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 comes home today at 4:30! Whooo!

      As per ZuZu's request:

      She may be a cranky, fat corgi... but she's MY cranky, fat corgi!

      She's very multi-cultural too!

          How is Miss Whiskey doing??
          Not all who wander are lost.

            Miss Whiskey is a whole new dog! She was *so* happy to see me! She immediately flopped right over on her back for tummy rubs, and she is tri-podding it like Mario Andretti! Apparently, this morning before the clinic opened, she got out of her cage, pushed through the double swinging doors, high-tailed it to the break room, and when they caught up to her, she was trying to jump up on the sofa to get to the plate of cookies I had made for everyone yesterday, on the table behind it.

            It's hard to keep a good (read determined) corgi down!

            They said she was one of the most well behaved (and apart from the cookie incident) well trained dogs they've had!!! (YAY!!) When she left everyone in the hospital had to come and give her kisses.

            Here is a picture of the corgi condo I built for her today. This is her sister Bailey modeling it for me!

            She's currently all curled up in the crate/bed happy as a lark. :-)

              So glad to hear she is home and on the mend!


              • #47
                What a fantastic setup! And I'm SO SO SO happy to hear she is perked back up and raring to go! Isn't it amazing how fast they rebound? Hugs and scritches to Miss Whiskey and a big pat on the back to you for making it through ! (we all know it's harder on us than on them, right?!)

                  Sounds like Whiskey is feeling much better now. I'm sure she's so glad to be home with you. And needless to say, I know that you're more than happy to have her home.

                  Her little "condo" looks quite comfy. One suggestion though, when you're not able to be watching her, you should probably keep her in a smaller area. (This is what my vet had me do with my little guy after his FHO surgeries). You don't want any excessive, or the wrong type of movement/activity to cause her to damage the surgical repair.

                  Has your vet given you a timetable for her physical therapy/rehab exercises?


                  • Original Poster

                    We do have a PT regimen already! 2x daily. 5 mins heat pack, then 5 mins leg extensions (forward and back) a little bit of *very* gentle massage, and then 5 mins cold pack.

                    Heat pack is met with joy, cold pack... dirty looks. LOL! One thing you can say about corgis, they certainly don't hide their opinions!

                    She's doing very well today, and right now is snoring happily at my feet.

                    The area has been modified a bit and is now about 3'x3'3" Sadly, Miss Whiskey is quite crate phobic, so just trying to make do with what we can. :-) (she's also about a low-key as a corgi comes, thank goodness! Her sister would have to have been hog-tied down by this point!!!)

                        Sounds like Whiskey is on her way to a great full recovery!

                            That picture of her pre-surgury at the vet is great, talk about having the "pity me" look down to an art form!!

                              Whiskey took a few "steps" today on THE LEG! She's been a pretty big weenie this whole time, refusing to do her PT and basically just moping about like an emo teenager. Then, a couple of days ago, she perked up considerably, and today, she used the leg! Whoohoo!!!

                              Here's hoping she tries again tomorrow. :-D :-) Yay!!!

                                  That's great news! I hope she continues to improve. My 3 corgis send best wishes, and the 2 pug mixes do too!!

                                      Good update! Yay for the little princess . I'm glad that she's healing well. It does take time but once they realize that they *can* use the leg they usually progress very well.

                                      She'll be good-as-new in no time.

                                      Oh, and if she refuses to do her PT, since she's not that big, you could fill the bathtub and "swim" her in there (while holding her - sort of swimming in place). The swimming is a great, no stress exercise for them. This is one of the exercises my vet had us do after our little guy had this same surgery.

                                        Well, we go in tomorrow to see the PT lady. I"m not looking forward to it, she sounds *Very* cranky, and as we ALL know Whiskey is a very delicate flower. LOL! However, the bathtub thing sounds like fun! I would have to make sure there was some video proof of this, because I suspect she'll have us in hysterics with her drama queen antics!
