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!

    It is an addiction, no doubt about it !

    I just got back from a few weeks in Germany so have a couple of stallions that I am really interested in using. I really liked all of these stallions in the flesh..the real problem is narrowing it down:

    De Niro and Danone II

    I am also super impressed with Damsey who is turning out to be a rising GP superstar in Germany. I am 99 percent sure I will use him this year.

            I thought I was pretty close but there are some exciting new stallions I really like, like Montaro OHF and Edward Scissorhands D'Avalon.

            I have really been leaning towards A Fine Romance or perhaps a repeat to Concerto Grosso or Formula One for my eventing bred mare Casey Darling. Glad I have plenty of time to figure it out!

              I was just thinking about this the other day

              Winsome Jolina (Coconut Grove/Solid Silver) to Cartier R (Cassini I/Acorado)

              Cachinka Hero (Radco d'Houtveld/Chin Chin) to Cartier R (if the 2013 foal is as nice as i think it will be

              Rapunzehl (Contender/Landgraf) to Cartier R

              Oiselle M (Quinar/Lantaan) to Cartier R

              Tropica (Come Back II/Astaire) to Cartier R or Abrikos if I decide to try for dressage

              Venezia (Voltaire/Joost) to Diabolo d'Esquelmes (Chin Chin/Carthago)

              Osine (Lux Z/Burggraaf) to Diabolo

              Portia (Pikadero/Prinz Gaylord) to Valentino Z (Darco/Feo)

              Jennibelle's Noble Pride (Cielo B/Larrumpin) to Jus d'O (Quincy/Dollar de la Pierre)

              Capriana (Contucci/Martini) to Esteban (Idocus/Flemmingh)

              Stars Above (Royal Hibernian/Best of Luck) - I'm undecided. Maybe Figaro B (Pavarotti vd Helle/Wellington) or Esteban or Cartier R. Or maybe a repeat to Deja Blue because the filly from that cross was awesome!

                I am also addicted!
                I have questions about two stallions- does anyone have successful Dancier pregnancies? Any pros and cons about him?

                I have already decided to use Diamond Hit with one mare, and hoping that Soliman de Hus is available for another mare.

                What does Hochadel bring to the table?

                  So perhaps the lines can be melted away and we could do it?!

                    This year I am pretty set on breeding my Rotspon-Davignon mare to His Highness for an ET. However, with the success of the Dancier-Rotspon crossings I have toyed with that too....but his frozen is not great and I am not that big a gambler for ET

                    2014 I am leaning on breeding my Davignon-Matcho mare to Quaterback...

                      We are sort of looking at Zonik for a Sandro Hit mare. And Fürstenball for a Quaterback mare.

                        Just one for 2013:
                        Catoki to Viv (Cardento/Calando) Stamm 776

                        I'd love to do an ET with my Coconut Grove/Solid Silver mare but not in the cards for this year.

                          Have you seen Quadrunar (I may have spelled this wrong) Quaterback x Sandro Hit? He is yummy!! Unfortunately for me not approved Hanoverian.....yet

                            I know I want to breed one of my mares just have not decided which mare-
                            My 16 year old warmblood maiden mare is one that I would love a foal from but not sure about breeding an older mare. If I breed her I will either use In Shining Armor,RID or Rosario.
                            If I breed my ISH Mare I will breed her to Rosario or possibly a warmblood with jumper lines. I got a colt by Rosario out of her this year and I really like him and would like a filly out of her.

                            So to answer your question, I sort of know what I want to do next year but still a lot of indecision.

                              Thinking of sticking with Canadian stallions this year to not have to deal with the CEM issue (although I love Edgar and his stallions )
                              • holsteiner mare Winter Eve (Chaka Khan / xx) to Candillo Junior
                              • Purchased a new mare Garcia (Gervantus II / Wodan / xx) in foal to Portland L for 2013. Have seen photos of a colt from same cross and hoping for a repeat ...if so, may do the cross again.

                                It is Quadroneur. I believe he comes from the same damline as Poetin.

                                  Planning on repeating the Negro cross with our Flemmingh mare for 2014 foal; expecting the same in Spring 2013. We like our 2012 colt that much.

                                      Peg, there's a vet in MA, Dr Anne Schmidt, who has gotten Dancier pregnancies.

                                      As for my breeding plans, I'll be breeding my new Donnerhall mare to Royal Prince. :-)

                                        I sold my last Dancier last spring because the semen had never worked for my mares. My buyer's mare is now pregnant to Dancier.

                                          We have had several Dancier foals at our inspections over the past few years, so semen can't be too bad. From what I hear (and see) Dancier can sire fabulous foals, and also some plain ones. Not consistent. I would also look for a good temperament in the mare, as he doesn't necessarily add that to the equation.
