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.

  • Color puzzle...paint peeps?

    Sorry no genetic testing.
    http://www.horseclicks.com/2012_choc.../advert/260648

    I have been waiting for her to post this filly as her color is driving me nuts and now there are pictures.

    She is by a chestnut Irish Draught stallion, Hangon Johnny.

    Her dam, Godiva, is a mystery color as well...likely the same modifier as the filly. Godiva is by a black Irish Draught Sport Horse stallion Alainn Shawn who is by a chestnut ID sire and out of a blk/br TB dam. Godiva is out of a paint mare, Legends Liberty Chance. http://www.legendwoods.com/HorsePages/33_Zia/index.html

    As you can see the color on this mare could be in question because she has only a small amount of color to see...she is a medicine hat paint. She is registered as a black Tovero. The registry lists her sire as black and her dam as chestnut. Her registration lists her dam side great grand dam as a dun. However if you look on allbreedpedigree someone has entered some comments on her grand dam as being a silver tobiano due to odd colors of foals

    I think this filly and her dam are Silver Dapples. What do you think? PatO

    Oh sorry I forgot to mention that the link to "Zia" Zia is not the mare in question. Her dam is the granddam of the filly and her photo and registration is shown in the top right corner. Also there are pictures on the allbreedpedigree of the paint mares in question. Thanks. PatO

      Is the dam the horse beside her in the 3rd pic? And the sire is the adult horse in the slide show?

      if so, I think all 3 are chestnut with flaxen, just varying shades.

        OOOOH BOY! Did I get excited when I saw the mare's pedigree!

        Definitely DEFINITELY test the mare for silver. She descends from an almost 100% certain (highly suspected but not yet confirmed by DNA) silver line. One of only TWO known/suspected silver lines in the APHA breed.

        My silver APHA mares descend from a different, completely unrelated silver line which I traced to a grade mare named Painted Liz.

        Miss Tikki Reed is the great grandmother to this guy here, he exhibits the textbook classic phenotype for silver dapple. Unfortunately he was gelded and sold without papers so he was never tested.

        http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/bn+pecos+pete

        The mare Legend's Liberty Chance could very well be a silver dapple. All the white covers many of the telltale signs. She looks very very simliar to this guy, Angels Little Jack, who is a son of my now deceased silver buckskin broodmare and a half-brother to my two other mares. He is DNA tested silver black, Ee aa nZ.

        http://www.silverequine.com/uploads/...26/2850739.jpg

        You can read about my silver APHA horses here:

        www.silverspringfarm.net

        Here's an article from the APHA journal that discusses both my mares and BN Pecos Pete.

          FWIW, I think the ID cross filly in the ad is a brown silver - not a black silver. Can't tell what the dam is based off of the pics though.

              Yes, definitely investigate for silver dapple. Would be very cool to see on a large horse outside of the pony and Rocky Mountain horses.

                FatCat, silver does exist in several non-gaited horse breeds although silver lines are rare.

                To date it has been confirmed in American Paints, Quarter Horses, Morgans, Saddlebreds, Gypsy Vanners and even some Dutch Warmbloods.

                Silver tends to express itself a bit more minimally on most of those breeds. We're not sure why. Makes it that much harder to find because people don't really know they are looking at.

                For example, here is a lovely silver bay ApHC filly. She received the silver gene from her AQHA sire. She is a minimal expression of silver. DNA tested Ee AA nZ.

                http://www.safyresporthorses.com/khepri.html

                Here is my black silver APHA mare. EE aa nZ:

                http://silverspringfarm.net/images/bella1.jpg

                Even though both mares are quite minimal (when compared to say - ponies or RMHs) they can still produce loud silver progeny. We are not sure what it is that dictates expression. It does appear that silver on brown is usually more minimal than silver on true bay.

                Here is my silver bay 2011 APHA filly. She is quite loud despite the fact that both of her parents were minimally expressed silvers. (Brown silver sire, buckskin silver dam.)

