The quest for the original Kinsky:
Kinsky horses used to be popular in Czechia, then known as 'Bohemia', during the 19th century. However, the turmoils of the 20th century led to the eventual reduction in the purebred members of the Kinsky breed.
By the 21st century, the original, pure Kinsky faced extinction. Therefore, in 2005, a new breeding program was initiated for breeding back the original Kinsky. As part of this program, pure breeding is always preferred, but breeders can also cross Kinsky horses with Thoroughbreds with some caveats.
One, a Kinsky must have at least one Kinsky parent, meaning that it is not allowed to cross two Thoroughbreds together. Two, only Thoroughbreds who fit the standard of the original Kinsky are allowed in the breeding program. Three, Thoroughbred mares are not allowed in the main Kinsky book, but are registered in a separate, auxiliary book. Four, each Kinsky has their 'original Kinsky genes' being calculated as a way to monitor the progression of the program towards the original Kinsky type.
The purpose of the Anglo-Kinsky:
While the regulations listed above work well in the real world, they are a bit tricky to enforce in Horse Isle using one studbook. Therefore, we created a sub-registry for the Kinsky breed, intended for Kinsky x Thoroughbred crosses, to achieve a similar effect.
Anglo-Kinskies, who basically carry 50% Kinsky blood and 50% Thoroughbred blood, can be crossed with regular Kinsky horses to produce purebred Kinsky horses. This ensures that purebred Kinsky horses in the game have mostly Kinsky blood, and are therefore mostly Kinsky rather than mostly Thoroughbred. This also allows Kinsky breeders to incorporate Thoroughbred blood into their Kinsky breeding programs, but in a reasonable manner.
An Anglo-Kinsky can be created by crossing a Kinsky with a Thoroughbred, or by crossing two Anglo-Kinskies. They are not allowed to be crossed with Thoroughbreds. Crossing a pure Anglo-Kinsky with a pure Kinsky will result in a pure Kinsky foal.
The following are the: range, average, (SD), and MOE of performance metrics of ordered Kinskies (not bred ones). In rare cases, horses might have metrics outside of the range. Breeders can produce horses that are beyond this range.
Speed: 16.4-18.0, 17.3 (0.3), 0.07.
Sprint: 41-53, 46 (2), 0.47.
Accel: 0.76-0.94, 0.86 (0.03), 0.01.
Decel: 0.70-0.85, 0.78 (0.03), 0.01.
Jump: 5.14-5.39, 5.27 (0.05), 0.01.
Pull: 1.27-2.01, 1.70 (0.14), 0.03.
Turning: 45.01-57.66, 51.66 (3.05), 0.6.
Reverse: 2.4-3.0, 2.7 (0.1), 0.03.
Stamina: 47.69-53.26, 50.57 (1.29), 0.25.
Reaction: 0.79-0.89, 0.85 (0.02), 0.00.
Coats & Height:
Kinsky horses are also called "The Golden Horses of Bohemia" because their coat has a golden, metallic sheen.
Avoid crossing heterozygous metallic Kinskies, as it might lead to a non-metallic foal.
Colors: most Kinskies have a light-colored cream-diluted coat. The colors of bay, dark-bay ('brown'), dun, chestnut, and black exist but are uncommon, with the latter being extremely rare.
Additionals: flaxen, linebacked, rabicano, sooty. The coat is always solid and is on the light side, unless heavily sooty.
Height: 15.1hh* to 17.2hh.
* While regular Kinskies are required to be at least 15.2hh in height, Kinsky mares in the auxiliary book are allowed to be as short as 15.1hh.
