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!

    Lol...for some reason I am always amused when a post begins "I do not have the time to read..."

    I think the status is that nothing has changed. If you have done business with, or are considering doing business with GFF, it would behoove you to go ahead and take the time to read.

    • I am the owner of Rothchild, Jill has cancelled our vet appointment, foal is in our name at USEF. Trying to figure out where to go from here......

          • I don't understand why she'd cancel a vet appointment made by someone else for an animal she doesn't own...

            not much really makes sense, though.

            I totally agree with the suggestion to call the Sheriff...and quite possibly the press.

              If you are paying for the appointment , the foal is in your name HOW can she cancel the appointment? Is she refusing to meet the vet or refusing to allow them on the property?

              Maybe make other arrangements to have a 2nd party meet and handle the foal for the appointment. Circumvent her.

              • Fingers and toes crossed for you. I hope your baby is OK. It seems like the situation is deteriorating further and pray all the horses will get through it. Seems like website and FB have not been updated in ages, so hard to know what is going on. I wonder if JB is still taking bookings, etc.?? So sad about all this.

                • We needed the vet appt to get coggins and health cert for shipping. As soon as I sent a picture of him to the vet to make sure he was shown the correct foal by Jill, She called and made quite a disruption at the vets office that the appointment was cancelled and the vet will no longer go to her farm AT ALL!!! I'm assuming either our foal is not there, dead or in really awful shape.

                  • I'd be booking a flight right now, then hiring someone with a trailer and then calling the local sheriff's office to meet you and the trailer at her farm.

                      Ditto!!! Go get your foal!

                      Also, does someone have the link to Jill's arrest warrant? You might print and show that to the sheriff.

                      • Agree with the others: Get thee to GFF in person asap and take local authorities with you. Pray you get your foal!!!

                        • No vet within 100 miles will go out to her farm, she owes money, and is belligerent to all that she talks to. The vet will not attempt to go on her property. Every story you get from Jill is a different one. She has moved the foals from the original Gray Fox farm to another property which isn't owned by her or her husband. Also this property doesn't have an 'actual' address nor does it have living accommodations. We have done a ton of research and contacted numerous agencies, all of which have a lot of information but are able to assist very little.

                          Comment


                          • I would have to think law enforcement could come up with an actual address for the property, as well as take action. They would also be able to look up the arrest warrant. Time to call them, or you'll never, ever get your colt.

                            • Wasn't there someone still on speaking terms with Jill who helped intercede for someone else earlier this year? It is back in the 110 pages somewhere. It's a lot to ask, but maybe that person could help again?

                              I am so sorry. What a helpless feeling.

                              • It really sounds like you need to go there in person or have someone acting as a legal agent do so. Get the foal off the property to another facility locally and then have the health /paper work done for shipping.

                                And Roisin it was Genevieveg17 from Glen Hill that offered to mediate.

Period. if you have a problem with me posting here requesting information, then maybe you are friends with Burnell or protecting her. That is fine too. Call me, we can discuss the matter. Any confidential information I get for any investigation that concerns other matters such as civil matters are transferred to the proper authorities.
                                    Could owner's trying to pickup their horses from Jill's property contact the poster HoofJustice (if this person is legit)? Hoofjustice may be able to provide information or assistance for owners?

                                    It's just a thought. Contacting law enforcement to reclaim property is usually the way to go.

                                    • "Who among us could support 69 horses that way for very long? Unless we are zillionaires. Clearly, she is not one if she owes a lot of people money and can't pay her feed bills."

                                      Lessons learned--that question is one that should be asled of anyone that posts on this board when the math does not work on how a breeder is feeding so many horses ---the math is a red flag that you need to look at them more closely and not just accept their internet "face" and self promotion.
