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.

  • TB mare pedigree

    I know these things get really old, but I haven't heard of alot of these horses in this mare's pedigree, so I'd love some help and opinions! =) My friend is getting this girl as a broodmare and she was used for eventing, barrels, poles, etc and she has a really nice jump when I looked at her pictures. Supposedly level headed and throws paints (I believe she was bred to an APHA stallion before), she is a chestnut sabino with high whites and a big blaze.

    Would love opinions on her pedigree. Thank you so much!

    What a lovely mare. Gorgeous eye, perfect technique. I wouldn't change a thing except to add a hair more substance. (Then she would be Oh Star). And while I am wildly against random breeding, I hope the TB gurus and/or the October Hill peeps see this and chime in. There are some obvious classic names in there and contrary to many, I love me some Northern Dancer.

      Thank you, nutmeg! =) I can't wait to meet her for sure, my friend agreed to let me breed her for an Anglo foal (I've been dying to get my own Anglo foal for a while now), so I'm hoping she'll pass on her athletic jump! I, too, am hoping that more people will comment on her pedigree or on her in particular.

        What a fancy mare!!

        I'm no pedigree expert, but this is what I have in my notes regarding these stallions...

        Star de Naskra-sport

        TV Lark-jump

        Swaps- soundness, eventers

        Quadrangle-hunter

        I also hope one of the experts comes on because I'd love to hear more, too.

              This is the kind of TB mare that NEEDS to produce sport horses. She's lovely and her pedigree is close to spectacular.

              Good and very rare things that make her special:
              1) Starbird Glacier is the sire of Eventing Olympian Jil Walton's mare who was shown advanced as recently as this year. Horse's name is My Sedona. What is rather interesting is that the damsire of My Sedona was Sauce Boat who was tail female to Uvira.
              2) There are two German sister Hanoverian eventing mares who have Star de Naskra in their dam lines. They have had relatively long careers at the Intermediate and Prelim levels.
              3) Tail female to Uvira. She is one of the greatest mare lines for sport there is. The stallion A Fine Romance has her as sire's tail female as well. Remember that there is a 50% chance that the sire's X chromosome will appear intact in a filly, so a Sauce Boat filly might have the Uvira line X chromosome instead of the one that comes through the dam's dam. Uvira is probably most famous in sport as the dam of Missy Baba.
              4) Buffalo Lark/TV Lark. This is a good line for jumping, but more important, it is an EXCELLENT line for long term soundness. Buffalo Lark's progeny either had VERY short racing careers or they lasted forever.
              5) Cornish Prince is always nice to see, as is Bold Ruler. Cornish Prince was the sire of Patelin, a blue hen mare; and his dam was a daughter of the very good line for jumping sire, Eight Thirty. Anytime you have Eight Thirty in a sport horse mare you've got a GOOD thing. Both Eight Thirty and Cornish Prince have numerous descendants who have produced for sport at FEI levels.
              6) Buffalo Lark's dam goes back to Chance Play, a son of Display. This is the Fair Play line which is very, very well proved in sport. Bold Ruler's dam also goes back to Display through Discovery. AFR also has Chance Play and this is the damsire line of Touch of Class.
              7) Far back but important is that Star de Naskra's damline goes to Tudor Minstrel, and that is a comparatively reliable line for movement and dressage. That may be why My Sedona is able to compete at advanced in eventing. Star de Naskra sire's dam comes from Le Haar, and that is a very well proved line for jumping. It's practically golden.
              8) Gunner's Runner's dam is by Ardan, and that is also excellent. Among other sterling performers in sport who have Ardan, Idle Dice had him as grandsire on top.
              9) Rose Court is a daughter of Court Martial, and that is royal blood for sport TBs. The number of his descendants who have competed in FEI level sport over the years is almost uncountable. Trust me that you are very lucky to have a mare with him so relatively close.
              10) Rose Court is a granddaughter of Bull Lea through her dam, Rosewood; and Bull Lea is also one of the greats. He's probably one of, if not THE, most successful lines for jumping that was ever bred in the US. His dam is the great mare Rose Leaves and she is dam or granddam to three of the best sport TB sire lines in our history--Espino, Cormac, and Bull Lea.
              11) Rosewood's damsire was Blenheim and no more needs to be said. Her dam is a daughter of Colin, and that has historically been a good line for jumping, especially when crossed with Blenheim.

