Hello there!! I am LiddleCherry, and I am the Drammen Group Admin in charge of breedings. This is the official breeding journal of the Drafts of Drammen breed, and is to make it easier for breeders to breed. These rules are to be followed, and if not, the breeding will not go ahead. If you have any questions you can comment, note the group, or note me directly.

Breeding Rules


1. All horses must be of age to be eligible for breeding. Stallions must be 4 years old, and Mares must be 5 years old. All horses must also have been registered with the group with a reference with the proper information (age, gender, genotype, etc.). There must also be at LEAST 1 other drawing of them.

2. All breedings must be approved before a foal can be designed. Only one person must contact the group. This can be the person who will own the foal or a parent of the foal (generally whoever is going to design the horse).

3. Those on the burn list are forbidden to breed a horse, nor are they allowed to own a horse. 

4. The person sending the breeding note in must be listed on the two horse's references.

To Send in A Breeding


1. Make sure both Drammens are registered and that your name is on both of their Breeding Slot lists.

2. Make sure all payment is complete, such as art and a breeding picture.

3. Send in a note to the group titled "Breeding". In it include:

Name of Parents and Link to Refs
Genotypes of Both Parents
Eye Color and Tail Type of Both Parents

4. When I am able to I will reply with your genotypes and colours for your foal. There will be 2-3, depending on how many possibilities there are for your foal. 

5. You may then design your foal!!

Breeding Limits


These limits are put in place to prevent mass breedings of Drammens. But remember, just because you can breed your horse that many times doesn't mean you have too!

Drammens have a total of 20 breeding slots, with a few more being able to be earned by certain ranks. There will no longer be a Monthly Breeding Limit for Drammens.

 

If you have any questions about anything please ask!!

Sorry, but when we introduced them, there were only 2 adult drammens to even be bred, but as the group starts to pick up, we realized that we haven't even decided if the Snowflake expression is dominant or recessive. =/ Which is very important when it comes to breeding for a snowflake.

Sorry for the inconvience. I can assure you, however, that they will be allowed to breed in the future, just not for a little while.

Hmm if you want them really rare have them even hard to get if both parents have it. Like I out six of getting that gene (who ever is making the foal can roll a dice and if it lands on six it gets that gene) Just a thought to keep it rare, you can also do that with other rare genes.

No problem, I still have to get him to second star anyways.

the thing is, if we do that, then that means people will have to send in breeding notes and we'll have to roll for Snowflakism for everyone. At that point, it might be easier just implementing a whole genetic system like other breeds and then add a new mutation every year.

True, I guess that way will be better. Can't wait to breed my horse though!

I know I can't wait either, lol. I've been wanting a Snowflake for a while. But I think we're going to have to figure out what sort of mutations we want. Because one of the Snowflakes can be considered a different mutation since it's a white base. So I was thinking of two mutations so far:

- Bleach Base Mutation
- Snowflake/Blanket Paint Mutation

Your Snowflake doesn't fit into these two groups, so maybe the following would be also done:

- Rain Drop Paint Mutation


But anywho... ideas are always appreciated

Hmm seems like a good idea having the three OR have mine as a one of a kind :P I know the snowflake designs I do love! A little hard though to do the markings but I still love em!

if we make him a one of a kind, he might not be able to breed later on.

Before we work on genetics however, we need to figure out if there are any other mutations we want to add or others might want to see. Only so when we work on imports and everything we can figure out what we want to stay rare
