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!

  • Well, that should bring plans to open some plants to a screeching halt. Of course, that doesn't apply to U.S. horses slaughtered elsewhere out of the country, but it's a start.

    Now, I will acknowledge that it is possible to slaughter horses relatively humanely and that there is a high probability that the successful kills greatly outnumber the unsuccessful ones in most if not all of the EU run plants. My problem is that I haven't heard any of the prominent pro people at least acknowledge prior/present problems with the statement that yes, there is still room for improvement and that the plants are responding to this.

    Sorry, but waving pom-poms and stating that the plants are 100% wonderful somehow doesn't quite do it for me.

    As for the bute, why don't we suddenly start giving it to all the cattle in the feedlot and see how that goes over with the inspectors?

      • Sadly most of you are fixated on E.U. There are orders from ASIA...totalling 100,000 TONNES.

        Angela and her group seem to think if they ignore ASIA and its LACK OF PASSPORT that it will just''''disappear'''

          • Publicly reported convictions going back 17 years reveals that:


            75 clergymen have been convicted of, or pleaded guilty to criminal child molestation charges since the Gilbert Authe case in Louisiana in 1985.
            Half of these (38) were Roman Catholic priests, the rest Methodists, Pentecostals, Baptist Ministers, Episcopal priests, etc.

            http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_many_p...f_sexual_abuse

            Susan Vaughan Smith of Union, S.C. was convicted on July 22, 1995, and sentenced to life in prison for murdering her two sons, Michael Daniel Smith, 3, and 14-month-old Alexander Tyler Smith.

            http://crime.about.com/od/murder/a/susan_smith.htm

            This does not mean ALL women who have children will kill them
            This does not mean ALL priests will sexually abuse children

            In ANY system..it is never going to be perfect. THAT is why we have laws. When individuals abuse their position or power be is slaughter or counselling or parenting, we have a process to convict them if they are guilty.

            A slaughter plant can not guaranty that ALL employees will behave in a certain manner...the same as any other employer...

            Laura K..you are from Kentucky...does that mean ALL who live there are inbred, marry their sisters/brothers and only have grade three education?

                Silly, silly Fairfax, how soon you forget we went over the ASIAN market a while ago... I looked up for you the Japanese requirements for drugs, and asked you for your inside info on the other Asian countries requirements.
                That is, I assume you know their requirements for drug residues/testing for imported meats since you insist they don't give a flip... so please, do share, with links. TIA

                Please pretend we haven't had this conversation so I can show everyone the regulations the Japanese government has in place in which they list the myriad of commonly-used-in horses-in-the-US-drugs they do not want in their imported meat... please.

                • I thought that the Japanese had such strict restrictions that they more or less have their own private breeders raising horses to their specifications, then shipping them over live at a certain age so they can "finish them off" before slaughtering them. I believe they also raise their own breed of horses to slaughter.

                  BTW, I really wonder if these people (the prospective U.S. plants) have actually thought this out as to who exactly is going to buy all of this prime meat. I may be wrong, but I believe the EU owns and runs their own plants, and MIGHT NOT have been in the market of non-EU owned produced meat from these plants. From what I have read about Sue, she does not seem to be either a deep thinker.

                  Comment


                  • And here we go with the extremist animal rights propaganda meme. This is why we can never have a cogent discussion about slaughter. Anyone who wants to have a reasonable discussion is forced out by the "they're coming to take away our rights black helicopter crowd."

                    Anyone is is not pro-slaughter is branded as a RARA. Go ahead, talk to yourselves then.

                      You know what, that is roses and daisys compared to that Russian one.
                      This guy is an idiot, but there is nothing gorey about the shot, its clean and the horse is dead. I would rather see all the slaughter plants for horses do it like that. No bolt, no shot gun, No CLUBBING.. sorry cannot get over that.
                      This video is senseless in itself yes but the method of putting a horse down like that is quick humane and accurate!.

