Study of remarkable ancestors offer information about breeding methods in analyzed population (origins, ascendants selection) and the future evolutive possibilities of this (small number of ancestors, maintaining of genetic similarity with remarkable ascendants or preferring of descendants from some individuals, may contribute to inbreeding and genetic drift). The results put in front that the share of genetic relationship between sire stallions with population is between 0% and 24.45%. A number of 8 stallions have a genetic similarity with population bigger than that (20.20% - 24.45%). Small differences between sire stallions reveal the concerns for maintaining a big number of males necessary for avoiding inbreeding and also to ensure a normal population evolution.
