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!

    I used to think she was a classic ne'er do well, with no sense of ethics or honor. But her increasingly erratic behavior pointed to far more serious issues, and now I realize it is full-fledged mental illness.

    I hope and pray her family can get her the psychiatric help she so desperately needs, but hoarding is a tough, tough issue to deal with. (We are dealing with it with someone in Mr. DY's family.) These people cannot see that they are mentally ill, and very few accept help readily. As Rodawn said, they need psychiatric intervention, medication, behavorial change management, etc. Many cannot be trusted to live on their own, because even after their houses are "cleaned up", they go right back to hoarding and living in their own filth. They basically have to be declared mentally incompetent, and then someone in the family has to become responsible for them. That is a heavy, heavy burden to take on.

      I gather part of the issue is from the first part of your comment - until relatively recently, it wasn't considered a legitimate mental illness, so no one put much effort into thinking about how you'd treat it. It was just someone being lazy or whatever.

      So treatments aren't that advanced - and many mental illnesses even were there are known treatments, the treatments aren't effective for everyone for whatever reason. That means figuring out what works and what doesn't is slow going. Brains can be really quite terribly uncooperative things.

        Amazing how much has been written (here and elsewhere) ... yet the dramas continue. Perhaps this is the last straw needed to get this person the much needed help she obviously requires ... which hopefully leads the horses to better lives.

            There are OCD disorders and other severe impulsive disorders! Agreed. MD here

            But this is someone who has been very ORGANISED in building what I view as a giant Ponzi scheme...and continues to confabulate all over the Internet. This is not a mental illness of the TYPE that leads to dysfunction...this is close to a sociopathic disorder....the brilliant web page looking like Middleburg VA when really a tiny plot in CA...the marketing blitz...the homey email blogs....not suggesting not a real disorder, but of the malignant kind .....and she has proved quite capable of torpedoing anyone who has crossed her!

              Speaking of hoarding. A quick look at her website for the 2013 season shows SIX new mares. And she's rebred the Radeschein mare who, while lovely, has the saddest shot ankles behind. Anything for a buck.

                I know the filly was supposedly sold. Anyone missing registration papers?

                Underneath are a set of Dutch registration papers for a 03/20/93 foal by E'Sops Fable x A which would be the broodmare "Laws Of Nature", owned by Jill Burnell. http://www.grayfoxfarms.com/lawsofnature.htm

                I think that pretty much proves it's Jill's place!

                I had heard from many people that she is a hoarder and her home was shocking. Come on, who would have that many broodmares who wasn't? Sad, sad, sad. Wonder if all of her followers on Facebook know about everything?
                Please scroll the photo in the link clear to the right. There are documents laying on the floor with the header for Gray Fox Farm. I've taken a screenshot of just that paper.

                      This! As my sister is mentally ill, I totally empathize and sympathize with anyone that has mental health issues and their loved ones who try to help them. This isn't just about mental health problems. While she may be mentally ill, please do NOT use this as an excuse for a lot of what she has done. It may explain SOME of the horrific things she has done, (and I DEFINITELY emphasize some} it does NOT excuse them. Most mentally ill people know right from wrong and try to live within the rules of morality and ethics. She does not. Dare to cross her? You too can receive nasty, vitriolic emails, phone calls and be featured on her personal aggrandizing Blog.

                        I know nothing about California real estate laws ,but how can she be foreclosed on one property and buying another ?? If she is doing it by land contract someone needs to warn the sellers.

                          This is so sad and I hope her family is able to persuade her to get help. I do a lot of house call vet work and have been to homes like this. Mostly the folks that live like that have a hard time taking care of themelves let alone their animals. It is quite sad because I think we can all agree that living in a home with feces and dead chickens in the tub is a serious problem and not at all a kin to being a poor house keeper.

                          I think we can also all agree that a breeding lab should never be so disorganized and dirty. If I kept my animal hospital like that customers would just walk out. There must be some level of cleaniness and order to run a breeding business properly. I have been to a lot of breeding facilities in the last 15 years, from the most basic to the fanciest, and have never seen one even remotely that bad.

                          For the benefit of herself and her animals I hope she can one day soon be receptive to getting help.

                            The horse area looks fine IN THIS PICTURE. SIL stated that before the move there were 30 horses in there, not the 3 that are there now...

                            This whole situation is horrible, it makes me sick to my stomach.

                              Good lord.

                              Hope all people and animals get out of that situation with no ill or lasting affects. And that people stop buying her horses, breeding to those stallions, or selling her mares. Awful, but it seems necessary.

                              Does her husband live in the same place? Is he trying to get her help, or just going along with what's happening? So many issues beyond just the horses.

                                    I, too, hope someone gets the poor dog. How sad did he look in those pictures.....

                                    Her site shows 2 dozen broodmares, and about 30 breedings for 2013. Wow.... She does seem to be a marketing genius because her site makes it look like she's running a 4-star breeding operation. Just goes to show how all is not as it seems on the internet.

                                      We were just at her website, she has 33 foals due in 2013. It's really hard to look at it all.

                                        I do feel for you, and for all the people who are still doing business with her and don't know what all is going on with her. I just hope for all of those people that they have received the correct semen and that next year they can get their breeding certs., etc. There are people on her Facebook page right now practically begging for their breeding certificates....
