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 have been accused of worse....Good information is surfacing due to your thread.

      ANGELA...I decided to call a kill buyer..any kill buyer that I could locate. In the Western Producer (Saskatchewan) there was a man listed so I called him

      He says the passport system is the BEST thing that has happened to the industry.

      The feedlots already have around 38000...yup...no extra zero... that they have been maintaining for over 6 months for about 1/4 of that number.

      Europe does NOT have any solid proof of single ownership for a horse in the past six months which is THEIR requirement. They just take the word of the seller.

      In North America..the horse will have been under the control of ONE agency for a minimum of 6 months.

      In Europe..many sign they know the horse has never had any drugs...but he says they can not prove it. I asked if it would ever reach a lifetime passport...he said not to his knowledge..

      Two slaughter houses in Canada have each opened feedlots..and it is very revolutionary. The horses stay in the very same group from start to finish. Like a herd. Only sickness or injury results in the removal of a horse.

      ALL of this has come to fruition due to the marketplace.

        Oh, okay. But since you stated you didn't know what the Cattle Network was (after posting links to them on a fairly regular basis) I'm glad to see your memory has returned.

          Yeah, I didn't even know that is the name that magazine publishes under.

          There are several cattle magazines, of all kinds, several just for dairy cattle, several breed magazines, all kinds out there, just as we have for horses.
          That one I linked to is called Drovers.
          I could not imagine what you were talking about with that "agenda" comment.

            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?
            First of all, the question was for Bluey, who is the most paranoid of all of you who support slaughter. She posts time and again that if slaughter in the U.S. is made illegal, the next step will be to take away our rights to having horses and riding, driving, them etc. I keep asking her for proof they have the power to do this, and she's not answering the question, and you, Leo have answered it in a round about way without providing the EVIDENCE I asked for, just like Angela Freda posted.

            As for solutions, I've said this before: Go back and read the many other slaughter threads on which I and others have posted solutions. You will also note that every solution that was posed, gets ripped apart by either you, Bluey, Alagirl, 7HL, Lynwood, etc.

            I don't believe you will support a solution. If you do, why not start a thread entitled "Alternatives to Slaughter, post your ideas." ?

            I'm sure there are many people on this thread who would like to share ideas, unfortunately, anyone who is against slaughter is immediately labeled a RARA or Animal Rights Extremist and are insulted. You don't believe me, just go back and look at older threads. I don't blame people for not wanting to participate and share ideas because they aren't treated with respect.

            Case in point:

              Case in point:
              You got that backwards.

              Every time someone posts about the ban slaughter drive, certain posters, I won't call them out or say what I think of them, as you do there, jump right in with all those myths and misinformation animal rights extremists use for their propaganda.

              I am not saying if we want to have or not slaughter, I want to say we should not ban slaughter on animal rights extremists agendas, because in the end, their ultimate goal is to ban all we do with animals and slaughter is just one more step in that ladder to them, for us a good place to try to stop them.
              Read the already posted links on who those groups are and what they are on record saying they want and yes, it is ending animal uses by humans, "freeing" the poor slaves they think animals are.
              That includes the horses we breed, train and ride and all other we do with them.
              You really can't deny that, if you like who is pointing that out or not:

              http://activistcash.com/organization...united-states/

              When it comes to slaughter, I will repeat, it is one more way we use SOME horses as the natural, renewable resource those are, as every other country in the world that has horses do, because it is the sensible way to use those horses, not wantonly waste them.

              Only in the USA, because of the animal rights extremist drives to ban, that closed the existing plants in 2007, do we send those horses to other countries to be slaughtered.
              I know that slaughter is just as good or not so good as you manage it, just as every other we do in life is.
              It is not at all like dog fighting, as you compare it to, if you just stop to read other than animal rights propaganda telling you so.

              You propose we have euthanizing clinics to kill those horses that now go to slaughter and then what, send them to the landfill?
              You think that makes any sense, when we have others that can use all that those horses are once dead one more time for something else than adding to the trash pile?

              THAT I think is absurd on several counts.
              THAT is why I am against the ban slaughter drive.
              I don't care either way, if we do or not have slaughter plants.
              I do care that we don't ban slaughter just because some extremists are using that for their agendas and because doing so doesn't make sense, slaughter is not dog fighting, is a very regulated supervised process thru which many in this world use SOME of our horses as the natural, renewable resource those can be for us.

