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!

  • Who is your favorite Florestan line stallion?

    I keep finding myself drawn to sons and grandsons of Florestan. There are so many of them to choose! Who are your favorites and why? What do they bring to the table? At the moment I am pretty enamored with Fuerst Heinrich sons, Fuerst Romancier and Fuerstenball. I have also bred to Freestyle in the past and am very pleased with the result. What about Farewell I and III?

      HAve had 2 Fidertanz/De Niro foals and they are super. LOVE Fuerstenball and want to breed to him in the near future.
      Really like For Compliment and might give him a try as well.

        I bred my Dutch keur mare to Florencio this weekend... and can't WAIT to find out if she's in foal!

        But I also really like the Fidertanzes I've seen. Very consistent types and movers.

          Florencio is my favorite forsure! But I also really like Furst Romancier..have seen in the flesh and have bred to him (with no luck) as well as For Compliment.

          I also really like Florestan himself and have thought often of trying him.

                  I don't know anyone that has been disappointed with their Fidertanz foals. From what I have heard, they are very correct, good looking and elastic good movers.

                  I am also curious to see how Furstenball produces. I really liked him from the moment I saw him being lunged at his licensing (watched it live on the Internet).

                  I am curious about the Fuerst Romancier foals as I have heard from a few folks who aren't hugely impressed with theirs - including very experienced breeders who know what their mares usually produce. He may turn out to be one of those stallions who produces really nice riding horses, but is not known as a foal-maker.

                  Florencio I have heard can be inconsistent - some are really nice, some not so much, and size can be an issue (he often downsizes). The really nice ones can be spectacular, though.

                    What about Fuerst Grandios? I'd love to hear some insight on him. He looks really nice, I like seeing the old blood on the dam side, and just doesn't seem to get the attention that the stallions with the big marketing presence that Schockemoehle, Medingen, Bockmann, and Kathmann do.

                    Also important in my mind is a performer like Fuerstenreich.

                      Florestan?

                      Seriously, Fidertanz seems to be producing very well...

                      I personally do not like Florencio. Although my sample is small, the ones I have seen all had a wonky hind end... Hard to describe, but a real turn off for me...

                        I'm hoping that with my mare I've loaded the dice in my favor. She's a keur mare to begin with, comes from a damline that throws huge, is very large herself, and has an awesome hindend, thanks to her Holsteiner damline. These horses have mothers, as they say...

                          I adore the F line and have in the pasture/under saddle right now:

                          Fidertanz/Harvard
                          Fidertanz/Rubinstein
                          Florencio/Lady's King
                          Florencio/Feiner Stern
                          Fuerstenball/Harvard
                          Fuerst Romancier/Lamentos colt (Outrageous mover)

                          Love all the above mentioned stallions but they are VERY different producers.

                          For those on Facebook that are interested in seeing Fuerstenball foals, Fuerstenball has his own page. Just type in "Furstenball" without the "e". Talk about a stallion that is "stamping" his foals! Pretty amazing. Fuerstenball filly we have this year is the easiest foal we have ever had...and probably the prettiest! Very elegant and long legged. Lovely type.

                          I would also love to try Florett As if I could get my hands on some frozen. Also will give Floriscount a try next year. So many nice F-line stallions!

                            I just googled Florett As--- what do you know of his dam line? The damsire name is familiar, I just cant place it this early in the morning. Nice stallion and a direct son--very cool. Let us know if you find any frozen to import.

                                      I am a big fan of Floriscount (Florencio-Donnerhall-Waldorf) . Super young stallion. His first crop arrived this year. All with beautiful heads, uphill movement....really nice.
                                      I have a colt born in April that is really special and I bred the mare (Dormello-Silvio) back for next year. I think enough of him to have bred Statesmans dam "Weissendra" for 2011.

                                        Really nice cross with the "D" line.
                                        So, for 2011 in Germany I have two Floriscounts, Weissendra (Donnerschwee-Titus), Frieda (Dormello-Silvio) , Remember (Depardieu-LeMatin) to Statesman and my three year old (Dimaggio-Santander) to Quaterback.
