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.

    I agree, and was happy to be corrected and correct the facts. However, I am confident that we won't be saying the same thing about them in the years to come. With the time off to have a foal, and then having her primary rider be in an accident. Her training has not offered her the opportunity to show her stuff. With her new riders and dedication to competing her, I think we will see a lot more of her. I am also excited to see her daughter competing as well, I believe with Wendy Peralta.

    How is the Cardento from my mare doing? Did she have a foal for you this year? I would be interested in hearing how she is producing.

      "You can not look at our Sport horses to evaluate the herd in this manner."

      I think if you look at the lisitng for the verband stallions--you could also draw that conclusion.

      Why so few A sire lined stallions--(although it seems to make a fine dam sire?)
      Is that by choice or design? Or is that it is just not a "stallion maker" line.
      TIA

          Which A line do you refer too, Alme or Anblick XX.

          The breeders of Holstein select the stallions first based on presentation, and then later by production. Alme through Acord II seemed most prolific through Acorado. Acadius I was told was also a good son of Acord II, but was born at the wrong time. Acorado was a breeding fool and breeding while Acadius was around. Acadius was shipped out. We only have a few sons of Acorado, and most notably Acodetto who happens to be a great mare producer.

          Quidam de Revel is essentially an Alme sire line. He does have a few, and we all know about Quinar who was double Alme. We have Quintero, Quidams Acord, Q-Verdi and so forth. We will have to wait and see how they do.

          The take home message is that the Ramiro/Alme cross was best and discovered by Alex Leon at Zangershiede. You might remember Ratina Z. This is how best to look at the Alme's. Classe is a stallion to keep looking at because although he is a son of Chin Chin, he is double Alme as well.


          We also had Alcatraz. He wasn't a sire maker, but had great impact on some mare lines. Very powerful, good jumpers, but sometimes huge and with too much white for many Holsteiner breeders.

          To your point about the Stallion Roster. I can see what you mean, but I am more interested in which stallions are being used, and those which are producing our next generation. That history tells the story.

              That is a good point--I had not thought about that--if the french had the same naming convention there would be more stallions under A ! :-)

                Alme crosses well with far more than just Ramiro. Big Star is Quick Star (Galoubet by Alme) out of Nimmerdor mare and Taloubet Z is Baloubet du Rouet (Galoubet by Alme) out of a Nimmerdor mare. Big Star is Team Gold from London and Taloubet Z is WC Finals winner in 2011 bred by the same breeder in NL.

                Cylana, Reed Kessler's mount, is by Skippy II (Galoubet A by Alme) out of a Darco mare.

                Lots of other examples but this gives the idea.

                  She is in foal to Carracci, a Verband approved Caretino son. Really looking forward to seeing the foal myself. Will let you know when it arrives.

                        I know many know this already, but there are two seperate C lines in Holstein. The Cottage Son XX line and Cor de la Bryere Line. The Cottage SonXX line is Capitol. We all know that there is a lot of sires with this pedigree, but keep in mind the majority of the great horses keeping Holstein on top are not in bred. Here are some examples:

                        Corrado I- Corde/Capital/MaestoseXX/FrivolXX

                        Cassini I/II - Capitol/Caletto II/Mahmud/Cobalt (2 half breds)

                        Contender - Calypso II/Ramiro/LadykillerXX

                        Carthago - Capitol/CalandoI/Mambo/Consul (2 half breds)

                        Caretino - Caletto II/Metellus/Aldato (Half bred)

                        Casall - Caretino/Lavall/Raimond

                        Calido - Cantus/Coriolan/Roman

                        Canturo - Cantus/Calando I/Landego

                        etc. Yes some have double Corde, but he was an outcross stallion who was by the TB Rantzau XX. Complete outcross blood.

                        2 years ago the seigerhengst was by Larimar - Lavall II/Lord/Little Lion XX/GalapeterXX. Lavall II is 3/4 TB and Lord is 1/2. The year before that was Diarado, a Half bred by Diamant De Semilly. Those that are concerned about the Holsteiner horse are just not looking closely enough. We must seperate the sport horses and our breeding stock when evaluating availability of fresh genetics. You can not look at our Sport horses to evaluate the herd in this manner.

