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!

She miraculously survived, and obviously wasn't too traumatized considering she then sprawled across my text book purring.

    It wasn't the first time she's been scribbled on, taped, or stickered. It won't be the last.

    SEE!?!?! This proves it, children that scribble on dogs are SCAREY and turn into CAT MOLESTERS! That cat wasn't purring it was obviously SHRIEKING FOR HELP.

    Instead, cats should be treated like children:

      Good Lord... apparently the daily goings on in the Minon household should have all my animals yanked and sent away to much happier homes. Either that or DD will clearly turn into the female version of Ted Bundy.

        Your son BULLDOZED your cat and you don't see what's wrong with that??? I'm calling PETA!


        As an aside, anyone else enjoy that PETA and PITA are pronounced the same way?

          My little brother and I bingo dabbed our border collie as kids (she was red and white) We made her red and green. She lived another 12 years after, I don't think it had any lasting effects!
          We had a Christmas dog until spring when she shed out!

            I'm embarrassed to admit that Brenda Breyer sometimes rode my childhood cat. Cat was unimpressed but lived to be 17, so he survived my elementary-school Breyer obsession without long-term damage.

              Old ladies dye their poodles to match their own pink or blue hair. Horses with sparkle crap on their feet or being painted to look like zebras for Halloween dress up...oh the humanity!

              What I find ghastly is babies with pierced ears/earrings or studs through their noses...now that's abuse for no reason.

                        My mom loves to tell this story.

                        When I was about 4 I was playing with our Irish Setter in the other room and came in crying and saying that Paddy bitten me. My mother, knowing the dog and knowing me asked "What were you doing?"

                        My response was "All I was doing was putting my fingers down her throat!".

                        My 13 year old JRT is having a very hard time escaping my 1 year old son. She does what she can to endure his "petting" (read: slapping) and when she's done she leaves. Only now he follows her. Poor dog who isn't allowed on the furniture has taken to jumping up on the couch and hiding at the back. I can't get mad at her. There is a reason her bed, food, water and sanctuary are placed behind a baby gate.

                        Not all animals are made to put up with children, but the ones who are have high seats in heaven, for sure.

I do think that it is always very important to supervise kids and dogs because kids can inadvertently hurt dogs - and to prevent kids from sitting on or "riding" dogs, which I've heard can cause serious injuries.
                          If it really was sharpie it won't wash out. It will go away when the hair eventually sheds out but sharpie is permanent. If it was magic marker that will wash.

                            I hope when you see your kid bothering the old dog, you remove kid or dog. As the owner, you owe it to both to keep them safe. And kids CAN learn to pat gently.

                            *This may have come out more harsh than intended, but I hate to think a good natured old dog, that is most likely getting stiffer with age is being slapped and forced to put up with a kid being rough. Too often you hear about a dog biting a kid, and the parent says "She's never done that before!" and then they want to get rid of, or euth the dog.

                              Of course I do. And we work on patting gently. They are never together unattended. He's getting it. She's quite fond of his ball throwing abilities.

                              No offense taken to the tone, I understand.
