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!

    They, particularly Aloha, are not my cup of tea but every horse has a mom. Laurie bred a nice mare (in all aspects) to RW and got Juliet, awesome foal. TrueColours bred a mare to him years ago, very very nice. You breed a witch you may end up with one, two is not enough for me to write him off.

    Aloha passed his testing... With no scope. Isn't that alarming? As a stallion owner, you are representing your business and yourself as a professional. On a personal level I love to hear personal antidotes however I really feel it reflects poorly on an SO to talk so poorly of other stallions, sorry.

      Great mare lines can do wonders for any stallion!!!! Time will tell

      I don't own stallions, breed small scale and my only comment is that there are videos and ads that suggest Redwine is Hanoverian - he may have been born in Hannover but far as I know, he is not approved Hannoverian - I think Mecklenburg? Correct me if I am wrong - but "registered" and "approved" are different - thus magicteetango not sure which one "passed his testing" - suppose RW - who was for sale for some time in Europe - be that as it may - old history

      Have no idea about Aloha -
      "Her life was okay. Sometimes she wished she were sleeping with the right man instead of with her dog, but she never felt she was sleeping with the wrong dog."

        I meant Aloha. I was under the impression he passed was just unpaid for the 70 day test at Silver Creek. Edited my post it was confusing!

          I just thought this typo was funny. No dis on the typer, just funny, and perhaps more apropos than "anecdotes," which I'm pretty sure was the intended word.

            Regardless of how much I love my filly, I wouldn't breed to her sire if they paid ME. Too much history to bother with in my opinion and I have been very vocal about that here and on my personal FB page. But horses do not get to choose their connections, they are innocent. They are what they are in spite of who owns and markets them.

              You are correct magicteetango. Thats why I never said anything before this. As a SO I am not 'allowed' to say anything but I would really like to see us all try harder to breed athletes. Certainly Hunter Breeding is a fantastic way to show our beautiful young horses but I just hope we all work hard to breed great conformation AND great athletes. I just don't see these two stallions producing great athletes. I really hope the two Redwine's I know of are the exception instead of the norm. There are a lot of Redwine's out there. Considering the nice mares they were bred to I bet there are some great one's out there too.
              I'm not sure Aloha actually passed his test. He didn't do the cross country. I just don't know.
              May I point out that I suggested many other stallions, besides mine, who are wonderful. If I took some more time I could probably come up with even more. We have so many wonderful stallions in the US and Canada.
              I was really only saying that with all the negative surrounding these stallions it just seems to me that there are many other better choices. I am not trying to offend anyone, just trying to understand everyone's thinking.

                I know you suggest others, Maggie, and I whole heartedly agree with you about producing athletes. I am just reluctant to villify these stallions when the person at fault here is JB. I have no experience with either stallion or their offspring so I am not defending them either, I have no idea. But I don't think every offspring was a nasty puke either.

                Martha... Darn this auto correct. That is what I typed, my Samsung also changes mare to made all the time... I always worry people on COTH must think I am such an idiot lol. "My made is due in June" "I enjoy antidotes"... Love it.

                  Peter Pletcher said Aloha should be cut and made into a Children's Hunter as he had no scope. I saw him land splay-legged onto the bank at the stallion test in an unsuccessful attempt to jump up onto it. It was about 2.5 feet high I think.

                  So help me understand why anyone is still breeding to Redwine and Aloha?
                  Does he even have the temperament suitable for this? I saw him go, and he is small, with a piss poor attitude about work, especially when it gets hard. Didn't he score a 5 on his walk at the 70 DT, in addition to being too lame to do the CC?
                  The black with bling thing is getting ridiculous. Breed to improve the sport, not for color or white markings!

                    Right again, I shouldn't blame any of this on the stallions. I guess I'm just a bit tired of the whole thing. I gave away many breedings to people who got burned by Jill, and I did it happily. It's just a bit frustrating to continue to try to do the right thing (I got another call from someone asking for a free breeding this past week) just to have it continued by someone else. Sorry I let my frustration show.

                      For what it’s worth, there are many of us who not only understand the points you are making, but agree with you (and 3Dogs) 110%. You have a bit more credibility than many because you stepped up to help make a bad situation better... which says a lot about you - all good.

                          While I personally will not and would not support JB in any way, and would not breed to any stallion where $1 landed back in her grubby hands, bashing Redwine across the board is silly. No stallion is right for every mare, and no doubt Redwine can fancy up a good jumping, scopey mare for the hunter ring. Above is an example (my friends mare)- this 3yr old Redwine qualified for the YHS finals in free jump with very impressive scores. Rotspon has also thrown a few phenomenal hunters. To each his own in stallion choice- although I do feel bad for hardworking stallion owners who gave free breedings to cover for JB, and understand your frustration.

                              It is exactly what I suspected all along - JillB still owns Redwine, and sent him out of the country so he wouldn't get seized by AC or attached as an asset in a bankruptcy or legal case.

                              As for Ashland - that, too, is what I thought. When they first came out and said they would honor all those contracts, I said to myself, "All rightey then. Let's see the fine print." And sure enough, they are charging a booking / collection fee. So not only did they initially lie about buying Redwine, but they were also very misleading about honoring outstanding breeding contracts. Sure sounds like they are ethically challenged, too, and it will be interesting to see how long it is before they and JillB are at each others' throats.

                              I also wonder how many mares JillB has bought in the meantime, how many she is breeding FREE to Redwine (because I have no doubt that part of her deal with Ashland included her breeding as many mares to him as she wants) and how many other people she will scam and defraud before she is stopped.

                              As for Aloha - the Stallion Testing website shows him as NA because JillB never paid for his testing. http://www.nastalliontesting.com/index.php/results/2009

                              But here are his scores:
                              Stallion, Overall Score (Ranking), Dressage Score (Ranking), Jumping Score (Ranking)
                              Aloha, 80.89 (13), 85.89 (12), 80.01 (12)

                              His total of 80.89 was barely over the minimum required for approval, and it is just amazing to me that some people are so dazzled by the chrome that they would breed to him - in my book, he has not much at all to recommend him as a stallion.

                                  No different registries have different minimums. 80 is the minimum for some registries, but certainly not all registries (eg, AHS you need a 90 minimum if you are a Hanoverian, 120 if a non-Hanoverian) http://hanoverian.org/stallion-licensing-and-approval/

                                      Somebody correct me if I am wrong but I thought a portion of those marks were not actually earned by Aloha but rather he was 'Averaged In' because he could not complete the testing.

                                      If this is the case and a portion of his scores were averaged and he was still that low, he must have been quite low to begin with.

                                        Have contracts been made public?
