Holstein Mare Lines 3rd edition
For the past few decades, Holstein has delivered highly successful horses for breeding and sport. This didn´t just happen by accident, but has been the result of methodically bred mare lines and the knowledgeable experience of the breeders over many years. The understanding of this trade and its mare lines is essential. In its first two editions, "Holstein Mare Lines" was extremely well received and it was soon out of stock; therefore a new edition became necessary.
This current 3rd Edition is conceived as a reference tool. The extensive photo material contains 90 color photos and 60 historical black and white photos, with many never-seen-before, unpublished photos of stallion mothers and the mothers of internationally successful horses.
All stallions and international sport horses were assigned to mare lines. All available information, inland and abroad, was incorporated in this edition. The Holstein mare lines are indicated from the numbers 4 to 8900 and contain their own respective licensed stallions, whereas stallion licensing and stallion licensing test winners are clearly identified. 87 mare lines are represented with full-page genealogical family trees and from them - emerge the branches from which the licensed stallions originate.
Holstein Mare Lines, 3rd Edition is an absolute must for anyone who concerns themselves with the genetic connections to the Holstein breed.
