Reference Stallion Pedigrees
· The difference between Reference Sires and Covering Sires:
o Reference Sire pages: A complete catalog page (depending on which pedigree type is chosen) on each sire that the sale creator wishes to highlight with a more in-depth pedigree page in the catalog.
o These pages incur the same charge as the sale horse pages
o Covering Sire, Foal at Side and Embryo at Side paragraphs: A paragraph about a stallion that is a) designated as bred to a mare, b) siring a foal selling at side, or c) siring an embryo selling with a mare in the catalog.
o These paragraphs are automatically built at no charge by the program
· Steps for Obtaining Reference Sire Pedigree Pages
o A “Reference Sires” session is provided in the Edit Current Sale Information screen
o Choose your pedigree type in the drop-down menu and Save Sale Info
o Multiple Reference Sire sessions can be added if more than one page type is desired
· Name the sessions differently (Example: Ref Sire 1, Ref Sire 2)
o Any stallions that are given a Reference Sire page should have “Reference Sire” as their session name
o The top of these pages will say “Reference Sire”
o The “Reference Sire” section can be printed to a PDF or exported to an .RTF just like the sale horses (see Reports & Exports instructions)
o Remove “Hip Number” and “Consigned by” manually
o The entire family tree can be removed manually if no family tree is desired
o If you won’t use the Reference Sire session, delete the session or simply leave it empty.
