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!

    What do you guys think of this mare?

    http://www.canterusa.org/index.php?o...ngs&Itemid=284

    There's something about her that struck me. She seems to have a really nice, solid build... as well as a gorgeous face and sweet eye!

  • #2
    She has an adorable face! Her conformation isn't too shabby either. Are you in the market? Go take a look



    ETA: She looked good in her video too.

        I like her. I've only seen a couple Philanthropist offspring (at the sales, not in sport) but I liked them too. Kris S is a good line of Roberto, makes really nice shoulders (and generally good knees on jumpers!). Some nice older names fairly close up in that pedigree, too.

        She has that lovely Kris S shoulder, good body balance, and what a sweet expression. After seeing the video, you can see how that pretty front end just daisy-cuts light across the ground; she might be a little short now, but that can improve. Take a close look at those ankles though-- could be just the photo, but they seem a bit big. HQ maybe a bit weak, but that's just muscling to me, will change with time and proper work. She's worth a look in person just from the listing.

        Reviewing her race record, she last ran in November 2012 and was "eased." Hopefully there's nothing wrong, maybe she just needed a break after a fairly heavy racing season (about 2x a month March-Nov).

        Let us know if you check her out! Nice find.

          Hey, AJ, can you explain the numbers after the horse's name in Pedigreequery? There's a string of numbers and then a DI. I get the starts and placings, but the other stuff is like greek to me.

          For instance, this horse had these:

          DP = 6-1-11-1-1 (20) DI = 1.67 CD = 0.50
          Always be yourself. Unless you can be Batman. Then always be Batman.

            DP = 6-1-11-1-1 (20) DI = 1.67 CD = 0.50

            That's called "Dosage." Don't ask me to explain it... Read this article Chefs-de-Race for a full low-down. Basically, the string of numbers represents the score of ancestors in a horse's pedigree, rated on a scale from Sprinting to Distance. The lower the Dosage Index (DI) the more likely the horse is to be a distance runner. The higher the number, the more likely the horse is sprinter-bred. CD is the center of distribution.

            All I know is I prefer low numbers... more distance-influenced pedigrees. I read somewhere that most Derby horses are about 3.5 or less, so I tend to notice that. But it's more of a "huh, ok" glance than anything that I take too seriously. My own upper level mare has a dosage of 2.6; Molokai is 2.3; but Courageous Comet is 4.45; Fappiano is 4.76.

            Henny Hughes, who throws some downhill sprinter types, is a 7.0. Wise Dan, 2012 BC Mile champ and HOTY has a DI of 1.5. But Midnight Lute, champion sprinter, has DI 2.56. Sometimes dosage matches up, sometimes it doesn't, you're better off asking the horse how far he wants to run.

                    She's got a decent build, clean looking legs, and a kind eye. She did seem a little hitchy in the right hind in the first few strides of the trot (both ways), but she seemed to warm out of it. I'd say she's worth looking at, at the very least. Keep an eye on the ankle and get a basic PPE before taking her home, if you plan to event. In general, though, I like her. Very cute.

                      DP = 6-1-11-1-1 (20) DI = 1.67 CD = 0.50

                      I don't full understand these numbers, but here's what I can tell you. DP is about the amount of Chefs-de-race in a pedigree. These are the stallions who have proven to be most influential. The 5 numbers are for the 5 distance types from short sprints (first number) to longest (the fifth). The middle number is "classic" (Kentucky Derby) distance. The stallions are designated to influential for one or more of these distances. The more of these stallions and the closer, the higher the number. So, if you have a horse with higher numbers in the first two numbers, it was bred for sprinting. And if the numbers are higher in the last two numbers, then it was bred for distance. The number in () is the total of the five.

                      So a horse with a high number in () is "well-bred" you might say. But I'm with AJ, I want the DI and CD to be low.

                      Here is Sea Accounts:

                      SEA ACCOUNTS (USA) blk. H, 1999 DP = 2-4-15-4-1 (26) DI = 1.08 CD = 0.08

                      His sire, Sea Hero, won the 1993 Kentucky Derby. He was bred to do the same, lucky for me, he was a gangly youngster and didn't run so well!

                        Unfortunately I am not actively in the market right now... despite the fact that I'm always looking online...

                        I just really liked her build and wanted to know what you guys thought. And perhaps to share this lovely girl so that someone may snatch her up!

                          Cyriz's mom, thank you so much for that and informative post!

                          For grins and giggles, I've got one mare with the following:
                          DP: 2-0-8-8-2 (20) DI: 0.43, CD: - 0.40 (yes, that's a minus 0.40)
                          They don't call me frugal for nothing.

                            Minus horses are very rare in the United States. Here's the pedigree of a filly who was born Canada and is for sale.
                            http://www.pedigreequery.com/monarchosgrandoter
                            She has both His Majesty and his full brother Graustark and the pedigree is luscious for eventing. Both have CDs of less than 1.

                            To have a DI of less than one is even rarer, and in NA probably means that there is a double to Herbager.

                            My guy who never raced has a CD of 0. He also has a double to Graustark. Roberto is a stamina influence also. Deputy Minister has a CD of less than one. Northern Dancer is also less than one.

                                2-0-12-0-4 (18) DI = 0.80 CD = -0.22

                                No Herbager, but he is also His Majesty bred (grandsire on top). I am guessing gets a lot of the distance dosage from Fabled Monarch/ Le Fabuleux on the bottom?

                                  24 of Le Fabuleux's dosage points are in the very last category which is Professional (IIRC). He has six points from classic distance sires. No sprinters and Intermediate (miler).

                                    Viney, I should have credited you with teaching me about my mare's negative CD. Thank you! For anyone who is curious, this mare was bred in England and here is her pedigree http://www.pedigreequery.com/darcykino . I don't think she has any Herbager, but I've been wrong before.


                                    I hope the mare whose pedigree you linked to finds a soft landing in a sport oriented home.

                                      Relkino is in the damline of one of the truly great chasers of our time. But I'm darned if I can pull up the name right now. Might be Kauto Star, but I'm not sure. I was wrong. It's Relko that he shares with your mare. Relko is one of the absolute staple lines in Chasing in Europe. You're very lucky to have a mare with such a sterling dam line.
                                      Kauto Star is doing dressage now in retirement, you know.

                                        Thank you again, Viney. That is so cool! My mare is related to Kauto Star. Maybe that will make it easier to sell her rising 4yo son.

                                        I am attracted to a "type" of OTTB, and they've always rewarded me with their abilities. Until you began to educate me on pedigrees, I didn't know the "why" of their talents, though. I really appreciate your teaching.
