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!

  • Blue merle doxie-oops! Merry Christmas to me!

    I stopped by our local pound today to wish Merry Christmas to the lady who is in charge of it. That really was my intention.
    However, what am I supposed to do when I got lost, went in the wrong door, and surprise surprise-I was in the dog kennel part. As I tried to escape, there was the little doxie girl wagging her tail at me? Sooooooo, she comes home on the 22nd and I am researching German names.
    Does DH know? Well, not yet....

      Hah, I would've caved too! Congrats...

      The dachshunds in "The Ugly Dachshund" by G.B. Stern (hilarious little book from 1938--highly recommended!) all have German names... the lady hunds are Elsa, Erda, Eva, and Sieglinde.

                  I have a friend that raises those, blue merle with half or all blue eyes too.

                  She can't keep any puppies, as she intends, because people line up to buy them and practically mob her for them.

                  They are very cute.

                  I like Heidi, but generally dogs name themselves, just wait and it will come.
                  Since you are getting her around Christmas, how about Merry, if she is a happy little dog and it fits her?

                  Pictures would help ...

                      I suggest to NOT pick a German name! I work at a vet and we see so many with the same generic name! So many Named Fritz, Helga, etc....

                      Some of my favorites though: my dapple dachsie was named Disco

                      One family had 3 there names were Oscar, Meyer and Hoagie. Which are all pretty generic, but their last name was Bacon

                      For German names: Bismark, Rommel

                      We had one come in named "Jaws". He was a land shark.

                      I also had one named Groovy.

                      And have a double dapple who is mostly white ( rescued this genetic mutant) and is name is Zero. He is named after the ghost dog In the Nightmare before Christmas.

                      I am very jealous! I want a weenie puppy now! Lisa

                        Her name at the pound is Bell, but our pony is named Belle, and I prefer to do away with the "prison" name when she comes home. For some reason, the name Willow is sticking with me. But yes, she will most likely name herself.
                        Actually, she is really more like a blue roan, not merle, now that I think about it.
                        Weenies are so easy-Noodles, our first one, hardly ever barks. She does like to bring in smushed mouses, however. Blech. :-)

                          At least you are not collecting great danes...

                          My grandmother bred dachsies way back when...I am actually named after one, though my mom denies it: Dog was there first, then I came along, need I present more proof?

                            We got out first wiener dog in August as a pup. LOVE him! They are so funny - Frank talks to us all the time. There isn't a day that goes by that we don't laugh at something Frank does. <3

                            Here's a video of one of our conversations.

                            I would like to think I will die an heroic death...

                            But it's more likely I'll trip over my dog and choke on a spoonful of frosting.

                                She would still be considered a dapple. BUT be VERY CAREFUL, like potato chips, you can't have just one!!! Thank you for rescuing her!!!

                                    Congrats! My mom always wanted to name a female Doxie "Schatzie".

                                    They lost their mini wirehaired male at the ripe age of 17 two years ago. Here's a picture of him, just a few months before: http://a2.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot..._6713103_n.jpg

                                    Wonderful, tenacious dogs, smart as a whip.
