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.

  • What colour could she be?

    After reading the other thread about sabino and other patterns, I was wondering if anyone could give me an answer as to what might be going on with my 2012 (bay) filly Happy Dayz.
    Breeding, she is by the stallion Cardento who is a grey and by Ojoysie a black KWPN.
    She has a few grey hairs in her mane and a bunch on the underside of her tail. That being said I do not think she is going to go grey as I can't find any other greying (though it is still a possibility).
    She also has white on her bottom lip so I am wondering if she is sabino. When they have white on the lower lip does that automatically mean they are sabino?

    Here are some photos of her (there are also photos of the dam, the sire and her full sibling, a black going grey colt):

    https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...3815297&type=3

    Hopefully you can get an idea by the photos that are in that album, I will take more tomorrow. There are pictures of the dam and sire in the album as well.
    I should mention this is not a sales add, she is my keeper!
    Thank you in advance

    She looks brown to me--but my "brown" meter is admittedly a little questionable, so hopefully JB checks in here, as she is the brown expert

      Thanks! I am really hope JB will come and give me answers I was just thinking she was a bay with some kind of sabino going on. I am just curious as I think that the genetics behind them are cool! I also have a rabicano mare which i think is really neat (she might be brown).

        FWIW, I think JB called my mare frame with her lower lip white, but she's a little different than your girl. I don't have any great pics of her online but you can at least get an idea here.

        I also thought sabino with all the white, but apparently that's not the only gene that causes such markings.

          I really think she's black, and the "brown" pictures are of her faded. However, she'd be an interesting one to test. Her head shot just looks very much like a black, especially her muzzle. Even in her 'brown" pictures, her head does not look like what I'd expect a brown to look like ,but what I'd expect a faded black to look like. The problem is that I've seen a picture of a tested brown horse who was pretty much jet black LOL However, I did not see a picture of that horse in the faded timeframe, so I can't compare that one to this one. I do think black for this one.

          As for the white - very much Splash due to the horizontal nature of the LH sock in particular, but all the white socks in general, and likely Sabino putting some jaggedness on the edges.

          Simkie - I don't remember your mare off hand (sorry!) but I wouldn't have called her Frame based on lower lip white. She might have something else going on that might have caused me to think frame, but not that

          And you're right in your "apparently" Splash loves to put bottom-heavy markings on horses,and behaves very much as if a given body part was dipped in white paint, which gives the horizontal look to leg white, even if the edges themselves are not smooth, and gives a bottom-heavy appearance to face white.

            I think people are looking at the mare? It's the foal in the photos closer to the bottom that you're curious about, correct?

              Ok, you'll have to clarify which foal, as I see an obviously bay one, though I think you might be referring to the second one, which is a black foal I'm 99% certain will gray.

                Based on the six grey foals I have raised so far, I would say the foal in those pictures will grey.

                  Thank you, I guess I should clarify, the mare I believe is true black, she has not faded since those pictures in 2011 before I owned her. The black going grey colt is in the album as he is a full sibling to the filly I am questioning about..

                  The bay filly is the one that I am wondering about, you might not be able to see it fully, but the tail is grey underneath and the mane has a few grey hairs. Thanks again, sorry I thought I had mentioned it was the bay filly, I was confused by the brown discussion.

                    So it's this filly you're asking about?
                    https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphot...46689766_n.jpg

                    Any white/silver hairs in her tail at this point are very typical baby flaxen, which 99% of the time disappears within a couple of years, and 99.999% of the time by the time they are fully adults.

                    I actually do think she's brown. She may also be homozygous brown, as it's theorized by researchers, and I'm seeing more tested ones, that AtAt is lighter than Ata. I'm seeing AtAt horses who actually look very much like "mahogany bay" which is really throwing a wrench in things LOL

                      Sabino does that, right?

                        It can, as well as Splash.

                          Here I took more photos of her tail today, originally I thought it was just the baby tail as you said JB but I have never seen one so grey underneath, and it seems to be growing more grey hairs. Here are the new photos:

                            I seem to remember something about the "gulastra plume" being a lighter tail with the other typical black point on a bay. I believe it is a modification of the sabino gene - perhaps that is what you are seeing?

                              That's quite a lot, you're right. And it's quite gray.

                              Gulastra Plume is not currently thought to have a link to Sabino, and it tends to be a lot more silvery as opposed to looking so gray.

                              There is quite a bit of evidence now that Sabino (and maybe even Splash) can cause some "color shifting" in the mane, tail, body color, or some combination. Given she's probably at least Splash, maybe also Sabino, that could be what's going on. That would be very cool if she keeps the lightness

                                thanks everyone! JB I am hoping it will stay a fun colour, who do you think it came from, the dam?

                                  I can't tell if Cardento has any face white, though it doesn't look like he's got any leg white. That said - don't need to present Sabino or Splash for it to be present So in this case, it could have come from either parent.

                                    I think bay and pretty sure she is not grey but we could be wrong on that. The tail could be rabicano white like a skunk tail but it could be "wild" bay as it seems more flaxeny I think that her legs in the foal pictures show that flaxeny baby color on her lower legs that goes away and is replaced by black...none of the older pictures show her legs clearly to see what has happened there. The presence of that flaxeny tan is making it less likely she is a grey as like a black foal looking smokey as a foal a bay going grey looks bay before it greys with black legs. I am guessing she might be a more wild type bay with more faded black markings on her legs and a more faded tail. Though wild bays http://www.whitehorseproductions.com/ecg_basics2.html tend to be more tan between their back legs and she seems red. Winter color and baby coats can be different coat to coat in young horses, it is a more adult color by about 3. Such a nice filly congratulations. PatO

                                      The tail is just much too gray to be rabicano or Gulastra Plume - those are white/silver. Even baby flaxen is much more blonde.

                                      Flaxen doesn't present on black-based colors.

                                      This picture shows very high black points, and nearly 100% rules out any type of wild bay

                                        Thanks everyone, so we are thinking bay or brown, and splash and with maybe sabino? I can't test her for the splash/ sabino, right?
                                        Also, for the dam, if anything what would I test her for colour wise?

                                        Thanks! I am actually super excited about her, she is everything I wanted and more! I am still on cloud 9 as I just purchased her dam (who I rode and have been trying to buy for the past few years). The filly is hilarious she has now jumped the 5ft by 6ft round bale and the gate, but very methodically :P Can't wait to breed her then show her in the future
