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!

rohdiamant x fidermark - wonders do happen...

    ... not to hijack this post and turn into "a foal is born" thread - but to finally complete it:
    my dream has become true - the wonder did happen.
    a black filly has been born tonight and i couldn't be any happier ... and grateful.

    http://www.muensterland-pferde.de/NewsArchiveengl.htm (click on "Riva")

    her official name will be "Rarität" which is the german word for "rarity" and i guess it serves her well - as there won't bearly be much more Rohdiamant's around in due cause given that succesfull pregnancies aren't too easy. otherwise, i would breed back to him in a heartbeat as i dearly desire this proven bloodline.

    Thus, i have spend a lot of time in the past to search for an eligible son of him to breed to in the future and i think i have been succesful:
    Real Diamond by Rohdiamant x Weltmeyer x Hill Hawk has been in my neighbourhood and i know him since he appeared at the public scene intially age three couple of years ago.
    back than, i didn't spend much thoughts on rohdiamant or any of his sons since i didn't care - took me a big time very personal learning curve over years to finally learn to value this stallion and his heritage. www.muensterland-pferde.de/rohdiamantengl.htm (this link is all about my "Rohdiamant" learning curve...)
    real diamond is mentioned in that link, too, and here is his official webside:
    www.hengste-korte.de/diamond.html and no, i am not making any profit from marketing this stallion in any way but, yes, i have been one of the few eager breeders to urge his owner to finally have this stallion re-enter the breeding scene.
    as he did disappeare from the scene age four, lost his official approval and became somewhat forgotten.
    only with his first few foals turning three last year he regained highest recognition:
    3 state premium mares and 2 licensed sons from his frist year having bred only some twenty mares or so - a 25% quota of "premium" get - s.th. hard to find at any other stallion at all...
    having him regain his approval was just a formality given the obvious quality and success of his first kids age three.
    thus, i visited Real Diamond at his owner's place a couple of weeks ago to refresh my very personal opinion on him - he convinced me all over again just like he did back than...

    so if all goes well fannie mae will be bred to real diamond this summer but no matter what comes:
    fannie's black pearl "rarität" will always be my very personal precious rarity and i only hope she will stay sound and develop well - this is the filly i have been dreaming of for so long to base my future breeding program on.

      Huge congratulations Fannie Mae and a filly too for icing on the cake
      Good luck with your next breeding

        Your filly is beautiful and the name is so right for her. I have a Rohdiamant mare that I treasure. Your filly's eye reminds me of my mare's eye — very much a Rohdiamant.

        I really like the looks of Real Diamond. I hope that he might be available to us in the states through frozen semen.

        Good luck with your little girl! She is a rare jewel!

                              You used six heat cycles to get a pregnancy?

                              You are a determined woman.

                              Congratulations, that filly is a beauty.

                                What a pretty girl! Congratulations on a safe and healthy baby landing.

                                I have a Rohdi mare, and her temperament is just tops. She is so calm and sweet. Not much bothers her.

                                    Oh I am DROOLING. She's divine, you have my dream horse. Rohdiamant is my 'dream sire' but sadly, being in Australia that's never going to happen. She is stunning. Enjoy her!!

                                      She truly is a "black pearl", isn't she? Quite lovely! Enjoy your treasure!
