Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services – Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products – While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

          Posted by Devorah Aikman at 8:48am
          Suddenly Kool has been received into our OTTB retirment and retraining program. He has run in 42 races and has retired sound. After being slowly introduced to a paddock and then pasture setting and a few months of rest, he will be retrained into a new discipline. Welcome Suddenly Kool.
          Support the cause. Be counted:
          [/B]


          How can anyone still be giving any horse, stallion, mare, filly, colt, gelding...sick, dying, old, any animal to this shoot, I really can't think of the right word!!........person!!............She really cannot be serious in light of what just happened I mean c'mon really????
          Hopefully someone will start notifying trainers at area tracks/tracks around the country. she is known to get horses from all over the place. i do not know people with horses on the tracks and i dont know any trainers so that will have to be te duties of someone who has "connections"

          Maybe CANTER or LOPE, etc can notify trainers on the tracks of this woman and her "farm names" so we can hopefully gaurantee she doesnt abuse anything else

            My sentiments exactly, I have already alerted my contact at CANTER, CA to in turn alert her national contacts about this person (I can't bring myself to call her a woman!). However, at the moment it doesn't appear she has ever tried to adopt a horse from this program, but who knows with all the alias she has!

            Thank you for the same thoughts :-)

              Hi there no excuses given. Police Chief lied.

              I never made any excuse for anything. I have been honest with everyone about everything. The outgoing police chief lied to the press quoting me although I had never met or spoken to the man. This is none other than a small down witch hunt and you were quick to join up honey. God Bless You, Devorah



              Originally posted by farmgirl88 View Post

              She has three facebook pages:

              Devorah aikman
              Dominion Racing Stable
              dominion TB retirement

              She is pulling the Paragallo excuse that her "help" or "employees" starved the horses. 2 horses, that i know of, are currently being retained by authorities and (according to ABR) are in danger of being sent to a slaughter auction if they decide not to give them back to her. The 9 others with given back to her...for now.

              According to the article she said she had purchased 12 bags of concentrated horse feed and 1 bale of hay for them....a bale of hay for 2 weeks for 11 horses??? really??

              anyways- just wanted to give you all a heads up on this cracker-jack. she is known to FB friend anyone she can, and she frequently shops for OTTB's around the tracks, etc so keep an eye out

              Here are the articles:

                Your statement Jeannie 1 is [bull].

                [edit]

                You do not know what you are talking about. I do not know you. I adopt horses directly from owners and trainers from coast to coast and I certainly don't need your permission to do so. My own trainer who has first hand knowledge of every detail of my operation has continued to place his own horses with me even after the false story and rumors broke loose. Doesn't that say something? He has direct contact with me and my horses regulary and trusts me with his retirees. You are nothing more than a spewing entity on the internet. Give me a break. There is more to this story than you will ever know and after I see the evidence of you own hate campaign, I will not give your lies the dignity of responding to them. We will continue to do what we have been doing for over 30 years now and your permission is not needed to do so. I forgive your ignorance. God bless you. Devorah

                          I don't know her but have been following this story with interest. There is never fire without heat. The pictures of the 2 horses in a Texas newspaper looked pretty poor. I hope someone is monitoring the horses she still has..closely.
                          We have a case here in Maine where a couple STILL deny any wrongdoing in the abuse and neglect of dozens of horses (HE was arrested on Sunday. Charges are pending on her) Most of the horses were seized but not before many very thin ones 'disappeared' (rumored to have been shot and buried) when the public got wind and the state finally looked into the situation.

                                Believe me you do not want to know her, the actual pics of the day they were seized are even worse than what was shown in the newspaper, especially the two stallions that were not released. Thank you for following the story!

                                    The latest that has been posted on her Facebook is that she is preparing for the return of the two stallions, however I just found this listed by the Stephenville Empire Tribune, dated today:

                                    "Fate of two horses still unclear in animal cruelty case"

                                    Weeks after 11 horses found malnourished and without water were removed from their owner, the case is still unresolved and the fate of two of the horses remains unclear.

                                    The horses' owner, Dublin resident Devorah Aikman, has been charged with cruelty to animals.

                                    Devorah how can you continue to con all your so called "followers", you are a fake, a liar and a fraud and lets not forget, an animal abuser above all!

                                      and anyone quoting the Lord in every post makes me very suspicious.... do you think you have a better connection and are "forgiven" your sins?
                                      I hope those horses are being monitored closely... and not by the "Lord"!

                                          Ok, this is funny. This was a post on a yahoo group last Sept, on this page Uptown Miami's stud fee is listed as $1,200.

                                          Now, on the Bloodhorse's Stallion Register, Uptown is listed as the joint highest priced TB stallion standing in Texas along with Valid Expectations!!!
                                          Of course Valid Expectations is a proven sire of stakes winners, including multiple graded stakes winners and who's progeny have earned close to $27million in earnings.

                                          Uptown Miami hasn't sired anything in the TB sphere, he has sired a total of 6 TB foals from 4 crops, only one of which has ever raced. You would have to be totally and utterly delusion to think somebody with a TB mare would spend $10k to breed to this horse. You'd be lucky to get a $1k.
                                          A quick look through the AQHA leading money earning QH sires for the last 4 years and he is not listed in the top 200 earning racing QH sires. So unless I'm missing something really obvious it doesn't look like he could ask for anything approaching $10k from QH mares either.
