    Posted by mbm (from the other cross-posted thread):

    Even tho there is the drama of the seized horses i would not rely on that shutting down Ms Burnell.

    therefore i suggest anyone that has been allegedly wronged by Ms Burnell to gather all your paperwork, facts etc and contact Daventry here on COTH - she has said she will help folks find legal help.

    I would hope that folks can band together and work to bring justice.
    This is the main goal ^.

    FFS people! Why do you think you deserve to know about a person's private business dealings? Why would that person come on here and broadcast it when certain participants of this thread seem to exist only for the DRAAAAAMA and others have such thinly veiled agendas, it makes saying anything akin to walking in a mine field. All the little nudge nudge/wink wink postings about the 'truth' and the 'facts' coming out do not make them so.

    Why not let the MHS do it's job and the courts do theirs?
    The bolded is exactly what is creating the drama...who called her the enemy??? Take a good look in the mirror before looking around.

    Cheap stallion fees, baby deals, mare swaps etc

    3Dogs I hate to burst your bubble but have you taken a look around you recently? There are quite a few who do business this way and they aren't all shady.

    I am a bit lost on how you are making connections between those actions and Madoff, because if a breeder - ANY breeder - owns the stock, then they have the right to sell, give away, discount, trade that stock however they please. It's their property. So I am not sure what is illegal or unethical about that? It might be a stupid business practice, one they cannot afford to do and still meet their financial obligations, or it might actually improve their position in the market and give them a better "product".

    Either way, it's pretty standard stuff in the breeding world, be it horse, other livestock, dog or even cats . Breeders trade stock or breedings to build up a base that suits the type of animal they are trying to develop. Nothing new or radical about that. If Ogden Phipps and Claiborne swapped a few mares and foals or breeding seasons because Claiborne had a mare that worked better with Easy Goer and Phipps had a mare that would have suited Pulpit perfectly, would you be all aflutter? Because that sort of trading is how we got Secretariat. It kind of worked out well for the world, don't you think?

    So implying that is like the lure of Bernie Madoff (whose crime was taking other people's money, not wasting his own) is either falsely provocative or just plain not SMRT.

    A case (many cases actually) needs to be made against the illegal activities that JB has conducted and there is no shortage of those, but when you muddy the waters by implying things to suit your own private little agenda against (yet another) third party, you probably damage the efforts of those actually wronged by JB and trying to seek restitution or resolution. Pat yourself on the back, enablers and dogs come in all shapes and sizes apparently...

    Maybe they are not shady, maybe they are not, we do not even know who you are talking about, nor does it matter.

    Do not use your "everyone else is doing it" excuse on us.

    They have not been documented ripping everyone off and causing animals to suffer through negligence and starvation, as has Jill Burnell. Therefore these people that you speak of may conduct their business as they please, without public scrutiny, public anger, and public outrage.

    Congratulations people! You have all done splendid work towards doing Jill B's job for her. She doesn't have to post, obfuscating and confusing the situation until no one remembers that she is the subject and focus of the need to shut down her operation and get her horses in a safe place. You have, with your malice and ego, managed to totally shift this focus towards the usual Sport Horse Forum focus of "I'm right and everyone else is wrong." Or, to put it another way "me, me, me." What a truly wonderful group you are.

    I hope that this thread IS shut down because, at this point, it is doing nothing more that to prove, once again, what a selfish and self-centered group sport horse breeders on this forum seem to be.

    When I want a new horse, I'll be sure to go get one from the track. At least the owners and trainers there are honestly dishonest.

    All the squabbles aside, I do not see this. There have been some amazingly generous offers of help and donations that have been made to help in this situation.

    MY "everyone else is doing it excuse",,,seriously Ren do you really not read much? As long as people want to generalize, drag others into a situation they should not be in or spew lies instead of fact I will take issue with it.

    @DMK well said

    Worthwhile correction on this one point, trubandloki. When the confiscation news first broke, there were many such offers. And you'll notice that most of those people have long since left the discussion. In every barrel of bad apples, a few manage to retain their freshness. The direction that this discussion has turned lately, unfortunately, just illustrates how few those good apples are.

    I'm not in any way referring to the movie. I'm referring to Phipps and Hancock choosing to waive stud fees in order to attract suitable mares in exchange for half the progeny of those mares.

    Can you elaborate on what you though I was referring to? Or did you just assume my knowledge was limited to the fiction of the movie, which had precisely nothing to do with the topic at hand, the legality or ethical nature of waived or discounted stud fees. The reality? A bit more on point.

    Right back atcha...

    I will say that some people posting on this thread are just as nutty as JB is. What is it about breeding horses that brings the nutjobs out of the woodwork?

    BTW, many people on this thread are confusing the word "defense" with the word "fact." Look it up...

    I do wonder, if this thread were pared down to truly relevant posts, how many posts would be left?

    Take it outside, please. This is morphing into a fourth grade spitting contest. Next thing, you'll be pulling each other's braids and accusing your mothers of wearing army boots.

    That is me who liked your post. I took it the way you meant it.

    If Acertain smile doesn't begin to stick to fact, instead of spreading wild and demeaning rumors. this thread will probably be shut down (which should have happened at least 100 pages ago)..

    So.... Keep on going Acertainsmile. Only people like you (and me, who was goaded into a vituperative reply) will get this shut down.
