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!

    Wrong. I expect those who claim the road to slaughter isn't a terrible end the vast majority of the time for the horse, to be able to back it up. That is all. You can't, because there isn't any proof anywhere. Even for someone like me who can and have many times killed an animal. You can't because it doesn't exist.

    Alagirl, for the most part I think you are an okay person, objective etc. but on this subject you are very dogmatic. I honestly wonder why?

      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 don't either. That would seem to be a logical next step. But that doesn't get the real RARA's the kind of publicity they're looking for. No photos, for example.

      • That last post of mine brings me to question. How many of you pro-slaughter folks have killed an animal up close and personal? Especially since it's worse for me now as older person in the few years. How many of you have seen an animal suffer from a bad kill lately, you know the last couple years? Boy howdy, I bet nary a one of you answer.

          It's great that they are starting to...but this show was this year. And everything I can find about it was 2012, or the show you mentioned.

          Why, when slaughter was forced over the borders didn't anyone take that time to start a campaign to show the end user the possibility of drug contamination instead of wringing their hands over transport? Take the $$ everyone spent to fill the KB's pockets by buying overpriced horses from them to save them, shut down the demand and save more that way.

          You want to stop it? Then kill the demand; as long as there is demand, someone will fill it (Economics 101).

              Have I? Yes. In the last couple years, no. Of course that would because of a cross-country move to an area where waiting for a vet didn't involve hours.

              Bad kills? That would be a couple vet-assisted euthanasias; things went incredibly wrong and I still have nightmares, unfortunately.

              Having been "up close and personal" for both gunshot and chemical euthanasia, I can say without a shadow of a doubt that chemical euthanasia is nicer for the owner; it was faster for the animal by gunshot.

              Been there for cattle, both emergency situation and slaughter. Been there for pigs.

              And actually, I'm against the current horse slaughter situation; the long rides, the lack of oversight by an impartial party. Set it up right and I have no problem with it.

                Why do we have to back up anything?

                Slaughter is killing, so is euthanasia.

                Killing is Killing.

                • Blah blah blah killing. Blah blah blah killing. Apparently you don't know the difference between a good death and bad death. Wish I could live in your fantasy world where all death's are equal.

                  I watched both my parents die horrific deaths believe me the road to death can be a nightmare. I just really hope we as a species could be better at the delivery for animals and people alike. However with folks like you around FAT chance, the period before death doesn't seem to matter. Even though people who know anything about slaughter, for starters, the manner of death is the difference between a good steak and bad one.

                    I notice you've said that you have a few old retired horses at your place, though. Why have they not gone on to this "higher use" you so extol? You don't believe in leading by example? No one has denied you your "right" to do so . . .

                    There are close to 3,000 people besides us reading this thread. Due to the lurid descriptions and links, I'd bet most of them now have a pretty clear idea what happens after the auction, and I'll bet this thread is responsible for shudders, nightmares, and a lot of extra hugs for Dobbin all across America today.

                    The situation as it now stands is a fate no decent person will knowingly consign their horse to. Public sympathy runs about a thousand to one against building more U.S. plants for this industry. The entire future of horse meat in Europe is in disarray at the moment. Anything else is pie in the sky that probably won't happen.

                    Probably time we all moved on to something more pleasant.
                    I believe the 3000 readers will start to evaluate on their own. They will see that the slaughter industry left much to be desired but it was also stopped m,any many years ago. Canada has made significant changes but not all plants are "up and at it" Quebec still have changes to make.

                    You can repeat over and over but it is not true. The horse meat in Europe is NOT in disarray. Check the papers who are reporting it. They tend to be the equivalent of our National Enquirer. The public are concerned about the lack of listing it on the label. They want to know WHAT they are eating.

                    Asia is a HUGE market and exceeds the European market at the current time and they do not even require the passport system.

                    Since the majority of the posters are recycling 10-15 year old videos (but they are getting sneaky by changing dates making it look like that are current) viewers are staring to catch on.

                    On another thread there was a video from Fort MacLeod and they claimed it was current. They had it on u-tube..only problem was the workers could be identified. Two of them had been gone from employment at the plant for over 8 years. The RCMP contacted u-tube and it was removed.

                      So if we are nice to the horse before we kill it, it will taste better?

                        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.
                        I stated the bolt was in testing. I was looking forward to the release of information regarding it.

                        I volunteered at Fort MacLeod. They do not do press releases as to changes or improvements. Why would they. YOU and anyone else can schedule a tour I have explained the changes made on numerous occasions.

                        These are not earth shattering changes...different chute systems and higher siding. The way they move the horses into the chutes is not hurried

                        You don't want to believe them..but then you also have never travelled to see for yourself. I have explained how one can get involved..It does make a difference. Oh Wait..it means travelling on your own dollar and donating your own time.

                        Let see... I HAVE BEEN TOLD...and I mention October. If I had more information I would post it. That constitutes a lack of proof?

                        Gosh..you really are scrapping the bottom of the barrel.

                          Animal angels has been doing a lot of TV spots overseas explaining where the US horsemeat comes from, transport, slaughter conditions, and the fact that many of the horses are racehorses and none of the US horses have their meds tracked.

