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!

  • Jingles for my Jack

    Bug is at Tufts! I'm awaiting his ultrasound results. He's been there for 24 hours and they don't seem to know what's wrong, which I hate. Worried.

    Jingles for my Little Man?!? Thx.

    Big-time Jack jingles for the Bug....He's in very good hands. What's up with him?

    Bug (as in DoodleBug) is one of my puppies 3 main names, the others being Birdie and Nuttier, as in P-Nuttier, since she wasnt just Peanutty, she was nuttier. She knows all three, smart girl.

    Jingles from a Bug to a Bug!

          Bug Update

          Alright, Bug has had surgery to remove a piece of what turned out to be a tennis ball. He had a partial blockage in his small intestine. His sister is a Golden for whom carrying a ball around is like breathing. He has been visited by the entire family tonight, brought his lovies and thoroughly snuggled. He cannot come home until Sunday which totally bums us out but needs to be.

          Okay, names. We let the kids name most things. The horses have proper show names but wouldn't know them if called.

          Love Bug - the super sweet JRT
          Goldilocks - the super sweet Golden
          Snoopy - the black & white Paint
          Micky Mouse - ISH named Mick over there (16.3 and the girls call him Mouse - LOL!)
          Pumpkin - the neon orange Welsh pony
          Fluffy - the puffy haired hamster

          Hopefully all goes well from here and he comes home soon. He has some girls that seriously want to baby/nurse him back to health.

          Thanks for the jingles!

              Jingles for a speedy and uneventful recovery for the Love Bug! I suspect he's getting lots of love from the techs at Tufts--who could resist a Jack named BUG??? Doggie prayers out to you.

                Yes, we are going to have to come up with a new fetish for Goldie. I think we'll try all frisbee first. They are 2nd to the tennis ball in her mind and are about to become her only option. Too bad, give me a racquet or lacrosse stick and I can wear her out in 15 mins. I guess my frisbee skills will improve.

                Also yes, a cute little JRT seemed to be the center of attention at Tuft's. The master of his domain - just like home - perfect! If only it was a bit quieter, equipped with 2 warm bodies, a king size bed and his favorite Ariat blankie. Hope he can fall asleep with out Chelsea Lately on. He'll also be dejected at the thought of mere dog food while in the hospital. What do you mean no mix-ins?!?

                I'll have to find the tennis ball thread. Maybe Bug's scary story ought to be added. I remember Oprah had a Golden choke on one a few years ago and die. It crossed my mind every once in a while but just thought it was one of those bizarre things. I've had Golden's obsessed with tennis balls my entire life with no problem but...

                Anyway, thanks again for the jingles.

                    Sending jimgles for Bug. He should be OK now that the surgery is over. I'll bet he is a tough little bugger. :-)

                    We have a policy of always taking the tennis ball back after play and training and storing them away. We have 3 Dobes that love the ball and would chew it up very easily. You would have to be very dilligent though.

                      Could it be anywhere other than New Joisey??? We got terrorists, we got Housewives, we got Snookie...a ride up the NJ Turnpike must've been the impetus for the moniker. I can always smell when I'm close to home

                      On the other hand, we got Gladstone, we got the Horse Park, we got the Jersey Shore-actually, I guess that one should be in the previous list.

                      What were your other choices? There have to be 2 armpits-- I cant think of another state that comes close, and I'm perversely proud of that

                      How's the Bug?

                        You are too funny. My DH was thinking Gary, Indiana. I was thinking Arizona. Sorry Arizona folks but I had the worst trip of my life...

                        Bug is alright. He needs to eat to come home. He won't eat for them, especially since they are sticklers for no people food. I got him to eat 1/2 a can yesterday and am hoping they got the other 1/2 down later.

                        Crossing my fingers for a positive morning update call and the go ahead to coming home. Mentally he'll do SO MUCH better at home with his harem doting on him!

                              So happy to hear your dear Bug will be coming home today!

                              Our dog loves the "Dental Kong toy with rope" (sorry, don't know how to post an image and/or link yet). She's on her 3rd one and takes it everywhere!
                              Life is short. Hug your horse!
