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 do visit breeders in the Holstein area. And Harm Thormahlen was the one who told me this 20 years ago--and it has been repeated since.

      I "get" all the sales pitch from the Holsteiner legion in this thread. But I am a jumping horse breeder, not a brand breeder. The world is not flat and you won't fall off if you leave Holstein. You will be o.k.

        btw, a SF horse, NINO DES BUISSONNETS, is ranked at #1. The Holsteiners you are probably thinking of stand at #2 and #3. Not to take away from the quality of the Holsteiner, I am just trying to defend my original post concerning my view of the lack of anything but C blood in the current crop that have been selected for the coming keuring. Don't assume someone who has an opinion not in accordance with your beliefs is uninformed, misinformed or ignorant of the Holsteiner breed. Further do not assume that if I have a breeding opinion different from yours and a couple others on this Holsteiner thread that I might need to develop friendships with the breeders in Holstein--as if I do not know what I am talking about--I doubt you speak for all of them.

          Harm Thormalen told you this 20 years ago ? Funny the Holstein studbook is ranked #1 20 years later with a majority of C line horses making up this # 1 spot.

          Funny it hasn't changed in 20 years and what's even more funny is that the most recent approved stallion Harm Thormalen bred is Cero by Calido / Come On / Calando I / Capitano.......FOUR generations in a row of C ........ouch ! I think my friend Harm was maybe trying to divert you away so he could breed with all the C !

          I personally don't think you know as much as you would like us to think you do , and if you think someone is "sales pitching" , you are sadly mistaken. It is what it is.

            To my eye, the filly is intensely inbred with the Corrado brothers as grandparent and great grandparent. And there are more duplicates in some of the other Holstein lines in the KWPN horses. Valine is Cottage Son and Raimond is Ramzes. There is more Ladykiller in the back and also more Farn. The only doubles, though, come through males. I find that interesting.

              BIG OUCH--I've been snake bit by a Holstein breeder
              Hard to make comments on this thread when some are closed minded and not open to opinions/thoughts of others. Difficult to have a discussion with different points of view when some have only their own vision that is tolerated.
              Cero is a very nice horse, btw, and its pedigree is an outstanding one. My initial point still stands however. The breed is on its way to being a two legged stool--the two legs being the two C lines. Anyone who understands genetics will understand that the other lines are dropping out each successive generation of breeding if the mares don't have diversity in them. You cannot drive or breed by looking solely in the rear view mirror. Breeding is a journey with a point that you came from to a point that you are going to. Would be helpful if you understood this. Then "maybe" we could have a good discussion of the breed's lines and how they have changed over the past couple of decades. But looks like that is not going to happen on this thread.

                Thanks. Although a bit further away I duplicated Dorette also.

                Reece: will not be in NMS this year. Keep an eye open for the Quintero from the same mareline as the mentioned filly.

                  Feather River,

                  You made it difficult to have a discussion about genetics, when you essentially wrote off the the #1 studbook in the world. Bayhawk and I gave you numerous examples of stallions, and horses that are far from overly concentrated in C and C and you chose to only defend you comment. The EVIDENCE has been provided to you that shows that the old guard, and many new stallions are in fact not heavily concentrated with C & C. It has been the proper use of these lines that has elevated them to the top. Your statements are in direct contradiction to the facts.

                  So it is difficult to have a meaningful conversation with you regarding genetics when you continue to disregard the facts. I have a degree in Biochemistry and Microbiology and Molecular Genetics. I can assure you that I understand these basic points in regards to diversity.

                  We would all enjoy a nice conversation about the Sire lines, as it would be appropriate for this thread. However, having that discussion with complete disregard for the mares and their own diversity is foolish. I provided an example with one of my mares. My mare has no Capitol, and 3 gens of half bred stallions then a TB stallion. I can breed her to almost any Holsteiner stallion alive(based on paper of course). One of my other mares is C,L,A,S,F . Again, no problems here. The mares we are using today, are a result breeding choices from awhile ago. The problem is more one of a misunderstanding, then factual. I have many more examples, and suggest a step back will reveal the forest.

                    we COULD have a nice conversation here if you were more versed in the reality. You are certainly titled to an opinion but the stats weigh heavily against your opinion.

                    you make comments like "two legged stool" that are totally false.

                    If you would have stopped making these errant statements you may have learned about my mares and their underwhelming amount of C blood. You may now understand why offense is taken with your comments. Diverse group of mares below.

