A stallion in the FPS which has successfully completed the rigorous approval process and is permitted to breed to FPS mares. Approved Stallions may be identified as such by the fact that a number follows the name, (ex: Lammert 269, Wander 352, etc..). The number indicates the stallion’s place in the list of stallion’s approved since the FPS’s founding, (so, Lammert was the two hundred and sixty ninth stallion approved, and so on..). However, if a stallion is disqualified, they may retain their name and number. Stallions which have not been approved for breeding are referred to as Foal Book stallions. Approved stallions may also be referred to as Studbook stallions.
