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!

      Now wait...

      Who owned WE&W? Was it the Jacksons or Dena Lopez or both the Jacksons & Lopez???? Because...ugh, I don't understand. Exhume the body, get to the root of all of this mess, and then let the poor horse rest in piece.

        The Jackson's owned him; Dena Lopez was his trainer.

          I'm sorry, but sounds like the trainer really has overstepped her bounderies.

            Having kept up with the story via BB and news, I do find the whole thing somewhat crazy. It does seem odd that the trainer took the liberties she did.

              okay, i don't get why they are arguing over the petty things like tail switches and sets, ribbons, trophies, etc. Personally, being a saddlebred owner myself I dont think that those are the most important things-the fact that you do own a horse and they are part of your family and you should cherish them and I feel that this shouldn't be turned into what it has been.

              I am deeply saddened by what has happened-I feel for the Jackson's. We had something similar happen at my barn (not the same situation, but nevertheless a horse died -and then a week later another one died also) and so i feel their pain. I hope they catch whoever did this to Wild Eyed and Wicked, Meet Prince Charming, and the others, plus my barns' horses up here.

                exhuming the body after a year????
                Yikes!
                Can they really find any kind of evidence after a whole YEAR????

                sounds kinda gross......

                  What a shame this appears to have degenerated into a tug-of-war compelte with mudslinging. For myself, I am really having a hard time understanding why Dena Lopez is being so difficult about this. A) It isn't her horse and B) I think that if she was really that concerned about finding out the how, who and why she would be a bit more accomodating.

                  And yes, they can find all kinds of amazing things even after a year in the ground. There are damn few drugs, chemicals, whatever that don't leave some type of trace or signature behind. Watch enough Forensic Files or New Detectives like I do and you learn all kinds of cool stuff.

                    The motion's "Statement of Relevant Facts" in support of exhumation includes the following information about Wicked's care and subsequent euthanasia and burial ((Remember that a suit only gives one side of a dispute)

                    Thought that was a very responsible statement. One we should all remember when reading about this case.

                    And, a reminder...the State Police already have in their possession blood and tissue samples from all the horses injured, along with a leg of one of the other euthanized horses.

                      &gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;Wicked was buried in the same grave, back to back, with Meet Prince Charming, "a violation of common practice in the equine industry, especially when burying a World's Grand Champion," states the motion. &lt;&lt;&lt;

                      OK, I am not an expert in the burying of horses, but I am not sure I understand this. Am I the only kid on the block who has never heard this is an unacceptable practice?
                      Personally, if my two older mares were euthanized at the same time, I would likely bury them together-they are lifelong friends, and I think it would be appropriate. Although, my mares aren't world champions either.

                      In any case, lets say I am living under a rock and this is a disrespectful practice in the horse world, I don't believe its illegal or unethical. Why add it to the list of charges?

                      Of course, I am assuming that they were buried both lying on their sides with backs touching?

                      Someone want to clue me in so I can get out of my fog? I'm just confused by the statement.....

                        Ok...

                        So Dena Lopez didn't own him? Then why the court order (injunction, whatever it is) to exhume the body? She's not the horse's owner...she has no say in the matter. Now I could see, if she owned part interest in him, why she could be so difficult, but this really perplexes me. Just exhume the body already.

                        Ok, her not letting them exhume WE&W, is like...if I were buried under mysterious circumstances, and my parents wanted to exhume my body to further investigate my death, but my boss wouldn't allow it. That's just downright silly.

                        Just my $.02

                          Could this be a game of smoke & mirrors to possibly cover something else? Have been watching this whole situation and its a very sad one all around.

                            Methinks you have found the core of the matter. Remember- the tissue samples are allegedly from these horses...if they knew for sure what they had, it might not be so imperative to exhume them. Then again, Sally Jackson should, IMHO, be able to do whatever she wants with that horses remains. Period.

                            ASB trainers are not a bit different than most others- they do assume a proprietary air about a horse that they have sold through their barn a bit.

                            Methinks that, in Dena's case, she doth protesteth overmuch...

                              The court order is necessary because the horse owned by Sally Jackson is buried on property owned by Dena Lopez. The other horse in the grave was owned by Dena.

                                CA ASB...

                                I believe that the point that has been made endlessly across the internet is that if Dena truly wanted to help the situation, no court order would be necessary.

                                Everyone is sympathetic to Dena's feelings about the horse...now onto determining who is responsible. Hopefully !!

                                  The KY State Police are in possession of the evidence. They were there when the samples were collected, tagged and logged into evidence. The State Police cannot hold an item as evidence in a case if there is not a clear chain of possession and recording of what, when, where and how the evidence was obtained.

                                  In other words, they KNOW what they have. Period.

                                    Just so you'll know how horses are normally buried together - there is no "placement" of anything. There is simply a large hole dug and the horses are literally pushed in on top of each other. We have buried broodmares together before - they were long time pasturemates and both were getting too old to withstand a harsh winter as they could not keep their weight. The realities of how horses are buried are not pretty but it is virtually impossible to pick up a 1000+ lb horse and "place" it. If WE&W and Prince Charming are really buried back to back, it meant digging an extremely wide hole and going to extreme measures to place them in that manner.

                                    Just thought you'd like to know . And it isn't illegal to bury horses together.

                                    Don't get confused between my personality & my attitude. My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.

                                      I am very confused. As an former owner of a syndicated horse the trainer and rider involved did not have the final say as to the final plans for our horse whether that be a new owner, retirement or burial for whatever reason.That was spelled out in our legal contract. My trainer consults me frequently about everyting and most of the time she makes the final decisions about the training, care, traveling, shows but I do know what is going on and can say no whenever I want to whatever.
                                      I send several horse to her for months at a time and we are in frequent contact. i know that she has some big time horses that train with her fulltime and she is in constant contact with those owners.
                                      I could not imagine her burying a horse at her farm without the owners permission.in fact of the owners she has Ithink most of them would be present and right on top of everything going on with the vet, investigation and the humane destruction of the horse. And if the owner later wanted to pay the expenses to have the horse exhumed or even moved she would not interfere regardless of her thoughts on the subject.
                                      I think there is something going own with this situation with the trainer that we do not know about.Idon't mean anything illegal.Why can't they do with the horse body as they please?
                                      Ifmy horses had been injured and then died under these circumstance Iwould be doing everything Icould to find the cause and the person responsible. Too bad if the trainer did not want to cooperate with my efforts.
                                      Ishe world of saddlebred owners and trainers different for the rest of the horse world in how they horse careers are managed?makes wonder if every little thing between an owner and trainer now has to be spelled out in a contract.i hope the jackson find the person(s) responsible and can let thier horse rest in peace.As for ownership of ribbons and prizes etc. i pay my trainer to ride my horses at shows and any other prizes including money, ribbons, trophies etc comes to me although I often give some of these things to the trainer.this whole situation sounds like to people both hurting overthe loss of these horses.both trying to hold onto what they can of the horse.Sadly Dena lost a horse of her own and has that horse and everything about it at her place. i am notsure the reason she cannot let the jacksons have the same.

                                        As was the owner of this horse in this case.

                                        Just because someone files a suit/injunction, whatever, does not mean the story is correct. You are all basing your "ideas" and "opinions" on this case on ONE side of this story, the stuff you are reading in magazines and in newspapers, which has been supplied by one side of this case. Both sides have YET to be heard in a court of law. Not all suits/injunctions are based on the truth, just that person's idea of the truth. It's up to the courts to determine who isi right/wrong in this case.

                                        Let's wait and see what the courts decide in this case.
