Mentioned above are only the best of the best of Shedu Cats. Only the ones who have had a significant influence on the development and evolvement of Shedu’s.

And maybe one day your Shedu will meet all of the requirements to be listed, too.


In the Shedu breed there are four basic lines:


Ramses Line (black line) - That first black cat had incredible speed and managed to set huge records. In fact, some of them are still not beaten to this very day. Ramses is the fastest cat - 313 km/h. All of his offspring had shown great racing potential as well as a fancy dark coat.

But, one major issue with the cats of this line - their terrible temperament. Some say it’s a flaw, others believe it’s an asset. Three quarters of all fatal accidents involving Shedu Cats were caused by the cats from this line. And they are also not that good at endurance races.


Then, we get the most widespread and most balanced line, the Spartak/Spartan line (red line) - These cats are basically the root and the base of all Shedu’s. They are amazing at racing. Both long and short distances. Some of Spartak cubs got really close to breaking Ramses records. Actually, Spartak himself is a record holder previous best records, which Ramses then smashed.

The Spartak line is famous for their all around abilities and firm character. These cats are not sweet, playful little toys nor plain pets, but loyal companions/partners in both crime or hard earned victory. Brown and dark, tan shades are common among them.


The Savoy line (orange line) is one of a very small branch. But very notable. As the Ramses line has almost disappeared, Savoy’s cubs are currently the fastest on the track. They usually have a friendly type of character with fancy jaguar coats and there are even some black cats among them. The Savoy and Spartak lines are going head to head in official racing today.


The Mahogany line is really special one. (blue line)

These are princes and princesses of the Shedu Cats. Famous for their beautiful light colored coats involving a lot of cream and champagne genes. They have quite a lot of cats with long manes, as well, and are incredibly beautifully put together when looking at their conformation and built. They are the ‘’top models’’ among the Shedu’s. Maybe they are not that good at racing, but they have best characters and personalities around. They are willing partners and very sweet cats. They are best at trial rides and are very good at uncommon tasks. They are fast witted, human-oriented animals.


And of course there are always exceptions. For example, Mahogany was unbeatable at long distances, Alim won only three short distance races, and there was no cat sweeter or cuter than Rock Wave.

You've put so much thought into this!

A question - are the lines e.g. skipping generations?

 

So, can I read the sheet and assume that for example Tears of the Saints and Salem King are the parents of Goldeneye and The 9th, or could there be generations between them that are just not notable?

Thank you.
No, there are no skipped generations. 
Tears of the saints and Salem King are parents of golden eye and 9th.
And if you see names on colored plaquets, like Luka`s gold for example - it is one and the same cat. 
When bond between cats goes like that:

Cat I -------Cat II
           \
 ----------------
\                    \
Cat III           Cat IV

It means that Cat I and Cat II were bred, and cat III and IV are their cubs)

But there are some litters and cats that are not mentioned, because they were not bred. They were useless in breed developement.
there were bros and sisters in litters that are not mentioned here.

And when you see a cat popped up in the end of lineage while it was living in 6oth, then... well.. it`s all about artificial breeding. XD
