    Burnell may simply be a user at heart, but I also think she is mentally ill in someway. It's not an excuse, but a possible reason why things went from top-of-the-world to mud pit in a relatively short time frame.

    And there, but for the grace of gods or chance, go most of us. It can't be fun being her :/


    (Yes, yes, I KNOW horses and people have suffered at her hands, I DO feel worse for them. But I can't help feeling sorry for her too. I'm a sap, so sue me... or drag me over the coals like many of you have everyone else you can possibly think of. )

    Isn't this you that posted this thread, looking to train with him?

    If he is indeed at the farm mentioned in the last post on that thread, you may want to go back & read PP's posts about the Hanoverian mare she purchased from said breeder. It will explain a lot.

    Let's keep the focus on JB and her actions.

    If she has a problem With the breeder of her mare or Adamo, that's too bad. It has nothing to do with the case at hand.

    Ah, OK, will try to find it. Even so, there are only so many places around to train that have cross country courses. That is the only one that I know of, other than up in Santa Rosa.

    I suppose a narcissist with no conscience who behaves in antisocial ways could be deemed mentally ill. But I consider that a copout and think people should take responsibility for themselves and their animals. I am curious to know if she ever had job and earned her way to "the top of the world", or if she was always one to live in a trashy mudpit but came into a windfall such as her inlaws' equity line?

    Yes, a former RN (I heard she was fired from her last job) though her license is still active.

    Go to Registered Nurse and enter her last name in the search box.

    Getting all confused here. Why must we not mention equinedrivers name? (just saw someone mention removing her name) And does someone know that Adamo is actually working for Jill? Or is he guilty til innocent?

    I believe horsenut that Equinedrivers name was removed from a post prompting those wronged to get in contact with her. Since she/he appears to have not followed through or perhaps just been a fluffer planted by JB herself there is no point in contacting her.

    It is scary to imagine a nurse keeping her inlaws in such hellish conditions! I hope her patients received better care than her inlaws, seized horses, dead bathtub chickens and the dogs living in a field in crates!

    I am still curious if she mined her inlaws equity line to buy all the expensive stallions and imported horses ? Nurses can't afford that kind of lifestyle, even competent ones. So where did the money come from?

    I removed Eqndrvr as a contact becuse it was brought to my attention that she had offered to organize information related to the fraud aspect of this and she didn't follow through with anything.

    So, contact Marin Humane Society Animal Services at 415.506.6209.

    Last night between 7pm - 7:30pm I tried to get on this forum (or the Chronicle board in general) and could only get to the index page of SHB. I did see however there was an update on the right hand side of the page, under "Most Popular" (posted by the Chronicle) regarding a statement made. I believe it was called "Burnell issues statement" or something like that. It is now gone and I'm thinking that was part of the reason I couldn't get on the site (due to the removal of the statement). Did anyone else see that? Or better yet, get to read it?

    (I even reported the site being down during that time)

    I tried getting on this site at the same time and couldn't even access the webpage; I just got an error message. Hope things are looking up for the Burnell horses soon-

    As an Animal Science graduate who did not persue a vet career; I can honestly say it's a SCARY sight to see "what" actually makes it into vet school. The majority of students who persue vet school (and I say the majority) are extremely book smart but have zero common sense when it comes to working with large animals ex: horses, cattle, sheep, etc. The majority of them have a dog or cat at home but have never touched a large animal.They can barely put a halter on a horse, they are extremely smart. They go to college and study the "science" of animals in a classroom and rarely actually learns the necessary animal skills to work with them.

    I went to school and graduated with an associates and a bachelors in A.S. because I had worked with large animals since I was very young and I wanted to make a career out of it. I have a lot of common sense large animal knowledge that I gathered frommy years and years of working with these animals. I was never good in a classroom or studying and I hated working in lab conditions. I was the type of student who'd much rather be in the barn getting my hands dirty. With that being said; I had no interest in vet school because I never had a 4.0 GPA and I was never going to make it in if I applied. When we were working in the barns, hands-on, with any animals I always found myself assisting the non-experienced pre-vet students with any and all of the activities they had to do. They were simply-put: clueless. I wasn't the only one to notice;it was an ongoing joke with my fellow classmates about the pre-vet students. Extremely book smart but no skills when it actually came to working with the animals they would one day be working on.

    The above story doesn't cover all vet students; there are a handful out there who have the entire package: brains and real-life working with animal skills.

    The fact remains and it's the honest truth: the majority of vet students or recent graduates are in-fact pretty "dumb"; you'd probably be scared for your horse's life if you witnessed their "skills"