                  Thanks for the reply and I agree it's probably been overlooked in some of those breeds. I had an ApHC mare, Dazzling Vision Spot, who was smokey black and it was her eyes that gave it away. Amazing how long it has taken some of the registeries to catch up to the dilute and silver modifying genes.

                  Your mare Angel makes me wonder about the Saddlebred stallion I picked up. I haven't color tested him yet but plan to, but now I'm wondering if he carries a silver gene himself. All of his foals to date have been black based dilutes. I just love the dapples in his buckskin coloring. Check out my FB page for photos (in signature line). Will be curious to hear what you think.

                    Awesome! I will check out your page when I get home. (FB is blocked for me right now.)

                    Cream and silver have an interesting effect on each other. For the most part cream tends to mute silver's effects. Some silver buckskins hardly show a hint of the silver gene at all.

                    This guy here is a DNA confirmed silver buckskin but you would never guess silver was there by looking at him.

                        Okay, I got to check out his pics. First off - WOW what a cool guy! I just love seeing nice saddlebreds in sport. He is one nice substantial fellow! Nice jump too!

                        I don't see anything that screams silver to me. His mane and tail look to be a true black at the roots. My silver buckskin mare did not have any black on her at all. Her mane and tail were a dark burgundy color with flaxen tips. Here legs were not black either, but a very dark burgundy color.

                        You can see her leg and forelock color pretty well here:

                        http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...type=3&theater

                        Tail color here:

                        http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...type=3&theater

                        But - then again, we have this guy. He's the silver buckskin with hardly a hint of silver. He has only a hint of golden highlights in his mane and forelock.

                        http://www.willowbendfarm.com/golden5-05.jpg

                        Here is the pedigree for the known silver saddlebred mare. I wonder if she has any common ancestors with your guy?

                          I see what you mean. Interesting. My two buckskins Georgian Grandes by Spot of Gold are very much like the Willowbend Welsh stallion in color and have tons of silver in their manes and the youngest in his tail; and they get golden highlights in their black points during summer. Might be fun to check and see since I think the color test is only $25. Thanks for the compliments on Charm. He's a nice boy. Your 2012 colt is super fancy!

                            Thank you! That colt is such a cool guy. Really laid back and HUGE to boot. He is the spitting image of his mother - who is my favorite riding horse.

                            One thing about the silver gene is the name itself is kind of misleading. Most large-breed black-based silver horses have a mane/tail that's not really silver - rather, it's more of a brassy gold color.

                            I have gotten pretty good at guessing whether a horse is silver based off of the tone of the lightened mane and/or tail.

                            A lot of suspected silvers end up being bays with gulastra plume, like this guy:

                            http://www.whitehorseproductions.com...lo_17yotb1.jpg

                            Or bay sabino. Certain sabino lines have an amazing dilution effect on the mane and points. Khartoon Klassic (DNA'd EE AA) sires A LOT of foals like this:

                            http://www.khartoonkhlassic.com/img6.jpg

                            Then there is wild bay - which is another notorious silver mimic:

                            http://www.morgancolors.com/bushcreektrillium.jpg

                            When cream is added to any of those bay variations you get a pretty convincing silver buckskin as well. It will be nice when we can test for the wild bay gene and the rest of the sabino genes!

                            If you do test your guy - be sure to let us know the results. It would be very exciting to find another line of silver saddlebreds!

                              Note that the Saddlebred mare Crescent Society is deceased.

                              Her surviving Silver Bay or Brown offspring is in Australia siring foals -see the links.

                              http://www.dilutesqld.com/apps/photo...toid=106010849
                              http://www.facebook.com/PlatinumPark...formanceHorses

                              Note that ASHA registry does not have silver as an option: both dam and son are registered 'chestnut' although both were/are silver bay or brown.

                              The Silver gene would have had to trace through her dam (chestnut?) as Crescent Society's sire was registered bay and looked bay.

                              Tracing silver through chestnut Saddlebreds is an exercise in futility as the silver won't show unless bred to a black-based horse and soooo many Saddlebreds are (true) chestnut.
