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.

Any new Appaloosa Sport Horse stallions around?

  • Any new Appaloosa Sport Horse stallions around?

    So I know there are quite a few other Appaloosa Sport Horse enthusiasts around. I am finally in a place where I can breed my mare. I have an idea of a stallion, but before I send in that check, wanted to make sure there isn't a new stallion that might be a better fit.

    What I'm looking for:

    Fresh or frozen semen. Appaloosa, Appaloosa Sport Horse, or Knabstrupper stallion. I may also consider a Warmblood that nicks well with her Hanoverian lines or a Thoroughbred that nicks well on her Thoroughbred lines.

    The plans for the baby are an all-around sports horse: eventing (around Training level), combined driving (goal is Advanced level), some show-jumping and dressage.

    Mare in question is a 10 year old Appaloosa Sports Horse. 16.2hh, bay with blanket. What she needs improvement on: more length and correctness of legs (she does paddle a bit), more powerful hind end, stronger loin connection, a prettier head would be a plus. Gaits, I want to keep her fantastic walk, trot could use more hock action, canter needs more reach underneath and power. Temperament-wise, I would like to cool her down while retaining her forwardness and lightness.

    Her pedigree:
    Sire: Chelsea's Ghost, ApHC Foundation

    Dam: Franzia, Oldenburg

    Who are the new Appaloosa Sport Horse stallions? I know that there are some out there but my Google skills are failing me.

    Have you checked out this stallion?

    I don't know what his movement or temperament is like but he sure does have the spots!

        He's not new, but Colorado Skrodstrup would probably fit your list. He is the only Knabstrupper stallion in the world that is approved sBs, RPSI, and KNN. He is also eligible for approval with AES. He is also, I believe, one of only two Knabstruppers in the world that have successfully completed a 70 Day Stallion Performance Test. He was 3rd in Dressage and 5th overall at the testing. He also has competed successfully through fourth level Dressage and Level four in Jumping.

        He has a super temperament and is an absolute blast to ride, as well . For more information as well as photos of some of his offspring, you can check him out here:

        Good luck with whatever stallion you choose!

          !
          According to USEF the highest jumper level he competed in was Level 3.
          The highest dressage level was Second Level test 3.

          Please post the shows he competed in Level 4 in Dressage and Jumpers.

          Of course, it's possible that USEF's record is wrong. In that case as the stallion owner you probably want to get that corrected ASAP. It's public info...

            I do know of Sartors Showtime but never saw a video before, thank you for posting it. If I was looking for just a driving/dressage horse, he'd fit the bill perfectly. But I do want some jump and his bloodlines don't scream jumping even though he and his sire scored well in the jumping portions of their tests. He is one to consider.

            I really like Colorado, but I don't think he and my mare would be the best fit. But he is a really nice horse.

            I've also looked into Upal von Norholm. I really like him but there doesn't seem to be much information out there about him or any of his foals.

                USEF wrong? Say it ain't so! Man...next you're going to tell that there is no Santa Claus <sigh>.

                I will check with his previous owner and correct the information accordingly. Mea culpa if the information is incorrect! Thanks for the heads up!

                    Colorado Skrodstrup

                    I know you said you don't think he would be right for your mare, but I have to put in a nod for Colorado Skrodstrup for any other Spotted stallion fans out there. I handled one of his foals this year for his RPSI inspection and fell in love with him. He is beautiful marked, put together well, dances when he moves and the best part is what a ham he is. If I was in the market for foal, I would be snatching him up. He is sure going to get his rider noticed in the ring. Good luck with who ever you choose

                      I really like Hollywood Hot Spot. He's very high up on the list, however, I would like to see him over fences. I'm planning to contact his owner to get her input.

                      I've noticed all the Appaloosa stallions I'm interested in all have a very high xx percentage and all the Knabstrupper stallions have high percentage Warmblood breeding.

                        Waps Rolls Royce

                        Even though he is touted as the "Hunter" of the Wap line, he has what it takes to be a great all-around sire. He sticks a true 16.2, with good body, great bone, great legs. Hind legs on the Rolls kids are excellent, heads are gorgeous, and he always seems to improve the topline. The solid colored offspring are consistently mistaken for warmbloods.

                        He has a 2012 filly out a Landgraf bred mare, and she is stunning. I have broke and started 3 of my own, all pace/chase/jump fantastic. The coming 5yo did very well on the HB line as a yearling, and cleaned up local(unrated) hunter shows her 3yo year. She is in foal to a Roemer son for 2013. We sold our 2008 gelding as a 3yo, shortly after he completed a schooling event at Elementary level(2'3) with ease. Super hind leg on that boy!

                        His offspring are starting to speak for him. There is a JG Waps Fan page on Facebook:
                        http://www.facebook.com/groups/204722799714/
                        Waps Rolls Royce has his own page as well:
                        http://www.facebook.com/pages/Waps-R...ref=ts&fref=ts

                        And so I'm not just plugging for Rolls, I have a 2008 Wap Spot filly that was started this summer, and jumps small courses with ease, hacks out the best, hunter paced a few times, and carts around an 8yo around the ring.

                          On this line, since I just bid on a breeding to Colorado and got it, I would love to know anyone with personal experience with him or his get. I really, really, really like spots and would like to get back to riding them in upper level dressage. DO you think he adds or takes away movement? (NICE moving mares.) The height is an issue with me. Does he throw bigger? What percentage in reality has he thrown of color with solid mares?

                            There are several photos on his offspring page that hopefully will help you a bit. Colorado was imported a few years back, and up until we got him, he had only had a handful of foals here in N.A. This year was really the first "real" foal crop, so we had a bit more opportunity to see what he actually produces out of a variety of mares. So far, I think the general consensus is that he has certainly not taken away movement, but has definitely added some movement with several different mares.

                            (NICE moving mares.) The height is an issue with me. Does he throw bigger?
                            That I think will probably be a "time will tell". The filly we have will probably mature around 16:2, but her dam was about that. We currently have a colt here out of a mare that is about 15:1 that will probably finish close to 16 hands. But the filly is a yearling and the colt is a weanling, so it's just too early to really know for sure.

                            What percentage in reality has he thrown of color with solid mares?
                            Statistically he "should" throw color 50% of the time. The reality is that all but one foal this year was colored. The filly we had last year, out of a Selle Francais mare (mare was plain bay) we thought she was plain bay like her mum, but she is varnishing and has a few scattered spots this year. It will be interesting to see what she looks like next year.

                            You can see some of his "kids" here: http://www.avalon-equine.com/offspri...ashdstrup.html

                                Kathy--I've been ALL over your web page and Colorado's stuff. Believe me! And I will be emailing you and talking to a lot once Sonesta gets the check in the next few days.

                                No history before he was imported? No babies there? Since he's 13, you'd think there'd be something.

                                        Waps Rolls Royce is pretty high on my list. I've already contacted the owner of Cloverlone and waiting to hear back. I'll have to look more into Pegasus and Wapuzzan.

                                        I only have outdated pics of my girl. Most are from her 4 year old year when I bought her. I'm not a big picture taker, plus it's hard to ride and take a picture at the same time!

                                        Here's the most current: Fanci at 8 years

                                        From 4 years old:
