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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

  • Meatatarians vs. Vegetarians in the Horsey World -- A Spinoff

    A horsewoman is throwing a party and may be trying to decide whether or not to serve vegetables.

    What are your thought? Should vegetables be served?

    Should only vegetables be served?

    I'm not sure if there is going to be riding before dinner, or after, or both, but IME meatatarians and vegetarians ride happily together. So, will vegetarians come to the dinner?

    What is the proper protocol? Should they just show up, bringing their own covered dish vegetable dishes?

    Should they ask other people first whether or not this is proper protocol?

    And then, about the vegans ...

    Rack on!

    I can tell you a vegan would not serve meat.. And why forcing him to do it?? There is amazing vegan food. Heck you could even serve the vegan burger from McDonalds and do it like our President does....

        Working in a profession that includes everything from super hard-core evangelical Vegans to people who literally work as consultants for “factory” farms and feedlots, there are three main approaches. 1) Offer three entree options, two with meat, one vegan. Variety of sides, clearly labeled as vegetarian or vegan if appropriate, avoiding things like adding bacon to green beans. A meat eater can get along not having bacon in their beans just this once. This option is more at big catered ‘dos like conferences 2) Have make-your-own kind of bars. Pizza, omelets (with vegan egg substitute) kebabs, tacos and the like. 3) Potluck.

          It would be really nice to have some good veggie sides or a salad "fixings." That way vegetarians/vegans can have those as their meals and meat eaters can also have good sides. If you are trying to provide dinner for a variety of people you don't know well, I would cover my bases and go this route. If you want to do less work, but still provide, have a dish that can have toppings added so vegetarians can exclude meat but still eat. The easiest way is to probably just do a potluck. Vegans or people with specific diets are already used to having to bring their own food so this won't be too big of a deal. I am almost vegan (for health reasons) and have to bring my own food to any function with my in-laws because they refuse to consider deviating from meat and dairy.

              Is this a thinly veiled attempt to start a vegan- meatatarian ttrain wreck because we haven’t had one on that subject? Yet?

                Obviously they just have to eat in separate rooms. Meatitarians and vegetarians simply just can't get along and you can't convince me otherwise

                  Most vegetarians are not offended by the presence of meat at a party that is not of their own design. Just make sure there are some options for those who don't eat meat to have a hearty enough meal to be satisfied (not just an icebeg lettuce salad here). Meat-eaters eat veggies too, so not sure why the question about serving any veggies is an issue - everyone appreciates healthy options.

                    If I ate meat and showed up to a dinner that had literally no vegetables I would feel like it wasn't a normal meal. Why would no veggies even be an option?

                      You know, it used to be that when you went to a sit-down dinner party, you just ate what you were served - period. And you lavished your host(s) with praise of such a lovely meal - whether you thought it was horrendous or not. My how times change...

                      Now the veggies must be non-gmo, the meat cage free or grass fed, the fruit organic, and on and on. And don't even get me started on the vegans that think we need to simply convert (overnight of course) the millions of farm animals into pets.

                      I think if one were really concerned about guests that were vegetarians and vegans, the best solution would be to go with a legume, a vegetable and a starch and avoid meat, fish, dairy, etc. A hearty lentil soup/stew with spinach would fit the bill - with a loaf of bread of course, with a nice herb infused olive oil to dip in.

                        Love your suggestion. for Christmas we had Beet Wellington and I bet everybody would have loved it.. if the host is not vegetarian or vegan, he should still consider that some of his guests will be... I remember my Dad hosted a party and was very offended when my daughter told him she would not attend if there were no vegan options.... So finally he offered some vegan casserole (don’t remember what it was but something with rather unusual veggies). Believe it or not that casserole was the first thing gone.. All the non vegans went crazy about it.... So I think you can’t go wrong with vegan food but you will for sure make people unhappy if you don’t offer any.. There is amazing vegan sushi... and some incredible Thai food as well..

                          I admit I am a vegetarian but honestly, this was my first thought as well. I am hard pressed to think of any dinner party I have been to that didn't serve at least a salad and some kind of vegetable side and bread. As a vegetarian I do usually mention that I don't eat meat and it's never been a problem.

                            The obvious protocol the OP must follow is to have plenty of guac and boxed wine (not because they are compatible with both vegan and meatatarian diets, but because they're pretty much compulsory menu items for a chef who likes to stir the pot).

                            Don't forget a rainbow cake for dessert.

                              my husband is allergic to legumes - in larger groups you can't make one meal to suit everyone. Small group you can ask ahead and plan the menu accordingly, large groups I think buffet style (or potluck) with a variety is the only safe way to go.

                                X-half-salute, bingo! Rackonteur is doing her best to supply us with a salad idea and this is beginning to look promising. So far I like the Beet Wellington, because it is both vegetarian and contains the name Wellington, which will appeal to the many equestrians who winter there.

                                    Well, if I had a person coming to dinner that had a food allergy (that I was aware of), obviously, I wouldn't serve what they were allergic to! So if you and your husband were my dinner guests, I'd opt for a vegetable pasta dish - maybe a nice homemade pasta with spinach or broccoli and an olive oil based sauce.

                                      Meatatarians? Really? Most people who DO eat meat are omnivores and eat veggies/fruit as well. Why not a variety of dishes and, as someone suggested above, just leave the bacon bits out of the green beans, etc.? As an omnivore, I would be annoyed at being presented with an all veggie meal.
