Usage details

  • name defaults to article title if omitted.
  • All other parameters are optional and will be ignored if left blank
  • The deprecated template {{Infobox horse}} redirects here for backwards compatibility. Please use this template for new articles.
  • If you want to specify multiple entries for the altname parameter, these must be listed using {{unbulleted list}}; please don't use <br>.
  • The comments at the beginning and end don't affect the appearance of the table but please include them to help newcomers understand what's going on when they edit the page.
  • Try to be sure all infobox parameters are sourced in the article body text or cited in the infobox itself.

Infobox variables

  • name: Breed name as in article title.
  • image: The name of the image (leave off File:)
    Use the best breed photo available for the infobox image; the ideal is a full body image of a well-conformed animal that has proper breed phenotype, facing left "into" the article. However, even a relatively poor quality image is acceptable if it adequately conveys the breed character.
  • image_caption: A caption that describes the image.
  • altname: Other names by which the breed is known by English speakers. Common nicknames can be included
  • country: Country or countries of origin, preferably at time of origin to avoid squabbling over current political boundaries.
  • color or colour: Only use if an important breed characteristic; main description should be in article body text
  • height: Use either the general height parameters OR the split male/female height parameters, not both. Only use male/female parameters when sexual dimorphism is sourced, either as a breed standard or by other reliable studies. Data may be provided as a range or as an average.
    WP:LOCALCONSENSUS of WikiProject Equine is to generally use the {{hands}} conversion template or, where the nation of origin measures the breed in metric units, {{convert}} may be used as in this example: {{convert|148|to|152|cm|hand in|2}}. However, if there is no reliable source for a measurement in hands, omission of the template may occur on a case by case basis.
  • weight: Use either the general weight parameters OR the split male/female weight parameters, not both. Only use male/female parameters when sexual dimorphism is sourced, either as a breed standard or by other reliable studies. Data may be provided as a range or as an average.
  • status: Generally leave blank or omit unless there is a specific breed conservation status of concern (such as "endangered" or "critical")
  • extinct: Only use if breed is extinct, otherwise leave blank or omit
  • Breed standards:
    Up to 6 different groups (organizations) and their standards can be specified; both variables (group1 and std1) for each group are required if any are used at all.

Microformats

This template emits a "species" (or "biota") microformat.

The microformat is created by the use of class="biota", and classes for individual taxonomic ranks, such as class="domain" in a span around {{{domain}}} (full list). Please do not change or remove those classes other than as part of development of the microformat. For background information, see microformats on Wikipedia and the microformat specification.
