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!

  • Looking to 2012, tobiano stallion withOUT Samber (Tina D)lines?

    Looking for WB stallion, tobiano, jumper/dressage lines that has no Samber(Tina D) blood.
    Don't get me wrong, I like Samber, but he is EVERYWHERE in tobiano WB lines. I'm thinking maybe a Trak. toby would be nice, but anything you know of out there, I am willing to look at. Fresh or frozen is OK, and must be available to the USA. Tell me what is out there. TIA.

      Are you looking to totally eliminate Samber, or just don't want him closer than X generations?

                It was Lord Cosmo's sire, Cosmopolit who died along with Enrico Caruso.

                There are only three WB tobiano lines in the US: Samber line, Lord Cosmo, and there is one mare Mystic Memories (full Trakehner, the only one besides her gelded brother) out of Manjana by Kreshendo but the tobiano came from the dam line and not the sire in her case. http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/mystic+memories

                  Palladio does have the *dreaded* Samber as a grandparent, but you could not ask for a nicer, more talented guy. His colored foals have nice markings, they move really well, and they are mellow like their dad. http://www.crestlinefarm.com/palladiohome.htm (He's not mine, he belongs to a friend)

                  Good luck on your non-Samber search though.

                    Thanks Lateralwork (send me a PM so I know who you are *grin*)...

                    In the interest of having Samber even further back without adding more Tina D we do have a up and coming stallion by Palladio out of a premium Gonzo I mare. This guy is young but so fabulous that we all still stare with our mouths open while he goes sometimes, lol. He's a 3yo this year and we're pretty excited about him and that is putting it mildly. We plan to stand him next year.

                    I think as the generations progress in horse breeding a single ancestor that you don't like can easily be mitigated by tons of up close ancestors that you do like.

                    Good luck with your search!

                      Just out of curiosity, what is "wrong" with the Samber line?

                        nothing is wrong with the Samber line at all but almost 90 % of the Tobiano WBs do have Tina D (Rainbow, Samber and many others) in their pedigree and there needs to be diversity or it will all go into inbreeding too often.

                          What about Rainbow? He isn't Samber at all.

                            I like both of the guys here: http://www.cimlastud.co.uk

                            Gwen, do you know of any other descendants of Mecenas that don't have Samber? It seems like he was bred to some pretty stocky mares, as he appeared very elegant himself.

                            Too bad they are overseas. Maybe in the future?

                              No, but his grandmother, Tina, is Samber's dam

                                Rainbow's pedigree has Tina D in his 3rd generation, but he was a very nice stallion. I have a Rainbow daughter I am leasing with the intention of purchasing some day.

                                Rainbow is deceased (June 2010), but the owner of my Rainbow daughter holds his frozen semen at the equine hospital. I can provide her contact.

                                  The moment it is Tina D in the pedigree it is Rainbow and Samber and many others too. That is why the OP writes without Samber (Tina D) lines.

                                  Samber was a very nice stallion and so was Rainbow, nevertheless they carry both the same bloodline from where the color is coming = Tina D.

                                  Mecenas is dead since long too and I do not know much abouth him as he was not WB approved.

                                    Thanks guys......

                                    I knew you would know of others out there. I have emailed them all.
                                    Samber was a wonderful fella, I would have loved to have owned him. BUT,
                                    his dam, Tina D is in practically every tobiano WB pedigree and I want to keep her out of my pedigrees so that they (my new foals) could later be crossed onto the Tina D bred horses. Versatility is what I am looking for and it is "as scarce as hen's teeth" to quote my grandma Thanks again guys.

                                        This thread made me curious, since I know for example Sempatico is homozygous, which meant two tobiano parents, so I wondered where the 'other' pinto came from besides the side with Samber / Tina D. It looks to have come from the dam's sire http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/ico and goes back to a 1955 tobiano with no name, listed as "Bonte Mare" with no sire/dam listed, who was bred to a Gronigen stallion (a breed I'm not familiar with) resulting in a 1959 tobiano Dutch Warmblood filly "Lucie" (assuming All Breeds is correct, it isn't always.....?)

                                        It seems also that even if there is some repeat of Samber / Tina D, if it is far enough back it wouldn't be so much of a concern? (For example, Precipitation, a nice homozygous tobiano Warmblood stallion, has Tina D twice, but it's four generations back on the sire's side, and five generations back on the dam's side, certainly not close enough to worry me.) http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/precipitation3
