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!

    After 30yrs in WB breeding... I find it necessary from time to time to set the record straight regarding horses I bred/owned for those claiming casually "my" in reference to a horse.

Just sayin' this in general.

    Pace... I very relieved to hear Rioja is on the mend. Good Luck with him; you made a wise investment ..he hails from some of the finest horses I had the pleasure of breeding/owning.

    If you want addtional info from the Source. I bred Grande Saber X Grundstein out of my good mare Can't Act. He was never sold. I traded a WB daughter of THE Roemer KWPN for the TB mare, Grand Affair's dam, to produce this test foal for Saber. As the breeder who birthed the mare Grand Affair and I care about her deeply. Just contact me Tellwynd@aol.com

    FYI : Regarding MY photos. My photos used in GFF & JB sites are NOT used with permission. I gave permission for the year of 2010 to secure my breeding certificate for my Romantic Star colt. Jill had & has been using my copyright protected photos without my permission. She was served with notice and evidently .. Took no notice.

    GA is one of the mares I worry the most about. Sadly it is clear that JB knows what a gold mine she has in her .. I just hope she treats her accordingly. Though I strongly doubt that ..there were some photos that have seemed to have disappeared that were of GA and this foal where she was looking terribly ribby and rough.

    • [QUOTE=dianehalpin;6520626]My filly, the one that I had so much trouble getting GOV papers on - the trouble being Jill and not at all GOV where great effort on that registry's part did help me get papers, came to me after weaning with a huge distended belly and very small. She's fine now and healthy but still very small, which is why I posted her current height.

      FACT: Rioja arrived the same as your filly. Huge distended belly and in my case under weight (Ribs showing). I contributed his weight to a extraordnary long trip to me across the country. Yet when after 2 months he failed to gain weight or to thrive I had my vet pull blood and do a fecal count. Blood report came back with low muscle emzymes and he was riddled with round worms (thus why his muscle was so poor) ... my vet was stunned at how high the count was. "No wonder" she said you have been unable to make him thrive. Depsite that I had wormed him regularly it was not enough to even touch his fecal count. The fecal count came 2 weeks after his last worming. We ended up having to agressivley worm him with rotations of wormers targeting round worms. I would say it was not until the last 2 months that he has put on appropriate weight and muscle.

      In Jills defense and in trying to be factual. Jill did tell me to double dose him with safe guard once he got to me (which I did). I called her to let her know about his condition and his fecal count. She was surprised but commented that she too has some of the foals that fit his discription. When I told her that Strongid seemed to be more effective than Safe guard .. she thanked me for the info and said she was going to try that on her few foals that seemed to be having the same issues.

      I do think in some ways Jill tried (tries) to do the right thing. She clearly .... and I think we all can agree .... knows how to breed lovely horses. My sense ... things spun and are spinning out of control. Too many horses, too many stallions, too many clients, bad judgement etc. plus whatever personal issues she may have has lead her down a path of self distruction. Again .. I am sad for the whole situation.

        Oh Joan ... how lovely to be in touch! Grand Affair is a legend ... the most lovely mare!! I am honored to have one of her babies and was so excited when I contracted her for her 2011 foal. I bought her 2011 foal before he was even concieved . I will email you about his history as I think it will interest you. I am trying to be cautious in my airing of information regarding my dealings with JB. In fairness to both her and my foal. Facts are what is important and I do not want my facts to be muddled with assumption or speculation. I will also send you some more pictures of him. Thank you for posting. By the way ... I hope you have seen her filly of this year ... absolutely beautiful!

        • If a weanling has that much of a worm load then the mares are infested too. She is not following proper deworming protocal, plus roundworms thrive in the ground and grass.
          She has no grass! Which means they are getting it form eating each others stool.
          Roundworm infestation can cause young horses to look unthrifty with poor hair coats and/or slow growth and gain or show upper respiratory symptoms such as nasal discharge and coughing as larvae migrate throughout the lungs and trachea. In turn swallowing the larvae and re-infesting themselves.

          In all my life of having horses I have never had a worm issue with them or with my babies.

