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!

        • Can you have a shipper, perhaps a local person, take the foal to the vets for the coggins & health cert. Coggins should only take a day or two, then have the foal picked up from the vets?

          Heck, post on U-ship, you can probably find someone willing to deal with Jill & pick up said foal & deliver to he vet for layover.

            However, he was not seized in California. In California, there is a mandatory neuter-spay law for animals being adopted out by a humane society.

            • LuvMyHunter - maybe hire a Private Investigator to find out the location of the foals, if she has moved them. (Or maybe Dawg the Bounty Hunter has a few free hours, lol)

              Is your foal weaned? If not, it has the same coggins status as the mare until it is weaned. Dunno if that helps you or not.

              As others have advised - I would get yourself or someone you trust to act as your agent, out there , hire a hauler to meet you and get your foal. Drive directly to a vet clinic to get a coggins in your name. Maybe even board the foal at the vet clinic until the results are in (or for treatment if the poor lil thing is sick)

              I Agree fully with Jody Jafe who advised calling the local newspapers and the TV news.

              This is a horrible situation, I hope it all turns out well for you! Good Luck!

              • HoofJustice seems to know where the horses are and their condition. Doubt that she would get involved but perhaps she might let you know the location.

                Jill's cronies are probably updating her on your post so I wouldn't be surprised if she moved your colt.

                • I'd bet something happened to the foal and that is why the stories or that she is going to say you owe X amount of dollars for board or whatever before he can leave. Seems like that is the pattern she follows. Sorry you are having such a hard time. I would do as others suggested and get law enforcement, the press and anyone else willing to help involved. Also second contacting Hoof Justice.

                  Jill has accepted friend requests on FB in the last day, so she's got web access, and is most likely reading.

                    Oh well. North America is not suffering from a shortage of quality stallions. It's a shame. They don't need to be gelded, but the loss of their testicles would be a small price to pay to see Jill Burnell's foal-mill shut down.

                    As for the poster who can't get her foal seen by a vet, hire a shipper to haul the foal to a veterinary hospital in the area or to another farm. A few days or a month at another farm is a small price to pay to not have to deal with JB.

                      Yes, this seems to be your best bet right now. HoofJustice is with the Marin Humane Society 415.883.4621 . Tell them you fear something has happened to your foal.

                      • Not sure if they will be of help to you or when their next run that will pass Marin will be scheduled (they run WA to Southern Cal, weekly) but American Horse Transport is the shipper that I used. They were rockstars and were adamant about getting my mare off of Jill's property. I owe so much thanks to them in helping me out of my GFF situation. It may be worth a call to the dispatcher to see if they can help, even though at the time they vowed not to go near Jill's property again. Although, you'd have to have a current address for the foal... I wish you all the best and I'm so sorry that this type of thing continues to happen to honest horse owners.

                        • If the vet clinic wont go out if you pay them upfront, you need to do more and now.
                          I would've been in CA yesterday. I hope every thing works out and your baby is OK.

                              • Regarding Jill's Facebook presence:

                                I may be wrong, but pretty sure you can remove Facebook posts via a computer, but not via a smartphone. Her computer probably crashed months ago and she's too broke to fix/buy a new one and is using her smartphone now.

                                  You wrote on your facebook post "Jill....if you have cancelled this appointment we will need to pursue legal actions as this appointment is in my name + needed to transport the foal."

                                  Sounds like it's time for legal action...hopefully you have something in mind.

                                    I think you are correct, I hadn't thought about that. Still you would think she would go to a library or somewhere else with public computer access and remove the posts if she had half a brain. Not that I don't have my doubts about the brain part.

                                        Well, sadly you will likely hear back from her faster than the person trying to gain possession of their foal. Gotta keep that revenue stream going!

                                          My guess is that she cannot afford cable or DSL at her new location - wouldn't be surprised if she left unpaid utility bills behind, and the cable/phone companies in her new location won't connect her till she clears up the outstanding bills, and coughs up a hefty deposit for new service.
