Pedigrees

Internal (TCR) Pedigree

We record internal (TCR) pedigree. Internal (TCR) pedigree are ascendants (parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and great-great parents etc.) of TCR registered cobs that are registered with us under the names Traditional Irish Cob and Gypsy Cob.

External (Non-TCR) Pedigree

Because we record all Traditional Cob pedigree we also record external (non-TCR) pedigree. External (non-TCR) pedigree are ascendants (parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and great-great parents etc.) of TCR registered cobs that are registered elsewhere under the names Irish Cob, Gypsy Cob, Traditional Gypsy Cob, Tinker, Irish Tinker and Gypsy Vanner etc.

Declaring Pedigree

Declaring pedigree for your cob on the online TCR cob registration application is optional (and is therefore additional to registration). For this reason, if you do want to declare pedigree for your cob on the online TCR ob registration application you must first submit the completed registration application. When you submit the application you will then be provided with an option to click a 'Declare Pedigree' button. When you click the 'Declare Pedigree' button you will be able to declare your cob's pedigree including any recorded ascendant (parent, grandparent, great-grandparent or great-great grandparent) that is NOT registered with us (i.e. that is registered elsewhere).

Pedigree Verification

If you do declare pedigree (at least the sire and dam) on the online TCR cob registration application then you will be required to verify the declared sire and dam by uploading to the application an image of either a completed TCR Covering Certificate (or other completed Covering Certificate) or a DNA parentage test report.
