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!

  • Where to get a nice urn for dog's ashes?

    I have googled pet urns and of course lots popped up. Does anyone have any places that they have used and have had good luck with? My Mom had to put her dog down and she just got her ashes back. She mentioned she wants a prettier box than what Zoe is currently in and I told her I would take care of it.

    I hate to buy stuff from sites I don't know much about so I thought I would ask you guys. Thanks!!!

    I thankfully have not had to purchase one recently, but my roommate just got one from By and By memorials. They do really lovely things and I like how theyre beautiful and sentimental without being too formal.

      By and By memorials are lovely. They're kind of expensive (maybe? not sure of what the typical range is... their prices start at $90) but they're quite nice. If you go to their facebook page (if you have an account) you can see more of their work, and the tributes on their page.
      their website byandbymemorials.com is currently really bare, but some pics and info there.

      Good place to start

      Edit- i took too long to post

          I got my dog's urn from 'From Earth to Art". She was great to deal with and did a magnificent job. I had saved some of my dog's hair to use for the urn.

            I just purchased an urn similar to these for my parents' kitty:



            They are local potters from Peninsula, OH and sweet people. When I purchased mine they said that they can do other styles and glazes as well as what they have pictured, just ask.

            They will also handle the ashes for you and seal the container permanently if you wish.

              Whiskey came back in the standard urn for individual cremation which is rather nice, but they also have other urns you can purchase

                I have had 4 Dobermans cremated, and the crematorium supplied the tins that they are now residing in. The fifth Doberman was cremated at a place closer, and his ashes were returned in a bag. I went to a second-hand store and found a tin that was attractive and close to the size of the other four tins. They are now "all" in my china cabinet.

                I'm kind of a "tin-aholic", and I like older, decorative tins. Plus, they work, and you can't beat the price---less than a dollar!

                  The urn used for my mother's best friend (human not dog) was bought at TJ Maxx. A large red and gold extravagent thing. Kind of creepy but it was in her living room for years before she died. It was purpose bought. Undertaker let is slip that she almost didn't fit. I think anything with a lid will work.

                      Urns for pet

                      Amy who owns High Horse Pottery in Pa. makes urns w/the replica of the dog on the lid that are quite nice. Don't know the website off the top of my head but if you google High Horse Pottery you can most likely find it.

                        My kitty's ashes came in a small gold can. In TJ Maxx I found a marble box with a lid in the bath dept. It's part of a set that matched a soapdish and toothbrush holder. It's really pretty and looks less like an urn.

                        My dog's ashes came in a nice dark cherry box. My late horse's forelock is in a small wooden box that I bought unfinished; I stained and varnished it and it looks like a tiny tack trunk.

                          Another option

                          I have put my cats and dogs ashes in ginger jars.
                          They sell them all over and have beautiful colors and designs.
                          TJ Maxx and Tuesday Mornings have great prices.
                          I super glue the top to the jar and place them in the animal's favoritete place in my home.
                          I label the bottom with the contents.
                          I love that they are part of my decor as twisted as that might sound.

                            I was going to suggest Etsy too. There are lots of artists who offer amazing work and who are happy to do custom requests.

                            I never had to buy an urn. My mom was very clear and very direct she did not want her ashes on my bookshelf. As it was I apologized for leaving her ashes in the cardboard box for a year u til I got to the beach to spread them.
