CPRWA IS A REGISTRY OF THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN BUCKSKIN ASSOCIATION Inc. FOR ALL REGISTRATION MEMBERSHIP INFO AND UPCOMING SHOW AND RESULTS PLEASE GO TO http://www.buckskinswa.com
The Cremello Perlino Registry Western Australian or CPRWA, as it is more commonly known, was first established in July 2010. The main purpose is to help establish a better understanding of these remarkable cream coloured horses and ponies with there ice blue eyes and to dismiss the myth that they are someway connected to a lethal gene. There are no known hereditary defects associated with these horses. They are not albinos, in fact there is no documented case of albinism in horses as yet. They have pigmented skin and are no more prone to skin cancers than any other horse. More importantly they all seem to display a calm temperament and have a good disposition. Breeding Cremello and Perlino together is also perfectly safe and this has been done in Nebraska US since 1919.
The registry has been established to promote the Breeding, Registration & Showing of Cremello & Perlino horses in Western Australia. and to keep the revenue raised by doing that in this state for the benefit of breeders in general. The CPRWA is initially a colour registry, but as cremello and perlino can be bred true to colour, the registry may be set as a breed registry in the future. We recognise respective breeds, but our primary interest is in horses that carry the pure colour genetics required to be registered. We are affiliated with the Western Australian Buckskin Association. All Society's registrations are transferable & with each society offering reciprocal membership and showing rights.
The third main reason for setting up the CPRWA registry is to supply a reliable registry of horses suitable for breeders, who would like to breed Buckskin and Palomino coloured horses and ponies. Breeding a Perlino or Cremello to Chestnut, Bay Brown or Black, give a 100% chance of breeding Buckskin or Palomino. Understanding the varying combinations of the Black gene and the Agouti allele that both parents carry will help to narrow the probability more precisely as to which colour and shade of colour is likely but you will defiantly have a Buckskin or Palomino.