                            Actually yes, LAst summer, Several Squirrels and chipmunks, Terrible problem and I am a gardener. Shot them myself. Most clean a couple needed second shots. No death is not pretty. I still feel that because horse folks are so emotionally involved with horses we put HUMAN emotions to the slaughter issue. Wondering what the horse is feeling or thinking. We put our own emotions to the situation. I am far more concerned with the daily non killing abuse that goes on with horses at the hands of neglectful bad owners.

                                We know, the abuse card again.

                                We can show videos of police beating people and make a case for all police being brutal abusers that are policemen only to get a chance to beat people up.

                                Right, about like animal rights extremist videos and stories of abuse in slaughter.

                                Yes, those that have been in slaughter plants and know how they work can tell you "it ain't so" until they are blue in the face, so can practically every policeman out there, but see, there are those videos and stories and conviction of those horrible policemen, there is our proof.
                                We need to ban slaughter and policemen.

                                  Signs of underground activity were observed during the survey. At New Holland, one arriving trailer left without unloading when its driver saw the first author at the unloading dock. At one of the slaughter plants, horse numbers greatly decreased during the last day of observations. Word was out among the dealers that they were being "watched" for bad horses. The load which contained the Belgians and carriage horses was a load that the dealers had collected that was not fit for sale at the New Holland auction. As our days of observation increased the incidence of carcass damage caused by rough truck drivers with sticks may have decreased. People knew they were being watched.

                                  There's also a study Temple Grandin did when she worked on making a pig slaughtering plant more humane AND more efficient with fewer accidents... in which after a few months of doing things on their own after Ms Grandin left, they slid back into their old ways of doing things... slid back into the old habits that were less safe, less efficient and less humane.

                                  That's how the world works, when people are watching, those being watched tend to toe the line.
                                  When not being watched things go to hell in a handbasket.

                                    There's also a study Temple Grandin did when she worked on making a pig slaughtering plant more humane AND more efficient with fewer accidents... in which after a few months of doing things on their own after Ms Grandin left, they slid back into their old ways of doing things... slid back into the old habits that were less safe, less efficient and less humane.

                                    That's how the world works, when people are watching, those being watched tend to toe the line.
                                    When not being watched things go to hell in a handbasket.
                                    then take a job there....

                                      Signs of underground activity were observed during the survey. At New Holland, one arriving trailer left without unloading when its driver saw the first author at the unloading dock. At one of the slaughter plants, horse numbers greatly decreased during the last day of observations. Word was out among the dealers that they were being "watched" for bad horses. The load which contained the Belgians and carriage horses was a load that the dealers had collected that was not fit for sale at the New Holland auction. As our days of observation increased the incidence of carcass damage caused by rough truck drivers with sticks may have decreased. People knew they were being watched.

                                      Right, years old study that shows management needs to tighten up.
                                      Well, good news, it has, as it should.

                                      So, you want to ban slaughter because someone, somewhere was not doing their job right years ago and I am sure still today, but much less apt to, you can also find someone not doing their job right, a plant not being perfectly managed?

                                      You know, that comes under regulations and supervision, happens in all we do in life, is NO reason to ban anything over it.
                                      Banning slaughter because someone, somewhere, some time did or didn't do something right is throwing the baby out with the bath water, eliminating one more use of animals, as animal rights extremists are working to do.

                                      Sensible people work for animal welfare, they see that what we do with our animals, anywhere, be the best we can do, even in slaughter, not on trying to eliminate this or that use we make of our animals.
                                      Why is that such a hard concept to understand for some?

                                        Here's a study on the relationship of stress hormones and the quality of meat (not in horses), so I would think so.

                                          You keep insisting it has gotten better, that regulations are better and enforced, but you never offer a source for that information that can be viewed.
                                          Unless you can prove that things have changed, why should we blindly believe it has because someone on the internet says it has with no documentation [new or old]?

                                          Then in 1996, at the request of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Grandin began to audit processing plants, checking their compliance with both government and industry standards. She devised a scoring system with specific data points -- what percentage of animals are killed on the first attempt, how many cows are making noise in the pens, and so on -- that allowed her to grade plants.
                                          The results were abysmal: Just a third of plants passed her requirements for stunning cattle, killing them with a single shot.

                                          By contrast, the USDA’s inspection system still has many gaps. A General Accounting Office report in January found many inspectors did not report violations of federal slaughter regulations, often because they were unsure of how to apply the law.

                                          she found even most failing plants were 90 percent compliant -- but they never improved on the remaining 10 percent

                                          Indeed, workers and their training are a huge challenge.*

                                          she worries that industry practices, if left unchanged, become standard. “Bad becoming normal,” she says.
                                          So while Grandin takes animal activists to tasks for ignoring the beef industry’s improvements, she plans to keep showing up at the slaughterhouse gate. “The plants have gotten it,” she says. “What we’ve got to do is maintain them. We can’t let up.”

                                          Like other divisions of agriculture, slaughterhouse and "meat"-processing workers are predominantly people of color living in low-income communities. Historically, a significant percentage of the workforce has been African American. In recent decades, an influx of Latin American workers has been seen across the country, partially due to active recruiting by the corporations. Today, approximately 38% of slaughterhouse and "meat"-processing workers were born outside
