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!

      That is so sad. Makes you never want to sell a horse, as it doesn't seem to matter how nice they are, any horse can end up here ... poor guys

        I've heard people talking about Camelot and having just moved here, I had no idea what it was. I just checked out the website and now I am sick


        Why do these horses end up here? Are they getting dumped by owners who can no longer afford them? Or they have some issue the owner doesn't want to deal with?

          They were sent through an auction with no reserve put on them, and the Killer Buyer bought them. The previous owners either didn't know or didn't care if they went to slaughter. Sometimes horses that are given away free "to good homes" are taken by people pretending to give the horse a home, when their intention is to run it through the auction to make a couple of hundred dollars.
          Sometimes people will run a horse through an auction thinking that the horse is nice, so surely it will get a good home, only to have there not be many buyers present at the auction that day, so a Killer Buyer ends up buying it.





          But the horse in the first post really looks nice.

            If they do go to the slaughterhouse, do they end up as dog food? I hate to even say that (it feels so terrible).

            The horse mentioned in the original post actually looked kind of cute. I hope she can find a nice place. What about university programs? Do they ever pick up horses from Camelot and try to rehabilitate them?

              They haven't used horse in commercial dog food since the 70's when they passed a wild horse protection act. They are slaughtered in Canada and Mexico for human consumption overseas. Go look at the thread on Off Course titled something like "Documented abuse at Slaughter house". there's some video (or text if you can't watch the video) of what happens to them. You can also go to Kaufman zoning.net (google it), and find more info. Or go to the off course forum, and search "Horse slaughter". Lots of threads on it.

              Universities get horses donated to them. Some universities SEND those horses thru auctions and end up having them be bought by Killer Buyers.

                Are there any other uses for horse meat other than what you mentioned? I don't disagree with what you are saying regarding "human consumption overseas". However, I was under the impression that deworming medications and certain other things were not to be used in horses intended for human consumption.

                So is the issue of human safety just not relevant anymore due to some change in formulation that doesn't present a problem? Or is it the case that the overseas buyers just don't care what the animal may or may not have consumed?

                Comment


                • #9
                  A small amount of horsemeat goes to zoos, but the vast majority is for human consumption. Due to a recently passed EU reg, horses need to have paperwork signed off by the seller to the SH that the horse has been drug free for 6 months. However KB's are the ones filling out that paperwork. No one is checking up on them (ie tracking down sales history/interviewing prior owners). They go by the KB's word that the horses are drug free.

                    My trainer recently bought a gorgeous 6 year old TB this way. He had been a blood donor for about 2 years, and they just shipped him and 2 other mares off to an auction house. Luckily the B/O was at the vet school that day and saw him.

                        That grey Hanoverian is lovely. A couple of the trail horses appeal to me, too. As for the former petting zoo pony...

                            STB Mare..

                            I don't really know how this works, but does anyone frequent the sale grounds? The STB Mare should be pretty easy to identify if someone can get her freeze brand, or if she's much older, tattoo..I'd like to know who she is at the very least..

                                I tried to buy #371, but she had been bailed out before I could get through. I'm really hoping she found a good home. She looked like a very sweet mare.

                                  If you have facebook, the best way to follow the auction, which happens weekly, is on there. Just search for "camelot horse weekly". On that page they will give you info on how to buy, who to use for shipping, and where quarantine barns are. Usually the shippers listed there give you a "break" for buying a horse from camelot. I would suggest looking to the FB page for info. The next sale pictures should be posted Wednesday. ALL the horses have to be sold by Saturday. It really is a great way to give a needy horse a second chance at life.

                                      Unfortunately the volunteers/rescue working with Camelot can't release that information. In the past, they'd post tattoo numbers or IDs, but unfortunately people being people, they would often track down owners/breeders/trainers and rant and rave and scream, essentially harrassing them. The proprietor of the auction house put a stop to it due to complaints.

                                        Understandable..but unfortunately it limits what one can do to really help. Some breeders/owners WOULD really want to know and help.
                                        And, I know it probably shouldn't matter who she is, but if she's some great old thing she's more likely to find a home.
