    Default The coth stallion issue is out!!

    I was very surprised to see the Chronicle of the Horse Stallion Issue in my mailbox this evening, along with a so many other things. It is right on time this year!! I'll have to spend some time looking through it but on first glance it seems as if there are a lot of stallions doing the hunter breeding and plenty of usuals are missing!!!

    Is there a jealousy icon??? I'll be surprised to see the stallion issue before Wednesday. Sigh. And I live in VA even! And my laptop is getting a new hard drive so I can't even take that to town and download the issue (there is no way I can download it at the farm - it's really really really slow dial-up out here!). Is there any way to view it online without downloading???

    I agree with Talloaks - lots of hunter/jumper stallions and nothing that really jumps out at you except the Trakehner spread!! Very well done! The rest is a big yawn... in my opinionl

    We boring hunter/jumper people have had to search through tons of dressage stallion ads for years, so to hear it is heavy on the H/J is thrilling!

    To clarify - the number of H/J stallion ads has been on the rise - there were a lot of them last year as well.

    I'm so pleased that I won't be as bored as usual with the stallion issue. Those dressage horses can really make you nod off.

    Sort of kidding but the Hunter/Jumper market is SO much bigger than the dressage market that it makes sense to see more Hunter/Jumper ads.

    A mere 4 pages less than last year. The color seps much better this year than some I can remember. The ATA ad was super designed - congrats to whoever did that one.

    New stallion ads and many updated ones. Lots of hunters ... maybe a few more eventers this year? Now that it has been mentioned, I think - yes - less dressage stallions.

    A nice painting of Rio Grande on the cover and nice article inside. Another article on Live Cover or AI.

    Plenty of nice guys to drool over no matter what your discipline.

    Hope everyone receives their copy soon.

    Default Congratulations.

    Nice to hear some positive remarks. I think Seigi needs to use less salt in her coffee.

    Wonderful to see Rio Grande featured with a beauiful picture, in Canada he had always been in our hearts for a very long time. It was my admiration for him, Radiator and Robinson that persuaded me to buy Raffaello, another son of Raphael.
    We advertised for the first year in the Chronicle of the Horse, with the American Holsteiner Horse Association who are also advertising their Stallion Service Auction for 2008. Our Holsteiner stallion Cotopaxi is donated. News that the issue was out surprised me and prompted me to stay up all night trying to work some bugs out of my website and update with new pictures. Stallion owners really do strive to give you the information you need to make good evaluations.

    Cheers!

    This is the first year I have not advertised in COTH after many years of doing so.

    Many of the "usuals" (with well proven and wonderful, established stallions) have moved on to newer, less controversial venues, understanding that the high price of advertising in COTH's edition is not money is well spent knowing that most mare owners are more interested in the new kids on the block...coupled with the fear of becoming lumped into he "greedy, self promoting stallion owner" conversations that seemed to run rampant on the COTH BB earlier this year.

    Default Just The Best

    I really like Just The Best as a hunter stallion. I have seen several of his offspring and they are all so nice. I have considered breeding to him. Anyone have any experiences? I have a 3 yr old Swedish mare (actually a pic of her is in the Stallion issue for her father). I would like a hunter stallion that can add a bit of size to her and a little less blood. I'm not sure how Best is when it comes to these things...anyone??

    We pulled ours as well and went with Hunter and Sporthorse, Equine Journel. They are much cheaper as well.

    Maybe a mere 4 pages less, but think of the income you WOULD have had if the rest of the regulars would have did ads. Boring Dressage horses or not, that was ALOT of money lost.

    The stallion issue is apparently four pages shorter this year. FOUR PAGES. Big deal. Hardly a huge significant change, or somehow indicitive of the power of the braggarts and banned bb members.

    Some of you think far too highly of yourselves and your imagined power, imho.

    Also has it occured to anyone, a lot of horse people are struggling. The costs of everything from fuel to hay have gone up. People are breeding less. People are dumping broodmares dirt cheap. I am sure THAT had a lot more to do with the stallion issue being a whopping four pages shorter than any ridiculous childish internet power struggle over who gets to brag and where and how much.

    Get over yourselves, some of you.

    I think this year's stallion issue is fabulous, like always.
