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!

                  Bloodhorse has an article about the plant rebuilding on their site today.

                  The slaughter issue, Pro or Con, doesn't change the fact that what Cavel is doing by rebuilding is perfectly legal and within their rights.

                    I have a question that I always think of when this topic comes up. This slaughterhouse will produce meat for consumption in Europe (according to the bloodhorse article). On every tube of Bute I've ever seen, it says that it is not for use on horses intended for food. Do these slaughterhouses test for substances like that, or is the meat safe once the meds are out of the horses system (after a matter of days?)?

                    I don't want to touch off a huge slaughter debate, because they always go nowhere, but this is something I've always wondered about.

                      Do you eat meat?
                      Do you wear leather? (riding boots, paddock boots, suede knee patches, saddles, bridles, leather tips on bats, etc...)
                      Do you sign petitions or speak out against cattle slaughter? Pigs? Sheep? Chickens? Turkeys?
                      Do you know HOW horses and other animals are slaughtered?
                      OK, bring it on. Like I said, the suit is zipped and I'm even wearing my approved helmet.

                          Oneonone, as I understand it, bute and other medications never went through the approval process needed to become approved for animal livestock use, since it was not being specifically marketed toward livestock animals. It does not mean it is unsafe. That said, I have no idea how those medications affect the meat animal or if you can test for it.

                            I was expecting to get flamed like h*ll because I don't particularly have a problem with horse slaughter and it seems as if a large population of people on this board do. Horses are huge animals and their body parts can be very useful and beneficial to many people in a number of ways. They all have to die sometime, just as we all do, and I think it would be a shame for all the horseflesh in the world to be rotting in the ground when it could be put to good use.
                            Now, all of my horses who've passed are buried on our farm because they were raised and kept as companions. If I had a cow or 2 they would be my companions as well and wouldn't go to slaughter. That's not the business I'm in. But I can accept that there are those who are in that business. Horses that are slaughtered are killed humanely as are cattle, sheep, pigs, etc. and I wouldn't sign a petition or demonstrate to interfere with a slaughter house.

                                    A horse is not like cattle,sheep,pigs,etc...We raise them for sport,rec and of course racing.They are creatures of habit they depend on us for their needs they trust us.Sending them to slaughter is very tramatic to them,the minute they are herded on the killer wagon.You ought to look up John Hettingers article that I believe was in the blood horse or the Thoroughbred times.The name of the article is where wll all the horses go!His article says it all.helped form blue horse charities,at www.bluehorscharities.com. A horses neck is much longer than cattle,when in the kill chute the horse is scared to death being that is all he smells,he will move the neck ,makes it hard to make ia direct hit! He is in support of H.R. 857.

                                      [John Hettinger wrote a excellant article called where will all the horses go,he is a supporter of H.R. 857.
                                      Why is horsemeat only charged a 5% export tariff.
                                      Where as american beef is slapped 20%. This can be documented on the usda site!!
                                      Belgian and the french Co in Texas set up shop here because a majority of our horses are well fed and taken care of.
                                      A lot of people sell their horse not knowing this guy is a killer buyer.

                                        Zipping up flame suit really high and running for cover.

                                        Good. I'm glad they are rebulding.

                                        Not because I think horse slaughter is a good thing, not because I would ever send a horse that route, and not because I don't think it's not a nice way for them to end their lives.

                                        But because the REALITY, not the pie in the sky pollyanna future, but the CURRENT REALITY is that horse slaughter does happen and for my part I'd like that last trailer ride to be a short as possible for the poor creatures. Illinois is a lot closer than Mexico or outer Mongolia, er, I mean rural Canada .

                                        And, I think as a country that we should own up to the fact that some horses do end their days this way. It's alot easier to pretend it's otherwise when the plants are all over the border--out of sight, out of mind.

                                        So as long as there are going to be horses climbing in to trailers bound for slaughter, I'm going to be in favor of their ride being as short as possible.

                                        And for the record, I found that article by Heinrichs?sp? VERY pollyanna. He thinks there won't be an outcry for "simply" euthanizsing racehorses whose careers are over? That the general public won't be just as upset to see the meat man hauling away dead horses who got a needle in the neck than they are seeing live ones go down the road? And that there are homes and rescues just waiting for an OTTB--perhaps he should have talked with some of those who work in those actual fields to find out the reality. Nice idea, and I admire his heartfelt sentiment and beliefs, but his suggestions are just not based in reality.
