scary!


                            • Original Poster

                              Thanks for the jingles! I'll be off to see them later this morning. They didn't call last night, so things must be OK so far.

                              Pintofoal- Yup, that was me. Lauren was amazing, I couldn't have done it without her. (and we never met before that!)

                              The foal is by PWynnnorman's now deceased Theodore. A really special foal to say the least, out of a very special mare.

                              The story goes like this...

                              I'd been having a bad feeling the last couple weeks, though everything was still within normal limits, I just couldn't shake it off.

                              Mare lays down, I know she's going to foal. I go down to check on her, nothing has really started to happen, so I glove up and reach in, and there is all this pink tissue in the way. I'm thinking "oh my god, it's a red bag" but the tissue was pink. I feel around a bit more and find an opening and grab two feet and pull them through. The feet are pointed up.

                              I'm on the phone with the vets office in seconds, "foal is breech!" get the mare to her feet and stand her frond end down hill. Vet's office calls back and says, vet is an hour away, but we have called someone in your neighborhood to come help you. Lauren arrives in less than 10 minutes, and stickes her hand in the mare. she holds the foal back and I run for the truck and trailer and we take off to Morvan park. Lauren rides in the back of the trailer and pushes the foal down as hard as she can to keep the mare from pushing. (While I was getting the trailer she figured out that it wasn't breech, it was on it's back and the neck was deflected.)

                              We get to morvan park, and the vet starts telling me my options, and I was like "what is my best chance for a live mare and foal at the end" He says C section, I say "then do that!" They take the mare away and at about 3:15 the foal was born. Approx an hour and 20 minutes from the mare laying down.

                              It was amazing, and terrible to see my poor mare on her back with her innards hanging out while the vets struggled to get the foal out (she really is huge) and then they sewed her back up. The surgen found a tumor on her intestians, a lypoma? she said these fatty toumers can eventually strangulate the intestians and cause colic, so she took it off. Good for her!

                              So now we wait and see if the mare is ok, and the foal doesn't take to much of a dip at 12 hours, apparently these foals usually suffer a bit of backsliding in their condition at that time. And the mare has to pass the placenta, they are going to work on that this morning, the mare tried to prolapse her uterous on the table, so she wanted to give things a bit of time to settle down before she gives her oxytocin. So we know that could prove a tricky complication.

                              Thanks so much fpr all the jingling! They really need it.

                              I hope this story helps someone else.

                                  Yes, lipoma, that can turn into a strangulating lipoma which is how I lost my TB 6 months ago
