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!

    Bachus (Adrianna) , with all due respect , I must ask you how would you know the answers to your own questions.

    I could be mistaken but I believe you don't own a horse , you don't ride horses and you have never bred a horse. Am I correct ?

      I have worked for Jos Lansink, Meredith Michaels Beerbaum and now for Nisse Lüneburg. I live in Holstein for a year. I come here for 9 years, I write articles for Dutch, German, Australian and magazines from the USA. I interview riders like Franke Sloothaak, Pius Schwizer, Ludo Philippaerts, Jos Lansink. Ask questions to Laura O'Connor, Alberto Michan, Laura Kraut and Nick Skelton (at the Hamburger Derby). I have interviewed the breeders from Casall, Cassini, Contender, Burggraaf, Verdi, Numero Uno, Boritas/Limoncello, Con Caletto/Cardento and so many more over the years. I brush Contender almost weekly, I see and work with offspring from almost every Holsteiner stallion daily...

      So tell me what do I not know?

      Do I have to add that I helped with several books from Asmussen Verlag about Holsteiner stallions over the years? The Corde book etc?

      Don't give me such a personal attack if you have no clue what I am doing. I had my first article in Pferd und Sport two months ago.

        Again , I only asked you questions , I did not attack you.

        I also see that you did not answer any of my questions.

        "Brushing Contender" , "writing articles" , "interviewing people" "mucking stalls and grooming" does not mean you know anything about breeding. How can you ? You haven't done it.

        You may have inflated the German teams soccer ball. You may have interviewed the coach. You may have washed the teams uniform and you may have written an article about the match.......doesn't mean you know how to play soccer.

        My point remains for folks trying to garner information in a chat room. The source should always be considered.

            I didn't say they were pointless. I said to garner information on how a particular stallion breeds , one must consult with the breeders who have used said stallion. Only they know what was brought by him to the table in conjunction with the mother.

            I have never used the stallion myself. If I were to use said stallion , I wouldn't be looking for the information here from people who know next to nothing about said stallion.

              Mon Dieu ! Quel débat pour une simple question !

              I was only asking for advice. If you don't have any, that is ok. I will continue to find information on my own... Thanks anyway.

                How interesting... I did ride actually but not anymore since I enjoy it more to work at other ways with horses. Mocking out stables? Who says I am doing that?
                Breeding; yes I have chosen stallions for a couple of years for 5 mares, some of those products are jumping at 1.50 level. So you can throw that statement away.
                Since when does owning a horse has anything to do with knowledge about how a horse produces mare or stallion?
                Plus I wanted the name of the mother so I had a point to start with. My articles mostly cover 4 generations of information.

                Again you know nothing about me and it is interesting how you can judge people who you don't know.

                I am still thinking about the point that I have no knowledge, why would the Verband ask me to write now and then articles if I had no clue were I am talking about? Maybe they should ask you?

                  So you still don't own a horse , you still have never bred a horse and you have done little to no riding.

                  You brush horses , you "work" with horses and you write articles.

                  I'm glad you write articles but writing articles does not make you know anything about breeding.

                      My last reply to you Reece is again that judging a person you don't know is quite low . Today I read something that was really good; A tiger doesn't lose sleep over the opinion of sheep (Zag)

                      Limoncello is a interesting stallion, being halfbrother to Lasino who produced 3 Olympic horses and more international sporthorses. With Lorentin as sire of Limoncello you can except good movement. Lorentin his strenght is mostly in dressage but his offspring can make a good jump too.

                        Adrianna , I will tell you again that I wasn't judging or attacking you. I merely asked you questions DIRECTLY relating to your knowledge concerning breeding.

                        I think you are doing good things in Holstein in order for you to be able to write some of the nice articles you wrote that I have read. My point still remains however.....you can't really comment on breeding when you don't breed. that's all I was saying.

                        Peace out Adrianna.......

                          Bayhawk, attacking the credentials of someone does what, exactly, make you look more knowledgeable?

                          (psssst, it sort of makes you look like an ass)

                          Additionally, you WERE attacking:
                          So you still don't own a horse , you still have never bred a horse and you have done little to no riding.

                          You brush horses , you "work" with horses and you write articles.

                          You are insinuating that someone's lack of riding, horse ownership or ownership of breeding horses precludes them from having any experience worthy of sharing. You are insulting her by saying she "brushes" horses and writing articles--as though it should be something that precludes her from having an opinion, and even go so far as saying such.
                          Don't pull the "innocent question-asker" when you get nailed for being exactly what you are being--an ass.

                            Sorry, I accidently hit the wrong thumb for the above post. Instead I'd like to give it a standing ovation.

                            And utter a sigh.

                            I watched the video and the stallion looks very nice.

                              I had you on my ignore list for a long time, Bayhawk, and this exchange reminds me why-- you are so presumptuous, so arrogant, so judgmental and so sure of your judgments no matter how groundless they may be. There are many avenues to learning about anything-- including breeding. If a person is capable of writing good articles on a subject, s/he is obviously qualified to comment regardless of how s/he has acquired the requisite knowledge.

                              I am reminded, for example, of a TB broodmare man who studied the bloodlines, parents, conformation, and careers of foals he delivered for decades before he ventured into breeding himself. His wife threatened divorce when he finally took the plunge, mortgaging their house to buy and breed a specific mare to a stallion of bloodlines he'd chosen for her. The resulting foal (Hansel) made them multi-millionaires. Clearly this guy (Marvin Little) didn't need to be a breeder himself-- or own horses, or ride, or even read very well -- to learn a helluva lot worthy of respect. He learned what he needed to long before he bred, mostly by watching, listening, living with the horses, taking care of them, seeing generations of various families and developing an incredible eye for what was producing what. There are a lot of horse people out there with comparable knowledge and eye for horses who, for any number of reasons, never breed themselves. I for one, would like to hear their comments, just as I would Marvin's even before he bred, and find them every bit as valuable as yours-- if not more so.

                                    Though, I hardly recognized the writing, what with Stamm not being mentioned even once.

                                    Tedious.
