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!

    They will probably start hitting the ground very soon. I am looking forward to seeing them, also. He is absolutely to die for in person. At the 70-day test in Schliekau, he was without question the stand-out of the group.

      My "trainer" (lol) when there, had a colt 2 weeks ago. I may be able to film him. Plan is for him to go to the auction in April. Anyway, he was very pleased with him. (he breeds mostly jumpers)

          At least in Oldenburg he seemed to be used a lot. A friend has one coming out of her Painters Row xx - Argentinus mare.

            I am thinking about him for my dutch mare... not this year but next.. maybe an ET.. but would have to see what he puts on the ground first. However type wise and pedigree wise he is perfect for her.

            Anyone know anything about his temperment?

              I was really impressed with his temperament at the 4 days I saw him at the testing.

              I like his type, not to big and cutie! not the biggest mover, but SUPER jumper!! (which is what he was bred for anyway!)

                It is my understanding that he was used a lot in Germany. This will be the first year his semen is available in the US.

                Thank you for all of the replies and I hope more news will come as the foals start arriving

                  I had heard that there are over 200 foals coming in 2009. I have no idea if that is an accurate number or not.

                        I spoke to a guy who claims to have had the second Diarado foal born and he said he was very pleased. Colt foal, not to big and very cute (as was just to be expected).

                          Rumors says that foals are a bit small.
                          Diarado will have about 1000 foals this year in different registries, Paul S. will have hundreds...
                          Only 80 will be Holsteiner.

                          Because of the huge number of foals, you can expect some great performers out of his first crop.

                          Diarado is a great advertisement to his sire; Diamant de Semilly.

                            Thanks everyone. I was hoping to see some foal pics by now. Interesting that some are said to be small. I know that I don't want a 17 hand and above horse. I guess what is small and what is large depends on the individuals perception? It is going to be very interesting to see how his offspring develop. If there are 1000 foals expected this year we will definitely get and idea of what type of mare is best to breed to him.

                              Usually when word is coming from breeders that the foals are 'small' - it's an indication that breeders will have to be aware of this and send good sized mares to this stallion to avoid vorrs.

                              I heard that the foals are small too. Small as in a small over all package. Not light boned per se - just a smaller horse all together.

                              I'd read this as meaning - the mares brought to him need to be of good size themselves. (16.2h range).

                              A good option for some larger mares out there.

                              I heard the the quality of the foals is very good.

                                I heard the same thing , that the foals are small but beautiful. Like mini versions of Diarado.
                                I love him but I think my mare may be too small for him !

                                  denise, I filmed a short bit of the Diarado/Contendro colt. I can e-mail it to you if interested.

                                    Linda - I would love to see the footage. One mare I am considering for him is my Contender mare. The breeding would be close to this foal with the Contendro Dam. I have heard exciting things about your stallions first foals. Congratulations
