Number one in breeding with Friesian horses is to breed a healthy horse. That starts with avoiding a risk mating, a mating with two carriers of dwarfism or hydrocephaly. As an owner it’s important to know the status of your mare. If she is a carrier, choose a free stallion, always.
The KFPS member council has decided that owners who do a risk mating with their mare (combining a carrier mare with a carrier stallion) first receive a warning letter, a second time a fine of 2000 euros follows.
