Inbreeding tool for KWPN members
KWPN members can use My KWPN to further support their stallion choice for their mare(s) by studying the results of inbreeding and relationship of the intended sires. This useful online tool is available for all the harness horse, Gelderlander horse, dressage and jumping horse. With this inbreeding tool, you can easily see which stallions fit your mare in terms of inbreeding and blood distribution. The tool is available for mares that are at least 3 years old (or will be in the coming year).
The Inbreeding percentage gives you insight into how unique the foal you want to breed will be compared to the chosen population. When applying the Inbreeding Tool, the relationship percentage of the foal is also indicated. The lower the relationship percentage, the more unique the potential foal is within the population. The relationship percentage is the genetic variation between the animals, whereas the inbreeding percentage only says something about the genetic variation within an animal. An explanation of the percentages can be found on the page about inbreeding.
If you consult the details of each stallion in the inbreeding tool (by clicking on the orange plus sign), you will see the virtual pedigree of the foal. It is also possible to calculate the inbreeding for stallions from a different breeding direction. For example, you can choose breeding direction 'Gelderlander', even if you would like to breed your Gelderlander mare with a dressage stallion or a harness stallion. In this way, you will still get the data with regard to the Gelderlander population, as that is where you want to register the foal.
