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!

    It's against the forum rules to post links from other forums, but there is a thread on Jill Burnell there too.

    http://www.horsegroomingsupplies.com...ll-481679.html

    I think there are many members of both forums here and a few others horse forums as well. As far as I know this thread has been mentioned or directly linked to all of them.

    2 years ago MOST people thought the world of this breeding program. Coth was no different. I bet the majority of her business has come from these two boards alone.

    What ever happened to Rated R, the fifth stallion she purchased? How many horses on the website have never been owned by GFF or stepped foot on her farm? How many people have seen the dams of the foals they purchased. Claiming foals are ET out of mares she has never owned?

    Does anyone here know the farms that purchased the inutero foals? Has anyone tried to contact them? If I owned Poptart and saw her foals advertised for sale on someone elses site - I would have jumped on it a long time ago. How can her picture still be there 2 years later?

    Can someone PM me if you know what happened? thanks.

      Yes, someone has posted an update on that Pop Tart thread directing them here, and to the COTH post where it says the mare never went to GFF.

      Also as far as reading the alarming comments on that thread defending GFF, in all fairness those were written 2 years ago, before the enlightenment.

        • I saw online that Sheila A's 4 year old mare is in foal to Redwine for a 2013 foal....she's leased out to one of Jill's good friends. Perhaps Jill picks and chooses who she stays in contact with? Another mare at the same farm is in foal to him as well. Is Redwine both fresh and frozen?

            First, I think it is absolutely true that Jill picks and chooses who she wants to keep in contact with, do doubt about that. If you want to send her money she will contact you. If you have the ability to drive to her house you likely will get her to follow through on the transaction.

            The mare you are talking about is Spring Fling, aka Flirt. I bought her in utero from Glenhill Farm in 2007. She is the filly I tried to breed to Romantic Star last year. Unfortunately the person who used to foal out my mares for me decided that she is no longer interested in foaling out client mares after she had issues with a foal last year (not one of mine, and nothing of her doing, but involved many trips to a vet clinic) so I cannot breed anything until I find someone who I trust to foal out my mares. That is why this mare went back to her breeder on a breeding lease. She was under saddle for about 4 months and is simply not yet ready for that so she is going to have a foal first and will resume her under saddle career when she comes home next year.

            I do not know if Redwine is offered via frozen. This mare conceived with fresh. I can also tell you that Redwine was not the first choice for her because I had concerns about the EVA issue but she did not get pregnant with frozen from a different stallion and after speaking with a couple of people knowledgeable about EVA I agreed to Redwine. I also know from personal experience that everything at Glenhill is top notch. I have been there several times since I bought this mare in utero 5 years ago and I can assure you, everything is and always has been very clean and sanitary and the horses all receive premium care.

            • Also noticed on her profile on TOB that the last time she was active was on 8/27 so she's definitely reading and probably trying to do damage control where she can!!

                        Awesome, I hope you get a nice foal. I didn't mean anything in regards to Glenhill, just meant that since they are friends that maybe it's easier for her to get semen. That's why I wondered if maybe he did frozen too.

                        Her page is public, so just don't log onto facebook under your name and you can still pull it up and follow along.

                            No argument that Glennhill is a class act.

                              The foal will not be mine as the mare is leased but thank you. I look forward to seeing her foal. Flirt is my heart horse, I will keep her forever

                                  Thank you, Kathryn. That is a different 4-yr old, that one is by Ragtime. She will hopefully be going out on the hunter circuit next year. This is Flirt http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...type=3&theater taken about six weeks ago, and this is pulled off a video the first time she went through a jump chute: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...type=3&theater

                                    She is darling, I love! Good luck with selling the lovely chestnut filly. Barbara had lovely things to say about her.. I was supposed to sit on her one day and we ran out of time. She is gorgeous in person, I bet she does great things on the circuit!

                                        • Oh, that has been the defense from the start. People aren’t upset because this person has been doing many shady things, to many people, oh no no no, we are all just JEALOUS meanies!

                                          You know, I am eventer, and I like TBs and Appaloosas, I MUST be just seething with jealousy over some “show dogs” of the horse world.

                                          No, I just hate cheats and liers. Humm… eagle74 never responded again after I fixed my links. Wonder if they ever went to check the Official Records of Sonoma County which shows a long history of financial issues, and a number of JUDGEMENTS against JB (and no notices were ever recorded that these were paid off… still wide open).
