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.

  • Hanoverian stallion Wellington II?

    Wellington II is a Hanoverian stallion who stood in Canada a number of years ago.
    I can remember seeing his picture/ads but I don't know much about him.

    Does anyone have any insight into his breeding/pedigree?


    Any experience with his offspring?
    A lovely mare by him has been bred to AFR, and I am interested in knowing more about her sire.
    Thanks in advance!

    I am stretching WAY back into the dusty cobwebs of my memory, but if I recall correctly, he stood in Ontario for a while. I believe he was approved CWHBA but not Hanoverian and was owned by Colleen Embree-Jay. I believe Colleen is now in BC and you can find her contact info herhttp://www.canadianwarmbloods.com/bc.php?page=Executive+%26+Directorse

      Nice stallion. Retired in 2003, I believe. Sired by Wedekind (by Ferdinand) and out of a Frustra II (Futurist) mare. If he's still alive, he'd be close to 32 +/- by now. He is/was Hanoverian in origin, but approved CWHBA.

      Partial pedigree here:

      Found this old thread. A picture is posted of him.

        Rodawn and Forte sound right. I bred my Trak/TB cross to him in the mid 90s, hoping to add a little bone and get a quieter temperament. Got both - a filly who looked very much like her sire, very light on her feet, good temperament on the ground and undersaddle. He was a handsome stallion, and I think he passed on his even temperament and good movement. Many of his offspring were bay, with some white.

          Thank you very much Forte,Sunnydays and rodawn for the links and info.

          The mare is by Wellington, out of a very nice TB mare, and strongly resembles her sire.
          Lovely mare, excellent conformation and temperament,competed well in dressage.

          Do any of you Hanoverian experts have any insight into the pedigree? is this a dressage pedigree or do we see any jumpers here?
          (I confess to knowing almost nothing about Hanoverian bloodlines).

          Thanks again.

            My boy is also out of Wellington II out of a tb mare. He is just lovely. He has a really nice, round jump to him and is a nice mover as well. I haven't had the funds to show him a lot, but he placed really well in the hunters and could easily do 1.20 jumpers now but he is my pet, the love of my life and he gets to pretty much do as he pleases

            I actually have a video and breed sheet for Wellington II (I could pdf and email it to you if you'd like). He looks like he was a lovely stallion.

            Here is my guy:

              Thank you bucksnort (one of my favourite user names ever btw). Your boy is handsome - and does resemble the mare too.
              Thank you for sharing pics of him.

                I was spectacularly lucky to have owned a Wellington II daughter as my first horse. Her name was Wellington Abbey. She was bay with chrome. Fabulous temperament and a gorgeous mover. Biggest mistake of my equine life was selling her to my then coach because she had too much talent and we were both green. If I knew then what I know now, we would have stayed together for the whole of her life. Her full sister and her half brother were also wonderful horses. He seemed to be a very consistent producer - even my farrier raved about his foals that were in his practice. If I could ever find a daughter of Abbey's I would buy her in a heartbeat. Actually, I would seriously consider any nice Wellington II daughter. Or granddaughter!

                  Hi Fred, lovely older style Hanoverian (just when they were starting to breed them a little "lighter" for the NA market). I remember him the day he was imported to Canada. In fact we were the first Canadian clients of the new owners to breed to him. He did not complete his final Han. testing in Germany but was approved as a CSH stallion. I had two foals by him, one sold to the USA as a top hunter and the other I kept as my dressage horse and later sold to an eventer who campaigned him well into his mid 20's even at the Preliminary levels starting to wind down his career at that point. He showed until after he turned 30 and is still alive I believe to this day. VERY hardy, handsome horses.

                      Thank you Cheryl. Great info to have, and good to hear.
                      This mare is by Wellington II and out of a very nice TB mare.
                      She had a very nice colt by A Fine Romance who has been sold to the US as an UL event prospect.
                      She has just had another beautiful colt by A Fine Romance.
                      Both of these are 3/4 TB and 1/4 Hanoverian.
                      I'm very grateful for the information on their damsire.
