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!

    Thanks everyone, I do realize that I should not have pushed her. That was my bad.

    I am going to talk to the leasing office, give them the case number and find out of the other tenet filed a charge against her from a few months ago.


    And yes, I will be getting some mace or some sort of spray in the very near future. A big stick? I would most likely end up tripping over it, yes I am that much of a klutz. And I need to make sure the spray I get has a fool proof spray head on it. I am the type of person that would spray myself in my face.


    Thanks everyone!

      Oh man. I feel your pain. I got to deal with the poodle from hell that ended up getting shot by the police. *sigh* Things never got physical with his owner, because she was pregnant... I did want to deck her ever so badly though.

      There is a reason that JRT's are roughly shaped like a football. I wouldn't hesitate to punt the little terror next time, his owner might not learn a lesson, but he might. They are smart little devils.

      I also agree with arming yourself with mace. Check the wind direction before you spray, however (even if your well-meaning husband is yelling at you to 'use the spray!'), because it's a PITA to get out of your eyes... even after afforementioned husband sprays you in the face with the garden hose. I'm not speaking from experience or anything.

      Good luck! The police are your friends in this instance.

        I don't know what the laws are in Fla, but here, if they have her name and can track her down, a property owner (in this case the leasing office) can serve her with a "trespass notice" which bans her from the property. It is a lot easier for the police to do something if she has been issued this notice in advance. Here stores routinely issue them to known shoplifters.
        At its finest, rider and horse are joined not by tack, but by trust. Each is totally reliant upon the other. Each is the selfless guardian of the other's very well-being.

          It is the owners and not the dogs. I've had 3 renters with PB's. All were very friendly and well behaved. One of them is a therapy dog. He spent Friday at the local elementary school in a "Dogs as Tutors" class, having the students read to him while he lays there paying attention to them. It helps the kids that have difficulty reading out loud to have to read to a nonjudgemental dog. He takes his job very seriously. The owner also owns 2 Chinchillas, and the dog will put his head in the cage and rest his chin on the bottom, while the chinchillas groom his muzzle. It's very cute.

              It might be that when the police or your management talk to the other complex manager that the woman is violating her lease. And it could be she may be leaving soon, and I certainly hope for that. It sucks that anyone has to worry about who is trespassing on their property, and causing problems. If all the other woman was doing was using the dog park, then I bet no one would care, but she obviously wants to intimidate people, and cause confrontations and fights.

                  MAYBE you and several other tenents tht have been harrassed by this woman can chip in and buy a small survellience camera (sell it later and divi up the money)..........they are not super expensive, and if you have the veiw, you could mount it from your window/balcony......................having her aggressions on tape would really burn her bacon

                    This is one reason I'm thankful to have two big dogs of my own. That lady wouldn't have been able to get close enough to me to throw a punch.

                    I've only seen my otherwise very friendly lab get "aggressive" three times in 9 years. In each case, someone was being aggressive towards me.

                    Glad you're okay. Be careful out there!

                      I just spoke with the leasing office, there is no "sister" that rents here, we figured so much. I asked about the other run in with tenet that happened a few months ago with this same person and he never filed a report. We called him and asked. My leasing manager is going to comb though police reports to see if there is anything, just in case. From the previous run in there was a sheriff called and dispatched to our complex.

                      I do have a large (65lbs) pittie mix who was in the apt watching everything from the window, I am actually surprised he did not jump through the screen (so he is smarter than he looks thank god). Had he been down there with me there would no longer be a JTR. He is not aggressive, but very protective when the situation arises. And I did not want to have to take him to the vet should something happen. (which is why I left him in the apt) I may just spring for a camera myself, surely there are holiday sales coming soon.


                      Thanks for all the support everyone!

                          Not sure if it will make you feel any better, but I once had someone come over the counter and take a swing at me when I was working in a vet clinic. They were long time clients at a rather upscale clinic. The guy just got really agitated when we asked him to pay his bill! some people are just bar brawler types at heart and it doesn't take much to incite their violence.

