Dr. Deb I was trying to find your articles online from the breed series in Equus but not having much success. I don't have the digital version of the magazine. I wanted to share some of the articles but I've hit dead ends. I have all the magazines from that series but no online source. Is there one?
I think that even if you had the digital subscription, that it will not allow you to download in a form that can be shared, since this is against international copyright law.
The best thing I can tell you is that you can encourage your friends to also subscribe.
I wonder how many people have thought about how important this is. On what basis did you think I get paid, and other researcher/writers who provide content to EQUUS (or to other top-tier publications such as Western Horseman, The Chronicle of the Horse, The Blood Horse, Eclectic Horseman, American Farriers' Journal -- there are not many of them left). How did you imagine we get paid?
Some "magazines", and I deliberately put that in quotes because they're just pulp between covers, accept "infomercials." People like our unfriends the wannabee clinicians hire ad people to ghost-write flattering articles for them, designed to look like real content, and then they offer these to magazines that do not pay real writers and researchers for UNBIASED content. EQUUS will not run material of this kind in any way that allows it to masquerade as researched content. When you see an ad, or advertising content, in EQUUS it is clearly labeled as such.
This policy costs the magazine money, which is made up for by money taken in through selling subscriptions. If you do not subscribe to your local newspaper, pretty soon all you will have is the car-trader. If you do not subscribe to EQUUS and other top-tier horse magazines, pretty soon there will be no top-tier horse magazines. That means I go away forever, along with other people, including longtime editors, who are qualified to tell the difference between self-interest and the public interest. -- Dr. Deb
I'm very sorry I didn't mean for it to be a problem. I enjoy the Articles very much thank you. The question was simply born out of respect for your incredible research and putting out such accurate history on horses and wanting to share it with someone else and educate them. I thought maybe some of them were published elsewhere to read on the internet. When you get the book out I will encourage others to purchase it. Again I'm very sorry I didn't mean to cause trouble.
You caused no trouble, Obino. I merely was taking the opportunity to mention that "content providers" get paid only through subscriptions, so that if anyone (such as yourself) enjoys and benefits from what they are reading, they might also encourage others to subscribe. -- Dr. Deb
