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.

    That has good frozen semen.

    I don't breed Trakehners, but I was under the impression that Hohenstein semen tends to be poor quality?

    I like Oskar II for a Trakehner stallion in the US, if I were breeding Trakehners, he would be very high up on the list.

        "Poor" is a generous description. It is DOA frozen and not hot fresh.

            The best way to give you good advice is to know something about your mare: bloodlines, qualities you want to solidify, and those you want to improve upon. Will dramatically improve your odds of finding a stallion that will produce what you want.

              Stolensilver may be able to tell you about Silvermoon as her PSG mare is in foal to him.

              I'm pretty sure they used chilled with her as there were problems on the first cycle when the shippers mucked up delivery and the semen was still good enough to have a go at inseminating her. She didin't take first time but that was down to the mare not ovulating when predicted. She took fine the second cycle


              • #8
                Silvermoon's frozen is very good according to SES

                I'd take a long hard look at Cadeau, EH King Arthur and EH Munchhausen. TSI carries them.

                Kostalany has foals on the ground in the US. I'm not sure who carries him.

                  Thanks Stoicfish for putting Grafenstolz forward. I'm not going to highjack the thread, but want to say a couple of things:

                  Whilst Grafenstolz has been an eventing World Champion (Le Lion d'Angers 2004) and regularly placed at 3* whilst covering up to 320 mares a year mostly with fresh semen, he is now concentrating on pure dressage. He left stud on the 30 August 2009 and went into training. Only 14 weeks later he performed his first ever PSG, and scored 69%, scoring a perfect 10 for the five loop canter serpentine (the one with the changes on the centre line) in the previous class.

                  In order to show the loyalty to my agents around the world that I get from my stallion owners, Exclusive Equines are not now and will not be in the furture, the agents for Graf in Australia and New Zealand. David Shoobridge of www.waterviewpark.com.au is, a very polite and professional man in New South Wales. Whilst the USA and Canada agent for Graf is Judy Yancey in Ocala, who earns huge respect from me (former pro rugby payer) in her ability to sink a pint of beer quicker than I can. A talented lady indeed!!!

                    I like Hohenstein a lot, but would then buy one or breed one of my mares in Germany to him. No way would I even consider his frozen!

                    I have really liked the trak blood I have used on my Han mares. Especially a Latimer out of my DOnnerhall mare.

                    I also have a Kaiserkult filly, just being started, in Germany. Dam A Langatas Express/Pik Bube. Her half brothers (Hohenstaufer I, II) both by Hohenstein, are HIGHLY sucessfull in sports. One is in Sweden at Jan Brinks (ridden by Minna). I have had people wanting to buy her just due to her breeding. But she is a keeper! cool and good mover.

                    My former mare by Don Crusador, had a very good Hofrat colt. Tall and leggy.

                    Other trakheners I would consider would be Connery and Munchauser. Had a stallion by Connery. Very elegant! Melissa here had a nice filly by Muenchauser

                    Yes yes yes, I am a Hanoverian breeder, just sometimes stepping out of the box, lol.

                      I have a mare I would love to use Kostolany for and another that might also work, but not as refined. Love that stallion! But, not breeding right now (I have to keep repeating that over and over as spring lurks around the corner, LOL).


                      • #12
                        I have a 09 Kostolany filly out of a mare by Schampus, I love her! She is gonna be fancy. Which is what I keep telling my self when I look at her covered in all that fuzzy hair and mud .

                        The trak stallions I'm interested in for the future are Kaiserkult, Grafenstolz, Symont and Silvermoon to name a few.

                        Does any body know where you can get KaiserKult frozen? I am also not sure if there is Symont frozen out there yet either or babies by him for that matter but I like him!

                        Walnut farm, do you have pictures you would be willing share of your Kaiserkult filly? I would love to see her!


                        • #13
                          lgd1 is right. I used Silvermoon last year. My mare is due mid May. Can't wait for the foal to arrive. I did use fresh chilled semen and the stud were very professional and easy to contact and the semen is excellent quality. For her first cycle my mare looked as if she was about to ovulate and then held on for another 3 days! Turned out she ovulates on giant sized follicles. Once we'd worked that out and got the insemination timing right she took straight away. Don't know anything about his frozen but I'd trust the stud to tell you the truth about it. They speak excellent English.

                          A Trak stallion that I really like is Axis. He's the son of Sixtus, an international showjumper and Axis was the champion jumper at his grading. However he's been trained as a dressage horse and is currently competing successfully at Grand Prix in Germany. He's also the sire of Hirtentanz who has just been approved by the Holsteiner verband, the first Trakehner to be approved since Donauwind sire of Olympic competitor Abdullah and that was over 40 years ago! IMO he's a real dual purpose sire with the ability to produce international quality jumpers and dressage horses.

                            I never hear anyone mention Glen Livit, but he is very nice. I boarded at the barn where he lives for a while, and he has just about the best temperament, and he's just all around lovely.


                            His foal was the top scoring ISR O-NA foal in 2008, and she is stunning.

                              I'm interested in Axis too. I haven't had any luck as far as locating frozen semen from him though. I have emailed Gestut Webelsgrund (where he stands) but did not hear back. Do you happen to know if frozen is available with anyone?

                                I'd try contacting his owner, Sian Prosser-Reade. She's really nice and very knowledgeable.

                                  Another Trak stallion I'd recommend is Le Rouge. I have a daughter from his first crop and she was highest rated 3yo dressage horse in the UK last year. She has the most wonderful temperament, ideal for upper level dressage in that she is very trainable and willing to please but she's also sensitive and her engine is constantly running. There is no lack of go with this lady! Yet she is sensible with it.

                                    What about the young stallion Imperio (2003 by Connery x Balfour xx)? He looks lovely in his pictures and video, but has anyone used him? I would think that many would be turned off by the 2.5K studfee on a unproven stallion...but what about in Germany?

                                      Punky, here is an video from last year of the Kaiserkult ; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNooPXx74O8

                                      Have one from Nov I just haven't finished it yet, lol

                                      I agree Imperio is interesting. He had only 2 foals from first foal crop, so it was perhaps a little difficult to see. However, I am sure he got something after his wins as a 4 and 5 year old. I just haven't see any. But a super riding stallion for sure! I just love him!

                                        I persueded my boss to buy an Axis filly who I showed very successfully and then persueded her to breed ehr to Connery, so we have the Connery x Axis foal due in April - that should be a corker!
