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!

  • Corgi at SPCA (Montgomery County PA)

    We visited one of the local SPCAs (Montgomery County PA) today and low and behold there was a Pembroke Welsh Corgi. She was turned in a little over a month ago, estimated at 4 years old, spayed red and white female.

    We would have put in an app for her but she is recommended to go to a home without other dogs. Seeing as we have 3 Corgis we couldn't take her home. She was very sweet and in good weight. There has to be someone out there that has room in their home and heart for this little girl. Just wanted to pass the word along to any fellow Corgi lovers or anyone looking for a lifetime of love and entertainment

    I would be more than willing to help with transport if need be. Snapped a few pics of her at the shelter, just shoot me a PM!

    Aww. I'm a corgi person too. Hope she finds a great home with someone who can appreciate her.

      While I would love to take her, I can't but I wanted to let you know that I would be very surprised if she didn't do well in an all Corgi household. I've never met a Corgi that doesn't love another Corgi even if they really don't like other dogs (mine a female included). I am pretty sure Corgis don't look at themselves as dogs hence why they don't mind there own.

      I certainly could be wrong but I've seen it many times.

        So far letting COTHers know about available corgis has been quite successful. Comet is now in a great home because of angels on this board. If you can find a way to post photos here, that will probably help. You can also post the information on The Outside Course BB. My 3 corgis and 2 pug mixes send good wishes for this corgi finding the perfect home.

            Tallyho, how long ago was that? We were at the SPCA just yesterday and she was there in the back half of the kennels. When I inquired about her at the desk I was told they are accepting apps on her but that they couldn't tell me how many (if any) apps she currently has. They asked if I'd like to put in an app but I figured if she doesn't enjoy the company of other dogs that she probably wouldn't enjoy being a permanent part of our family.

            I figured I'd post here in hopes of reaching out to someone that has a more desirable permanent home for her. I'd also be willing to be a halfway point or foster for her if that helped her out. She did seem very sweet albeit somewhat overwhelmed with the excitement at the shelter (barking, dogs moving around, etc). when approaching the front of the cage she gave us that Corgi smile that melts my heart and leaned right up against the gate waiting for pets.

            Thanks for the thoughts and hopes everyone! I've heard this board works some magic and I hope we can help Kay-Dee find a happy place of her own!

                    Called the shelter today to check in on her and she is still there. I was told again that she is recommended to go to a home where she will be the only dog. I was also told that they do not foster out dogs and one local rescue I've been in contact with told me that the MontCo SPCA doesn't really work with rescues.

                    Again, I would be willing to help with transport, midway point or even food to get her started. She really was super sweet to us on Saturday and I can't stop thinking about her! Someone has to be looking for their one and only!

                      She is so cute. Out here (PNW) corgis are rarely found on petfinder/rescues/shelters. If they do come up, they find homes quickly.

                      Hope this girl finds a good home soon! Over a month in the shelter .
