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.

  • Casall - Offspring

    How do you like the Casalls?

    We have numerous young ones by him, from foals to 6yrs old, and really believe in him. They are all pretty horses with big stride and scope and a perfect jump.

    See "C.C.Catch" (mother by Coronado) and "Cenzor" (mother by Alcatraz):

      I believe Chad Keenum had one in his barn, imported maybe 2 years ago? You may find him on Chad's Congratulations page, www.cksporthorses.com, "Cassallo". If I recall, he was just wonderful, super mover, great jumper and perfect brain as well as gorgeous. I *think* he was tragically lost in a freak accident, though.

        Casall is a top stallion and is being considered as good as Cassini and Contender ..........maybe better.

          We had the first two born in the US and they are 3 this year. They are really super. I would jump at the opportunity to breed to him again. Ca-ching was a keeper for us, so we will have her out in sport next year.

            Even in Germany it's not so easy to get semen anymore. Like Cassini and Caretino, he is only available for Holstein mares owned by registered Holstein breeders. We are quite happy that we have lots of youngsters!

            Maybe you should buy some Casall fillys to put in your breeding program. If you are interested, just contact us!

              i have found the instance of observing casall's career very interesting. when younger, there was very much a sense of 'wait and see' from many breeders. his sire, caretino, although epic in his own production, was also quite varied and one never was sure what a mare might throw from him. it has taken time for casall's breeding results to indicate greater consistency than his sire. we were waiting and looking for the good caretino son to come and so far no one else seems to be filling those shoes as well as casall. casall has already produced exponentially well, including siring the reserve champion stallion of holstein last year.

              in sport there were some of the usual questions of him as a youngster. certainly he has been in good hands and has made the most of that. i believe we might see him at the weg in ky with rolf up, assumably for the swedish team (?). i watched rolf school him at count rantzau's castle a couple of years ago..... plenty nice enough, but all eyes at the time were on rolf's other mount in the barn, ninja, who then turned up an individual silver medal in hong kong.

              since then casall has made a surge, both in his progression through the ranks of the sport as well as in the breeding shed, as already noted. breeders such as myself who had held back didn't need to wait any longer and the verband have been inundated with requests such that, as mentioned above, he is now only for verband mares in holstein.

              for myself, i am thrilled to have a pregnancy coming from my 3yo casiro x canturo mare who just scored 50 bonits in her test in the spring, and who comes from a grandmother who was a nations cup winning jumper for germany.

              i guess the moral of the story may be that wisdom waits to see, but when the real thing shows up, be careful not to take too long to get convinced!

                Uh, I'm pretty sure this was a rhetorical question so that we could look at some nice Casall's for sale...not sure the original poster needs to be told that Casall is an important stallion

                  there may well have been a self-serving intent from the op, but nonetheless we find that even holsteiner breeders who do not stay current with the breed can fall behind in current knowledge and be unaware of either the situation behind a stallion like casall or even the horse's existence. his has been a unique rise through the ranks and i trust that airing details of his story is interesting for some...

                    And I for one found your information very interesting. Thank you, ne1.

                    One quick question after looking at the photos of the Casall offspring in the OP. Is Casall noted for producing moderate to small offspring? Both the horses above looked fairly small under the woman rider. Great jumps and style, just not as big as I usually think of holsteiners. Unless the woman is quite tall.

                      I just wanted to know what you think about Casall in the States. We were one of the first breeders in Germany who believed in him (even though we don't really like Caretino - as mentioned above, you never know what you get when you breed with Caretino...). We loved his first offspring when they were babies because they are ALL well balanced, good movers and very sporty types. That is very close to our idea of an ideal sport horse.

                      We are now quite happy that we believed in him very early. It's similar with Clarimo. His offspring might even have more quality than the Casalls, but the types and moves of the Casalls seem to be better.

                      Casall produces not too big, but nice medium size. They grow a long time - the chestnut was small as a 5yrs old but is now 1,68 m (16.2). He is already sold to Belgium, so don't worry that this post is only promotion.
                      The bay mare is the same size, but very noble, so she looks smaller than she is.

                      I wouldn't combine Casall with a small producing mare, but if they produce average size, I would have no objection.

                        Very good assessment of Casall's production. It was known after his first foal crop that he would do best with mares with lots of framework and long legs.

                        I have seen many that were very deep in the body with short legs from the wrong mares.

                          An acquaintance of mine has a Casall gelding; he is maybe 15.1. The little sucker can jump though and he is quick and game. We call him the equine dirt bike. Vroom vroom. Suits her though, she is a petite young woman.

                            I have a Cassall-Lasino mare that is amazing. She is gorgeous to look at, right at or just under 17 H. Super flashy & amazing jump. She has tons of scope & is very careful, but I am told her way of going & form would make her a great hunter derby horse. Most importantly, she is very easy - right from the beginning when I got her a little over a year ago with a few months under saddle. My parents bought a Cassall-Carthago a few years ago as a baby-she was 17.1 H and also very pretty & rideable with a ton of jump - she sold young to a well-known hunter trainer as a hunter derby horse, was doing great, but had to be retired & bred after a year or something because of ringbone or something like that. My friend bought a 4 yo Cassall gelding at the holsteiner auction in the fall (in Neumunster) and he is true to form. Same comments as with the other 2. All very pretty, flashy, good movers, athletic & rideable. If you can't tell-I am a huge fan!
