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!

      Horses go because they are sick, lame and otherwise of no use to someone.
      Chickens, cows, pigs, goats and sheep which are the main animals raised for food here in the US are all dewormed and some are medicated if needed. It might surprise you that many antibiotics used on animals are also the same we humans use. They are just labeled differently and the doses are changed according to the animal it is given to. There are withdrawl times listed on everything so that if you have an animal that is intended for slaughter you can make sure the withdrawl time has passed before doing so.

        Animal management is an ongoing learning process.
        As circumstances change, so do what works and doesn't, for many more reasons that is obvious.
        Just think on how many used to manage horses years ago, how they trained and how much more we know today.

          Yeah, that whole "golly gee whiz" OP had chumming written all over it. The morally superior indignation over the ensuing wreck was a nice twist though.

If they did have such great powers, there would be no debate about horse slaughter because they would have already made sure it will never happen again in the U.S. As much as some organizations try to put an end to the carriage horse industry, last I checked, the carriages in most cities are still operating on a regular basis.

            PETA is one of the groups you are afraid will have the power to eliminate all uses of animals by humans. Will you please provide evidence they are on their way to making this happen? (Asking this question does NOT make me an animal rights extremist, btw).
            I have the evidence as I worked for them for two years.

            They attend school "work days" that their kids are enrolled at and they go in and explain to children that their parents are EVIL and that pet dog or cat has a horrible life as it is controlled by humans.

            They go to slaughter plants i.e. Fort MacLeod and they throw fire crackers at the horses to make them bolt and injur themselves..all while trying to get it on film making it look like it was workers.

            HSUS has almost 60 million dollars PER YEAR they use for their lobby groups. They employ approximately 50 lawyers..give five in either direction. One of their lawyers is on the agricultural advisory board to the Presidient. Waynes wife runs the Hollywood L.A. branch and they spend MILLIONS on their "movie star" clients..especially the young kids who appeal to a younger audience.

            Stopping ownership has not been achieved due to the lack of money tossed at it by HSUS (not so much PETA as they are very busy in Europe with ALF and other groups.) but it has been stopped because horse owners FINALLY woke up..and they realized they almost missed the bus. The dog show crowd discovered a long long time ago how these groups operate...

            So Jenn..care to share with us YOUR solution to the evil slaughter?

                  Nope....I thought it was just a simple question. Really had nothing to do with Russia, EU, pro or anti- slaughter, animal rights activists, just a pretty neutral question.

                  In fact if I had actually read the other threads on Slaughter, guess I wouldn't have needed to ask this one.

                  The whole question came up because I had someone tell me that a race track trainer was sending horses to rescues that were not adoptable and she knew it. So I looked up the trainer and saw where she had sent several right from the track to slaughter via a known kill buyer. So I thought about all the drugs that may have been in these horses. Pretty innocent, I thought, but guess not.......
                  Normally, I don't read the slaughter threads. I have my beliefs and don't see any need to debate them......

                    Ok, I shall give you the benefit of the doubt. But with 2 or 3 other thread going on at the same time....you know....

                    Truth is, some horses are worth what you can get for the hide.
                    same as with some people (but you don't get to cash in on those)

                    Medications? As stated before, there is more than one outlet for a horse. Human consumption isn't but one of it.

                          That is a cattle magazine, just like COTH is a horse magazine, no "agenda" behind that any more than it is behind COTH.

                          There really is no "cattle agenda", because the industry is as divided by what kind of cattle you handle, just as there is no "horse agenda", some are for dressage, jumping eventing, racing, big lick, rodeo events, ranch work, carriage driving, other driving, all sorts of things we do with horses.

                          With animal rights groups, there is just one focus, eliminate all use of animals, eventually, "free" animals from human "slavery".
                          They have the mega millions and organization those provide them to try to do just that.

                            It takes all kinds of threads, with all kinds of questions, to answer all that is brought forth, yours included.

                            Just don't be surprised that there is so much more to the simplest question than we at times realize.
                            Easy to understand when you think how many people from so many backgrounds we have here.

                              Evidence would be saying 'I worked there for 2 years and here are the papers and photos and____ documenting what I saw'

                              Seriously, have you been on the internet long? Anyone can say ANYTHING, and no, it's not true that 'you can't put anything on the internet that isn't true'.

                              For all we know you're a 12 year old boy in Cleveland who's never pet a horse let alone slaughtered one.

                              How about sharing your solution to the drugs in the meat that the consumers do not want in there? That the government agencies ban from it?

                              Passports for US horses coming soon? How's that going to go over?

                                  The best way to learn is to ask questions and there are no dumb ones.
                                  The way these 'guys' respond to you [and everyone else who doesn't agree with them] says way more about them than it does about you.

                                    Now, now, ease that up, no need to start insulting others here, really.

                                    There are all kinds here, some do teach, some are better at sounding "nice" than others, all have something to say, not all sensible, that is true.

                                    When it comes to horses, remember, two horse people, three or more opinions, that is what makes this so interesting, no?

                                      Passports for US horses coming soon? How's that going to go over?
                                      That evidence was given to my employers...Canadian Rodeo Association and Calgary Exhibition and Stampede. I have, at least, done something regarding Rara groups and also have volunteered at the slaughter plant. What have you done other than post on European forums and refuse to give solutions you claimed you had...and would share// if only.........


                                      Angela..since you do not have ANY solutions...why would you care about a passport or lack thereof.

                                      If all slaughtered is banned and all horses have to be relocated to a urban front lawn I am sure you will find something wrong with that also.

                                      How about YOU share a solution.

                                      Why do you care about drugs in meat. You don't eat horse meat.
                                      Why do you care about any government agencies..You don't eat horse meat

                                      BUT WE ALL REMEMBER..Proud as a peacock you were...yahoo...along with the Canadian Coalition..SLAUGHTER IS DEAD/...WE HAVE PROOF...A truck drive we all know but won't give you his name told us Canada is no longer going to take horses. Mexico has been closed down and so has Canada

                                      Remember YOUR posts Angela???? You claimed it was due to drugs in the meat. One of your buddies claimed she phoned the EU and they told her...NO MORE HORSES..

                                      YOU WERE WRONG....it was (to refresh your memory) only a French vet who temporarily closed ONE Mexican plant due to a label dispute.

                                      Remember how I said I spoke with the politician who confirmed it was NOT the end of slaughter and you, Aber and a few others...Laura etc all said...was that before or after I called the President hahahaha...

                                      BOTTOM LINE...You were wrong...and you still have no solutions.

                                        The best way to learn is to ask questions and there are no dumb ones.
                                        The way these 'guys' respond to you [and everyone else who doesn't agree with them] says way more about them than it does about you.
                                        Don't count on Angela to give solutions. She demands proof...answers ... and yet..provides outdated material to support her opinions..usually the info is 10 years OR MORE in age.. from what I have been told about her European posting..it is very indicative of her Animal Rights status.

                                        Ask her...she has no solutions.

                                          Hpilot...re-read Bluey's response. She was saying..nothing wrong with your posts...many different doors to go through while learning...Angela..of course...wants everyone to shut up. We expose her agenda

                                          Animal Rights and she has no solutions.
