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!

      We need to remember that those drugs are the same we use in human medicine, but yes, we don't want them in the food we eat and there are regulations for that.

      That is one reason all slaughter plants have inspectors and labs in house and test intensively.
      When we export any products, meats or grains or whatever, they again are tested with specific protocols to the product and any residues found will condemn the whole batch.

      Those horse plants we had were very aware of that.
      They had strict testing protocols, as it is much easier to condemn a small batch at the plant than have a whole shipment condemned and so not paid for after all the expenses incurred to get it to other countries.

      In reality, most horses going to slaughter never tested positive for anything.
      Horses are not all under the management of those that happily medicate them at every turn, as some here say they do.
      I find that a bit worrisome and would suggest they check with their vet about that and see about changing something, as it really is not normal to have need for a continuously medicated horse for normal horses in general use.
      They don't find many because they don't test many! One year in the U.S. when the slaughter palnts were operating here they didnt even test ONE! It is all public record!

      http://canadianhorsedefencecoalition...cy-to-die-for/

      "The CFIA acted responsibly by subsequently reporting this finding to the USDA, and no doubt the discovery would have further bolstered the Canadian agency’s ongoing claims of running an effective system and ensuring the safety of the food supply. However, what is not readily brought to the public eye is the fact that the CFIA’s rate of phenylbutazone testing on horse carcasses is an abysmal 0.152% (143 samples taken on 93,812 horses in 2009)."

      and what did they do when they find something? It took a YEAR to send a 'WARNING' letter.

      Lefever created EID's and shipped 120 TB's.... was there a recall? If people only knew what they were eating!

      http://www.paulickreport.com/news/ra...f-them-is-dead

      You can continue the "sky is falling" or everyone opposed to slaughtering horses is an animal rights extremist as no one is buying it except maybe the animal food producers which of course are all in favor of slaughtering horses - they ought to take interest. As more is learned about how inadequate the testing protocals are, they may start looking a little harder at 'regulated food animal testing'. They would be the loudest to cry foul if another country started shipping into the U.S. and undercutting their market, inferior meat products that were produced without any regulations!!

      Extremists are basically bullies. The US is not going to take their side. Extremists are similar to cults. Mentally healthy people do not side with them.
      and this..... I guess if the only thing you have in support of inhumanely slaughtering horses is to align those opposed to horse slaughter as an "extremist", I shouldn't be surprised..... but really? Please do explain!

      • Canadian Horse Defence Coalition has been well known to "falsify" information

        They are an EQUINE RIGHTS organization and they follow the teachings of PETA, HSUS and have featured their "white paper" by Allen Warren..he actually states that many of the equines from TEAM USA and Canada will be sent to slaughter..

        This is the lead in to his story: Aug 07. 2012

        (Note: Written By Allen Warren, this paper not only proposes a change in the legal status of equine,

        but also delves into the pre-1990 history of equine slaughter – Jerry Finch, Habitat for Horses3..

        http://canadianhorsedefencecoalition...-allen-warren/


        I was sure you didn't come up with your ongoing "facts" from your own research...wow..you really do follow the ANIMAL RIGHTS equal to HUMAN RIGHTS philosophy.

        Their informercial is just that.

        TO NATIONAL ANIMAL WELFARE ORGANIZATIONS WITH A PRESENCE IN WASHINGTON D.C. AND OTTAWA: It’s time to remove horses from the death grip of USDA and BLM and introduce national legislation that will redefine them so they are recognized and protected for what they really are, companion/sports animals. The current horse protection bills don’t go far enough. Let’s use the time they are locked in committee to offer amendments to these or new legislation that truly solve the problem.


        I think I have been able to explain and also give a link which clearly proves you are Animal Rights...and yes...you are an extremist

        No need for anyone to respond to you....Your position is very well defined

        • from your link
          This is the determination that virtually all meat from horses raised in Canada and the U.S. contains drug residues that are harmful to human health. While true food chain animals are strictly regulated from birth to slaughter for not only what drugs can be administered but also even what foods they eat, there are no such restrictions on horses and they are commonly given a long list of veterinary medications that have recently been established as dangerous to human health.

