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!

    Does anyone know where I can find a conformation picture of this stallion? I hear people saying that he needs a mare with a good hind end, but I'd like to know more specifics.

    I really like him, but I have yet to find a conformation shot of him. But you hear a lot about "his hind end". Maybe one of our COTH friend's who is in Germany or travels there will have one.

      Hm, I saw him while I was traveling in Germany. I thought he was gorgeous, and so kind & inquisitive. However, he had his blanket on and I didn't take a good look. He was very impressive in person, much like Sandro Hit, and appeared very correct. Which is saying a lot, because even with blankets still on some of the famous names weren't as they appear in photo's. Some of the stallions I noticed in my travels were post-legged or built like a GS behind...scary

        I saw him in his stable a few times at his SPT. From what I remember he was built somewhat like a sausage with long legs His barrel was as flat/wide on top as it was deep. He was a hair on the long side with a somewhat flat croup. I recall his legs being correct and he had a nice neck. He was a total character in the stable and very sweet. I watched him remove his blanket over his head without undoing any buckles. I watched him work every day that we were there and he was absolutely impressive. His rideability was second to none and he seemed happy and willing all the time. His gaits were stunning and I felt he absolutely deserved his huge score.

          We just bought a 2 1/2 year licensed stallion by Sir Donnerhall at the Oldenburg stallion licensing in Vechta> He is out of a St. Pr./El. St. mare by Feiner Stern who is out of a St. Pr./ El. St. by Pik Bube. You can read all about it on the Oldenburg website here:

              Does he have Furioso II top and bottom?

                    That is the Holsteiner stallion Feldherr in Sir Donnerhall's damline - not Freiherr. Feldherr does not descend from Furioso.

                      I saw him too when I was in Germany, but he had his blanket on. He was GORGEOUS though. I don't think his hind legs are incorrect, but my guess is that if you stood him up he would be a bit out behind ...that is how he moves anyways. He flexes his hocks really well, but I don't think he shortens/quickens the hind stride really well (probably why the piaffe /passage stuff is hard for alot of the S line horses).

                      I used him on a mare with a quick hind leg. She is built well under herself and the resulting filly is super. I would just never use him with a mare that is over angulated behind, long in the stifle...or slow behind.

                          This is what I hear generally about S-line horses. My personal experience has been that with SH and Stedinger offspring, anyway, that they have exceptionally quick hind legs, so it seems easy enough to improve with the right choice of mares. I did take it into account when picking matches.

                          The Sir Donnerhall offspring I have seen have been uniformly very good movers and I like them even better under saddle.

                              SD has a very flat croup, like a table top, and a slightly straight hind leg. I would never breed to him myself as I dislike the hind end so strongly. However I like a number of his offspring I have seen so I would use a son or buy a daughter if they inherited his good qualities and not that hind end. And yes I have seen him without his blankets on LOL

                                Didn't you say you work for Schockemoehle? If so, I am not sure he would be so thrilled with a number of your recent comments about his horses (e.g., Hotline, as well). I just find it curious.

                                    99.90% certain the answer is yes. His brother SD II is not approved though.

                                    Ask Sunny Days for sure, she had a SD colt this year out of her Contendro mare and I believe he went to a Hanov. inspection and not a GOV one.

                                        YL, what do you want me to say, every horse here is the best thing since sliced bread. The horse is well known to have a very flat hind quarter, but I like what he produces. Whats wrong with that??? I would buy a Don Frederico as I like what he produces but wouldn't breed to him myself as he has a quite crooked front leg, just in case my foal inherited that crookedness. I wouldnt breed to Quaterback as there are issues with him I dont like, but I have seen a foal by himn I would love to have afforded, and some that have issues that I dont like. If someone has first hand experience of a horse and its not all rosy, should they stay quiet? I didnt say the horse was crap, I said I wouldnt breed to him myself, thats very different
