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!

    so many choices, so little time! No contracts signed yet, but have some forerunners:

    V'tropez, Diamont de Semilly or Baloubet du Rouet (repeat) for f. Raltes van Beekvend (Darco x Raltes-elite, Voltaire/jaliscoB );

    Indoctro, Quickstar or Capone 1 (repeat) for Adelma (Darco x Unity-keur, Voltaire/samber);

    Ramiro B or Cevin Z for Nanou d'oryvil (Yarlands summersong x Radiuse, Jojo de Mesnil);

    The others are still hazy and well, can I say SSA dependent?

      I usually have solid plans at this point and feel so behind having absolutely no definitive decisions made yet! The boys that I think will make the final cut as of right now though are Checkmate and Cabalito...and I have a carry over breeding from 2013 to Just the Best. I am still trying to decide how much, if any, of my frozen stock I will use in 2014 as most of my mares are older and one I am contemplating putting up for sale in foal...tick tock, tick tock!!

                      I'm trying not to be superstitious, so I figure I will list the mares we are using and short list of stallions and that way I'm not tempting the universe ?? Also, looking at one or two custom ET foals.
                      Mares:
                      Selina KWPN Sp- (Mermus R - Wokina- pref pres elite, Nimmerdor x Uppercutt)
                      La Ina 18- (Libero x Voltaire x Sandro)
                      Cortina 117- Continue x parcours)
                      Obsession-premium AHHA (Canaletto x carthago x Renomee)

                      Stallions on the top:
                      Cardento
                      Vdl Carrera
                      Hunters Scendix

                        Now why does everyone think this is superstitious to share? I already have terrible luck, if one believes in such things, so I'm not too worried to say that Levante SLS (Landfriese II/Galoubet A) will be bred to Mezcalero (Voltaire/Ramiro Z).

                        Honestly, I was not planning on breeding next year (I seem to have very bad luck with breeding), but I saw on FB it will be his last year standing to the public! He was in my top 3 for her mother and I actually think L, who is more refined, will be an even better cross.

                        I would love to breed to Epsom Gesmeray at some point RanchoAdobe. Do you already have a foal of his, or am I imagining that? I know someone on this forum has bred to him.

                                TTP- I do have a to die for filly from him this year out of my Libero x Voltaire x Sandro mare. She was a foal of distinction for GOV and we are planning to repeat the cross this spring for a carbon copy.
                                If anyone is interested:

                                  I don't think we are going to breed next year as there are too many horses ready to embark on their FEI careers but if we did...
                                  Amelia WF (Again and Again x Aly North xx) to Dressage Royal
                                  Wallstreet Rose (Wallstreet Kid x Flaming Rock xx) to Dressage Royal
                                  and Waterlily WF (Waldaire x Again and Again) to Dressage Royal

                                  Amelia had a stellar Avebury foal in 2009 and he's coming along fantastically, so it would be tempting to repeat that cross. Wallstreet Rose had a super Wizard filly in 2011, so that too is a tempting cross to repeat. Waterlily has a half sister by Dressage Royal, so we would like to see how our best Waldaire daughter does as a broodmare as her damsire has been so reliable over the years in producing FEI horses for us.

                                    Baelidin CHF (Indoctro/Nimmedor) to Corland

                                    Ralma (Indoctro/Nimmerdor) to Zavall

                                    Pamina VDL (Nimmerdor/Lord) to Concorde
                                    Elusive HANN (Evergreen/Antoran) to Great Pleasure
                                    Zadira (Great Pleasure/Octrooi) to Lupicor
                                    Gisela (Zapatero/Great Pleasure) to Etoulon and Crespo (ET)

                                    10 mares to foal out first. Praying all goes well.

                                          We are planning the following breedings in 2014:

                                          Independence (Richard X Goodwill X Dreamstreet) to Great Pleasure
                                          (this will be Richard's first grandchild we are hoping for a h/j stallion prospect)

                                          Caaboom (Concorde X Calvados X Wolfgang) to Richard
                                          (repeat of the 2013 breeding)

                                          Katie D Car (Amour Parfait X Orpheus X Preussengiest) to Richard
                                          (crossing our fingers on this one as we have not gotten her in foal previously)

                                          Down to my Sox (Maranatha Calvalier X Windsong Gold Reign) to Oh Kaptain Underpants SFS
                                          (this will be our first breeding to our young pony stallion)

                                          Very excited about this year !!!
