The KWPN society has published the list of newly licensed colts which have been approved for breeding this 2020 season without a performance test.

Twenty-eight dressage stallions passed the medical tests and are now allowed to cover in 2020. They will need to do a performance test in 2021.

Breeding Permit in Corona Year

Due to the corona pandemic, the spring KWPN stallion performance test was cancelled. Because of these extraordinary times, the KWPN board of directors decided to allow the 2020 approved colts to breed this season without a performance test, if they passed the health check. 

The newly approved colts had to undergo a medical exam and pass the medical standard set by the KWPN for X-rays, OCD, for roaring/breathing, they had to get a WFFS test and a sperm quality test.

Absentees from the List

Remarkably absent from the lists are three three Helgstrand owned stallions: the crowd favourite and Oldenburg bred stallion Total Maclaren (by Totilas x De Niro), the premium KWPN stallion Majestic Taonga (by Toto Jr x Jazz), and the auction price highlight Morricone VDT (by Toto Jr), who has been renamed My Toto. 

Also absent from the list are the premium stallions Maxson (by Johnson x Negro), owned by Gert-Jan van Olst, and the chestnut Mowgli VOD (by Desperado x Jazz). Mowgli was already withdrawn from potential breeding a month ago as he turned out to have a testicular issue.
