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.

  • Suggested stallions

    So my Third level mare KwPN just re-injured her SDF in the pasture, so it appears she's going to need an extended layoff. I've been tossing around the idea of breeding her. (Suggested to me by Bo Jena after seeing the mare ridden in one of his clinics.)

    She is 15.1 1/2 hands, maiden mare, wide barreled, takes up almost the same amount of leg as my 16.2 1/2 hand SWB mare. So either taller baby or same size since I'm almost 5'6" with a longer leg.

    Baby would be an eventual replacement for her as she ages - my mount, not for sale. Discipline is upper level dressage.

    Mare has what I'd call an "8 or 9" walk, a "9' trot and a "9" canter. LOTS of suspension, great collection and very good extension. Good temperment albeit can be stubborn. But I'm an AA and I was the rider who has started her and have done most of her training (under guidance of professionals). Once she turned 8 she needed to be put on Regumate which resolved 90% of her temperment issues, she was fine until she turned 8 - that's when she started temperment issues which Regumate resolved for the most part.

    She has a clubby right front hoof, could use a bit more size, has a super neck - long - see her sire Wolfgang (KwPN as she has his neck and short pasterns).

    Bloodlines Wolfgang v. Voltaire (imported from Holland as a baby).

    I don't care about color. Want a bit more size, same or better temperment, FEI ability, registed in a European directory studbook. (It should not be hard getting her accepted into another studbook, she's in NAWPN.) I am not rich but can afford stud fee for most very good stallions (but $5K for Totalis is too rich for me).

    Suggestions?

    If you don't mind trying frozen, my dream stallion is Don Shufro (http://www.yancey-farms.com/champion_stallion.html). I LOVE his offspring.

    If Don Shufro is too expensive (which I totally understand...that's why I didn't breed to him), another few I like are Quaterback (http://www.yancey-farms.com/quarterb...arterback.html), Harmony's Rousseau (http://www.hasslerdressage.com/stallions/rousseau1.html), and Dacaprio (http://www.bridlewoodhanoverians.com/dacaprio.php).

    But those are just one's *I* like! :-)

    Good luck and have fun in your search!

      I like your choices.
      Don Shufro has great bloodlines (Love Donnerhall and Pik Bube) and super performance credentials. A bit pricey (and scarey since he's frozen and my mare is a maiden) but definately a possibility. I love that 176 dressage index! I will email Judy and ask about him and Quaterback (who was on my list of possibilities). With both of them I'd certainly get a chestnut - wonder if I'd get a Liver since my mare is also a Liver Chestnut. You can't ride color (but I love the Liver Chestnuts)!

      Harmony's Rousseau is also nice and I'll have to look at Dacaprio. I had also looked at Freestype and UB-40, although UB-40 has Farn close up, as does my mare... so probably not a good choice.

        Sandy,
        Has your mare been presented to the NAWPN? I thought they had a minimum size acceptable for studbook. Of course, you can breed a foalbook mare.

        I have a well bred Dutch filly who is only 15H at 2.5 yrs so I am interested in options for the smaller mares.

          I would recommend emailing Jeannette Nijhof in Holland to see if she can give you some good suggestions since both Wolfgang and Voltaire stood there. She gave me great suggestions on the two mares I purchased from her (one a Wolfgang granddaughter). Both foals turned out fantastic. PM me for her email address if you would like.

            ????

            If her mare is registered KWPN and imported she can be bred to an approved KWPN or Erkend stallion and receive KWPN papers on the foal. She does not need to present the mare.

              I was just going to say UB40..but then I read this LOL...
              I am no expert when it comes to line breeding and all...but wanted to just let you know that UB4O definitely adds height.
              My colt by him has legs that go on for miles. When he was inspected at GOV, the inspectors told us he would at least hit 16-16.1, and he is out of a 15.1 Arabian mare, and he is the same size as other "full" warmblood babies his age at this point!
              Meghan at ISF is also the nicest person to talk to, before I picked what stallion to use we went through all the stallions on their roster one by one and went through the postives and the negatives. They are great to work with!

                She was presented as a foal to KWPN and as a yearling to NAWPN and I have not followed up since she doesn't meet minimum height (around 15.3) and would be in a lower studbook, so I would have to go through qualifying her for some studbook.

                Since the baby would be registered I'm opening up the stallion possibilities to other than KWPN since she's not yet in a main mare book. I'm also unsure of height qualifications for main mare book in other registeries so it might have to be a lesser book for the mare - but perhaps for a larger foal move up to the "regular" book?

                  As I said, I have a filly who is not likely to make the required size either.
                  You can breed a Foalbook mare to an approved KWPN stallion, tho. There should be a chart showing what kind of papers you would get in the Dutch web site.

                      Thanks - since I'm breeding the mare for riding I really wasn't too worried about the papers - but since mare is registered I do want stallion to also be registered, and of course the "right" fit.

                        How about De Niro or De Noir? Both father and son are tall, have great temperments, are easy to work around and produce great movers. Carol Austin at Superior Equine Sires has them both in stock and De Noir is only $900 and De Niro is $1500.

                          Hi Sandy,
                          Have you checked out Sampson? Dutch bred by Jannie Baard, he has a huge show record here and abroad and his owners are just now working on his approvals. He is 16.2 and produces height, bone and disposition. He is relatively unknown in the US as a sire, but has foals showing in Europe. He is a black/bay.
