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!

    Fabregas: Maybe too early to ask NA breeders, but maybe someone in Germany can answer: Who has used him? What did he pass on? What were your mare's blood lines?

    Wolkentanz II: same questions as above and show me your pics!

    Liberty Gold: same as above and show me your pics!

    I have used Wolkentanz II, and was very pleased with the colt out of Peggy Sue (Pointmaker/Pik Bube). He was a premium with GOV, and sold as a yearling. He had a wonderful temperament, in addition to outstanding movement. Here is a link to his picture: http://i519.photobucket.com/albums/u...esleyinsp1.jpg

    I like Fabregas lots, so I'm also interested to know if anyone has used him.

        My daughters dressage mare X Rosentau x Donnerbube had a filly about a month ago by WII. I have to say I was soooo disappointed.. she was early (320 days) with very bad legs. Fast forward a month.. and she is incredible.... super pretty loves people and what a mover. I would definitely breed to him again.. Straightened right up in the legs!

            I'm following this thread, as I am very interested in these boys and especially in WII. I was so bummed when I read that you were disappointed in the filly. But then... YAY! she's turning out fantastic! So exciting to hear! I'd love to see pictures!

                I bred two mares to Wolk II three years ago. The mares I used are half sisters, one by Rosentau, one by Longchamp. Both heavily line bred on Absatz which was interesting to me as WII is also double Absatz. I am very happy with both fillies. The one from the Rosentau mother won a large Hanoverian foal show at Spruce Meadows against a very quality group (including a stallion prospect). The judges had lots of great things to say about her. The other was going through a growth spurt but I think she is quite special too. Both inherited lots of expression, beautiful necks and faces and the WII topline (a bit longer over the back and loin, short, sloping group). Neither mare has a topline like this nor have they produced this topline before. He is for sure a stallion that stamps. Both are nice movers, the one from the Longchamp dam is the best moving foal that mare has had hands down. The one from the Rosentau moves well too but so do all the foals from this same mare. Both foals are going to be much taller than the mothers. Both have their mother's temperaments.

                  Ditto to Donella. I have had 2 WII foals out of a EM by Anhaltiner (Absatz). She also has Leibniz (so line bred to WII through Ludendorf). Similar to Donella, they both were very pretty and very similar in type to each other (and in markings).

                  The colt was Top Colt at his AHS inspection (he died as a yearling)
                  https://www.facebook.com/kris.w.schu...9815966&type=3

                  The filly is now 3 years old and didn't go to foal inspection because of a bruised foot.

                  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQDHtl2m8KU

                  Filly is under saddle a few weeks and going well. She has 3 nice gaits, and it much more brave than her dam (who was spooky). Her type and frame is definite a WII one and not like her dam's at all.

                  Here is the dam (pregnant with the WII filly) and with that filly by her side and a few days old

                  This filly is about 16.2 h at 3 years old, taller than her 16.1 dam. I expect that she will end up almost 16.3.

                        I have had 3 Liberty Gold and 2 Wolkentanz II offspring, and really like both stallions. There are pictures and video links on my web site.

                        All three of my Liberty Gold fillies (2 out of a Donnerschall x Wilhelm Tell II mare, and one out of a Dederick x TB)were inspected by AHS, all three were Elite Eligible. Two did the MPT, with good scores, and great rideability scores. The one I kept is now an Elite Mare, with her second foal due shortly, and the other (EE) is competing, and ready to show 3rd level with her owner's trainer (sold her when she was 5 days old!)

                        The WII youngsters are both from the same mare (Rouletto x Akzent II.). WII improved neck set and top line on the mare, which is exactly what I was trying for. The 2010 boy has an awesome temperament, and has been very easy to deal with. We have started ground work with him, and he is smart, and learns quickly. He is a nice, correct moving, well put together youngster. My 2013 filly by WII is a keeper...what else can I say? The filly is gorgeous,easy, correct, and, did I say gorgeous?
