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!

              Any more news on Diarado foals? Pictures?!
              AJV Breeding


              • #27
                When looking up Diarado to see what all the fuss was about (NICE boy!) I found this link:


                Shows many of his foals for those who want pictures


                • #28

                  There was a thread about Diarado on Horse-gate. The breeder of Diarado said that if you breed to Diarado the mare should have a lot of blood (ie more thoroughbred). This was suprising to me since Diarado looked very forward.

                  I also ran across a conformation picture of Diarado. The PS website does not show him just standing there. You should be aware that Diarado's hind legs do hang back and he is a little sickle hocked. I am not saying this is necessarily bad. Just be careful which mare you use.

                    Here's the only site I've been able to find so far looks like they should have more Diarado babies on the way:


                    I've got a Diarado bay coming in April 2010, out of a Corlando/Galoubet mare and can't wait!

                        Absolutely stunning stallion. I have a Diamant de Semilly mare in foal to Berlin and I am praying for a colt. Would love to stand a Berlin X Diamant de Semilly X Quidam de Revel Stallion on the USA.

                          It really does not matter in the end - what his foals look like. It is what they do as adult horses in a show ring. And it is much too soon to tell if either he - or any of his offspring will actually do anything, he is very young, and unproven. And the babies are just that babies. It is impossible to predict much from a first foal crop.

                          Also keep in mind, that the group that owns him paid a lot of money for him. 900,000 euros - ($1.4million US) They want to get their money back on a big investment - so I would expect the hype to continue as long as possible.

                          The word I heard from Europe was that the foals were "normal" - which is what the Germans call average.

                            Not to hijack, but did you use frozen?

                              I believe she imported the mare already in foal.

                                Bloomoonfarm, Diarado's G-Grandsire is Contender, make sure that is what you want. Your mare should have a good hind legs if you consider this.

                                Dan, sometimes when they say a stallion needs a mare with a lot of blood it is not in regard to their movement or type, but is more for their mind and or quickness ie: the stallion can breed a little cold. This does not surprise me as other stallions from this motherline are similiar, Corofino, Crawford (Diarados mother is the full sister of), and Camiros. You will notice that all of these stallions breed with very nice type. Actually, the breeder of Diarado would mostly likely not have bred to Diamant unless she needed more herself. I do not know this for sure, but might speculate.

                                  I have seen many of the foals and personally, I don't care for them. In my estimation , they are not noble enough , nor do they stand over enough ground. I have seen several "sheepsheads" on them as well (Coriano is also known for this). This motherline (318d2) is well known for top breeding horses and international competitors but is also known to throw small and not very pretty sometimes. Classic case of having to accept the good with the bad.

                                  The Holsteiner Verband is very smart to have the rule in place that only allowed Diarado to cover 80 mares. After seeing and hearing about his foals across Europe , now the breeders can hand pick the mares that he covers and future foals should be better.

                                    Diarado's frozen semen is excellent. I tried for an ET this year and did get one embryo but was unsuccessful. I am going to try again in the spring. There was not a problem with the semen it is of excellent quality.

                                    My Contender mare had a filly by Catoki that was so nice I bred her back to Catoki. With Contender that close in the pedigrees I would still use Diarado on the Contender mare. Not many stallions I would do that with.

                                    I will try an ET again out of my Dirano/Derwisch mare that is in competition. I have seen a couple of really nice Diarado foals and the mare plays at least half of the equation.

                                      no, as has been written about on here before.... contender is NOT one to breed close to, ever.

                                      the volume of data from breeders have told us about problems with doing this, with oddly-growing foals ending up at the butchers. acord II and carthago are two others the breeders have learned to stay away from linebreeding with.

                                      that a few may have gotten away with it doesn't alter the fact that your chances of problems are extremely high in doing this cross.

                                      there are volumes and volumes of data folks. dig in, and save yourselves some problems.

                                        Yes, the mare is already in foal, but he is available frozen and it is expensive esp with the euro exchange now.
