First paragraph of the introduction is reproduced here. Follow the link to read more. This report comes in six parts which may be found on the same website, under 'Publications' - 'Australia'
This report follows on from the 2007 Analysis of the Australian Connemara Pony Population by considering the stallion sub-lines available in Australia in 2013. To make sense of the data and the commentary it is suggested that readers should first review the 2007 analysis report AND the Commentary on the 2013 Stallion list for Ireland. The uniqueness of many of Australian lines of Connemara pony is underestimated by their breeders. It is hoped that this paper will help increase awareness of the genetic diversity offered by some of these ponies. Individual breeders need to make wise, well thought out decisions to ensure the continuance of the breed and we hope the analyisis of this paper will encourage this.

A report on Ireland's stallion lines is next, BUT will be a while longer due to the much larger numbers involved.