                Nevermind that many people have taken the time to research the information they post, which surprisingly is not propoganda, but you automatically think anyone against it relies soley on propaganda to shape their beliefs. Not True.
                I am not saying if we want to have or not slaughter, I want to say we should not ban anything on animal rights extremists agendas, because in the end, their ultimate goal is to ban all we do with animals.

                So what? Let them have their agenda. Again, I ask you, what evidence do you have to show they are making any headway into banning use of animals for anything? Evidence, please.

                Read the already posted links on who those groups are and what they are on record saying they want and yes, it is ending animal uses by humans, "freeing" the poor slaves they think animals are.
                That includes the horses we breed, train and ride and all other we do with them.

                Of course we see what those web pages state. What I wonder is why you continue to believe they will be successful?

                When it comes to slaughter, I will repeat, it is one more way we use SOME horses as the natural, renewable resource those are, as every other country in the world that has horses do, because it is the sensible way to use those horses, not wantonly waste them.

                As was pointed out to you on another thread. Despite what you post, horses are NOT a "renewable resource". To help you out, here is the definition of renewable resource:

                Noun 1. renewable resource - any natural resource (as wood or solar energy) that can be replenished naturally with the passage of time


                Only in the USA, because of the animal rights extremist drives to ban, that closed the existing plants in 2007, do we send those horses to other countries to be slaughtered.

                Horses were routinely sent to other countries to be slaughtered even when we had plants here in the U.S.

                I know that slaughter is just as good or not so good as you manage it, just as every other we do in life is.
                It is not at all like dog fighting, as you compare it to, if you just stop to read other than animal rights propaganda telling you so.

                You propose we have euthanizing clinics to kill those horses that now go to slaughter and then what, send them to the landfill?
                You think that makes any sense, when we have others that can use all that those horses are once dead one more time for something else than adding to the trash pile?

                Oh, right. Because ALL of those horses going to slaughter are old and lame and no one would ever want them.

                THAT I think is absurd on several counts.
                THAT is why I am against the ban slaughter drive.
                Well, if the ban on horse slaughter stays in place, what are you going to do? Help come up with a solution?

                  What ban on horse slaughter?
                  We don't have one, other than in some specific places.
                  There are some horses right now being slaughtered, just not for human consumption, that is where they really can be used fully.
                  Any other is mostly rendering and that wastes so much of what many could be used for once dead.

                  And yes, for your information, horses ARE a natural, renewable resource for humans.
                  Look the definition of such up if you don't believe it.

                  Right now there is one plant I know of already just waiting for inspectors to go on, already have the contracts to sell the meat.
                  They are waiting for the USDA to send them inspectors.
                  Those are held up by, guess what, animal rights extremists lobbying against that.

                  If and when they open, guess what, there will be animal rights extremist and their followers right there, trying to shut it down and loving the free publicity that will bring them.

                    What you keep ignoring is that the EU and many other government agencies have a list of drugs that are not allowed in horsemeat for human consumption, never ever, no how, no way.
                    They include bute and many other drugs commonly used here in the US by owners without Veterinary supervision.

                    The EU has stated that starting in July 2013 they will require passports for all horses slaughtered for human consumption, and those passports had better not have bute and any of those other 'never, ever' banned substances.
                    This is not a case of letting the horse stand on a feedlot for 6 months and they are clean' and the EU will take them... this is a list of commonly used drugs that once the horse gets one dose, just one gm of bute, that horse can NOt be slaughtered for human consumption.

                    These are not drugs that they allow a clearing period for, these are drugs they DO NOT WANT horses destined for slaughter for human consumption to have had, EVER.

                    You can pretend all day long that those feedlots are the answer to your prayers... but the EU was already aware that US horses are not 'clean', and now with the whole horsemeat pretending to be beef that had bute in it fiasco... they will be even more wary, because their customers will demand it.
                    You say they'll test for bute.
                    I sure hope so cause then they will see how these fantastic feedlots you're so proud of have tried to circumvent their requirements.
                    You say Asia will take the drugged up meat.
                    I posted the requirements for Japan and was not shocked when that information was ignored as you all instead continued on with the same old same old.

                    I will take the EU/MLHW/USDA/FSIS/CFIAs word, documented, accessible, verifiable word for what they want and will accept over some guy you [whomever you are] talked to once.

                      I will take the EU/MLHW/USDA/FSIS/CFIAs word, documented, accessible, verifiable word for what they want and will accept over some guy you [whomever you are] talked to once.
                      So what I want to know is, why do COTH'ers have such a morbid fascination with slaughter?

