    Just think, it may have been Parelli who bought it.

    That might have been worth it just for the great Gallipoli-like charge of the Drama Llamas it would have provoked...

    Having lived in Wellington for two years, it's not too big of a jump for me to feel pessimistic about it. Fool me once and all that.

    I'll wait and see though.

    We will now begin systematically banning those who make negative comments on this thread.



    Feel free to discuss, but we'd suggest holding off on gathering the pitchforks and lighting the torches until we all actually see how things shape up.

    I can testify that nobody is standing behind me with a cattle prod as I mod as yet...

    Thanks for your passion and interest for the magazine and site!

    Is that a "negative comment"?

    That was great! I literally laughed out loud.

    Ybiaw, I think that's how it goes.

    And to the rest, would you prefer that the magazine (and the BB) fold and go under? At least somebody was willing to buy the business and keep the doors open, and it was somebody with an actual interest in horse sports.

    I doubt Reader's Digest or Us Weekly was lining up to buy the magazine, and if they did, what changes would they make?

    Well I know with Readers Digest it would have been a really teeny-tiny magazine. But it would have had some funny cartoons!

    Based on a lot of what I read on the off topic days many of you folks would be happier if Fox News bought them (shudder).

    Yes, but then you couldn't use the pages for poultice paper after you finished reading the magazine. Unless you only needed to poultice 1/3 of the leg.

    Bwahahaha! You had me for a nanosecond there.

    I think the whole thing is quite funny for some reason. Horse world meets real world. One day it might turn into a movie. Elsewhere, life goes on.

    Well that's why www.themuckbucket.com was created - people were fed up with EMG, so many of us have moved to a new home. The Muck Bucket isn't associated with any businesses, so there's no censorship.

    Hopefully COTH doesn't go the same way as EMG.

    I appreciate all of the feedback/commentary and understand the importance of both the magazine and this forum to the equestrian community. I would love to convey the following in reference to some themes in the posts;

    I believe in Freedom of Speech. As long as the guidelines of the Forums are respected, there will not be any censorship. I will never remove or ask anyone to remove any content or commentary critical of me personally or of any initiatives of WEF, WEP, PBIEC, or any other entity or event in which I am involved.

    I believe in the editorial integrity of the Chronicle. It is a critical component of its value and will stay intact. I will not review (nor would I ever expect a member of this editorial team to ask me to review) any coverage of any articles in which any of my entities are involved. The most important element of this purchase was the team at the Chronicle, who I believe are the best in the industry. Anyone who is familiar with Beth Rasin and her editorial team should know that they will not compromise their standards or tolerate anything less than full editorial control of their stories. The best way to lose great people is to not respect their professional standards. I have committed to them that they will have “free rein” in coverage of any and all stories. I am confident that they will report honestly and fairly all activities and events. I expect nothing less.

    I am committed to the print publication and we will be investing in expanding circulation.

    I am hopeful that you will give us the opportunity to earn your respect and confidence. Actions speak louder than words. I am confident we will deliver.
    Thank you for past support and future consideration.

    Mark Bellissimo
