Haflinger Breeding stallions
Purebreed Tyrolean Haflinger
Quality rating “liz.”: Licensed Tyrolean Haflinger cover stallion
As early as 1945, the functionaries of the Tyrolean Haflinger Breeding Association knew that it was absolutely necessary to make stallion breeding a top priority. Successful, forward-looking and above all genetically secure horse breeding is possible only by means of regulated selection criteria for stallion candidates, strict yet necessary selection, and the joint breeding of the purebred Tyrolean Haflinger stallions.
This breeding and selection system, which has been developed and applied by the Tyrolean Haflinger Breeding Association for decades, is certainly unique, and one of the strictest in the world, guaranteeing the genetic pool of all seven bloodlines to the exclusion of any “uniquely bred products” among the Haflinger breed.
What does the quality rating “liz.” Licensed Tyrolean Haflinger stallion mean?
The rating seal liz. Tirol guarantees lineage from absolute pure breeding, from genetically secured female and male lines. It stands for top Haflinger stallions that stand out as a result of 2 ½ years of natural herding, with impeccable social behaviour, strength of character, good nature, performance capacity and willingness.
The rating liz. Tirol guarantees robust stallion breeding with at least 40% grazing on the mountain pasture in every weather.
It promises a multiple, strict selection by horse specialists. The careful and intensive preparation, in various different partial tests, for the stallion selection is mandatory, just like the internationally recognised 30-day station test, with concluding performance test, which is prescribed for all 3-4 year-old liz./T stallions.
No other country or nation has such or similar quality criteria for stallion breeding. For this reason, the licensed Tyrolean cover stallions from the Fohlenhof Ebbs are something very special. The rating sea liz. Tirol guarantees this.