                      BTW, arguing with the Usual Suspects here is like arguing with a large rock; you will exhaust yourself fruitlessly and the rock won't move a bit. Just sayin'!

                        Because these issues matter to all of us that have horses.
                        Our rights to have and use horses depend on informing all we can of what we are against with animal rights agendas biting at the heels of animal use, including all we do with horses, not just slaughter.

                        So what if some of their followers come here to argue.
                        The general public at least will have some more to go by and eventually will realize what is at stake.
                        The more they learn about these important matters to all that have horses, the better we all that want to keep those rights to have them will fare.

                          Angela...IF they enforce the passport system..then fine...it will be dealt with..and Europe will ALSO have to meet that requirement which they are currently NOT doing.

                          The EU is in such disarray that Holland, Germandy, Switzerland, France and several others are considering opting out.

                          The test that hopefully will be ready..will be able to test LIVE animals for traces.

                          Don't read too much into the EU huffing and puffing.

                          Food prices are so very high..and if they eliminate another source of reasonable food that is nutrion based..their populace will not be very happy...and they do tend to have million people marches that bring down governments.

                          READ the European reports again. ANIMAL RIGHTS activist s stated the meat COULD have drugs in it. I think I read where there was ONE test that showed positive and the rest did not...that objection was mislabelling. Read the articles..they state the concern was the meat MIGHT have been exposed...but the meat wasn't even from Canada or Mexico.....

                          Check phillipines, china malaysia, vietnam cambodia and on and on and on. They do NOT ban bute. Period. Since when is Japan the ONLY consumer in Asia...

                          And..as for Japan....having been there numerous times...have you ever heard of Blow Fish?. It is a niche food..delicacy..that if not prepared correctly, the poison from the fish KILLS the diner.

                          It has been illegal for years and years and years. No one enforces it.

                          Now..back to the feedlot. They can kill the horses...test for bute..and NOT ship if they test postiive. No problem They will adapt to the market requirements.

                          What is YOUR solution to slaughter Angela?

                                This is actually becoming more so at the moment. Food issues are becoming more political. Since we have an overabundance of food in most of the world, they are finding ever more ways to cut costs including safety.

                                That was not a basic explanation. That was Bluey's world as she sees it, not as it exists. Cattle, chickens, pigs, etc organizations are there to make sure their members can operate with as few regulations and oversight as possible whether it keeps the food supply safe or not.

                                  Does anyone else see the irony in this statement about bias??? Really Bluey??
                                  Isn't this exactly what you complain about with Anti-slaughter reports. You can't have it both ways. OY

                                  After all that has been presented, all you have to say is that you think the source, in your opinion, is biased.

                                  Too bad you can't deny that all that is true, is it.

                                    There have been so many alternatives listed time after time - remember all the UC studies previously posted?? Of course not - you really don't want to hear an alternative solution - you only have 1.

                                    Ask her...she has no solutions.

                                        The EU may very well have been huffing and puffing back when the deemed the Passports necessary... but now, after the 'beef that was horse' and the 'horse that had bute in it' and the widespread media coverage of that issue... they can't follow through with simple lip service.

                                        Again re: the Asian countries... g'head, convince yourself that they won't care about the drugs. Oviously, I was not suggesting Japan was the only Asian country [see how little you know about me? Don't even know my connection to Asia!],... HOWEVER, the ONLY verifiable, source linked information re:imports and drugs offered was by me, on Japan, cause that was what I could find.
                                        I would LOVE to see your sources for information on the other Asian countries [or heck ANY countries'] policies on substances permitted in imports for human consumption. Please post those for us all to learn more!

                                        And a test for bute will do what? A horse at a feedlot that the plant has fed for however long they are there to clear other drugs and to get their test results back who fail the bute test will go where? Cause after they have fed them for whatever short amount of time they will be willing to discard that horse without any return? Doubtful. This is capitalism after all.

                                        And what about the plethora of OTHER drugs on that 'no-no' list?
                                        Will they test for those? And they will test them to what level/who's standard? The EUs? Japans? NZ? US?

                                        Would I guess that bute was the most used/found drug when tested? Probably.
                                        But the other drugs also matter and I don't think that now that consumers are aware of the drugs being potentially in there... that they going to turn a blind eye and just eat it. I guess we'll see.

She posts time and again that if slaughter in the U.S. is made illegal, the next step will be to take away our rights to having horses and riding, driving, them etc. I keep asking her for proof they have the power to do this, and she's not answering the question, and you, Leo have answered it in a round about way without providing the EVIDENCE I asked for, just like Angela Freda posted.
