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.

  • What stallion to pick - Please help

    Hi all

    I am trying to find a stallion for my Zweibrucker mare. She is by Casi (Calvin)on the stallion line and Furier/Furioso 11 on the mother line. SHe's a little small (15'3) and is a little hot, but is a fabulous jumper with a huge heart. I want to replicate her just in a bigger form. I've been recommended to Limbus. She's been bred previousy to Ariadus and Linaro (both produced lovely babies), but I'm considering a different stallion. I'd prefer fresh, but would be open to frozen suggestions.

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    As a sidenote, I do like Ironman and see he has very good input from people on the board. ANy thoughts on the combination with my mare? She's also a grey with very good confirmation. Also, I know it's late in the season for breeding and choosing a stallion, but I keep changing my mind and I've only got a few more days to select as she's probably going to be ready by the weekend to breed. She just gave birth 10 days back so we couldn't do it sooner

      I would also look into the jumper stallions at Rainbow Equus (as I said elsewhere, I particularly love Landkoenig) and Silver Creek. Edgar (Rainbow Equus) and Barb (Silver Creek) could give you good advice.

        My friend's mare just had a foal by him -- I am dying to see it but she is out of town so I am waiting until she gets back.

        But she has told me on several occasions how great it was to work with his owner, Nancy and how accomodating she is. So I think that would be a great SO to work with late in the breeding season.

              Give a look to Cascani. He is a great cross for a hotter mare...and you appear to be breeding for the AHHA by the previous stallion choices. I have sold two of his foals already this year. His offspring are easy to break and have great jumping capacity as proven by the video links here.

                Never too late for Ironman

                Late? It's only July...ask Nancy and she'll tell you that we've had great August and September babies...Ironrule is a late August I think. Ironman will definetly put on height and add his great temperment to the mix.

                    Ironman is a super stallion with many, many get on the ground as proof of his ability as a sire. His son Ironrule was Res Ch Nationally in Hunter Breeding as a 3 yr old. Both stallions are wonderful.

                    Nancy Maloney's reputation as a stallion owner is IMPECCABLE! She will go out of her way to be extremely helpful, very knowledgeable and she keeps her word, and contracts. Excellent horseman to work with.

                    Go with Ironman or Ironrule, either is a fabulous choice!

                        What about Cortilo - one of Anke Magnussen's stallions? He has size, temperment, fabulous jumper and old Holsteiner blood. He's by Constant, who was also the sire of Chin Chin - one of the hottest sires in Europe right now. Google Royal Oaks Farms in Thousand Oaks CA

                            With that Caletto II sitting so close in her pedigree, I would put her to a Capitol son. You can't beat the Capitol-Caletto II nick for producing world-class showjumpers. And the Capitol should mellow out the heat and add some size.

                            Her size is probably due at least in part to the Roman in Casi's pedigree... problem is that Roman is inconsistent in the production of size - some are small, some are big, so it's a bit of a crap shoot. I think I would shoot for an average-producing size stallion (nothing too big, too small, too heavy, too light) and hope for the best. Although the size of her Ariadus and Linaro offspring should give you some insight into what size she is throwing.

                            What's also striking in her pedigree to me is that Furioso sitting so close. Perhaps this is a bit of a jumble of ideas, but here goes... Voltaire is touted as the best Furioso jumping son. One of the hotter nicks right now in Europe is Capitol on Nimmerdor blood. And Voltaire nicks well with Nimmerdor blood. If your mare tends to be more Voltaire-like over fences (very careful), I think I'd seriously take a look at a stallion with Capitol and Nimmerdor blood. There are some good ones to choose from, with both fresh and frozen options.

                            Best of luck!

                              Hi all

                              Reopening this thread as I'm looking for another stallion for my mare. Since this post she's had 2 lovely babies by Lankonig. Latest one just 10 days old. I would post pics if I could figure out how

                              I'd like to breed her again. She's getting up there in age - 18 this year, but has taken really well ( both times on first attempt with Landkonig) so I'm considering Good quality frozen also. Doesn't really matter what registry. However since she has the Cord blood, I'm thinking a Capitol son possibly with some Nimmerdor mixed in. Any suggestions? Shes a little hot so trying to stay away from firecracker daddies. I really want a proven stallion that throws great amateur babies.

                              Thanks for advice. I did look at Balou (realize he's not Capitol) but am not sure if baby would be too hot. Any thoughts would be welcome. Thanks

                                We have few stallions that could be interesting. We have fresh for both Imothep (Indoctro) and Dakota (Casall), and frozen for Zilverstar VDL (Cardento). None are hot, but all have plenty of blood. You can go to our site and find more information on all three including others we have listed.

                                Cheers

                                  I just learned today that Cielo B has an offspring that won the 5 year old Young Jumper class at Ledges this past week. Since we lost Cielo in 2010, he's only available frozen, but it is very good quality.

                                  For fresh, please take a look at Valentino (Darco x Feo) and Cartier R (Cassini I x Acorado) - both stallions are approved GOV and other registries.

                                  If you are feeling "daring" - I have a fantastic Chin Chin x Carthago x Major de la Cour stallion as well as a Quaprice de Bois Margot x Dollar de la Pierre x Cumano. Not yet approved, but lots of Jump

                                  Good luck with your search.

                                    We bred to Amazing and are expecting our foal in a month or so. His semen quality was great and caught our mare on the first try, even when she was trying hard to make things difficult. The bonus was Ahna was great to work with, which is a must for me. Good luck
