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!

  • Suggestions for breeding

    This mare is getting bred this spring to... somebody. Not sure who yet, have a few in mind. This will hopefully be a baby for me to send off to be made up as an aa hunter or low jumper for me. I'm a not exactly a novice horse person, but I'm looking for a great minded sire known for throwing babies who are easy to work with. Mare already has a great brain and unbeatable work ethic. Her gaits are extremely rideable but despite her size she's slightly short strided on course.
    I'm open to suggestions, esp any sires that will add to scope, stride, but not necessarily size. I'm looking for a mid-sized horse out of this match, I'm short.

    She's 16.1 and large bodied, has already foaled once though I'm not sure of details. No papers, reportedly Dutch x TB.

    So I think I have my list somewhat narrowed. They are all different types of stallions, and wanted opinions on what you guys know of these sires.

    Noble Houston has been on my list since I first started looking. He's a bit aged and I'm not sure what his insem success rates have been. He's a type I really like, and it's generally agreed that his foals are tractable and great movers.

    I really love the overall look of Crin Rouge, though he is huge and I'm not wanting a monster baby. His canter is astounding. Not a lot of foals on the ground that I've found, but all I've seen are fancy. Again, not sure about his catch rate, also aged.

    Ran across Cobra One, who I like quite well but need to do more research on him.

    Avalon's Edward Scissorhands is so flippin cute I want to just go squeeze him. But he's unproven, so I have no clue what he passes on. I have really admired the sire line for awhile. And from what I can gather the SO is extremely knowledgeable about repro.

    So these guys are all pretty different (although I'm starting to see a pattern in my color preferences, haha). I have a few others in mind as well. I don't have the advantage of knowing anything about this mare's bloodlines or what her prior foal was like, or who it was by. Based solely on conformation and her info from above, what do you all think? Good matches? Any obvious issues you see? I'm not easily offended, so fire away. Any input is greatly appreciated.

      wish I knew enough to give you some advice :-), but I did find this thread re Noble Houston--

      http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/sh...-Noble-Houston

      Edward Scissorhands is gorgeous! I am anxiously awaiting an April 2013 foal by him, out of a TB mare. mare is black too, so of course I''m dreaming of a big, black, four white socks, blingy baby

      Kathy @ Avalon Equine was a dream to work with! she completely held my hand and calmed my nerves the whole way thru, even with questions not concerning Edward or that particular breeding, and I would highly recommend her!

        Take a look at Richard.
        http://www.theequineathlete.net/

        He's producing some nice looking hunter type foals that also seem scopey enough for the jumpers. Had one foal crop in Europe that is old enough to be out competing and his first US born foals should be starting to enter the show ring.

          We are beyond thrilled with our colt by Amazing. While Amazing's foals are not yet old enought to be proven under saddle in the ring, he is consistantly stamping his foals. He has the most laid back personality and his willingness to not only learn but please is "Amazing"! Our colt sold to a top professional to be her personal horse. We bred back in hopes for a repeat performance but in "filly form". Ahna was fantastic to work with, even when we moved and our new vet was less than experienced with breeding. I have also found her to be very honest at what her boy will and wont bring to the table.

          We have also had 4 Escapade foals to date. All of them were a pleasure from day one and all sold to Ammy owners who are bringing along their first young horse. Escapade has several offspring that have hit the ring winning and most under the training and riding of their owners. That says a lot to me.

          This year we will be using several new boys in our program.
          We are very excited about breeding our Quinar mare to Ralando. This will be his first year at stud. He was a successful hunter and jumper competiton and is a direct son of legendary sire, Ramiro Z.

            I wouldn't breed a mare that isn't registered with unknown parentage. It is wreckless and cost prohibitive. You are not likely to get what you want, and the foal can't be registered. You have already stated that the mare is unathletic, this is not wise. Sorry for being so direct, but it needs to be said.

              This breeder is breeding to produce a foal for herself, not to sell. She may not care about papers, but if she does, GOV will look at an unpapered mare, and possibly BWP and RPSI. I would recommend taking a look at Cunningham. He is a little taller than you might like, but he is throwing beautiful offspring with good movement and easy-going temperaments. Here is a link to the Cunningham foal that I had, out of a Linaro mare.
