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!

    From what I can tell, cops and prosecutors HATE dog cases. I don't know if it's a matter of feeling that such things are beneath them, wariness of being tarred and feathered by the crazies who come crawling out of the woodwork every time AC tries to euthanize a vicious dog, or simple overwork, but it's a rare case of dog bite that makes it to criminal court. The lousy part is, a dog who bites bad enough to be reported to the cops is usually a dog who's going to do it again, and probably better since they have some experience under their belt. If the authorities acted appropriately with the early, less lethal bites, they could prevent a lot of maulings and killings.

    In my experience, it's the people who bleat "all dogs bite!" who are delusional owners whose dogs are out of control. It seems like once some people decide that all dogs are potentially deadly, they figure that the rest of us are all partners in our own fate - after all, we're walking down a street past a dog's yard, so we walked into his territory and we KNEW dogs were all potentially deadly.

    All dogs are omnivores and predators, but saying they're all "killers at heart" is silly. Most dogs who run into a field with a horse cause trouble because they chase it and the horse is hurt trying to get away. Chasing another animal is fairly normal, typical dog behavior (and obviously one you don't want to allow), but attacking and mauling them is not.
    A dog who grabs and mauls another animal as play not because he's hungry and hunting isn't just being a dog; he's being a POS who's a disgrace to the name dog. Not to let the owner off the hook, but the dogs aren't worth spit either.

      Yes, your loving family dog might attack a child.

      As a four year old (and small for my age) I was playing with the neighborhood kids. There were 4+ dogs with us, including a German Shepherd (I don't remember the breeds of the others). I was standing there, watching the older kids run and play when the GS jumped on me from behind, grabbing my head in his mouth and taking me to the ground. The other smaller dogs also jumped in and started biting. There were some teenaged boys there who turned a hose on the dogs and pulled them off of me. I had bites to my head, arms, legs and back with the ones to my head being the most serious.

      Yes, your sweet, beloved doggie can attack children. It can join in with pack behavior. A GS can fit a small child's skull in it's mouth. I was in a place that should have been safe. I was standing there, not running, not screaming, not acting like a prey animal. The dog belonging to the homeowner was safely in it's secure run. The dogs had wandered over to see what was up. Yes, the owners were at fault for letting their dogs out, but I came uncomfortably close to paying a very high price for their ignorance.

      Since I was only 4, I don't know what was said between adults, but I never saw the GS out of it's own yard again.

        The yard with the playground equipment was the dogs yard. They didn't show the horses home, but when they interviewed the horse owners they were standing in front of what looked to be a very nice barn.

        Having had sheep and rabbits attacked by loose dogs, and having seen the neighbors llama torn up by dogs just last week, dogs running around loose makes me furious. It is a shame that people have to fence their property like Fort Knox to keep out dogs that are running loose due to careless owners. I get so tired of the excuses.... they are just being dogs, MY dog would never hurt anything, having little animals is tempting my dogs, you should love that my wonderful dog comes to visit you on your property. Just keep the flipping dogs in your own yard, kennel, chain, whatever. It is not that hard to keep a dog contained.

        I really hope the owners of the dogs have to pay every cent of the vet bills for those minis. That vet bill is going to astronomical.

          I agree with wendy, again. I have five dogs and one by one, on 364.75 days of the year, they are evicted by the cats from their beds, from food, from our laps... they cuddle the cats, one of them even NURSES one of the cats (a strange relationship we haven't deciphered) and the other day I saw three of the dogs following one of the cats way too intently. First time ever, but they're dogs and having five of them constitutes a pretty strong pack. I'm extremely conscious that they are not bombproof. I've never ever had them kill a thing, or even growl and the chased cat wasn't even scared but I feel like I have a loaded gun here and I stay on top of it.

              It's the owners, not the dogs
              Seems to be the standard answer, excuse. Get rid of ALL agressive dogs. The people aren't biting, mauling and killing.
              The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.

                As for the old "it's the owners, not the dogs", until we can control the owners (people), the dogs will pay. Human beings, especially here in America want to do as they please at all times in all places. As long as that mentality continues and certain owners' animals wreak havoc in society, animals will be the ones to suffer because the humans sure as hell aren't going to change their behavior for the benefit or protection of anyone else.

It seems like once some people decide that all dogs are potentially deadly, they figure that the rest of us are all partners in our own fate - after all, we're walking down a street past a dog's yard, so we walked into his territory and we KNEW dogs were all potentially deadly.

                      ...... but saying they're all "killers at heart" is silly.
                      but true. Keep in mind I'm not condoning, or excusing, biting and killing and aggression by dogs- I'm opposed to them. I think people should think long and hard about dog temperament before breeding. I think people should at times consider euth'ning dogs for aggression/ potential aggression- for example, if two dogs got out and mauled some kids, those dogs should be euth'd fast.

                      However, if you do any kind of study, real study (not just view media reports) of "dog attacks" what stands out isn't any characteristics of the dogs- most appear to be fairly normal dogs acting like you'd expect dogs to act- what stands out is the sheer stupidity of the people involved. The biggest stupidity involves utterly unrealistic expectations of dog behavior. The other problem is confusing aggression with behaviors like predation.

