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!

  • KWPN Stallion suggestions

    I am looking for KWPN stallion suggestions for my new mare I just got. She is a KWPN STER mare by Rhodium and out of a mare by Don Primaire (Donnerhall)line.
    She is a really nice mare overall, but if I am being picky the two things I would like to improve the most on her is her neck as it is sufficient in length but a bit deep at the base. The second thing is her trot could use more elevation, it leans towards being a bit more huntery than dressage in type.

    I have been looking at different KWPN stallions but it seems quite a few have poor quality frozen semen. I would like to stick with frozen if possible so if there are any suggestions for KWPN stallions that freeze really well and might compliment her please let me know.

    Johnson? I am not sure what his breeding values are for neck but he should improve the trot. I like him a lot!

    FWIW I saw a nice Uphill colt the other day from a Ferro mare. Lots of knee and expression in the front legs and a lovely neck.

      There's several great KWPN stallions with decent frozen.

      Lord Leatherdale (you can even get a LFG with his through Hilltop Farm)
      Negro (again through Hilltop w/LFG)

      There's also Sir Sinclair, UB40, and possibly Contango through Iron Spring Farm, and Rousseau through Hassler Dressage.

        Diamond A here in Alberta has some Negro and (I cant remember if its Chippendale or Lord Leatherdale) I believe they store it at Equistar...

          Rousseau and Negro are both by Ferro as is Rhodium.... I would assume that Cindy isn't looking to double up on Ferro like that?

          FWIW I know you are looking for KWPN and frozen but after seeing pics of her on your facebook page I think she would be amazing to Wolkentanz II. She clearly has a very strong back (which I think WII needs in a mare) and he consistantly throws really super necks and great movement. Maybe if you need a fresh backup (hopefully not but you never know)...?

            Have you looked at Wynton? He's Jazz x Matador x Rubinstein and is competing GP age 9. A friend used his frozen a couple of years ago and got a pregnancy from 1 cycle and a very smart foal.


            • #7
              A friend of mine also got a pregnancy with Wynton (frozen).

                ...so wish that Pandoer had his KWPN approval. His bloodlines are just stellar and he is out of one of the top three mare lines in Holland....

                  Thanks everyone for the suggestions! No I would prefer to not double up on Ferro. I do really like Johnson but for some reason thought when I saw a conformation picture a while back his neck tied in a bit deep as well? I will have to go and check him out again.

                  I am glad to hear Wynton has good semen. I have been looking into him. I was also thinking possibly Sandreo might be a good match for her? I also like 007 though he has been around a long time and foals might not be as marketable as the up and coming new boys.

                  Equistar has Lord Leatherdale that they use there. However, I would prefer to do my own frozen so would have to look at purchasing it somewhere else if I chose to go with him. But he is nice as well.

                  I really liked Charmeur but heard his frozen is iffy so crossed him off my list.

                  Thanks Donella for the suggestion of Wolkentanz II. I know your foals you had were lovely by him! I would prefer to stay KWPN but you never know, sometimes if the breeding year doesn't quite as one intended a fresh cooled backup plan is a good thing, lol.

                    If you're in the US... I have Imothep frozen for 2013 and can offer Dakota VDL frozen though not listed as such since he will be standing for fresh.

                    For frozen we also have Vegas (also fresh), Twisther, Victor E, Orbatello, Egrando Van't Heike and Commando ES.

                    All superb stallions, but Orbatello, Egrando, & Commando are not KWPN stallions.....

                      We used Charmeur (Florencio x Jazz) in 2012 with success. We got an ET pregnancy from a 3 year old maiden mare with a single dose using deep horn insemination on the hour of ovulation. After seeing this incredible stallion perform at Verden last summer, I can hardly wait for this foal to be born. I am planning to repeat this breeding in 2013.


                      We are also expecting an ET foal in 2012 from a single dose of Don Tango (Contango x Jazz) semen. A friend has an 18 year old mare who also conceived with a single dose of Don Tango. My repro vet bred both of these mares using the same protocol.


                      Lastly, the wonderful KWPN approved stallion, Connaisseur (Con Amore x Donnerhall), has just been imported to Vancouver, Canada and he will be available to North American breeders in 2013. This 5 year old stallion is approved with four different European registries, including the KWPN. Despite his young age, he was very successful as both a breeding stallion and performance horse in Holland. He was ridden for the past two years by Charmeur's rider, Emmelie Scholtens, and finished 6th at the PAVO Cup finals in 2012. His owner is in the process of updating her website with current breeding information.
