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.

  • Feuertanzer Trakehner Stallion

    Hi there.I have the opportunity to maybe purchase some Feuertanzer frozen semen here in NZ. The mare is a full Trakehner. What Im wondering is if anyone on here has foals and if anyone has had experience with using frozen semen from him.Any feedback would be much appreciated.

  • #2
    No foals from him, but there are a TON of them around as it was given away as a free stud fee. I can't help you with semen quality, but can tell you the foals look nothing alike--they really seem to take after the mare. So, he's a good stallion if you want the baby to be like the mare.

      What Beentheredonethat said - also he had lost his ATA approval as he did not complete his performance requirements in time (I believe this was due to an injury). I think he was only approved CTS?? Or maybe also Canadian Warmblood?

        I have a coming 4 year old by him - I'll echo what has been said already in that his offspring take after the mare in looks, structure, etc. I have to say though that even though my broodmare isn't exactly the prettiest (she's a more masculine looking TB) her son is an improvement in movement and build. Feuertanzer added a more uphill build.
        So I would say that if you want to improve what you already have in your mare, then he's a good choice. I bred while he was still alive, so I can't speak to his frozen semen quality though.
        There are a couple of pics of my gelding on my website - PM me if you want the link since I'm not sure if it's cool with the Mods if I post it here
        Good luck!

          How strange - I have a Feuerfoal and have seen many others. From what I have seen he stamps his get.....YMMV

          He added height/length of leg and a beautiful head and neck to my mare (an APHA mare). I started the filly late last year and she is smart, brave and athletic.

          He has a couple of approved daughters, one of whom is doing well eventing. Owners of his offspring seem to be uniformly happy with what he produced from a wide variety of mares.

          He was inspected with the 4th highest scores ever with the ATA but was unable to fulfill his performance requirements after getting cast in a stall and being unable to be ridden again.

            Like Molly, all the ones I have seen look very much like F himself. And I've really liked every one I've seen.

            There are a few other threads here where lots of folks showed off their F kids - maybe you can find those

              I bred and have 2

              And both are a definite improvement on the dam (TB). The oldest looks and moves like a pure wb and his neck is on both babies! She won on the line as a hunter and was 5th in our zone as a yearling, before tangling with my fence and injuring her hock. She was bred to a connemara so the Feuer grandbaby I have is a connemara/tb/trak who is incredible!

              The full sister looks like dad, moves a bit more like mom but both have a great jump, great temperment and incredible conformation.

                I am with those who feel that Feuertanzer stamped his foals. Ours is out of a Skipper W bred QH mare and very few would ever guess the foal is part Quarter Horse! We used fresh not frozen, so no help there.

                  Thanks so much for your replies. TwoDreamRides, Fuervogel is a stunner. Can I ask why he was a free stud? Why would they do that?

                    To be honest, I don't remember the exact details but it went something like this:

                    He was injured before completing his performance requirements, so they hoped to have him meet requirements through an alternate method of foal approvals. I think he had to have x number of foals of x scores. I guess to greaten the chances of this, they made his breedings "free". The stud fee itself was free, but you still paid a collection fee.

                      I really need to get some recent pictures of my mare, but here's my Feuertanzer daughter as a filly- http://pets.webshots.com/photo/25348...00789832gIKEbM

                      She looks a lot like her mother, but there was definitely some neck/topline improvement which is an area I think a lot of the Feuertanzer offspring are strong in.

                        I had two out of the same mare, and they were NOTHING alike other than they were both HUGE. Mare was 16.2h Irish Sporthorse, filly was huge and fairly square in build, colt is huge but more of a horizontally built hunter type like mom. Filly was very mature at 4, colt has been slow to get it together.

                          A good friend here in NZ used Feuertanzer frozen a few years back.

                          The foal is the spitting image of the dam (a Trak by Falkensee). Pretty, compact, and sweet.

                          Maybe you know this horse already?

                            No I dont know her (very nice by the way) but I have a Falkensee myself and the mare is also a Falkensee (full sister to mine) that would go to the stallion.

                                  I remember what TwoDreamRides remembers . . . he was a lovely young stallion with high marks & an unfortunate injury which prevented him getting the full approval. If you are breeding future breeding stock, it might not be a good choice. If you are breeding for a performance gelding or mare, it could be a very good choice.

                                  But like the others, I don't know the quality of his frozen semen. I just know when I had a Trakehner mare & he was first approved, he was on my stallion short list.

                                    I think what makes it hard to evaluate about this stallion is that he was bred to EVERYTHING. QH's, Arabs, TB's, Drafts, etc.. you name it. I would like to think that he was put on more than a couple Warmblood mares. He was not a bad looking horse, I have a video around here somewhere. I've seen some "nice" ones, not brilliant, but nice. He was just bred to such a crazy variety of mares, I think it can make it a little tricky to evaluate him. Not many other WB stallions are bred as frequently to so many types of mares.

                                      He was a very attractive stallion, stood down the road from here and had very good semen that froze well. I actually froze some and it is good.

                                        I have a 7 year old Feuertanzer gelding out of an Arab mare from before the free breedings. His mother was rather high strung, and he turned out to be a little too much riding horse for me, but is much calmer than his mother. Just gelded him last year, because up till that time, he lived out as a stallion with other horses and never had any issues (gelded him to reduce "distractions" during training). Other than that, he was exactly what I was hoping for, he has excellent movement for dressage, and LOVES to jump. My trainer is hoping to compete with him in 5 bar this year. You can see pics of him at: http://picasaweb.google.com/dawnhallock/Baby The pics of the little boy leading him around were of my 4 year old nephew leading him around when he was a 5 year old stallion. That's how well-mannered he was on the ground.
