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 agree, the plant was old and needed to go somewhere else and they knew that and were trying their best to run with what they had.

    Any other time, other place, they would have modernized, get their system replaced and stayed in business.




    I have no idea what that last sentence is supposed to mean...


    The next plant might work better... and yet history shows us that new plants do not work any better are not any better neighbors and regulations do not get enforced and fines do not [STILL] get collected...
    Have you not read what Fairfax is posting?

    They have plants that work right now, why keep insisting on what we had here many years ago for a standard today?

    You know, hospitals have been changing all along, lately they have special anti-bacterial soap dispensers in all aisles and in all rooms and they still have problems with compliance and are working on that.

    It is the same no matter where you have any one system, you do the best you can and keep learning and doing what you do best, slaughter included.

    I know many here are utterly clueless about management issues, read some animal rights extremist out of context story and reports and run with it saying see, we need to ban this or that because "they" say it is bad, look at this!

    Well, like in my hospital example, there is nothing that is perfect, whatever we do will have to work best we can, including any slaughter plant that may fall eventually into the new regulations and inspectors, if those are ever given a green light, which is really not a given in today's political environment.

        LOL yes jobs! The plants will create JOBS! Seriously?
        And things have changed, as I said; you don't think that if those issues had occured today with the amount of people with access to the internet it might have been different? As I pointed out previously, look at the downer cow situation: I'm sure that had been happening for years, but with the internet and the spread of information it became a national story that forced changes.

        And you don't think the suggestion of more jobs will affect how polititians will vote on this? Really?

          But doesn't that work in your favor? No demand and they sit empty, and those evil bastards that would build a horse slaughter plant have wasted their money.

          I have never figured out why the anti-slaughter factions aren't spending their resources on making sure the end user is well aware of the possible risks; why not think outside of the box and stop it from the other end of the chain? Again, no demand, no plants running.

            I only buy beef from my neighbor (and I can see how his cattle are farmed) or from a known beef producer. Poultry, I stick with no antibiotics, no hormones. Same for pork, I don't want the 15% added liquid and flavorings, thank you very much. My tofu is non GMO soy, so is the soymilk.

            I wouldn't buy it, even if I liked the taste of horse.

            You would not expect anyone to answer that one?
            That is proprietary information.
            There are markets out there for all kinds of things.

            See, you keep repeating those myths about hormones and antibiotics, no matter how many times that has been explained.
            Now, you are not alone, some clueless waitress did offer their menu choice of "beef without hormones".
            It was promptly explained to her that ALL beef has "hormones", more than they may ever have been used in an implant to improve feed efficiency and that those have been long out of it's system.
            Not only that, those same hormones are 1000x higher in one serving of most soy based products, like a soy-burger, what a surprise.

            There is so much misinformation being repeated out there by those with certain agendas, no wonder people don't know what to believe any more.

              Well Farifax is also one to regurgitate extermist information he insists is cutting edge and his own proprietary knowledge... until it's shown it 's not, and it's not.

              Like the whole 'this issue right now is not drugs but mislabelling!'

              Really?
              That not what my friends in the UK are saying.
              They're pretty PO'd about the 'mislabelling', but they are REALLY PO'd about the drugs they are now learning were found in that meat.

              The plants in Canada that are using the new bolt haven't released the info about improvements that these facilities and implements have made... again, per Fairfax [shall I find the quote?]

              Much has changed over the past few years.

              New plants will be able to meet new standards.

              There is a new type of gun now in the final rounds of testing. I have been told it should be ready to go by October of this year.
              [note the lack of sources for his 'information']


              He [Fairfax/Maxwell] can think what he wants, and write what he wants, as is popular to say 'he's entitled to his own opinion, not his own facts', but since he never offers a link to any actual information, it's hard to take it for more than what it appears to be, regurgitation, his opinion and something he heard someone say once somewhere.

                When do you think the US plants closed?
                They only closed a few years ago, plenty if internet and much of the 'fight' was fought online.

                Do you know how many jobs a slaughter plants creates?
                I'm gonna' guess not.

