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!

  • Thoughts? Opinions? Enabling?

    I have a JRT and a Daschund that live in my house. The Daschund does not really fit into the household well because he sleeps 23 hours out of the day and we like to go out and do stuff on the farm. He doesn't bother anything, I just feel bad because he gets left home alone a lot. He is upset that he doesn't get to go, but after about 2 minutes outside, he cries to go back in, so he would be unhappy if we made him hike for 30-45 minutes as well. I kind of feel like it's a no-win situation for him. Ideally, he would be perfect for an elderly couple that wanted a little dog to sleep in their lap all of the time as that is what he wants to do. Anyway, since I'm considering finding the Daschund a new home, I have been looking for something a bit more compatible with mine and my JRTs lifestyle to be his companion.

    I had been thinking about getting another JRT when I stumbled across this girl for free today and thought about calling to see if she's been spayed and find out a bit more info on her. The ad says she's 2-3 months and a JRT. I don't really think she's JRT though because she seems tall for 2-3 months, but idk, maybe a mix. What says COTH???

    If the ears stand up, she may be rat terrier, or a mixture of both JRT and RT.

    Either way, what does it matter?
    A companion dog doesn't need to be any specific breed or mix, just a dog that appeals to you and fits in your family.

    That one looks like a lovely lady, why not go see if her personality is also lovely?

      I'm dithering on getting another dog because then I will have 3 dogs in the house until I find a good home for the Daschund and I wouldn't want a dog much larger than my current JRT who, while not a shorty, would appear to be about this dog's size now and she's said to be 2-3 months. If she's going to get too much larger, I would pass on her.

      Something about her looks Schnauzer-ish (making up my own words!)..lol. Not her broken coat, but the shape of her head?

        She looks like a Jack to me. Some have long legs, some are more cobby.

        Is your other Jack a male or a female? If you already have a female I would NOT bring another female into the house under ANY circumstances.

        If the pup you posted photos of is only 2-3 months old she is really too young to be spayed so I wouldn't even worry about that. I would be more concerned that she has had age appropriate vaccinations and been dewormed several times.

        Why is she free? Where did they get her? She looks like a nice little dog.

        I do not see any reason to not re-home the Dachshund if he does not fit into your lifestyle. Just make sure you vet the new home and it is a good one.

          Oh gees, I can't believe I typed spade instead of spayed, bloody hell I have lost my mind.

          I was thinking they could spay at 6 weeks or was that 6 months? I've only ever owned 1 female dog and she was spayed around 8 years ago, so I forget how old. Did I mention I've lost my mind?

          The ad also had another dog, a husky, saying that it was dumped. When they spoke of the JRT, they said she was sweet several times and high energy, so I'm thinking she's a JRT and maybe doesn't fit into their lifestyle due to the energy, but that is something I would ask about.

          I will definitely vet any new home for the Daschund (Hunter). He was found wandering an industrial park by some friends years ago. When they couldn't locate his owner, my mom took him, and then he came to live with me, so making sure he doesn't slip through the cracks again is important to me.

              That Daschund is so unique looking! I love it!! Would love to be able to give him a nice home, but I can barely handle my little pooch :-)

                Oh my gosh! Except for the ears (Dale's stand straight up), she looks just like my ACD/JRT mix...I'm going to try to go find a picture of Dale and figure out how to post it here . Same, exact coloring, complete with the single, spotted ear. How big is this dog at 2-3 months? Dale is 14 years old and 42 lbs. She is the best and worst dog I've ever had, I love her soooo much. Best work ethic ever and super smart...downside is the same, needs to work and super smart .

                I think you should go get that dog .
