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!

  • Yet another 'Help Me Pick a Stallion' thread

    I am having a tough time finding a date for my big Danish mare, Chiquita Thais, for next year.
    She is a substantial gal at just over 17.1 and is basically a mountain of a mare.
    She has a fabulous jump, great movement.
    Her back is a tad long, her head is unfortunate but not offensive. She has ears that would make a donkey proud.
    I breed for the hunter ring. It would be a plus if the foal is pretty enough to do the hunter breeding but the main goal is to get a hunter.
    So, lets hear who (or is it whom?) you would choose for Chiquita.
    She is in foal now to Redwine. She was bred to Zarr earlier in the year but lost it at 30 days.
    Frozen or fresh.
    Here is one photo - I need to resize the others.

        She is lovely, I was admiring her pictures from her inspection on TOC!

        I have two rather substantial girls myself, and chose to use Dacaprio for them to make hunter babies in '09. A few others that I considered are Landfriese, Pablo, Donatelli, and Cabardino. I think they all have some refining type traits to offer.

        Good luck!

                I don't even have to say it.... but another vote for Donatelli. First a hugely sucessful GP dressage horse and now he's winning in the Pre-Green hunters now in Canada and supposed to be doing the First Years this coming spring. Don't think you could ask for much more versatility than that. Our Telli foals have all moved famously and he has consistently improved the type on heavier mares that need a better head. There are several videos on YouTube if you search "Donatelli stallion". He has several offspring showing GP jumpers in Germany right now so the jump is all there.

                Pablo also as someone mentioned. I also love Royal Prince for type.

                  She is a maiden. She is pregnant with her first foal now (Redwine).

                  Great suggestions. I completely forgot about Carbardino. Love him.
                  Sig - Why am I not suprised about you suggesting Donatelli? I love the foals you have bred by him.

                            LOL, your big Danish mare sounds EXACTLY like my big Danish mare.

                            I bred Tropica to Concorde B to fix much of what you want to fix and to improve as well.

                            She's due next April - I'll share foal pics to see if Concorde B will work for you :-)

                              Ronda - I will be anxiously awaiting your Danish mares Concorde B foal.

                              Spacely - I have Escudo I on my short list (and in the semen tank!) but am waiting to see what Della produces with him first.
                              I was considering crossing her with a tb and maybe with JTB being part thoroughbred that might work. Not sure if he is known to shorten backs. I will have to go searching.
                              I went to Jones Hall's site and noticed he is For Sale. Boy if that did not get me day dreaming!

                                The aforementioned Escudo II might be a neat option too. It is so nice to have those big, stout mares but then it's so hard to produce a modern type from them sometimes. Also Regazzoni has produced many nice hunter types and freaky movers.

                                Do look back through her lineage and do some research into her breeding. Just because she is bigger/heavier herself, look back further and see what is there as sometimes they don't reproduce it, and likewise a mare that does not look heavy with a heavy background may throw it. Of course, it's hard to know before you see her first foal! Based on his first foals in the US I'd say Redwine was a good choice for her type wise.

                                Frozen.... how about Escudo I, or honestly our Renaissance colt is turning out to be quite lovely. Of course he is out of a stout TB mare, but the stallion himself has a good portion of TB blood. There is still frozen available and we had a pregnancy on the first and only dose. Ruiz Soler?

                                Edited to add, since we were posting at the same time, I do quite like the types on the JTB babies. They are definitley stamped. The TB blood would serve her well I think.

                                    Ahh yes, bloodlines. Sorry about that.
                                    She is by Castro (Calypso I/ Landgraf I) and out of a mare named Sabine-A(Saskibard II / Alf) I know nothing about her dam line at all.