                  Oh, but they are doing just that.
                  The very illustrious president of the HSUS went on several jetsetting trips all over, to "coordinate" animal rights groups for an international effort to further their agenda of eliminating all uses of animals.
                  One of those efforts was to try to launch their propaganda efforts against all kinds of meats, of course, including horse meat, with all kinds of possible propaganda against meat, they are vegans, you know, in all ways that can be presented.

                    It is not about hormones and ABs.. as has been noted repeatedly, with links to articles in the NEWS in which authorities in the nations where the end product is consumed.. it's about EU banned medications being in the meat that was in the container at the store for the buyer to buy.
                    It's not some fluffheaded waitress... it's the EU and authorities in France, the UK and other locations.

                    That's what I don't get, how you keep pretending that the issues don't exist and attributing it to 'propaganda' and RaRas... when the issues clearly exist and it's clearly not 'propaganda' or RaRas

                      Right here, with relatives in much of Europe. And apparently they aren't doing very well at getting the info out, otherwise why would the issue with drugs in horse meat just now, with the current uproar, become common knowledge there?

                        Well, they suck at it then! I have relatives across Europe, and they were recently shocked when this hit the news and that I was correct in informing them that it wasn't all wild horses in those packages.

                          No, no, I was talking about the myth of hormones and antibiotics in beef, please read what was posted and I quoted and responded to.

                          As for residues in horse meat in Europe, very, very few samples were positive and then at a level that was only statistically significant for lab work, would not have been a health concern for anyone.

                          Yes, there should not have been any residues there of any kind and the powers that be will see to that and fine those that were responsible for that.

                          No one is saying any system is perfect, sorry, don't see where you get that.

                          I don't think you will find anyone here that thinks it was ok to sell any meat, horse or dragon meat, when it was not labeled as such.
                          That is plain fraud and we already have laws against that.

                            Well, if that was not so, that falls under false advertising, unless those marked as such were truly feral horses?

                            We don't know where those horses labeled like that came from, maybe not necessarily from the USA horse market.

                            I wonder if they will also now object to the swiss Laughing Cow cheese company, as cows obviously don't laugh like their pretty drawing shows?

                              Oh? So those in Europe don't like getting horsemeat that isn't wild horses like they thought? Tell me, what made them think it was wild horse?
                              They don't like learning that it's full of EU banned drugs?
                              What made them think it was any cleaner than, say beef? Cause you know beef has ABs and hormones and all kinds of drugs in it...

                                If it came from other than the US, you know places where the horse is supposed to have a passport, that should be even MORE unsettling!

                                If they can't be certain what is/isn't in meat that came with a passport detailing all meds, they really think that EID is accurate and reliable?

                                  If they can't be certain what is/isn't in meat that came with a passport detailing all meds, they really think that EID is accurate and reliable?
                                  I have heard that Argentina and Brazil have many feral horses and that they export that meat all over, Australia also, but much less, transport is a bigger expense for them.

                                  Not that I know what any one european company is buying, of course.

                                  • They expected it was meat from the mustangs or horses raised for slaughter, not animals that could have been given drugs contraindicated for meat animals. They are not aware of any advertising about American horses possibly having drugs, or any campaigns to make them aware of the risks. It was the current uproar that made them realize that yes, there could be drugs in horsemeat.

                                    So again, where is the effort to inform "the masses" and reduce demand?

                                    ETA: I will ask about the common brands there, but it's late there, so will have to be next week.

                                      There were/are billboards and a TV show that showed a video from the US.
                                      I could have it wrong but I remember that it was shown on a Swedish Entertainment Tonight type show?

                                      The market the show focused on was one that, like your relatives, was under the false impression [who knows why, maybe the packaging?] that it was wild US Mustangs.

                                      I would assume that the people buying the airtime on TV or billboards would spend their first $$s on sharing the info where the most consumers are, that's what I would do if it was me deciding to do it. But I am not them, so I have no idea where they did it.

                                      I bet Google knows.

                                      Indeed. Google.


