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!

    Too bad L&L...would be easier to get semen if Rocrossifred was your's...LOL

    Yes Nootka I am so very excited about my Bon Balou xSpring Silk foal next 'spring'. Hoping for a *filly* but will take healthy of either sex!

    Actually I am excited about all 3 foals that are due next spring...one Bon Balou, one Freestyle and one Banderas.

    I read/speak only 'un peu français' unfortunately...handicapped I am!
    So will have to get the gal who does my web page, who is pretty fluent in french, (she lived in Montreal as a young person), to inquire for me.

          Have you thought about non WBs at all? It would depend on your mare's type, but if you are looking for a refiner, there are excellent pinto American Saddlebreds standing in the USA.

          We breed them here in Australia for dressage, and imported a lovely homozygous pinto stallion who is producing lovely types with super temperaments, fronts and movement.

          The oldest is a 2 year old, she went for warmblood assessment as a yearling with Tonne Bockmann giving her 8's for type, topline and front.

          Piccie here:

          We are obviously not in your locale but our stallion's sire is in the USA and he is a very consistent producer to the right type of mare, produced a lot of champions at national and world's levels - not necessarily the traditional sports but the qualities transfer across nicely to the more traditional disciplines

            In my younger days I rode some saddlebreds...alas no pintos<grin>. Had a lot of fun.
            However I breed to sell my foals, and there is a very strong bias against saddlebreds, at least here in Canada, in the jumper/dressage market.
            Foals sell best with pretty 'traditional' bloodlines...at least as traditional as tobiano pinto gets!
            I am looking to use one or two European tobiano Warmblood stallions via frozen in the spring if all goes well.

              That surprises me, our pinto Saddlebreds are sold when they hit the ground (or in this year's case, before they are bred).

                I'm loving this thread. 100 years ago I bred a few pinto warmbloods. They were considered a bit freakish back then! I remember very nearly buying some Rainbow semen (I had a VHS video tape of him that I nearly wore out!) but couldn't find a vet here that was knowledgable enough to give frozen semen a go.

                I moved away from funky colours but never really got it out of my system.
                Lately I have been thinking about breeding another WB pinto and this thread is very informative.

                Chess M was the horse I was hoping to use. I would have liked to have seen more of what he produces. What happened to him in Australia?
                Sad news indeed.

                  So Palladio, as a grandson of Samber, can be crossed back to many horses with Samber back in their pedigree...just depends on how far back it is on your mare...he is the kindest stallion ever and doesn't jump to shabby either, lol!
                  Our two younger stallions do get the Samber even further back....
                  Palldio Blu CF, homozygous for pinto, is Palladio o/o premium Rainbow dam.

                  At the 70 day test right now we currently have Painted CF who is Palladio x a premium Gonzo I x TB dam....we're super excited about having the Gonzo I lines in there as that guy was one of my all time favorites and his mother is just a gem!

                  Don't know if those boys get the Samber far enough back for you but they both have that lovely Palladio way about them...I know Pallido Blu's very first foal was born this year from an Art Deco mare and she is just stunning. That was an amazing cross and did double up on Samber!

                  We were getting Painted started this year so didn't breed any mares to him. I'm really eager to see what he puts on the ground!

                  Good luck!
