@Nikki-Calvaria my username is indeed different from my display name, but i am not
sure anymore, i would be thankful if Elsie-Spectre is able to find it because i don't know what's
wrong with it anymore
Kronborg Stables was founded in the year 2017 in England, but we’ve a way longer breeding experience with Trakehners which is going back in the year 2013. Ronan Dhall ist he head and manager of the facilities and after a few months of thoughts we decided in the whole team that we want to add the Arabian breed into our Stables. We started to search for good SEA mares and stallions, which could be a good base to start our new breeeding program. A short time after that we found good lines to start our breeding programs with the goal to improve the Arabian breed and some rare Tarkehner lines of ours.
Our Arabians are currently showing in Endurance, Liberty and in the big english disciplines like Show Jumping, Dressage and Eventing to get along with different talented bloodlines. We hope to increase our lines, thats the reason why we’re looking for new SEA horses. So as you can see we aren’t a established breeding program yet, but we are working hard to become one and we’re sure that we can manage this task. Our whole Team agreed that Sahra Amun Ra would be a perfection addition to our team. Not only because of his pedigree he would be a good supplement. The Endurance team would be very happy to welcome such a beautiful stallion with his own personality, who already got the first experiences of showing in Endurance and where his own rider could build up a strong bond. So they could improve together. Also we've already two lovely youngster which has some Sahra lines in their pedigrees. They're absolutely sweethearts with their characters and their whole appearance, so we're sure that we could came along with him pretty good.
We’re sure that we’d have a long way to go and work with him, but we want to give him the chance for his hopefully forever home and become a star in our Arabian program. In the next time he would stay with our other show horses until he has settled down and collected enough experience in the show ring until he'd used in our breeding program. Of course he's a high hope for us and our whole Arabian program.
We have decided to re-open the BC Genetics Lab with a significant face-lift! This is intended to help replace the loss of registrars individually processing horses at registration and offering critique, as well as to help anyone who is struggling with a genotype or coat color.
When should I use the BC Genetics Lab?
If you are having trouble understanding a horse's color, genotype, or are just unsure about the realism of a horse you've made, please feel free to submit it to the lab. We in the lab will offer advice and constructive criticism on any horse you submit!
Does this affect registration?
No- the Genetics Lab is completely separate from registration. This is just a tool to help you understand genetics and create more realistic horses! Horses must have a main site profile to be submitted to the lab, however.
How long does it take?
Each horse is processed individually by a staff member. Wait times ranging between a few hours and a few days are to be expected.
Can I apply to be a Genetics Lab staff member?
Absolutely! Any member who has a solid understanding of genetics, coats, and breed conformation and would like to join the BC team is welcome to contact me about joining the lab team.
Additional Equine Genetics Resources:
Our Slack channel #color-genetics is great for live help with any genetics questions or curiosities you may have. There are always great people hanging out to help! If you haven't signed up for Slack yet, join us here! The Jennifer Hoffman Genetics Calculator is also a fabulous way to visualize how certain genes and patterns interact. It's not 100% accurate (contrary to popular belief, usually W genes aren't homozygous embryonic lethal!) but it is a very fun and well-made resource, and a great way to learn the basics.
Feel free to post any questions you have about the Lab or your results in this thread!