              So the whole top side is just about as good as it gets; and the actual sire has produced at least one exceptional sport horse.

              Bottom: Northern Dancer. He's everywhere. Some are very good and some are not. I'd rate him as a neutral tending toward positive. The rest of the bottom is more than good; it's excellent.
              1) Twill. She isn't in the FEI database that I use, but her dam Quill is. With 4 different produce who have had FEI level descendants. 4 different ones from one mare is VERY, VERY unusual. Her sire Swaps is also well proved and from parents who have been proved with other get. Swaps has an EXCELLENT sport pedigree and brings you a touch of Son-in-Law which is promising for movement and his sireline is Hyperion, which is also good for movement. He's in the pedigrees of numerous FEI level competitors. He's always good to find.
              2) Tom Rolfe. Very well proved line in American sport from a sire and dam who are also well proved through other get as well.
              3) Scatter Plan is Quadrangle on top, and he's also proved. He's the sire of a mare who ran Badminton twice in the 60's and was in the top ten both times. He's got other get with sport horse descendants. On the bottom she goes to a mare who is Nasrullah on top (can't do better) and Uvira. Uvira is out of a Son-In-Law mare. Her sire is Umidwar, who is a foundation sire in SF and KWPN and several other WB registries.

                I just love it when Viney goes off like that. Now if we can just group source a scopy Arab for the OP and after that.... maybe Emilion for the second foal for me.

                  Another note on the bottom: Staff Writer sired the brilliant Timely Writer, favored for the Ky. Derby from which he was scratched due to colic. Euthanized after breaking a leg in the Gold Cup, he was, for many, the Ruffian, Barbaro... of his generation.

                  I also love Northern Dancers. This mare reminds me of another whose jump and agility were unforgettable. That chestnut mare with chrome was by Theatrical, also a Northern Dancer line horse.

                    Northern Dancer is much more prevalent in the TB gene pool through his sons. His daughters don't seem to have had nearly the impact of his sons. This mare is out of a Northern Dancer mare which is not very common. And he must have nearly as many daughters as sons. For instance in the FEI database that I use, he is listed with 39 stallion sons who have got sport horse descendants, but only with 10 daughters. Of those 10 daughters, though, some are excellent--Fanfreluche and Aladancer are two of the ten.

                      My guy's sire is Valiant Lark, a son of Buffalo Lark - Moose (in my profile photo) is a super jumper, above average mover, and sound with solid bone.

                      He's also, in the words of one of my instructors, "a very strange horse," but you take the bad with the good.

                        Dang! Sounds like we lucked out with a super awesome find! =D And yes, please please help me find the perfect Arabian or Anglo sire to cross her on! I'm wanting to breed for eventing or jumping. I'd prefer to cross her on an Anglo to ensure a little more size than from the ArabianxTb cross, but there are not many Anglo stallions available (that I know of). I think I seriously only know of 2... =/ Thank you so much Viney for chiming in! I was waiting for you to see this thread! XD I'm not a chestnut fan, but man I tend to know a good horse when I see one so this mare was NOT one that was going to get passed up. Either my friend or I was going to get her, no matter what! =)

                          You might see if Virginia Tech has any Baladin d'Oc semen left. He was a French Anglo that they stood. He's dead now, but I think he only died last year.

                            Would just like to say thank you to everyone for chiming in on this mare and for my friend Melanie for posting her pedigree for me since I didn't know about this forum. I'm super excited about this mare

                              Thank you, Viney, I'll definitely try to get in touch with them and see if they have something left. Everyone else feel free to chime in with other suggestions just in case they don't! =)
