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!

  • A line stallions?

    What is out there (both in Europe and US) and what are the main plus points of each A line stallion?

    Aside from Argentinus I am not very familiar with this line, but I seem to keep falling in love with their products.

        The A line going back to Absatz is known for getting the Absatz "charm". He was one of the refining stallions of the Hanoverian breed. They are known to be smart athletic horses with a great trot and an aptitude for both jumping and dressage. I owned an A line gelding who was an amazing horse for me to learn on.

        One thing I would be curious to know is whether there is a tendency for the line to toe in as many of the ones I have known seem to.

            If you're talking Absatz/Akzent II then ALABASTER.

            I love my girl, she's the best. Frozen works well ... I should know I have one. Alabaster is ancient now but he's proving so useful on the dam lines of some very nice horses (two at the Bundeschampionat I noticed this year .... one by Stedinger the other by Fidertanz) thinking of putting him over my R/D mare for a wow foal. Can't beat the beauty, charm, temperament, try and fancy long trot on my Alabaster girl.

            There's a lovely young stallion here who is a 3/4 brother to Jaybee Alabaster but out of a Don Schufro mare that I am keeping an eye on. Also Abanos has been quite successful.

              All three descend from Absatz.

              In addition, our flagship stallion Waldaire carries Absatz in his dam line. His son Wizard WF carries Absatz both from Waldaire and his damsire Again and Again.

                Is there semen from Alabaster still available?

                What about Alabastro? Just looked at a video from him and was really impressed. Plus it seems his scores were amazing.

                  Yes, Celle sells the Alabaster semen. Don't know about Alabastro. I had a colt by Alabaster (Longchamp/Maurice dam). Sweetest boy ever. 3 top gaits and good type.
                  Celle semen will be available from the Canadian Hanoverian Society this year.

                    It's available in Australia from Celle so yeah, assumed it would be the same in the US. It's funny, it's like Alabaster is way more popular in Australia for some reason than it is anywhere else ... we have had Jaybee Alabaster who obviously has left a big mark, but I know quite a lot of frozen products. My mare is just terrific ... she is nearly six and just everything you could hope for, probably the sweetest horse I have ever met. Thoroughly recommended

                        I don't know about the charm, but he does show up in almost all modern horse's "pedigrees"!

                              None of our have toed in, even in their old age. That can be a result of sidebone formation.

                                I have the sweetest fanciest moving mare out of Anhaltiner E. She is as modern as they come and a dream to ride. Just the right amount of sensitivity. Highly recommend him as well and Suzanne Quarles is great to work with.
                                The rider casts his heart over the fence,
                                the horse jumps in pursuit of it.

                                  I also have 2 Anhaltiner E (Akzent II/Pik Bube/Freiherr; http://www.somedaysoonfarm.com/pages%20new/anhalt.html) mares that I love and are terrific athletes -- fancy movement and can jump; one got 9s on her jumping in her MPT. (Neither toe in.) In my observation of horses from the A-line, they: are usually very pretty, frequently are chestnut, are athletic, have suspension and light-footed trots, have somewhat flatter knees at the trot, are not dull.

                                    Like Dennis said no toeing in. In fact she has the most correct legs all the way around of any horse I have ever owned. Can you tell I adore her?

                                      Yes. When I did research for breeding my Trak mare to a Han I ended up picking a stallion what was line bred several times to the A-line. The stallion Abglanz was a Trak that was line bred to the stallion Tempelhüter, which my Trak mare also was. I was looking at try to find similar lines. There is also Lateran another Trak who influence the Han line and can be seen in some top horse up closer.
                                      My mare also has a TB influence, that ironically had similar ancestors to the Tb's that were used in Han and Trak breeding (way back).
                                      People say WB are mutts but if you really go through the pedigrees (I did a bit pedigree work for a registry) they are not that diversified at all. There is differences in type more than anything but because of the different regions and mare base but the animals that were used to continually shape the groups are fairly similar.
