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!

      I used to be a vegetarian, not particularly against horse slaughter...I'm just wondering what the heck they're thinking. And, I wouldn't be eating American horsemeat even it it was available. I prefer my meat drug and antibiotic free thank you. Did you read the article?

        Please google "horse slaughter" and find out why it's far worse than the fate of cows or pigs. Every step of the way it's brutal. And as a horse owner, I can't help but see how unnecessary and cruel it is.

          Agree. I don't like fish .. but I don't protest because the rest of the world likes it. As long as its legal eat whatever you like. Its your body/your choice.

          As far as the its so much crueler then sheep or cows or chickens going to the abattior then lobby for a more practical or humane method . I am sure there are people out there who love and enjoy those particular animals as pets as well and would be mortified to consider eating them. To each his own

            oh goody, the new slaughter thread...

            First, most horses do not receive an over abundance of medications. Not even in the US.

            Second, even food animals receive medications, dewormer, antibiotics, etc...

              this is my last post here because it will wreck in about 10 min, but i am not against equine slaughter - in fact i am for it - if it can be done humanely.

              it is better for us to do it here than ship them across country lines where we have ZERO control.

                Post the link on the NYCLASS website. Maybe take some heat off the carriage drivers.

                Spent recent week in NYC and really impressed with the horses and drivers.

                  They will actually try to capitalize on it and say, this is where the NYC carriage horses go when they "retire." Betcha $100. They don't care about horse slaughter unless they can allege the horse once pulled a carriage in NYC.

                    yeah, I bet you're right. Probably a bad suggestion.

                        I would try it. But the article is all "eventually" and "not a priority" - my guess is it'll not happen at all, or it'll be only for some kind of special event.

                          I could eat my two right now...they are amazingly able to function drug free. Except for the 4x annual deworming.
                          Which is less deworming than the average beef cow gets.
                          If you eat beef, chicken, lamb/mutton or pork, you're eating the same things the average horse gets.

                          Now I'm not saying I WOULD eat my horses. (so stop clutching your pearls, folks)
                          But I *could.* Maybe I'll mention that to them when I go feed lunch....a little Food Chain Reminder to keep them in line.

                                  Won't work. Trust me, mine is remarkably unaffected by my near-constant threats to make her into sashimi.

                                      I'd try it, assuming it's from Canada and not Mexico (I trust their inspectors more.) I've eaten or sampled cow, pig, chicken, duck, goose, guinea, more kinds of fish than I can remember, crustaceans (before I developed an allergy), bivalves, squid, goat, elk, moose, kangaroo, roe deer, whitetail deer, alligator, rattlesnake, rabbit, bison, snails, and bowhead whale. What's one more species?

                                      (And about the only reason I've never tried insects is they are close enough to crustaceans I'd be somewhat concerned.)

                                        Two things that bother me about this ....

                                        Is it because horse tastes good, or is it about the sensationalism? Is it a good tasting meat, that people will eat and then want to have more of, like pork? I doubt it.

                                        Ok, but beyond that, horses are not raised here, or Canada, for meat purposes. The slaughter house is just the last ride for unwanted or unusuable horses, not animals that have been raised for human consumption. It's not a fine meat product, or a delicacy.

                                        Horses are pets and work animals, not raised for food. I just don't get why these chefs seem to think putting them back in the culinary world is all that important, or necessary. I think they should just go back to serving us organ meats of pigs and cows, or eyeballs, or whatever, if they want some shock value.

                                        I also agree that you have no idea what horse you are getting -- buted, wormed, supplemented -- you just don't know. Could be quite toxic, or not.

                                        And for those that think that the slaughter process is the same for a horse, the techniques used are specific to other species, not to horses. It is cruel, at least to some degree. At least in Canada they try, Mexico, horrible.
