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!

    He is on my short list of stallions to breed my mare to. What are his foals like? And does anyone knoe what his semen is like? For those with foals by him, what do you think he brought to the table?

    I have a yearling filly by him out of a 16 hand Webster mare. She is very pretty, had a beautiful head, very correct straight legs and VERY tall. Her mother is by Webster and a little over 16 hands. Her movement is very forward and rythmic and definately better than her dam. Her temperament is wonderful... she is very sweet to handle... she is good for the farrier and even likes her mane being pulled. The only thing I'm not crazy about is she is a bit heavy in the throat latch, but she is actually growing into it... she is 16 months and already 15.2 hands. I purchased two doses and my mare took the first time so I do have another dose in my tank ... semen was very good when we looked at it under the scope.

      Nancy Holowesko of Crosiadore Farm has a colt born this year by him. Very big moving colt.

        Our Fuerst Romancier colt is 4 1/2 months old. I would agree on the comments " very correct, straight legs and very tall"! Mine did not get the pretty head, and is a little bit of a momma's boy, but the rest is hard to fault. Super athletic colt, super hind leg, good expression in the gaits. Maybe could have more lift in the front, but I think his hind leg is over powering him a bit right now. Just made a quick video this morning.


        If you go to the Schockemohle website there is a listing somewhere of the FR offspring for sale. There were about 20 or so to have a look at a few months back. Also, four or five FR foals just went through the Oldenburg Elite Foal Auction yesterday and many had videos.

        This colt was conceived with one dose of frozen semen.

          Seen a lot of his foals this year. A lot of very good moving ones, some a little heavy topped at times, not many of them I would say were over tall though. Some were a bit ordinary.

          One of the ones that went through vechta last night was a super athletic mover and the best of his I have seen so far, without the catalogue in front of me I cant remember the mare side, but it was listed as a filly orginally but was actually a colt.

            I adore my filly. She is a keeper for sure. Holly at the GOV inspection said she was the nicest FR she had seen anywhere and certainly the prettiest. She is out of my lovely TB mare who is also very pretty so that is probably coming through. She is going to be tall but refined. She has a better hind end than her dam and can really use it when she wants. She is so laid back it is hard to get her jazzed up! We were cutting a tree up right by their pasture and they both just stood there and watched!

            There are pictures on my facebook and it is public. One link is

            We only used one dose of frozen but the mare is young and fertile and the only mare that worked with frozen. I used one dose on another mare and it didn't work. Same vet but I guess a more difficult mare. I am going to breed this mare back to him next year as I used fresh Wolkentanz II this year.

              d4e, lovely filly. Can really see the xx in her.

              I really like the stallion, but honestly the foals that I have seen (with the exception of a few) are not knocking my socks off. Time will tell how they are as riding horses. I was considering him for my mare but think I'll wait.

                Thanks Honeychile. From what I've heard he needs a refining mare as he doesn't usually refine. I'm like you as I've seen nice ones and some not as nice. I really think the combination worked for my mare and am happy but her Tb colt is also big and good looking so I think she adds a lot to the equation. Honestly this filly has the best personality though and while the mare is good as well I think some of it is the sire. I love my filly and call her my little ballerina as she seems like her feet never touch the ground she is always floating. I think he works really well with the right mare. I guess time will tell how they are undersaddle.