                        I believe they do both, breed and import: on the hoof and processed

                        The general requirements and standards are set by MHLW and apply to all types of foods including imported foods. Imported foods that do not meet these requirements will not be allowed entry. These requirements and standards place the primary emphasis on ingredient and manufacturing standards. The Import Notification form should indicate additives,*preservatives, coloring, spices or flavorings. In addition, a certificate with detailed descriptions of the ingredients (names of the chemical compounds, chemical names and international index numbers of the colors,
                        etc.) and brief processing outline can be attached to each shipment in order to expedite import procedures.

                        Regulatory Framework on Veterinary Drug Residues in Food

                        Veterinary drug is defined as any substance that is used for medical treatment of animals including livestock and aquaculture fish and shellfish. The veterinary drugs used in animal production include anthelminthics, chemically-synthetic antimicrobials, and antibiotics. In the Japanese regulatory framework the Food Safety Commission conducts toxicological evaluation as a part of risk assessment under the Food Safety Basic Law. Under the Food Sanitation Law the MHLW establishes the tolerances for residues that may remain in foods as result of the veterinary drug use during animal production with reference to the conclusion of toxicological evaluation from the FSC.

                        The tolerance is normally expressed as Maximum Residue Limit (MRL). The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fishery (MAFF) authorizes the production of veterinary drugs upon the request and establishes standards for applications of the drug under the Pharmaceutical Affairs Law

                        a) Residue Standards under the Food Sanitation Law
                        The Food Sanitation Law prescribes that foods may not contain antibiotics. It also prescribes that meat, milk, eggs, and fish/shellfish may not contain chemically-synthetic antimicrobials. These provisions were established from the viewpoint of human public health, considering safety of veterinary drugs themselves and drug-resistance in micro-organisms, which may result from antibiotics use of these drugs.

                        Since 1995 the MHLW has been establishing residue standards for veterinary drugs. The standards for 30 veterinary drugs including antibiotics, anthelminthics, and synthetic hormone are currently enforced.

                        The residue standards like MRLs for veterinary drugs are established in a procedure similar to those for pesticide residues in food. The FSC conducts safety evaluations of the veterinary drug based upon the information from the required toxicity studies such as chronic study, teratotoxicity study, and carcinogenicity study. When the No-Observed-Adverse-Effect-Level (NOAEL) is established, the Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) is obtained by applying safety factors to the NOAEL.

                        When the ADI is established the MHLW proposes draft MRLs to the Pharmaceutical Affairs and Food Sanitation Council, an Advisory body to the Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare, based upon the result of residue study in the authorized application of the veterinary drug, and taking into account the Codex standards as well as residue standards in foreign countries. The Theoretical Maximum Daily Intake (TMDI) or Estimated Maximum Daily Intake (EDI) is obtained using the drafted MRLs and the food intake data from the national nutrition survey. When the TMDI or EDI is found to be less than the ADI and that there will be no health problem associated with the residue below the MRLs, the advisory body adopts the MRLs.

                        When a substance is found display carcinogenicity together with genotoxicity the ADI for the substance cannot be established. In this case the tolerance for the residue from the substance is established as "Not Detected (ND)" at the level of detection (LOD) in the official analytical method.

                        b) Control of Veterinary Drug Residue in Food

                        The MHLW has a national monitoring programme on residues in animal origin foods. The purpose of the monitoring programme is to confirm the compliance of products in the marketplace. The quarantine stations under the jurisdiction of the MHLW monitors imported products and the local governments monitor the products in the domestic markets. The tests on veterinary drug residues are performed by the official laboratories in quarantine stations and local governments.

                        In October 2003 the MHLW proposed the first draft of the provisional MRLs for the positive list system and requests for the comments on the draft[84]. The provisional MRLs for 647 agricultural chemicals including veterinary drugs are proposed. Around 1,200 comments from domestic and foreign parties were received. The MHLW is going to publish the second draft of the provisional MRLs, incorporated with some comments to the first draft, in Summer 2004 and to request comments on the draft from the foreign governments, consumers and industry sectors. The MHLW will also notify the proposed MRLs to the World Trade Organization (WTO) in accordance with the WTO SPS agreement early next year.

