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 just bred a mare to him, an EMC Hanoverian by Del Piero x World Cup I. He has a wonderful pedigree, by Diamond Hit with a solid damline that includes Rohdiamant and Lavarino. This link provides pedigree details: http://www.dreamscapefarm.com/HorseDetail.aspx?ID=480 The SO reports that he has a wonderful temperament, and he has shown to Prix St. George. No SO provides better service than Jennifer of Dreamscape, and his semen was still in excellent shape after having an unexpected 24 hours at the Fedex hub before delivery.

                  I was at Dreamscape a few weeks ago and saw Diamond Stud. He is a very impressive boy, but personally I would not breed to him to produce an eventer. He is a big powerful dressage type and is not of the modern type I would want to breed to for an eventer. Looking at Dreamscape stallions, I would be more inclined to breed to Sagnol: long legs, very modern type, plus he has a son out of a TB mare who is over in Germany for the Bundes for eventing. Here is the video of the Sagnol son that Jennifer sent me:

                  http://youtu.be/YPkyeQKcM_8

                  Bon Balou, Novalis and Checkmate are also Dreamscape stallions I liked as potential event sires with the right mare. I think Bon Balou would particularly be good for producing an eventer with a mare with lots of TB blood.

                    Haha tradewin, sagnol was actually my original choice. I really like sandros star. I was looking to breed to sandros heir maybe too as he is out of the sandros hit line.

                      Tradewind, can you comment on his coupling? It's somwhat hard to tell from photos but in person is he short coupled? I can see what you mean about him being big and less modern, not as leggy as some of the others....
                      I love him.

                        I met Diamond Stud in person when he first came to Dreamscape. To me he is the real deal. He is an international quality mover IMHO. Not necessarily the long legged Sandro Hit type that is so popular now, but the real power and ability to engage the hind end that is necessary for an FEI dressage horse. I saw him in the stable and being lunged. He was very easy to handle but with lots of stallion presence and charisma. I am very pleased to be breeding my Belissimo M/Freestyle/Wolkenstein II mare to him this year. I don't think he would be my first choice as an event sire. Talk to Jennifer, she is very honest about which one her stallions would be the best match for your mare.

                          I kind of want to breed my three year old Rubinus mare to him and have been going back and forth for months!! I am just starting her now and am trying to cut down on numbers but also have another three year old on the go so..... I was initially thinking of him to her mother but she is 21 this year and I'm not sure if I should breed her again. The only thing is the mare is a touch long in the back. Love his athleticism and agree Forte that he is excellent behind. My mare and all her offspring (three year old included) are great behind and I want to capitalise on that. Some flashy moving stallions these days I don't think have enough articulation in the hind leg.

                                I knew Diamond Stud in FL and he's lovely, very nice boy, but not an event horse. His babies could probably clean up at the lower levels where they don't really have to gallop but I think they would be quite limited. He's built to sit and collect, not to stretch out and gallop.

                                That said, I love this horse. He'ss an amazing mover with a fantastic personality. His mother was also a very solid citizen, a classy girl, but not such a modern type.

                                  Agree with what Forte said. I would absolutely breed the right mare to him for dressage, particularly a more modern type mare. I wouldn't say he is overly short coupled, ie. not in the popular modern sense, and if you were looking for a more modern, short coupled stallion to breed to a heavier, older style mare there are others at Dreamscape that would suit this purpose better (eg. Sagnol, Freestyle, Sir Gregory). On the other hand, he is not the type IMO that necessarily needs a highly modern mare, and I think he will cross well with a number of mares, particularly those that need that power and sitting ability behind. Like Forte said, he certainly seems like he would have the power for the higher level collecting work. He also seems to have a fabulous temperament.

                                    Having bred multiple times to Diamond Hit, I would breed to Diamond Stud as well. My mares have a lot of Holsteiner which goes very well with this sire line.
                                    He gets extra points from me for having Rohdiamant on the dam side.

                                      Not only the Rohdiamant on the damside, but the Holsteiner Lavarino as well. I'm so hoping my mare is in foal; we will know on May 15.

                                        We are getting ready to bred out TB mare to Diamond Stud this month. Just waiting for her to cycle. I think he will cross very well on our Tb mare to make a modern sport horse foal that will hopefully excel in the dressage ring. We have used this mare to cross with Hunter stallions in the past but I think she has missed her calling. Very excited to see what they produce together.
