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.

  • Warmblood stallion suggestions

    Suggestions for warmblood stallion for my mare. She is 16.2, extremely athletic, I bred her to my TB who is 15.2 and she had a gorgeous, leggy, tall filly in 2009. 16.0 to 17 hands is fine, prefer jumper bloodlines. Stud fee $1000 or less LFG. She's got a great hind end, toes out slightly, but did not pass that on. I've browsed stallion auctions and I am uncertain about frozen semen, thoughts? Any stallions people really like? I like Disconto which is right down the road and I can get a breeding off the SHN auction last i checked, but I need to pay bills before bidding on a season and I am not planning to breed until April or May. I am in central VA and would like to stay close.

          The North American branch of the Selle Francais registry is defunct. You can still register with France however.

            When you say you want to stay close do you mean you want to live cover? That would make a difference since most stallions don't offer that. If your doing AI I like Cielo B, he won the jumping portion of the 70 day test by a huge margin and he's showing at WEF.

              Maybe someone with the Belguim warmblood registry can answer this but I think it agreed or worked something out to waive in or recognize the NASFA approval of mares ? (I did not think that was time limited....at least I hope not.)

                Equinox is certainly lovely!

                More information regarding the mare (or conformation photo) would be helpful, including her pedigree. There are a number of good stallions that meet your criteria, but matching your mare would be the first order of business. Do you want a proven producer or does it matter?

                  Have you considered Silvio? He's not approved, but is in Middleburg. I believe his AI fee is $1000 with a $200 booking fee. I believe he is also offered live cover and his fee is $1200. He is 17H, half brother to Shutterfly.

                  As long as your mare isn't a maiden she should be fine...he's rather well endowed according to my trainer. She has a 2 1/2 year old by him out of a TB mare and a 2010 foal on the way by him with her Trak/TB mare.

                    Scimitar

                    I am offering Scimitar this season at half price which is $750. Don't know if west PA is too far. This is a great deal. The website is www.enavantstud@yahoo.com

                      This first one is not a conformation shot, but it just shows how sweet she is with her first foal.

                      http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/p...id=65661158084

                      If these don't work let me know and I'll try to get them on here another way.

                      Anyhow, I want as little TB blood as possible since she is a TB, want something with strong jumper lines as I will be keeping this one for me.
                      She is very easy to breed live cover, I handle my stallion and I have my working students hold the mares. When she's in, she WANTS to be bred.
                      I don't want to have to ship semen across country, so mid atlantic region is best. I have a busy show and race season and it will be harder to coordinate shipped semen from a greater distance in my opinion and I am used to live cover where I send my mare off or breed them here to the farm stallions.
                      Equinox is lovely and I just love SFs.

                        Equinox is registered BWP. He is showing dressage now both for training reasons and to complete his stallion requirements. He has very nice gaits and gets lots of looks at dressage shows. Everyone comments how nice and pretty he is at shows and most people do not guess he is a stallion (he is very respectful and workmanlike). He gets 8's and 9's on his gaits even at big shows. He is more talented in jumping though and that is where he will end up in the end. He got a score of 87% for jumping at his stallion approval. He is very careful with lovely form and great scope. It will be exciting to see him jumping a course at a show! His mind is awesome, so easy. He has the engine and energy for a professional but really a nervous rider could get on too and he would be a gentlemen. He is just easy and fun to be around. Hope this helps!

                          Name is Mighty Spirit by Mighty Forum (GB) out of Succubus by Cozzene. Ok, once I decide on a stallion, I will want to get her approved with that registry so I can get the foal approved, right? I am a TB breeder, so this year I am delving into some WB's. I was given so generously a lovely older SF mare named Elley Bon (Geronimo D x Bonarose by Bonjour) to breed to my TB stallion since his oldest crop of 3 yr olds are soo lovely. The are calm and quite and athletic. Three are headed to the show ring and one owned by a client his going back to the racetrack. So I wanted to try him on a WB mare. She has her SF papers, is it possible to get this foal approved or does my stallion need some sort of approval? Now this is all hypothetical since I won't know what this foal looks like until next year and if it is a horrible mover I won't even try again let alone present it anywhere.

                            I am a little confused about whether you are talking about one mare or two mares. You mention a mare with SF papers, then you mention a mare by your TB stallion.

                            A mare with SF papers could theoretically be approved for breeding by several WB registries - Oldenburg and Belgian WB are two that come to mind. Once she is approved, her foals by stallions also approved by that registry would be eligible for registration with the registry.

                            The mare by the TB stallion would not be eligible for regular registration papers with most WB registries because the stallion was not approved for WB breeding. You could probably to get her approved into the lowest mare book of a WB registry, but she would not be eligible for a higher book with most of the mainstream registries. Even if she goes into the lowest book, her foal by approved WB stallions (approved by that registry) would be eligible for registration papers.

                            So the upshot is that if you want any kind of registration papers for the foal, you will need to get your mare inspected by a WB registry and then breed to a stallion approved by that registry.

                                You are not that far away if you would like to look at Argosy personally. There are several of his offspring (TBx's) her as well. Most breed to him for the h/j market. Jumping fools and very elegant as well.

                                Unfortunately, right now our website is down for reconstruction, updating.

                                  Nice mare and nice pedigree. From the photo, it looks like she could use a bit of improvement in her neck -- it looks a bit short without alot of shape. Could be the angle of the photo. You could use frozen and have it available whenever you need it instead of fresh that you must order when she is ready. In your area, there are certainly a number of stallions available. What about one of Talley's (Triad Hanoverians) in PA. I have a Corlando gelding coming 3 that is going to be magnificent and Corlando is available frozen (deceased) but sure had the jumping bloodlines. She also has Black Tie Affair who is siring nice foals. I would also be checking the stallion season auctions for a good deal and alot of choices. For jumping bloodlines, you would probably find the most with the Holsteiners, Dutch and Belgium.
                                  Good luck!

                                    Just to clarify if a mare was approved by the selle francais I am assuming she had some type of papers--and I thought the Belguim warmblood assoc was accepting the NASFA " refugees" so to speak and would not make you get the mare re-inspected but would accept the mare as approved for breeding w them because she was approved with the NASFA (which would save you a couple dollars in inspection fees if you found a stallion in that book you liked.)

                                    I think Partick Cleric is handling all the questions/paperwork for the SF in the USA.... patrick.clerin@haras-nationaux.fr so you might try him w your questions about a foal by xx out of your SF mare.(Maybe you can get cheval papers?)

                                    I think there was a SF stallion called fakir rouge in Vir that was bred for jump. ...Special Memories is approved as SF-factuer A and is in md. I am sure there are more I just cant think of them right now!
                                    Oh--Virgina tech has a SF stallion!

                                      Totally agree about the neck and she is not a flat kneed mover, but she is not a horrible one either. So definitely want more in the front end as I am happy with the hind end. This mare can jump!! I will look into the stallions you suggested. Have to miss most of the stallion season auctions since I need to pay off some vet bills, money won't be available for stud fees until this spring.

                                        Yes, the 2nd mare, Elley Bon, I listed is registered with NASFA and I have her registration booklet. She is 18 this year and I wll be breeding her to my TB Noles. So, if the foal is nice enough and especially if it is a filly, I was wondering if I would be able to present it to any warmblood registry because of her dam's registration? Thanks for the email, I will send one off and inquire.
                                        My TB mare, Mighty Spirit, is the one I am seeking a warmblood mate for. And I do love the SF's.
