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!

  • Blue Hors Romanov, anyone?

    Does anyone know what type of mare Romanov does best with, size of foals, what traits that he consistantly passes? Thanks, Peg

    Hoping someone in hte know would elaborate

    I am looking at this stallion as well. I acutally prefer Rubin Royal but Romanov "sounds" like he may be the better producer... as I was told Romanov throws a longer leg and better hind leg than Rubin Royal. Just hard to overlook the shoulder on Rubin!!

      I'm curious to hear any insights also. It would seem that Romanov has a "nick" with Donnerhall mares. Many of his licensed stallion and award-winning mare offspring are from this match. Romanov is very tall though. I wonder if he's throwing this height consistently. I'm also curious if he's throwing his nice neck, strong loin, long legs, and "rounder" gaits. He seems highly trainable (doing Grand Prix at 8-9 years) but also pretty hot. Rubin seems hot and often tight too. I'm not complaining. I like sane but hot horses--just an observation.

        Well, in a more recent thread, Kareen answered my unspoken question about Romanov.... Would he be good with my Fabuleux filly and I guess the answer is yes. It's difficult for me to choose a stallion for a maiden because of my own insecurities! My instincts pointed to Romanov and another R stallion, but the former was my first choice. Thanks, Kareen! Peg

          I am trying to find where Kareem posted about Romanov... I too have him at the top of my list.

              Donna Belcher's new SPS Fabriano mare out of Manfred Kregel's stem to be more precise you are right
              Yes I do love him. The yearling filly we have by him out of a Warkant-Hohenstein dam is looking very promising and we are expecting another on behalf of a client out of a Sandro Hit-Davignon-Werther dam that should make a really good match.
              You can see video of Romanov at this year's stallion show on our site linked below (the one where he is doing 40some singles in a row with Rudolf Zeilinger aboard. Quite the eye candy I really had a blast and the show was worth visiting for me.

                  I must say that Zeilinger rides Romanov masterfully. I wish he were competing him
                  I have had one Romanov foal - and believe she is exceptional in her movement and temperament and beauty. She has gone to an excellent home, and I have high hopes for her.
                  Here she is at "days old":

                    I've decided to breed my maiden Bruderherz (Bolero)/ Akzent II mare to Romanov. Here's a thread you might be interested in -- a few different breeders weigh in on Romanov:

                      My mare Diva (bought from our own Kareen ) had an exceptional Romanov filly. She is owned by a friend and I covet her in a very big way. I am anxiously waiting for a full sibling in March. The semen is excellent. Romanov added tremandously to the mare's movement. The temperament is wonderful. Legs are longer. See more of her here:

                              You're welcome! I have to say that, as impressive as Romanov is, and considering everything he's got going for him, it was really Kathy (SunnyDays) and MaryLou's (Home Again Farm's) fillies that pushed me over the edge and convinced me to use this stallion. What amazing fillies!

                                Yes, thank you Kendra for your posts. Your comment about Absatz tugged at my challenged brain and I remembered that Absatz is doubled in Fabuleux and Facette, my filly, also has Absatz in the damline, although not as recent. Mary Lou and Kathy, those are wonderful fillies and sure set the mark to attain. I remember seeing the photos last spring, but with so many stallions out there it is tough to stay focused! Peg

                                    FWIW, Dr. Corey Miller of Equine Medical Center of Ocala had a gorgeous Romanov colt a few years ago. IIRC, he was a premium Oldenburg foal and may have also been named a stallion prospect. I believe he showed with some success as a foal in both DSHB and hunter breeding shows.
