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!

    I have not seen Furstenball foals in person. A friend in my area is using him this year, and I will see that foal when it arrives, but that is a year away.

      We have bred three Fuerstenball foal's.....well number three is due in a couple weeks. No problems with pasterns. Excellent legs, very nice gaits and great minds. Oldest in pictured above and is coming three. She has a Premium GOV Foal and Foal of Distinction.

      https://www.facebook.com/media/set/e...70.1012310739/

      Fuerstenball/Espri colt from 2012. Also a Premium Foal.

      Have seen quite a few foals in Germany. Have not seen any with weak pasterns. But agree, that it is a valid concerm and I for sure would not breed Fuerstenball to a mare that had weak pasterns herself.

        Glad Nancy (Crosiadore) popped in here - I knew she had foals by Furstenball, and had no doubt seen a bunch in Germany.

          I have only seen (in person) 2 Furstenballs, a yearling and weanling. They had superb long limbs of light-medium bone. The pasterns were correspondingly long and refined but not overly angled even when moving.

            My Don Kennedy - Argentinus mare Olivia just gave us a gorgeous black Furstenball filly April 6. Olivia caught on one dose of frozen semen. Filly looks great, no problems with the pasterns.

                      I have 2 Ampere x Preference foals already, a 2011 colt and a 2013 filly. Both are EXCELLENT. This one will be our third one of this cross. Why mess with an excellent combination?

                        I would like to hear an update on this thread. Any exceptional three year olds by Furstenball ready to step out and show themselves? Strengths? Weaknesses?

                          Any posters here know any of these uber-super-duper-premium foals? Or other such Furstenball foals in Europe? He definitely seems to be producing many gorgeous offspring, but I'd still like to hear about their pasterns from those who've seen them in the flesh. I openly admit to not having a particularly educated eye in terms of conformation, much less from looking at pictures and videos, so I'd love to hear from others who have or have seen his offspring.
                          Hijacking was not the intent Catzndogz22.... I was merely trying to be inclusive so more could be added to what has already been said...so sorry if that offended in any way.

                          I think there is considerable praise for the stallion as well as the criticisms....so let's share our thoughts rather than claiming ownership. lol

                            I have seen a small handful of Furstenball offspring in the flesh from a range of Hanoverian mares. NONE have lax pasterns. All seem to be tall and elegant, have really lovely walks, and good natures. None are under saddle yet though.

                              There are some 3/4 year olds under saddle. And yes, some of them have the slightly lax pasterns. I have seen several offspring in the flesh and some have super legs, others are a bit more lax in the pasterns. Just something to take into consideration when breeding to him. Definitely a superb stallion however! Also, something to keep in mind is that lax pasterns can be springy . . certainly we don't want upright, short pasterns! So, it's just a balance

                              Here is Follow Me (champion Oldenburg stallion from last year) under saddle (and yes I think these pasterns are similar to Furstenball's - they are a bit lax, he is 4 years old and only doing a "big trot" - not collecting or taking lots of weight behind, yet the hind pasterns absorb a lot) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4n3vy...dS7qvnBkG4pGaw

                              Here is a coming 4 year old Furstenball x Sandro Hit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAGRy0ola28#t=15

                              2.5 year old stallion (approved) Furstenball x Rohdiamant http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pfAb84Oa4A

                                  At the end of the day, you must pick those bloodlines you believe in and like to ride (-: Florestan/Donnerhall/Rubinstein/Gribaldi/Landadel and a couple others work for me....the rest .....well I may dabble outside those few for the right stallion but....have two professional riders I employ and they agree with theses standards so will stick with what I know.

                                    Thought I'd share the under saddle video of this super boy from Furstenball. Finest (Furstenball x Wie Weltmeyer) barely 3 years old. And looks to me like a super young stallion. Also, correct in the pasterns from what I can tell. I love this boy!
