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!

  • So I've got a question.

    All this money being raised for 3 or 4 seized horses. Has anybody here actually seen in the last 2 months, either in pictures or with their own eyes, the condition of these animals?

    Because I'm sort of astonished at the fervor here for horses that, as far as I can tell, we have no real proof are in serious distress. I'm not saying they don't need to be out out JB's keeping - they CERTAINLY do! But I don't remember this level of fundraising for the seizure of groups starving horses that were clearly, graphically depicted.

    I'm not saying that fundraising is bad, I think it's fabulous. I'm just sort of bemused by this whole auction deal.

      I would guess that the person who purchased is responsible as it is their horse. They could maybe then go after the barn owner for not providing adequate care.
      Well, obviously it's in the Sales Contract. And wow, so you're all telling me that I'm the only person in the world who makes sure this IS in the Sales Contract? Really? Nobody else makes sure they have some coverage (besides insurance which is also a no-brainer)? If seller doesn't like that clause, I walk my cash out the door - because sometimes there can be accidents which can be due to negligence. FWIW- if you buy a horse at an auction, you are buying without Sales Contract and you are accepting what you see is what you get. Not even close to the same thing. I have only once bought a horse where I didn't have this put in a contract and that was my buckskin mare. I've been buying and selling horses for 35+ years, both in WB auction and person-to-person!


      Anyway, back to the real topic at hand:

      • Let's Talk

        I am a Canadian Sport Horse breeder who purchased not one but two breedings to Redwine paid in full in good faith in 2010.(Have signed contract and money order receipt for those doubters out there) For two years I tried desperately to get semen from Jill and for two years I had no babies. She misrepresented herself and her farm with such beautifull websites and facebook pages. I am sure that I am one of a large amount of people who can tell the same or similar story. FRAUD!!!

        It amazes me that this woman can steal money from people all over and put the health of these animals in jepordy. She has continued her illegal dealings(fraudulent contracts/taking money) from innocent clients for years with many of you standing watching and you still support her. When is enough, enough? When willl she be made to pay! How is it possible that she can accomplish all of this with no legal consiquences? Do you think you will still benefit from her friendship? Open your eyes!!!

        Let's get these horses to a safer place and make this woman accountable for her actions.

          So, you clearly have a legitimate problem, with paperwork to back it up. Have you filed any sort of claim against her? That has been a large part of this thread - those who have real, true claims, particularly of fraud, are the only ones who can get anything done. No one who doesn't have a real case can do anything to stop her through legal channels. Only through word of mouth. So, have you obtained a judgement?

          • Saje, I think the fact three of the four are hospitalized at UC Davis is enough proof they were in extreme distress. But maybe that's just me...

            • I think Kenike the question is has anyone seen the horses (in person or via photo) or have any updates on them and what they are being treated for? I haven't seen any press releases besides saying they had been seized or photos, maybe I missed them? Genuine ?, no agenda.

                Again, the legal wranglings prohibit public information from being released.

                I have several friends who are lawyers, both criminal and civil litigators, and what they've told me is that when they're prepping for a really big case where a lot is on the line for their clients, they very much keep all information as close to the vest as possible, and also they tell their clients NOT to release any information to the media. "No comment!!" They do NOT want their adversary knowing where the legal team is heading with regards to litigation tactics and the like.

                Discuss what you will on this board, but all questions will most likely be met with silence until the dust settles in court! That's just my perspective and the little I know about legal/law anything. We just have to be patient, is all. It's hard, because we all love horses so much and want immediate resolution, but something as difficult as this will not have quick resolution, sorry to say.

                    Sales contracts vary. Sometimes ownership changes hands and buyer becomes boarder until such time as buyer can collect horse. It depends on the contract .

                    If you want to keep the thread on topic , maybe stop making these types of statements.

                      Unless you are on this thread 24 hours a day any pertinent information gets lost in the... contract this/ contract that. Alot of people on here argueing ridiculous points. Like you say, have claim and paper work to back it up...then get it together. This stands for leased, owned and borrowed horses. If you sent a horse to her or money you must have a paper trail of somesort. If you have a legitimate claim you obviously have something to say. If you want to follow this thread all the more power to ya! Let's stick with the facts and the topics that matter. If we don't any good information gets lost somewhere in the 180 some pages..

                      With that said if anyone has the current information (seeings how I am from Canada) on how or where to get the necessary paper work please post...

                      • You asked how she was able to keep on as long as she has. I answered it is because not enough people with legitimate, documentable cases have pursued them. You will need to contact a lawyer in Canada, preferably with equine experience, but not mandatory, and find out how to proceed. Each state down here has different laws/procedures, so what you have to do coming from Canada, you will have to research.

                            I understand what you're saying - and I have no dog in this fight (I own a gelding & I'm clear across the country) - but despite whether anyone has recently seen the seized horses, in person or in photos, the Humane Society won't seize animals unless there is a HUGE problem.

                            I think the auction is great, and I think the fervor (auction, donations) is wonderful. I also think the reason for the fervor, outrage, etc... is because so many people have been wronged by JB in ways an ethical mare owner (or new foal owner for those purchased in-utero) is beyond comprehension. The photos in the original post speak volumes - filthy "lab" in the kitchen, feces in a bathtub... ICK.

                            It is amazing the way everyone has pulled together for a good cause (the cause being supporting the horses and MHS).

                            I think if other starving horses had the nationwide exposure that JB's horses did, the same would/could be done for them. JMHO.

                            Let's help the horses & MHS. Bid on the auction & hopefully all of JB's horses will find a soft landing!

                            • There are undoubtedly more graphic and horrific humane issues out there to which we could dedicate our resources and effort but I feel like this is sort of taking care of our own. Many of us right here on this board were wronged financially by Jill Burnell and her evil empire and it is only fitting that we step up to help put an end to it. Sort of like giving money to the homeless shelter in your neighborhood rather than donating to starving kids in Africa. We are all her victims in one way or another either directly or as breeder's in the same industry. There by the grace of God go I, I am so thankful there is light at the end of the tunnel.

                                  • VLF Sporthorses, please pm Daventry and she will direct you to the right people. There are also a number of SOs who have said they would make good on valid contracts not honoured by JB. But please, follow through and report your situation. I was amazed and a bit disgusted at the lack of interest and response to Daventry's original post on EMG. ie please do not bother us with this... more or less.
                                    Good luck, but do act!
