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.

    Thanks, that is the kind of info I am looking for - i.e., red bay foals coming from two EE parents who are black or a darker bay (not chestnut, nor red bay).

    Can you post some links to photos?

      Sorry for the confusion. The foal pictured with his dam is not the same foal from the black and bay parents. i just wanted to see if he was a red bay. The dam in that pic is a brown bay? The pix attached here is the dam of the horse with the black and bay parents. She is definitely black. I hope this makes sense.

        Thats probably not going to happen because blacks don't have the gene for bay, and most "dark bays" are really browns and also don't have the gene for bay.

        Blacks are aa. "Dark bays" are either Ata or AtAt. "Red Bays" are AA, AAt, or Aa.

            Then I guess what I am looking for is examples of red bay foals when both parents are homozygous dark bay (i.e., not themselves red bay).

            A friend asked me how to get a red bay foal, and I didn't really know. My former mare was a red bay, but she had a dark bay sire and a chestnut dam. And her three foals were all chestnut, even the two by a dark bay stallion.

            L&L tells me the Cleveland Bays sometimes produce red bay foals from dark bay parents, but again, it seems most of the ones I have run into in the warmblood world have a chestnut parent. So I am still wondering about how the genetics of red bay work.

              I love the red bay "blood bay" coloring !!

              I have two red bay youngsters, both out of a red bay dam (Weltmeyer line) and by one black and one brown stallion. The red bay dam is by a chestnut stallion and out of a black dam. The red bay dam produces a mix of chestnut, red bay, dark bay and black offspring. I have another dark bay W-line mare that has produced a mix of chestnut, dark bay and brown offspring (the two chestnuts were by a black stallion). Other than the presence of a chestnut ancestor (which both of these dams have), what other predictors are there for producing red bay offspring?

              RiddleMeThis -- You mention that most dark bays are really browns. How can one properly tell the difference between dark bay and brown without doing a genetic test? I thought that some article I had read a few years ago stated that dark bays had a discernable difference between the dark brown of their body/upper leg vs the black of their lower leg and that browns had little difference between the color of the body/upper leg and their lower leg (almost black with some brown hairs through out coat). Unfortunately I cannot find that article and would like to update my understanding of how to visibly differentiate dark bay from brown from seal brown.

                But not bay either - she's brown

                But "dark bay" is really brown in nearly every case, unless by "dark bay" you mean "bay but not red bay". So, as per what RMT laid out above, you'll never find a bay, of whatever shade, from 2 brown parents, as neither of them have the bay form of Agouti or they'd be bay, since it's dominant over brown

                What do you mean by "homozygous dark bay"? Both homozygous for black (EE) and homozgyous for bay? The trouble is when you find the EEAA horse, you don't know if that's AA or AAt unless they've been tested for brown at Pet DNA Services

                A friend asked me how to get a red bay foal, and I didn't really know. My former mare was a red bay, but she had a dark bay sire and a chestnut dam. And her three foals were all chestnut, even the two by a dark bay stallion.
                Best chance - 2 red bay parents, at least one of whom is EE

                L&L tells me the Cleveland Bays sometimes produce red bay foals from dark bay parents,
                It depends on your definition of "dark bay". Usually that's really brown, and you're not going to get bay from 2 brown parents. But if they really are just a darker bay, or a bay with sooty which can darken them up, then yes, it's entirely possible

                but again, it seems most of the ones I have run into in the warmblood world have a chestnut parent. So I am still wondering about how the genetics of red bay work.
                The shade of bay (or brown, or chestnut) is a separate set of genetics from either Extension or Agouti. Just like you can get a regular chestnut out of 2 liver chestnuts, you can get a variety of bay shades, as well as brown (and a variety of brown shades) from 2 bay parents, or a black and chestnut parent.

                  Often it's very obvious Guaranteed anything labeled "black bay" is really brown for example. Even the lighter ones with very golden muzzles, and around the eyes, and the flanks, are brown.

                  Sometimes they are harder to figure out, especially if you suspect sooty is there, since that can make some bays look brown

                  I thought that some article I had read a few years ago stated that dark bays had a discernable difference between the dark brown of their body/upper leg vs the black of their lower leg and that browns had little difference between the color of the body/upper leg and their lower leg (almost black with some brown hairs through out coat). Unfortunately I cannot find that article and would like to update my understanding of how to visibly differentiate dark bay from brown from seal brown.
                  It entirely depends on the shade of brown. Browns usually have black points, just like bays, but they might not, they might be very dark chocolate (and even then when the legs are dark brown, the mane/tail are usually still black). But a brown can be fairly light in body color and still have all black points, so there would be a pretty clear delineation.

                  It's much more about the tone of the color. Bays, of whatever shade, tend more towards a red undertone, even a bit orange, even those "golden bays". Browns, of whatever shade, tend much more towards golden undertones.

                    I have a very red bay mare in Abba. She can be very dark to very light in her shades of red. Father was red bay and mom is bay but not red bay. Her mom however was chestnut and sire's father was chestnut. Will try and do pics later.

                    Oh yes I did get a red bay from my mare and sire was Padinus who very much was dark bay. I will get pics up of him too. FWIW Padinus was no red factor.

                      My red bay mare has given me a red bay, a chesnut, a bay with pinto markings (or paint markings, whatever) and a very dark foal (who died during birth). All bred to the same stallion who is a dark bay. The painted one was a shocker, the rest are blingy 10 movers. =)

                        Sorry if theres been confusion DownYonder what I suggested was to look at the Cleveland Bay breed because only "Bay" is accepted within the breed.

                        Was trying to show examples of red bay's that don't carry red factor.

                          No....browns are either Ata or AtAt. Bays are never At anything.

                            RMT put "dark bay" in quotes because they are really brown - Ata or AtAt Nearly every 'dark bay" out there is really brown, but most folks just don't know better

                            But also, bays can absolutely be "At anything" - they can be AAt

                                    The reason I put it in quotes is exactly what JB said. And because most times people call them dark bays they are brown. Especially in this conversation. When the OP wants a red bay out of a dark bay shes probably never going to get it because it's brown. IMO there pretty much ISN'T dark bay. It's brown. If its not brown it's just bay.

                                    And while yes saying oh that horse is brown makes sense, when people dont even know that brown is something separate and they ask "I want to get a red bay from two dark bays. Is it possible?" Saying "No two browns can't make a red bay" doesnt make sense and confuses them more because they don't know the genetics of it.

                                    Either way it confuses people, and I prefer the way I explained it. Especially since I said dark bays ARE brown and used the genetics of it.
