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.

  • Thoroughbred Stallions

    Thoroughbred Stallions: Who is planning on breeding to them in 2011? Which boys are your top candidates and who are the lucky ladies? What is the #1 reason you are breeding to that stallion?

    I've seen a lot of threads about the TB boys out there but am curious as to who is actually breeding to them and why
    Those who say "Money can't buy happiness" never bought their child a pony


  • #2
    I am torn in a few directions, but I have two Thoroughbreds on my top list.

    #1. Triple Twist - He is the right size for me, and hopefully won't throw larger. He has excellent bloodlines for sport, and has competed in Eventing. My mare is a full sibling to an advanced level eventer herself.
    #2. Innkeeper - I absolutely love this stallion, I've heard great things about his offspring, and I think he would be a great cross to Casey as well.

    Both of them also throw ammy temperaments. My mare isn't hot, but she can be sensitive so I'd prefer not to add to that.

      I will be breeding my Puchi Trap (bay sabino TB) mare back to Guaranteed Gold (cremello TB stallion) for her 8th foal with him. The match is simply magic - every single foal is spectacular ...

      RFF Pearlescent (perlino TB) is also being bred back to Guaranteed Gold for a 100% guarantee of a double dilute TB foal

      My new TB mare that I just bought yesterday will also be bred to Guaranteed Gold for her first foal. Will be dilute and should have some wild markings as well ...

      My other TB mare that I am breeding is a daughter of Guaranteed Gold so she is being bred to my other stallion who is Polish WB, but 54% TB, so I will get a little over a 75% TB foal with that cross ...

          I am trying to find a permanent home for my main broodmare ( the dam of the 2005 Sallie B Wheeler champion) but if I don't find one by March, I will breed her to Canadian Kid to get another hunter as close to my first palomino, Gold Panda, as I can (given that his dam is now deceased).


          • #6
            I always consider a TB a performance choice, with the athleticism of the TB such a major factor in all the sport disciplines and WB books.

            If I were using a TB, I would probably want pay attention to the criteria being discussed over on the "proven" thread.

            Color in TB's being a novelty (however well promoted), performance would necessarily take a back seat if one were primarily selecting for color.

            TC, with that mare you've bred 8 times, what are the other seven foals up to performance-wise?

              Sea Accounts.
              He evented to Prelim and he is now doing 4th level dressage.
              And I like the two I have now !!
              Fan of Sea Accounts


              • #8
                PineTree, I absolutely love Sea Accounts but my mare is related to him, and we're too far away. Her pedigree is here: Casey Darlinghttp://www.pedigreequery.com/casey+darling2I hate being so limited geographically. Otherwise I'd love to look at Coconut Grove and AFR.

                There is a stallion by Private Accounts (who is Sea Accounts' broodmare sire) standing in Virginia. His name is Audited. http://www.shnpayback.org/stallions/audited.xml

                I like the looks of him, but wasn't going for a Hunter foal, which is what his foals are proven in.

                  I would use Roanoke
                  if he was still here in PA....but one, he moved to the midwest and two he is already in my mare's pedigree. Roanoke consistently produces TBs that look like WBs.
                  Another top choice is Sir Juli Go
                  here in PA. My problem with him is that he is gray. Normally I don't care about color...but the mare is a pinto TB. Pinto people don't like gray foals since they lose their "color" eventually. For a non pinto mare I would use him for sure. He raced a lot, stayed sound and went on to jump after that.
                  If I end up breeding her (up in the air with the economy) my top pick at present is way up in Canada at Blazing Colours:
                  Golden Time
                  mare is a bit short/he is tall and confo looks lovely. The dilute color is a bonus if the foal gets both dilute and pinto....but not important.

                    I need a mare to breed to A Fine Romance. The two I have won't cross well on a TB. I'm trying to figure out how I can sneak a 3rd mare into the field without DH noticing.


                    • #11
                      Another vote for Innkeeper! I have a mare by him who is in foal to Cielo B for 2011... Stay tuned, should be a nice foal

                          Thank you Go Fish!!

                          My advice, after long years of sneaking mares in past the not-so-watchful eye of the DH, is to stick with plain bays.... they all look the same to him.

                              Is anyone planning to breed to/interested in Pegasus Pure Gold? I love the dilute colour but he is such a gorgeous mover I would breed to him without it! I'm waiting for him to prove himself as an eventer a bit more and to see how some of his foals turn out performance-wise before I consider breeding to him. Just wondering if anyone else had any thoughts on him...?


                              • #16
                                Go Fish, I have a very nice mare that I think would match well with AFR (would love to have that happen) -- but I'm sure the distance would factor in. She's not for sale, but would rather have her in production to a good stallion than just hanging out.


                                • #17
                                  I'm breeding my Trakehner mare (EH Buddenbrock x EH Benz) to Coconut Grove xx. Expecting an upper level eventer from that cross

                                  I think it's safe to say that he fulfills the meaning of "proven" in terms of his own accomplishments, his damline and his siblings, and his oldest offspring are showing a good deal of promise in the showring. He is also known to complement my mare in the areas where she needs a helping hand (legs, thrust).

                                  Sea Accounts is another one I have on my short list and also AFR.

                                    Coconut Grove

                                    My sister is trying again with Coconut Grove for her 19 year old Rhinelander maiden.

                                    Mare is big, old style, amazing personality. Successful A/O jumper still in work. Needs some blood. We joke that if she put her to some WBs out there the baby would come out pulling a cart.

                                    Hoping for an upper lever jumper.

                                      It probably doesn't help to know I am pretty sure his 1/2 sister has a white spot on her neck (that you can only see when she is wet because she, too, is gray) & that he himself has sired a very flashy non-gray filly from a plain bay mare, the filly having an interesting blaze & 4 high, jagged whites.
