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!

    I don't think you are going to find a Tail male Ladykiller pure TB anywhere. Blue Peter lives today mostly through his damsire position in Princely Gift, who is now also mostly found in the dam line.

    We actually had a sport horse line in the US directly from Blue Peter through this horse until quite recently. http://www.pedigreequery.com/catch+a+murmur
    I believe he's dead now with no intact male descendants. Last I heard, which was about five years ago, his son Hail To Murmur was intact, but the breeder was going out of breeding, and Hail To Murmur might have been gelded--which would be a tragedy. I have no idea what happened to him.

      The Holsteiners used Shayga as a refining influence through Ramzes. It certainly worked for the Verband.

        Soleil Q here in the states seems to fit what you're looking for, but I have no idea if he's even available. Sunlight xx x Wolkenstein II x Lauries Crusador xx, approved Han.

          We owned a Blue Peter xx great grandson for 22 years (Trakehner by By Rights xx, a Blue Peter grandson) - toughest horse I ever met. Had I been a more accomplished rider, he would have gone really big places (as per German Team coach at the time ;-) Fantastic line.

          Ramzes AA is still around in some lines today. Holsteiners used him, as did the Westfalians, and the Trakehners - and it is there that he can still be found in closer generations (Condus blood in the US for example).

            We have lots of blue peter sons here in australia, and they can be found from 4 th generation onwards,we are lucky that way, also many sons of Precipitation and Tudor Melody

            unfortunately alot of the stallions with these in them are still horrendously expensive at stud

            there is also Mount Etnaxx at celle as well , he is more expensive than the others there, not sure why

            if i thought i could get away with Bonaparte that would be great, but i do need very refining

            or instead of TB i was thinking a Trak/TB/arab stallion, something like K2 from Sprehe or any of the other trak stallions around

            its difficult knowing how refining some of them are as the Hohensteins for example and the Hofrats look pretty hefty dont they, not refined at all

            very grateful for all the advice guys

              If your mares are registered Holsteiner, even Australian Holsteiner, why not consult with your registry or the German Verband about their thoughts on Bonaparte N,? I know Celle is the Hanoverian Verband, but many of the horses they stand are also approved Holsteiner--as is Bonaparte. The Holsteiner Verband has Waterdance xx, Armand xx, and Cyrkon xx, but their blurbs say nothing about whether they are available frozen for export.

              I know you're breeding for dressage, but the Holsteiner Verband owns an SF stallion named Fidelio du Donjon who is 96 % TB, very tall and rangy, with a pedigree to die for. He was a GP jumper himself in France. He takes a very different ride to excel than the German style, but that may just be the difference in training and riding style.

              Private Holsteiner stallions that look very interesting are the Heraldik son Herald and Mighty Magic who has Mytens for sire and Heraldik for damsire, so he's 3/4 TB. Although MM has been bred for eventing, his dressage number is actually higher than his jumping number. 128 (85%) versus 108 (75%). The Olympic dressage horse for Poland Ekwador (H-Ekwador) WAS a stallion, may still be, and is by Heraldik. Mighty Magic has more than a few foals on the ground in the US, but most are out of TB mares. Refining wasn't a priority. But the Verband or your registry in connection with the Verband might have an opinion on MM's refining potential.

              For a Trak who is long and lanky with a spectacular pedigree take a look at Laurel (Stan The Man xx out of a Pregel daughter) who stands at Marbach (Bad-Wu). All of the ones I've mentioned have exported frozen or will be exporting frozen, except possibly Herald, Ekwador and Fidelio.

                I know there have been some concerns about the stallion owner, but what about Esteban xx if it's possible for you to get his semen (provided you are looking to breed eventers)? He's approved Holsteiner and I believe he is the highest ranked living TB on the WBFSH Eventing rankings. He'd definitely be at the top of my list (if you're willing to consider importing your own semen).

                I was also incorrect about the number of Likoto offspring on the WBFSH rankings; I believe there are only 4. I think I was getting the numbers mixed up with those of Esteban, who has more like 7 or 8 on the list and they are ranked as high as 23rd. (Still, it's a start for Likoto. I'd still be interested in him as a potential event/dressage sire.)

                  There are no TB sons of Heroicity standing in NZ but there is frozen semen available on him. He actually was bred and raced in Australia before coming to NZ to stand at stud.
