I have a young stallion, born in Iceland, good pedigree and
120 in BLUP, BUT his mother has no DNA in Worldfengur. She is dead and has no
Iceland have done a great job in helping me, and their answer are:
“We here at Matís have been going over this case and we can see that most
likely is Þorvar (IS2016187745 Þorvar frá Arabæjarhjáleigu) son of Vök
(IS2009287249 Vök frá Efra-Seli) if we look at her parents DNA profile (Hnokki
frá Þúfu IS2003158162 and Villirós frá Feti IS1993286913). But it is very wake
because Vök frá Efra-Seli has only one offspring with DNA-profile. So the
conclusion is that the maternal bloodline of Þorvar can neither be
confirmed nor denied.”
FEIF rules says G
«All stallions presented for judgement must have proof of parentage either by
blood type or DNA analysis. All stallions presented for judgement and are born
from the year 2006 must have a proof of parentage by DNA analysis on both the
father and the mother.»
So the problem is mine, and I am not allowed to show him at a FEIF breeding show or use him. But I still think it’s pretty strange that a horse born in Iceland, and is one of the world purest breeds, is not qualified to a breeding show for Icelandic horses.
I have done some
resach in Worldfengur. Iceland have a lot of horses, and many of them have not a
DNA registerd in Worldfengur.
Horses born 2016, only 11,9 % has a DNA in Worldfengur.
Horses born 2013, only 25,3 % has a DNA in Worldfengur.
Horses born 2010, only 27,6 % has a DNA in Worldfengur.
It is even more interesting when I do a search for dead mares in Iceland. In 2009 when the mother of my horse were born, 37,1 % of the mares are dead. Mares born in Iceland 2010, 34,7 % are dead. I do think Iceland do have more young stallions without a DNA on his mother…..
In Norway, horses born in 2016: 94,6 %has a DNA in Worldfengur. In Sweden, horses born in 2016: 99,7 % has a DNA in Worldfengur.
Denmark 2016: only 9,6 % has a DNA in Worldfengur, for horses born in 2010: 10,5% has a DNA. Germany 2016: 21,8% has a DNA, for horses born in 2010: 28,8 % has a DNA.
I understand the
FEIF rules, but for horses born in Iceland is it a bit strange? And i think it
is surprising to se such low DNA numbers for some other country’s outside Iceland.
Þorvar var med på Hrimnir sitt unghestskue på Stall Myra lørdag 3.november. Han kom på en 2.plass i klassen 2-års hingst, med bedømmelsen 70,04 % i forhold til nytt system og karakteren 8,07 for eksteriør.
Mest positivt var at han tok det hele med stor ro, og viste sin aller største kvalitet: Et herlig lynne og gemytt .
