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!

  • Wow! Just posted new video of Limoncello II...

    I just posted this new video clip of Limoncello II to Karen's website, and WOW. What a jump! I am really looking forward to meeting this boy in person some day.

    http://foxfirefarm.us/pages/foxfire_...oII.html#video

    Has anyone here heard anything about his offspring yet? What type of mares he would be best to cross to, etc?

    No idea but what a nice stallion!

    He reminds me of a coiled spring or a rubber ball when he is being ridden and jumped

    Very impressive and congrats to Karen on her acquisition of such a wonderful new stallion!

        Would he be ok to breed to if a mare has landgraf/ladykiller in 3rd gen -as I notice he has ladykiller 4 x in the 4th and 5th (but through three different sons.)
        Thanks

          I'm still drooling after seeing that free jump.

          I'd love to hear from some Holsteiner fans about types of mares that would be good for him (based on his pedigree, body type, etc).

          omare- Limoncello's stallion son, Le Toquet (listed last below) is out of a mare with landgraf/ladykiller...

          Here are some babies that I have found:

            he's a really ideal type from a top family and with all the 'bling' possibly needed for the various breeding objectives in north america.

            while i would not hesitate to use a mare with more ladykiller, what is notably absent from his pedigree from a holsteiner perspective is any cor de la bryere (there's just a single shot 5 gens back in loutano). just the single shot of capitol is also no problem for mares without too much more.

            he stands in a very nice, classical type and the athleticism is clear to see. usually one hears from germany about some weakness a stallion may have, but there has been nothing but positive about this fellow. the verband still have his half brother lasino to breed with and his full brother '1' is still over there somewhere too.

            this was a new spin on the video karen just put out...
            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vl8z-fQDtk

            the only thing wrong was 'one hundred and forty meters'. needless to say, karen has been teased. ;-)

              Thanks for the info ne1, just the type of info I was looking for.

              That's the same video clip that is embedded on his webpage - I didn't catch the meter thing though, those must be some big jumps! : )

                  How big is he?

                    he was 166cm (16.1 1/2) when measured as a 2yo. he's obviously bigger now, but in holstein heights live with horses for life once taken at the 2yo approvals.

                    i haven't seen him in the flesh that i recall, but karen says 16.2-16.3 now.

                        I respect your opinion and actually have taken your advice with my Holsteiner mare Hillary by Caesar out of a Le Santo mare. I have frozen Carpaccio waiting for her this spring through Karen. So, since frozen is always scarey and if I'm lucky and she's still going strong in 2011 (after happily, I hope getting infoal to Carpaccio, lol) what do you think of her with Lemoncello II? I sure like the idea of fresh and like working with Karen.

                            depending on the phenotype match, it looks good from a pedigree perspective!

                              Does anyone use the hypo mating tool on sport-horse-data.com? I usually use that or the paardenfokken.nl ones, because I find allbreeds to frequently have bad info.

                              Sorry to derail. Back to Limoncello...


                              Did he stand in Denmark for a period of time?

                                  The grandfather Loutano is inbred to Landgraf. He is Landgraf / Calypso/Landgraf . Then you have Latino and Lord and then another Landgraf from your mare.

                                  People who say they wouldn't hesitate to breed this way or that way don't have to raise , train and sell your horse either.Just my 2 cents......

                                    Does he improve loin connection ? Does he throw correct pasterns (lenght) ?

                                    My mare is Conquest x Corrado x Accord II. Would that be a good cross ?

                                      These answers can only come from the few breeders in Germany that used him. No one.... on any chatroom , can tell you if he would be a good cross for your mare or not. You must do your own research and come to your own conclusions.

                                        Could you tell something more about your mare? What is the name of her mother (researching her motherline can give information about what kind of blood fit's with a mareline)? How is her type? A chatroom can be helpful for getting information. An advise doesn't mean that somebody should follow that advise!
