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!

    Ok I'll wade in! Short list -

    Frozen - Furstenball - Lissaro - Cachas - Diarado - Colorit
    Backup Fresh - Schwarzenegger - Rubinus - Kumano - Case

    Having just broken four ribs in a horsey accident I spent the last five weeks researching stallions with a subscription to Clipmyhorse. The mares have a bit of age on them so I am hesitating to use frozen this year.

    Has anyone ever used any of the above stallions? Some of these are fairly new to the scene, but maybe some of you have used them?

      ooooooooohmahgerrrrhhhd. Love love love! Now, are the handlers teeny or is the baby giant? How about the temperament of the foal?

        Only thing I know for sure is I'm breeding my 17h MMB Oldenburg mare, by Tantris, to my TB stallion Seattle Jones for a super event prospect!

        Haven't decided about my TB and Hanoverian event mares..... TB is in foal to Royal Appearance, Han is leased to a dressage breeder, bred to Landkoenig, not sure if I want to lease her out again or breed her myself.....

          Thanks Fair Weather! I am pretty small, but Tula is a pretty normal sized foal- she is very harmonious and perfectly put together so she seems bigger than she actually stands. Her temperament is superb. She is no doubt the alpha of the herd, but had a sweetness and intelligence that is an improvement on the dam.

            As both 2013 foals sold pre-weaning, both w/b bred back to Tzigane *Pb*:

            Hennie *M* (E.H. Muenchhausen - E.H. Rockefeller) for a full sibling to 6yo Young Jumper Champion Herzmond, 2* Eventer Harry Houdini *Pb* and FEH Ch Hurricane Hannah.

            Orania (Harlem Go - Heraldik xx) for a full sibling to the extraordinary 2013 colt Overlord (Oli).

                We had every intention of keeping her but the perfect opportunity arose and she has been sold with retained breeding rights in 2016. We will repeat the cross this spring.

                  She is really spectacular!
                  I'm considering him for my TB mare, but just trying to find some info on the cross to TB's.

                    I'm still working on mine.

                    Some I am considering

                    BeeBe (Briar) to Ecuador Skødstrup

                    Anastasia Riggantonia Bonita (Rosentau) to Nobody's Harlequin

                    Demoiselle D'Avignon (Dauphin) to Nobody's Harlequin

                    Padraigin av Drommarna (Pegasus v. Niehaus-Hof) to Halifax Middlesom

                    CCS Raina (Halifax Middelsom) to Schiffon

                    CCS Galadriel (Don Principe) - Ecuador Skødstrup

                    1 more left to decide who to breed too.
                    Ululu (Ariadus) -----? Probably Halifax Middelsom

                      Trying again with Pirouette CF. Her last foal is coming two (siiiigh). Also on the hook for my first Anglo breeding, Risky Allure -- aiming for an ammy-friendly eventer out of that one. Sire is Porte CF for both.

                      And yes, I plan these year-round!

                        I only have one to breed next year (a holsteiner mare by Columbus who was last bred to Lordship) and have it narrowed down to either Lamarque or Casciendo. Maybe in a month or two I will have made my decision...


                        • #52
                          not to detrail but has anyone used Arezzo? I'm wary of any Heartbreaker son as the last son we tried was just a waste of money...a lot of money.

                            I have an Oldenburg mare (Cordaleme x Landedel x Grannus) thinking: Banderas, Bon Balou or Cunningham (fresh as backup)
                            I also have a KWPN mare (Indoctro x Concorde x Amulet) thinking: Ustinov, Goodtimes, Zirocco Blue or Numero Uno. Would love opinions or other ideas! Thanks.

                              We will be breeding Amazing to our Cassini mare again (fingers crossed…she had some uterine damage due to the foaling farm missing the birth of her colt in 2013). As long as she stays happy and healthy through foaling in June, we'll do a rebreed. We also just lucked into a breed lease on a Rubenstein mare that was an AO hunter with fantastic show record who will be bred to Amazing in 2014 as well.

                              Breeding season is coming up fast! Best of luck to everyone

                                I have two this year.

                                I will be breeding my Roman Nature-Rohdiamant/Cor Noir mare to NEGRO!!! Love how he crosses with German mares! So I'm super excited to see this cross.

                                And I will repeat my Old approved TB mare to COR NOIR - which produced my 2013 premium and high point foal (keeper filly). Great cross!

                                My DH tells me these will both be for sale... but we'll see
