A TCR Pedigree is a pedigree that is compiled from the TCR database of TCR registered cobs. A TCR Pedigree therefore shows a TCR registered cob and any of its TCR registered parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and great-great-grandparents.
If TCR Pedigree is added (declared) on a registration application the declared must be verified by one of the following methods: -
• If both the sire and dam are declared then both the sire and the dam must be verified by an image of either a completed Covering Certificate or a DNA parentage test report. (Download TCR Covering Certificate)
• If only the dam is declared then the dam must be verified by an image of either a veterinary completed TCR Dam Verification or a DNA parentage test report. (Download TCR Dam Verification Form)
• If only the sire is declared then the sire must be verified by an Image of a DNA parentage test report.
An External Pedigree is an image uploaded to the TCR database of a pedigree that was compiled from the database of another registry or breeding organization (not the TCR database). Although a stallion or mare that is TCR registered (and that is therefore recorded on the TCR database) is automatically shown on a TCR Pedigree as a parent, grandparent, great-grandparent or great-great-grandparent, a stallion or mare that is not TCR registered (and that is therefore not recorded on the TCR database) cannot be shown on a TCR Pedigree as a parent, grandparent, great-grandparent or great-great-grandparent. The value of an External Pedigree uploaded to the TCR database is therefore that recorded parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and great-great-grandparents of TCR registered parents can be viewed on the online TCR database even where some or all their parents, grandparents, great-grandparents or great-great-grandparents are registered with another registry or organization and not with TCR. An External Pedigree can also be kept with a TCR Registration Book. This is a valuable facility for owners of stallions and mares who want to register their stallions and mares with TCR but their stallions and mares already have some generations of pedigree recorded (built up) with another registry or breeding organization.
NOTE: Because TCR only records pedigrees on its database that have been verified, TCR will delete from its database an uploaded External Pedigree that was not compiled (made) a registry or breeding organization that also requires pedigrees to be verified.
