10° Convegno New findings in equine practice
Druento (Torino), 31 ottobre/1 Novembre 2008
Genealogical data of Monterufoli pony population was analysed in order to highlight the actual demographic structure of the breed.
The database contained 228 information belonging to 60 stallions and 168 mares
At the third generation only 10.58% of the ancestors is known
Contribution of the ancestors is strongly unbalanced
4 stallions represented 51% of the variability and they are father 106 times on a total of 133 observations
Monitoring and selection of mating strategies are of paramount importance for this breed
Information provided by molecular data could be useful to assist the mating plan strategies of the Cavallino di Monterufoli breed
