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!

    So which is it she owes you money or you haven't spoken to her?


    I would say that LaurieP hasn't talked to her since July which is why she is reduced to having to hound her on her FB page to try and get they money that they are owed.

    • Oh Please, You guys are funny. I am SO not Jill... Just someone who is aware of the animal control ordinances at work in the state of California (From an agency in So Cal). Ive been following the thread but just hadnt taken the time to get a membership here until now, when it looks like things are finally getting hopeful.

      Animal control does not get involved in the laws that cover civil issues, such as not paying bills or registration issues, semen lab sanitation, etc.. And while they may be able to keep the Sheriff's dept informed of other allegations, they only enforce ordinances that pertain to animals and public safety. Im sure they can look at hoarding issues, and the care of the animals. (sanitation, food, water, shelter, vet care)

      No animal control agency wants to get socked with the cost of caring for that many horses during these tough financial times. I would hope they would try and contact former owners to see if they would be interested in horses IF they decided to and were able to legally seize the horses, but I guarentee, and state law pretty much ensures that NOTHING leaves without being sterilized. Any doubts? Let's see what the MHS officer says.

      I hope for the sake of the horses they are seized, and restrictions are placed on Jill from owning future animals. Those poor dead foals/chicks. Everyone keep up the pressure. Hitting people like this in the pocket book is sometimes the only that leads to change.

          • Good point mbm - will do

            And if any other Canadian importers of semen and/or animals from Jill have their original paperwork that came with their shipment, these CFIA and USDA individuals would be very interested in seeing it in order to aid in their investigation

            I can give you their contact info if you would like to send it to them

              JB's pocket book seems to be immune to any kind of pressure: arrest warrants, lawsuits, negative publicity, poor reputation, etc.

              Sadly it seems that she cannot and will not change, until the authorities take her, or her horses.

                • Does anyone know of the whereabouts of the mare bred by jill named Date Night? I think she is a 2007. She was purchased by someone on the east coast as a yearling I believe but a few months ago I saw her listed on Jill's website as a broodmare. My friend was very fond of the mare and if needed could have a home again here. Thanks

                  Comment


                  • Thank you all. I have received some very interesting phone calls/emails.
                    My GOAL here is to enforce the laws regarding the care of her horses, and yes that means proper shelter. This is very crucial out there, esp. The weather has been awful and NONE of the horses have any shelter. All 4 of her stallions are in large open paddocks with no shelter, not even a tree. The mares and foals run in big open fields, no shelter. The weights look good as of now. She has begun to supplement feed and blankets on a select few. Pastures nearly eaten completely down now. I am watching closely. BUT>
                    I cannot for the life of me get her call me back or email me.
                    I do not intend on seizing horses right now. We would prefer she acts responsibly and cares for them properly. She has been put on a legal notice of correction.

                        Geez- the north bay has had what, over 10 inches of rain this last week? Along with blowing storms? I know we got enough rain to flood our barn, enough wind to blow a shed 10 acres away. The horses have been in – and getting a full strip on their bedding daily so that have dry place to be.

                        I am not surprised to hear that the horses are all without any kind of shelter – natural or otherwise. That piece of property she bought (after letting her house foreclose) had no improvements what so ever.

                        Once the grass gets eaten down, get ready for a real mud pit.

                        • Just remember, I called dibs on Redwine first! I don't care if he has his nuts or not and while I can't promise he will be much thinner as all my horses tend to be a bit on the portly side I will look into the possibility of IR and treat it accordingly if necessary!

                          • . If he comes to you, let me know...my stallion Boleem suffered from IR in his older years so I can fill you in on that.

                            Of course, this isn't funny. But I sure hope all these horses wind up in good, caring hands.

                                First of all, THANK YOU for what you are doing. She needs to be held accountable.

                                However, good luck getting a return response. Unless you go knock on her door, she will ignore you. If you are interested in giving her money, either by buying a horse or stud service, you will likely get an immediate response, otherwise forget it. There have been numerous threads on this very forum by people trying to contact her going back several years.

                                • just curious - is it normal for law enforcement to come on a public BB and give info on ongoing cases? I have never seen that before....

                                  as for shelters - remember folks it is california... and so far we have not had any freezing weather - and that area is milder than where i am. many many horses live out here with no shelters.... (not how i would do it - but hey)

                                  i would think the money thing is far more pressing then no shelters? (or maybe that is a requirement in Marin Co?)

                                  • As much as I'd love to see legal action actually be enforced against JB, I do question have the same doubt as mbm. I don't think law enforcement or govt animal welfare agencies are likely to be discussing their case against JB online. I would want to see an official press release. Our local county government had a fit when a city employee made a personal web page sharing photos and information on a popular local park without going through the proper channels.... I think posting about an investigation on a bulletin board would be absolutely against the rules.

                                    Not saying action doesn't need to be taken - I'm just saying that people are not necessarily what they seem.

                                      • Ever watched Animal Planet? There are programs out there where they follow animal control officers. And, most police stations have daily "blotters" that state EVERYTHING! There is no privacy, implied or otherwise. Everything is pretty much a matter of public record. Moral of the story? Behave yourself 'cause it might just get posted somewhere on the internet !

                                          Might as well get it out in the open.