                        http://www.fao.org/docrep/008/y5723e/y5723e0r.htm



                        Effective May 29, 2006, the MHLW implemented new regulations on the permissible MRLs of agricultural chemicals in food. In establishing these new regulations, the MHLW supplemented approximately 10,000 already existing official MRLs of agricultural chemicals with seven hundred and fifty eight “provisional” MRLs9. Together, these MRLs make up the Japanese "positive list."10 All foods entering Japan are subject to regulation under the positive
                        list system.11 Foods containing residues exceeding the MRL levels identified on the positive list are prohibited from being sold or used as food in Japan because they violate the Food Sanitation Law.12 Failure to comply with these MRLs could result in a product’s being banned or the exporter incurring significant expense and time delays while trying to clear the product for importation.13


                        Similarly, veterinary drugs once approved for use in Japan must be reassessed every six years, including a review by the MHLW on existing MRLs for these substances.25

                        Ultimately, the responsibility for compliance with the Japanese positive list rests with the importer of the food products into Japan. Generally, companies use a local subsidiary or other third party as the importer of record. Accordingly, the responsibilities of the exporting company are secondary. Nevertheless, it is likely that importers will require the exporters/manufacturers to provide evidence or warranties regarding compliance with the positive list.41

                        Another option available to U.S. exporters is to have samples of products tested by any of the MHLW official or registered laboratories within the U.S.51 Products imported from the United States do not need to be tested upon arrival to Japan if an analytical certificate from an MHLW-approved laboratory accompanies the shipment.52

                        Pre-testing should be reserved for products that have a higher risk of noncompliance with the positive list based on the information gathered.

                              This does not mean ALL women who have children will kill them
                              This does not mean ALL priests will sexually abuse children

                              In ANY system..it is never going to be perfect. THAT is why we have laws. When individuals abuse their position or power be is slaughter or counselling or parenting, we have a process to convict them if they are guilty.

                              A slaughter plant can not guaranty that ALL employees will behave in a certain manner...the same as any other employer...

                              Laura K..you are from Kentucky...does that mean ALL who live there are inbred, marry their sisters/brothers and only have grade three education?
                              What a silly, childish argument for horse slaughter. If you are trying to relate this to the douchebag from LauraKY's video then you are failing to make a valid comparison using any type of accepted logic.

                              The person in Laura's video is an actual, current employee of the slaughterhouse that wants to begin horse processing in NM. He is advocating for horse slaughter and to be a part of the process of how slaughter bound horses are handled. To relate his desire to allow horse processing at his employer's plant, he chose to shoot that video and post it on social media. Apparently, it has majorly backfired on him and may very well be the catalyst that gets the general public fired up to oppose the new NM plant. A more intelligent person woud have seen the inevitability of a negative public backlash against such a poor choice, but not this moron.

                              The people you referred to in your post are convicted criminals. No one is advocating that those convicted criminals should be entrusted with the welfare of children in any capacity.

                              Even your attempted insult to LauraKY was so poorly executed that I wonder why you continue to try to buffalo us into believing that you are in any way clever with the written word. Let me help you to understand how you can improve your odds next time you try to use this type of insult.

                              The pattern should be Person X has Trait Y, therefore do all People of the X persuasion have Trait Y? Your failed zinger to LauraKY used the nonsensical pattern of Person X has Trait Y, therefore do all People of the X persuasion have Traits L, Q & T? You need to be a bit more clever when you insult people, otherwise it just makes you look silly.

                              • Don't you have to wonder what these pro-slaughter folks are breeding that WE MUST HAVE SLAUGHTER? What kind of 'junk' are you folks creating, that your only avenue to success is slaughter?
