Breeding permit renewals

The ANZFHS has received a confirmation from the KFPS that the breeding permits for all foalbook stallions with a permit for last season have been renewed. The current number of stallion in Australia with a permit is nine, and one stallion has a permit in New Zealand. The stallions are listed on this site under the “stallions” menu item.

Members that are planning now or in the longer term to apply for a permit for a stallion that does not currently have a permit are strongly advised to contact the ANZFHS to become familiar with the conditions and procedures to obtain a permit. If members plan to import a foalbook stallion with the purpose of standing the stallion at stud, also need to contact the ANZFHS first. Obtaining a breeding permit is far from an “automatic” exercise. Semen testing, skeletal X-raying, DNA testing and a evidence of performance is required. The stallion has to be a ster stallion, have been through 2 rounds of judging in the stallion keuring and successfully completed an IBOP test or equivalent (ABFP or central testing).
