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!

    No, the bigger concern is *not* the rescue.
    The bigger bloody concern is that, even though there is more than adequate evidence that the owner of these horses neglected them beyond any defensible level, *you* still think that people who said "enough!" are blameworthy.

    Just. stop. now.


    This rescue repeatedly shows the same 5 horses for shock value and conveniently does not include pictures of the other horses. The other horses just so you all know were in good shape with the feet done.
    So. what.

    That's like excusing a horrific cases of child abuse by saying 'well, they only tortured and abused the one foster kid--their own children were fine".

      Lets not forget this doesn't seem to have been the first time either, for what some have reported.
      There seems to be something seriously wrong with this person.

        From what i have read on another web site, there is more to this story than you all know. Out of over 20 horses only 5 were in poor shape. I wont go into why as there is no excuse. HGS? Home of the naive? And only 5? However, the bigger concern now is the rescue, who did no intake pictures, and turned down offers from other rescues for help. They did intake photos of animals they didn't receive immediately after the seizure. Not all rescues/counties want those made public until there are charges. Just because the general public is nosy and wants all the dirt ASAP doesn't mean they get it. This particular rescue is suspect at best, along with why and how the horses were seized. Rescue didn't seize. Why the horses were seized. A moron missing his head would guess it had something to do with the downed starved horse that was euthanized and a handful more with Aladin feet and bones sticking out. And the owner was suspect too...in multiple past cases. For the naive: when an animal seizure happens, they typically seize ALL animals. Not just the ones anonymous silly people online think should be seized. This rescue repeatedly shows the same 5 horses for shock value and conveniently does not include pictures of the other horses. The other horses just so you all know were in good shape with the feet done. You were there? You know that? Or are you going on the silly conspiracies from HGS? And all rescues show the worst cases. Rescues run on donations. Show photos of decent looking horses and nobody donates.
        This rescue now has 100 horses, people did line up to take them and the rescue ignores them. I understand the concern now is, that because the majority of them are well bred mares, the thought is the rescue is using them for breeding. You understand? Again, you were there? And now know their thoughts? Amazing. BTW, every single breeding nightmare that does this to their stock says the exact SAME thing: Most were healthy and worth a ton and great lines and the rescue/authorities just stole them to make MONEY! And it's always always always complete and utter bullshite. The only thing i will say, and i am not excusing the lady at all for the 5 horses, ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE, but the seizure was not legal in anyway shape or form. You're the authorities now? You can make exact statements like these as facts...how? And if it wasn;t legal, the authorities there will handle it. Or is the entire legal system in on the conspiracy to steal colored horsies and make millions off of them too? This is just what i have read on another forum, along with court documents that were posted there. I took a peek through the silliness there on HGS too. They know law as well as I know astrophysics. And for the record...I don't know squat about astrophysics. I probably didn;t even spell it correctly.
        I did see some pictures of the other horses and they were NOT skin and bone by anyway shape or form. As stated before...starve one to death and let at least 5 more get almost to that point as they hobble around on excrutiatingly painful feet someone couldn't be arsed to run a rasp over and when your animals are siezed, they will take every last one no matter what shape the rest are in. And if they had left the rest there and those went downhill, the same silly people would be upset about that too.
        Most people that knew the lady felt the herd should have been split up between all the rescues that wanted to help, as the rescue that has them is crying for hay. Because that is how animals should be handled when seized...they should ask those who knew and/or are friends with the one who killed one and was trying to kill a few more how THOSE people think the animals should be distributed.
        ALL rescues "cry" for hay and help when they take in a decent number of animals. Not a single one anywhere can handle a large scale seizure financially without help. None keep an account with an enormous sum in it just in case at some point they get another herd brought in.

        Is this rescue the best? Is it wonderful? Who knows...you and I certainly don't know. And the folks on HGS certainly don't either. Sure they definitely could screw up, happens often with rescues. But one thing is for sure...good or bad that rescue is an ENORMOUS improvement over where the horses were.

            Five horses out of 20 is 25% of her herd.
            Even if, as I read earlier on this thread, her herd was actually over 30... some people find that an acceptable percentage?

