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!

        What happened to his eye??

        (OK, I have horses....lots of very minor things can happen to make an eye swell up like that.....bumps, scrapes, bug bites, etc....I just wouldn't want to show anyone a picture of one of my horses with an eye like that without an explanation.)

        I certainly wouldn't want it on my FB page.

          And that would not happen because you have enough brains to not pose, or let others pose, happily for photos like nothing is wrong.

          Oh but wait, that would require you to realize something is wrong. Which in this case you have to wonder.

          • I just saw that photo too; he looks terrible. It makes me sad.

            • How old is the horse? It's not that unusual for an older horse to have trouble keeping weight on his ribs.

              Comment


              • He is in his late teens I believe.

                    He is 23 I believe. I have an older stallion and can appreciate the older fatter ones. If this picture was taken recently I have no issue with it.

                    Still does not bar the reality of financial criminal issues at hand.

                      • You do realize too that if anyone does a search for Redwine Stallion, this thread does not come up.... maybe time to add his name to the thread?
                        I also realize the SIL is long gone... what happened to the pictures of the new property she promised?

                        • Well, the photo isn't that bad for a 23 year old horse. I'm not standing up for Jill, just wanted to know the age of this horse because he looked elderly in the face to me.

                            No offense to you but I call BS. Age is not an excuse for poor condition. There are plenty of ways products that allow older horses to maintain condition well into their senior years. If you do nothing then yes that is what I'd except. Certainly not how one would imagine you'd care for a quality breeding stallion.

                            • BTW this was C&P'd from her FB apparently someone asked about his eye.

                              "Genna Gatdula Farrand What's wrong with his eye?

                              The horses lid is clearly swollen and there is DISCHARGE running down his face but its "nothing"

                              She could have bought a little street cred back by even saying "oh its the bugs or oh he has a blocked tear duct ..its nothing we're caring for it " but nope goes with "nothing"

                              • Honestly, if you zoom in, it's looks like the girls sunglasses are right I his eye, maybe that's why he has that one closed... And for an older guy I don't think he looks that bad... Don't flame me! If you look at his top line he seems to be maintaining his weight. Not an excuse for how jb conducts her business - which I'm not a customer- just my observation.

                                  yes however the eye lid is quite swollen. Could be infection, or a past injury.
                                  Eye discharge "could" be meds mixed with tears, or from infection. Hard to say. Either way, his eye doesn't look good.

                                  It's difficult to make a real assessment on his overall body condition from that photo. Especially on a 23 year old. But it seems that from what little can be seen in the photo, his condition (weight and coat) is similar to the horses seen in the photos taken by the SIL.

                                  Just MHO.

                                  • Sorry but that is a lot of discharge, if he were mine it warrants an immediate vet call. At the very least, his face should be clean and he needs to be wearing a fly mask. If my horse were uncomfortable, no way am I taking it off in full sun for a photo either. This is what I do not get about her, it's as if she truly thinks this stuff is normal and acceptable.

                                    I understand sometimes horses can be hard keepers, and I've had times when I was changing my feeding routine where I've had them lose a little condition, which comes back quickly once I tweak the fat content etc. While I do not like the ribs (especially for a horse not in work? I know he is a breeding stallion but it seems like most of the breedings go to Redwine anyway? Her own anyhow, so I don't know if that is an excuse for his condition), I wouldn't pass judgement without seeing a side view.

                                    But I find it very concerning that someone would show horses for sale with three dead foals under a blanket, and pose for facebook pictures with a horse holding his swollen eye shut with discharge all down the side of his face. If that is what she will show the public, what is acceptable when no one is there?

                                    I honestly have no idea how she can afford to keep them all in hay and grain anyway, aren't the prices in California through the roof?

                                    I feel for these horses, they are the ones with no choice but to deal with however it is she cares for them. And when she sells some, it seems she is back up in numbers in a heart beat.

                                          Okay, but I saw a mid-teens stallion being kept at Spruce Meadows, who certainly DO know how to manage breeding stallions and have the gobs of money to do so, and he was in even worse shape than this picture of Federalist. That stallion was a bone rack (easily 300+ pounds underweight) and quite rough after his breeding season. This is not a dump against Spruce Meadows (he had a pile of very nice-looking hay in his stall, but wasn't interested in touching it), nor am I defending Jill Burnell. I'm just saying, at the end of a breeding season, some stallions can look in rough shape - some stallions don't want to eat as much, some spend a goodly portion of their day pacing their fence line and marking. If Spruce Meadows has trouble keeping weight on a breeding stallion who is younger than Federalist, then who is to say what is all going on with Federalist? It's not the first breeding stallion I've seen looking a bit rough at the end of the season, and it probably won't be the last. They usually put on good weight as fall progresses.

                                          By the way, he certainly looks friendly in this photo. What a gentleman.

                                          As for the eye, well, that needs treatment, but again a picture and vague comments do not determine whether treatment is occurring or not. All we can do is speculate but speculation are not facts. Again, not defending her. We just don't know. Even asking her, if she refuses to answer a direct question, it may increase our suspicions, but they are still just that... suspicions.
                                          Practice! Patience! Persistence!
