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!

  • OH wow

    THe name kept ringing a bell, I think I used to have her as a friend on facebook. Very sad situation.

    Comment


    • I probably shouldn't have said anything. I am from TB land, not to mention I DID have a mare bred to the wrong stallion once live cover. If mistakes like that can be made when the horse is right there in front of you, it is hard to trust a box. The idea of not doing DNA concerned me the minute I found out that wasn't a requirement due to my past experience. Sort of like all those women on Maury who are sure the guy is the father. They still want to see what is inside the envelope.

      • Oh boy...I have known Jill for many years, we rode together as kids. Even before all this she was selling TB's as "Canadian" WBs. I have been in that house, it was 3 yrs ago and not quite that bad...yet. Her lab is in the kitchen. A couiple stallions are in back paddocks with no shelters. I have seen Romantic Star standing in mud up to his fetlocks in the pouring rain with no cover or blanket. I have seen the babies out in the dry lot pasture in a rain storm shaking and soaked. They were 2 months old. When I was a vet tech, we would go in her barn to see the babies and it smelled sooooo bad of urine soaked bedding. The stalls got cleaned maybe once a week. My boss (Dr) was shocked. He told her that for the sake of thier lungs she better get the stalls cleaned. I knew this time would come.... and Craig Fury really is her brother. Her parents are wonderful people. Crap.

        • Dear God... her poor pets and family. And makes me sick to hear about poor Romantic Star and those foals. All this money she is bringing in from sales of foals and stud fees (yes, I know it is expensive and she may not be breaking even but let's get real... she doesn't pay her bills anyway so not like it matters) and no shelter or blankets for her horses, no clean home for her pets and elderly parents.

          Sorry she can hoard all she wants solo with no animals, but ungodly selfish and cruel in this situation.

            • I have seen this coming for a long time. She was never a close friend, but I do have a lovely Redwine filly thanks to her. I actually helped collect him too. It is a shame to see this happen and worse is that people still support her and buy from her. Granted the babies are very nice, but the shallowness of people to just have a nice horse needs to stop. Jill should not be allowed to continue breeding. All her pictures are taken in front of a section of nice fencing on a small plot of green grass, or in front of the neighbors place. What a sham! The mares are just "walking uterus's" as Jill herself once said. (and I have a witness to that, so she can't sue me for defamation of character"!

              Comment


              • This is a really sad situation. I have been thankfully warned by many not to deal with her even though I do like some of her stallions and what they are producing. Cudos to you Yvonne for taking in your in-laws and rescuing them. I hope she gets the help she obviously needs.

                Comment


                • Wow. And Jill just keeps sailing along... continuing with her evil ways... ripping people off... will she EVER pay for her sins? In my experience the Humane Society/SPCA in California is close to being worthless.

                  Comment


                  • Urciegirl, you are right. For as many times as they have been out there, as long as the horses look well fed they do nothing. And she keeps telling them she will put up shelters and never does. They dont even have a tree or anything. Really sad to know that she is/was an RN! She took care of people at one time!

                      Honestly? Humane Society? SPCA? Her elderly PARENTS were living in that house.

                            But it doesn't concern you now, and you don't want to see what is inside the envelope?

                            • IIRC, Old NA/ISR does not require DNA on foals resulting from fresh semen breedings. I cannot imagine why. Perhaps they should look into a policy change?

                              Also, I know she didn't keep the stallion dues paid up to the registries before? Did she activate them and pay this year? I wonder how all these foals born this year are going to be registered? A nightmare of a situation.

                              • has anyone put this on other forums? It is time for this to come to light, and now that her brother and sister in law have so bravely come forward, now is the time. Your average mare owner will have no way of knowing any of this unless the word is spread far and wide...

                                • So we know she has an active FB and even the likes of Brandon Gibson are on there recently begging for her to respond to them. You know THEE Brandon Gibson that handled her filly to a win at Devon.

                                  Why are those photos not posted on her FB page for the rest of her unsuspecting clients to see ?

                                    • She has my mare Diamonette, purchased from Irish Hills Farm, who is now 19 years old, I would love to see her come home.... but would not even know where to begin to get her home. This just sickens me.

                                        My reasons for posting this are as follows. I know that you love your horses, and have a huge investment in them. I also know that many of you purchase semen from her. I have included a link to photos I took in her house, and of the "lab" where she prepares the semen product to send out to you.

                                        My understanding is that anything that goes into your horses bodies should be prepared in a clean enviroment, if not a STERILE enviroment. You will see the area is cluttered with rotting food, dirty household items, and dog feces. There isn't a clear place to step in the house where there isn't a pile of garbage or feces. This is where she has been preparing the product for you to inseminate your beloved horses. Apparently, she has been raising chickens to sell as well, and had them in a bathroom not 20 or 25 feet from the "lab". The bathtub had DEAD chickens in it. It just added to the horrible smell of the house, as well as potential for disease.

                                        She let the property forclose (no loss to her, as her parents sold THEIR home to get this one with Jill) and has another property now. There are NO barns, and NO shelters of any kind for the horses. I have seen first hand how she "takes care" of these poor horses. In the winter, they are left to stand in the rain and frost and heavy winds with no protection whatsoever. Animal control has been to her place many times because of complaints by neighbors.

                                        This woman has no compassion for animals, no scruples, and no conscience. I only hope she hasn't sickened any of your horses thus far. As soon as I can, I will post photos of her new property.
                                        Thank you for taking the time to read this.
                                        How awful.

                                        • I reported her page to FB - as a scam. I also informed FB that she has an outstanding warrant. MAYBE they will do something about it.

                                          Also, what do you guys think about starting a FB page AGAINST her and let people know what they might be getting into? I'd be willing to start it. If we can combat her excellent FB presence it might make more of a difference so noone else gets screwed.
