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!

  • NJRider, I'm not doubting that's what the new owner was told, nor that shipping was arranged. On the contrary! I am simply doubting she was told the truth of HOW it all came together.

    Owners pull blood, fill out the coggins paperwork (including markings), and drop it all off at the vet's office all the time (NOT saying I necessarily agree with that method, nor do I do it). There is any number of theories that can be tossed for the health certificate, I won't go there.

    I just sincerely doubt Jill let any vet on her property, even with the new owner paying for it. And she has a history with shippers, too...so that could have been interesting. Could have.

    I am on the buyer's side here.

    • It think it is related to whether a vet actually examined the horse about 10 days before the seizure and what the condition was of the horse at that time. If the horse was in poor condition then, perhaps any inappropriate actions by either the vet or JB will be added to the mix as well.

        Holy crap, seriously? I have NEVER known a vet that would let me do that! Well, maybe I know some, but I've never used one that would let me...

        • There is a pattern on COTH that we’ve all seen hundreds of times over the years… where someone raises a legitimate concern, and gets shot down (and attacked) by a bunch of groupies and/or aliases of the one at the center of the concern. Some of these protective groupies are well meaning, but mis-informed.

          Many posters on this thread have commented that they tried to call attention to the mess before it got so far out of hand, and they were attacked and maligned for doing so.

          I think that there are legitimate concerns about some of these details, and given the track record of one of the parties involved… it seems appropriate to question things. I don’t think anyone has anything but good intentions, to see that things move in a good direction for the horses involved, and for all of the parties involved, including the creditors who are legitimately owed money from the dispersal of assets. And anyone reading this thread knows that there are credible reports of judgments against one of the parties here.

          I doubt the shipping would have been arranged without these needed papers in hand, but who knows.
          We have shipped stallions, and have a bit of experience with the topic (but do not claim to be experts here). I am a bit surprised that one could get a vet out to do a health certificate and have the results back in time to schedule transport…. in such a brief period of time. Horse owners in Marin County, and / or Kathy and Jos would have more info... but it does seem rather quick.

          • Never had a positive Coggins and a stallion could be on the road in 24 hrs as that is all it takes to get blood results back for the shipper. One sets up shipping often before doing the coggins as it is not likely to be positive.

            • I have seen both, vets that if they know you and generally know the horse will fill out a HC without an examination. That being said, I've also had a horse examined for a HC to ship out of state and recieved the HC on the spot. Of course these horses already had a current negative coggins and vaccination record.

                  And you know this how? What source you been getting YOUR information from?? Your posts are suspect. As I recall, you also sang praises about Jill's place when you were out there last spring. Methinks perhaps it is self-ingratiating. A way to hopefully make sure you were one that "did" get paid? Hmmm? No, lets DO keep the subject of Ronda at the forefront of this discussion right where she probably belongs.

                  Here's how I see it.

                  There are LOTS of people that are doing everything in their power to help rectify this mess NONE of which is their creation. There is an entire AUCTION dedicated to helping the cause and as far as I can tell, I don't see ANY of Rising Star's stallions donated to that. How odd? However, RSF has "heroically" *laughs sarcastically* swooped in and "rescued" Romantic Star from the evil hands of Jill Burnell/GFF. Gimme a break. Oh but wait - she's also represented by the SAME attorney as JB/GFF. Hmmm. I'm unsure as to why that should be disregarded as fact. WHY is that, do you think? Birds of a feather? And then she has the audacity to whine about not getting updates on Romantic Star from the Marin Humane Society. REALLY?? Why don't you call the vet that is allegedly claiming that Jill Burnell is taking GREAT care of those horses? Presumably they are also supporting the attorney in the attorney's claim that a stallion injured on one day can drop to a body score of ??? - apparently low enough to be seized - the next as a result of the injury! Lets not forget that please, the stallion apparently went from A HEALTHY CONDITION TO NEEDING TO BE SEIZED IN 10 DAYS! In fact, I'd like to get the name of that vet so that I can make sure that no one "I" know makes the mistake of using his/her services if it turns out to be more than alleged. Surely someone can provide us with that name? (off to go search through court documents) - Oh! Here we go. Dr. Cheryl Ellis, Foothill Mobile Veterinary Service 3281 Luneman Road, Placerville, CA 95667 - 530-622-0174. I certainly think she deserves some of those well deserved accolades. <rolling eyes>. Obviously another "hero" willing to go the extra mile for who? I have been loosely following this saga, but I saw that Rising Star Farm (Yep. Right there on Ms. Stavisky's Facebook wall!) had recently gotten a health cert for Romantic Star to be shipped, so his body condition must have been deemed suitable for the travel and yet suitable to be seized by a Humane Society and not returned by order of the Court when a writ is served? I think that says something about the stallion's condition and perhaps the alleged "health" certificate. Hopefully if that is the case, the signatory on the health certificate will also be investigated.

