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.

  • Color question: chestnut TB stallion, sabino?

    I love to browse the stallion ads on the Bloodhorse stallion register. I stumbled across this guy earlier today: Sweet Return (GB) and I'm very intrigued by his color. He's chestnut with jagged high whites-- obviously sabino -- and with marked roaning all over his topline.

    Is the roaning from the sabino? Or something else? And where did this color come from in the pedigree...? His sire is a pretty normal chestnut; he's got some odd low hind pastern white, but otherwise ordinary coat (no roan). Paternal grandsire Diesis is a normal chestnut with some white. Maternal grandsire Claude Monet is the same-- a chestnut with white.

    So... where'd the roan come from?

    I believe it's a byproduct of the rabicano gene, which is often seen concurrently with the sabino gene.

      Interesting! This thread caught my eye as my dark chestnut TB is starting to get white hairs mixed in on the top of his rump. He has 2 stockings, not jagged, one sock, a star and some bend or spots. His mane and tail are are half dark chestnut, and half strawberry roan colored. Really- its not sun bleaching.

      I am a TB person, and know nothing about color, so I am always curious on these threads

        Not sure what you mean by "jagged" but I'm curious about this as well, having just picked up this 5 y.o. TB mare:
        Money Holder

        From a distance she looks like a chestnut, but you get up close and her entire body has roaning, very significantly so around her face. The little girls who work at the barn and are new to horses said, "ooh! Look how white her face is. She must be old!"

        I've always been a plain ol' bay kind of girl and this is my first experience with a horse with chrome, so I'm curious about what genes are at play with her.
        I have no idea what either of her parents looked like. I've searched the web but can't find a photo.

          I would guess at the Roberto/Hail To Reason. I have a mare like this by Hail The Pirates (Hail To Reason).

            The white in his coat is definitely Rabicano. It's a more than typical presentation, but not as extreme as some I've seen.

            he is ALSO Sabino, as attested to by the upward jag of his socks.

            I also strongly believe he's Splash as well - probably caused the loud leg white, and the shape of his face white lends to Splash as well.

              Sabino often has roan (different from true roan) attached to it, and as mentioned it is often seen with rabicano.
              Sometimes it will manifest just a little in the flanks and sometimes it is quite extensive.
              Likely if you could see one of the parents in person you would see some roaning on one of them.

              Some lines carry the sabino gene, some don't.

                Well, it's not "roan attached" to Sabino, it's the Sabino causing the roaning. They are one and the same, it's just a matter of how it's presented

                Rabicano roaning can look pretty dramatically different from Sabino roaning. Usually if you see the roaning in the flanks, that's from Rabicano. Sabino tends to be more or less generalized, where Rabicano tends to be localized. If you see roaning in front of the shoulders - Sabino. Rabicano stops at the barrel area.

                  Agree'd on Roberto/Hail to Reason line.

                  We have a few interestingly coloured TB's without those lines which is seemingly adding some rarity to them.

                  I also agree the roaning is more relative to the Sabino, IMO. Roaning caused by Sabino usually looks more like flecks of snow on top of the body, while Rabicano will be more in the flank area.. of course, there are exceptions to every "rule".. :P

                    Huh. The shape of his face white?

                    Would you call this sabino or splash?

                      I have a yearling TB colt like this: (I need to get some updated pic's of him) http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images...ownloadom.jpg/

                      Pedigree: http://www.pedigreequery.com/machiato+g

                      As a long yearling he now has roaning from his hips to his shoulders and also has a small skunk tail thing going on. I figure it should be interesting to see how he sheds out in spring. LOL Comes from his dad. Dad was minimal and just had a slight bit of roaning at the flank you had to look for but does have the skunk tail as well. Here's the sire: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images...ationphot.jpg/
                      This is the dam with my colts full sibling who ended up being minimal as well (no star, nada, but two little hind socks like parents): http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images...0120large.jpg/

                        Lovely stallion! Interesting on the Diesis connection through the sire line. I was looking at a mare to buy years ago by Diesis and she had a big bald face and 4 high whites so he seems to be a contributing factor as well

                          Splash due to the overall shape, with Sabino adding some jaggedness to the edge Splash likes smooth lines.

                            Hmmm, interesting. I have a rabicano stallion with white from his ears to his striped tail, and three low socks, star, and snip (dark brown). I bred him to a chestnut sabino Bit Of Class daughter, and the bay foal didn't have a speck leg white and just a narrow blaze.

                              Our 2012 colt ArtrageousBling has tons of roaning throughout his coat as well as unusual leg white (thank you Marquetry!) You can't see the roaning in the picture, but you can see the other weird white:

                                I knew before looking at his pedigree that he had to go to Marquetry LOL That "weird white" is very typical of what that stallion does

                                  The TB stallion Copelan was notorious for passing on extensive white from a sabino gene. He got it from his dam, Susan's Girl. Here's a pic of 2 of my girls: http://i81.photobucket.com/albums/j2...P1010019-1.jpg

                                  The bay is by Copelan, the chestnut has Copelan as a dam sire (grandfather on bottom). The bay has roaning below the fetlock on both hind legs, and the chestnut has several Bend Or spots scattered around, as well as a couple random white spots. If you look at my bay mare and then check out the picture of Susan's Girl on her pedigree page, you'll see the striking similarity.
                                  http://www.pedigreequery.com/susans+girl Susan's Girl has The Tetrarch a ways back, but not sure if that's where she got the sabino from or if someone closer-in also passed it down.

                                    Susan's Girl is (also) Splash, and when that teams up with another form of Splash, or possibly even with Sabino, the results can be very dramatic

                                    I wish there were pictures of SG's more immediate family

                                    Bull Lea was certainly a moderate Splash. So were Olympia and Blenheim.

                                      Thanks JB for sharing all your knowledge! I'm not a huge color fanatic, but I do like some white...and I think it's fascinating to learn the different patterns and where they come from.

                                      Interesting about the Copelan sabino-- I've noticed most Rockport Harbors have a good bit of white on them... I assumed it came from the Unbridled's Song, but maybe it actually comes from his dam (Regal Miss Copelan, by Copelan).


                                      Curious, JB, what would you call Carnivalay's "clown face?" My mare by Carnivalay has a white stripe, pink nose, and two low socks. She's in foal to a sire who tends to consistently throw "normal" white... is there a chance I could get a foal with something unusual? Does the splash/sabino often skip or hide for a generation or two?

                                        One picture I managed to find online a while back is of the mare Regal Miss Copelan (by Copelan; pictured here with her colt by Summer Bird). Another great example of the prepotency of him passing on the white from SG...