                          You were probably wise to leave your pooch in the house. While I have no issues with PB's in general (my family has one), I also know how hard it can be to break them up if there IS a fight. I broke my toe a few months ago getting my neighbor's PB off of my dog. (kicking barefoot is not wise, but hey, I was in my bathrobe and such!)

                          Glad you're okay.

                          Good luck.

                            not to mention that it will always be the PBs fault, even with evidence to the contrary....

                              I apologize, Ala, didn't mean to give that impression at all.

                              As I said, my family has a PB too. I'm not averse to the breed. It's the PEOPLE that are the problem.

                              In the case I mentioned above, I was over feeding the neighbor's dogs. (pet sitting) My dogs (who have played with the neighbor dogs for several years) were there too. One of the dogs got pissed and cornered one of my dogs on the deck outside the house and was all over him. Would not get off. I wasn't going to stick a hand in that mess. I yelled and then I kicked until I broke it up. The difference sometimes between a terrier breed and others is that they are very very focused.

                                  oh heck, no, I thought I was adding that to the idea you posted.
                                  If the Pit is in a fight he certainly must have instigated it, never in a million years the lab, the Chi or the JR Terrorist, I mean terrier....

                                  main reason I am for not bringing a pit to a serious situation - unless of course you have to fear for your life.

                                  (gosh, I need more coffee...)

                                  I mean, you are completely right it is almost always the people.
                                  but those people will also blame the 'dangerous' dog, getting him in all kinds of trouble.

                                    I've been bitten (or attempted bitten) by more cockers and doxies than anything else. But the dogs who have really scared me because they were going for broke were chows and PBs. Not gonna lie. My SP got "attacked" by some JR terrorists at the dog park the other day. He was scared, I was not. I can beat them off easily. But a bigger dog? Not so much.

                                    Like you said though, my dogs could be dangerous too in the right situation. I dare someone to mess with me when I've got mine in hand.

                                      Just kidding, sort of.

                                      Stuff like this makes me crazy angry. I had a very similar encounter a few years ago with a girl in my apartment complex. I was walking my dog (on a leash) down the steps and across the lawn area to get to the sidewalk. All of a sudden a loose lab comes barreling toward us. I scooped up my dog (a 17 lb Shiba Inu) and start looking for the lab's owner. The lab is leaping up on me to get to my now snarling shiba, so I kneed it in the chest to get it to get off me. That brought the owner running - "DON'T KICK MY DOG!!!"

                                      I was shaking I was so angry, but I really didn't want a problem, so I politely asked her to please control her dog. She responded with "It's your dog that needs to be controlled!" Yes, my 17 lb shiba who is ON A LEASH and CURRENTLY BEING HELD IN MY ARMS is the out of control one.

                                      The girl then proceeded to tell me that I shouldn't have come down the stairs of my own apartment complex because she was playing fetch with her loose dog. Whatever. I gave her a dirty look and walked away.

                                      Not two minutes later, the lab comes barreling up to me again, this time screaming owner in tow - "Now my dog is going to follow you! Why did you come down the stairs!?!" She continued to scream at me about how it was my fault that her dog wouldn't come and she had every right to have her dog loose, yadda yadda yadda...

                                      I pretty well lost it. It didn't get physical, but unfortunately for the girl, I'm pretty familiar with law enforcement in the area. I called the cops. She was ticketed for violating the leash law, having an unlicensed animal, not having proof of rabies vaccination, and warned that I had a pretty good case for assault.

                                      I didn't press charges, but I did get her evicted. Our complex has a pretty strict 20lb weight limit on pets and they were not impressed with the loose, out of control, 70lb lab.

                                      Good luck, OP. I've come to conclusion that there is nothing worse than an entitled, bad dog owner.

                                        My sister works at a vet hospital as an animal caretaker. Before that she worked at a humane society. The top "beware of" breeds on her list are Chows and Springers.
