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!

    i do not think that the public can see the email addresses for users here. only if you have a user ID and are signed in can you get to the info re: email addy's afaik.

      I meant that new people do not always know the email address is publicly available to other members. You have to set it on your profile so it doesn't show up (as mine is). Then when someone adds it to a thread as above, it is public to anyone. So we're on the same page.

      And thanks alter44 for making the change. Just in case that's an issue for that person (and maybe it isn't).

        • I have been following this thread for some time and I thought I remembered equinedriver saying she was from Aiken SC, so I went back and searched.
          I found this post: "
          equinedriver
          Working Hunter


          Join DateJul. 19, 2003LocationAiken SCPosts555



          I moved to Aiken 2 years ago from the mid west. We had not moved in 22 years. The thing I like about it is that VERY FEW of the horse people here are from Aiken, so they are very welcoming. You don't feel like the 5th wheel trying to get into an already established group.

          I went into shock over hay prices, but have found a way to deal with that. The hunter jumper scene is fairly active, but not on a major scale like eventing. Highfields does a nice job with the PSJ shows so as long as you aren't looking for the big time, you should be quite happy with what you would find there.

            • Just doesn't sound like she is Jill. I read where some thought she might be, that's all.

              Comment


              • I certainly hope that the fact that Jill Burnell has left a long string of unpaid vet and feed bills trailing behind her would be alarming enough (and insinuates to me that she cannot afford either) to merit an investigation by humane resources.

I am not afraid to leave my email open to those who care to know who I am. Burnell knows who I am. Thanks to all of you who have assisted. I need more however. Equine Driver cannot be found.

                    • I know that Jill is still up to her same old tricks; I just feel so bad for the people that she has taken advantage of. Just yesterday a trainer was on her Facebook page asking her to pay the $3000 + bill that she owes (owes money to their vet and farrier, too). I don't think she has left many bridges un-burned, but I do know some novice mare owners who are thinking of breeding to her stallions, so I think it is still important to try to get the word out.

                        you might consider starting a new thread asking for info... not many are left watching this thread i dont think.... and your message might be lost. if you start a new thread it will get more attention.

                        • You know, if this thread had not been started, I too would have been duped. Almost was, I guess.

                          I KNEW I recognized the name, but could remember WHY. Took me some time to piece it together.

                          Some time ago I kept getting promo emails from "Gray Fox Farm"...oh, well. Never read them and then deleted. Get things like this from a lot of farms and breeders.

                          Then about a year ago, I got a "be a friend" notice on FB. Since it was a horse person I accepted. I eventually weed through them and delete those not up alley.

                          Suddenly, my FB page was filled with young horses for sale -- a ton of them. They all looked "wet". Weird, I thought. It became so busy with GFF postings, and such a nuisance. I contacted a horse friend who I thought might now of her -- and got a pretty bad story -- so I "defriended".

                          Then lo and behold this thread came up and I put 2+2 together. But what bugged me was I felt I had had some other contact with her...the name kept sticking in my head from some other time.

                          Turns out back when I was offering some free frozen semen test breedings to my stallion Argosy, she was one of the "takers". Sure enough, I found her signed breeding contract in my files. But no documentation that it came to fruition.

                          I had to write Kathy (EquineReproduction.com) since she and Jos store Argosy's frozen semen to bump my memory. No semen sent, thank God -- I suspect because she had to advance the shipping and container fees.

                          I'm so grateful, after reading this, that never happened. I couldn't bear to think I contributed to a foal mill or worse, I contributed any new creature that would wind up in a pile of dead foals.

                          Just an awful thing. And I'm not stupidhead -- been around awhile. It's tragic that she's still up to her stuff for the continuing unsuspecting.

                            Excellent idea. This thread has had a fair amount of influence; the situation needs to be kept out front.

                            • Well, this should be interesting! If Ms. Burnell has 50 + horses with no adequate place to get out of the weather, overcrowded. Marin will end up seizing the horses.

                              If THAT happens, all stallions will be gelded, and ALL horses adopted out on a non-breeding adoption contract.

                                  • GFF is housing 50+ horses ?

                                    Considering the amount of heavy rainfall and wind in their area during the past few days, hopefully, some how, she was able to provide adequate shelter for all of them.

                                    • fwiw, many horses around here live without shelter. i do't keep my horses that way but many do. it is California after all....

                                      as for gelding - i know several rescues that have happened where the stallions were allowed to remain stallions..... and i am not sure how anyone would be able to keep someone from breeding a horse once it was theirs?

                                        It is easily 50+. When I visited spring 2011 it was that if not more. I know she's sold some, but she's also been acquiring more at the same pace.

                                        I read somewhere the North Bay (JB's area) got 8+ inches this week. The horses do not have shelter, and I can't imagine what the place looks like after all this. At the very least, I hope they all have blankets.

                                        Oh look, Jill is back.

                                        There are worse things than cutting the stallions. Better that than they be left to a worse fate which is VERY likely when she finally hits rock bottom and has no money to feed and care for them. Based on what I have heard recently, I don't think she's that far off from there anyhow.

                                          4. I haven't spoken to Jill since July, so not exactly a close relationship. Junior is an equal opportunity handler and other than our longest term customer, who has been with us since day one, no one gets preferential treatment.
                                          So which is it she owes you money or you haven't spoken to her?
