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!

Chestnut w blaze and I think four whites. Says owner passed away and office has no papers. Write up says she is out of a tb mare and could be inspected Westphalian and Han.

    If anyone is interested in giving this mare a home, send me an email at Gretchen.aitken@gmail.com

    The sale starts at 3:30 pst

      Horrible situation.
      Do meat buyers want a rack of bones with a foal at side?

      Hope a horse rescue in the Northwest can step in.

      Neighsavers is good and aggressive. They are in California.

        I may be wrong, but I believe it is illegal to transport a mare w/a foal at foot.

        And this is not the kind of horse meat buyers purchase anyway. The foal is of zero value 'cause it's too small, and as you pointed out, they sell by the pound, so the mare would not be of value either.

        The only way a meat guy is going to buy this pair is if they think they can flip 'em using the old "They're going to slaughter if no one buys them" method.

        If the horse has no papers, how does anyone know who she is sired by or what year she was born? You have to say whatever is said at auction with several tablespoons of salt....

            Rereading story it says there have been three premium foals from the cross so maybe that isn't her.

                This thread was crossposted on HGS, and a member's trainer ended up purchasing her, her colt, and two other mares. Thank you for posting this OP, you were able to get this mare into a great home

                  That is so awesome!

                  I was delighted last night to get an e-mail from the person that bought her. What a relief that she went to a HOME, and not for meat. The meat buyer quit bidding at $50. I'm hoping that her owner won't mind keeping me updated. I think she's going to be a beautiful mare once she returns to condition. I am so happy that she was rescued!!

                      In regards to the meat buyer, some - from my understanding - will purchase such, take them home or send them to a feedlot and feed them up, then re-sell (if they took the horse home) or send down the slaughter pipeline. I know of a local horse dealer who does this regularly (takes them back to his place and feeds - not sure how long he keeps them though and so how skinny he would buy), and a local horse and bison feedlot who purchases weaned youngsters, fattens them up over the course of a year, then sends them to slaughter.

                      Glad she went to a good home!!! She looks like she's got some fabulous lines.

                        So glad this one and her foal were saved!!!

                        The local meat dealer does this, but only when he knows the papers say that the horse has not been clear of "meds" for the 6 months required. He will keep the horse for the necessary balance and, if someone comes around who wants the horse, he will sell at a much higher price than he would have bought the horse or even sold it at the auction.

                          A very happy update!

                          I was able to buy this mare from the woman who rescued her three weeks ago. She is SUCH a wonderful girl, and busy being pampered to death.

                          I owe a big eternal thanks to everybody who had a part in rescuing her.

                          This is her!

                                The foal was sold a couple months ago to a very nice family, I understand. I'd love to keep track of him, too!
