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!

      V'tropez is still breeding in British Columbia.

      It's my understanding that you can't get Baloubet du Rouet in North America for love or money (we're expecting a BdR x Darco foal in June this year, so I went thru the breeding hassle last year with PSI).

      We're working on getting some QdR from Scanvet (Danish owners)- so far no joy.

        ok this is crazy, but just saw this article on facebook


        and the stallion (I think) stands in North Carolina, and Icarus De Carolina is a doll to handle and has such a pleasant personality, I use to board at the barn that owned and stood him

          Has anyone bred to Frenchman? He's quite a looker with a spectacular pedigree and was also a performer. Very interesting horse.

          Newsprint Farm was standing an American bred Olisco son out of Gem Twist's full sister who is supposed to be SF, but when he was brought back to America from New Zealand, SF was defunct. I doubt if he's been approved for breeding, but he's standing. I haven't heard a word about him in a couple of years, so he may not be active now.

          Chatsworth Stud represents Querdolan Vitarel, but he's a French AA. Does the SF branch here also have "jurisdiction" over French AAs? Their page says he went through the young horse testing in France and passed with flying colors--was denominated "elite".

          V'Tropez is also out of a Good Twist mare. He must be ancient.

                    My last project horse (sold in December) was a son of Ilian de Taute out of a RID x TB mare. Great jumper, good dressage if you really worked on it, good attitude.

                      I looked at your website and we have a lot of the same tastes (I'm thinking about mighty magic for a different mare). Can't wait to see your v'tropez foal. we've been discussing V'troz for a Darco/voltaire/JaliscoB full sister to world cup mare Oaks Altes but have to wait till June when her Baloubet du Rouet foal arrives. I was so smitten with V'tropez I considered getting India, the argus dam of V'tropez approved son Magnum & trying to do another (india's ancient too, but I quite fancied her bay filly by Capone 1).

                        V'Tropez is 25 now, but I bred my mare with fresh semen and I absolutely can't wait for this foal to arrive. I would be very surprised if this foal doesn't have jumping talent. Just think - Galoubet and Gem Twist on the top and King of Diamonds and Spectular Bid on the bottom. 1/4 SF, 1/2 TB, 1/4 RID - will have tremendous jumping ability and wonderful temperment. Good enough for a professional, rideable enough for an amateur.

                          In the last WBFSH Jumpers ranking 16 of the first 39 horses are by a SF sire (41%) and 5 are by Baloubet du Rouet (13%)
                          An absolut record. http://www.wbfsh.org/files/Horses_ra...g_april_13.pdf
                          French breeders where the last one's to acknowledge the quality of Baloubet du Rouet, they were focusing on the "look" of the stallions they used instead of the athleticism and performance... KWPN have 2, Holstein 1, SBS 1 and BWP 1.

                            Far West

                            I just thought I would mention Far West again and that his stud fee is very reasonable. My imported French mare had two foals by him. One is doing very well as a hunter the other as a jumper. The mare was a jumper in France and a very good hunter here.

                              I second, third(?) Equine reproductions(kathy), Edelweiss de Bonce, he is just gorgeous, and from what I have heard his get have great minds, which is so important for me, as my mare is VERY alpha and not always agreeable! Lol. I have a half selle mare(Roskoff) that I would love to putt her to, but I think she is just to 'old school style' and heavy. She has a fantastic walk and trot, but def needs improvement on the length of her canter stride, and from that as well, a longer neck.

                              Good luck in your search I just love the breed as well!

                                  I ride the stallion Krisproll One over at Winley farm in NY. Super easy to work with. Coming back from some injuries... Very free moving! We are schooling 3rd level now. He would make a nice cross with the right mare for eventing...
