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.

    Hello again! This is a follow up thread from the pedigree breakdown thread I posted a few days ago of a Thoroughbred mare I'll be breeding for myself. (thread here --> http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/sh...-mare-pedigree) Just wanting to get everyone's expert opinion on stallions to possibly cross her with. I am wanting to breed for an Anglo-Arabian, so the stallion can be either Anglo-Arabian himself or Arabian. I've already been suggested Baladin d'Oc, and I've already sent an email to Virginia Tech about him, as well as, I already have Signal Bey on my list too.

    The mare is a 16.1 or .2 chestnut sabino. I'm hoping to breed this foal for eventing and foxhunting. I would also like to avoid breeding her to another chestnut, but I know that color should be the last thing I should worry about, so if the perfect stallion is chestnut, then I just live with chestnut. Suggest away!

    If you are thinking of going with an Arabian, I've been an admirer of Faerie Court Farm's Oberon's Vanity for a while. Great type, excellent mind and he can move and jump. I think he is frozen only, but you would have to check with Dawn about that. Dawn could also give you advice on how he would match up with your mare - and she would be honest if he wasn't a good match for her.

      What are you breeding for?

      Not many all AA stallions around..

      Windfall, Ironman and Quick Star all have AA in their pedigree.. fairly close..

      There is a stallion called Knock Wood that is by Olisco (has AA on top) and then is out of a Good Twist xx mare (Cool Twist who is the full sister to Gem Twist) that would be a cool combo with this mare..

        I mentioned above that I'm wanting to event with this foal and I know it'd be easier to go with one of the million warmblood type stallions out there, but I really want an Anglo, so the stallion has to be either Arabian or Anglo-Arabian.

        You're definitely right, EquineLVR, there are pretty much slim to none Anglo-Arabian stallions out there.. very frustrating! =/ I'm guessing that AHA people just do the straight Arabian - TB cross pretty much every time instead of keeping around Anglo stallions to cross on.

          You should check out WL Intruder, he's an Arabian stallion out in Nor Cal. Good sized and producing some very nice crosses with lots of jump. He himself is a multi titled National Champion Hunter & Jumper for Arabians. He's a very nice boy and he's bay.

          Dawn's stallion is very nice too.

          I know chestnut is not high on your list, but if you want BRAVE, ENDURANCE, HEART & GALLOP, check out Magic Aulrab. He's an endurance stallion in Nevada that is producing some seriously nice sport babies. I have a PB coming 2 yr. old with everything I mentioned above. LOVE him.

            It might sound like a left-field suggestion, but if you're interested in the AA/TB type, please take a look at Super Star (scroll down, video here), an Akhal-Teke stallion who stands in Virginia. His owner sometimes posts here.

            Super Star crosses well with TB mares and produces tough, intelligent, athletic horses. My own Super Star mare is now 7; she has a huge jump, beautiful movement, can go all day, goes out alone or in groups, and is very fun to ride. She'll be moving up to Prelim soon and has the talent and scope for much higher.

            IMO, Super Star is one of the best stallions for eventers in the US. It is, however, hard to get people to see past the words 'Akhal-Teke'. But I like my horses light and fast, and Super Star gave me exactly what I wanted.

            (I realize you're looking for an Arab or AA but the AT is a similar type, and the AT/TB cross produces a horse that has the same characteristics as the AA.)

              Sorry missed the part about Eventing.. personally I would not pigeonhole myself to AA only.. you may not get what you want..breeding is such a crapshoot anyway.

              Windfall brings the AA blood and XX blood. as well as he is a proven producer..just my opinion.

                If you do a search on this forum, there was a vet in Western Canada who had some Sarastro frozen semen. Sarastro is a French Anglo who was the best eventing sire in France before he died. You could PM the original poster and get the name of the vet.

                  Thanks everyone and thank you Viney! You've been especially helpful. =) I found the old thread and emailed the poster who said their vet had semen, hopefully they still do... 2 years have gone by since then.

                    I know you are set on an AA or an Arab.. but one other to look at is Edelweiss De Bonce..

                    His whole dam line is AA.. with SF on top.. just another option since the AA's are so hard to find..

                    Good luck with your search!

                      I know ZERO about him or his bloodlines - what I like is his conformation and his bone.. he has 8.5in bone.. he just looks solid and with a lovely build.

                          If you are willing to go the frozen route, have a look at Bonaparte N. He doesn't have a lot of foals on the ground yet due to a busy competition career, but he is a successful 1.60 international showjumper and his sire was a 3* eventer. Plus, because he is approved with so many registries, there might be more registration options for your foal (if you were to consider having her inspected).
                          http://www.superiorequinesires.com/s...onaparte.shtml

                          Have you considered a full Shagya Arab? They tend to be more sport oriented than the Egyption or Polish lines. I don't think there are many in the U.S., but Sterling Silver is on the West Coast.

                          You might also consider a Hungarian Warmblood with a good dose of Shagya. I've seen some REALLY nice young horses by HS Sir Bungee and his sire Shandor (Shagya).

                            Nice horse! Very elastic, that said... I tried breeding to him and got nothing. I hear he is live cover only at this point.

                                What about Persiflage? He's an Anglo Arab and an Advanced Eventer. He has the same dam line as the amazing Tamarillo who was a world class 4**** eventer and he is by Primitive Rising, one of the best TB sires of eventers ever. You really can't get a better pedigree for eventing than that! I believe his frozen is available for import to the US.

                                  Oh dear, Stolensilver, now you've done it! Haha! I'm nervous to contact these people and ask how much it would cost me to import his semen! But that's the type of Anglo I am shooting for! I know I probably won't get one like the European style without breeding to a stallion of that type right away, or maybe not even for a few generations, but I so want to try!!

                                  Tradewind, I love him! I'll have to research and figure out how much his semen costs. This mare has been bred LC, fresh, and frozen, so crosses fingers that frozen will work again!

                                  Anyone have an idea on the costs of breeding with frozen (outside of purchasing and shipping the "goods" to me)?

                                    Here are a couple options. I've seen Oration many times not a French Anglo, although many Arabian purests would tell you he is, but he's a French Arabian. I know his stud fee is ridiculous, but that may just be for Arabian mares. Many Arabian stallions have a different fee for non Arabians.

                                      Importing semen on your own is very simple. The USDA has all the info you need.

                                      Also, stud fees tend to be lower in the UK than in the US. You will, however, pay more for shipping.

                                      If you're using frozen, the key is having a good vet who is experienced and successful with frozen.

                                        themarchcat I'd strongly recommend that you ring them. Stud fees in the UK are a fraction of the prices charged in the US. I can't see a fee on the website but I'd expect Persiflage to be around £500 for fresh/chilled. Despite his bloodlines he's not used much, possibly because he isn't heavily marketed which is a shame. I think they have frozen that can be exported but I'm not sure.

                                        There's no harm in asking.
