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!

  • Canadian Eventing Sires for my Thoroughbred mare

    Back at it again! I have not had good luck with finding a stallion for my mare. I had purchased a breeding and when I was ready to breed the stallion had died...

    Now I am trying to find something that will be suitable for producing a nice eventer for me.

    I really loved A Fine Romance and was unfortunately told they weren't taking anymore mares to breed this year.

    I am not really sure how I can post photo's on this site of her though... But my personal website is http://jmcequineservices.webs.com/ There are some photos of us eventing there.

      I really like Gatsby.
      I am hoping to breed to him soon, but we keep having things come up that keep us from breeding this year.

        Do you want or need a thoroughbred? Does the sire have to be in Canada or are you open to fresh from the US or frozen from anywhere in the world?

        Since your mare is a TB, you can go with a non-TB sire and still make the usual blood percentage. If you're open to non-TBs, PM pegasusmom here and ask her about her current horse with Boyd Martin (if memory hasn't gone all wonky). Horse is a grandson of Cozy's Commander who was the sire of John William's Carrick. The son is named Cozymyn. Stallion owner is Doug Dean. From what i gather, the stallion owners are good to work with. Pegasusmom's horse is by the son, Cozymyn.

        You also might want to look at Strut The Stage, a racing TB stallion in Ontario at Sam-Son Farms. They don't seem to be against breeding for sport, and you might be able to get a deal on the stud fee if you ask.

          Commander is dead, but our horse is by Cozymyn, one of Commander's sons. Commander also sired Carrick, Zydeco and several other upper level eventers. There are several Elvis children out and about at the moment - our horse Cold Harbor who is now with Dom Schramm, Topper with Anita Nemtin-Gilmour, and Jules with Steph Butts are three full brothers. Sweepea Dean is also by Elvis.

            Doesn't specifically need to be thoroughbred... I would prefer it but i've looked at others too.

            There was a deal on for a limited number of mare for a stallion named vantage by viva voltaire... but he hasn't done a whole lot yet.

            I forgot about Rather Well! I did a clinic with Garry Roque and he loved my mare. Had nothing but great things to say and kept saying he'd love to have her as a broodmare.

              Rather Well has competed Advanced himself (which is important IMHO), and has a great temperament. And he has several offspring at the upper levels too. I don't know the details, but his owner posts here occasionally, so maybe she'll chime in.

                She seems like a lovely mare

                Apologies in advance for going off topic here ... but how did things work out with her face lump?
                (& the Xterra & weight loss & possible surgery & ...)

                (& in the same theme, do you still have her daughter & how is she doing re the old chip?... sorry to be invasive, but I always want to know how these things turn out )

                  Alto, thank you for asking!!!!!!!!

                  Vic is very healthy now. The xterra worked very well and she has been tumour free since. We were just out running and bucking across one of our fields this morning she definately doesn't act or feel old

                  Her daughter is doing great as well too... Ive just started her back to work (she got a bad abcess in the fall and I didnt ride over the winter because we all just stayed at home without an indoor). I won't be eventing her, I've decided to just keep her for dressage because it just doesn't seem worth the risk to her.

                    I have a mare by Grippee who has turned out incredibly nice. She has the most fantastic, willing, happy, temperament. I don't know anything much about him, or about other offspring, but this mare is just lovely.

                        I would prefer to stay in Ontario so that getting fresh semen will be possible. I don't want to deal with frozen...

                          Knee jerk was also Rather Well, very much like him.

                          Beaulieu's Quissini is a Canadian stallion Denny Emerson thinks the world of, might be worth checking him out as well.

                            What about Ilian de Taute (SF), son of Narcos II. Owned by Armstrong Farm in Orangeville Ontario.

                            He has evented through Prelim, and competed successfully in GP Jumpers with Robin Walker.

                            My horse Chief (Premier de Kegan) was by Ilian de Taute, out of a RID x TB mare. I sold him in December (I bought him as a asles project), but I had a blast eventing him until then.

                              Thanks for the kind words about Rather Well - he has got a number of kids competing in eventing with several moving up the levels (I brag about his kids on his facebook page, so I won't bore you here with it.) He stands at Garry Roque's and I'm sure he'd be happy to show him to you if you want to drop by for a visit. Garry is pretty particular about the mares he breeds, so if he likes yours, she must be nice! I'll PM you his phone number.......

                                We have a 7 yr old mare by Ilian that we are very excited about. Lots of pics on our gallery if you want to see her - Lilly - Dark bay - 17.3hh ridden by my younger son - her talent is amazing.

                                      You can get fresh - they ship fresh all the time? Do you mean you want live cover, if so you might want to put that in your post because most non-TBs do not do live cover. I am getting fresh from a Canadian stallion this year.

                                        I am pretty sure it woulod be impossible to get fresh semen shipped from the states... I tried looking into getting frozen semen from a GOV auction and it was crazy expensive. Although you could be right, depending on where in canada it may be possible to get fresh shipped.

                                        I dont want to do live cover, Id prefer to avoid shipping my mare anywhere etc... Fresh is just way easier for everyone I think and I would have no problem picking it up myself if it was within reasonable distance.
