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!

  • 2013 Callaho Benicio foals in North America???

    Anyone have any foals on the ground already or are you expecting one in 2013?

    I know there are a few born already in Europe that I have seen - just curious who is expecting one over here and out of what mare?

    I tried to get semen fom him last year and was unsuccessful. Only one broker for North America and didn't seem too anxious about selling it. A different broker this year and very helpful but doesn't have any in stock. I am using Dante Weltino and he has some very nice foals on the ground. ❤❤❤

      There is no frozen available anymore.
      In Germany a lot of angry breeders, whose mares did not catch or who were not able to get frozen when he started to be competed last year. THese all have contracts with the stallion station that the stallion station now can not fulfill. No breeding in 2013 for him (means also no frozen was prepared - for German use that would have been not tooo difficult).
      No idea how this is going to be solved between breeders, stallion station and the third party owners...

            There is an hanoverian breeding farm in Quebec who announced on Fb and their website that they will will breed to Benicio in 2014 for a 2015 foal. I am very curious to know where they got the semen. I tried last year to get some for my De Niro mare but was not successfull. Would have loved to breed her to Benicio in 2013. He was on my top 4 final list for that mare.

              I thought I remember reading somewhere that in the fall of 2013 someone in NA that had bought a 2013 in utero Benicio was just waiting for the foal to be weaned and it was going to land in NA sometime in October/November of last year...

              Im positive there is one - somewhere - just cant remember who has it!

                Yes. I believe that was Elene's foal. Elene (Leena on the forum) sadly passed away last fall. I didn't knew Elene personnaly so I can't tell you what happened to her Benicio foal.

                  He's doing fab and has hit home in the meantime Here's a video we did for Elene after he was born:

                  http://youtu.be/nUd51LOT2aI

                  And this is him on May 1 at Gestüt Famos open day:

                  http://youtu.be/4vP3fZ8rKIU


                  And at the foal show at the Brokser Stuten- und Fohlenevent where he placed 3rd

                  http://youtu.be/cPjXkiMPLLM

                  Bodhi was passed to Roberta Byng-Morris and travelled home to Canada end of last year with a travel companion. He's going to be Elene's legacy to Canadian Dressage and I'm happy I got to know Elene and was part of this vision of hers.

                  On a lighter note we had another Benicio foal in 2013 out of Rizieres (Romanov-Warkant-Hohenstein). This is her:

                  Hope helps

                    We had a gorgeous Chocolate Palomino colt by Callaho's Benicio. He is just beautiful and with great elastic movement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqb79QHceN0 . The Video was taken when he was still very young. A picture was taken several weeks later at the foal show where he then already showed how dark he will be. He is the darkest color of Palomino I ever had:

                            I saw on Superior Sires that they will be carrying his semen this year at $1650/ dose. Is there success with his frozen semen?

                              Is it just me or does he seem bigger in front than behind? Impressive front end/neck etc but his hindquarters seem less so. Leaving out how this may/may not affect movement/ability, it is just something that irks me a bit. From a purely aesthetic point of view I prefer a massive bottom to match the big impressive front.

                              Does anyone else see this?

                                Does anyone know if this semen that is available for North American use is newly frozen or part of the older batches? My understanding from a friend that did successfully breed her mare to him for a 2013 foal, one cycle and the mare was confirmed in foal. She is based in the UK.

                                I havent personally heard of any issues with his frozen at all
