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!

  • 100 very well bred straight Egyptian horses at kill buyer in Texas

    A big Arabian breeder in Texas has died and his family sold all the horses to a kill buyer rather than deal with selling them. Read about it here and if you want to pick up one of these nice horses, contact one of the posters on that thread.

    I would be happy to drive up and pick up as many as four of them and hold for you to transport - or bring them to you if you are within reasonable distance.

    Note: the kill buyer is cognizant of the current EHV-1 outbreak and is willing to hold them for 30 days til this blows over.

    Note: Just found out that about half of them are Polish Arabians. Looking for an Arabian dressage prospect? Go check them out.

      It looks like this farm has half Arabians, also. Are they included in this mass sale?

          WTF

          What (general) part of Texas are the horses at now? It's a big state but I can help spread the word to some interested peeps.

            My understanding is that ALL of them were sold to the kill buyer.

            They are in Gainesville, Texas. North of Dallas (and north of Denton)

                    The kill buyer will not just run off and have them killed. He has to know they're worth more than just a meat price. He/they are in a business. Doesn't mean people shouldn't run out and look at them, it just means it probably wouldn't happen tomorrow.

                      I just read on an arabian forum that the KB is willing to take $750 or $800 for horses he paid $150 for. Sweet profit. I'll bet he's willing to wait a couple of weeks for that kind of payout.

                          Very good to hear they are finding homes, at least better homes than the truck. But I am still in favor of outing the lovely family members who decided to sell Grandpa's horses to the meat man. Loathsome. Vile.

                            As far as I can figure out owner Tom Guset die of cancer, the property and horses (150 of them) in a estate sale. Bill Richardson (214-649-3460) will give the horses 30 days to sell. The price is $750.00 to $800.00 they take paypal and checks and they have there PAPERS!
                            Don't call Bill and bug him unless you want to buy a horse. He will simply shrug and load them up and send them to slaughter. 49 horses went to 1 person to start a breeding farm *sigh* he has 39 horses left.
                            Thankfully because of the EVH-1 outbreak horses will be held for a month.

                            I'll post the updated list of who's available as soon as it's available. Sonesta I might take you up on the offer of transport and quarantine as the barn I am at just doesn't have the facilities.
                            I have seen and handled these horses in the past couple of years. Solid minds if a little haughty on the approach. Ramses Faarisa would be my pick for a solid dressage mare and would possibly be suitable for an older kid. Sonny's Dawn another solid mare both in mind and body. She is very well sprung through the ribs and takes up the leg of the rider quite well. She was a bit over zealous in the personal space department but I did have mints on me. ZA Queen Lateffa this mare has the IT factor and my god does she take your breath away with movement! She is a bit short in the neck department but she makes up for it in length of stride and willingness to please. I really don't remember any of the others and I was not overly impressed with the stallions but then again I'm usually not.

                              Is she still there? Someone should look at her as a prospect for Arabian dressage.

                                Hi All,
                                I would be interested in a SE if he is willing to take a small profit . I am in FL but i would be willing to go get one if so. Like everyone else money is tight. Also IF I could get one at a low enough price and someone else in FL wanted one I would be willing to haul it back for just a little gas money. I know this is a long shot for me to get one at a low enough price but I could provide a good home and if it didnt work out for me I could certainly keep it til I could find a proper home.
                                **disclamer I am at work and have not read all the posts***

                                  Yes, let's not start bugging the kill buyer. He bought them legally and is trying to do the right thing. And frankly, I cannot even get angry at the family. After all, they were not horsey and imagine if you were suddenly faced with caring for and finding homes for 100 horses!

                                  This way, they will mostly find good homes at a very reasonable price and the kill buyer will make a tidy profit.

                                    Not suggesting bugging the kill buyer.

                                    I want the heir who consigned them to the kill buyer to be known as the fine and thoughtful human being that he or she is.

                                        Someone decided to send them to the kill buyer. It didn't just magically occur. If, as the OP suggests, the heir just said the hell with it and consigned them without making any effort to sell them to private buyers, I think that is information that should be well known.
