Information

Please be aware that it is now compulsory to test all breeding stock for Hydrocephalus and dwarfism. All approved stallions test results are now up on the KFPS site and can be viewed here “http://english.kfps.nl/Portals/0/2017/Lijst%20stamboekhengsten%20dragerschap_EN.pdf”
All Australian breeding permit stallions are also now tested and results are available on the ANZFHS website and can be viewed here (can we get this up on the page please so I can include a link)

The new KFPS rules are now also making it complusory for all mares being used for breeding and for all ster mares to be tested PRIOR to the 2018 breeding season, so prior to 1st January 2018. All mares who achieve ster status at a keuring and are not already tested will have DNA samples taken and be tested as part of the upgrade process, and all mares foaling from now on if not already tested will have to submit DNA samples for testing as part of the foal registration process. If both of the mares parents are already tested as negative the KFPS and ANZFHS will accept that is meaning the mare is also negative.

As Australia is one of the few countries still breeding B-book 2 foals it is also compulsory to have non breeding permit stallions tested. All current non permit stallions being used for breeding must have their DNA test results submitted to the ANZFHS by no later than 31st Dec 2017 and resultant foals born after 1st Jan 2018 by stallions who are untested will have to have the stallions DNA test done as part of the foals registration process.

DNA testing forms are available on the ANZFHS website here https://anzfhs.org.au/download/anzfhs_forms/DNA%20Request%20vs2.pdf due to the large number of horses being tested it can take some months for the results to come back so its important that you start this process ASAP in order to have the results prior to 31st Dec 2017.
