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!

    • The latest from MHS

      Hopefully this link will work:
      http://www.marinij.com/novato/ci_223...ere?source=rss

      When I was out there a couple of months ago the only 'buildings' on the property was the trailer and a cargo container. There were 4 bales of hay stacked on the ground outside the trailer and a couple in the back of the truck. Now with the rains we have had I can't believe that the truck can make it up the paths to feed up the hill as it was laid down grass before and must be mucky ruts now.

      As for the piles of bikes my husband and I were shocked and figured that teh previous owner must have left them. Have since learned that the husband collects them, restores them and sells them. We are talking two piles probably 20' x 20' and 5' tall. Can't imagine having to move that mess.

Did I miss something here?
        Sometimes you have to travel a few hours to find a vet that you have not stiffed so much that they are still willing to give you service.

          • I'm not a stallion owner, but I'm also another one who is wondering about the silence from RSF on the purchase of a known stallion that was seized after the purchase is said to have taken place. Maybe it really WAS legit, just coincidental with the timing...

            but Wellington has Internet, there are plenty of smartphones around, and the grapevine would be VERY obvious about now.

            RSF's Facebook page said they were heading to Wellington six days AFTER Romantic Star was seized. She had to know. But while a hint was made on the 17th, no further mention has been made. At all. Why?

            It's just a curious thing to me...

            • I own Popeye who is a German Riding pony stallion. My pony stallion doesn't compete for breedings with GFF's stallions. I have nothing to gain by Jill Burnell going out of business. But having imported Popeye and having him stand at Hilltop Farm in MD - I am well aware of the level of care, custody and control that must be maintained with stallions who stand for breeding. I have been breeding for 26 years now and we follow best practices for maintainng our mares and young horses and riding horses. And I would only deal with stallion owners who do the same.
              When we have imported from Germany we follow all the FDA requirements for quarantine. When our horses travel to competitions or for training we also follow best practices with respect to shots, Coggins, Health Certificates and isolation if they are returning to our farm where we have in foal mares.
              EVA is a very serious issue and there is protocol which must be followed for ALL stallions, and specifically for stallions that shed. In my opinion thees procedures have not been followed in the GFF situation.

              So horsenut93136 - you comments don't apply.

                On the other side of this coin, wondering if RSF knows their name is being used in this situation?

                • I think we should be very careful in linking criminal activity to folks that have dealt with JB... it wont help the horses if folks are afraid to take ownership is they fear being accused of being "involved" in some way?

                  i also think that probably most folks legally involved will not be posting public info re all of this ....

                  • I was just on Rising Star's facebook page which is extremely active with lots of photos, high end Stallion ad's, etc. A new up and coming horse business which is highly based off of horses from Jill's and there has never been one mention of Romantic Star being owned or purchased by Rising Star (as mentioned in the article) and I find that extremely, extremely odd considering he is a highly successful and highly well known stallion in the H/J community. If they purchased the stallion; you'd think that they'd be raving about it all over the place about the new addition. He was never mentioned in any of their new stallion ads for 2013 either. Breeding season is very quickly approaching and I find it very odd that there has beenno mention of this "purchase" from the Rising Star end of the deal. It's just very WEIRD

                      But you are implying that Rising Star cannot handle this situation. So again maybe you have another agenda. But whatever still comes across as sour grapes as people other than myself keep pointing out. But obviously your business sense tells you otherwise.

                        • One other loose end that worries me. In one of the articles, when describing the wounds inflicted on Romantic Star due to a fight between 2 stallions, the word "brutal" was used. These are not surface wounds that can be cleaned up with Novalsan (sp) scrub. RS obviously has deep gashes requiring immediate medical treatment.

                          BUT, nothing has beeen said about the other stallion. In a fight, it is not reasonable to think that one horse has such horrible wounds that the Humane Society took him up to Davis, while the other stallion remains unscathed.

                          The other stallion's wounds must not be as severe, but I am sure he must have incurred some marks/wounds. HOW is this stallion being treated when there is no quality water on the farm? He has obviously been left outside, in an enclsure, surrunded by electric wire, where he can roll in dirt and manure thereby infecting himself.

                          Do we knoiw anything about this second stallion? Do we even know who he is?

                              Yep - pretty interesting that her "Vet" claims to only service southern Placer County, which is 130+ miles away from the ranch. Wonder how Jill convinces them to travel so far out to her? There any many vets in her area, but FB posts indicate that they are not willing to work with her (and one sued her and is owed money).

                              From the vet's site
                              What’s new…Expanding services to Placer County due to many recent requests, we are expanding our service area to include southern Placer County, from Roseville to Meadow Vista. Please call anytime for routine or emergency services
                              Roseville is a 125 miles from Jill's. I would imagine that is a pretty hefty farm call fee!

                              • This is not a particularly hospitable bunch here, so I can understand Ronda not wanting to post her business here. She has been a well respected breeder and stallion owner for a number of years. If RS is truly going to end up with her, it is a good thing. None of us know why she is doing what she is doing. Let it play out. There may be a reason.

                                  Are we even sure we ought to buy the "stallion fight" story? Those photos show a property that is an absolute horse-trap - entirely plausible that Romantic Star got himself entangled in one of those junk piles.

                                    "Highly based off"? By what measure? I first became familiar with RSF a number of years ago (on these boards, actually) due to the lovely jumper stallion, Cielo B - and I fail to see a business model that is "highly based off of" horses from JB. I see a lot of imported stallions, stallions from the same breeder as Cielo, and/or older stallions with performance records.

                                      • Lord Helpus, what I have heard is the other stallion was injured, but Romantic Star took the brunt.

                                        I don't know if anyone is actually saying Ronda is doing anything illegal; more that everyone is wondering if it really happened, if she knows she's being named, and that nobody actually TRUSTS what Jill and her attorney claim.