          Further, there is no system for life long tracking of horses in North America and therefore no reliable method to determine the history of the use of these medications or even effective test protocols available at the point of slaughter to determine the levels in each animal. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency does do some post-mortem testing but far too little, and these are of muscle tissue rather than the kidney and other internal organs where the real danger lies. Recent tests of finished product in both France and Belgium have determined the presence of toxins in horse meat imported from Canada, proving how inadequate these tests really are. (Note: A link to the complete list of the drugs found in horse meat and their harmful effects on human health is provided at the end of this paper.)
          You believe that anyone that states a fact that isn't in support of horse slaughter is an 'extremist'. You are not helping your 'cause'.

          How about developing and proposing a humane system that would have NO affect on horseowners that don't want to be included and would prohibit adulterated horses from entering a human food chain?

            I do not have a problem with slaughter. I do not support inhumane slaughtering of horses. I do not support an abusive system of slaughter. Nor am I a RARA. Nor do I think anyone who opposes horse slaughter is a RARA. Nor do I support the belief that RARA's (essentially cult members) are going to take away all our animals.

            • Dispatcher...you do not quote word for word from those who "present THEIR facts" as correct when they are known Animal Rights enthusiasts.

              Echo quotes them repeatedly...their whole argument is "drugs in the meat...bad bad bad...lets stop all slaughter"

              The industry in Canada has made major changes and upgrades.

              I have no reason to believe the same would not occur in the U.S.

              Problem is, Anti Slaughter groups hold slaughter to a higher criteria than we, as people, receive in the very best hospitals.

              10,000 horses slaughtered and no problems...then have two back to back problems and this group scream abuse (favourite word as it has now made it that you can't even touch your child on the rear without a potential charge)..but then..that is their goal...one can only VIEW their horse...one must never touch it..

              Problem with ECHO's post is they are from the Canadian group KNOWN to believe strictly in Animal Rights...Equal treatment horses - people

              Echo has not present a unique thought...she sold her horses...feels guilt..and now wants to extend her guilt onto the backs of everyone else.

              • I don't quote from articles, speeches and such because, for the most part they are just opinions. We can make anything we want of statistics so that's kind of useless to quote.

                I have seen RARA crap and just disregard it. The same as I disregard other activist words on whatever they are spewing about at present.

                Horse Slaughter, a very volatile subject. Yet I think we all agree that those of us here do not want to see the horses suffer cruel treatment. And the way horse slaughter goes in some places, from start to finish, a lot of them do suffer cruel treatment.

                  You better listen when the ARAs talk though.
                  they tell you who they are and how they won't stop until they get their way.
                  Kind of like a certain historical figure I won't invoke, he outlined what he was going to do and how he was going about it.
                  And he was disregarded....and look what happened!

                              Naah...It's the defending horse abusers/neglectors that is really tiring...

                                That was a good one..I even laughed although exhausted

                                Last count I was around 640 compared to some you support who are in the tens of thousands.

                                I do work..not traditional of course..but 12 Saddlebreds with me, a commercial pet kennel and the "interview circuit" do keep me rather busy.

                                I gather by your posts you are much younger than I, which is wonderful. Someday, when you have something of value to say and you are paid for it you too might feel a tad bit tired.

                                Until then...just enjoy

                                  Fact finding and research so one has the truth can be quite exhausting.

                                  You should try it sometime.

                                    • Kudos to New Jersey Gov Christie!

                                      http://www.northjersey.com/news/New_...nsumption.html

                                      A new law prohibits the slaughter of horses for human consumption and the sale of horse meat in New Jersey.

                                      “This bipartisan measure is a nod to our decency and respect for horses in our state, ensuring that no horse is slaughtered in New Jersey for human consumption. It also ensures that our highways will not be used to transport horses to slaughter in other states which have not enacted a similar ban on the practice,” Christie said in a statement.

                                      One state at a time....

                                        You missed the point FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION They can still be slaughtered and sent to slaughter...just not packaged and eaten.

                                        She has also been notified that the state can now be held financially responsible FOR ALL HORSES sold at auction. It will be the obligation of the state to provide for each horse that could have gone to a kill for human consumption buyer.

                                        Works for me. It is now estimated ( not official yet) that the state (a very poor one at that) will probably be required to have tax payers spring for over TWENTY MILLION DOLLARS.

                                        She had only done this for the election year. It will be recinded as soon as she gets the financial costs in.

                                        But then this is in Obama's plan. Remove private industry and have the government assume responsibility and spread the costs and the wealth around.

                                        Way To Go New Jersey...

                                          No, I fully understand the point. I have also always understood that slaughtering horses is not illegal, slaughtering for meat is.

                                          And by the way, Gov. Christie is a man.
