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!

    You've got me mixed up. I think Meggs? Has the Trakhener. My mare is Swedish and a huge pain in the ass temperament, so throwing a good mind is number 1 in a stallion for me. Thus Knabstrupper.

    I am not good at the color genes. JB is fabulous on them. None of experts on this are reading this. Maybe pm them and ask?

      Miichelle, Altamont has Trakehner horses in her program.

      If your mare is homozygus, for what you want to produce, a solid or a patterned stallion is your best choice. With a patterned stallion, you still have a 25% chance of producing a homozygus foal.

        This search picks up a lot of good threads on this topic. The third thread down is particularly recommended.

          And I think they are renown for super, super ammie friendly temperaments. Great rideablility. That's my excuse for breeding one! I want an easy sofa with spots to ride as I advance in age!
          Coming in late here. Yes there are solid Knabstrupper stallions, the color is not a breed requirement. However I don't know of any here in the USA. There used to be one called Leofric the Dane and he was a solid bay, but he has since been gelded and is now showing in the jumpers!

          A Knabstrupper breeding stallion does have a pedigree requirement, which is 3 generations of approved breeding, as in either Knabstrupper, WB, TB or Arabian, so I'm afraid your mare (3/4 TB) could not have an approved son.

          Knabs are known for their good temperaments and easy going nature. Some of them jump really well and some jump just okay. If you PM me I cna make a few suggestions.

          If you are not worried about which registry you go with, there is frozen semen here from a stallion called Stavsdahl Lobi, who is a Leopard spot and is approved by RPSI. He himself was a great jumper, at one time he was ranked 14th in the Land Rover world rankings for 3 day horses. That was a long time ago, (he's in his 20s now). Lobi has had a few offspring here, but not many.

          Anyway if you want to know more PM me.

            One more that jumps well

            I completely forgot, there is of course Colorado Skrødstrup, who is a great jumper in his own right, plus his dam is Jeanette Skrødstrup who has had a number of good jumping sons incluing Fairbanks Skødstrup. So Colorado would be a good one to breed too.

              Hi Melyni,
              Somehow this kind of got off track and I haven't been online to comment. I'm not interested in keeping a stallion out of my mare, I'm only interested in the requirements for registering her offspring and I wanted to know if there were any solid colored Knabstrupper stallions. My mare is a few spot and I would prefer to breed her to a solid colored stallion.

              Thanks everyone for all of the replies!

                Boy, how did I miss this thread?

                Miichelle, if your mare is bred to a Knabstrupper stallion, you of course know that the foal cannot be registered with the ApHC.

                It could, however, be registered with the Appaloosa Sport Horse Registry (if they are still around - I haven't kept track of them).

                You could also get your mare inspected by the KNN or the RPSI and have the foal registered (albeit in the lowest books) of either of those registries. But it would be registered.

                No solid Knabstrupper stallions around the U.S. right now and don't really know of one anywhere at the moment, but like others have said, if you breed to one of the heterozygous leopard spotted stallions, you'd only have a 25% chance of getting another few spot. There are quite a few to choose from now for fresh semen and there are even more if you will use frozen. There is even semen left of the fabulous Apollon.

                If registration with ApHC is important to you, then look for a really nice jumping line TB that has been tested and approved by one of the WB registries. There are some lovely ones around.

                    Yes, some of us are still here....Still breeding, showing and selling spotted horses. I have to admit I am terrible at marketing my horses. I would rather spend my time in the barn. I am currently rounding up info on babies from my horses so I can update my web site. If anyone knows of any, please pass on the info. Confettifarms.com, we are also on Facebook.

                      I have to say - I have a granddaughter of Mellanie's Chocklate Confetti and I get ENDLESS compliments on her. Every single day someone stops me to say how "pretty" she is, or what a good looking horse, or a comment about her jump, or about her amazing personality.

                      I board at a large barn - and people always come up to me - "Oh! you have that wonderful Appaloosa mare - the one who greets everyone with such a happy face"

                      And she is built well, athletic. Does everything from jumping and dressage, to hard 15+ mile trail rides in steep hills and rocky conditions - barefoot to boot!

                      I often get " I don't usually like Appaloosas - but she is REALLY nice!"

                      Plus - I can't think of another horse I have received so many unsolicited offers to purchase!

                      So yes, there are NICE appaloosas out there. If you want one for english pursuits, look into the Confetti or Wap lines.
