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.

  • they stole my horse

    I say they because I believe both spouses were involved in this. She is well a nicely put a wench and well his is there is no nice way to put it but it starts with a P has a few ss's in it a Y ending with whiped...there is of course more details that I will not go into as I dont want it to come and bite me in the buttocks when I take them to court...Nothing bad about me but ya know how the legal system work when envolving a 'well known/ preceived' powerful family in a small country area..

    I called my local law enforcement though the keystone cops would have done much better... They took a report the called the person who I only thought had done this until then. The person admitted in taking Dt then selling him to a person who advertises for 'cull and beef' horses in a local weekly freebie newspaper. the local law enforcement did nothing other then take the report oh yeah they advised me to seek advise from my atty on this.. The person who admitted to taking my horse is still not in jail. This person is still free to continue to live their life while I am a wreck...

    I called the 'cull beef horse dealer' and he flat out refuses to get my horse back and claims he is not liable or that he needs to get him back. So I will be pressing charges against him as well... He to is a well known horse ( not necessarly respected or liked) person in my area...

    From what I can find out in Ohio this offense hold a minimum of 10 yrs in prison with at least a 50k fine more should the judge decide to do more which i will be pushing for.

    go out and hug your horses today...

    Save your horse that the dealer has even if you have to buy him back.

    Or go to court and get a "temporary restraining order" preventing the dealer from selling or disposing of the horse.

    More facts needed.
    How did they get your horses?
    Did you have any business with them?
    Do they say you owe them $ for board or services?
    Do you have ownership papers on horses?
    Where were horses when they were taken? Your land or boarding stable or land of the people involved?

      I'm sorry for your troubles, but a post like this might just bite you back. You sound really bitter and full of hate and maybe that's appropriate to the situation but making this kind of thing public doesn't help your situation if it ends up in a courtroom. Good luck.

        This is one of those deals I'd really like to hear what the other party and police have to say.

          OK:

          1. Whose spouses are these? One (or more) of yours? Married to each other? A friend? A relative? A business partner? A stranger? An aquaintance?

          2. "Nothing bad about me" what does that mean, exactly?

          3. How can they steal your horse? Is he/she your horse? A partnership? Your parents?

          4. Did they take possession on a board lien? A sale/lease gone bad? Do you owe them money?

          5. How old are you?


          I don't know, but there seems that there may be a bit of a 'backstory' to this. However it all shakes out, good luck to the poor horse caught in the middle.

            Put your personal feelings about these idiots aside, and call back the meat dealer... offer to buy the horse back. I bet if you're reasonable about it and talk nice to him, you could do it for maybe $500. One your horse is shipped, he's going to a very painful, unpleasant (permanent) fate. Get him back while you still can.

            THEN you can go all out, pressing charges for theft and reciept of stolen property. You may also be able to sue person #1 for recovery costs in civil court, too.

            Keep all records, take notes every time you contact everyone, etc. Talk to the District Atty's office on pressing charges if the police don't seem too interested in going after the thief.

            Best of luck.

                Your first priority is to get your horse back, make an offer to the dealer.
                Deal with the legal aspects, after you have the horse.

                  The spouses are married to eachother.
                  They used to be our land lord/lady
                  we were in hte process of moving and I was trying to find someone to take the horse and his llama to another location. They ( LL's).
                  Yes I am angry, upset what ever.
                  No we were not in business together other then we were renting the house and barn from them until we bought this house.
                  We had not compleatly moved out and spent most of the day over there except the day the horse disappeared. That day I was sitting at hte Er with my oldest ds.
                  I havent a clue what i ment by 'nothing bad about me' I am running on bout 4 hrs of sleep over the last 3 days...
                  I am old enough to have a 21 yr old ds and ot have been married for 24 yrs..
                  there was/is no partnership or any other ties between 'us' other then renters of a house.
                  Over the last 6 or so months there have been unrelated signs that the person was planning something. IE in april or may calling the humaine society reporting that my horse was 'being starved'.. The humaine officer came out and wondered if the horse was to thin what would a fat one look like. then other little things like things like grain missing the nshowing back up, clippers missing then showing up in a difrent place from where they originally were just little things nothing sepcific to indicate anything really.

                  I called hte dealer and he has already sold him supposedly to a person who will ride him. But will do nothing to get him back. There were some heated said from him on this. So I would think my only way to get my horse back is to file charges against the dealer as well.

                  On Tues as monday is a holiday and the offices are closed, I plan on going to the county prosecutors(sp) and fileing charges.

