The latest statistical information on HWSD is available via the HWSD facebook page. This is report is about the current information on HWSD in the Connemara Pony population of Australia. 

What is happening in Australia has implications for the rest of the world. 

Because of the fragmentation of test data across multiple laboratories it is no longer possible to produce HWSD analyses for the various jurisdictions where Connemara ponies are bred . 

The information supplied previously from VGL is very useful from a retrospective perspective and has been used in this analysis.  The current data from VGL is no longer indicative of the HWSD testing situation worldwide.

Only the Connemara Pony Breeder's Society of Australia (CPBSA) have seen fit to provide their raw data on HWSD testing. Thank you CPBSA.

It is sad that there has been such a distinct lack of co-operation to release raw data from other breed societies and testing laboratories.

The report has not be reproduced here because it is not possible to secure the document on this platform.  Sadly, previous work presented on this site has been selectively copied and pasted in an attempt to present alternate views to that which was originally intended.  Thus this report is only available as a secure pdf file.

As there is no download facility available on this platform, you will need to use the link in the first paragraph.
