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!

  • Oh No-Brittany Dog Rescue

    Work friend talked to someone in Wytheville who fosters Brittany Spaniels.
    Oh no.
    Crap. That's only an hour away.

    You get the general idea, COTH enablers.

    I'll let DH lull himself into complasiantsy (sp?????????-geez I need more coffee) for awhile before I broach the subject of a Brit.

          3 dog - could you please PM me the info? Our oldest Britt most likely will go this fall and that leaves one. Of course no one can have just one Britt ;-) I would love to see what they have and keep it in mind.

          Thanks!

              *sits up and blinks after passing out from cute overload* Darn you S1969!

              My little wild child foundling Brittany is coming along. He's now in the fenced yard getting along with all the other dogs. He wears a collar and walks on a leash. And last night he was even persuaded to come into the house for a few minutes!

              I contacted both the rescues in my "What do Brittanies hunt?" thread. Both had lots of dogs available!

                  Oh, forgot to mention - Jamie has the most horse sense of any dog I've ever seen. Won my grey QH who has to be kept alone because he hates other animals right over the second day.

                  My LGD cross still mashes him into the ground with his paws but Jamie accepts it with good grace. The girl dogs all lurve him.

                  And the cats just walked right up to him and gave him nose kisses.

                  If all Brittanies are like Jamie I can't imagine why they're not like corgis and JRTs and a fixture at every horse barn.

                  Y'know. Not that I'm trying to enable you or anything.

                    Yes...notice how I grabbed the camera instead of scolding him? Obviously we've slacked on the whole "discipline" thing with this one.....he's a 3rd child though. We're more like grandparents now.

                    My boys have good horse sense, I think. Although the puppy (now about 17 months old) would "travel" if not supervised, so he's not really allowed out off leash around the barn. (He gets plenty of off leash runs, but I like to keep a closer eye on him in case he sees a deer, turkey, etc.) But my older guy is allowed free range of the farm and is very smart around the horses. He basically stays out out of the paddock unless they are not around and is very respectful of their size.

                      She is 13 years old now, hard of hearing, but still the best dog ever.

                          Great, this is Jacky. He is 14 this year, arthritic, yet still full of life. He is my DH's heart & soul. We lost his littermate last Mother's Day (2010). He is a great dog, loves to hunt & is a great family dog.

                              There's a problem with being on the dining room table? Really? But that's where the cookies are....

                              There's a problem with being in the dishwasher? Really? I"m helping clean up the crumbs.

                              There's a problem being in the car? Really? But that's where the leftover burgers and fries are.

                              I"m a problem no matter where I am? Really? But I'm a JRT. You must understand, y'know. I'm JUST SAYIN'

                                Haha, I hadn't even noticed. We live in a log cabin so everything is that color!!!

                                That particular night he was on the table because there was cat food on the counter (trying to keep it where he couldn't eat it)

                                But he often gets on the table just to look out the window (the best spot in the house!)
