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!

          Hessy, don't be surprised at the quality of the horses that are butchered. Beautiful horses go to slaughter every single day. Remember that Exceller was slaughtered, as was Ferdinand. The pro-slaughter side would have you believe that only the old and infirm are sent to slaughter, but that's just another lie. The killers like the young, well-muscled horses, and also like to send pregnant mares through in order to boost the price (per pound).

            The pro slaughter side would have you beleive trhat I'm EBO? No actually thats a lie the anti slaughter side came up with. The pro slaughter side has always said the majority by far are young healthy horses the same as the slaughter of any animal. Why would anyone want meat from sick, scrawny animals?

                  Actually you are incorrect. Jim Tucker from Cavel while being interviewed said that he was providing a service for Americans by taking the sick and old horses and slaughtering them.

                      Who are the anti slaughter people saying "you can give a horse bute with a broken leg and it still can run".
                      I don't think it is possible to give a horse enough bute to make a horse not feel a broken leg.

                        LOL... a new member here, cloudyandcallie, has been posting that she took her dog's bute and understands why horses can run "on broken legs" if they've been given it.

                          Theres a number of anti slaughter people that make statements that are obviously false. My question is if a pro slaughter person does and that means all pro slaughter people think that way does it work then that any anti slaughter person that makes a crazy statement put all of that side in the same group? One way street or two?

                            I've never been under the impression that only the sick and lame went. All kinds go there. You just have to go to any auction to know that. I prefer to think of them as unwanted; that seems to be a bit more accurate.

                            Glad this horse was saved - he seems like a nice horse.

                            I don't think a pedigree should matter that much - not when deciding which horse to "save". One of my horses came through New Holland - and though he has no papers you could not ask for a more wonderful horse. Not a TB though - there's no greater equine athlete than a TB. The ultimate sporthorse.

                              Horse slaughter is no differant then the slaughter of any other species of livestock. Never has been.

                                What you people are seeming to forget (which doesn't surprise me), is that there are, in fact, TWO separate "killer" markets for livestock - and horses:

                                1. Those marketed for HUMAN food.

                                2. The *DDD&D animals for pet food, glue, etc.


                                The "4 Ds" can indeed be old, scrawny, sick, infirm.


                                * Diseased, down, Dead, & Dying - which, btw, is what is used for racing Greyhound food. Or so I read.

                                  It has been against the law to use horse meat from live horses in pet foods since the 70's.

                                    I'm pretty sure they kill the horses first.

                                      Obviously you know very little about the slaughter industry. When a referance is made to a " live " animal it means one thats slaughtered. When a referance is made to a " dead " animal it means one that has died and cannot be used for meat regardless of use. What can be used from dead animals is at rendering plants there many products are made from them. One of those products is " meat by-products for pet foods. Meat that has not yet spoiled is cut out and frozen in 50 lb blocks and then sold to pet food companies for varous uses.

                                        I think it's pretty much guaranteed that Jim Tucker is pro-slaughter, yes?

                                        And, according to some reports I've read, one of the TX plants is still slaughtering the DDDD. Correct or not? Although the anti-horse slaughter movement is to stop the practice and export of horses for slaughter for human consumption, the killer buyers are pretty much prohibiting the slaughter of DDDDs by not buying them. So much for the "altruistic" motives touted by asshat Tucker and his ilk.