            Yup so valuable that *horrors* the rescue might breed or sell them at a 'profit' [cause nursing them back to health is so cheap, right?]... when the owner/breeder/abuser who was in the actual industry could not do the same? Yeah, that's likely.
            This was the same claim/theory they held out re: Marsha Parkinsons seizure which ended with a neglect plea on the part of Marsha- it was a land grab and a horse grab. Oy!
            The conspiracy theorists... *shaking head*... give so much credit to the 'rescues' marketing and ability to sell horses that were not selling prior.... it would be laughable if it were not sad.

              This is worth repeating. I've been on seizures, I've helped coordinate them with law enforcement officials. We take photos of -every- horse on the property, even the dead ones. Heck, if someone ever got hold of of my lap top, they would think I had a thing for dead horses. Because I have case files full of photos of dead horses. . When the media asks for photos or when we ask for funds to help with the horses' care, we select a couple of photos to use. We don't release all the photos as they're considered evidence.

              I think the rescue looks a bit poorly run - but that's from the internet. I'm not there in person. AND just because the rescue may not be the best run rescue in the country doesn't mean the seizure of horses wasn't justified. The rescue doesn't get to decide when to seize or what horses to seize, law enforcement officials make that call.

              Cases like this show why I don't defend or condemn on the internet. There's often information that we're not privy that may explain the details we question. I do try to come in and educate on procedural matters, because I think it is important that everyone understand how these things work.

                      That is a head shaker...and it happens way too often.

                      It's bad enough when a breeder does these horrid things to their animals, causing serious suffering while pretending nothing is wrong so as to keep up their own appearances.
                      There's always the reason of: Well they're cruel, uncaring and stupid.

                      But then to have others who will pipe up who believe them, defend them and come up with absolutely inane conspiracy theories in an attempt to explain blatant neglect, abuse and cruelty. It's unbelievable!

                      Breeders try giving away for FREE their "well bred excellent stock" to anyone who will take them, can't find a single taker and yet a rescue and the AC STOLE valuable animals to make a fortune off of them! After they spend a fortune (on animals nobody wanted for free) getting them healthy again.

                      And now we know why this keeps happening. Not only are there people dumb enough to not overproduce stock that isn;t selling, but there;s a whole 'nother subset of morons willing to believe it's all a conspiracy too. WAY too many dumbasses in the equine world.
                      You jump in the saddle,
                      Hold onto the bridle!

                        • I've been looking at NNER's site on FB every now and again, when I get a wild hair to do so, someone said the after pics don't match up markings-wise with the before pics. For some reason, with Paints, I cannot tell Paints apart in a herd situation. Appaloosas, no problem, I can spot one particular horse in the middle of a herd of spots, but Paints? Nope. So, does anyone know if the before and after pictures match up markings wise??

                          • I do not care about the politics behind the rescue. I really don’t. Unfortunately there are many rescues run by the horse equivalent of the “crazy cat lady”.

                            But Dorothy “coloredcowhorse” is an ANIMAL ABUSER – she is the despicable hoarder. People like this make me SICK AND ANGRY.

                            Dorothy STARVED and neglected horses – look at this poor feet?!? Look at their skin!!! Ribs all round – yes, only some were close to death skinny, none were healthy.

                            Dorothy has shown a pattern of ANIMAL ABUSE.

                            STOP going after the rescue, no they are not the “bigger concern!” Its crap attitudes like that, that allows sick in the head animal abusers to keep doing what they do.


                            Like said early on this thread – If you can’t afford them, don’t keep them, and sure as hell do not breed them. Like I said then, this would NEVER happen to me or my animals – because I would never get so deep over my head.

                            You have to be mentally ill to do this to horses you see every day. Dorothy should never have horses again.

                            Those poor SUFFERING animals.

                              STOP going after the rescue, no they are not the “bigger concern!” Its crap attitudes like that, that allows sick in the head animal abusers to keep doing what they do.


                              Like said early on this thread – If you can’t afford them, don’t keep them, and sure as hell do not breed them. Like I said then, this would NEVER happen to me or my animals – because I would never get so deep over my head.

                              You have to be mentally ill to do this to horses you see every day. Dorothy should never have horses again.

                              well, with hindsight being 20/20, you are correct.

