Genetics

banner-8

Genetic Studies combines current knowledge with Stallion Selection in an endeavor to assist Friesian Breeders in selecting the most appropriate Stallion to produce the genetically superior, most durable offspring. With the Foundation's intimate knowledge of the breed's genetic flaws, it also has the opportunity to avoid the procreation of foals that may have a shortened life expectancy or a life of misery and hopefully genetically superior.

The Foundation consultants will actively assist breeders who seek advice on the genetically appropriate stallion for their mare to insure a genetically superior appropriate match. With a database second only to the KFPS, the Foundation and its consultants, will hopefully assist in minimizing the potential for genetic flaws and health concerns to protect a foal from a life of misery.
