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.

  • Catoki

    I've scoured the web. Has anybody ever seen a conformation photo of Catoki? Short of a conformation photo, has anybody seen in him in person and could describe him a bit? Most curious about length of back, strength of loin and angulation of hind leg. Or, those with kids... how did he produce in these specific areas? TIA!

      Not sure if you've seen this one, but if you go to his site - http://www.ludger-beerbaum.de/beerbaum/index.php?id=71 - and click on Bilder, there is one of him standing. There's way more pictures of him on the German language version of the site.

      I'm super interested in what people think about Catoki as I love his jump and would like to know what type of mare they would put to him.

        Thanks! Pesky English... that's how I missed it :-). Europa, I don't think that's Catoki as that horse has 4 socks, Catoki only has 3.

            Could you send me one too.

            I have been researching on him for the past few months and so far didn't find anything that would make me hesitated to use him In fact I have reserved the last dose of Judy Yancey and want to buy more.

            I am very interested with this stallion and I don't understand why he has not been used more. Pro rata he seems to produce more offspring jumping in the 1.50- 1.60m than a lot of great stallions. His stud fee is reasonable and his fertility is high. However he doesn't have that much offspring on the ground looking at Horse Telex. He is known to have a very high fertility so this is certainely not the issue.

            His owner suggest to use a bigger mare for him otherwise he gives uniform good looking individual with a beautiful head, nice topline and a well attached and oriented neck. His offspriing seems to move uphill with nice gaits and be talented for jumping.

            Has anybody heard bad things about him or had bad experience with his offspring?

              I have bred 3 Catoki's that are full siblings. Two of them are very much like Catoki in size, conformation etc. The 3 yr old filly is more like his dam. This 3 yr old filly is very tall probably 17 hands now. I can't say enough good things regarding Catoki. All of the offspring that I have bred move very good and are intelegant, impressive, well conformed and look very good in the jump shoot so far. I bred 3 because I really liked what I saw him produce. The dam is EM Cela by Contender and is in the AHS Jumper Breeding Program. Here is a video of the 2012 colt at his AHS Inspection. At the end of the video the comments from the judge are included. http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=IozkC...%3DIozkCYCTypY

              In the photo they are all by Catoki out of EM Cela. On the left, dark bay Carnival 3 yr old filly, Candid bay 2012 colt, Cobrah bay 4 yr old mare behind and EM Cela dark bay dam of the other 3. I agree that Catoki's semen is of very good quality. If you have any other questions feel free to ask. 👯

                Please PM me too. I just bought 3 doses of his semen from Bluemoon, and am looking forward to my own Catoki someday soon.
                I suspect many of his get do not make it into Horsetelex, as its not a primarily german site. He seems to have quite a few stallion sons.

                  His oldest offspring is born 2002.
                  Out of 185 registered as competition horses in germany, 18 were successful in class S - the highest. This rate of about 10% is quite high comparable.
                  He has 23 licensed sons.

                    How is his temperment? Does anyone think he could produce a good hunter type movement?

                    Was thinking of him maybe for my Escudo II mare.

                        Thanks for the videos and pictures! There are definitely some lovely babies out there by Catoki. For those looking for the semen I just heard back from Jens @ Global Equine Sires that he can get it for us for this breeding season for $800/dose. YEAH! One more mare decision done :-).

                          I know that horse telex is not 100% reliable and not all offspring are there but still is very good compared to other pedigree data. Catoki on comparable is really outstanding. A few weeks ago I did a little 'study' and was very surprised with the result. I just can find my work sheet but it was something like twice as much better result than a great stallion like Darco.

                          What I did is to count all the offspring of Darco that were born in 2004 or before and see how many did the 1.50 / 1.60 class and did the same with Catoki. Catoki was the winner by far. I think Darco was about 15 To 17% and Catoki over 36%. As you can see on Telex he has a lot of offspring born after 2005 but if he is as good how come we don't hear from him that much and 185 offspring for a stallion of his age is not much to me.

                          I am waiting to hear something bad about him or to understand how come he is not that popular. Of course Darco had many offspring who where not only jumping at this level but had high profile and were winning big classes but maybe if Catoki had as much offspring there would be some that would also made the headline.

                            Our mare is in foal to Catoki and his frozen semen quality was excellent. Our advisors in Germany are thrilled that we used him. They feel he is not as popular as he should be as (a) he has a busy competition schedule which makes access to fresh semen trickier and (b) while his frozen is excellent, they prefer to use fresh whenever possible. He does not have many offspring as noted in this thread which makes it trickier in terms of what type of mare is best for him and the disposition of his offspring. It is also not yet clear what sort of damsire he will be which may be a consideration for breeders.

                            There are probably some other possibilities but only conjecture.

                            We are thrilled with the pregnancy and look forward to hearing more about other's foals and youngsters.

                                    We have a 2013 Catoki foal due out of our Julia du Brio ( Diamant Rouge x Kapoc) that had been imported and successfully competed by Peter Leone and one of his students.This should be quite the upper level prospect for an amateur or the pro and quite sizeable given that Julia is a good 17.3 and the older fashioned type mare.

We successfully were able to receive duplicate SF papers on Julia after considerable effort and the foal will be registered KWPN and taken to the keuring this year. We are really looking forward to seeing this baby, having been bowled over by Julia's 2012 Contendro I colt C. Holyoke S that our trainer John Brown snapped up as a stallion prospect and upper level jumper for himself. That colt has been registered with SF.
                                      With all due respect, why do you feel it necessary to turn a thread about a stallion into a thread about your mare, what she's done, and who has her offspring? It's really getting old.
