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.

    Mine do that all the time. Isn't it amazing how fast they can right themselves when startled? It's like they do a flip in the air and land on their feet.

    Okay, finally I get it. Corgis are just cats in a dog suit.

      How nice for you! He rolls in the grass! Mine go straight for the chicken poop.

        I've had corgis for most of my life. I have one now, Reese, and she is too smart for her own good. She thinks she is my assistant trainer and must help if the ponies are going too slow or if a horse stops at a jump.

          the reason why I took pictures (as opposed to chasing after him with a bottle of shampoo) was because we were at an A show with immaculately groomed grass on the hill next to the rings. Such pictures of corgi-rolling at home/barn do not exist because they come with cursing and shampoo chasing (along with me being late to wherever because the ONLY time he does it is when I don't really have time to bathe him!)
          Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.

            I have a corgi and he was my first. I've had him for almost 6 years and I don't think I could ever live without a corgi in my life again. Toby is pretty sure he finally got me trained just the way he likes He has taken obedience class, taught the trainer about corgis, and still managed to pass. I wouldn't trade him for anything. Here is a pic of my boy.

              My roommates call my two "The grossest dogs in the world" I would argue except... they think that a fresh pile o'chicken poop is a delicacy, mud puddles are for wallowing and this morning I had to remove Whiskey from the fresh cat pee dirt she was trying to roll on. Corgis- pig shaped for a reason.

              DMK I've ALWAYS wanted a fluffy! Your last pic in the grass looks a lot like the fjord with no name that someone posted on here.

                Loves my Corgi-Porgi-Punkin-Pie (not her real name, just an alias) who was adopted from the shelter as a scrawny cardigan pup and has blossomed into the smartest tubby dog around! She cannot do anything that doesn't make me laugh and has even "howled" at me on occasion. My first Corgi, but not my last!
                Bless her stubby little popeye arms!

                  Oh this is a serious thread.

                  I was going with:

                  Once you go corgi, you're hearing is never the same, from the constant, incessant barking.

                  Once you go corgi, you never walk the same from tearing your acl while tripping over the furry little speedbumps who are always underfoot.

                  Once you go corgi you get used to the bottoms of your pants always being torn from the constant ankle nipping.

                  I've lived with corgis owned by family and roomates. It is honestly the last breed of dog I would ever own, lol. But glad you all love them!

                    haha! Shun the non-believer!!! Shuuuuunnnnn!!! ;-p

                    LOL. Well, mine don't bark all that much and the ankle biting really is pretty much non-existant. But... they are definitely furry, speed-bump, tripping hazards. I joke all the time that I need this mug:

                      Hubby says he is a-ok with having at least 3 (plus one lab) lol. Labby is still a puppy so next corgi pup will be awhile away, but still can't wait for the day I'm greeted at the door by a herd of corgis!!
                      Edited to add: Mine also doesn't bark that much (only when someone knocks/rings the doorbell or if there is a squirrel in the backyard. I also don't think I've ever had her nip my ankles. Tripping hazard... well yes, but I seem to have this issue with all breeds.

                            Love my girl Sasha Belle. She is a riot - a real little clown. Friends call her either "the Little General" or "the Queen Mum".

                            Yes, she is obese - one of our excercise riders was feeding her hostess donuts and I didn't realize until she blew right up. Checked her thyroid and everything before I caught him. Now I just can't seem to get the weight off of her, even though she is very active.

                            Here she is with my whole pack - she and the chihuahua are best buds!

                            alien upside-down corgi with Oscar the cat - her usual position

                            Roaming Knome - just needs the red hat!

                            Talking - the corgi trait!

                            Here is her photo bucket album - she's such a pretty girl. PUPPY pictures at the bottom - nothing as cute as a corgi pup!

                                I am a recent Corgi convert. I don't believe I will ever own another breed of dog! This is Gunior:

                                    The characteristic way that corgis seem to be stubborn crack me up. There are plenty of breeds that will just sort of do what they want despite handler protests, but many of the corgis I've known go one further and do the following:

                                    handler gives command (I've seen this happen a lot with "come")
                                    dog looks at the handler and acknowledges that a request has been made...
                                    and then the dog just keeps doing whatever it was they were doing before.

                                    The "well, I hear you, I'm not really feeling doing that for you right now" look cracks me up every time.
                                    This is a perfect explanation of my two corgis. Perfect example is one day, I took them out for a long walk in the hay fields and Tigger was madly running and smelling everything and had no intentions of stopping anytime soon. After about 30 minutes, Molly just started to head back to the barn and her spot in front of the fan. I called her and called her (she normally is attached to my side), halfway to the barn she paused, looked over her shoulder at me, and continued to head back to the barn! And it endeared her to me all the more.

                                    When the corgi won the dog vs cat contentst on gawker.comSomeone commented that they thought they were weird dogs because they were big long dogs in little dog legs...a juxtaposition like an el camino (half truck half car). Or maybe, they are a mullet hairdo- party in the back, all busines in the front!

                                    My friend got me hooked when she got a corgi puppy. she is so adorable. She found a corgi rescue ( a tri) for me that needed a home and Molly proved herself to be the perfect dog, a total dog to go. Which convinced me that I needed TWO corgis. I got another rescue (a red/white). I have shoveled so much money into Tigger trying to train him and get him healthy. He's spoiled rotten, totally naughty, and completely irresistible.

                                    I am obsessed with these dogs...if you can't tell!

                                      I have gone to the dark side too. I have two corgi boys still at home with me. Sammy was a rehome from the give away board here on CoTH. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...b&id=641049775
                                      He is 11 now and doing awesome.

                                      Bernie is 2 and was bred by my late friend. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...5&id=641049775

                                      My other corgi Moxie is now living with my friend, MajMeadowMorgans in TN and running her horse farm and is the store dog where she works. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...d&id=641049775

                                      My latest dog is not a corgi, but that's because it would be really hard to make a corgi in to a service dog for all the above reasons. I can't really wait for a corgi to decide if I really meant I needed help now or not.

                                        The Tribble is a sable Pembroke. She was my 40th birthday present to myself, and seven years later I still wonder what the hell I was doing. She is SO obnoxious! Being cute is the only thing that saves her!

                                        I love her but I don't think I'd ever get another one.

                                          I am allergic to dogs, especially bad to some, like short guard hairs and lots of down, like corgis.

                                          A friend got a corgi, then a second one and I could not walk in his house any more without sneezing and my eyes swelling shut and he kept a very clean house.
                                          Same with some sporting dogs and GSD.

                                          Corgis are top shedders, as are ACD's, both some of my favorite breeds I can't have.

                                          Glad to see all of your corgis, they are awesome.