                      The unrealistic expectations of dog behavior crop up over and over again in bite/ maul/ prey animal cases. Persons who firmly believe that all dogs can bite, and all dogs are predators, generally take steps to teach/prevent their dogs from doing so. Persons who are convinced that only "vicious dogs" bite, and who confuse predation with aggression, don't take preventative steps and have/cause problems.

                      The "Disney" view of the dog is such a confusing, impossible ideal to live up to: on the one hand, the dog is supposed to aggressively guard the family, yet somehow never attack anyone, even in self defense; the dog is supposed to be an excellent hunting dog, yet never chase/kill any other animal, or even weirder, supposed to somehow instinctively know which species of animals are fair game to kill/chase and which are not (which speaks to the current case- most dogs have never seen or smelled a horse, mini or not, and haven't a clue as to what their people expect them to do around a horse; without guidance, most would probably default to chase n kill).

                      And in the "Disney" view of the dog, if the dog fails, which he is almost certain to considering how unrealistic the expectations are, the people who believe in the "disney" dog immediately start shrieking that dog MUST DIE, because clearly there's something wrong with THE DOG. Not that his owners are idiots, or that's impossible to meet the standard held up, or there was a icky accidental situation that occurred, no, there's something wrong with that particular dog. Which is nonsense. If you discard the "disney" view of the dog, and study the facts of each case, you can come up with ways to prevent any dog from ever doing that again. Not in the "disney" view of the dog- in the "disney" version, each dog must individually fail and be killed after causing a horrible incident, because it's impossible to prevent these situations because they are the result of "vicious dogs", not the result of preventable occurrences happening to normal dogs.

                            You make my point, humans aren't going to change, so get rid of the aggressive dogs.

                            Guess you ban and get rid of them as they are produced.

                            Again if its the owners then make the owners pay severely. Prison time and/or heavy fines.

                            If someone had an extremely aggressive horse that couldn't be ridden, would we say it's the owners fault. There would be cries to put the horse down.

                            Some solutions need to be quick fixes, because there are others that will pay the price if we don't fix immediately.

                              My family has had many fox terriers and now has a JRT, and I'm with you on this one. I've never met one that wouldn't chase squirrels and rabbits if they were loose, and getting their recall to the point of overriding a kicked in prey drive was almost impossible. My childhood dog would likely have chased a mini if she'd have met one.

                              Those of you with fox/ JRT's around farms and shows, what did it take to get the recall / no chase button installed securely enough that you could let them loose around horses and livestock? both for 'no chase' and for 'don't get stomped'? It must be possible, they were bred to be part of foxhunting.

                                  This is an unconvincing argument, as it's based as on a very weak premise that the kind of people who use large, powerful, aggressive dogs as weapons would just turn to other breeds if their breeds were banned. What stands out about it are a) the sheer improbability (can you really imagine a thuggish guy wanting a small or light dog?), and 2) the fascinating theory that the bad owner set who are typically blamed as the reason for breed bans are somehow going to engineer an athletic, muscular, dangerously aggressive Bassett in a few short years? Right. Like these people could selectively breed their way out of a paper bag.

Human beings, especially here in America want to do as they please at all times in all places. As long as that mentality continues and certain owners' animals wreak havoc in society, animals will be the ones to suffer because the humans sure as hell aren't going to change their behavior for the benefit or protection of anyone else.
                                  Damned few aggressive dogs "pay" for their behavior. In most cases, their owners are equally aggressive and employ considerable cunning in avoiding blame and reprecussions for both themselves and their beloved monster. They're adept at intimidating victims, cajoling authority, and just plain fleeing the jurisdiction when their uncontrolled asshole of a dog goes off on someone. The ones who pay are humans and dogs who get attacked. The attackers, humans or dogs, deserve no sympathy. Sure, the dogs were mishandled. But most dogs who are mishandled don't bite, or maul, or kill. They snap and then run away, they bark all the time, they get hit by cars, they are a nuisance. It takes a particular sort of dog to bite seriously in normal circumstances.

                                    First, my heart goes out to the family that owns the minis.

                                    It IS the dogs' owner that should be punished now. The dogs went after small, running prey which is a natural instinct for them. PERIOD.
                                    It is the owner's job to keep the dogs behind adequate fencing or watch them when they are out.
                                    To those that say kill the dogs now, do you also think all wild animals such as bears, wild cats, and wolves should be killed? Are you god now?

                                    If the owner of the dogs was not around and the only way to get the dogs off the minis was to shoot the dogs then yes, do what you have to do. But killing them now is pointless and insane. Fine the owner; have him pay bills.

                                    And yes, I own an awesome rescue Rottie that is a big sweetheart and even had my dog-fearing mom snuggling her during her recent visit, but I'm intelligent enough to NEVER leave my dog unattended outdoors ( we don't have a fence, so she stays leashed). She has a strong prey drive and would chase something small and helpless in a second.

                                      I live in the Houston area and read about this also.

                                      The article I read, KHOU Ch 11 article, said the dogs got loose and dug under the fence to get to the minis. The minis were in the backyard as Christmas gifts to the two little girls but were going to be moved to the Father's rural property after the New Year.

                                      The minis fought through the fence and got out to the front yard and as the dogs were mauling them in the front yard, onlookers were throwing things and hitting the dogs till the owner came to restrain them.

                                      So sad but the dogs actually dug under the back yard fence to get the minis...very determined dogs. Hope the horses and family recovers soon; the photo of the minis showed them to be real cuties.
