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!

    http://www.legup-auction.org/cgi-bin...gory=stallions
    The length of time you will have to use the breeding will vary depending on the stallion owner. Where we had the information, we attempted to put it up. But, if you are unsure, contact the farm that has the stallion for clarification. That way I won't overstep my knowledge .

    The auction deadlines are intentionally staggered. No two auction items close at the same time. They are staggered to close 15 mintues apart and to close before midnight EST. That way you don't have to sit up until the wee hours of the morning to bid. Secondly, you cannot attempt to hover your finger over the bid button until the last possible second. ALL of the auctions, when you bid at the end, the time will be extended by 5 more minutes .

    Kudos to all the SOs and others who are making this happen.
    Definitely. I cannot thank those that have donated enough. Even if you don't necessarily get an email from someone. We are just flappin' around here like chickens with no heads trying to get everything up and running!

    Donating was simple! Kudos to web designer for making the cash donation process a breeze.
    YAY!!! That one I managed to make possible! <breaking arm to pat myself on the back> !

      I have a serious question though... Are we 100% certain the rest of the horses are going to be (or have been) seized?
      We don't know for certain. I'm not willing to speculate, especially as we will know in the next day or two.

      What happens if they aren't? To the auction money I mean?
      You mean it can't just go to me??? Sheesh!

      But, the intent at the moment should that occur, will be to attempt to work with law enforcement, attorneys, etc., in trying to get legal action moving against the "appropriate individuals". In other words, to have a united location that the injured parties can go to in order to move things along. I think so far the biggest stumbling block is the cost for an individual to pursue much of this. But, if there is one attorney and a pooling of resources, as it were, hopefully a resolution can be achieved!

      It is entirely possible that may happen, no matter how much we don't want it to, you know? And what if they don't seize all of them? I'm not at all questioning the helping, just asking if there is a backup plan in place in the event things don't go as we'd like...
      See above. Our goal is raising money to help defer the SPCA's legal expenses in the matter or to help with legal expenses of others who have been harmed by her. We can't speculate beyond that.

        • I just want to make sure than any money donated for the horses while under the care of Marin County will NOT, in any way, reduce the amount she would have to pay to get them back. It is great that things are already in place, but we should know more.

            This was posted on another board. If it is 100% accurate, it should hopefully help explain a few things;

            "...post-seizure hearing with a court appointed official. (See CA Penal Code 597.1) The purpose being to judge the lawfulness of Marin Humane Society's seizure. Jill gets to say whether or not the horses are hers, and then the hearing officer determines if the seizure was done lawfully by MHS. (It's all part of ensuring due process) If it is judged a lawful seizure, then the case proceeds, and the owner is responsible for ALL care of the horses while in Marin's custody, unless she agrees to surrender them. If the hearing officer finds the seizure UNLAWFUL Jill gets the horses back, with no monetary charges. Marin is a good agency, and Ive never heard of them loosing a post seizure hearing."

            • I do wish ratemyhorsepro would make it a bit more clear that the breeders are NOT supporting JB and GFF, but supporting the seized animals and the folks who have been her victims..
              The article at the site made sense to me, however I have been following this thread for a long time. Someone who's first knowledge of this mess comes from reading the RMHP "news" paragraph could easily misunderstand.

                It won't. The donated money will be Marin's money. Not Jill's money. Jill will be responsible for reimbursing Marin.

                  I thought the same thing it was not very clear that the auction etc was NOT to benefit Jill and help with her financial burden.

                  • Finally, some news!

                    Just letting you know that a special page has now been created on the Marin Humane Society website for anyone wanting to donate directly.

                            Here's the first of more to come, I'm sure. It's from the Marin Independent Journal. It's pretty much the same as the MHS page, but I'm not complaining. At least it's making the news now.

                              Marin Humane Society seizes horses in West Marin abuse investigation

                              By Gary Klien

                              Two horses were seized and others are being monitored in an animal cruelty investigation in West Marin, the Marin Humane Society said Friday.

                              Officers took the horses last week from a property in the Chileno Valley area, the animal shelter said. The organization found "serious neglect, injuries, unsafe and inhumane living conditions" for the horses, the organization said.

                              Authorities seized an injured stallion and a malnourished mare for care off the property, and they are monitoring the health of two dozen other foals, pregnant mares and stallions, including Hanoverians and thoroughbreds, the shelter said.

                              The Marin Humane Society did not release additional details about the site or the proprietors while the investigation continues. No suspects have been arrested.

                                  If the time is being extended by 5 minutes at the end does that mean 5 minutes from the scheduled time to close based on a bid within x minutes of the closing time or does it mean it gets extended 5 minutes till bids stop or something else altogether?

                                      It ONLY extends the time when it's within a few minutes of closing. It prevents people from putting in a final bid with the idea that no one can outbid them at the last moment (sniping). So, waiting until the last moment to bid with that idea in mind, won't work on this auction . Make sense? Clear as mud?

                                        • Farm is off Hannan Ranch Lane Petaluma, CA. That road isn't very long. Looked at Google maps. I wonder if those dry lots with lots of horses on them, and single horses in little pens (?stallions) are Jill's.