                    Canturo / Lord / Masetto / Ramiro / Colonel
                    Singulord Joter / Acorado / Ramiro / Landgraf
                    Corrado I / Quidam de revel / Contender / Landgraf
                    Calido / Acorado / Landgraf / Lord / Ramiro
                    Singulord Joter / Acord II / Corrado I / Ramiro
                    Lavaletto / Acord II / Sable Skinflint xx
                    Classe / Acorado / Ramiro / Landgraf
                    Mezcalero / Lavaletto / Acord II / Sable skinflint xx
                    Campesino / Lavaletto / Acord II /Sable Skinflint xx
                    Canturo / Acorado / Ramiro / Landgraf

                    I've bred some of these and bought some of these. These are anything but "two legged stools" and will never be two legged stools.

                    you don't seem to understand that we don't want to get away from C. It is known as the best jumping blood in the world. The C from cottage son xx and the C from Corde la bryere are magical together. They just need something stuck in between every 3rd or 4th generation.

                    People have been saying what you have been saying for the last 30 years. It hasn't happened then and it won't happen now.

                      If 80 percent of the stallions are C lines dont the mare sire line eventually also become C?
                      Conversely if a percentage of mares need a no c line sire but only have 20 percent of the stallion book to pick from does that also raise its own concerns on limited genetic pool?


                      How would one know if you have too much C line (or frankly any one line) in a program?--how would it be manifested?

                        Bayhawk has been talking for years, IIRC, about the outcross blood coming in through F1 mares. If you have a mare who is 50% outcross with few or no duplicates to existing lines, the available sire pool would be far more than 20%, wouldn't it?

                          Here is where the knowledge (or lack there of) comes in Omare. These folks hear bits and pieces of conversations and don't fully understand the meaning.

                          The breeders of Holstein have gotten rich and famous with c&c. It becomes a problem when you have too much Cassini / Contender for example. While this can be a very good sporthorse that is worth a fortune......it can also become a little boxy and heavy.

                          The approach for the future needs to be Cassini / Laval / Contender or Cassini / Heraldik xx / Contender etc. You never need to worry about having too much C......only the Verband needs to worry about this moving forward. Like Harrie non chalantly said......they will open up ever so often when they feel the need.

                          They have the most condensed jumping gene in the world in their mare herd. They will be super careful not to let it escape.

                              Quintero / Cassini II / Fasolt / Lagos stamm 730b. I like the perfect sex balanced line breeding to Caletto II thru his son Chamonix and his daughter Wisma. Beautiful breeding ! I will keep an eye for him.

                                Exactly what I have been saying. The 2 C's are great together--they just need something stuck in between.

                                I love C blood. no one is saying that you and other Holsteiner breeders need to get away from the 2 C lines. I know Holsteiners are an excellent jumper genetics breed and genetics pool. I have never indicated otherwise in this thread or any others.

                                but if the breed looses those M's, L's, R's, A's etc. that are stuck in between (I am assuming you understand genetic generational loss), it will only further concentrate the genetic pool of the 2 C's--further line breed it. It stands to loose the benefits of the genetics behind Marlon, Ladykiller, Ramzes, Alme', etc.

                                Diarado will hopefully become a great future sire for the breed. The combination of new SF blood on Corrado might just infuse new vigor into the population. But whether the breeders use him, and whether he can make strong sons or maybe becomes a sire who makes a line of jumper dams will not be known for at least 10 years.

                                See we do agree--

It stands to loose the benefits of the genetics behind Marlon, Ladykiller, Ramzes, Alme', etc.

                                  This is sad when Wendy's post celebrating a great breeding success, spirals into a banter from the unknowledgeable Holsteiner nay sayers.

                                  Wendy accomplished this very great thing with Bayhawks inputs, he gave her the advice that if you would only listen to, maybe you could learn from.

                                  The Holstein breeders have a recipe for breeding, that has taken, how long, to develop, it works.

                                  Why continue to argue the point. I was going to respond to your original post but ,poof you edited before I got a chance to quote.

                                    but the thread says Holsteiner Verband Korung Stallions. I didn't know if was a private party.

                                    and you don't know me--so don't refer to me as a unknowledgable Holsteiner nay sayer.
                                    those kinds of remarks are petty and not conducive to discussions.
                                    and Bayhawk and I tend to be in agreement.
                                    I can always learn from another breeder--and maybe some could learn from me as well.
                                    you need to be as open to other's views as you expect others to be open to your views.

                                        Yes we do agree then. I understood you were saying there was too much C blood ? There is no such thing in my opinion.

                                        yes ,they must gap it with A , R , L etc. and then they can go right back to it.

                                        Diarado is showing up in his daughters. I think he had more on the elite mare show than any other sire. They had top rideability. I haven't been impressed with the sons anywhere in Europe thus far.

                                          "If you have a mare who is 50% outcross with few or no duplicates to existing lines, the available sire pool would be far more than 20%, wouldn't it?"

                                          I guess my awkward point was that outcrossed mare will be presented to a C line stalllion and have a F1 with a C sire line.

                                          But it seems it is known how to mix and match the c lines.

                                          it certainly points out why one must think generationally in order (among other things) not to paint oneself into a genetic corner with your mare line.
