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!

      It might be instructive to look at the stallion Faram who lost his approval.

        I, of course, went through all the TB stallions first and was a bit suprised that African Drums was a very close relative of my mare Heartbreaking whom I use to breed sporthorses. They share the same 5th dam and considering he was bred in 1960, as close as your gonna get!

          Which stallions have the most ideal scores on the linear score sheet?

            can you only click on the x-rays if they are not so good?

            how does one best read the conformation /characterstiic chart?

              I'd like the x-ray section explained too.

              I don't think you can see them, I think the numbers indicate the grading.

                it seems not all stallions have x-rays scores or esle they only show the ones that deviate from the norm? This is all very interesting! Thanks for the link.

                  Look at the linear scores on Rosseau.

                  There is also a linear score sheet on Rohdiamont.

                      We thought the comments on Idocus were that he is rather average (or just slightly above average... i.e. sufficient). Overall we were rather surprised by the comments on many of the stallions… (and not so surprised by some ). At one point we were looking for a baseline of comparison, but there are no write ups of the truly great stallions like Contender. Of the stallions we’ve looked at, Lingh has far the most complementary comments about him.

                        >>>>>>>>>>>>>Idocus serviced all sorts of mares: American Thoroughbreds, KWPN mares and old-fashioned Hannoverian mares. The uniformity, especially of the forehand and the manner of movement, is very remarkable. Idocus clearly puts his stamp on his offspring.<<<<<<<<<<<<<

                        This is a quote.

                        If anyone sees anything on any stallion as complimentary as this, I'd like to see it.

                        Meanwhile, I will look up Lingh.

                          I think we are looking at different things. My comments were grounded in the following:


                          Idocus
                          "Conformation
                          Idocus is a more than sufficiently developed, sufficient riding type stallion in more than sufficient rectangular model. He has a well-formed poll-neck formation. The base is well developed with a correct stance. The foreleg should be a little longer."


                          Lingh
                          "Conformation description 2005
                          Lingh is a generously developed riding type stallion. The head is expressive. The neck has good length and shape. The shoulder is well developed. The croup has good length and is well muscled. The stance of the foreleg is correct. The hindleg is somewhat sickle hocked. The bone of the legs has quality."


                          Some choose words rather haphazardly… others take considerable care. We are of the latter group… and noted the superlatives for Lingh… and the absence of as many superlatives for Idocus. I am not suggesting that we favor one stallion over the other. In fact, I would guess that Idocus has had many more foals and to date much bigger impact on breeding in this country. With respect to the material you quoted above, without question, it is valuable for breeders to consider what a stallion produces.

                            Yes, we are talking about stallions, not just riding horses.

                            I'm not buying the stallion, I am looking for what might compliment my mares.

                            If you read the KWPN stallion and foal reports, you get used to micro criticism.

                            That's why the sentences I quoted re Idocus rather stood out for me.

                                No Rampal.

                                Here is a quote re Zeoliet who stood in VT for a few years with Scot Tolman.

                                >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Though it varies a little, the total collection has more than sufficient movement. In a number of cases the hindleg should be brought underneath a little more and a few times it would be nice to have more scope. However, there were also foals with excellent movement that showed much balance, scope and regularity. All foals were attractive and liked to show off.

                                In short: generously developed, more than sufficient type foals with a well-developed foundation. Their movement ranges from more than sufficient to good.
                                Shown: 53 foals out of 250 breedings.

                                Offspring 1989 (3-yr olds)
                                Zeoliet will remain approved on the basis of his 3-year old offspring evaluation.

                                Term of approval 1993
                                The stallion Zeoliet will be approved for a term of 3 years. Because of the positive influence that Zeoliet seems to have on the breeding program it was decided to approve the stallion for a term of 3 years. His latest index scores leave him with a score of 127 (84%) for jumping and an amazing 160 (77%) for dressage.

                                Term of approval 1998
                                Zeoliet is again approved for 3 years.

                                Offspring 1998
                                Zeoliet is permanently approved on the basis of his 11-year old offspring.<<<<<<<<<<<<<

                                The Dutch system is seeking to cull stallions who don't pass the muster. That's why they look again and again at the stallion's offspring once he has approval which in itself is an achievement in the KWPN system.

                                  Why "no Rampal?" Isn't he Olympic Rampal? I realize he is not exactly the stallion on everyone’s Top Ten list these days … but I always thought there was so much to love about him. And, in person he struck me as such a gentleman… with such a kind eye.

                                    Rampal received the crown predicate in 1999.

                                    He was licensed by the NA/WPN with a 93AA which is very high.

                                    Since he was licensed in NA, the KWPN would not have the same kind of records they do on stallions who stood in Holland.

                                      I was looking at the scores for sickle hocks on Contender, Contango and his son Citango.

                                      These guys are really high on the dressage indexes.

                                      I know Jazz is also sickle hocked.

                                      So how much should we care about sickle hocks?

                                      Better to have too much angle than too straight in the hind legs?
