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!

    She did! What an addition!!!

        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.
        Guess I'm still confused then as to who JWB is saying she received check and bill of sale then? but guess the court will figure all that out.

        Auction is looking FANTASTIC!!!!

        • Drop it, horsenut. JWB is obviously not JB/Jill Burnell and is referencing an entirely different horse other than Grand Affair. Both TWF and Hunter's Peak have explained the situation in detail and owe you no further explanation. Legal action is obviously being taken, and I very much hope that Grand Affair is back in her owner's hands soon.

          Grand Affair is one of MANY mares ensnared in this mess. Let's keep the focus on the herd and getting all of the horses out of this situation. And thank you, Daventry, for your tireless work in keeping us updated and to Jos and Kathy for your sleepless nights on behalf of the horses

              yes maam Nirina. Obviously many others were/are confused. would have dropped it after my first post as I said, if Hunter Peak and TWH hadn't kept responding. I never thought Jill Burnell was the JWB in question. If JWB was referring to another mare that would have been simple enough to clarify, but no party directly involved did.

              So yes lets keep focus and keep hoping all horses land safely

                ise, yes, thank you,we do have a beautiful farm. We are surrounded by wonderful friends that have helped to make it happen. We are not in Europe, People are questioning the law in the US not Europe. Our mare Lestera, who was an International competitor came with passport but her papers had been lost in the shuffle of owners. I had to track them down to reactivate her status with KWPN to breed her. I owned the mare with a bill of sale but I needed to get the original papers to get her back in the KWPN books. So as I said ownership in the US is determined by Bill of Sale not original papers. Quote from KWPN secretary,"Ownership is determined by Bill of Sale but you must have original regristration papers and the Bill of Sale to get her updated and reapproved in our books".
                Unfortunately your comment about the Bill of Sale being the proof is somewhat flawed and misleading. Unless the Bill of Sale has the following language or references an Agreement of Sale with this stiupulation:
                "SELLER warrants that the HORSE is free and clear of all liens and encumbrances and/or rights and claims of any third parties, and SELLER does hereby covenant to BUYER that SELLER is the lawful Owner of the said HORSE, and that SELLER has good right to sell the same as aforesaid and will warrant and defend the title thereto unto BUYER, and BUYER’S successors and assigns, against the claims and demands of any persons claiming by, through and under SELLER."

                What the individual registries might except is not what courts of law in the US will accept. And if the Seller DOES NOT have clear title to the horse or there are outstanding liens against the horse the BUYER might have to relinquish the horse and receive no money in return.

                I've bred over 65 horses and owned well over 75. We won't buy any horse or pony without the original papers. If they are missing we expect the contract to have the stipulation referenced above. And we expect the seller to do the work and spend the money to get the papers. Not having the ownership warranted by the seller is suspect. Would a person buy a car with a Bill of Sale and no "Title"?

                • Wow, what eye candy. I'd love to bid on one of those stallions, but uh... I have a Paso Fino mare. LOL
                  I'll just make a donation.
                  You are what you dare.

                  • I don't know if there are any JB victims in Texas, but if there are and they have been hesitating about taking legal action because of the expense, contact me. I am an equine lawyer in Houston with over 25 years of litigation experience. I'll assist you in drafting and getting cases filed with the appropriate court without charge for my time. I'll also help you prepare for the trial of these cases (although I'm just about certain that most/all of them will result in default judgments against JB). I'm only licensed in Texas, now, so can't help in other states. You can contact me directly at rpennington@equinelawyer.net

                      Just to squash any rumors, it has been confirmed that Romantic Star has NOT been put down. At this time, there are no current status updates on any of the stallions.

                        Just for clarification. Jill did not pay Reg for her photos. "I" paid Reg. I did not release the CD with the photos on them to Jill until I had received payment in full, free and clear before forwarding them on to her. I made sure that Reg wasn't left out in the cold (cause it sure was cold that week in Oklahoma) and stuck without being paid. And, I made sure that Jill didn't get something without having paid for it - Yup. I'm a bitch sometimes. But I'm okay with that !

                            Thank you so much for keeping us all updated to the best of your ability.....Happy to hear Romantic Star is OK. It is so refreshing to see the true horse people working so hard for these horses in this horrible situation. WOW what a line up of outstanding stallions in the auction!!!! Thank you to all the SO's involved.

                              Yes, they ARE doing well (thank you)! They can have their great-grandson come over for sleep-overs now, which they enjoy. AND...they can now actually make a sandwich on the kitchen counter.

                                I would like to believe there is some good in everyone, and while I am certainly no friend of Jill's, I sympathize with the mess she has made of all your lives. Just wanted to clarify that she treated me fairly in my dealings with her.
                                That's very good for you, Reg! So what are you donating to the cause of the multitude of victims?!? Be sure to address your donation to auction@leg-up.org. I'm sure you're willing to generously donate since you were one of the lucky ones!

                                    Not to be picky, but it is Marin County. (pronounced Muh-ren) It's been misspelled a couple of times and who knows, it may just be auto-correct being over-zealous....