                        Tim
                        Thanks Tim, but note I said C "lines"--that is because there are two of them as you pointed out. And yes, the C lines were once outcrosses, but as they get rebred across each other so often now, they come closer and closer together as the outcrosses are further back in the genetic pool. I believe that my viewpoint was correct, and the genetic pool of the Holsteiner is getting more inbred. It is a generally understood rule in Germany that "the Holsteiner always needs fresh blood" otherwise the genetics moves backwards to the older types as the Ladykiller, Ramzes, Cottage Son, etc. get diluted out. A view expressed by many German breeders I know, and a view I would agree with. Again look at how successful the Holsteiner is when it is put on other breeds with strong XX or AA in their backgrounds.

                        Don't misunderstand--I love the Holsteiners for their jump ability and jump genetics. But, you have to be careful as to the mares you use.

                          If the French had the same naming conventions as the Germans, the "Alme" sire line wouldn't be "A". It would be "O", since it originated with the TB stallion "Orange Peel".

                              I must be speaking to different Germans, although I will admit they all reside in Holstein. The Holsteiner mares of yesterday needed those refinement sires as they were heavier. The modern sires of today do not have that problem, and are chock full of blood. ALL WB books use Hybrid Vigor to keep their herds relevant. This is not unique to Holstein. This is in fact what makes up the definition of a WB. What confuses many is there are 2 C-Lines so it makes it look more concentrated then it really is. Holstein has done one of the best jobs of weaving in the XX and AA Blood into their herd, and we now line breed to it keep it fresh.

                              I just love it when everyone else is concerned with the #1 jumper breed in the world, except Holsteiner Breeders. Look at all other WB books and you will see that their sires list does not have nearly as much XX or AA blood as does Holstein.

                              I will agree with you on this, you must be wise when selecting your breeding mares. Good broodmares if they have C and C concentration have it separated by L, A, H, M, F, S and R.

                              This is how it is done.

                                This is true for SF, as it would be the new outside blood to their book. However, the second it left France, and was approved for breeding in Holstein it caries the letter of the name of the outside horse to Holstein. That is why QDR is a Q line and not notated an A line. This is even true knowing that QDR's grandsire is the the approved A line sire Alme.

                                  All good points, Tim. You are certainly helpful in explaining the breed's recent history. My position on the current keuring list however still stands--I hate to see the demise of good older blood, particularly in a breed that is much used by others. Even a stool needs a minimum of 3 legs to continue standing. I think even the German Holstein breeders know this.

                                    The Holsteiner breeders are currently #1 in the world. The other studbooks currently using their blood with their own hybrid vigor are not outproducing them.

                                    Holstein always has their eye on the two c lines but they are far from concerned. Look at Casall.....Caretino / Laval I / Raimond / Korenbleem xx. where is the need for concern in this pedigree ?

                                    Contender.......Calypso II / Ramiro / Ladykiller xx Concern ?

                                    Corrado ......Corde / Capitol / Maestose xx / Frivol xx

                                    All examples of very little inbreeding.

                                    One needs to assertain that the breeding horses usually have less concentration of the two c lines than the sporthorses.

                                      None of these stallions are inbred at all. The inbreeding seems to be in the 5th and 6th generations. They are all elderly and could well each have three or four generations of get--maybe more.

                                      So do the current young stallions show the same pattern of multiple crosses to the mentioned stallions only in the back part of the pedigree?

                                      Do Holsteiner breeders ever cross full brothers several generations down the road?

                                      Bayhawk, I'm not trolling. I'm really interested in the answers, since Holstein breeding really is among the very best ever.

                                        Champion stallion last year. Cositino by Cosido / Libertino / Tin Rocco
                                        Res. Champion last year Casall / Clearway / I Love You / Silvester

                                        Champion the year before by Larimar / Contender / Corofino

                                        People who are yelling about too much inbreeding in Holstein either don't know what they are looking at or are simply seeing ghosts.

                                        There is some crossing with full brothers. I see Caletto I & II in the same pedigree some and am starting to see a little bit of Cassini I & II in the same pedigree. This is absolutely sporthorse breeding though.

                                        The better breeding tactic is when you see full brother / full sister in the same pedigree.

                                        Askari is an example. Calypso and his full sister are there up close.

                                        Cash and Carry another with Landgraf and his full sister up close.

                                        Check out the Cantoblanco son from stamm 4965 in this years line-up. That in my opinion is not even inbreeding......I say it's flat out incest. Must be a nice horse though. It was selected out of hundreds.

                                          Thanks, Bayhawk. It's really quite impressive how the stallions in the list have kept the staple stallions separate, more or less. The doubles all are in the back part of the pedigree.

                                          I, too, am shocked at the inbreeding on the Cantoblanco son.
