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!

  • What obvious traits did the dam pass along to some of the wb stallions?

    We all know how important the dam is -- sooo - I was wondering what some of the great wb stallions' dams influence was that is maybe still evident in their produce down the line today? We all know the sire lines of these stallions, but I don't recall as much about their dams being discussed on this board --

    Such as:
    Sandro Hit
    Cor de la Bryere

    Fill in where you wish -- just thougth I'd throw out a few to get it started for a variety of registries.

    Hmmmm! Very interesting -- almost 100 views and no opinions or feedback on the dams that produced these famous stallions. I would have thought with all the lauding of the mares someone might have a comment and discussion. So these guys dams have not been looked at or considered by breeders for their contribution? Baffling!

      Maybe change the title? I am baffled as well that not one of our resident experts can say anything about these stallions' dams!

      I am no expert.

        I would wager that very few people on this forum have ever seen the dams of these stallions, so hard to say what traits they possessed that were passed on to their sons. Perhaps Kareen or Alexandra or Fannie Mae have seen a few and can provide their insights. Or the Holsteiner gurus like Tim or Reece, who travel to Germany fairly regularly and study damlines a lot.

ID:	9135481 Here is a photo that I found of Anka - Weltmeyer's dam. She is apparently 20 in this image.
          She is by Absatz and there are boatloads of articles about him as well and his influence on the Hanoverians. Click image for larger version

          I know its not exactly what you asked for...but it is very, very difficult to get damline info IMO. There was/is a VHS video about Weltmeyer and there is a significant amount of discussion with his breeder and the choices of stallions for Anka and then her daughter(s).

          My mom's close friend was in the same stable as Donnerwetter in Germany before he sold to Suzanne Erikson (sp?) and had some insights into possible traits (riding, behavior, personality quirks) that might come down to his descendants...but again, not the damline info you are seeking.

          ETA: I don't have my copy of the new Warmblood Breeding book by Christoph Hector handy (loaned it to a friend and am terrified I'll never see it again!!) but there may be more info about the mares in there...I can't remember as it's been about a year since I browsed through it.

            Thanks, Tasker -- I appreciate your response. I know how valuable our mares are and their influence. I just wondered if the dams of these famous guys had ever been researched or credited for what they brought to the line. Seemed like an interesting discussion or something for research since these stallions still offer alot of influence.

              Flexible's dam Flex has to be one if the outstanding mares of Ireland. 3 foals and 3 international competitors. http://www.sporthorse-data.com/d?0=d...session=OuDtBZ
              Kildalton Countess produced 5 top stallions in Ireland to 2 different stallions http://www.sporthorse-data.com/d?i=728869
              Her dam Enniskeane Countess produced 2 top stallions in addition to producing one of the great dams of Ireland.

                Jazz's damline is an interesting one as there are three shared sires with Moorlands Totilas, the Holstein Blood of Nimmerdor through Farn and Amor and the TB of Pericles.

                  Farn's dam Dorette

                  Kind of cheating here as I love the topic but it is hard to find dam info especially with pictures so as I find them on Sport Horse data base I am posting them...they will like be older dams and NOT modern type though but I like them best anyway.

                              I'm just learning about bloodlines and appreciate the information on these mares. Looking at my filly's pedigree, I notice mares with Vb. Pr. St., St. Pr., and Elite. I don't know what these predicates (if this is what they are called) indicate. I'm just curious if they reflect foal quality and/or performance.
