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 pictures of that poor mare actually made me cry. Who or what could actually do that to a living, breathing animal? I will pray tonight for the ones that have not yet found their way out of her care. In the meantime.....bid, bid & donate!

        Granted she could have others that aren't on her site. I assume as the case progresses it will be updated. Makes me wonder who the bay horse was that was first pictures on the story.
        It's not Pop Tart. She is at her home in Ohio where she has resided since she was born. I'm still looking for her imaginary 2012 and 2013 foals:-)!

        • She deserves to rot for doing this to these animals. That poor mare...it's always a shock to see, even while knowing what body score numbers do look like.

          Personally, I am doubting the vet story given by JB and her so-called "attorney." No vet would let this go.

          I also want to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to the one(s) that turned her in. Well done!! Now to pray justice is served...

              • Here's Devil's Sis's foal from last year, if it is actually last year. The little bit of the mare you can see in the picture doesn't look bad, so this decline has been since then.

                • Here's some news for you--Jill's attorney to file class action lawsuit

                  http://www.marinij.com/novato/ci_223...second-bid-get

                  "People have to be afraid of the lack of notice, the lack of procedure, that the Marin Humane Society imposes on whomever they've decided to take a dislike to," Weems said Wednesday.

                  She said she plans to file a class-action suit on behalf of animal owners who have had their expensive property seized and been forced to pay onerous fines."

                      that has to be a joke! She is running out of arguments to defend JB, so now she is making it against all seizures.... well good luck with that!
                      Now is the time for the wronged purchasers/leasers to start their own class action suit...
                      The gall!

                        No, not if you were reading for comprehension.

                        The funniest (not hah hah funny) thing about this is I could be at best considered the furthest thing from a supporter of JB and her blingy black stallions. They are seriously not my cup of tea* and never have been, and yet even I have to look at some of the stuff posted on this thread and shake my head in bemused wonder. Other posters coughcoughcertainbreederscoughcough are totally ruining my own long anticipated schaudenfreude with their own brand of crazy.

                        I do feel a bit sorry for MHS since they are a) doing their job as best as they can and b) no doubt reading this thread as evidenced by today's flurry of updates but are c) completely (blissfully) clueless to the undercurrents of agendas and krazee, posters, their alters and mini-minions. That knowledge can only come from over a decade of watching this board (up front and behind the scenes) through the oldenburg wars and the great forum shutdown (and ensuing hysteria) to today.

                        *possibly the most tactful statement I have ever made.
                        Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.

                                    First, there is absolutely nothing to say that the website is accurate... rather the opposite. How many people have said that such and such mare has never left their care and gone to JB. So the number you state is probably not accurate. Articles have mentioned more than 2 dozens horses... 4 seized... The rest are still at the farm under supervision by MHS.
                                    I don't see where your problem is!

                                          As far as we have all been able to gather, 1 stallion and 3 mares are in the care of Marin County Humane Society elsewhere. The rest of unknown number of horses are on JB's farm, or if not on that particular piece of propery have been farmed out to a variety of places with her supporters (hopefully a dwindling number of). Hopefully with the judge ruling, now twice, in favour of MCHS, it will open the door for the removal and rehoming of the rest of the horses, whether or not they are in as serious condition.
