Directors 2013

 


 

 


 

 


In response to European Union requirements the CFIA (Canadian Food inspection Agency) has issued a new directive: MEAT HYGIENE DIRECTIVE. What this means for horse owners is that if there is any chance your horse will end up in the food chain it needs to have a complete health record for the 6 months before processing. CFIA plans to issue a paper certificate called EID (Equine Identification Document). The UELN (Equine Life Number) issue that the horse industry has been struggling with for several years now is related to this issue.


 

 

 


 

 

 

 

Please Note:

The CLRC  AGM will be held on Sat. April 5, 2014. At 2 pm representatives of Ag Canada  will be on hand to  discuss the implications of a possible repeal of the APA act.

We need a CTHS member to attend as our representative.   Let the CTHS  office  know ASAP if you can do this. Additionally, anyone is  welcome to  attend this meeting.


Inspection 2013

    There are 3 genetic disorders that particularly affect the Arabian breed. These are: Cerebellar Abiotrophy (CA), Combined Immunodeficiency Syndrome (SCID) & Lavender Foal Syndrome (LFS).  These are not very common  but often  prove fatal to foals. With DNA testing it is now  possible to establish a horse’s  likelihood of passing on the genes involved. Carriers can now be identified. If  a horse has been tested & does not have the gene it is considered “clear”.  If it has the gene it is considered a “carrier”. If  by some  rare chance 2 carriers are mated,  there is a 1 in 4 chance that the foal will be affected. If  a carrier   mates  with a “clear” horse, ˝ the offspring will be clear, & the other ˝ will be carriers.

  As the Trakehner breed has many Arabian ancesters,  it may be important to know the status of our breeding stock. The ATA encourages voluntary testing. Future stallions & some Arabian descended mares will have to be tested before being allowed into the ATA Stud Book.  This may be overkill. Testing  for this disorder is not cheap. Presently it is unavailable  from Maxxam who does our DNA testing.  Davis in California  can do it for $216.00 US.

  There is a brief article on genetic diseases in the March 2013 issue of  THE CANADIAN HORSE.

  The CTHS directors will bring this issue up at   our AGM. Your in-put is welcome.

The German Verband has once again defined the meaning of REINZUCHT (pure breeding) in Trakehner breeding. "The breeding goal is to be achieved by using the principles of Pure Breeding, However , this includes the use of genes from the English & /Arabian TB as well as Shagya-and Anglo Arabs. Manner & extent of the inclusion off stallions of other populations that can promote the breeding goals established in the breeding program must be determined in each individual case by the Execuitive Board. The resolution has to be unanimous." DER TRAKEHNER 2,2009 p. 31.

The Executive Board is made up of 15 members. This could theoretically allow the inclusion of, for example, a Hanoverian stallion. However in 1996, at the conference in Stuttgart, to this definition was added the rider: the first occurance of foreign genes could not appear later than the 6th generaltion. It was noted that which foreign genes could be allowed should be clarified

Since that time each year 1 or 2 (usually mares) have been allowed to pass into the Stud Book. BIOTOP was allowed into the Stud Book in this manner. (In the 6th generation of his pedigree is a 1933 Brandenburger mare.)

WAITAKI, defined as a Ukrainian sport horse of Trakehner origin was also permitted into the stud book in this manner.

The CTHS has always followed the principles of pure breeding. The Board does have the power to make exceptions, but has almost never done so.


Newly approved stallion PARADISE by Prince Habicht/Pirouette



Owners: Charles and Mary Connell, Ontario

     

Newly Approved Stallion in Ontario after 1st inspection in 2009.

March 6 2009 the branding/inspection team, consisting of Herbert Boettcher, Yvonne Brown, Judy Kirkby & Ingrid von Hausen made the 1st inspection of the year. As Judy had to come to Toronto any for a dressage steward's course & examination, we took advantage of her presence to conduct our 1st 09 inspection. The weather cooperated fully: it was one of the warmest days so far in March.

We traveled to Omemee (near Perterbrough) to inspect               PARADISE DCR 05 black stallion by Prinz Habicht out of Pirouette by Blinker, bred & owned by Charles & Mary Jo Connell.

The footing (icy & wet) was not sufficient for a proper evaluation of his gaits. We will reinspect his movement under better conditions. He is at least satisfactory all over, & has been approved for Trakehner breeding.

This stallion is good in bone structure, & frame , hoof , joints & angling. Good riding horse neck.
