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!

Disgusting - Video of a horse shot in the head by a slaughter proponent in New Mexico

  • As someone mentioned, 38 pages about a pony who died 14 months ago!!! For what? Is everyone unaware that almost every video being alluded to were secretly recorded by ra ra's? BUT did you not also realize that the 'abusers' in those clandestine videos were also ra ra's? Peta, hsus, alf, mfa, etc, infiltrated plants with undercover 'workers' and then infiltrated plants with undercover videotapers. I don't believe there has ever been a confirmed case where videos showed any actual employees abusing animals. The ra ra's count on us to be so emotionally enflamed by the mere video that we don't even think about whether it is 'real.' Now, we can clearly see the posters on this very site who are demanding that ra ra's be allowed to enter the plants and handle the taping! They are screaming about the ag-gag laws! They don't even realize that they are exposing themselves as the 'sleeper' ra ra's that they are! Look around. Many thought that little pony just died last week! Did anyone ever determine whether the shooter was actually a member of alf? Look at the peta/aspca folks who drove from kill shelter to kill shelter in vans, collecting dogs/cats from deathrow. When they were finally pulled over for a routine traffic stop, it was revealed that they were strangling the animals in the van and then throwing the bodies in landfills. Wake up people! No more chicken/egg farms in Californian and soon there will be no cattle farms in California. The ra ra's are making headway all over the U.S. and are paying some posters on this board to post their pablum!

        • And now horsemeat in Chicken nuggets in Greece... and not just a trace...

          In an update on its website, published on Friday (22 March), EFET said frozen chicken nuggets made by a Greek company and supplied to a local catering company had tested positive for between 10% and 25% horse DNA. The nuggets were sold in 3kg cardboard boxes and had a best-before date of 7 January 2014.

            Sorry but youi are wrong. HSUS have repeatedly stated they are FOR horse ownership as so many of their employees own and actively ride horses.

            Then they try and bring in laws that are foolish and impossible for any horse owner to live with. I.E. New Hampshire...Water available 24.7..

            To a horse owner..that would mean keep your horse hydrated and if you are going on a long trail ride make sure there is water at some point.

            WRONG...the "lawyer" for them, at her little educational talk said 24/7 means exactly that. Horses must have water available ALL of the time. Guess one would have to take a truck into the back country with a water tank.

            Ingrid always wanted individuals with PETA to have animals so she could do a show and tell..with WE "LOVE PETS..just not when anyone else owns them.

            Individuals such as Angela who will NOT state they are not nor never have been a member or donated to HSUS obviously supports them including their lies regarding the circus...paid the "liar they hired" $147,000 to lie on stand...and up coming suits from another seizure where the lawyers were given evidence (accidently) that instructed the rescue agencies to falsify the pictures. Those rescues have NOT come out and called me a liar because they know --there is proof.

            So HSUS and other groups do lie..they do send posters to threads and forums and their biggest lie...

            We are all Vegans within HSUS H.O. BUT we dont expect others to follow our lead.

              Again..you are missing the point

              It has NOTHING to do with the slaughter in North America

              When the meat is shipped it is not mixed with any other type of meat as the slaughter plants for equines ONLY kill equines and the odd exotic i.e. ostrich

              If someone decides to mix in beef, lamb, pork...that would be at the point of packaging and obviously that is done in Europe

              The mislable that occured in Mexico was not that there was another type of meat in the box. It was the wrong CUT listed. Wrong label but correct product type.

              So..how many died due to consumption of Greek chicken nuggets with horse?

              • Ah, mystery meat. In fact, we used to call bologna "Monkey Meat" when I was growing up. Yeah, you can get that too, in New York, and it may be carrying Ebola. Be careful whom you sit next to on the subway!

                  You know, adulterated products happen because someone is a crook, not because of horse slaughter.

                  Growing up right after WWII, rabbits hanging at the butchers had to have their tails with hair left on, because if not, no one could tell if that is really what that was, or if it had not hopped around, but said meow.
                  Of course, not many would have objected anyway, food was so scarce and rationed, most welcomed anything that didn't eat them first.

                  Still, to want to blame that there are crooks out there, watering down the wine and such, on horse slaughter?

                    No, but it's not exactly high-end human beings involved therewith--as per the fact that this has all been in the mainstream news every day for a month.

                    • The problem is packaging and mislabeling. We have enough other things in our food as it is.
                      We are having problems with our food system in general.
                      This shouldn't be a "let's wing it and see how it goes" kind of thing.
                      Thanks but I prefer knowing what's in my food.
