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!

    Hi Emily! That's really neat! Do you ride Waldheer too? He looks very versatile and fun to ride! Do they still have Noblesse? I have always loved that mare and wished that I could own her.

Not sure if they'd still have foal pics, he's 14. But I'd love to collect as much info as possible. I found a previous owner from when he was 1-2, and she gave me a little more info. His registered name is Arthur HW.
      Hi CindyB59. I do know Winkler's, if you mean the Winkler's that own Scotch Bottom Farm in Ohio. I tried to look up your boy through the pedigree search on the AHR website, but his name does not come up (which is very strange). You might want to contact the AHR office in Ohio to see if they can give you more info and tell you why his pedigree isn't listed if he is registered. Their e-mail is ahaflinger@sbcglobal.net.

      I thought Arthur might be by their stallion, Artiest van de Wortel, but if he is fourteen, he may be too old to be by him. (I can't remember the year Artiest was born.) The Winkler's (if we are talking about the same people) are into drafts now, and I think that they sold all of their horses. I could not find any information on Artiest anywhere, even doing a google search.

      Actually, just looked a little deeper and checked out his suffix. According to the AHR suffix list, the Winkler's were not his breeders (they use the SBF suffix), this person was:

      B.F. (Ted) Hicks
      Lexington
      KY
      USA
      HW

      There may be other people named Winkler who are breeder's, but the guy above is the only one listed who uses the HW suffix. Do you have the registration papers for your horse? If you do and can tell me their names, I might be able to give you some more information (if I know the horses). If he is registered, the AHR office should be able to look him up, if you do not have his papers. Good luck! I will be curious to know if you find out anything. (By the way, here is the AHR website, in case you do not have it: www.haflingerhorse.com)

          • Thanks Mary - I do have his papers and Artiest Van De Wortel is his sire (born in 95 based on his reg #), and Winklers Halflingers in Ohio are his breeders. He was born 2/13/99. Dam is V-Nicol-Van-Lievers (NL-16820). His reg # is 12480-99.

            Thanks for all the info. Anything you find is great - I appreciate it.

            • Here are some photos of my young stallion, Stellar TVR. Unfortunately, I don't have any really good photos of him under saddle yet, but this is the best one out of the group I have from last year after two months under saddle. (He is "chunkier" than I would have liked in this photo.) He was started lightly as a three-year-old in 2011:
              http://newhorizonshaflingers.com/Ste...ndersaddle.jpg

              This is from last year as a four-year-old at his Weser-Ems inspection:
              http://newhorizonshaflingers.com/Ste...ectiontrot.jpg

              This is a photo taken last month at the MSU Stallion Expo in Michigan (just to get an idea of what he looks like now):
              https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater

              I should have some very nice under saddle photos at the end of the year after the stallion testing!

                I wonder if the other person I found bought the mare in foal and that is why his suffix is being used. I'm guessing that is what happened.

                Have you tried to contact Jodi Winkler to ask her about his parents? I haven't talked to her in a long time, but she is very friendly and knowledgeable. Let me know if you want her number. I can find it for you and PM you.

                I really liked Ariest when I saw him. I don't know the mare, but I know an Amish man in Indiana bought several of Winkler's mares at one point. I will check and see if she was one of them.

                • That'd be great - or an e-mail address. She may not really know much about his life, but I'm crossing fingers for foal pics or anything she may have heard over the years.

                  So far, he's a great little guy. Have only ridden once, until I get a saddle that fits better - I don't want to make him sore or anything. But he's a sweetie & darn cute too!

                  • Love all the Halflingers, so cute! I looked for a Halflinger when I was shopping. I don't know that I have found "my breed" yet, I love them all.

                    I finally got a dressage saddle that my pony loves and that fits us both (thanks honeylips!!!). I cannot thank her enough for deciding to sell this saddle. I had a really fabulous ride the other night in it. It is a Schleese Link II she had made for a pony that has been sold, and after trying more than 20 saddles this one fit. I had the half blocks put on it last week and I am now in heaven. Hopefully I will have some actual dressage pictures of my dressage pony soon.

                        I do ride Waldheer on occasion (he was gelded in October). They do still have Noblesse. She is the dam of Tony, and his year-younger full brother who I ride as well (I took him fox hunting when he was just 4 months under saddle...love Haflingers!).

                          Goodpony, love the foal!! He is adorable!

                          CindyB59, I tried to look up Jodi Winkler's number but she is no longer in the AHR Directory. I think your best bet is to call the AHR office. They may be able to give you her contact info if it is still in their database.

                          tonythepony, I did not realize that they gelded Waldheer. Wish I could get Noblesse and breed her to my boy. I've never seen her in person, but she looks pretty awesome from her photos.

                          • Thought I would share a couple of other photos for the people out there who said that they liked Haflingers.

                            These horses do not belong to me, but I do know the owners. I think that they represent the breed really well. (CindyB59, I don't know if you were at any shows last year that Max--first two photos--was at, but he showed on the west coast in Oregon and I think, California.)

                            This is one stallion from out west showing at fourth level this year. (Photos are from last year, when he was shown very successfully at third level last year.)
                            http://www.wingspannfarm.com/media/s...n/max10BIG.jpg
                            http://www.wingspannfarm.com/media/s...on/max9BIG.jpg

                            Hope the links work.

                            And a video link to another that showed at least through first level, maybe second as well. (Video is at liberty, not under saddle, but shows how lofty his movement is.)
                            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xW4QEEIPgU8

                            Neither of these horses is connected to me in any way. I'm just really excited that they are out there representing the breed well. Hopefully, my boy will be there in a couple of years.

                            • The pics don't work, but they did on the other thread. Gorgeous, both of them. I haven't paid much attention to halfies at shows in the past. Now that I own one, you bet I will be.

                              I am going to trial a Duett on him, she has one that will hopefully fit us both in stock. Can't wait - I'm anxious to really ride him. We're both out of shape, but I have high hopes for us .
