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!

      You are absolutely right Laurie. As it was Jill's choice create the fiasco she did.

      You are right they will shed no tears over the loss of my business and I'm sure you will shed none either if potential clients find your sudden complacency with this issue a bit odd.

      I find it sad that apparently there is no concern that Jill Burnell is most likely the one receiving monies for Redwine and sad that people I had respect for now say no one has the right to know that information.

      On a side note the question posed to the farm "standing" Redwine was not even about ownership.

        Why are you taking laurie's choice to not "dig" as complacency? I do not see how it is the business of anyone except those who intend to contract for stallion services. That does not equal complacency.

        Why are people assuming that if we do not press for information and demand answers like a five year old, we must think all is well? I no longer own a mare - why would I need any information? Sure, I'm curious, but my curiosity is not a demand for payment in information. What is hindering the understanding that unless you have a reason to "demand" such information, you are merely window shopping for drama?

        I'm plenty curious about many misdeeds in the world, but what ever happened to respecting privacy unless that issue directly impacts you?

        I would not use either stallion when I was looking, and certainly do not have need of either now. I do not have the right to demand information. This does not make me, Laurie or any other person "complacent"; I think we simply don't have an insatiable need to feed our inner drama llamas.

          again your choice to feel that way. i had every intention of doing business with at least two of those stallions, but I will NOT fund Jill Burnell. Insatiable is not a word I find fitting in this situation. Again knowing where my funds would go is a no brainer. That is just such a small thing I am amazed by the confusion and insinuation of other motive.

          • horsenut, let me try explaining one more time:

            IF you are doing business with anyone associated with these two stallions, OF COURSE you have the right to know. NOBODY IS SUGGESTING THAT GIVING JB MONEY IN ANY WAY, FORM, OR FASHION IS A GOOD THING! However, if you are NOT doing business associated with either of these two stallions, I would ask what the motive behind the demand would be.

            Breeding a mare to Redwine or Aloha = right to information regarding ownership

            NOT breeding a mare to Redwine or Aloha = curiosity/feeding inner drama llama

              EINT:

              Please read before posting as I have made very clear why MY involvement and MY reasons for wanting this question answered.

              That said I still believe EVERYONE who invested time, spent money, tears, and donated to the charity in effort to care for horses that came from Jill Burnell's farm DESERVE to know that money paid for breeding fees to Redwine or Aloha will not mean that we are in this same situation a year from now with someone starting an auction to save the horses that Jill was able to keep or buy and is now unable to feed again.

              Does THAT need explaining one more time EYE?

              Comment


              • Would any registry that these stallions belong to have the correct owner, syndication, or lease information? Perhaps an inquiry to them might provide it? Just like an astute mare owner might call to confirm liscening, approval, etc. status.
                The virtual "woodshed" seems the only remedy for willful fools .

                Comment


                • Boy, horsenut, you certainly ascribe a lot of motive to my posts. Eye In The Sky has it EXACTLY right. My point, which you so adamantly refuse to understand, is that the new owners are under NO OBLIGATION to come on a public BB such as this feeding frenzy and explain themselves to ANYONE. IF you are contemplating breeding to the stallions, then call them directly and ask them. But quit demanding to know HERE. Why in the world would they do that to a bunch of people, .01% of whom have any interest in actually breeding to the stallions OR have any investment in the drama at all.

                  And don't call me complacent about anything. I have a respect for a person's right to do business without announcing the details to the world. Nor is it "sudden." I have maintained this stance for, oh, well, forever.

                    So you have a respect for Jill Burnell's right to do business by her stallions "standing" at Ashland Farm. You have made yourself crystal clear Laurie.

                    And get off your stool. When people CAN NOT get the answers they are looking for yes some of them come here to COTH. Go post on the thread about dues not being paid or something, but I will never agree that asking where breeding fees are going to is a WRONG THING. Never.

                    • Where the HELL do you get that I am OK with what you just posted? Are you delusional? I am not even talking about JILL. I am TALKING about the new owner or manager (YOU don't know, nor do I, what the relationship is, if any) having the right to be discreet about the transaction. I said if you want to know, ASK THEM!! But don't expect them to come here, to be treated the way anyone gets treated here if they don't follow the party line. You really need some help with reading comprehension. When I am speaking about Jill, you will know it.

