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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums' policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

      Looks like the mare Scharade has thrown some color previously, but that fella is spectacular! The mare herself is also nice!

        Yep, I saw him a while ago!

        His sire Hirtentanz is well-known for throwing some spectacular Splash

        If you scroll down to 2009 on this page you can see the full brother. Unfortunately it only shows a head shot. You can see what the mare produced in '10 by a different stallion - very plain-looking foal.

        So definitely a large part of this is from Hirtentanz

            Both his sire and dam are obviously splash. The foal is very typical of a homozygous splash. His extreme white came from both sides in this case. Very very cool!

                Yep, the dam is obviously Splash too - both Scharade and Hirtentanz are heterozygous Splash, and when combined, they are 2 for 2 producing a homozygous Splash.

                I can't find a full body picture of the '10 filly Saphira but she doesn't have any white on her face, and I suspect she has little, if any white on her legs. I'm assuming the Summertime sire of that filly is this one http://www.gestuet-haemelschenburg.de/html/e_summe.html who seems to have a teeeeeny spot of white on his LH foot. So no, the color isn't just from Scharade (for the '11 and '09 foals), but she and Hirtentanz obviously combine very well LOL

                      I have a loud Trakehner mare and have researched her pedigree. She has Bend Or and Master Magpie way back.

                        Hertentanz definitely received his splash gene from his dam, who received it from her dam. I'm looking through her ancestor's photos now to see if any others within the pedigree really stand out as splash.

                          Years ago, good breeders would not want any horses with white around the eyes, were breeding for pigment there, that was considered highly undesirable.

                          The problem with white around the eyes in bald faces is that practically all those horses end up with tumors there, sooner or later.
                          Before veterinary science had advanced enough to successfully treat those cancers, it was bad.

                          Here, if a horse has white, the vets will tatoo black around the eye, to help keep it sound as long as possible and those horses are kept with masks on when outside, which is supposed to help some.
                          The tattoo last a few years, then it has to be repeated.
                          I have friends with horses with those problems, sad indeed.

                          If I was breeding, I would be very careful not to follow some kinds of fads, that are contrary to the wellbeing of the horses, like white around the eyes.

                            I do believe the incidence of skin cancer among fair skinned horses is far less than the incidence among grays - so perhaps people should move away from the "fad" of breeding grays too?

                            I am a Paint breeder, I have also seen/ridden/boarded with dozens upon dozens of fair-skinned Paints that are well into their 20's and even 30's. Never once have I met one that had any type of cancer of the eye area.

                            Virtually every aged gray horse I have ever known has suffered from some degree of melanoma however.

                                Sorry, two wrongs still don't make any right.

                                Maybe you are not where it is that common, but in the SW, cancer on horses with white pigment is common and those with white pigment around the eyes a given.

                                Why breed for something that can and in many instances will bring misery to a horse, if we can avoid it?

                                At least a head's up for those that do try to breed for the best possible outcome, even if all of us know there will be something come up even then.

                                Each breeder has to examine if and where they will cut corners to get what they or the market they breed for may desire.

                                Old timers may not have known genetics as well as we do today, but since they had to try to make a living with the mistakes, they knew very well what they wanted and what not to breed for, if they wanted a usable, sound and healthy horse for all it's working years.

                                White around the eyes, be it in horses or cattle, was something they knew was not good and tried to breed only from those with pigment there.

                                  Melanomas in gray horses happen regardless of sun, you cannot prevent them. If the horse lives long enough, he'll have them. Should you stop breeding grays?

                                  I fully believe it to be true that the sun-caused cancer around pink-skinned eyes is a much bigger problem in the SW, and probably in high country areas not even necessarily in the SW. It's probably a good thing to breed for black-skinned eye horses there. But that doesn't mean that other areas of the country, which don't exhibit nearly that degree of problem, should avoid pink-skinned eyes.

                                    That is great for you, but you are lucky. The incidence of melanoma among grays is insanely high. 80% to be exact.

                                      Those same old timers also believed that pink hooves would crumble, blue eyes would go blind (dark skinned or not) and cremellos needed to be instantly culled.

                                      You are also talking about a time when UV protective sheets, fly masks and horse-friendly sunblock was not readily available. All of those things can drastically reduce if not totally eliminate the chance of the horse getting skin cancer.

                                      I would hardly say that putting a foal on the ground that happens to have pink skin is cutting corners. That statement cheapens every breed in which white patterns are/can be a breed trait. Paints, Pintos, Appaloosas, many Saddlebreds, Knabstrubbers etc.

                                      Shall we cull redheads from the human breeding program next?

                                        I know of two paint breeders that quit breeding paints because of that problem.
                                        One was breeding paints before the APHA was even formed and bred some world champion paints.

                                        Just because some old timers said was not so, that doesn't mean all they said was wrong.

                                        My point is that we need to educate people about fads and why and why not they are good, be it HYPP for extra bulk, pigmentless eye rims or any other, so those that do decide to breed or buy from those breeders will have more to go by.

                                        I stand for anyone's right to breed what they want, even when questionable, but also expect any breeder to be responsible and at least acknowledge the issues with what they breed for.
                                        That I see lacking in some breeders.