                              However, as the facts trickled in, it was not apparent, because, well, things have been done wrong in the past as well.

                              So yes, the lady is now a 2 time convicted animal abuser.
                              And hopefully she will not repeat it a third time.

                              That does not however touch on the issues on bad rescues and bad seizures.
                              Yhey can intersect with abuse problems, or stand alone as nightmare to be dealt with.

                              Because bad seizures did happen in the past we have to be vigilant.
                              Because the animals end up in just as bad a spot.

                              Are all cases bad?
                              I sure hope not.
                              But like abuse, one single case is too much.

                                But Dorothy “coloredcowhorse” is an ANIMAL ABUSER – she is the despicable hoarder. People like this make me SICK AND ANGRY.

                                Calm down, you're going to stroke.

                                As I see it, the rescue gets the big eyeballs on them to keep things on the up and up. Just because they took in the horses doesn't mean they get a free pass. From what I've seen, the beginnings of the seizure, they were in deep water for a long time but, if the markings match up, they seem to have helped some of the horses. The ones I saw had some weight on them and hooves and some skin problems were being taken care of. They didn't seem to know what they were getting themselves into at the beginning (understatement). But, they don't get a free pass because they took in 34 MORE horses to add to the many they had before. I've been concerned about that, not to mention the hard winter we've had out this way.

                                Actually, if I still drove a big rig, I would make a point of swinging by to see how things work there, up close and personal. I used to go through Wells about 2-3 times a month.

                                • And Dorothy was enabled by those willing to believe her lies and take issue with the rescue instead.

                                  People DEFENDED her without knowing the truth - and yet are willing to go after the rescue knowing even less.

                                  Would have been better if the horses never needed to go to a rescue. If this sicko hadn't bred and starved horses.

                                  This crap will keep up unless the horse community does something about it.

                                    Whoah....

                                    you are reaching a bit far here.

                                    Not sure how you can enable on the net.
                                    it's not like everybody cheered her on to breed more or buy more.....or gave her more horses....
                                    she posted a few stories, seemed to have it together, even to the person meeting her.

                                    Even now going after the rescue?

                                    With the exception of texan....who, btw summed up the problems as the seizure was going down....I don't think anybody is going after the rescue at this point. Although it does not mean they are indeed clean. Nor crooked....I don't think anybody can really tell from here.

                                    Hindsight being what it is....

                                    but as it went down, there was a lot of condemning without knowing the truth, too. It was not clear whether or not it was right or not. from what we knew. Be sure to keep that in mind. Should things go south for you you might experience it as well.

                                    Oh yeah, right. Nobody condones abuse and neglect.

                                    But we cannot accept bad seizures either. Both sides of the coin need shining up.

                                    • Around these parts, you're innocent till proven guilty. I don't understand the legal aspect of it but she got 30 days, fines and community service. The rescue didn't do themselves any favors acting as they did. They seem a bit more open now, a bit more relaxed about the whole thing, not so snippy and defensive.

                                      However, I just checked a bit ago, they are in the hole to the tune of $35,000 (yes thousands) and only have 10% of that covered. That's just for DR's horses since September, never mind the howmanyotherhorses. Now, you tell me, they aren't getting into some sort of deep hole they may not be able to climb out?? As an aside, how do you spend $35K for five months? Seems a bit high to me but I'm not good with math figuring all the angles.

                                        considering where they are with the whoknowshowmany horses they have....vet care transport...I can see the bill being high....I don't think hay is cheap there....

                                        However....
                                        that is a lot of cabbage to to owe...bad business for sure in the horse world.

                                        (added to say, assuming they have 100 rescue horses as mentioned somewhere, that is not even 90 bucks a horse a month, assuming my math is right)

                                        • I went back to reread the rescues FB page, it seems they do need help now. Due to a family illness, they are seriously in the hole. $35K for DR's horses and only 10% covered by donations and the other money was paid for by the rescue owner. Only now she can't do it anymore.

                                          So, she is asking for more donations. She seems to be pretty open at this point. Can donations go to her to repay her for what she has personally put out or is it only supposed to go for future work done on the horses? I'm not clear on this. Or does it matter?

                                          She does have some horses, don't know which ones, up for adoption soon.
