Updated list

We have now included the current updated list of ANZ Chefs-de-race.  I will post a little more about these updates and their importance to the breed.  We trust that the new additions will assist in students of dosage in assessing current pedigrees.  There is still a long way to go with the retirement of Dr Roman, and there are a number of gaps in overseas influences.  These will be addressed in the future, as will a project to include some of the neglected historical influences.
