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!

  • Have you made your 2012 breeding decisions?

    I know it is a bit early, but I bet some of you have already decided on your breeding plans for the coming year! I love reading about the planned breedings each year, so if you've decided, please share!
    I'm starting some of my mares under lights in a few days, so you know breeding season is just around the corner...
    Already excited about our 2016 foals! Expecting babies by Indoctro, Diamant de Semilly, Zirocco Blue and Calido!

    I'm fairly certain I'm going with DeNiro for my Rubinstein mare. She has a 2003 DeNiro daughter who is already going PSG with her ammy owner.

    Although if she double ovulates I'll use Hohenstein who is already in the tank. Just waiting on the perfect situation for him.

      Although my mare isn't due to foal until June, I plan to breed her to Blue Hors Don Romantic in 2012.

      Here is the lovely gal:

        I've already sent in my breeding contracts for my two coming three year old fillies.
        My Fidertanz/Schampus filly is being bred to Rubignon and my Rosenthal/Stedinger filly to Solos Lantinus. I'm looking forward to my 2013 foals.

          Trinity, I love BH Don Romantic. Lovely mare! That should be a great cross. I have a dose in my tank waiting for the right mare for him. Looking forward to seeing your foal.

              Tenative plans are:
              SPS Wega X Balou Du Rouet
              Perpetua NHF X Don Alfredo
              Legacy X Balt'Amour
              Romancing Rio X ?? - maybe back to Redwine or maybe someone from my frozen supply. Depends on how things work out for the others as she will be the last one bred.

                yes and No...LOL

                I have booked my black and white filly Simplicity (Sempatico x NoisettexNocturne)
                to Freestyle.
                Foal will be black or Black and white tobiano.
                I am up in the air with my other young mare who is homozygous for tobiano.
                She is also by Sempatico out of a lovely Canadian Pinto mare of mostly TB and Arabian blood with a small dab of racing paint.
                I am pondering at the moment....the homozygous stallion I was considering got hurt at this years 70 day test and couldn't finish. He will go back next year his owner says...but for this year I am still pondering.

                    Sort of... One maiden filly will depend on if the stallion I want will be available for me next year (not saying for sure until I know for sure - which will possibly be after she is preg lol). Pennant's Valentine will more than likely go back to my boy (Tate) after she foals out this Tate foal. If the first filly is not bred and if I can bring myself to stop riding her, my filly Emerald Fire (Emma) will possibly be bred - the question is to whom? Either my boy, or I have a dose of Zauberklang in the tank that may have her name on it.... I have a feeling that 2012, will be one of those years that I end up with certain mares bred and they may be to surprise last min decisions LOL.

                      My coming three year old Ellamieka (Corland x Darco x Indoctro) is still in Erupoe, she will be bred to either Brugal VDL (Indorado x Guidam), Cardento or Zirocco Blue.

                      Here in Canada, I am leaning towards Zapatero VDL for my mare Cornetta (Cornet Obolensky x Pilot)... she isn't due until the beginning of June, so I still have plenty of time to change my mind.

                          Plans are on the drawing board already-

                          Kaiserin (Kaiser de la Cour x Lantaan) is under contract for a custom foal by CQuito.

                          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.

                          Oh my, that is three grays out of four! Luckily Julia's intended is NOT gray- there's a clue!

                          We have put a ceiling of four on the number of foals in 2013. Monica is agitating for wiggle room on the number as two have already been sold. However, sold or not, the amount of work and care is the same so I am holding firm...so far! [edit]

                          Remaining in training are Ahsianita with John Brown , Ultra-niki and Ahme with Monica and Bijin in Europe. Sakura Hill Czola may remain open although we fully expect someone to snap her up as a custom foal dam...her foals are all highly sought after and, when not sold in utero as is the case with her 2012 foal, are snapped up by 2 months of age.

                                Let's see. We keep thinking it is finalized, but then we keep seeing other stallions we like or changing our minds..... Discussing stallions is just such fun which, I think, confirms our status as geeks....hmmmm

                                So:
                                Chairman x Comet Swinger again
                                Primmore's Pioneer x Mascara again
                                Rythm and Blues x Chequer Account
                                Clare De Lune SE x In Reality
                                Loerke x Tickle Me Too
                                Royal Alyance x Irish Lace
                                Royal Alyance x Wheres My Nurse
                                Wing Man x Fashion Plate
                                Wing Man x Midnight Blue
                                Wing Man x Luna

                                I LOVE Wing Man's breeding, and he is a lovely mover and a joy to ride, but we are still not sure he can get anyone pregnant..... Last try this spring after he has been off the track a couple years.... So, if he does not work out and gets gelded, possibly the WB mares to A Fine Romance or Aaron's Gold or or or......

                                Undecided:
                                Mabelino, maybe to Aly
                                Pazia ZRF (strongly considering Machno Carwyn, you have to watch him jump, it just makes you smile)
                                Hushabye Lady
                                My Martina - has been losing foals at around 4 months so only if we can afford to do embryo transfer.....

                                We would also love to get Ladykiller through a female line into our breeding program so that's a consideration also. Ahhh, I LOVE this part!!! Any recommendations, of course, welcome. We are breeding for CCI**** eventers.

                                And, GOD KNOWS, how did we acquire that many broodmares...... INSANITY!!

                                Here's to safe 2012 breedings and healthy 2013 foals!!

                                  Machno Carwyn is AWESOME! You've got to use him. :nod:

                                  Welsh bloodlines are so overlooked, especially here in the UK. (I am one of the guilty parties too having never used a drop of Welsh blood) Yet the Section As are widely used in German Riding Ponies because of their exceptional movement and Machno Carwyn is one of the best showjumping ponies there has ever been. If I had a good TB mare I'd use Carwyn and also Miley who is a coloured of uncertain breeding but he's sired GP dressage horses and several 3*** eventers.

                                    Aside from that, the rest of you have some nice sounding foals in the planning stages.

                                        Machno Carwyn is AWESOME! You've got to use him.
                                        Thanks so much! So nice to get feedback about a potential stallion from someone in the know!

                                        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!!
