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!

  • Burnell may simply be a user at heart, but I also think she is mentally ill in someway. It's not an excuse, but a possible reason why things went from top-of-the-world to mud pit in a relatively short time frame.

    And there, but for the grace of gods or chance, go most of us. It can't be fun being her :/


    (Yes, yes, I KNOW horses and people have suffered at her hands, I DO feel worse for them. But I can't help feeling sorry for her too. I'm a sap, so sue me... or drag me over the coals like many of you have everyone else you can possibly think of. )

    • So sorry. I just got back online. I edited post #4119 and removed

            If he is indeed at the farm mentioned in the last post on that thread, you may want to go back & read PP's posts about the Hanoverian mare she purchased from said breeder. It will explain a lot.

            Let's keep the focus on JB and her actions.

            • If she has a problem With the breeder of her mare or Adamo, that's too bad. It has nothing to do with the case at hand.

                Ah, OK, will try to find it. Even so, there are only so many places around to train that have cross country courses. That is the only one that I know of, other than up in Santa Rosa.

                  I suppose a narcissist with no conscience who behaves in antisocial ways could be deemed mentally ill. But I consider that a copout and think people should take responsibility for themselves and their animals. I am curious to know if she ever had job and earned her way to "the top of the world", or if she was always one to live in a trashy mudpit but came into a windfall such as her inlaws' equity line?

                  • At least with the prompt involvment of the Marin Humane services hopefully this situation will not turn out like the one going on in LA at present.

                        Yes, a former RN (I heard she was fired from her last job) though her license is still active.

                        Go to Registered Nurse and enter her last name in the search box.

                        • Getting all confused here. Why must we not mention equinedrivers name? (just saw someone mention removing her name) And does someone know that Adamo is actually working for Jill? Or is he guilty til innocent?

                          Comment


                          • I believe horsenut that Equinedrivers name was removed from a post prompting those wronged to get in contact with her. Since she/he appears to have not followed through or perhaps just been a fluffer planted by JB herself there is no point in contacting her.

                                It is scary to imagine a nurse keeping her inlaws in such hellish conditions! I hope her patients received better care than her inlaws, seized horses, dead bathtub chickens and the dogs living in a field in crates!

                                I am still curious if she mined her inlaws equity line to buy all the expensive stallions and imported horses ? Nurses can't afford that kind of lifestyle, even competent ones. So where did the money come from?

                                  • I removed Eqndrvr as a contact becuse it was brought to my attention that she had offered to organize information related to the fraud aspect of this and she didn't follow through with anything.

                                    So, contact Marin Humane Society Animal Services at 415.506.6209.

                                    • Last night between 7pm - 7:30pm I tried to get on this forum (or the Chronicle board in general) and could only get to the index page of SHB. I did see however there was an update on the right hand side of the page, under "Most Popular" (posted by the Chronicle) regarding a statement made. I believe it was called "Burnell issues statement" or something like that. It is now gone and I'm thinking that was part of the reason I couldn't get on the site (due to the removal of the statement). Did anyone else see that? Or better yet, get to read it?

                                      (I even reported the site being down during that time)

                                        • As an Animal Science graduate who did not persue a vet career; I can honestly say it's a SCARY sight to see "what" actually makes it into vet school. The majority of students who persue vet school (and I say the majority) are extremely book smart but have zero common sense when it comes to working with large animals ex: horses, cattle, sheep, etc. The majority of them have a dog or cat at home but have never touched a large animal.They can barely put a halter on a horse, they are extremely smart. They go to college and study the "science" of animals in a classroom and rarely actually learns the necessary animal skills to work with them.

                                          I went to school and graduated with an associates and a bachelors in A.S. because I had worked with large animals since I was very young and I wanted to make a career out of it. I have a lot of common sense large animal knowledge that I gathered frommy years and years of working with these animals. I was never good in a classroom or studying and I hated working in lab conditions. I was the type of student who'd much rather be in the barn getting my hands dirty. With that being said; I had no interest in vet school because I never had a 4.0 GPA and I was never going to make it in if I applied. When we were working in the barns, hands-on, with any animals I always found myself assisting the non-experienced pre-vet students with any and all of the activities they had to do. They were simply-put: clueless. I wasn't the only one to notice;it was an ongoing joke with my fellow classmates about the pre-vet students. Extremely book smart but no skills when it actually came to working with the animals they would one day be working on.

                                          The above story doesn't cover all vet students; there are a handful out there who have the entire package: brains and real-life working with animal skills.

                                          The fact remains and it's the honest truth: the majority of vet students or recent graduates are in-fact pretty "dumb"; you'd probably be scared for your horse's life if you witnessed their "skills"
