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!

  • I did the beef and pickles recipe that was a few pages back, except what I had was a jar of the bread & butter slices, rather than a jar of dill pickles. But it still tasted great!

    I've got Thanksgiving leftover ham in the crock now with red potatoes, apple cider and brown sugar.

      SAUSAGE HOT POT

      - 2 medium potatoes, sliced
      - 1 cup Baby Carrots
      - 1 medium Sweet Potato, sliced
      - 1 Pack of Sausage such as Hillshire Farm, diced into bite size pieces
      - 1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
      - 1 can Cream of Onion Soup
      - 1/4 cup water

      Put all ingredients in crock pot, mixing well. Cook 8 to 10 hours on low or 4 to 5 hours on high. (I cooked this on high and it was done in 4 hours). The potatoes almost melt into the soup mix when it has cooked long enough.
      I can't find Cream of Onion Soup at the grocery store. Is this something special?

        I haven't made that recipe, but IME you can substitute any other "cream of" for the one you're targeting, then add a relevant ingredient to give it flavor. For cream of onion, I would add onion powder, dried onion flakes, or finely diced onion.

        Or if you prefer, Hillbilly Housewife has a great "Cream of Anything" recipe that is a cheap and easy substitute for canned "Cream of" Soups. After all, "Cream of" soups are not cheap for what they are. They're basically flour, water, a little boullion, etc. and they charge you 70+ cents for stuff that costs next to nothing.

          I found it at Kroger made by Campbells so it probably just depends on whether a particular grocery store stocks it or not. jn4jenny is right about cream of anything sufficing - try a different variety. I do have to say though that the cream of onion really added flavor so maybe add a tablespoon or two of dehydrated onion flakes to your mixture. In fact, I would probably do 2 cream of Mushroom cans and add the onion flakes on top of that. The consistency of the stew sauce was excellent with only 1/4 cup of water and I was skeptical of that before making it.

                  • I'd like to thank whoever put that chicken and dumpling recipe up! It reminded me of a chicken pot pie, without all the work I added a ton of carrots and broth instead of water, and put in the biscuits about an hour before and it turned out very tasty.

                      • So....I have a whole bunch of Chicken drumsticks...any suggestions on a crockpot recipe I can use before I go to the barn tomorrow? Was thinking of just dumping a bunch of bbq sauce in, but is that going to be a mess with the bones?

                        I bought one of the family packs on sale and wanted to try something with the remaining drumsticks...I'm only going to use a few tonight when I cook...thanks!

                        • I make my crockpot recipes in the morning and let them cook all day on low. The veggies stay firm at the low temperature and the meat gets super tender.

                          Plain Old Cupboard Beef Stew
                          This is the stew I made yesterday from whatever I had around, and it turned out fabulous!:

                          2 lbs of beef, cubed. Toss in a sealed freezer bag with 1/4 cup flour and 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp ground pepper, until the flour is all sticking to the meat. Brown lightly in a large frypan with 2 tblsp oil for 5-10 minutes, then place it all in the bottom of the crock pot.

                          2 packages Lipton Onion Soup mix ,mixed in 2 cups boiling water. Pour over beef. Layer on:

                          4 potatoes peeled and cubed
                          1 turnip or swede, peeled and cubed ( don't let the turnip scare you- it really adds the best flavour!)
                          4 carrots peeled and cubed
                          1 can of sliced mushrooms, with the liquid.
                          a handful of chopped parsley or parsley flakes.

                          Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours ( its ready at 6, but even better at 8, and will still be great after 10 hours in the pot, if you're late)

                          • This is another great recipe. I serve it over angel hair pasta and only use 1/2 cup of peanut butter. It tastes much like Pad Thai except it doesn't have eggs or shrimp.

                              I did that too. First time I made it as written. Second time I did as above to make a soup out of it and it was good too!

                              • I highly recommend "Not your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook" by Beth Hensberger. I like the convenience of the crockpot, but I'm not fond of the fact that so many recipes for them are based on canned soup and/or vegetables...yuck! Too much salt, plus I'm lactose intolerant and the cream soups are indigestible.

                                I've made a number of recipes from this book, they are made with fresh ingredients and every one I've tried has been very good. I just made the "Mom's Beef Stew" early Sunday morning because I'd be at a clinic all day. When I came home at 6pm...excellent beef stew was ready and everyone enjoyed it.

                                    this is todays CrockPot meal o the day...it does have coconut milk in it but is not a dairy product for the lactose intolerant/no cream of....soups.

                                    I also tossed in a can of tiny shrimp and can of clams for seafood chowder instead of "just fish" and used less than the 4 called for peppers...didn't have 4 and it seemed like too much anyway.

                                    oh...it got a shot of sherry too. A lot of my soups get that!! (grin!)

                                    • Approximate measures:
                                      1 can chick peas (garbanzo beans)
                                      1 can creamed corn
                                      1 can diced tomatoes
                                      either diced chicken (cooked), or stew beef (browned), or 1 can of other beans (navy, lima, kidney)
                                      chicken broth
                                      1 tsp-1 tbsp (depending on size of crock-pot and cans) Better than Bouillion vegetable seasoning

                                      If you want, add some rice or pearl barley. Possibly throw in some baby carrots.

                                      This will work for a 3-4 hour recipe, as it's mostly cooked already. I usually cook this on low all day, as I'm out of the house (I just add more liquid if it'll be long).

                                      • What fabulous recipes! Horse people are great cooks! I have just saved all these recipes to a pdf file. YUM!

                                        Would like to mention that I used to do all my cooking on one day of the week. I would make up casseroles, freeze them and in the AM, pull one out of the freezer, put it in my timer oven, set the timer. It defrosted during the day, the timer oven came on, and when I came home, it was ready. Then along came the MW oven and ruined all my discipline.

                                        HOWEVER, there are great recipes that can be made up the night before, and popped from the refrigerator into the MW when you get home.

                                        But nothing beats the aroma of a crockpot cooked meal.

                                        • I admit with guilt that my crock pot tonight includes a hunk of beef, cream of mushroom soup, turkey stock from Thanksgiving, onions and potatoes.

                                          So much for crock pot diversity! Maybe tomorrow I'll make palak paneer to make up for my sins.
