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 have wondered since day one if I got the right semen but whatever was in there did a good job so I think that is a question better left unanswered.

        What options exist for DNA testing? Does anyone know? I have one in the oven and would like to know for certain once baby arrives. I know it shouldn't really matter as the foal is for keeping...but I'd still like to know.

          Yes it is, which is also classed as a Mental Illness Disorder, but it is usually strongly interlinked with another mental illnesses. Usually, hoarding begins as a result of a distressing trauma - such as a serious disruption to a financial way of life, loss of a job, loss of a loved one. It is quite often the severe, unmitigated grief reaction to a loss of something held dear to the person and the loss is different for each person. As the reaction goes unchecked and not dealt with on a personal level, it progresses and sometimes develops into what we all call hoarding. It usually doesn't just suddenly happen. Hoarding creeps up on the person as their life spins out of control and they are helpless to stop it. Truly, they feel out of control and thus hang onto whatever they CAN control - their stuff. Piles of stuff. Right now, to use the pictures we got at the beginning of this thread, her life is messy and out of control. There is still considerable hope to get things back under control and life organized because the hoarding isn't up to the roof yet. But, as the hoarding and uncleanliness builds, chances of successful treatment or recovery diminish each passing year. Eventually, as severity progresses (and it will always progress), it tracks into other aspects - in this case, to the care of the outside animals, maintenance and upkeep of the farm, inability to pay attention to financial matters and eventually winds its way into the legal system. The further the situation progresses, the dimmer the chances of recovery become. Another way of putting it, every single other thing that becomes necessary to be dealt with, they just can't deal with it. They can't pay that bill because they feel the need to hoard their cash due to their extreme fear to lose their money. They are, in essence, shutting down and walling themself off trying to protect themselves from yet another trauma or loss or event. Which doesn't work, because they usually self-perpetuate further losses and it becomes a revolving door.
          At this point in time I can't help but be concerned for the ELDERLY PARENTS who were living there.
          This is not a case of an agoraphobic, solitary hoarder who is unable to function in society. I tend to agree with 3Dogs.
          Yvonne , best wishes to you.

              Holy cow! What a horrible mental illness it is! My aunt's ex daughter-in-law was a hoarder, too. She found a way to please herself by going on a shopping spree. Most of her purchases were found all stacked up everywhere in the house. They were inside boxes or bags with the price tag still attached! But this shocked me a whole lot more b/c of those poor animals! I hope all the animals are somewhere safe and receiving lots of TLC beyond JB's reach.

              My hat is off to Yvonne for being so upfront with all of us. Best of luck with everything and don't forget to take care of yourself, too.

                Ya, she probably does. I bred my mare to Romantic Star in march of 2011; before I had a clue what a cluster this all was. She took but lost it late term. DH used to say that "a mule is gonna pop outta there...", because I knew there was some shadiness going on out there...

                  This is unreal. I bought a breeding to Redwine years ago, before it was out all over the place what a problem she was. I finally tried to use it this year - Jill was very responsive when I needed semen but when my mare didn't take after 4 tries (admittedly, could have been the mare) and I started asking about putting the stud fee towards buying one of her foals or a mare already in foal to Redwine, Jill went 'dark'. I never got any response, despite several attempts. It's unfortunate bc she was very helpful when I was sending her money for collections but once I decided to go another route, nothing.

                  I think Jill is obviously suffering from some sort of mental illness based on the state of her property. That is sad and frightening that there were so many horses and elderly people there. I've long given up on every seeing my stud fee again, but I sincerely hope she downsizes Greatly and gets the help she needs.

                    ... but Laurie's lovely filly is being shown in hunter breeding classes.
                    Rather important to be sure of the sire, or were you speaking of a different horse, Laurie?

                      Isn't parentage verified via DNA for registration either prior to inspection or at inspection?

                        Nope. I couldn't believe it since I am used to JC rules. My filly looks like a Redwine for the most part so most likely is but she has similar looking stallions so it isn't a given especially when you know how shady the whole operation is. I can see no benefit to opening that can of worms now however. She is who she is.

                              She is already here. I can't change her dna now regardless. Not to mention, I didn't make the rules, I just followed them every single step of the way. All I can do is not make the same mistake of trusting someone who is completely untrustworthy in the future. Hindsight is everything and every single person who has a foal from one of her stallions that didn't have dna verified has to have a question mark in the back of their head.

                                  I understand that. None of this is your fault, but won't her show record have some influence on people who want to breed their mares to her sire?

                                  What if you decide to breed her? Sell the foal?

                                    I'm sorry Laurie, but I beg to differ. Personally, I would want to know, but that's just how I am. And perhaps, if you had a gelding, it wouldn't be a big deal...no possible repercussions on future generations. But, yours is a filly and even if you plan to keep her forever (and I don't know your plans).

                                    Redwine's DNA should be on file and it's simply a matter of ordering a DNA kit and submitting it. Should cost about $75...double if you need to do the mare, though if you are only interested in confirming the sire, that may not be necessary.

                                    Further, I believe that if Redwine is going to be "credited" with any of your filly's success, then if there is any doubt in your mind, it should be confirmed.

                                    JMHO for what it's worth.

                                      I have no reason to believe she may not be who she is supposed to be except for the fact that the SO is a criminal/lunatic. If the information provided was good enough for the registry that has to be good enough for me.

                                        This is truly disturbing. I have conducted business with JB for almost three years and have had no troubles until the last few months. I have read negative posts but never knew if the "truth" was being told. It is very hard in this business to separate fact from fiction. We all know now that it is fact. My heart is breaking for all of these poor horses and the family members. I never visited her farm...just saw pictures and videos of youngsters which all looked as if they were taken very good care of. I guess I need to be thankful for the lovely offspring I own that were produced by her stallions especially Arbor Day. I am owed a decent sum of money by JB and for the past few months have not been able to get the problem resolved...and it obviously isnt looking to good now...

                                        • We had good dealings with her in the beginning, too, but when she owed us money is when she began to spread rumors. She is sneaky about how she does this ... she sends PMs and emails, via her blog, and posting as alters. It has been her MO for years and so many people have been burned (more than just financially). I am so sorry that you are having to deal with this now. Hopefully, now that people are aware, this behavior will be deterred.
