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.

    Dawn J-L is too modest. Her wonderful FCF Oberon's Vanity carries a ton of the good old blood, has size and is a lovely type to breed to an Anglo. He is very pretty, great bone and has a wonderful character. He may only be available frozen - you would have to ask Dawn - but check him out!

      Most of these horses being suggested so far (including the Al Marah ones) have not proven themselves to be good jumpers (particularly against real competition, not just other arabs). Plenty of decent dressage horses - but h/j? Not really.

      As someone who came from a lifetime in Arabs to Warmbloods, there are very, very few Arabians that can hang when it comes to jumping. And too, it's one of the most heritable traits.

        Thank you for the recommendation for Esquire+

        First I'd like to thank those for their mention of HG Esquire+. And 2nd, not sure if I will be allowed to post photos within my comment here or not to display a few individuals that represent the statements that follow.

        HG Esquire+ is in fact Khemosabi bred and like Khemo has a certain predictability as a sire. Esquire+ has excellent legs and feet and sires the same. Good deep hip with a lovely set neck that he uses well. He also sires individuals that are Professional Quality yet Amatuer Friendly. Due to the consistency Esquire+ displays and in an effort to show just how far we will go to support Esquire+, we offer a 100% Quality Satisfaction Guarantee on all breedings sold via GCA & Sport Horses. Some here on COTH either own a Esquire+ kid or two or have at least met a few.

        HG Esquire+ was the 2010 AWS Sire of the Year recipient, was Reserve Champion Stallion Dressage at Lexington, and also has multiple National, Regional and Class 'A' Championships. Esquire+ also has sired winners through the National level on the Arabian circuit and also one the Open circuit.

        His offspring are flashy and fancy, even tempermented, have willing personalities with good conformation. Typically settles with one collection providing mare is healthy and breeding sound and mare owner is using a vet well versed in reproduction.

        Again, we thank those that have recommended Esquire+ and am hopeful that I can share photos of a few of his kids as a Dressage and Jumper mount.











        If there is anyone who would like to see many additional photos that are available, please feel free to either email me (gaineyarabian @ aol.com) or find us on Facebook Gainey Cornerstone Arabians & Sport Horses

          Whichever Arabian stallion you choose, be sure to check his Cerebellar Abiotrophy (CA) status. It's a genetic disease that Al-Marah Quebec and Al-Marah Good OldBoy are carriers of (among other Arabian horses as well). If you breed to a CA carrier, your foal has a 50% chance of also being a carrier (provided your mare is clear). There is an online database of CA tested horses with all their results posted.

            Is this really such a concern when you are breeding Anglos? CA is only a problem if the horse has both recessive genes - if the horse is a carrier, not really an issue. Now, I could see *if* the resulting foal was a filly, and somewhere down the line you wanted to breed her back to an Arab, yes, you should test. Otherwise, not an issue.

            That goes for SCIDS and LFS as well, if you need to worry about recessives in Arabs.

            There 's a thread running in this forum about lethal white that also discusses these recessive genes.

              It is a concern to some breeders. The ATA recently voted to not allow any CA carriers into their studbooks beginning this year.

              If other Anglo-Arab breeders are breeding to CA carrier Arabians, they are perpetuating the genetic disease in their breed. Then even Anglos will need to be tested in order to eliminate the possibility of getting an affected foal.

                  Agreed. But this one can jump, and move. He's spectacular. You just have to really want the foal with the $5000 stud fee!

                    That is interesting and thanks for sharing the info. Did they do the same for SCID and LFS?

                      That's incredibly kind to say, Sue, and the Oran blood that Obie carries has been proven in Anglo and/or WB crosses in the UK as jumpers and eventers (most notably via Fairlyn Gemini and Red House Condor--also Oran and Raffles lines were behind the hunter pony stallion AM Lord Elope), but Obie is gray (perhaps homozygous; I haven't tested) which the OP specifically excluded, and he is just learning to jump so is hardly proven over fences. He is available via frozen at an introductory price and is SCID, CA, and LFS clear (also EVA negative and vaccinated). He is an incredibly sweet horse with high rideability, but having come from WBs to Arabians, I am not going to make claims that I can't back up (at least not yet).

                      Here's his 2012 filly FCF Elfin Felcity (she's the frozen semen test foal --one dose on one cycle).

                        I saw this stallion at the Midwest Horse Fair. I don't know if he has any babies on the ground. The stallion was just an amazing specimen and I believe he was 3rd level at the time. Very nice boy and very interested in the people who walked by his stall. I think on youtube you'll see video of his liberty demonstration. What was really impressive with this stallion was that he would perform a perfect levade to see what was happening on the other side of his stall. He would hold it for several minutes at a time. Very powerful back and hindquarters.

