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!

  • Irish stallion for this mare?

    I am considering breeding my TB mare to an ID (the foal is for me personally) I would like to add some height and substance but dont want to create a dauchson she is 15'3 and 8 3/4 cannon size. I ride casually and also do lower level stuff.
    I read good things on here about Rhyds Sea Quest adding size to TB mares. Is this thought still true? Is there any other stallions that do?

    Thanks
    I really like Rhyds Sea Quest

    He looks to be producing really nice foals and I'm a fan of that family. His full brother in Ireland Sir Rivie is a Grade A Showjumper and a real lovely athletic sort. Friends of ours have had foals by Sir Rivie and they've just been really really nice so I do really like that family and what it produces.

        Is this her first foal, as I personally try to avoid too big with a smallish mare and 1st foal. I would suggest looking at Bridon Belfrey - her tends to add height. On my website you can see my pure bred colt by him. I bred my TB mare to him this year as I am so pleased with what he added www.benmarfarm.com

        You might also look at Cradillo - hes doing Grand Prix and has some nice offspring on the ground. Because hes doing so well, his stud fee will be increasing next year, so might be a good bargain to boot this year.

        I also love my Dandelion Diamond Rebel IDSH, but at 17 hh he may be larger than you want (he does tend to throw his size). My yearling is out of a 15.2-15.3 mare (not her first foal) He was 14.3 at 1 year

          I have seen Rhyd's Sea Quest many times. He is a very nice looking stallion. He is not a bulky as many of them, but they say he is 17h. He is a very big 17h! He is very pretty and have a very pretty face, not the typical 'Irish' face. If you like him, I would contact the stallion owner and ask what size foals he usually throws. Some stallions throw small foals that grow big, some throw big that grow small, some throw small that grow small, some throw big that grow big. If your mare is a maiden, you don't want to breed her to a big 17h stallion that throws big foals for her first foal.

            Thanks all
            I will get ahold of the stallion owners to find out about foal size. I love both dandelion diamond rebel and rhyds sea quest. I havent commited in my mind to breeding her. As much as I would love to get a foal from her( shes been one of my favorite mares)...I am just not sure the babe will be what I want in the size department. Ive been waffling on breeding her for a few years...but seeing Rhyds SQ today ....Crikey! hes fantastic looking.
            I have a purebred Glenlara filly that is 2. I dont plan on breeding her for several years and seriously thought of using Cradilo on her when I do.. I hope he continues to do well. I think they will compliment each other nicely (my filly is a natural born jumper)

            Dana, I just took a look at your website again...cant wait to see your Gatsby/Laurel foal. That cross is something I will be interested in seeing. Very interested.
            In the meantime did you consider your foal out of Conor to be a big foal when born?
            THx again to all

              Thanks, send a few breeding jingles, Laurel didn't catch 1st time, so we look for our black dot Friday. The Conor foal was wide - the shoulders were tough to pass. She was very bruised from that foaling. Hence my hesitation for a maiden. But I am sure pleased with the result and hope to repeat it at some point. Here he is trying out his legs last year http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y27...s/PIC_1037.jpg

                I really like Moorpark Image babies. He adds bone, but isn't massive enough to make them unathletic. His babies are in the 16.1-16.3 hand range (or are looking to mature at that height), so he does sire a bit larger than himself. They seem to be good movers too. One of his sons out of a TB mare is getting started under saddle at the barn, and he has big gaits with a lot of spring, but not a ton of knee action. http://www.abbeymoorfarm.com/Site/Stallion.html

                I also like Touch of the Blues. His foals are really athletic and they seem to be taller than your mare for the most part (he's 16.3) http://www.manufortifarms.com/stalliontotb.htm

                Corcullen is another one that sires athletic foals. He is very big though (17 hands), so if she's a maiden mare, he may or may not work out. His babies are lovely, and it's a shame the progeny page has them all in wonky phases. His son, Abbeyleix Brian Boru, was gorgeous. http://www.bullhillfarm.com/stallion...len_index.html

                  Cradilo is a big guy, if you are worried about size. Awesome boy, but big.

                  I am in absolute loff with my colt by Its The Luck Of The Irish - very sweet and docile. Nice jumper lines too!

                      Another one to have a look at is Steeped in Luck. He is a beautiful horse, lovely temperament, competing in dressage right now - and the foals I have seen out of Thoroughbred mares have been lovely.

                        I was told he retired from breeding outside mares? Oh well, this is good news for him!!

                        Well, I have a fondness for O'leary's Irish Diamond. Tiki has 2 outstanding fillies from him, and I have 2 with those lines and love them to death. He has proven himself in sport, but also his offspring - which is a huge bonus for an ID stud.

                        My gelding is what I would call sheer power. I've never ridden anything quite like him, he is incredibly light and rides VERY uphill and really uses his hind end. I have several I'm riding right now, and when I get on him - I can't quite explain the feeling other than I know I have a TON of horse under me. This is my 4 y/o gelding (pictures and video on here) http://s264.photobucket.com/albums/i...ham/?start=all

                        Our filly is a yearling a much more modern but she has the same power, that hind end and jump. She LOVES to jump, and goes out of her way to jump the XC jumps in her field all the time. It's funny I watch her and my other yearling run around and call her our Lexus. http://s264.photobucket.com/albums/i...awn/?start=all the most recent pictures are at the top, so you can see how she is growing into herself already.
