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!

  • Gals mount Voice. Tell me everything.

    I know he is a young stallion, and I was really looking for proven, but he seems to fit exactly why I'm looking for. Has anyone seen him in the flesh? tell me what you think about him, and be honest, I can't afford a trip to Germany to go take a peek (much to my dismay ;-)

    I'm particularly looking for good temperment and ridability. Good neck set with family lines that have good neck sets.

    I love his breeding.

    Tell me your thoughs of him and potential mares to put to him. :-) thanks in advance!

    I asked about this guy on this forum a couple weeks ago, and then sent an email requesting conformation shots from the stud farm, had one reply to clarify what I meant by conformation shots (maybe they are called something else in Europe?) , I replied, then never heard back..

      I had found a Confo shot online somewhere... I'll hve to find the link when I get home. Now that I think about it, I'm REALLY hoping it was him! Lol

      I'd send another email. Sometimes they do get lost in space. If they responded to the first, there's no reason for a long delay in a second.

      And do share what you find out. :-) hehe!

        He is DeNiro/Rohdiamont. DeNiro is not particularly know for good neck set however in his offspring. The neck on Voice may be coming from Rohdiamont.

          Super dam line! Not sure of the type of mare he might need as he doesn't have many foals on the ground as far as I know.

            This link lists all the basic stats, including number of breedings and foals on the ground, testing scores, recommendations for type of mares, basic pedigree, etc. for all KWPN dressage stallions. You can access Voice's foal report, testing report, and more. He has close to 400 foals on the ground. There are pictures and videos of a few of his foals in the foal auction archives, www.veulenveilingen.nl. Search on youtube, and you can find some footage of Emmy de Jeu's Voice colt under saddle and moving free.

                  Donella - Voice is a 2002 model, so I think you can assume that he started breeding in 2006.....

                    I guess I am just surprised as I tried to look for offspring videos ect a few months ago and wasn't able to find much. I thought maybe they were just focusing on sport and not so much the breeding.. obviously I was mistaken.

                            I had heard he needs a mare with length of leg. My question to that is, what do they mean by length? My mare has longer legs for her body and they are light and straight, but I wouldn't say she has stilts or legs like Vivaldi (his go on forever! Lol)

                                Siegi - do the Dutch stallions not start breeding until they are 4 y/o?

                                In Germany, they usually start breeding at age 3.

                                  They recommend mares with length in the foreleg - meaning he is a bit short-legged in front, which is very common in most WBs and a holdover from the older style horses/older bloodlines. Length of foreleg is one of the traits seen in "modern" type WBs. I have heard several very knowledgeable breeders say that the Sandro Hit line is one of the few that reliably passes on length of foreleg, so perhaps SH daughters would be good crosses with Voice in that regard.

                                    Bringing this back with the question: has anyone in North America gotten a foal from Voice via frozen? I know Judy Yancey did, but that's the only one I've heard of. TIA.

                                      We have a Voice foal coming in May 2013 out of our Fidertanz/Harvard/Grundstein II mare. The foal has been sold and I could have sold it two other times.

                                        We are expecting a Voice embryo transfer foal in March 2013 from our Westpoint x Rousseau mare. I purchased the semen from Judy Yancey and the quality was very good. The donor was 3 years old at the time of breeding, had never been bred before and conceived with a single dose. She was bred by deep horn insemination using a timed ovulation protocol and the breeding was managed by Dr Robert Foss at Equine Medical Services in Colombia, Missouri. I recently purchased additional Voice semen for future use.