                          I totally missed the requirement for no gray and I know Obie is a young stallion who is not proven over the jumps yet, but I really, really like him. I remember walking into DAD - he was showing as my sister and I walked in. Both of us were "What a nice Arab!" and then we realized who he was (I had only seen pictures up until then) He's super nice! I do like the little bit of jumping footage you have of him. Good quality in the canter and a pretty jump.

                            All these suggestions are great...So many horses to look at, though I am definitely drawn to the CMK lines. After reading the history, I can see why. The greys I will keep in mind for future use, but for the first one I want to try to go non-grey.

                            I have a croup question. Croups in Arabs seem to be all over the place. I have seen short and long, flat and sloping and even some that slope up. Some have a very defined angle where the croup ties into the loin, some seem to have a great deal of muscling there so it appears to just be a nice round flow into the loin. I thought I knew what the ideal croup was but now I am looking at all these stallions and then I looked at my five horses and am now thoroughly confused. My 17.2 TB jumper who canters 3'6" fences and can jump the moon has a short almost flat croup with a long distance from hip to point of buttock. My 15.1 draft cross jumper has a typical drafty engine with a long distance from hip to point of buttock. Huge huge stride on this small horse with a very powerful jump, but he has a croup that starts behind the hip that slopes by far the most of all my horses. The mare in question here has what I would consider a long croup, it starts almost over the hip and is sloped what I would consider normal.

                            What is the ideal croup length, slope, and length from hip to point of buttock for a jumper?

                              Yes, those also. SCID has not been allowed for many years as there has been a test available for a long time. The test for CA is relatively new (<3 years, I think), so the CA and LFS rule is new.

                                I LOVE this stallion!!! I've seen him twice at SHN and he just gets better and better. He's an honest 15.3 with exceptional legs, bone and he has an ideal structure for jumping. *Oration is a French Arabian that was bred for the sole purpose of Racing. Love him so much I've chosen him to breed to my AHS approved mare Caraechstrodinair in hopes of getting a filly to keep. Can't wait until April! That said... he really is an amazing choice for a TB mare, as he is very much TB type.

                                  CMK's are close to my heart as well and make excellent outcrosses for TB & WB mares. In a private conversation with someone very high up the ladder with the Hannover Verband, I showed him a video of the Arabian stallion my AHS approved Arabian mare was currently in foal to and was told to find a good TB mare and breed to him, hope for a filly and bring her to an AHS inspection. He liked the balance, uphill canter and overall substance - the stallion... Magic Aulrab.

                                  I can put you in touch with his owner and get you a screaming deal on his stallion fee - Magic is 20 this year and just hitting his stride in the breeding shed. LOVE LOVE LOVE my MA colt. He loves to jump! As he like to clear his 4 ft. fence and join the cows in the irragated pasture next door - haha

                                      Hi! I see that my horse was mentioned as a possible candidate for this mare. While Magic Aulrab is not a Dressage or Jumping horse he is a 100 mile endurance horse so he has shown an aptitude for Sport. He is extremely athletic, not just my word but the word of an inspector with the Hanovarian Verband felt that after watching his video on youtube. If you message me I will tell you this individual's name and show you the video. Anyway, I don't want to steal this thread anymore as I know there are many other viable options for this mare. If you have a question for me please message me.

                                      Regards,
                                      Peter

                                        I started a new thread for my croup question.

                                        Oration is a very nice horse and he looked great in the video, I just can't swing that stud fee at this time. He is one to keep in mind for the future.

                                        At this time with the research and videos I have seen, I am leaning towards the ones with Aurab in their lines.

                                        Also, thanks for the info on the CA and SCID. I was aware of SCID but not the other issues. If the foal turned out nice enough I would want breeding it to be an option, so therefore not a carrier of these genetic diseases.

                                          I have a croup question.
                                          What is the ideal croup length, slope, and length from hip to point of buttock for a jumper?

                                          I have had a CMKs. Powerhouses. Very trainable. AM Quebec is a dressage horse. The thing about arabs is they can do many things. I lost last summer my double Aulrab Aurab on the sire side. He had the typical look, chestnut long blaze 4 TALL stockings.

                                          If you see a flat croup, pass That is a halter horse body. Flat croups are weak croups, but you know that already. Dressage you need some lift to the front end, perhaps your mare has that. I would not necessarily go for a park bred horse (high knees), those can be a little on the hot side. Neck and croup angles should match. iow no flat croup or low set neck.

                                          I believe Echo Magnifficoo has the highest neck set I have EVER EVER seen on any horse. He does pass on his beauty, and neck set. I have seen him in person several times in WA. He is fine boned, and small, and very very pretty. If you had a heavy heavy mare, drafty, he could lighten it up, but I would be worried to get a flat croup since he is a halter horse. But here he is for reference of what a flat croup looks like, you may have to look for some other photos, also of his offspring. I have seen many of his sons and daughters back in the day. He sure stamps them with his look for sure.

                                          I believe Bazy children were working with her in her breeding operation. So the same should be continuing.

                                          AM breeding is my vote - still. :-) They have a PROVEN breeding program.