                                      “Kassensturz,” a highly rated investigative reporting show concentrating on consumer issues, devoted an entire episode to our global campaign and the evidence discovered in our 2012 investigations. *Kassensturz has a broad reach in Europe and undoubtedly the evidence uncovered in the report came as a shock to their audience and has a far reaching effect. *This exposé, which aired on February 19, 2013, was a culmination of our year-long investigations and was an important and powerful step to not only raising consumer awareness but also promoting permanent change. *

                                        Like the whole 'this issue right now is not drugs but mislabelling!'



                                        Really?
                                        That not what my friends in the UK are saying.
                                        They're pretty PO'd about the 'mislabelling', but they are REALLY PO'd about the drugs they are now learning were found in that meat.

                                        The plants in Canada that are using the new bolt haven't released the info about improvements that these facilities and implements have made... again, per Fairfax [shall I find the quote?]



                                        [note the lack of sources for his 'information']


                                        He [Fairfax/Maxwell] can think what he wants, and write what he wants, as is popular to say 'he's entitled to his own opinion, not his own facts', but since he never offers a link to any actual information, it's hard to take it for more than what it appears to be, regurgitation, his opinion and something he heard someone say once somewhere.
                                        Read the articles. It is an issue of TRUST as the major disconnect. The plant in Mexico that closed down..you remember where the anti slaughter groups all held hands and congratulated each other...it was done without knowledge of the French Vet association or the Department that oversee's meat and foot imports. Everyone on Coth who has a reputation of anti slaughter ALL stated it was due to contamination, drugs and no passports...bute... truckers claimed they would never be able to haul again..New Holland suspended ALL auctions..everyone cheered...close down those b tards ..evil killers. Then the truth came out...Angela...I think you were the one or at least one of them who claimed I was lying and inventing my contacts...oh oh...then y'all went silent and off the boards. Business as usual following Monday...ONLY plant closed was Mexico...AND that was due to a LABELING problem. That was sorted out within 10 days and that plant was right back at the business on hand.

                                        Your ongoing claims I never provide links is now silly. I have, I do..and if I don't know..I will state I have no proof. Read other posts., You, on the other hand provide links to 15 year old studies and having, buy your own admission NEVER put a foot in the slaughter plants for any reason..restate what has been said by the anti groups over the years.That than just say I never provide links...please show me on this thread where I have not and you would like to have the basis of the information I have printed I have just looked and I don't see any requests orther than the same old ones I have already answered.

                                        Your problem is you don't like the information I provide...if you don't agree with it...then you refuse to acknowledge it. There you have the rest of the story

                                          Much has changed over the past few years.

                                          New plants will be able to meet new standards.

                                          There is a new type of gun now in the final rounds of testing. I have been told it should be ready to go by October of this year.


                                          Nothing is ever 100%. Even a vet euthanizing a horse, or a pet can go wrong

                                          It’s being described as among the biggest commercial frauds ever uncovered. And earlier this week the horsemeat scandal ended up hitting Swiss consumers too. After initially denying it had any affected products, the Swiss supermarket chain Coop ended up pulling lasagna off its shelves. There’s a health risk, lack of transparency, but above all, now, there’s a lack of trust. WRS’ Lucas Chambers reports:

                                          This is reported by the WRS (World Radio Switzerland)..over here we call it the equivalent to the National Enquirer..radio style

                                          Switzerland is the home of the Rara's for Europe. I always find their indignation unique...they do eat horse meat...it was found listed as beef...but NONE has been tested as unsafe...I can't find any reports stating drugs were discovered...but again...this coming from THE COUNTRY that invented secrecy and fought against the U.S. over having to disclose numbered bank accounts...(they sure hid a lot of WWII stolen money)

                                          Horses BRED for slaughter? in Canada and the U.S. ? They did take pictures of the feedlots which have the horses to comply with the passport 6 month demand but those are NOT breeding farms...Switaerland was either second or third on Wayne Paceles European trip.

They are also stating that there is evidence that horses that previously tested positive do NOT give the same test as low as 120 days after
