4-. LG PRE ANCCE Stud Book
: Mr. Juan Pedro Domecq offered an extensive presentation of the present, past and future of the Stud Book as handled by ANCCE, stating the problems encountered by the Association and the various solutions taken.

Mr. Conde stated that he was not satisfied with the results obtained, but that under no circumstance did this indicate that work has not been proceeding in the right direction since the situations that had negatively influenced the efficient handling had been clarified.

The problem created by the USA Foundation having separated from the LG of Spain and creating a private register was debated.

It was accepted that there had been delays in the shipment of the documentation and that there had, in some cases, been printing errors and a commitment was made to return the cards after having been completed correctly.

A commitment was also made to ship all documentation for the foals that were born in 2007 and before May of this year, as, now that the dynamics of the Stud Book have been standardized, the shipment of documentation will be automatic
