    Default Is KWPN the only SB to have Stallion test/foal inspections reports on website?

    Can we make a list of resources the different studbooks have available for members and/or non-members. Information on what they offer, who can access it, and where it is at (link) would be awesome. Such information is such a great resource for the mare owner, but I am only familiar with KWPN. What do the other offer?

    So KWPN offers for approved stallions:
    *Conformation Photo
    *Pedigree
    *Test results and written report
    *Characteristics/Traits (conformation)
    *Offspring Report of 10-30 foals evaluating conformation/ development/ movement (and more recently "mares should be/shouldn't be..."
    *List of approved children and grand children

    Can be slow to update
    Free to the public
    Not available for most Erkend or any NA licensed stallions

    Really? Nothing else is offered? Do you all go off of what the SO says and watching foals on youtube to choose a stallion?

    OldNA use to list all the foal inspection & MPT scores in it's year book, going to members only. Again, no stallion scores.

    RPSI does the same for foals -- they don't have a MPT. Never any scores for stallions though.

    Ditto for the NA stallion testing. The end results are posted, but not the each individual score.

    So ,yeah, you are suppose to take the SO at his/her word on all this stuff.

    Great system, huh?

    I remember following a link to the KWPN site from another thread and being really, really impressed with the information that is available for some stallions. That thread wasn't an appropriate place to comment on how much I like their site - but this one is.

    Big thumbs up.

    AHHA reports these numbers on their sight as well. I would never just go with what the SO said.
