Obligatory foal judging - a part of a breedsire's assessment

Foals by young breedsires are judged in their own heats at the many foal shows in the stallion's two first years of showing crop. When the bereding committee has seen enough offspring they produce a foal description of each young breedsire, thereby giving the breeders tha valuable knowledge collected all over the country - does the stallion breed true? Or does the quality vary too much?

Birkegaardens Tequila by Tailormade Lancelot was assessed with the heats of foals by stallions who had to produce foals for obligatory foal evaluation in the Northern region 2010.

A foal desription is the first impression of a breedsire's quality as a breed sire. Even though a a young stallion makes a superb performance test, he may not give his best qualities to his foals.

Therefore, the breeding commission pcollect their impressions of the youngest breedsires’ offspring each year at the regional foal shows and make a written description of each stallion’s first crop of foals. Normally, around 15-20 foals have been inspected during one or two years. The foal desciptions can be read on www.hestedata.dk and on the stallion list. They should always be studied by breeders who want to use a young stallion for his broodmare.

Below please find the list of stallions whose foals must be put into special heats for obligatory foal assessments, when entered for foal shows this year.
