The purpose of an Equine Pedigree Chart is to graphically depict the ancestry or lineage of a horse. Equine Pedigree charts, or simply pedigree charts, are most often used to indicate the ancestry of registered (or pedigreed) horses and race horses which are almost always registered / pedigreed. A pedigreed horse is one that has its ancestry recorded. Often this is tracked by a major equine association or registry. The number of generations required varies from breed to breed, but all pedigreed horses have papers from the registering body that attest to their ancestry. The word "pedigree" first appeared in the English language in 1410 as "pee de Grewe", "pedegrewe" or "pedegru", each of those words being borrowed from the Middle French "pié de grue", meaning "crane’s foot". This comes from a visual analogy between the trace of the bird's foot and the lines used in official genealogical registers to graphically indicate a genealogical tree.
