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!

  • This is so miserable! As for dealings with JB prior to the fall from grace? Ugh. Known for a long time what was up! And poor RS. A nut case far as I could tell from my VA days and now aged, not well and wheeling and dealing behind the scenes? May he retire with grace! As for others? May the mares get soft landings, aloha gelded, federalist retired and RW? There are fans and non fans ...as said, whatever works for your own breeding program. But what a travesty. As ysomeone who knew of this person Pre her morphing into a "hunter breeder"? There has been profound decline in every way.

      Having met RS, he is anything but a nutcase.

            I'm guessing by her VA days she meant she'd seen the horse when she lived in VA. No question Jill is a nutcase, but I'm not reading it that way.

            Agree that Aloha needs to be gelded. Very limited scope wise (3 foot is a struggle), small, rotten temperament, and so on. Federalist is basically infertile from what's been said on this board and I fear he will end up meeting a not so nice fate. He does not deserve that, none of them do.

            • Another take on the " Blingy and Black" syndrome in general,, Blingy and black attracts attention. If u took a poll, many wish for blingy and black, so the color is very easy to market. ESPECIALLY when the foal is out of a good mare with a long performance history herself..

              I feel Redwine has had the opportunity to breed to more top mares for the hunters than most stallions in the USA (in part because of his bling and the huge marketing campaign) .. hence he BETTER have a reputation for quality offspring.. or he would have a rep for pulling down a good mare.

              no sour grapes. just an opinion about the breeding world..

              • Geez what happened to Kathy's wonderful idea to stick to helping the horses? If certain people would like to discuss the merits of various stallions how bout a new thread? Stallions we would like to see gelded. (some people spayed or neutered) I can think of quite a few.

                Magic if you want to opine on the breeding world, does that mean we should have a discussion of your stallions? The thread title is beware of dealing with Jill Burnell, not let's pick on suffering stallions.

                  • I let Elke at Windswept Farms (breeders and prior owners of Federalist) know about the situation with Jill and she was going to get in touch with the contact from the humane society to try and make sure Federalist finds a soft place to land if needed.

                          • ok,I really want those Art Deco earrings, and I've always wanted an ear bonnet in "my" colors. You guys just keep on fighting amongst yourselves about who's dissing who and which stallion does, or doesn't, have any talent. That way you'll stay away from the auction.

                            • What a bunch of hypocrites ~ half of you were behind JB and her stallions for years! If you want me to call you all out I will ~ Enough already!

                              I am glad that Ronda is getting Romantic Star once he heals from his broken jaw and serious malnutrition. Even if he never breeds again, at least he is in a great place. Period the end! Three Cheers for Rising Star Farm and her program!

                              We have Galileo1998 who I believe helped facilitate JB getting Federalist in the first place letting the prior owners Elke at Windswept Farms know about his current situation ~ so nice of you ~

                              I think it is a disgrace that instead of putting your resources and directing your negative energy and comments... oh forget it.... If you each have a mirror look in it and honestly tell yourselves what you see.

                              Why are stallion owners and breeders so jealous and spiteful... I'll bet if most of you had the resources you would be going after Redwine & Aloha since so many bred to them at one point or another anyway. Personally I am with 3Dogs and think that gelding them is not a bad idea.

                              Can we start hearing about to good coming out of this horrific saga....

                                    Bill,
                                    I honestly don’t know how you wade through all of this and remember who’s who. We get lost in it all, and have never really kept track of the posters here on COTH, unless we know them personally or have had some direct interaction with them. Just wanted to say that I agree with so much of what you are saying here. I hope there are lessons learned and that we all take a step back and review how this mess came to be, in the hopes that it not happen again.

                                    • Thanks Elaine ~ It is very easy for me to keep track. I am very supportive of NA Breeders and have seen many come and go, reinvent themselves, and turn on each other like junkyard dogs.
                                      I feel very bad for those who have offspring from these stallions as all this negative attention has people turning the other way at the mere mention of their progeny's sire. Many are coming of age to perform, so hopefully that will help.

                                      • Silver Balls - if by "helped facilitate" Jill's purchase of Federalist 4-5 years ago, you mean I went to the sale and said "yep, he looks like a nice horse" to Jill, who I thought was a nice, normal person at that time then yes, that was my level of involvement. How nice for you that you've never been wrong in your opinion of someone. Elke appreciated me letting her know and that's all that matters to me.

                                          Shauna ~ we all make mistakes and I can understand your remorse. But now you can rest easy since you informed the previous stallion owner. Sigh....
