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!

      Just saw this thread. Glad the little dude is feeling better!

      FWIW, the beagle I have now is by far the smartest dog I've ever owned. I've had mutts and dobermans also. She definitely follows her nose, and was a terrible pup but is now pretty obedient and stays within our invisible fence. Had her grandpa too and he was the sweetest dog ever. He was more stubborn though. Also had one growing up and he was a sweet dog but wandered a LOT. I don't think they're for everyone, but they're fun, lovable, loyal dogs and get along great with other dogs. Mine have all been submissive in that regard. The one I have now is absolutely freaking hilarious, she has such a personality. She's my baby girl!

      Good luck with him!

          But when the beagle half comes out he is definitely "a nose with legs". DH and I joke that when the nose turns on, his brain falls out of his ear and he forgets what planet he's on, does not know his name, etc.
          2 high energy breeds mixed--sounds active, my dog I think is beagle/sheperd he really has a split personality lol. He wants to stay & protect the flock (kids) but he sees a rabbit & , so its kinda like manic & depresseve.

          Good luck with your beagle pup OP

            I have always wanted a beagle. Lovely dogs, but yes a little stubborn and prone to following their noses.

            Hope your guy pulls through.

            To anyone who thinks beagles can't be trained, do a search for Purin the Superbeagle.

              . I was owned by two beagles for 13 1/2 years. They were not dumb...they were beagles...all hound. I had to learn what that meant and when I did, I didn't try and change it. They are what they are.
              Both of mine went to obedience and did quite well. Yes, they ocassionally got loose and nose went to the ground. Peanut, my female would jog down the street, look at you and give you the doggie finger rather than come but neither ever got in trouble on their adventures. As they got older, they actually started minding better. They were sociable, happy, appropriately active for a house dog and perfect loves. When I lost Peanut and Turbo...10 weeks apart no less, I did not replace them as I am not home enough to be fair to a dog (or dogs). I will get another when I retire and am not gone as much as I am now.


              I hope your little guy comes out of his shell. Sounds like you are on the right track.

                How is Pupster today? I love the latest photo of him - he sure loves that bed.

                Tail broken at the base? I cannot imagine how much that has to hurt. Will it heal on its own?

                    Update today is that he is slowly coming out of his shell. And he's definitely not housebroken!

                    As for his tail, I guess it needs to heal on its own or my friend would have done whatever needed to be done. She did call me yesterday and say that amazingly his fecal was negative. However he does have Lyme and Anaplasma so we'll be starting him on doxycycline in a couple of days. She doesn't want to wait too long to treat, but also wants to build him up a bit before starting the doxy.

                    I'm sorry for less frequent updates (and no updates on the facebook page), one of my kids is pretty sick and I'm focussing almost entirely on that.

                      Aw - I love your recent updates! Esp. the picture of him sharing the bed with your cat. ***Hint to CoTH people who might want a cat-friendly dog!
                      So he's making barn visits (leashed of course) with you now, I see. Really rooting for him to beat the Lyme and anaplasmosis and find a happy Beagle-y home (that is, if you haven't decided to keep him).

                      Has your son recovered from the appendectomy?

                        I can't forget this adorable pup and keep checking the OP's facebook page for updates.

                        He is REALLY looking so much better, out and about in the barn in his coat, greeting the horses (he seems quite unfazed by anything), and napping in the sun.

                        Have you decided to keep him?

                          I thought I'd update the thread. He's happy, healthy, and was too much Beagle for me so he is one lucky beagle and landed in the perfect home for him: my parents'. He never roamed, which is pretty remarkable, but I just did not have a ton of time to devote to him and I never got him housebroken. Plus, he was a hooligan, always trying to get into everything (especially of course food). (He has amazing jumping ability, able to spring 4' off the ground from a standstill.)

                          My parents, who lost their Bichon Frise, a year ago, on the other hand are retired and LOVE having a creature to care for . . . and that beagle never once had an accident in my parents' house! It is win-win -- my parents are happy for his company and are more active, and he gets lots of attention. They appreciate just how sweet and gentle he is, and are very proud of him.

                          He is a lucky beagle because I was not going to pass him on to just anyone as I felt he was terrible "pet" material and didn't want someone else to dump him when they got fed up.

                          So -- alls well that ends well.

                            Wonderful news! Is his name still "Uppie"?

                              Nope, my Mom renamed him "Rafiq" which means "friend" in Arabic, because he is so friendly to everyone he meets. :-)
