with PSHR’s name because it doesn’t have “Arabian” in it, making the point that Shagya is a sire‐line, not the breed name– the breed is Shagya‐Arabian not “Shagya”, as it is an Arabian breed; PShR Representative offered to change PShR’s name if ISG wanted PShR to do so.


• 100 NASS Inspection newsletters were offered to the ISG Delegates and they were a big hit!!!!


Breeding Committee Report – Adele Furby • Adele requested that the BoD waive the DNA verification of parentage for the dam of a 2007 filly whose parents are both NASS Approved into Book I. The filly is thus eligible for registration as a Purebred Shagya Arabian. This filly was acquired by the current owner/applicant in an equine rescue situation. The owner/applicant submitted a handwritten bill of sale from the owner/breeder stating the sire, and dam and all other relevant information. However, the dam is deceased and there is no DNA on record for the dam. Since this can be seen as a "hardship" situation, Adele suggested that NASS modify the requirement for this filly, by requiring DNA verification for the sire but not for the dam, as there is no reasonable doubt as to the dam of the filly, since the dam was bred and foaled at the breeder's/seller's farm. Adele also pointed out that up until the foals born in the 2007 year, DNA verification of parentage was only required for transported semen foals, not for foals bred and born on the same farm, so modifying this rule for this 2007 filly is not such a big change from recent NASS protocols. BOD approved


• Swiss Shagya Society has had a request from a mare owner who wants to use Elaine Kerrigan’s stallion for their mare which is registered in the Swiss Society (SAVS) – very rule conscience group and they need an actual document that says the stallion’s performance test has been waived, since he’s gone above and beyond in performance tests – but SAVS wants it on paper. Carol requests a copy of the document be put on file with his papers. AHA has everything that he’s done in their records. Adele requested Breeding Committee get copy also and it can be added to ISG database performance records. BOD approved
