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

  • In response to a letter under the Freedom of Information (FOIA)
    act, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) indicated
    that during an ‘‘exploratory project” they found two of twenty-four
    horse carcasses tested (8.3%) that were violative for PBZ in 2004–
    2005.

    The USDA also stated that they determined PBZ levels in
    equine fat samples in 2002 and 2003 and none was detected.

    Horse carcasses were not among those animal carcasses tested for PBZ
    during the year of 2006, the year that horses were under Federal
    Inspection by the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), the USDA’s
    Public Health Regulatory Agency.

    This agency works with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and FDA ‘‘to control veterinary drug, pesticide, and environmental contaminant residues in
    meat, poultry, and egg products.

    The FDA has set no safe residue limits of PBZ in animal carcasses. If PBZ is found
    to be present in food animal tissue, it is considered a violation.
    Given that musculoskeletal injuries are frequent in horses and are treated commonly with PBZ to ameliorate the pain associated with these injuries, it is unclear why none of the horse carcasses were tested for PBZ in 2006.

    Moreover, it is unclear why FSIS would analyze fat to determine PBZ levels because the volume of distribution indicates that almost the entire drug stays in the bloodstream.
    In fact, the FSIS directive requires that PBZ levels be determined in
    kidney. Kidney is the organ that exhibits the highest levels of PBZ.

      Whoa, Your comments are so off the topic of what we were discussing, I can't imagine what you are drinking.
      And for that matter, I would be careful about the accusations you are making.
      I would not lump people into a catagory you have no proof of.
      And what proof do you have of your accusations?
      Lets see the documentation on that whopper.

        Bottom line...the anti crowd are in trouble. Chicken Little syndrome...

        They do NOT want slaughter to reopen because in the past 6 years there have vbeen so many changes to equipment, attitudes, staff training, etc that the industry will function with. Of course there are going to be exceptions., Same as McDonalds..when they fired the employee who told the old lady who was complaining about her 3rd rpelacement burger to go to Burger King

        So...prove Bluey wrong. Provide evidence she is NOT accurate...find a verifiable source that states ALL slaughter plants did not check all the horses.
        There is a very simple reason why Jetsmom is quoting 6 plus year old information; because that is when the Dallas Crowne plant was still in operation. You know, the one Bluey was claiming that she "knew" they tested every single horse because someone told her so.

        We do not need to prove Bluey wrong by finding a "verifiable source that states All slaughter plants did not check all the horses" because that is not what Bluey claimed. She just falsely claimed the Dallas Crowne plant.

        Hope that helps!

          • I call BS - we have slaughter because someone in Europe, Asia or wherever wants to eat a horse. It is not about doing anything "nice" for the horse, oh and there's lots of money in it for someone. Not sure why we don't process dogs and cats either because someone somewhere eats them too.

            Then they ATTACK individuals who send their horses to LEGAL AUCTIONS because they MIGHT be purchased by a kill buyer.

            They also post it is CHEAP to euthanize and no one has an excuse NOT to do that.

            Slaughter is only ONE piece of the puzzle.

            Feel free to replace it with a workable solution that can work within 24 hours and solve the issue and save 100,000 horses.


            You can't. If you could..there would be no such thing as slaughter.

            AR activists don't care about solutions. They care about donations and limiting anyone regarding livestock ownership.

            If EVERY industry that had a problem was forced to quit and all of their competitors were also forced to quit..there would not be a COTH...or anything else.

            Why not go to Roswell N.M. and ask all of those who will have jobs how they feel about you taking them away...I know...how about if you give them a hug...get back on your bus and tell them you are sure everything will work out.....won't happen because you don't care.

            You don't care that equine slaughter can be done humanely, transportation laws can be enforced and people can have respectable employment.

              We have already seen it and yes it was a few years ago.

              On the other hand, why don't YOU provide proof that they did test every horse.
              And bluey saying it does not make it so.
              On the contrary.
              NOPE..YOU are the ones calling Bluey and others a LIAR.