            FACT: Rioja was fecal count tested 2 weeks after having been wormed with safeguard. Had been double dosed upon arrival to me and had one rotation of quest in between.

            Clincally insignificant is 250 eggs per gram and under ...

            Riojas fecal count even after the above rotation was
            500 eggs per gram.

            • VICTOOOORRRYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!! I just finished reading this entire thread. It's taken me a week of off-and-on reading.

              As a side note, this thread is definitely doing its duty in informing the public. Last weekend I was secretarying a large dressage show and I have to say that, "Have you seen the thread on the COTH forum about JB" was a hot topic.

              So people are certainly hearing about it!

              • From the Canadian law enforcement person in response to the person questioning his credibility

                "the advice given by the Alberta poster may be correct in her area. RCMP are the federal police but they also do provincial and municipal contract policing in many small communities. In Ontario the Ontario Provincial Police police the province and also contract police to many small communities.

                Large cities and even small towns have their own forces. All of them investigate frauds. They may pass a file to the RCMP in the case of international frauds. They may not. When I say frauds, I mean those perpetrated on individuals or companies.


                Fraudulent certificates on the other hand would be a fraud perpetrated on the federal government and would likely be handled by the RCMP, or the CBSA (border) or CFIA (health) or jointly. I did not deal with a CFIA vet on my own pickup, only a regular CBSA officer.


                If the Alberta poster would like to contact me by email, please forward it and I will reassure her/him on my authenticity.


                I have in my career, had my property damaged, found a stranger at my front yard chatting up my children and when I approached state "cute kids you got, Officer" before walking away. And, I don't want people using my horses for target practice."

                    • Effects: Most damage occurs as roundworms migrate through the body. They cause coughing, pneumonia, liver damage, diarrhea, and colic. Large numbers of adult roundworms can cause intestinal blockage or rupture. Other signs include unthriftiness, pot belly, rough hair coat, and slow growth.


                      Many times the horse will never recover, ulcers, colic, constant problems.

                      • I think I recall reading somewhere that before JB became a stallion owner, there were multiple outside stallion owners that she never paid for breedings. Can anyone confirm? Just wondering how many babies may have been produced with "stolen" semen.

                        Comment


                        • Pace thank you for taking good care of the Saber legacy baby!!! I am horrified to discover how he arrived to you home.


                          While Jill has bred some good foals ....Not so fast with the credit for the GFF sires to Grande Saber mares..


                          Grand Affair was first bred to Redwine by Jill Johnson of Hunter's Peak. She is the breeder of 2010 colt named Rainboots JB replicated the breeding to produce two more full siblings out of GA .

                          With ALL due respect, the reason Grand Affair has a place in HB history is solely due to Jill Johnson. Jill found her before she was three months old and bought her. Grand Affair was my test "Hunter baby" for Grande Saber. Jill managed both her HB career and her life as one of the most celebrated Broodmares in the Country.

                          I bred Grande Divina to Aloha. and despite the GFF site claiming to be breeder of Accessorized..... I bred both Grande Divina and her 2010 filly Accessorized.

                          I asked JB to clearly publish me as breeder for Grand Affair, her full sis Grande Divina and her 2010 filly Accessorized

                          FACT - That's two babies GFF claimed to breed when they clearly didn't . ...which is FRAUD.

                                  Spectrum, your post made me laugh. I've not posted but I've followed from the beginning, checking at least once a day to stay on top of the posts. I'm so glad I did! This is an extremely interesting and informative thread on many fronts.

                                    • The GFF website says 3 foals were due on August 7:
                                      Redwine x Grand Affaire
                                      Redwine x Likide
                                      Redwine x Lucky Karma

                                      Anyone know if these babies have arrived ? Two are spoken for as they were sold inutero.

                                        But several of her stallions would be accepted through the BWP's outside stallion provision. I almost went down that route with a custom ET foal for someone. So glad that we wised up before we made that mistake.... Though honestly it was the BWPs slow response time that deterred me, well before I knew about the Jill Burnell fiasco!

                                        As far as I know none of her stallions are approved with any of the Belgian registries, however they could be used within the registries if the breeder wants to pay the outside stallion fees.