                  But, let's look at this a little bit further. By purchasing Romantic Star, she has essentially put funds into the "wonderful" JB/GFF's coffers and thereby assists the woman in continuing on her way of shouldering people out of money, foals, mares, breedings, etc. Yeah...Ronda is a "wonderful" person, isn't she. AMAZING! Worthy of all your glowing remarks. More like self-serving, self-agrandizing, conceited, self-absorbed and certainly villainous in this situation. She's lost ALL credibility in my eyes and I will question anyone that sees her as a hero in this. Who is she helping here? Really? The horses? The humane society? Jill Burnell? Ronda Stavisky? Who? Shame on her and anyone else attempting to sweep any of this under the rug for the sake of keeping Jill the star of this disgusting mess. She's as much a problem here as Jill.

                  The actual heroes in all of this are those people that HAVE gone above and beyond in trying to make this right. Anyone who has donated a penny, made suggestions, offered breeding services. The ones that get nothing out of this. Ronda Stavisky is NOT one of those and indeed has compounded the problem by essentially enabling and assisting the biggest crook of them all in this. Jill Burnell. Assisting her, sharing her same council, it stinks and you all know it.

                  Honesty doesn't always pay, but dishonesty always costs! And I think in this particular situation, it's cost Ms. Stavisky her reputation - as it should. I know I certainly won't be sending ANY of my mares or business her way and I'll make sure to suggest that there are other considerably more reputable stallion owners who have shown their true colors in this situation. Anyone looking for a breeding to a wonderful stallion, I would suggest that they look at the list of stallion owners that "have" contributed to the auction for Leg-Up and throw their resources to those that are proving that they are an asset to the sporthorse industry. Not some blood sucking leech that sucks the life force out of all that is right and good.

                  • I understand your position but I think anyone who gets a horse away from Jill Burnell is doing the horse a favor first and foremost. I also think if you really had faith in your position you wouldn't have created an alter to say it. I don't really care about the details until they are all safe, then we can attempt to figure out who the good guys and the bad guys really are.

                      We have horses shipped to us for retirement from all over the U.S. and Canada. You can get a coggins and a health certificate with a 24 hour turnaround with no issues, this is done routinely. You can also arrange cross country shipping quickly and easily with a good shipper, I've helped our clients do it dozens of times. I see nothing odd about the timeframe of coggins/health certificate and shipping at all.

                        It doesn't help a single horse if the legitimacy and legality of rehoming, selling, or transfer is questionable. It adds red tape to the mess and makes it more difficult for Marin and the proper officials to get the remaining animals to safety. Muddies the waters.

                        • Yes, it would be helpful if people would post under their own identity. And consider only speaking the way you would directly to someone's face.

                          I had heard that Romantic Star had a broken jaw. It was somewhat of a rumor but from a source that often does "know" things because of extensive networking. Often, rumors are right in these cases. Too bad we can't know.

                          I do agree that the sale may be in question if Jill owes so much to so many. Seems that nothing she owns should be free and clear for her to sell. Would like to see all the horses in good homes though.

                            ABSOLUTELY! Thank you SO much for spelling it out. I agree 100%. If you told me she was fighting to get the oldest, sorriest broodmare out of there and on her way to Fla, I would still be disgusted for funding Jill, but cheered the efforts to rescue a horse.

