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 just wanted to thank Alicia of Barrington Hill who has not only offered up her Hanoverian stallion Escapade to any mare owners who have not had their contracts fullfilled for breeding, inutero or purchase but she has also donated a breeding to both Escapade and his Hanoverian/Welsh cross son Encredible to help raise money for the Marin county Humane Society.

        • I would also donate a breeding to each of my stallions, Lotus T (app.: AHHA, BWP, RPSI) and Logan T (RPSI) to any mare owners left out in the cold. It's a worthy cause!

Any papers bearing the name of Grand Affair by Grande Saber are NOT legitimate papers from her breeder or the stallion owner...which by the way is - TWF -formerly Tellwynd in Lancaster, PA and I am also owner and breeder of the stallion Grande Saber.

            I saw that ..thanks I posted the same in my post #2488. Had to edit down the content to quiet the snarkypotstirringrumormillcyperstalker. Yes you indeed were correct...

            Oh and by the way....Grand Affair after a ligament bleed was bred back ONLY after she had a clean bill of health, a year off and under the supervision of a professional repro vet. Her owner decided she was never to carry a foal after that pregnancy. ET was the only option AFTER that pregnancy.
            JB not playing by the rules and evidently against the wishes of the owner... bred her back and back and back...

            Advertising Grand Affair FOR SALE at 18 yrs with two breedings was the worst case scenario for this mare..And the last straw for me.

                • Wow! Those are some incredible stallions. What amazingly generous owner/breeders!

                  Comment


                  • You all know what is making me queasy:

                    All the while this is going on, she's still marketing breedings, horses that she doesn't own, and foals. Nothing is stopping her unless and until some court says "Cease and desist." IMO, that's why it's important for those who have been injured to get together if possible, jointly hire a California attorney to pursue both civil AND criminal actions against her. An attorney can put pressure on the DAs that an out of state private individual can't. And the more clients s/he can name, the more likely someone would listen.

                    Also one would think that she does business across state lines, so while unlikely, if the number of injured is truly large and criminal activity is involved, the feds might be interested. A lawyer could at least start that process. I wonder if there isn't some agency of the USDA that might be interested. Weren't they and the Canadians doing something?

                    Edited to add that all of the stallion owners who are offering help for those who have been taken are WONDERFUL!

                      Any chance some of the money collected could be put into a fund to help get an lawyer for those wronged by her to stop her? Maybe more people would come forward if they felt they had financial legal help.

                      I am so impressed and amazed by all the stallion owners and others who are donating their time and/or other items! Blessings to ALL of you! I am a small breeder with big dreams and an even smaller budget. It's heart-warming and healing to see such acts of kindness as these.

                      Thankfully I never did any business with her. I considered her boys a couple years ago but something about her email replies to me just didn't sit right. Glad I listened to my gut. Shortly there after I started hearing about her dealings. Some how I am still on her email list and got the recent newsletter. I was quite surprised to see it and even more astonished to read the further development of this thread. I hope this can get stopped some how.

                      • Marjean McIntyre was the USDA individual that was contacted awhile back. She would be in CA, I believe in the USDA office closest to where Jill resided

                        Has anyone been in contact with her recently to see if the USDA is investigating any part of this?

                          • Wow, I am impressed what happens here.

                            I have held the "real" Chronicle in my hands for a few times, wondering about these kind of adds thanking trainers etc. and promoting whoevers showresults. (something we do not have in any magazine over here at all).

                            Wouldn't it be possible to buy from the donations an add in a broadly read magazine like COTH where all the stallion owners donating breedings for wronged mare owners are listed ? This would surve two aspects: help the people that have breeding contracts and get attention out that doing business with Gray Foxx Farm / Jill Burnell requires some additional research (to put it mildly).
                            Off course one or the other lawer could and should check the wording, so that the wording does not lead to any complaints etc. from her (I understand that there are some lawyers posting here that might do this).

                            • ^ ^ ^ Great ideas! Many ways to get the word out for free or cheaply: legal "takeover" "takedown" of JB's "official" website that is hosted by Yahoo.com - and putting up the PSA from the SOs on that website.

                              Many of the Equine publications / websites may give a reduced rate or free space to post the wonderful SO offer - the Leg Up organization is a non-profit. Publishers often give steep discounts to non-profits.

                                  • Hey All
                                    I don't think I have a claim in this mess but my dad is a lawyer in Sonoma County and I can get a few names of lawyers for you all. He lives in Marin and I grew up there so i know the area well.

                                    I also bought a horse from Jill, he also got sick shortly after I got him. I am not sure if its worth filing a claim to recop some of the vet bills with him, they where about $3000.00, but I have lost a whole year of showing because of them. I love my gelding to pieces. I also have a mare that I wanted to breed to Aloha but I am waiting to see what other stallions are out there. WE don't have a ton of money so the $3K was a big amount of money for us.
