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.

    shout out to the baby daddy, Tzigane *Pb*!!
    here are my two favorite pics of Taz:

    I took my Anglo-TK kiddo, Swank Dezign, to the Trakehner inspection last weekend and she was a little star. She racked up the highest foal score which was Premium! Plus she was the only Anglo. The others were out of imported mares.

    I trotted Miss Swain around the arena once in hand with Swanky running at liberty and the judge said "ok that's enough, I've seen all I need."
    He dished out a score of 8/9/9 and then went on to tell everyone why she scored so well and said some pretty amazing stuff. He was really informative and I was very impressed with him.
    He did the branding as well.

    We really wanted Mom/Daughter "at liberty" pics so while he gave his explanations we let them roam around the area for some kodak time.

    here are a few of the pics!!
    She's 5 months old now.

    she just stood there like a good girl.

    I can't wait to do some more stuff with her.
    Hopefully Area V will hold a FEH competition next year.

    Weaning is next weekend and Miss Swain is going to go to my friend, to hopefully make a few Flagmount's Freedom babies! (ISH)

            She's lovely; so are her mum and dad.

            I don't understand the Traks. Is she a trak or an Anglo-Trak? Don't they have something slightly different for half Trakehners? Is Miss Swain accepted for Trakehner breeding from henceforth?

                I believe Swain was presented to ATA prior to the birth of the wee one for Trak approval and received it. I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure I remember a thread about it.

                    Trakehner accepts TBs and Arabs

                    Yes, Miss Swain was accepted into the American Trakehner Association Preliminary Stud Book.
                    This means that when bred to an approved Trak stallion, the baby is considered 100% Trak and can be branded as such.

                    If I had not had Miss Swain approved, I believe I would have had the baby branded with the 1/2 antler.

                    This is how Windfall is considered full Trakehner.
                    He is:
                    1/4 Trakehner
                    1/4 Shagya Arab
                    1/2 TB

                    His parents were approved.
                    I would call him an Anglo Arab. I sure am glad he's an approved Trak stallion because he has some nice kiddos out there.

                    http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/windfall4

                    interestingly enough...I *think* if I were to take Swain Song xx (approved in ATA PSB) and breed her to Sea Accounts xx (approved ATA breeding stallion) the resulting 100% TB foal could be branded full Trakehner. I may be totally off on that one though...

                    Once Swanky Swanks turns 3, I'll take her back for her mare approval.

                        Not quite... I wondered about this myself as there's no way that I know of (no expert!) to breed a full TB by AI and have it eligible for WB breeding. Which makes no sense.

                        Q: If my stallion is approved, can his purebred Thoroughbred or Arabian offspring be registered as Trakehners?
                        A: No, only offspring produced from Official Studbook Trakehner mares without a Thoroughbred or Arabian parent will be eligible for Official Registry Book registration.
                        Q: Why is his breeding license restricted to Trakehner mares without a Thoroughbred or Arabian parent?
                        A: Horses must be 50% Trakehner blood to be eligible for registration because the ATA is based on bloodlines rather than sport horse type.
                        But that is a gorgeous baby girl you have!

                              If you have a WB approved full TB stallion and you breed to a WB approved TB mare there are some registries that will register the full TB foal. I believe A Fine Romance has some full TB offspring registered as Oldenburgs, and I'm sure there are others. ATA may have percentage of Trak blood rules though.
                              there was just a thread about this recently on e breeding forum.

                              Lovely foal! You must be thrilled with those scores!

                                Trak. approved TB stallion and Trak. approved TB mare--resulting foal would not be eligible for Trakehner papers. Must be 50% Trakehner blood. Could get Jockey Club papers if breeding was live cover. Not sure if foal would be eligible for official papers with any registry other than Jockey Club.

                                    this is interesting...
                                    how is it that Windfall was registered then?

                                    In theory, he is:

                                    arabian/thoroughbred
                                    trakehner
                                    thoroughbred
                                    thoroughbred

                                    So 1/8 arab + 1/8 thoroughbred
                                    1/4 Trakehner
                                    1/2 thoroughbred

                                    even though his pops was only 50% Trakehner he was registered Trakehner but that doesn't transfer 50% Trakehner blood to Windfall.

                                      I may be mistaken in the percentages. This was off the top of my head. Probably should have looked it up. I have a mostly TB mare base so am limited in taking advantage of the new TB stallions. Even though I drool when I look at them! Also, Windfall was approved in Germany and their requirements differ in some areas. Maren would be the one to chime in on this one. Also, it may have something to do with the fact that the TB's are for improvement of the breed and there are restrictions on what can be bred to them and still get full Trakehner papers.

                                        I do wish the ATA would consider opening a full TB Book as an Appendix. It would solve the A1 conundrum (sp), would not dilute their trak book, and would serve as conduit for sport bred TB blood to be incorporated into the full Traks.

                                        It could work something like the AQHA Appendix registry.

                                        They are the obvious WB registry to do something like that.
