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!

                  • Nobody 'attacked' you, Snookums.

                    You asked for opinions and unfortunately for you, got ones that didn't dovetail with your view of the world. So instead of maybe actually learning something you decided to throw a tantrum, curse at other posters for telling you the truth, and generally decided to act like a 5 y/o whose ball has been taken away for naughty behavior.

                    Homeopathy claims water can cure you since it once held medicine. That's like saying you can get sustenance from an empty plate because it once held food.

                        • HAHAHA!!! I really dont care. You're all a select "few" of COTH bullies who attack anyone who doesnt think in-line with you're way of thinking. My opening thread asked for opinions & instead I was attacked by a bunch of pro-slaughter wolves.
                          You asked for opinions, but didn't like the opinions that were given.
                          You were actually the one who started to insult anyone who didn't have an issue with the use of horsehide.
                          You were not attacked.

                          People tried to explain to you that horsehide in the US comes mainly from rendering plants. That didn't seem to fit into your argument, so you then made up a "fact" to support your side of the discussion.

                          The bulk of what goes into a rendering plant comes straight from the slaughter house. Rendering plant/slaughter plant... same thing. Little is supplied from owners who couldnt afford to dig a hole.
                          It was then again explained to you that this was incorrect, still without an attack. You then made up the "I called them and asked" post. Some of us already knew (not guessed) where horsehide comes from. And some of us already knew where US Galco gets theirs also, since they're at most of the gun shows some of us attend. So some of us already knew that the new "fact" you posted was incorrect. Not to mention it doesn't make sense to pay so much extra for hides that require importing and the fees attached, not to mention the transport/shipping in. And FWIW, horses slaughtered aren't skinned in a manner for fine tanning. They are, like cows, strip-skinned. The required layer of underlying fat isn't left on and the skin is not removed the correct cut for fine tanning. Fine tanning is the process Horweens and other fine tanners use to produce specific products.

                          So no, the hides cannot come from slaughter plants for this products US Galco) purpose.

                          There isn't any need for the "they told me the truth and lied to you" comments because not only does that make sense only to some high schoolers, I already know the Galco company, their products, a few of their reps and where they obtain horsehide. Not to mention lobbying means you know where all equine-based products are made because you kind of have to know.

                          PLease reconsider the hysterics, insults and language. This is a fantastic spot to learn a whole lot about the equine industry and as a young person who may become involved in it, this is a decent opportunity to expand your knowledge.

                              • How many horses have you kept from the slaughter pipeline, DC? In other words, how many have you taken into your barn, retrained, and found good new homes for? It might interest you to know that many of the posters who have replied to you have done their share, and more. The difference is that we're grownups. And, that we have sense enough to realize that it doesn't matter to the horse what happens to its hide after it's dead. I also reported you, before I saw that someone else had already done so. Foul insults have no place on this, or any other, forum.

                                  This gets so old. When the renderer comes to get your animal ( cow, horse,pigs, sheep, goats, whatever) it is already dead. We need slaughter & rendering plants available for all livestock owners to use . When a horses usefulness here is done why waste what it can provide after it is dead? You guys make no sense.

                                        • Now I'm wondering what the OP would have everyone do with their horses.

                                          Not everyone can bury or afford to pay for cremation. Not everyone will want cremation.

                                          If the bodies can't go to the rendering plant, what happens to them?
