HWSD – Purchasing and Breeding Connemara Ponies – Important Information
PURCHASING and BREEDING CONNEMARA PONIES
Always check the HWSD status of the pony you plan to purchase or breed from and to.
N/N (not affected/not a carrier), N/HWSD (not affected/carrier) and HWSD/HWSD (affected) are the three statuses.
The status will be printed in the pony’s passport on the back page.
Always ask to see the passport to check. Do not accept a verbal statement on the status.
If purchasing at ‘the sales’ the official green Connemara passport will be available to view in the sales office. White passports are not Connemara passports.