              You do the search or we will just stand by the posting that YOU can not prove anything... to substantiate your position

                Why should we, Bluey brought it up, We asked you first.
                And besides your a canadian right? What do you know about the US slaughter houses. I am still waiting to hear your credentials.

                  Since we are not under Napoleonic Law...guilty until proven innocent...I suggest Bluey to NOT defend herself. It is up to YOU, who don't believe her to find proof she is wrong.

                  If she is proven wrong I bet she will quickly acknowledge..unlike so many here

                      Someone doesn't need their horse/horses...they can't afford them...so they sell them...at an auction or to a buyer. NOT all horses sold to KB's end up on the table. There have been many posts stating otherwise. If you have ever sold a horse...YOU also are guilty of making money...whether or not you lost money...you still took some in. YOU are part of the solution. AND problem

                      You want to control who a person can sell to..their reason for selling etc. WOW..

                      THAT is the A R agenda pure and simple

                        Not a cop out at all. It is the SAME one Jets Mom etc use all the time.

                        I have already volunteered to make things better at a slaughter plant. WHAT have you done..other than post...

                        Saved any horses..I have....worked for free to make a difference...I have...If you have..you need to say who what where when and why...

                          But if you call somebody out and accuse them of being untruthful it is you who has to bring the proof.

                          I missed something between going to bed late and waking up this morning...
                          Did I fall on my head or you?

                          Somehow you sounded nicer yesterday and the day before....and you didn't call people liars (btw, name calling unless you prove it)

                            I don't have to prove anything, already said what I know, that is from several credible sources, over several years, one the one taking and running the samples.
                            Anyone is free to believe it or not.
                            Moot question, the plants have been closed many years now.
                            Any new plant opening will have way new protocols, to fit whatever is requested of them today.

                            It is full moon, some just get a bit agitated when we have those.

As we have been saying, the rara's are now diminished to using hysterics (which have clearly been proven unfounded) as proof of their points!

                                    I enjoy the Kumbaya singing and group hugs...they all pat each other on the back and high five...

                                    BUT

                                    they have no solutions...only quotes 10 years old

                                    They REFUSE to volunteer to make a difference because they do not ever spend their own money...that is for "others" to do.

                                    Their solution is..like the environmentalists..keep the "common people" out of the parks and wild areas. Only TRAINED environmentalists should be able to view wild animals..not the unwashed tax payer.

                                    Same with horses. They have no problem with having ONE..but for breeders such as myself they want to tax me out of existence.

                                    The AR come on here and "rile their groupies" and voila..

                                    Ever notice how they sound like those anti carriage horse "girls" from New York...

                                      horse carcasses tested (8.3%) that were violative for PBZ in 2004–
                                      2005.

                                      The USDA also stated that they determined PBZ levels in
                                      equine fat samples in 2002 and 2003 and none was detected.

                                      Horse carcasses were not among those animal carcasses tested for PBZ
                                      during the year of 2006, the year that horses were under Federal
                                      Inspection by the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), the USDA’s
                                      Public Health Regulatory Agency.

                                      This agency works with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and FDA ‘‘to control veterinary drug, pesticide, and environmental contaminant residues in
                                      meat, poultry, and egg products.

                                      The FDA has set no safe residue limits of PBZ in animal carcasses. If PBZ is found
                                      to be present in food animal tissue, it is considered a violation.
                                      Given that musculoskeletal injuries are frequent in horses and are treated commonly with PBZ to ameliorate the pain associated with these injuries, it is unclear why none of the horse carcasses were tested for PBZ in 2006.

                                      Moreover, it is unclear why FSIS would analyze fat to determine PBZ levels because the volume of distribution indicates that almost the entire drug stays in the bloodstream.
                                      In fact, the FSIS directive requires that PBZ levels be determined in
                                      kidney. Kidney is the organ that exhibits the highest levels of PBZ.

                                        Gee--2004?

                                        Of course they are not going to conduct every test known to man kind...for PBZ it would be random.

                                        Gosh..4H kids know that..do you even own animals?