                  I also plan on going ot the offices of the law enforcement officers and find out why the officer did nothing even after this person admitted to him that they had taken the horse.

                    if the dealer bought the horse for much less than his value, or if he knew or should have known the people did not own the horse, he can be charged with theft by receiving stolen property.

                    If the horse disappeared one day and you discovered it by the next day, I don't understand why the horse was sold by the dealer so fast unless he already had a sale for the horse.

                    This is confusing.

                      I'm having a really really hard time reading your posts.

                      I don't understand how they took the horse and sold it when it belongs to you.

                      If there were all these signs why didn't you move the horse out of harm's way?

                      Why can't you go to the person the dealer sold the horse to and buy him back?

                      People in general don't want to get sued and if you are a rational person then you should be able to explain to the dealer what happened and find out who he sold the horse to.

                        If you can try and track the horse down, I'd try to get him (buy him) back over this long weekend. If you feel this "family" is well known in the area,and local law enforcement will do nothing, keep a record of it. Get your inital report, with the officers' names and badge numbers. Call the Humane Society who investigated you, get that previous report as proof you were the owner 6 months ago. Get all your vet records together, again showing proof the horse is yours. When you get to the Prosecutors, they will want LOTS of paperwork like this, get whatever you can. I'm not sure if the next law enforcement level up is the State Police, but they could be called as well, to report the local PD "doing nothing". Make as many calls as you can, but be polite and firm to all parties. Be sure to note the time, date, and who you spoke to EVERY time. You can usually get results when you come across as businesslike and rational, even though you are upset about your horse. I'm not sure what the problem is with your ex-landlords, but it seems pretty harsh that they would steal your horse for no reason. Good Luck!

                          Translation: They rented a farm. While they were moving out and not home her landlords sold her hrose to a dealer who advertises for kill buying and fast sales. He will not listen or help her. He is not afraid of her and yelled at her.

                          The horse was stolen and the police will do nothing. They do not think a horse is worth enough money to bother.

                          There is no deal gone bad, no back board, no excuse. They just sold her horse to a kill buyer while she was not home.

                          In hindsight she might have seen signs they were not good an honest people, but who the HELL expects someone to sell your horse????!!!!!! What signs would make any of us worry about that?

                          Her brother is a lawyer and OP needs to realize the police will be no more help on Tuesday then they are today. YOU NEED TO GET YOUR BROTHER to do exactly what C&C already told you to do. YOu CANNOT file charges i fteh police do not want to take them.

                          In all the stolen horse threads on COTH we are still waiting for one case where the police helpd at all. Get over that and get your horse back NOW with your brothers help.

                            Sorry about your horse. Hope you get him back. I know you are working to get him back, but maybe you can have other groups involved to help? I don't know this one personally, but read a lot of good stories about them
                            http://www.netposse.com/
                            Maybe someone can help? Police may be more willing to do what is needed if they have a little push from different sources.
                            But if so it looks like a open and shut case-unless your landlord claims that you owe them rent/board and so they took the horse to compensate for that?? They should have done it through court order if that is the case-but otherwise best luck and hope you ge thim back.......A good lawyer always helps things along...

                              It's Columbus day - Not Christmas !


                              I had a horse stolen a year ago - l-o-n-g story but I recovered it from the thief in the middle of the road not far from my house.

                              Clever "B" cased my place really good - but not good enough! I can not get the S.A. to prosecute as it was an old schoolie she had taken a fancy to and not worth much to anyone but me. She was younger and meaner than me, but I prevailed and brought him home!

                              Law enforcement was USELESS as it was a change of shifts in my quite rural location. She even had checked that out prior to the heist. Even drugged my dogs But she did not count on my Son walking in on the heist or me in the house taking a RARE nap from driving my Dad over 1K miles to a funeral the day before.

                              My advice? When law enforcement and S.A. would not help me I took it to my attorney who took it to her landlord and got her evicted. At least she has left the state now!

                              The schoolie was sold by me to another party and moved far away to protect him from this LUNATIC! She swore she would come back for him. Based on the crappola she called horse flesh at her rented farm he would have been a STAR!

                              Now my place is fort knox - no one comes in or out without the bells and whistles going off!



                              Call an attorney and GET YOUR HORSE BACK TODAY!

                              One question - did you/do you owe the LL any money?

                                Another question, how long were you moved out of the house and kept the horse there? some states have "abandoned property" laws and if you were out of the house for a long enough time they may have considered he horse legally abandoned.
