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!

  • Build your perfect TB sportshorse

    This thread may fall flat since there are already 2 threats regarding TBs, but there's been a LOT of info posted about TB pedigrees so I thought it might be fun to do hypothetical crosses.

    The cross with the Gem Twist clone is a gimme.

    I'll play. This filly is a yearling, owned by a good friend of mine, so she's real. Stallions would be very interesting for her but imagine Gem Twist clone crossed on her.

        I can tell you I have played with 3 coco kids. This one I posted whom I think is quite special as well as her pasture mate http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/high+grove3 .
        I also have one who was the 3rd pasture mate but mine is not full TB though she's 70% blood. http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/hialeah7

        They are quite neat I really like Coconut Grove as a sire. He totally stamped the 3 of them.

              To build my perfect tb sporthorse I need to own about 10 more mares so I can experiment.......except the barn is full right now....and I kept forgetting to buy lottery tickets!

              Still, I am up to my bad ways looking at canter mares and came across this girl In West Virginia with Catch on Dream (Bonne Nuit line) in the mare line....I dont know about the rest although I think she has some turf horses also on the bottom (turf sometimes equal sporthorse?). Maybe she is not a head turner but her pedigree is interesting.

                I would love to see what the Triple Twist stallion can do.

                Coconut Grove is a lovely stallion. I'd love to have one his babies or one of his daughters too.

                  Specifically for the hunters, I would love to cross this mare http://www.pedigreequery.com/miss+kilkee with this stallion http://www.pedigreequery.com/canadian+kid, not because of bloodlines but because I love what the mare has produced bred to this stallion http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/pikadero and I love my Kid baby out of this mare http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/lil+loose. Problem is... not enough years (or $'s for that matter).

                    Someone want to find a match for this mare with Buckpasser and Prince John up close? Although I might consider another very well bred TB if I really, really liked him.

                    I bred her to this lovely stallion this year : http://www.pedigreequery.com/real+partner

                    Was going to go WB next year, but if I could find the right guy in the Northeast again...

                      Just an FYI - Yak's dad Mandarin crossed absofreakingbeautifully with this mare:

                      http://www.pedigreequery.com/cgi-bin/new/check2.cgi

                      One of the resultant foals is glenhill's Roz. Most were fancy Hunters and one was a 4'6" Jumper -- all were line babies.

                      My filly Validate, is out of a Buckpasser mare...

                      PM me if you want pictures - I will have to dig.

                        I'll just take the yearling gelding that has already been bred by (for sale this year at) Virginia Tech last year.

                        Castle Cove x My Ballet Class x Bit of Class out of Bally's Image by Winged T out of Bally Cor.

                        That pedigree screams sport horse.

                        I'm assuming they used Castle Cove frozen, since he's dead.

                          Castle Cove is most assuredly NOT dead. A friend of mine had inquired about breeding to him a couple months ago and he was fine and ready to go. You are probably thinking of his sire, Castle Magic, one of the best hunter sires ever.

                            P.S. There's a full brother to My Ballet Class at stud in VA, named Fun And Fancy Free, he's young yet but is looking to be a good one.

                                  The only reason that guy is at stud is his color and Bit of Class on top. He'd be an okay gelding, though, or a stud for QHs.

                                    If someone wanted to use a Bit of Class son, who would be the best choice? The Fun and Fancy Free horse looks to have a dam that was a good sporthorse herself.

                                      I have plans to breed my stallion (Navy Bird) back to my mare (Young Man's Fancy). I have a 2 year old from this match and he is everything I hoped for - lovely conformation, straight and correct, a big boy already over 16 hands and well built, fabulous temperament, good mind and learns quickly, good feet, nice mover and as an added bonus he is flashy as heck with tons of chrome and a flaxen mane and tail! I want to keep this boy and make him my own hunter. I couldn't breed Fancy back in 2008 as I had a 3 year old to sell, but he is now sold and in a good home so I can breed another one.

                                        Here's the pedigree of the filly that Twistoffate just had by Triple Twist.

                                        It'll be very interesting to see how the baby turns out from a linebred Roberto mare. To me, this pedigree also screams sporthorse.
