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!

  • Puppy Pictures! Also, what am I?

    So, this is Stella. She came from a foster mom, and now lives with my boyfriend and I getting spoiled.

    This was her first beach day! Loved the seaweed, and the yummy crunchy lobster shell, lol. Had a blast, and she's currently passed out on the floor with said boyfriend, snoring.

    She's 46lbs. and about 22" long from the base of her neck to the base of her little nubbin of a tail. Any ideas as to what she might be?


    Look at the legs on her!



    What a vicious "pit bull"


    I guess it looks like lots more beach walks are in our future!

    I would think she might be a boxer/pitbull cross....boxer body, pitbull head.
    What you allow is what will continue.


    • Original Poster

      That's what I'm leaning to, as well. Forgot to add, she's about 6 months old. Although, will boxers or pit bull-types "point" if they smell something interesting? I've watched her do this a few times now...lol. The docked tail would make a bit more sense if she had boxer. I have no idea why she had her tail docked? I'm kind of glad, it saves me from the "happy tail" woes, haha.

        SO CUTE !!!

        boxer/great dane/mastiff/pittie/ mix.


        • #5
          First head picture, I thought pit bull, then body pictures, mix with great dane.
          Later pictures, maybe other there, but still pit bull head characteristics, although the other head picture looks more dane to me.

          Interesting someone saw boxer, that is also possible.

          With mixes, you have to wait until they are full grown sometimes and even then breed/s are just a guess.

          Whatever is there, she is all wonderful.


          • #6
            I def think boxer mix. The mix... well... pit?... I also thought weimaraner when I first saw the long legs and nub tail and the gray(?) coloring

              The more you look, the more confusing it gets! The shelter said AmStaff/Great Dane, but they probably said AmStaff instead of Pitt so she would get adopted quicker. I do see Great Dane sometimes, especially since I know a Dane/Black Lab mix that has very similar facial expressions. As well as both being really sloppy drinkers, lol!

              Either way, I love asking people what they see in her. She is soooo smart, I've had her a week, and she knows her sit, down, look-at-me, paw, and her name. the clicker really helped her focus, and she figured that out in no time. We pretty much saw the picture, and went and got her.

              She likes the horses, LOVES kids, and wants to play with all dogs and cats that she encounters. :-) Farts out loud, too...

                Pittie for sure, boxer and maybe Whelm


                • #9
                  I'm agreeing with the other posters, looks like pit, dane, weimeriner (sp?), maybe some boxer.

                  By the way, those are fantastic photos!

                    boxer/great dane.

                    I think she is adorable whatever she is!
                    I love cats, I love every single cat....
                    So anyway I am a cat lover
                    And I love to run.

                      She is gorgeous! Congrats. Beautiful pictures.
                      Every one of them had that look of a girl infatuated with horses, the happy, fated look of a passenger setting sail on the Titanic.

                        I would gues she's a 4-way
                        boxer, dane, pibble & ???
                        or maybe both parents were pibble mixes ...
                        Don't see any weim.
                        She's a lovely friendly pup now but do be watchful as she matures (2-3yrs) if she retains that lovesotherdogs attitude or becomes slightly wary, a little less outgoing.


                        • #13
                          She's just beautiful, whatever she is! But please get her a new collar. You are about to lose that one, and perhaps her, too.


                          • #14
                            adding my agreed opinions to the dane/boxer options......those legs......lol..go on forever!
                            she is just lovely, and looks as though she got the best of whatever mixes are in there.........beauty,stoutness,short hair,short tail, and an affinity for FUN!

                            a WINNER......

                            and wow, such gorgeous pics!


                            • Original Poster

                              Thanks so much! I know about the collar, she's outgrown it in the week we've had her! So now I get to get her a new one, whoo! Right now she's laying on the floor, waiting for my father to feed her some waffles, haha. She is also THE cuddliest dog I've EVER met.

                                Don't know for sure, but I'd say pit for sure somewhere in there! The gray/blue color is probably from that vs. a weim. She's gorgeous! It's funny you mention the "pointing" thing, because my pit pointed this morning at a squirrel in the yard :-)

                                  I don't see any weim at all. Even the coloring is too blue for a weim. I definitely see pit bull, and maybe boxer? The boxer would give her the long legs and lean build, and the pitbull would give her the blue coloring and the muscle. I can see both breeds in the (adorable) face.

                                    Loud farting = boxer , for sure ! LOL ! The boxer we had as a kid farted so loud she would wake herself up from a dead sleep ! Of course as kids we thought this was hysterical ...

                                      That was my first thought too. I was thinking maybe a bit of lab in there too.

                                        My first thought was a pitt/cane corso mix.
                                        she has a... larger... head than a pittie, i think? Its hard to tell from pics.

                                        she is SUPER cute whatever she is.
