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.

      • I haven't decided yet if I am going to breed this year but if we do I am thinking of using the For Compliment semen on our young Londonderry/Rosentau mare.

        I also really like the newly lisenced Viscount and read on Eurodressage yesterday that Carabas is back at stud. Not sure if frozen will be available for either? Carabas is a horse that just blows me away, I really hope frozen becomes available!

        May breed our Rosentau mare back to Wolkentanz II as this years filly was top foal at her Han inspection from a large group.

        Plans always change though as breeding season comes apon us lol.

        • Carabas ist not really back at stud - He is at Celle at the moment so that in the next year breeders can use him via frozen (yeah great plan of the owner, as if the breeders in Germany do frozen).
          But since they freeze him, I guess you can get semen for the US - At least something.

          This stallion is suffering so much mismanagement since he left Tannenhof - what a shame ! Including an owner riding him himself at competitions.

            what about Herald 3 - can you get his frozen anywhere? That would be cool.

            I have also really liked Kalaska de Semilly - he has Night and Day xx as the dam sire and is a Diamant son.
            I could be wrong EquineLVR (it has happened before ) - but he is expensive.
            Thank you for the suggestion of Kalaska - I'll go look!

            • Interesting thread...have been spending way too much time looking at Canadian warmblood stallions of late...isn't the eventing stallion Frenchman in Ontario also a son of Le Tot de Semilly? Although an eventer, he certainly has jumper genes as his dam is by Almé. Now if I could just find the right match for our Zeoliet mare who could be bred either jumper or dressage...

                Julia du Brio (Diamant Rouge II x Kapoc) is the subject of a custom foal contract currently being drafted and awaiting signature- we will make a very exciting announcement regarding her as soon as the ink is dry!

                Ana Bella m2s (Condios x Ekstein) will be bred to Eurocommerce Berlin.

                Stamroos W (Heartbreaker x Ramiro) will be bred to Carolus II.
                There may be a change in the partner of Stamroos W as we are giving serious consideration to Vegas (Voltaire x Joost) in an effort to use fresh rather than frozen in this her first pregnancy.

                The custom foal contract has been signed by a Grand Prix competitor located in Europe who has chosen Julia du Brio ( Diamant Rouge x Kapoc) to produce her next Grand Prix prospect with Quidam de Revel as the sire for a 2013 foal.

                  That's very exciting! I love Julia and the Quidam cross will certainly be one to watch!

                  Our breeding plans for this year:

                  Ava (Voltaire X Topas) to Cassini II for her first foal with us
                  La Sophie (Lacros X Pikoer) back to Cabardino for a full sibling to her 2008 baby

                  • I've finally decided! I've stuck to my rules: GP stallion with GP offspring and a stallion whose offspring keep catching my eye before I know who they were by. And he has to be available chilled in the UK.

                    I'm going to use De Niro. And feeling very excited at the prospect. Here's my mare:

                    • We have some frozen in the tank of
                      Fidertanz, Dauphin, Providence, Don Bosco, Fabriano and Titulus.

                      We have 4 mares available for breeding next year:

                      - our St.Pr. mare by De Niro/Gernegross xx
                      - our CW mostly-jumper-bred mare who's foals are simply gorgeous and so easy-going and perrr-fectt for the amateur market;
                      - our older Weinstein/Graphit/Gotthard/Sender mare that we wish we could have a daughter to keep for the breeding program (good mareline to keep, and that G line) before we retire her as the nanny;
                      - and a very fancy and well put together anglo-trakehner mare by Tycoon (Donaumonarch) out of a premium producer Tb mare approved GOV and ATA.

                      The last 2 mares are MMB with the GOV and will both be presented to the VhW when time will come (we live in Canada).

                      We have some ideas, but aren't fixed yet. If the Fidertanz 2012 baby out of our De Niro mare is great, we might go again witht this cross.

                      For the 3 others, we still hesitating.
                      We were supposed to breed the Tycoon mare with Don Bosco last summer, but after 3 other mares coming back pregnant in less than a month, we decided it was enough. We'll probably go ahead with DB for her if she's not sold by then (she's on the market).
                      The CW mare will probably go to Titulus, as she is a granddaughter to the trakehner jumper Poprad, we could have a rock solid jumper there, "strong enough for the professionnal rider, but designed for the amateur".
                      And for my G line mare, I'm still not fixed between Dauphin, and Fabriano (I know, two very different sires). I would like to keep the dual talent the mare has, so Fabriano would be a good pick plus, my dream is to have a Fabriano mare in my broodmare band. Then... I discovered Dauphin... And his get. And now... I think Dauphin would cross great with the mare, who needs some refinement, and type. The mare is older, she does not have 10 foals in front of her... And who knows how many tries it will take to get not only that filly, but that broodmare prospect filly!

                      I Love to read this thread. Ahhhh. Lucky to all of you who have been able to make their choice already!

                      • Hi Spike.
                        Some great options! My 2 cents (and worth about that) ... Fidertanz x DeNiro is a known nick - could be pretty exciting.
                        Not knowing your mares, I might be more inclined to put your G-line gal with Dauphin, unless she is quite modern, in which case Fabriano would be good. Good semen too, I believe.

                        • Thanks Kathleen! I think you have one of the best breeding program in Canada, so your 2cents indeed worth something for me!
                          I believe too that Dauphin would be good for that mare. Funny enough we are expecting a Dauphin foal in 2012 but from a completely different type of mare (custom foal for a petite rider who is tired of big wb's). But Dauphin's owner (Maxine, such a nice and knowledgeable woman) spoke to me about the good results obtained on heavier mares just like mine by using Dauphin. And I like what I see.

                          So now I guess I have to slowly start to shop for an Hanoverian mare that would fit Fabriano :P

                          Our De Niro mare is in foal right now to Fidertanz (may 2012!!). The plan is probably to repeat the cross if the baby is up to our expectations.

                          • Bought my semen today!

                            I decided on Hohenstein for my mare EM Dorfblume (Davignon-Matcho-garibaldi). I am super excited! Hope the breeding is a success and results in a keeper filly as my mare is nearing her upper teen years and I will need a replacement! I have always wanted to breed her to Hohenstein but previously his frozen semen was not successful. They have upped the breeding dose from four to eight straws and now have good rates....so here's hoping!!

                            If she dosen't take frozen my fresh backup will be either Rousseau or Wolkentanz II (she has had colts by both...the Rousseau now coming 3 is getting ready to go under saddle and should be quite nice. The Wolkentanz only a weanling but very correct).

                            I am so looking forward to next year now!!

                                • VERY difficult to plan for 2012 with two maiden mares - have to see what they put on the ground (one hopes!) crossed to the stallion bred to (the same stallion ) to determine what traits THEY carry forward. So my selections will be IN 2012 -
