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!

  • Allie, I would like to include a breeding to Hennessey (frozen) to the fund raising efforts. Thanks for the great idea and valiant efforts on everyone's part regarding this matter.

        Might I suggest starting with the auction page? You could be supporting the rescue operation, or supporting one of the breeders who have offered their fabulous stallions to assist the mare owners who were left out in the cold by JB? There are some fantastic stallions on the list, and if you were looking at Aloha, there are some that could be similar (but even better) choices available.

        • I'm thinking Jill is attempting to "sell-off" her most famous horses (that she likely doesn't own) so that they can't be taken away. If she sells them off immediately (even if no money exchanges hands); they can't be seized...unless Marin County gets involved IMMEDIATELY and has a court order on her to cease business operations until the investigation is finished

          Comment


          • Tomorrow is the day this really gets going in full swing. I am hoping to hear that all the horses have been seized and their nightmare has come to an end. If Jill ends up behind bars that would be the icing on the cake but I will settle for the horses being taken from her forever. Jingles for the horses, may the humans involved do the right thing.

              I do believe that is why Grande Affair was moved in the first place to "hide" /eyeroll her from the people who were looking prior.

              • well if they get seized, here is hoping they end up at a GOOD facility and not some of the rinkydink, sub par facilities around here that do "rescue" work

                    This link isn't working. It looks like you edited your post, which caused the link to break. Could you post it again? Using the URL tags like this:

                    [ url] http://www.leg-up.org/whatever the rest of the url is] This is the website [ /url ]

                    will help to protect a link and keep it from breaking when you go back and edit. Just take the spaces out.

                    • I just got a message from Karen Severns of New Blessing Farm who has generously offered her stallion Legaczy for mare owners whos breeding contracts, were not fullfilled. She also donated a breeding to the Leg-Up Equestrian Assistance Program Auction. Thank you so much for your generousity!

                          • What is wrong with breeding? And why not promote the stallions owned by honest stallion owners with quality stallions? Those are the one I want to do business with.

                              • A big round of applause to everyone and all of the great things you've done. I would so buy a breeding to donate, but I already did that for another good cause. I hope everyone who's thinking of breeding looks here first.

                                  • I read here that there is a court date tomorrow, January 3. Is Jill supposed to show up, or is it just for the humane society?

                                    • I see two things going on here, and I don't see a way to distinguish. I see the breedings being donated to Leg-Up, of which proceeds go to Marin County. Then I see offerings of stallions like Lotus T and Escapade to MARE OWNERS who have been wronged (had a breeding to GFF not honored).

                                      Is anyone keeping track of them seperately? What are the SO's who are donating to mare owner/victims requiring as proof?

                                        This doesn't surprise me, as I seem to recall earlier this year, or I should say summer 2012, that when the foreclosure became real and this thread started people were going to get their mares and Grand Affair was one of the ones who was "supposed" to be shipped back east to her owners by agreement with Jill then she never followed through.....

                                          I know nothing about the original deal, but precise language (and assumed interpretation) are a bugaboo of mine. And, since JB was very careful to imply (without claiming) ownership, nothing in that post said she had bought the mare.

                                          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.

                                          For those of you familiar with the Oldenburg mare Grand Affair, she has been with me for the past 6 months mothering her 2012 filly Dolphina who I own. I had also purchased Grand Affairs 2010 inutero foal Rain Boots who has been with his new owner for the past year. I am pleased to report that I have purchased Grand Affair who will continue to live at my farm in Petaluma. This is an FYI to dispel any rumors of the whereabouts of this wonderful hunter mare.
