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!

There are way too many malicious and false rumors in the horse industry that no one can really rely on paying attention to rumors. It is a shame. We have hurt ourselves by the petty crap--keeps us from heeding true signs. It does my heart good to see so many people banding together as a community in this case. Thank goodness the crap finally hit the fan.
    Yes....I wrote to you a year ago on this forum when I was having trouble with getting my mare from Jill Burnell. I was doing everything I possibly could think of to get my mare home. I realize now I may have been overstepping my bounds to PM you asking for help/advice and I understand you saying too bad and that you didn't want to be involved in any way. I just wish more people would have listened back then so things could have been done sooner. I'm not talking about you specifically so please don't take it that way...This is certainly not your problem. It's just frustrating as I was so desperate a year ago for ANYone to help me with what was going on.

    • I've talked to the registry...as long as I have her DNA'd and inspected as a yearling she won't have any problems getting her papers according to them. And she is definitely Redwines She looks so much like him!! Black with 3 tall socks (instead of 4) and a blaze. She is a beautiful animal if I do say so myself I'm glad you don't think it will affect her future...

        Redwine does sire lovely foals.

        The sins of the stallion owner shall not be visited on the foals. (Bad paraphrasing of the Bible, sorry). I'm glad you got your mare back AND a healthy filly.

          I am sorry I couldn't help you more. I had not been her webmaster for a couple of years at the time you contacted me. I hated to be terse but it was uncomfortable. I knew more than I could really say at that point. I usually try to be helpful when I can. But having been in a professional relationship with her, I felt I had be respectful of that. She never did anything bad to me. I knew there were problems but nothing I could do anything about.

          • Thank you Mara. It was NOT easy in anyway to get my pregnant mare home,but I'm glad it turned out mostly ok (after involving lawyers and police). She is so dishonest though and I'm not sure how she got away with all this for so long. It may have been mentioned in previous pages,but I wasn't able to read through ALL of them. Is Redwine ok as far as we know?

              I would love to get my foal's parentage verified after he or she arrives. Just to be sure...because I would definitely pursue it if what I purchased and contracted for was not what I received. But I assume you can't just ship off tail hairs to UC Davis and say "is my daddy Redwine?". Wouldn't you need some sort of file/reference number for Redwine's DNA?

                Aloha looks like that too, FWIW.
                I see distances. Most times more than one. Sometimes I pick the right one, sometimes I pick the wrong one, and sometimes I close my eyes and let Jesus take the wheel.

                • Interesting comment on this link by someone that was on JB farm two years ago:

                  http://fuglyblog.com/2013/01/07/hors...blood-breeder/

                  OMG !!! i interviewed with this lady about two years ago and spent the day with her working to see if i wanted the job, this lady was nuts! we had to move mares she drugged them all to the point of stupidity even though they were fine, the place was disgusting, her house looked like a hoarders, no food of clean water for the horses anywhere! when i expressed concern for a yearling that had been laying down for over three hours she blew me off, stalls were full of manure and urine, barn was moldy and disgusting full of rat and mice droppings, she had three babies with herpes warts confined with one with no warts that was shipping to a new owner….i could go on and on, even back then i had a discussion with a couple of ladies on facebook as to how to go about getting animal control out to her farm she had over 40 horses on a tiny lot, no food, no shelter, reused a needle on four different horses to drug them with no alcohol or wipes in between…..she is a liar and a fraud ! it is a bout time and i hope justice is served she should never own another horse! when i pressed her for breeding logs so i could organize for her she had no proof and told me she had some idea of when certain mares were going to foal out she told me she did not keep breeding records, no need to. I can not believe someone finally took notice after all this time!

                    From Marin County page. I don't think I had seen this before.

                    • ^^ My mare was definitely drugged when she got home so I sure believe that. Her hooves were also in horrid shape.?.even though I had paid $50 to Jill for a trim that certainly did NOT take place a week before shipping. She charged me for so many things that NEVER happened. Grrr. Rant over.

                      Comment


                      • True...Aloha does look like that too. Either way she is being DNAd. I'll post the results when I get them. I will be indiscribably disappointed if my filly isn't from Redwine though. No offense to Aloha.

                          • and I bet this person, if she had posted on Coth, would have been blown away by JB's then fans... so sad. How many horses suffered since then.

                            RRPiaffe, I think I would still contact Marin AC to add your story to their file. They need as many examples of such stories as they can get! Glad your filly and mare are doing well.

                            • FI- I have all the paperwork,charges,bills,contracts,etc. from the whole thing perfectly recorded. If it can help in anyway how would I go about it and get the info to the people that are doing the seizing?

                              • So glad I got my guy checked out when he got here!!! I had all his shots redone along with his coggins! Though I wouldn't be surprised if he got Bronchitis before he left Nor Cal!

                                  • RRPiaffe. Others would probably know better, but Hoofjustice, Marin County AC posted here asking for any info from owners who had problems with JB. So i would contact them first and ask them if your info is relevant to their case/file. Good luck!

                                      I would think the info from this person would be really great for MHS to have, anyone know the author? she says she discussed it on FB with friends so maybe somone connected there knows?

                                        You're right, I believe this has recently been added, as I hadn't seen it before and just recently looked at the MHS link.