                        Laurie maybe YOU should back off since you and Junior were all ABOUT Jill a few years ago and certainly have not been disinterested parties. Let those who would like to know facts from folks who didn't tie themself up in business deals with JB figure this out for themselves. My suggestion is that YOU step away from the keyboard on all things dealing with JB - I know it may be tough but some of us have long memories and Internet memories - I think it would be best for you to distance yourself from the whole deal. I know others who have had business dealings have done just that. Personally I don't have any invested interest in who owns RW - never interested me personally as a stallion and if JB has managed to hoodwink another quasi owner - so be it. Aloha? Hmm, gelding comes to mind. But you keep saying there has been a slaughter fest here - REALLY? Of a crook who also didn't take care of those in her care? REALLY - I think maybe you are overly defensive given history with JB. Enough all ready

                        • I don't think anyone is expecting Ashland Farms to come here on Coth to announce whether, yes or not, they own RW now. They do have a website and a FB page. Nothing prevents them from doing so there. Except, in my opinion, their silence is VERY telling. IF they owned RW, I think they would claim it loud and clear. The fact that they do not say so... they don't own him and they know that many people do not like the association with Jill B. So keep people guessing and try to entice some MOs to breed to him.
                          I thought they were ethical... I guess everyone has a different definition of "ethical".
                          I don't care really, just feel bad that some money would still go back to Jill. I don't even like RW.

                            Laurie I believe you are a smart woman, but are choosing the wrong battle for some reason. You know as well as I do that that the majority of us believe Jill still owns Redwine. Ashland has NEVER publicly claimed ownership of him, simply state that they are standing him. You claim it is not the world's right to know this information. So why post that they are standing him if they are so private? Do you see where I am going,,,So yes until proven otherwise he is considered Jill's property. That is really not so difficult and most certainly is not a problem with my comprehension.

                            • There is something to be said for acting discretely and professionally, did it ever occur to any of you that when you post on this forum you are representing your businesses? All the name calling and finger pointing is really unprofessional, I am so glad that many of you have posted your farms' names and websites so I know never to work with you. I made a polite request to Ashland Farms last week and they gave me a respectful and timely response. The issue was in regards to this whole debacle and they did as I asked without question. Maybe if people weren't acting like a bunch of jack a$$es you would get the answers you are looking for.

                                • Laurie, your inbox is full

                                  I know many folks on and off this BB that were just as in the dark as many of us a few years were regarding JB that had foals by Redwine. Of course they would be supportive of JB - without the pictures, many of us were uncertain what was happening, except many of us were starting to think it was a really bad idea to send mares to JB.

                                  Please do not be so obtuse as to think that Laurie is ok with the information that has been uncovered regarding JB. I've never been slighted by JB personally, but I am still disgusted by what she pretended to be while creating a redneck wonderland out of a house and land! If I, someone who had never had any dealings feel this way about the woman, how do you think those whose trust was betrayed by that woman feel??!!

                                  Just because some of us have a different belief of how recent events have transpired does not mean we are in any way shape or form in support of JB! I'm fairly certain that most of us do not feel comfortable with the idea of JB receiving any financial compensation for Redwine or Aloha's stud fees. This is why we have been repetitively saying anybody who has a true intent to breed to either stallion, speak with the barn owners/trainers/managers regarding the specifics.

                                        I hate to say it, but the fact that Ashland wouldn't confirm they owned him sure pointed to his continued ownership by JillB. And I am not surprised - he is her big moneymaker, and she isn't going to let him go easily. (I had heard through the grapevine she told someone who inquired about purchasing him last year that she wanted 500K for him. Yeah, right...)

                                        • Well I am still glad that the boys are no longer standing in muddy pens and getting lose / into fights.

                                          But bummed that Jill Burnell will still be making money off of them – while there are so many she has scammed and victimized.

                                          I really hope that people stop funding her activities.
