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!

    • Yes, rig = cryptorchid

      But the stallion TC mentions sounds like he had a LOT more reason to be gelded than being a rig. Sure sounds like he should never been intact to begin with.

      • Kenike - he was pretty "usual" for a race stallion that lived his life in segregation and only saw mares when he was expected to jump up on their backs and breed them. The set up at our barn was unlike anything else he had been exposed to, I think - mare across from him in a foaling stall, mares and geldings being led by him in the aisleway - he really needed to decompress in a big way

        He was a decent race stallion - winner of $86,000 before he bowed and retired and he sired many winners in the $50,000 - $100,00 range, 2 in the $150,000 earnings and his top earner was $266,000 so he wasnt a bust by any means I just dont think with what the farm was charging to keep and stand him he was getting enough mares to him for him to pay his way let alone give a ROI to his owner

          Quite the inside track on what JB is up to LP - again think your involvement makes you less than a disinterested party. Seems you have personal contact with what JB intends?

          JB owes a lot of money to many people - and given her miserable horse environment and bad debts and horse care leading to seizure of some of her horses? I hope the sale of Aloha who "she was on the fence about" since she didn't pay for his stallion inspection and who sadly is not that profoundly talented? I hope the "sale" went to pay of her BILLS and to help MCHS who have had to pay to help the sad cases they found on her "farm" - as for RW? IR and EVA positive - what do you all think caused the latter condition? Whatever - sad sad sad

          • I do not understand all this "they have to make an announcement" !

            Come on: the two stallions are at a good place, well kept for. They are no where in hiding for those who would want to claim them for unpaid bills (Yes convienently across the border, but known place).

            Everyone who wants to know for sure before breeding to them about the status of ownership can wait until it is declared. If not, well just make you decision against it. But I really do not understand why people think it is their right to know details of a business relation ship and a deal between tow people that they do not even know. I agree that sort of information is interesting, but no one has a right to get it, unless you have a claim against Jill.
            If you do not get thids info - just do not give any party you think is involved business. Nothing as easdy as that.
            If I would start thinking about who own which stallion or not in Germany and ask for ownership infp, I could long wait and honestly if I do not get it , I just do not use a stallion of that station. Know a station that likes not to pay what they buy. So from my side certainly no business towards them. Easy enough, and I do not go on the internet and demand they should give an official statement why they did not pay horse A, B or C that they bought at an auction.
            People: get real !
            I appreciate that the stalllions seem to be in good hands carewise and I wonder what is going on with the others still at the farm. Maybe people on this board could use their time to help the other horses or towards those that were cheated in the past. ...

              • 3dogs, get over yourself. As I have said MANY times, I haven't spoken to Jill since July. My comments are based on previous conversations and nothing else. I am sick of your innuendo and accusations when you are no friend, confidant or anything else to us and have absolutely NO knowledge of any of our business. Anyone thinking that this person has any clue at all to our former business with Jill - she doesn't. Not at all. She is a pot stirrer extraordinaire.

                  Many people on this board have done just that.

                  The questions regarding ownership are legitimate. Some people would breed to those stallions, but only if Jill Burnell was no longer involved with them in any manner. They want to know , very simply, if Jill Burnell owns and will profit from breedings to either of those stallions.

                  • Seriously 3dogs, your agenda is getting in the way of common sense. I wouldn't know Jill from john, have zero interest in sparkly black stallions, and yet that was exactly my suspicion (with exactly zero inside knowledge). We could be wrong, but Vegas wouldn't give us long odds on that bet if Vegas came with more than one neural synapse. And it usually does.
                    Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.

                      I understand and I think aswell that the questions are o.k. to ask, but what in my opinion is not right is that people think they have a right of knowing. They think that the owners owe them this information.
                      I think yes interesting and important information. I also agree for a lot of people the basis of making a decision towards breeding to these two or even other stallions of that station. But I think it is not like "They have to tell" "I have the right to know" that some people post.

                        I've always thought a rig was a gelding with one undescended testicle. That is, a gelding acting very "stalliony" because he's actually got one undescended testicle instead of having "nothing."

                          My understanding has always been that a rig was any male horse with an undescended testicle - didn't matter if he had been "gelded" or not.

                          As for it being considered genetic - that has always been my understanding also, and the reason dog show judges check for both testicles in male dogs. I also believe some horse breed associations do not allow it - most of the warmblood registries will not approve a stallion with only one testicle, and in fact, some colts get spun out in the stallion selections because they have one that likes to "hide".

                          • And regarding the Redwine situation - it appears from comments made here and elsewhere that Ashland is leasing him. But I doubt very seriously JillB is paying one cent for board or upkeep, and if the principals at Ashland were smart, they would not be paying JillB one cent for his lease. My guess is that Ashland is paying all the expenses, and either splitting the income from breeding fees, or, again, if they were smart, keeping all that income themselves. But JillB probably gets as many free breedings as she wants - it will be interesting to see in a couple of years how many foals end up in the USEF database that were born in 2014, sired by Redwine, and bred by JillB/Gray Fox Farm.

                              Technically you are correct. But as so many have pointed out there has been an outpouring of care and concern directed towards this particular situation, close to 30k earned at the auction. Why on earth would you think people are not going to want to know where there funds are going to? It would be ridiculous not to! (for those who would like to breed to RW anyway)

                                    • And here's an interesting observation! As soon as everyone knew the answer to the question, "Do they own him?" you hear nothing but crickets.... No posts since yesterday.

                                      So there you have it. All people wanted was transparency. And now people can go about making their breeding decisions with information in hand. Problem solved. I think at the end of the day everyone understands that whether someone buys Redwine or leases him, or leases him and then buys him, at some point some cash is going to head in Jill's direction. But at least this way we can all agree the stallions are in better care and better management, and with any luck the Morgans will buy Redwine outright eventually so he'll have a good long-term home.

                                      • I'm the one that posted on the Redwine FB page stating that Jill still owned Redwine. That sparked the "We are leasing but working on buying" comment. I asked after that post if Jill was getting any money, and both my posts got deleted. My opinion is that if they want to stand the stallion, they should be willing to answer these questions. Didn't they know this was coming?!
