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.

  • Liquid Fenbendazole - Did your Horse eat feed Ok or Refuse Feed?

    Hi all,

    I've been reading for a few months and appreciate all the great tips.

    We have not done the Power Pac wormers for a few years and thanks to this board, we will be purchasing either the cattle tubes or the liquid drench for our 3 horses.

    The liquid is cheaper of course, but if our horses refuse their feed, it will be a waste.

    We have one very picky horse (due to hiding crushed up cushings meds for years), so unless the vast majority have had no problems with the palatability of the liquid, we will probably pay a bit more and get the tubes.

    Please post whether your horses have eaten their feed with the liquid fen (we will be using Triple Crown Senior) or if they refused it due to taste/smell.

    Adding a lot of powdered sugar helped get my old standardbreds to eat it but my lusitano still won't touch it. I fear he hasn't been getting the whole dose because, despite making it thicker it's still hard to get it all in my oral syringe plus he manages to always have a wad of hay stuffed in the back of his mouth waiting for just such an occasion. When they say liquid it's really a suspension so it's kind of thick-milky colored. Make sure you shake it well.

      My boys ate it up just fine. But then, both of them will eat nearly anything. The one guy was on TC Senior, the other on TC Lite. No issues with either of them.

        I hide everything in beet pulp. It is strongly enough flavoured/smelling that no one ever refuses beep.

        I also will use an extra scoop of the vits/mins I use, as they are flavoured with anise and again, strongly smelling/tasting and also salty (yes, I've tasted!) and seem to help 'hide' things.

        When I'm feeding paste wormer in feed, I mix the paste wormer with 2 scoops of vits/mins on a paper plate. Becomes a crumbly sort of deal. THEN I add that to the beep.

        I haven't used liquid safeguard, but have used paste, in a DD, with the above method, and no one knew any better.

        I *suspect* the liquid is NOT flavoured much, if at all, as we use a drench gun with cattle. Just extrapolating... Uckele makes a sugar free flavour additive that might be perfect. SF Maple Syrup works wonders, as does a bit of organic BLACK STRAP molasses. (vs. cheap cooking molasses which is basically karo syrup) Though for the non-IR/EPSM/Matabolic etc., Karo Syrup is handy too.

            Our guys won't touch the liquid but like the alfalfa pelleted fenbendazole, mixed in their grain.

              I used the goat liquid wormer. My 3 ate it just fine, even my SUPER picky TB mare. If all else fails, beet pulp, alfalfa cubes, or molasses works great.

                Thank you everyone! I ordered the liquid tonight and will use your tips to conceal the taste.

                  re: liquid goat fenbendazole

                  Just saw the post about using liquid goat wormer instead of the expensive Power Pack. But I just did some calculations and, if I did this right, looks like the horse dosage is 110mg/kg versus 5 mg/kg for goats. So it would take so much of the stuff that it wouldn't serve the purpose of being economical.

                  This is based on the Power Pack dose of 57g/1100 lb. per tube.

                    I think it depends on how many horses you're doing. It's 4.6ml/100lbs so x 1,000 lbs say and it's 46 ml/day x 5 days so roughly you need 250ml for one thousand pound horse for a treatment.

                    I have three horses so I bought the 1,000ml bottle at $120 (with shipping) from Jeffers but after I googled jeffers + coupon I found a $5 discount code so I only paid $115 for a 3 horse supply.

                    Had I gotten power packs for all of them it would have been something like $180. So yes it saved me some money.
