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.

Oldenburg approved stallion suggestions for an Arabian Mare?

  • Oldenburg approved stallion suggestions for an Arabian Mare?

    We have a 3 year old purebred filly by our Straight Egyptian stallion Akdar Brins out of a high % Crabbet mare Nevada Jayne. She was the Arabian Pacific Slope Champion Mare Open SHIH as a yearling. She has continued to show well and this past week was approved main mare book Oldenburg. We had thought to breed her for a sport pony but I have been looking at Oldenburg approved stallions as well.

    I have a few requirements from a stallion (pony of full sized):

    Oldenburg approved
    Arabian Sport Horse Nationals Payback (both of our boys are in the program, plus we show Arabian shows as well as open).
    A stallion that can put a longer neck on a mare
    Also, more uphill movment and build
    And, if a larger stallion, puts good size on foals, even from smaller mares

    Black would be a nice bonus as our girl is homozygous.

    So, I would like to hear from some on stallions that have crossed well on Arabian mares?

    I'm not against breeding for a sport pony as our girl is vertically challenged
    (14.2 ish when she's done, I think). However, I don't really want to go with a Welsh pony.

    Thank you for any suggestions!

        HAHA! You beat me to it.....Rosenthal. He fits every requirement listed! Right down to color and SHN Payback status. PLUS -- Angela is great to work with!

        (BTW - good to see you here, Stacey!)

        I have a 4-yr-old Rosenthal out of a purebred Arab mare who is also GOV MMB. Mare is 15h -- this was her first foal. He sticks at 16.1 and trainer thinks he will go to 16.2 or perhaps 16.3.

        Gorgeous horse, beautifully shaped neck of just the right length...incredibly balanced and really built uphill -- my FEI trainer LOVES his canter and says that it will serve him well when he is an upper level horse. He is always complimentary of how smart and easy this horse is -- and how quickly he gets everything. Very balanced and sensitive....He is so tuned in when you ride him.....just a joy. I can't wait to get on him every day.

        My neighbor -- who is an event rider -- hacked him for me when I was out of town recently, and also just LOVES him. Says its the biggest, most comfortable canter he has ever ridden.

        So -- yes -- I think Rosenthal is definitely the way to go for you!

        (Check out the Oldenburg web site for the report on the West Coast Oldenburg show. Reserve mature horse was a lovely young mare RosEbony, by Rosenthal out of an Arab mare. Judges apparently were quite taken with her, despite her young age (three, I am thinking?) asked about the dam line and were a bit surprised to hear that she was out of a PB arab. LOVELY mare!

            Frohwind. He's a proven cross, having produced many premium foals out of Arab mares. I have one, my friend has two. Mine is 4 now and has already earned his Legion of Merit (++)and is just 6 points from his Legion of Supreme Honor (+/), showing in open, recognized shows and Arab shows. He's had training level scores as high as 73% at recognized shows, with me riding him.

            Frohwind also produces a horse with an incredible work ethic. I have two other Frohwind offspring, out of a half Arab mare I owned, so not registerable Half Arab, but one is schooling third level and the other, at 4, was just high score mare at her ISR/Old inspection and was the Mare Performance Test champion with a premium score of 72.

            I know Frohwind was a payback stallion at one point - the question is, if they are all grandfathered into the program. Mine is, but not sure about the details for ones born later.

            Here's video of the half Arab, Faxxsimile++, at his latest show:

              Tall Oaks -- any photos of that baby? Would love to see!! Love Donarweiss' breeding.

              And Stacey -- I believe that the Freestyle breeding is still available on SHN Payback for $750.
              Definitely might want to look into him!

                Thank you for all the replies! I wasn't sure what I would get as I haven't been on here really. I think this is about my 4th (?) post!

                Do any of you know anything about Don De Marco? He's young. Hasn't done his inspection yet. He will be going to his test next year, I believe. He would be an excellent cross with our filly, based on his photos and video.

                    Sorry we don't have the photos back from the photographer yet!! Think the owner is from around your area, AmeriBrit Farm. Do you know them??

                      I would not think that Don De Marco would be a good choice for an Arabian mare. He carries a lot of heavy, older type blood, and there would be too much disparity in type between mare and stallion. You might get a foal with a big, old fashioned Donnerhall head on an Arab body, or a heavy, old type warmblood body on fine boned Arabian legs.

                      I agree with the Rosenthal suggestion - he has been doing a great job with Arabian mares, as has De Laurentis. I also believe that Ironman is a very good cross with Arabian mares - he carries Anglo-Arbian blood through his sire Inschallah, so is a nice match type-wise.

                        When you're breeding two completely different breeds, it can be a gamble, more so than normal. So I would definitely look to stallions who have produced well when crossed with your breed (Arabian.)

                        I would not use an unproven stallion on any of my mares - I'm just one of 'those people.' But even less so on an Arabian. There are several warmblood stallions who have consistently produced nice horses out of Arabians - I would try and look at as many of those crosses as I possibly could and then make up my mind based on the individual strengths/weaknesses of my own mare.

                        If you want, you can look up the show results for these Frohwind offspring in the AHA database: Faxxsimile++, Faralyn+++//, Fergus+++, Future Image++, SD Dartanian+++// (sp?)...and there are more I can't recall just now

                          I agree that you want to use a stallion that has produced SEVERAL Arabian crosses. You have already been given two very good suggestions in Frohwind and Rosenthal. I'd also add to the list Mannhattan, though you might not get a really tall horse from that cross, you'd definitely get a nice one!

                            I agree with needing to see proven crosses. That's part of why I came here as I knew that many of you have more knowledge of the breedings. My trainer and I both really liked Don De Marco, however, I understand the not knowing what he will produce in general, then the older/heavier blood.

                            I'm really liking Rosenthal and love the 1/2 Arabians that were on the website. And, black, the nice bonus! I haven't looked much at Frohwind yet. As for the other stallion, I would really like a boy that can throw size. Our girl is small and unless we go sport pony, we'll need more size. I know this is a silly question, we've only bred Arabian and Anglo, so this will be my first venture into warmblood, is GOV approved for Oldenburg NA? I couldn't find anything on the website.

                                    Don Principe has had a lovely filly this year from a pure Arab mare. I do have a photo, but can only email it. His TB blood worked well with the Arab lines.
                                    He also had another filly out of a WB/Arab cross mare that went Premium GOV in PA.

                                      I think this is the list of stallions on the ASHN Payback program.. Rosenthal is on it for 2009..so is Redwine ( anyone know of arab/redwine crosses? Bet that would be cool)
