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!

    very interesting, that horse has been on burnells property until last week.

      Interesting indeed because the picture I posted a few pages back shows the mare with her filly clearly NOT at Jill's and much better cared for. The picture was taken in November. Perhaps she went back to GFF after they weaned to foal for a short time?

      Comment


      • What is more frightening to me is the photos I posted OF the mare and the foal Rain Boots were also shared on his owners page. So she willingly bought and even worse shared photos of he and the mare in that condition.

        Yet still continued to defend Jill.

        • Go back to post #2378 re: Grand Affair. Something smells wrong between that post and what the person on FB is saying about owning her, and the holiday news letter offering her for sale.

          • Wait. The mare is stolen? They just told you where she was, why not take the sheriff and go pick her up? Poor mare, I hope she is in good hands now regardless.

            • I'm confused because on this thread, she was clearly sold to GFF.

              http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/sh...e-Grand-Affair

              She was/is a lovely mare who we watched show many times. Just superb.I wish nothing but the best for her. She is indeed, quite lovely, as are her sisters (and her offspring, etc etc).

              • The plot thickens....

                Comment


                • First of all - I think trying to sell a broodmare that is not breeding sound is unethical on many levels, however horses are sold without papers all the time.

                  I have papers sitting in my safety deposit box that I chose to retain for personal reasons, but the horse was sold without them. I do not claim to own the horse. I received a check and signed a bill of sale. Possession of a registration certificate doesn't prove anything.

                  For the mare's sake however, I hope she is allowed her well earned retirement.

                  • In this world one has to actually pay for things(property, animals, etc.) to own them outright. The mare 100% had a broad ligament bleed. A sizeable one. I can't comment any further because of on going legal action. However, this is a warning. Whomever claims to own this mare, better be able to produce her original papers for the police. I know only ONE person who can do that.

                    • Papers don't mean squat. You have to do a lot better than that to prove ownership. I probably have twenty sets of registration papers in my office for horses I do not own anymore.

                      • So we have three parties claiming ownership of Grand Affair:

                        GFF (annouced purchase of mare in 2009 on COTH, offered for sale 2012)
                        Kirsten Strain (announced purchase yesterday on Facebook)
                        Jill Johnson (post 2378)

                        Anyone else ?

                        Comment


                        • If you think the papers are all that will be used to prove ownership, your sadly mistaken.

                            Actually, if you read the thread linked to, there is no mention of a purchase, just "lucky to have" and "became available."

                            It very well could be that the mare was only leased.

                            • I 100% hope that this Grande mare finds her way to her rightful hope and is given the treatment and care she deserves before further harm befalls her.

                              Perhaps she was sent with the caveat that she was to do ET's and not carry her own and JB has gone against that stipulation. I for one do not understand risking such a lovely mare when ET's could be an option for her and it would allow her to produce foals safely.

                              Breeding her would be like playing roulette each and every time.

                              • The one and only time I leased a horse the leaser sold him to buy crack. I still have the papers as well as the judgement against her. If I knew where he was I would be headed there with a trailer as we speak.

                                • Read the first sentence of post #2472, it sounds like there's a back story.

                                  But this makes me wonder if for the well-being of the 18-y.o. mare that (according to some statements on this thread) is no longer sound for breeding if HuntersPeak is willing or wants to have the mare back to allow her to retire as she deserves why the 'new owner' in Petaluma wouldn't just give her back? What's in it for that FOJ in Petaluma to keep an older, unsound mare if a good home with a history with the horse is available elsewhere?

                                  If we cut out 124 pages of back and forth and focus on the well-being of this particular horse doesn't it seem like this FOJ in Petaluma could just make this one case a simple solution? (Assuming HuntersPeak wants the mare).

                                  • If Grand Affair had a BROAD LIGAMENT RUPTURE at age 12 why was she sold/leased to anyone as a broodmare at age 14/15? She did get loaded on a van by someone in Pa. and sent to Calif. for that purpose. In fact everyone involved was elated at that time and never a mention of the danger to her health........just saying......check the postings on

                                    Ok now lets get back to the reason for this forum, to get all these horses a safe place to fall.

                                    • This whole thing is just ridiculous. If the horse was "stolen" and you have proof, then go get the horse.

                                      Why would you let her be in the wrong hands? you know where she is so pick her up!

                                      The second I found out my leased broodmare was not being taken care of to my standards, I had her picked up.

                                      Stop threatening people on here and go pick up the horse.

                                      Jeese people, it's not rocket science.

                                      • Hope for 2013: Several horses (not all) have been seized from JB and an investigation has been opened, contact:

                                        Michelle Rogers, Marin Humane Society Investigator who has been posting on here. Her number is (415) 506-6236 and email is mrogers@marinhumanesociety.org

                                        To help the horses seized Marin Humane Society is in the process of setting up a donation page for the Burnell horses. Until that time, donations can be made directly to the Marin Humane Society www.marinhumanesociety.org

                                        The Marin County (California) Humane Society is asking anyone who OWNS or has GIFTED a mare or any other horse that is in Jill's possession to come forward. Information on any horses moved off the property (i.e. hidden) is also needed. Professionals (farriers, vets, haulers) with information about horses in JB's care can provide information helpful in ID-ing and locating missing/transferred horses. Customers who have purchased an injured, sick or thin animal from Jill please contact Marin Humane Society. The investigation seeks to present the information to a judge as evidence related to civil matters regarding the horses.

                                        This info has also been posted on JB's Gray Fox Farm facebook page by several posters. Thank you Marin Humane Society!

                                        • I gave a substantial donation to Marin County (California) Humane Society and asked that it go towards the care of horses being seized from GFF.
