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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums' policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

    "Lighter-type" Voltaire sons/grandsons standing at stud?

    I know about Vallado (yummy!) at Silver Creek, but can anyone name some others?
    Expecting 2020 foals by Cornet Obolensky, Glasgow van't Merelsnest, Kannan, Untouchable 27, Clintord, Nixon van't Meulenhof, Zapatero and Label d'Amour!

    I haven't seen this one in person, but saw him on their website the other day:
    "Where knowledge ends violence begins." B. Ljundquist


      I have one, he is only 6 months old though


        I love Mezcalero, but not sure he is a lighter type. But a nice type, non-the-less.

        We have a coming 2 yo by Voltaire that stallion owners, stallion developers and inspectors, who have seen, have asked us to wait before we decide to geld. He is KWPN, out of a lovely Canadian TB mare. His name is Corsaire D.

        I recently saw a really typey beautiful young one based out of Europe, but his name escapes me right now. Let me think about it and maybe it will come to me.
        Robin Stewart


          Concorde B is a lovely, typey, Voltaire grandson.


            Wamberto is a Voltaire grandson with Lucky Boy also in the damline. I would not say he is a very light type, but nicely balanced.

              Winston - he comes from the same lines as Vallado - I almost imported him myself -lovely boy. I believe he is now approved BWP. He also has an approved full brother named Valentino.

              Couple others are Uccello and Toronto.

                Thanks! I will track down some more info. on these guys. I love Vallado's "type", just looking to see what all else is out there.

                Mezcalero-Love him, have a mare in foal to him for 2009, actually. But for the particular mare I'm thinking of, he is just too heavy.

                I wasn't familiar with Concorde B, either, but will look into that.

                Stallions don't have to be standing here in the U.S., I'm trying to get a comprehensive list...

                    All at Statestud Celle and I love Valentino and Ucello, both have very nice loos movement aswell as jump. Picture in celle stallion book of one of them is really bad though. I may even have footage of Valentino.

                      Winston is a gelding.


                        Oliver - now based in the UK but they do export semen. Lovely horse and fantastic temperament. Interestingly he just produced the champion dressage foal at one of the UK KWPN keurings this summer



                          I am completely smitten with my Vallado foal, and plan to repeat the cross hoping for a filly in the future.

                          Wilton is another Now or Never son available Frozen.

                          Vulkano is one that has caught my eye before, He appears to be showing in Europe currently too. He is Voltaire- Pit I- Grannus

                          Also there is Solitar, (Voltaire - Libero H- Ulster) who is thought of as a good all arounder, and I've always liked Larino by Concorde.

                            Isn't there a Cicera's Icewater (ex Voltaire dam) stallion in Virginia somewhere? Don't know where he's approved but if memory serves otherwise I believe he was quite modern in type?


                              Idocus is a Voltaire grand son and he is not very heavy. He produces nice types.

                                Thanks guys; I have quite a list now to look into. This is just for planning pretty far into the future, but I do love stallion shopping. I'm looking to produce upper level jumpers, so that is of course a factor in my decision. I've read from several sources that crossing Voltaire on some of the Pilot lines seems to be a good nick. However, I would think that temperament would become a possible huge issue?

                                  Vulkano under Markus Ehning - Hearing a lot of goo things.
                                  And sorry - did not mean all at Celle in my earlier post, but Ucello and Valentino are.

                                    I don't know if he'll be standing next year, but Amazing is Balou/Voltaire. His owner posts here.


                                      I am a huge fan of Tricolore (Voltaire x Samber) standing in Canada. I think he's probably one of the lesser-known and highly under-used Voltaire sons.


                                      My mare had an absolutely gorgeous colt by him that was everything I was hoping for out of the cross- lovely topline, excellent hindquarter with *tons* of push from behind, the "sitting" ability for dressage but with an incredible jump on him as well.

                                      I sold this colt before he was weaned and had offers on him after that. The current owner has had multiple people comment that the horse would be worth huge bucks in the hunter ring, but alas, she's a dressage rider!

                                      Edited to add: one of the subsequent offers was from an established Grand Prix dressage trainer, so the colt was definitely a hit for multiple-disciplines (which was one of my goals for the cross).

                                        Thanks Spacely! Amazing may do a couple of breedings in 2009-I plan to take him in the spring for collection training. As of now, I am hoping to offer him to the public for 2010 and present him for approvals as well. Website plans are in the works, but in the meantime there is still a great video of him on Silver Creek's site under the sales horses.
