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.

  • Don Frederic

    Did anyone get to see Don Frederic (Don Frederico / Wolkentanz) at the 2012 Schockemohle stallion show? I really like what I see in the video. Supple, elastic. Note: I think they picked a jumper rider to show him off.

    I keep trying to tell myself...Only a 3 year old stallion....must wait to see what he produces. But I really like him :-).

      I can tell you maybe more as I know the damline a bit.

      He has a fullbrother licensed in Westfalen a few years ago as a premium stallion that was than in Nijhof's hands.

      He comes from the same damline as Lancet and Argentan.

      He is bred:
      Don Frederico - Wolkentanz - Liberty M - Wenzel - Absatz - Valentino xx.
      I know already the Wenzel. She herself was not too huge, but a very tough cookie. A lot of foals like 15 or so. Her MPT was outstanding with 9's and 10's as far as I know. Her Liberty M daughter was a very tall chestnut and had two Wolkentanz daughters and a Royal Diamond for her german breeders before she was sold with the RD filly first to Canada than to the US. I know who had her first, but than lost track of her. I hope she is in the hand of breeders who know what they have there ! same for her RD daughter.
      The Wolkentanz daughters that stayed in Germany both have outstanding movement just like their mom. One got States Premium, both had a very very good MPT.
      Daughters out of those two Wolkentanz mares received SPS and won their classes at the mare shows (I am not sure but maybe one won the huge show locally a few years ago - would need to look that up).

      What I can say for sure big movement is secured in that direct family ! I have seen them a lot of times as the breeder used to be one of my best friends and I was at their farm very very often, so have seen them all until a few years ago. I have not seen him as a foal thoug I think.

      If I would dig into information I could even tell you more about show results under saddle, but that would need more time.

        Wow, talk about a breathtaking mover! Everything just seems to work "right". Very impressive , talented young stallion.


        Brief look in my catalogue and yes, the conclusion makes perfect sense since here comes a son of Don Frederico. An anecdote says it all:
        There used to be a professional barn up north in Germany and the sing on the door said:
        “Monthly fee mounting and training 600 Euros.
        For progeny by Sandro Hit an Don Frederico costs double.”


        LOL. As someone who has had (and loved!) two Don Fredericos I can laugh in agreement here. They certainly make their opinions known.

          houserabbitz,

          Thanks for the link to Fannie Mae's report on him. Loved reading it.

          I agree that if Don Frederic didn't have such a wonderful dam line, I wouldn't be interested right now.

          Alexandra,

          I would love to hear any more information you find about him.

          Thanks,
          Dan

              As others have said, his damline is really strong. I own a mare from this damline (Bellatesse HTF) and have researched it quite a bit.

              http://www.horsetelex.de/family.php?horseid=248367


              And it seems that all branches of the Valentino xx x Absatz daughters from this damline ended up becoming excellent producers, with lots of approved stallions and competitive S level horses. And the originator Landschaft dam was the dam of Worms (who produced Argentan I and II).

              And I can also agree that the movement is engrained in this damline and carries through very strongly.

                I have added quite a few horses just from my head in the close relation of Don Frederic.



                And I also know a guy that breeds with this mare out of the same line:

                  I'm thinking about him for a mare we have in Germany right now.


                  Just found someone who sells his frozen. You would just need to get someone like Judy Yancey to import.

                      I also love this Damline. A former AHS Horse of the Year Loreen D descends foem the same line. I have a mare sharing agreement on a Wolkestein II - Lemon Park - Wenzel. One of her babies is currently in Stephen Paters barn. Very ridable and trainable.

                        I saw him last month there too and he definitely struck my liking almost the most of all stallions.

                        Only thing, anyone knows why he was turned down at the Hanoverian preselection? will he be going for his under saddle approval?
                        if he gets approved for hanover, I have a mare in mind for him in Germany.

                            Linda he was definetely not at any Hanoverian preselection ! I know because a friend was at the complete tour. My guess: because Verden prefers that each stallion presented at the big licensing is sold there, they wanted to avoid the hassle. As far as I know PS bought him as foal.

                              Does anyone want to venture "what type of mare" would suit him? He seems pretty perfect to me - maybe a little more substantial than some of the current favorite young ones. Seems to me to have "Hanover" written all over him. Maybe avoid very old fashioned mares? How about a mare with TB in the damline?

                                Dr Christmann is usually always pushing for more refinement. One of the surprises at the Hanoverian breeders course is that Dr. Christmann said that the Hanoverians now have enough refinement. It is not good to have too much thoroughbred blood. It can cause problems with straightness of the legs.

                                  A friend and I wanted to order two doses of DF. I talked to Judy Yancey and she told me it wouldn't be cost effective for her to bring any of his semen over unless she got a total of 10 doses ordered. So if anyone out there wants to place an order please let her know. She would only need eight more orders. She told me she thought her price would be 650 a dose.

                                    Thanks Dan. I wasn't asking about breeding to a TB (approved Hanoverian), but rather about a mare who falls into the "Half-blood" category in Germany - eg, her dam is from an approved TB - such as a Lauries Crusador or Prince Orac daughter, thus making the mare in question1/4 TB.
                                    I've heard the same comment from Dr Christmann, saying there is now enough TB in "the recipe" (as a generality), and the Verband want to ensure legs are correct and not too spindly.

                                      I was just trying to say that the pendulum is starting to swing back to the type of horse that has a little substance.

                                      Of course the mare still needs to be a good match for the stallion. The mare we are planning to breed to Don Frederic is by San Amour. This mare has plenty of refinement to be a good match with Don Frederic.

                                        Neat. I think a San Amour match might be super. What about a very refined Sir Donerhall? I worry that is not enough "like-to-like", with the mare being super refined, even if her genotype is not.
