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.

  • Ampere (Rousseau x Flemmingh x Amor)

    Holy smokes, have you seen this horse move? Great topline! Looks like the whole package... Rousseau really produces stallion son, after stallion son. Judy Yancey just announced she would be carrying semen from this stallion for 2009. Here's a link to the youtube video. There is also more on Reesink horses website. I understand that this horse is American owned, but will be staying in Europe for competition.

      I am becoming very, very impressed with Rousseau's abilities as a sire. We have a lot of quite good WB stallions here now, but Rousseau I think is proving to be head and shoulders above the rest. It is rather astounding that we have a stallion of his caliber here in the U.S. He keeps turning out these amazing foals, some of which are even better than he is. This Ampere is going to be really fun to watch come up through the levels.

        Does anyone know how big his offspring turn out?

        What type mare (size/Movement)produced this guy?

        Since his semen is carried frozen by Judy does this mean he is not standing at Hassler Dressage any longer?

          Bellfleur,

          Rousseau, Ampere's sire is standing at Hassler Dressage.

          Judy Yancey will be offering frozen semen from Ampere, who I believe is American owned, but will be competing in Germany.

              QUOTE]


              My Rousseau foal is out of mare that is a tadd less than 16 hands(161cm) . His own growing chart indicates that he will be 16.3 to 17 hands tall. Last time sticked, 13.3 hands at 7 months. This stallion is known to give good temperament so it must be deeply inbred in this foal as his mother is the same. This little guy is talking to us all the time, always greeting us at the gate. He is the most friendly I ever own.

              Rousseau seems to throw mostly First premium, as his entire class were First Premium at this year Iron Spring Farm keuring.

              I saw Ampere (AJonc then) at the Stallion selection last January in Holland where he became Champion. I was thrilled as my foal to born was also by Rousseau out of a Flemmingh mare. Ampere is a great mover and really beautiful.

              It was the third time in a row that Rousseau produced the Champion of selection. It never happened before, not even twice!!! Well he was the 'twice'!!!

                I can hardly wait for my Rousseau from Wolkenstanza. I agree with DY about how lucky we are to have this stallion available. Last year we used his frozen semen to do an ET and had perfect luck with it.

                  We have had two Rousseau foals from two different mares, both were First Premium foals.
                  I've seen many at the keurings and several going under saddle and the two we have had here have been real sweethearts to work with. I haven't seen a Rousseau offspring I haven't liked and they look like a dream to ride. We are expecting a Wamberto out of one of the mares who this year had the Rousseau, so its going to be interesting to see how they compare in that regard.

                  I agree, you can't help being impressed with Rousseau as a sire.

                    I love love my Rousseau filly (out of a Rubenstein x Werther mare). She is 2.5 and is by far the most friendly and easy horse I have ever owned. Nothing is a big deal for her and, thus far, she is very amateur friendly. She is also extremely large and old fashioned - not at all modern like many of her siblings - right now, she is over 16.2 and right in the middle of a growth spurt. She is a very good mover in all three gaits but, admittedly, no Ampere.


                    Here is the most recent photo I have from September (she is in an awkward growth stage, for sure):
                    http://good-times.webshots.com/photo...ost=good-times

                    I think she was a little more balanced here:
                    http://good-times.webshots.com/photo...51148306GYosjR

                    And here is her adorable face:
                    http://good-times.webshots.com/photo...51148306cOpjvj

                    It has been hard to remember how young she actually is! She is just so huge and mature mentally, she might as well be 10 (patience, don't fail me now).
                    Can you tell I adore her?

                      My post might have been a little confusing, so to clarify, Rousseau AND his champion stallion son Wamberto stand in the US at Hassler Dressage. Judy Yancey is rep for frozen semen on two other champion stallion sons of Rousseau, Blue Hors Zack (Zagreb) and now, Ampere (the one in the video link in my 1st post). Zack is in Denmark and Ampere in Germany, where he will be competed (though he is American owned, though maybe in partnership). As DY stated, it's awesome that we have a stallion of Rousseau's stature right here in the US. Prior to his importation to the US, Rousseau stood in Germany and was heavily used there, another testament to his quality as a KWPN sire. He is approved Hanoverian as well. I am super impressed by Ampere's movement, and he seems to be overall more refined than the 1st two champion sons.

                                Cool horse!

                                Wow! Cool horse! Who is the american owner?

                                When I was in Holland for the Stallion Selections in 2007, the Rousseau and Krack C groups were by far the best in my opinion (the year Zack/Zagreb sold to Blu Horse). Hmm.....had been considering Rousseau for my Goodtimes X Silvio 1 mare Wildcard Keur Elite, but perhaps Ampere might be another good option.....

                                        I saw Ampere this summer when we visited the stable of Madeleine Witte-Vrees, who owned him at the time with her husband. He is really something else. Very sweet face and eye like most of the Rousseaus and a really nice size. Madeleine just adored him, and she was telling us that she would love to keep riding him, but he was so nice she was sure someone would buy him soon. And she was right! I'm hoping that maybe the new owner is keeping him there? They have a beautiful place.
