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.

    QH sales catalog & N/H (HYPP) horses.

    I just got a sales catalog and am surprised about a few things in it.

    Realize that I'm new to QHs and if the answers are obvious, forgive me.

    In it, some N/H broodmares were repeatedly bred to N/H stallion?

    Why keep a horse whole who is N/H and then why stand them at stud? People really book mares to N/H horses?

    HYPP sounds pretty bad. I wouldn't want to chance it.

    Again, I'm new to QHs and I don't understand the thinking behind this. Please explain, thanks.

    OOOYYYY Ok, In the QH and Paint horse industry Impressive bred horses still dominate the Halter horse show ring so that is why you still see so many N/H horses still being bred is because they win. As a lover of the breed(s) I don't agree with that thinking because I feel it compromises the intergrity of the breed as whole and with genetic testing available now there really is no need to continue to breed N/H horses. So IMO don't go there...... That being said my mare is Impressive bred and she is N/N, she is the most beautiful looking level headed, sure footed, beautiful moving horse I have ever had the pleasure of owning.

      Everyone is so ethical, in their own eyes, until tried.
      Easy to talk on a high horse when it is not you who has to make the decisions.

      If as a breeder you have an N/H horse that is in your eyes perfect otherwise, there are some that will excuse themselves from a slip in breeder ethics for the love of that horse's almost perfectness.

      Sorry, ethics, like being pregnant, you either are or are not.

      Anyone breeding any other than N/N is flat unethical in any book.

        This.


        What's really sad is that you don't need a HYPP positive (N/H or H/H) horse to do well in halter. Our stallion is a 2 time APHA Reserve World Champion, 1 time APHA World Champion, and is the #7 leading point earning stallion in the APHA and he doesn't have an ounce of Impressive blood in him. People just need to breed good horses and raise and train them right.

        ETA: I just wanted to add that I am a fan of Impressive bred horses that are HYPP N/N. There are some people who will mark a horse down if they have any Impressive blood, regardless of whether or not they have HYPP. I show in the over fences classes with a halter/Impressive bred gelding that doesn't have much performance blood in him, but he has the best mind and tries harder than any horse I know and because of that he does very well despite his beefy size

          Didn't AQHA change a rule so that horses that tested HYPP H/H and N/H were not registerable? Or am I thinking of something else entirely?

            My mare is actually smaller (15h 1017lb) even though her sire was a pretty big boy(he was a Overohunter). Her Dam was bred by the Simmelinks that bred Barlink Macho Man and they used primarily Leo useing bred horses in there breeding program.
            Works for me as I prefer a 15h horse, but same great mind and try, very willing and versatlile.

              From the rulebook:

              Effective with foals born on or after January 1, 2007, all descendants of the stallion Impressive, AQHA registration number 0767246, shall be required to be parentage verified and HYPP tested, subject to the conditions in (c)(2) above. Any foal testing homozygous positive for HYPP (H/H) will not be eligible for registration with AQHA.

                X2.

                there are plenty of N/N studs who have done very, very well in Halter (A Classical Mister is one). There must be a market for the N/H horses though, or people would quit breeding them.

                    Aren't they planning on phasing out N/H registration in the future as well? I don't remember the specifics, but I thought that was the case.

                      I thought so, about 2012 or13 or so, but have not heard anything else about that for a year now.
                      May not have been implemented.
                      To deny registration to any offspring from two duly registered parents is a legal nightmare, many hoops to jump thru to do it right.
                      There is right now a lawsuit filed against the no clone registrations.

                      Look at breeding with the splash gene and deafness.
                      Sure, some say a deaf horse is still ok, but why breed ANY kind of unsoundness?
                      Why bred parrot mouth, sure, you can feed the horse all it's life and a few great race horses were parrot mouth, but why not do as breeders should do, bred the best to the best, not compromise?
                      There are many horses without genetic faults, we don't need any one special line being bred from those that have faults.
                      We gamble every time we breed, lets stack the odds in the offspring's favor.

                      Then those are more complicated questions than just saying "do what is right", because there are also the rights of the breeders to consider, even if they are rationally wrong.
                      That is why the lawsuits, to prove who is right and up to now, the AQHA has lost against the rights of owners.
                      Remember Malvin Hatley white rule, that the AQHA lost at a great financial cost to them?

                        If anyone has ever watched a horse go through the seizures, there wouldn't be any question.

                        I watched a woman who adopted a horse from a rescue told by the rescue she could put the horse down. They also didn't want to take the horse back because of the ongoing costs associated with care.

                        The issue with HYPP could have been settled years ago. It really boiled down to money. Some not wanting to take the financial loss.


                        There must be a market for the N/H horses though
                        The only market should be meat.
                        The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.

                          Thanks for explaining, all.

                          What are some of the characteristics (temperament & appearance) of Impressive line horses, if you would, please?

                            I already went over my mares temperament but here is what she looks like and she does have the Impressive "look"....but like I said she is not a great big horse, and I would say the majority of Impressive bred horses are.

                              Gorgeous horse RRD!

                              My Impressive bred N/N gelding has the best personality and temperment of any horse I have ever come across. He is the definition of an all arounder. He learns easily and is up for everything.

                              He is heavily halter bred, which I hate for him. I really think people need to stop breeding for freakish size because now at 8 years old, he is built downhill and is super bulky which keeps him from being very athletic. Luckily he doesn't seem to know this about himself and tries his heart out anyway

                              Here are some pics of him:

                                  I use to run the other way from the Impressive horses ..but I will admit one of the nicest outside mares we bred was line-bred Impressive. A daughter of Coosa, her foals have been great riders as well as being pretty. She is N/N.

                                  I know there are people who are comfortable with N/H ..but I don't think it's worth the risk. Even if they don't have symptons, it's just a time bomb waiting to go off.

                                  I would love to see more judges reward 'normal' horses in halter... after all, it's suppose to define the breed.

                                    I too get annoyed when model classes are supposed to be judged based on the best representation of the breed characteristics, and these hunks with teacup feet and so much muscle they can barely get out of their own way are the ones who place. The QH originated as an athletic working breed...those horses aren't good for anything except to look at (and I don't even think they're good for that! Give me a well built, athletic horse any day!)

                                    [No offense to those who have the halter bred horses, I have seen some that I do like, but I don't find them to be a great representation of the QH breed for which it was originally intended...an athletic worker. Model classes should look for that, not mass muscle and tiny feet.]

                                      Unfortunately, I think there is just too much specialization in several events ... going to the 'extreme' has ruined many gene pools.

                                      I know the judges can only judge what is in the class ...but I think if more would take a stand against some of the excessive examples, it would help ... instead of making another class like 'performance halter' ...