                            But rescuing Romantic Star? You are looking at continuing to make money off a VICTIM of Jill's, who has suffered enough. AND you keep allowing Jill to be a control-freak and let her decide where the horses she starved and didn't feed (while she went inside and sat down at her trailer for dinner and a warm bed) are placed. Personally, Id rather see MHS place every horse in loving homes.

                            • Not trying to be snarky, but LadyBug, do you mean that we should all post our first and last names?

                              I have to agree with poniponyponi, I've thought these thoughts as well. Especially when it comes to sharing an attorney, just seems odd, but may serve a purpose somehow.

                              For what it's worth, I have personally seen horses lose body condition quickly when they are injured or sick (especially if they cannot eat due to a broken jaw). That would not surprise me, although quickly and overnight are two different things.

                                  About getting a health certificate in 24 hours, sure if you’re Edgar or a reputable breeder /horse owner, who pays their bills and has all the health records on file and up-to-date… it’s not a problem to have the vet you’ve used regularly for years drop everything to fit you in at a moment’s notice. I guess I should have phrased it that “in the context of this thread, and the stories here,” it seemed rather quick, and a bit odd that he got a health certificate under these circumstances, given the Marin County feels he needed to be seized.

                                  Without question this thread has raised issues that tug at our heart strings… it has been something of an emotional roller coaster to say the least. Many of us know the horses and the people involved. You can read the frustration in every line of ponyponyponi's post. It goes a bit far, but I agree with some of the points he/she makes, and I completely understand wanting to say that all anonymously. I think that post of ponyponyponi's touches on some of the things we were thinking...

                                  • fwiw, if a horse has a broken jaw and presumably cant eat - it would drop weight rather quickly i would assume? so how much weight can a horse drop in 10 days if it cant eat?

                                    also, re: purchasing horses from JB - i dont quite understand the angst here - hopefully any $$ (if there is any) going to JB will pay for feed for the horses - which is a good thing.....

                                    it is not good for the horse to have to be seized and then put in foster care etc.... having been around there are good places for horses to land, but there are also not so good places - and since there are so many - it seems to me better to work this all out with the horses remaining where they are as long as they are being fed/watered/etc.

                                    eta: i do not get this attack of folks wanting to help the horses by purchasing them? this is going to make it very difficult to re-home them if folks are afraid to take them for fear of rumors of "helping JIll"

                                    • Unless I'm wrong, and I very well could be, California law will determine if a sale is valid. I would think, without knowing California law, that unless there is a recorded lien on a horse, it could be sold and funds received. The buyer would probably be what is called a Bona-fide Purchaser for Value and would own the horse. The creditors would go against the seller for any money and other assets.

                                      If the sale is somehow fraudulent, then the buyer would not be a BFPV.

                                      I can easily see how a stallion station would like to have RS because he is a lovely, lovely horse even without having any prior or long term relationship to JB. Get a call that a lovely stallion must be sold / is for sale, and would you be interested? One would think that a stallion station like RSF might get several such calls per month on mares and stallions.

                                      The fact that she is sharing a lawyer with JB could well be from ignorance. If I got a call from the seller's attorney that the horse had been seized, I very well might say, without knowing more, "Would you handle this for me since you're already involved against the people who seized him?" If such a call came from JB, remember how convincing she can be.

                                      All of the above is just guessiing and supposition.

                                        His jaw was broken within 24-hours of his being seized, so not that much. He would have already been WAY thin before he and the other stallion fought.

                                          I disagree. Foster homes and care provided by a humane society in the eye of the public is a thousand percent improvement over remaining in Jill's care. She doesn't have the money for feed, sounds like she is about to lose the property and the horses will continue to be used or given to people who may give them back to Jill later.

                                          She no longer deserves to make decisions reguarding their care. NO ONE should support her, give her money, or hide horses. She should be left alone under the scrutiny of a humane society that so far has acted quickly and in the horse's best interest. My only wish is that they would release the photos of the horses that they seized, and THEN see how many folks here would support her.
