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!

    Anyone else's Corgi a bit obsessive compulsive? My Sally is completely obsessed with fetch, and she'll play it with anything and anyone. Her mom was the same way. The other Corgi's I have fostered have not been that way at all.

    Here is Sally with her favorite toy:

          Food isn't even a top priority for her. It's not that she doesn't love it, Lord knows if the vet tells me one more time that she needs to lose a few, I'm going to scream, but she will always take fetch over food.

            How true, We have 2 Cardigans. Efan who is 12 and Emme who is 7 months. Emme is a distant cousin of Efan, from the same breeder.

                  LOL, I think Tucker has found her pinup corgi! She says "See, I TOLD you we could just be big boned!"

                  And she's obsessed with squeaky toys. Particularly the cloth kind.

                    Ok now I just have to share a picture! Even though I've already shared details. Our family is nearly deaf from the barking and NONE of our outfits are complete without dog fur but they are the best: (from right to left Rosie, Lilly, and Petey aka the BIG man, all red-headed tri's)

                      For all you Corgi lovers, first off, check out www.mycorgi.com I recently stumbled upon it and it is sort of a Facebook for Corgi people. pretty cool!

                      Hopefully this works. Should take you to my photo album at Mycorgi.com.

                        Casey corgi runs jumbo as well - 42-47lbs when trim and fit - more cardi than pem size. Sadly (for Casey, anyway) my Maine Coon male is bigger than him!
                        Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.

                          Well I'm glad to see others have "oversize" corgis. Mine is 32-33lbs at ideal weight... which is technically high according to standards for females.

                            Pems are being bred larger now, and the bigger boned dogs are what is winning in the ring. My biggest male is 47 at slightly heavy and 42 is what most would consider a good weight. My younger male is about 37#, a little longer in the leg and much less bone although not flimsy by any means.

                              My corgi is obsessed with her frisbee. She has a really annoying, especially piercing bark when she wants to play frisbee (which is everytime we go outside). The chi steals it from her all the time though - such a ferocious little dog!

                              I love the photos of the dog jumping the cavalletti - I do that with my dogs and it cracks me up.

                              Monste, your red-headed tri's are adorable! I never heard of them referred to that way but it is a good description! They look so happy.

                              LoriO - thanks for that link to My Corgi!

                              Bluey, they are master shedders as are just about all herding dogs. When I had my rough collie and my corgi together it was tough!

                              MajesticDestiny, I love the name Kona (like Kona Gold the great race mare!) and she is lovely. That is a BIG corgi. I've seen a few. Not to be a jerk as far as wanting designer dogs, but I would have actually liked a mini-corgi if there is such a thing. My Sasha is a bit too big to take everywhere like I do with my Chihuahua. A 12 pounder would be great. I say that, but really I would not advocate any more designer dogs lol.

                                Oh, please, no one tell Tucker 30+ pounds is the new 25 or I'll never get her to exercise more! (She does have the 'spay tummy'.)

                                DMK--a Maine Coon bigger than a 42lbs corgi? That is not a house cat. That's a bobcat with a tail. (Not that size matters. My 17lbs "giant" cat routinely smacks the 40lbs dogs. Why? Because he can.)

                                Eta: Psst, witherbee...unless he's had a sex change, Kona Gold is/was a gelding.

                                  I'm loving the pics!!! I'm propspony on mycorgi.com too if anyone wants to start a COTH corgi group over there, or needs another friend. ;-p There is even a "horse show corgis" group.


                                  Man are these some photogenic dogs or what. I think I'm going "Awww...." over every single picture. :-)

                                        I think you are the 2nd person that I've heard that from. My male is 40lbs. My friend says his head is the size of a german shepard. Next to him, my 25lb female looks like a runt. I've also had people tell me that her confirmation is the 'old' style...her coat isn't as fluffy, smaller delicate head and her legs are a little taller.

                                        You can see their picture in my profile (although they have their dover blankets on).

                                          I walk with a group of people one day a week at a leash-free dog park. We take tennis balls and throw them down the trail as we walk. Both of mine are ball-obsessed, too. Neither of them can outrun the Aussie that is also ball-obsessed - she always gets to the ball first. However, one of mine will just run up on the Aussie and steal it right out of her mouth. Or deliberately run into the Aussie's front end, causing her to drop the ball, then my other Corgi steals the bouncing ball.

                                          Partners in crime, I keep telling you.
