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.

Holsteiner breeders, suggestions for stamm 8769 mare

  • Holsteiner breeders, suggestions for stamm 8769 mare

    I don't ordinarily post for suggestions but have been away from breeding for a couple of years having my own baby so am out of the loop a little. Am getting back to my research and would love to know what information is now available. This is a special mare for me and I'd like to add to the list I've already compiled (one that needs drastic amounts more research and editing!).

    Mare: Larosa Z (Louis/Lavado/Silvester/Landgraf), stamm 8769


    Mother line:

    Flavy (Lavado/Silvester/Landgraf), the dam of my mare, was bred by Gerd Magens (she was a pasture mate to Fleur) and produced 3 offspring by Contender in Germany. The first was sold as a jumping horse to Gerd Sosath. The second, a Premium mare, is the dam of the Zangersheide appr'd stallion, Jimy de Pravia (v. Casall), who was also the '05 German Reserve Champion foal. The third is a jumper in the US (although recent results are in the hunter ring). Flavy is maternal sister to the appr'd stallion, Corronell, and the internationally ranked GP horse, Cotton Candy, under Norman Dello Joio. Her dam is a maternal sister to Sir Orion/Big Sir, internationally successful under Mario Deslaurier and Francie Steinwedell, and the 1.6m horse, Century. She was a lovely mare with lots of scope and good technique as well as good, elastic movement. The rest of stamm 8769 speaks for itself and this particular branch is proving successful as well and includes a number of good jumping horses. Her sire, Lavado, was a promising young stallion with high bonits (9 for type) who died during his first month at stud. According to the Holsteiner Verband, Lavado had 27 offspring, 21 of which have entered sport and are very successful. He is listed in the top 25 of the 2003 Holsteiner breeding values with this very small number of offspring.

    Louis (Lord/Ramiro/Colonel), the sire of my mare, is from stamm 776. He does have some Z licensed sons and a number of successful horses in the jumper ring. Breeding to him was a late attempt by the owners at the time to get a foal on the ground out of the mare as she was having some fertility issues and the stallion she was booked to wasn't resulting in a pregnancy.

    While, the pedigree has a fair amount of blood, the mare herself does not show it in the phenotype nor under saddle. She is a large bodied, bigger boned mare. The Zangersheide inspectors said she was not old type but she is not an overly modern type either. Could use longer lines, longer legs (fronts in particular), croup is a bit short, needs to be more uphill, a bit of refinement overall. Is more a push ride but still responsive. Incredible work ethic and heart. Her interior qualities are excellent. Definitely need to add scope, power, and reflexes to her jump, bascule too. She needs more elasticity in her gaits and better articulation of the joints, especially the canter. Also, needs hardiness and dryness of bone for endurance in the sport.

    Obviously, don't want more Landgraf. Might tolerate Lord/Ladykiller in the right place. Temperamentally, she can handle French (she's good in the mouth as well).

    As the foals will likely be for sale marketability is very important. Jump is of high importance of course but I always like to retain, and in this case, improve the movement as well. I would prefer frozen and have an excellent repro vet that we've had great success with.

    Suggestions are welcome and appreciated!

    Dont know if he is available but I think Conteur could give you most of the desired traits. You will add some more Ramiro and have Ladykiller backup through a daughter. He gives big framed horses, long lines, not to heavy and very good movement.
    But do not know if he is being distributed in north america

      Thank you for that suggestion, I've been thinking of a Contender son for sure. What would the benefit of adding more Ramiro be in this case?

      I should also say that I'd like Holsteiner or mostly Holst by pedigree and not neccessarily by registry.

      I am interested in Champion du Lys as well...Any feedback on him?

      I think a rubber ball, athletic type with scope and power would be benefitial.

        Champion du Lys is disappointing in offspring here, underlined by a few breedingvalues:

          Darn! Any information on his production with Holsteiner mares in particular?

            These breedingvalues are from Holsteiner mares only.

              Oops, guess I could have read "Schleswig-Holstein" at the top! Thanks again.

              Conteur seems to have a bit of a dressage focus and I'd really like a jumper stallion that has both competed at the top of the sport and/or has offspring doing the same.

                Conteur had in 2010 375 registred sporthorses in both disciplines in Germany. One was at S level in dressage and 11 in S jumping. The oldest were 8 years old at that time. In his first years he did not cover many mares.

                He was purchased by Tannenhof at the korung and they decided to go with him the dressage way. But genetically he carries a lot of jumper genes.

                  why not, or anyone else who knows, would you be able to help me with the catagories for the breeding values you sent the link for? What does each one stand for in English? I know the first 3 (stallion, registration/life number, date of birth)...

                  Thank you!
