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.

  • Jumper people, who to breed my Hano mare to?

    She's a solid, old style mare....not exceptionally tall (16hh) but big and stout. Ideally I would like to improve her croup and the length of her pasterns. She is very level headed and has a sweet temperament. Did some jumper stuff while in Germany (she was still quite young).

    She had a super filly this year by Quilot Z (Quickstar/Pilot) and has had 2 other foals by a Lanthan son as well as one by a Fabriano son.

    She is by Frappant out of a Willem's As mare.

    She is a branded German Hanoverian, this year's filly will have Zangersheide papers.

    She has cellulitis in one back leg.....it's not pretty, but that's the way she is

    Here is this year's filly....she was shedding big time!

            I love For Play! http://www.mattangofarms.com/stallions.htm I'm so excited to see what he puts on the ground here in the states - just a few more months to go!

            From their website "For Play was imported at the end of 2007 and we expect him to join the national Grand Prix levels and USDF upper level dressage. Prior to being imported For Play was selected and won his 30 day stallion test in Germany. He won by such a margin that he was exempted from the conclusion of the 70 day test so he could stand at the Celle State stud and participate in the jumper breeding program."

            Clearly heterozygous black/chestnut, seems to be throwing sabino as well. And he's got such a pedigree..

                Landkonig, Pablo, I hear For Play is really nice as well... Landkonig is just incredible and may improve your mare as wanted.

                  It might help to state why the poster should use these stallions that you guys are recommending for this particular mare instead of just throwing out names willy nilly.

                  The OP hasn't even said what dicipline she is breeding for, if she needs to stay within the Hano registry or not.

                  I would be more concerned with the straight shoulder and trying to strengthen the loin than worrying about the croup and lets try and suggest a stallion that will nick with the bloodlines.

                  This willy nilly stallion suggestions based on NOTHING does no good.


                  • #10
                    Pablo is not know for throwing size so he probably wouldn't be my choice for this mare if you want something taller. He does produce good moving beautiful horse though.

                      Thanks for the suggestions everyone...I didn't even know about For Play until today....nice boy.

                      Pablo is strong on my list.

                      As for what I am looking to produce, that's a tough one....if you break down her bloodlines she isn't strongly bred either way (dressage or jumper) as her sire's indexes for both are pretty even. Her damsire seems to be more on the dressage side.

                      So, given that, I am not sure if trying to produce a hard-core jumper should be my goal. THe colt she had by the Fabriano son is excelling as a hunter and this year's filly 'looks' to be more of a jumper (although she's still way too young to really tell).

                      Ideally I would want a foal that will have German Hanoverian papers.

                      Color/chrome doesn't matter to me at all (I actually like plain chestnuts ) but if I was to think about selling this foal in-utero, I would have to realize that most people tend to like the bling and the non-chestnut.

                      So for sure her croup/loin area needs some lengthening.

                      I will have to look up Cardento...don't know much about him. Landkonig is also one I will look at.

                      Oh, and although I do loff Connamaras.....I like them on their own, straight up. I have seen some nice crosses in the past though

                      Editing to add: Holy COW....Embassy I is really nice.

                          Ditto on Landfriese II.

                          He is very interesting but not mentioned often. Maybe those of us in the peanut gallery need to see some foals?

                          What's with the cellulitis in that leg? Will it go away? I had a young mare infected like that years ago. Legs briefly like stove pipes. Then it was gone with medication.

                            Hawkridge, I would suggest you table your breeding goals until you have a better plan of what you are trying to accomplish.

                            You mention selling in-utero - do you already have a buyer? If not, don't hold your breath as there are lots and lots of foals on the market and the market is very soft right now. Especially for something that is not very purpose bred at the top of the game.

                            You also mention getting German hano papers - is the mare in Germany? If not, you can get American Hano papers from the AHS here.

                            You mention Pablo is strong on your list - why? As mentioned your mare is small and Pablo is small.

                            Again, I think you need to hold off on breeding until you know what you want. I am not trying to be difficult, just trying to make you think more and make a better decision. The way you are going is not the way to approach a good breeding.

                              Tri - Hawkridge and the mare are in Canada so they would get German Verband papers, not AHS ones.

                                I would investigate Le Primeur for her. He looks to be a very good all around stallion. His coupling is strong, good angles, nice mover and jumper. If you search here on COTH you should find a few threads about him, with links to addtional photos and video than what a google search will bring.

                                  I am only toying with the in-utero idea for now....not a done deal by any means, I am in no hurry to sell (if I do).

                                  As far as Pablo goes, I am not too worried about his hight as the mare tends to throw bigger than her. The Fabriano son was only 16hh and the resulting foal, now going on 5yrs old, is just under 16.2hh. Her colt by the Lanthan son is also bigger. Pablo is also modern, but not too much....and he tends to put nice heads on the foals and my mare has the old style big noggin. He seems to be a proven sire and I like his conformation overall.

                                  It's only November, so I am not rushing into anything just yet and seeing as this mare is not a maiden, I have a pretty good idea what she puts on the ground so far. I am not sure about your 'the way you are going is not the way to approach good breeding' comment...can you clarify (not trying to be an ass, but would really like to know) what you meant by that?

                                  As Pinto WB said, Canada deals directly with Germany in terms of the Hanoverian Verband, not the same as in the US.

                                  Maybe I'll put her to a Gypsy Vanner *kidding*

                                    I thought the AHS inspected in Canada but I've had no dealings so it is interesting to see how they do it.

                                    I'm glad you aren't rushing. There has been a lot of stallions of quite varying types suggested on this thread and you said that you didn't know exactly what you are trying to breed for - that is a recipe for not acheiving anything. IMHO, I think you should have a very good idea of EXACTLY what you are trying to breed for, research it, know which bloodlines acheive it and very strategically make a decision. There should be a REASON you are breeding.

                                      Be careful of adding the heavy pedigrees to your already heavy mare. I personally LOVE Pablo but with that cross you'll be doubled up on Wendekreis and Graphit - both heavy - and adding another heavy horse (Pilot) to the mix...I just wouldn't.

                                      Remember also that jumping capability is more likely to be inherited (scientific term, I know) compared to dressage although it never hurts to get a jumper stallion with sweet moves to at least not negatively affect the offspring's gaits.

                                      IMHO, Cardento's conformation is really nice and his pedigree offers some lightness from Sacramento Song & LadyKiller, Capitol's known rideability, decent movement from Lord and obscenely amazing jumper capability from all of them. He's nice and tall too, so you may get some added height for your girl.
