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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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.

Quaterback offspring with belly spots! More than two out there?

  • Quaterback offspring with belly spots! More than two out there?

    Does Quaterback himself have one?

    I have now seen two Quaterback offspring with belly spots. I love belly spots! Four of my horses have them, and I really wish the whole herd did, too!

    The first Quaterback that I have seen is Quaterback x Idocus, and he is very flashy. He has 4 whites - the fronts are white into the knees and one hind is white into the hock. He has a big belly spot.

    Here is a video second one that I have seen - at the Elite Foal and Broodmare Auction. The belly spot is locted below the girth area and more between the front legs.

    #211 - Quintus - Quaterback x De Niro x Prince Orac xx.

    Are there more Quaterback's with belly spots, or is this it? Wondering if this is coming from his bloodlines, or perhaps the dams?

      I have a Wolkentanz I with a belly spot. Very fancy boy who earned his name Wowdacious. Out of a coal black mare with almost no white.

        Our colt from this year does. It's small, about two inches or so and it's very splashy. He also has three high stockings, over knees and hocks, a big wide blaze and a splash on the front of his hock on his solid leg. Interestingly, his dam has two high stockings and a blaze but when bred to solid stallions, produced basically no white at all. Then when bred to Quaterback, it sure came out.

          I would like you to know that I have fallen in love with this colt via the internet. His name is GREAT also

            My Sir Rocco (Sir Bedo/Florestan) has a big belly spot and a lots of white hairs on his left side just under the saddle pad area.

            Here you can see it when he was a foal

            And here you can see the belly spot and the white hairs under the saddle pad - just behind the riders leg

I am hoping aside from the knee action and movement that I get some bling!! (ok... first healthy foal on the ground.. then bling!). Please Please Please!

                Anyone know what the dams of these belly spot foals look like?

                My guess is Quaterback is Splash, based on the look of his hind leg white. Likely Sabino as well, based on his face white. The combination, especially when combined with a mare who is also one or both of those, can easily lead to the greater expression or one or the other of those - belly white.

                Just had to add - in searching for more/better pictures of him, I stumbled across this comment and thought it was quite funny!

                Experienced horsemen and horsewoman pointed out that his walk was "only average" (he got a 7). Well, Jesus splashed when he walked on water too.

                  OMG, that IS too funny! He is a rather God-like stallion, isn't he? Or, is that a pun on belly spots and white?

                  hiddenacresmi - is your QB foal coming 2009, or 2010? How many of those 4 black mares did you breed to him? What are their bloodlines?


                  • Original Poster

                    Here are the QB 2009 foals from the auction. Interestingly, most of the dams have minimal white. It does not appear that any of the dams have belly spots. So, hiddenacresmi, you might be in luck of getting some white from your minimal white mares!

                    Most have video, several only have pics. Click on the little video camera icono on the right side for video:

                      The dam of Quelle Bonne has the same name and nearly identical pedigree to my Hanoverian mare, Shakira. I guess the Verband does not require that names be unique?

                      Anyway, very nice collection of foals.

                        Hiddenacres, I am crossing my fingers for bling for you! I bet you will forsure get it with the His Highness mare as her daddy certainly is known for throwing blingy offspring too!

                        You can see in this pic, the belly spot. It is quite small, but is there nonetheless. I am still in awe of how much QB improved on our mare, typewise, movement wise and conformation wise. Amazing.


                        And the splash on the front of his hock:

                        He also seems to have an abnormally light flaxen tail, and the mane, where it is newly grown in, is also very light, almost white. I wonder if that will stay?

                            Did you watch the videos of some of those foals? Hubba, hubba! Wha-hooga!

                            I am really liking QB more and more! I think he would cross VERY well with your mare, but it depends on what your goals are. I think crossing her with the husband you chose this year will definately give you a foal with >lots< of pizzaz and oompf, and you have a VERY good chance of getting a belly spot! Alexandro P will also give you more oompf. Not sure about the belly spot with him. He really is something though, isn't he? QB would add alot to your mare, but maybe not the action I think you might be looking for? I'd probably want to buy the foal, however!

                            Actually, I am thinking that I might want to try QB on two mares next year: the bay mare that had the first foal last year (the no-name filly), and also the chestnut 8 yr old ster with big blaze, minimal white on legs (and belly spot!) (how she ended up with so little white considering her father is unfortunate) who is a maiden, but was once pregnant with twins. I am thinking I would breed early Spring. I really liked having those Feb, Mar, April, May foals last year! Hard to believe that the oldest, Miss No-Name (she really needs a proper name!), is already 1 year 6 months already!

                                What a wonderful collection of Quaterback foals!! I loved my Quaterback filly more than any other and still regret having sold her at 10 days!! maybe just maybe I should try again. Mine had so much bling and could really move. But more than anything, she was the sweetest foal I have ever had in over 30 years of breeding. QB does a great job!

                                  I thought the foal, Quelle Bonne, looked more like a Sandro Hit foal than a Quaterback foal!! What do you think??? I'm going by the number of Sandro Hit foals I have had recently compared to the Quaterback I had in 2008.
