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.

      There are a thousand ways to say the same thing. Heck, you can say the exact same sentence five different ways with five different intonations and five different meanings. I didn't mean to start a debate on semantics, just that sometimes the message may be lost in the delivery, as Bayhawk so nicely put it.

      For example, I do not breed Holsteiners, but since I own and am now also breeding jumpers, naturally I have plenty of Holsteiner blood floating around here. Rather than having posts that say "Are you crazy?" is essence, it would be more helpful for me to hear WHY it is a bad idea to double up on certain lines, etc. Perhpas the assumption is that EVERYONE knows not to double Capitol, or Corrado, or Contender, or Accord II, or ... but I am one who does not necessarily know all these "facts", and more importantly the WHYS of them.

      I hear a lot of absolutes thrown around but I often don't get solid answers about WHY that is the case. That is what is important to me, and I am more inclined to learn and remember that, than just a series of arbitrary rules of do's and don'ts, if that makes sense.

      So I apologize if you thought I want people to always be spreading sunshine and roses, that was certainly not my intention. Just that for me there is more to educating than "don't do that".
      This brings up a very good point. People need to know and most times they will ask. Remember the "doubling up on Contender" thread a little while ago ? That was very informative as to why one probably should not try this. If a breeder did it anyway , it wouldn't have solicited such a harsch response.

      This breeding however , is very arrogant in my opinion and has no regard for the welfare of the foal.

      Capitol is known to throw very heavy and cold , with short croups and inbred foals to him are now proving to have a very high rate of OCD. He is represented 3 times. Contender has issues with the hind legs and throws it . He is represented twice. Corrado has major issues with topline production and he is represented twice. All this outside of the fact that all 3 sires whice are respresented 7 times , are old type with old blood.

      And no Omare........One outcross stallion does not help this. The inbreeding is too concentrated , too close.

        I"m curious, is doubling up on Capitol's dam Fiola as problematic? Or just not something ever done?

          no, not a problem, especially when from different children.

          i have a slightly different view about linebreeding two of the earlier mentioned stallions. the warnings and failures around linebreeding to contender and acord ii are clear. however, it is getting harder and harder not to linebreed to capitol and there are not many downsides coming from that when the rest of the genotype and phenotypes are fully taken into account. with the right mare it can work fine.

          also, corrado can be linebred but only where toplines are strong and again, better when he's further back in the resulting pedigree.

            Double Capitol has been working just fine for the production of horses for the sport. Triple Capitol ? Not for me , but I could see it if done properly thru sex balance , just not coupled with double Contender and double Corrado.

            I have often considered and may in fact breed one of my Cassini II / Lavaletto / Acord II mares to Campesino. This would line breed the two Capitol sons , thus concentrating his genetics. If you look at the rest of the pedigree also , you will see that Capitol would be the only common horse in that pedigree other than a couple crosses to Corde la bryere far back. Campesino / Cassini II / Lavaletto / Acord II / Sable Skinflint xx........this is a good example of proper linebreeding to Capitol and my mare should be able to accomodate this due to her proper physical construction and she has enough blood.

              to go back to the question of Diarado and his foals. i have to say under saddle he is charming to watch work, very easy and compliant, with lovely looseness and a real athletic ease about him. I didnt get to see all his foals at the recent oldenburg foal inspection held here but the ones I did see had a real quality, and to my eye where very elegant, with good toplines and a real ease of movement like their sire. Of course there were one or two that were a little plain and uninteresting but on the whole I liked what I saw a lot, and definatly did not notice a tendancy to smallness which was a rumour I had heard before coming to germany.

                    In my opinion , this only serves to solidify the aforementioned opinion of most breeders in Holstein. These Diarado foals are all a bit "normal" . I didn't see one that wowed me and most appear to me not as good as their mothers.

                    Now we wait to see what they do as adults.

                      I posed what I thought was a good question. "Did anybody even look at the pedigree " ? It's the same as me coming on here saying I bred my Cassini II / Lavaletto / Acord II mare to a stallion by Corrado / Lavaletto / Acord II. This is lunacy.

                      Her foal is not only triple Capitol , double Contender and double Corrado in the first 4 generations , it also has 10 million crosses to Ramzes and 5 to Corde la bryere a little ways back . This baby is severely inbred and I feel sorry for it.
                      FWIW, Bayhawk, I have absolutely no problem with your delivery. I far prefer a straight shooter who speaks honestly than someone who tries to make me feel good, even if the truth hurts.

                      If you give credit to your mentors in Holstein *and* enjoy their company, where's the harm in that? Much of the tradition of horsemanship, including breeding, is oral. Someone has to preserve that oral tradition. Sitting down and discussing breeding with breeders in Holstein is no different than doing the same with a Kentucky hardboot. Yet somehow on this board I think the latter would be more accepted than the former. More's the pity.

                      Agreed. Too much inbreeding and totally unnecessary considering what is available in Holstein today.

                          I was very happy with diarado semen. It is all about the mares and the combination that I had turned out very well. Here are a couple of our links. We had another beautiful colt but he had to be put down due to a broken leg. It was horrible. We tried to breed back to our mare with another dose of Diarado but it didnt work. It was a beautiful line breed out of a Contender Cor de La Bryere cross. Now the mare is in foal to Levisonn. Well here ar esome photos and above all I think the temperment is great

                                I 'm sorry you lost your foal but I must challenge your statement about the "beautiful line breed to Contender".

                                This is not beautiful breeding. It is not at all desirable to have Contender twice in the pedigree.

                                    I think you'll find Diarado has been competing this season and doing very well indeed with some super impressive scores in young horse classes

                                      We have a 2010 Diarado filly. She will be an outstanding professionals horse. With scope, speed, a brain, step and agility. This one will be staying in our breeding program when ready, but will be in the jumper ring to prove this line within the next three years. I expect her in the young jumpers to do extremely well. She was bred for in upstate NY, and I found her actually looking for Chesapeake offspring. Her markings are unique, with a cascading dark bay to sorrel tail, four white stockings, and incredible conformation.

                                      We are looking forward to her future.

                                      She was produced by Saddle Brook Farms in Staatsburg, NY.

                                        • I am hosting a Hanoverian inspection on the 12th, and have a Diarado filly coming out of Pauleah, a very high scoring mare by Papparazzo. Can hardly wait to see her.
