Re: File on breeds prone to IR
Here is the list of choices you will see in the new CH that we have based on what we have seen here, and discussion with the CH committee. For simplicity sake, we did not list all variations of breeds, eg., Anglo-Arab, Brazilian QH, Mexican vs American Aztecas, etc.
Side bar: When we roll out the new CH, You will be able to indicate cross breeds. This is just the basic list.
Included here are breeds that typically do not have IR unless PPID is out of control. (See those marked **) We generalized warmbloods and fullsized drafts , because they typically do not suffered from IR at baseline. Draft ponies, however do so they are listed by breed. Many of the list do not (like QH, TB, Standardbred), but only through uncontrolled PPID.
So it's a mixed list. Does that make sense? There may be breeds we see pop up on an individual basis. If we get a dozen new reports of xyz breed not listed, we can add them to the list.
Hope this helps and not just confuse you.
