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.

      The Appaloosa Sport Horse Association (ApSHA) registers cross bred Appaloosas. http://www.apsha.org/

      I actually don't agree that these cross breds should not be called Appaloosas. Appaloosas are a color breed. Appaloosas are crossbreds and the "foundation" horses had a lot of different breeds mixed in. What is acceptable according to the ApHC for breeding include TBs, QHs and Arabs...breeds that were not included in the absolute orginal Appaloosa before they were even called Appaloosas. The original Appaloosas were a combination of Spanish Barb arriving in the 16th Century and American mustangs that cross bred at liberty (and intentionally), not QH, TB and Arabs.

      Furthermore, the ApHC considers Appaloosas a spotted breed...it is based on spots and Appaloosa characteristics not "pure" breeding or even type for that matter. If type were really a consideration then they wouldn't be accepting outcrossing with 3 breeds that differ quite a bit in type (QH, TB and Arab). You must have appaloosa blood bred to a crossbred and the resulting foal have characteristics and/or color in order to have a registerable appaloosa. Even unapproved outcrosses (including grade horses) many be hardship registered with the ApHC if the offspring has Appaloosa characteristics and/or a spotted pattern. The colt must be gelded and the filly must be spayed in order to be hardship registered. At least, this is how it used to be. Perhaps they have made some changes in recent years.

        Another vote for JG appaoloosas. I have two fillies by Wap's Millenium, and they both have beauty and brains (but I may be biased ).

          Well,

          I am super excited about my appy/trak cross that is due in March. The dam is my old eventing mare who is all appy and absolutly fabulous at everything she does and the sire is Stiletto who is currently eventing at the 2* level. This foal should be what appy sport horses are all about!

Talk about show records , looks, movement and style. you can't go wrong with any of those mixes. Well worth the look & time.

              Stiletto is a nice stallion. I met him last year at the ATA Annual Convention in TX. He tied for first place with Prelude by Mozart over a huge fence in the jumper stake. Can't remember how tall it was but you can see it here. It was very impressive. http://americantrakehner.com/Convent...on%20home.html You should have an athletic baby. Is your appy mare spotted? If so, I hope Stiletto doesn't throw his grey gene and cover up any spots the foal has.

              I am also expecting an Appy/Trak foal next year in May. The sire is Trakehner stallion Tanzeln. We had a full sibling in 2007 and she is extremely athletic...loves to run and jump ditches, logs, anything she can find. www.altamontsporthorses.com/tallulahbelle.html She didn't have spots but is still a very nice filly so I don't mind taking the risk outcrossing her dam again knowing that I only have a 50% chance of a spotted pattern since the dam apparently carries only one spotted pattern gene (PATN). Maybe I'll be lucky in 2009.

              I really like the Appaloosa/Trakehner cross and am glad that the Trakehner stallion owners and managers I have spoken to about breeding my mares do not mind outcrossing to Appaloosas. We do breed for purebred Trakehners as well.

              ETA: Oops, I think I was looking at the wrong older horse. What is the name of your other Trak x App cross?

                I saw this amazing colt this year. He is (I think) 5/16 HOL blood. He was flipping lovely and I am NOT a spotted horse fan. He can move and he is so all of it!! I think she plans to keep him intact and eventually stand him at stud. I was fascinated with him. Everything was there and he had those spots!!

                  App/Trak Cross

                  Yes, My mare is spotted. Her is a video of her bouncing through a prelim coffin with what is probably her 5th pony club kid that she has taken up the levels http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-rjW4B3-aY

                  I am very excited about this cross. It may end up being for sale as in the year since she was bred I have collected others.... Where would be the best place to advertise such a cross?

                    I am so thrilled to FINALLY be back in the Appy game! I became the proud owner of a super cute little mare last week.
                    I'd be curious to know what you all thought about her pedigree? I know what drew me to her pedigree-wise, but hearing from others what they think is always helpful!! Clarysa

                    My hope is to breed her in a couple years - to an Appaloosa, of course!!

                        Appy/Trak

                        My appy mare had her foal by Stiletto two weeks ago. Thoughts on whether she will go gray or roan??

                        If you scroll down there are other pictures of my Appy/Trak from Rugby Creek

                        http://www.coyotecreekfarm.net/News.html

                        These are both going to be great sport horses. Both of them are brave, bold and friendly. They question now is whihc one do I keep and which one do I sell?

                          The 2009 foal will definitely grey. It may roan too but the grey will take the color out faster than the grey. Very cute baby. Beautiful face. Congratulations!!

                          Your 2008 Trak x Appaloosa boy is very handsome as well. As far as which to keep I guess you will have to see what your filly's personality is and if she will have the conformation to do what you want. Otherwise, do you mind having a gelding or a filly? I will say that if you want to sell one you will have a much easier time selling the colored 2008 foal as a riding horse. The colored WB x App crosses are in more demand and he has cute markings as well.

                          We are still waiting on our Trak x Appaloosa 2009 foal (Tanzeln x Waps Skip N Line) due June 1st but expected to come earlier based on her previous foaling.

                            Now I must say.. Love the markings on " Doo Wap" .. But now explain something here.
                            Is your stallion related to the " Wap A Loosas" that Ginny & Jerry Hood have at the farm in Pa. Because I have noticed that many people are adding the " WAP" to their names and not really having the same blood lines.
                            Is it true to say that there may be other blood lines out there with the same
                            prefix. OR what ? Do explain this ....

                            For I have been doing LOTS of research on the "Wap A Loosa" and reading into the Line Breeding that the Hoods have done. And I must say they have developed a wonderful and fantastic performance record with their horses.

                              Doo Wap

                              Doo Wap is by Wapuzzan from rugbycreeksporthorses.com

                              Wapuzzan is by Wap Spotted and we all know the issue with that stallion and JG Appys......

                              I actually liked Doo Wap based on his movement, conformation, and Trak bloodlines first and his color/ Wap lines second.

                              I think that JG appies are genreally of better quality then the Wap Spotted ones but his lines do trace back to their stallion.....

                                So are you telling me that he has the "WAP" bloodline from the JG waps.???
                                OR,,, did he get the name just because.....
                                I see his sire does not give a breakdown of his breeding and wanted to know the facts on this .

                                  SO Wap Spotted is NOT from Ginny & Jerry.???? He just has the name.
                                  well isn't that a bunch of crap.
                                  how could someone stand a stallion with the same name as a well established farm and not confuse the heck out of people.

                                  I am totally confused now . And for the life of me trying to sort this out is giving me a headache.. Got asprin. Advil.. anything right now . how about a good shot of vodlka... brother here needs a drink...

                                    My understanding is that Wap Spotted was sired by Wap Spot 2 of JG (my memory may be fuzzy on this). However, Wap Spotted was sold in utero and so is not a part of the JG breeding program.

                                    I believe that is what I remember from the JG website.

                                      Gotcha.. see I have known the Wap Line for years. way back from late 70's to early 80's. And just never understood the confusion. I have also been friends with the " Hoods" for years . I have marveled at their breeding program and drewelled at the wapaloosas for years also ... So my interest is with the line breeding and the basic background of it all . very interesting to me to grasp and understand all of this . Thanks.

                                        No Problem-

                                        I think a lot of the confusion happened because Wap Spotted was the first horse registered in the Appalossa Sport Horse Association.....

                                        This led many poeple to believe he was the founding sire of the Wap dynasty of horses when in fact Wap Spot 2 was the founding sire and Wap Spotted was just one of his many children.....

                                          I was just on their site now looking back at the stallions and I see that the oldest one listed is " Wap Spot 2" back from 1972 .
