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!

    Thanks for weighing in. I wasn't sure if you were the "Kathy" referred to in the PM, but I *knew* you wouldn't risk breeding a mare with a nursing foal to an EVA positive stallion.

Had some money, brought over some fancy stallions, and started acquiring mares? She has a fabulous website and either has sold a ton of breedings and horses (priced 10k plus) or done very good lying about it.

          As someone that struggles to find the connections to legitamately sell a couple horses a year, without fraud, how did she manage to con all these people? How did she develop such a huge network, market, and become such a hot commodity? If the fraudulent behaviour was always there, it makes you wonder why it took this long. Or was she on the up-and-up for awhile and then tanked? I remember not that long ago if her name came up on these boards everyone sung her praises. What flicked the switch?

          I'm curious because of the sheer volume of people affected. How did this go on and on and on for so long that the list of victims ended up so long? I would love to be able to market like she DID, and have the flock of people gravitate to me. What was the draw? You have to admit from that standpoint, she marketed well, and obviously knows about horses. It amazes me how far she was able to take it before word started getting around. I wonder what was the catalyst that changed opinion from "she's stellar" to "watch your back" if things had been less than honest the entire time.

          Anyone know more about how she ended up with the fame she had, the good reputation, and the huge client base, before it all started to sink?
          Yowza...not a BN hunter person....track hanger...TBs...I was around in Northern CA when the "Invention" of JB began. First heard from a stallion owner about JB from a stallion owner...SO said she got "stiffed" on a breeding...then the stallion purchase! Redwine bought in partnership...co-owner sued shortly after. She never lived anywhere but the wee farm now foreclosed on. But brilliant marketing...and vicious posse of friends, alters, etc. red flags waving early on but god bless the Internet and great strategy! then more stallions, more mares, and so many enablers along the way! Horse world keeps quiet...who wants trouble? Personal stories of woe only dots not connected! And no one wants to diss those with offspring they love...they didn't know they were dealing with such a misery!

          • Opinions (yes opinion ) vary about the suceptibility of the foal at foot.
            My two vets had no issue with the possibility of breeding a mare with a foal onside with EVA positive semen (frozen in this case) as long as the mare was vaccinated or had the appropriate titer level.

            Their opinon also alligns with what IronSpring Farm has published on their website as to the protocol for breeding to their EVA positive stallion.

            They mention that the foal should be healthy (don't expose an already debilitated foal to a potential respiratory disease-makes sense) and that is it. Vaccinated mare do not need to be isolated for any periode of time after breeding with eva+ semen if their titers have tested high ennough (immune response active I would presume?).

            Iron spring farm site

            Kathy is very clear that she is not willing to take that chance with her foals and she has always been clear on that from her perpective and I know because I talked to her about it way back when I was looking at breeding to Florencio.

            I just wanted to point out that I've heard differently when seeking information from my vet and from Iron Spring Farm.

              This is exactly what I was thinking. I'm just glad Kathy does take the time to get the word out; what a pain-in-the rear to have to deal with this.

                  Yup. And, there are varying opinions about how much coverage a foal receives from its dam.

                  Kathy is very clear that she is not willing to take that chance with her foals and she has always been clear on that from her perpective and I know because I talked to her about it way back when I was looking at breeding to Florencio..
                  Exactly. I have always made it very, very clear that it is NOT a risk I'm willing to take. Others may be. But, I do believe it absolutely must be an informed decision and Jill Burnell's claims that Redwine has a "mild" case of the disease, etc. is NOT providing mare owners with accurate information with which to make that determination. Smoke and mirrors. And indeed, she has advocated in the past, breeding mares without vaccinating at all . Repeatedly. Ad nauseam. "Teller of untruths your pants have combusted" - e.g. Jill !

                  NJ Rider, in answer to your question, mares cannot become carriers of the disease. If an unexposed mare was "exposed" to an EVA positive stallion, you would want to isolate her for the duration of that acute stage. But, after that, she is essentially inoculated for the disease and would subsequently, just need to be boosted to maintain that status. She would not be able to pass the disease on to other horses unless they were exposed to her during that period post breeding - usually it is recommended 4 weeks isolation in those circumstances.

                  • With one piece of a message taken out of context it is a little confusing as to what is being discussed here
                    This message went back 2 1/2 years ago, a month or so before I bred my mare to Redwine. As I said, just came across it now when I was housecleaning my PM's and thought "How interesting". (and this was the entire message from Jill - it wasnt a snippet or only part of the message to me). Even back then it was all about duping the mare owners into believing it was okay AND I thought that Kathy especially would find it "interesting" and ironic, how her name was being dropped into the conversation, as in "If Kathy does it with her mare with a foal at side, it MUST be okay for everyone else to do!"

                    I know - I 100% KNOW without one shred of doubt, that Kathy would never have done that. We've had many conversations in the past on this very subject and I know how deadset she is against breeding to an EVA positive stallion with a foal at side. For all of the reasons she stated up above.

                    I am also glad that once again, within the context of this thread, that Kathy has had the chance to re-iterate her stand on all of this

                    I know that we all owe her a lot for bringing so many issues and misconceptions about EVA to the forefront and has forced certain stallions owners to be a little more honest in their handling and management of their EVA positive stallions and what they say to mare owners ...

                    • You reposted the statements made by JB in that PM without any explaination or context.

                      It could easily have been taken another way.

                      It is a good thing ER does bother to comment to corect such things. But she should not have to do that.

                      • obviously there was some misunderstanding; glad that things have been corrected. there's no need to get all worked up. The PM was quoted in this thread because Jill was obviously LYING about situations involving other people through PM in order to make her sound more reputable. Unfortunately some people misunderstood what was quoted/what was said. Carry on...

The judge loved her and made interesting comments about how Redwine has produced better here in the US than in Germany because he seems to nick really well with American mares. I found it interesting, thought someone here might as well.
                            I find it interesting as well, since "American" WB horses are all of the same lineage as German/Dutch/Danish, etc WB horses. That's where we got them!

                            There is no "American" WB; the only exception would be American TBs, which only 10-15 yrs ago the German inspectors were looking down their nose at. So what changed?

That is not fair to that person.

                                  If you repost mistatements made about somebody else, unqualified and unexplained, you are rolling them forward.

                                      Don't think more "hunter" based as most TB mares of today NOT hunter based per se BUT definitely the TB influence. Forget "hunter" issue...personally think a Rotspon for any discipline needs lightening up. My personal feeling...stress personal...is of short legs, big body and heavy. As for his sons? Well, the one I saw fits that to a tee! Disregarding what DISCIPLINE breeding for? A Great TB mare in my book the best choice! (nod to you LR! Steal your mare in a heartbeat lol).

                                      • Not to deter this thread again now that it has moved on, but I did mean out of context in the conversation, not out of context in the one message.

                                        I guess to the extent it shows that Jill was downplaying EVA in 2010 (or maybe 2009 if it was back when Donna's now 2 1/2 year old filly was conceived??) it can be construed as nefarious.

                                        • Sheila A - it was March 2010 and I was debating breeding one or both of my mares to Redwine. Both would have had foals at side and that was my dilema - was it safe to do so and what precautions did I need to take to ensure the safety of the foals? And one of the foals wouldnt have belonged to me, so that was another wrinkle thrown into the equation

                                          I do believe that I also asked Kathy her opinion which contradicted what Jill had told me, so I PM'd Jill again asking for clarification and this message was her response

                                          So yes - very much downplaying any implication or danger to a foal at the mare's side
