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!

      omare, that's a good question on the Voltaire, and I'm afraid I don't have a good answer. Maybe start a different thread and you might get some knowledgable input from some other breeders. And if you are local, feel free to come visit any time!

            Just wanted to update this since the first few foals have been born. So far he's had 5 hit the ground (first one was a preemie and didn't make it ) and of course, I think they are all beautiful! Three of them are absolutely miniature versions of papa, and one is going to be dark bay or black.

            From what I've seen and been told so far, he is passing along his refined head, kind eye, compact frame, hindquarter structure, and super friendly temperament. The oldest is almost 3 weeks old, and I'm waiting on video to get an idea of movement, but have been told it's excellent.

            There are a few pictures here, and I'll be adding more as I get them from mare owners...

                      while he does look like a very nice, kind stallion - I do have to wonder about his sire and dam-sire - two stallions that are not known to be the easiest? wonder if that will come through in his foals?

                        Well his sire is known to give a fantastic mind and I can say now having two Balou foals this is the case plus I have seen many and they are like dogs with the biggest hearts you will find on any horse each and everyone I have ever touched or seen has been the same way. You could not ask for easier.

                        Our Balou foal Glowstick is by far the most laid back foal we have ever had I swear he would lay on his back for you and do anything you ask of him if only all foals were as easy and he is smart. He would follow us in the house if we let him and I would love to have him in our house if we could I just love being around him, he comes right up to you and will kiss your face.

                        Look at Popeye K he is a son of Voltaire and you could not ask for a better mind he is like a rock as are his foals, I love Voltaire blood! I would not call Popeye K hot nor does he produce hot, his foals are also like big dogs.

                        I suspect that Amazing has a great mind and work ethic given his bloodlines.

                          Could not have said it better....I too was warned about these two bloodlines, but having had him now almost three years, he has been so, so easy. The only thing I would say is he is an overachiever and sometimes tries almost too hard. His disposition is truly that of a puppy dog though.

                            Re doubling up on Voltaire, I would not suggest this, it depends on how far back it is but as a rule this is not seen.

                            Voltaire also crosses very well with direct Nimmerdor blood I have seen this cross used allot and it is very good. We are expecting a Voltaire x Emilion foal soon and we can not wait.

                            Voltaire is great with Balou blood hence the fantastic mind Amazing has as per his owner but many others who have seen or worked with him and you can also tell just look at his huge kind eye the eye tells one allot about a horse!

                            In my opinion, Balou needs some blood and Voltaire addes this very nicely. A mare I once almost purchased was a Voltaire x Indoctro and she was one of the most amazing horses I have ever seen her price was just more than I had to spend at the time otherwise she would be in our barn .

                              I couldn't agree more with this assessment of Popeye K
                              "Look at Popeye K he is a son of Voltaire and you could not ask for a better mind he is like a rock as are his foals, I love Voltaire blood! I would not call Popeye K hot nor does he produce hot, his foals are also like big dogs."
                              I've seen Pops in person sevreal times, and he is a big, loveable puppy dog of a horse. I actually saw him snoozing at the ingate at Wellington.

                              I bred my mare to him and the filly has a great mind. She has been quite easy to work with and will probably be kicking quiet. If I were to fault her temperment I would say she can be a bit obstinate at times but definitely not "hot".

                                Our Amazing filly is wonderful, so pretty, moves great and is very athletic, but also has that brain being mentioned. She never says no and is very easy to work with!! Can't wait to have another.

                                        Im bringing this back to the top b/c I have a question about confirmation.

                                        Potential broodie is a little short in the neck, and someone mentioned they thought Amazing looked like he jumped downhill (?! I dont agree, but Im not solid on confirmation stuff). So my question would be, what would you look for in a mare to breed to him, confirmation wise? What would you stay away from?

                                        I am in LOVE with this stallion, thanks to Worth A Shot Farm. So my daydreams consist of breeding to him one day or owning a baby by him.

                                        thanks in advance!

                                          Awwww, Thank you. Our colt by Amazing has been everything we could have ever asked for. He is well put together and has good conformation, he moves great and has the sweetest personality in the world. I brought him up to groom him this afternoon and he stood for 20 minutes ground tied while I brushed and loved on him.
                                          My mare needed added length of leg and a more substance being a TB. I got both. While my mare has a nicely shaped neck, It is far from long a swan like. Audi has a wonderful neck and I think it is in proportion to the rest of his body. When I look at him he is balanced and pleasing to the eye. Did I mention what a love bug he is too? I am thrilled with him and if I got another just like him I would be happy, although a filly version would send me over the moon. Our mare will be bred back for a 2014 foal by him for a client as it has already be sold. Another bonus is working with Ahna, she is fantastic and went out of her way to get my mare pregnant this year when we encountered a new vet that didn't have a clue about reproductive work. Good luck with your mare
