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.

            Brutust, you are asking an important question but I think everyone who has responded to you so far has misunderstood you.

            By "mare families" I assume you mean the damline or motherline and not stallions that appear in the bottom half of a pedigree. You mean a dam and her mother and her mother and her mother, etc and are focusing solely on the females in the bottom part of the pedigree.

            The Holsteiners and Trakehners make this question easy to answer but the Hanoverians do not organize their mare families into "stamms" or motherlines like the Holsteiner and Trakehner Verbands do, respectively.

            Your best bet is to hope that some of the Hanoverian breeders on this board, inside and outside of Germany, see your post and reply.

                Here is my mare's dam line

                Thanks Tom for pointing that out...as I was thinking the same thing! My mare's family I find to be quite interesting, so far. I believe that there is still some missing information, as we are still searching for info. on foal that she had while in Germany.


                Her sister, Necco seems to be associated with Stal Hendrix (NL) as they sold Vertigo to U.S.A. in 2007.

                Her brother, Noble I was originally being ridden by Jonathon Whitaker (I think that's the correct person) of Canada, but is now being ridden by Michel Hendrix - Stal Hendrix (NL).

                I also found it interesting where the name Landadel would be used again for a stallion (not to be confused with THE Landadel - yet they are both by Landgraf I).

                  Yeah, I wish they had a # to coincide with each family. I bought a book in Germany about the best Hanoverian mare families, but haven't read it yet. The German version of course is huge and the english, about 15 pages lol.

                  I have taken note of a few families that strike my fancy, via looking for stallions.

                  The family of SPS Carina. She is a full sister to the stallion Compliment. She has produced a # of lovely horses including the dam of Hampton (His Highness), Red Chili, a spectacular mare herself. She has also produced a super Liscenced son this year by Londonderry and another mare who is competing successfully in NA at FEI level by Reggazoni. I am sure there is more to be said of this mare line.... Carina has won best mare family at big shows in Germany.

                  From the German site and translated roughly to english:

                  Carina's full brother was a Compliment Topdressurpferdevererber in Hanover's breeding area. Furthermore, the Stallions Einstand I and II (v. insight), Germany (v. Grannus) internat. SPR erf. with Markus Beerbaum and Slibovitz (v. Servus) internat. erf. dressage horse with Dr. Uwe Schulten-Baumer

                  Carina class itself was won on the horse show in Bruchhausen - Vilsen, imagine the St.Pr.St. Red Chili (v.Rotspon), their first daughter, the show's winner and is also in the best series of the show in family Bruchhausen - Vilsen, the biggest horse show in Hanover's breeding area.

                  Carina 2007, the winner of the family Herwart review of the ceiling. The valuable trophy secured Red Chili and her two sisters Faconable and Red Hot Chili.

                  Another family that I have recently found fascinating is that of Pr St
                  Gänseliesel. She is the full sister to the dam of Brentano II and is herself the dam of Beltain, the sire of the fantastic Belissimo M. She is also the full sister of Garibaldi 1 and II and the granddam of Wolkenstein 1 and II and the international dressage star Little Big Man.
                  Here is an article about the owner of SPS Ganseliesel:


                  I am sure I will think of more soon.

                    hey...Donella, you need to get in line for that mare family (Carina/Red Chili) . I've been drooling over them for years! I'm still waiting for a filly to be born. *sigh*

                      Hehe, I imagine there is a lineup for a filly from that family. Hmm..ok, can you put me on the list for a filly from the Red Chili filly that you are gonna get?

                        If we were talking Oldenburg mares, I'd include the Weissena line. Since there is quite a bit of crossover between WB registries, I'll add my 2 cents and mention this wonderful mare family anyway!


                        • #13
                          Yeah, if we are speaking of other registries, I am fond of the Rumirell line (Oldenburg), the mare herself is the dam to five liscened sons from Rhodiamont: Romanov, Rubin Royal, Rubin Action , Rumicello and Rubino Vincento. Wow!

                          The Holstein damline that gave Contendro. I don't know much about Holstein breeding but I believe this is 104 A. The mare Ofarim is the dam of two liscenced sons, Caballo and Conteur, the popular Celle state stud stallion. She also produced the mare Bravo, who is the dam of Contendro 1 and II as well as the famous showjumper Caretano Z.

