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!

    Shelter thought she might be a Lab/Schnauzer cross, which seems plausible.
    German Wirehaired Pointer?

      A shelter mutt (probably some sort of lab mix). A pit mix (mom was full blooded, dad was who knows). A full blooded American Pit Bull Terrier. And another shelter dog that is more than likely a full blooded Carolina Dog (or Carolina Dingo). The CD has her story here somewhere... she was my pregnant foster that had 10 pups and then came down with distemper. Only her and one pup made it. And she became a foster failure. The pit mix and the Dingo are my 'barn dogs' (as in they are the ones who go to the barn with me-private barn/just me).

        More accurately I am now owned by a 9 mo old Boston Terrier. He's our first puppy, first purebred and first small breed. Previously we have had large, shelter dogs with behavioral problems. We loved our last lab mix, but he hated car rides and never did learn to play well with others -- so we wanted to try something different.

        Like a few other posters on Menagerie - we are switching from horses to dogs... Fingers crossed that I will learn training well enough to get into agility. Working on 'stay' but the adolescent has attention issues.

          She's all farm doggie! Best barn dog of the lot we have here at home.

          My JRT rescue ended up being a couch potato and the Soft-Coated Wheaton is a total woofer.

          Don't let anyone tell you that your ideas or dreams are foolish. There is a millionaire walking around who invented the pool noodle.

            I have one Aussie, one Blackmouth Cur, one Great Pyrenees, one chi/dach mutt of some sort, one Golden Retriever mutt of some sort, and a German Shepherd.

            Yes, I am somewhat crazy.

              I have what is supposedly a St. Bernard/heeler cross. He looks like a streamlined, non-drooling St. Bernard. My friend/barn partner has a boxer and a fox red lab. She used to breed Russell Terriers and Hunt Terriers.

              When I think of dogs associated with horse people, I think of Aussies/heelers, corgis and Jack Russells. But right now I don't have any horse friends that have any of these breeds, I don't think!

                  Rat terrier, that was to be my next obedience and agility dog, but had a hock injury, so we never went too far with it.

                  Allergic to dogs, rat terriers are very easy to keep clean wiped down regularly.

                    Three Poms. Had to put my GSD down last year. In the past we have had Goldens, Pit Bulls, Rotties and mutts.

                      We have an adult Jack Russell and a young Lab/Pit mix. The JRT thinks he is the big dog in the house (well, the world!) and the Lab/Pit thinks he is a little cuddly lap dog. Despite their identity crisis, they are awesome.


                      • #31
                        I have a 2.5 year old sheltie and a six month old Briard.

                        Here they are together a few weeks ago.

                          Used to have JRT's, Now i have 2 Chinese Crested Powder Puffs, and 3 American Hairless Terriers ( hairless Rat terriers)

                            A Golden Retriever, a lab/great dane/shepherd mix, and a mostly German Shorthair Pointer. She might have a smidge of hound in there somewhere.

                              That Briard is too much! The personification of "What?!" Too cute!

                                A Weimaraner, a mostly redbone hound that looks to have a bit of boxer, and a mixed breed, about fifty pound, your guess is as good as mine.


                                • #36
                                  A Pit Bull and what we guess is a Pit Bull/Vizsla cross, he came out of a purebred Pit, but looks almost 100% Vizsla. We just lost one of ours, our token black dog (mostly Pit), right before Christmas.

Because I don't keep my horses at my house, he said, "you must have horses". I found it very funny that with a Pembroke Welsh Corgi some people would assume I have horses. I was curious what the other horse people owned and what was popular in other states. In Ohio, I notice cattle dogs, Aussies, Corgis, and maybe a few toy breeds at horse shows.

                                    So, what kind of dog do you own?
                                    Funny! I always have the same thought but I take it a step further... Corgis = dressage rider and Jack Russels = eventer in my mind

                                    I have a cattle dog/pittie mix.

                                        GSD for me. He likes to school dressage with us.

                                        The barn dogs are (in order of descending size): Great Pyr, Catahoula, "American Brown Dog" terrier mix, the long-legged black chihuahua-looking mix, and the black papillion/chi mix.
