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, too, am shocked at the inbreeding on the Cantoblanco son.
    The father Cantoblanco is out of the full sister to Clinton.

    the young stallions mother is also a full sister to Clinton.......on paper (Zarina and Waage are full sisters both bred to Carolus I ) . The entire pedigree besides the very top line from Canto is incest.

    like I said......must be nice or it wouldn't have been selected. I can be almost 100% certain this stallion will be entered in the auction and sold. They won't breed with this.

      This is a newbie question, but did Wendy have to take her horse over to Germany for this Stallion Approval?

        No , I arranged for her to buy the Coriano filly when she was born in Holstein. She has been raised and bred on the breeders farm ever since.

        Wendy has done a good job breeding her there. Not only did she breed this Calido / Coriano stallion that has been selected for Nuemunster , she also bred her to Cormint and has produced an outstanding young mare as well.

        Hope that helps "newbie"......LOL

          Somewhat unrelated to this topic, but I would appreciate your opinion/insight on Askari. One of my favorite horses in the barn I manage is by him and I would take 20 more...curious to hear what he often passes on (good/bad)...

            Askari is a very , very good stallion. I was in Holstein when he was approved and even from such a young age he demonstrated first rate jumping ability. He has a really good mind and very good basic gaits. His pedigree is outstanding.

            Asca Z is a good son of Askari.

            Silver Creek Farm has a really nice Askari mare from a Lord mother. sometimes they are big , sometimes small but most are attractive , correct and athletic.

              Thanks for your insight Bayhawk. Sounds like this horse is very much like his dad, then. He is a jumper (decent success in the YJC) turned eventer (which he loves but struggles with the dressage as you might expect). He is out of a Ronald/Dialog I dam. Very attractive and good minded.

                Yeah......you generally won't get dressage from this pedigree.

                  To get back to the abundance of "C" stallions - you have to go all the way to page 7 to find the first colt that is NOT from a C line foundation stallion.

                  By my count:
                  60 "C" line colts
                  4 Diarado sons
                  1 Dolany son
                  4 "L" line colts (3 by Larimar)
                  8 colts descended from Quidam de Revel
                  2 colts by Stakkato

                  Looking at it as from the outside as someone not well versed in jumper breeding, there sure does seem to be an over-proliferation of "C" line in Holstein. OTOH, Holstein does have the top jumper motherlines in the world, so is the primary goal to produce intensely linebred or even inbred MARES that can be used with stallions from other lines to produce big ring talent?

                    And what is with the Dolany son? If Holstein is focused on producing jumpers, why did they select a Donnerhall grandson for the Korung? Was it to placate the few dressage breeders there?

                      The first horse listed is by Ampere, who is all dressage too...

                        There are TWO c lines that aren't even related. Does anyone get this ?

                        Corde la bryere is one line and Cottage Son xx is another. They have set the showjumping world on fire for the last 50 years with these two lines.

                        You have L , two A's , R , S , M lines etc placed in between the c's. Look at Wendy's stallion..... Calido / Coriano / Contender / Laval I / Fernando. There are 3 c line stallions in a row coming here from Corde. One has to look at the mothers of the 3 c line horses.

                        Calido descends from Corde on a Roman / Aldato mare
                        Coriano descends from Corde on a Lord / Ramiro / Harras mare
                        Contender descends from Corde on a Ramiro / Ladykiller / Heidekrug mare.

                        Corde la bryere is a complete outcross to the Holsteiner mare base. The more he is in the pedigree , the more hybrid vigor he brings.

                        my friends have a stallion selected from Calido / Lord / Masetto / Ramiro/ Colonel stamm 776.....this is heavy Cottage Son xx breeding. Guess what they will do with him if he is approved ? Right back on Corde mares !

                        before you get afraid of C , one should recognize how the two c's work. If we didn't have this blood there would not even have been Darco for BWP or Hickstead for the KWPN , much less our own world famous horses.

                        The blood needs to be admired and implemented here. They are trying not to concentrate it so much there , but we need it here.

                        Holstein will never and should never get away from the C blood. It just needs L or A or TB inserted about every 3rd or 4th generation.

                          I said it quite a few posts ago--yes, we get that there are two C lines. No problem there, but as I also said, breeders in Germany will tell you Holsteiners need blood--new blood every time you breed to a Holsteiner stallion, you need to be adding new blood that is not in the stallion. Or the breeding direction will go backwards on you. You will not get that beautiful modern type you think you are going to get--you get that older, heavier horse of a few generations ago. The XX blood and the OX blood is being watered down in the 4th, 5th and 6th generations.

                          And Holsteiners don't necessarily work well on all breeds. The mare you are breeding to a Holsteiner stallion should have as much XX or OX blood in her as is possible, mixed in over several generations. Breeding to a 25% XX/OX mare will produce disastrous results if you are wanting a modern type.

                              Yes, I know that. I probably should have said "C lines" instead of "C line" in my comment about "over-proliferation."

                              It is just interesting to see something around 74% of the colts in the Korung coming from the two "C" line foundation stallions. Obviously, the breeders there feel those lines are the best for producing jumping talent or they wouldn't be concentrating that blood in their gene pool as much.

                              I'm not being critical, I'm trying to learn.

                                I suspect that you are not speaking to Germans in Holstein. IN GENERAL, you are correct about breeding in versus out. When you in breed too much they become shorter, and less refined. When you breed out, you bring in the Hybrid Vigor, longer legs, and generally more refinement.

                                Here is where you are missing part of this. The best breeders line breed to the out cross blood. When doing this you bring the blood forward, not the old type. Cor de la Bryere, is unique out cross blood because he is a SF who is also a half bred. This C you can use over and over and over, because you are breeding out, not in. He provided quickness and front leg technique, things often desired when breeding out.

                                2 years ago I bred my mare Calandra to Connor. Here is the pedigree.
                                http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/corsen+sr

                                You will see that I line bred to the half bred horse, and most importantly to Corde. The result was anything but heavy and old type.

                                https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/phot...eat=directlink

                                This horse only has one Capitol through Korrada, Corrado I's full sister. The line breeding report shows the first 5 horses are either half breds or out cross stallions, and 4 of them are out cross stallions.

                                This horse is full of hybrid vigor. So much so, the FEH class he was entered into he received a 78.8, one of the highest scores in the country. They don't like heavy type, I can assure you.

                                This is just an example, but you can point to it all the time. Especially the breeding sires and dams that are being used.

                                  Holstein is aware of the risks of the little stallionchoice and opens now and then for some new blood. And so you can still breed a real Holsteiner, linebreed if you wish, but also add new blood into your foal. We did it for instance like this:

                                    "Holsteiners need new blood" ? "The breeding direction will go backwards" ?

                                    Holsteiner is the #1 ranked studbook in the world. They have the #1 female family in the world and at last check had the top 2 ranked horses in the world.

                                    They are hardly breeding backwards. Whomever is feeding you this information is obviously not from Holstein.

                                    "Breeders in Germany will tell you" ? You might want to develop some friendships with the breeders in Holstein and you may learn a little more.

                                      It is just interesting to see something around 74% of the colts in the Korung coming from the two "C" line foundation stallions. Obviously, the breeders there feel those lines are the best for producing jumping talent or they wouldn't be concentrating that blood in their gene pool as much.

                                      I'm not being critical, I'm trying to learn.
                                      Absolutely DY.....they have developed their entire breed around these two C lines thus becoming the best in the world and helping other studbooks significantly upgrade their stock with C blood.
