Adding TCR Pedigree (Optional)

A TCR Pedigree is a pedigree compiled from the TCR database of TCR registered cobs


If TCR registered parents are added (declared) as TCR Pedigree on PART 2 of the registration application the breed selected by the applicant on PART 1 will be automatically over-ridden by another breed if the breed selected by the applicant does not matches the TCR Pedigree Registration Criteria. However, if only one TCR registered parent or neither parent is added (declared) on PART 2 of the registration application then TCR will record the cob's breed according to the breed selected by applicant on PART 1. If TCR does not agree that breed selected by the applicant on PART 1 best represents the cob's breed then TCR will contact the applicant with a view to reaching agreement.

Adding External Pedigree (Optional)

An External Pedigree is a pedigree compiled from the database of another registry or breeding organization


​Where TCR registered parents have parents, grandparents, great-grandparents or great-great-grandparents that are not registered with TCR but that are registered with another registry or breeding organization then an image of the External Pedigree produced by the other registry or breeding organization can be uploaded on PART 2 of the registration application at the same time as TCR registered parents are being added (declared) on PART 2 of the registration application. 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 TCR website even where some or all their parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and great-great-grandparents are registered with another registry or breeding organization and not with TCR.

TCR Pedigree Verification

If TCR registered parents are added (declared) on PART 2 of the registration application the declared parents 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.

External Pedigree Verification

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 produced by a registry or breeding organization that also requires pedigrees to be verified.
