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!

  • KWPN stallion Johnson

    Please tell me all about Johnson as a sire
    Thank you

    Johnson

    He is a super sire! I have many firends with very successful offspring. Nancey Holowasko's Johnson mare went to the FEI Young Horse Championships. His semen is very good and the Nijhof's offer a very nice LFG! His semen is available right in Virginia. I believe that he will need a big mare.

      Big fan of Johnson and his offsrping! We have bred to him 3 times and the 3 resulting foals all full siblings can be seen on our website.

      All 3 foals our from our Keur mare Odette N (Houston x G. Ramiro Z x Marco Polo) won their keurings and were named Champion Young Dressage Horse of their keurings- Draganette P, Elcho P and Fahrenheit P.

      Dragan now 3 years made Ster this year with the KWPN and is going very well undersaddle, she also qualified for the Royal Winter Fair so will be showing in the Cup class in a few weeks. You can see recent photos of her on our facebook page here:
      http://www.facebook.com/PrimaEquestr...0443973&type=1

      All 3 of our Johnson offspring are very similar in type, have fantastic gaits and best of all wonderful minds they are easy, easy to work with and love people.

      Johnson's bloodlines are super Jazz x Flemmingh x Sultan and from what I have seen he is consistant in what he is producing. His foals are correct, uphill and modern types, based on our experience he adds length of leg and his foals have lovely heads they are very pretty but best of all they have great minds.

      His semen is fantastic to work with we bred our mare all 3 times and each time she got in foal using 1 dose of his frozen so really it does not get better than this.

      I would love to breed to him again and will do in the near future.

      FYI- our mare Odette is 16.1 very solid like a tank in her build and Johnson added size, Dragan at 3 is over 16.3 h now, Elcho at 2 is a good 16.2 h and Fahrenheit is only 1 and a normal size for his age. Our mare does produce foals that all have been taller than her but I also think Johnson added some size for sure longer legs.

        http://www.crosiadorefarm.com/Crosia...m/Biscaya.html

        This is our five year old mare Biscaya (Johnson/Argentinus/Goldstern). Biscaya is from the first foal crop of Johnson. I did not breed her, but did meet her dam. VERY old fashioned, and stout. Maybe 15.2 hands. So though Biscaya is not quite 16.0 hands, Johnson did add height and certainly refined. Have to agree with the Prima Equestrian on the temperaments. Biscaya has been easy to work with and loves people. She has three gaits that score 8 and above and always gets comments from the judges on the "good articulation" in her hind leg.

            We have a few Johnsons here in NZ. He seems to have excellent frozen results.

            The young Johnsons I have seen have all been brown with little or no white, lovely heads/necks, a bit of length in the back but with an overall attractive athletic look.

            Of note is the hind end power and very good use of the hock.

            He's a lovely stallion.

              Prima Equestrian, thanks for the positive feedback. This five year old is a very cool filly and has shown great promise for the upper levels. There are a couple shots of your chestnut that look quite similar to this mare running free. Best of luck getting yours started. This one LOVES to show (-:

                Okay...I googled and I couldn't find it. Who sells him in Virginia? I think I have the perfect mare for him and would love to try!

                  Wanted to update this thread about Johnson.

                  We are thrilled to report back that our Draganette P Ster KWPN mare [Johnson x Odette N Keur (Houston x G. Ramiro Z x Marco Polo)] recently won the prestigious 2011 Governor General's Cup Class at the Royal Winter Fair a couple of weeks ago in Toronto.

                  Photos can be seen here:
                  http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...0443973&type=3

                  It has been a few years since a KWPN bred horse won the Cup I think Popeye K was the last KWPN horse to win.

                      Keswick Equine Clinic sells Nijhof semen. I've found them great to deal with, too.
                      They don't have Johnson listed right now, but call and ask if you're interested.

                        Johnson

                        We have had Johnson from Floristan, Jet Set and Tango mares. He has given us good movement and the frozen semen is good quality. I don't think he does well with a medium sized mare. Our yearling Johnson from our Jet Set mare looks like he may be a bit bigger thay we need. Bretton Woods is a Johnson and certinally big enough. We had a nice colt from our 16.2 Floristan mare. Video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nW8Stl1MGbk

                          Slightly OT but I've got a 3/4 blood sister to Johnson (Jazz x Flemmingh) who is so similar to him it is uncanny!

                            Thanks L&L, we too can see Houston in her she looks allot like her dam, Odette N.

                            We just love her and now that she is going under saddle she is showing us how much she likes to work, Johnson gives a super mind.

                                  Prima's Dragenette mare has a great personality and was simply lovely to work with. As a braider it is tough with young stock at new places but this mare was fabulous, with a very grown up temperament.

                                    Has any one found a place to get Johnson frozen semen in the US? We'd like to breed our Ferro/Donnerhall mare to him this year.

                                      Baximilliana (Johnson / Ferro) owned & ridden by Karen Lipp

                                      Karen Lipp recently purchased and imported Baximillana, a 2006 KWPN mare by Johnson out of a Ferro dam. I saw Karen and Bea at the Markel / USEF YH Dressage Training Session in Georgia today. The mare is phenomenal and Karen Lipp rides her beautifully. Baximilliana was the 4 yo national champion in Holland in 2010 and looks like she could do very well in the 6 yo FEI classes in the USA this year.

                                        So, the Dressage ring is now for me - but, when I was in Germany I saw a few of his get - at least two being tried @ the GOV auction - and they were cool, cool horses. The hind leg was great, and boy, holy trot & canter - not a good ride for at least one rider who tried it due to the gaits, but he tried his heart out and was quite patient with her. I did notice he was a bit base-narrow, and a couple of the others were leggy & somewhat narrow. Might keep that in mind. If I was to play in the dressage ring...
