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!

      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.

      I too have seen a few around here, also conceived via frozen semen. I think it was bad one year but since then it has been ok? There were a coupe of Dancier's in the Elite auction in Verden when I was there ...all were smaller and very light/modern with very pretty heads and a really light way of moving. Definitely "ladies" horses. Dr. Brockmann mentioned that he sometimes throws necks that are too long...so something to keep in mind. Interesting about the temperament....

        What does Hochadel bring to the table?

        I haven't looked into him a whole bunch but I loved him when he came to Spruce and then we saw him again a few weeks ago in the Celle stallion parade. He is very impressive with lots of presence and masculinity and showed lots of talent under saddle. He can piaffe and passage very, very well. He is quite substantial, with a huge neck and a beautiful Trakehner style head/neck and expression. He is quite interesting to me but I don't know what type of mare he would need...

          HyperionStud, you're quite welcome! It's funny you should mention Imothep as a possibility, because he's the one I looked at at least twice when checking out your boys. You wouldn't happen to have a short video of him showing his gaits?

              I'm surprised about the Dancier comment re. temperament. I thought the horses I saw in Germany at the auction seemed steady and easy, but of course they were well ridden. All of them were, and not all of them (or even many) gave me the feeling they would be a steady ride.

              I haven't made any decisions about breeding, but I'm intrigued by Lissaro van de Helle, Dancier, Deveraux, and Grey Top. I have liked him since his licensing, and I saw a couple of really nice foals by him.

                  breeding decisions for 2013????? I'm still recovering from the stress of making choices for 2012...it's so hard!!

                  I'd love to breed to Sir Gregory again. I love this years foal.

                  Anxiously awaiting what the Checkmate/Riverman/Nimmerdor will look like. Riviera is a maiden mare, so don't know how she will produce. Love that stallion on a bit of an older fashioned mare, so we'll see what happens. If I love it, I will repeat.

                  Going back to my old favourite Oxford again this year. He's not the newest most trendy option, but I love every foal he's put on the ground for me, very good movers, incredible brains. A good proven producer. The new owners and their coaches just LOVE them.

                  I love my Westportes. I have a 2 and 4 year old and very happy with how they have developed and may go with him again. The two year old is spectacular, and the 4 year old is super super cute and so very rideable. She's got good gaits, a nice jump is super brave and willing.

                  I'm looking for tall, very modern, more dressage type stallions with a long front leg and pretty head, if anyone has any suggestions...preferrably in Canada.

                    What about Fabregas (Florencio/De Niro) he is in Ontario, near Guelph I believe, and has a very pretty head and nice long legs. Also had a very successful year competing at Devon.

                        I finally got my husband to agree to let me breed my First Class daughter. Due to a pasture accident, she is peek a boo sound and may never jump again. Since she was custom bred for me, I would love to breed her to Jupiter for a smaller hunter to take her place as my personal horse.

                          All that I know so far is that we will be breeding Julia du Brio (Diamant Rouge II x Kapoc) to Olympic Ahorn.

                          The other girls will have to wait to find out who their dates will be.

                              I think that Soprano by Sandro Hit has to be the most under rated stallion in the country. He gives the best of both worlds, jumping and dressage. My Soprano filly has such natural jumping ability that it is scary. Read what his daughters are doing in Europe. His owner can be a little quirky but he is very good to deal with, he is very down to earth.

                                WEll, I just won the charity auction, so I guess I'm breeding. Gonna make a Swedestrupper. I want SPOTS. Does anyone have any Colorado babies? I want spots in dressage.

                                Should I breed to mom? Super Swedish bloodlines, dad was in Olympics, super mover, pain in the ass mare personality, 15.3 (too small for me), but SUPER to ride when preggos (would prefer her to be competing 4th/PSG next year), is a SUPER broodmare, super easy babies, always has them at 337 days. Concern is I don't want to take away from her movement, and size.

                                Or daughter. Or daughters. I have two out of mom by Freestyle. Four year old is about 16.2/3 now and got a lot of growing, started in May, went to shows between 60 and 90 days under saddle and pretty much was spectacular, won high points, and just on that ended up 20th in the country. Super sweet, mellow, fluid mover and plenty of talent for dressage.

                                Other daughter will be three in spring, and is probably even a nice mover and will be bigger. Same wonderful personality. I don't ride them at all until 4, so this would be good.

                                Suggestions?

                                  I am 95% sure I am going to breed my mare to Bosh Blue. With all the stallions I have been drooling over, I just keep coming back to him!!

                                  I am still on the fence about breeding another mare...we will see...

                                    There is lots of jumping video that shows his trot and canter online. I can get more video of him just moving around at home if you would like. What makes Imothep so interesting for the dressage mare is his powerful hind end/ impulsion, and his upward elastic movement. His champion foal from this year came out of an Idocus mare. He was champion at his inspection and reserve champion in NA for KWPN.

                                    The wonderful thing about this stallion is that he crosses well with many different types of mares. All of the foals get that floating movement, powerful gait, easy temperament and beautiful looks.

                                    Again, food for thought! I even think that matched with the right mare you can breed him to hunter types as well. Speaking of hunter types, I also think that our stallion Dakota VDL can produce the same! It becomes an interesting dichotomy!

                                          He's very nice. I've seen him in the showring and is definitely one to keep in mind. For the mare I had in mind, I'd like a bit more size.
