    The pictures of that poor mare actually made me cry. Who or what could actually do that to a living, breathing animal? I will pray tonight for the ones that have not yet found their way out of her care. In the meantime.....bid, bid & donate!

    More like she probably owes all of them money with zero intentions of paying them

    Granted she could have others that aren't on her site. I assume as the case progresses it will be updated. Makes me wonder who the bay horse was that was first pictures on the story.
    It's not Pop Tart. She is at her home in Ohio where she has resided since she was born. I'm still looking for her imaginary 2012 and 2013 foals:-)!

    She deserves to rot for doing this to these animals. That poor mare...it's always a shock to see, even while knowing what body score numbers do look like.

    Personally, I am doubting the vet story given by JB and her so-called "attorney." No vet would let this go.

    I also want to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to the one(s) that turned her in. Well done!! Now to pray justice is served...

    Here's Devil's Sis's foal from last year, if it is actually last year. The little bit of the mare you can see in the picture doesn't look bad, so this decline has been since then.

    Default Here's some news for you--Jill's attorney to file class action lawsuit

    http://www.marinij.com/novato/ci_223...second-bid-get

    "People have to be afraid of the lack of notice, the lack of procedure, that the Marin Humane Society imposes on whomever they've decided to take a dislike to," Weems said Wednesday.

    She said she plans to file a class-action suit on behalf of animal owners who have had their expensive property seized and been forced to pay onerous fines."

    I wonder that as well. I am sure she will come up with some load of crap story...

    that has to be a joke! She is running out of arguments to defend JB, so now she is making it against all seizures.... well good luck with that!
    Now is the time for the wronged purchasers/leasers to start their own class action suit...
    The gall!

    No, not if you were reading for comprehension.

    The funniest (not hah hah funny) thing about this is I could be at best considered the furthest thing from a supporter of JB and her blingy black stallions. They are seriously not my cup of tea* and never have been, and yet even I have to look at some of the stuff posted on this thread and shake my head in bemused wonder. Other posters coughcoughcertainbreederscoughcough are totally ruining my own long anticipated schaudenfreude with their own brand of crazy.

    I do feel a bit sorry for MHS since they are a) doing their job as best as they can and b) no doubt reading this thread as evidenced by today's flurry of updates but are c) completely (blissfully) clueless to the undercurrents of agendas and krazee, posters, their alters and mini-minions. That knowledge can only come from over a decade of watching this board (up front and behind the scenes) through the oldenburg wars and the great forum shutdown (and ensuing hysteria) to today.

    Again. There are 34 mares listed on the website that is still available. WHERE are all the horses? I will continue to ask this question if anyone wants to check the website. Google Grey Fox Farm Jill Burnell! Where are all the horses?

    I cannot fathom a lawyer who is a supposed horsewomen defending JB. I really can't fathom this entire thing.

    My thoughts precisely. I hope they rot in hell together.

    So she foaled July 6th 2012 and is due June 22, 2013? Guess fertility isn't an issue. Poor mare.

    First, there is absolutely nothing to say that the website is accurate... rather the opposite. How many people have said that such and such mare has never left their care and gone to JB. So the number you state is probably not accurate. Articles have mentioned more than 2 dozens horses... 4 seized... The rest are still at the farm under supervision by MHS.
    I don't see where your problem is!

    As far as we have all been able to gather, 1 stallion and 3 mares are in the care of Marin County Humane Society elsewhere. The rest of unknown number of horses are on JB's farm, or if not on that particular piece of propery have been farmed out to a variety of places with her supporters (hopefully a dwindling number of). Hopefully with the judge ruling, now twice, in favour of MCHS, it will open the door for the removal and rehoming of the rest of the horses, whether or not they are in as serious condition.
