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!

        Wowzers!

        I remember that whole thing, my Mother had Friesians and Genevieve was well known. I guess I didn't realize she was such a whackjob!

        I also know the folks from the driving world that are in the lawsuit about the property. I will sure ask them about it when I see them next month!

            That story could've been written about my father's second wife. Unfortunately, despite being arrested (her) and managing to alienate his entire family (including me) with crazy lawyer's letters and threats of lawsuits and police investigations... my father is still head over heels in love.

            I think there is a special place in hell for people like this. The ones just psychotic enough to ruin many, many people's lives, but not dangerous enough to warrant much attention from the authorities.

              The really sad part of this story is Genevive did own several approved Friesian stallions (and there are only about 100 of those in the World at any one time), and she did provide a lot of good breeding information to US breeders, helping them find good matches for their mares. AND she helped fund and was the force behind starting up the Friesian Show circuit (IFSHA). It is just weird that someone could do so much good and be so crazy at the same time There are a lot of hurt feelings and people feeling very betrayed in the Friesian world over this whole fiasco. It hasn't been a good thing...

              Kind of makes you wonder what goes on inside such a head - her head AND her husband's head! I think they should be donated to science

              Meanwhile, stand by for the movie version of this story...

                The Friesian stallions she owned did die under mysterious circumstances, especially Bonne 341. Supposedly he "his his head on a tree". Hmmmmmmm......

                Starting IFSHA was likely for exposure and profit.

                      So re-inventing oneself as a French aristocrat is not enough, her husband faked her death????

                      How does one do this and stay in the same country, do you only shop online?? Only go out at night? Avoid standing in the window?

                      As usual, truth is stranger than fiction!

                        I read about her craziness sometime ago, but don't remember where. Maybe Fugly??

                        Very odd to say the least.

                              Fugly covered this one. Sadly she did breed really extremely HIGH QUALITY Friesian Andalusian crosses as well as purebreds. She's a nutter for sure though.

                                  And her husband is a doctor - so isn't that illegal? There HAS to be some legal issues here (besides selling a horse facility to someone who paid extra because it belonged to French aristocrazy). I suspect there is much more to this story then we'll ever know. Think I'll subscribe to the Fresno Bee for a while

                                    I remember reading about that wackadoodle. She is absolutely certifiable, but her husband is the really diabolical one for going along with the gag and especially for helping her fake her death. What a pair.

                                      Not to worry...the blurb that [presumably] she put on Allbreed Pedigree Online assures us it was "quick and painless" for dear Bonne:

                                      Bonne was very special, and will always be missed. We will never see another of his kind in our lives, but can only be comforted in knowing that his death was quick and painless. We love you and miss you, Bonne.

                                        that made me laugh, Tamara.

                                        I know someone who was a 'Furrow Queen' - I think she is still trying to live that down.
