This 2011 Stallion Information is being presented to you as an aid in choosing a stallion. When choosing a stallion it is not just important to use the best-quality stallions but it is even more important to make the correct combinations. The ANZFHS and KFPS strive to make as many breeding data on its stallions available as possible.
What are important factors in making a decision as to which stallion you will breed your mare?
One of the choices you have to make is between selecting an approved studbook stallion or a foalbook stallion with a breeding permit.
An approved studbook stallion has been through a rigorous selection process, consisting of 4 steps:
Progeny of a studbook stallion and studbook mare are admitted to the studbook as adults if they pass the selection process at a keuring. Progeny of a studbook stallion and a Bbook I mare will be eligible for the Bbook I register. For all rules see article about books and registers under menu item "breeding rules".
Note: A studbook stallion is recognisable by a 3 digit number after the name, eg. Jasper 366, Beart 411. The name and sequence number is given to them by the studbook once they approved for a license.
For a foalbook stallion the be issued with a breeding permit, the following conditions have to be met:
The breeding permit is limited to 10 or 20 mares, and has to be renewed every year. The stallion has to be presented at the keuring in ANZ.
Depending on the status of the mare, the resulting foal will be eligible for Bbook I or Bbook II. See the article about books and registers in the menu item "breeding rules". If you breed with a foalbook stallion without a permit the resulting foal that can only be admitted to the Bbook II. DNA testing is required for this type of breeding at the cost of the owner. It needs two generations to breed back to Bbook I.
The factors in a making a decision about which stallion to use are:
The stallions are listed in two groups:
