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!

    no mention there of any sale of Romantic Star
    Here we go..looks like she now has her attorney going in circles and forgetting what the sociopath told her originally. Didn't she try and say RS was not hers? Then she said she sold him. Leave it to JB to continue to try and sell breedings to an animal that she said was not hers in the first place. Now she is going to try and use RS as a law suit about how her business has suffered from the truth being public. JB you sold the horse, right??

    Comment


    • I have read most of this thread but have refrained from comment. However, as a veterinarian (and UCD grad) I always wonder why a vet would write a legal document supporting a negligent animal owner. According to her own observations the vast majority of these breeding stock animals are below the ideal score of 5. It would seem to me that your final report might state more something "this owner is in need of further education and guidance with improving the health and care of her herd. I recommend the following to be done: adequate hay storage, adequate housing structures for individual feeding, adequate record keeping of vaccinations, deworming, medical treatments, etc". It would seem counter intuitive to her own reputation and possible litigation to dismiss the lack of those things and deem that things are sufficient. I have been involved in animal neglect cases of puppy mill facilities in our area at the request of breeders and/or animal control. I was bluntly honest about the poor living conditions, poor animal care with regards to vaccinations, deworming of puppies, poor whelping areas, and neglect of grooming/dental care and foot care (these dogs are houses/ raised 100% of the time of metal grates) of their breeding stock. The puppy mill owners were not happy with me but at least I could sleep at night.

        This farm has been having good luck with Jill. Hmmmmmm

        Purchased a 2012 inutero out of Pop Tart and the 2013 inutero out of Corlandia
        I thought I read just a few pages back that Corlandia is not owned by JB/GFF??

          She isn't any longer but that has not stopped her selling 2 in utero foals from her. It's plain as day on the website.

          Comment


          • Yes, according the the GFF website, in the 2013 Warmblood Foals section of the Nursery, Corlandia's 2013 inutero foal has been purchased by WestWood Farms, and by Sidney of Tennessee! She has the exact same photos and paragraph for both, and one is right below the other. Obviously the website is mostly fiction. I hope that is entirely false, and that neither one has actually paid for a foal.
            It's 2017. Do you know where your old horse is?

                There is no record keeping for invoice purposes? Where is the paperwork charging for X trims for X horses - that any business wants (customer and provider) for tax and record keeping? Business 101 is not in play here. Not cool.

                  You read my mind...I sat here thinking "wow, not much for keeping records, is he? Not a farrier I'd use...not with business practices that negates paperwork."

                      ok no conspiracy theory here. But if all of these declarations are obtainable by the public (because it seems there has been no "gag" order or anything preventing the release of them) Why are we getting a daily tidbit? and how come we can't just see MHS's case against Jill including the pics of the 3 other horses seized?????? because presumably these were all filed with the court and obtaining them would just require getting them from the court?

                          At the bottom of the Vet Declaration, it shows that the veterinarian has only been practicing for 2 years. While I totally agree with what you suggested above of what should have also been in the letter, I'm betting inexperience played a roll in missed information i.e. blunt suggestions included at the end of the letter).

                          What I don't understand, her daughter's filly (Rendition and then renamed Rapture) is the one featured in Jill's blog http://grayfoxfarm.blogspot.ca/2012/...your-baby.html, in which Jill humiliates the breeder (vet's daughter) about the filly's supposed condition when she arrived at Jill's. Why on earth would you then go to Jill's farm and make a Declaration on behalf of her?

                            I went ahead and asked that, as I know myself and a lot of people are confused. The farm photos are part of a public record with the Marin County Community development violations. This is totally separate from the seized horses that were taken by the Marin Humane Society. The vet and farrier declarations are part of the Writ of Mandate Ms. Weems filed. So, one part is action taken by the County itself regarding what was happening on the land, one part is the Writ of Mandate filed by Ms. Weems and the other part is dealing with the horses by Marin Humane Society. The County violations records are public record, the Writ of Mandate is public record, but the Marin Humane Society actions...not so much. That is why no further photos of the horses have been released.

                              That is perplexing why would you take a client on that has in the past disparaged your own daughter publicly ?? Could she have refused the case or is it part of a hired position and she had no choice.

                              Furthermore why would Jill's lawyer choose a vet that has a conflict of interest ...unless of course she is hoping to use that fact in her favor.

                              • That farrier declaration answered my question. Yep, that's the same farrier that I had paid for bar shoes and pads on my mare while she was at GFF (she came home completely barefoot, misshapen and abscessed). I have pictures to backup what his "trims" did to my mare's feet in the course of a few short months. I actually called to speak with him after my mare came home. Seems like an old cowboy type, but he made a mess of my mare's feet.

                                  I could see the original pics we saw on RMHP did seem from the county (why would Jill let MHS into her trailer),, But are you saying the vet/shoer declarations are part of the county's case against her? I would have thought they would have been part of MHS's case.

                                  Confusing but am glad more pics/documents are getting out because they speak so much more than words especially for anyone who might have been left on the fence.

                                      Well I would think so, but that should mean that the file is open for anyone to see right? If you go to the courthouse/records dept and ask for a file it is not a one sided file, it contains documents from both sides.

                                        See my post above, I corrected it. The vet and farrier declarations were part of the Writ if Mandate. The farm photos were part of the County violations public records.

                                          Which is why I wondered a week ago if money had actually changed hands for this horse. Seems a little suspicious that the "new" owner couldnt find out any information on him. Maybe there was a contract, and he really is in bad enough shape that she backed out of it.
