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!

    Does the former owner know if he was sound?

    I've already notified Christy about this big fella however she didn't get to see much of the sale on Monday as she was coordinating coggins/hc/pickup of ALOT of the broker horses that found homes. We do have contacts though with some of the dealers to inquire. Would be helpful to have a little more specific info on the horses appearance. Thanks!
    I'm working on more details but what you've got so far is all I know. I'm waiting to hear back from the owner but her horsey friend told me he was well over 17 hands. A picture would be fantastic, here's hoping...

      This problem of horses being toted off to NH (or other sales), and horses that have been given away with conditions (a contract/agreement) seems to be on the rise in recent weeks.

      Good article just published today- can be found here:

      http://ottb-rescue-community.socialgo.com/forum/topic/6

      I've a feeling that with the economy tanking people are becoming more and more bold and brazen to violate written contracts/agreeemnts. Horses have been bringing more money and the dealers have been scrambling to get as many horses as they can to ship to slaughter.

      I can't stress enough- the importance of KNOWING who you're giving your horse to, including checking references, speaking to others that know the person WELL. Periodic calls and emails asking for dated pictures to know the horse is still where it's suppose to be.

        Okay, well if he's a true 17 hd. TB he should stand out in a crowd. There is a dealer that buys at NH for resale (but also ship to slaughter if they don't sell). Christy and I both know him. Will make contact to see if this horse sounds familiar.

          He was not at NH Monday unless he sold very early in the riders and was taken out of the sale right away. I was there not long after the sale started and went through all of the horses, looked at the few TBs closely.

          Are you sure he went to New Holland? I will keep an eye out. This man's name I am not familiar with- I know a lot of people there but dont know everyone of course.

            That would actually be somewhat encouraging and perhaps (?) a private home.

              Could this guy have taken the horse to a different sale- Unadilla?
              Or could he have sold the horse privately outside of an auction?

              Marli, why does that mans name ring a bell for me?

                If you are sure he went thru the sale at NH, or another one, and was shipped for KB, likely to Canada.......
                Get on the phone immediately tomorrow morning, to the 4 major slaughter houses, 2 in quebec, one in saskachetewan, and one in Alberta. Also alert the sale barn OLEX in St Jacobs Ontario( sales on tuesday). Frequently NH horses go there, are run thru the ring, and more are purchased, and DD to Quebec, gone the same day!!!
                Tell them he was taken to the sales barn without permission, give them a full description and get a pictre to them ASAP.
                File a police report, it might be civil, but file one anyway.

                  Without knowing if the man that had the horse - consigned and sold the horse through New Holland, yes, the horse could've been sold privately and perhaps never stepped foot at NH.

                  If the former owner had a contract with the man, and that contract has been violated, then the owner needs to report this to the police. In turn the police can inquire at NH to see if in fact, this man sold the horse there.

                  I don't know why this mans name would ring a bell for you- it didn't with me, nor Christy or Bev. Never heard of him.

                    Updated the first post. Playacar has been fielded on his way to TN. I'm not sure how the owner made that happen, assuming she let Jack know the local police would be interested that he had taken possession of a horse? Who knows... just glad Playacar avoided the kill pen.

                      Good job finding him.

                      Is this Jack person known to sell horses to meat / NH on false pretenses? Has he done it before, to anyone's knowledge?

                          The only convictions he has are for neglect and allowing his horses to wander on roads - and he has the court order forbidding him from owning horses again. It sounds like the NH regulars don't recognize his name. Don't know if he does business before the sale regularly but locally he's known as someone who will take a freebie and immediately send it to auction.

                              The law needs to protect the horses if there is a contract. Let's make sure before we sell any horses that there is a binding contract. I would have a very hard time selling one of my horses for this reason. I've helped others sell horses and I stress over it. The price tag of the horses I've helped sell is always over $2,000 but it wouldn't be that hard to see someone practically giving a horse away if they've paid that much. Passing a horse on at a lower and lower price they could easily end up with a kill buyer and be sent to slaughter without the first seller ever expecting this to happen. The dishonesty and trickery is over the top, so any person that misrepresents himself should be shot.

                              Regardless of one's feelings about slaugther, they had a CONTRACT. It isn't like some fluffy bunny person who went by some idealistic notion....they actually tried to ensure a horse's safety. It isn't even like they sold him on as a prospect where he had a better chance for a good home - they sent him to the most likely place to end up getting shipped.
                              Aargh.

                                I think besides the contract require visiting rights, go see where the horse will live and tell them you will come back in a month and a week and if he's not doing well, you will take him back and find another home.

                                http://ottb-rescue-community.socialgo.com/forum/topic/6

                                I've a feeling that with the economy tanking people are becoming more and more bold and brazen to violate written contracts/agreeemnts. Horses have been bringing more money and the dealers have been scrambling to get as many horses as they can to ship to slaughter.

                                I can't stress enough- the importance of KNOWING who you're giving your horse to, including checking references, speaking to others that know the person WELL. Periodic calls and emails asking for dated pictures to know the horse is still where it's suppose to be.

Who knows... just glad Playacar avoided the kill pen.
                                  Sorry to be cynical... but is that what Jack said? Does she have proof?
                                  If it is true, great... but I hope she does not go on just what he said if and when she mentioned a police report...

                                        sort of off topic

                                        But I was listening to the news the other night about the whole AIG issue and giving huge bonuses. People want the government to interject and make AIG give the money back BUT they can't because AIG had a binding contract to give the bonuses and that is protected under the Constitution. Why can't horse contracts be as protected? or do people just not take the drastic steps to inforce them because they're not for millions of dollars?

                                          I think at this stage of the game, I would want to be more safe than sorry.
                                          Does the lady acually have the name and address in Tennesse?, if so a phone call and a road trip would be 2 worthwhile pursuits. Don'r leave it at the phone call!.
