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!

  • And didn't Redwine win ribbons in the first years at WEF? So he couldn't have totally sucked at 3'6". Maybe he's not a 4' horse, but to call him a 3' horse "at best" seems unfair. Humble opinion from an admitted bling-lover, though.

    • Can I ask a stupid question? I've been trying to keep up with this thread, and I am truly afraid I might have missed an important detail...but...
      Where is all the money Jill has been paid throughout the last year (or more) for stud fees? If she has already foreclosed on her house and is bouncing checks left and right, where is the money I assume she has received from mare owners? Is this a situation of her having mishandled her income, or is that merely scratching at the surface of a monumental financial issue that I fail to comprehend?

      Sorry to interrupt the current flow here, but I've been scratching my (blonde) head over this for a while now.

        He also has a good enough mind to have gone from 3' pre-green to first years in a matter of weeks, which is too fast but I believe they were trying to prove a point in a limited amount of time.

        • My guess is the money is in the bathtub with the chickens. Seriously, as someone who has cared for horses professionally for twenty years, it costs a fortune to do it right. It costs a small fortune to do it half assed enough to keep them alive. I doubt she is stuffing the mattress with cash.

            She's buying new mares and new property.... Wouldn't be high on my list of priorities if I had outstanding debt and lots of mouths to feed but I don't suppose Jill Burnell consults with Suzie Ormond for the "Can I afford it" advice. (wouldn't that be an interesting segment if she did though)

              • Summit Springs, how old is your horse? Was he sired before Redwine went to GFF?

                Comment


                • SS, congrats on Redford's success! It is nice to know Redwine does have at least one offspring out there competing successfully in the performance ring. He currently has close to 60 offspring listed with USEF, so it will be interesting to see how they fare as a group in performance.

                    It would appear that is the case. From USEF:
                    REDFORD (5177288)
                    Foal Date: 3/1/2005
                    Breed: MECKLENBURG
                    Color: Bay Sex: G
                    Sire: REDWINE
                    Dam: TAMEIBLUETE

                    Mecklenburg is a small registry in the far NW part of Germany. I believe Redwine was standing at the state stud there (Redefin) when he was discovered by Linda Woltz for JB/GFF. Since Mecklenburg does not operate in the U.S., it is a sure bet Redford was bred in Germany, where he was registered under the name Re Match. Here is his pedigree on HorseTelex. http://www.horsetelex.com/horses/pedigree/526791 .

                    Edited to correct info regarding Redford fka Re Match.

                      Don't hold your breath waiting for that to happen. Lots could be winning, or not. I am still shocked at how many people "lose" their horse's history, and Redwine's offspring may have further reason - to not get drawn into any problems.

                          Why would anyone do that if they bred or bought horses sired by Redwine that are free and clear? Those horses are not going to be encumbered by Jill's pproblems, if they can do their jobs.

                          More concerning is that they get the CHANCE to make it as hunters. We see too many people buy that cute foal, then not know what to do with them at riding age. And unable or unwilling to have someone do it for them.

                          • First Jill Burnell of Gray Fox Farm's suspected and proven unethical , and illegal business practices should not have to be carried by her stallions other then peoples (rightly so) unwillingness to use them while they are still belonging to or being represented by she.

                            Those stallions(Redwine and Aloha) will have enough burden/weight to carry proving that they are more then feed and lead stallions in the years to come. One horse getting a circuit championship (congrats to his owners) does not make him PROVEN, Redwine and his offspring are going to have to survive his owners indiscretion and a the performance ring. Time will sort at least that half of the mess out. We know Romantic Star can perform and his offspring.. he just needs a new owner.

                            There are a few other Rotspon offspring doing fairly well in the hunters; Rapunzel comes to mind right off . Conversely as far as I'm concerned all that tells me is if I like the type SKIP Redwine all together and breed to Rotspon a proven sire with NO EVA/Jill B. issues. Although more widely accepted as a dressage horse sire he did score fairly well in jumping placing 7th out of 38 at his stallion test for jumping, 1st in dressage and 1st overall. His damn sire is Argentan of course sire of Argentinus so there is the blood to have some jump.

                              You are right, I was posting too fast and overlooked the fact that Redford and Re Match had the same YOB.

                              I corrected my earlier post to clarify that Redford and Re Match are the same horse.

                              • Yes rematch is Redford and he was born in Germany and we imported him two years ago this November.
                                When we were looking at him, we really did not even consider his breeding, in fact I think we bought him before I clued into the fact he was by JB's Redwine. I probably didn't even know the stallion was standing in the US and owned by JB.

                                We bought him on his merits since he was to be and is my adult hunter. We love him. Thank you for the kind words.
                                Also I asked JB to take down the pictures and I never heard back from her, but I have the website designed name to contact.

                                • What division is ReMatch shown in? The adult hunters? And I believe Jill was going through the Redwine partnership battle in 08, if I am correct.

                                  • Sounds like if everyone who has mares and foals on the gray fox website that shouldn't be on there, if they were removed she would have a much smaller website.

                                    I find it hard to believe that every mare she has on her website and every mare that she mentions she actually owns or leases legitimately.

                                    Problem with the internet is you can say pretty much anything until you get caught!

                                    (funny commercial with women who believed everything on the Internet and has a date with a "French model" that looks like lurch with a fanny pack comes to mind)

                                    • Could the people with "stolen" pictures/Copy right infringements be included in the group of potential victims? Might help in putting together the class action suit. Just a thought.

                                        Looks like it is actually Linda Mendenhall that discovered him, but I also recall JB saying on this board he was bought in an auction, so I am not sure what is correct.
