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.

    If you're talking about the Hanoverian stallion Fabriano standing at Celle, I used his semen 5-6 years ago which resulted in a one dose pregnancy and know of plenty of others with similar success.

      I LOVE this stallion!! His semen is known for being quite good. I would request the doses be pulled from an older stock if possible....this guy is getting pretty old, so he may not be as fertile as in years past.

      But he has a history of have wonderful semen.

        Bought two doses of Fabriano semen late last summer from one of the routine semen brokers.

        Two mares in foal.

        First is about 80d in foal carrying her own. Last ultrasound was early last week. Second foal is an ET being carried by a surrogate. That mare is 62d in foal. Last checked by ultrasound about d50.

        Semen came as eight 0.5ml straws/dose. Straws dated 01.11.99, which I believe is 1.November.99

        Semen looked good under the scope.

          ohhh... I love fabriano. I have a fabuleux and he's stunning. I fell in love with fabriano on fabuleux's stallion video, it's because of him that I decided to breed to fabuleux. Wonderful horse.

            I have doses of Fabriano I was planning on using on one of my mares in 2011, but we decided to wait until next year. We chose Fabriano for some reasons for this mare, but I was wondering if he would contribute to add length of legs or not (as I have another mare in head in the case I have semen left and she would benefit from that).

            I'd be curious to hear, from those who used him, what he has improved on the mares, and why you've chose him in the first place. And what is the general consensus about wich lines crosses best with him.

              Nobody to answer? Those of you who have bred with him. What was your mare's breeding? What were you looking to improve on her?

                I have Fabriano semen from 2008 and still have not used but plan to in future. I heard from a reliable source he adds length to the back. I plan to send this person a picture of my intended mare to make sure he feels they will be good match. I also have heard semen is great. I intend to use him on a Don Frederico mare o/o Rosentau/Weltmeyer dam.

                  I bought 4 doses in 2004. Did the timed insemination protocol at NBC with the mare in residence for 3 cycles. Nada. Brought her home, used a dose of Waldaire post ov and she was in foal. She'd always been an easy breeder, so we just chalked it up to a 'not to be' bloodline combination. FWIW.

                    From a long time ago

                    I remember seeing his stallion ads in the mid-90s. I always thought he was superb....but I never got around breeding to him, because I am a Holsteiner breeder.

                      I have ridden/known one Fabriano that is trained/competing to GP, he is very willing to ride, quirky to handle on the ground but his under saddle rideability and willingness "makes up" for it. He is not huge 16.1, very east trot to sit, good walk and canter. He could have used a stronger/more developed hind end.

                        Our 2012 foals by Fabriano have arrived.

                        The first foal is a colt o/o a Thoroughbred mare. He is sociable and exuberant (translation: sometimes he has trouble containing his enthusiasm). He is quickly learning acceptable and unacceptable behavior. At 3 1/2 weeks, this guy is an eye appealing, athletic, bundle of energy.

                        The second foal is a filly out of a Londonderry/Santano/Grandduell mare via embryo transfer to a surrogate. Five days old today. She is a long legged, elegant girl. Her personality is still developing, but to date she meets human visitors quietly and confidently. Naturally uphill, she departs with hindquarters engaged and forehand elevated. She's still working on what to do with those legs once she gets up to speed.

                        Both foals will be registered AHS.

                          One of the most fertile stallions I know. His semen has always been and still is of super quality. Next to Rascalino it should range under miracle drug *lol* as both stallions are known to get virtually everything pregnant. My guess is there must be more to these than plain semen-cell physiognomy. I suspect their additional equipment (e.g. chemistry) must be very special as it seems to be far less irritating than other semen even when used in extender or post thawing.
                          Very nice stallion btw

                            OMG 4MPF. I want her!! She is lovely. And I love londonderry too! So imagine. Drolling.

                            I have some doses of Fabriano too. I was supposed to breed one of my mare to him but finally I think Dauphin will be a better cross for her (we want to keep a filly). Now I need to find the perfect mare to use my Fabriano semen. Next year perhaps!

                              A friend of ours split a Fabriano dose, bred, got an embryo and recipient hung onto it. Used the second half and got an additional pregnancy so I'd say Fabriano semen is excellent quality.

                              Good luck!!

                                Spike - thank you. I think she will be special. Time will tell. Best of luck with the Dauphin cross.

                                  Bumping this thread up.

                                  I still have my doses of Fabriano, and one mare that might suit him but I am not sure yet. For those who have met the old man in person, seen him undersaddle when he was younger, or for those who have had foals from him, would you mind if I PM you to discuss more what you think he reliably passes on in terms of conformation (the good and the less good) and what he improves in gaits? The mare I am looking to breed to him if we go ahead and breed her this year via frozen instead of fresh (with Sir Gregory), is overall very nicely put together, strong back, good topline, very nice neck and neckset, lots of knee action, good use of hindquarters in canter especially. She is kind, good natured, sometimes a bit worried but not the spooky kind. She was easy undersaddle, her first foal was a GOV premium. She would need a bit of a longer front legs, and more swing in her gaits, longer stride at the trot. Good strong feet would be welcome too. Want to produce an amateur friendly horse, with no limits regarding the potential for upper level. Mare is Dormello x Manstein x Waldsee. She got an overall 7.2 at her mare inspection in Germany, but was never performance tested. She got some 8 for her type and frame. We want to present her to Hanoverian mare inspection in Ontario in 2013. http://www.autumnsstables.com/eng/donna_magica.html
