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.

  • Capone I

    I had the opportunity to meet Capone I (Contender/Ladalco) this week. He is a very impressive boy and seems to have a lovely temperament (to compliment his jumping ability), which he is supposed to be passing on to his offspring. I saw one of his sons: a pony stallion out of an Arab mare who looks just like a mini version of his daddy and apparently jumps like him too! I'm curious to see other Capone babies; I'm a big fan but I'm still not sure whether he'd suit my mare or not. Are there any COTHers with Capone kids they want to brag about?

  • #2
    Please take pictures! I know his breeder very well and his family! He is a fantastic stallion! I hope he will breed some Holsteiner mares!

      I met him a few yrs ago also. Such a lovely boy

      \/\/\/ I am sure it is.

      ETA: There was a real nice filly that I loved but cant find her. The person that imported the stallion Unico M had her. (I liked him too but he was sold to goldenventure and now cant find him too)

          We have a 2008 Capone I mare. She has a sweet temperament and very powerful jump, but she is a rather big old fashioned mare. Not sure I would use him on a mare who needs refinement or more blood, but I'm a fan.

            Tell me how to post pictures - I have Capone 1 x Adelma, Darco/voltaire/samber 4 day old filly.

            I also have photos of other fillies from other mares:
            yearling filly from Mr. Prospector;
            2 yr old filly from India, Argus;
            2 yr old filly from Midnight curfew, Wodan.

            We have another mare in foal to Capone for late summer and I've bred to him since 2009. Good tactible babies with never a fugly day.

              Very modern with the BEST brain ever! Jumping seems to be second nature to her, and we constantly have to remind ourselves she's a baby and to back off. It would be very easy to just overdo it with her.

                  I didn't take pics, but I have video of him "free lunging" (ie. ripping around the arena). He's pretty impressive, I'd love to see him under saddle in the future.

                  Yes, it is. Fortunately, he seems to have landed softly and is in great hands now.

                  Your baby is lovely, Copilot!! Was the mare a very modern type? I want one just like yours! My mare could use a more typey stallion, and needs a stallion that will shorten up her back a bit (which I understand Capone typically does). However, she's not particularly old-fashioned and has a decent amount of blood; I don't want any heavier, just typier. She's also quite hot, which I don't mind, but I also wouldn't mind a slightly quieter/easier temperament (which I understand Capone typically produces as well). Corinne told me that none of the babies she's seen have been as heavy as/heavier than Capone himself, so I'm wondering if he might be a good match.

                    I like him a lot, he is one of the stallions I am interested in for my full TB AFR daughter if I breed her back this year.
                    I am also very excited that a Capone daughter is in foal to A Fine Romance for 2013.

                        Well I might not bring anything worthwhile to this thread but just to say that when I was looking this year for a great stallion that would match my 3 years old special filly (Nabab de rêve out of a daughter of the no.1 jumper broodmare in Holland for the past 9 years) Capone was my first choice.

                        He is really a great stallion and when I saw one of his foals at LinMar Farm last year, this was decisive.

                        And I will also breed a second one to him, my Indoctro / Emilion mare.

                        Both mares are tall, leggy with a rectangular frame but one is a real beauty queen and the other... well let's say she would have asked me to pay her a nose job if she has been my daughter!!! … I call her my Moose head with affection as she has her daddy’s looks, so not very feminine. But to her credit, her body seems to start to get in proportion to her head… so did I said she was tall?!?

                        It will be interesting to see what this stallion will bring to this equation but I doubt I will be disapointed !

                          Tradewind,

                          Our mare is Quick Star/ Alme and from a Hanoverian damline. Copilot's more modern mare is from a TB damline. I really think he crosses best with some blood. FWIW, we bred our mare to a half TB and got a beautiful modern colt. We were so pleased we repeated for 2013.

                          I can't wait to see pics of his A Fine Romance crosses!

                            I tried to go to the website listed on the Belgian WB pdf and it won't open. Is there a link to a page on him, studfee, etc? I tried Google as well.

                              Olympic Sapphire and one of her clones were both bred to Capone 1.

                              He's 49% blood and all the offspring I have photos of have his stamp. When I share photos with prospective buyers for in uteros, I send a pic of capone and each of the offspring in almost the same pose. The response is "wow, does he have a stamp!"

                              True, using a TB mare will get you a fine type, but breeding to a tank won't necessarily give you a chunky horse. One of the fillies John VonDonagan (sp?) bred "cordelia" or "kona" from India by Argus, was 15.1 at 2, and was not a tank. India is massive and you Canadians might know her as the dam of Magnum (v'tropez).

                              A tall TB mare might get you some height (Capone's gelding Cali is over 17H), I wouldn't necessarily say you need to add blood to Capone - he's more of a medium rather than large stallion (large being Wodan).

                              All the offspring I've dealt with (including 2 intact colts, 2 and 3 yr old) have been polite and easy to handle. They're pretty regal so I could see if someone were inconsiderate that might be not suffer fools gladly, but seemed extremely poised with nice canters and balanced.

                              try googling Nolimitfarm in BC, if the BWP-NA site is giving you grief.

                                  Here is my filly's pedigree:
                                  http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/debutante34

                                  There is quite a bit of blood on her dam side, and Capone I really did tone that down. Not too much though, but enough to make a more 'solid' horse. He really did stamp her. Mama is 15.3 and she is going on 16.3 too...

                                  Her little sister, who is a month old today, is a little spitfire. WAY more attitude. She is going to be a handful. Quite interesting to see how similar/dissimilar repeat crosses can be. This little one I can see going all the way. She has that look in her eye. Not the best photo's:
