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.

  • Breeding decisions for me ?

    Well as I am saying each and every yearnothing is fixed until the semen is ordered:

    But I would appreciate ideas - pictures of all lady can be seen on my homepage in the mare section (by the way if you have issues to open it - let me know):

    We have:
    A mare by Chromatic xx - Grundsee (by Grundstein). She could use a nicer neckset and maybe a bit more thletism in her movement. She has a good hindleg but I would like it more electric so to say. At the moment pregnant by For Compliment for the second time.
    In her close relatives lots of sport horses, no international caliber, but higher level Amateur horses, both in jumping nd dressage.

    The Florencio - Prince Thatch mare has a good hindleg but is not the tallest (which does not matter she appears tall - good frame). The super freedom of shoulder that I wanted to have from Florencio did not appear so this could be improved. Walk and canter are really good. Overall she is still a bit of a teenager. She was bred to Benetton Dream and I might get a discount for him next year as she did not take. He may have changed owners, so that is not clear yet.

    Than we have my Sandro Hit - Rouletto mare. She could use a little heavier "leg conformation" for her size - missing an english word here. the stallion could inherit result into smaller horses but should definitelyimprove quietness and inner calmness(being more relaxed). She is a pretty good jumper and she has three super gaits including a good walk. The latter disappears into a Sandro Hit gait as soon as she is getting tense or distracted. A stallion that creates sleeping pills would not be bad ;-) at the moment pregnant by Farewell III.

    So let the ideas float. Oh: stallion has to be in europe (preferably Germany) and has to be approved Hanoverian (must not be hanoverian though).

        Linda - I have to say: I did not drink enough Gluehwein !!! ggggg What became of the other video of testrider ?

        Yes he would be an idea for Caribic ! He will get on the list ! I will bug you and may pay Jochen a visit. Caribic is about 1,68 - 1,70m.

        O.k. Sandro Hit gait. Well that is the typical gait that a lot of Sandro Hits make out walk. It is something very strange inbetween pacing and short strides and not really pacing. It is no 4-beat anymore but also not a real pace. They sort of exagerate the walk a bit in a very strange way. In any case undesirable !!! A lot of Sandro Hits do have only this sort of walk. I know that mine can walk in a clear 4-beat with very nice rhythme, overreach of 1,5 feet at least and nice freedom of shoulder (in german we have a specific wort - Schreiten for freedom in walk - no idea what that is in english) . If I would not know she has it, I would have given her away without hesitation. This mare has all one can ask for, but on the same side she is on the small path between genius and lunatic !

          Alexandra, you have lovely mares!! Thinking of your Sandro Hit mare how about Desperados? He and his young offspring seem to be doing quite well! With his breeding, it seems you may get the "bone" you desire and maybe a sleeping pill or two I haven't had the chance to see him in person, maybe you have?

            I do know of a stallion that would be a great match with your Sandro Hit-Rouletto mare but he is a Hanoverian that is over here & 'only' approved Oldenburg Verband, not Hanoverian. However, he does match your list of improvement requests with lots of offspring on the ground to prove his prepotency (great minds, grounded temperaments, lots of bone without being heavy) and has excellent frozen semen for export to the EU through Select Breeders.

            I'd lean towards a non-Donnerhall line for the Florencio-Prince Thatch just because of a gut feeling...hmmmm, how about Londontime or Alabaster?

            For the Chromatic-Grundsee (is it Grundstein I or II BTW?) - what about Wolkentanz I? We've had very good success improving the things you listed with him on our half bred mares...especially the neck set & elasticity. The hind legs have been good but there is a tendency towards having a straight(er) stifle on most of the get that I've seen, so that is always a worry, but the engagement & use is more than adequate.

              Who is that first one ?
              With a good enough price for the semen I may even try frozen and branding Oldenburg if I like the package.

              I am a Wolkentanz fan, but for Caribic I have to ask someone else aswell and I that person does not like him. :-(( For the very same things you say i like him. Walk can be a bit of an issue with some horses though. (I have used him 4 times on different mares already :-) ) And Wolkentanz II (due to size) is also already on the list for the Florencio.

              For the Florencio - yes I have the same feeling - no real Donnerhall. Alabaster is a complete nogo for me due to work ethic of a lot of them. Londontime maybe an idea, I will also look into Locksley II even though Weltmeyer would be doubled up there.

              Grundsee was privately owned and is by Grundstein I. A good jumper and one of Caribic's halfsisters competed upto level S (1,40m I believe) in Germany. We are not sure if she can jump aswell. Her maretest was not very good in that, but the owners at that time were dressagespecialists, so who knows how she was prepaired. She is not as sound that we would want to risk testing her freejumping ourselves.

                I haven't seen any foals, but what about Imperio for the Florencio? if she has good enough hindleg? or would you be worried too refined?

                Londontime is a hottie but I do like him. Cordoba?

                For Sandro Hit mare, how about Brentano II? you will get your own little Samarant backwords (LOL, that is how it works right>)

                  Linda as Imperio is at the same station this was already last years idea: when she did not take I wanted to change to him. I think he may be a good match.

                  Brentano - hmh. Needs thinking.

                  I have thought also about Fabriano for the SH.

                  Any more ideas ?

                    Your mares are very lovely!

                    Just off the top of my head, what about Stedinger for the Chromatic mare? I like him the best of the SH's, and there is the interesting addition of Lanadel to add to the jumper in her pedigree. I also like Fuerst Romancier.

                    For the SH mare, are you trying to say that you want to add bone?
                    What about De Niro?

                    The Florencio is tough, I will have to give it some more thought...

                      I think that the Stedinger would produce too tall for the mare, as she is already tall. Besides, I think Alexandra wants other than SH line for now (my guess only)

                      So, Herr WIndler sold Bennetons Dream you think? but with Anne S.F. not there. Imperio is a beautiful horse so if you can switch your breeding that would be interesting. He had a couple of foals this year, perhaps you can track them down?

                      So, why not Donnerhall on the the Florencio? the Florencio/Donnerhall at the HLP was impressive in the dressage area?

                        How about Rosario for the SH? I really think he is an under utilized stallion and might have what you are looking for there. Good luck with your stallion picks.

                          That was what I used on her when she was three. She did not take than and now he is in GB, so I thought this is a hassle.

                          Linda is correct, no more SH blood in my breeding (well at least this is the idea, but who knows).

                          De Niro - Too short legged for my taste.

                          No Donnerhall on the Florencio, well I would also like to keep length of leg, not shorten what can do.

                          Fürst Romancier, have to check him out.

                          About BD - I do not know, I have to find out if rumours are true or just BlaBlaBla.

                            The first stallion I'll PM his info.

                            Linda asked a few posts back about why no Donnerhall and I'll explain why I said that - you had requested a free shoulder (which to me means a free elbow), so that is a hit or miss with that D line IMHO. No offense on the thumbs down with Alabaster...you see these guys & way more of their offspring than I do!!!

                            Thanks for the info on Grundsee. We knew Grundstein quite well when he was first brought over to the US, so I am always curious & wanting to learn more!
