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!

      Well at least I can assume he is not too popular from lack of any responses at all.

        I saw that someone on FB used the semen and got a pregnancy, but her mare aborted recently. Other than that, I have no idea. He looks very nice.

          I think Crosiadore Farms has used him. fwiw I like him a lot, he has such good conformation behind and looks really talented.

              Topkat used him; she had one mare abort but I think still has a mare in foal to him. She said the semen was good.

                MMT used him as well, but in Europe, so not with Frozen but it was an ET. I have seen photos and video of her colt and he is a mover for sure (although MMT's mare is really nice too).

                  I had planned on breeding to Dante Weltino, but the 2012 breeding year was not a good one and decided to try early in 2013. First saw Dante Weltino at his Korung and he was lovely. Saw him again under saddle this summer and while the judges thought he was irregular in the trot (which he was a tiny bit) I saw a gorgeous, obedient stallion that had been maybe bred too much. Dante Weltino has been heavily used in Oldenburg and many breeders have bred back. But when I really fell for him is when I saw Riwera de Hus, full sister to Dante Weltino's dam, go under saddle (only video) I fell is love and decided this dam line was something special.

                    Thanks for the replies. OMG Nancy that mare is awesome. What a beautiful picture she presents. I would certainly fill my barn with ones just like her.

                      I did have my very best producing mare in foal and she did abort at 5+ months. I've see him in his stall and only videos of him under saddle. He has an excellent dam line which convinced me to use him. I have one mare still in foal to him, glad I bred two. His semen is excellent, one cyle with one dose for each mare. I don't know what I'll do with the mare that has now slipped two foals in the past 5 years, maybe LFG with cooled semen this year. Her Dante Weltino should have been a really good one

                        I am so sorry for your loss and glad that you have one still on the way. I had my Contender mare slip her Quite Easy foal at about 8 months and I was devastated. Please post pictures when your foal arrives.

                              Thanks Melissa but unfortunately it won't play on my iPAD. I am in the hospital right now so my iPAD is my only resource. How did he do? I really like him.

                                You really have to see the stallion live to understand just how special he is. He has perfect character.

                                From a conformation standpoint he has more of a square frame. I was told he passes on this. The legs have just the right amount of bone to be able to hold up to advanced dressage work.

                                  We have three Dante Weltinos at our farm. I personally own one 2014 filly who I bought in utero along with her Licotus/Quo Vadis/Furioso II dam from Nancy (Crosiadore Farms). She is just everything I could want, and I ended up keeping her for myself, in spite of plans to sell! She's a beautiful improvement on her already lovely dam, with three excellent gaits, including a particularly spectacular canter. We have another 2014 colt from a Lord Liberty G/Donnerhall/Pik Bube mare, and a three year old filly who I just started under saddle. I cannot say enough nice things about them. They are all bold, friendly, extremely people-oriented, and very smart and easy to work with. Just truly special characters. I would breed him to a mare with a strong topline and good neck. He added some length of frame to our kids, along with very good bone. He does seem to cross best with mares that have a decent bit of blood.

                                  The three year old filly from a Rohdiamant/De Niro dam, who I have just started riding, is going to be a super sporthorse. She has a really good walk and an excellent canter. She is a bit slow to mature, and building her topline will take some time, as right now her quick and strong hind end kind of overpowers her front. However, she should progress just as quickly as she physically matures and gets stronger, because she tries so hard, is so responsive, and has such a good natural connection with the bridle. She is very supple and has given me a super soft back and good place to sit right from the first time I sat on her. At only a dozen rides or so she moves off seat and leg very well; I expect she will be laterally gifted. She does require, at least at this very early point in her life, someone who will keep her engaged and challenged- if her rider/handler is going to take the backseat, she is perfectly happy to have a go at driving the bus herself.

                                  All in all, I am a huge Dante Weltino fan, and will very probably end up breeding my mare back to him at some point in the future because that foal was so very nice. As a young horse trainer, you could give me them to break and ride all day long.

                                    I have had 3 Dante Weltino foals. I got a colt out of my French Kiss - De Niro mare in 2014 and a full sibling filly in 2015. I had a 2015 colt out of my Donnerhall - Plaisir d'Amour mare 2 days ago.

                                    All are lovely, but still to young to be in serious training. The 2014 colt is VERY tall, over 15 hands as a yearling. Very nice mover. Great mind. The full sibling filly is very refined and is not quite as tall as her brother was a birth.

                                    The colt out of the Donnerhall mare is tall as well, definitely taller than the filly out of the French Kiss mare, but perhaps not quite as tall as his older 1/2 brother. All are very people oriented and friendly. All are black with some white markings.
