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!

  • Jaguar Mail

    Does anyone have a JM foal or riding age horse? Has anyone used him with his frozen -- if so, how was it? If you have a foal or horse by him, what qualities do you see in the foal/horse that you attribute to him? Specifically -- is the foal correct? How is the temperment and how does he/she respond to being handled? What are you seeing in gaits and balance? What do you think of the overall conformation? JM just fascinates me -- I love how much Thoroughbred blood he carries and the specific TB ancestors in his pedigree. I know my mares from my foundation stallion and mare have some wonderful jumping lines and keep thinking about using him -- even though I'm not supposed to be breeding.... If you used him, what kind of mare - breed/type did you use him on? TIA

    This probably isn't very helpful, but on his stallion-page on their website, it has his offspring listed:

    I'm sure you could contact any of those people and they would love to talk to you about their horse - as most people would (;

      Get in touch with baywithchrome. She has a colt at her farm that was a custom foal out of one of her mares. Semen was very good.

        Mary O'Connor has a lovely 2012 colt by Jaguar Mail, now growing up at Robin Stewart's place in S. VA.. He's a good looking boy with a beautiful temperament.

            I sought out Jaguar Mail to breed to our As Di Villagana (Han) / Camille (TB) mare, As Di Ani Z, in order to achieve a unique combination of bloodlines resulting from similarities between the TB lines of Ani's dam, Camille, and Jaguar Mail that include both Buckpasser and Boran, and a commonality between Jaguar Mail's dam, the Laudanum mare Elivira Mail, and As Di Villagana, who share Almé (Z).

            Acord II was a nice bonus thanks to As Di.

            The result is a very correct foal of good size and a very nice temperament:

            Cougar Mail: click for photo

            His pedigree:

            http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/cougar+mail

            Poke around in there just a little, looking at Ani and Jaguar Mail separately, and you will see that both top and bottom have similar stories, not too close up, not too far back, with Almé, Buckpasser, Boran, and Turn-To making appearances in a very balanced way.

            (Amlé isn't color-coded, as he is there once @ Z and once not, same horse but standing at Brullemail he was just Almé, standing at Zangersheide he was identified as "Z")

            Jaguar Mail offered these bloodlines in addition to being a sought after event sire in Europe and a reliable jumper producer, after having won 'Sires of the World' in Belgium, going to the Beijing Olympics (SWE), then coming home to France and winning the French Young Rider title. His dam, Elvira Mail, is a real magic mare, a full sister of a great GPx horse and a producer not only of Jaguar Mail, but also the WEG-FR jumping mare, Kachina Mail, who was runner up at the FEI Showjumping World Cup.

            He is one of the flagship sires of Brullemail, France: http://www.brullemail.com/etalons.php?Id_lang=2

            We are very excited about watching this colt grow up, have so far kept him intact to allow for sale to a breeding home if that opportunity presents itself, but in the meantime both his dam and granny will be at work under saddle, so we have our hands full while he is busy growing up.

              We had a client do a custom foal with our Coconut Grove-Final Pool mare. She wanted a 100% Thoroughbred but after searching extensively, decided Jaguar Mail was the way to go. The resulting colt is 91% blood. Here is his pedigree: http://www.horsetelex.com/horses/ped...50721?levels=5

              The frozen semen was super and as you'd expect, service from Hilltop was excellent :-)

              No surprise that the colt is definitely more TB-y looking in overall appearance than the mare's 2011 filly by a far less blooded SF stallion. This colt is very correct and looks like he'll be quite tall (17h range) with good length of leg. He has very good bone. His topline is good. Good length of neck, although I'd like to see it set a tad higher. A very strong back, loin and engine. As you'd expect, he has a huge ground covering canter. His trot has nice expression and suspension.

              Temperament is superb, but this motherline always throws impeccably behaved, human-oriented foals so it's hard to say what JM throws. At minimum, he didn't seem to bring any overpowering negatives. Overall, the colt is just a very laid back kinda guy that is a pleasure to work with and watch mature.

              Best of luck!

                Cougar Mail is a gorgeous foal! Cruised around the Hilltop website also. Had already looked at some other internet sites with hm. It would be pretty awesome -- if I could just figure it out! He would certainly match up well with my girls. He's a spectacular guy!

                    As strange as it might looks, even if Jaguar Mail has more than 80% blood he doesn't bring this to his foals. He needs a mare with blood but will add size to the mare.

                      Ani (as you can see by her pedigree) is 1/2 TB (not counting the little fractions found on As Di's side of the family tree). I definitely didn't want to go to a full on WB with her as I thought it might risk too much coarseness.

                      Ani herself is bigger than her dam, maybe already as tall as As Di (who is not large at 16h) with a little more to go.

                      Coco (as we call him) is going to be much taller than Ani, unless he really surprises us. He's only a little shy of the Landkoenig filly he's turned out with who is a little older than he is, and keeping pace with her growth rate so far.
