What is a ______ (fill in Dutch, German, Swiss, American) Warmblood?

If you've ever wondered what kind of horse is actually a ___warmblood, this website is a handy dandy tool to be able to accurately look up their bloodlines*.

So if you've ever wondered how to look up a pedigree to see who is who, bloodlines and what percentage of Thoroughbred blood our wonderful Waldaire carried - HERE is his pedigree.

You'll see he carries just 25.78% blood (listed as xx/ox or TB/Anglo Arab) - which is part of why he crosses so well on mares that are more "blooded" or full TB or Arabian.

I can not explain how valuable a website like this one is, really. For one, it is secure - which means only members can login and enter data (no monkey business or fibbing). Secondly, it does the mathematical calculations and can be used to go back multiple generations. Third, it is secure. If I had a nickel for every time I've had to login to Allbreedpedigree and remove a Gotland Pony from Waldaire's 6th bank balance would be healthier. ;)

So check out the names and pedigrees of famous horses! Find out more of who's who in their genetics!

* - only caveat - this is a database that is based out of Holland and Germany. Many North American bred horses are not listed, so pedigrees will appear incomplete.
