    News letter from LG PRE ANCCE (Stud Book)

    To all breeders: In view of the recent deceit and accusations expressed by Ms. Barbara Currie in a letter received at this LG PRE stud book office, made public through digital media, we would like to express the following:       The LG PRE ANCCE (Stud Book) belongs to and serves breeder throughout the world, whatever their nationality may be or the organization and association they are a member of. Therefore, the said stud book is not involved in any of the political maneuvers that may arise within any of the said organizations or associations. In this sense, we would like to reassure and guarantee all breeders that the Stud Book will continue to document Purebred Spanish Horses (PRE) using any valid method. 
    ANCCE, in the light of pressure from breeders or groups of breeders, who seek impossible personal objectives, that are misinformed and causing confrontation among breeders, will not renounce its legal right granted by the corresponding authorities of Spain, to handle the Purebred Spanish Horse Stud Book. 
    ANCCE, contrary to what has been stated by Ms. Currie, recognizes and has always recognized, as would be only logical, the registrations and documents issued by the organization that handled the stud book until now—Cría Caballar—and for the past 100 years, whatever the registration format: passport or genealogical card. 
    ANCCE accepts the voluntary resignation to collaborate with the LG PRE ANCCE (Stud Book), made by Ms. Currie, in the name of the FOUNDATION.  As of now, LG PRE ANCCE (Stud Book) is holding conversation with the ANCCE representative in the USA to determine new collaboration formulas, with the hope of providing services as of February 2008. 
    The deadline of January 1, 2008, which had been established by the LG PRE Stud Book for stud farms to be updated and petitions for Ownership Carts, as well as for registrations of new foals, without any additional charge, will be extended until March 31, 2008.
    The FICCE, created in the past by ANCCE to channel the concerns of international breeders, does not represent ANCCE in any way, shape or form, nor does it represent the LG PRE ANCCE Stud Book. All to the contrary; it has become, in the hands of its president, the means to disclose her claims. The LG PRE ANCCE Stud Book feels disappointed for the treatment received by the current representative of THE FOUNDATION and its president, which was the first association to be recognized by ANCCE to collaborate with the LG PRE Stud Book. You must remember that in less than five months, four trips have been made for basic evaluations; there have been two Tribunals for Qualified Breeding Stock and a trip to the FOUNDATION office, which has been an exceptional effort for everyone. 

    Lastly, and after appearing in the media, I would like to confirm that LG PRE ANCCE has contracted the services of a new IT firm, SADIEL SA, which will substitute Melpi SL, in the development of software to handle the LG PRE Stud Book.
