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.

  • Another bloodline question!

    I bought an AQHA gelding in May and after completing the ownership transfer, I got curious about his pedigree. I don't know much about AQHA bloodlines (or any bloodlines for that matter!) but I was told that the farm he came from was breeding barrel horses and I can see that he definitely has speed genes!! Dash for Cash was one of the names I recognized immediately. His breeder appears to be heavily involved in the racing industry from what I gather when I google her name. Can anyone tell me anything more about his bloodlines? I'm not sure of my plans for him yet (I come from a H/J background) but he's very smart and very level-headed which makes him a "catch" in my book, regardless of his papers.

    And here is a not so great cell phone pic of him from the day I bought him

    Hi.

    I count six Hall of Fame horses in your horse's pedigree, all of them racehorses.

    Rocket Wrangler
    Dash For Cash
    Easy Jet
    Jet Deck
    Top Deck
    Beduino (TB)

    Those horses are all pretty far back in his pedigree, though. His sire, Dashin Chico, had a short track career and a top speed index of 103.

    Dashin Hero never raced on the track, but horses from the Rocket Wrangler/Dash For Cash bloodlines are known for their kindness and are particular favorites of barrel racers. It's possible you could have a gymkhana winner on your hands.

    Or just a nice horse that you like a lot

      Nice!! I really like how he's bred ..and you're right he should have speed ...and if he has a good mind that is just the frosting on the cake

      So many times you hear 'on the papers' and it is a big pet peeve of mine ... but this guy has a lot of good horses back to back ... no holes in his bloodlines.

      Mostly running QH, but plenty of the great ones, Easy Jet, Go Man Go, Rocket Wrangler, Dash For Cash, etc. ... his dam like has some good foundation bloodlines with Joak and Billy Van ... I also like the TB breeding with Azure Te, Top Deck ...

        I think he has a nice mix of bloodlines for speed, performance and maybe even dressage.

        Enjoy...

          His owner had originally purchased his dam from the breeder but just before she shipped out, they realized she was in foal. So he got a two for one deal They told him the reason they were selling the mare was because she and the stallion kept throwing babies that were too quiet to suit them. So the man bought her and 3 other siblings of my horse. All of them were/are very sane, level-headed horses so it's funny to think they all have so much racing blood in them. I've known this horse since he was a foal and the man I purchased him from was a former trainer of mine for many years, so in the end, that means more to me than papers

          Very interesting to learn more about his roots though! Thanks for the info!

                Mine's grandpa is Dash for Cash. He has a cute jump and gets a piece of the hack too. Here he is with my trainer last spring:

                My farrier says the Dash for Cash's tend to have crooked legs though! Touch wood, mine is going fine, but moved down to 2'6" for me, at 15. Very kind horse for me now.

                  Nicely bred for a running horse.
                  Will be interesting to hear what you do with him.

                    If you look back through the pedigree, what you find is that Chick's Beduino , Dashin Linda, and Real Ease (3 of the 4 grandparents) are all 7/8 TB. Pal's Deck A Van is pretty much bred from Foundation QH lines, though she herself is 1/4 TB and traces back to Joe Hancock and others that had lots of TB blood in them also.

                    So...you pretty much have a sprinting-bred TB with a little bit of foundation QH lines thrown in...cool!

                    He's handsome, I like him.

                            Very cool! He's cute! I think my guy is going to have a jump on him too. I've only popped over some crossrails with him but he's got a serious motor! He hadn't been ridden in a year and a half when I bought him so we're taking it slow and going back to some basics. He just turned 9 but he's actually still fairly green - was started slow and late. Former owner gave me a photo from a fun/game show of him in a knock-down-and-out class sailing over 4ft like he's taking a stroll through the park So it will be very interesting to see what he can do!

                              Horrible bloodlines, ugly horse! That being said, if you need me to get rid of him for you, just let me know! : )

                              Congratulations! It looks like you got a good one! I hope you enjoy him!

                                Excellent running qh bloodlines. I like this in a qh. He should be very athletic. Most of the horses in his pedigree can be found in qh pedigree books.

                                        Just curious. How many horse owners buy a registered horse, in this case QH, without doing the research before you buy?

                                        I would have thought it would have been just one of the things someone would automatically do, like a pre-purchase exam.
                                        The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.
