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!

  • Chacco Blue

    I know some people here have used him; how was the semen?
    Also, does anyone know where to find a confo. photo of him; I've searched but haven't found one yet! Would like to know if he is throwing lighter/modern types or not...

    I'm wondering too - he sure seems lovely & is producing nicely, but I have yet to see a conformation photo of him, and have searched quie a bit He has a couple approved sons, the strike me as having a nice medium build, but again I haven't been able to find an decent conformation shot of them either ..

    Maybe Judy Yancey would be able to help you out? She serves as an agent for him.

        I've used the semen but didn't get a pregnancy. I'd have to ask my vet what the number were. I did find a conformation photo of him once but now I can't find it again. It remember it being on an Australian? frozen semen broker's website.

          I tried breeding a mare to him a few years ago. The vet said the semen looked very good but unfortunately no pregnancy.

            I actually saw him in person in April. You can see a video and a picture of him at schockemoehle.com. I really liked his son Chaccamo who I also saw (he is on the website) He is much lighter but has Contender in both sides of his pedigree. He was a hunter delux in my book. It will be interesting to see how he pans out. He is only 3. I might breed my TB mare to him next year.

            I think Crooked Willow has a mare in foal to Chacco Blue, but the mare is in Germany so they probably did not use frozen. You can probably email Matt and he could tell you.

              KRF, can you elaborate on Chaccmo? I liked him on the Schockemohle DVD.

                Thanks for the info guys. I'm trying to get frozen semen purchased for next year and I have one mare I just can't make my mind up about! I've looked at Converter, Quintender, Chacco Blue, and more and confo. photos are hard to come by. Right now, I'm just paralyzed by indecision; there are a lot of nice stallions out there and at this point I'm like "oh, he's nice; wait,what about that one, or that one..."!

                    Did your friend breed the filly; if so what was the frozen semen like?

                      We recently purchased a rising 3yo Chacco Blue x Argentinus filly (frozen semen) she can REALLY jump. Looks to mature around 17hh a fairly fine leggy type, sensitive but sensible.

                      Since we bought her we have heard rave reviews from Germany about Chacco Blue and his progeny so we think we made a good pick!

                          Spacley,

                          Well I was definitely looking for hunter stallions when I was in Germany. Chacco Blue is your jumper type, short coupled, powerful etc. Chaccamo is only 3 but he is longer, lighter and more elegant than his sire. He had a puppy dog mentality and a really kind eye. He really stood out for what I was looking for to cross with my mares. I think he will be available for 2009.

                            I just wanted to add that I love this stallion! I saw his video a few years ago and he just stuck out for me. Chaccamo is also lovely! Good luck if you decide to breed to him, you will have to share pics of the result!

                                Just a few of the reasons a confo. photo would be nice... I still haven't found one!

                                  Though a first-hand account of those front legs can often tell you a lot more than a photo... One of the things that bothers me most about not being able to see the stallion myself.

                                      Thank you, thank you, thank you! I swear I've searched the entire Internet and never came across that picture. It is at least a good starting point!

                                        Unfortunately, I really did not get that good of a look at Chacco Blue. His head is typical WB, nothing to die for, neck typical WB. He had a blanket on and was in a stall. To tell you the truth the people at Schockmohle's were not very hospitable. We made an appointment, arrived at the specific time and felt they really did not want to show us what they had. I did not have a "big name" with me so they did not take us seriously. They kept pushing a stallion named Diarado. But I did get a better look at a few of the others. Chaccomo has a better head, better neck, seemed overly kind and was more my type of horse.

                                        In contrast, we went to the Hessen stud in Dillenburg, the director could not have been nicer, trotted out horses for us, pulled them out of the stalls, took off blankets, set down with me and discussed what I was looking for and discussed my mares pedigrees etc. I would definately deal with them, they were overly gracious!! They had lesser know stallions, but they were from similar bloodlines and were on the whole younger and just starting their careers.
