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!

            Of course I think today I have made the 2012 decisions but need to see foals born in the spring to see how those pairings turned out to finalize.. .. .then of course the day before breeding I'll probably change everything

            Anyway.. here are thoughts to date for breedings 1-3 for each mare, Thankfully everyone took on first try this year:
            1. EMC Donnalja (Don Frederico) Belissimo,Dancier,Brentano
            2. EM Radunja (Rosentau) DeNiro, Londonderry, Contucci
            3. EM Halleluja (His Highness) Dancier,Rotspon, Londonderry
            4. EM Heiress (His Highness) Weltmeyer, Wolkenstein, Rotspon


            Working on my spreadsheet as we speak.. pulling all data together on mares and stallions and hoping deep analysis will point me in the right direction... or as last resort will throw dart at wall with stallion names

              Hillside - June! Ugh! That IS a long wait! Very interested in Livello though. However, the fresh is so easy, it gets good to us! haha!

              hansiska - Oh cool! I am excited to see more Fieldings. We may use him on our TB mare who is very nice but just needs more elasticity and power. She tends to produce tall and leggy, but not heavy. Her Apiro and Amazing fillies are both very modern and elegant. With most our mares being older, we don't have a ton of good frozen candidates anymore, and with the added costs, we want to pick a good one We have another in mind so not sure just yet.

              PP - We haven't quite decided yet on Injoy! Her nicest two foals have been the '11 Harvard and the '10 Furst Impression, so we'll have to talk to those two SO's and see what we can do! Or, we could try something new... she is in foal to Sir Gregory right now for her 7th; and it really does help to have many foals from a mare to see what she is really consistently contributing and so forth. We have her pegged at this point, LOL!

                  Ugh...after the horribly hot summer and drought this year, we HAD 8 mares confirmed in foal, but when the temps soared to 115 degrees for almost a week, our next preg checks resulted in just four mares in foal. At that point, we gave up and decided to just re-set the clock and get everyone ready early.

                  We'll wait to see on a few of the breedings to see how they turn out. The Christ x Dixieland Jazz d/Avalon (Don Principe x Mata Hari/Mannhattan) foal is out of a maiden mare, so definitely want to see that one before deciding if we want to try again. We have one dose left of Christ semen. We bred Persis (Prince Optimus x Gaberdine/Grundstein) to Goldmaker so will wait to see on that one, as well . Last but not least on the wait and see group is the Edelweiss x Aiyanna/Arrian cross. So, three out of four of our foals for 2012 are new crosses and I need to wait in order to make a decision. With that said, these are our definite breedings for 2012:

                  Escudo II x Morticia/Mannhattan for a repeat of Edward Scissorhands d'Avalon. Edward will be presented this year for his stallion inspection.
                  Mannhattan x Faberge/Frohwind - that one is just a tried and true cross that we will just keep on doing. It produced Morticia
                  Edward Scissorhands x Piping Hot/Pablito
                  Edward Scissorhands x Pilar/Pointmaker
                  Goldmaker x LA Jouelle/LA Express

                  Up in the air on:
                  Macy's Rainbow (Mannhattan x Delilah/Vosmaer) but "think" we'll do Edelweiss with her

                  NicNac (Ariadus x Janna II/Loutano) but will probably do Edelweiss or Goldmaker with her.

                  YIKES!!! How'd we get so many mares????

                    Well, you're welcome to come take a look or call to chat. My mare is super elastic but not wildly tall (should finish around 16.1). You may want to take the chance on Fielding's frozen; my mare took on the first try and I don't think that's out of the ordinary for Fielding. Kate is great to work with and I'm sure she'd give you all his stats.

                      Very excited for 2012 breedings!

                      I have two to breed this year, breeding my Section B Welsh mare (Glannant Sunray x Liseter Lovesong) to Hilin Peredur, an imported black Section B Welsh. Should be an outstanding cross, her first foal by Otteridge Foxtrot is coming five and has really turned out to be an incredible pony (great mind, cute mover, brave, awesome with kids). Hoping for a filly this time around as I'd love to have an extension of this mare's bloodlines!

                      Hilin Peredur: http://www.foxmorponies.com/stallion.html

                      Also hoping to breed my Northern Raja thoroughbred daughter to a young Section A Welsh stallion as a test breeding. He's by Pengwyn out of a Cymraeg Rainbeau daughter so very excited to see how he will produce!

                      Ready to go straight through winter and arrive at breeding/foaling season!! Good luck to all this Spring!!

                        Though I am hanging up my spurs for the most part, I will probably try a couple of ETs with Wolkenstanza (Wolkentanz I/ Rohdiamant) - probably one with Fidertanz and the other with either Stedinger, Rousseau or For Compliment. I may also breed Dominique (Don Schufro/ Rohdiamant) if all goes well when she foals her Bellissimo M baby. She has my only foal for next year, as I just sold the ET baby in utero. Last year was so bad, both for foal health and breeding mares back. I will be glad to see the end of the year.

                          I am contemplating selling my Contender mare but if not I think I will breed her to Quite Easy or As di Villagana. She is currently in foal to Catoki for the 3rd time!

                          Her coming 3 yr old daughter by Catoki will go to either Quite Easy or As di Villagana. I have some Diarado but I think the Contender is too close?

                          I want to do an ET with my Donnerhall mare and have been going crazy with this one Suggestions -

                            I'm down to just two broodmares. Not sure if I should put a or a after that lol.

                            My Dutch mare will be bred back to my Friesian Sporthorse stallion Lexington. This match has produced two FSA National Inspection Champions in a row (2010 and 2011, full siblings) and the 2011 USDF/DSHB Southeast Regional Champion "Foals of Current Year".

                            My cremello German Wbld mare will be old enough to breed next year, but I think I'm going to lease her to another breeder, who wants to breed her to my stallion. And if I don't lease her out, I'll breed her to my stallion. So either way, she'll be bred to Lexington

                            That's it for me......

                              Gabardine was from my breeding program, probably 25 years ago or so. It is good to see that those bloodlines are living on at your farm, too. I have two mares that are fourth generation from Gabardine's dam in my program, too! Let me know what you get when she foals.

                                        Not if I beat you to her...and I'm closer
                                        Seriously, she's gorgeous I would love to see her bred for dressage. Certainly will need some small genes though! Donarweiss, Dancier, Florencio, are all on the short side...just sayin

                                          Thank you so much. My website is horribly out of date at the moment. I need to get all the inspection pics up for this year's foals. Have been recovering a messed up finger and have just not had it in me to do the amount of typing that the job needs. Maybe soon.
