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!

  • Acorado (and his sons)

    I am infatuated with this stallion and would love to get some of his semen or have a mare by him. I been told his semen is not available, so please tell me about his sons. I am a bit overwhelmed with the choices; As di Villagana, Acodetto, Albatros, Acorino, and Adorado to name just a few....How is one to ever choose? Which are your favorites and why? I haven't chosen a mare yet, so all suggestions are welcome!! Are there any sons approved KWPN? Thank you!

    I've got some Adorado semen. I've been told to use it on a big mare. I've probably use it with my big Rio Grande girl.

    Adorado is quite a refining stallion. I saw a three year old son of his at the 2009 BWP stallion inspections in Belgium. Really WOW! He ended up Reserve Champion at the inspection.

    BWP stallions can produce KWPN Register A foals.

      herr bahlman, who bred acorado, said his best son was autobahn. semen is no longer sold from either unfortunately. i have a colt and filly both by autobahn and another on the way from my indoctro x calido mare. acodetto has had something of a resurgance. as di is not a son, but a paternal half brother.

      acorado brings modernisation (more than refinement), rideability, scope and beautiful type. there can be topline concerns, and mares for him should not have acord ii also in the pedigree.

      it is really good blood to work with.

        I like Adorado. He is G-line on the dam side. This probably contributed to his strong back.

          My friend has a stallion out of the same mareline as Acodetto (actually their dams are half sisters, out of the same dam) and enough can't be said about him. Lovely type, very modern but not light in bone, very sound, sane and always healthy. Not to mention he really has endless scope-- the other day he schooled 1.50m easily. Just thought I'd chime in

            Isn't there an Acorado stallion, approved AHHA in W Va owned by Theresa Blatt? Can't recall his name, very attractive stallion.

                i have a really nice colt from acclaim from this year, from our noble champion mare. no decent pics, but he's a really impressive looking fellow. very manageable in disposition, tall and with lots of bone, and super gaits, when he can be encouraged to use them!

                i started acclaim for terri and facilitated the sale to kc, who, i believe is taking things very slowly with him, which is great for his long term future. his mother was a 1.4m horse who did spruce etc and i believe her rider posts here sometimes.

                acorado made some great sons!

                  I believe there is an Acorado II. His semen can still be purchased. I have not heard of his success. Acolord is out there also, Acorado/Lord/Ronald Stamm 104a. Full sister just had an approved stallion herself.

                    if i'm not mistaken i think doreen was bred to acord ii what.... 14, 16 times? there are many full siblings to acorado. he was the only one that was his red-bay colour, and also the only one to become quite as special in breeding as he posthumously is.

                      I would only like to mention ABKE (Acorado I - Contender - Raphael). One of his weanlings out of a Lemon Park xx Hanoverian mare just won Grand Champion at the Canadian Royal Winter Fair! I wrote a news blurb about it on my Judy's News page. You also can see some of his foals on the "New Foals" page http://yancey-farms.com
                      And each year, I see a handful of Abke's competing at HITS, both in hunter and the jumper rings. (He jumps a 4'9" fence like a hunter)
                      He might be the type you are looking for. You can see video at http://www.sosath.com/cms/index.php?...at=10&idart=14

                        Abke

                        I second Abke. I have admired him for years and have just purchased two doses for my daughter's super fancy small junior hunter mare. We watched a mare by Acorado go in a George Morris clinic a few years back and were blown away by her!

                          Casals.

                          The name of the stallion out of the Acorado daughter is Casals. Casall/Acorado/Lord stamm 104a. Acorado mare is full sister to Acolord. Acolord stands at Mass Hell.

                            We are very happy to have purchased with a friend the last two doses of Acodetto in the country. While we do not intend to use it this year (maybe next), we have heard nothing but good things about his few progeny in North America and are eagerly awaiting our friend's foal in 2011.

                            We have kept Abke on the back burner as a hunter sire choice in future. We are also eager to hear about the Acclaim foals. Much thought was put into producing him and we hope that it has been a successful endeavor for Terri and his current owners.

                            Acorado blood is something that we would be pleased to have in our herd.

                                  I have 3 from the breeder of Acorado and they are all out of HSP Acorado daughters.

                                  Canturo / Acorado
                                  Classe / Acorado
                                  Carlos / Acorado

                                  Acodetto is making top daughters as well.

                                      Good to hear about Acodetto semen.
                                      Do you know what/if any other Maas Hell stallions are also going to become available?

                                        Acclaim and other Stall Hell stallions

                                        In reply to Ponygirl, there are many Stall Hell stallions available buth through them directly and through agents here and in Europe. Calido I for example freezes pretty well and we have had good success. That is excellent old blood and throws a beautiful foal (see Calido I-Cassini II-Lavall colt) at http://www.facebook.com/album.php?ai...6&l=fb18f6555b

                                        There are also some Acclaims shown there. Too early to tell about his production but I am very excited about what he has put on the five mares I bred him to last year. Still rough in their coats (it is cold in Half Moon Bay) but the ones from Sonnengirl, Kyra, and Classic are all as good as anything they have thrown with other horses. Of course a mother would say that