                          Anyways, not Hanoverian, but stallions from these fantastic families are frequently used in Hanover, especially RR, Romanov and Contendro 1 especially.

                            On the Paardenfokken website there is a button for Moederlijn (motherline) once you have pulled up a pedigree, so you can click away to you heart content...that is how I got the links to the stallions I listed above - Wolkenstein, Rubenstein (not a H, I know) & Abundance. It makes it really easy to trace licensed stallions (they're always in BOLD), there are levels of competition listed also & registry of origin...so quite a bit of information.

                            Londonderry has a bit of interesting (low # of generations of mares listed but several licensed stallions) http://www.paardenfokken.nl/family.php?horseid=24887 . Liberty Gold is not in the database - and I am bummed as I wanted to do some research on him...

                            This is the new stallion at Celle - Hohenzollern's motherline http://www.paardenfokken.nl/family.php?horseid=353190

                            His Highness - http://www.paardenfokken.nl/family.php?horseid=35257

                              Just thought I would mention that Rumirell descends from Rudilore II, a State Premium Elite mare by Chronos out of Rudilore I by Condor. Rudilore II was Harli Seifert's foundation mare, and produced two State Premium daughters by eventing legend Volturno who founded mini-dynasties of their own - SPS Elite Voila and SPS Ruling Chica. Approved stallions Gio Granno (by Grannus), Conterno Grande (by Contender), Couleur Rubin (by Cordalme), and Don Chico (by Donnerhall) descend from Voila, and approved stallions Tantris (Tramdeuter), Rubin Royal, Romanov, Rubin Action, Rumicell, and Rubino Vincento (all by Rohdiamant) descend from Ruling Chica. Some of these stallions also have their own approved sons, and many States Premium mares also descend from Voila and Ruling Chica.

                              Another thing - the Tantris mentioned above is the same Tantris here in the U.S. I suspect he is one of those underutilized stallions we sometimes talk about, so those wanting to breed to a U.S. based stallion with a strong motherline might want to put him on their list. We are very grateful to have him in the Oldenburg stallion service auction - http://oldenburghorse.auctionanything.com !

                                Hanover stamm 439 is excellent.


                                My filly's dam is 3/4 sister to the late stallion Rubiano.
                                My filly's grand dam Dorfblume, is 3/4 sister to the stallion Del Piero and full sister to the approved Hanoverian stallions Don Paulo and Di Versace.

                                And, the grand dam Dorfblume is due to foal a Rousseau babe in a few weeks. (i think it will be for sale) I'm looking forward to seeing that baby.

                                    Donella, I just sold an SPS Compliment Picard mare, in the JBP as well. She is super nice, and so nice to have him as a damsire.
                                    I have always loved Compliment, and when I wanted to import his semen, I had no interest---- NADA. Now he is dead.
                                    Crazy eh?
                                    Oh well, I have For Compliment in my tank:-)

                                      Going way back, Wolgarune by Wohler, founded a dynasty for the Klausing family. www.hof-klausing.de , click on Breeding. She had a number of daugheters, but in particular:

                                      Her granddaughter Geranie, by Grenadier out of Arlette by Arsenik, is the granddam to 3 recent successful young stallions, Barclay (Adelheidsdorf 2008 winner), Fuerst Rosseau (Adelheidsdorf 2008 3rd place), and Scolari (dressage winner in his 70 day test, 140 pts). http://www.hanoverian-stallions-pape...D_5514662.html

                                      Geranie is the granddam of Ramina K (by Rohdiamant out of Avignon by Akzent II), reserve champion 3 year old at Bundeschampionate and top seller at a Verden elite auction to Sissy Max-Therur (name since changed to Romantik)http://victoria.achleiten.at/cms/fro...at=19&idart=42 . Avignon was also dam to 2 approved stallions Belford and Ramazotti.

                                      Geranie is the great-granddam of Rhodes Scholar and RS's half-sister by Walt Disney, my beloved SPA Wardenia, who lost her first foal this year and then 4 months later slipped running in the pasture and fractured her hock and had to be put down. Its especially hard, having had my own little part of this dynasty, not having any offspring to carry on with. I'd love to acquire another broodmare of this line, but I imagine they are in high demand given the recent success.

                                        Oh God Lea Ann...I didn't know. I adored that mare, as you know. I am so upset you lost her. I am so sorry.
