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!

    • fwiw, it looks like that blast was sent via constantcontact - and online email blast provider.

      you can create blasts to be sent at a future date as well as have them sent right away.....and also the business info, including address is part of the subscription info..... so i am not sure the address points in any direction except maybe that they forgot to update their address when they moved (pretty sure we all have dont that before, i know i have)

        "the Marin Humane Society responded to a complaint about the property, at which time they impounded one of the stallions, Romantic Star, and an older mare, Devils Miss" (actual name per GFF site is Devils Sis)

        The humane society returned to the farm on Jan. 4 and took two additional mares.

        “They were thin and requiring rehabilitative care, so they are on an off-site location under veterinary care,” said Harrington of the second seizure.

        • Poor Romantic Star (and all the others)... I pray Marin County can get all these horses out and hopefully put an end to all this.

          • Poor Romantic Star. I remember him showing with Chad and he was sweet and such a gentleman. I hope they can all get away from Jill and that he pulls through. Who knows how many pregnant mares are there.....

                It has been mentioned several times on this thread by real life lawyers that you don't necessarily have to file in CA.
                Correct. There is a large law firm in New Jersey that is willing to advise and assist anyone in NJ who had problems with her.

                  And on Jill’s site, she has the inutero foal, Devils Sis x Romantic Star for sale. Looks like she would be due in the spring.

                  • This is the California small claims amount, as of January 2012, according to Nolo.com:

                    $10,000 (effective January 1, 2012), except that a plaintiff may not file a claim over $2,500 more than twice a year. Limit for local public entity or for businesses is $5,000. $6,500 is the limit in suits by an individual against a guarantor that charges for its guarantor or surety services

                          I was just looking at that. Mind boggling! Many of them are already sold in utero!

                            I think if you can take anything from this whole thread it is that nothing on her website is to be believed. It's a brilliant piece of fiction.

                            • I think the ones with due dates listed are the ones who are actually in foal. Of course this is the master of deception we are talking about.....

                                I agree as this horse listed below never came to her barn (was mentioned previously in threads by the owner and earlier in this one too I seem to recall).

                                We are expecting a large dark foal with exceptional movement and jump. The foal combines Rio Grande with Redwine for hopefully a spectacular hunter or hunter derby horse.

                                They have now updated the COTH article. Interesting as that mare isn’t on her page at all, or maybe I just can't find it? Which one does she really have, or both? Names are just so similar but are from the same sire. Is it normal to breed a 20 year old mare? According to progeny reports her last foal I see listed was a 2005 TB bred in MD that raced.

                                    • The articles state that there are 30 horses involved yet on the website there are 4 stallions, 11 young horses listed on the sales page, and 34 broodmares which is 49 horses. Hopefully, Jill was able to get her numbers down and has just not updated her website.

                                        It is Devil's Sis. COTH needs to edit their article.

                                        As for breeding a 20 year old...Jill has a few 20+ yr olds in foal on her website. Of just the ones that have 2013 due dates listed: Metsonized is a 1989 model, Radieschen is a 1992, Rain Time 1992, Diamonette 1993. There are others that are that age or close to it as well.
