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!

  • Sons of Heraldik

    Does anyone have any experience of stallion sons of Heraldik?

    I've found Herald 3
    http://www.wisbecq.eu/_html/site.php...partie=etalons

    and Hosco (although I'm not entirely sure where he is standing)
    http://www.gestuet-marienhof.de/erfolgspferde.html

    Has anyone seen these stallions or any other Heraldik sons? Has anyone used them? Seen any offspring? I'd be very grateful for any information about them at all.

    Have you ever talked to Baudouin van den Brande at www.harasdesconcessions.be?

    He might have some useful insights for you - and I think you'd enjoy his stallion line up too!

      Hunter is here in the United States owned by wendy Webster. You can see his information on the AHHA webpage in the stallion directory.

          Hi Ronda, I haven't got as far as talking to stallion owners yet as this would be for 2012, so long distance forward planning. I do like the idea of Herald 3 but his stud fee is rather eye watering. Having said that in the scheme of things it is a small amount of money compared with keeping and competing a horse isn't it?

          Raffey I looked at Hunter and found he was in the US and had to discount him as I'm in the UK! I'd be very interested to hear more about him though. How is he doing in competition and as a sire?

              I really like the pedigree of Hosco, direct dam line back to Vase who was almost certainly granddam and great granddam of Capitol.

              http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/inde...mall_font=1&l=

              He is also virtually 75% TB so has lots of blood which is what I am looking for. If I did decide to find out more is it OK to phone the Holstein Verband in Germany to find out where he is standing? They list him as being at Klein Offenseth which was part of Stall Hell. Klein Offenseth don't list him on their stallion rota and I believe the Hell stallions were sold to Paul Schockemohle???

                There is frozen from Hunter in Europe. I know Wendy said she froze some and sent it back. You may want to call her. His motherline is special.

                  If Hunter is in the USA, is he occasionally available fresh?
                  I had never heard of him before this thread.

                    I know he hasn't been due to his show schedule but I think he might be now. His Alcatraz / Lord mothers from stamm 3317 are top producers.

                      The last time I talked to the owner, she said that Hunter is only available frozen. His cooled doesn't ship well at all.

                        Hunter hasn't been available fresh in the past due to longevity of his sperm. HOWEVER, he freezes and has confirmed pregnancies with frozen.

                          Mighty Magic's dam is by Heraldik.

                          And he is by Mythens....so you get to heavy hitters in one stallion And he is 7/8ths TB.....

                          http://www.superiorequinesires.com/s...htymagic.shtml

                          I've only seen one offspring by him...and he looked nice. Well conformed. Sire really stamped him with his head.

                            Damsire of a 2007 HOL named Contano, by Coriano Z (HOL). Contano was a premium stallion--Premiehengst.

                            Damsire of Cress (HOL).

                            Damsire of a 2006 Cornet Obolensky son named Black Jack who is Westfalian and Rheinlander approved.

                            Damsire of a De Niro line BaWu 2007 approved son named De Noir.

                            Damsire of the 2009 reserve champion for Bavaria who is approved by Bavaria, Westfalia and the Rheinland--FS Delamanga. Topside is Donnerhall and Rubenstein.

                            Damsire of Cassillio, by Cassini I who is in Poland and approved there.

                            That's all the intact Heraldiks that I've found so far. If he can keep going, he might found his own H line in Germany. There are more with him as damsire, but these looked particularly interesting.

                            There's a 2004 Butt-bred, Heraldik-sired eventer (gelding) named Andorik. I wonder if he's in the International pipeline. FEI says he did some CIC 1*s with a Danish rider. He didn't do so well, but he's young yet.

                              viney, you are exactly right, and there are moves afoot to ensure that happens.

                              i'm not going to say much, but it is impossible to look too far without this horse hitting you in the face repeatedly from the data.

                              whoever asked the initial question is, to me, barking up the right tree. i don't think the production of heraldik, his sons nor his daughters looks like it is about to stop showing up. if anything, his influence appears to be spreading more through the disciplines with successive generations.

                                What about these guys - Royaldik and Meraldik? They are not Heraldik sons, but rather are out of his full sister Herka.

                                Royaldik is by Royal Diamond, and Meraldik is by Munchhausen (v. Hohenstein I). I would think the addition of the dressage blood would help enhance gaits and rideability. Yes/no?

                                  Funny this thread popped up because I am also looking at Heraldik sons for one of my Irish mares.

                                  Did anyone ever track down current contact info for Herald 3? It was rumoured that he had been imported to North America a while back. He seems to have the most blood at 72% of Herald 3, Hunter, and Hyperion.

                                    Viney Fleidergeist died a few years ago while still young and I haven't been able to find out if any frozen was ever taken from him. Not that I could use frozen on my mare but it would be good to know about for future reference.

                                    Mighty Magic is nice but I'd like Heraldik closer up and ideally direct male line if I'm going to do this.

                                    Royaldik is a nice stallion but sadly a bit of a jump killer which isn't entirely surprising when you look at Royal Diamond's bloodlines. Meraldik is a stallion I haven't seen other than in video and he looks nice but again I'm concerned that he won't have enough jump. If only Herka had been put to Sixtus or Kostolany instead of Munchhausen. Now THAT would have been a stallion!

                                    Herald 3 stands in France. He looks very impressive but I do find his stud fee eye wateringly high for an unproven sire.

                                    Kempinski isn't listed on the Trakehner Verband site. I wonder what happened to him?

                                    There are some mouthwatering mares on the Butts website:

                                    "Angara (Heraldik xx x Kronenkranich xx), Amelie (Heraldik xx x Schostakovich xx), M.Applebee (Markus Deak xx x Heraldik xx) and also H.Lacey (Heraldik xx x Star Regent xx) the full blood sister to Euroridings Butts Leon."

                                    *drool*!

                                        yes, was apparently at wef in gp village. i forget the young rider's name (and also whether the horse had a name change) but they were doing well. was in the barn of ashland stables, the folks who own hickstead.

                                        herald has been a super performer (super league etc) and also has a good motherline (4294). while hunter never had the same performance opportunities, hunter's is also a super motherline (3317) and hunter stands in a superior type. regarding the stam, hunter's direct family (mother and grandmother) have been noted producers, not just the stam in general.
