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!

      Breeding for ponies, of course and two breedings for sure at this point:

      Contucci daughter (maiden) to my Welsh stallion

      Welsh mare (Weser-Ems) to Kathy St. Martin's Belefonte

      I also have my older Weltstern daughter (now 18) but with her age, have not decided for sure whether to breed her to an outside stallion or my Welsh stallion yet.

        We bought our Haflinger mare, Pazia, fat and unridden out of a pasture as an 8 year old. She turned out to be a fabulous jumper (3'9" with ease and she stands 13.2 hands) who impressed Kim Severson and Jim Wofford in clinics SO she is the only pony we breed basically because we LOVE her. Thus, we are completely biased and have no ability to make sane decisions based on data when it comes to breeding her......Because she is a Haflinger, we are not looking obviously to line breed, etc., etc. , we are just having fun. Thanks for your input. Will check out Miley also!!

        Hey I rode a Halflinger gelding over in Germany when I was a kid that could (still to this day) out jump any horse I've ever ridden/owned. They can be awesome little things! And he LOVED it - he would jump just for the sheer joy of it all and never refused anything you put in front of him. He also routinely jumped out of his pasture when he had had enough of being outside (5' fences) up until he was pushing 30 years old...

              Looks like a lot on very nice babies in the making!

              Only 2 being bred in 2012 for me, both Hanoverian babies.

              Wuemmestern/Wigwam mare to Escudo II
              AHS approved Arabian mare to Escudo II

              Seriously hoping for a filly from the Wuemmestern mare to keep, Tuney's getting up there in age.

                  Ha! Ha! Maybe that is a Haflinger thing! We have to keep our mare in our stallion pen because she gets out of (under, over, or through) EVERYTHING else. My favorite is when she has managed to let herself out of her paddock during the day to eat grass and then somehow gotten herself back in and shut the door behind her right before dinner which she knows we feed in her paddock..... Her yearling gelding by Voyager seems to have inherited the same Houdini abilities....

                  I once had an exercise set up for an Intermediate horse - 3'9" skinny verticle with 3 bending strides to a 3'9" narrow corner. Was teaching a training level student riding Pazia, our Haflinger mare, and asked her to jump an exercise NEXT to that one. Well, the student misunderstood, and Pazia cruised through the bending corner line...... She is a BLAST to own. I am too tall for her but GREATLY enjoy watching her go!

                      I'll probably change my mind for some, but here's the current plan:

                      Papillon (Ariadus-Cheenook) to Coconut Grove

                      Carola (Carolus I-Latino) to Epsom Gesmeray

                      Neah Bay (Final Pool-And Behold) to Amaretto D'Arco

                      Select Dancer (Well Selected-Fire Dancer) to Alligator Fontaine

                      And the new girl, Bold Starlet (Bold Executive-Akureyri) either to Far West or Fidelio

                      Pik's Pandora and Cayah Bay will get the year off

                        I have 2013 figured out (although it is subject to change).

                        No one to breed this year, unless I buy a horse...

                            So far my tentative plans are:

                            My Londonderry mare Leilani is probably going to Rascalino
                            My buckskin Swedish Warmblood mare Clair de Lune is going to Heinrich Heine

                            Though I have backup breedings to Freestyle and Sagnol if my frozen breedings don't go according to plan, lol ;-)

                              not yet....and I'm really struggling with it. I'm only breeding two mares so you wouldn't think this would be so hard.


                              I have a breeding to Wonderboy that I bought in a benefit fundraiser. I'm crossing him with Wrania (should be a jumper/eventer). But I need a back up choice for her.


                              And NO idea about who to cross with Zoe.

                              Suggestions for her would be welcome. She is currently in foal to Donarweiss.

                                Hmm . . .

                                Bosanova NSN Elite, (Ferro x Wanroij) back to Totilas most likely. Her foal is due early May.

                                Never Say Never Keur Pref (Wanroij x Milkie XX) back to Banderas for a third time, most likely. Loved the 2010 result, expecting a full sibling in 2012.

                                Not sure about Rhumba (Idocus x Wanroij). Her coming 2012 foal is a repeat breeding to Sir Gregory. Loved this year's result! But Sir G may be staying in the U.S. making it difficult to get fresh. I have opted for fresh cooled for my older girls. Rhumba usually twin ovulates, but her heats are silent and require a lot of monitoring for fresh, let alone frozen. I do have other frozen on hand, so will ponder my choices.

                                      That's my biggest problem.....with her (she showed dressage before getting an infection that ended her career) and her pedigree, I should shoot for dressage. And that is what I did for her 2012 foal....but I'm an event rider and given this mare, I'm pretty sure I could get a very nice event prospect if I cross her with a TB or sire with a lot of blood. But for quicker re-sale purposes, I'm probably better off breeding for dressage. (I'm in a great area for either dressage or eventing).

                                      So I'm making two lists for her....one eventer sires....one dressage.

                                      She does great with frozen too...just to add more to choose from...ugh.

                                      I think the Donarweiss foal will be quite nice...but I want to see how that one turns out before repeating the cross.

                                        And that is what I did for her 2012 foal....but I'm an event rider and given this mare, I'm pretty sure I could get a very nice event prospect if I cross her with a TB or sire with a lot of blood. But for quicker re-sale purposes, I'm probably better off breeding for dressage. (I'm in a great area for either dressage or eventing).
                                        Go for eventing!!!! Actually, I suppose I should encourage you to breed for dressage since we breed for eventing, but SO many people breed for dressage, and eventing babies are so FUN (when they are not destroying themselves or others)! Just my EXCEEDINGLY biased opinion!!!
