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.

  • Hano Licensing - observations on results ...

    First off - can't believe how many black or Dk brown stallions got premiums! Is Hano going the way of Oldenburg or Trakehner ??? or are only the dark stallions getting the breedings, influencing the # of dark foals?

    I loved the Soliman de Hus (chestnut --- so he must have been well-liked to get in with the dark boys, ha-ha).

    Regarding damsires, Rotspon again is well represented. This year's high-price went to the Dancier Rotspon son. Last year's big star, De L'or, was also Dancier / Rotspon.

    Also well-represented as damsires, Donnerhall and Furst Heinrich.

    Oh, and among the jumpers - 2 with Contendro as damsire.

    From a sales price standpoint, the stallions with Donnerhall blood seemed to sell for more money.

    I loved the Dancier stallion (18). We should see a lot more of him now that he is going to Schockemohles.

      Being there in person, I do not think color was that much a factor as the premiums, were the ones who did show exceptionaly well over the two days.

      I think the overall quality this year was deeper than in the recent past. I still think we are losing quality of the walk with most of the new pedigrees. The youngsters with Donnerhall blood had the best overall quality of walk, but still are influenced by the balance of the pedigree.

      I was particullary excited about the Diamond Hit. He seemed to have it all. As a performance horse, the Vivaldi was interesting as well as the Royaldik and the Benneton Dream/Grand Cru.

      I wanted to like the Soliman de Hus but he seemed to lose something over the licensing that I think he was tired, so really ended up not caring for him as much.

      Will be an interesting couple of years waiting to see the offspring of this year's crop

        Han Verband has always been a large chestnut breed--much more so than others, except maybe SF. And of course you see the chestnut a lot in the Han dressage lines. Maybe now what you see is the color change due to the outcrossings to some of the Oldbg R & D bloodlines. That may explain the color changes in the younger Han horse crops.

            Vivaldi - That horse was something for the crowds in my eyes or as a friend of mine put it that is a circus horse !

            Color does not play a role in Hanoverian breeding. People seem to be still pretty open if it comes to quality.

            Linked the Quando Quando, the Diamond Hit e.g.
            I was not there for the longing, so I can not really comment in full about the dressage qualities.

              Interesting, I didn't really like the Vivaldi -- a bit lacking substance, pretty but ??

              Loved the Diamond Hit --- but he seems very big-bodied for a 2 1/2 year old. I wonder how he will mature.

                What were the impressions of #16 he seemed very modern and light footed for such a tall colt, I think he will mature into a very nice horse. But he didn't sell for much, so maybe he was not as nice in the flesh as on video. Any thoughts from the folks that saw him. I always like the ones that still look a bit immature at this age.

                  I was impressed with (and like!) the large number of strongly TB influenced colts among those licensed. Lauries Crusador was the dam sire of 4 approved colts (numbers 24, 29, 33 and 48); Langata Express another (number 26), and Albaran the sire of another (number 1). Interestingly, they are all among the dressage-bred colts; none among the jumper colts (even though many of the most potent jumping lines are TB based, e.g., Ladykiller, Furioso, Der Lowe).

                      My favorite for dressage was definitely #51 the Quando Quando/Donnerhall. I liked seeing the Valentino's as I have one coming this Spring. I really like As di Villagana as a stallion and his #70 sold for only 8,500 euro. Does anyone know the story on him? Pm me if you like. ����

                        I liked him quite a bit too. And he is such a cool color, dark liver with a light tail and light lower legs.

                            Does anybody know about #70 As di Villagana? I like As di Villagana as a stallion and am surprised his son sold for only euro 8,500.

                            I guess I'm not alone for my feelings on the Quando-Quando/Donnerhall. He looked vey impressive to me and yes his color is just gorgeous!!

                                Ouch. They were pretty critical of some of the stallions.

                                  Critical yes. But that is how it should be if you ar trying to breed a better horse.
                                  I will say that some of these TWO year olds did have issues conformationaly that were confusing to me as to why they were in the licensing. It was obvious some were breeding quality and some were for performance(these are not always the same as I have posted before in another thread).

                                  The QQ was slightly sickle hocked. Nothing too bad, but for a premium?? I have to admit he was one of my top three picks though.
                                  The Vivaldi was immature and a real front end mover.
                                  The Diamond HIt was the whole package for me, an engine with power, good mind, talent for performance and the type to produce performance horses.
                                  I really liked the Fuerst Grandios. I was happy with him for many reasons. I can see him both for breeding and performance. I would have looked closely at him except that I knew he was going for $$$

                                  However, there was one I looked at for an investment for performance. Nice bloodline, super type, promising athlete, would be interesting blood for USA breeders. BUT----and this shocked me--class 3 films. Aparently 1 of 3 in the licensing. This one did go for good money and above my budget.

                                  So I have to agree with the general content of the article

                                    Slightly off topic, but what do you mean by Class 3 films? I'm guessing bad x-rays?

                                      How were the front legs on the Quando-Quando? It is a bit hard to gauge correctness form the videos they posted (no away and back shots).
